    Hello Chris,
    Indeed, two of each! This picture has a lovely flow to it with the two pairs in good positions. The old wall with some peeling red and black paint also seems to be important for the success of this image. Very sharp with lovely exposure and colours.
    Kind Regards, Ann

    Hi Gert,
    The colours may not be correct but it is the composition that matters here. It is a very good record of village life and so nice to see that the group were relaxed and willing to have their photo taken. A very enjoyable picture.
    Kind Regards, Ann

    Hello Serghei,
    The composition is very strong with the train and the crossing barrier. A good red theme, and very sharp and well photographed.

    Hello Silvio,
    I like the clarity in this shot. The blue sky and white snow are very appealing. There is lovely detail also in the FG. A beautiful place - TFS.

    Hello, Gert,
    Yes, I see the TE has got some problems today.

    Another another amazing report from the heart of Africa. But how did you recognize what they prefer for dinner? Some people could be happy to meet fresh white delicacy ;) Anyway, this is very interesting and informative publication.
    Best wishes,

    Wow! Great shot, Stephen,
    I like this king size of the photo, impressive architecture with the old European traditions reminds me some photos of our Canadian friends.
    These small cars look so amazing near this Cathedral.

    Zdravo, Sasha,

    Garlic - yes, onion - no ;) Good example of minimalist composition, simple but interesting photo, very nice golden hue, good graphic.
    Have a great weekend!

    Hallo, again,

    another good reminder of my visit of Austria. And I can say the same words, so we were in Schloss Schönbrunn in the winter time, and I have mostly b&w photos from this picturesque place.

    Hallo, Wolfgang,
    I do remember this dragon. But we were there in January and it was without a fountain. Thanks for so amazing memories. Fine close up, it could be better with the blue sky on the background, right?
    We have very warm days and a lot of the sun. I hope the spring is coming soon.

    Hello Satya

    I like the square format and the symmetry of the 2 tall cathedral spires. The hollowed out tops in a coronet style resemble Greek Churches I have seen. The red flowers at top left contrast well against the blue sky. The trees either side frame the scene well and add layering and graphic elements too. Tfs.

    Wow! Just a riot of the colors!
    Excellent photo, Noel,
    Is there an airport on the background? These white lines remind me a blast. But I really like so peaceful summer view, good saturation, I wish you more sunny days in the summer.

    Have a nice weekend!

    Hello Ana, my TE gallery neighbor today

    The shaggy haired donkey at right animates the shot and adds interest to the mans arm leading it. I like the repetition of the circular patterns and shapes in the masks and the Y shaped stick he is holding. The opposing vertical diagonals in the centre add dynamism. Tfs.

    Hello Frank,

    a superb sunset shot with subtle warm cold color contrasts between the orange and blue colors in the sky. The diagonal catwalk adds strong lead in lines and perspective. Excellent sharpness and the chimney stack and smoke or steam top left add interest. The square yellow door and the yellow illumination at right contrast well against the grey blue clouds in the bg top left. Tfs.

    Hi, Russ,
    Now I have see the shell sculpture, but this thumbnail si very attractive but I did not recognize this subject. Good PoV, I like your idea to place the tower on the foreground for some balance.

    Hello Pierre,

    Missed this one. Well composed using the principle of three with the 3 stained glass windows. A good exposure too. I all too often get an overexposed window but the exposure here is quite good. Excellent color and saturation with superb sharpness. Nice repetition of the fg candles. Tfs.

    Privet, Roland,
    I have never been in Naples. Thanks for this presentation of the Piazza del Plebiscito, as the historic center of the city. Fine details of the buildings, marvelous colors.

    Hi Roland

    I do not recall this part of Naples. I made a beeline for the museum and the lookout up on the hill. Anyway good sharpness and the dome shaped cathedral with the cross atop it makes a great focal point. The fg people add scale and animate the scene. Nice repetition of the curved colonnaded structure, resembling the Vatican a bit, in Roma. Tfs.

    Merhaba Mesut, my TE gallery neighbor today.

    Looks a bit chilly. I like the minimalist colors of just blue and white with a few shades of black thrown in too. Good sharpness and the diagonal lines of the ice and water add dynamism. Punchy light contrasts and excellent textural details in the fg snow or ice. Tfs.

    Hello Stephen

    The warm yellow red tones of the twin cathedral spires contrast superbly against the blue sky. Good sharpness and smart choice of a vertical frame to stress the height. Plenty of breathing space in the composition and the fg parked cars add scale. Tfs.
