    Hello Gert,
    it's a great scene, a strong and vivid memory from a journey taken long ago. The eye contact makes a striking impact, maybe the same as in the moment you experienced it first hand. The gentleman must have been looking at you for a while so his fellow passenger tried to have a glimpse too. The local people's reactions to your camera make us connect with the scenes too and our impressions of the settings you present get stronger. The workshop pictures are wonderful complements, I like the consistent moody colours in all three. Congratulations and thank you! There's life and food for thought in your pictures, even in the old ones, those you hadn't processed in an advanced way:)
    All the best, have a great evening,
    Ourania

    Hello Wolfgang,
    I always like the surprising intrusions and plays of shadows, I think, however, that they are a little heavy on the fašade of this fine building and I feel like reaching out and wiping them away:) I like them very much across the ground and in their subtler effects on the buildings. The light and the chromatic contrasts are fabulous, the perspective is inviting. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Καλησπέρα Κωνσταντίνε,
    ενα χαριτωμένο σκηνικό, μια ατμοσφαιρική σκηνή δρόμου. Ο καιρός είναι κρύος και βροχερός, το φως και το βρεγμένο πεζοδρόμιο μας δίνουν μια εύγλωττη περιγραφή της ατμόσφαιρας. Ο μοναχικός διαβάτης προσφέρει σημαντικό ανθρώπινο ενδιαφέρον και δίνει νόημα στο σκηνικό. Μου αρέσει πολύ ένταση των χρωμάτων, φαίνεται να φωνάζουν δυνατά στην πόλη να ξυπνήσει. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
    Να είσαι καλά, καλό σου βράδυ,
    Ουρανία

    Hello Ana,
    Looking briefly at the thumbnail I thought it might have been a real person riding a real animal. I thought you were so lucky to meet them in this fine and mysterious light. Well, they placed the sculpture well and your description of the rest of the outdoor "galley" sounds very interesting. In this photo you have captured a light and colours that make me think of a Rembrandt painting.
    Kind regards, and Merry Christmas,
    Gert

    Hello Bev,
    I remember this bridge very well but I probably didn't see any snow here before. It's a very charming spot and the early spring light gives it a very fresh appearance with fine colours.
    I wish you Happy Holidays.

    Hello Gunnar,
    I like this picture very much, it's simple and evocative at the same time, the little compound is perfectly placed in the frame and it catches our attention with its bright colours too. Warm golden earth and heavy grey sky is a superb combination, the scenery on the horizon divides them in an interesting way and everything placed in that narrow area becomes significant and attractive. I like this scene even more because it's a fine fleeting impression from a journey. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a wonderful Christmas holiday,

    Bonjour Serge,
    a very effective picture, your composition is well considered, the scene is symmetrical, deep and quiet, mysterious and atmospheric too. It offers so many ideas for stories, the one you cited in your note makes a strong impact and it's easy to make associations between the photo and the facts of the plot, despite the obvious differences:) I like the perspective and the suggestive human presence. The lights are an essential component of the story. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Bonsoir Juliette,
    a wonderful picture, you captured the effect of the fog very accurately and there's an artistic quality in your picture. The natural patterns of the branches and the grass are so sharp and lovely, the tree is well placed and there's depth and perspective that make the scenery look spacious. I also like the smooth colour palette and the texture of the fog, it feels palpable. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hello Gerrit,
    a lovely candid portrait with character and emotions. I, too, think that the lovely girl is both shy and delighted to have her portrait taken, she has a fine ambiguous expression which you captured precisely. I like very much the light on her face and the mild warm tones. You achieved a great tonal graduation and the black backdrop is so effective in setting out the portrait and enhancing the sense of intimacy. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Ciao Romano,

    Your picture cares for depth and perspective.
    The facades is a very nice architecture, that we not everyday can see on TE.
    Notwithstanding a very nice composition, excellent presentation.

    un edificio molto strano ma accattivante, specialmente in questa luce che gli da' un calore bellissimo e delle ombre effettive. Hai gestito luce, colori e contrasti in modo originale ed interessante, l' edificio spicca nel contesto semplice in tutta la sua grandezza ed il suo carattere misterioso. Complimenti e grazie!

    Ciao Silvio,
    bella ed interessante la presentazione di queste due torri monumentali. Piacevole la prospettiva che le collega, la tua composizione in formato verticale e' ben equilibrata e gratificante per quello che riguarda tessiture e dettagli. La dolcezza dei colori e la loro intensita' debole rende le tessiture ancora piu' attraenti e crea un aspetto grafico. Trovo interessante anche l' inserimento di qualche dettaglio di vita quotidiana. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buona serata,

    They didn't seem to have received much money, but maybe they had just started. It's a nice and lively photo and the kemence looks like an interesting traditional instrument. Sometimes a fusion of modern and traditional sounds have great effects.

    Καλησπέρα Δάνο,
    ένα πολύ εντυπωσιακό και ενδιαφέρον αρχιτεκτονικό και ιστορικό τοπίο της Αθήνας, είναι όμως δύσκολο να βρει κανείς μια καλή γωνία για να το φωτογραφήσει. Μου αρέσει πολύ η ιδέα σου για αυτή τη σύνθεση, ξεπέρασες όλα τα εμπόδια που παρεμβάλλονται και έκανες έναν θαυμάσιο συσχετισμό των δύο μνημείων. Απολαυστική η λιακάδα και καθαρές οι σκιές, εξαιρετική ευκρίνεια και ωραία, ζωηρά χρώματα. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
    Να είσαι καλά, Ευτυχισμένα Χριστούγεννα για εσένα και την οικογένειά σου!
