    Hello Erhan,
    This is a fine composition. The beautiful villa is very nicely situated by the lake on the edge of the thick forest beneath the mountains covered by the mist. It looks lonely and quiet and you have captured this well with excellent colours and clarity.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Gildas,
    This is a photo of beautiful simplicity. I love the bright colours beside the grey wall and I appreciate the care shown by the owner of the house. The good light and excellent sharpness have captured the texture of the stones very nicely.

    Hello Swapan,
    I had never heard of this temple complex. On the other hand the Indian cultural heritage is so immense that probably nobody knows about everything. The wide curve of small temples and the parallell line of yellow flowers are very beautiful and impressive and the other line of temples across the lawn are equally interesting, It must be a great experience to visit this complex. You have taken a fine photo with good colours and excellent clarity.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Pavle,
    This lake sounds like a paradise for an eager fisherman like you. For everyone the natural beauty of the surroundings and the colours of the sunset will make a visit worthwhile. This is a well taken photo with fine tones among the rflections in the water.

    Hallo Lars,
    Ik herinner me dat de Estse voorbijgangers op straat niet zo gelukkig waren toen ik enthousiast foto's nam van de Russische kathedraal van Alexander Nevski. Ja, dergelijke gevoeligheden bestaan er in vele landen.
    Deze foto toont ons niet enkel de skyline van Tallinn maar tevens een prachtig zicht op de oude binnenstad met zijn rode daken en gekleurde gevels.
    Stel je voor dat je iedere toren op deze foto mocht beklimmen om overal van het uitzicht te gaan genieten.
    Vele groeten, Paul

    Hello Gosia,
    A beautiful architecture shot and a pretty combination of the dark ceiling beams at right angles to the pure lines of the columns.
    The latter are nicely reflected on the floor.

    Hello Krzysztof,
    The facades of the buildings are a real colour feast!
    Their warm tones make a nice and strong contrast with the bluish overcast sky.

    Hello Krzysztof,
    Another fine photo of the wet street in Gdansk.The details are lovely and the colours are fantastic. There are some strange shadow around the legs of people, and the plastic bags the nearest man is carrying. They seem strange, considering this was taken at 1/200 seconds.

    Hi Will
    The man does add a lot to the scene, bst to be honest, even without him I would find this shot irresistible. The choppy water. The incredible sky and a great idea in black and white would alone be beautiful. I like that there appears to be a huge eye one the clouds above the man and seemingly looking right at him! The sky over the far mountains looks very angry and very photogenic, its like looking at A scene that Saurons tower would fit perfectly in.
    Cheers

    Hi Kasia
    Wow. An honour to view this image, a sign of pure skill in timing, light management and composition. As mentioned above, it is like a scene from a dream, and the mighty stag is like a magical creature. Really impressive, thanks for sharing this.

    Hi Brian
    Love this, I really don't think you can beat a good castle and surely they do not come much more impressive than this. As ever, you chose the perfect place to shoot from, taking in the entire massive complex while retaining excellent details and textures in the brickwork.
    I have to say, I really like the light in this and how it graduate from bottom to top, makes the facade more interesting. I can see a great wizard living happily in this place,

    Considering how popular the subject of castles are here, I am really surprised this shot does not have a lot more views and comments.

    Cheers from Ireland.

    Hello Serghei
    The picture has a pretty graphical effect.
    Beautiful textures of the wood.
    Very interesting to see how smal but high this wooden church is on your picture in the workshop. Nicely framed with the branches.

    Hi Brian
    I have been coming to like more and more lately the high contrast black and white images, I I've a real appreciation for this, the gentle curve of the buildings has created some magical shadow effects while the decorative lamps are like inky black spies from the dark sky breaking into the scene, perfect vantage point for the shot too, class.

    Hi JJ
    These ribbons, or scarves of color (I like your word more!) look brilliant, and would do so in any scene but even more so when presented against this beautiful architectural marvel. The cathedral rises very majestically above the land, and you had a great idea to include the boats in the harbour for brilliant extra interests.
    Thanks as always
