    Hello Jean,
    I was surprised to read your note. I was sure this was a close-up of some strange mushrooms or plants I was not familiar with. It is a highly original artwork of a kind I have probably not seen before. The photo has good colours and the more is informative. I wondered until the last paragraph about the size, which in this case was an essential piece of information. But even after finding the Swedish word for the original plant I still have no idea what it is. ;-)
    Kind regards,

    Hello Lucas,
    This is a fascinating view down the steep street and the fine old buildings and with the dark steep rock as a background. It's a very cleverly composed photo and in the far background there is a very nice slightly hazy light.

    Hello Ourania,
    This is truly a delightful photo. It's a very distinct composition with wonderful colours. The yellow towel is flying in the wind like a flag against a perfect background of blue tones. The large almost round tree provides fine shade for those who have wisely decided to get out of the intense sun. It is also a magnificent dominant feature of the photo. The carefully handled light contributes to making this a beach photo far above the average.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Pavle,
    You have shown us many of these abandoned houses in your home town. It is sad to see them but this development of society can probably not be stopped. You do well to record what is going on, especially since you do it with fine colours and perfect sharpness.

    A fantastic combination of sand and rocks with amazing light and colours. I guess this must be one of the most fascinating areas in the world. What a pity I didn't come here.

    This is, as usual, a well composed and carefully taken photo. The light is perfectly managed and the contrasts are clear and distinct. The composition has a fine symmetry and we see many fine details.

    Hello Ike,
    You spotted these reflections well and cropped the photo cleverly. There are not so many colours but the reflections and slight movements of the water has created wonderful tones of blue and green.

    Wonderful mountains with very attractive curves. There is a beautiful contrast between the mainly green foreground and the grey background. It's a perfectly crisp and clear photo.

    Hello Will,
    This photo is slightly related to the one I posted a few days ago, but I readily admit this is much better. I like the few details and the distinct curves of the mountains across the bay. The couple on the bench are well placed and create a fine atmosphere in spite of the dull weather. I enjoyed the short time I spent in Perast and the entire Kotor Bay area is fantastic.

    Hello Daniel,
    In my memory I tend to mix up some of the Saxon villages I saw, but I am quite sure I walked along this road. The buildings were not all in a perfect shape but they were all very attractive and charming, and that is obvious also from this photo. The colours are superb.

    A 'busy' colourful image and plenty here to keep the eye occupied from back to fore but eventually the the bold sign settles the focus being the winner as main interest

    Hi Luis
    Interesting narratives, an aged beauty revealing its solid architectural style with a character of it's own. I love the subtle clarity and abound of detail to savour on the stonework finished by lovely touch of vivid colour on both end of frame. You have done a fine photo work here, Excellent catch.
    Best wishes

    Hello Malho,
    It must have been some disappointment that there wasn't even a hamburger bar. How boring, all alone in a big canyon ;-). The shapes of the rocks are stunning, and so are the colours. Since the sky looks normal I suppose the colours of the rocks are also perfectly correct. Amazing.
    By the way, the town in Carlo's photo is not the oldest in Italy but the highest administrative town. ;-)
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Nicolas.
    This is a nice and colourful photo of the painter, He is well placed inside the vault with a dark background and we can see his painting well. As we don't see the actual scenery we can only guess if he is good. But for this photo it doesn't matter.

    Hello Lars,
    The sun shines mainly on the fine old buildings. Maybe that some way should be seen symbolically. It's a good view of a square of a city I don't know much about, except that it's supposed to be quite nice, which this photo also indicates. I always thought of Samuel Adams mainly as a brewery making pretty good beer. In fact, when I make a Google search the brewery comes first, the founding father second. ;-)

    Hello Luciano,
    This is similar to your photo Inside Napoli, which you posted some time ago. Maybe it's the same street with a different composition. Sometimes there are so many such "disturbing elements" that they naturally become the motif and nothing to be avoided, because you can't avoid them. A view like this says as much about the city as a "clean" beautiful view at street-level.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Jorge,
    I remember this fantastic window. I was impressed in the 1970's and I am just as impressed when seeing it again in this photo. It's really a masterpiece. You captured it well with a good light.
