    Hello Piotr,
    A breathtaking view of the mountains and the lake far below. The dark cross is a strong eye-catcher near the foregropund, and the person walking up the hill is an equally strong focus point for the composition, in spite of the competition from the scenic surroundings. I like the fine light and the soft clouds in the distance.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Roland,
    A simple but graphically very attractive and interesting photo. The white lines on the dark stones create a stunning pattern and the two men give an amusing touch to the view. They seem to be discussing something of rather great importance, at least to the man to the left, who seems to be argiuing his case.
    Best regards,

    Hello Bev,
    This garden would require more hard work than I would be prepared to give it, but I don't mind watching it. Besides, does that boat really look safe? Lots of lovely plants though, and obviously at least one very nice tree as well, judging from the fine reflection. But a nice flat in the heart of a city is more to my taste.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Recep,
    This is a good composition where we see the praying boy from an unusual perspective. The tiled pillars (maybe Iznik?) frame the view of the boy and the beautiful carpets very nicely. You have handled the light very well.

    Hello Rosemary,
    These three pictures are even funnier than the previous ones of the giant metal burqa. Not that I understand exactly what the artist wanted to express, but do we really need to "understand" every work of art to enjoy them? This is an exhibition that puts me in a good mood, which is more than I can say sometimes when going through huge, dark rooms of Rubens' fat ladies and pompous men. Even pensioners can enjoy this with a childish mind.
    Kind regards,

    An amusing and quite charming shot. The boy does what a lot of adults would love to do unless they were so afraid to look stupid. A very well captured moment.

    Hej Trevor,
    Det är alltid spännande att öppna dina bilder för att se vad du har hittat. Inga människor denna gång men kaniner är ju också trevliga. Dessutom är landskapet väldigt trevligt, fast molnen verkar varsla om regn,

    Hello Wolfgang,
    It's a very beautiful view of the small village and the fine church. The scenery is great and the colours are strong and vivid. I would have prefered to see the small photo as a workshop instead of inserted into the main photo. Done like this I think it disturbs the view.

    Hello Mesut,
    These are amazing painted wood-carvings from yesterday's mosque. I think this kind of naive folk-art goes beyond religious or cultural borders. Similar designs can be found also in Swedish traditional peasant art, and probably in many more places. It's very interesting and beautiful.

    Hello Mohammad,
    This is a nice and cheerful photo of the boys with their umbrella hats. It is nice because of their friendly smiles and their colourful teeshirts, but also because I find this kind of photo from Saudi Arabia quite unusual, at least on TE. It's an appreciated contribution to the site.

    Hello Wolfgang,
    A nice couple wearing clothes making them perfect for a colour photo. They placed themselves well in front of the white sheet. They look like they are posing, but watching them carefully I think they were not aware of you. The man looks like he knows all that needs to be known about beer.

    Hello Mesut,
    This is really a beautiful, simple mosque. The material makes it very different from most mosques I have seen. This is a building truly worth preserving. I hope it is carefully protetcted. Thanks for sharing.

    I like this photo very much, The simple church seems to be growing out of the rock. The three men walking along the diagonal path give life to the rugged environment. The colours and light are very good.

    Hello Elaine,
    You could hardly have found a more colorful photo op, and I'm not just talking about the painting. There are lots of colors, and human touch, in the background, enough to make any picture interesting. Personally I would feel slightly provoked from having a "photo op" pointed out to me. I'd like to find it out myself :-).
    Kind regards,
    Gert
