    Hello Bev,
    Welcome back. It's nice to hear you had a good time on Ibiza. I think many of these very popular Mediterranean islands are actually much better than their reputation, at least if you can avoid the areas filled with young tourists busy with drinking and stripping contests.
    This is a very nice photo with an appealing simplicity. The white wall and the blue sky are nicely separated by a slight diagonal. The elegant lamppost and its shadow are well placed and the shadow of an unseen palm adds a glimpse of nature.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Rob,
    Do they really have fun or do they mainly want to expose their muscles and flat bellies to people passing by? ;-)
    I suppose these well trained bodies represent some kind of architecture, but very different from that of Manhattan or Rotterdam. It's an amusing and original photo where I especially appreciate the steep hills in the background. You cropped the photo nicely to keep the sky out.
    Kind regards,

    Hi dear Daniel

    So stylish and authentic postcard image.
    Very well considered framework and composition for combination of many chairs with manyb parasols.
    Deep exposure makes so poetic image as such.

    All the best and have a good day! Takero

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    Judging from your description this town should attract crowds of tourists, so the only way to get photos with any sense of authenticity would be to rise early. You captured a wonderful, quiet atmosphere before the tourists had even finished their breakfasts, and the low rays of the rising sun are beautifully reflected in the well polished cobbled stones. The contrast of early light and lingering darkness contributes to the good atmosphere.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Kari,
    This is only the 48th photo on TE from St Kitts & Nevis, so we don't see these views very often. I guess this could have been Greece or Fiji or just about anywhere with lots of water and islands, but it's an attractive photo anyway with bright colours and a fine light.

    Hello Malgo,
    This looks like a photo your grandma could have taken on her expedition to Central Asia in 1916. You really made this look very old. These tombs are very picturesque and look similar to many I have seen in Turkey and Algeria, among other places. The conversion to sepia was a smart idea.

    This is a bright and lively photo with lots of interesting details. I always love to spend some time in areas like this, trying to disappear in the crowds and take colourful snap-shots like this.

    Hello György,
    I admit to being a conventional person with a common taste for beautiful skies with a reduced noise. This photo is really quite spectacular in a discreet way. The clouds are strangely shaped as a circle around the sun and you have captured (manipulated?) the rays across the field very nicely. It's a beautiful photo surely deserving more attention.
    Have a nice weekend,
    Gert

    Hello Luciano,
    Even though I can't see the fresco paintings clearly their mild pastel colours contribute well to the quiet and pleasant atmosphere. I like the pillars on the other side and of course the view of the two elderly monks walking slowly down the corridor. It's a nice composition with a fine mild light and pleasant colours.
    Best regards,

    Hello Christiane,
    It's a well known view but the image is very original. The footballs buried in the green grass make the photo quite original and nicely colourful. It's a kind of artistic installation in a place I hadn't expected to find it. The photo is crystal clear and the colours are very nicely saturated.
