    Hi John,
    I have recently taken several shots of this species in our Stewart Park. I was afraid to show it here though as I thought moderators may see it as too common. But indeed I don't recall seeing this species in Poland.
    Extraordinary quality of the picture. We can see the texture of the feathers or the feet. We can admire the subtle differences in the color tones. You have also captured it in a brownish setting which looks like a moor indeed. Beautiful picture, I really enjoy it.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Craig,
    wow this is very impressive and I would not guess it is Taj Mahal as it is lees recognizable from this angle. Very nice frontal symmetry.
    I like the light which added the diagonal shadows and beautiful polarized sky. Silhouettes of people do not disturb but allow to imagine well the scale.
    Excellent work!

    Hi Erhan,
    I like very much city arches. I have even created a theme where I gathered my arches CLICK HERE to see it. Not only I don't have this one in my collection but I have never seen it before, in fact I did not see many photos from this country at all so I am glad that you share this lovely presentation.
    Very well done!

    Hi Vasilis,
    beautiful reportage. I like the elegant narrow streets. Very well balanced exposition with both sunny and shaded areas preserving the details. I like the composition with the road in the foreground. There are plenty of attractive lines all over the frame which make the geometry very appealing.
    Very well done!

    Bonjour Jean,
    beautiful palace, I think I even have this lovely garden in my TE gallery. You had a great light here with slightly darker clouds which make a nice contrast with the well lit palace. Nice that you have included the column and also the flowers in the foreground. I like also the shades which add diagonal lines on the architecture.
    Excellent work,

    Bonjour Denis,
    this is so picturesque!
    Everything is perfect. First of all the POV allowed you to take in the whole view of the village with the context of the sea. The colors are fantastic, red roofs go well with the blue sea and sky and plenty of green vegetation. The tower seems quite unique and interesting and you have placed it perfectly 1:3 in the frame. Horizontally as well there are multiple layers which pleases the eye.
    Beautiful place and a master piece of photography,

    Hi Burak,
    I have lived in Los Angeles for a couple of years and so looking at your photo I started to wonder where exactly it is. My first bet is Venice Beach as I remember there were some facilities build there for skating, but my memory is fading.
    Great capture of the flying skater. Perfect sharpness, nice light, pleasant natural colors.
    Very well done,

    Hi Angshu,
    wow this is so beautiful. Uzbekistan is definitely on my list of places to visit! By the way I think you have a spelling mistake in the name of the country in the actual photo -which is impossible to repair unless you re-post it I guess.
    Never mind it though.
    I love the central symmetry here, great idea! You have thought it through very well with the dome behind being so close to the arch.
    Very impressive both architecture and your presentation,

    Hi Burak,
    I completely agree with you on Portugal being a wonderful country and having very friendly people. I had a pleasure to visit it couple of years ago.
    Great quality photo here. I like the fantastic sharpness with the waves splashing frozen in the air and the people clearly visible on the piers.
    Very well done!

    Ciao Lisa,
    I guess taking into account your profession this place must have been of interest. I think I would prefer to stop in the middle of nowhere especially with this red soil -the road must have look amazing. I remember driving in the American Southwest, even the road was amazing. The title of course is very provoking and somehow does not fit the charming little house, but I guess from outside appearance one cannot tell what happens inside.
    I like your reportage from this less traveled part of Australia, showing variety of aspects here.

    Bonjour Christiane,
    lovely spot, I really like it. I like very much the bench in the foreground. I use this trick from time to time. Bench adds a relaxing aspect to the view. Here it also has a nice shade which results in a pleasant effect.
    Beautiful weather day. Great spot to sit and enjoy the view!

    Bonjour Didi,
    beautiful swan portrait. Just last weekend I was in the park taking photos of the water birds like moor hen or coot. It is more challenging to take a good photo than one may think.
    Nice contrast here with good exposition at the same time.
    Very well done,

    Hallo Wolfgang,
    fantastic golden color tones all across the frame. I like how regular shape of the sun you managed to get here. I usually get a big burned blob. The silhouette of the ship makes a nice addition here. I like also the reflection of the light in the water.
    Great effect, very well done,

    Hi Fabiano,
    I just had a discussion with holmertz about treasures being stolen and taken to Europe...
    Beautiful little church and so nicely located at the beach and at the hills.
    So many years passed by and the Gold is still valued although nowadays other values are appreciated too like the beauty of this spot which cannot be stolen in any other way than by taking a picture of it :)
    Beautiful place,

    Ciao Silvio,
    very charming church. You captured it in a great warm light, it is so sharp we can see every detail of the wall surface. Interesting tight composition, it emphasizes well the church.
    Wonderful blue sky as a background!
