    Hello Noel,
    The environment is ideal for an installation or any kind of exhibition of art, and these photos are indeed a kind of art, maybe just more meaningful than a lot of other exhibitions. It's a fine photo of the long line of portraits in front of the castle and a most interesting note. I agree that the concrete bases are not very pretty, but maybe the intention is to make the "installations" more stable, to make it more difficult for some crazy person, who doesn't like those that are different, to topple them.
    Best regards,

    Hello Jean,
    This looks nice. It must be a great way to explore the bay and watch the shores, provided you can keep the balance. You found an excellent composition with the lighthouse in the background and the fine reflections across the quiet water. The light and colours are wonderful.

    Hello Eleu,
    A very eye-catching photo, another great result of your habit to point your camera towards the sky. It's very well taken with perfect exposure and sharpness. I am just surprised to see it was taken on November 11. Anyway it's of course a perfect contribution today.
    Have a nice holiday,

    Hello Mesut,
    This is a charming collage of yellow, blue and red details against a white background. I like the well captured texture of the rough stone wall and the beauty of unimportant things.

    Hello Costantino.
    It's a magnificent ship, truly beautiful, and it must be an experience to be on board. The passengers and crew, and the small motor boat, tell us about the size of the ship. This is a very nice photo with fine colours and well managed light.

    Hello Chris,
    Strangely I don't specifically recognize this view although I have stood at the same spot where Princip shot the archduke and his wife. From this angle Sarajevo looks very idyllic, maybe partly thanks to the fine light and colours. When I was there seven years ago the weather was dull and cold and the war looked so close almost everywhere.

    Hello Gerrit,
    It's nice to see you haven't left us for ever, like so many others. You had beautiful views on your biking trip. I like this look across the canal towards the old church, the idyllic village and the marsh with its tall reeds and yellow flowers. I suppose it was a very hot day, like in most of Europe presently.

    Hello Carlo,
    I like this combination of ancient tower and signs of ordinary daily life. History comes very close to this family hanging its laundry in the garden by the bright yellow and red chair. It's a fascinating idea to have a medieval building as your closest neighbor. The warm light is beautiful and has saturated the colours very nicely.

    It's a great picture and the dark brick wall serves as a perfect background to the colorful kids. They obviously have a lot of fun. I like the look of the boy on the left who is so eager to join the crowd.

    Hello John,
    You have very successfully combined architecture and daily life in this fine photo. I always like when extremely well known buildings are shown from an unexpected angle which gives the picture an air of freshness. There is a nice atmosphere in the lower part (where some of the persons seem to be not actually busy with their phones, how surprising), and the low angle really makes the towers look majestic. Wonderful colours as always.
    What is inside the towers, apart from the machinery, and are they open to the public?
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Takero,
    I like your sports photos very much. You are so good at capturing the players' expressions and the most dramatic moments. This one is also very good because there is a white horizontal fighting with a black vertical. Very well done.

    Hello Will,
    It's definitely "Juliet" that makes this diptych. It would have been great to have her in just one photo but maybe her immediate surroundings were not so nice. It's still a very good idea to have these two pictures together. I love when patterns are broken this way. It's often the irregularities that make a picture exciting.

    Hello Les,
    The building looks quite well preserved, not really like a ruin. It is still impressive, partly due to the empty and "wild" surroundings. The tree in the foreground has a very picturesque silhouette and the thin clouds are very attractive. This is again a fine B&W photo with an appealing greyscale.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
