    Hello Chris,
    It's a very attractive installation, quite well known by now. The sky is spectacular enough for my taste (I mean, you don't always need to have everything purple or orange for a photo like this). For my taste the people on the beach make up perfectly well for some lack of bright sky. The low perspective is perfectly all right anyway.

    Hello Sergio,
    A very nice photo from Prague, looking much more idyllic than I would have expected. It's a beautiful square and the buildings look well maintained (or restored). They are nicely painted and the colours generally are very attractive. As always in this kind of photos the people animate the view.

    Hello Ourania,
    Today we are neighbors on the site. This is a fine photo with excellent light and a well balanced composition with a nicely decorated well in the foreground. The few persons adorn the view of the building with the staircase neatly framed by the trees. You handled the bright light very well.

    Hello Pavle,
    There's not much for vegetarians here, but the sausages and other kinds of meat probably taste deliciously. You show these traditional dishes in five very good and colourful photos, nicely presented.

    Hello Krzysztof,
    This is an original composition from Malta. The wooden balcony is so typical of the island that it can be regarded as an icon of Malta, but the large advertisement to the right is very different. Together they form an unusual composition with bright colors and interesting details.

    The clouds were dark but it only makes the photo more dramatic. The huge steep rock is quite impressive and the ferry complements the view well.

    Hello Pierre,
    The church is elegant and I quite like the grey dominance of the photo on this cloudy day. Some green, blue and red details and the several different tones of grey make the photo surprisingly bright. The fine light contributes to that effect.

    The beautiful old church is situated by an idyllic road thorough the village. The contrast with ordinary houses makes the view of the tower very pleasant. Your photo ha excellent colours and clarity and is well balanced.

    Hi Lucas
    Love the clarity, angled light and deep polarised blue sky while retaining good level of colour, depth and detail with lots more supporting props around leading
    to point of focus on the tower. A pure joy to look at - easy on the eye compo pleasantly captured, Congrats

    Hi Murat
    For me, a fine image in there no doubt more relaxing and pleasant to go shopping here with the people there filling the frame along the lines of the shop. A very strong, colourful and interesting image. The woman's eye connection really does add to the image....
    A fine capture of street life. Well done.

    Hello Chris,
    A good composition from just before the blue hour. There are two very distinct lines of the quay cutting deep into the photo and the distant horizontal quay full of buildings and lights. The sky has a fine blend of blue and purple tones and the distant lights are perfectly reflected in the water.
    Best wishes,
    Gert
    PS Your camera and probably your skills have developed considerably since your Chinese journey in 2000.

    Hello Paul,
    Indeed a peaceful bit of fun flying kites at sunset. The yellow light from lamps are well matched by the last traces of sun rays hitting the clouds here and there. This looks far away from the tourist crowds, but if the country really gets peace things may change. War has been going on since I was a teenager but I don't remember any reports from when it started. Maybe that says something about news reports from South America in those day, probably it says more about what mattered to a European teenager with his head full of the Beatles and Rolling Stones and not much else. But you captured a good atmosphere here in a very well exposed photo.
    Best regards,
    Gert

    truly stunning work here, fantastic vibrant dynamic image that just bounces off the screen and achieved with a fair degree of skill to be sure. the sun flare is well controlled, the built up density in the long shadow is very striking and you consistently turn in great work but this is up with your best for me. congrats

    Hello Ourania,
    You captured a dramatic moment full of vigour and movements and the light is wonderfully managed. The choir of women with their red head-cloths balance the composition perfectly and create a strong contrast to the leading characters. From a modern, strictly financial point of view it sounds like a waste to spend one year preparing three performances. An American producer would hardly accept that kind of non-profit attitude ;-).

    Hello Silvio,
    It's good to see that this beautiful church has not been lost. After some restoration has been done the red and white tape can be removed and people can once again admire the interior. It's a delightful photo of the church which from here looks totally unharmed. The light falls beautifully on the fašade and tower and the persons outside animate the view.

    Hello Rob,
    This bridge obviously has a strong presence in modern American culture. possibly lust as much as the more famous Golden Gate, and this is one kind of cultural expression, even though the original message (if there was any) is hidden beneath newer layers of graffiti. We can see the hommage to Prince, soon there will be something else. It's a naturally framed painting anyway and well spotted.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
