    Bonjour Jean,
    quite an extraordinary modern art. It seems to be well imitating the silhouette of the church. Pity that the sun was not on the other side to lit the church facade directly.
    In spite of challenging light the final effect is very eye pleasing.

    Hi Pedro,
    beautiful building so stylish and colorful. The red goes so well with the blue sky!
    I feel still attracted to yoru Nicaragua photos although I probably know equally little about Mexico :(
    So in the end all your gallery is quite exciting for me.
    Excellent work here,

    Hi Jean,
    I thought it was green which was supposed to have a calming effect on people, but I suppose all colors of nature could work that way.
    Beautiful scenery.
    It is usually quite hard to show lakes etc in an interesting way. Here I like the fantastic depth of the field which allows us to spot details across the reservoir and enjoy the well thought through vegetation in the foreground.
    Wonderful weather day resulted in pleasant well saturated colors.
    Excellent capture,

    Hi Dibyendu,
    I see we use the same camera :)
    Fantastic blue hour photograph. Usually when they do fireworks display they do it well after dark so sky is in most cases already black, here you could photograph the fireworks at the perfect timing with the sky still dark blue. This is a fantastic combination which rarely happens. Nice also to include the people in the foreground who enjoy the show.
    Excellent work!

    Hi Costantino,
    lovely sunset composition. Except for the beautiful sun capture you have smartly included some people enjoying the view. I like the asymmetry here.
    Fantastic color of the sky.
    Very well seen and captured,

    Hi Lars,
    thank you for taking us on tour across your country. You show so many places I have never heard of before.
    This is quite a picturesque POV, very well used. Nice asymmetrical take. It feels very natural as if taken hundreds of years ago.
    Beautiful postcard style photo, exactly as I like it!

    Ciao Silvio,
    I like very much your reportage from Naples, you show us so many less known aspects of this famous town.
    For some reason none of my friends have visited it and I wouldn't be able to point out any characteristic building or structure there. I just remember seeing a lot of panoramas with harbour and volcano in the distance by Lisa.
    Great reportage!
    Spectacular interior here, very well presented!
    Excellent work,

    Bonjour Denis,
    Wow this is such a beautiful composition. The exotic vegetation makes a lovely foreground. The tower in the distance is quite charming. Both are so well lit and so well saturated!
    Perfect photograph as usually in your gallery,

    Hi Ike,
    Beautiful day for a walk, lovely area with so much diverse vegetation. I can spot the bridge however I have a problem to imagine how does it actually look like. This photo works more like a teaser before you decide to show us more. I am very curious about Jerusalem.
    Beautiful work,

    Hi Gert,
    The girl's scarf is orange indeed but when I look at the people around I don't see to much orange anymore. Does it mean Dutch people dom't care for their king anymore?
    Nice street scene. Eye catching saturated orange☺

    Hi Benny,
    I like very much the design of the church, in particular these disproportionate towers. Itlooks so surreal. I don't recall ever seeing such asymmetry in the facade of a church.
    Although I spent 7 years of my life in Germany this part of the country israther unknown to me. I am glad to see the photo.
    Beautiful light and so pleasantly saturated colors.
    Excellent work!

    Ciao Luciano,
    This is truly a work of art. I like very much the light and the monochromatic rendering. The reflexes are splendid. The person walking on the horizon is like the icing on the cake. I like also the multiple horizontal layers of the composition.
    Excellent work!!

    Hola Luis,
    wow this is really beautiful.
    Unfortunately I will not go too much north so I will certainly not see Pula this time but this encourages me to plan another trip to Croatia in the future especially that I don't think I will be able to afford trips further than Europe and so many countries become dangerous nowadays.

    I like very much the blue sky well seen behind the arches, also the red bus adds some extra color.
    It feels even more impressive than Colosseum in Rome.
    Excellent work!!!

    Hi Rob,
    by definition there is nothing really old in NYC but you did managed to make a composition which feels exactly like it had a contrast between old (boat) and new (architecture behind).
    Empire Sate Building is one of the buildings on Manhattan which I remember, I say that because it changes so much and so fast... So it feels familiar.

    Great POV from the river, quite an original one I believe. Very encouraging to take the river cruise.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Abmdsudi,
    it is sometimes a challenge to decide how much reflection to take or how strong the water color to make or like here: how much underwater features to show. Sometimes I even take to photos with o without polarizer.
    Here you have perfectly balanced both, we can look under water but we also see some reflection.
    Fantastic colors, so well saturated and natural.
    Beautiful final effect!
    Excellent work,

    Czesc Krzysztof,
    bardzo trudno ten stary ratusz dobrze pokazac. Tam zawsze tyle ludzi.
    Podoba mi sie Twoj pomysl z tym duzym znakiem roweru na drodze -oryginalny pierwszy plan.
    Troche szkoda ze wieza tamtego kosciola po prawej tak sie przykleila -kiedy sie jej tak przygladam to mam zludzenie ze jest ona blizej mnie niz sam ratusz.
    Moje ulubione miejsce w Monachium ale trudno oddac cale piekno w jednym kadrze.
    Bardzo przyjemna prezentacja.
    Pozdrawiam serdecznie,

    Widze ze jednak jaworski kosciol jest nieco inny, duzo tu na przyklad niebieskiego koloru.
    Ladnie to pokazales perspektywa doskonale wyrownana, z ogromna ciekawoscia sie temu przygladam.

    I like very much this unique style, it is so rich and decorative! Nice combination of yellow and red.
    You had also lovely sky as a background with subtle cloud pattern.
