    Hello Jean,
    The trees are beautifully reflected in the quiet pond and I appreciate that we don't see much of the "real" trees. To my mind that makes that reflections more interesting. This looks like a generally nice park and as for the photo you did well to include a narrow slice of lawn as a frame at the bottom.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Bev,
    I think you had no choice but to make this in B&W. It's all about lines and curves and the patterns they create. I imagine there were photo opportunities of different kinds found everywhere. I hope you also had time to visit the great cathedral nearby, but maybe the railway station was more photogenic, and had a better light inside.
    Best wishes, and congratulations on this important day ;-),

    Hello Pavle,
    This is a very attractive composition with fantastic colours. I love the combination of pink blossoms, green plants and orange buildings. Your neighbor has a beautiful and very well maintained yard.

    Hello Serge,
    It's a nice composition of a man in white against a white background. What we see of the lawn makes an attractive triangle in the lower corner. The tents are well placed along a diagonal.

    Hello Silvio,
    It's a charming village, and just for a change it is not situated on top of a hill with a view of the surroundings. But like many other villages in your region it is built in the manner of a cubistic painting. I love the uniform grey walls, the beautiful light and the perfect sharpness.

    Hello Lars,
    I haven't been inside this church for many years, but maybe I should pay it a visit when the weather makes photo excursions at home more attractive. It's within easy walking distance from my home. You did well to include the entire spire and a fair amount of ground. The exposure is perfect and the clouds are quite magnificent.

    Hello Claude,
    With the conversion to B&W you created a smart and elegant composition of strong contrasts, human elements and an expressive long shadow. It's an interesting photo that calls for close attention.

    Hello Krzysztof,
    These windows are beautiful and made in a style that seems relatively modern. Maybe they were added after the church was built, around the beginning of the last century. I love their bright colours and fine details. Your good exposure and sharpness help us to fully appreciate them.

    Hello Malgo,
    I have a feeling this exhibition may have been interesting. If I live long enough to end up in a home for the very old and frail, I will probably have a robot helping me to the toilet :-(
    This building is also interesting and you took this photo from a good POV with a view of an ordinary part of the city. I like the more straight on WS too.

    Hello Philippe,
    The church has a simple but distinguished elegance. The relative lack of ornaments pleases me much. The large tree to the left plays an important part for the composition and you positioned yourself well in a spot where the tree complemented the view of the church without disturbing it. The sharpness and exposure are first class.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Stephen,
    This looks like a day when a sudden shower could not be ruled out. The clouds have created a harmonious colour scheme of grey and light brown tones that are quite appealing and make the yellow museum pop out from the almost monochrome background.

    Hello Ike,
    You composed this well with the tower placed slightly off centre and with a screen of autumn coloured trees in front of it. That day you had a perfect light, and the superb contrasts have given the many details of the tower a strong 3D effect.

    Hello Murat,
    It's a nice view in a well composed photo but it doesn't look very inviting for swimmers at this moment. But when the flora has turned green it will be a great place for families. You could go back here in summer to take another photo from the same spot.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Luciano,
    It's interesting to see that time has not stood still in Havana, which we are sometimes made to believe when seeing photos from the old part of the city. This is not the most lovely view of the city, or not the most lovely city I have seen, but it's an interesting view. Technically I have no complaints.

    Hello Ryszard,
    This photo has a very attractive light which has given the colours wonderful warm tones. I love the many green, yellow and red nuances of the trees and how they match the red brick roofs. It's a great view across the bay towards the mountain on the other side.
