    Hello Aleksandar,
    This is a beautiful example of traditional German architecture. I've been looking at all the details, and there are so many nice ones. I like the man holding a glass near the top, the wine glasses, and the writing "in vino veritas". The style is very charming, and I like that a couple of people are standing in front, too.

    Hello Luis,
    This giant mural really does stand out. The colors are so vibrant, and it's so long! The bench is also very artistic, and I like how you included two people sitting at the far end. The WS photo is very different than this one. It seems that no clothes were necessary - even to do a handstand!

    Hello Daniel,

    This is a most beautiful garden. Green can be just as attractive as borders of colourful flowers. Green is so very natural.
    I love how the impressive trees have been trimmed to make huge tunnels or arches.
    A garden on an impressive scale!

    My warm regards,
    Bev 😀

    Hello dear Constantino,

    There are lots of yellow flowers in spring. They always seem to cheerful, happy that winter is over! And they make us feel happy, too!

    I like your photograph, how the flowers fill the f/g with their colourful details, making a lovely contrast with the rippling, moving sea. The sky was also in your favour, its blue space being decked with spreading, interesting clouds.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Malgo,

    It took me a moment to find the first '2'!

    The sun is wonderful for bringing people outside and I always maintain that people are happier, more social in the spring sunshine! I wonder if the man at the right is waiting for a person to make another 2!
    It's a fun shot, in an interesting setting.

    My warm regards,

    Hello Sasha,

    This is a very popular theme for photographers, a long curvy road which is impossible to resist. I like how well you have composed it, with the disappearing point in a strong place.
    I would have liked a strong focal point but, I understand that you are creating a sense of mystery.

    My warm regards,

    Ciao caro Silvio,

    This was a perfect time to photograph the buildings.
    The surrounding hillside is in deep shadow, whilst the buildings are white and tinged with sunlight, making them stand out like celebrities in a spotlight.
    You have placed them centrally which, in my opinion, is right for this group of buildings.
    You know, they remind me of a lovely wedding cake!

    Have a good w/e,
    Bev :-)

    Hello JC,

    I have only really seen Luxembourg City so this is quite an eye-opener for me. It does, in fact, look very English. There are quite a few regions where I have seen similar scenery.
    You have used the wooden walkway to great effect, guiding from a corner, across the frame to a well positioned focal hut.
    The trees help frame the scene whilst the reeds relate important information about the habitat.
    Lovely sharpness and colours.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Craig,

    I perfectly understood why you had chosen this title, it does look a bit lunar and has a likeness to a satellite dish.
    I like how you have chosen the curved roadway as the separation line. where the car parking lines radiate like the lines on the roof.
    The drone shot reveals a very modern conglomeration of shapes, interconnected and leading back to the main, circular hub.

    Have a good w/e,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Ike,

    I wonder if everyone understands how locks work.
    They were a great invention to allow boats to go 'uphill' and 'downhill'.
    I always loved to watch narrow boats negotiate the locks on the canal near our home.

    You have tried to include as much of the autumnal colours as possible because the sky was doing you no favours. Maybe a lower viewpoint might have removed the sky completely. The trouble is, when you bend low on a cool day, it isn't always easy to get up again!!
    I like how you have used the 'Royal Scot', with all its red life rings, to anchor the f/g and lead us towards the other boats and the locks.

    I wonder if the people in the houses ever spend time chatting to the skippers and assisting with the locks. It could be an interesting, social way to pass the day.

    Have a great w/e,
    Bev :-)

    Bonjour Nicolas,

    The combination of silhouetted land and sunlit skies can be an artistic pairing.
    This is a fine thirds composition where the land provides the setting and the sky the drama. The fierce light from the sun has turned the sky into a furnace!
    Well observed and well photographed.

    A very well considered composition shows sharp details of raft and butterfly with no other distractions. I feel I could almost touch the wooden poles they are co texturally sharp!

    Hello John,

    This looks like a hotel with much character and one where the owners take great care to make the outside space green and comfortable.
    There is a blanket of greenery making the courtyard appear like a garden, further emphasised by the pots of bright red geraniums.
    Your well considered composition takes every advantage to show the comfort of this tastefully renovated hotel.

    My warm regards,

    This is a fine action shot, those ducks have not made it easy for you.
    I like how they are remaining in a line, each showing a different wing position as they progress across the water.

    I like "old school" style, and this gentleman would certainly fit in a century ago. I like the way he is looking at your camera, and the rack of old post cards behind him. I don't mind the tight crop. :-)

    This is like a painting done by Mother Nature. I like how the rays of sun are trying to shine through the delicate clouds. The color in the sky is also beautiful. This moment probably passed quickly, but you were lucky enough to capture it.

    I love the red color and details of this facade. This building certainly stands out among the others. I,wish we had a few more splashes of bright, architectural color here in NYC, but for now I'll just enjoy your photo. :-)

    Hello Takero,
    The pose of this Gaiko is so delicate. I like the way her hand is positioned, and the way she is looking at the small wind wheel. Once again, the colors are beautiful, and you handled the depth and focus perfectly.
