    Bonsoir Christiane,
    What a beautiful sight from the balcony and across the valley to the Superstition-mountain. The side light enhanced the mountain's contourlines, and there was a great contrast to the town dip in green and surround with big Arizona cactuses.
    Impressive photo, yet pleasant to look at.

    Good evening Erling,
    A fabulous distortion by the reflection upon the water surface.
    The colors managed superbly and light marvelously enhanced the contrast of colors. Well spotted and rendered this beauty.

    Kalispera Ourania,
    The overcast sky did not interfere with the beauty of the image. Kept well the red and blue colors, contrast the grey clouds.
    The ginger cat was a nice bonus to the whole.

    Hello Gert,
    Depicted this as a daily-life picture, but it has more to do with ceremony and tradition. A good documentary from long ago, the elephant statue is an imposing object here, the colors of the flowers stand excellent contrast on picture.
    Good evening,

    Hello Rob,
    I agree that there is a great contrast from several aspects in this particular scene.
    The old iron structure in front of the city skyline, gave a textural-contrast and there is obvious colors contrast. The pic. is clear, distinct, and well lit.
    Good afternoon,

    We can't be too choosy about the weather when traveling, Malgo, but you had good chance to post the WS pic. as a main post, to my opinion - a good close-up on the entrance and leaving the wider view for a complementary.
    Nevertheless, you delivered a beautiful architecture's of this facade and its beautifdul windows in diff. colors, reflections, good light and colors, very good sharp and distinct details.
    My best regards,

    Kalimera Costantino,
    The fog in the BG enhanced the warm yellow/orange color of the tree in the FG. Still autumn colors, in winter the tree may be completely naked from leaves.
    Fog situation is not an easy task to take photos about, but did well on this situation.
    Have a nice new week,

    Good morning Pavle,
    What you had describe here is not good news for the future generation in Serbia, hope it will be better.
    This house once was an impressive villa, but its grandeur days are well in the past.
    Nice taken this pic., and added the note about.

    Beautiful sight of the pool in a stunning blue tone, Luis.
    Nicely added the palm-tree branches from above as a silhouette, and the view towards the beach.
    Must had been a dark morning and not many people at the pool-side.
    Have a nice new day,

    This was the beginning of winter in the southern-hemisphere, Wolfgang, but looks as a storm came above this beautiful beach.
    The lone figure of the man jogging, added much life to the empty beach.

    Ciao Carlo,
    A dynamic scene with the guy riding a moto on the beach - something that is not allowed in Israel at all.
    The photo is well lit and distinct in contrast, show well the foot-prints and tires marks on the sand.

    Chosen well the POV with the wooden fence framing the scene from its foreground. The wide green front-yard allow good distant view upon the complex, show the ancient houses in a fine light and distinct clear details.

    Frost and snow on the road and up on the trees branches, gave a mid winter ambiance, though the light still bright enough and allow this marvelous "show". Fine photo, cold yet beautiful.

    Hello Bulent,
    The lady in the window is a good listener, but was looking at you while listening to her friend.
    Umbrella on hand, tell us about the possible weather on that day.
    Exchanging the recipe for a great dish...? maybe.
    A moment well taken and presented.

    Bom dia Lucas,
    The water seem to transparent, and the colors of the rocks and eroded soil made the contrast here.
    Both this and the WS show well the park area, formation and people enjoy the cool water on a hot day.
