    Hej igen!
    Lemurer är gulligare, men onekligen är sådana här bilder intressantare. Alla tre har sina poänger men den här har ju finaste färgerna och kanske bästa ljuset. Tillsammans berättar de om ett liv som alltför sällan syns på TE. Bra reportagebilder.
    Nu ska jag skriva ett mejl.
    Hej då,

    Hello Serghei,
    For a photo it doesn't matter if one street is less famous than another. This one is big and lively and long enough to give a strong impression. Let's count the yellow cabs and the zebra crossings! It's a very clear and good photo taken through a window, and it's well timed.
    Best regards,

    Hello Silvio,
    The people and dog walking towards us make this different from the ordinary shot of the villa between the trees. We still see enough of the façade to realize its elegance but mainly get a view enlivened by the people. I like the contrasts of the pink façade and the dark green trees.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Serge,
    It's good for the ducks that elephants probably don't eat meat. They could have landed on a crocodile. It's a cute and attractive photo with fine colours given a warm tone from the lovely light.

    Hello Pierre,
    A nice boat seen below the forest of masts. There is a good contrast between the blue lower part of the photo and the mainly green and dark grey upper part. The light is very attractive.

    Hello György,
    What have you done? This is not nothing special, and it's too elegant for a postcard. It's just a good photo. The castle is very well placed in the gap between the trees and the colours are nicely slightly dark with quite intense tones and fine contrasts.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Malgo,
    I am inclined to agree that the decorations are slightly too much, but of course it is impossible not to be impressed. There are many details here, most of all the huge chandeliers, that create a superb depth. The other visitors also contribute to this effect. You also managed the light very nicely. How lucky that I am more interested in movies than opera. With a "senior citizen" discount it costs me less than 10 euros.

    Hello Danos,
    I have only seen this from the main highway passing by, and perhaps this castle is at its best from a distance. I suppose a 19th century castle made to look like 14th or 15th century could be regarded as "fake", but it makes a stunning sight, especially with the wide view of the hills and the river behind it. The cloudy sky helped you to a photo with very pleasantly mild colours.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Daniel,
    A nicely composed photo with the pillar and the architecture creating a fine vertical accent. Maybe the warm light has done something to the colours, but in any case they are marvelously well matching.

    Hello Ryszard,
    You balanced this composition well with the dominant features placed near the opposing corners and connected with the diagonal tracks. The windmill is probably a nice place to stay in an exclusive environment, as long as the shops and major road are not too far away.

    Hello Jorge,
    The weather was not so nice but the rather bad light seems to have intensified the colours of your fellow tourists taking photos on the quay. The palm and the motor bikes also provide nice details for the foreground and the Venetian fort is clearly visible in the slightly hazy distance.
    Kind regards,

    It's a nice tower with interesting faded paintings inside the vaults near the top. You placed it well to the side, leaving a good view across the valley through the gap between the tower and the trees.

    Hello Paul,
    This one does well as the main photo, but perhaps you could also have chosen the WS #2, just as you suggest. But it doesn't make much difference. Both photos are very interesting to watch for the fine colours and the quiet life in the streets of this small town. I recognize your description of the climate. In a city on the south coast of Yemen I was overwhelmed by the heat and humidity, and ever since I have been convinced that the temperature was at least 40°, and probably more. Just recently I checked up the weather statistics for that place and found that it rarely gets hotter than maybe 35°, and at that time of the year usually not more than 30. I was very surprised and almost felt I had been cheated.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Piotr,
    The global heating is very worrying, and even worse is that there are leading politicians in important countries that deny what is obviously happening. Without knowing anything about the receding glaciers this would be a stunning photo in any case. The scenery is spectacular, but strangely what I notice most of all is the person in the green jacket and the black sign with red letters. Two small dots of bright colours in the mainly very grey landscape.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Angel,
    The weather doesn't look like what I expect in July, but in spite of the thick clouds and rather dull light the multicoloured façades shine intensely and brighten the view remarkably. They make the composition very attractive.

    Hello Kasia,
    Every comment that needs to be made about this photo has already been made by yourself. I could copy the entire first paragraph about colours and cherry on the cake etc. I could add that the boats are very nicely placed and that the light is delightful. Thank you also for dedicating the WS to me. Yes, both photos and your description of the ride from Pokhara evoke strong memories of so many local journeys I have made in Asia and Africa, every time being nicely surprised afterwards that I survived once again.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
