    Hello Kasia,
    Very elegant shoes, nice craftmanship, but are they really comfortable and good for the feet? A smart way of advertising them anyway and a good setting for a photo.

    Hello Kasia,
    I love this set of photos. They would all have been good enough for regular uploads, especially the one with the grumpy young man and the talkative older one. This girl looks like a natural born model, very cute and looking aware of it. Speaking Russian you must have had a great advantage among these people. I could only have managed a few words or sentences of Turkish. Hardly enough for a conversation. But can contemporary politics be discussed openly in the land of the Aliyevs? People go to jail for that.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Bev,
    Lots of people, colours and nicely rounded shapes. You have also cropped it very nicely with no essential details cut off. I like it.

    Hello Angel,
    This is a beautiful square with fine buildings in pastel colours. You included the rounded area of lighter stones very nicely in the composition and managaed to capture a person with a red coat inside it. I like the slightly subdued light and the very mild colours.

    Hello John,
    This is a terrific photo, perfectly composed and perfectly exposed. This show must have been great fun and those women dancing on the wings are probably better protected than the average Asian construction worker.

    Hello Malgo,
    A very nice photo. The bird is wonderful and I hope it is allowed a better life than those poor creatures kept for tourist photos at the Potemkin steps in Odessa. It would be fun to watch these lovely birds so closely, but I may not like to have one on my head.
    Cheers,

    Hello Malgo,
    Last Sunday a terrible thunder storm cut off my internet connection and my TV, but now i am back to a normal life :-). Maybe there are many photos of this, but I am not familiar with this interesting consruction. I am not sure about its purpose, because as you say it doesn't seem to provide much shade, but the design is very elegant and creates a fine play of light and dark areas. It's also good for the photo that this is an area attracting a lot of people.
    Kind regards,

    Hello again,
    This is a very elegant composition in a refined B&W style. Very few details but distinct features near three corners (and your signature near the fourth). A quiet sea with fine tones of grey. Only one dog (I think) waiting to greet the catamaran, or so it seems. It looks like a very quiet day on Leros.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Ourania,
    Finally I feel I am properly back in the 21st century:-). I like this photo a lot, and not just because of the "halos". They are sitting the same way, facing the same direction, providing nicely matching colours and creating a minor mystery as to what they are talking about or watching. Are you sure they didn't just step out of the restaurant so they could enjoy a smoke without disturbing the other guests?
    Kind regards,

    Hello Jasmine,
    A fine sculpture and a very interesting clock. They knew how to create fantastic "machines" even a very long time ago. It's also a cleverly taken photo creating a good sense of depth through the mirror. As so many times before you have used the limited light very well.
    Kind regards,

    Hello John,
    This is a very nice composition. I like the diagonal line of the canal and the two different diagonals leading into it: the boat and waves from one side and the wooden construction from the other. The colours are very pleasantly mild and the clouds are pretty.

    Hello,
    Of course I like this too. This kind of tea party looks a lot nicer than the Sarah Palin style. The friendly attitudes are very typical. The man to the left could have some trouble getting a US visa with that beard and rosary, but I'm sure he was a nice guy. I think it was actually a good choice to keep the fisheye so you could capture the whole group and so much background, and they're not even distorted:-).
    Kind regards,

    Hello Craig,
    I don't know if you're thinking of me in the first sentence...? I do like some postcard views as long as they don't look exactly the same as one thousand photos before it. You make this look quite fresh by including the huge rocks in the foreground. I always wondered what the area looks like where everybody else take their identical postcard views :-). Now I know. The boats also add something different. The clouds are cute too. On the thumbnail I thought they looked like water splashing onto your camera.
    If you wondered about my recent silence I was cut off from the internet and TV for four days after a severe thunder storm, that caused a lot of damage.
    Cheers,
    Gert

    Salut Christiane.
    Très belle POV, cette côte rocheuse, ainsi coupé et plein d'appels entrants et sortants, la population avec ses toits rouges sur le dessus de la colline donne beaucoup de charme à ce lieu magnifique.
    Très belle couleur, dans ces tons naturels.
    Également à la fois la netteté, tels que l'éclairage est super.
    Profitez d'une belle journée.
    Cordialement.
    Luis.

    Hello Piotr.
    A great composition with this splendid landscape, I like the contrast between the foreground hillside, with soft green grass and the mountains we see the bottom covered with woodland, this curious rock formation, like a jagged wall.
    Very nice color, in these natural tones.
    Also both sharpness, such as lighting are great.
    Enjoy a nice day.
    Best regards.
    Luis.

    Hola Maria.
    Un bonito contraluz el de estas personas, en agradable conversacion, a la sombra, tambien al fondo vemos gente a la sombra, la soleada pradera esta desierta, esto quiere decir que el dia era veraniego.
    Muy bonito color, en estos tonos tan naturales.
    También tanto la nitidez, como la iluminación están muy bien, aunque era dificil.
    Disfruta de un buen dia.

    Hi Swapan,
    I like that you have captured some blur of movement on the dancers it helps to bring us into the scene and feel the atmosphere. They all look like they are enjoying themselves with big smiles. Nice warmth from the afternoon light to bring a lovely glow and warmth of colour to the image.
    Regards
