    Hello Ike,
    What a beautifully green lawn. It makes such a great contrast to the grey sky. I imagine this is a very fashionable part of the city, judging from the style of the buildings behind the trees. The well saturated colours and the fine clarity no doubt mean a lot to this photo.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Craig,
    I am glad that you have learned to like this kind of photos that may not be technically totally perfect but capture the atmosphere of a brief moment. There is so much to treasure in this picture: the colours of the shirts, the colour and details of the wall, the light near the wall, the faces turned towards you. Maybe you have realized that "nothing special" often means the "very special" photos that show people busy with their real lives. Such photos are usually unique. A photo looking exactly like this has never been taken before, but there are many more or less identical photos of the Taj Mahal or the Eiffel Tower.
    Best wishes,
    Gert

    Hello Claude,
    Maybe he is ready for a fight with one of the crocodiles found in Manchester, or he is on his way to act as a soldier in a reenactment of the battle of Waterloo. He is anyway well spotted in a place full of matching colours.

    Hello Sergio,
    The freshly painted doors and windows indicate these buildings are still inhabited, so it's a pity no people are seen here. They are probably tired of being photographed by tourists, which is understandable. It's a good photo anyway, with the excellent colours and light and the fine view of the buildings that it provides.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Pavle,
    You have taken a good photo of what must have been a nice home for people some time ago. The still bright yellow walls contrast beautifully with the green lawn and the red fences. The photo is taken from a nice point where the fences seem to hold the composition together. The light is very good too.

    Hello Philippe,
    What I like about this photo is the different styles of the boats assembled here. Quite a lot of interesting details can be found in a careful examination of the photo. The good light and sharpness make the examination more fun.

    Hello Sergio,
    These buildings are beautifully designed and seem to be part of a plan covering a larger area. They all seem to fit so well together and are well balanced against each other. The tight cropping underscores the ambition of the city planners.

    Hello John,
    Floating markets are usually seen in Asia, so it's nice to discover one also in Belgium, even if the colours and light are not as bright as normally in Asia. But these boat are nice complements and contrasts to the traditional buildings of Ghent. The woman seen to the right is nicely included.

    Hello Bülent,
    This is great fun and very eye-catching. Seeing a car moving through the water is a photo opportunity not to be missed, and if the floating car happens to be red it should be compulsory for anyone with a camera to document it. Your description confirms that this was not a totally rational vehicle, which the manufacturer also seems to have realized already after four years.

    This is a lovely view of the blossoming apricot trees, the steep hillside and the snow covered peaks in the distance. It's a promising sign of spring approaching fast and captured with a fine light and mild colours.

    A straightforward and very attractive photo with excellent colours and contrasts. The central parts of Italy seem to have a never ending number of medieval churches and villages attractively placed on hilltops. Who could ever get tired of views like this?

    Hello Luciano,
    He probably got a fine photo of the illuminated church across the square, but this photo is more fun. I usually get very curious when I see someone taking a photo, but I can't always know what they found so interesting, so the map view was very useful. These buildings are also nice and the well handled light makes it a good photo, but the human activity is the most interesting.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Stephen,
    Sometimes faded paint and cracked plaster gives an abandoned and decayed building a texture reminding of modern art. There is a lot of that here, especially on the upper floor. Downstairs a graffiti painting and the bright flowers have helped time and weather to improve the artistic quality of the wall. Nicely spotted.

    Hello Krzysztof,
    It was worth climbing the tower, because this is a very nice view of the small village and the countryside. The light and colours are surprisingly fine for a day in late December. The perfect sharpness also makes this an attractive photo.

    Hello Saša,
    Maybe the weather was a bit gloomy but the scenery is lovely and it's a very appealing photo. The composition is nicely divided into sections of dominant colours. You have used a palette of beautifully mild colours of the grass and trees. I like this photo very much.

    Hello Bev,
    We usually hope for ladies in red to brighten our photos but these unexpected men in red do just as well. Unfortunately I have no idea who they were but I enjoy this bright and amusing photo just as much. The glimpse of attractive buildings behind their black van provides quite a nice background too.
