    Hi Stephen,
    I cannot stop watching your reportage from Munich.
    Here again such a wonderful interior!!
    I am very impressed. Nice idea for an asymmetric composition, it emphasizes well the beauty of the place.
    I admire Bavarians for taking such a good care about all the churches and landmarks.
    Great photo!!

    Bonsoir Jean,
    very well spotted but most of all prefectly exposed photograph. The diagonal foothills of the mountains are pleasantly decorated with some vegetation. The play of the well lit areas and deep shadows is very attractive. It also results in a great feeling of depth.
    Beautiful work,

    Czesc Malgorzata,
    zastanawiam sie jak by ten widok wygladal noca :)
    Jak wiesz mialem calkiem niedawno okazje byc w tym miejscu ale pomimo ze bylem tam trzy razy: nigdy nie wybralem sie na wieze...
    Ta bazylika jeste niestety troche za daleko od innych atrakcji i tylko wprawne oko jest w stanie zobaczyc znajome ksztalty. Bardzo chcialbym wybrac sie na Montparnasse Tower -bo jest na tyle blisko wiezy Eiffela ze wlasnie swietnie mozna ja stamtad sfotografowac...
    Ha widze tam u dolu schodow karuzele na ktorej jeszcze niedawno krecila sie moja Nadia :)
    Zapierajacy dech w piersich widok!!

    Hi Ike,
    I have to remember your reportage if I ever plan to get to Isle of Skye in the future.
    Beautiful wonder of nature. You had also a lovely light conditions -such a warm light focus on your main theme.
    Interesting idea to take it diagonally I suppose it may have been for practical reasons but the effect is very attractive.
    Great reportage!!

    Hi Federico,
    fantastic street scene! You have captured the man in the best possible spot with a nice pose and so well exposed! The subject is framed with the lovely characteristically shaped archway and its shadow from the bottom as well.
    The minarets in the distance add a nice touch too.
    Excellent work!!

    Czesc Piotr,
    macie prawdziwa zime! Czuc ten mroz w powietrzu na zdjeciu... Lekka mgielka i dominujacu bialawy odcien.
    Swietnie wybrany punkt widzenia, tylko jakos zawsze mi sie Piotrkowska kojarzyla z szeroka ulica jak Pola Elizejskie a ty raczej waska uliczka. Swietny efekt z lampami ustawionymi rowniutko, to pozwala poczuc glebie. Przyjemne dekoracje swiateczne. Moze wieczorem kiedy sie swieca warto byloby powtorzyc to ujecie?
    Kopula kosciola w oddali to cos na czy mozna zawiesic oko, cos charakterystycznego.
    Pamietam ten kosciol z telewizji na tym pacu przed nim czasem sa jakies koncerty czy wydarzenia.
    Piekne prezentacja z Lodzi!

    Hi Lars,
    this is such a beautiful spot! You show us so many little know picturesque places I have never heard before! Such a charming architecture both of the house and the church. The little street makes a pleasant turn, everything so elegant and well taken care off.
    Very attractive and well thought through composition,

    Czesc Malgorzata,
    dzis jestesmy sasiadami na glownej galerii TE :)
    Pomimo poznej pory.
    Juz wlasnie mialem zaczac rozczulac sie nad soba ze pomimo kilku wizyt w Paryzu nigdy nie zobaczylem tego interesujacego cmentarza ale potem przeczytalem Twoja notke i pocieszylo mnie ze widzialem Recoleta w BA :)
    W Paryzu natomiast jako Polak chemik bylem przy grobie Marii Sklodowskiej :)
    No ale grob Szopena tez by wypadalo kiedys odwiedzic...
    Trudne ale atrakcyjne swiatlo, chociaz aniol jakby lekko rozmyty, moze po prostu na wysokim ISO tak wyszlo.
    Pozdrawiam serdecznie,

    Hi Serghei,
    I must admit I am a bit surprised by this photo :)
    The lady has open arms indeed but in general this photo does not necessarily encourage people to visit Cyprus. I think Russians simply want to keep this paradise from themselves :)
    I have spent a lot of time while in Cyprus on a breathtaking sandy beach but I always wondered if it was a mistake, may be I should have visited those charming mountain villages... Seeing this photo I don't regret my decision :)
    Quite a funny contribution,

    Ciao Silvio,
    I wonder if it is the same tree which we all known from one of the most popular of your photos.
    Very impressive photograph: perfectly used silhouette of the tree. Wide angle makes all other elements unimportant and small. The tree dominates the whole world.

    Hi Costantino,
    the strongest point of this picture is of course very abundant snow, pleasantly decorating the city. The motif of the road works so well here, leading the eye to the centre. Except for modern structures we see also some Byzantine architecture. The flag adds a lovely touch and a confirmation that this winter landscape to unexpectedly Greece!

    Ciao Luciano,
    very interesting architecture, especially the uniquely shaped tower.
    The light was challenging but it didn't stop you from taking a great picture.
    I suppose December has scarce light and plenty of shade even around the noon.
    It seems you had a lovely ad photogenically fruitful trip this winter!
    Very well done,

    Hi Alexandre,
    beautiful sandy beaches but also photogenic rock formations! What a beautiful destination! It must be pleasure to walk around and relax taking photos.
    Wonderful well saturated colors. Lovely composition as well with the castle well placed against the green water.

    they are so Scottish! as their name also implies!
    Very photogenic animals! I think I haven't seen them before moving to the UK.
    Fantastic portrait, great details, lovely blurred background.
    We had them for a while in our park but they were moved elsewhere.
    My little daughter was feeding them with carrots :)

    Czesc Malgorzata,
    a wiec stad sie wzielo twoje milczenie :)
    Wydawalo mi sie ze wymienialas liste miejsc do ktorych kupilas niespodziewanie bilety ale jakos Paryz mi sie nie kojarzy... Czyzby to jeszcze bardziej spontaniczna decyzja? Tak czy owak swietny wybor: czasami szkoda czasu na chodzenie po muzeach kiedy jest pelnia lata a taka pogoda jak teraz jest swietna zeby spedzic wiecej czasu we wnetrzach -czy to opery czy muzeow.
    Mnie zona zostawila samego z Nadia i sobie spaceruje dzis po Bazylei jutro po Augsburgu a jeszcze pozniej po Norymberdze...
    Para mloda jest zawsze atrakcja, to zawsze fotogeniczny temat.
    Uchwycilas ich w ladnym momencie a w tle wielka orkiestra swiatecznej pomocy?...

    Hi Danos,
    this is a beautiful wide angle view of this famous courtyard. I like it very much: very well balanced exposition, perfect symmetry, nice light lit the dome pleasantly.
    Great reportage from London.
    I suppose for Greek people watching Parthenon marbles in British Museum is not necessarily pleasant...
