    Hello dear Ali,
    a lovely portrait of a serious little girl who stopped her play for a moment to pose for you. I like that you placed her off centre and that the blurry backdrop makes her stand out so vividly. You captured very fine natural tones and textures as well as a lovely play of light and breeze in her hair. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a good night,

    Hello dear Takero,
    you captured another lovely smile and the delighted expression of a dancer who is really enjoying her performance. I like very much how you isolated this fleeting scene so sharply and vividly. The sense of movement and the colours are superb, the play of sharpness and blurriness fascinating. Congratulations and thank you! Autumn has arrived in Greece too, maybe a little earlier than we expected. We are optimistic though, and hope for sunnier and clearer weather next week...:)
    All the best, have a great day,

    Hola Pili,
    this is a beautiful picture, an intriguing abstract interpretation. It looks so delightful and festive too. Your idea to frame it tightly and reverse it was brilliant, the ripples and the wiggles make a fascinating effect. I also love how you worked with the light and the intensity of the colours. You achieved a very fine result. Congratulations and thank you!
    I wish all the best for an enjoyable and creative photographic career now that you retired!

    Hello Robert,
    Whatever that scratching could mean, this is a nicely observed and very well composed photo. The couple have framed themselves in a delightful way, the dark interior of the room make them almost pop out of the picture, and the Italian colors at the top are a nice detail. I like this photo a lot. It's so well done.
    Best regards,
    Gert

    Ciao cara Lisa,
    mi piace molto come il fruttivendolo posa sorridente ed amichevole con le sue frutta. Vende cose deliziose e sicuramente ne e' fiero. Hai creato una composizione superba nel quadro verticale, c' e' grande profondita', tutto e' posizionato elegantemente e non c' e' niente di superfluo. Mi piace molto come il sorriso ed i colori brillanti nel primo piano sono contrastati dalle ombre e le tonalita' scure. Chiarezza ed illuminazione sono gestite ottimamente. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buona giornata,
    Ourania

    Ciao Angel
    bella torre bianca, impreziosita dell'orologio.
    Molto simpatica la presenza del nido con le cicogne e con il segnalatore di vento con la stilizzazione di questo uccello.
    Il cielo blu è perfetto per coronare questa costruzione.

    Hello Satya,
    this is a swordfish, it's found in the Aegean Sea too. It's very tasty and served at most seaside restaurants all over Greece. When a fishing boat brings it to a harbour, people usually gather to look and ask the fisherman for details. Strange how it ended up abandoned on this crowded beach. You captured an interesting scene with the boys posing and other people walking around them. There's great depth and the homogeneous reflection of the sky creates a graphical impression. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Hello Malgo,
    this is an extraordinary urban setting, the architecture and colours of the buildings are irresistible. Your picture has inviting depth and very attractive details, makes the viewer wish to wander into the scenery. You used the light wonderfully, the sunlit facades have beautiful, rich colours and stand out superbly as they are contrasted by the cloudy sky and the shady foreground. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hello Gert,
    I like very much how the lady's posture contrasts the very neat setting. An interesting daily life scene, an unusual habit and a fine composition to present them. Anyone who sits in front of the shop's window is sure to get some attention, the lady obviously didn't mind being inspected along with the clothes' display and didn't mind being photographed either. I like her attitude, the play of colours and the graphic contribution of words and signs:) They are such an integral part of urban life and you use them so well in your compositions. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hello Andre,
    their legs and feet have a very fine rhythm, they look so confident and perfectly coordinated that they could make a superb separate composition, in my opinion. I like the tight vertical frame that accentuates their closeness and how they have isolated themselves from the crowd through their contact and dance. Your work with the monochrome is excellent too. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Hello Aleksander,
    a very intriguing setting, you framed your picture very aptly, creating depth and including several sides of the mine, even a bit of its ceiling. There are interesting, contrasting textures and you handled the artificial lighting expertly, capturing lovely touches of light and colour all over the frame and rendering the atmosphere attractive. I also like the play with reflection and transparency on the glassy surface. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Gert,
    I was intriuged what the sign "Keskuskatu centralgatan" means and where it is, found simply a translation that says "Central main street". Than looked up the web for the "Marimeko" store - and two point conjoined on the map. Some stuff I do for a hobby to find locations on new places, for me, at least.
    Fine moment taken, interesting and colorful.
    Good evening,

    Bonjour Denis,
    this is a marvelous picture, very well framed with the dark tip of the boat and the ropes standing out in the warmly coloured environment of the harbour. I appreciate your consideration to include the whole of the number and to give dynamism to the boat. The two little anchors contribute their own rhythmical pattern. Your work with reflections and the wall is remarkable. I like so much the smooth way in which the solid stone wall is "liquidated" and transformed into the graphical reflections of the waterfront architecture. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,
    Ourania
