    Hi Murat
    I think this chestnut vendor is too shy of your lens but even without his eye connection, the stuff on display and the bold colours clearly outweighs that. Excellent placement, clarity and good control of the light of an excellent piece of doc and street photography. Congrats

    Hi Costantino
    Red sky and the heart of mother nature! - a peaceful image that evokes a special atmosphere enveloped by the brilliant evening tones and shades with minimal foreground. Simply a delightful snap one to be proud off competently shot with excellent result. A fine lens effort, Congrats. tfs

    Hi Ryszard
    Love the striking warm colours, set off against blackness of the night with awesome star burst effect that just seems to add a sharp contrast to the whole shot. The glowing building is simply delightful and credit to your light control. Fine shot, Congrats

    Hi Christiane
    A dynamic compo the way the vineyards lead through the scene into the far end and what a lovely place this looks with its beautiful patterns. There are refreshing colours too, strong on detail with speck of vivid colour of the hut holding the eye firmly there. Indeed an appealing and peaceful landscape so well taken. Congrats, TFS

    Hi Piotr
    A lovely composition benefited from the side warm lighting & shadows, It kind of invites you to look around to the brilliant snow scene with the skiers' treks add interest and lead in which also lends the picture greater depth. This is a grand shot with excellent colour saturation, wonderful clarity & contrast. Delightful to view, Congrats

    Hi Burak
    It's still a fine bird-eye-view shot even without sky and horizontal line, lovely exposure attained, good natural color tones and contrast. Indeed a pleasure to view on which i find the side lighting lends a cutting edge. Excellent work, Congrats TFS

    Hello Costantino,
    The red and yellow nets are very nicely given the foreground in this fine composition. They are well placed where the quay makes a curve, which gives the photo a pleasant elegance. Along with the lamppost and the boat the nets form a triangle that give a character to the composition. The mild colours are very appealing.

    Hello Ana,
    This is also a terrific work of urban art. It reminds me a lot of Banksy, who is maybe the icon of most urban graffiti artists. It is well made, amusing and quite beautiful. I don't mind the car so much. It rather melts into the environment and, along with the man, it makes us understand how gigantic this painting is.

    Hello Angel,
    Already in early May the water seems to have been warm enough for a swim. Maybe the girls were so fascinated by the sunset that they forgot about the water. This is a beautiful view you have captured with perfect colours. The gentle waves rolling onto the beach and the two silhouettes in the water are superb details of this fine composition.

    Hello Manuel,
    It's impossible not to think of Don Quixote when seeing this photo.The windmills are very picturesque and with the castle in the background the view is spectacular. You were also blessed with a magnificent cloud hanging just over the castle. It's a very well composed photo with superb depth and beautiful colours.

    Hello Achim,
    Think of a country far away which most people can't find on the map, and you have probably been there. I found this photo by coincidence. It's not spectacular but the buildings are very nice and tidy and the tropical light is well handled. I find it fascinating partly just because it is such an unknown place.

    Hello Piotr,
    The sunset has painted the mountain in beautiful colours. The scenery as such is fantastic, as in many other of your photos, but I have rarely seen this magnificent light before. Several diagonal lines give a structure to the composition.

    Hello Silvio,
    Another beautiful medieval village on a hillside. In this photo I am most of all impressed by the light, which has given a beautiful slightly hazy yellow tone of the buildings. The dark triangle in the foreground creates a distinct contrast.

    Hello Malgo,
    Dark skin shaded from bright light causes problems for photographers, but you managed to keep his facial features reasonably well visibly. You had no problems in capturing the bright colours of the many bikinis hanging from the green umbrella. This kind of very wide beach in the centre of a big city doesn't appeal much to me. And how could it possibly be the sexiest beach in the world when not even topless is allowed? ;-)
    Kind regards,

    Hi Rosemary
    Gorgeous, the colour is bang on, yes the vivid red saltish water is real and it is a strange sight when you see it in person i am sure. The composition is wonderful works best here, I think I never tire of seeing shot of this nature beauty, good detail throughout which is subtly exposed particularly I love the foamy ripples that you managed to capture. It's just breathtaking indeed, coupled with the awesome contrast to blue sky, a shot looks out of this world......
    and great too that the vehicle makes it work!
    Congrats :)

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    This is a beautifully handled glimpse with a perfect light and an undisturbing background. I like the woman's natural posture as she was unaware of your camera. I also very much like the fine tones of her skin and the balance of her red hat against her pink dress.

    Hello Eleu,
    I guess this area would do well for a forthcoming movie about fighting the Islamic State. Any desert is fairly similar to another desert. The ripples of the sand are fascinating, or at least they were until your footsteps damaged the fine pattern behind you. It's a very nicely balanced composition of 2/3 sand and 1/3 sky.

    Hello Rosemary,
    This is a photo that really jumps at us already among the thumbnails. With such fabulous colours it can't be missed. The brilliantly blue sky matches the tones of the salt, pink gradually turning purple. It's a beautiful but also informative photo, accompanied by an interesting note.

    Hello Bev,
    I don't really see the snake's head, but I'll take your word, or that of the Vikings, for it. By the way, in modern Swedish "orm" means any kind of snake. But who cares about snakes in such a fine scenery, possibly perfect for trekking? I guess walking across the snake's head could be rather windy. I like the fine light and colours and the roughness of the rocks.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
