    Hello dear Takero,
    a fascinating blue hour photo, the perspectives are irresistible and the play of blue, golden and dark tones is so rich and delightful. I like very much how the scarce human presence adds stories and arrests our glance. The play of light and shadow all over the installation is lovely, it gives a vibrant quality to this original scene. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Hello Lars,
    I enjoy this presentation of the iconic Chateau Frontenac very much, it looks so sharp and majestic in the background of your composition, the sky offers great contrast and suggestive dynamism. I also like the perspective and the deep foreground, the people fill the area up to the Chateau with movement and colours, there are some interesting scenes among them too. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonsoir Jean,
    this luminous blue colour is absolutely mesmerizing and you have done a great job in capturing its brightness and texture, the contrast you created around it is so effective. I also like the fine details of the coast and the boats, the people must be enjoying a memorable day of leisure in this sea. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Rob,
    the well-considered perspective, the tight crop and the inclusion of the neighbouring buildings have created a rhythmical and interesting play of shapes and patterns. The excellent sharpness as well as the effective rendering of reflections and shadows enhance the elegance of the scene and the impression of balance you created. The soft blue sky sets off the architectural theme in a very pleasing way. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Krzysztof,
    I like how you adjusted the panoramic frame to the curve of the avenue next to the promenade, your picture has superb clarity and very attractive colours. The architecture, the cars, the bright sunshine and the colours tell us a lot about this place and the style of daily life in it. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Stephen,
    the red elements stand out in an irresistible way, they are so bright and vivid and they surely catch everyone's attention. I like the perspective you chose to place them in your frame, they dominate the scene and enhance its dynamism, you balanced them effectively. The details around them are clear and graphic but in a much more subdued way. The people add another kind of liveliness. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Gert.
    a fascinating exotic scenery, it also looks quite mysterious until we read your note. I like the impression of an endless rock in the vertical composition, the vegetation provides a delightful natural frame and the texture of the rock is superb. The interval created by the path and balcony is really intriguing, the people add scale and movement and make me wish I could share their perspective too. The workshop pictures are so different, I like the reference they offer and the way they expand our first impression of this place. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonjour Serge,
    an excellent composition, a well-cropped partial view that shows us the clothes and the procedure of tightening the corset so effectively. I like very much the details and the colours as well as the tilt that adds a dynamism so suitable for the scene. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Benny,
    I recently had an idea for a composition like this, it concerned a much simpler old motorbike and looks too simple and dull compared to this work of art cum self-portrait you are presenting in this picture. I like very much the distribution of interest and the excellent crop, the fine details and textures as well as the cascading highlights. The smoky brown tones create a mysterious atmosphere. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hello Lucas,
    I like how you froze this daily life scene, how the canoe and the children frame the blue house while they are staring back so intently. The houses seem to have a glance too, the blue one dominates the scene and the smaller ones complete the description of this neighbourhood. The reflections add texture and vibrancy. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Sven,
    this site looks mysterious and fascinating to me, you are introducing it to us through a bold and original composition that takes us deep into the scenery and offers intriguing reference with the sea and the tiny person sitting on the bench. I like very much how you split the perspective through the placement of the nearest tree. Colours and atmosphere are very delightful. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Gy,
    it's unusual in this genre of photos for the sunflowers to be oriented to the side, I like the originality that strikes at first glance and makes us look at the whole picture more carefully. We are led to follow the perspective to the distant end of the field and dwel on the mysterious cityscape beyond it. I like the compact look of the field and the intense and slightly dark quality of the colours. Congratulations and thank you!

    this view is great, the colours are brilliant and there's such a strong distinction between them. I also like the sense of balance and depth, the well-defined, natural details and the sense of tranquility and relaxation despite the strong light and eye-catching colours. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Chris,
    I like this photo very much, it shows the boat, the sky and the setting in a superb way, with amazing precision and a mesmerizing atmosphere. I'm very imprssed by the definition of details and colours in every area of your composition, the contrast between natural and artificial light and colours is excellent. The reflections spreading in the foreground create a sense of drama. Congratulations and thank you!

    Ciao Carlo,
    ho seguito le cronache su Corriere della Sera e visto molte immagini che hanno documentato in modo preciso e doloroso quello che soffrono le personne che sono colpite ma anche quelli che stanno aiutando con tutte le loro forze. La tua immagine e' suggestiva e trasmette il sentimento dell' interruzione discrettamente ed effettivamente. Spero che vita e storia andranno avanti anche dopo questo colpo incredibile. Complimenti per questo ommaggio sensibile, grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buona serata,

    Ciao Silvio,
    ogni ora che passa tristezza e disperazione aumentano, spero che presto saranno sostituite da coraggio e speranza. Ho visto le due foto di avanti e dopo per quel che riguarda la Cattedrale ieri. La tua foto e' uno splendido ricordo, forse la Cattedrale potra' essere ricostruita un giorno, come molti edifici del dopoquerra in diversi paesi. Complimenti per il tuo ottimo documentario, grazie!
