    Hello Stephen,
    this is an elegant, mysterious and very agreeable patio, the palazzo must be very special, maybe had an important role in the city's history and is a point of reference today as well. It is well preserved but also has the air of a building that is getting old gracefully. I like how you make the viewer feel surrounded by the walls, colours and architectural details. I like the perspective, the lighting and the peaceful atmosphere. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely evening,

    Hello dear Takero,
    this is a beautiful picture, so unpretentious, eloquent and touching. I like very much how your tight composition accentuated the closeness of mother and son, the love, trust and understanding. Apart from their expressions, I love the role of the hands too. The colours are very lovely and there's a fine, intimate atmosphere with so soft shadows. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely day,

    Bonjour Nicou,
    another marvel brought to the beautiful Swiss countryside with the change of seasons. The poppies (which have such a lovely name in French) look bright and delightful, they make such a warm and cheerful impact in the scenery of vast fields and imposing mountains. Your picture has great depth and perspective, agreeable clarity and atmosphere. Congratulations and thank you!

    Ciao Silvio,
    Castelluccio sembra sempre maestoso, intrigante ed invitante nelle tue foto. Questa presentazione da vicino e' interessantissima, i dettagli ed i colori sugli edifici sono superbi ed e' bello che hai incluso anche il sentiero per arrivarci. L' atmospfera e' particolare ed affascinante, la montagna e le nuvole fanno uno sfondo suggestivo e meraviglioso. Complimenti e grazie!

    Hello Jean,
    the town is picturesque and must be interesting to explore in any kind of weather but it looks really splendid on a sunny day of spring. I like that this broad, well balanced presentation includes a colourful daily life scene. Clarity is great and we pass from several eye-catching focal points on the way to the background. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello John,
    I like very much the simple, smooth and graphic rendering of this scene. The path marked by black poles, the blue tent and the long cargo ship stand out remarkably and make up a very intriguing setting. I love the smooth colours, the striking role of the perspective and the shadows. You used the light very aptly for an artistic and timeless image. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hola Angel,
    this is a marvellous picture, you managed to capture all its details and textures with great precision and get rewarding colours and attractive contrasts as well. I like how you adjusted the vertical frame to the layout of the scenery and the reflections, It looks like a very delightful place to walk through and explore with a camera. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Eleu,
    I like the vastness of this landscape, the sense of scale is intriguing and it's fun to follow the fine textures all the way to the background. There's great definition on the soft, contrasting colours, the passing clouds complete the scene delightfully. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Ike,
    a very pleasant scene, showing one of the many ways one can enjoy this lovely place. I like the mild dynamism of your composition and the sense of movement. The four rowers stand out for their bright colours and differences but they make a coordinated team, enjoyable to watch. Clarity is great and you did a fine job with light and contrast management too. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Neyvan,
    this is a very interesting view, with a great arrangement of levels and perspectives, exquisite details and natural, atmospheric colours. I like very much the way we are guided through and around this fine setting, it feels solemn and suggestive but also intimate. The moody colours and the play of light and shadow make this corner of the broad cityscape mysterious and enchanting. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Gert,
    this is a very lovely coast, especially beautiful when it's sunny. I've only seen it from an aeroplane window and know it from photos but the wonderful quality of the light is always there. I like your composition and its progressive structure towards the background. The people add colour and vividness, they are included in a neat way and they seem to appreciate the view and the sunshine. You managed the special light superbly, the colours are very pleasing. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely evening (probably in Poland by now),

    Hi Cristina,
    Very very nice photo, almost surreal with its abstract layout and high contrast. I have to wonder what th people are looking at, especially the man as he looks quite shock at something. Love the choice of black white and the whole layout. Really cool, thanks for sharing.

    What a view and a great capture of the place, it is amazing the places humans end up making settlements. I really like the composition tool balanced between the mountains and the sat distance beyond. Vey nicely done.

    Hi Dhanraj.
    This looks a very magnificent building, built to impress and it impressed well. The large dome and tall windows and arcades outside give it the feeling of a major mosque. Nice angle to shoot too allowing a view of the whole size of the building.

    Hi May,
    Great photo of this place for posterity, and your note explains well what we are seeing. The choice to go black and white is really well considered as it gives an artistic and historic feel to the photo. The fact that the man in the shot is slightly blurred as he moves add to that too. Great shot, thanks for sharing.

    Bonjour Cricri,
    I'd like to congratulate and thank you again for your wonderful collection of photos posted on TE in the course of 10 years, also for the things I've learned through your photography and for your friendly encouragement. Despite the recent problems, I hope your dedicated presence on TE will not diminish at all, for me uploading time varies.
    The sunset in your picture looks majestic, the light has created a fascinating spectacle, which you've captured skillfully. A unique scene, with wonderful depth, textures, colours and atmosphere. Once again, congratulations and thank you!

    Hi Ceaig,
    The shapes of the stairs are brilliant, what a cool way to put a strong lead into the picture. As I look up at all the buildings at the top, I notice that many of them look like faces. This is a new view of a ghat to me, the early morning setting in these busy places. It'd a way I never envisemged a place like this. Though I must say I only know of them at through this website. Very nice moment to shoot. Hope all is well!

    Hi Mesut.
    The shapes of the buildings in stone give a tantalising glimpse of what once was, and the soft color tone works beautifully with rhe bright light. This is a very moody and somber image, really nicely done.

    Hi Yang,
    Stunning photo, the colors are amazing and the combination of the rock formation and your placement of the sun is superb. I would have used to think that people did not work in shots, but this website has taught me otherwise, exactly like this does. The body language of the two people makes them look almost like aliens exploring a new place for the first time. Really nice photo thanks for sharing.
