    Hello Carlo,
    This is the special kind of nothing special that I like. It is a great combination of two lovely girls on the wall and a nice woman in the street. They may all be Italian but with their roots somewhere else. The world is changing and we shouldn't be so afraid of that. You spotted this well and timed the photo perfectly.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Angel,
    This photo fits the "daily life" category well even though I doubt these ladies are dressed like this on a daily basis. They provide wonderful splashes of colours and probably attracted many photographers.

    Hello Paul,
    These palms are really remarkable, and at the first quick sight I thought this looked like a large wind energy park. They look amazing and their tall vertical features combined with the many diagonals of the hillsides have created a remarkably dynamic composition, to which the many tones of green contribute well.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Piotr,
    This castle is usually seen from closer, but I like this fairly distant view where we also see so much of the water with the perfect reflections and the sky, which on this day happened to look remarkably nice.

    Hello György,
    These underground passages seem to be a typical feature of "eastern Europe". In my own country I would be reluctant to use them late in the evenings, not knowing who could be waiting for me down there, but in the former Socialist block they are usually filled with small shops and actually quite cosy. You have captured that quite well in this underground street-shot. I still prefer regular overground zebra crossings with light-signals.
    Best wishes,
    Gert

    Hello John,
    This is an interesting and fine boat but what I really like in this photo is the fine balance between the green tones of the trees and grass and the darker tones of the boat, the sky and the water. There is not a wide range of colours but the few are well harmonized and pleasantly mild. It is also a nice composition of the boat beside the narrow path lined with trees.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Sergio,
    Spectacularly built high on a rock and yet in the centre of Edinburgh.
    Beautiful view upwards.
    The rather dark castle is clear and sharp presented against the beautiful sky.

    Hello Chris,
    We have that little peeing boy in Brussels but Prague apparently has its peeing adults.
    Now one more place with grandparents :)
    I see that someone (or perhaps a dog) has peed next to the fountain.

    Hello Kari,
    The upper floors of the Namaste-shop look very beautiful. But I've never seen anything like that in India :)
    This place certainly attracts a lot of people.
    Beautiful presentation.

    Hello Piotr,
    WOW! What a wonderful postcard of Trakai!
    The red towers and roofs of the castle look so beautiful on this overall blue picture.
    Very nice with the ripples on the water on the foreground and with the distorted reflections of the castle.
    Most of all I like those clouds that are applied in the sky with gentle brush strokes.
    Best regards, Paul

    Hola Sergio Sovereigns, obsessed by their fortune, are caracterized as always having "the head in the clouds"; so no wonder why this castle is set so high on the fortress! Backlight confers some kind of a frightening mood to the noble building. Hasta luego.

    Hello Bülent,
    I think these steps run parallel to an equally steep street, without steps, that I have walked many times. The topography is no doubt one of many reasons for Istanbul's great charm, even though some areas can be tough for those who are no longer very young. In this photo the two ladies of course play major roles but the black railings also make a fine and slightly uneven pattern along the staircase.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
