    Hello Alfred,
    The treatment of the dead in Varanasi is naturally a sensitive matter, but it is hard for any tourist not to try to document the various rituals. TE should not be a site for just "pleasing" pictures. Only lovely views would make it utterly boring. I think this is a good contribution to TE for what it teaches us.

    Hello Carlo,
    This is a beautiful photo. It looks like an overgrown road all covered with flowers. I would be very careful to approach the building this way for fear of stepping on the flowers. You created a very good depth from this well chosen POV.

    I think this lotus flower is not your average flower, it is a power flower! and thank you for your sharing this amazing photo, its history and your narrative. Indeed a very beautiful soft image with its gorgeous colours, great focusing and dof. Totally delicate and superbly presented. Delightful to view, Congrats, TFS.

    Hello Ana,
    The saleswoman is studying her newspaper while at the same time keeping an eye for prospective customers, or maybe thieves. It's a very common view but I like this everyday ordinariness of the neatly stacked fruits and the bags of snacks hanging from above. You treated the light very nicely too.

    Hello Ryszard,
    This is a fine old castle very nicely placed on the green hill. I like the glimpses of other buildings below, which give us some idea of the dimensions and the height of the hill. I also like the "tricolor" of light blue, dark blue and green.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Roger,
    This is a great view of the verdant valley beneath the rugged mountain. It's a well composed photo with a glimpse of a tree and a couple of buildings in the foreground, which help to create a good depth. The light and colors are very good.

    Hello Neyvan,
    I like the simplicity and the quiet beauty of this view. The rocks rise from the sea like the ruins of a submerged old castle. I like the tiny waves of the water and the pastel tones of the distant land. I also like that you included so much sky. The clouds are very nicely shaped.

    Hello Aleksander,
    You have made a very impressive processing and created fantastic contrasts and excellent clarity. The canoeist has created beautiful waves on the silvery surface of the river. Generally the photo has a superb dominance of silvery and golden tones. The sharpness is magnificent too.

    Hello Craig,
    I like that you got so close so that we can really see the man's face, and the barber is reduced to two forearms. The red background is also very good. This is a kind of scene that is so very common all over India, and many other countries, but for some reason I always found it difficult to get good pictures of situations like this. Somehow I myself and the people involved seem to regard this as a too private moment. I've always felt unwelcome when I've got too close to outdoor barbershops. Maybe I should have carried a 250 mm lens.
    Besty wishes,
    Gert

    Simply breathtaking vision homing in on the finer detail of the scene with wonderful water effect and the abstract nature of them. A very well worked composition with both interest and quality in abundance. A wonderful artistic eye you have. Great shot, Congrats.

    Hi Ana
    What comes over to me is your obvious affection for the subject - a wonderful face of experience, a friendly looking elderly, the hint of her hidden smile and strong eye connection which is vital and essentially makes the shot works and talks directly to viewers. An excellent natural candid portrait shot in her habitat that just keeps me humble. I particularly like the framing, lighting and the shape of her headdress. A delightful street shot & warm portrait. Well done, Congrats

    I love these old and rustic colonial chapels. in some aspects it is a typical architecture of this zone and I can find some similarity with those ones of the same time in brazil. very beautiful angle using the trees. TFS.

    generally mangroves are situated in swamps with many clay, here looks like the area is being transformed by the sea. nice view of the hills ahead and the trees isolated by the water.
