    Hello Nicolas,
    Is that Donald Trump having a bath? Maybe he will drown before he actually becomes president? It's a funny picture and as always you have spotted something interesting on your walk in nature.

    Hello Ike,
    This street, or maybe this is "these streets", has an amusing character. Colourful buildings with another street on top of them. Perhaps the upper one is just for pedestrians, but it still looks funny to see people walking on the roofs. It's an original city view and a rather entertaining photo.

    Hello Benny,
    This cute portrait has a kind of timeless atmosphere, thanks to the treatment and the background of rough stones. A few details of the boy's clothes reveal the recent capture. Considering the fast changing nature of Chinese economy and society there are reasons to believe he will grow up in a city rather than in his traditional village.

    Hello Serghei,
    Nobody could complain of a lack of colours in this photo. This kind of short boat trip seems like a nice change from lazing on the beach. It's not my dream of a holiday but it should be great for families. In any case it's a photo to cheer northerners up in the dark winter. I wish you a nice journey to Cyprus.

    Hello Pavle,
    You show us thee interesting photos of the noble art of making your own brandy at home. It is a fine old handicraft, but if Serbia is ever admitted to the EU it will probably no longer be permitted. Would membership be worth that price? Maybe these photos will be recordings of the past, just like your photos of abandoned houses.

    Hello Takero,
    This is a very eye-catching and attractive photo of strong colours, expressive gestures, beautiful details and an excited atmosphere. The dark night provides a perfect surrounding to the highly illuminated festival float.

    You made a great composition of the sky seen through the square opening above the elegant pillars. There are fine shapes, nice light and an eye-catching blue area. Very well done,

    You show us another beautifully captured sunset with very attractive colours. You have realized well that the people in the foreground contribute to the good atmosphere just as much as the pink and orange sky.

    Hello Ryszard,
    This is an excellent composition. The perfect red and blue diagonal ends in a perfect red and blue horizontal line. The small boy is perfectly placed all alone in the sandy area. You spotted him well and used this photo opportunity nicely.

    Hello Bülent,
    This photo nicely combines culture (the ruin and the note) with daily life and nature. The teacher is perfectly dressed for a color photo and is well placed near the upper corner, which makes him part of an invisible diagonal going to the girls' backpacks in the opposing lower corner. There is a fine balance of green tones and also the rusty brown tones of the bricks and the trees to the right.

    Hello Jean,
    I remember this interesting temple from a visit 40 years ago. Maybe there are more beautiful flowers in front of it now, otherwise I wouldn't think anything has changed. It's a remarkably colourful and attractive composition with a perfect, crowded and bright foreground.

    Hello Ourania,
    I must admire your talent for spotting interesting compositions almost anywhere. This is of course a photo of the "nothing special" category (that's a compliment), but the abandoned café and the weak light create a very strong out-of-season atmosphere. Above all this photo has remarkably well matching tones of grey and blue, which gives it a fairly harmonious character in spite of the emptiness and the obviously chilly air.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Christiane,
    This saddle is a beautiful piece of handicraft and it looks well polished by being used for a long time. It's an interesting photo, quite different from what is usually shown on TE, and the workshops are very nice too, especially the one of the horse.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Philippe,
    These capitals have been quite well kept for hundreds of years, so we can still admire the beautiful details created by ancient masters. It's a fine close look accompanied by an interesting and informative note.

    I would not complain of the quality of this photo. It's perfectly sharp and the colours look perfectly natural. It's good to see a place that hasn't been destroyed in later years, contrary to what I have shown today. :-(

    Usually people take photos of spiral staircases, but this kind offers a different but equally interesting kind of view. The are several fine diagonals, lovely details of the ceiling and a very nice light coming from several places.

    Hi Gert
    A normal Indian scenery with the roaming sacred animals seem to have made themselves right at home on the streets. A depiction of daily life in this part of the world, even though you struggle to get the colour balance right. Nice take.

    Hi Lucas
    You seem to be able to capture the essence of the charming place, the people and the moment so beautifully. The low warm lighting is my fav - being the most successful element making this capture inspiring aided by your good informative write-up. The colour enhances this so well. Lovely shot, Congrats
