    Hello Ourania,
    Nice girls surrounded by nice colours that completely hide the fact that this is not the nicest part of Athens (if I remember it correctly). The (almost) silhouette of the salesman frames the view very suitably and creates an attractive balance to the strong light in the central part. I guess you saw the opportunity this place provided and just waited for the right moment. In such a busy place I guess you didn't have to wait many seconds.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Silvio,
    You were well awarded for looking for a good POV. The poppies and the high grass have given you a wonderful foreground. Even a beautiful medieval bell tower like this needs some complementary colours.
    Very well done.

    Hello Brenda,
    This is a great photo of a fabulous wall. The angry green baby is superb and very cleverly painted. Surely there is a strong 3D effect. It was very amusing to study the various "ads". I like the diabetic Coke and the chicken breasts and the "In God we must trust". Without the inclusion of the real people in the corner (they are real, aren't they?) it would have been difficult to grasp this picture and its dimensions. I really wish we had superb graffiti like this where I live.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Jean Claude,
    This is a very beautiful old tree coming into leaf for another year. The abundance of yellow in the FG and the clear blue sky is lovely. Even the small shelter and road signs add very well to the composition. Very sharp and well exposed - excellent image.
    Kind Regards, Ann

    Hello Brenda,
    Interesting how the dappled light has picked put some faded colour and made an interesting picture. the graffiti makes a focal point. The empty shops suggest that this is not a busy area. Very well done for showing a different view of NYC.

    Hello Nicolas,
    Once again a quite simple but very elegant and beautiful composition. There is a good balance between the two areas of green hill and dark blue sky, separated on an attractive diagonal. The birds filling the sky create life and atmosphere. Very well seen.

    Hello Leslie,
    This is a beautiful scenery and certainly one of the brightest photos of the day, even with relatively few colours. The yellow field is stunning and the green stems create a fine immediate foreground. The forest further back offers us a great variety of dark green tones and low hills. A painter would love to capture those nuances.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Dwaipayan,
    This photo is a refined palette of colours. A red person, green grass, blueish mountains and white and yellow prayer flags. The tree is graphically attractive and well placed a third from the side. This was very well observed and cleverly handled.

    Hello Mesut,
    Although there are no people included this time, the chair and the table serve more or less the same purpose of adding daily life to the wall painting. It's a pity that there are such big cracks in the wall, but in a way those cracks create a separate pattern, along with the shadows, that give the wall another kind of life.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    A lovely little creature, and what a joy it must have been to get close enough to capture a photo like this. It is so well positioned, and the colours and light are so good that it is also a joy to watch it.

    After a long trek and arriving at the summit, it's time to have a break and look at the amazing mountain panorama while smoking a cigarette.

    Hello Les,
    What a splendid field. When we flew into Gatwick last week there was a patchwork of yellow and green fields. The sky has interesting darker shades and form that balances the composition. Excellent colour saturation and sharpness.

    I like the juxtaposition of the graffiti man and the real man walking up the steps. Good colours to brighten the brickwork. Very well seen and taken.
