    Hello Kari,
    This looks like great fun and it probably is, but cross country skiing is a lot more quiet and environmentally friendly. But in the photo we don't hear the noise and can just enjoy the fine tall trees and the sun seeping through the branches. It's a very good exposure and a beautiful view of so much clean snow.
    Best wishes,
    Gert

    Hello György,
    This view is from high enough to give me a slight sense of vertigo just looking at the photo, but I suppose I would feel safe enough out there to be able to enjoy the surroundings without fear. It would have been hard for enemy forces to get near this place undetected. The view is terrific. You solved the choice of colour or b&w by showing it halfway between. The ws are interesting too, but this is definitely the most stunning photo.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Neyvan,
    The water provides a perfect mirror for the grey and green mountain. The clear light contributes greatly to the beauty of the scenery and you balanced the photo well.

    Hello Klaudio,
    So at least you send the occasional ray of light into this darkening site. This is a photo of very good light and warm colours of the sand and the huts. The two persons walking their dogs just by the water make a nice feature.

    Hello Benny,
    I was here 40 years ago. Although I remember the temple quite well I don't remember much of the surroundings, but there seems to be a fairly dense jungle which provides a superb and exotic background to the many stupas. I like the slightly yellowish tone of the photo and the well chosen title.

    Hello Ourania,
    The man is standing in a small area of very good light. His clothes and his bag add three tones of blue to the already rich variety of "blues" of the sea and the sky. It's a very attractive composition with a good atmosphere and a fine light.

    Hello Murat,
    It would be strange to walk out of here without a photo. The composition sort of comes naturally, but is nevertheless very attractive. You exposed it well, with a good light inside and outside. It's all right for a president to be just a half, considering that the present one is not even a tenth.

    Hello Paul,
    I remember flying over South African cities during apartheid, where I could see from the air the colour of the skin of people living far below. Paved streets, large villas, a pool in every garden = light skin. Dirt roads, small huts packed tightly together, no pools = dark skin. I get a similar impression here, where class differences seem built into the city views. Small brick buildings on the hillsides = poor people, tall buildings in the central areas = middle to upper class people. There are probably areas with large villas with pools for the really rich. It's interesting to learn that they have now managed to bring down the crime rate and slowed down the drug trade which I suppose grew out of these differences of living standards. Now Medellín seems to be even safer than Malmö and other Swedish cities which have been completely taken over by criminal Muslim gangs according to well informed American media. ;-)
    Another interesting set of photos accompanied by an interesting note.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Lousat,
    There are lots of nicely matching colours here, and the dying leaves surrounding the window are attractive on their own. It's a simple composition but a very well spotted view which resulted in an attractive and quite artistic photo.

    Hello Luis,
    I would have expected a neat and pretty street like this in a small town on one of the Norwegian islands, but not quite in a relatively big city. It looks very nice and the wooden buildings are very cosy and well kept. You were also lucky to have fine weather and you handled the pleasant light and colours perfectly.

    Hello Serghei,
    An interesting building with a remarkable location. The many lights create a sense of action and excitement in the night and also balance the composition perfectly. The streetlights and the illuminated temple are nicely connected by the green lights lining the steep staircase. It's a well composed photo and it's perfectly exposed.

    Hello Jorge,
    This gate is legendary and the walls are impressive. Even then, in spite of the gate's important place in history, the tourists brighten the photo which could have been dull without them, mainly because of the bad weather. Now we have a picture combining history with modern life and colours and several focal-points.

    Hello Ike,
    The line of pink flowers creates a fine screen between the lawn and the lake. In the background the green hills to the left are nicely balanced by the blueish hills partly covered in the haze. It's generally an attractive view and the colours are pleasantly mild on this cloudy day.
    Kind regards,
