    Hello Satya,
    This photo is also a prize catch. It is so well captured and well composed with a perfect and impressive foreground. I just love the proud grin of the second man from the left and I really like the crowd of people behind these men. There is a lot of colours and life and good action as the men are bringing back their good catch. The fish are heavy but it's not a burden that bothers these men now.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Olivier,
    A very nice and well taken photo with a good foreground and a fine view of the lighthouse and the sea. The colours are fine and the warm light is beautiful.

    Hello Ourania,
    This is a very successful and amusing snap-shot, in the real sense of that word. Your title made me look for somebody else than a cat by the man's head. It's obvious that it is going to jump very soon, so you were lucky to capture this. The poor cat probably got fed up with the man's constant dealings with his mobile phone. It must have been a gift from above that this couple appeared on the balcony of the deserted house on this occasion. I like this nice photo very much.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Wolfgang,
    A fascinating combination of people and poster. The two ladies look so well integrated in the background that I had to look carefully to make sure they were real. Very well seen and cleverly done.

    Hej Trevor,
    Jag håller med John om att den här bilden garanterat är mycket bättre än fotografen i vattnet kunde åstadkomma. Jag tänker alltid så när jag ser bilder av personer som tar bilder. Det är alltid fotografen längst bort som drar vinstlotten. Här har de unga männen placerat sig perfekt, med en blå jacka närmast och en svart och en gul jacka längre bort. Klippan är dramatisk och vacker, men allra vackrast är för mig det fina ljuset och färgerna och triangeln av människr.
    Vänliga hälsningar,

    Hello Aleksander,
    A great light, fine details and wonderful clouds create a very good and slightly nostalgic atmosphere. A perfect way to illustrate the feelings of meeting your school-mates from half a century ago.

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    When I visited Burma in the early 1970's I felt like stepping back into the 30's or 40's. I don't know which decade the country is in now, but this photo has a timeless feeling to it. There is not much of modernization seen here, and that is certainly one of the reasons for the captivating atmosphere. The red moon and purple sky would probably not have created the same mood when shining over a sterile modern cityskape.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Miguel,
    There seems to be a lot of junk here that nobody really needs, but with all their colours they do well in a photo, especially with some people around looking to find something.

    Hello Jason,
    I have rarely seen a picture with so much packed into it, and yet it's not at all confusing. The connecton between the word tandem and the two prams is one of those wonderful coincidences that seem to happen so often when somebody points a camera in an unexpected direction. But this picture is so filled with colors, different architectural styles, plants and signs that my eyes could be wandering around for a long time. Isn't it great to let yourself be surprised by things you weren't looking for, instead of walking steadily, without looking around, to that famous church you had decided to see?

    Hello Lars,
    This is a very nice old bridge, a wondrful piece of 19th century engineering. I say a convinced yes to this elegant photo with fine contrasts of red and blue. As for the "neverendum" it's up to the people of Scotland, but I am not sure that smaller and smaller nation states is the future for Europe.

    This is a fine view of the lake and the beautiful hills around it. The light and colours are excellent, especially of the nicely shaped clouds and their reflections in the water. It is a photo with a fine atmosphere of late summer.

    Hello Rosemary,
    It'äs nice to see you back here. Yes, news are depressing these days, but at least I enjoy watching some good photos now and then. This is an excellent street-shot, the kind I would have enjoyed taking, with a very good background behind the reading gentleman. The sign showing the opening hours doesn't really mean a thing here, but it's that kind of detail that can make a picture so interesting just by being there.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
    PS I like the reference to that great song, one of the best they ever made.

    This is a very nice photo with pleasant colours and amn attractive blue light. There is a fine atmosphere among the old houses and the people enjoying the beautiful view of the sea and the many small boats, or just strolling along the street.
