    Hello Ryszard,
    You always find these colorful walls and you present them well. I wouldn't be surprised if this, and others, actually look better in your photos than in reality. It is very much a matter of cropping and balancing.

    Hello Malgo,
    This is quite a remarkable view, not just for the spectacular rainbows and the general environment but for the time of the day it was taken. Very nice.

    Hello Takero,
    This is a beautiful and original portrait. The young lady has a very pretty profile and her straw hat and yellow dress contribute greatly to the nice photo.

    Hello Luciano,
    Bell towers are often great places för surprising photos. This one is remarkably colorful and amusing. The persons also placed themselves neatly into a perfect composition, and you presented it very nicely. The clarity and the distinct details are superb.

    Hello Carlo,
    This is a very amusing and cute photo. I think it will charm everyone. And at least the two largest bears match the colour of the wall perfectly. You made a fine observation.

    A beautiful old house in an alley of cobbled stones. I love the fine details of the wall and how you have captured the texture of the stones so well.

    This is a very eye-catching and elegant composition. It's cleverly and carefully made and neatly cropped. The light is excellently handled and the clouds create a fantastic background.

    Hello Jasmine,
    Welcome back. This is a remarkably elegant staircase with a very nice brown frame. Usually staircases are photographed from above, so this is a welcome new angle. The beautiful walls are very well illuminated.

    Hello John,
    I have seen more artistically created graffiti but there is nothing wrong with the intensity of the colours. I am convinced that the army barracks were a lot greyer when they were still used for military purposes. It seems that those who made this couldn't agree on the design.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Craig,
    This would have been taken moments before or after an earlier photo from the same spot. The light is slightly different but the view is the same. It is beyond doubt a terrific view and I understand that you snapped away as much as you could while the light lasted. But you should be careful jumping on slippery rocks. Didn't you injure a leg or a foot in similar circumstances somewhere else? Greece maybe.
    Best wishes,

    Hello Bev,
    Isn't it amazing what a few swans can do to a photo? The tree is beautiful and the shadows create a fine pattern on its trunk, but it's the swans that are mainly responsible for the pleasant atmosphere of this photo.

    Hello Mesut,
    A wonderful view of the dense forests of Turkey's northeastern Black Sea coast. It's a very well exposed photo which captures the clouds and sky perfectly.
    The first time I travelled through this area, crossing the mountains from Erzurum to Trabzon, I was amazed at the views. I could hardly believe I was still in Turkey. It was so different from the Anatolian interior.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    I understand that this was an exciting experiment for you. You captured the intensity of the low sun excellently. It looks like it's burning through a part of the city wall and embraces the cars and the street. The elegant wall was a well chosen place for your amusement. It creates a superb silhouette with fine details, and a palm is perfectly placed inside one of the vaults.
    Kind regards,

    A fine photo with a good symmetry. Even the lamps inside the windows fit the pattern. Only the man breaks this symmetry in a very nice way and adds a nice human touch.

    Hello Claude,
    You found an amusing triangular view of the trumpet player. The composition makes me think of a poster for a Wild West movie, but these people have drawn their musical instruments instead of guns. This is very much to prefer.

    There are many fine details in this photo, including the cobbled stones and pigeons and the small signs on the tree. The branches of the tree frame the view very nicely at the top.

    Hello Ryszard,
    From the thumbnail I was sure this was an extravagant piece of graffiti, and indeed there are similarities. It's a beautiful and very eye-catching work of public art, ideally made for photographs. You made a very good choice to include the photographer for the life and dimensions he adds.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Malgo,
    The beach as such is fine, but I can feel right through the screen of my monitor that this is not Greece or Spain, even though there are cloudy days in the Mediterranean area as well. I wouldn't even dip my toes in this probably ice cold water. But it was a good place for relaxing a while and the children playing in the sand are cute and seem to have fun.
    But I was surprised to see that you were not wearing sandals! :-)
    Kind regards,
    Gert
