    Hi Ann!
    The high key works perfectly here, it looks like a painting. Very good pov also. The details of the houses and the bare trees are just perfect, that's a place I would surely like to visit!

    Hi Gerrit!
    Very nice portrait! This reminds me of my trip to Africa, I've been wanting to return since then. I just love the curious expressions and poses for your camera - tourists must be a rare species in this area. You captured some very good details also, such as the houses.

    Hi Roland!
    This is a very beautiful city and you got a good shot of the canal. I like the format, the colours and the great light, specially with those dark clouds.

    Hi Denis!
    This is a fantastic moment! Everything is on the right place, the rainbow, the tree in the middle and even the graphism of the field. Well captured with great colours!

    Hi Ghislaine!
    This is a really great pov! Your photo gives a very good idea about the place, the colourful houses are just fantastic on the rocks. Well framed with the plants in foreground.

    Hi Rosemary!
    A very simple detail that worked so well and made a very good composition. I like the colours and the textures you captured and the foam creates a very nice effect also.

    Hello Will,

    How beautifully you've framed the scene — the microscopic island connected to the mainland by the little land bridge. The lighting is so much better than when I saw it two years ago in September 2012. I am grateful for the note, precisely because our guide had little to say about the celebrities who gallivanted there, nor its connection to its dalliance (or lack of) in Yugoslavia's communist past.

    Warm regards,

    Bulent

    Hello Agnes,

    I love this composition, a serene scene of the silhouette of the fortress. It looks so peaceful with the waves rolling in gently.

    Hello Ana,

    Superb composition in producing this architectural portrait, with the pair of people adding a touch of humanity. The note, however, is disturbing, the practice of self-immolation of young women in this culture — their treatment then... and the treatment now (that bus incident a few years ago).

    Warm regards,

    Hello Malgo,

    You've composed the shot perfectly, and framed it in as close a golden rectangle as my eyes can pick up without measuring it (1:1.618). It is a bit unusual to see the dominant color in the bride's choice of wedding dresses, On Nov. 3, we were in Honolulu on the beach and I took a photo of a young couple... just getting married. With a long lens I captured the scene on the beach, surrounded by a few strangers gallivanting on the sand.

    Warm regards,

    Bonjour Denis,

    The shimmering reflections in the water, a generallyl monochromatic scene punctuated by the red buoys and a small white boat, all elements of a very good composition. Warm regards,

    Greeting Klaudio,

    With the sepia colors, it is even more evocative of a piece of garden sculptor than iff were in color. The acrobatic mother and daughter... playing on the grass, befitting Western Europe, or that outpost of Wester Europe, Australia. You would not see such playful scenes in countries with abject poverty. Well done.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Gerrit,

    You've captured the face of cruel poverty in the faces and demeanor of these innocent children. It tears at my heart strings to see such abject poverty, and it is all they know. There is a simple pyramidal structure in their grouping that adds to the composition. Well done photo, if not terribly disturbing scene.

    Warm regards,

    Greetings Iain,

    A beautiful portrait of the old gal, who has seen so much. But without your note, it would just be a very good photograph. There is symbolism in the rope (replete with a complex knot) hanging next to her, somewhat bothersome... perhaps suggesting a martyr of some sort. Although her face is located well in the frame, I wonder if a very much closer crop would not make it even more dramatic. That 97° heat, especially for October, would be suffocating in itself.

    Warm regards,

    Bulent

    Really beautiful! The colours and the focus are just great and you got a very nice pose also. I like the combination of colours and the textures of the brick.

    Hello Christina,

    There is an element of Hencri Cartier-Bresson in this haunting composition. Great art is open ended, inviting viewers to interpret the work, and a thousand different interpretations emerging. I like your photo very much, and so too the note.

    Amazing design and colors, created by garish colors. The faces, eyeglasses, masks... You've captured the essence of this eye-catching corner perfectly.
