    Hello Malgo,
    A nice area for strolling. Lots of trees and flowers, nice buildings, fine reflections in the water. A very pleasant photo.

    Hello Murat,
    It's a very nicely ornamented detail of the boat. It's sharp and clear and the fine contrasts bring out the details well. As a photo I would prefer the WS of the Golden hawk, where we see an identifiable figure from the front with a quite spacious area behind and the boy stepping inside the room, adding a human touch.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Ryszard,
    You found a place with a good view of the square in spite of the many umbrellas. Too much commercialization often spolis the view of beautiful places. I was greatly disappointed with the Rynek in Rzeszˇw ;-). You used the nearest lamppost well, and in the foreground we also get an glimpse of an interesting sculpture, maybe a fountain. The umbrellas can't spoil the fine colours.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Robert,
    The colours, shapes and the dramatic contrasts of light and darkness make this look like it's from a Hollywood movie. You spotted this well and cropped it suitably. The exposure is superb.

    Hello Rob,
    I remember some concerts with this kind of annoying psychedelic flashes of light. In 1967-68 I was fascinated by the idea of mind-expanding Mexican drugs to improve the abstract paintings I was trying to make, but fortunately they were hard to get, and LSD was not yet very well known, so I grew up quite clean ;-). By the time I travelled in Asia and everything was available I was no longer interested. Protests against the Vietnam war became much more important. This photo once again brings back memories. I still enjoy some of the music but can do without everything that came along with it.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Gy÷rgy,
    It's a good photo and a very interesting note. :-) I think their happy faces could inspire me to a story, or several. It's a photo open to every interpretation. Unfortunately too many people on TE don't seem to appreciate the joy of nothing special. But you can trust me. ;-)
    Have a nice weekend,

    Hello Bev,
    A grey and dull day, but a barrage painted like this brightens the view considerably. The barrage and its reflections create a quite nice triangle. This kind of construction has to be functional, so beautiful design has to stand back, but this shows what some paint can do.

    Hello Sergio,
    What an amazing view and great photo. The church fašade is incredibly decorated, and from this angle there seem to be just as many details on the buildings on the sides. The contrasts and play of light and dark areas have created a remarkably strong 3D effect. It's an absolutely stunning photo.
    Kind regards,

    It's an attractive wall with fine details and it makes quite an impression as it is standing there alone. It's a nice composition with an attractive simplicity and only three colours.

    Hello Craig,
    I would love to see such murals all around me. It would make going for a walk to get some exercise much more fun and interesting. This is also very well made and of a real artistic value. It's a very interesting shot, very neatly taken and cropped.

    Hello Christiane,
    This is a photo with superb depth and wonderful colours. Three broad green lines take me straight up to the elegant building. The persons approaching the library are at almost equal distance from us. On the right side a woman is sitting on a bench and opposite her the person sitting on another bench looks very much like a statue. I like amusing small details like that. It's a very neatly taken photo with excellent light and colours.

    A nice girl seated in a good place for a photo. Apart from the umbrellas there is an abundance of red details in both photos. Obviously a very photogenic area. Both photos are nicely composed and well exposed.

    Hello Stephen,
    Maybe he was just as happy to stay outside. You must have been happy to find him here, standing at a perfect distance to allow you to include him in a photo covering the entire entrance to the cathedral. The ladies partly dressed in red, orange or pink also served you well. According to my ideas of street-photos this is an excellent composition.

    Hello Ryszard,
    It's a remarkably elegant fašade and a neatly cropped photo. I imagine this house has received a total face-lift after 1989. The beautiful details are captured in a very good light.

    Hello Luciano,
    It's a stunning scenery and its easy to understand that this area is so almost inaccessible as you describe in the note. This is far away from any place I saw in Georgia. The photo is well divided in two sections along a diagonal. The church is very simple but I like the WS showing the interior. The faith expressed through the simple details is rather touching, even to a dedicated non-believer as I.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Luis,
    It's one of many nice fašades in Gamla stan. Maybe this happened to be catching the warm light of the sun better than others. The colours and light of the photo is perfect, and so is the sharpness. The windows and the decorations above them are remarkably fine and are perfectly seen thanks to the high quality of the photo.

    Hello Carlo,
    It was a smart idea to place this red monument in what looks like the middle of nowhere. The effect of the big pepperoni on a green dish in the undulating scenery looking like a desert is quite stunning. It's a very appetizing photo.

    Hello Jean,
    The hedges are nicely designed at straight angles and from this position we see them on diagonals, which always seems to be a way to give a certain rhythm as well as stability to any composition. The green dominance matches the faded orange tones of the wall well.

    There is a good story accompanying the photo of the sculpture of a bowl. The monument looks old and battered but it is nicely situated in the park. There is a beautiful warm light shining among the trees.
