    Many terrific pictures in your Morocco gallery, dear Gilad. Picking a favourite among them, this one just edges it. Great dof, leaving the curves soft and out of focus, yet capturing the subtleties of the blue clothes of the man. Him sitting just beyond yet another curve, leaving out a bit of the bottom, creates an effect of him floating in air and adds yet more mystery to the shot. Excellent picture!

    Hi Frank,
    I am surprised to see so much snow, but of course this is at a very high altitude. Here in Gothenburg we have absolutely nothing... Checking the map I realise that we have been here, but at a very different season. This view is also very beautiful!

    Hi Paja,
    A very well composed picture with interesting details against a wall with different colours from light and shadows. Excellent sharpness.

    Hi Harriet,
    This is indeed a very grey picture but I can find some colour spots on the boats here. I can agree with you, November was certainly a very grey month, but in my experience, it always is! A very good picture with the long lines of poles in the calm water.

    Hi John,
    I guess we are all dreaming of springtime now, when days are so short. But soon we will see the sun returning. A very beautiful view indeed, I was here in 1958 (but that particular day it was raining...) I particularly enjoy the red flower that breaks the green "monotony".

    Hi Malgo,
    The strong blue wall and the bright green window shutters are important parts of this picture but the inclusion of people really enhances the scene.

    A fine, warm golden interior shot. The chandelier takes center stage but it's the backdrop that is most impressive. Congratulations.

    A classic scene, well taken. I (re)visted the Acropolis this summer and actually quite liked the wide fence around it to keep the visitors at a certain distance.

    Brrr...I don't like the coldness of winters, but I must admit it can be beautiful for pictures. Here's an example. All the best to you and yours.

    A stunning shot. Heavy saturation & a great/original pov. The result is almost surrealistic beauty. The wood looks gigantic. Great work. Thanks for sharing & have a fine weekend.

    Hello Subhendu

    The man's position - in meditation or sport (or both) - is a great capture here. The figures and the bike in the bg play their role in the composition too. A striking shot. Thanks for sharing it & have a great weekend.

    A very playful shot, which only increases the beauty of the cathedral. The lantern is beautifully placed and the curve of the window is great too. The cloud/haze in the reflection adds even more mystery to the scene. A great result. Thanks for sharing & have a fien weekend.
