    Hi Robert
    Wonderful perspective, love your comp you get drawn all the way down the blocks portraying the hustle and bustle of urban life so well here. Somehow this viewpoint makes it look like a hollywood set especially the background buildings and there is so much in it and the detail is great from fore ground to background, almost a kaleidoscope of colours and symbols! Top work, Congrats

    Hi Ana
    This almost as if the scene has been posed for you - a pleasing composition with the huge Cross makes a firm element connecting it to the animals and the whole
    capture. Love all the deep colours, well highlighted features on a bright sunny day which lends a nice overall contrast. You have framed the shot precisely putting the whole shot into perspective. Great shot and your tireless effort!! Congrats

    Hi Lisa
    Nice to see seascape which have not been spoilt by exploitation which gives me a great feeling of freedom of the sea as the tide meanders through the rocky shoreline and dino's back. Such a tranquility, impressive clarity & depth and lovely long exposure effect on the water really suits the gentle tones of the sky with utterly breathtaking pastel colour creating a magical aura!! Your attention to detail shines through, quality image this is. Congrats

    I like the way touch of diagonal from the moving boat draws your eye through the image and the surrounding features. Nice viewpoint, intense colours and the composition really sets this off. A well caught moment, Congrats

    Hi Bulent
    You certainly chose the right lens for the job! This is a fabulous shot, under what must have been less than ideal conditions as far as lighting is concerned. Your toning, and choice of background is perfect for this, interesting exhibit - a glimpse at history. The warm tones really enhances the subject splendidly!
    Congrats

    Hello Will,
    Boring studies become less boring with a coffee and fresh air and sunshine. Maybe she didn't find German boring at all, actually. It's a nice composition which probably falls into the category of street photos. The folded umbrella complements the lamp-post and the palm and creates some free space above the girl. You avoided too harsh contrasts in the strong light.
    Best wishes,
    Gert

    Hello Lars,
    I don't know what the average Canadian city looks like, but this looks quite European to me. I am sure generally that Canada has much more in common with Europe than the USA. It's a nice street with several fine buildings, a number of red details here and there and pleasant colours. Well done.

    Hello Lisa,
    Poor you, having nowhere but a rock to go after work. Hopefully you could console yourself with the view of the sea, the pink sky and the waves floating like cream across the rocks. For a moment I thought I saw a fossilized crocodile somewhere in the middle. It's a nice exposure too.

    Hello Serghei,
    There is a lot of water in this photo, along with spray and haze and clouds flowing low and high. It's very spectacular, for sure an unforgettable sight for you, and there is a fine balance between the people in the lower left corner and the high-rise Canadian buildings on the uppe right side.

    Hello Jorge,
    In photos from India from the 1940's and 50's nearly all Indian men were wearing this kind of white hat, not least all the leaders of the Congress Party. They still had them during my first journeys but in later years I have seen them rarely. It's nice that they are still worn in parts of the countryside. They look almost as traditional as the oxen with their painted horns. It's a nice rural view and the green tarpaulin makes a fine background.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Costantino.
    This is an interesting photo of a kind you don't show us so often. The walls with different kinds of graffiti make a lively impression and the young woman makes great contribution to this. She is perfectly placed against a large blue square opposite to the small trees. It is a cleverly spotted moment where nothing is really happening but a lot of action still seems to be going on.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Rob,
    This could also have been from a train journey through China, if the red fence had been red flags (and no American flag on the train). The long train and tracks, the grey steel pillars and the red fence give the view superb depth and several diagonals come together neatly at the far end, where another train is approaching. It's another photo with fine graphic qualities.

    Hello Chris,
    It's a very attractive installation, quite well known by now. The sky is spectacular enough for my taste (I mean, you don't always need to have everything purple or orange for a photo like this). For my taste the people on the beach make up perfectly well for some lack of bright sky. The low perspective is perfectly all right anyway.

    Hello Sergio,
    A very nice photo from Prague, looking much more idyllic than I would have expected. It's a beautiful square and the buildings look well maintained (or restored). They are nicely painted and the colours generally are very attractive. As always in this kind of photos the people animate the view.

    There's not much for vegetarians here, but the sausages and other kinds of meat probably taste deliciously. You show these traditional dishes in five very good and colourful photos, nicely presented.
