    Hello Luciano,
    It's a nice photo but this time I rather prefer the WS. The cat and the sculpture look good together but the wall and the signs don't add much further, really.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Mariusz,
    If you had been like some of your compatriots on this site you would have slept in your car outside the palace to catch the perfect light and reflections ;-). Maybe this castle is so relatively little known because everyone is embarrassed to talk about it? How could it get such a name?
    Apart from that, this is a very good photo in an appealing square shape. What we see of the building is truly impressive, it's a very well exposed photo and the dark clouds seem to underscore the good light and intense colours of the façade and towers.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Angel,
    The nice hills with white buildings along the ridges were captured at the time of the day when the light was the most favourable. The warm and intense tones are beautiful and the cloud to the left is very pretty. I can't believe this was March. You would never see such colours and light at that time of the year in northern Europe. The photo has a wonderful clarity and sharpness.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Craig,
    From this angle it's hard to tell what the red sculpture is supposed to mean, but it's a very elegant composition of interesting red shapes on a black background. It's not necessary to always "understand" a work of art (I'm referring to this photo) as long as you like what you see and your imagination is inspired. (I pretend I didn't see the earlier photo.)
    Best regards,
    Gert

    Hej Erling,
    Det går knappast att ta en bild av ett vikingaskepp på ett enklare vis, och knappast snyggare heller. Det är en enormt slagkraftig bild av brunt mot blått som framhäver skeppets otroligt vackra utformning. Du har beskurit bilden väldigt snyggt också. Kan inte Bergen be att få låna originalet till nästa 17 maj? ;-)
    Hälsningar,
    Gert

    Hi Angel
    That cloud is shaped like a helicopter :) the one cloud is a really nice part of your photo, the whole scene feels fresh and wide and open and the cloud occupies just the right amount of space to add nice interest in the sky. Nicely caught!

    Hi Robert
    The light is indeed really nice and that blue sky is a great way to present this piece of engineering. The size of the bridge is emphasised well in how all of the buildings of the city are below is road. Nicely done

    A great place for everybody to take photos it seems and no surprise. That little boat has great character. Is bright colours stand or so well on the sand and sea. Nice moment to catch

    Hi Dale
    That's a mighty and impressive building and I like very much how you bane as much of the photo to the square as the architecture. The man in the bench looks very relaxed and the kid on the bike brings great energy, a nice snippet of life in the square below the castle

    Hi Chris
    They are an impressive size and I also like how they frame the view, looking off to the mosque in the distance makers these minerets look huge. Great idea to use them in the photo like this

    Hi Lars
    White castles seem rather rare, I guess it's hard to keep them white. This castle looks very imposing over the land around it and the color makes it very striking. The purple bush below sets the white of really nicely. Cool place and photo

    Hi Stephen
    This is a great panorama shot of this square, no doubt a beating heart in the city. This wide open view allows an sense of scale too, if both the square itself and the fine buildings around it. Great light and sky too

    Hi Rob
    Very cool shot. Not the kind of boat we would expect to see here and the combination of the building and boat is great. Even better still to capture it under this fantastic light and sky. Very nice photo

    A kind of crystal clear on sharp color magic shot that I just cannot do, the blues and gold are so regal, it's like looking at a crown jewel. That one Tree is like a guardian standing over the town. It looks really cool

    Hi Abmdsudi
    A powerful title, an emotive image and an excellent note, a beautiful post to the site. I imagine many of can connect this man to our own lives and our own parents, I see every day the world changing and my dads world falling behind more and more. In this man's life we have gone from generally available radio as the ultimate technology to instant communication and knowledge sharing with anyone anywhere on earth. Hard to know though who use what is available more wisely. Having everything on demand leads to terrible apathy I think. This man didn't belong to that generation. Very cool and thought provoking shot

    Hello Aleksander,
    It's a beautiful church and you handled the light very well and captured the colours that look quite natural. But the ceremony is so far away that we don't really see the couple and the priest. I think you should have zoomed in on them a bit more and maybe taken a vertical photo, capturing more of the ceiling and less of the floor.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    A beautiful interior and all the more so for the occasion you captured, what an incredible place to get married. The bride in her flowing dress makes a great Central point, and you got great colours in the stained glass windows. Really nice photo
