    Wonderful reportage from Warsaw!!

    Hi Abmdsudi,
    yes it is quite a problem -what to do with a child when you need to go to work. My daughter is since yesterday in a "holiday club". It is some sort of nursery for summer break for the parents who have to work. I feel so guilty that instead of spending time with my daughter I must send here there, and it is not cheap either...
    But looking at your pic I realize my life may be a tiny bit more comfortable than others...
    Beautiful market scene with the onions n such a huge basket.
    Lovely family portrait of course as well!

    Hi Craig,
    if I am not mistaken my hotel was 2 minutes from the same tram line... I wonder where you were staying :)
    Fantastic capture of the tram. It is nicely framed with the deep shadow around. It is focusing the attention even more on the tram, putting it literally in a spotlight.
    The tram itself being so charming is additionally so colorfully decorated!!
    The cables on top and the labirynth of houses adds some more interest.
    Beautiful work!!!

    Hola Luis,
    this is such a lovely spot! I don't recall seeing it before. I have a stereotype of Oslo as being a very boring architecturally city. You are challenging my view of it. This is so picturesque! There is so much color. You have picked also a great angle to include the monument, some people on the bench... I like also the presence of the flag, it always adds a local touch.
    Beautiful picture,

    Ciao Silvio,
    this is such a beautiful view!
    Everything is just perfect. Most of all the light is magnificent, so warm and making even the grey walls attractive. The sky was fabulous and it makes a huge difference since the clouds appear almost three dimensional and fill the gaps on both sides of the tower. I like the painting on the facade and several Rosetta, it feels old and elegant.
    Beautiful work!!

    Hi Chris,
    fantastic blue hour photo!
    I have spent a night in a hotel nearby and I hoped originally to get closer for the blue hour but someone told me that the whole place is locked after it is dark. I suppose I should have tried...
    The natural beauty of this place is very much enhance by the presence of the reflection in the foreground.
    Spectacular final effect!!!

    Hi Bev,
    what a beautiful composition! You don't need much to create a spectacular photograph.
    I like very much how the sun lit the grass, and the shallow depth of the field contributed to the extraordinary mood. So romantic!!

    Hi Pavle,
    I remember well as a child playing with such wells in Poland. I am not sure if they still exist because I haven't been there a while and I didn't pay attention. But there is something unique about the wells: you see where the water is coming from, not just a tap :)
    Interesting presentation,

    Bonjour Nicolas,
    breath taking effect. Great use of the fog in the forest. You have achieved a fantastic play of the light and shadow.
    I see you have selected a great angle to ensure some reflections in the tree branches.
    Very impressive work!!

    you have perfectly used the ramps here to create very attractive geometrically composition. They create so many visually pleasing diagonals! Presence of the boats illustrates as well their purpose.

    Ciao Carlo,
    very attractive square filled with interesting architecture. Such a beautiful spot and only one person in frame! Nice perspective distortion, it makes the square feel very tight.
    Great weather and colors.
    Excellent presentation from an off-the-beaten-track location.

    widze ze zatytulowales "postcard" tak jak lubie :)
    Wspanialy widok, jak wiesz rowniez musialem go miec w swojej kolekcji.
    Zastanawia mnie bo niebo na horyzoncie jest bezchmurne a jednoczesnie plaza wydaje sie byc w cieniu. Miales zupelnie inne swiatlo niz ja.
    To bardzo wyjatkowe miejsce. Taki maly kraj a jednak obfituje w wyjatkowej urody zakatki.
    Musze tam jeszcze wrocic zeby nadrobic glab kaju jak gory itp.

    czesc Krzysztof,
    bardzo mi sie podobaja rzezby z bialego marmuru. Rodin robi takie bardzo zmyslowe.
    Piekna praca rowniez tutaj. Swietny pomysl z lustrem widzimy rzezbe z przodu i z tylu. Super zblizenie, doskonala jakosc.
    Bylem tylko troche zaskoczony jak wybrales location. Najpierw pomyslalem ze to Lancut potem dla upewnienia sie popatrzylem i widze ze to Ostrow Wielkopolski, potem znowu w notce jest o Lancucie i wreszcie zauwazylem ze ten Ostrow Wielkopolski jest w Podkarpackiem :)

    Hola Sergio,
    Very impressive park photograph.
    I like how the thick tree branches make dark silhouettes here while the lighter elements of trees let through some light. Nice captured play of the light and shadows also well seen on the ground.
    Very well done,

    Ciao Luciano,
    quite an extraordinary composition. Charming view of the lagoon is framed with this unique rock formation. I see you wanted to record very well the rough surface of the rocks, I wonder if keeping this part actually dark would make the scene look better.
    Very unusual shape of the window.
    Great contribution to your reportage from paradise. I would never guess the location based on this picture,

    Hola Angel,
    very impressive view. I guess I would think that it is a view from a plane so it is great that you have also included some shapes in the foreground to anchor it to the ground. Amazing viewpoint!
    Fantastic geometry of the light and dark green patterns down at the bottom.
    I like as well the subtle touch of the clouds.
    Very well done,

    Hi Ike.
    I like the repeated motif of the modern building, aren't they identical or simple very similar? Occasionally in between we can also spot some older buildings. Interesting mix. It does feel a bit as Central Park.
    I like the autumnal colors of trees with such a green grass at the same time.
    Great reportage,

    Hi Lars,
    great presentation from London. You have selected almost only the modern aspects, may be except for the church tower. This makes London feel so modern.
    Great geometry with the Shard adding a particularly nice shape. Lovely sky to complement it.
    Fantastic contribution to your reportage,
