    Hello Ike,
    Great view with extraordinary clarity of the skyline of the city. It is cleverly composed with a lovely green area in the foreground. Great photo work!

    Hello Karolina,
    You chose a good angle of shooting, slightly from the side of the building. I like the cold winter mood in combination with the pleasant light and the warm colours of the classical architecture.

    Hello Daniel,
    This is like a painting where you have used the camera as a brush. The colours have very fine mild tones and the light seeping through the branches is carefully managed. The trees and bushes have a remarkable softness and are very nicely reflected among the floating leaves. This is a place which may not have looked anything special at all for many people passing by that morning, but you realized the beauty in this simple corner of nature.
    Best regards,

    Hello Serge,
    I like this composition of well matching colours and fine lines. This should be a beautiful spot for a painter. I like the straight line of the beach and the white surf, which then makes a curve by the hill, on which the road makes another fine curve like an S. With colours and natural features like these I don't mind that the beach is empty.
    Kind regards,

    A superb view towards the village, castle, towers seen in the sunny haze by the mountainside. The bridge is a fine element in the bright foreground.

    Hello Lars,
    The cathedral is certainly impressive and attractive, but personally I am more amused by the spider. Somehow these two cultural expressions complement each other nicely, however different they may be, The two flags also contiibute to the balance of the composition, as well as adding colour.

    Hello Luis,
    It's a beautiful cloister with very attractive details of Gothic architecture. The palms and trees in the courtyard create a good contrast to the building and also provide a nice shady foreground. It's a very well exposed photo with wonderful sharpness.

    Hello Krzysztof,
    Another excellent photo of this fantasy castle. Even if the King who built it was mad you don't have to be crazy to enjoy a view like this. The castle itself and its location is fantastic and from this POV you also include a large area of the beautiful surrounding countryside. It is a perfect composition with perfect colours.

    Hello Pavle,
    It's an attractive street stall with lots of appetizing food for sale. Everything is neatly displayed and there are lots of fine colours, even the plastic bags. It's a very nice and neatly cropped photo which I really enjoy watching.

    Hello Ike,
    This is a neat composition in three sections. The city skyline is quite impressive and I think people living high up in those skyscrapers will appreciate having so much nature, or at least free space, so close to their homes. It's an excellent photo with wonderful colours and contrasts.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Ana,
    All of these photos have been very carefully taken, amusing and colourful. These two persons are posing well and I like that the red one is partly hiding behind the trees. That gives the photo a good balance and great contrasts of colours, as well as creating some kind of suspense.

    Hello Ghislaine,
    This was a very timely captured moment, also in perfect surroundings. The reflexion of the setting sun creates something like a halo around the kissing couple. The clouds have a tone of silver and the leaves floating in the lower part look like nuggets of gold.The pier divides the composition perfectly. Very well done.

    A nice Valentine's photo, just as romantic as any couple at sunset and certainly more original. The green and yellow with something scribbled on it caught my attention already as a thumbnail.

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    I like your hip shots very much, as I have said before several times. I don't have your kind of equipment, but for me my very light and simple camera helps me to act in a similar way. I try to mingle in the crowds, or walk at a slight distance without being noticed by anyone, then I take the camera from my pocket and snap a few shots before (usually) anyone realizes what is going on.
    With this photo you managed a very well farmed composition with the colorful fruits and the two hands meeting perfectly placed in the centre.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    The boats are quite attractive, but the cityscape is a lot nicer and the dark clouds are perhaps the most attractive part of this photo. It's in every way a fine composition with a wonderful light.

    Hello Klaudio,
    This is a very beautiful photo with fantastic colours and a perfect atmosphere. The most obvious focal-point is of course the couple on the pier, but the ducks swimming between the blue and orange reflections are just as important to me. The lamp-post and the tree balance the two couples well. And of course this is a photo that suits any day of the year.
    Kind regards,
