    Hello Jean,
    An excellent and very attractive composition. It's always interesting to see painters at work, even though we can't see his painting here. It's enough to see what captured his interest, and we can imagine what the painting will look like. I love the orange triangle of the roof, umbrella and the wooden box. Even the table and the folding chair have the same tone, which contrasts the green grass perfectly. This is a very pleasant photo with a good atmosphere of summer.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Jean Claude,
    It's a nice view and the photo is very well exposed. I like that you show us two staircases going in different directions with the magnificent flowers at the corner. The lamp and bench are nice features and I also like the well designed street sign on the wall to the left.

    Hello Daniel,
    I like how every balcony, including its doors and windows, is different from the rest. It looks like every apartment is individually designed. That certainly adds a lot of charm to this building where the standard of living may not be so very high. I like the inclusion of the three half cars, all of different colours.

    Hello Chris,
    This is not a very frequent destination at TE, and certainly this is the most interesting photo so far. We can see several very different parts of the town and the steep mountains just outside. Lots of fine details make a close look worthwhile. The weather seems to have been acceptable ;-).

    Hello Serghei,
    Nice to see you back. To describe a surface of water as looking like a mirror may be a cliché, but what else could I say about this absolutely calm water? The reflections of the building and the trees are perfect. The light and colours are very pleasant too.

    Hello Nicolas,
    Yes, this looks like a volcano. I didn't know there were any in Switzerland ;-). It's a fine photo and the dark cloud creates a nice balance to the mountain and partly fills the upper corner of the photo.

    What a strange and fascinating place. The red tore is superbly place by the blue hell and also matches the green surroundings well. It's a very refined arrangement and a good photo with nice light.

    Hello Les,
    Although your note is mainly about the church, it was quite correct to dedicate the title to the clouds, which are certain to catch everybody's attention. I am sure you gave them some PP assistance, but their shapes are magnificent in any case. The lower half of the photo does well on its own. The church and the cows look equally nice and idyllic.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Maciej,
    The village church is small but it has a simple dignity that makes it as beautiful as many large cathedrals. You have taken a nice photo with very good colours and the trees are well used as frames.

    Hello Danos,
    Not only Greece, but all of Europe, is facing a dramatic week with an uncertain and potentially disastrous outcome. We can only hope that the current crisis can be overcome through co-operation and mutual respect. As for the photo it gives us a good idea of the strong impact of the situation on the Greek nation.

    Hello Bev,
    You show us a very nice portrait and a rather unusual one for TE. Llamas are known for spitting people in their faces if they get angry, but this one seems to be in a very good mood. And who wouldn't, being courted by so many friendly children? I like this photo also for the inclusion of the children in the background. Together they tell us a little story.

    Hello Aleksander,
    For this photo the dull weather was a blessing. The grey clouds (very well treated in PP) create a superb background to the colorful swing. I love the very simple but refined composition and you placed the "legs" perfectly in the corners. A very elegant photo.

    Hello Luciano,
    This is a remarkable shopping centre with a lot more atmosphere than most streamlined modern malls. It's a good thing, at least for the photo, that it is not so crowded. We can have a good look at the architecture and the goods displayed. The HDR treatment has produced excellent colors and very fine shades and has also given the photo a strong 3D character.
    I think you uploaded this already yesterday, but I didn't haver time to look at it any closer. Is the HDR the new addition?
    Kind regards,

    Hello Brenda,
    This is not just an ingenious work of engineering, it's also a beautiful piece of architecture and a very good photo. You have used the light very well and captured the fine patterns among the mirrors and reflector panels. It reminds me of the popular photos of spiral staircases, but this is still something entirely different.
    Kind regards,

    You have composed this photo very well by including the large statue and some people that animate the scene. Especially I like the hugging couple to the right. The photo gives us a good idea of the Cloth hall but puts the people in the foreground, which I appreciate.

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    A fine picture, as always, with a beautiful warm light shining on the elderly men who look quite comfortable leaning on the mud wall. The camels and the very simple huts - looking rather African - form an interesting and exotic background. These men look quite content with what they have (and I wouldn't be surprised to learn that each one has bought himself a mobile phone).
    Kind regards,
