    Hello Chris,
    Tourists are never my first choice when I need human presence in a picture, but sometimes no "locals" are available and the photo would be so boring without anyone at all, so I take what I have. These two don't disturb the view, in fact the man's activity provides some kind of action to the entire scene. It must be an amazing feeling to walk down these ancient streets, so I am surprised there are so few tourists around.
    Best regards,
    Gert

    Hello Costantino,
    A beautiful view of the small island. There is a lovely contrast between the strong green tones and the pale pink and blue light.

    Hello Daniel,
    I posted a fairly similar photo from another Dutch city last year, but bikes and beautiful buildings are always seen together in the Netherlands, so it is an almost inevitable composition. It would have been even better without the car, but you may have been forced to wait a long time for a view showing only bikes, people and the palace. The soft light and smooth colours make this a great view even with the car.
    Best regards,
    Gert

    Hello Luis,
    This is almost identical to the photo shown here earlier by Alexandre. But it's a beautiful scenery, the light is almost magic and the dog is very nice and perfectly placed, so I give it another green smiley. ;-)

    Hello Carlo,
    I suppose the note concerns the elegantly ornamented church to the left and not the modest chapel on the right side of the square. I am very much attracted to the Romanesque style with its relative simplicity. This is a fine square and a nice photo although it hasn't quite the clarity that would have been possible by some very simple further treatment.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Murat,
    The busts and the persons watching them create a good depth up the staircase. This effect is enhanced by the pillars on the upper floor. It's a well composed photo of cultural and human interest.

    Hello Danos,
    The darkness surrounding the brightly lit stage and the ruined wall creates a magical atmosphere. You exposed the photo perfectly and I am sure the performance in this fantastic environment also gave you an unforgettable experience.

    Hello Luis,
    This is not just the most central church of the city but clearly also the brightest. I remember the heated discussions when it received this paint after a restoration in the late 1960's, some describing it as vulgar, while it actually just went back to its original look. Now I think everyone loves it. You used the other buildings nicely as frames and captured the natural colours perfectly.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Christiane,
    The poster of the woman catching a suntan in the dark underground is the strongest eye-catcher and you placed it well at the side of the photo. The many diagonal lines on all sides come together at the entrance to the tunnel, creating superb depth and also greatly brightening the view. You created a smart composition with very simple means.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Peter,
    I have probably been on the same hill, but I didn't have the same fine light. The sunbeams break through the clouds very nicely and spread a wonderful light across parts of the valley. The light and scenery and weather together create a wonderful view which you captured cleverly.

    Hello Daniel,
    It's a wonderful shot, and there is really a slice of Finland seen at the bottom ;-). In recent years I haven't seen the milky way like this. Since childhood in the countryside I only remember three nights on a truck in the middle of Sahara, where there was absolutely no light pollution. This is a photo of an overwhelming beauty, very cleverly taken.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Chris,
    Herculaneum and Pompei are probably the most interesting, easily accessible European sites I haven't seen. I really should go there. This interesting photo shows how ancient and new buildings are next door neighbours. I guess it's an almost unique situation.

    Hello Kasia,
    You spotted the boy in the window well. The sign below him sends a strong and somewhat ironic message but the photo is greatly enhanced by the boy's presence. The view is nicely framed by the brick wall. I have waited long for the two workshops but so far I have only seen one. "Nothing special" but a nice group of well dressed people in front of a beautiful building.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
    PS Now I have seen the second WS. Great photo which could have been a perfect main upload - a few moments later. Now it's "merely" a very good shot.

    Hello Jean,
    This is a quite nicely structured photo. There is good balance between the lighthouse and the statue to the left, the road splits in three directions and there are two separate lawns. The wall of the citadel is well balanced by the sea and the land across the bay. It's a pleasant view with many focal-points and a nice light.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Rob,
    What a great idea to make one of the visitors part of the exhibition. Indeed those shoes, the rolled up trousers and the pink underwear are like a work of art. We see from the workshops that he took part in the exhibition with a lot of energy, really in full swing. It seems to have been an interesting exhibition even without that man. Three wonderfui photos that I fully enjoy.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
