    Hello Ourania,.
    The zigzagging wall gave you a fine foreground and the red Dimitrios really looks better from this POV than from up close. Or maybe it's the light that makes the difference. Or the fine clouds. Or the land on two sides. Or probably it is the combination of all these factors that makes this such a fine and very attractive photo.
    I wish you a nice weekend.

    Hello Eleu,
    A fine photo of the peaceful coexistence of two colleagues and competitors. Their silhouettes against the evening sky are superb. Only the black square in the upper left corner disturb a little.

    Bonsoir Didi,
    I like very much how the point of view you chose gives a symmetrical presentation of the ruins and how the play of light and shadow challenges this impression of symmetry. A fine, clear image, despite the lighting contrasts, the sky and the clouds are interesting too. All the shady or silhouetted elements add a touch of mystery, melancholy and drama. The warm light and colours are lovely. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great weekend,

    Hello Ike,
    the framing by the arching branches of the eucalyptus trees was a good idea, the dark framing makes the view ahead, the natural colours and the clear sky even more pleasant. I like how more elements are added towards the background, where there are hints of an urban setting. I also like that we get to know where the water is thanks to the blue reflections. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello John,
    a lovely, sunny picture, well composed, filled with colours and interest. You balanced the diverse architectural styles and the different types of vegetation very skillfully, each element is distinct for its details, textures and colours, but it is also delightful to look at their abstract versions in the reflections. The swans add liveliness and make this rewarding scene complete. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello dear Ali,
    an interesting graphic representation of this vast, deserted scenery, I like how you enhanced the impression of depth using this type of framing and how strongly the road draws us in, all the way to the curve, which I would like to follow too. The textures in the foreground help us to better understand this landscape. The tiny car heading to the curve adds remarkable dynamism and interest for its size. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great weekend,

    Hello Serghei,
    your experience with this attractive photo gives us a delightful information about the people who use the metro in Bucuresti, they are patient and obliging, helping a photographer to realize his vision:) Your idea for this composition is superb and I like both the geometry and the spontaneity of it. I like how the gentleman on the left stands facing all these dynamic patterns. The lighting and the colours are agreeable and the dark parts enhance graphism and interest. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonjour Cricri,
    this is an effective description of a very interesting place. You handled the lighting contrasts remarkably well, giving us the chance to study the extraordinary road scenery without missing the fine details and colours of the backdrop. The clarity through the little tunnel is superb, our glance runs all over the place smoothly. You captured the subtle tonal variations in a very fine way. Congratulations and thank you!

    Ciao Luciano,
    hai catturato la scena in bellissima luce e la chiesetta pittoresca brilla sotto il sole gioiosamente. La sua presenza in uno scenario simile e sorpredente ma nella tua foto fa un ottimo punto focale e, sicuramente, fa un importante punto di riferimento sulla costa intera. E' bello quardare le persone divertrsi al mare, ci dai l' opportunita di godere la luce, i colori e l' atmosfera della spiaggia nel modo piu vivace. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buon fine settimana,
    Ourania

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    I like very much the spontaneous and ambiguous moment you captured, the uncertain interaction that will make the viewer wonder for ever. The eye and the mouth are expressive but not easy to decipher, the intensity of the colours against a mysterious backdrop make the portrait vibrant and attractive. I also like how the head dress enhances the impression of movement. You managed the highlight masterfully. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great weekend,

    Seeing red!! what a nature beauty captured with great colour and warm tones. The lighting does it justice here, it's finely composed, lovely detail and good clarity blended together with the reflection gives a tremendous plus point. Superb shot, Congrats

    A smart and elegant composition. The clouds that look like they are continuing into the building make me think of a surrealistic painting. Very well seen.

    Hi Ana
    What amazing eyes and a compelling image that at once striking but It would be a little unnerving to see this unexpectedly on a wall. I wonder what this looks like at night; if the eyes glow. It's a very artful because it focuses directly on the face and results in an immediate response. It's disturbingly real direct artwork vividly detailed and whoever the artist is they are very good at portraits and it's quite clearly the talent will never go unseen. Very cleverly done and very well taken by you with the guy lends a superb reference point. Very realistic image Ana where there is an amazing amount of life and thought behind those eyes. Thanks for sharing :)

    Hi Gerrit
    A street scene with horse and cart that coveys a great atmosphere when the bright colors somehow drags the eyes in. The pace of life is reflected vividly here with the folks add a lot to it but indeed a charming slice of life unique only to Cuba perhaps. Excellent moment registered when the light quality is at its premium. Great shot, Congrats.

    Hello Kasia - Your low POV and clever composition gives a dynamism to this creatively conceived shot. The cyclist enhances the feeling of movement as she just enters the frame and we know that she will cycle across from left to right. I like the your placement of the sun too. It adds to the mood of the image.. |I mustn't forget the landscape either... beautifully subtle.

    A top shot.

    Warm regards

    Hello Gerrit - Riding your bike through the landscape affords you plenty of time to enjoy the scenery and life along the road. This is a great example of what you saw on the back-roads and paints a different picture of Cuba. I love this shot of family togetherness.

    What a super shot Eleu. The sun is perfectly positioned behind the pelican and the silhouette of man and bird are easily read. Nice little details of sun reflections on the pier and the sea. I wonder... who will get the catch of the day?

    The rich colour combination strikes the eye as strong element, what a lovely composition of such nice landmark and this image shows it. A stunning shot in gorgeous light, detail and tones with the famous windmills perfectly positioned. I feel this shot evokes that special wonderful feeling of calm!! Awesome piece of lens work..

    Hi Lisa
    Photographing sculpture is a passion...
    It's about conveying someone else's creativity faithfully but in one's own style and this capture obviously lends itself to photography particularly well. Powerful in mono when the lights and darks give the substance, and you've found an angle - shooting right through the 'lively peacock' and composition that marry the two, give them a unity. Plus the image is dynamic, engaging and characterful. I'm just peeved that this is so far away from here and I haven't a chance of photographing it myself.....
    Another interesting piece of work, Congrats
    Warm regards
