    Hello Jean,
    I can't judge if this is a "straight" photo or you tilted it deliberately, but in any case this diagonal of flowers is highly impressive. I can understand that 34,502 persons found it worthwhile to have a lok at it.

    Hello Recep,
    This is a beautiful photo. I think you have saturated the orange tone of the reeds, but you have done it well and created art. The contrast with the blue surroundings is amazing.

    Hello Silvio,
    I never stop to wonder how many such beautiful and picturesque villages on mountains that are found in your part of Italy. This is another gem, captured under favorable light conditions in a very neat composition.

    Hello Danos,
    In spite of the dull and rainy weather the colours of this photo are admirably clear and distinct. The hotel is spectacularly adorned and the square in front of it is very nicely arranged. As always a day in red cheers up any photo, so this one entered inside the frame just at the right moment.

    Hello Sergio,
    It's a wonderfully clear and sharp photo. I like the contrasts of blue and beige, including the curtains, and you balanced the photo very nicely. The light is perfectly managed too.

    Hello Neyvan,
    I suspect this building doesn't look so attractive from a distance, but from this low angle you took a very good photo where the windows and balconies have created a fine graphic pattern. The yellow plants on one of the balconies break the monotonous view in a refreshing way.

    Hello Pavle,
    With so much fresh snow and warmer days forecast you can expect a lot of slush in the streets very soon. That is the worst part of winter. For now this thick cover of snow looks good and inviting. You show it in four neatly arranged photos where two of the views are seen through the nice screen of brown leaves.

    Hello Gy÷rgy,
    This looks like a decisive moment, when the well dressed man decided to get himself a high carb shock. The white dressed salesman with his white basket is a strong eye-catcher and you captured the moment well when the customer has his money ready. It's a sharp and clear glimpse from the crowded street. The houses, people and wires give the photo nice depth.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Benny,
    It's Summer in the city and time to See my friends. It's a nice shot from what doesn't look like a Dead end street.
    Now I have exhausted my stock of useful Kinks tunes for this photo. ;-)
    I am not entirely fond of the dark vignette, otherwise it's a photo entirely to my taste. I just note once again that people look a lot less "exotic" than they did in 1986.
    Best wishes,
    Gert

    Hello Bev,
    How easily these fantastic details on the walls could have been overlooked by someone just keeping an eye of what was going on at street level. Always look up, especially when carrying a camera. I don't think any houses built today would have such fine sculptures on the fašades. These are two very interesting photos, both of them with a well managed light and perfect sharpness.

    Hello Malgo,
    Your favorite theme...? The window is nice but the clock is better. It's one small detail in this fantastic museum where the architecture is almost as impressive as the paintings and sculptures. I was probably too overwhelmed by the art to note this clock and window. At least I have no memory of it.

    Hello Takero,
    You mention it yourself, but my immediate reaction was also that these trees look like some kind of grey monsters. I am again astonished by the effect of the winter storm. It is an amazing and to me unique view.

    A window and a wall in better shape than yesterday's. The iron bars are the main feature here. They create a fine pattern and provide interesting details to the plain wall.

    Hello Stephen,
    Obviously no money was spared to make this church impress on the congregation and other visitors. I am impressed too, no doubt, and you have captured the splendour well. The light seems surprisingly strong but you avoided an overexposure.

    Hello Paul,
    These photos seem to confirm my idea of Mompox as a very quiet town. They all show beautiful buildings in a much better shape than I had somehow expected to see in Colombia (which of course only reveals my ignorance of this part of the world). Among the workshops my favorite is #3. I like the tight composition and the colours and light.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Ryszard,
    This Portuguese view has some of the greyness of Wroclaw, but I am sure the temperature was different. It looks like a very quiet evening as the town settles before nightfall. Maybe there was a disco noise in the distance but the peace of the photo is not disturbed. I like the mild colours and light and the reflections in the calm sea.

    Hello Murat,
    For me Mount Rushmore will always be connected with the Hitchcock movie North by Northwest. I don't remember seeing the monument from this angle in the movie, so this brings it into a new dimension. There is a connection between the somewhat triangular shapes of the mountain and the amphitheater and between the grey areas separated by the forest. I think seeing the heads from this distance makes them look more integrated in nature and more impressive.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Piotr,
    It is mainly the better quality of the road, and the absence of cows, that reveals you are not still in Georgia. The mountainous scenery is just as breathtaking. From this angle you managed a nice composition where the road goes on two curving diagonals and where the tracks of of maybe landslides on the distant mountainside also created fine patterns.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Luciano,
    This seems to happen all the time. You have been waiting eagerly to see a famous building and then you find it wrapped in scaffolding and tarpaulins. But if you try to see this as an installation, a work of public art, it's not so bad...;-) It's still a beautiful view of the buildings lining the narrow canal and the medieval fortress... or is it a church?... standing in the water.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Jorge,
    This is of course a very well known view, but this photo is a bit special for making the guards look like kick-boxers. Are their shoes actually touching each other, or is there a gap of a few millimeters between them? The symmetry of their postures is remarkable.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
