    Hello Ray,
    a very effective composition in a vertical frame, that enhances depth and offers us a comprehensive and rewarding view of the scenery. I like very much the graduation of light and colours as well as the striking contrast of the coast in the distance. The textures are superb, gentle movement is conveyed and the sea plants look like sea monsters about to rise from the water. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Bonjour Didi,
    I think that the bad weather had also some nice treats for you, it helped you achieve lovely, moody tones in this photo and made the shadows look milder but very effective too. A fine, solid composition great perspective, sense of space and clarity. I like very much the textures, they look so natural and real. The workshop picture is a useful complement, the whole event must have been wonderful. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Hello dear Ali,
    I like the effect of the strong light and the reflections, they seem to convey motion and add vividness to this still and calm scenery. Poles and sticks display excellently defined silhouettes and look like an artistic installation. The blue tones have substance and are both attractive and soothing. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hello John,
    this is an elegant composition, its themes are very well balanced regarding proportions and interest. I like very much how the shadows spread in the foreground, pointing to the beautiful buildings. The people add movement and liveliness, they also enhance the sense of perspective and make the skating ring look more interesting. Light, colours and shadows have been managed very effectively, details are excellent. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Hello Stephen,
    this place is fantastic. It takes only a simple composition to describe the setting but it also takes great skill to show the colours and textures of rocks and sea under such strong light that doesn't hit the scenery directly. The shadows are well defined and exalt the natural sculptures. The colours are so vibrant and attractive. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Daniel,
    it's great how you made this frame look so rich and delightful with the green vegetation and the sky as its backdrop. Your composition is complete with the reflections, the colours are natural and very lovely, the textures are well rendered and make appealing contrasts. I also like the diffusion of the light and the sense that there's another deep scenery behind the vegetation. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonjour Nicou,
    I like very much the minimal and effective way in which you are presenting this scene. The frame is elegantly divided in two by a sweeping diagonal and the lady is well placed between the two parts, relating to both. The day was gloomy and there's no hint of blue in the sea. The tones you've captured though, are very fine, you controlled the luminosity of the sea and captured its movement superbly. Your picture is also characterized by a sense of intimacy. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Hello Les,
    this coast looks fascinating and threatening at the same time. I like very much the overwhelming dynamism you gave it and how this is enhanced by the sky as well. The textures are amazing, the atmospheric monochrome has given the scene exceptional fascination. I also like the 3D effect and the very narrow space left to the sea, making this area look even more inhospitable for ships. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Chris,
    this picture is lovely and fascinating. This area is very interesting and you have captured its unique character effectively. I like how the ruined city on the coast expands and is clearly visible underwater. You managed the light superbly, textures and colours are magnificent all over. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Paja,
    for having been the residence of an important historic figure and the richest man in Serbia, this residence looks particularly discreet. It shows signs of decay too, but they surely are under control, the surrounding area is neat and clean. I like very much the melancholic mood and the dark, natural colours. I also like that you kept the sign almost invisible. Congratulations and thank you!

    Καλησπέρα Δάνο,
    πολύ ενδιαφέρουσα σύνθεση με την εκκλησία να προβάλλει από ένα στενό άνοιγμα στο κέντρο του κάδρου, ανάμεσα σε πυκνή βλάστηση. Η σύνθεση αυτή ενισχύει το μυστήριο και τον ρομαντισμό της ατμόσφαιρας και δημιουργεί έναν ελκυστικό δυναμισμό. Πολύ ωραίες οι υφές και τα χρώματα, συνδύασες την αντανάκλαση με την ιδιαιτερότητα της λίμνης εξαιρετικά. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
    Να είσαι καλά, καλό απόγευμα,

    Hello Arnie,
    cute little fishing boats that offer the harbour colour, interest and character. A lovely picture with fine details and a comprehensive context. I especially like the transparency of the water in the foreground and the boat's shadow. The strong midday light has deprived the colours from some of their richness and vividness but they still are attractive. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Bonjour Serge,
    I like very much the long, sweeping perspective that works so effectively in the broad, vertical frame. An interesting view into this picturesque district, the buildings are very well defined, with clear details and textures, the uncertain light gives to the atmosphere a strange quality. The canal looks eerie and fascinating, you managed the transparency and the reflections superbly. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonjour Clodo,
    all three ways/photos are interesting but it seems that standing on the beach you created the richer and most fascinating composition. It's amazing how many subjects you were able to include, they fit in the frame superbly and their alternation and interaction are superb. Wonderful management of perspectives, light and colours. The poster shows a different interpretation and provides amusing contrast. Admirable work, congratulations and thank you!
