    Hello, Jean,
    A highly picturesque scene. The composition with rows of brown rocks, two kayakers and a red kayak itself is perfectly balanced and interesting. A very artistic job!

    Hello, Jan,
    This complex of temples does not look as ruins in your picture. Slightly weakened sharpness hides some details of destruction. As a result, the temples have almost a brand-new look. Composition, light, colors and tone of the image are excellent. Well done!

    Hello, Gert,

    Looking at this picture, I feel a sense of ambivalence. On the one hand, a group of happy kids on a bicycle evokes positive emotions, if not to take into account the fact that they violate the traffic code actually. On the other hand, the view of untidy street and neglected buildings causes a negative reaction.

    Judging your shot only from the standpoint of the art of photography, its score is 5 ("Excellent"). However, Akhaltsikhe’s public service in 2012 could deserve only 2 ("Unsatisfactory") or even 1 ("Very Poor"). I believe that now negative features in the appearance of Akhaltsikhe are being eliminated or have been eliminated already.

    My warmest regards,

    Sergiy

    Hello, Erling,
    Among the interesting minimalistic scenes captured by you in the Bo-Kaap district of Cape Town, this one seems to be the brightest and most artistic due to the nice contrast between red and wight. It was a very good idea to photograph this fragment of a wall with such an excellent color scheme. Very well done!

    You have captured this famous National Park in a very artistic manner, with the great composition, green foreground, impressive mountains and nicely clouded sky in the background. In addition, the light, colors and quality are wonderful. Perfectly well done!

    Hello, Alexandre,
    Your colorful and sunny picture could be as a tourist poster showing how attractive for tourists the Iguaçu waterfalls are. An excellent composition, interesting details, amazing constructions of the pedestrian bridge and very high quality of the picture. Perfectly well done.

    Hello, Wolfgang,
    This high-quality picture reproduces a nice atmosphere of boat trip along the Sava river. You have chosen the composition of the picture in such a way that we can see only the water around the boat, no banks. With this artistic technique you have shown that Sava is a very wide and full river. The moment of capturing also has been chosen well. We do not see any member of the boat crew, on the upper deck there are only tourists, which can enjoy the trip with ease. Excellent job!

    Hello Krzysztof,
    This photo of a narrow street in Valletta gives us a very good idea about architectural appearance of the city or at least its old blocks. You have captured the street under right angle, with good composition, where a lot of interesting details are seen, nice colors and very high quality. Excellent job!

    Hello, Fabiano,
    It seems, in 2015 you enjoyed a great travel throughout Italy and got a lot of very good pictures. This one with so fantastical pair of rocks is my favorite. The rocks were captured by you with the good composition, where there are boats, which allow to evaluate their sizes, and with excellent quality. Perfectly good presentation of these natural wonders!

    Hello, Malgorzata,
    Judging from your picture, taken using a drone, you're at the peak of technological progress. My congratulations! I like the result. Despite the overcast sky the picture is rather colorful and of good quality. I hope to see more hi-tech images shot by you.
    Best regards,

    PS: I think that in the fragment from your note "to go to Czersk, 30 km south of Warsaw" the words '30' and 'south' should be revised. I'd change them to '300' and 'north-west'. But maybe I am wrong.

    Hello, Danos,
    This high-quality picture is a very good illustration of your informative note about a type of sailing dinghy for children. It seems that in your picture the Optimist dinghies are lining before the start of a regatta, ready to take the sea even without sailors. Very good presentation of these interesting sporting facilities. Excellent job!

You have chosen a right point of view, which enables showing the bridge with a good perspective, interesting details and nice colors.

    Hello, Klaudio,
    Thanks to your photographs from England, now I know how typical English landscapes look like. Typical English weather are seen in them too. This picture, where the foreground and a part of the background are sunlit, seems to me as the most cheerful despite cemeteries present in it. An excellent composition, very right moment of capturing, a lot of interesting details, good management of light and colors, as well as the highest quality. Perfectly well done!

    This is a really beautiful view with so many interesting details. The composition gives us an opportunity to see the settlement itself in the foreground and its charming surroundings with a reservoir, green hills and mountings in the background.

    Hello, Jean-Claude,
    The interior of this church was designed masterfully. Its main pieces of decoration undoubtedly are windows, one of which we can see in your picture. Its quality is so high that we can see every detail despite of obvious lack of illumination inside the church. Very well composed and photographed, but I'd like that photographer's note be more informative. Nevertheless, an excellent job!
