    Hi Malgo,
    What Can I say? I completely agree you about barbarity and stupidity of destroying old monuments. And barbarity of war in general.
    Beautiful picture on great warm late afternoon or early morning light.

    Hi Chris,
    Those background mountain slopes look amazing even on this rather flat light. The buildings look very old and neglected which makes them picturesque of course. Just wonderful place for views.

    Hi Jorge,
    It's surprising that the elks are there so tame that it's possible to take such a close-up. The guide was of course right, I wouldnt get close to those antlers.
    It's amazing you got a change the combine the elk and the geyser in the same shot. Some of the white sky could be cropped off.

    Hi Jean,
    Who could resist sunflowers!
    A popular theme more or less perfectly executed. Vibrant colours, short DoF and off centre framing are clearly right choices in this kind of image.

    Hi Olivier,
    I didn't see this building in evening lights and had no idea that it has such an innovative illumination system. Thanks for showing. You were there on the right time in blue hour. Colourful lights and darkening sky are well in balance.

    Hej Gert,
    This picture has surprise element that makes me smile. You made the feeling of length stronger by kneeling to the level of children. I guess it's about some event for children. Vertical framing fits well.

    Hi Klaudio,
    It surely looks delicious and furthermore it is very carefully built plate. And as you mention the final touch is your composition, I also like details reaching corners.

    Hi Nicou,
    Lovely lake view. Backlight gives nice soft pastel tones to this landscape. I like that line of flowers at the bottom.

    Hi Neyvan,
    First I thought there's something wrong with colours, but this must be before the sun rises above the mountains. The view shows well how Gornergratbahn starts rising right from the village. Excellent framing with that rack rail leading right to the lower left corner.

    Very nice palette of earth tones on those slopes. Those trees also have many different shapes. Again a well framed shot revealing natural wonders.

    Hi Ana,
    Beautiful sunset light. Sky and waves have special, not very saturated colours. Fishermen make excellent main focal point. But that place looks scary. With such waves it seems that they could be washed away any second.

    Hi Eleu,
    I've never seen a balloon on twilight myself. Those bubbles of light are just so beautiful they could be there just for sun. But I guess they take of on sunrise.

    Hi Chris,
    Light on those fountain sprays loks just great. I can imagine how it changes when water sprays out of those red spots. Also the background building is very nicely lit. You have a good low angle for this view.

    Hi Karolina,
    Well timed shot of the tram right where the tram line branches. B&W grainy processing looks quite convincing giving impression of older times. On the other hand I like the bright yellow on these trams. I didn't remember the gauge is 900 mm, that is quite rare.

    Hi Ike,
    Those sporty rowers bring England to my mind. I couldn't have guessed this is Israel. Actually only that single palmtree reveals this is not England.
    Auch a lovely place. Very green, a real oasis on a hot day.

    Hi Jorge,
    Interesting landscape with mostly bare slopes and a river running deep in the gorge. I think grey weather works well this time, giving strong feeling of wet foggy atmosphere. You selected the viewpoint carefully. Those pines make very nice frame for the fall.

    Hi Ana,
    Two people and the little goat make quite photogenic trio I think, everyone ignoring each other. Those shadows show how the sun is really high up. I can imagine the heat.

    It is a lovely place offering good hiking paths and unbeatable views. After winter I guess it wasn't too hot either. Looking at that path gives strong feeling of perspective.
