    Hello Danos,
    The view of the pool and the sea is fantastic and the colours are just as enchanting. You gave the composition a perfect foreground with the stones and the two small candles, that would probably be lit a short while later.

    Hello Daniel,
    This is really a remarkable city, from this POV and most others. My memories from 31 tears ago are getting vague, so maybe I should return. With a view like this it is tempting. The colours are superb.

    Hello Silvio,
    The wonderful flowers covering two thirds of the photo gives us a perfect view towards the green hill with the village on top. You found a deep and beautiful foreground for this composition with its perfect light and colours.

    Hello Daniel,
    This is really a strange sight in a mysterious landscape of hot fumes. The greenhouse in the wilderness looks very cosy and inviting as darkness is falling. It's a very well exposed photo with a good rendering of the yellow and green tones.

    Hello Ray,
    It's a fascinating landscape and I suppose that very steep rock would be a challenge to a lot of amateur mountaineers. Personally I am quite satisfied with just watching this photo. You found a fine POV and the photo has great colors.

    Hello Craig,
    I could imagine worse things than being followed by that girl ;-). The best thing for you to do was obviously to take this photo, especially along with her colorful friends. They are very nicely placed in the niche of the building. It frames the photo perfectly and adds a glimpse of the local architecture. A very nice photo that I would have liked to take.

    Hello Malgo,
    A nice long perspective of fine vaults and pillars, I also like the play of light and shades on the floor. Pleasant colours too, but what about the droppings? :-)

    Hello Chris,
    I don't know if ghosts could be said to animate a scene, but these ones really do. It's a nice bridge, and the photo has a fine depth, but the composition would have been fairly dead without the red ghosts.

    Hello Chris,
    A remarkable work of street art, probably too good to be regarded as graffiti in the usual sense of that word. I would guess this was officially sanctioned, but that doesn't make it less attractive. In a way I actually think the workshop is more interesting because it shows us the entire building and its surroundings, giving us a better idea of what this is.

    Hello Christian,
    This is a lovely composition with an ideal combination of beautiful ancient architecture and human presence. The two persons enjoying the sun are perfectly placed in the foreground, bringing life and colours to the photo without disturbing the view of the gates to the port. The photo is perfectly exposed and well balanced.

    Hello Murat,
    This is a lovely view of the lake and the city skyline. The evening colors and the reflections are beautiful and the swans make the view even nicer. Maybe they are really the stars of the photo.

    Hello Silvio,
    The way you have handled the strong light is impressive. Every area is perfectly exposed. The fine light, along with the excellent sharpness, has captured the rough texture of the stones very well. It is also a nice view of old walls at different angles and you have cropped the photo very well.

    Hello Ourania,
    Today all eyes are turned at Greece, but I will start with this photo. It's a nice variation on your last one with an interesting upside down twist. I get the impression that the man and his shadow are both leaning backwards and that only their common feet save them from falling down. The diagonal lines to the left add another ingredient to the composition.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Paul,
    This is a very strange scenery. It reminds me of the Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland, but there the rocks are standing up, not lying down. The red structure (whose name I have now forgotten) is placed on the beach with the usual Japanese sense of refinement. The workshops give us a good complementary idea of this little island.
