    Hello Arunava,
    I have not gone trekking in such nature and I never will, but it's easy to imagine the feeling of coming safely down to somewhat flatter land and to meet a scenery like this and such stupas or chorten or whatever these structures would be called. The scenery is of course breathtaking - regardless of altitude - and generally the photo is excellent. With some more processing more details could have been brought out from the dark parts of the chorten, but that is really a minor objection. The note is very well written and inspiring.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Costantino,
    This is such a nice photo from the port of Karlovasi. I like the look of the green mountain rising just behind the bay, where nice boats are anchored, and I like the bench on the quay where people can sit down and enjoy the view. The pink and yellow and green nets are beautiful details in this nice photo.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Angel,
    It's a very pretty house, but especially I like the beautiful light and the fine ambience among the people gathered outside. The green chairs and tables connect nicely with the plants on the balconies. The matching colours and the winter light make this an enjoyable photo.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Frank,
    This is an interesting photo of an interesting building. I wouldn't quite compare it to a painting by Mondrian, but certainly the architect must have had a fancy for modernistic art. But there is something strange with this upload. When I saw this title before, there was an entirely different photo. Even earlier tonight I found another photo when clicking on this thumbnail. Strange things are happening on TE.

    Hello Ike,
    As far as I know there are fewer houses and roads on the moon, and probably less vegetation, but maybe the impression of utter desolation is the same. This is not a charming and beautiful scenery but it is highly interesting, even though looking rather unwelcoming. From what I can judge you did a good job with the scanning, and the paper print seems to have kept the colours well.

    Hello Chris,
    A very different kind of "portrait" and a very original sculpture. I never heard of this before, but the artist had a fascinating idea. I find it artistically attractive, and in any case the world has more than enough statues of ruthless male "heroes".

    Hello Achim,
    This is possibly the nicest place in Zagreb. I was standing in almost exactly the same spot less than one month before you and took almost the same photo. The main difference was that I was blessed with fine weather and my photo was vertical. You did your best on this rainy day and the elegance of the column and the buildings remained the same.

    Hello Klaudio,
    This is a good daily life snapshot. The light is fine and the colours are good, even though the light is mainly artificial. It's a nice and natural scene and the variety of bread is amazing. I certainly think that countries with a high level of migration become more dynamic societies than those who try to keep their borders shut, and not just because of a greater variety of bread.
    Best regards,
    Gert

    A very powerful artwork, and a strong capture of it. Good slanting light & shadows.

    Women used as battlefields by stupid, stupid men...argh...Kosovo is no exception, unfortunately.

    Hello Malgorzata

    This type of stairs makes a familiar theme in photography, so it's always great to look out for some creative variations on it. Here I like the contrast between the couple up and the two individuals down. Also the bl/w treatment is succesful, if you ask me. Well spotted & well captured.
    Congratulations.

    Hi Burak
    What a lovely statue facing the sea so very pleasing to look at! The soft lighting really suits the subject she looks very tranquil, I would crop some or detone the obtrusive behind, imho it attracts a bit from the main subject. A great shot, Congrats

    Those fallen trees on the bottom of the extremely clear lake are quite impressive elements. Especially the one with the stump. Lovely, almost all green lake view.

    The walls of that castle follow shapes of rocks closely. I didn't even recognize it as a castle from the fingerprint. Quite impressive, and it's good to see the Greek flag on the top.

    I've never heard of a special festival of paper flowers. That surely looks charming. That path is sototally covered by all those decorations. Foreground shows flower details clearly.

    The big size version really reveals specialty of that arch. Really impressive. It certainly gives impression that this little town is close to nature. Autumn colours on that birch add extra charm.

    I'm sure the bus designer had the idea of creating friendly impression when he or she added that smile. Direct angle shows it clearly and almost square format fits well.
