    Hello Paja,
    this picture is very well composed and captured with wonderful light that brought out rich textures and attractive colours. I like the dominant role of the broken window in the tight vertical frame, it is very interesting to have a vague glimpse of the interior as well as a reflection on the dusty window pane. The shadows add a sense of drama, your own shadow features a personal involvement that adds to the story. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great weekend,

    Hello John,
    this is a very delightful picture due both to the scenery and the fine sunshine. I like how you placed the iconic windmill in the right side of the frame and in the distant background. It stands out against the smooth blue sky and there is ample space left in the frame for a wonderful description of the surrounding scenery. The colours look beautiful and vivid in the sunshine. The different point of view you included in the workshop is very enjoyable too. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Ray,
    some architectural and artistic details are missing but the shape of the building is very attractive, the reflection is fascinating and the mood of the scene very delightful. I like very much the way you played with symmetry and the totally different versions of the same subject. The reflection is so vibrant and attractive and offers a stunning, contrasting view of the elegant structure that must have a very imposing presence in the park. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great weekend,

    Καλησπέρα Δάνο,
    τι όμορφη, ατμοσφαιρική εικόνα! Εξαιρετική η σύνθεση σε ένα πλήρες κάθετο κάδρο, πολύ ελκυστική η πληθώρα των μοτίβων που δημιούργησε η Φύση σε αυτή τη γωνιά της λίμνης. Μου αρέσει πάρα πολύ η χρωματική αρμονία και το πέρασμα της ομίχλης ανάμεσα στα κλαδιά. Οι αντανακλάσεις ενισχύουν τη μαγεία του σκηνικού. Μια εικόνα υπέροχη, υποβλητική και γεμάτη χάρη. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
    Να είσαι καλά, καλό Σαββατοκύριακο,
    Ουρανία

    Hello Jean,
    I like very much the way you arranged this captivating scenery in a panoramic composition, the graphic layout is elegant and it is amazing how deep and clear the view is and how many details we have the opportunity to discover in it. The snowy part is bright and attractive but the subtle colour palette manages to make a decisive impact as well. I also enjoy the play of scale and the timelessness. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonjour Denis,
    a very attractive presentation of this old lighthouse, you found an exquisite perspective and I like very much the way it is placed between the ruined building and the vast seascape. The sky is a magnificent backdrop that adds to the intriguing atmosphere too. You achieved superb definition all over and the combination of colours creates a pleasant and coherent image. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Paul,
    a beautiful day indeed, the city looks so vibrant and graphic in this lovely light and the well defined details all over draw us into a long and rewarding exploration of the scenery. I like how you accentuated the graphic aspect of this wonderful view, the blue areas create delightful and effective framing. The sense of scale is fascinating too. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Aleksander,
    the peaceful scenery that looks gorgeous in the sunset colours, you captured a wonderful palette and enhanced its impact through a careful and effective contrast management. I like the depth of this scene and its subtle dynamism, the different structures coexist harmoniously in a fine atmosphere. The capture of the fleeting moment is superb. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Denis,
    The colours give immediate visual impact and the blue, green and yellow are so good together. I think that the small lighthouse in the distance makes this a superb composition giving a place for the eye to rest.
    Gorgeous scenery and so well photographed.

    The lovely winter sun has lit up the old buildings very well. The lamp and the tree branches all add to a very enjoyable composition. The snow is a real bonus for the picture.

    Hello Mesut,
    You have surely enjoyed your winter vacation in France.
    Snowy mountainous landscapes look wonderful on a bright sunny day as on the picture you present us here.
    The pinkish walls and tower of this charming little church add colour to the image while the tower points well to the blue sky.
    Nice contrast between the sunlit parts and the dark forests on the mountain slopes.
    Best regards, Paul

    Hello Ricardo,
    Many years ago I have visited Ouro Preto. I remember well the wonderful architecture that you present us here.
    The old bus adds an extra charm on this picture of the town in Portuguese colonial architecture with the streets of cobblestones.
    Very picturesque corner in a clear, sharp and well composed image.

    Hello Malgo,
    It is the first time that I see a picture of a mural of the Madres de Plaza de Mayo. I did not even know they existed (I mean the murals).
    You are right to show that picture here.
    Honestly I think that most graffiti is not street art at all. You find it in the streets but most of it is not art. Usually I hate it.
    This is completely different. I appreciate it very much if certain political or social views are expressed by drawings on the walls.
    It is a very sad part of the Argentinian history. I heard that even only today mature people find their real parents or grandparents back. It is something we may never forget. Even today on different places in the world young children are kidnapped for political or military reasons. So it is not something that happened only in the past.
    It is very good that you present us this image of Buenos Aires that is referring to a very sensitive issue in the country.
    Nice inclusion of the window and the young man leaning against the wall. The other person came apparently unexpectedly into the picture.
    Excellent contribution on your travel report.
    PS: As Denis already mentioned, it are the apostrophes that are problematic. On TE we will have to learn to write in a different language :)
    Best regards, Paul
