    Hello Pierre,
    This is a very nice and graphically attractive photo in a suitable choice of B&W. I like the dark features of the abandoned benches and the small trees also looking abandoned in all the snow. The person with a child entering the view from the right are a nice feature. The child is probably the only one around who thoroughly enjoys this weather. I enjoy the view.

    Hello Ourania,
    I have never been to Kalymnos but I know this view very well. The same event takes place the same way every day on so many islands. There are so many details, so many activities and so many colours to enjoy in this view. I don't know if the hands on the left side were deliberately included, or if you just couldn't avoid them, but I like them. They make me recall the excitement of staying on board while watching the hustle and bustle on the pier during the 10 minutes or so between arrival and departure.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Iain,
    Such fantastic walls and such a fantastic girl in such a .... environment. What a strange mix of beauty and misery. The buildings would attract any photographer but it's the girl that makes this composition all on her own. I wonder if the Queen of Sheba ever lived in that palace, or if she actually lived in northern Yemen, or if she ever existed at all.

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    The sea makes a mighty view and the seemingly gentle waves have a soothing beauty. The boat (or maybe boats) brings me back to reality and makes me realize the size of these really not so gentle waves. The photo is a reminder of the power of nature, done in an artistic way.

    Hi Murat
    At glance the golden tones is a clear winning factor accentuating the strong shapes of the roller coaster dominating the frame. It makes for an interesting image, stuffed with eye-catching colour with some other complementary features. Your blanced exposure is exquisite. Excellent snap, Congrats.

    Hi Danie
    Great approach how to show the city skyline in an inviting & absorbing way. You have perfectly placed the imposing edifices as an extremely strong point to hook the eye. Wonderful shadow play, rich colour tone under that brill low angled sunlight supported by bags of sumptuous detail throughout. What a gorgeous sky to finish off and your shot does justice to the grandeur and majesty of the palace. A remarkable capture and thks for sharing, my compliments.

    Hi Benny
    Immense depth, beautiful wide angle & visual perspective adorned by soothing light and tonal contrast as the repetitive structures and the stark figs command great view! Excellent shot.

    Hello Silvio,
    This is a fantastic photo. I had to look very closely and read the note carefully to make sure this is not a painting. I love the mild colours of the fields and the narrow road winding between them down the hill.

    Hi Gyorgy
    One of the best things about photography is pictures like this. A split-second of time that captures a specific moment, just look at their excitement is beaming across it as he is about to get splattered to every single freezing tingle. All that from a split-second, great fun and nice candid nature to the shot! Congrats

    A rather diff lighting condition with just enough detail to draw the eye with warm catchy mid ground rests the focus effectively. Lovely sense of depth, perspective and full of calmness, Congrats.

    Hi Philippe
    Excellent photo - like the angle from which you shot it, I love the solid shapes, detail, natural colours and contrast while the shadows gives an extra depth.
    Superbly photographed and presented, what a wonderful building...Congrats

    very nice moment of joy especially well photographed. I liked the quality and the natural joy we can see and feel here. a face at left is similar with a friend I have, curiously the boy is much more similar with her than her sons.

    Hi Luis
    The facades are beautiful with a mixture of timber architectural styles and the light really displays the charms of these building to the fullest. Fabulous array of colours that you managed to get most of it in really displays the uniqueness of this graceful sight. Wonderful detailed image, Congrats.

    Hello Serge,
    Amazing architecture in a very well taken photo where you made good use of reflections and the contrasts between the grey clouds and the pastel colors of the buildings. I enjoy the the colourful bottom line of trees and people.

    Hello Christiane,
    I think the Las vegas ideas of good taste and aesthetics are not quite the same as mine, but for a photo anything is all right. You found a good angle with the figure in the foreground and an abundance of flowers and lanterns leading me to the bridge and across to more colours. The light is superbly handled.
    Kind regards,

    A well framed image to attract the eyes with all the elements thrown in and everything seems so well cared for and beautifully laid out. The long shadow is especially attractive, clinching the capture superbly. Congrats
