    Hello Robert,
    I like this photo a lot. It's a very nicely balanced composition with distinct features. The boat in the lower corner balances the white buildings on the hill nicely, and there is a good connection between the small red buildings and the red roofs. The people in red clothes and the persons close to the water provide more colors and life. The warm tone of the light is very pleasant. This is in every sense a fine photo.
    Regards,
    Gert

    Hello Ourania,
    For a moment I thought this was from the same place you showed recently, but that was Vromolithos, as I quickly found out. The house looks so cosily surrounded by trees, just like some in that place. Did you try to get up on the roof? There should be a great view from there, much better than among the trees. This photo tells us that this at least must have been a fine place to live once upon a time, but what do you mean with "almost abandoned"? Does the owner come here once a year?
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Kari,
    A very nice view, which easily could have been taken in Sweden :-). There are really so many similarities between our countries. The weather looks fantastic and I can imagine the crisp air of a sunny day in early autumn. The red boat, although largely shaded, makes a fine splash of brightness in the still mainly soft green environment.
    Best wishes,
    Gert

    Hello Eleu,
    I suppose this is among the first autumn pictures this year. There will be more, no doubt. The dark background and the favourable light make the magnificent red and yellow leaves pop out towards the viewer. Very nice.

    Hello JosÚ,
    This is a very nice view strongly dominated by the maze of red brick roofs. The composition gets a fine rhythm from the hills that put the roofs at so many different levels. The church tower and the nearest blue fašade stand out from the crowd. The light and colours are perfect.

    A very nice composition. The beautiful terrace and the pretty white houses climbing the hill are very nicely seen through the rounded arch. It's a very well exposed photo with excellent colours.

    Hello Harriet,
    Two months after your last photo I thought that you had left, like so many others. It's nice to see you back on the site.
    I don't know how this place has changed since 1875. There are probably more houses, and bigger houses, and the boats have probably grown too, and become relatively much more expensive. The view is still nice, and there may have been a simple wooden jetty like the nearest one even 140 years ago. The iight and the clouds would have been the same, so it's no wonder painters liked this place, just as some photographers like it today.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Ann,
    I am looking for the photogarpher in the shining helmet but I am not sure if she is there. But it doesn't matter. There is so much else to be seen in that piece of metal. It's an amusing photo which captures some of the medieval fare in two layers. each one nicely blurred in its own way, plus a very sharp nose and jaw of an anonymous soldier.

    The heads of three ladies all looking in different directions. White clothes and dark clothes. One classic statue well placed in the foreground, a painting at the centre. As always a very well composed photo in excellent tones of B&W.

    Hello Craig,
    Sometimes the circumstances of the moment prevent us from taking the technically perfect photos that we may have wished. But after all, that moment may be more precious than perfection. The background here is not razor sharp, but it's not so blurred that we can't enjoy its scenic beauty. And the lady may have her eyes closed, but her eyes are so shaded that we don't really notice that unless we look very closely. But she is there, the view is great, the colors are superb, the atmosphere is nice. What more can you really ask for?
    Have a nice week,
    Gert

    Hello Leslie,
    These are two very large horses for a very small man. Your perspective is wonderful and amusing. It shows the beautiful horses in perfect details and makes them look very very impressive. It's very interesting to watch this traditional way of ploughing. The fine light and colours, and the diagonal emphasis, all contribute to making this a very nice photo.

    Hello John,
    The nice assembly of cows in the foreground is the main feature of this photo. But I also like the connection between them and the assembly of buildings in the background. There is an amusing similarity of colours between the cows and the houses. An invisible diagonal line could be drawn between these two groups, and another diagonal is seen between the cows and the distant tower to the left , going through the lonely tree on the field. The light was lovely on this last day of August, reminding us of the summer that now has passed.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Jason,
    In spite of the power lines you mention this was an opportunity not to be missed. There are lots of pictures of similar fireworks on TE but very rarely do they show such spectacular buildings at the same time. The combination of towers and pyrotechnical effects is marvellous. I would say this is even more than a decent shot.
    Have a nice week.

    The hang glider looks very decorative against the dark blue sky with its few but graphically beautiful details. You have placed it well towards the side of the composition. I like the intense colours of this photo.

    Hello Malgo,
    This is among the most spectacular churches of this kind I have seen. Lovers of onion domes certainly have their full share. I also like the pink wall and green roof of the nearest building. The fine weather and the nice side-light were in your favour too.

    This is a very nice view of the old wall and the beautiful tower. I love the balance of colours between the wall and the trees. The warm tones of the sunlight enhance the clarity of the colours very nicely.

    Good morning Bev,
    These black rocks are certainly impressive but look like a difficult obstacle for trekkers. In case of a speedily approaching high tide I imagine they could pose a danger. But it's certainly an interesting view and your photo has an excellent clarity and very good colours.

    Hello Wolfgang,
    Underground stations at rush hour offer great possibilites to watch people. The bad light would cause the greatest problem for a photographer, but i don't see any traces of that here. Except for the design of the train and a pair of Lederhosen this could have been the Stockholm metro.

    Hello Jean Claude,
    I like this photo very much. The merry-go-round has such bright colours and shining lamps, but nobody is there to have fun because of the gloomy weather. I really like the combination of dark clouds, bright colours, wet streets and emptiness. It's a well captured moment of early autumn. Summer is gone and the outdoor fun is basically over for this time.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
