    Hi Costantino
    Nice chilling out watching the sea crashing over the beach scape, clean and fresh with lovely colour combo just to hold the focus to make it a joyful summer shot. Well done, Congrats.

    Hi Rob
    Interesting indoor shot. If someone said to me "Who took this image" I would know straight away but - it is very cleverly done with the sculpture sharp in focus and slight of focus bg & has your processing hallmark all over it. Well done shot, Congrats

    Hi Ruben
    It's everybody fav subject - sunrise and sunset but here the drawback is too obvious with shooting the high intensity of sun ray, the reflection is almost burnt out and glaring that you get. It distracts attention invading the more interesting areas of the image. I don't mean to be unkind, it is just my sincere opinions. Hope this is of help to you. Congrats

    Hej Gert,
    I'm a bit surprised about the bad weather there. In Western Finland Friday was fine and Saturday just great. Here the view probably would have been pretty similar anyway, because people simply flee away from bigger cities in Midsummer (and drink somewhere else).

    Hello Roland,
    I think the young persons had their mobile phones temporarily in their pockets. But I agree we usually see it the other way around. Even elderly people sometimes become addicted to the phones. He is placed very well in the shade where we only see his silhouette with his hands in a very revealing position. A well spotted moment and appropriately converted to B&W.

    Hi Lisa,
    Effect of the light-painting is quite stunning. On the fingrprint it gave translucent impression. I should thy that some day. That gives good appreciation to ancient landmark.
    Daylight saving time means that real midnight is around 1:30 over there. Next week I'm heading to real midnight sun region in northern Norway. I hope the sun actually shines there!

    Hello Kari,
    Yes, she is prettier than most cows but has a hairstyle like a modern football player. Probably no tattoos, but a chip in her ear. A very nice portrait kind of photo with perfectly managed light and sharpness and a suitably fine green background.

    Hi Paul,
    To me it is not a winter photo. Just some brown tones give a hint that it is not summer, but on the other hand brown lawn could also be due to heat and draught of summer too.
    Beautiful view of old fortifications on a sunny day. That paved path gives nice perspective.

    Hi Jorge,
    Indeed the colours are as saturated as on traffic lights. Especially against shady and grey stone wall. Thanks for showing, that was new to me.

    Hi Jean,
    Lake Garda on the southern edge of the Alps is a region I really should visit some day. Nice to see the lake and steep mountain slopes ant the town that has been built on narrow strip along the shore. I wist there was brighter sunshine on the foreground as now the contrast to the bright sky is quite strong.

    Hi Alex
    An engaging symmetrical compo when converging lines of the pavement leads up to the imposing fortification giving all the strong impact backed by some vivid colours, immaculate detail and superb contrast to polarised blue sky! The flag's bold colours gives this the extra punchy finishing touch. A lovely historic capture, Congrats.

    Hi Angel
    Beautiful hi-view point and scenic beach scape which is very much benefited from subtle light, rich colours and contrast. Lovely how curvy lines stretches smoothly into the distant adding lots of depth and great too how the shadows and the figs draw attention adding into whole compo beautifully. You were there at a lovely time of day and captured smartly. Excellent shot!! Congrats

    Hi Lisa
    Excellent low light shot that you have chosen from an interesting and dramatic point of view - Just magical, an image like this reinforces the mystery of standing stones!! and I feel there's something quite mystical about this shot- and it may be that glow around the old ancient stones.

    You seem to have captured the atmosphere and mood very well darkened by the lovely twilight sky whereas the sparkle in the sky does really adds to make it a striking image. I think your effort is well rewarded, great capture of a place where time stands still.....

    Hi Lucas
    Looks a very intriguing place and a really restful - thinking about living there!. Super take of it with excellent detail enhanced by the brill cloud scape. I like the general shape of the what is obviously a very distinctive place. The contrasting values are excellent. Congrats

    Hello Silvio,
    A splendid view with a fine balance between the mainly pink lower half and the green upper half. I also like the hazy view of the village on the distant hill and the tree to the left, just at the border between pink and green.

    A very well proportioned composition. The palace would need some restoration but it still has a lot of charm and fine details. You captured the rough texture of the brick wall very nicely.

    Hello Serge,
    It's a good composition of the person standing alone in the large square in front of the beautiful buildings. I get the impression that the processing of the clouds is slightly overdone.

    Hello Malgo,
    Three fine photo from one of the towers we have both climbed. Of course I enjoy photos from Vilnius, my personal clear favourite among the Baltic capitals. My strongest memory from the Gediminas Tower is a woman talking in her mobile phone. I heard her loud voice as I was walking up the hill to the tower. She was standing just by the entrance. Then I saw the inside of the tower carefully, climbed to the top and heard her talking from below. When I left after maybe half an hour she was still standing there, talking loudly. I think I spent my time better.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Rob,
    There is a very nice portrait of the tall, handsome man standing next to the white sculpture. It's an amusing photo with many more interesting features seen inside and outside the frame inside the frame. You used the opportunity provided by the mirror very cleverly.
