    Hello Gerrit,
    This reminds me a bit of Waikiki as seen from the mountains. Very pretty scenery competently photographed. The light from the shallow sun is gorgeous.

    Hello Philippe,
    It is a beautiful building among immaculately kept lawns and well-manicured trees. I wonder how it would feel to live in such a palatial building, a bit like living in a hotel, perhaps?

    Hello Jean,
    I love these old fashioned boats. Alas, all the boats one sees in the US are fiberglass speed boats. Excellent composition with the light house in the background.

    Bonsoir Clodo,
    fine observation and great tight composition, the foreground scene seems to second the mood of autumn with its colours. Autumn and daily life go on around the ladies fixing the scenography. I wish people would look around them more carefully and appreciate such unexpected moments of fun. The light and the colours have a wonderful warmth, if only people took a step out of the shade. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a good night,

    Hello Burak,
    the subtle lavender tones of that cold evening in Helsinki set a wonderful, calm and a little melancholic atmosphere. I like very much how you filled the frame with the silhouetted trunks and branches, still offering a clear view of the buildings. The contrast created by the warm lights is magnificent. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a good night,

    Hello dear Takero,
    a wonderful portrait in action and great interaction between model and viewer. The scene in the background offers interesting context and, although the gentleman belongs to the same scene, he is wonderfully isolated for the sake of the viewer. You captured superb, vivid, delightful colours, a vibrant scene with joyful atmosphere. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Hello dear Mesut,
    I like very much this scene too. You managed to render the evening colours and atmosphere very effectively while the setting and your protagonist is very well defined too. The foreground looks dynamic and the distant scenery is well placed for balance and depth. I also like the texture of the sea and the play of light on it. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Jason,
    a lovely welcoming surprise for you on your first night in Moscow, great that you were able to capture the exciting fireworks and share them with us too. The power lines are a minor distraction in this lovely scene. The fireworks look like a bunch of graphical, luminous flowers but, apart from them, you've captured an interesting and inviting night cityscape too. This wasn't a vantage point chosen especially for the fireworks but you readily made the most of it, your composition and settings were just right. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,
    Ourania

    PS Omitting the "Bolshoi Theatre" and the "Red Square", I could use your whole paragraph for one of my pictures from last summer. I managed to capture the last firework in a strikingly distant setting -by the sea, of course:)

    Hello Daniel,
    what an original and attractive image, the concept is so creative and you managed to execute it most effectively. You chose a fine perspective and shot with great timing. The principal elements are superbly placed in the frame. A real urban view with bold graphical character. The definition you achieved on details and colours under this lighting challenge is stunning. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonjour Serge,
    a very lovely boat with long and interesting history. It is preserved with great care and respect. It's a little sad it's locked ashore now but its statue as a museum is a due honour. Your presentation is effective and delightful. You managed the light very well and he ship's colours are brilliant. It surely stands out in its surroundings. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello dear Ali,
    this is a small but elegant shrine which surely has a special place in the neighbourhood. I like the colourful addition of the decoration that has given a delightful aspect to the austere setting. The colours of the flags make attractive contrasts. The sharpness is very good and the fine touches of the warm light so agreeable. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Gert,
    marvellous title:) You have created great dynamism and balance with your composition and made wonderful use of the space available in the frame. The scene is so much more that that though. It's utterly fascinating and I wonder if scenes like this still occur in the streets of Old Delhi today. If so, they probably don't look and feel the same, this looks so naïve and authentic. I like the sense of mystery and the theatricality of this scene. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Noel,
    I like very much the point of view you found for this composition, how the perspectives attract us along the façade and the side and how the elegantly the towers are distributed above the building. The frame has been adjusted to the building superbly, sharpness is stunning and the dynamism of the composition has enhanced the fascination of the details and the impact of the repetitive patterns. The colours have created a dramatic atmosphere. Congratulations and thank you!

    this composition is superb, your work in cropping and lighting the interior architectural view is very effective. There's a fine, intricate play of perspectives and great sense of depth. The light and colour graduation makes a wonderful effect. Congratulations and thank you!
