    Widze,ze odwiedzilas po drodze Bialorus. Jeden z krajow bardzo wysoko na mojej "wishlist" (ktora, stety/niestety rozrasta sie w tempie geometrycznym).
    Super kompozycja z prawie lustrzanym odbiciem w wodzie oraz bardzo dobrze wypatrzona ramka z drzew u gory i cienia na dole.
    Pozdrawiam serdecznie

    Hi Gert
    This is what I call "Gertesque". In your last critique to my image you referred to it as "nothing special", however, following your train of thought, I would rather call it "nothing special BUT...". What you have here is a well-observed interesting situation, cultural connotations and a strong sense of place. I also like the very graphic sense of perspective (also in the other WS photo).
    Well-used unexpected photo opportunity - in this case your taking the wrong turn at the station. :-)

    Stunning image with beautifully blurred water contrasting with the rocks. Thoughtfully composed with well-selected foreground interest. Great use of graduated filters.

    Hi John
    South Lanarkshire has been featured on TE homepage today - all three images yours.
    You captured my favourite kind of weather in this one. The light shining through the mist is stunning, the atmosphere perfect. The image makes me want to be there.
    Great use of diagonal leading lines and I like your choice of the main focal point - the runner provides an eye-catching splash of contrasting colour, like a ladybird on a green leaf...

    Hi Gert
    How beautiful the morning light is in Algeria! It saturates the colours and makes them truly stand out. The shadows make the photos look truly 3D.
    The people standing by the truck look well wrapped up and a good illustration of the conditions you are talking about in your note.
    34 years ago... I bet the landscape has not changed a bit... Probably neither have the means of transport.

    Hi Craig
    Yes, you're right, I love your note. :-)
    You captured the menacing nature of this building in your photo. By placing it in a wider context you made it stand out and kind of look a bit awkward, it immediately draws attention. almost sends shivers down my spine... (but then... I have read your note...).
    I'll miss TE and will be back as soon as I start working daytime/weekdays rather than 24/7.

    Good documentary photos can't always be sharp. What counts is you captured the moment and the mood.
    Also, I really like the low key feel and the composition with the smoking man framed by others and inclusion of the wall with whatever is written on it.
    Iyi hafta! :-)

    Hi Gert
    Before I disappear from TE... This image was featured on the home page today.
    Strong sense of place with the iconic Armenian church, the person of the gardener adds to the atmosphere of summer.
    Both the main upload and the WS photos brings back memories of my previous stay in Armenia in 2010.

    Hi Mike
    You certainly captured the moment of special tenderness. Very good title and note too. Great street candid, they seem as oblivious to your presence and your camera as they must be, at that age characterized with devil-may-care attitude, still oblivious to all the dangers, annoyances and responsibilities of adult life.
    Have a nice weekend

    Ps. Thank you for your note to my Nagorno Karabakh post. It reflects my sentiments and the way of seeing the world too.

    Fajne polaczenie wzorow i kolorow. Krzywizny nadaja surrealistycznego tonu, podobnie jak w zdjeciu z odbiciami, mimo ze tym razem to zupelnie inny typ fotografii.

    Great timing, you really recorded the moment described in the note. I was glad to read that the boy was fine in a moment or two.
