    Hello Luis,
    A nice photo with all the white details of the ship and the triangle of flags. The exposure is perfect and the sky is very nice. The fluffy clouds and proudly flying flags make the photo quite vivid. But I would hardly think of the route across the small Baltic Sea as "transatlantic". ;-)

    Hello Gy÷rgy,
    You did a lot of pp on this one. I wouldn't have thought of it, and probably nobody else, but it was of course honest to point it out. It was neatly done. The photo is funny and deserves this treatment. You timed it well, with some luck. The man behind the newlyweds is a lot more interesting than the young couple. I suppose he was neither best man nor official wedding photographer.
    Best wishes,
    Gert

    Hello Denis,
    These buildings have fantastic colours. The bright effect is enhanced by the dark surroundings, the low POV and of course the perfect exposure.

    It's a graphically nice photo, but the naked figures are cheating by standing at least 10 cm above the floor.

    Both photos are fantastic and very attractive. They show a good combination of artistic ideas of those who created the carpet and your talent at composing and cropping.

    Hello Bev,
    Conventionally seen the WS is probably more attractive with its warmer colours and wider view of the water, but this is a more interesting composition. The boardwalk and the long line of bikes create fine depth and I could almost imagine being in the Netherlands when seeing them. The white lines of the fences are graphically attractive.

    Hello Chris,
    Maybe this is the same chessboard that I photographed in 2008, but the weather and circumstances were totally different. The warm light and the beautiful church make this a very appealing photo. For a "nothing special" photo this is actually quite special.

    Hello Lars,
    Of course I remember this musician, but it's fun to see that your photo is so different from Craig's. His picture showed more of the painted square but I like this distant view of skyscrapers better than Craig's bridge. It's always interesting to see what you can achieve by moving a few metres. Not just different views but also quite different atmospheres and of course a different light.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Ryszard,
    I would hesitate to go to this cinema in case the foyer would collapse. It's an amusing photo but I get a feeling the architect thought very hard to create something original.

    Another nice view of the mixture of architectural styles of the city beneath the characteristic hill. This time you used the fence for an original foreground. As usual a well exposed and sharp photo.

    Hello Malgo,
    Do you mean that you actually got up early in the morning? ;-)
    Nice morning light and artificial light still burning on the bridge. A few other early birds create an interest in the street, but it's nice to see this place without the usual crowds.

    Hello Piotr,
    It's an unusual scenery, but the strong contrasts of blue, green and white make it quite special. The few trees and the diagonals of the hillsides create a fine rhythm. Did you drive your own car, enabling you to stop at places like this?

    Hello Jorge,
    It's an attractive view, especially with the naked rock over the town with only three churches seen on a diagonal. It seems to me very typical of the Kykladic islands, but I am surprised to see that some of the houses are not as white as expected. On some islands I believe there is a rule that every house should be white and that they have to get a layer of fresh paint every year. The colours of the photo are perfectly clear and bright, by the way.
    Best regards,
    Gert

    Hello Craig,
    Although I'm not very familiar with Iceland I recognize the view in the WS, but I have - naturally - not seen this rock from this high angle before. It's a great view and amazingly sharp.

    Hello Angel,
    My congratulations on your thousand posts. I hope the sun is not setting on your activities on the site. The magnificent colours of the sky are perfectly reflected in the shallow water and the small rocks create a fine pattern which makes the foreground more interesting. The photo is excellently exposed.

    It's a pleasant view of the marshlands and it looks like a paradise for many kinds of birds. There are many fine tones of green and also a nice sky which once again shows the intense air traffic in this part of Europe.

    Hello Dale,
    This is not a very inviting view but the rough mountains are quite impressive. It looks like the naked rock has grown out of its brown cover. The good sharpness and exposure is a great advantage for the photo.

    Hello Pierre,
    This is very different from the plain village churches you have shown so often. It is an impressive work of the neo-gothic style and you did well to find a point of view in the street where you could capture the entire fašade. The light management allows for a clear view of the many architectural details.
    Kind regards,

    A nice and colourful photo. This looks quite typical of the many neat and picturesque streets in Ljubljana. The shadows of the letters on the shop's sign are eye-catching, but almost make me wonder if my eyes are all right.
