    Hello Gert,
    Bad weather at Midsommar, Sweden eliminated in the European football championship, no more Zlatan. Not the ideal start of the summer. And the TE-performance is again without any improvement. But also Sweden back in the UN Security councel and no Svexit, said Kristersson.
    And two points for this excellent daily life picture.

    Hello Silvio,
    I suppose the moderators were sick of all the complaints about the performance of TE and decides to show that they are the boss. And your excellent picture could show their knowledge of the TE-rules and their power. Not the rules but the arbitrary and random use of rules is disagreeable. I found out a few times in the past myself.
    The power of TE is the relation of its members and not the random use of the rules.
    So I vote for a return of your lovely workshop as main picture.

    Hello Angel,
    This looks to me a lovey beach waiting for the summer season. An attractive place for a beach vacation, if you do like that.
    The shadow in front makes the picture more vivid and gives some depth.
    Well done.

    Hello Ourania,
    Great picture of these boys in their dancer’s outfit playing “Boter, Kaas en Eieren” in Dutch (butter, cheese and eggs) I don’t know why. The start-player can always win if he starts in the center.

    Hello Serge,
    I hoped for a selfie with you, but this is of course also very attractive. A lovely scene with the square, the girl and the amazing sky and the wet tiles of the square. If I look at her hair I wonder if she has walked through the rain to prove that the weather was so bad.
    Excellent presentation.

    Fascinating observation of daily life.
    Your lovely picture accentuates one of the most important thing in modern life and shopping: the CAR.

    Hello Ryszard,
    Looking below.
    Original idea to take a picture from this POV. You have to look twice to recognize the scene.
    The lovely result is a rather abstract composition. I like it.

    Hello Burak,
    Didn’t you have a picture with a large Icelandic flag. They deserve it after yesterday with the elimination of England. It is a little comfort for the Dutch, now it seems the we were eliminated in the qualification by the future European champion. (Finale: Iceland – Belgium 2-1)

    Hello Malgo,
    Beautiful and colorful aerial photography. Often are this kind of pictures much more grey-blue.
    A mountain of 345 meters is very high for the Dutch. Our highest hill is only 323 meter and that is on the border with Belgium and Germany.

    Hello John,
    This is a living statue of high quality so I’m glad you took this picture with the same high quality.
    I think this performer is a likely candidate for the first prize in the competition “Living Statue of the year”. No tricks with floating creatures, but just excellent performance.

    Bonjour Philippe,
    Beautiful moody picture with a strong vertical composition.
    It is fascinating to see the composition of the tree-trucks and the green of the leaves and the grass. The water leads us to the house in the distance.

    Hello Bev,
    Yes, you do have guys who tried to buy their own laws and the succeed sometimes with that.
    But this beautiful reflection he could take away from you. I suppose this is also a sneaky way to place a picture with the other TE-members on it. Right you are.

    I don't like this exaggerate cars, but of course you deserve 10 points, but I can give you only 2 on TE. Sorry for the inconvenience

    Hello Claude,
    Let me try to give you (and myself) some hope. It is politics, you know. The politicians are masters in telling the truth a little bit different of what we think they mean.
    This Brexit can be the start of something big. At last an attempt to build a Europe of the Europeans and not only of the banks. And we all will have a new referendum for a new Europe. (at least I hope so)
