    Hi Silvio
    This is a fantastic goods, the way is stacked is cool and it looks like an entire village made into one mansion, I invasive it would be an interesting place inside. A great architecture image

    Hi Gyorgy
    I would never think to go black and white on a snowscape, but it works so really well here. There is a brilliant mystical feel to this, especially the cloud in front if the sun. Really nicely done
    Cheers

    Hello Ataman,
    I like very much this scene and the fact that your minimal composition is so rich in drama. I like the colours and the silvery tint that dominates most of the frame. You captured a lot of lovely nuances through the grand play of light and shadow. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hello dear Takero,
    well, different cultures, different traditions, I'm glad we have both of them and many more in this world. This is a very spectacular picture and it's not only the many details and colours of the costumes that makes it so, it's also the lovely ladies and their festive moods and smiles. The sharpness you achieved is stunning, despite the soft background, we get a nice sense of context. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Ciao Carlo,
    portico ed alberi hanno fatto un meraviglioso contributo alla tua composizione tanto per la ripetizione ed il grafismo della vista reale quanto per l' irresistibile effetto artistico nei riflessi. Gradevole la presenza del signore ed il suo cane che e' appena percepita pero' nel riflesso. I colori sono davvero deliziosi e mi piace anche il modo confidente in cui hai gestito i contrasti. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buona serata,

    Hello Joginder,
    the people look very serious, they must be saying prayers and putting all of their hearts and minds into them. I like that our glance is drawn to the same focal point as theirs and they haven't noticed the presence of a lens so close to them. Despite the tight crop, we get a thorough idea about the wider setting too. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Hi Chris
    I think you did a brilliant job with the blue, to my eyes I would not at all think it was overexposed. I like that the light is so vivid, it balances the darker area inside the cave quite nicely. I'm surprised to see that little building there too. Great shot
    Cheers

    Bonsoir Nicou,
    I like very much your idea to place the intricate, natural pattern of the snowy tree across the foreground, partly hiding and partly revealing the landscape and the sky in the background. A lovely combination that favours both themes and is inspiring. I also like the subtle colours and the rhythm of so many diagonals. Congratulations and thank you!

    Ciao Silvio,
    il complesso di architettura apparentemente antica e solida fa' uno sfondo molto interessante e grafico, pieno di angoli ma anche di chiari dettagli. Mi piace molto come hai posizionato il sentiero, rendendolo un elemento importante ed invitante. E' superba l' idea di mettere i brillanti colori e segni della primavera contro lo sfondo scuro. Complimenti e grazie!

    Hello Lars,
    I like very much the effect the enormous spider has on the cityscape. Your picture has perfect clarity and allows us to observe all the details and the city life through the giant, slender legs. I'm not sure if it's the effect of a special lens or an intentional tilt that you gave to the scene, but I like it very much as it seems to have breathed dynamism into the graceful and creepy creature. The soft and bright colours of the setting are delightful and create effective contrast. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Bonjour Serge,
    I've only seen this beach in pictures but I like it very much, it's amazing to relax on the sand with the wall of a historic fortress at your back. There's plenty of fresh air and sense of space and freedom and also a sense of intimacy in this place. Your perspective, that includes a fair view of the seascape, is wonderful. Clear details and rich, contrasting colours make the scene look so vivid. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Hello Chris,
    this is an awesome sight, it's great you took a ride on the helicopter and were able to capture such a comprehensive view of the whole landscape. I like that we can see even beyond the imposing formation that seems to have swollen right out of the earth. The name it was given is absolutely marvellous too. The richness and glow of the colours make the scene even more attractive. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hello Burak,
    this picture is pleasing, characteristic and smells of summer. I like the idle scene in the foreground and the group of people approaching from the distance, I guess that, when they meet, the two groups are going to look and smile at each other. I like very much the colours and the dispersed details that define the style of this alley. The lush foliage overhanging the delapidated facade is a very curious and attractive element. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Rob,
    an interesting intervention in the cityscape, it hides part of the museum's facade but also somehow draws attention to it. The people make the scene busy and vibrant, it seems that the I amsterdam installation gets a lot of attention and I like that some people have climbed on it, adding scale and making it look like a playground open to ideas. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Noel,
    thank you very much for the dedication, I really appreciate your thinking of my pictures in front of a scene like this! Your picture is very beautiful, composed really well to describe the fixed features of the setting, show us movement and daily life flowing through it and please our eyes with rich, contrasting colours. Details and depth are marvellous, it's great to watch the seagulls making circles around the boat. Congratulations and many thanks!

    Hello Ike,
    an attractive and interesting panorama, captured from a perfect viewpoint. The clarity of the view you are offering us is superb, we can study the whole area thoroughly and learn a lot about it. I like how the cityscape with its repeating patterns spreads along the horizon and how relaxing and delightful the area of the "Seven Mills" is. The colours have just the right warmth and are very agreeable. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Gert,
    I like very much the rich colours and the overwhelming repetition that has created so strong graphics at the side of the street. The shadows accentuate the vibrance of the spectacular display. I like the sense of movement that directs our glance to the right but also the way the other scene works as a firm focal point. The arrogant expressions in the poster are amusing. Congratulations and thank you!
