    Hi Ana,
    this is a very picturesque view, an excellent artistic photo :)
    it's incredible that there are such doors and windows... and.. walls!
    as a painter, I especially like the soft nice colours, too!

    warm greetings,
    Elena

    Ciao dear Lisa! But how can this be that places get to the UNESCO World Heritage Listing and with the next Government change they can de-list it how ever they want it, what is the use of such listings at all? Okay I am being naïve, don't laugh at me. Oh boy, I feel with you, this would drive me up the walls as well and as it is WORLD HERITAGE, well here we go, it is ours, it belongs to this world. We had the chance to be in the listing too with a mountain chain I look at from my cottage window. They did not want it because it would have limited them with new building activities. All business. Scary. Hugs from Switzerland, Barbara xxx

    Helo Michael,
    I think it's a wonderful photo :) The moment you captured gives us plenty of room for imagination and thought. Excellent shot.
    I also like the note :)

    Hi Andrew,
    a very good Note, and a very expressive photo which is radiant with a special light and expressing a special (sad, though) mood - thanks to the shining silvery "wings" against the dark cloudy sky. Excellent POV.
    kind regards,
    Elena

    Re-bonjour, Christiane!
    oh yes, the dog :) amazingly, its colour matches the colour of the surroundings so well! It seems that the day is hot.. so the dog is too lazy to move?
    excellent colourful photo!

    Bonjour Christiane,
    in your photo, this beautiful place looks like a painted picture - because of the amazing tints of blue and green :)
    very relaxing, picturesque... excellent composition! I also like very much to see people walking in the distance, and the swans: they add a touch of something a little romantic :)
    Amitiés!

    Hello Vincent,
    this is a very beautiful view and an excellent composition!
    This combination of white/bluish snow, sunshine and peaky mountains create a fascinating atmosphere..
    When I was on Mt. Titlis I was very impressed by the snowy cold mountains.. Fortunately, the day was very sunny though quite cold: -20C at the top! (it was February)

    I also absolutely agree with you regarding the 2nd paragraph in the Note to your photo. This is what I do every time I am in Luzern (I specially choose it because it is almost in the centre of the country, which is very convenient): right from my hotel room I can travel to any part of Switzerland and enjoy the "job"! :)

    best wishes,
    Elena

    Hi Kari,
    this is an unusual but quite an impressive photo :) I like it very much. This vehicle looks like a monster ready to devour something or somebody!
    I like the excellent perspective. Quite a cold scene, by the way... the blue colour enlivens it a bit :)

    Hi Lisa,
    I saw this on FB - now on TrekEarth :) I consider it a perfectly composed shot. These "ghosts" of moving people in the foreground add a dynamic effect, and the brightly lit place with those tables and people add a touch of warmth (figuratively speaking, of course) to this scene :)
    I love that "star" on the Opera House!
    kind regards,

    Hi Angel,
    this is a beautiful sunny view! I like the composition and POV, too :)
    but it is a bit strange that there are so few people around! on the other hand, it is good that there are no people... they do not block the beautiful view :))

    Hi Ardi,
    it's very nice to see the bright red and yellow colours (the man carrying road signs) in such a grey picture :) I understand it's partial desaturation, and you managed it very well. I also like the vertical composition.
    I myself like shooting photos from inside airplanes!

    Bonjour Jean,
    first of all, it is a beautiful view!
    I'm always attracted to water - waterfalls, in particular. I like your photo very much because it shows a real flow of water - not a "milky" flow :) The exposure is great! the composition is perfect; and the inclusion of people helps us to see the real size of the waterfall.
    amicalement,
    Elena

    Hi Maria,
    of course, without any doubt, such photos must be viewed in a large size (thank God now we can do it in beta. TE version!)
    It's an impressive view presenting to us the power and expanse of the river - part of Nature. The people standing on the river bank emphasise this effect.
    Excellent :)

    Hi Paul,
    you have very interesting photos of Japan in your gallery, so I really can't choose the best of them :)
    Besides showing a beautiful place, this image is perfectly composed, in my opinion. I love the bright red colour standing out against the nice blue sky, and those cherry-trees match so well the colour of some ladies' kimonos :)
    Kyoto has been one of my "travel dreams".. hopefully, one day I'll go there, too!
    best regards,

    Hi Ana,
    what a photo - looks like an Impressionist painting :) these bright red poppies scattered across the photo add it a very nice, happy mood :)
    The composition is perfect! the lady also reminds me of those old-time ladies whom we can see in Impressionist paintings... for example, by Renoir :)

    Hi Rosemary!
    looks like both the smaller and larger versions are identical in size - perhaps, because the photo is vertical.. all the better, then!
    This is an excellent vertical composition, with a very good balance of light and colours:)
    The tower in the background, light and high, looks so airy and fragile against the soft blue sky - in contrast with the dark buildings on both sides of the photo.
    I really must see Florence one day..
    kind regards,
    Elena
