    Hi Miro

    On one of our first Bell-ringing trips to Australia we wanted to cram in as many sight seeing trips as we could and the pinnacles was one that really impressed us.We had rented a mini bus for the team and on our return to Perth the hire company couldn`t believe we had traveled five hundred miles from Perth to the Pinnacles and back. However they believed us when they saw about six inches of sand in the bus !!
    Best Wishes Gladys.

    Hi Chris,
    beautiful work. I like very much the light with long shades adding a three dimensional feeling here.
    The trees make such extraordinary shapes as if the nature was trying to write us a message.
    Background is wonderful too, well divided into three equal horizontal layers.
    Beautiful scenery! It is a pleasure to look at.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Craig,
    it looks like you are keeping the best photos to the end.
    I like his one very much. You managed to squeeze so many of them here. All in a great light and thus attractive colors and with details of design well seen.
    Very well spotted!
    Excellent work!

    Hi Ana,
    this is such a beautiful composition here!
    I like very much the sky, the clouds made up a wonderful pattern which seem to go well with the shadow of the walls. Fantastic presentation of this attractive castle. I like very much the well saturated colors. You have perfectly used the walls. Amazing light too with the shadow making a great contribution.
    Excellent work!

    Hi Burak,
    I like the title here, very suitable and humorous.
    Nice compo with the movie poster, which seems quite antique indeed and the screen further in the distance.
    Very fruitful visit to the jail :)

    Hi Robe,
    At first seeing this photo I was surprised that it is not Philadelphia :) I did not even know that the HOPE sign was created too... This is your second comment which refers to current/future American presidents, I guess it is subtly showing your political preferences.

    Great presentation of the sign with people (especially girl in mini skirt) adding some warm touch and feeling of scale.
    Very well done!

    Hi Lars,
    great capture. The guys are really like a "repeated motif". I thought they are gay but they are too similar so they may be brothers indeed. Note also that some of their tattoos are identical -may be they belong to a mafia? Now seeing the iPhone in a pink color I think again that they are a gay couple.
    Fantastic beach scene!

    Ciao Silvio,
    this is the best sunset photo I have seen in some time now. I like very much very realistic colors. The clouds are having a nice grey silver tone. They have pleasant fluffy shape and contrast well with the hot area of the sky warmed by the sun. The landscape looks amazing in such light.
    Spectacular effect!

    Bonjour Cricri,
    this is quite a funny composition. First of all the houses look extraordinary but also the way you composed it it looks as if the boat was somehow misplaces here on a grassy land. It also has a lovely blue color.
    Very well done!!

    Bonjour Nicolas,
    lovely winter composition. We didn't have much winter this year, and I don't miss it but I think there is a rule in England: no winter -no summer... So in the end I would prefer some winter. And my little daughter probably never seen such icicles like in this photo :(
    I guess I have to visit Switzerland to show my daughter how a winter may look like :)
    Very well seen and captured!

    Hi Bev,
    very impressive effect indeed! The seascape relatively simple yet the sky shows a real spectacle! Amazing play of the light and shadow. In particular of course the sun rays clearly passing between the clouds!
    It could be a good illustration to a book on how God created the world.
    Excellent work!

    Bonjour Cricri,
    beautiful natural scenery! I like very much the reflection. It makes a lovely symmetrical effect mirroring the row of trees. The hills behind add more character to the landscape.
    Very skillful framing both with the tree branches above and the well thought through foreground.
    Very attractive, excellent work!

    Hi John,
    spectacular composition! The reflection is amazing with fragments of it being 100% and some also having ice. Geometry very successful with trees providing verticals and the channel diagonals.
    What is unique about this photo is that it does have a strong winter touch and yet it is so colorful as if it was a summer photo!
    Fantastic use of the sun, slightly hidden behind the tree.
    Excellent work!

    Bonjour Serge,
    I like very much London and the Tower Bridge is one of my favourite subjects there, it is so unique! First time I see its view from this angle but what makes it very original is the boat in front of it. It is somehow disturbing the scale here: it is hart to judge if it is as tall as the bridge or rather much smaller.
    Excellent capture!

    Hi Gert,
    I cannot really judge you: sometimes going the extra mile may take you to a whole new viewpoint which will allow you to better appreciate the place you visit. On another hand, indeed one cannot go everywhere, one has to sense when to stop...

    The architecture here seems quite extraordinary, I don't think I have seen photos from this place before.
    Pilgrim adds another nice touch.

    Excellent work, I admire the quality of your scan too,

    Hi Ike,
    very attractive presentation of the old Greek monument.
    You photographed it from a low perspective which makes it appear as so high! May be it is high anyway but I believe it appears higher that it is :)
    Great light, interesting yellowish color of the marble.
    Very well seen and captured!

    very impressive view! The fortress must have been huge! I like how the little bay is sandwiched between the fortress and the beach further ahead. The clarity is amazing allowing us to see so far away!

    Bonjour Jean,
    very challenging light but a very impressive effect! The shaded area have such pleasant well saturated colors. In particular reflection is so vivid and feels so real! The sun lit fragment which appears behind is an anchor with reality.
    Fantastic composition with well thought through foreground and nice diagonals in the distance. In between we see lovely tree silhouettes.
    Excellent work!!
