    Hello Carlo,
    The reflections in the slightly open windows are well spotted and cleverly managed. The are like a painting inside a very thick frame. It is rare to see reflections of such noble buildings as these.

    Hello Piotr,
    You captured the manor and the state in a photo of great symmetry. Even the nearest shadows fit this pattern, only the people outside the building break it, which is actually a good thing. The light and contrasts are perfect.

    Hello Angel,
    A great view of the fertile valley, the forests, hills and lake, with the romantic castle as the jewel of the crown. The trees to the left are well used for the foreground. The bright light is very agreeable.

    Hell John,
    The small timbered hut is quite beautiful and an unusual kind of building in your gallery. I love the fine and well captured texture of the wood and its entire design. It is nicely situated and in a way it is well balanced by the distant church tower. You seem to have had a lovely day, like we also enjoyed in Stockholm.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Benny,
    With this colour and that odd window the barn would have looked strange in any case, but the well spotted shadows of the branches definitely male it rather creepy. I saw the reference to Hitchcock, which would be quite relevant.
    Best wishes,

    Hello Chris,
    I am sure you were not moving at 90 km/h when you took this. It's remarkably sharp and clear in any case for a picture shot through the window of a bus. The stunning view was definitely worth a photo.

    It's plain but nice street and a well cropped photo. The lady is well placed, enlivens the view and above all fits the pastel colour scheme perfectly.

    Well done to make this fine observation among all the spectacular buildings. The tight crop is the key for the success of this smart composition.

    Hello Nicolas,
    A very smart observation. Everything looks straight and normal, except for the surrealistic distortions at the bottom, where we can't even see that there is a window. A fascinating photo.

    Hello Daniel,
    It's an attractive passage with an architecture reminding me more of a cathedral than a shopping mall. The glass roof makes for a mild and evenly distributed light. The activities on the floor make for a vivid photo.

    Here we also see clear traces of decay in a magnificent setting. The photo session makes the view vivid and provides a focal point. As always a perfectly clear and sharp photo.

    Hello Christiane,
    Congratulations on so many years on the site. You are one of the few remaining here for so long. I hope the sun isn't setting on TE, but sometimes it seems to be getting dark. This photo has beautiful colours and a slightly moody atmosphere. I like the texture of the water very much.

    Hello Murat,
    The long house doesn't look very big but I suppose only few representatives of each clan were supposed to gather here for special occasions. It's an interesting structure and a nicely taken photo with fine colours.

    Hello Alexandre,
    This is a marvellous "portrait" of the monkey. It has such a special facial expression, like a naughty child or a grumpy old man. It is probably not pleased with you. You captured it in a wonderful light and fine surroundings and managed a perfectly sharp and clear photo.

    This water looks very unhealthy so the believers should take care not to swallow any water. It is an odd view from a very unstable part of the world but the oddity makes it an interesting photo.

    The elegant castle, its beautiful reflections and the nicely shaped clouds constitute three almost equally attractive parts of this photo. The fine light and clarity add further beauty.

    Hello Carlo,
    In many cities private courtyards sometimes contain beautiful and surprising things, not just the palaces, but it is usually difficult to see them. I like this glimpse where we mainly see the elegantly shaped iron gate, but the painted wall suggests magnificent details remaining from older and maybe glorious days.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Craig,
    It's quite a special church, and the woman in front of it helps the composition a bit, but when I was there 33 years ago I am pretty sure it was called the Saint Ildefonso (Igreja de Santo Ildefonso), as indicated by Wikipedia. The Santa Clara looks quite different, but strangely enough here and there this church pops up among the Santa Claras.
    Cheers,
    Gert

    Hello György,
    Well done. This looks like a classic B&W photo from the 1940's, or earlier, or just about any time in photo history. The mist has created amazing tones covering most of the greyscale. The high buildings in the background are perhaps not very beautiful but that are almost lost in the mist and anyway totally outweighed by the fine towers closer to us. The towers are also placed very nicely where they balance the photo well.
    Best wishes,
    Gert
