    Hello Daniel,
    Usually I don't care much for photos of cars, but this composition and tight cropping makes it more than just a photo of a car. The bright colour and the close look at small details make it interesting.

    Hello Claude,
    I liked the movie and its pastel colours (even though Les parapluies de Cherbourg was better), and these girls seem to capture the atmosphere quite well. Your well timed photo is quite an original contribution to TE.

    Hello Aldona,
    It's a very good and graphically eye-catching photo. I like the bright red, blue and green details and the surprised look of the children. The brick wall looks like a printed wallpaper. Quite original.

    Hello György,
    I wouldn't go so far as to say that the title is better than the photo, but it is a very funny title. The photo is very eye-catching, partly because of the bright colours, especially the yellow bag, but also the unusual environment and most of all the great interest these people show in something on the ground. Something interesting is going on, which makes the photo captivating. We don't know exactly what they are doing but we can imagine a story.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
    By the way, did you see if they ever found the contact lens?

    Hello Rob,
    The main reason I liked the clowns in Rotterdam was not really the clowns as such, but the photo opportunities they offered along with the spectators. Here the moon sculpture gets a company that Rondinone probably not quite expected. But you grabbed the chance of combining it with interesting and colourful reflections, including a photographer. The environment improved the sculpture a lot.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Malgo,
    A very interesting collection of photos from 36 years. What is obvious is that the quality of your photos has improved a lot and that your son no longer travels with his dear mum. The weather seems to have been the same for 36 years, but a tree that had grown below the tower in 2004 has already been cut down. I imagine there must have been some careful restorations in all these years, but luckily they didn't change the appearance of these fine old buildings.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Danos,
    The view towards the sea is beautiful and the composition with the old vault in the foreground is well considered. The seagull coming so close was probably a surprise for you but it is included now as a great eye-catcher.

    Hello Paul,
    Enlarging this photo very much I notice what you describe as "not really sharp", but I have no problem watching it at the normal size, so your hands were obviously stable enough. It's a fine photo with interesting sights on several levels. This really looks like a nice place and seeing the behavior of people it is obviously also a safe city. I am not surprised that the prices were steep at that café, considering its location, but I am shocked to learn about the weak cocktails. ;-)
    Kind regards,

    Hello Ourania,
    This is a very beautiful, simple photo. I would even call it poetic. The citrus fruits have a fantastic dark orange glow from the last rays of the sun, the half moon and the bird add fine details and are well placed on the clear and almost purple sky. It's a well composed photo, combining skill and luck (considering the bird entering the view at the right moment).
    Your description of 12-14 degrees as "very cold" made me smile.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Ike,
    I think the grey sky does a lot to make the mainly green and grey tones look so bright and clear. Lock systems like this are always fascinating and I remember my excitement when as a child I was brought on a tour by boat along a canal with several locks. This photo shows the importance of reading the notes. Otherwise I would not have understood the meaning of the amusing sculpture to the right.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Jean Claude,
    Generally I hate winter, but seeing views like this is pure joy. It doesn't look like much snow has fallen, since the road is dry, but the thick frost on the trees and hedges looks fantastic. The hedges also create a superb depth. You managed a very attractive composition.

    Hello Benny,
    The work she is doing is quite beautiful and her posture and clothes attract my attention. The light is also very agreeable. Being left-handed is normal to her, but she looks rather awkward sitting like this with her work beside her on the floor. I am inclined to think that Rob's WS makes her look more comfortable - or maybe just makes my eyes more comfortable.

    It would be a noisy experience to take a photo from so close to a plane taking off, even when as small as this. But you timed the photo exceptionally well and also cropped it nicely. Light and sharpness are perfect.

    Hello Serge,
    I like this wooden sculpture, although for someone unaware of being in an outdoor art gallery it could be easy to overlook it and regard it as something left by the lumberjacks. The environment for this kind of art is perfect, especially with so much snow around.

    Hello György,
    Slightly more conventional than yesterday's photo but still a very good picture. It doesn't matter that we can't see the gliders this time. It's enough to see the interest shown by the nicely placed elderly man. The clouds are amazingly attractive and the lovely scenery is actually better enjoyed in colours.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
