    Witaj Maciej,

    I have with a lot of attention looked to your second picture.
    The second picture is the most beautiful, this is personal !
    Of course is your first picture also very nice with the three arches and a wonderful building.
    An excellent composition and nice presentation too.
    Very well done, TFS.

    Best regards,
    John.

    Hello Ike

    The rust red patches contrast well against the gray-blue hues to give a pleasing warm cold color contrast. Effective tight framing and good sharpness. The compass like structure adds interest. Tfs.

    Hi Alex

    The fog and mist have imparted a moody and atmospheric look to this image and the smoke from the old steam train is hardly noticeable. A soft diffused light with fantastic sharpness. Well framed and composed. Tfs.

    Hello Karolina,

    Indeed, it seem an adult with the book under the arm.
    Nice picture with the bookshop as real eye catcher.
    An excellent composition and nice presentation too.

    Hello Arunava,

    Good textural details in the domed roof and wonderful warm cold color contrasts between the yellow and blue. So sad what has happened to Nepal. I was lucky enough to visit twice in 2000 and again in 2002. Tfs.

    Hello Chris,
    The colourful umbrellas make an interesting and contrasting frame for the natural scene that lies beyond. The image is well exposed and has very good colours and clarity. I like how the overhanging tree looks as if it would fit neatly into the gap between the two hills.

    Hello Angel,

    Smart choice of a vertical format with the 2 building sides at right and left nicely framing the bg scene. A good exposure on the bright highlights with excellent colour and saturation. I like the high pov. Tfs.

    Hello Will,
    It is true that Cherbourg suffers from a poor reputation, but it has to be said that it it suffered much during the war and the rebuilding particularly in the centre was not very imaginative. It is evident though from your picture that that is not the case with other areas of the town. I like very much the long perspective and the tiered effect offered by your composition. The light is very appealing and the colours and clarity excellent. Beautiful sky and reflections.

    Hello Alexandre,

    The aperture priority setting and long 20 second exposure has given nice starburst patterns to the light and motion blur of the fog. Good nocturnal shot with excellent sharpness.

    Hello Malgo,

    It finally dawned on me that the name of this town is A. Have you ever been to the town in Wales with the longest name in the world, as Bangkok is usually abbreviated to City of Angels. This would complete a trio. The upper Californian shot looks tropical in comparison. Tfs.

    Hello Jean-Claude,
    A very pleasant view along the river, which clearly demonstrates the commanding position occupied by the castle. The composition is agreeably illuminated and has pleasing natural colours and very good sharpness. Depth of perspective is very good indeed.

    Hello Craig,
    I wonder who the oddball is, who painted his house pink and not blue? Fine perspective over these tightly packed houses. Lots to see and all in excellent detail.

    Hello Roland,
    A pleasing capture from Bardolino, which is also noted for its pleasant light red and rosť wines. I like the point of view using the jetty as a lead line. Also, how the line of masts stands out against the clear blue sky. The image is well exposed and has very good colours and sharpness.

    Ciao Lisa

    Very much depends on the heat and crowds and condition of the walking tracks as to how far I am prepared to walk. The long time exposure has given a smooth silky motioned blurred texture to the water. Tfs.

    Hello Noel,
    A very popular place by the looks of it; good to see there are still people with money about keeping the economy going, Ireland seems to be doing better than most at the moment, long may it last. Excellent point of view looking across the lake with its lovely reflections. Very good technical realisation.

    Looks similar to the Trevi fountain. Impressive sculpture with superb sharpness and a nice warm cold color contrast between the yellow and red hues and the blue sky. Punchy light contrasts and splendid density levels. Tfs.

    Hello Ike,

    I spent a couple of days in Lisbon but missed this building. Good sharpness and the people add scale and animate the scene. Nice repetition of the fluted, inverted, jelly-like turrets. Tfs.
