    Hi Eleu
    The glow of the Sandstone really makes this sing! Well, this shot is indeed envious and to have been able to be there and view it in person must have been a privilege of nature. You are certainly adept with that camera of your choice and your various chosen vistas, along with the sharing of the beauty captured is of mutual benefit to all. You have registered the essence of what is Sedona. Well done

    Great timing which is slower than your prev upload producing such a fine motion blur and that hat gives a sense of stability in the picture. It's creative, imaginative and this becomes an interesting abstraction and a real feel to the shot. Awesome capture, Congrats

    Hello Daniel,
    There are many fine details in this photo, including the cobbled stones and pigeons and the small signs on the tree. The branches of the tree frame the view very nicely at the top.

    Hello Ryszard,
    From the thumbnail I was sure this was an extravagant piece of graffiti, and indeed there are similarities. It's a beautiful and very eye-catching work of public art, ideally made for photographs. You made a very good choice to include the photographer for the life and dimensions he adds.
    Kind regards,

    Hi Piotr
    Another 'top of the world' shot and what an amazing piece of rugged scenery with the lake deep down carrying the eye into the whole scene and beyond blanketed by greyish mist. The natural colour tones and brightness suits the conditions and touch of white snow adds a little something extra boosting the visual aspect and depth of whole scene. A fine photo work, Congrats

    Hello Costantino,
    A very fine and original composition. It looks like an enlarged detail of an impressionist painting. The colours are fantastic. Very well done.

    Hello Malgo,
    The beach as such is fine, but I can feel right through the screen of my monitor that this is not Greece or Spain, even though there are cloudy days in the Mediterranean area as well. I wouldn't even dip my toes in this probably ice cold water. But it was a good place for relaxing a while and the children playing in the sand are cute and seem to have fun.
    But I was surprised to see that you were not wearing sandals! :-)
    Kind regards,

    Hello Maria,
    As long as we don't actually see the trash, the filter makes a very elegant curve, ideal for a photo along with the birds sitting on it. The golden waves are very beautiful and the light is also shining nicely on the wooden poles that create a fine background. You made a very good observation of the beauty of simplicity.

    Hello Maged,
    Apart from the cars and maybe a few other details this photo has the character and colours of a 19th century painting. I like the depth you have achieved through the canal and the view of the masts in the harbour. The clouds are beautiful and the light is very attractive.

    Hi Silvio
    A strong shot emphasising on immense depth and long perspective using the diagonals to converge naturally to a vanishing point. Lovely natural colour, textures and exposure control is spot on. Fine shot, Congrats

    Hello Maged,
    On my visit to Helsinki last year I was also fascinated by these steps and the graphically interesting photo opportunities they offered. You used these three persons, their colours and the pigeon very well.

    Hello Maged,
    This is a very nice snapshot from the street in a style that I like. It is a well captured tender moment for the newly married, and the combination with the huge posters in the window makes this an amusing scene. Only last August I was in Helsinki for the very first time (although I live in Stockholm, so very near) and had a lot of fun taking photos of this kind. I enjoyed Helsinki very much.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Angel,
    This is a very interesting view with so much to watch. An ancient church, the river and the bridge, the town, fields and distant hills. It's a well composed photo with very nicely mild colours and a good light.

    Hello Jean,
    This is a most lovely garden. It makes me think of a painting by somebody like Renoir or Monet, but Nature itself is probably the best artist. The little shelter is well placed and the bushes behind it form a nice dark green background.

    Hi Serge
    This is sure a very interesting take as we can see a clear separation between old tradition and the ultra modern buildings married together! The Library building is a clear winner for me, but they both add such an impressive overall contrast enriching the whole cityscape. Wonderful capture and tfs

    Hi Ourania
    A nice aerial shot showing the overall view of the terrain below with the pov enhancing the feel of height and depth. The deep colour rendition portrays the exact situation with excellent clarity minus the glare from the window. The shimmering water adds the extra interest. Excellent capture, Congrats

    Hi Maria
    What I love about this shot is the interplay of green, blue and red basic colours to greatest effect and how well they contrast each other. A great work showing the intricate detail of this modern building, clarity is fine with the light dash adds that extra touch. Great capture as always, Congrats.
