    Hello György,
    This is a fantastic landscape and you composed this well with the dark brown area separated from the yellow rapefield by a green line. The elegantly shaped clouds are given a generous share of the photo,

    Hello Malgo,
    So you have spring in Warsaw? In the Netherlands, Belgium and Scandinavia autumn has returned. It's cold and rainy and not very pleasant.
    This is a good picture with beautiful flowers and a nice palace.

    Hello Benny,
    I remember this tree, or rather these trees, and the many amusing Bosch monsters placed here and there around town. As for his paintings I found them more easily enjoyed at the JB art center ( although just copies) than the real ones in the museum. Since "everyone" was there it wasn't that easy to see them carefully (but maybe you are 2 meters tall, I'm not).
    :-(

    Hello Paul,
    This is a remarkably good photo from Valparaiso, and quite original too because it shows so much more than the famous colourful houses. Especially the mountain ranges in the background are beatifully shrouded in the haze. I always enjoy photos that don't show the ordinary standard views.

    It's a very beautiful building and it looks like they took great care to restore it respectfully. The people contribute well to the composition.

    Hello Will,
    I sometimes feel as old and tired as the man to the left, but I try hard not to show it. And no matter how old I get I will never wear socks and sandals.
    I also wish Cristina would start posting again.
    It's a good photo. I wish I had taken it.

    Hello John,
    I don't know anything about the Nik software, but I know that I see an excellent photo reminding me of some kind of etching from rather long ago. The effect of what you have done to this wild and desolate scenery is astonishing.

    Hello Rob,
    This is an excellent creation of street art, beautiful and innovative.
    Your description of the weather sounds very much like s'-Hertogenbosch, except for the snow, but we had heavy, wet snow in Stockholm on Sunday.

    Hello György,
    I agree that this is the better photo. It is "tighter" and "cleaner" and it follows the rules that ban self-portraits ;-). It's a street-photo of the kind I like where not much is really happening but we can make up our own story.

    Hello Ourania,
    This is a very well captured moment with beautiful light, bright colours and lots of fine diagonals. I love the triangle made by the ropes connecting the boys' red and orange shirts with the yellow bollard. It is a photo full of action and excitement.

    Hello Will,
    The pillars are leaning heavily but it is nevertheless a very well balanced photo from this iconic place. I was lucky to find a monk for the foreground when I was there, but the tourists are better than having nobody at all. Is the old Austin, used by the first monk to go to Saigon to burn himself to death, still there? I saw it in 1993. (Not that it was very interesting as such.)
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Rob,
    Seen as silhouettes against the quite spectacular sky these people look like a monument on their own. You observed and placed them very well. The airplane is a bonus.
    I plan to spend a day (not staying overnight) in Haarlem between the 7 and 10 of May. Would you have time for a brief meeting with a beer or a coffee any of those days? And of course Lars, if he is free and interested.
    Best regards,

    Hello Andrew,
    You have used the famous palace as a backdrop to a more interesting view in the foreground, just like I try to do whenever possible. The man passing by seems to be glancing at the pram, maybe trying to see if there is a purse or small bag that could be easily snatched while the parents are busy. Maybe then he noticed you and realized there was a witness. The B&W conversion, as always, seems to bring us a few decades back.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Bev,
    This is a wonderful composition, looking entirely spontaneous while following every "rule" I can think of. People walking along a diagonal path, fine balance between the nearest couple and the yellow flowers, the bushes and the woman in pink placed on thirds and the inspiring ruined castle as a perfect focal-point in the background. The weather was nice and sunny and you got yourself a perfect photo. That was a day to remember.

    Hello Ourania,
    For once here are wires that don't disturb the view but have an important function for the composition. The birds have a lovely view of the surroundings, at least if they turn their heads around and look back. But maybe they have other things on their minds. At least we can enjoy the original church on the hillside and the bright light.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    A very pleasant composition of the three persons riding their horses along the road that seems to go through a tunnel of trees. I like the mild colours produced by the lack of direct light.

    This is an excellent and simple composition of the kind that says "less is more". I like very much the triangle of the biker and the two kayakers, who also add nice colors to the view.
