    OMG! I think, Benny, this bear does it not for sugar only.
    This is very impressive show but I don't like the process of animal training. Anyway, excellent photo, well captured.

    Have a nice weekend!

    Hello Chris,
    Not only a stark contrast with the events of 1914 but also with what happened in the 90-s.
    I visited Sarajevo in 1982 and at that time it was an example of a good coexistence between the different communities. But suddenly that kind of society could disappear. I really wonder how this city and its habitants are doing nowadays ... We don't have much news about Bosnia or Sarajevo.
    The scene doesn't only look peaceful but also as a very nice place to live with much greenery around the houses. I guess you must also have enjoyed the old town of Sarajevo.
    Best regards, Paul

    Hello, Gert,
    I have visited the Western part of Slovakia in 2001. And this country seems me not for tourists. Honesty, the local people told me about the lifestyle of Slovalians. It is not Czech Republic, so slowly service, some special mentality. And I have not the best memories about my trip there.
    Anyway, I like your report and I hope you were lucky in this country.

    Best wishes,

    Hi, Alexandre,
    Well, this falls is not so big as Niagara Falls, for example. But if it has 80 m I think this is very expressive view, I can imagine this power of the water. I like your point of view, just impressive composition, fine details of the background.
    Best wishes,

    Beautiful on this this picture that is almost completely in blue.

    Hello Pedro,
    Very beautiful architecture and colours seem to play an important role in the old town of Cartagena.
    Most people have looked for a place in the shadow. I think it can be very hot at the Caribbean coast. The pigeons fill well the empty space on the foreground.

    Hello Bülent,
    An extraordinary natural phenomenon presented in an attractive way with pretty warm colours that are nice in contrast with the blue water.
    I really like the inclusion of that small part of the sea, also because the sea still plays a role in the myth.
    I wonder what the height of these basalt columns on the foreground is ...

    Hello Maciej,
    I have a little preference for the picture in the workshop where the green surroundings have a significant presence. But the main picture is also excellent with both towers and domes side by side.
    Wonderful presentations!

    Hello Beverley,
    That Medieval Festival must have offered lots of excellent photo opportunities.
    The old costumes help to create an atmospheric image. There's of course the brilliant scenery of ancient towers and walls in disrepair that makes the ideal location for such a festival.
    A colourful and lively scene on a most attractive place.

    Hello Malgo,
    I love the colour uniformity of the buildings and this in combination with the green countryside behind the city.
    The dark walls and tiles on the foreground are a nice frame at the bottom and create an impression of having found a secret place with a splendid view.

    Dag John,
    Er is iets heel bijzonders en moois met deze lucht. We zien een beeld van een vlak landschap met wolken in de lucht die net boven het hoofd lijken te hangen. Niet alsof deze foto op zeeniveau genomen werd maar ergens op een hoogplateau.
    Verder heeft dit beeld ook iets van oneindigheid en ook dat heeft met die prachtige lucht te maken.
    Uiteraard weer een kwaliteitsvolle foto op vlak van compositie, scherpte, diepte en met een goede groen-rood-blauw combinatie.
    Vele groeten, Paul

    Hello, Philippe,

    This is very unusual view of château. I'd like say you true. I think it was not the best idea to place this stick in the center of the composition, it breaks all balance here. Although I really like this old castle, it looks good on the background.

    Have a nice weekend!

    Hi, Maciej,
    I think this tower with the gates seems like a face of fairy-tale head. The windows are two eyes, and the gate is a big mouth, right? Superb colors! This blue-red combination reminds me my visit to Malbork.

    Excellent view from New Jersey to Manhattan. Amazing optical effect, it looks like a combination of the real boat and picture on the background. I also like the colors and perfect sharpness on the background.

    Fine colours and reflections, Serge, but I wonder if a closer crop of just boat and skyline wouldn't result in an even stronger shot.
