    Hello Lars,
    in this case, too, I enjoy very much the fluidity and the graphics of the reflection, the clarity of the three buildings hasn't been undermined at all and they look intriguingly bound together in a single frame. It must be the perspective, the fluidity and the colours that make me think of a waterfall. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Ciao Silvio,
    magnifico l' effetto della prospettiva dinamica e dell' inquadratura stretta, hai esaltato le forme ed il complesso di linee architetturali, creando anche un' impressione 3D. I colori sono insoliti e bellissimi, le tessiture ed i nitidi dettagli hanno gran significato come sempre. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buona serata,

    Hello dear Takero,
    I think that the monochrome has enhanced the power and interest of both the action and the main character, also the significance of the interaction between the two people. The sharpness, the naturalness and the cultural impact of the scene are exquisite. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Ciao Carlo,
    bellissimo dettaglio, ben inquadrato per fare un' immagine grafica ed atmosferica, dove la forma del strumento, la tessitura, il colore brillante e caloroso ed i riflessi, costruiscono una piccola storia intima ed interessante. Complimenti e grazie!

    Hello Ike,
    this is a lovely image, characteristic of both the place (I think) and the season. I like very much the perspective of the path and the view between the trunks at left. The colours are natural and delightful, the atmosphere calm and soothing. Very inviting indeed. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Bulent,
    I like very much the intimacy and the underlying intensity of this scene, the casual chat of the two neighbours momentarily interrupted by an "intruder". A wonderful decisive moment with one neighbour still talking and the other looking towards the lens bearing a very intriguing expression. The tight framing, the vivid, natural colours and the fine clarity enhance our impression of setting, daily life and characters. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Ciao Luciano,
    hai realizzato la tua idea creativa in maniera eccellente. Mi piace molto l' apparente semplicita' della composizione, l' effettiva combinazione del edificio iconico con un "simbolo" del tourismo. I colori ed i dettagli dell' architettura sono meravigliosi, la nitidezza e' davvero affascinante. Complimenti e grazie!

    Καλησπέρα Δάνο,
    μια ασυνήθιστη και συναρπαστική εικόνα, το καδράρισμα και η ευκρίνεια είναι άριστα και βοηθούν πραγματικά τον θεατή να παρακολουθήσει τη δράση. Μου αρέσει πολύ η δυναμική της κίνησης και η ισορροπημένη σύνθεση που πέτυχες σε κλάσματα δευτερολέπτου. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
    Να είσαι καλά, καλό σου βράδυ,

    Hello Pedro,
    The clock tower is quite impressive and I see several fine buildings along the square, especially the pastel coloured ones to the left. I think the colours generally benefit from the grey sky. The photo has a fine clarity.

    Hello Lucas

    I'm always drawn for some reason, to monochrome images, and this one, with its strong contrasts and chiaroscuro effect, really exploits the b/w medium to its maximum. A good workaday subject too.

    Hello Denis

    I thought the cloud in the background was a snowy mountain when I first looked at the thumbnail. But it's still the cloud which creates the composition, echoing, as it does, the maze of white dwellings in the foreground. And that orange tower set on the thirds line is the icing on the cake. Nice one.

    Hello Bertrand

    I must say that normally I'm not a fan of such radical and obvious pp work, but here I'll admit that it works well. You've removed (we don't know what) fore- and background and reduced the image to its graphic and essential features.

    Hello Silvio,
    It's a wonderful and simple church with clean and attractive lines. I like this photo just for this fine church, but I also very much like the contrast of the very dark blue clouds and the superb light shining on the brown hill.

    Hello György,
    There is a reminiscence of Stephen Spielberg in the silhouettes of people under the blazing sun, walking maybe towards the UFO that just landed. Or maybe they are aliens coming towards us. Very good use of the light and contrasts anyway, but I can't see any of the WS photos you have promised.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Claude

    Excellent and graphic image: I like it a lot. I might like it even more without the orange plastic outboard dinghy in the frame, but it was so close, you couldn't really consider cropping it out.

    Hello Sven

    I've seen the "solution" to the puzzle, and it's a wonderfully inventive sculpture (?), but I prefer this more radical and edgy close-up. The angry, strong colour, and the well-placed leaves are all we are given in this tight frame, and all we need!

    Hello Christiane

    Great idea, but I think you've been defeated by the low light: although there's no EXIF data provided, this has all the hallmarks of camera-shake induced by slow shutter speed, and insufficient ISO. A shame as it's a strong composition, and beautifully graphic.

    Regards
