    Hello Roland,
    I like this eye-catching and quite original composition. There are some very nice lines and shapes here, as well as fine tones of blue and white, and the flags add a lot of bright colours. Most of all I like the silhouette of the sailor pulling a wire. This was well seen and nicely cropped.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Lisa,
    How very different this is from the photos I took with Malgo in Warsaw recently :-). With alldue respect for Warsaw this is a lot more beautiful. The dark cloud covers the rising sun just enough to enhance the rays. The golden tones of the entire view are fabulous and the waves look like they're rolling quite gently towards the beach. You captured a fine atmosphere.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Rosemary,
    What a nice coincidence. In 1984 I met and interviewed Mongane Wally Serote, in Botswana as far as I remember (or could it have been Zimbabwe?). I don't remember if that story was ever published, and i don't remember much what he said 30 years ago. Still it's very nice to meet him again through your note. As for the photo it shows again the stunning scenery and strong colours of Namibia. Seeing this cracked mud and the vast dunes it's hard to imagine there actually is a lot of life found here for those who know how to look for it.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Serge,
    The church is very pretty and the green surroundings are beautiful. The low clouds, partly covering the hillside in the background, create a fine atmosphere. Although this was not a sunny day the light is very good and the colours have turned out very pleasantly.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Gosia,
    A very nice photo for your jubilee. My congratulations. This is an exquisite blue hour photo with fantastic reflections. You make this place look very stylish, and I guess it is. Decades ago Mallorca was mainly known for large groups of noisy and drunken Scandinavian, German and British holiday-makers on cheap package tours. I think the image of the island has changed considerably in recent years.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Malgo,

    Although the style of architecture is different, this makes me think of a couple of old towns in Albania. The same kind of narrow streets, steep hills and mountans in the background. You should go there :-). It was good for you to include so much of the white wall. Sometimes we get nice surprises when we see our photos at full size.

    Regarding points, whether we like them or not, I find it natural to enjoy some reasonable feedback to my photos. What fun is there to post a photo you like and see it disappearing into a black hole? But to receive points you have to give, we all know that. I don't understand those who keep uploading photos but never really participate by showing an interest in others' pictures.

    And you know, you get many more points than I, you just spread them on seven photos a week, compared to my maximum two. :-).

    Have a nice weekend. I suppose Warsaw is as burning hot as Stockholm. 30 C or more the whole week. Too hot for sightseeing. I'm glad I already know the city :-).

    Hello Ourania,
    This was a very interesting experiment and I must say it was very successful. Whatever your intention was, apart from not overexposing the bright foreground, you managed in my opinion to create what seems like two pictures in one. In fact, I almost get the impression that this shows the interior of a very well lit restaurant where the wall is covered with a huge photo of the small port. The differences of light are so great that the two parts almost don't seem to belong together. Realizing the very difficult conditions here you did very well to bring out such fine details. That kind of treatment could easily have caused a lot of noise, but I had to enlarge this very much to detect any traces at all of it.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Costantino,
    A very pleasant photo of this less than crowded beach. The lonely man is well placed off centre, turned towards the centre, and his red bathing-trunks make him even more obvious as the only person on the beach (I see there are some more people under a tree). I love the light and colours and the very relaxed and quiet atmosphere.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Ryszard,
    An excellent composition with lots of fine elements. The tiled floor is eye-catching and leads me straight up to the walls with the photos. The bored little girl, playing for herself, is charming and her red dress makes her impossible to ignore. The light is good and everything is in the right place.
