    Hello Chris,
    I like very much how you captured this interesting geological phenomenon, the clarity of your picture is superb and the textures are so interesting. The contrasts in textures and colours are very effective, I also like the depth and the interest provided in the background. It's amazing that horizon has vanished and the blue tones that lead to it shift so smoothly. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a good night,
    Ourania

    PS I'm sure you'll love Crete, there are a million things to see and experience there!

    Hello Daniel,
    the window is very lovely and your composition is so elegant. I like how you placed it and surrounded it with more shapes and contrasting tones, which were created by the play of light and shadow. The blue tones are so attractive, I like how the window stands out and glows, even the part that's in the shade. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Bonjour Jean,
    a very fine bookmark format, the scene is romantic and mesmerizing and I like very much the clarity of the fiery sphere and the textures, the glowing warm colours and the way you followed the trail of light across the seascape. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Malgo,
    the presentation of this exceptional building through your photos and note is captivating. Everything about it is unusual and I appreciate your approach and the information you provided very much. Your main post has some very attractive colours but neither the eye-catching colours in the foreground nor the numerous poles manage to take our attention away from the Library. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonsoir Nicou,
    I like very much this scene and the suggestive atmosphere that wraps the viewer. The blue/grey tones are superb and they represent different elements as well as distance. The warm light has revealed the distant peaks in a playful and fascinating way. Your composition is great and the scene it shows extraordinary. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Lars,
    this is a lovely view, the scenery is so elegant and has an almost fairytale-like quality, I'm certainly delighted to see it again. The warm evening light has rendered the scene particularly graceful, the colours are natural and enchanting at the same time. I like how the perspective of the bank and the neighbourhood crosses the frame between lovely blue tones. Congratulations and thank you!

    Ciao Carlo,
    questa vista e' ancora piu' intima e misteriosa dalla tua foto precedente di questo posto straordinario. Mi piace molto come hai giocato con le prospettive e le forme, come il procedimento dello spettatore per le strade della citta' che fu e' irresistibile. Uno scenario senza tempo, le tonalita' tenue ed armoniose fanno un' atmosfera molto particolare. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buona serata,

    Ciao Silvio,
    magnifica presentazione del centro della citta' con un' interessante addizione di vita quotidiana. Hai creato ottima profondita' nel quadro verticale e la chiarezza e' eccellente malgrado la luce tenua della giornata nuvolosa. La tua composizione e' tanto elegante quanto gratificante, mi piace molto la paletta armoniosa ed il riflesso in primo piano. Complimenti e grazie!

    Hello Rob,
    it's great that you approached this fascinating subject in three different ways in this series (I guess that you have even more different compositions though). My favourite is the one you chose as a main post, the additional perspective and colour along the right border introduce wonderful contrast. The abstract reflections and the contrasting colours create a vibrant and fascinating effect. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Ike,
    the impression that we got from the closer and narrower views that you had presented so far has been confirmed and become really fascinating from this high point of view. You framed this composition very carefully and there's a superb layout of interest across the cityscape. I like how you managed the strong light and the natural colours and contrasts it produced. Clarity is excellent as well. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Lucas,
    this is a great composition, your frame is divided in three different sections which you have put together in a dynamic and delightful way. There's great interest in all sections, the scene is vibrant and each part is very clear and displays a diverse palette of colours. The perspective of the railway and the train is set superbly, I like that the train hasn't been cut at all. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello dear Lisa,
    this scene is very attractive and really fascinating for your composition and the gorgeous colours you achieved as well as for the evocative elements it represents. I like how the ancient rock rises within the vertical frame and how it's tpped by the moon. The light is superb, it looks as if this is a magical rock and the glow comes from its inside. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Jean,
    this is a fine group portrait and your note enhances its interest with useful information. I think they should have selected a place with a smoother background, as they intended to be photographed, but at least the colour of the door is not distracting. You captured excellent details, their poses are graceful and their costumes amazing. Their smiles and the vibrant colours create a pleasant atmosphere. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonsoir Roland,
    I like the balance and dynamism of your composition, the gentleman is very well placed, his step springing from the corner and a well set perspective ahead of him. He is stepping into an interesting setting, although I'm not sure weather he thinks so too. I like the clarity and naturalness of the scene as well as the well-controlled intensity of the colours. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Paul,
    the words "beautiful" and "poetic" come first to my mind upon viewing your picture. It might be an ordinary daily life scene in this awesome landscape but I consider this sight very rare and enchanting. You were lucky to be there, see this view and live the atmosphere in person, your picture is great for me and I appreciate that you shared this moment with us. There's a very fine balance in your composition and the colours are delicious. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonjour Serge,
    a lovely panorama, with excellent details and delightful natural colours. It's so enjoyable to explore the different fruits and vegetables, evoking aromas, tastes and recipes:) I like the extended and comprehensive view as well as the complementary view of the market in the background. You managed the light very effectively to get a wealth of details and great depth. Congratulations and thank you!
