    Hello Daniel.
    Difficult position of the sun, to capture this fantastic image, but solved it with great solvency and achieved a splendid image of the church in this backlight.
    Very good color that highlights the image.
    Well done. I like it.
    Have a good start to the week.
    Best Regards.
    Luis.

    Hi Serghei,
    you have mentioned that your friend was driving you through his favourite parts of Cyprus. So far, with those two photos I have seen from you now, I am a bit worried that he may have showed you a subtly distorted view of this beautiful island :)

    Nicosia was a very particular place to visit and I have really enjoyed it. I just regret that I didn't stay there longer but it was so hot!

    Nice composition with the decorative element in the back and the ladies in traditional clothes in the centre of attention. The pigeons add another lovely touch too.
    Very well spotted!!

    Hi, Jean.
    A stunning view of this part of the Pyrenees, superb that snowy landscape of high peaks, ideal contrast from the hillside to the sun in the foreground, with the background in shadow, the pair of skiers, give ideal of the greatness of the place.
    Well done. I like it.
    Have a good start to the week.
    Best Regards.

    Ciao Lisa,
    wonderful wild life photography. It has quite a decent quality. In the situations like this one has to react quite fast with whatever is available. I am usually very slow: landscapes are too dynamic for me to capture :)
    The main reason I take photos is because exactly they are helping myself to refresh memories of best times of my life: being outdoor with my wife in beautiful places. And it works out quite well: I like browsing though my old photos. The quality is important but the memories so much more.
    I have a feeling that this year will be better than the previous one...
    Great work!

    nice street scene, I like the variety of means of transport in one shot.
    The colors make it really eye catching with the sky so attractive.

    Hi Ney,
    I had the satisfaction of being in Sao Paulo but only at the airport on my way to Buenos. I have tried to take some photos from the plane to mark Brazil on my map of countries photographed but my photos were not nearly as good as yours. I like very much the clarity and sharpness of your plane photos. Plus of course you know the area so you can tell which city it is.
    Lovely reportage,

    Ciao Carlo,
    very well spotted a "washing day" scene. The house seems to be quite aged which is always attractive for a photographer. The window had quite characteristic Mediterranean style. The two towels add a humorous aspect.
    Very well done!!

    Ciao Silvio,
    breath taking view! I like very much the multitude of the hills, there are so many layers here. The fog brings in a mystical atmosphere and a decorative aspect: it looks a bit as a work of artist. Great contrast of fragments which are clear and sharp with those which are covered in fog.
    Very impressive!!

    Hola Sergio,
    what a beautiful structure. So very impressive and I have never heard about it before!
    The cathedral is so rich and elegant. You took the picture from a very interesting angle which allows us to appreciate the amazing location of the church. The archway entrance below adds a surprising geometrical element here. Great variety of textures all across the frame.
    Captured in a wonderful light as well.
    Excellent work,

    hello Gert, Interesting both pictures, forty years old! In that time I was happy to make colourful slides. I have just found my slides from Paris from 1973, I must scan a few to see if they can be shown here. Maybe I could compare them with the new ones.
    In the Workshop picture I suppose you are right that the woman is his housekeeper. She has rather cheap cloth, less elegant as sari or kameez. What they can buy there? I see a lot of Colgate - toothpaste? i didn't know that this men's cloth is called dhoti. I saw quite a lot men dressed like this, but maybe not in Delhi or Bombay. I wonder what he is reading.
    One or two like it - hahaha.

    Hi Mesut,
    beautiful sunset photograph. Not only you have amazing light and colors of the nature but also you have taken the photo at a unique location. The dome seems quite extraordinary and it is set against a wonderful panorama in the distance. There seems to be slight fog hanging over ground in the distance which adds a feeling of mystery here. It feels for me more like an illustration for a fairy tale than an actual photo.
    Excellent work!!

    Hi Paul,
    I cannot find any words to describe my admiration for this photo.
    The colors of the sunset are breath taking. Excellent exposition, everything is just perfect.
    Great use of the silhouettes: people of course, palm trees and the little island on the horizon. They seem to be perfectly thought through and placed in the optimal positions in the frame. Sky is amazing, it includes as well some blue fragments which makes it feel even more varied and eye catching.
    Now I feel finally convinced that I want to visit Colombia :)
    Spectacular scene!

    Bonsoir Nicolas,
    fantastic capture! Very well spotted! The snow created a very unusual setting here, quite an extraordinary effect. Set against the snow we see two contrasting elements: a walker and a train in motion. Train is well lit meaning it must be quite dark outside. That means your exposition must have been just perfect.
    I like how you have placed the elements in the frame, it makes us feel a space between them. And the train brings in a feeling of warmth as well.
    Fantastic idea!
