    Hej Trevor,
    Ännu en mycket vacker vy från Island. De små husen vid vattner ser nästan ut att huka sig inför de höga bergen. Jag tycker mycket om färgerna, särskilt i den nedre delen: ängen med blommorna och det grunda vattnet med de ljusbruna sandrevlarna. Hela bilden har en mycket mild ton tack vare de mörka molnen.
    Vänliga hälsningar,
    Gert

    Hi Krzysztof
    A crowd puller indeed! This is a wonderful shot and something special that you have adopted a very personal angle into this photo of a most distinctive olde Fiat. Stunningly cute is a word and it certainly suits here. A great photo opportunity well taken and Congrats, TFS

    Hello Malgo,
    The few people you met must have raised their eyebrows when seeing a living sandwich walking around own during the hottest time of the day :-). Good for you you found these shady lanes where the large windows capture the reflections of the opposite side very nicely. You handled the difficult light very well.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Krzysztof,
    Another nice oldie from the days when Skoda cars were not so much respected on Western roads. Today it's a different story. A few decades can create an aura of nostalgic beauty to almost any product. As a photo this is very attractive with so many colourful persons watching the green car.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Klaudio,
    This is a very nice and amusing photo and a quite original composition. The note is interesting but rather less nice. I have been stung by sandflies a few times and didn't enjoy it at all.

    Hi Ike
    I feel the combination of potted plants decorating the characterful balcony of this building make it even more graceful. A fine crop, clarity is adequate with good sharpness filled by the wonderful shades, shadows and well saturated colours. An intriguing capture. Well done shot, Congrats

    Hello Ourania,
    This is a simple but delightful composition of few but distinct features. I love the soft tones of blue and grey, and the diagonal of the mountainside balancing the straight lines of the water and the quay. The woman and the red "thing" (I don't even know what it's called in Swedish) are very nicely placed on thirds. I also like the invisible contact between the woman and the "dear one" outside the view.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Mesut,
    Was this 400 years ago designed to be beautiful or just functional? Whatever the answer, it certainly appeals to most of us today. I love the shapes of the rusty bolts and locks and the well worn pattern and texture of the wood.
    Kind regards,

    Hi Gert
    Bold image and full of surprises, good poses and lively composition that puts your point across very well indeed. This is good observation in the first place, an ideal for candid as she seems totally unaware of her surroundings and well juxtapositioned to that catchy miss piggy waiting to be roasted! but wonder if she is earwigging. It is indeed a lovely humorous and compelling image with lovely splashes of colour against the stark water. You give everyone a smile who look at them, Congrats

    Hello Kasia,
    All these photos remind me of how eastern Turkey looked in the 70's (and probably still does). In spite of the billions of dollars streaming to the ruling families in Baku most of Azerbaijan still seems to be a very traditional country, where charming photos like these are still possible. The little boy sends you a nice smile and he is probably very proud of riding with his dad.

    Hello Ann,
    This is an excellent composition with fine colours and you looked around well for the perfect POV. The combination of space needle and glass flowers (or whatever they're supposed to mean) is very amusing and extremely eye-catching. This is a smart photo that makes me smile.

    Hello Ryszard,
    A very elegant composition of yellow, green and blue, with fine lines and the distinct features of the bales which have been placed irregularly on top of the hill. An agricultural landscape seen through the eyes of an artist.

    Hello Nicolas,
    An attractive minimalistic composition of black, blue and white. The jet stream creates a superb, diagonal balance to the dark mountain, where the summit is catching the first rays of the sun. Very simple but as always very smart and elegant.

    Hello Carlo,
    I like how you included so much how the wall. It creates a space around the elderly men sitting closely together in the corner, near the bust of Emanuelli. The ochre colour also makes this otherwise rather discreet somposition quite eye-catching.

    Hi Claude - I really like this monochromatic shot. The frame is beautifully divided into shapes of texture and tone and the balance of the composition is excellent. The couple sitting on the bench on the margin of earth and sky and protected by the slight bend in the tree canopy are perfectly placed. This is a top shot!

    Warm regards.
