    Hello Luciano,
    A place with a very sad history.
    On the picture the island looks a lot more enjoyable today.
    A good composition and an excellent capture of this small bay.
    A nice red-blue contrast.
    Good that you've included the small beach on the foreground. Pretty with the black boulders in the pink sand.
    Best regards, Paul

    Hello Luis,
    Primošten, another pearl on the Adriatic Sea.
    It looks like a fantastic place with the sea at three sides. Beautiful red roofs in contrast with the blue all around.
    I was surprised to read in your note that there's a second peninsula nearby, a green one. And it's even more surprising that one of both is densely built and the other one has remained natural.
    Best regards, Paul

    Bonsoir Jean,
    Peut-être le paysage n'est pas vraiment spectaculaire mais très très beau.
    La route sinueuse - avec la voiture au bon endroit - est un élément merveilleux de l'image.
    Un particulièrement beau ciel.

    Hello Malgo,
    According to my humble opinion you've chosen the most attractive one to post as main picture.
    It is also a pleasant street view and I believe more interesting than the close-up the two girls have taken.
    I read the commentary of Craig and yes, I agree, the situation feels a bit sad for the older gentleman.
    In such a situation, I believe I would have refused that these girls took a picture of me.
    Best regards, Paul

    Hello Craig,
    Both pictures are fine and show the beautiful coastline.
    My preference goes to the one you have chosen as main picture. In a natural environment you don't need to have a human presence, I think. Not like on pictures taken in cities. However, people on the image can give the viewer a better idea of the scale, which in this case isn't really necessary.
    Further, I like the composition here, the sharpness and the natural colours, especially of the cool blue water.
    Best regards, Paul

    Bonsoir Gigi,
    Un autre endroit fantastique et très coloré à la mer en Italie!
    Vous avez cherché un lieu très bien situé pour cette vue de dessus.
    Un cadre spectaculaire de ce village, très bien présenté.
    Très beau avec le cactus au premier plan.

    Bonsoir Gigi,
    Un endroit extraordinaire à la mer! Un site unique.
    Merveilleux, ces bâtiments colorés au milieu d'une région très boisée.
    Une très bonne composition et une magnifique vue entre les arbres et les arbustes.
    Aussi une belle vue sur le port de plaisance.

    Bonsoir Philippe,
    Le seul problème avec les pigeons est qu'ils vivent massivement dans certaines villes et qu'ils font le cadre de vie de l'homme très sale.
    Une belle présentation de ces oiseaux sur les branches avec peu de feuillage.

    Bonsoir Philippe,
    En lisant votre note, je suis heureux que je ne suis pas propriétaire d'un château :)
    Dans un pays comme la France avec ses nombreux châteaux il est nécessaire de payer de grosses sommes pour les maintenir tous.
    Ici, vous nous présentez ce château d'un bon angle et avec un bon cadre de branches et d'arbres.
    Excellente netteté et composition.

    Hi, dear Malgo!
    This is very familiar place for me, I know all trails around the public library. Very nice evening colors indeed! I was surprised the central part of B-ham is so small... I could cross the city a few times per day ;)

    Hi, Murat,
    I also have a few photos of similar buildings from New York city. They look like the Flatiron Building ;)
    Although this is a classic solution for this kind of the crossroads. Beautiful daily life photo!
    We also have the sunny warm spring days now.

    A beautiful combination of blue and white for this facade. An appropriate reference to lace but I wouldn't have thought of it.

    Hello Malgo,
    An excellent spring picture!
    The beautiful light, the many colours and the flowers put us all in a spring mood.
    Now we have beautiful weather too in Belgium but the cold and rainy weather has lasted a long time this year.
    You present the castle here from a good angle, in an excellent composition, with an attractive framing by the leaves on the top and with good sharpness and depth.
    A gorgeous picture!

    Hello Malgo,
    I have seen pictures of the red cacao fruit before but this is the first time that I get a view of the inside. Very strange.
    Living in Belgium, of course I'm a chocolate lover :)
    Beautiful sharp views from close by.
    Why only a few days left to post pictures of Cuba?
