    Hello Erling,
    Never been in Bergen but I know that it played an important role during WW II. Very nice warm late afternoon light on the fassades of those old wooden houses and perfect layout.

    Hello Wolfgang,
    this is a well composed picture, focusing on the elegant entrance of the museum and offering us a straightforward and interesting presentation of it. You cropped the scene very effectively and there is fine balance, involving all the elements included in the frame. The statues are impressive and introduce a sense of drama but the general mood is really peaceful. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonjour Jean,
    this is a very delightful scene, I like the elegant dynamism of your composition and the way the scenery stretches within the panoramic frame. The sense of depth is amazing and the whole of the background is interesting too. The sails are playful, graphic elements and brighten the moody day. I also like the fine blue glow of the reflected sky. Congratulations and thank you!

    Καλησπέρα Κωνσταντίνε,
    πολύ ευχάριστη σκηνή που αμέσως μας μεταφέρει στην περίοδο των καλοκαιρινών διακοπών και στην ατμόσφαιρα του ταξιδιού στο Αιγαίο. Μου αρέσει πολύ ο τρόπος που εξισορρόπησες τη σύνθεσή σου και ανέδειξες το δυναμισμό της σκηνής. Είναι ευχάριστο και ενδιαφέρον να παρατηρεί κανείς τους συνταξιδιώτες, κάτι που κάνουμε ούτως ή άλλως στο καράβι:) Το φως και τα χρώματα είναι απολαυστικά. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
    Να είσαι καλά, καλό Σαββατοκύριακο,

    Hello Stephen,
    I like very much the symmetry and perspective of your composition, the way you relied on the graphics of the setting and made the most of them. There are several sets of patterns to attract our interest and you managed to render the busy view neat and reawarding. The people add movement and vividness, the diffused light makes the atmosphere peaceful and pleasant. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello dear Mesut,
    the landscape is magnificent, it looks remote, deserted and timeless and it is great to see how it rises towards the top of the frame. What I enjoy the most is the captivating play of light and shadow that reveals so much texture. It creates a dramatic effect too and renders the atmosphere fascinating. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Paja,
    this picture is very well composed and captured with wonderful light that brought out rich textures and attractive colours. I like the dominant role of the broken window in the tight vertical frame, it is very interesting to have a vague glimpse of the interior as well as a reflection on the dusty window pane. The shadows add a sense of drama, your own shadow features a personal involvement that adds to the story. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello John,
    this is a very delightful picture due both to the scenery and the fine sunshine. I like how you placed the iconic windmill in the right side of the frame and in the distant background. It stands out against the smooth blue sky and there is ample space left in the frame for a wonderful description of the surrounding scenery. The colours look beautiful and vivid in the sunshine. The different point of view you included in the workshop is very enjoyable too. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Ray,
    some architectural and artistic details are missing but the shape of the building is very attractive, the reflection is fascinating and the mood of the scene very delightful. I like very much the way you played with symmetry and the totally different versions of the same subject. The reflection is so vibrant and attractive and offers a stunning, contrasting view of the elegant structure that must have a very imposing presence in the park. Congratulations and thank you!

    Καλησπέρα Δάνο,
    τι όμορφη, ατμοσφαιρική εικόνα! Εξαιρετική η σύνθεση σε ένα πλήρες κάθετο κάδρο, πολύ ελκυστική η πληθώρα των μοτίβων που δημιούργησε η Φύση σε αυτή τη γωνιά της λίμνης. Μου αρέσει πάρα πολύ η χρωματική αρμονία και το πέρασμα της ομίχλης ανάμεσα στα κλαδιά. Οι αντανακλάσεις ενισχύουν τη μαγεία του σκηνικού. Μια εικόνα υπέροχη, υποβλητική και γεμάτη χάρη. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!

    Hello Jean,
    I like very much the way you arranged this captivating scenery in a panoramic composition, the graphic layout is elegant and it is amazing how deep and clear the view is and how many details we have the opportunity to discover in it. The snowy part is bright and attractive but the subtle colour palette manages to make a decisive impact as well. I also enjoy the play of scale and the timelessness. Congratulations and thank you!

    a very attractive presentation of this old lighthouse, you found an exquisite perspective and I like very much the way it is placed between the ruined building and the vast seascape. The sky is a magnificent backdrop that adds to the intriguing atmosphere too. You achieved superb definition all over and the combination of colours creates a pleasant and coherent image.

    you observed and captured a very fine scene from a major street in Barcelona, I like very much how you narrowed your attention to this lovely scene, an intimate and delightful "detail" in the wide urban setting. The kids are lovely, individual and interesting. The grand image behind them gives the effect of great depth and is interesting to explore. Such a big and delightful crowd.

    Hello Ana,
    how interesting and captivating these pagan characters look, their animal-like, expressionless faces are absolutely fascinating. The allure is multiplied in this tight composition, where we see five of them together. The interaction with the animal in the foreground is intriguing, it is like we are having a glimpse into a very mysterious world. I also love the full backdrop, the sharpness and the moody colours. The mild light brightening the masks is so effective. Congratulations and thank you!
