    Hi Lars,
    Lovely composition. The spider makes a nice foreground here while the cathedral is the main theme. I like also the presence of the Canadian flags, this is always a nice element which confirms the location of the photo.
    Quite a unique architecture.
    Excellent work,

    Czesc Ryszard,
    Swietna kompozycja, ten pomaranczowy budynek znakomicie sie prezentuje udekorowany drzewami palmowymi. Wyglada to super egzotycznie. Podoba mi soe bardzo cciepl kolorystyka tego zdjecia, pomimo ze nibe pokryte chmurami po prostu czuc goraca atmosfere.
    Bardzo atrakcyjna prezentacja.

    Hola Luis
    You have a great eye to always spot those charming corners. Lovely composition here with attractive architecture also decorated with plenty of vegetation. I admire the well balance exposition here with very subtle shadows, alldetails are well preserved.

    Ciao Silvio,
    This is a surprise indeed! Although I also noticed some bushes or trees started to bloom here in England and today we had a lot of snow and hail, actually first time this season so abundant that I could make a snowman with my daughter.
    Lovely composition with the blooming tree placed asymmetrically here. The central part is so warmly lit, it looks very attractive, and the sky was wonderful too.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Costantino,
    beautiful panoramic view of this harbour town. I like how people decided to crowd the houses on two hills leaving another one empty, may be it had unsuitable ground for building houses. Nice POC which allows us to see the waterfront with several charming houses and then the labyrinth of stylish houses to the top of two hills -both I believe with a church on top.
    Beautiful place, wonderful presentation,

    Czesc Aleksander,
    wiem ze to nie jakas niezwykla architektura ale za kazym razem kiedy jestem w Polsce obiecuje sobie wlasnie ze pochodze troche pomiedzy blokami z aparatem, no ale potem zawsze brakuje czasu. Jest w nich cos unikalnego, mozliwosc wypatrzenia oryginalnych geometrii tak jak to wlasnie zrobiles tutaj: swietna geometria w dodatku z mnostwem pomaranczowego rowniez w odbiciu co bardzo ozywia obraz,
    swietny pomysl gratulacje!

    Hi Ney,
    indeed this seems like a wonderful place for skiing and for photography!
    My first thought was that this is a less typical image of California, I guess most people relate the state to the beaches and are not even aware how diverse California is.
    Lovely presentation.

    Good evening Mesut,
    A nice two photos mini-series with the grandfather as a protagonist to both.
    Well captured moment, light and colors superbly rendered.
    The wooden hut façade, fruits on the branch and the pumpkin on left are beautiful objects added.
    Have a nice new week,

    Bonsoir Gildas,
    A marvelous light condition that allow such a beautiful result of the reflection. The smooth water surface mirrors perfectly the town houses that by itself looks as a charming place. Old buildings, the church and its bells-tower and more modern houses, mingle with each other's. Yet, the scene "framed" by the green forest on the hill behind.
    Super beauty rendered, bravo.

    Ciao Carlo,
    I love to photograph the arches in different cities. I have even created a theme "arches by Mariusz". I definitely have to visit this spot when I get to Florence. Great light here, I like how the deep shadow covers the foreground but leaving the arch perfectly lit.
    Very well done,

    Hi Rob,
    this building is probably one of the most recognizable in Amsterdam. Nice POV with the text. I have seen it before but from a distance. Here the proximity allows to appreciate the scale. But the highlight are here the people, tourists taking photos in all directions :)
    This is a nice continuation of the series with big famous inscriptions which you started with previous LOVE photo, I wonder what will be next?
    Very well done!

    doskonale pocztowkowe ujecie. Dokladnie tak jak lubie :)
    Obiekt jest na tyle daleko ze widac wspaniale polozenie a na tyle blisko ze podziwiac mozemy detale architektury. Znakomite swiatlo i kolory. Swietny punkt widzenia na tej samej wysokosci co zamek. No i widac jeziora w oddali.
    Doskonala praca! Nic dodac nic ujac!

    Hello Ataman,
    I like very much this scene and the fact that your minimal composition is so rich in drama. I like the colours and the silvery tint that dominates most of the frame. You captured a lot of lovely nuances through the grand play of light and shadow. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hello dear Takero,
    well, different cultures, different traditions, I'm glad we have both of them and many more in this world. This is a very spectacular picture and it's not only the many details and colours of the costumes that makes it so, it's also the lovely ladies and their festive moods and smiles. The sharpness you achieved is stunning, despite the soft background, we get a nice sense of context. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Ciao Carlo,
    portico ed alberi hanno fatto un meraviglioso contributo alla tua composizione tanto per la ripetizione ed il grafismo della vista reale quanto per l' irresistibile effetto artistico nei riflessi. Gradevole la presenza del signore ed il suo cane che e' appena percepita pero' nel riflesso. I colori sono davvero deliziosi e mi piace anche il modo confidente in cui hai gestito i contrasti. Complimenti e grazie!

    Hello Joginder,
    the people look very serious, they must be saying prayers and putting all of their hearts and minds into them. I like that our glance is drawn to the same focal point as theirs and they haven't noticed the presence of a lens so close to them. Despite the tight crop, we get a thorough idea about the wider setting too. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Bonsoir Nicou,
    I like very much your idea to place the intricate, natural pattern of the snowy tree across the foreground, partly hiding and partly revealing the landscape and the sky in the background. A lovely combination that favours both themes and is inspiring. I also like the subtle colours and the rhythm of so many diagonals. Congratulations and thank you!

    Ciao Silvio,
    il complesso di architettura apparentemente antica e solida fa' uno sfondo molto interessante e grafico, pieno di angoli ma anche di chiari dettagli. Mi piace molto come hai posizionato il sentiero, rendendolo un elemento importante ed invitante. E' superba l' idea di mettere i brillanti colori e segni della primavera contro lo sfondo scuro. Complimenti e grazie!
