    Hello Lars,
    Old domes and towers dominate this view but the quite attractive red and white cranes indicate that this part of London is also growing and changing. If you come back to this place in a couple of years the view will probably be different. It was a rather cloudy day but there is still a trace of warm evening light on the dome of St Paul's.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Ike,
    I think I recognize these locks but this still seems like a fresh new angle with a number of rather expensive new boats nicely distributed inside the frame. You managed good colours and light in the ever cloudy weather. I might have missed the family of ducks unless you had pointed them out. ;-)
    Kind regards,

    Hello Rob,
    What a pity there wasn't a lady in red down there on the ice to indicate the dimensions. I guess these patches of ice are quite big, but lacking any sense of dimensions it's up to my imagination to discover strange patterns. The main part could have been a Google map picture of a city in winter. It looks like it's full of streets and roads and parks. Maybe I am wrong. The WS is a bit more easy to detect. Obviously this was an interesting part of your flight.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Silvio,
    The persons involved in the photo session help to underscore the fine depth created by the road leading up to the colonnade. Of course they also bring life to the view. The sky is almost as attractive and eye-catching as the colonnade. In fact, every part of this photo contains nice features. The colours are wonderful and there is a superb symmetry.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Pierre,
    The water has a beautifully strong blue tone which balances the light blue sky and the green land very nicely. The grey cabin looks very alone and abandoned in the wilderness. The nicely composed photo shows a scenery which seems to be far from any city.

    Hello Serge,
    The empty grey walls and chimneys form a strange but rather attractive background to the lovely view of the beautiful old buildings. I like the uneven heights and sizes of the smaller buildings and the almost cubistic image they create. The fine sky is an important part of this excellent and very well exposed composition.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Pavle,
    This will probably be a nice restaurant, if the food is as good as the interior seems to be. You combined three interesting photos in a nice composition. All photos, including the workshops, are well taken with excellent light management.

    Hello Claude,
    An amusing "nothing special" scene from the street. Maybe the Queen had decided to take a bus ride and was escorted by the police horses? The red bus and the policemen's bright vests go quite well together.

    It's a fine composition from a city which I believe is less often seen here. The reflections are magnificent. Maybe the red tone is slightly strong.

    Hello Bev,
    This is a very original photo, for the subject as such (explained by the interesting note) and even for the "design" and colours of this stump of a tree. The drilled holes on the top create a nicely curved line. The workshop also shows an interesting exhibition of "installations" in the nature. I appreciate this kind of unusual contributions to the site.
    Kind regards,

    The beach looks like most other beaches, "nothing special", but the colours are remarkable and the shrubs and flowers are perfectly placed in the foreground. It's a quite stunning photo.

    Hello Malgo,
    A nice view with beautiful flowers in the foreground. Of course ;-) I prefer the WS which to me is a more original composition of what looks like a fashion show on a cat-walk in a national park.

    Hello Krzysztof,
    What a very strange bathroom. It looks as big as a minor apartment and just as well furnished. It's an interesting photo and you handled the light well, but I am quite happy to have a more modern kind of bathroom in my own apartment.

    Hello Jorge,
    I thought that actually Thira is the original name of the island and Fira is the only name of the capital town. Never mind. It's a very good photo that also includes a lot of the dramatic steep rocks outside the town. The combination of quite strong light and a dark cloudy sky creates a less often seen atmosphere in this place.

    A very good composition where the ruins and the gravestones are all very neatly placed on diagonals. The superb colours and light make the view very attractive, and of course the magnificent ruins are extremely eye-catching.

    Hello György,
    This is more like the Gdansk I saw. Raincoats and umbrellas make me recognize the city. Certainly no colours were missed in this b&w conversions. The vertical shape also goes well with the elements of the street.

    Hello Carlo,
    The conversion to black and white works well with this composition. The play of light and shady areas has created a pleasant atmosphere in this very elegant courtyard. The photo is very nicely composed with a good balance, largely thanks to the positions of the flower pots.
    Kind regards,
