    Hello Daniel,
    The empty chairs make a funny impression on this rainy day. They create a quite nice pattern and are well reflected in the wet tiles. Behind them most people have remarkably colorful rain-clothes that brighten the view considerably. It's a fine and slightly different kind of photo from Venice.

    Hello John,
    I see that Paul has described this building and the surroundings in detail. I only spent two days in Brussels 50 years ago, so I don't know the city at all. This is in any case an impressive building with a beautiful garden and a glimpse of an interesting glass building behind the trees. You show this from a good perspective with very nice colours and light.
    Kind regards,

    Hello John,
    Are you sure he wasn't waiting for the bus, to get away from it all? The sign seems to indicate that the driver will stop upon a request. Well, probably you are right that he was just enjoying life while waiting for customers. It's a very nice photo of the kind that makes the photographer and his "subject" both happy. Besides, there are many nice blue details to match the grocer's clothes.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Luis,
    I was in Rovinj a few years ago, towards the end of the season, but my experience was different from yours. Even in September I found it extremely touristic, packed with souvenir shops and very little intended for the locals. It was still one of the prettiest towns I have seen, with a magnificent location, and you have captured the colourful atmosphere of this narrow lane very well.
    Kind regards,

    Hi Mariusz
    A very well composed, exposed and captured interior shot of this beautiful religious setting with interest throughout. That's truly amazing and i just really cant imagine; underground salt mine and a church, salt sculpture works and even the central chandeliers display are sculptured of salt crystals!!

    You managed the low light condition really well bringing the scene to life and stand out with very good sense of depth minus the digital noise. A super capture from this location, hope they don't have a damp problem, Mariusz. Fabulous lens work and thanks for sharing.
    Best wishes

    Hello Serge,
    This is an extremely catchy and attractive photo. The bright red buildings contrast marvelously with the green grass and the slightly grey sky. The sharpness, saturation and clarity are really first class.

    Hello Will,
    I saw in John's critique that "grittiness" is the correct English word to describe this, so I'll use it as well. You combine a regular tourist photo with a social study in quite an unusual way (at least for TE). I suppose the Granada tourist board won't like this photo, but I do. You follow a tradition of great candid street photography that is usually found in galleries and this books.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Krzysztof,
    This is not beautiful, but it is a good photo and the very dilapidated wall has a certain charm. I like the combination of green straws, grey plaster and red bricks and the nicely balanced composition.

    Hello Silvio,
    This is a beautiful but rather unusual castle, looking like a mixture of fortress and cathedral. It is a remarkable building with an attractive foreground. The colours are well saturated and the light is very good.

    Hello Malgo,
    You are like a cat with nine lives, of which you surely must have used some already. ;-)
    The colours of this photo are not quite as attractive as in yesterday's photo, but the scenery is just as exciting and impressive. Maybe after all the note is more interesting than the photo today.

    This is a very nicely composed photo with a beautiful view of the garden and its abundance of bright colours. The two persons to the right are nicely included. Even though they are so small they make a great contribution to the composition. I like the clarity and fine contrasts very much.

    Hello Paul,
    This photo really reminded me of places you have shown from Chile, so I was not surprised to see the reference in the note. I am sure I would also like a town like this. In fact Sicily is fairly high on my list of places I should see. This and WS #2 are both excellently composed photos and maybe I slightly prefer the WS, but it's a hard choice. They both have fine foregrounds and perfectly exposed views of the very interesting town.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Angel,
    A nice photo from this pretty village. The weak light of what is possibly early morning just barely allows us to see the small white buildings and there is still an attractive haze among the hills. I like the pale light and soft colours of this photo.

    Hi Gert
    What colour coincidental we have from this ordinary mundane situation making it sing that demands a closer look and that's where a smart photographer's eye comes into play. An eye candy abound of attractive strong elements around where human interest always makes it work together. Great capture of this lively place. Congrats
