    Hello Piotr,
    A breathtaking view of the mountains and the lake far below. The dark cross is a strong eye-catcher near the foregropund, and the person walking up the hill is an equally strong focus point for the composition, in spite of the competition from the scenic surroundings. I like the fine light and the soft clouds in the distance.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Roland,
    A simple but graphically very attractive and interesting photo. The white lines on the dark stones create a stunning pattern and the two men give an amusing touch to the view. They seem to be discussing something of rather great importance, at least to the man to the left, who seems to be argiuing his case.
    Best regards,

    Hi Paul,
    funny title as great the panoramic view of this section of the charmy capital of Japan.The river that penetrates the area adds depth and perspective in the scene,with the brilliant light to enhance the vivid colours and to bring out the details of the buildings.Well done.

    Hello Bev,
    This garden would require more hard work than I would be prepared to give it, but I don't mind watching it. Besides, does that boat really look safe? Lots of lovely plants though, and obviously at least one very nice tree as well, judging from the fine reflection. But a nice flat in the heart of a city is more to my taste.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Recep,
    This is a good composition where we see the praying boy from an unusual perspective. The tiled pillars (maybe Iznik?) frame the view of the boy and the beautiful carpets very nicely. You have handled the light very well.

    Hello Rosemary,
    These three pictures are even funnier than the previous ones of the giant metal burqa. Not that I understand exactly what the artist wanted to express, but do we really need to "understand" every work of art to enjoy them? This is an exhibition that puts me in a good mood, which is more than I can say sometimes when going through huge, dark rooms of Rubens' fat ladies and pompous men. Even pensioners can enjoy this with a childish mind.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    An amusing and quite charming shot. The boy does what a lot of adults would love to do unless they were so afraid to look stupid. A very well captured moment.

    Hej Trevor,
    Det är alltid spännande att öppna dina bilder för att se vad du har hittat. Inga människor denna gång men kaniner är ju också trevliga. Dessutom är landskapet väldigt trevligt, fast molnen verkar varsla om regn,

    Hello Wolfgang,
    It's a very beautiful view of the small village and the fine church. The scenery is great and the colours are strong and vivid. I would have prefered to see the small photo as a workshop instead of inserted into the main photo. Done like this I think it disturbs the view.

    Hello Mesut,
    These are amazing painted wood-carvings from yesterday's mosque. I think this kind of naive folk-art goes beyond religious or cultural borders. Similar designs can be found also in Swedish traditional peasant art, and probably in many more places. It's very interesting and beautiful.

    Hello Mohammad,
    This is a nice and cheerful photo of the boys with their umbrella hats. It is nice because of their friendly smiles and their colourful teeshirts, but also because I find this kind of photo from Saudi Arabia quite unusual, at least on TE. It's an appreciated contribution to the site.

    Hi Christiane
    Vividness of colour and detail is strong point in this shot taken at right time of day when lighting is at its premium quality as portrayed. The rest just flows into the composition smoothly with wonderful white cloud giving a superb finishing touch. Definitely an popping stuff worth sharing, Congrats

    Hi Malgorzata
    That's work of art and creativity, smart photo title too!
    The brilliant light & colours look great competently handled and I like your idea by filling the frame with the 'giant match-sticks' centrally catching the eye straight on to main focal. We get to see very close detail of it, the elaborateness and I can only imagine the time taken to make this a reality which has always amazes me. The background puts this into right perspective and inclusion of the figures really demonstrates how huge this is. A Grand shot nicely done and useful notes too, TFS.
    Best regards

    Salam Ali
    I like the slight tilt of the head and the hint of a knowing smile in the eyes and mouth. He's engaging us in conversation on equal terms he's interested in the camera but not intimidated by it. I like this a lot, I would make basically cosmetic changes but nothing substantial, tone down the distracting background, so that it doesn't compete for attention. It's a pity his eyes were in shadow, you can lighten a tiny bit to give the eye - the soul more definition and clarity. These are my sincere critiques from the bottom of my heart hopefully acceptable to you. Congrats
