    Hello Paja,
    I like very much this straightforward, deep and captivating view of the river, with an interesting urban background and no foreground refrence at all, just a generous view of the river itself. Your composition and the way you managed depth and colours have created a graphic effect, this sets off the natural texture and movement of the water, we can perceive the force of the flow. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a good night,

    Bonsoir Cricri,
    the fog in the middle of the landscape, just a little above the trees, looks like a cloud that has lost its way or like a flying carpet:) I like very much the way you stretched your composition horizontally as well as the depth of this quiet winetr view. The tonal harmony and the timeless mood are superb. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonsoir Jean,
    our beaches on Leros disappeared several times this winter due to strong winds and storms. In some cases we lost the coastal road to the sea and sand too:) I like the simple but strong composition in your photo, the attractive depth and the harmonious, moody tones that cover the entire frame. The warm lights and colours in the sky have a soothing effect that defies the melancholic atmosphere. Congratulations and thank you!

    Ciao Silvio,
    deliziosa questa vista dove la luce invernale crea effetti straordinari. Mi piace molto come il villaggio sulla cima della collina e posizionato profondamente e al centro della composizione, con la nebbia luminosa intorno sembra un isola flottante. Superba la chiarezza che hai ottenuto in condizioni difficili ma interessanti. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buona serata,

    Hello Chris,
    these ancient objects are beautiful, their well designed shapes and fine decorative patterns make them so attractive. I like very much how the arrangement in your frame looks casual, there is agreeable balance, repetition and variation. The colours are natural and lovely, I also like the soft shadows and the 3D effect they produce. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Klaudio,
    I like very much the combination of long perspective and vertical frame, an elegant composition adjusted to the style and peacefulness of the garden. The view of the still and the rippled water, of glassy transparency and fine reflections, justifies the importance of this element in a garden like this, where it offers chances to meditate, play, relax. The parts affected by the sunshine are delightful, the shady area has both fine clarity and a soothing mood. I like that the person is discreet and in contact with the water. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Hello Stephen,
    in this picture, I like how the people are integrated in a wide and deep scenery, the square and the old and new buildings that make up their daily life setting. You composed this scene effectively so that the citysape is well balanced. The bright colours are attractive and clarity is great. It is intriguing to see how the dynamic sky challenges the idea of relaxation. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Maciej,
    lovely bird's eye view of the fine coastal town bathed in the last, warm light of the day. The atmosphere must be wonderful on the beach and in the streets of the town as well. I like the perspective and the picturesque buildings, the sense of space and the way the light affects the quality and the vividness of the colours. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Malgo,
    the grafitti is striking, it seems to dominate the neighbourhood and remind everyone of the missing people and their mothers, keeping the flame of hope and protest vivid, not only for their children but for human rights in general. Those ladies are a huge symbol, anything that has to do with them is awesome. I like the way you filled the frame with the graphics, the colours and the intensity. The mother in the picture seems to be trying to wake the people up with her silent cry. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Roger,
    I can confirm that it is not easy to find a clear plane window that will allow you to photograph and share the fascinating views you may enjoy through it. Your picture is agreeable and offers us quite an accurate description of both the natural and the urban scenery. In this case, the overall texture of the window becomes part of the travelling experience, which the viewer can share too. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Piotr,
    the minimal composition of this picture works superbly, it enhances the fascination of all the elements included in the frame, sets off intriguing interaction and creates suggestive intensity. Textures, light and shadows are fantastic, remarkably defined and so atmospheric. The rhythm of the mountain's diagonals and the rhythm of the silhouettes climbing down seem to be in fine harmony. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonjour Serge,
    the cityscape has been transformed into a fascinating futuristic scenery and the view you are offering us is rewarding and intriguing. I like the play of colours and the way they define different elements and make our exploration more delightful. I appreciate your effort to look for a great point of view on such a cold evening and offer us a comprehensive picture that has excellent definition and very agreeable atmosphere. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Paul,
    I like the close, upward point of view, the layers of your composition, how our interest is first drawn from the street scene to the architecture and then directed to the palm tree in a brighter place, behind the buildings. Details and colours render the whole scene vibrant and intriguing. It's great that the frame is filled with colour and how the narrow glimpse to the background is so significant and delightful. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Wolfgang,
    both pictures are lovely and it is interesting that the big one features a tiny detail of the little one:) The light on the church is superb and so are the colours and the shadows it has created. The blue you obtained in both pictures is so consistent and beautiful. The surface of the moon looks absolutely mesmerizing. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Agnes,
    I like very much the upward point of view that allows us to see the full height of the castle, makes it look majestic and imposing, includes a glimpse of the surroundings and balances the composition very effectivelly using well placed complements. I also like the textural consistency and the heavy, almost monochromtic mood, a creative choice. Congratulations and thank you!

    Καλημέρα Κωνσταντίνε,
    υπέροχη σκηνή και έχεις δίκιο ότι ταξιδιωτικές εικόνες και αναμνήσεις σαν αυτή είναι πολύτιμες. Η ατμοσφαιρα είναι υποβλητική και συναρπαστική. Μου αρέσει που υπάρχει μια μυστηριώδης ακτή στον ορίζοντα καθώς και η υφή της σκοτεινής θάλασσας που εκτείνεται ως εκεί. Τα χρώματα απλώνονται στον ουρανό δυναμικά και είναι επίσης ενδιαφέρων ο αντίστοιχος δυναμισμός στη θάλασσα. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
    Να είσαι καλά, καλή σου μέρα,
    Ουρανία

    a wonderful scenery presented in layers which are well bound together and each of them is fascinating. You captured excellent textures and a superb alternation of bright and moody tones. Cromatic harmony and textural contrasts create great interest. I also like the sense of depth, the dettachment of the horizon from the sky, the liveliness of the sea. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Gerrit,
    there are places like this in Greece too and the atmosphere there is lovely, especially in the shade of the trees. There is beautiful light and very agreeable colours in your photo. I like how the beach scenery consists of pieces divided by the thrunks, looking like a puzzle. The smiling girl is placed nicely and her movement is graceful, I love her dress too. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hola Manu,
    I like the unusual, attractive colours and the inscription which looks playful but has serious allusions too. The tight cropping is very effective and gives the impression that otro mundo lies inside the hole:) The backdrop adds a romantic tone and the concentrated musicians seem to be thinking about what they personal mean by "otro mundo". Congratulations and thank you!

    this is a very lovely beach, the view you are presenting in this fine picture shows that it is long and wide and has a lot to offer to visitors. I like the sense of depth and the graduation of textures and colours. The movement of the sea is delightul but light and colours seem to be shifting too. There is a wonderful, timeless atmosphere.
