    Hi Ines,
    Beautiful capture! The lighting is wonderful with such lovely warm shades of gold and orange. I like the contrast of the silhouetted reeds and the beautiful ripples. Very nice composition too, showing more water and less sky, and the foreground grasses adding nice detail and depth.
    Thank you for sharing!

    Hi Justin,
    Great shot of the Japanese gardens...its a lovely place to visit especially when the garden festival is on.
    I really like the angle from which you took this photo. It allows us to see the lovely ripples in the water and those beautiful reflections of the bridge. The composition is very nice too, with the trees and rocks naturally framing the photo. :)
    Thanks for sharing!

    Hi Sumit,
    Welcome to Trekearth!
    Lovely photo! Nice choice of subject too. Mountains are always great to photograph as they are all unique and have different shapes and sizes, always making for an interesting photo. The composition is well done and the photo overall is dramatic with the clouds and the lovely rich green tones. Did you use a filter or do any post-processing to the clouds?
    Thankyou for sharing,
    Kind regards,

    Hi Imram,
    What a lovely looking starfish. I like how it is standing up and posing for you :) The starfish contrasts nicely with the blue sky and water.
    Just some suggestions: You have used the rule of thirds well with the sky and sand, however to make the composition even better I would suggest positioning the starfish off-centre to make the composition more appealing to the eyes. Also I'd rotate the photo ever so slightly counter-clockwise to remove the horizon tilt. Thanks for sharing,
    Kind regards,
    Claudia

    Hi Saleem,
    Great photo! You have captured the moment and the atmosphere very well in your photo. I agree with everyone that the dust really contributes something special to the composition. I also like the point of view, with the farmer positioned to the right and the cattle to the left. It gives the photo good depth of field. Well captured! It is almost like a painting!
    Kind regards,

    Olá Clecio,
    Very nice photo! I really like the angle at which you took the photo! It gives good depth. The colours and details are lovely too. I would probably just crop out the sky to give the photo a better composition, using thirds (1 third sky, 2 thirds sand). I've done a workshop to show you what I mean. I hope you don't mind.
    Well captured!

    Ciao!
    Beautiful photo! I love all that gorgeous white snow, and how the tree trunk naturally frames your photo. Our winters in Australia are nothing like in your picture. We never see snow in the part of Australia where I live unfortunately :(
    Nice capture!

    Hi Raymond.
    Lovely photo of the Danube river and Budapest. The point of view and composition are good, giving good depth, and the atmosphere created by the fog is very peaceful, calming and beautiful. Nice work!

    Hi Giuseppe,
    A very lovely capture of St Petersburg. I love the angle at which you took the photo, because it gives good depth and makes for a superb composition. The details are sharp and the warm golden tones and lighting are really beautiful, but I would have to say that what I love the most are those gorgeous reflections in the water. Well exposed and captured!

    Hi Essie,
    Wow! This is a really good photo! You've captured the ruins and fallen roof well. I especially like the details and different textures in your photo and also the DOF. The composition is also good, with the ruins positioned to the right of the photo and the window facing left.
    Not sure that I can spot the handprints though :(
    Well captured!

    Hola Ray,
    This is an impressive photo! I really like it. You've done really well with the colour popping. I just wanna hop into that cute little cuban car and go for a drive around Cuba. The perspective and depth of the photo are also really good, giving us a good view of a typical cuban street, but the lack of colour in the background then forces our eyes to the subject of the photo, so it is very cleverly done.
    Good job!

    Hi Mesut,
    Welcome to TrekEarth!
    This is a good first post. I like the different textures of the building and the pavement. The contrast in colours is also excellent, with the brown contrasting very well with the fluoresent colour of the man's vest and also with the rubbish bin.
    I also like how after the rain, the pavement is wet, bringing out those wonderful reflections. Well captured and excellent composition with the man and rubbish bin positioned to the right of the frame.
    Regards,
    Claudia

    Hi Ailig,
    Great photo! It looks like a really nice gallery to visit. Even the balance of colours with the red, orange, white and brown as well as setup of the room is very artistic. Good details and composition, and the inclusion of the person reading is a bonus too, because it shows the peaceful atmosphere of the gallery.
    Well captured!

    Hi Quel,
    Beautiful photo! The lighting is wonderful and the colours are superb, especially the orange and the fresh greens. I also love the composition. The trees are very nicely positioned within the frame and the depth of field is great. The details are also lovely and crisp in clarity, and you have framed the photo well.

    Hi Brad,
    Nice work! Maybe the toad waited there for you to take pics of him hehe :)
    I like this photo. The tall, narrower format suits really well, especially with the way the leaves are positioned. I like that you included the leaves because they add depth to the photo and add that extra touch, with the bright colours complementing the toad and contrasting well with the grey.
    Well captured!

    Hi Marie,
    Great photo! It shows how people live in these countries. They are very strong and hardworking.
    I love the colours and details especially and also how the woman is positioned to the left, leaving more space in front of her, therefore enhancing the composition of the photo. Well captured and well presented!
    Thankyou for sharing!

    Hi Stephen,
    Good photo of the castle! I like the composition and POV as well as the tones. I also like how the photo is monochrome. It brings out the details and gives the photo that aged look, just as the castle is aged. Did you get to go inside of the castle? :)

    Hi Stephen,
    Very nice photo! The landscape is really beautiful. I love the colours, especially the fresh green as well as the lighting. The rocks in the foreground frame the photo really well and add to the depth of the photo. The details are wonderful and the cliffs of the most Westerly point are magnificent, dwarfing the lighthouse. This reminds me of the most Easterly point here in Australia, Byron Bay, with its lighthouse :)

    Hi Peter,
    This is a really good photo. The point of view is superb with the silver spheres in the foreground and the Palais-Royal in the background. The clarity as well as the perspective are wonderful, forcing the eyes to focus on the Palais. What I also really like are the reflections in the spheres. They add that extra touch. Well captured and presented!
