    Hello Takero,
    The nice children are posing well in an attractive environment. On the leaves behind them we can see traces of the strong sun, but where the girls are standing the light is perfect and you captured them with wonderful colours.

    Hello Carlo,
    It's a well exposed photo that shows the details of the sunny and the shady area equally well. I like the contrasts of high and low, history and daily life as shown by the magnificent monument and the simple scooter taxi.

    Hello Luciano,
    I was here too and wondered about the personality cult of Stalin still so strong in Georgia. It's a very schizophrenic situation. In Gori there was all praise for the hero and nothing about the crimes of the Soviet Union and its ruling party. In Tbilisi there is a museum about the crimes committed in Georgia by the Soviet Union and its ruling party but nothing saying that the worst criminal of them all was the Georgian hero ;-).
    It's a nice photo and the two persons provide the necessary human touch.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Angel,
    It's a nice low look at the strange castle. It looks quite impressive from this POV too, not just from high up and far away. I like how you found trees on both sides to frame the view, and I like how the view is split into three horizontal sections of blue, yellow and green. The colours are good and the clarity is excellent.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello György,
    Some may think that the construction workers and the wall make the photo ugly. I don't agree. They make the view of the old houses more interesting. Something new is created, the city is changing, maybe even for the better, and the workers with their bright clothes provide us with a lot of interesting focal-points. I would naturally have taken a similar photo if I had been there.
    Best wishes,
    Gert

    Hello John,
    The brick buildings looks rather humble and modest. Maybe they were not built for the very rich people. But now at old age they look beautiful and dignified, especially in the warm light, as the one in the middle. The lively streets make the view even nicer. Especially I like the inclusion of the elderly couple in the lower corner. They are well placed, looking into the scene.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Jean,
    Finding a good title is sometimes more difficult than finding a good photo. "Keeping it clean" is fine with me. I think it forces people to watch this more carefully, not just taking a quick glance. Now we see that there is actually something going on in the foreground, there's a person at work (always a good theme), and then we can take a further look at the other boats and the nice hill full of quite attractive houses among the trees. Judging from the weather it was a good day for photography with a wonderful light and good colours.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Craig,
    The second paragraph says most of what I wanted to say. This is definitely the right way to take photos of any kind of art, in my opinion. By integrating the art with a person you make this a work of your own. It's so much better than just "stealing" what someone else has done without adding anything. This woman "interacts" perfectly with the painting of the roaring lion. It's such a good photo that I will have to add it to my favorites.
    Best wishes,
    Gert

    This view looks great also at nighttime, even without a lady in red posing in the foreground ;-). It's a beautiful blue hour photo, perfectly exposed, with three or four fantastic light sources.

    Hello Serge,
    This is above all a matter of fantastic autumn colours, but for the composition as such the church, bridge and the birds contribute a lot. The processing is quite strong but it has certainly enhanced the colours.
