    Hello Craig,
    This is also a fine view where the modern buses and the blue things, whatever they are, capture most of my attention, more actually than the traditional Clock Tower. The red car is almost as good as a lady in red. There's a very nice long view of the street, all the way up to the green hill.
    Have a nice weekend,

    Hello György,
    I had expected you to stay away from the site longer than just a few days. It's nice to see you here again so soon. I found Bratislava a very photogenic city last year, especially slightly away from the centre, This seems to be right in the centre but you avoided the most touristic view. It's an excellent capture of different people meeting under the shelter. I like that the man with the black umbrella is just stepping into the photo, so the other men's looks become the most important feature. The B&W tones are very goo, with nice and strong contrasts.
    Best wishes,
    Gert

    Hello,
    A brilliant portrait of the nun with a brilliant reflection in the car. You made a wonderful conversion to B&W. This is a superb photo with its roots in classic photography,

    Hello Serge,
    It's an interesting photo of a kind of art exhibition I didn't know anything about. I thought this was created by nature in a way that could be seen as artistic just by chance, so I am surprised to read the note. It is also a well taken photo which has captured the intentions of the artists well.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Pierre,
    A simple but fine view towards the sea with the lighthouse standing between two other buildings with perfectly matching colours. In spite of the differences of style the three buildings go very well together. I also like the good light and very pleasantly mild colors.

    Hello Roland,
    Nice shoes for sure, but also nice reflections which show something else than what we see "in reality". An interesting composition cleverly cropped.

    Hello Christiane,
    A nice photo in a pleasant environment. I like how the dogs and persons are spread out along the quay. I see seven reasons why a moderator might want to delete this, because the dogs obviously belong to someone ;-(. My only objection would be that the blue tone seems rather strong.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Malgo,
    Nice photos with beautiful flowers and serious people silently remembering something which happened half a century before they were born.
    Now you have been home for two months. Are you preparing your next journey? When will you go to Albania? ;-)

    Hello Silvio,
    Another excellent composition. I love the curve of the hillside which divides the photo in two parts with the ancient castle placed between the two areas. It's a delightfully uncomplicated but elegant photo, which would still have been less attractive without the two trekkers wearing red.
    Kind regards,

    A beautiful house looking very well maintained, or well restored. There are lots of fine details and you found a good, slightly elevated POV for this very straight and neat photo.

    Hello Rob,
    You found great reflections in this well polished skyscraper. I would guess that this photo captures a lot of the essence of Boston, a modern city with roots going a fairly long way back in US history. I like that you included the life in the street with its nice atmosphere of summer.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Lars,
    So the two of you are traveling together this time too. It's nice to have company. This is a great view of downtown Boston, a city of which I don't know much except that it's among the most liberal and I guess pro-Democratic in the USA. I see areas near the water that could possibly look a bit European. There is a fine collection of skyscrapers in the central part. They seem to keep the windows clean in this tower. It's a very sharp and bright photo.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    This is probably the most beautiful home a goat ever had. It's a nice and amusing photo with fantastic stone-carvings.

    I love the background softness and the charming little character of the puppet full of bold colours and indeed a photographer's paradise for its simplicity and beauty. You took full advantage of it with superb result and thks to your brief narrative. Very eye candy shot, Congrats.

    Hi Luis
    That's feast of colour no doubt, as the neat buildings really strike the eyes as if each is trying to outdo one another signifying the contemporary with historical creating a clash of style between the age and style of the architecture. The modern one is just square or oblong boxes but the olde somehow wins for me.......
    A very well observed and captured, Congrats.

    Hi John
    Your shooting angle echos the wonderful architectures of the proud looking galleon with the masts reaching out the sky. Even though the weather was not on your side, she steals the show boosting the shot with band of warm light across the sky lends the extra oomph. You grabbed the moment beautifully Congrats, TFS

    Good framing how the reeds lead the eye right through to the distant shore backed by reasonably good detail, colours and contrast. Bit of golden sheen makes this so much better unfolding the nature beauty before your eyes, Congrats

    Hello Takero,
    A very nice and interesting photo of the woman's beautiful dress. I am so sorry to hear about your lost luggage, but did you really pack your cameras in the luggage? How could you? I do hope you get your pack back very soon.
    Kind regards,
