    Hello Anna,
    As you say, the light was difficult here, but you did really well to overcome the strong contrasts without losing their effects. It's a fine composition with the curve of the roof matched by the distinct verticals and diagonals that create an interesting pattern. In the haze of the strong sunshine there is a fine view towards the forest.

    Hello Mlgo,
    Watching people is always interesting. Here you also give us a glimpse of Tbilisi and its steep hills. It's an undramatc photo but it has nice colours and a good atmosphere. Along with the interesting note it's a good contribution to TE.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Ourania,
    The landmarks of Ayia Marina are certainly very familiar to us by now, but they could never get too familiar ;.). You may call this a mock touristic poster, but I admit I would probably have been tempted to make this composition if I had seen the opportunity. It just surprises me that you didn't already take this photo long ago. It's really an excellent composition.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Mikio,
    This is a well observed amusing moment. Nothing is happening while they are waiting for the green light, but it is an interesting study of three women of very different ages, different sizes and different styles. It's an undramatic but highly entertaining photo.

    Hello Aleksander,
    It may have been a cold day but the colours and light are beautiful and there is a quite pleasant atmosphere by the sea. I like the difference of colours of the sand and the people walking along the beach. The smoke and the persons standing by the fire create an interest in the view.

    Hello Craig,
    Just the kind of picture I like, as you should know by now. There's not much happening, just some very quiet daily activities. I like the colors of the wall and how the bike is placed in relation to the two men. You balanced this composition very well.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Subhendu,
    This is certainly an excellent and very interesting photo but it is rather painful to watch it. It tells us something about the world but it is very close to breaking the limits of what I want to see.

    Hello Leslie,
    A very attractive composition of yellow flowers, blue sky and a red and white woman functioning as a small exclamation mark. The road goes nicely along the bushes after making a bend in the foreground. The excellent clarity and sharpness makes this photo very nice to watch.

    You have made a fine collection of photos of these beautiful birds. There is an amazing number of wires going from or past the electricity pole, providing you with a numer of diagonal lines.

    This is an amazing photo. I have rarely seen this kind of impressive weather phenomenon. I am also fascinated by the paintings of trees on the highrise buildings. A very well captured interesting moment with very good light.

    Hello Klaudio,
    A very pleasant, slightly nostalgic composition with a relaxed atmosphere. Both photos are good and well balanced, but I agree that the boat's reflection looks nicer in this one. I also think this photo has a better view of the trees across the lake. I like the good light and mild colours.

    Hello Ana,
    This is a very appealing composition, which gains a lot from the haze that has created the fine, subdued colours. You have balanced the green ground very well against the brown ground. There is a fine variety of tones in the brown area and the trees are nicely distributed across the composition.

    A different view from above of a medieval village. The clouds, or fog, provide a fine backdrop to the grey buildings on the ridge of the green hill. A very nicely arranged photo with fine light.

    Hello Jasmine,
    This is excellent. You shot this from a fine POV where the dark clouds create a superb background to the various architectural and artistic gems of mainly dark brown and gold. All along the narrow street, which we can just imagine, there are marvellously fine buildings that are a joy to watch. This photo has great clarity and colours.

    A funny picture and really a lot more interesting than the average photo of the average church. I'm not sure exactly what we learn about the world from this photo, but I'm sure we learn something. And just enjoying a picture is worth a lot.

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    A straightforward but very eye-catching and quite amazing photo. The woman's red trousers and the blue cupboard add bright colours to the muddy look of the river, and the oars create very attractive digonals. Maybe more than the artistic and photographic qualities it's the story behind the picture that touches me.
    Kind regards,
