    Hi Delphine,
    beautiful landscape! I like very much lakes in the mountains they always add so much interest. It is also the case here: this greenish color of the lake is stunning! Very nice vertical frame, so suitable for this occasion. I like the well saturated natural colors.
    Excellent work!

    Hi Angel,
    Indeed I had a glass of sherry on my trip to Andalusia but I think I had it in Sevilla as in Jerez we were focused mainly on the Feria del Caballo :)
    Lovely fountain -nice composition here with attractive houses in the back. Altogether it makes a very pleasant scene, very welcoming to visit.
    Very well done!

    Hi Lars,
    indeed the light was quite challenging, a bit pity that so much of the building is covered with shade but nevertheless you have managed to convince me with this photo that this is a beautiful structure with nice architecture.
    Very well done!

    Ciao Lisa,
    perfect waterfall photo! I agree with you it is so difficult to expose it properly. I have tried recently with a waterfall nearby and I failed all my photos are rubbish (although I used one as my main photo on FB but it was more about people).
    So I am so jealous about this one here!
    Excellent exposition!
    I like this white turning slightly blue: it reminds me about what I read in newspaper that tonight is going to be so called "blue moon" special full moon which happens once in 2.7 years.
    This picture could well go to illustrate the blue moon night.
    Wonderful work!!

Swietny punkt widzenia na ratusz i rynek z gory, Widac typowa kwadratowa zabudowe i placyk pelen zieleni. Wspaniale kolory, super swiatlo. Bardzo atrakcyjna prezentacja!

    Hi John,
    very attractive corner. I like how the beautiful church rises from behind the white buildings in the foreground. You found a great corner here everything seems to be in consistent style and well taken care off. The sky complements your composition from the top.
    Excellent work,

    Bonjour Cricri,
    I would never guess that these fantastic rock formations are in France. I thought more about Cappadocia or American Southwest.
    Amazing orange color and incredible shapes -plus it is all combined with the intense blue and green colors.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Chris,
    spectacular view! I have seen pics from this POV before -this must be the best spot with the characteristic tower and the view over the fjord. You had a great luck to have this huge ship passing it adds a nice touch here too. You placed it very well in the right spot! Very impressive view with those mountains on the other side.
    Excellent work!!

    Hola Luis,
    it looks like a great place to retire indeed!
    I like very much your well thought through composition with the gate framing the tower perfectly. It also covers the uniformly blue sky which would be too boring otherwise. Great idea and a perfect realization.
    Have a great weekend,

    Czesc Malgorzata,
    wspaniala fototgrafia! Niebo nie mogla sie udac lepsze! Kolory super! Pomimo ze zdjecie takie podobne do zdjecia Craiga to jednak tak zupelnie inne. Nie chce mi sie wierzyc ze to z autobusu. Jest super wyrazne! Swietnie sie prezentuja rowniez te gory w oddali. Warto bylo jechac prawda!

    Ja natomiast wlasnie wczoraj wrociclem do domu po operacji :)

    Jesli chodzi natomiast o Norwegie to ostatnio zona opowiadala mi o niemilej sytuacji jaka miala w pracy. Jej kolezanka zaczela nagle przy lunchu opowiadac o Polakach jacy sa beznadziejni jak przyjezdzaja do Norwegii zeby wykorzystywac system, jak nocuja po kilkoro w pokoju i pracuja za najgorsze pieniadze a przede wsyztskim ze przyjezdzaja wykorzystywac system i dlatego powinno sie ich wyrzucic itd. Biorac pod uwage ze ona mieszka w UK i sie nie krepuje tak mowic przy innych -moge sobie tylko wyobrazic co mowia ci mniej swiatli Norwegowie o nas...

    Hi Abmdsudi,
    again it is so easy nowadays to make this type of picture with the digital camera when you immediately see effect and can adjust accordingly. Here you demonstrate your real skills: to be able to achieve such amazing effect with analog camera one need to master the photographic skills really well.
    I like how you have used the characteristic silhouette of the arched wall -it makes the picture so interesting. Palm trees silhouettes add to is as well.
    The sky is spectacular of course!
    I like the round shape of the sun with a little aurora around it. It works really impressive!
    Excellent work!

    Hi Takero,
    fantastic series of the ladies with this traditional hats. They seem indeed quite difficult to wear.
    They are very photogenic and so original! I like also the green color of clothes, it also nicely fades out in the pleasantly blurred background. Beautiful action photo!
    Excellent reportage!

    Hi Danos,
    spectacular sunset composition. The sky seems to be on fire and there is a nice patter of clouds which adds to a nice final effect. There is a nice line of the mountain range on the horizon which adds a nice silhouette too in addition to people silhouettes in the water.
    Excellent work!

    Hi John,
    indeed I was a bit surprised to see the messy graffiti in your gallery ;) Just kidding, it is a wonderful picture, I like the light which emphasized the rough surface of the wall. Long shades play well with the painted shapes. Colors are amazing!
    Very well seen and captured,

    Hi Burak,
    although it is an European capital I did not see many photos from Oslo.
    I am glad you share this one here. The city hall is probably not spectacular but clean and elegant and quite interesting. Most of all you have captured it at the best possible timing -blue hour which introduced a fantastic atmosphere. We can also see some people walking around, bikes, water puddles -some life.
    Wonderful presentation!

    Czesc Krzysztof,
    a wiec kolejny Twoj reportaz bedzie z Bamberga! Mialem kiedys przyjemnosc odwiedzic to miasto, studiowalem przez rok dosyc niedaleko stamtad. To bylo jednak jeszcze w czasach kiedy w ogole nie mialem aparatu. Teraz oczywiscie bardzo tego zaluje. Pamietam ze Bamberg zrobil na mnie ogromne wrazenie, no i teraz Twoje fotografie mi to miejsce przypomna. Pieknie tpokazales te swiatynie. Boczne swiatlo dawniej uwazalem za mniej doskonale a teraz podoba mi sie wlasnie najbardziej bo to wlasnie dzieki cieniom wszystko wydaje sie bardziej naturalne i zarazem trojwymiarowe. Bardzo ladnie to zaprezentowales w szerszym kontekscie i w otoczeniu zieleni.
    Pogoda rowniez Ci dopisala.
    Po prostu piekna fotografia!

    is it the same which you showed in yellow recently?
    I can't believe people like such bright colors. If it is not the same car may be it is the same owner?
    Lovely car though and a nice capture,
