    Hello Ourania,
    It is obvious that you will have to return here in a few months to show us what happened to this house after restorations. It is that kind of old building that could turn out beautifully with the right treatment. But what about these chairs? Hopefully they are carefully fastened to the low walls, otherwise they seem to be balancing precariously, like they would fall into the sea if anyone leaned back just a little bit. But this unusual white diagonal is a real treat to the composition, balanced nicely by the lamppost and the dark holes in the old building's wall. And once again the buildings and quay in the distance play a role for one of your photos, as always in a slightly new way.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Harriet,
    This photo has a remarkable clarity which has given the colours an impressive intensity. The little boat and its "tracks" make an excellent foreground, along with the birds. It is a well timed photo from a very good POV.

    Hello Takero,
    This is a fantastic view of the gigantic city by night. It is truly fascinating to watch the well lit big streets and the boats on the river. The exposure and sharpness are excellent.

    Hello Angel,
    Another welcome glimpse of the pretty houses of Riquewihr. The people enjoying their meals create a pleasant ambience among the lovely buildings with all their fine details. The clarity is excellent and the colours don't suffer from the dull weather.

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    She certainly doesn't look very happy, but I believe that if she could see the excellent photo you had taken she would actually be rather proud of herself. But this is a tricky situation which every street photographer has encountered many times. For you this little conflict was definitely worthwhile. It's a magnificent portrait, very expressive as well as technically perfect.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Frank,
    This is a smart photo and probably the most colorful one of the day, The shadow of the tree creates an interesting composition within the composition.

    Hello Gerrit,
    The blue sky, the banana tree and the nice buildings provide a fine environment for those enjoying their Sunday walk. Obviously it rained recently but I think they will not need their umbrellas any more. It's a well composed photo with beautiful colours.

    Hello Pavle,
    A nice steel bridge placed by you on a fine diagonal. You also framed the view of the bridge nicely with the trees on both sides. The colours are superb and we can see that spring is rapidly approaching.

    Hello Farhat,
    I like this snapshot from the street very much. Somehow you seem to have captured each man's character and personality. At least everyone has his own posture and appearance. I like how the man top the left is half cut off but still very much part of the composition from the way he is eagerly looking at the others. Your note makes me curious of what kind of clandestine job they are doing.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    The cathedral is beautiful and the lighting is stunning. You captured its well lit façade very elegantly and created excellent contrasts with the surrounding darkness. The sharpness is impressive too.

    Hello Mesut,
    This is really the sign of the times. Two elderly men having a conversation, the third man maybe talking to God and the girl talking to someone far away. It's a nice composition from daily life and quite amusing in spite of being such a very common scene.

    Hello Ryszard,
    The thumbnail made me think of the famous square in Poznan, but looking closer I see that these houses are much smaller and much more modest. They still look very pretty with their pastel colours and neat roofs. It's a straightforward but pleasant and well cropped composition with fine light.

    Another beautiful view of the marvellous scenery of Iceland. It seems that Iceland's nature has a talent for almost abstract works of art. This is fantastic play of blue and grey tones and amorphous shapes.

    Hello Carlo,
    These are very beautiful old buildings crammed together at different angles. I like their colours, the mix of well painted walls and faded walls. The angles of the bridge complement the lines of the houses very well. The light is excellent and has refined the colours.

    Hello Bev,
    Seeing the title I thought it would refer to the green tufts of grass, but they would not provide much energy. Some people complain of everything and don't like wind turbines spoiling the view from their houses by the sea, but seeing them like this they make me think of a giant art installation that goes very well with the very impressive Gormley statues. This is an interesting and quite attractive photo, especially when seen along with the WS.
