    Hi Costantino,
    very relaxing view. I like the presence of the person who seems to have all the beach for himself. Although rocky, the beach seems so clean and unspoiled.
    Nice holiday shot,

    Hi Ike,
    interesting modern sculpture. You show it in the context of the location. I think it would be interesting to see it closer too to be able to see the details. Amazing weather, I am so jealous about it.
    I am praying for a peace in your country,

    Ciao Lisa,
    this is so beautiful. I love deserts. I had a pleasure to live in California for a couple of years and had a bit taste of it. I loved it. This seems like a place which I would like to visit frequently. I did not know you have such landscapes so close to Sydney, I thought they are more in the center or in the west.
    Fantastic light emphasized the extraordinary pattern.
    A real master piece of nature and of you.
    Excellent work!!!

    Hi John,
    the streets seem so full of history :)
    Of course I know this story but I would not be able to associate it with the pub. Nice street scene and the people walking the street not only don't disturb but even add a nice touch, some life to the scene.
    very well spotted. I have to take more photos with people I guess. What I like in this photo is feeling of luminosity, it seems so bright and colorful although there is no direct sunlight or so it seems.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Angel,
    I had a pleasure to visit this lovely town and although so pretty I have to say it is very challenging to present it. The streets are narrow and very strong light with strong contrasts. You have selected a nice spot here, the square is so full of color and charming townhouses. Plus there are palm trees and elegant lamps for decoration, Very well done,

    Hi Rosemary,
    in black and white one could argue it is a photo of a desert ;) Similar geometry :) What mainly differs is the fresh green color.
    Beautiful scene well spotted. I like the trails of the tractor which add more interest and of course the farm buildings on the horizon with the pointy trees.
    Excellent work!

    Hi Noel,
    very well spotted! The light quite challenging although very atmospheric, full of mood. But the composition is fantastic without a doubt!
    And great idea for a title as well, it is so accurate and funny.

    Hi Craig,
    this is so beautiful, I have seen your or Tosca's photos from this hike on FB already. It is truly jaw-dropping and with your usual high quality it works really impressive. I like the greenish color of the water and a combination of clarity with reflection -so unusual, so beautiful effect. Great sky as well on top of it. Excellent light. I can't believe it is so close to you and you first went to Iceland before going here! I am so jealous you have such beautiful spots around.
    Beautiful work!

    Hi asa,
    great time of the day. it seems they illuminate the town quite early and you have well used this opportunity here. Nice perspective showing two gates on two different levels it works quite surprising when one think about it.
    I had a pleasure to visit this wonderful town long time ago. It seems to be one of the best preserved medieval towns in Europe. And the Christmas shop is open there all year round :)
    Excellent work,

    Hi John,
    very elegant interior and a beautiful presentation of it. I really have to try photographing interiors more often, this photo encourages to do so. Lovely atmosphere, plenty of colorful people enjoying the place. Nice asymmetrical composition.

    Hi Bev,
    you have a really great eye to spot something like this. Excellent composition, very well used design of the bridge here.
    As mentioned elsewhere I did not plan many trips this year but one of them was a weekend near Manchester. There was a show for my daughter over there and we also went to one of the best ZOOs in the world (Chester), plus Liverpool as you have already seen. I tell you the story because as well I had a chance for a quick walk along Salford Quays. The weather was quite challenging but I definitely have to show something from that walk. I remember of course well this bridge, it is quite extraordinary. I like the perfect symmetry here. I would love to come back there at the blue hour as well, may be someday.
    Thanks for showing this original perspective,

    Hi Daniel,
    this is a spectacular view! I like very much the pointy trees in the foreground adding asymmetric touch. Very pleasant natural colors. Incredible sharpness and clarity.
    It is nice to hear that there are also some family friendly trails there. I started recently to worry that having 2 year old daughter I won't be able to hike for a very long time... Although I did hike recently a mountain in the UK but obviously they are more like hills.
    Excellent work,

    Bonjour Claude,
    very original presentation of this famous square. You were lucky to be there and witness the moment and you have perfectly used the opportunity. I bet you have much better photo of these girls than the person who intended to take it. Curious if they will ever see their own photo?
    Excellent moment, great effect of repeated element of a jumping girl :)

    No nic Twoje zdjecie zacheca zeby tam koniecznie jeszcze wrocic.

    Ciao Luciano,
    great action photo. Very well captured and so sharp.
    This reminded me about my colleague from work, he is from Algeria and he told me in the area where he lives jumping like this is quite popular. He told me there were two deaths in his family of young boys who have hit the rocks...

    Hi Paul,
    this seems like a wonderful trip where there was an abundance of architecture and nature and famous places to visit but also some places so well hidden from intruders like this one here. Great location for a temple indeed. Nice overall atmosphere with a foggy feeling.
    Very well spotted,

    Bonjour Denis,
    beautiful composition! I like the usual in your photos vivid and natural colors. The view of the bay is so pretty and so well framed with the attractive vegetation, it seems like a blooming agave: it adds a really nice touch here. But also the tree with its rough branches fills well the sky above the water.
    Excellent work!!
