    Hello Angel,
    Wonderful small houses and a magnificent fortress. The roofs and the lampposts give the view fine depth, and the sky has just enough light clouds to give the photo further liveliness. As always in your photos the colours are extremely fine and the composition is beautiful and well balanced.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Mesut,

    Stained glass are not easy objects to photograph and I admire your undertaking. Here, you have a good framing of this symetrical glass with good details over the light coming in. It comes to my mind that the black bands with white dots on each side makes it look like a piece of a film strip.

    Best regards

    Hello Satya,
    Yes, it's a bit similar but with a slight change of perspective, putting the building to the left into the focus. So many Indian towns are full of these remarkable old style houses, sometimes crumbling from age. I think any view from Trichy would look nice as long as the Rockfort is included somewhere in the background.

    Hello Miro,
    In spite of the enormous growth of Kathmandu, Durbar Square seems to be just the same as decades ago. But even here there is a great difference. Paying an entrance fee to a public place sounds too me quite outrageous. It would have been impossible 40 years ago, when most tourists were students and hippies with little money. There were rather few well off middle class visitors in those days. Anyway, the pigeons, buildings and the colorful saleswomen look the same. I like the small child in the shady corner at the top, easily overlooked because of the brighter light and colours in the central area.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Khoa,
    This is a well taken photo from perfect point of view. I like the vertical shape which seems to underscore the movement of the bikes. The grey paving creates a fine backdrop to the colorful cyclists and their helmets.

    Hello Malgo,
    I am pleased to see that you have fulfilled yet another dream. Forces of nature such as these surely can't leave anyone indifferent. It's a majestic sight and interesting to see the different colours, depending I guess on the levels of dirt in different sections of the river. It's well composed with the lower part obscured by the clouds of humidity and the "normal" clouds hanging above.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Delphine,
    This is very neatly cropped and graphically attractive. Only some plants near the top break the near total conformity of the lines made by the balconies.This was very well made with a fine greyscale.

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    The precisely applied sharpness and the illumination similar to a spotlight makes this cargo vehicle very obvious, regardless of its far too heavy load. It makes me think of a stupid pop song from approximately 1960, called "Lopsided, overloaded and it wiggled when we rode it". It has its equivalent in the collective "bush taxis" of Asia and Africa taking twice as many passenger as the number of seats.
    Kind regards,

    It's a very pretty church with fine pink walls and a beautiful roof. The person walking by adds some human touch to the composition. I like the fresh brightness of the photo.

    Hello Piotr,
    A very picturesque balance of brown, yellow, green and dark grey tones. The clouds look quite dramatic, enhanced by the light falling on parts of them. I get a sense of an approaching storm. It's a beautiful scenery but also one that demands respect for the forces of nature.

    Une belle teinte bleutée et un effet ruban très bien réussi donnent une image agréable à regarder et le cadrage avec les rochers en copntre-plomgée donne de la profondeur.

    Nice ordinary kids who happen to be novices in a monastery. In their hearts they are just like all other kids around the world, but their clothes are more colorful. There's a nice glimpse of the local architecture in the background.

    Hello Kasia,
    I guess this would have been pretty much a study of white on white even in the original version, but with the conversion you refined that theme. You captured the swans very neatly lined up at regular intervals along a very nice diagonal, all facing the same direction but with very slightly different postures, just enough to give a rhythm to the composition.
    It's a very elegant and appealing photo.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
