    Hallo Lars,
    Bij het zien van je foto's verwacht ik nu dat in NYC iedereen met een camera omhoog kijkend, rondloopt en voortdurend ronddraait om alle weerspiegelingen vast te leggen.
    De sterke vervormingen geven hier een prachtig surrealistisch beeld.
    Prettig weekend, Paul

    Hallo Lars,
    Op de weerspiegeling in de glazen gevel lijkt het alsof het gebouw aan de overzijde een camouflagepakje aangetrokken kreeg, meer bepaald een zebrapakje.
    Prachtig met het mooie weer en het weerspiegelde blauw van de lucht.
    Prettig weekend, Paul

    Hello Malgo,
    I know that the weather can play a significant role on a holiday, especially for taking pictures.
    But you're absolutely the first person I've ever heard who was disappointed in a visit of Ghent! It's a wonderful town, very lively with a lot of students, restaurants and cafes and that with a wealth of historical architecture and art in the center.
    I agree that the scaffolding and restoration works here obviously make it a less attractive sight. But there's so much to see and to do in Ghent.
    Missing 'The Adoration of the Mystic Lamb' is a matter of planning. It has also happened to me that on the moment or the day I wanted to visit a museum or a point of interest, it was closed. More than once to be honest. My mistakes! But that's not a reason to be disappointed in a city.
    Cheer up! Plan a new holiday. You're already such a long time back home.
    Best regards, Paul

    Hello Mariusz,
    I think you're very good in taking a picture all of a sudden and at the same time thinking at a good composition.
    Very beautiful with the clock tower at one end and the church at the other side. Also the spectators at the bottom left frame the view of the square well. In addition, you took the picture at the right moment when the lady in white with the flowers made the right pass. A detail that catches attention. If she had also smiled to you, it would have been perfect :)
    It looks like this couple hired a Swiss guard at the Vatican.
    A wonderful picture of a very lively Dubrovnik!
    Best regards, Paul

    Hello Mariusz,
    I completely understand the advantages of building replicas of far away places in film studios like Hollywood.
    However copying famous landmarks from all over the world and put them together like in Las Vegas just seems to me like living off the success of others ... Just my personal opinion.
    Here the statue of Walt Disney and his famous mouse, the Hollywood Sign and the buildings make me think to be in the US. However, one building seems not to fit in this image. What is the redbrown city gate with its small tower? What does this stand for?
    An excellent composed and sharp picture.
    Best regards, Paul

    Hello Pedro,
    So this city is located on a higher altitude than Mexico DF.
    From this exquisite elevated viewpoint you present us an attractive bird's eye view of Pachuca. On the picture we discover several beautiful older buildings and a remarkable clock tower.
    Excellent clarity and sharpness.

    Hello Luciano,
    Very nice how this woman is positioned in between the different lines of laundry.
    This lady clearly knows which washing powder enables the whitest linen.
    Beautiful view upwards and the V-sign and her smile add a lot of charm.

    Hello Gert,
    The tree looks like an enormous umbrella under which happens most of life on the quay.
    You present the boat from a good angle including the bustling activity in the port.
    The composition is excellent and the image contains the complete tree and boat.
    For some reason I also like the picture with the canal in the WS very much. I've never been to the south of India but that picture reminds me a bit of Sri Lanka.

    Hello Brenda,
    Not only a wonderful display of model trains but a beautiful and realistic looking miniature city. Very nicely finished in detail.
    According to your description also the part of the state lying north of NYC must look very attractive on this scale model.
    Nice that visitors can move in between.

    Hi Philippe
    Quite a strong back lighting shot to get the sun behind the edifice, i think you have certainly made the most with good highlights. This does convey a mood of the subject and it's a challenging capture nicely taken, Congrats.

    Hi Murat
    Wonderful sense of perspective as this is a piece of history and it seemed apt to use B&W with this less colourful subject. Like the metallic sheen and the creepy feeling it gives off !! Well composed and exposed of a strong subject matter.

    Wonderful how the vibrant red and green have lifted this facade tenfold with lovely mixture of timber architectural styles. It's aptly framed vertically with excellent detail, clarity and contrast. Well done.

    You have obviously concentrated on the droplets which are in focus with nice highlights and your shallow dof works well on the leaf. Lovely how they looked like miniature crystal balls with brilliant detail and clearly there is something very appealing about Rain Drops and you have captured that appeal perfectly.
    Excellent macro shot under challenging light condition. Congrats.

    Hallo John,
    Ik kan me niet meteen herinneren al een paardenkoets gezien te hebben in Gent. In Brugge vele natuurlijk. Hoe heb ik die van Gent steeds kunnen missen?
    Het oude postgebouw staat er prachtig op. Interessante architectuur en tot in de details mooi getoond.
    De kerstboom is een voorbode van hetgeen we hier de volgende weken vaak zullen te zien krijgen. Hier lijnt hij mooi de linkerzijde van het beeld af.
    Een mooie levendige sfeer op de verkeersvrije zone van de Korenmarkt.
    Vele groeten,
    Paul
