    Hi Federico,
    I didn't know some rhododendrons grow so big, nothing like that in Europe. Really beautiful trees. Good contrasty backlit shot. And there's even some snow on the mountain top.

    Hi Alfred,
    It is a famous place and bathers have been shown on many TV shows. But her you show close group portrait right which shows the tradition of bathing well. Matching all brown colourscape looks good.

    Hi Serghei,
    You have shown as many snowy pictures but I certainly didn't expect one from springtime Japan. So even though this is B&W I expect that's snow on the tree, not cherry blossoms!
    You know sometimes it's very nice to walk around on such a weather, if you are well clothed.

    Hi Manuel,
    To me this remind more of a big pile of beer cases. Sometimes you see those on brewery yards and such places.
    Architecture is quite impressive and you present it well with close and wide angle.

    Hi Denis,
    Lovely light. Yuor darkish exposure and wet looking clouds give good contrasty result. You have good focus on the little boats on the foreground. This doesn't at all have a feeling of a major tourist island.

    Hej Gert,
    One really cool portrait! He is so well lit agains the background in shade. Statue is quite stylish and rough brick walls so the local architecture well.
    Makes me wonder how much this corner has changed during the last decades.

    Hi Constantino,
    Absolutely beautiful view from a ferry to the tightly built hilly shore. Architecture over there is colourful, especially the tall building with round corner catches attention. The bridge is really huge and the size shows well on this.

    Hi Craig,
    This really shows the power of repetition. And even more clearly the absolute cleanliness of the place than on the previous one.
    I wonder what kind of army of cleaners come there if a sandstorm breaks.

    Hi Lisa,
    I knew the life of aboriginals is not easy today, nor yesterday. But your note gives much more clear idea of what is going on down there.
    I see some kind of symbolism in your picture, smoke coming and covering his face.
    Keep on fighting!

    Hi Eleu,
    I would never have guessed that Fokker F27 version would still be in active service of U.S. Army, and even on such highly visible task. It looks great on this light and interesting to see the big door open with parachuters ready.

    Hi JC,
    Quite cosy looking urban park with the little pond. I like how you chose those reed on the foreground glowing on sunshine. Dark clouds on the background give good contrast.

    Hi Vincent,
    Those plants indeed look special. And also the photo looks good with various tones of green and grey. It's hard to estimate the size of them on this picture so thanks for the note of their maximum height.

    Hi Neyvan,
    Yes, warm toned light looks beautiful on this one. And architecture of Stockholm's old town is awesome. Leafy viewpoint above the city looks quite peaceful.
    So this is around midsummer, your date on the photo data appears to be incorrect.

    Hi Malgo,
    This brings me nice memories from the Olympics of Barcelona. It is an impressive piece of art and no doubt did it's job as a telecommunications link well too. I hadn't heard the explanation of athelete and a torch before, and it never occurred to my mind either.
    You have well chosen foreground too with those poles and wires. (I don't try to guess explanation for them!)

    Impressive picture of rough Icelandic nature. Waves hit hard on the coastline. Dark basalt rocks make strong contrast with snowy mountains in the background.

    The old castle in sunshine and colourful autumn landscape looks really nice. Those black birds add extra charm, and the nearest one is perfectly placed.

    Very stylish composition. Contrast between snowy foreground and lake landscape down the valley looks great. And the guy in black is well placed.

    Hi Noel,
    Such overly cute setting certainly makes me smile. All the details are in harmony including the birds on the straw roof. I couldn't resist buying something from that table. As far as I know we don't have such festival that would quite match your description here in Finland.

    Hi Jean,
    That patch of sunshine coming down between clouds is simple perfectly placed. It highlights well both the church and the green lawn. Those greens look very nice between the forest that is still leafless after winter.

    Hi Craig,
    Absolutely stunning place. Huge, clean and follows well all the architectural traditions of the region (as far as I can understand).
    Other than wide angle lens wouldn't even fit there.
