    Hello Malgo,
    A fine mural that was well qualified for more than one picture. The passive interaction between urban art and people makes a view like this more interesting and dynamic. Strictly artistically I think the huge graffiti shown by Ana in several photos are better than this. But the yellow trousers and the blue drum match the wall perfectly.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Izabela,
    A nice composition created by the city, light and nature and well captured by you. The dark pattern on the golden surface is quite beautiful.

    Hello Ali,
    An interesting and quite sophisticated composition in a well chosen panoramic shape. The road cuts through the empty scenery with the left side on a diagonal and connects the viewer with the distant mountains. I like the balance between the different dark grey and brown tones.

    Hello Ana,
    I like this series very much. The paintings are fantastic and very interesting. In this photo I also like the inclusion of a man seen through a window. But it is not only the fine paintings that make these photos so good. You have also found very good elevated viewpoints from where the paintings don't get any distorted perspectives. Did you manage to climb to the second floor of every house opposite the paintings?
    Kind regards,

    Hello Kasia,
    I like this original composition very much. Most of it looks like a 19th century painting with the fine mild colours of daybreak reflected in the river and the beautifullyl shaped soft clouds. And then there is the silhouette of a girl with long pigtails bumbing into the serenity with the sun shining between her feet. How many times did you have to try this to fulfill your idea so perfectly? Or was the position of the sun a mere coincidence?

    Hello Ryszard,
    I am not usually interested in shopping malls, but I was very impressed by this one, which I found a superb example of old industrial architecture integrated with new buildings for a new purpose. This is also a v very fine photo with three towers, or four including the green building, and very good balance between green and brick red. The dark clouds and the fine light further enhance the photo.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Costantino,
    The red and yellow nets are very nicely given the foreground in this fine composition. They are well placed where the quay makes a curve, which gives the photo a pleasant elegance. Along with the lamppost and the boat the nets form a triangle that give a character to the composition. The mild colours are very appealing.

    Hello Ana,
    This is also a terrific work of urban art. It reminds me a lot of Banksy, who is maybe the icon of most urban graffiti artists. It is well made, amusing and quite beautiful. I don't mind the car so much. It rather melts into the environment and, along with the man, it makes us understand how gigantic this painting is.

    Hello Angel,
    Already in early May the water seems to have been warm enough for a swim. Maybe the girls were so fascinated by the sunset that they forgot about the water. This is a beautiful view you have captured with perfect colours. The gentle waves rolling onto the beach and the two silhouettes in the water are superb details of this fine composition.

    Hello Manuel,
    It's impossible not to think of Don Quixote when seeing this photo.The windmills are very picturesque and with the castle in the background the view is spectacular. You were also blessed with a magnificent cloud hanging just over the castle. It's a very well composed photo with superb depth and beautiful colours.

    Hello Achim,
    Think of a country far away which most people can't find on the map, and you have probably been there. I found this photo by coincidence. It's not spectacular but the buildings are very nice and tidy and the tropical light is well handled. I find it fascinating partly just because it is such an unknown place.

    Hello Piotr,
    The sunset has painted the mountain in beautiful colours. The scenery as such is fantastic, as in many other of your photos, but I have rarely seen this magnificent light before. Several diagonal lines give a structure to the composition.

    Hello Silvio,
    Another beautiful medieval village on a hillside. In this photo I am most of all impressed by the light, which has given a beautiful slightly hazy yellow tone of the buildings. The dark triangle in the foreground creates a distinct contrast.

    Hello Malgo,
    Dark skin shaded from bright light causes problems for photographers, but you managed to keep his facial features reasonably well visibly. You had no problems in capturing the bright colours of the many bikinis hanging from the green umbrella. This kind of very wide beach in the centre of a big city doesn't appeal much to me. And how could it possibly be the sexiest beach in the world when not even topless is allowed? ;-)
    Kind regards,

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    This is a beautifully handled glimpse with a perfect light and an undisturbing background. I like the woman's natural posture as she was unaware of your camera. I also very much like the fine tones of her skin and the balance of her red hat against her pink dress.

    Hello Eleu,
    I guess this area would do well for a forthcoming movie about fighting the Islamic State. Any desert is fairly similar to another desert. The ripples of the sand are fascinating, or at least they were until your footsteps damaged the fine pattern behind you. It's a very nicely balanced composition of 2/3 sand and 1/3 sky.

    Hello Rosemary,
    This is a photo that really jumps at us already among the thumbnails. With such fabulous colours it can't be missed. The brilliantly blue sky matches the tones of the salt, pink gradually turning purple. It's a beautiful but also informative photo, accompanied by an interesting note.

    Hello Bev,
    I don't really see the snake's head, but I'll take your word, or that of the Vikings, for it. By the way, in modern Swedish "orm" means any kind of snake. But who cares about snakes in such a fine scenery, possibly perfect for trekking? I guess walking across the snake's head could be rather windy. I like the fine light and colours and the roughness of the rocks.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
