    Hello Gunnar,
    this is an impresive, fascinating church building. It looks like a faitytale palace and the legend that accompanies it enhances its allure. You are offering us a magnificent impression of it in an interesting and well balanced composition with excellent sharpness and colours. I like very much the textures and the 3D impression. The colours are natural and atmospheric. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hello Olivier,
    The curve of the dirt road blends so well with the mountain scenery. The single car is an important element in the composition and the dark clouds frame the top very well. A beautiful and haunting landscape.

    This abbey is beautifully presented in your photo. The colours are perfect and the fresh green of the carefully mowed grass contrasts with the exterior of the abbey. An excellent note too.

    Hello John,
    I don't know much about the special qualities and drawbacks of particular lenses but the result you got here looks great. There's wonderful depth and clarity, very fine details -despite shades and extreme contrasts- no distortions or side effects. It's impressive we can see so accurate details and textures, enjoy natural colours and grasp the particular atmosphere too. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a good night,

    Hello Lars,
    this is a wide, clear, very interesting cityscape, the dynamic cloudscape has added drama and dynamism to it. You managed the light in an amazing way and retained excellent details, textures and quality in all the areas and elements of your composition. There's fine sharpness on the buildings and the colours are distinct and pleasing too. Congratulations and thank you!

    Καλησπέρα Δάνο,
    πολύ ωραία και ενδιαφέρουσα αυτή η παρουσίαση του Κάστρου της Μύρινας, χτισμένου περίπου την ίδια εποχή με το Κάστρο της Λέρου. Μου αρέσει πολύ ο τρόπος που το γαλάζιο φόντο αναδεικνύει τα χρώματα και τις λεπτομέρειες του τοπίου και του Κάστρου - το ένα ξεχωρίζει από το άλλο μετά από προσεκτική παρατήρηση και χάρη στην εξαιρετική οξύτητα της φωτογραφίας σου. Η σημαία που κυματίζει προσθέτει με τον δικό της τρόπο χαρακτήρα και δυναμισμό. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
    Να είσαι καλά, καλή σου νύχτα,
    Ουρανία

    Bonsoir Christian,
    a neat and elegant composition to present this busy little harbour and make the viewer's/visitor's experience of it interesting and delightful. I like very much the diagonals and the colours in the foreground, the background scenery looks promising. You managed the light and the bright sky with great skill, details and colours are superb. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    this view is spectacular and beautiful. The water is so clear and transparent, it looks as if you had a magic lens that could see through the surface. The colours look marvellous in this bright light, the blue area is delightful and mysterious since we can't see through it, like in the foreground. The boats and the reflection render it even more interesting. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Hello Chris,
    the strong, rising perspective you chose makes this scenery even more interesting and I also like the way you arranged proportions and space within your frame. A fascinating place, the cliff, the wall and the houses look so intriguing and hiding lots of stories within. The light is splendid and the contrast provided by the blue colours is marvellous. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Angshu,
    this is a very lovely, romantic sunset where the warm colours come mainly from the city lights and the fading warmth in the sky is mesmerizing. I like very much the blue ambiance and it's really great that we can enjoy it without missing any details in this fine scenery. I also like the arrangement and balance of your composition. A beautiful, wholesome place indeed. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonsoir Didi,
    this is a lovely, neat marina, full of boats and reflections. Your composition is very interesting with the juxtaposition of the perspective of the marina to the grandiose, escalating cityscape. You achieved excellent clarity and details through a very effective balance between sunny and shady parts. The colours are very delightful and the sharp flying seagull makes the scene really special. Congratulations and thank you!

    this picture has a mesmerizing abstract quality but has also retained the textures and qualities of the natural elements that compose it. I like very much the minimalism of the layout and the sense of movement. The monochrome enhances the impression that this is an artistic abstract image. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hola Maria querida,
    I recognized the type of boat in the foreground from another picture you posted recently, the palace/hotel standing in the lake looks like a luxury boat too. Its bright white colour makes it very eye-catching and I keep wondering what lies behind its walls. The natural framing is very effective, the surrounding colours create a mysterious atmosphere. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hola Angel,
    people standing in the corner of the frame, introducing us to the scenery, seem to be a kind of trademark of yours, they are well placed in your compositions and their presence is agreeable. I like very much the perspective, details and depth of this view. This is a very picturesque street and it's interesting to see some serene daily life scenes in it too. The clarity and the colour quality under the specific lighting conditions is great. Congratulations and thank you!

    There is so much of France that I haven't visited and your photos encourage me to see more. This is a lovely town centre with interesting architecture. The white lines of the pedestrian crossing makes a good flow through the composition so you chose an excellent viewpoint.
    Lovely!
