    Hello Rob,
    This is an unexpected photo from downtown Manhattan, but I see it's part of Central Park where anything could happen. I like the bright light and the bodies lying at different engles. It rather makes me think of a scene from a movie.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
    PS I will be largely off TE for a week.

    Hello Christiane,
    Nice bright details of this convention centre. The red parts are very eye-catching and the well polished floor creates great reflections.

    Hello Ali,
    This is a very nice view of the town. I like how they light is falling so neatly on the centre, as if a spot-light of a theatre had been directed on it. The town is nicely surrounded by shady areas. It is a well composed photo in three horizontal sections.

    It's a nice church situated next to a beautiful small park. The diagonals surrounding the lawn give a good structure to the composition. The colours are excellent.

    Hello Malgo,
    It's a nice building, at least very big. I like most of all the street going straight through it. Isn't Banco Santander one of the deeply troubled European banks? I hope the building will stand even if the bank collapses. The workshops are very different this time, but very nice.

    Hello Kari,
    It's a nice composition of the old style train entering the tunnel. I hope the persons taking photos didn't lean too far out of the windows. You got a better photo than any of them, but maybe someone behind you got an even better.

    It's a fine composition with the bicycles by the tree and the village with the church seen in the distance. The tree's shape fits the photo well and the colours are nicely intense.

    Hello György,
    You have a good idea to take photos across the street of someone passing an interesting/ugly/peculiar part. You did it well this time too. There are lots of things to watch, and there seems to have been a good place for you to have a beer after the photo session.
    Best wishes,

    Hello Lars,
    A Bright view from Brighton. The colours and contrasts are good and there is a lively atmosphere among the people strolling along the pier. The many posters and signs and what looks like official "graffiti" on the right side brighten the photo further. Was there such a good wind, or are the flags made to fly like this regardless of the weather?
    Kind regards,

    Hello Paul,
    Do people actually live here? Normal lives? Or is this mainly created to attract tourists? In any case it's a marvellously picturesque and pretty street and this is a fine angle looking down the hill.

    This bridge looks great from every angle. It has the advantage, compared to another one you showed us, that people are actually allowed to use it. The reflections are beautiful too.

    Hello Luciano,
    It's a very nice view of the canal, trees and small buildings on the sides, but I wouldn't have noticed the swans' nest unless you had told us. The workshops of course explain what is happening. They are nice photos but I hope the photographers will not make the poor swans so stressed that they abandon the nest.

    Hello Luis,
    This is a very good photo from what I agree is one of the most beautiful railway stations anywhere. I saw it a few years ago and was only disappointed to find a fast food restaurant that didn't quite suite the wonderful architecture.
    You used the vertical shapes very well and made the best of the shapes and details in the fine light.

    It's a fine photo with great colours and light of this spectacular palace in a style I could not identify. Maybe not even the architect or the Baron knew what to call it, but there are a lot of delightful details.

    Hello György,
    A delightful nothing special with nice colours and clarity and things to watch. My only suggestion would be that you could have cropped the left part with the half window for a perfect symmetry. Is the girl watching the worker or her mobile phone? I suspect she didn't even notice him.

    These "statues" are amusing and colourful and entertaining to watch. I like such monuments much better than a statue of a King sitting on a horse, or any other kind of Important Man made in bronze.

    It's a very strange rock but you have captured it with fine clarity and colours and excellent sharpness. There is a fine play of light and shadows on the rough side and I like the balance if dark and light blue.

    Hello Rob,
    I saw this sign, or an identical one somewhere else, in a photo by Elaine, but it's just as amusing anywhere. It creates so many funny photo opportunities. Nobody could resist this lady's somewhat retro style of dress, and her selfie-taking. It's a delightful picture.

    Hello György,
    Perhaps it's not the most attractive places in the city, but I have a vague feeling you have shown it before from another and maybe nicer looking angle. The photo is a lot about the man on the bench, looking across the square and the large screen. There are several green details in the lower half of the view and a lot of brown towards the top.
    Best wishes,
    Gert
