    Hello Jean Claude,
    It's a beautiful square looking quite hot. Fortunately several persons didn't mind the sun, which gave you a quite lively photo. The tall palms frame the view elegantly and you managed the bright light very well.

    Hello Frank,
    It's a good composition and the red shirt is definitely an advantage in this green environment. The photo is slightly grey and pale, so some minor processing would have made it a little bit clearer without disturbing the fine haze covering the hills,

    Hello Ourania,
    They were clearly not doing maths, but this game probably also teaches them smart and logical thinking. They were perfectly dressed for a photo, especially with these contrasts of red and green, and acting totally spontaneously. It's an excellent daily life photo, colourful and energetic, and with a very nice light.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Farhat,
    You have been absent a long time so welcome back. I didn't quite expect to see you around again. If this man was slightly disturbed he may not have understood what you were doing, or maybe didn't even notice you. That gave you time to take a good photo in an environment that reminds me of what I saw in Calcutta more than 40 years ago. The colours are fine and you handled the light perfectly.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Christiane,
    A fantastic view of the lake and the surrounding pink and green rocks. It's a magnificent scenery and the boat adds a great detail. The contrast between the white boat and the dark water is lovely. It's a fine photo from a good POV and the clarity is excellent.

    Hello Silvio,
    A wonderful blue hour photo with nicely captured clouds and illuminated fašades of the beautiful buildings. The unusual installation, looking a bit like a giant spider, has created fine lines against the sky which add a further interest to the view.

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    This is a kind of scenery I seldom see in your photos. I almost thought you had been to Scotland. It's a beautiful landscape of gently rolling hills, a rapidly flowing creek and a wall built from rough stones. As always it's nicely composed and the colours are strong and vivid.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Ike,
    These reflections are graphically attractive, partly thanks to the letters seen in the upper right corner. The small areas of yellow and dark blue also add an extra punch to the composition, which otherwise is dominated by the distorted masts. A well observed little work of art.
    Kind regards,

    Hello John,
    I'm not that kind of person, but how tempting it would be to use a sharp object to scratch the polished surface of a Rolls Royce left by its upper class twit owner in a no parking area. Can you find the owner through a public registry so you can threaten him through Facebook? ;-)
    Seriously, it's an interesting and amusing photo and I was really waiting to see what you had done. After seeing Bev's photo today I was sure you couldn't resist something. No doubt it's a magnificent car, and it's fun to watch the action going on. I also enjoy the view of the street.
    Kind regards,

    Fine sculptures in nice surroundings. I like the rounded pattern of the tiles and the trees standing around the terrace. The post-processing created very attractive contrasts.

    Hello Fabiano,
    Nice little cars like this are handy in cities of narrow streets and a lot of traffic. This red car goes well with the colour of the building. It's a quite typical glimpse from Italy.

    Hello Mike,
    I suppose this is not a place for people with lower level incomes, but everyone can afford to admire these buildings from a distance. They look good and the hedges are nicer than regular walls. Just for a change the parked cars actually contribute nicely to the composition. I do find the photo slightly dark though.
    Best regards,

    I didn't see anything like this in Amman, but the umbrellas would do well to protect people from the sun. Beautiful colours with just one red breaking the very discreet pattern.

    Hello Claude,
    The Brexit referendum reminds me of the decision to invade Iraq to stop Saddam Hussein from developing nuclear bombs. No bombs were found and there was no plan for the future of Iraq. We have seen the results of that. Brexit may cause chaos for Europe for a very long time, thanks to politicians who build their careers on easily digested lies. But at least Marine Le Pen is happy.
    And the sign is colourful enough for a photo.

    Hello Burak,
    This is a fine composition with a nice, colourful and lively foreground and an impressive view of the great new bridge in the distance. When I first visited Istanbul there were no bridges at all across the Bosphorus. The city has changed a lot.

    Hello Rob,
    If I tried hard maybe I could copy a Mondrian, but I would never manage a van Dyck, so this woman is obviously talented. I can't see much difference between the original and her copy. What a temptation to add the signature ;-). I like this kind of photos and you found a good angle and good light.

    Hello Malgo,
    The fields and lakes have very nice colours, like those of a traditional landscape painting, but traditional painters rarely got the chance to see a cloud from above. The name of that hill would be impossible in most other countries today. Maybe there are still references to people like Dzerzhinsky in Russia.
    A nice start of the week. Kind regards,

    Hello Bev,
    I think the French revolution was partly a reaction to the behaviour of rich people like this guy, doing whatever they like because they can afford it ;-). On the other hand, if it wasn't for his arrogance you wouldn't have got this photo. The reflections in the polished side of a Rolls Royce are obviously just as amazing as those seen in water. I bet John and Craig also loved to take pictures of this car.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Neyvan,
    Relatively few foreign tourists discover S÷dermalm, they all stay in Gamla stan and the city centre, so I am glad you spent some time on my beautiful island. This is not so far from where I live. The evening light is beautifully captured and you composed this perfectly to include the people on the lawn as well as a good view towards Gamla stan. The red fence is a typical Swedish feature and it has a lovely warm tone,
    Kind regards,
