    Hello Maria,
    This is also a fitting tribute to the poor people of Nepal. It's a nice and colorful photo, but it is so sad that so many people may have lost their incomes, even if their lives were saved. For a long time the majority of tourists will probably not want to go to Nepal.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Ourania,
    What a lucky encounter in the street. These people bring more character and colours to the view than you would expect any normal day on the way from work. You show us two very fine photos, and maybe you add something to the already widespread fame of this group.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Ana,
    This looks like a very beautiful place. The scenery is dramatic and you have composed the photo well. The many terraces create a fine and dynamic pattern and I like the many dark tones, with the church as nearly the only exception.

    Hello Achim,
    A very nice view from this largely unknown country. The long bridge creates good depth and the beach doesn't look too crowded. The colours are very nice.

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    Another good portrait but also a rather haunting and disturbing photo. The woman's eyes indicate sorrow and many shame, or at least that is how I interpret her gaze. Maybe she is just embarrassed at having her photo taken. In any case the her bright colours make her equal to most Indian women.

    Hello Harriet,
    a really strange for my eyes art work 'Ballast' that for one more reason is so close to the sea.The snows that spread on the ground and so close to the firing sculpture creates avery interesting contrast.

    Hello Achim,
    the place looks so beautiful with the palm trees to almost 'touch' the sea.The wooden bridge creates depth and perspective as lead-in the eye to the superb but empty sandy beach.

    Hello Angshuman,
    Maybe the present butcher leader of Uzbekistan will receive a similar mausoleum when he eventually dies. Probably it will not be as beautiful as this one, and probably it will not last for hundreds of years. Today we can admire the marvellous architecture and craftsmanship of that era long ago, and I also admire your nice and very symmetrical composition, as well as your fine light management.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Craig,
    Having your hair shaved in the temple has indeed a religious significance. What happens with the hair is usually that it is collected and sold to firms that use it for making very expensive whigs, sold all over the world. In this photo you have captured the religious connection even indirectly from the way the barber is resting his hand on the pilgrim's head. It makes me think of a priest giving somebody his blessing. So this picture is a lot more than just another shave in the street.
    Best wishes,
    Gert
