    Wonderful deep blue sky on the background.

    Hallo Gerrit,
    Prachtige foto uit het hedendaagse leven van de Cubanen met beide verplaatsingsmiddelen waarbij het omringende uitbundige groen voor een mooi decor zorgt.
    Ik ben toch wat nieuwsgierig naar wat er acher 'Viva el' volgt ... en het is zeker niet 'revolución' want dat is vrouwelijk.
    Vele groeten, Paul

    Hello Ali,
    A splendid landscape picture of the surroundings of Yazd.
    The sky looks dull but for the rest attractive colours of the desert.
    Excellent perspective.

    Hello Malgo,
    Do you know when these murals have been made?
    Is this a testimony remaining from the time of the demonstrations of the Mothers de la Plaza de Mayo?
    Or is it more recent work?
    Very colourful, well presented with the inclusion of both men but of course it remains a sad history.
    Best regards, Paul

    Hello Maciej,
    You found a good high viewpoint to present this village of white houses all with red tiles, the castle overlooking it and on top the surrounding landscape.
    The whole has very warm tones in a good contrast with the blue sky.
    Very picturesque, very charming and it also looks tranquil and peaceful.

    A beautiful presentation of this procession of monks with that white wall on the background.

    Hello Daniel,
    I have to admit that I wasn't very much impressed by this temple on my visit of La Valletta. But your presentation here is absolutely wonderful.
    A great view upwards, well framed by the branches and especially very attractive looking with the plants and the flowers on the foreground.

    Hello Eleu,
    A very nice sunset picture with that beautifully coloured sky and with both silhouettes on the foreground.
    The sun is setting right behind the pelican so that this bird becomes the main subject of the picture.
    I hope both were able to have fish for dinner.

    Hi Serge,
    This spider like device dripping with light is brilliant, and stands out pertly against the fine silhouette and blue hour sky behind. You really cho a great angle to shoot this and combine two very distinct views in one very attractive shot.

    Hello Jean,
    The weather wasn't really that beautiful but it's certainly a clear panorama picture including also a part of the alcazaba.
    Years ago I also visited Antequera in the month of April and I remember I had sunny weather.
    A nice contrast here between old and new and between the typical whitewashed Andalucian houses and the dark mountainous landscape.
    Best regards, Paul

    Hi Aleksander
    Fantastic beach view, especially the calm mirror like reflection from the standing water in the pool. This water draws the fine gold and coffee colors of the sky down into the ground in a really cool way. Brilliant moment.

    Hi Daniel
    This is a great folly, and your low view here makes the temple stand out as prominently as the acropolis itself. I cannot gauge its size so automatically think of it as a huge Greek temple and that makes the image really attractive. Great idea to include so much colorful foliage below it as well, the color really pops, and the sun is beautifully positioned behind the structure.

    Hi Jean Claude,
    A stunning architectural scene, I love this old building which is immense but graceful. Your timing could not be more perfect in getting this as the old carriage rolled past. Terse is not a single element in the view that distracts from your two very strong subjects of building and carriage. The light is perfect too, cool picture.
    Best wishes
    Noel
