    Hello Miguel,
    The young persons seem to have a nice time on the grass and the carousel behind them underscores the nice atmosphere. It's well captured pleasant "lawn-shot" with good colours.

    Hello Eleu,
    This is a great and spectacular combination of balloons, moon and strange rocks. You have shown several photos of similar style but each one has a character of its own. Superbly handled colors and light.

    Hello Ourania,
    I experienced such strange African winds on Malta once. The clouds were brown and the rain brought mud from the sky. I found it difficult to take good colour photos in that strange light, but the red ship with the many yellow details helped you to overcome such problems. There is a remarkable intensity of this photo in spite of the dull weather. From this close perspective you have also captured many bold lines of the ship and the ropes. An ordinary view would probably not have looked even half as nice yesterday.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    I like the reflection in the dark window but most of all I like the colours and well captured texture of the bricks.

    You captured this well known building brilliantly with impressive light and very well managed colours. The many people in front of it are a clear benefit to the photo.

    Hello Pavle,
    It was a grey and dull day but the composition with its many diagonals is good. It's a fine view of the river crossed by the bridge and you used the discreet light well.

    Hello Ryszard,
    A simple but elegant composition. The rounded shapes of the chairs contrast nicely with the squares of the floor and the small mounds of grass. It could be difficult to take this photo again in such a busy place.

    Absolutely a strange cat house but they seem to like it. The cats are as always very cute and, as always in Istanbul, they seem to be well fed and cared for.

    Hello Paul,
    Lisbon is probably one of the most beautiful capital cities of Europe and this photo gives us some idea of that. It's a great view and the fountain provides a fine foreground. The beautiful colours are well managed.

    A strangely beautiful but sadly destroyed building. The blue and white tiles and the arched windows must have made it look fantastic "once upon a time".

    Hello Craig,
    A super composition. I really like this kind of medieval brick roofs of tightly packed houses. The red façade is almost as fine as a lady in red. You found a great POV.

    Hello Malgo,
    I was looking again at some of my photos of strange buildings in Batumi and needed to check up if you had shown them. So I stumbled on this photo which I did not see before. It seems a lot had happened in this city only in those less than two years between our journeys. Cable car? I don't think there was any in 2012. It's a very interesting photo and the quality is good, considering it was taken through a window.
    I hope everything is all right in South America.
    Cheers,
    Gert

    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.

    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.
