    Hello Burak,
    an amazing sight, it looks so powerful and dynamic, the presence of a lot of people so close to the geyser is surprising. They seem to be fascinated, no one is trying to move away. I like very much the depth and clarity of this scene, the colours are agreeable and they react to the light in a natural way. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a grood night,

    Hello Alexandre,
    how beautiful and inviting the beach and the seascape are, you captured all the magnificent qualities of the scenery effectively, exalted the colours and the contrasts as a most important and distinctive characteristic of the scene and chose a perspective that draws us in in an irresistible way. The people we see in the scene must feel mesmerized, the cloudscape is amazing and introduces a sense of drama. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hello Jean,
    an intriguing idea, a surprising and attractive result. I like how you are presenting this owl, as if your picture was a portrait. The bird looked real in the thumbnail and in the large image it seems to have a character that could interact with the viewer. I like the sweet colours of the natural setting and the stark contrast between natural and metallic textures. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a good night,

    Hello Hans,
    an interesting, dynamic composition, all the horizontal lines of the scenery converge towards a significant element in the background whilst we can turn to the right and have a glimpse of the flat surrounding landscape. I like the different tonalities of a moody palette, the left bank has an eye-catching colour and the right side displays interesting graphics. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Stephen,
    this view makes me think of a mosaic, you managed to include a great part of the building, the viewer gets immediately mesmerized by both its character and your composition. The effects of the lines, the patterns, the lights and the details, distributed almost randomly around the frame, are fascinating indeed. There's a sense of movement that challenges our glance. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hello Engin,
    I like the dynamic, downward point of view and the way you arranged this intriguing scene in a vertical frame. There's dynamism even thogh the action is slow at the moment, the three people lead us to focus on the same spot as them but there's more to observe in the scene. You managed the light effectively and I like how the colours stand out against the grey backdrop. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonjour Serge,

    Hello dear Mesut,
    a very intriguing glimpse into the past, the vividness of the scene and the eye-contact are fascinating. I like the interaction between the viewer and the family, the way they stick together, the attitude of the children towards the lens and the grandfather's subtle smile. There's a lot to learn from this spontaneous group portrait and its context too. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Craig,
    a superb composition that sets off the abstract character of the architecture and enhances the impact of the imitation of water. I like very much the way you tilted and cropped this view, the patterns are fascinating and so is spotting the rialings and realizing the dimensions of this scenery. I also like how you used the mildness of the light and the palette of greys to evoke the image of water even more effectively. The perspective in the workshop is awesome. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Ciao Carlo,
    la curva del paesaggio, la vegetazione tipica ed i colori ricchi e vivaci fanno un gran spettacolo e dano tanto piacere agli occhi. Mi piace molto la tua composizione con una varieta' di esemplari al primo piano ed una magnifica vistra fino al orrizonte. Le nuvole aggiungono dinamismo ed interesse, la luce e' piena di energia. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buona serata,

    Hi Jean
    That is really cool! This wise old owl definitely has a car theme, I can see hub caps and u think pieces of bumper too. What a brilliant result to make this astonishingly life like owl from such materials. Great framing and superb light. Very interesting post, thanks!

    Hi Neyvan
    Something about rail lines in a view like this seems very right and the curving line you have here leads the eye gently into the scene and off up into the jagged mountains. Really nice combination of white and blue

    The perceived distance in altitude from down below on the lemon line to the tip of that modern tower is actually quite dizzying! I don't have great balance at the best of times and this photo has a wonderful effect on that. I love your title too
