    Hello Silvio,
    This is an interesting composition of the curved line of stones on the lawn in the foreground and the lines of buildings up on the hill. The panoramic shape suits this composition excellently and the fine light and colours make it very appealing.

    Hello Daniel,
    I like the balance between the pink flowers and red motor-bikes. It's a nicely elegant composition of mainly very pretty buildings seen from a good angle. The light and colours are superb.

    Hello Rob,
    This looks like a simple photo, but I am sure that a less talented photographer could have missed this opportunity completely. This kind of outstanding simplicity is usually the result of careful considerations. The white on blue and the curved edge of the diagonal lines is superbly elegant. It's really a striking composition.

    Hello Pierre,
    There are many airplanes shown on TE but most photos are taken from the ground, so this is a very rare photo from the same level. It's a marvellously sharp photo and a fantastic view of the ground. You must have had a amazing experience (unless you are a pilot yourself).

    Hello Denis,
    This is a very beautiful view down the hill to the small lake and the mountains on all sides. The small building is nicely placed in the photo, and for the people who live - or lived - there the view from the garden must have been fantastic. This is a "postcard" of high quality and wonderful colours.

    Hello Ike,
    I think we will have to wait until these towers are finished before we judge their beauty, or lack of it. But already now they create interesting silhouettes against the orange sky at dusk, and the cranes add quite attractive details.

    Some of these buildings are absolutely fantastic and the people make the entire view very pleasant. Green and pink trousers and red shirts definitely brighten the view.

    A very nice photo from a town looking like it belongs to a fairytale. The buildings are very pretty and the colours are excellent. The diagonal line of flower-pots makes a good lead into the picture.

    Hello Claude,
    Technically not the best photo because of the light, which you have pointed out yourself, but a well spotted moment and an amusing composition. Within limits, I always care more for the composition than the technical perfection.

    The view as such, and your technique of capturing it, makes this look like a painting with intense colours and contrasts. The waterfall and the sky have been marvelously treated in this stunning photo.

    Hello Christiane,
    This is an amazing work of art to meet at the entrance to the museum, and it is also a good photo which shows this large room from a fine angle where you have used the space and the light perfectly. The visitors animate the view and create an excitement of great expectations of what is waiting for them.

    Hello Ryszard,
    I thought this was some kind of roller coaster, and my immediate reaction was that I would never go down this slope at high speed. But now I realize it would be an interesting structure to climb, as long as I wouldn't have to use the water slide on my way down. It's a very original watch tower, quite beautiful and looking amazing from a distance, as in the WS. It's a great contribution to TE.

    Hello Jorge,
    I had to look carefully for a moment to make sure this was not a street artist. In this version Hanuman looks quite human. It's an interesting photo, because even disregarding that it's a Hindu god, it's a kind of sculpture that would be hard to find in a western culture,

    Hello Bülent,
    I didn't read the books and didn't see the movies, but before reading the note I thought that if this had been in Scandinavia I would have expected to meet a "troll" here. I guess the Golum is not far off. It's a beautiful forest with a fine light that makes the moss shine brightly. You framed this view well and made a perfect exposure.

    Hello Carlo,
    This is a simple but very elegant composition, carefully balanced and with a good use of the long shadow cast by the tree. I think most photographers would not have realized the potential of this place. On a cloudy day this would have been nothing, but the good light has created great opportunities to make a digital "painting".

    Hello Piotr,
    Even though this photo just shows a mountainside it is remarkably full of attractive details and is graphically very beautiful. I like the many patches of green against the grey rock and the zigzag line of the path leading up to the cave's entrance. The workshop is very nice too, largely because the man is so brightly dressed.

    The title says it all. Although the boats and jetties are very nice features, and the distant hill looks great, the essence of this photo is no doubt the wonderful golden light in the background and the dark blue tones of the water.

    Hello John,
    It was a somewhat dull day, but a lady in red can brighten anything. It was absolutely a good idea to include these two persons. No matter how nice the restored castle looks, the two photographers make the view more interesting. Unfortunately there are those who would have waited impatiently for them to leave. The little that is seen of the surroundings by the sea are just as attractive as the castle, so there should be a lot of lovely views in this area.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
