    Hello Stephen,
    I like how you filled this well-considered panoramic frame with the sharp and intriguing details of the windows, there's good sense of depth and the reflections add perspective in a surprising way. I also like the thick natural borders around the windows and the bright quality of the timeless monochrome. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hello Rob,
    a very intriguing and original presentation of the bridge through a symmetrical partial view that offers a close focus on its structure as well as a fine refernece to the cityscape. I like very much the layers that go far into the background, the play of light and the overall graphic impression of the scenery. Congratulations and thank you!

    Καλησπέρα Κωνσταντίνε,
    μια υπέροχη γειτονιά πάνω στο νερό, ένα αξιοζήλευτο μέρος για να κατοικεί κανείς. Μου αρέσει πολύ ο τρόπος που το ανέδειξες με τη σύνθεσή σου, δίνοντας τόσο χώρο στο λαμπερό νερό και προβάλλοντάς το χωριό με θαυμάσιες λεπτομέρειες και χρώματα πάνω στο γαλάζιο φόντο. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
    Να είσαι καλά, καλό σου βράδυ,
    Ουρανία

    Bonjour Cricri,
    an elegant and delightful presentation of the bridges and the artwork, the monochrome treatment is great and creates a romantic and timeless atmosphere. There's a very fine rhythm within your panoramic frame, the sense of depth and the definition of all the characteristic details are superb. Congratulations and thank you!

    Ciao Carlo,
    sono scioccata da quello che e' accaduto in Italia stanotte, spero che si potra' recuperare presto e che questa catastrofe sia l' ultima. E' bello vedere questo palazzo cosi brillante al sole, mi piace molto la definizione delle sue linee e dei suoi colori. Il cielo, il pavimento e le ombre fanno da ottimo contrasto e cornice. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buona serata,

    Hello dear Takero,
    the way you captured the movement is wonderful and you have placed the dancer so well within your frame. I like very much the graphism and the colours of this scene, the dancer is graceful and it's great that you captured her upward glace so well. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, take care,

    Hello dear Takero,
    your picture has superb composition and definition, it expresses the character and atmosphere of the festival in such a suggestive and fascinating way. It's amazing that fireworks, floats, silhouettes and black backdrop are all excellent in a scene that is so spectacular and so challenging at the same time. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello John,
    this picture is fascinating for the architecture, the colour and the texture of the canal water and the so well-placed boat with the people that look 3D. There's wonderful depth and fine moody colours, the reflections brighten the scene in a subtle way. The people seem to be posing as for a group portrait. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Ike,
    the artist may have been inspired by colours and music, their work must have been created fast and with passion, it looks very vibrant and attractive. You brought out the colours very effectively and the tight framing has added intensity to the black and white patterns that make me think of a song or a prayer. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonjour Nicou,
    this corner has charming old textures and details, the architecture is represented effectively by the partial view of the setting. I like how you focused on the well, preserving the context clear and well-illuminated too. It's great how the vegetation stands out so bright and sweet against the shady stone-walls. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Malgo,
    I like all three of your pictures, it's fascinating to see the same subject from so different points of view and in diverse contexts. Your series shows that you walked a lot around the tower, the views are comprehensive, detailed and interesting. I also like the mood and the colours. In the main post I particularly like how the people and the buildings are facing each other. Congratulations and thank you!

    Olá, Jorge!

    Essa é uma imagem mais normal da Índia, no sentido de ter coisas que se podem encontrar por aqui também, mas é um espetáculo da natureza! O sol se escondendo atrás das nuvens ficou muito bonito, e a iluminação bem interessante com os reflexos na água! Lindo trabalho!

    Hello Chris,
    a little while after you, I posted a picture titled "leaving Symi" and then I saw yours in the gallery:) The boat in your picture must be leaving the port for a short while, I like the movement and action it brings to the scene, you placed it perfectly. Your picture has splendid light and colours, Poros looks like a lovely and inviting place. Congratulations and thank you!

    This is delicious close up work - I love the way you've composed this keeping sharp in focus on the musician blowing his lungs out on the huge brass instrument. How wonderful to be serenaded while taking the shot, I like this a lot especially the stunning contrast of the glossy colour to finish off. Another great shot, Congrats and tfs

    This is just a marvellous minimalist beachscape, the way the golden light shimmers on the water extremely steals the show. Those tiny silhouetted figs adds as strong point of focus for the eye to settle and credit to your seamless exposure control. Indeed a coool shot, Congrats.

    Hard to miss the white castle quietly sitting up there counterpoint in colour by the foliage which carries the impact and contrast. A pleasant composition and exposed with excellent depth and detail. A simple intriguing catch, Congrats
