    Hello Neyvan,
    you captured with scene with great timing and dynamism. The urban scenery looks very interesting and vibrant through the network of perspectives, the excellent details and the attractive colours of your picture. The way you framed was essential for keeping a fine balance of all the eye-catching and the smaller elements that make up this view. You used the light very aptly, offering us slice of the city's life that is clear and pleasant. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Bonsoir Cricri,
    perspective, depth and framing work superbly. I like very much how this seaside place unfolds and spreads before us. You are presenting a very rich and deep view, rendering it so neat and clear. The panoramic frame is very rewarding, full of details, sunshine and vibrant colours. The atmosphere of this place is lovely, you have captured a lot of the factors that make it inviting. Congratulations and thank you!

    Καλησπέρα Δάνο,
    έχω ακούσει και δει πολλά θετικά για τους Παξούς, η φωτογραφία σου τα επιβεβαιώνει με θαυμάσιο τρόπο. Με μια απλή σύνθεση προσφέρεις τόση ομορφιά και πολλές πληροφορίες στον θεατή. Ωραίο το σκηνικό της προκυμαίας, καθαρά και ευχάριστα χρώματα, η θάλασσα γεμάτη ζωηρές αντανακλάσεις. Το φως δίνει ζωή και λάμψη στα πάντα. Μου αρέσει επίσης η αίσθηση που δίνεις στον παρατηρητή, ότι κινείται παράλληλα με την προκυμαία. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
    Να είσαι καλά, καλή σου νύχτα,
    Ουρανία

    Bonsoir Jean,
    this is a most attractive picture, the scenery, the golden light and the format you chose are marvelous. I love the depth, the silhouetted boat and its movement, the dominating source of light and the different ways in which it affects the rendering of the textures in the two parts of the frame. The golden reflections are mesmerizing. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonsoir Nicole,
    this scenery looks agreeable, interesting and amusing, the little harbour is so crowded and I like very much the ample space you offered to it from your elevated vantage point. There's superb depth and the background is clear and comprehensive too. The little group of people in the foreground adds great reference. Despite the weak sunlight, the colours you captured are lovely. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello dear Ali,
    a lovely portrait of a serious little girl who stopped her play for a moment to pose for you. I like that you placed her off centre and that the blurry backdrop makes her stand out so vividly. You captured very fine natural tones and textures as well as a lovely play of light and breeze in her hair. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello dear Takero,
    you captured another lovely smile and the delighted expression of a dancer who is really enjoying her performance. I like very much how you isolated this fleeting scene so sharply and vividly. The sense of movement and the colours are superb, the play of sharpness and blurriness fascinating. Congratulations and thank you! Autumn has arrived in Greece too, maybe a little earlier than we expected. We are optimistic though, and hope for sunnier and clearer weather next week...:)

    Hola Pili,
    this is a beautiful picture, an intriguing abstract interpretation. It looks so delightful and festive too. Your idea to frame it tightly and reverse it was brilliant, the ripples and the wiggles make a fascinating effect. I also love how you worked with the light and the intensity of the colours. You achieved a very fine result. Congratulations and thank you!
    I wish all the best for an enjoyable and creative photographic career now that you retired!

    Ciao cara Lisa,
    mi piace molto come il fruttivendolo posa sorridente ed amichevole con le sue frutta. Vende cose deliziose e sicuramente ne e' fiero. Hai creato una composizione superba nel quadro verticale, c' e' grande profondita', tutto e' posizionato elegantemente e non c' e' niente di superfluo. Mi piace molto come il sorriso ed i colori brillanti nel primo piano sono contrastati dalle ombre e le tonalita' scure. Chiarezza ed illuminazione sono gestite ottimamente. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buona giornata,

    Hello Satya,
    this is a swordfish, it's found in the Aegean Sea too. It's very tasty and served at most seaside restaurants all over Greece. When a fishing boat brings it to a harbour, people usually gather to look and ask the fisherman for details. Strange how it ended up abandoned on this crowded beach. You captured an interesting scene with the boys posing and other people walking around them. There's great depth and the homogeneous reflection of the sky creates a graphical impression. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Hello Malgo,
    this is an extraordinary urban setting, the architecture and colours of the buildings are irresistible. Your picture has inviting depth and very attractive details, makes the viewer wish to wander into the scenery. You used the light wonderfully, the sunlit facades have beautiful, rich colours and stand out superbly as they are contrasted by the cloudy sky and the shady foreground. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Gert,
    I like very much how the lady's posture contrasts the very neat setting. An interesting daily life scene, an unusual habit and a fine composition to present them. Anyone who sits in front of the shop's window is sure to get some attention, the lady obviously didn't mind being inspected along with the clothes' display and didn't mind being photographed either. I like her attitude, the play of colours and the graphic contribution of words and signs:) They are such an integral part of urban life and you use them so well in your compositions. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Andre,
    their legs and feet have a very fine rhythm, they look so confident and perfectly coordinated that they could make a superb separate composition, in my opinion. I like the tight vertical frame that accentuates their closeness and how they have isolated themselves from the crowd through their contact and dance. Your work with the monochrome is excellent too. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Aleksander,
    a very intriguing setting, you framed your picture very aptly, creating depth and including several sides of the mine, even a bit of its ceiling. There are interesting, contrasting textures and you handled the artificial lighting expertly, capturing lovely touches of light and colour all over the frame and rendering the atmosphere attractive. I also like the play with reflection and transparency on the glassy surface. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonjour Denis,
    this is a marvelous picture, very well framed with the dark tip of the boat and the ropes standing out in the warmly coloured environment of the harbour. I appreciate your consideration to include the whole of the number and to give dynamism to the boat. The two little anchors contribute their own rhythmical pattern. Your work with reflections and the wall is remarkable. I like so much the smooth way in which the solid stone wall is "liquidated" and transformed into the graphical reflections of the waterfront architecture. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hello dear Mesut,
    I came to know this harbour through your photos and I like it very much. You always find interesting views and details to photograph there. This is a lovely graphical composition, the colours create superb contrasts. You filled the foreground with interest and the background is attractive and interesting too. There will be lots of activity in the harbour again, I hope you'll be there to enjoy it. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Farhat,
    I like the way you used the panoramic frame, chose a subtle perspective instead of a symmetrical composition and made the extremely long façade look endless. The humidity and the haze create a mysterious, still atmosphere. The colours are charming, their contrasts interesting. Despite the distance and the difficult lighting, you captured fine details. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Ray,
    these rock formations are stunning and your presentation in a deep, vertical frame is rewarding and interesting. I like the succeeding layers of rocks leading us through this unique scenery. I think that they evoke movement and look like petrified waves. The textures are sharp and the play of light and shadow fascinating. I like both the warm tones and the cold contrast of the sky. Congratulations and thank you!

    the three words of the title tell a long story, the words on the graffiti too. Your picture was taken with great timing, there's the kind of action and suspense that feed the young people of this area every day.
