    Hello Gert,

    The battle of Aleppo is a disgrace to humanity.
    Also Dresden in Germany 1945, 13 op 14 februari was a big disgrace to humanity, but nobody has something learned.
    I have never knew a War without victims, but the question why!
    Power, money and women, and faith, the downfall of humanity
    Sorry my firend that I write emotionally.

    Your picture is very nice with a big city without War.
    An excellent presentation.
    Very well done, TFS.

    Have a nice weekend,
    John.

    Bonjour Paul,

    J'aime beaucoup la luminosité dans cette image et l'animation sur cette petite place. La rue apporte un bon point de fuite.

    Hello Serghei,
    Nobody could complain of a lack of colours in this photo. This kind of short boat trip seems like a nice change from lazing on the beach. It's not my dream of a holiday but it should be great for families. In any case it's a photo to cheer northerners up in the dark winter. I wish you a nice journey to Cyprus.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Pavle,
    You show us thee interesting photos of the noble art of making your own brandy at home. It is a fine old handicraft, but if Serbia is ever admitted to the EU it will probably no longer be permitted. Would membership be worth that price? Maybe these photos will be recordings of the past, just like your photos of abandoned houses.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Takero,
    This is a very eye-catching and attractive photo of strong colours, expressive gestures, beautiful details and an excited atmosphere. The dark night provides a perfect surrounding to the highly illuminated festival float.

    You made a great composition of the sky seen through the square opening above the elegant pillars. There are fine shapes, nice light and an eye-catching blue area. Very well done,

    Hello Gert, I haven't been to Aleppo but the places I saw in 2010 also do not exist anymore. Probably you saw pictures like here. I still remember the people from Damascus or Bosra. How they live now?
    Today was the 80th month-versary of Smolensk catastrophe. Deputy Speaker of the Sejm Joachim Brudzinski, commenting on the demonstration of Polish Citizens, said that if they want to prevent the prayer for the dead, it is for him "something so incomprehensible, and even barbaric. "
    Have a nice weekend

    You show us another beautifully captured sunset with very attractive colours. You have realized well that the people in the foreground contribute to the good atmosphere just as much as the pink and orange sky.

    Hello Ryszard,
    This is an excellent composition. The perfect red and blue diagonal ends in a perfect red and blue horizontal line. The small boy is perfectly placed all alone in the sandy area. You spotted him well and used this photo opportunity nicely.

    Hello Bülent,
    This photo nicely combines culture (the ruin and the note) with daily life and nature. The teacher is perfectly dressed for a color photo and is well placed near the upper corner, which makes him part of an invisible diagonal going to the girls' backpacks in the opposing lower corner. There is a fine balance of green tones and also the rusty brown tones of the bricks and the trees to the right.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Jean,
    I remember this interesting temple from a visit 40 years ago. Maybe there are more beautiful flowers in front of it now, otherwise I wouldn't think anything has changed. It's a remarkably colourful and attractive composition with a perfect, crowded and bright foreground.

    Hello Ourania,
    I must admire your talent for spotting interesting compositions almost anywhere. This is of course a photo of the "nothing special" category (that's a compliment), but the abandoned café and the weak light create a very strong out-of-season atmosphere. Above all this photo has remarkably well matching tones of grey and blue, which gives it a fairly harmonious character in spite of the emptiness and the obviously chilly air.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hi Ken
    Very impressive view that takes in a lot more than first glance would indicate. The eye is drawn to the stone but there is so much more in the background, all presented on a stunning blue sky. The gold looks great against it

    Hello Gert,
    Arriving from Turkey Aleppo was my first introduction to Syria and immediately one of the most beautiful and friendly experiences in the Middle East.
    I read somewhere that also the Citadel is completely destroyed but I'm not sure if this is correct.
    The last days the human suffering there knows an unprecedented peak. Conquering land and getting it under his influence seems more important than human lives. The traditional superpowers at the top.
    I'm really sorry but how realistic are wishes for improvement ... ?
    Best regards, Paul

    Hello Christiane,
    This saddle is a beautiful piece of handicraft and it looks well polished by being used for a long time. It's an interesting photo, quite different from what is usually shown on TE, and the workshops are very nice too, especially the one of the horse.
    Kind regards,

    Perhaps it's because I don't see them much in Ireland but I find balconies a fascinating architectural feature. Your chosen angle, the light and colors here are all superb. Very nice shot

    A fine example of construction that it sympathetic to its surroundings, and a rather mysterious little building for it too. Well managed light too which I'm guessing would not have been easy here

    Hello Philippe,
    These capitals have been quite well kept for hundreds of years, so we can still admire the beautiful details created by ancient masters. It's a fine close look accompanied by an interesting and informative note.
