    Hello Piotr,

    I will have to explore more of Slovakia when I go back in September. So far I have only spent time in Bratislava. Good sharpness and the colorful fg red flowers add depth and a pleasant warm cold color contrast with the blue sky. The double onion-domed tower at right makes an obvious focal point and is well placed on the 1/3 vertical axis. Tfs.

    Hello Ike!

    I will have to look at a map to see how close I was to seeing this town. I spent some time in Bavaria last year. Good sharpness with attractive warm colors and interesting old sundial at the bottom contrasting well with the clock at the top. The vertical frame works well. Tfs.

    Hello Silvio,

    The dark green segment top right doesn't really bother me but the image looks stronger when it's cropped. Fantastic array of color with good use of a shallow dof and a nice catch of the woman photographer at work. She adds scale and context. Tfs.

    Hello Mariusz

    The weather and lighting were kind to you here. Good density levels with solid blacks and clean whites that give excellent tonal contrasts and superb saturation. The woman in the hot pink sets up an immediate warm cold color contrast against the blue sky. Tfs.

    Czesc Maciej,
    jak zupelnie inaczej wyglada to samo miejsce sfotografowane za dnia i podczas blue hour. Nie musze mowic ktore robi wieksze wrazenie. Fajnie jest mieszkac w ciekawym miejscu ktore ma cos do sfootgrafowania wieczorna godzina. Musze przyznac ze mialem przez pol zycia szczescie ale ostatnio mi nie dopisuje.
    Warszawa wydaje sie miec mnostwo ciekawych obiektow dobrze podswietlonych noca.
    Jeszcze chyba nie widzialem zdjecia Palacu Lazienkowskiego o blue hour.
    Zastanawia mnie troche dlaczego w odbiciu niebo jest czarne.
    Piekna praca!

    Hi Noel,

    The backlight has been well managed and the silhouetted castle makes an interesting backdrop. Good sharpness and nice sparkles on the water. The diagonal sunbeams add dynamism. Tfs.

    Ciao Carlo

    A splendid warm vs cold color comtrast between the ripening yellow-red grain in the fg and the bg blue sky with fantastic sharpness, saturation and color. The few green ears in the fg add depth and layering. The hillside village makes a fine focal point. Tfs.

    Hello Nicolas

    Nice reflections in the fg water and the boat is well positioned at the top of the frame. Good color, sharpness and saturation. I like the repetition of the tyres at the top and their dark tones add a nice graphic element. Tfs.

    Hello Nicolas,

    A very pretty scene of the cloud shrouded alps. Good sharpness and punchy light contrasts with superb saturation. Fortunately all the volcanic activity is in Italy and to a lesser extent, Greece. The diagonal slopes add dynamism. Tfs.

    Hi Eleu,

    A superb aerial shot of the US flag for Independence Day. Good sharpness and density levels. Excellent warm cold color contrasts between the red and blue. The parachutist animates the scene and provides scale. The blue sky makes a wonderful backdrop. Tfs.

    Czesc Krzysztof,
    Twoj reportaz z Bayreuth, miedzy innymi to zdjecie przypomina mi znowu ze w Niemczech kazde male miasteczko moze zawierac interesujace skarby, wszystko jest czyste i zadbane i po prostu warto jechac do sasiedniej wioski zeby ja zaobaczyc i dac sie zaskoczyc. Niestety jak juz wspominalem nie jest tak w Anglii. Moze dlatego ze tu przeciaz dotad panuje monarchia a wiec pieniadze byly trzymane w jednych rekach, podczas gdy Niemcy to zwykle bylo mnostwo malych niezaleznych ksiastewek i pieniadze byly bardziej rozporowadzone.
    Przyjemna uliczka, ladna architektura, dobrze zadbane. Swietne zywe kolory.
    Pozdrawiam serdecznie,
    M

    Hi Gert,
    I like those huge clocs, they are very decorative. Probably not very practical though. I have seen one of those in Lubeck.
    I have laughed reading your self criticsm and how surprised you were that Swedes did not steal the clock :)
    By the way I spent my day yesterday at IKEA :)
    I did not steal anything -just the opposite I felt like I left too much money over there.

    I started to appreciate people in the photos, mainly when I looked at your older shots. People seem sodifferent with different clothes and cars.
    What seems normal and average in this phot may seem funny 20 years from now.

    Very well done!

    Hi Ike,
    I am quite surprised by how many archeological sites are there in your counry but also how almost nothing is left at all from the old structures. In Greece there are usually couple of columns still standing, here everything is in ruins. Although I belive this Greek sites may have been a bit reconstructed meaning the three columns still standing in Delphi are a reconstruction, otherwise it would look exactly like in your picure.
    Nice side light, good decorated with palm trees.
    Very good presentation,
    M
