    Hello Murat,
    The cat seems as a soldier or guard whose job is to stand and keep watch over the shoes display. A sentry cat...
    I would also not resist and take such a photo, nicely done.

    Hello Piotr,
    The lit monastery atop the hill stand as a torch in the darkness prevailing the mountains scenery. Looks a bit after "blue-hour" time, but came out fairly good.
    I just wonder if you set the White-Balance as AWB or cloudy (or else), since some "sky" parts seems with dark corners, can you disclose about?
    Have a nice new day.

    Wonderful bright morning sight of the old square with cafe's and restaurants alongside the old houses, Christiane.
    The architecture design is marvelous. The compo. is a bit too saturated to my humble opinion - nevertheless an attractive scene.

    Bonjour Philippe,
    Chosen a good perspective with teh leading road up to the castle. Show nicely its tower and edifice in a well allocated pic. space.
    Surprisingly I do not see the typical cylindrical-turrets as in many other French castles / chateau.
    Au revoir,

    Good morning Wolfgang,
    Youngsters tend to find unique ways to enjoy just a simple view from the castle old walls. Nice taken the moment, the river down bellow looking large and impressive as well.

    Nice attraction with the canal and lockers, Lars - I see at least one person with a camera mounted on a tripod, and others show interest around thee.
    Good view beyond, and the Chateau on left.
    A combined view with DOF and light well managed.

    Hello Lars,
    You are showing us a unique view when the lock is operating. I like the sense of depth and the green grounds. The group of boats waiting for the water level to adjust is quite a spectacle to the public, it seems.

    Hello Ourania,
    It's an interesting view of this chapel at an unusual place. I like how the walkway provides a leading line to the chapel. The lady walking back adds dynamism and romanticism. It must be quite an ordeal to get to the chapel in inclement weather. I also like the evening hues in the sky.

    Hello Stephen,
    What a coincidence, after you critique an opera house photo of mine, I come across an opera house photo of yours. This one is quite elaborate. I like the little bit of red from the bus on the right balanced by the hot pink clothes of the ladies on the left.
    Regards,

    PS. You were right about lens correction of my photo. I tried but found out I would have to lose a significant chunk, so left it alone.

    Hello Jorge,
    A tax to cross the state border? What an absurd idea! This looks quite undeveloped, did he find an office to pay his tax? B&W suits this photo, since the place doesn't seem to have changed since the 1950s.

    Nice B&W photo of these stairs, I am thankful for the bannisters because I would have vertigo looking all the way down; I'd have to hold on tight. Excellent sense of depth, well done.
