    Hello Pavle,
    The monastery in the valley is totally surrounded by trees when seen from this angle. The view creates a pleasant feeling and the towers provide fine contrasts to the green dominance. It's an original composition with excellent colours.

    Hello Krzysztof,
    I would be tempted to knock at this door even if I was not invited. Everything here is so neat and pleasant that almost anyone could feel welcome. As usual you have captured this in a tightly cropped photo with excellent colours.

    Hello Daniel,
    I have been here, but very long ago and have no clear memories of this place. Florence is a beautiful city and these buildings are no exception. I am a bit unsure about your choice of POV, showing the large empty grey area in the foreground. But the colours and clarity are great.

    Hello Stephen,
    That tower is fantastic and the relatively recent additions are not noticeable. Some of the other buildings are very nice too. As always I enjoy to see some people making the street look more lively and natural. The wires are slightly disturbing but there is not much to be done. After all they're part of the environment, so erasing them would be a waste of time and efforts.

    Hello Malgo,
    Neighbors again, but I don't think you noticed that ;-). This is a carefully made and interesting painting with some references on the medallions. Before I read the note I thought Douglass was actually Karl Marx! The cars are not so pretty but they are needed to explain the dimensions and the location of the wall.

    This is a very pleasant composition of the small boats resting by the empty beach and with a fine view of the town. The overcast sky has produced a nice light with fine colours.

    Hello Ryszard,
    I understand why tourists come to this pretty place, but nine times more visitors than locals sounds a bit too much. I wish at least they would all take photos as well composed and sharp as this, but probably they won't. This photo offers a good view (much better than in a selfie) and the colours and light are superb.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Takero,
    The faces are very expressive and intense, which makes them interesting to watch. The red, white and black dresses make the photo bright and colourful. The mild light is very attractive too.

    Hello Luis,
    Not as spectacular as some of your other photos from this area, but it is a very neat courtyard with beautiful pots and plants and fine details among the doors and windows. One obvious advantage of this photo is the excellently handled mild light which gives full justice to the colours.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Murat,
    It's a curious museum but probably interesting for a visit, but I guess it only shows the Cold War from one side. Probably there is nothing about the victims of McCarthyism. But certainly these imitations of Russian signs etc look better in a photo. It's a colorful and interesting picture, even a bit amusing.

    Hello Carlo,
    This is a fantastic and very attractive photo, looking like a desert in central Italy. The warm evening light has given you wonderful colors. I love the simplicity of the composition, mainly just two large areas of contrasting colours, and between them a house and a few trees. It's very elegantly made.

    Hello Kasia,
    I was just about to turn off the computer when I saw this, so I had to wait for the workshops too. This looks a bit like Australia or Nagorno-Karabakh at night, doesn't it? ;-) The main difference are the warm lights from the cars passing by in the darkness. The marvellously clear sky makes me think it was a cold night. But you are of course used to waiting patiently for perfect exposures no matter how cold it is. The workshop of the road reminds a lot of Afghanistan, which is fairly natural. I was surprised to see that this is not the first photo from Sost, but at least the first for 10 years.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello György,
    It's an architecturally interesting place and clearly well suited for a wide-angle photo. The man in the wide trousers and straw hat is more interesting than the tourists in the WS, and this photo also has the advantage of showing the sky. Otherwise the colour version is also nice, especially by giving us a closer look at the fine poster. But I guess you made the right choice of main upload anyway.
    Best wishes,
    Gert

    Hello Rob,
    It would be great to see a similar photo from above of the tower you showed a couple of days ago, but for that you would really need a drone, or at least a helicopter. But this view is stunning enough. This cathedral really looks a bit out of place on Manhattan, but it's a fine work of architecture, although I would have preferred something less medieval European. Did you take this through a window? In that case the sharpness and clarity are really impressive.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Danos,
    This is a view of the Acropolis I had never seen. I don't think the museum was ready when I was in Athens the last time, in 2009. Obviously it has just been raining and the sky is clearing up. The clouds look fantastic and are really the best feature of the photo, but the light is also very good with a kind of fresh clarity after the rain.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Angel,
    You have shown us many photos of narrow streets between white buildings, but this is different. The woman near the camera provides a good focal-point, and along with the two women further back she also gives good depth to the photo. Usually this is provided by bright flowerpots, which are missing in this place. I actually like the lack of strong colours and bright sunshine, A village like this has a great beauty also in a dull weather of December.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hi Danos
    This must be a famous sight judging by the visitors as the backdrop remains as main feature attracting the eye. One has to admire the workmanship and designs of those ancient Greeks in this wonderful picture. Very well thoughtfully composed - I bet you ordered the white cloud in the top to complete the composition!!!
    Congrats.

    Hi May
    A charming old village to wander in May, and it's always a joy to see a bench, not only when your'e out and about, but also in a photo. It's like an invitation to sit and contemplate what's around and what's being depicted. The composition is wonderful especially I love the low viewpoint. Something very pure in this image....
    Fabulous capture, Congrats.

    Hello Sergio,
    The towers are impressive and the other buildings are also very beautiful. This must be one of the most iconic city centres in all of Europe, so maybe it was a good idea to point the camera upwards, to avoid the crowds of tourists on the ground ;-). I like the well saturated but still perfectly natural colours.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
