    Hello Chris,
    I like very much the solid composition that resulted from your low viewpoint, the lines are strong and make the arrangement of details look neat and comprehensible. Although there aren't any people in the frame, it feels like a busy place. I like how you handled natural and artificial light and produced moody, contrasting colours. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great weekend,

    Hello Murat,
    I like how the people are squeezed in the right side of your frame without losing the dynamism of their spontaneous actions, as a mesmerizing panorama extends in the rest of the available space. A captivating image of the fruit and vegetables of the season, so fresh and delicious. Details and colours are superb. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Krzysztof,
    a lovely and interesting view from the promenade, it feels like we are enjoying it while leaning on the railing. I like the clear and rich panorama in the background and the way the boats lead us to it. The colours are lovely, the sea reflects the deep blue of the sky. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Paja,
    it's no surprise that you needed three collages and a rich collection of pictures to cover this annual event and show us so much of its layout, procedures and atmosphere. All of your photos are clear and detailed, they have significant focal points and pleasing natural colours. Another good reason for an entertaining social gathering in your city. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hola Angel,
    the repeating patterns of the architecture create a rhythmical and graceful style, the dark, natural frame you used for this view has enhanced the effectiveness of your viewpoint and rendered your composition even more elegant. I like the smooth balance of the light and the pleasant, bright colours. Congratulations and thank you!

    Ciao Silvio,
    splendida la foto della Cattedrale di Norcia che hai preso solo qualche giorno dopo il terremoto e ci presenti in magnifica luce e colori. Alcuni danni sul campanile sono evidenti ma probabilmente saranno quariti facilmente. Non sono altri segni che questo posto fu colpito dal terremoto e la gente sembra rilassata. Un simbolo di speranza certamente. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buon fine settimana,

    Bonjour Serge,
    a very attractive and atmospheric picture, the title you gave it is very intriguing, it makes us think of the countryside and the fields from the viewpoint of production and the necessary industrial structures. The focal points are placed excellently on the horizon, the layers of your composition are well-balanced. The clouds and the colours create a suggestive mood. Congratulations and thank you!

    Ciao Luciano,
    e' sicuro che hai visto e scoperto molte belle cose ed immagini durante il tuo viaggio in Islanda, e' gia evidente dalla foto d'introduzione ed il paesaggio insolito, trasiente ed affascinante che ci presenta. L' atmosfera e' molto suggestiva e la scena sembra essere nata nella fantasia di un' artista. Magnifiche le tessiture ed i colori. Complimenti e grazie!

    Hello John,
    I like very much the strong lines and angles you have created from your vantage point on the bridge. The lines carry much detail and interest, especially the one of the bank with houses, vegetation and reflections. The smoothness of the sky and the water is marvellous, the colours are vivid and pleasing. The curve of the row of trees is attractive, it makes me think of a dinosaur:) Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Stephen,
    I like very much both the graphic impression you created with your composition and the precision of the description. You cropped the scene excellently and adjusted the frame on its style, there's superb dynamism enhanced by the clouds as well. You managed light and contrast very effectively, there's great clarity all over. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Lars,
    I like very much the 3D effect in both pictures, especially in the main post, the building is very cute and looks like a toy. In this picture you have focused entirely on it and the details you captured are superb, even in the shade. The workshop picture helps us realize that the setting is spacious and even more inviting. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Gerrit,
    it's a beautiful place and there's no wonder it allures visitors with its elegance. Your composition is great, I like how the slightly elevated viewpoint brings out the lines and depth of the foreground, the windmill is a superb focal point. The angle of the light darkened the colours a bit but it also gave a fine, glassy texture on the water and nice reflections. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Daniel,
    I haven't travelled as much as you but I once stayed in Florence for five weeks and I agree with your note and title. The view is fantastic and, when one thinks of the cultural and historical treasures it contains, there's no limit to one's fascination. I appreciate the balance, depth and wealth of details in your picture. The colours are very attractive. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonjour Nicou,
    a very lovely and attractive picture for its strong contrasts and graphic layout. I like very much the light and the bold, natural colours. With only a few features we get a comprehensible glimpse of the scenery. I also like the sense of tranquility and stillness, the boats look like a couple that's fallen asleep while sunbathing:) Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Ike,
    I like how your composition gave a valid and interesting role to poles and cables, it's as if they were responsible of holding up the setting. I also like the angle of the bridge and the placement of the tram, they enhance dynamism. The setting is clear, comprehensive and intriguing in all its contrasts. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Rob,
    a very intriguing close-up to the structure of the bridge, so well-defined and in good perspective against the soft blue sky. I'm always fascinated by structures like this, which look so graphic and all the features that make it look this way also play a significant role in its statics and solidity. Congratulations and thank you!

    Ciao cara Lisa,
    e' molto difficile affrontare il colpo, le perdite ed i segni profondissimi che ha lasciato il terremoto. E' incredibile come la vita e la mentalita' delle persone comlpite, ma anche degli osservatori, puo' cambiare in pocchi secondi. Speriamo che si trovera' il coraggio di andare avanti. Il gentile signore della tua foto e la "grotta" dorata dei prodotti italiani riscalda il cuore. Complimenti e grazie!

    Hello Malgo,
    it's great that you selected and cropped this part of the facade so effectively, bringing close to us all these statues, scenes and decorations to observe and study. I like the colours and the contrast of shadows and window panes. It's like looking at a photograph from that distant era and gathering information about it. Congratulations and thank you!
