    I really like the composition, and there's lots going on the way you've managed to catch both the gigantic colourful eye popping fig and the background, credit to your exposure control despite harshness of the light. Excellent detail throughout, rich vivid colour and contrast to the skyscape are simply gorgeous to look! Extremely an appealing imposing subject so smartly taken, Congrats and tfs,
    Warm wishes

    Hello Costantino,
    I happened to miss this fine photo. This is a popular and well known view, but the colours and postures of the soldiers in front of the grey wall are superbly captured. I can read what is written on the wall, but unfortunately I don't understand it, but the letters have a great graphic beauty and contribute much to the composition.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Gerrit,
    You have captured the game very well. This photo has a great sense of movement. Except for the ball lying there, waiting top be kicked, these boys might just as well have been performing some kind of dance. Especially the nearest boy is superbly captured.

    Hello Brenda,
    In the south of England we have had a mild winter and no snow so quite a contrast with your weather. I remember visiting Central Park in the winter and was amazed at how magical it was. The bridge makes a strong subject and the person with the red coat really makes this picture for me. Lovely light and nice white snow. Very well taken and presented.
    Kind Regards, Ann

    Hello Mesut,
    Pigeons are always irresistible to small children who love to chase them around, disturbing their meals. You took a charming photo of this little boy who looks like he is contemplating whether to make another rush. It's a very nice capture from daily life.

    Hello Maciej,
    This is a beautiful and impressive church, but it is surprising to find a church as big as this way out in the countryside. Where is the congregation? I guess conditions were very different 900 years ago. I like the POV where the different tones of green create a fine foreground.

    Hi Jason. Composed with great respect towards this beautiful and impressive building. You have selected the optimum POV so as to feature the symmetry, grandeur and substance of the place. Mastery of your camera has produced excellent clarity, exposure and colours. My compliments. Klaudio.

    Hello Chris,
    A fine church seen from a good angle entirely dedicated to the black and white domes. Clearly this building must have been restored in recent times. It looks too good to be untouched since it was rebuilt in the 1540's. I wonder if any government of independent Moldova has had enough money or if it was actually done in the Soviet days.
    Best regards,

    Hi Andrew. A sombre monument to unfortunate results when two peoples meet on an uneven basis. It seems to reach to the sky and because of your POV and strong composition, one is not sure how tall this totem is but it does look monumental. Great effort. Regards. Klaudio.

    Hello Serghei,
    This is a not so often seen view from Japan, making me think more of the Himalayas. The dense forest, all covered in snow, creates a superb foreground to the view of the rugged mountains.The mainly clear blue sky is made more interesting by the small dark clouds.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Sasha,
    It is not necessary to travel around the world to take good photos (even though I have done that). Interesting photos can be found in your own neighborhood if you have eyes to see the opportunities. This is a fine wall with nice lines and colours and you made it more interesting and surprising with the deliberate tilt. It is a photo that nobody could miss.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hi Ryszard. I saw the series on Australian TV, on our multicultural TV station. It was fun watching Svelk outsmarting his officers in the Austro-Hungarian army. He was a clever and resourceful man. I am surprised to see him in Polkowice enjoying his beer in the sunshine. Pozdrawiam. Klaudio.
