    Hello Paul,
    All three photos are in the "postcard" category, but very neatly composed and showing beautiful views. You used the trees perfectly as natural frames for the view of the quite attractive cathedral. The rather dark sky and dark hills create a fine background but in the city the light was still very good and allowed you a bright and clear photo.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hi Jean
    A thoughtful compo with lots of fresh green which is nicely counter balanced by blue and brown colours while
    the towers far and near certainly make for a great draw and impact viewed from this shooting point. Diagonal tonch of regimented row of vines leads us all the way into the full depth and the sunlight gives its subtle tones. I feel that the contrasty white boat contributes as a strong colour breaker. Excellent landscape shot, Congrats

    Hello Ryszard,
    An impressive view of the castle on the hill above the pretty buildings downtown. It's a ice composition, where the clouds play an important role, and the colours are beautiful.

    Hello Nicolas,
    A very attractive composition of the lovely bird standing in front of the round bales of hay and the forest behind them. The many tones of green and yellow are beautiful and as always I appreciate the simplicity of the photo.

    Hello Murat,
    The red shop front and the trees surrounding the small square make this look like quite an inviting place for a short rest. Those who originally built that house probably didn't imagine it would end up like this. But will anyone ever care to restore the building to its original look? At least it was worth a photo. The nicely framing trees and the people walking by were other good reasons for a shot.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hi Christiane
    A superb capture the way how the neat foreground and its vibrant colours attract the eye directing focus to the glorious building. Clarity, sharpness and the skyscape feature are spot on to clinch the shot. Lovely take, Congrats. TFS

    Hello Costantino,
    It's a nicely composed vertical photo giving us a glimpse of a souvenir shop, a staircase and a fine wall, and at the top the characteristic buildings. It's like a cut through the village with many views found in the same photo.

    Hello Mehrdad,
    I think Tehran has changed a lot since I saw the city a few times in the early 1970's (around 1350 of the Iranian calendar). But it was already then a very large city with a heavy traffic. I think the sky is not always so beautifully clear as in this photo. It's a well composed picture with fine colours. The street and the trees create good depth and the impressive tower is a very strong eye-catcher.
    Best regards,
    Gert

    Hello Kari,
    This could also have been from where I grew up in the Swedish countryside. Similar scenery and similar climate. It's a fine photo and with a nostalgic atmosphere for me, possibly exotic to those from further south.

    Hi Murat
    Good to see this old place, a street scene with bold colour palette on the old building's facade. I like the shadow detail and shade all lead to a pleasing capture, vigourised by the passersby. Congrats

    Hello Rob,
    What a great artistic work. Anyone will recognize this face immediately but we have never seen Anne Frank like this. I think it's a great idea to keep her memory alive by bringing her into the world of today, instead of having her become an untouchable saint in boring grey tones of little relevance to present days. But another question arises: Should a carefully made graffiti painting be "untouchable", or is it perfectly okay for others to put their usual tags on it?

    Hello Luciano,
    This is an an´musing and different kind of photo. I am sure these three ladies didn't dream of ending up on Trekearth. ;-) Nearly all kinds of human activities are interesting to watch, especially in such a nice environment as this. It's a well composed photo with the waterfall in the background creating a little bit of a drama.

    Hello Brenda,
    There is a lot of space and air in what may at first look like a piece of compact cityscape. There are also lots of colors and different kinds of designs, the gem of course being the green bridge. It would be easy to miss it when walking far below, and I am sure lots of Newyorkers are not aware of this fine little piece of architecture. Why on earth would anyone think of tearing it down, unless it's in a dangerously bad shape? It would be so much better to restore it and use it for an interesting purpose, as has been done with so many old industrial buildings.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    A froggy princesss need this diamond jewellery! Excellent structured abstract imagery by keeping it simple with emphasis on finer detail of the repetitive shapes. The sparkle is an added bonus to the colour scheme. Fine shot, Congrats

    Hello Jorge,
    I like the low perspective where the people who just climbed the stairs are seen against the light clouds, where they nicely complement the architectural details of the wall. It's a good combination of human touch and architecture.

    Hello Claude,
    A very nice view of the small town. The photo is taken from a good point where the trees give excellent depth along a slightly curving diagonal. There are lots of things to watch and there is a good balance between the most important features, such as the white boat, the castle on the hill and the tower to the right. The hilly, green scenery is most attractive.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Christiane,
    The statue of the angel balances the palace quite well. She is surrounded by a beautiful part of the garden and is seen against some very attractive dark clouds. The narrow road crates a nice and somewhat curvy lead up to the castle.

    Hello György,
    Three photos of people actually using their cameras to take photos of others, not themselves. What a novelty. None of these photos is the greatest you have ever posted here, but they are all nice snaps from the crowds watching the Szalamander, especially this one of the elderly man with at least two cameras and probably several extra lenses. How I hate the memories of the days when I carried a bag like that with all my equipment. ;-)
    Best wishes,
    Gert
