    Hello Danos,
    The palms are really remarkably high, like probably none I have seen before. The woman is proof of their size but she also provides life to the photo. The garden looks like a nice oasis in the desert of stones and concrete of Athens. It's a nicely cropped photo with excellent colours and a very suitable shape.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Ourania,
    The sign gives a slightly ironic twist to the photo, because the lady doesn't look very happy at all. Not depressed either, just as indifferent as most of us probably look when we're thinking of something else and are unaware of a stranger's camera being pointed at us. Sitting there in the shade with her sunglasses on she looks rather cool, like a celebrity trying to be unnoticed. But you spotted her, in spite of her disguise and the plants almost hiding her. This is a nice snapshot, obviously taken by an experienced paparazza.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Luis,
    I like how you did not wait for the street to be empty (maybe that would be impossible). The cars, and especially the red bus, brighten the view and create life. They show that this magnificent building from thousands of years ago is situated in the centre of a big city and part of modern life. You have taken the photo with your usual good exposure and perfect colours.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Ike,
    We see the elegant pylon of the bridge rise unexpectedly as if built among the trees. It's been 23 years since I last visited Jerusalem so I am sure this didn't exist then. At least I have no memory of it. You had a beautiful day with lovely colours.

    Hello Silvio,
    You have handled the light beautifully in this magnificent room. I like the long perspective through a series of rooms on the right side. The candles in the big lamp, pointing in all directions, make me smile.

    Hello Rob,
    Compared with some of your recent photos this is a quite plain composition but no less beautiful. I like the rather discreet distortions of the reflections and above all I like the neat cropping with the natural frames of the building and the sky. It's very elegantly done.

    Hello Malgo,
    It's a magnificent photo with very good colours, a nice shape and of course a very impressive dune. Considering there were no tourists here but you there seems to be remarkably many locals climbing the dune just for fun :-). Well, whoever they were they add life and scale to the photo. But your driver was very ignorant. He should have known that the Polish babushka would climb anything, anywhere ;-).

    Hello Pavle,
    A nice presentation of tomato plants growing in the greenhouse. I like the contrasts of green and brown and the yellow blossoms that in due time will be transformed into red tomatos. It's a well taken and informative photo.

    Hello Gy÷rgy,
    The colours are rather pale, so probably the film expired in the 1990's. But the composition is fine, with the sculpture well placed as a foreground and an interesting clash of architectural styles behind.

    Hello Chris,
    The ancient Egyptian paintings impressed me even more than the pyramids or the Sphinx. They were more tangible proofs of the talents of individuals and sometimes so well preserved that they could have been recently made. I would have loved a painting like this also if I saw it in a gallery of contemporary art. This is excellently captured through a thick glass. Pardon my ignorance, but what is a cpf?

    A good atmosphere on the evening after another hot day. The sun is beautifully reflected and the three girls watching the sea are nicely seen against the purple tones of the sky. The photo is very nicely divided in three sections of different colours and character.

    Hello Dale,
    It's an uncomplicated but quite efficient composition. I like the contrasts of the green meadow and the brown tower. The blue flowers make the foreground nice and the hillside has given you a fine diagonal that splits the photo in two halves. It's very well exposed and saturated,

    It's a nice photo but this time I rather prefer the WS. The cat and the sculpture look good together but the wall and the signs don't add much further, really.

    Hello Mariusz,
    If you had been like some of your compatriots on this site you would have slept in your car outside the palace to catch the perfect light and reflections ;-). Maybe this castle is so relatively little known because everyone is embarrassed to talk about it? How could it get such a name?
    Apart from that, this is a very good photo in an appealing square shape. What we see of the building is truly impressive, it's a very well exposed photo and the dark clouds seem to underscore the good light and intense colours of the fašade and towers.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Angel,
    The nice hills with white buildings along the ridges were captured at the time of the day when the light was the most favourable. The warm and intense tones are beautiful and the cloud to the left is very pretty. I can't believe this was March. You would never see such colours and light at that time of the year in northern Europe. The photo has a wonderful clarity and sharpness.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
