    Hi Costantino,
    lovely church in Byzantine style, one of my favourite.
    The rainy weather is quite depressing but it works quite surprisingly in a photo from Greece which most of us relate to sunny days.

    Hi Chris,
    stunning view. Very well preserved ruins. It must have been spectacular when it was intact!
    I had the pleasure to visit some spots in Turkey but although this is one of the most touristy places in the country -it was a bit out of range. I thought I will do it next time -but with the current climate it becomes more and more distant to me.
    Great composition, by taking few steps back you made the people into scale markers and the crowd does not disturb anymore, plus of course having some context in the foreground makes it so much more interesting,
    Excellent work!!

    Hi Sam,
    lovely double portrait. I wish my daughter would pose for me that patiently, I suppose if I promise here a reward she may get motivated. The colorful costumes of the girls adds a nice touch here although I see that the T-shirt of one of the girls seems to be less traditional showing a scene from cartoon.
    Great capture!

    Hi Serghei,
    very attractive rock formations, the white color and the shape makes them to stand out of the picture. It goes so well with the blue background.
    Fantastic colors of nature I like the blue green surface of the water.
    Beautiful place,

    Ciao Carlo,
    very attractive geometry. You have spotted it very well. I like the fence which stretches from the gate to the centre of the image. You had a great light too which adds pleasant shades, charming sly, and a spectacular view on the horizon.
    Excellent composition,

    Hi Ourania,
    very impressive effect with the wet pavement making such an interesting foreground here. You have benefited from the abundant water and some sunlight at the same time. In England if it rains it usually is quite grey so the light is not optimal for photos.
    Great framing here, very well used play of the lights, shadows and reflexes.
    Great work!

    Hi Paul,
    wow, this is really so beautiful! I don't recall seeing this old town from this POV. Very well selected, it allowed you to squeeze in so many attractive buildings, some of them being recognizable even for me who never been there.
    Fantastic foreground as well with people seemingly enjoying the warmer days. We can see them sitting on the square in colorful clothes, I like also the little tour boat.
    Amazing place, I have to remember it. I do hope to visit Belgium in the matter of 1-2-3 years but I am not sure if visiting plenty of beautiful towns -very attractive to me would be a bit boring to my little daughter. So in the end, even if I get there I would need to cut some attractions perhaps visit only one of the beautiful towns :(

    Excellent work,

    Hola Sergio,
    what a beautiful landscape! I like very much the extraordinary rock formations, the texture of the mountains is very particular, very unique. The green water of the reservoir adds so much beauty here!
    Very attractive scenery, skillfully presented!

    Hola Luis,
    how is it possible that I have never seen this beautiful cathedral but hundreds of photos of the building which I can see further in the distance.
    I am glad that you show it. You had a fantastic light conditions over there with the sky in particular being very attractive, The red color of the temple stands out here.
    Very impressive structure and an excellent presentation of it.
    This looks like a very photographically fruitful trip!!

    Hi Rob,
    very interesting reportage from this modern art installation. What strikes me at first is that the material is heavily corroded. I think I prefer the mirror-polished surfaces like the one of the famous bean in Chicago. I wonder if corroded was cheaper?
    Nevertheless the shape is quite nice. My guinea pig would love it...
    I like this perspective from a distance,

    Hi Ike,
    I had the pleasure to walk around this monument as well.
    Most of all an amazing location! I like your POV very much, it looks completely different than in most photos I have seen before.
    The presence of people works nicely here: those who stand on the monument allow us to imagine the scale of this place.
    The weather was dark but the sky contributed a lovely effect, and so the final result is very attractive,
    Very fruitful photographically trip!

    Hi Sasha,
    you are right the river near where I live is quite dirty as well :(
    Nevertheless boats always work quite photogenically.
    This one here nicely diagonally crosses the frame.

    rzeczywiscie taka sceneria ma w sobie cos urokliwego. Ciekawa kombinacja ludzi korzystajacych z plazy i oryginalnie ulozonych skal.
    Udalo Ci sie uchwycic ludzi w interesujacych pozach co bardzo dodaje uroku fotografii. Z ogromnym zainteresowanie sledze Twoj reportaz z Bulgarii.

    Hi Craig,
    beautiful architecture, very impressive and so empty around! The style feels quite unique. It reminds me few other places but is different.
    The girl of course adds a lovely touch here, she bring some life to the scene. In fact my photos wherever I go recently are with a little girl in the foreground as well but I cannot show them here :)
    Great perspective I like the suitable distortion also always a bit more pronounced in the vertical format.
    I can't believe you didn't show it before!
    This one really encourages me to visit India...
    Excellent work!

    Ciao Silvio,
    beautiful spot, very good choice for the blue hour photography. The sky has the perfect color and the buildings are very well lit, they feel so warm and their color goes very well with the blue of the sky.
    Nice use of the fountain the foreground. I would may be cut away a bit of the foreground although the pavement adds a nice touch as well.
    Very well done,

    chwile mnie nie ma a tu juz caly reportaz z Lublina, miasta ktore choc stosunkowo blisko mojego rodzinnnego miasta to jednak mi zupelnie nieznanego, troche z powodu kiepskich polaczen w tamta strone.
    Twoje zdjecia bardzo zachecaja do odwiedzin w Lublinie.
    Bardzo zadbana, elegancka architektura w pieknym stylu. W zasadzie nie mialem okazji chyba zbyt wielu fotografii z Lublina widziec tak wiec poznaje swiat znowu dzieki Twojej galerii.
    Piekne kolory pomimo smutnej pogody.
    Bardzo atrakcyjna fotografia,

    Bonsoir Christiane,
    beautiful capture of this very famous spot. I didn't have a chance to visit it yet but it is as well very high on my list of places to visit.
    A bit pity that the foreground was not lit brighter, some more sunlight would make it more full of joy and color, but nevertheless it is so impressive and the carriages certainly add a lot of charm here.
    I have finished moving but now I spend time decorating the house :) so still not too much time for TrekEarth and probably not too much money left for travel :(
    I will think of something though :)
    Kind regards,

    Bonsoir Nicolas,
    extraordinary final effect thanks to amazing light conditions. Very well exposed. I like the presence of the strong light on the surface of the water. Also the clouds or is it a fog, add to the mystical atmosphere.
    Excellent capture,
