    Hi Engin
    This is great insight. Impressive the way you have caught the sun light on the side of the monastery. I love the composition with the building structures on the right frame give perspective leading into the whole depth. A quite breathing taking image, with immense detail, colour, interest and clarity in depth. Great photography, much more than a holiday snapshot. Congrats

    Hi Piotr
    A magnificent alpine scene and good sense of terrain & fantastic climate seems like it's inviting you to walk in from bottom right with added interest in the mid fg which adds a great sense of scale. You couldn't wish for a better backdrop than those tremendous ice capped mountains. Excellent composition, colour, and detail.
    Great shot and tfs.

    Hi John
    Impressive shot when the weather is so promising to cheer up the day with a church on the right frame in a beautiful setting, set off by the autumn leaves. A lovely scene, awesome light & shadow for a strong architectural subject beautifully composed and with such splendid seasonal colours. A visual delight! Congrats

    Hi Ourania
    Clouds can be so photogenic with the patterns and colours! This has the quality that is difficult to put in words actually, good use of the fg, the dynamic range and effective composition all weave their beauty with great exposure control. Beautiful mood from the layered depth and contrast. Excellent shot, Congrats

    Hi Gert
    You have found a way to travel back in time, lovely travel photo that tells a story. The cart looked as though it was laid out just for the photo as the composition is just right. Like the details, colours and light in this fine study. Excellent, Congrats

    Hi Piotr.From the mountains to the sea, you are showing us the natural beauty of your country.A very atmospheric shot with a sense of duality between light and shade, plus a rainbow pops in to add to the tug-of-war. Has that man found the end of the rainbow and has put the pot of gold in his bag? Pozdrawiam. Klaudio.

    Hi Malgo. Nic to know that your hearing and eyesight have improved (not that anything was wrong with either) but now you are guaranteed of lasting effectiveness. The colours of the pavilion are a little too gaudy for my taste but it is shown to the best advantage by your POV. Ah, to see the faithful, and one in tears! Pozdrawiam. Klaudio.

    Salam Ali. Wonderful portrait. He looks like a poet, an artist, a modern-day Hafez. Great light management and sharpness. Danos's comment remind me of what a techer in Tabriz said to me- that in East Azerbaijan real Persians are to be found, the others are Greek/ Persian. I found that comment funny because our guide kept saying that the people there don't speak properly and he found it difficult to understand them sometimes.Regards. Klaudio.

    Bonsoir Roland,
    the contrasts are striking while the scene looks spontaneous and quiet, a very playful effect that engages the viewer. Daily life and graphism, real life and commercial glamour, neutral tones and captivating colours. The tight composition is superb, there's enough space for movement, I wonder if walking like this is fun. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a good night,

    Merhaba Ali. Your PP has made the wisps of fog and the reflection look like a supernatural manifestation which contrasts dramatically against the autumn's warm colours.The dark shadows add to the mystery. Selam. Klaudio.

    Hi Costantino. I like the sentiments generated by this photo as one feels the transition in the weather as wind brings clouds which bring rain as the deck seems wet. Yet, the sun is still shining and creates a nice light on the ship's side in contrast to the dark sea. The tilt of the boat makes me feel a if I am on board. Best wishes. Klaudio.

    Ciao cara Gigi,
    questa vista dal mare verso la costa e' splendida, hai prodotto i migliori colori in contrasti affascinanti. La tua composizione e' semplice ed effettiva, evoca anche il senso di viaggio e si aspetta la vista di continuare:) Mi piace molto la tessitura del mare e la descrizione gratificante della citta', piena di dettagli e di colori, vibrante ed invitante. Complimenti e grazie!
    tanti saluti e buona serata,

    Hello Bulent,
    I like this spontaneous portrait very much, the bus window works really well as a frame and it's wonderful that the lady's hand is elegantly placed over the lower side of it. Her smile is lovely, it expresses both her gracious character and her attitude towards you. You have worked on the grey tones very effectively, they are bright and appealing. I definitely prefer the monochromatic version because in it the lady's misty eyes and all the details about her look more intimate and significant. I also like the links that accompany this photo, making your presentation so thorough. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely evening,

    Bonjour Serge,
    what a lovely town, the themes it offers are endless. I wrote a comment on Carlo's photo a little while ago and I'm glad to have another look at this sunny, colourful place once again. I like very much your broad and dynamic composition, the abundance of details that contribute to the wonderful general impression like pieces of a huge puzzle. Clarity and colours are magnificent. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Aleksander,
    an interesting composition with very strong perspective that draws the viewer along the street decisively, then we can go back to the start and study each of the picturesque facades with care. Perhaps the brightness is a little too accentuated, I guess it was the angle of the light that led to this choice. I like how you tucked the cars so neatly, they strengthen the right hand side and don't disturb at all. The details of the architecture are lovely. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely good night,

    Hello Stephen,
    a remarkably clear and interesting interior, to my eyes so exotic and mysterious. I can feel that everything about it has a symbolic value but can't decipher anything. Your picture has fine depth and your light and colour management are excellent. I'm sure you preserved the atmosphere of this historic and intriguing temple very effectively. Congratulations and thank you!

    un angolo di Vernazza molto piacevole, con elementi conosciuti e con dettagli intimi, sempre belli e caratteristici.
