    Hello Rob,
    Here's a picture I would have loved to take. I am fascinated by what you can discover when looking straight down at something. The effects are often surprising and amazing, especially when people are involved, like here. And when the view from above is as colourful as here, and with so much happening down there, the result is stunning. Of course you have also cropped this perfectly neatly. This goes to my favorites, no doubt.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Mike

    Best of both worlds, the castle and the boats. You got both here. And then the sky is the third dog...

    Hello again dear Takero

    And this is even better than the ones before.
    Although...it is a different category, really.
    Great to see an overview of all the action here.

    Hello Bev

    Considering the difficulties in finding a right pov, I think you did really well, but the horse's head against the blue sky is of course the strongest part.

    Hello dear Abmdsudi

    Low light environment, yet you brought out the colours. The man himself is central, but it's all the details that I really like: the crutches, the teapot and the light falling on the shutters in the back.

    Cheers

    This works really well in this panorama format, Daniel. Goodbye summer...but the season is doing overtime here in Belgium. Can't really complain about it...

    Hello Leszek

    This one just HAS to be in this kind of narrow and high format. The two people walking there are well placed and give us a sense of scale, which is essential to appreciate the location here. A fine observation.

    Hello Daniel,
    It's a nice street scene in the evening. The duomo is a fine background detail and an indication of which city we are seeing, but the photo is more about the reflections in the street, the hotel signs and the people out to enjoy the evening. It's a nice composition and well exposed.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Nicolas,
    This is a wonderful, colourful and charming photo, excellently composed with the well placed seagull. I also like the reflections of the "sail" and the fine blueish tone. The clarity of the photo is lovely..

    Hello György,
    There is quite a clash of architectural styles in this photo. Your fish-eye takes in a large part of central Frankfurt. There is also a lot of sky, which gives fine prominence to the nicely shaped clouds. It's a fine view of the city and a technically good photo, but maybe not your very most exciting one. But it's perfectly okay.
    Best regards,
    Gert

    Hello Lisa,
    How could I possibly write a comment that could match those lyrics by Percy French? (Yes I checked it up.) I can only say that it is a lovely scenery with great green tones and a fine play of shady and sunny areas. It's shot from a fine point and perfectly exposed.

    Hello Michael,
    The overturned boat and the ropes make a superb foreground to the dramatic view of the castle. You were lucky to have these nice clouds which you apparently just had to improve very lightly to create a superb backdrop to the view. I can't imagine that the effect of this photo would had been the same in colours.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Serge,
    It's a smart and elegant composition with a very good view of the people doing yoga just below the two faces of the statue. I think the PP could have been slightly better. To my mind there is a certain lack of contrasts and the colours don't have the best clarity. I hope you will accept my workshop.
    Kind regards,

    Hi Murat
    Excellent compo portraying the stuff - interesting exhibit - a glimpse at history that each item shows its own attraction unifying all together. Some bold colours really enhances the scene tenfold and people interaction is always of great value here. Good doc picture well shot, Congrats
