    Hi Camilla

    Great B&W perspective well rythmed by the pavement and the pillars, the lonely human presence is well located and gives life to the shot.
    Cheers

    Hello Camilla,

    At the outset, I want to welcome you to this exceptionally addictive site few people have escaped. This is a spectacular shot with the best of "one-point perspective." The man is perfectly placed in the frame and adds both scale and a human touch. The composition, colors, resolution, depth-of-field are all extraordinary.

    Warm regards from Washington,

    Hello Christiane,

    With the intense sunlight in the American wild West you were able to achieve remarkable depth-of-field. The foreground is as sharp as the distant mountains.

    Hello Serghei,

    Where photographers are aiming their cameras is always a good place to start shooting. They were there before you, and have already done some scouting. You also set up the audience curiosity of the viewer of the, and graciously answered what the photographer is aiming her camera at. No doubt she got good results, she is using one of those new shutterless cameras. I considered getting one before I bought my newest pocket camera, but the decision was made for me. The family gave me a Lumix with a Leica lens, not as fast as the shutterless camera, but very sharp.

    Warm regards,

    Witaj Ryszard,

    All good art is "open-ended." Each viewer has a different interpretation, and you've given the two ends of possible interpretations in your title. This is an excellent photo quality wise, the product of very good camera in the hands of a skilled photographer.

    Hello Will,

    This is indeed an excellent contribution to the theme of Old Doors. An indispensable part of any architectural edifice, except in one of the earliest cities ever, in Catalhuyuk, where the inhabitants would climb ladders and enter through trapdoors in the roof.

    Hello Lucas

    I'm always drawn for some reason, to monochrome images, and this one, with its strong contrasts and chiaroscuro effect, really exploits the b/w medium to its maximum. A good workaday subject too.

    Hello Denis

    I thought the cloud in the background was a snowy mountain when I first looked at the thumbnail. But it's still the cloud which creates the composition, echoing, as it does, the maze of white dwellings in the foreground. And that orange tower set on the thirds line is the icing on the cake. Nice one.

    Excellent and graphic image: I like it a lot. I might like it even more without the orange plastic outboard dinghy in the frame, but it was so close, you couldn't really consider cropping it out.

    Hello Sven

    I've seen the "solution" to the puzzle, and it's a wonderfully inventive sculpture (?), but I prefer this more radical and edgy close-up. The angry, strong colour, and the well-placed leaves are all we are given in this tight frame, and all we need!

    A clever and well-seen reflective shot. I like the disjuncture between the "real" and the "reflected". Good colour harmony too.

    Bonjour Serge,

    This is a spectacular action shot of the gaggle of geese taking flight. I'm surprised that in mid-November, they are still in Canada and have not headed south yet. We have a pond behind our house, a pit stop for Canadian geese flying south for the winter, like New Yorkers heading down to Florida.

    Warm regards,

    Olá Neyvan,

    You had a superb vantage point to present this street image of SÃO PAULO. When we were visiting Brazil in late December 2015-early January 2016, I had a chance to take a trip to Visit the great city and to give a lecture at the UNIVERSITY OF SÃO PAULO. Unhappily, the students were just returning from summer vacation and we could not extend our stay in Rio. One day, I hope...

    Warm regards,

    Hello Christiane

    Great idea, but I think you've been defeated by the low light: although there's no EXIF data provided, this has all the hallmarks of camera-shake induced by slow shutter speed, and insufficient ISO. A shame as it's a strong composition, and beautifully graphic.

    Hello Will,

    This is a wonderfully engaging shot, with the little child in tears at an old door. The Old Town Section of Tallinn became a favorite area for me after a visit to Estonia in 2010. I just stored this photo in the group gallery Old Doors. I know that you like B&W, but those old doors in Tallinn would work just as well in color. What augments the photo, of course, is the presence of the child. But you've inspired me to submit an old door or two.

    Warm regards,

    Bulent

    A crop, presumably, but expertly achieved to emphasize the simple, graphic composition that you had seen in the viewfinder. I like the colour contrasts and the strong shadows in particular.

    Hello Rob,

    What an intense red on the roof of Auberge du Trésor (I like your description "screaming red"). My guess is that the cable draped in sine-waves serve as a heating element to melt snow, and let the water flow into a gutter.

    Hello Lars,

    I'm glad to see this photo, and to read the dedication the to Brenda Elaine, Trekearth's nominee for the "Queen of New York." We have all learned so much about the monuments and slices of every-day-life from her photos. Carol Jean and I had the pleasure of meeting Brenda a few years ago and celebrating a micro TE-meetings. She knows the modern center-of-the-world, better than anyone else. You had an excellent vantage point to see Union Square, with the Empire State Building looming in the distance. I was wondering of the subject of the Equestrian Statue. So it is George Washington. If you wandered to Central Park South, you probably saw the remarkable display of fathers of Latin American Countries also.

    Warm regards,

    Bulent

    Bruges I know well; Damme I've never been to. My loss, obviously. This is a lovely corner, showing a bend in the canal, lines of trees yet to gain their Spring green and houses on the horizon. I don't need anything else.
