    Hello Nicolas,
    A magnificent composition with a good use of the dark lines of the fences and the blue reflections slightly distorted by the curves of the hillside. It's simple but graphically beautiful.

    Hello Takero,
    These fantastic monkeys look so human that I feel I am watching a small homeless child suffering from the cold. It is really touching to see its fur covered with snow and more snow steadily coming down. It's an excellent portrait.

    Hello Lars,
    The Swedish guard is blonder than the Spanish and doesn't wear a wig on top of his helmet. They both look very bored from standing like a statue for a long time. You could probably find nice reflections in the well polished helmet of both of them, but if you tried that they would possibly react.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Malgo,
    A nice combination of architecture and reflections. I think La Défense offers endless photo possibilities, so there will always be new attractive POVs. Yes, I see two persons who look like they are taking photos. Are you one of them? ;-)

    Hello Ryszard,
    "Simply a tree" is not as simple as that. This photo is a monument to a magnificent living thing that fell victim to a development of dubious necessity. It is also a composition of a minimalistic beauty.

    Hello Bülent,
    This fits one of your favourite themes very nicely: the interaction between art and onlookers, in this case being a commercial poster and a worker. I admire your quick reaction to this brilliant opportunity. I like both versions but B&W puts it in a very old category of observations of daily life in the streets. I really love the sharp triangle formed by the ladder and its shadow.

    Hello Paul,
    You chose a fine spot for this photo, where the trees form an elegant arch which you could use as an upper frame of the view of the sea, the distant hills and the small boats. It could have been Greece, or it could have been Thailand, or probably many other places in the world, but it happened to be Colombia. In any case a pleasant place for a short stay. The workshops show that many photo opportunities could be found.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Ourania,
    The calm blue sea with the small boat is nicely framed by the white wake caused by the catamaran and the white town at the foot of the hill. The photo captures very nicely the quiet excitement of Greek island hopping, meeting other boats and leaving one island just to arrive at another one in a relatively short time.

    Hello Claude,
    Your experiment was quite successful. I like the effect of the blurred figures walking by almost like ghosts without paying any attention to the homeless man. The warm light from inside and the strong red and yellow features increase the eye-catching effect.

    Hello Christiane,
    The sun creates a magic light and intense colours and it is perfectly placed between the trees. The sense flare contributes to the atmosphere of an early morning in winter.

    Hello May,
    This is a very attractive photo from a good POV. The steps form a fine lower frame to the view of the short street where the table and chairs and the man provide nice details. There is a cosy atmosphere partly created by the warm light of the lamps and partly by the perspective from above and the closeness between the houses. The table in the middle of the street shows that no disturbing traffic ever comes to this quiet place.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hallo John,
    Prachtige foto van deze witte huizen met hun (voornamelijk) oranje daken. De smalle straatjes nemen de bezoeker terug in de tijd. De dame in roze verlevendigt de foto en steekt mooi af tegen de achtergrond.

    Hello Beverley,
    I think I told you before, but I really love this early spring sunlight, I hope we don't have to wait for it for too long this year. Beautiful view of this row of boats at low tide. The mooring posts are really impressive! The difference between high and low tide must be incredible indeed! The sharpness and clarity of this photo are absolutely superb!

    A wonderful close-up photo of this little stream of water, which still finds its way through the snow. Perfect sharpness, every little detail of the wood is visible. The sunlight is also very appealing here. Excellent photo work!

    Hello György,
    This is really a great photo in your special style and it would be ridiculous if it doesn't receive more than a handful of comments. The lady in red is stepping out of the snow like a Venus rising from the sea, and there is a fine line of pastel coloured buildings giving good depth to the bending street full of pedestrians. Even the decorations hanging from the wire across the street are quite nice and the light is very well managed.
    Have a nice day,
    Gert

    A wonderful mix of greenish and yellowish tones in the grass and leaves surrounding this small creek. The overhanging branches add some nice horizontal lines to the vertical creek in the lower half of the photo.
