    Hello Ryszard,
    You always find these colorful walls and you present them well. I wouldn't be surprised if this, and others, actually look better in your photos than in reality. It is very much a matter of cropping and balancing.

    Hello Malgo,
    This is quite a remarkable view, not just for the spectacular rainbows and the general environment but for the time of the day it was taken. Very nice.

    Hello Takero,
    This is a beautiful and original portrait. The young lady has a very pretty profile and her straw hat and yellow dress contribute greatly to the nice photo.

    Hello Luciano,
    Bell towers are often great places för surprising photos. This one is remarkably colorful and amusing. The persons also placed themselves neatly into a perfect composition, and you presented it very nicely. The clarity and the distinct details are superb.

    Hello Carlo,
    This is a very amusing and cute photo. I think it will charm everyone. And at least the two largest bears match the colour of the wall perfectly. You made a fine observation.

    A beautiful old house in an alley of cobbled stones. I love the fine details of the wall and how you have captured the texture of the stones so well.

    Hi Claude
    Spent a bit of time pondering as this striking shot
    appeals to me with its simplicity but bold enough to draw attention. It condenses the colours nicely with good effect on the water spray, and your wonderful eye for composition is admired. Congrats

    nice flagrant of the daily life of these people waiting for tourist money. I never tried top take images of them because I never know how would be the price and I don't want to ask about. in cuzco a small girl gave me lots of troubles when I paid her less money than she wanted, girls from a restaurant save me.

    Hi Delphine
    Would like to see this really big, well stitched and I like the composition with superb lead line. I think this type of scene is really only done justice in this panoramic format. You've filled the frame really well there. I admire you for getting out of the rat race and following your dreams!! Great capture, Congrats

    This is a very eye-catching and elegant composition. It's cleverly and carefully made and neatly cropped. The light is excellently handled and the clouds create a fantastic background.

    Hello Jasmine,
    Welcome back. This is a remarkably elegant staircase with a very nice brown frame. Usually staircases are photographed from above, so this is a welcome new angle. The beautiful walls are very well illuminated.

    Hello John,
    I have seen more artistically created graffiti but there is nothing wrong with the intensity of the colours. I am convinced that the army barracks were a lot greyer when they were still used for military purposes. It seems that those who made this couldn't agree on the design.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Craig,
    This would have been taken moments before or after an earlier photo from the same spot. The light is slightly different but the view is the same. It is beyond doubt a terrific view and I understand that you snapped away as much as you could while the light lasted. But you should be careful jumping on slippery rocks. Didn't you injure a leg or a foot in similar circumstances somewhere else? Greece maybe.
    Best wishes,
    Gert

    Hello Bev,
    Isn't it amazing what a few swans can do to a photo? The tree is beautiful and the shadows create a fine pattern on its trunk, but it's the swans that are mainly responsible for the pleasant atmosphere of this photo.

    Hello Mesut,
    A wonderful view of the dense forests of Turkey's northeastern Black Sea coast. It's a very well exposed photo which captures the clouds and sky perfectly.
    The first time I travelled through this area, crossing the mountains from Erzurum to Trabzon, I was amazed at the views. I could hardly believe I was still in Turkey. It was so different from the Anatolian interior.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
