    Hello Gosia,
    Athens may not be one of my favourite cities, but this museum alone would make a visit worthwhile. And this photo is just marvellous with its contrasts of colours and light. I love the inclusion of some people sitting on the stairs and how they create a dynamism by breaking the otherwise perfect symmetry. You must have very steady hands to attempt a photo like this without a tripod, and achieveing such a perfect result.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Wolfgang,
    It's wonderful to watch the love and tenderness streaming from the two parents towards their baby in the pram. They placed themselves perfectly on each side of the pram, both facing the centre of the view. The fountain has created a nicely grey background. This is not one of your amusing photos, it's just very nice.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Pavle,
    This is a very attractive collection of photos of the traditional way of preparing meat for a big party. Each photo would have been good enough to be presented on its own. They are all well taken and with excellent colours. Together they tell us of a wonderful day of activities and good companionship.

    Hej Trevor,
    Den här bilden har samma fina atmosfär som den förra. Du har lyckats komponera den och behandla färgerna så att den har blivit vacker som en tavla. Det är en beundransvärt välgjord bild med bra ljus och fina nyanser.
    Vänliga hälsningar,

    Hello Serghei,
    This is a fine evening shot, very well exposed and with a good city atmosphere. The buildings are beautiful, but personally I was rather disappointed with Gdansk. The extremely high concentration of tourists, souvenir shops and tourist restaurants in a very small area was a bit too much for me. But we all have our different exeriences.
    Best regards,

    Hello Jean Claude,
    These reflections are really superb. The very quiet river has acted like a perfect mirror. The most interesting part of the view is at the far end, but my eyes are steadily guided towards that area by the reflections of the houses on both sides. The compositions is nicely balanced and the colours are very good.
    Kind regards,

    Hej Peter,
    Jag minns den här platsen från mitt enda besök i Prag för mer än 30 år sedan. Du har fångat den tryckta och sorgliga atmosfären mycket fint genom de lutande gravstenarna över alla dessa bortglömda människor. Skärpan är mycket bra och färgerna har också bevarats bra under scanningen.
    Hälsningar,
    Gert

    A superb view of the very pretty town with its great location on the fjord. The cruise ship looks as big as half of the town. The colors and light are outstanding.

    Hello Daniel,
    There is a great contrast between the intensity of the fire and the cool blueishness of the surroundings on this chilly but light Midsummer's night. The bonfire gets a superb effect from being all surrounded by water. I was in Helsinki this week and I wouldn't have been surprised to find a painting like this in the Ateneum art museum. This photo has such a strong and timeless Finnish (or generally Nordic) atmosphere.
    Best regards,

    Hello Krzysztof,
    This is a nicely composed photo with good colours. I like the long curve of the beach and the line of people so well spread out all along the water. There is a very nice contrast between the brown sand and the blue sky and I also enjoy the view of the well shaped clouds.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Wolfgang,
    Another lovely coincidence. It's an amusing photo which makes me wonder how you can always find these huge posters of people. To me that seems to be the most difficult moment when searching for interesting photo opportunities. The excellent treatment of the greyscale is also typical of your personal style.

    Hello Carlo,
    This is definitely a classic view from an Italian town and a view that comes to most foreigners mind when they think of Italy. It's a simple but very elegant composition with beautifully matching colours and a good balance.

    Hello Silvio,
    This is a great photo from the blue hour. The yellow light creates a fantastic atmosphere among the old buildings, but I also love the blue light shining through a window to the right and one to the left. It's a very well composed and perfectly exposed photo.

    Hello Satya,
    It happens to me now and then that I am very fond of one of my own photos without being able to explain to myself exactly why. In this case you obviously enjoyed the ironic contradiction between the dilapidated look of the building and the signs and the beauty supposed to be found inside. At least this is what appeals to me. The man walking by was needed to make the view more lively. We could make up stories about him, but that is not quite necessary. I find this an enjoyable photo also because of the various tones of green, yellow and blue.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Luciano,
    This is the kind of street photo where nothing is happening but where the viewer can make up any kind of story. It is full of nice details with very fine colours and a beautiful light. I always like photos featuring cats :-).

    Hi Jasmine
    I just couldn't resist this one.
    How could anyone resist viewing or taking a photo of a red and white lighthouse :)

    interesting note, and now i'm going to have to check out that other photo from the inside too.

    the blue and white skyline in the bg helps to bring out the lighthouse itself.
    fun shot

    Hi Recep
    yes, a true timeless piece of photography.
    I don't think there is anything here that gives it away, one could easily think this was taken 150 years ago.

    love this overall atmosphere and mood.
    well captured
