    Hello Kamila,
    I like very much how the sunlit cityscape stands out between the dark water and sky. You captured a very special moment, a dramatic and fascinating view. Your composition is simple and effective, there's pleasing space above the skyline. The light, but also the shadows, give special allure to the cityscape, its details are exquisitely sharp and interesting. There's great sense of depth between and beyond the buildings. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely Easter week,
    Ourania

    Hi Eleni,
    A nice comparison of two very different but equally important modes of transport! I would be like you in that I would feel bad using a donkey to carry me around (I am not a mall person, haha) but I guess this is their purse, and once they are treated well I guess they are happy. They certainly seem to be in good health, and they make such an important part of your composition here. They make the scene look like it from another time. A beautiful composition with the town rising off into the right site of the frame.
    Thanks for sharing this unique and interesting view.
    Best wishes
    Noel

    Hi Omid,
    The pavement here is beautiful, so entailed and ornate, not something I see in my own country where grey stone is always the material of choice. I like how the building fills the right hand side of the frame is is perfectly vertical with no lens distortion. A wonderful pastel sky too.
    Best wishes

    Hello Gunnar,
    more or less the same temperature we're having in Athens today. A simple and very attractive presentation of this natural scenery and the way people are associated to it. I like very much the layout of textures and colours in this well balanced composition. The light is very agreeable and there's such a lovely atmosphere on this calm, sunny day. You used the diagonal very effectively to break the symmetry and point out the character of this coast. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely week,

    Hello Ike,
    I like very much the perspective and depth of your composition, you are presenting this unique scenery in a very interesting way. There are fine details even beyond the towers and you have introduced a quiet street scene too. You got great natural tones, in spite of the difficult lighting. I especially like the placement of the cyclist that helps draw us into this extraordinary daily life setting. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonjour Cricri,
    a lovely, picturesque place with pleasant shade for warm summer days. I like very much your composition that is dynamic and solid and displays the most marked characteristics of the setting, features fine, natural colours and shows how people are enjoying this place. The workshop pictures look very appetizing, particularly as it's a little before lunchtime now here in Greece:) Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonjour Serge,
    this is a very lovely place, you are offering us a vivid and enticing impression of it, the colours are rich and delightful and there are appealing natural textures everywhere. I like very much the way the wall extends through the deep and clear scenery, the sky completes the view in a wonderful way. The atmosphere feels calm and intimate, I'd be curious to explore this place. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Gert,
    this is another proof that you can find human interest anywhere and that you can make ordinary scenes look significant and intriguing. I like very much the way you are presenting this simple scene, the workers look too hot and tired, they don't even have the strength to talk and seem to be reluctant to step into the sunlit area and continue their work. The cones provide a graphical and meaningful environment, it's like the people are trapped by them. I also like the textured wall and the closed window. A very interesting "summer in the city scene". Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely week,

    Bonjour, Krzysztof ,
    Effectivement la fenêtre n'est pas une baie vitrée. En France, certaines ouvertures de ce type sont appelées jours de souffrance !

    Bonjour Yvon,
    a marvelous view along the river and over the valley, irresistible depth and superb clarity that allows us to appreciate all the characteristics and details of the beautiful scenery. I like very much how you grounded and framed your composition with the solid, textured rampart. I also like the vividness of the natural colours and the warmth of the stones. Congratulations and thank you!

    Dear Noel

    What a great POV you got here. As much as I love stone circles, I find that it's very difficult to do them true justice in finding the right POV, and demonstrating their size and shape. Here, it looks like you are either 8 foot tall or standing on a hill. Whatever, you've really shown their shape and uniqueness beautifully. So you didn't break in? That's very law abiding of you! I ended up cutting my leg open climbing the wrought iron fence of Rathmullan Priory, and am still looking over my shoulder for the local Fuzz to come and arrest me. Love the colours, the contrasts and the impressive definition of these amazing stones. Your note is superb, as usual. Seriously, why don't you do a photo book? I'd buy it in a heartbeat. Well, thanks for sharing, looks a little chilly for goatskins and antlers...maybe lederhosen, I dunno?

    Glad to hear you've returned safe n sound from Germeny, even if sans lederhosen. I look forward to your skyscraper shots.

    Greetings from post-cyclone Far North Queensland

    I love simple, natural scenes like this Brian. The light has emphasised the freshness of newly opened leaves and they are wonderfully contrasted by the darker backcloth.

    Spring has sprung.... how lovely

    Hello Gosia - This is fascinating. I am struck by the special Palm Sunday robes and wonder what the origins are. Covering the face seems to be a strange thing for a religious ceremony and more akin to those who wish to remain incognito.

    Your shot is stunning; the colour and detail in the robes is superb and I like the way the eye is framed by a sea of purple.

    Warm regards

    Hello John,
    this is a great picture, you made the cloudy day and the difficult lighting conditions look like good luck:) There's a wonderful, consistent chromatic palette and there are certain eye-catching details that help the cityscape become more lively. I like very much the smooth dynamism of the composition, the fine, contrasting textures and the calm mood. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Claude - I love the graphic lines of this landscape; the long straight road disappears over the horizon and is beautifully punctuated by the trees. Additionally the colours are harmonious and you did well to spot the colour-coordinated frog warning.

    What a super shot.

    Hello Krzysztof,
    a very enjoyable and interesting plunging view to the famous landmark. From this point of view we get a thorough presentation of its architectural details and a good glimpse of the setting around it. Your picture is extraordinarily sharp, sunlit and shady areas are so well balanced in terms of lighting. You captured very fine natural colours. Congratulations and thank you!
