    Hello Robert,
    This is a very eye-catching and elegant composition. It's cleverly and carefully made and neatly cropped. The light is excellently handled and the clouds create a fantastic background.

    Hello Jasmine,
    Welcome back. This is a remarkably elegant staircase with a very nice brown frame. Usually staircases are photographed from above, so this is a welcome new angle. The beautiful walls are very well illuminated.

    Hello John,
    I have seen more artistically created graffiti but there is nothing wrong with the intensity of the colours. I am convinced that the army barracks were a lot greyer when they were still used for military purposes. It seems that those who made this couldn't agree on the design.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Craig,
    This would have been taken moments before or after an earlier photo from the same spot. The light is slightly different but the view is the same. It is beyond doubt a terrific view and I understand that you snapped away as much as you could while the light lasted. But you should be careful jumping on slippery rocks. Didn't you injure a leg or a foot in similar circumstances somewhere else? Greece maybe.
    Best wishes,
    Gert

    Hello Bev,
    Isn't it amazing what a few swans can do to a photo? The tree is beautiful and the shadows create a fine pattern on its trunk, but it's the swans that are mainly responsible for the pleasant atmosphere of this photo.

    Hello Mesut,
    A wonderful view of the dense forests of Turkey's northeastern Black Sea coast. It's a very well exposed photo which captures the clouds and sky perfectly.
    The first time I travelled through this area, crossing the mountains from Erzurum to Trabzon, I was amazed at the views. I could hardly believe I was still in Turkey. It was so different from the Anatolian interior.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    I understand that this was an exciting experiment for you. You captured the intensity of the low sun excellently. It looks like it's burning through a part of the city wall and embraces the cars and the street. The elegant wall was a well chosen place for your amusement. It creates a superb silhouette with fine details, and a palm is perfectly placed inside one of the vaults.
    Kind regards,

    A fine photo with a good symmetry. Even the lamps inside the windows fit the pattern. Only the man breaks this symmetry in a very nice way and adds a nice human touch.

    Hello Claude,
    You found an amusing triangular view of the trumpet player. The composition makes me think of a poster for a Wild West movie, but these people have drawn their musical instruments instead of guns. This is very much to prefer.

    Hello Ryszard,
    From the thumbnail I was sure this was an extravagant piece of graffiti, and indeed there are similarities. It's a beautiful and very eye-catching work of public art, ideally made for photographs. You made a very good choice to include the photographer for the life and dimensions he adds.

    Hello Malgo,
    The beach as such is fine, but I can feel right through the screen of my monitor that this is not Greece or Spain, even though there are cloudy days in the Mediterranean area as well. I wouldn't even dip my toes in this probably ice cold water. But it was a good place for relaxing a while and the children playing in the sand are cute and seem to have fun.
    But I was surprised to see that you were not wearing sandals! :-)
    Kind regards,

    Hello Maria,
    As long as we don't actually see the trash, the filter makes a very elegant curve, ideal for a photo along with the birds sitting on it. The golden waves are very beautiful and the light is also shining nicely on the wooden poles that create a fine background. You made a very good observation of the beauty of simplicity.

    Hello Maged,
    Apart from the cars and maybe a few other details this photo has the character and colours of a 19th century painting. I like the depth you have achieved through the canal and the view of the masts in the harbour. The clouds are beautiful and the light is very attractive.
    Kind regards,
