    Hello Pavle,
    This is a photo I had missed. It is a very attractive composition with fine depth and nice yellow lines leading my eyes across the river. The buildings in the background are elegant and the light is exceptionally good.

    Hi Lisa
    A fabulous underwater imagery from your adventure and there's great feel of movement from the large school of fish wonderfully crisp, sharp and the clarity is second to none under this challenging circumstances!
    The metallic iridescence is stunning, indeed a real pleasure to view, and thks for sharing wit us. Congrats
    Best wishes

    Hello Frank,
    Poppies are definitely my favorite flowers. I usually see them a bit further south were they often line the roads or railway tracks, more rarely covering entire fields like here. Their colour is fantastic, especially along with the green leaves and stems. This is another fine photo from the rural parts of Rügen, a simple but very beautiful scenery far away from the cities. It's not a complicated photo. This kind of landscape doesn't need any complications.
    Cheers,
    Gert

    Hello Craig,
    These roofs should be teeming with activities, but I only see one or two persons (maybe). Perhaps this was a very hot part of the day. This is not only a very blue town, it also looks very congested. Where are the streets? Is there room enough for a car or even a rickshaw between the houses? I know the perspectives can play games with your eyes, but this really looks very dense. And I wonder what the neighbors think of the guy who painted his house pink. Traitor?
    Bets wishes,

    Hello Roland,
    A very nice photo from the height of summer. Judging from the flags it was not very windy on this hot day. The quay gives the view a fine depth and the woman in partly red, as well as the man in partly blue, provide nice dots of bright colours. The colours are generally very good and the strong light is well handled.

    Hello Lars,
    Except for the "beach" in the lower corner (and on the red boat) I don't see any people here, and yet this photo has a very lively character. The marina is very crowded and the city skyline is equally packed. It's nice view from a part of a hectic big city.

    Hello Barbara,
    This is a fine picture of this very famous pyramid. Those steps look very, very steep and I doubt that I would try to climb them. The pyramid looks nice enough from this distance and the crowds of colorful people contribute to the fine view,

    Hello Julitte,
    It's a very attractive view of the houses along the seafront. The nearest boat is well placed in the foreground and there are many other fine boats further away. The colours and light are superb.

    Hello Will,
    To me Cherbourg always reminds me of the New wave movie Les parapluies de Cherbourg. Maybe I should start thinking also of its clouds (that may soon make the umbrellas useful again). The seafront houses look fairly grey and dull, but the boats , the fine light, reflections and those clouds make this a pleasant photo anyway.

    Hello Alexandre,
    You made clever use of the strange light on this foggy day. The darkness, the fog and the concentrated lights from mainly the windows have created a peculiar atmosphere in yellowish tones. It is an interesting and quite expressive photo.

    Hello Karolina,
    It's a fine snap from the street. Lots of interesting things to watch and a nice inclusion of the shop-owner reading his newspaper. It's a good conversion to B&W and a very neatly cropped and framed photo.

    Hello Ghislaine,
    This is a very nice postcard with a fine view in two directions. You waited until the right moment to capture the boat making a bend into the next canal, just at the corner with the lovely tree and the terrace with more people. There is some beautiful architecture on the right side, including the tower. The light and colours are excellent in spite of the fairly dull weather.

    Hello Malgo,
    There is a slightly eerie atmosphere among the boats sleeping on the calm water beneath the rather heavy clouds. It's a nice photo but your story is rally more amazing. Walking about for more than a half hour in the pyjamas would be all right on a Greek island, but Lofoten...? Didn't you get terribly cold?

    There is a lovely light at the end of the aisle and that area is filled with fine, sharp details. I also enjoy the inclusion of some people closer to the camera beneath the pillars of the elegant cathedral.

    Hello Maciej,
    The red gondola gave you a perfect foreground for this photo of the beautiful palace. A green and a blue gondola are seen closer to the palace, adding to the very colorful scheme of this bright composition. There is a good balance between the nearest gondola, the palace and the trees along the shores.

    Hello Ourania,
    The lady in red (and blue) is a nice eye-catcher in this bright and sunny photo, but she gets some competition from the red door in the pink wall and the flags hanging across the yard (like Buddhist prayer-flags). The entrance to the church is in the shade but is still an obvious focal-point, partly thanks to the eagerness expressed by the red lady walking towards it.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Claude,
    This photo captures the excitement surrounding the competition very well. To me the hands stretched out and the man running beside the cyclist are the essence of the photo, more important for the composition than the cyclist himself. I also like the diagonal underscored by the long shadows and the white lines.

    Hello Burak,
    Beautiful, patient animals in colorful "dresses". They are well captured in beautiful light among some human activities at the foot of one of the great pyramids. It seemed to be a quiet day with not many tourists. Probably these days there are even fewer visitors, so life is tough for the owners of the camels.

    Hello Ana,
    The dog poses well and gave you a fine foreground. I would expect a dog like this, guarding sheep and goats, to be a bit aggressive, but maybe even an angry dog can be bribed with sandwiches. At least the scenery looks nice and wild.
    Kind regards,
