    Hello Malgo,
    This looks like a strange but interesting place although we don't really see any of the local architecture. The dense vegetation surrounded by desert reminds me of the small oasis towns in Algeria, although everything else is probably very different. The light and colours are excellent and the people in the foreground, as well as the pillars and the cacti give the view fine depth.
    It's interesting what you write about altitude sickness. I felt awful when traveling to Ladakh and passing 4000 metres, but the next year I was perfectly all right when passing 5 200 metres on the way to Tibet. I thought it was just because I was better prepared, and had eaten better, but maybe I had acquired some kind of immunity against altitude sickness. I never thought of that ;-)
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Eleu,
    A remarkably well taken photo where the birds are seen as in a book where the movements of their wings are pedagogically shown. The sharpness and exposure are perfect and the you could not have found a better background.

    A fine blue hour photo with beautiful golden light under the vaults. It's a very well exposed photo of this elegant building.

    Hello Roland,
    This is a beautiful view and a masterly composed photo. There is a very good balance between the winding road, the tree, the vines and the distant village. The light and colours were very good on this beautiful day of early spring.

    A very nice photo from a good angle. I like the strong local atmosphere, slightly chaotic and totally natural.

    This is an attractive composition based on the diagonal. I like the colours and the big boulders on land and in the water.

    Hello Daniel,
    The river is the same as in many other photos but the view is different. It shows us an interesting mix of well restored houses and some buildings hopefully awaiting restorations. The sun shines very nicely on the brick roofs.

    Hello Mesut,
    It's a magnificent theatre seen from a very good and informative POV. The colours are wonderful. I have seen Aspendos but I missed this one.

    Hello Maciej,
    You captured the weak light very well. I think this must have been early morning, There is a lot of empty space in front of the beautiful buildings but you used the nearest water pump very well to anchor the composition at the bottom. The people to the right also partly fill the foreground.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Gerrit,
    This is a very nice portrait with good light and sharpness. I like the dark background and the fragments of words on the wall. The words don't make much sense but they are graphically nice details.

    Hello Murat,
    Welcome back. It's nice to see your Turkish notes with all proper letters again.
    This is a fine portrait of a kind. I can't help feeling that the giraffe is watching you with some kind of interest and curiosity. It's a beautifully clear and sharp photo with perfect light and colors.

    Hello Carlo,
    The nearest houses are fairly ordinary but they form a fine view along with the trees and hills and blue sky. The fantastic colours and clarity also make the photo highly enjoyable.

    Hello Ana,
    I find all these graffiti photos very fascinating. This one gets a fine company from the stickers, the padlock and the wooden details. All these details work very well together. This is your composition just as much as C215's. I am looking forward to more of this kind.

    Hello Craig,
    This is a superb photo and the woman has picked up the colors of the ground and wall perfectly. She is very well placed in the doorway with the dark background. She is clearly looking somewhere high above you, but like you say she may possibly not have seen much at all. My instincts tell me you didn't actually use the tripod for this shot. Am I right or am I right? ;-)
    Best wishes,
    Gert
