    Hello Mesut,
    Wow! That museum has a wonderful collection of Roman mosaics.
    I didn't know that Gaziantep had been such an important place in the Roman empire.
    Also this one you've captured excellently and very sharp while the colours of the mosaic are wonderfully reflected.

    Bonsoir Nicolas,
    Magnifique avec le petit arbre entouré d'un épais manteau de la neige éblouissante.
    Très beau avec les lignes légèrement en diagonale dans la neige.

    Hello Beverley,
    I really like the composition of the picture and the depth created by the mossy overgrown big stones and the bridge over the water that lead our eyes to the house on the background.
    The overhanging branches provide an attractive framing on the top of the photo.
    A very well balanced picture.
    Best regards, Paul

    Hello Malgo,
    A picture from better times. Taken only seven years ago but it seems to be from a distant past.
    I was there in summer of 1987. Hard to imagine that such a beautiful society has ended in the most terrible war.
    Regarding the picture: a nice detail: the komboloi the man in the middle is holding in his hand fits perfectly with the chairs they are sitting on.
    Best regards, Paul

    Hello Serghei,
    I can't remember to have seen a night view of the Baha'i Temple before.
    But also surrounded by the dark it looks magnificent although quite different from on pictures taken during the day.
    Excellently exposed and a beautiful alternation of dark and white parts on the long staircase.

    Hello Kari,
    These cottages are beautiful. Especially on these pictures (your main photo and the ones you're referring to) when they're painted red and surrounded by heaps of snow.
    I also like the many gently wavy lines of the snow here.

    You haven't been active for a while and now you returned with an eye-catching landscape. I really like the contrast between the deep-blue sky and the yellow bamboo bridge.

    Dear Gert,

    So I have to miss those gritty and wonderful analog photos for a while? :( Anyway, this picture is good enough to make me forget. I like how the tree frames the man looking at the sea.

    Hello Gy,
    Wow ! I really like this one.
    Impressive view of the wooden walkway to the watchtower, so high above the village and the surrounding fields and hills.
    Excellent framing with the rock at the bottom and the stone arch at the three other sides.
    Perfect sharpness and so beautiful in black & white.

    Hello Angel,
    Yes, that is a wonderful castle, even when you were on the wrong time when there were scaffoldings.
    Impressive how the castle rises above the plain and the lake.
    From your well chosen point of view you could well include lots of greenery and give the picture a nice framing on the left.
    Excellent clarity and sharpness.

    Hello Silvio,
    Another splendid picture whereby the viewer is guided in two directions: upstairs to the door or under the arch down the street.
    Every corner in these towns is incredibly picturesque.

    Hi, Paul,
    Yep, I do remember this city was one of the most important crime news makers three tens years ago. Medllin and Pablo Escobara were the most popular names from Colombia on TV.
    Very nice peaceful daily life scene, excellent colors and the interesting details. TFS!

    Bonsoir Denis,
    L'arc en ciel semble protéger le village sur la pente raide. Ou au moins la partie inférieure.
    De superbes couleurs des rochers, bien en contraste avec les espaces verts.
    Très jolie avec les nombreuses fleurs au premier plan.
    Un peu dommage de la balustrade de la route avant droite mais si vous aviez pris une position plus basse vous aviez probablement manqué le village.
    En tout cas une magnifique photo !
    Amicalement, Paul

    Hello Craig,
    It looks a bit like they've prepared the ghats for sunbathers :) Sorry, that might be a bit disrespectful.
    But I've never seen a picture of the ghats while they were so empty. I mean without people.
    The view of the city along the Ganges becomes very hazy further away. But the bright colours on the foreground draw our full attention.
    Best regards, Paul
