    Hello Ourania,
    This photo surprised me. At first I mistook the patches of snow to be small huts all along the mountainside. Surely there couldn't be that kind of Latin American slum area in Athens? And of course there isn't. Maybe I was mislead by the cloud, which makes the mountain look much higher than it is, like somewhere among the Andes. So this is not just an attractive photo but also very interesting.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Silvio,
    Beautiful buildings along the narrow alley. The light and colours are well managed and the texture of the walls is perfectly captured.

    Hello Serge,
    The silhouettes of people in front of the fountain are perfectly captured and create a very vivid image. The façade of the building provides a fine background.

    Hello Lars,
    What a terrible job to be standing perfectly still like this for probably an hour, maybe on a very hot day, and most likely with people like you getting close with a camera. Since he was not allowed to chase you away you had time to get a perfect sharpness and exposure.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Will,
    This was only 30 years ago, and the photo has kept its colours very nicely, but still this rather makes me think of the 1950's, when I was of these boys' age. Children probably have fun this way even now, but as an ignorant pensioner I only imagine them as constantly stuck with their iPads or mobile phones, catching up on their obesity. (I'm glad to realize I'm probably wrong.) It's a very nice view anyway, with remarkably well captured tones of the water.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Zdravo Sasha. Mislim da je stil vrlo zanimljiv. Toge i lica podsjećaju me na stare ikone ali izvršenje i boje su vrlo moderni. Zanimljiva kombinacija u kojoj staro je u lipoj kombinaciji sa novim. Dinamicna kompozicija. Pozdrav. Klaudio.

    Hello György,
    A very neatly cropped and amusing photo and an amusing note. It's as so often a well spotted ordinary moment which most people would ave neglected. The WS is a nice photo but to my mind far less interesting.

    Hello Rob,
    I have of course seen this original sculpture before, but it is such a fantastic creation that it can be photographed over and over again and a new impression could always be found. This is a beautiful case of an art work that seems to be created to inspire interaction with the viewers. You have three wonderful examples of this, all of them worthy of being an official upload.
    Kind regards,

    Crno i bjelo ovog puta. Malo se sve naginje na livu stranu a to na TEu nije popularno kao i kad linija horizonta nije vodoravna. Personalno, ja volim CiB fotografije. Pozdrav i nadam se da neces brzo nestati kao mnogi nasi jer nisu dobili mnogo punta.

    Hello Christiane,
    You used the colorful billboard perfectly as a bright contrast to the view of the white scenery. It makes the photo very eye-catching and attractive. It is also a very well exposed photo with a wonderful clarity.

    Bonjour Nicolas. Je n'ai presque pas vu le village bien camouflé. J'aime l'effet filigrane des arbres des deux côtés de la rivière et la lumière chaude sur le sommet de la montagne. L'hiver peut être plein de charme, le charme que vous avez capturé si bien avec cette composition bien considéré. Cordialement. Klaudio.

    Hello Danos,
    A swan or two always makes a photo nicer, and it is the case also in this photo, but even more attractive this time are the reflections and fine colours. Especially I like the red reflections coming from something we can't see. They bring a surprising element to the photo.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Lisa,
    I think this huge rock is like a cloud, where almost any shape can be imagined and each one can see her own figure. I love the grayscale, the rough surface of the rocks and the marvellous sharpness and contrasts.

    Merhaba Mesut. It's good that you have left doors and windows for a while and are showing us a real jewel from three years ago. Incredible sunset colours, timeless mood that befits this place of legend and the dawn of civilisation. Hope to see more of such photos of Turkey. Regards. Klaudio.

    Hello Luciano,
    No snow but a wonderful warm light complementing the frozen pond. The yellow façade of the town hall shines brightly between the trees. The birds walking on the ice create a nice atmosphere.
