    This just looks so typically HDR, seems to have brought out the best in this image, such are the autumnal colours, light and exposure and lovely detail through the rest of the shot is there for all to see. Lovely imposing palace and the foliage combination to finish off nicely. Well done, TFS

    Hello Malgo,
    This is certainly a beautiful church, but it is so extravagant that it makes me think of a Disney movie or a fairytale book. It's amazing in any case and a fine photo with superb colours. Regarding the visitors, the Chinese can still afford to travel, but it seems there will be a lot fewer Russians traveling to distant countries the next few years.

    Hello Krzysztof,
    This is indeed a very beautiful building with superb details. The beautiful weather and fine colours make it look even better. Personally I also like the inclusion of the woman passing by, adding some life to the composition.

    Hello Ryszard,
    A very pleasant composition, well balanced and with fine colours. The people on the bench are all facing the right direction, looking into the photo. It's a simple but very attractive photo.

    Hello Craig,
    I see no technical problems here, but in any case it's not technical perfection that makes a photo great. To my mind the composition and the content of a photo is nearly everything (as long as it's not totally blurred or tilted). This is a fine little unimportant moment you have captured. A woman in red hanging laundry outside a white wall and a lady in blue hanging laundry on a red (maybe pink) wall. A white window on the red wall and a green plant framing that wall. A fine example of matching colors and coincidences.
    Have a great weekend,
    Gert

    Hello Berek,
    This is the way to photograph the Eiffel tower: just to keep it discreetly in the background as an indication of the location. The focus is entirely on the young girls having fun, but I also like the line of lampposts leading my eyes towards the trees at mid level.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Wolfgang,
    The henna decorations on the hands and feet of the woman to the right makes me think she is newly married, in which case she probably has some amazing experiences to tell her friend about. I like the relaxed spontaneity and ordinariness of this shot, as well as the nice colours.

    Hello Piotr,
    It's never much fun to stay in a hospital, but the warm light streaming out from these windows make this look like a rather cosy place. The buildings as such are very elegant and you have handled the blue hour light perfectly with an excellent exposure.

    A nice wide landscape showing the compact dwelling bounded by snowy mountain range in limited colour range. A good record shot of the day but the brightest area of the sky appears to be over exposed disracting to a certain extend. Well done, Congrats

    Hi Patrick
    Another spectacular panorama at sunrise over Bromo to herald a new day with ash venting is occurring from the summit reminding us that the volcano never sleeps ....

    The pastel colours are stunning and I love the angle cut by the foreground which gives it perspective and sense of depth. A simply fabulous image, one to be proud of, My compliments.

    Hi Mesut
    Glass in the making, an art and skill that I much admire - something I'd dearly love to shoot. Your exposure on this is very good I really like the effect of the flame & smoke and the heat in the work area is tremendous! Good attention to detail and the mastery of it well shot. Excellent close up work, Congrats

    HI Pilar
    This is an intriguing idea you could walk past without spotting it! A strong reflection that works really well with good attention on composition at the taking stage and a well noticed detail. There's a good deal of space at the top which nicely balanced by the street lamp and your dof control is just superb for this kind of shot definitely a sound basis for a whole capture. A wonderfully regimented reflection & use of wide angle effect with great colour throughout & smartly exposed. Appealing to look at. Well done, Congrats

    Hello Kasia,
    A Merry Christmas to you too. I'm looking forward to seeing more of your pictures from Iraq, as well as Nepal. This one has a fine blue hour atmosphere and to me it is more exotic than any "normal! view from Kathmandu. I am fairly sure this peaceful little oasis didn't exist 42 years ago.
    All the best,
