    Hi Craig
    Yes, you're right, I love your note. :-)
    You captured the menacing nature of this building in your photo. By placing it in a wider context you made it stand out and kind of look a bit awkward, it immediately draws attention. almost sends shivers down my spine... (but then... I have read your note...).
    I'll miss TE and will be back as soon as I start working daytime/weekdays rather than 24/7.

    Good documentary photos can't always be sharp. What counts is you captured the moment and the mood.
    Also, I really like the low key feel and the composition with the smoking man framed by others and inclusion of the wall with whatever is written on it.
    Iyi hafta! :-)

    Hi Gert
    Before I disappear from TE... This image was featured on the home page today.
    Strong sense of place with the iconic Armenian church, the person of the gardener adds to the atmosphere of summer.
    Both the main upload and the WS photos brings back memories of my previous stay in Armenia in 2010.

    I couldn't think of a better title... :-) I haven't yet had a chance to see those new additions to Canary Wharf.
    Sorry to hear it your note disappeared without a trace, it sometimes happens to me and it's so annoying.

    Hi Mike
    You certainly captured the moment of special tenderness. Very good title and note too. Great street candid, they seem as oblivious to your presence and your camera as they must be, at that age characterized with devil-may-care attitude, still oblivious to all the dangers, annoyances and responsibilities of adult life.
    Have a nice weekend

    Fajne polaczenie wzorow i kolorow. Krzywizny nadaja surrealistycznego tonu, podobnie jak w zdjeciu z odbiciami, mimo ze tym razem to zupelnie inny typ fotografii.

    Great timing, you really recorded the moment described in the note. I was glad to read that the boy was fine in a moment or two.
    I like the contrast and minimalist composition.

    Hi Gert
    Another West African market... and another fascinating photo full of details to look at. The woman walking into the frame creates a dynamic element of what otherwise would have been a fairly static composition. You didn't cut half of the baby off, just half of her (I think) head, but quite a recognisable and colourful part is already in the photo.
    Together with the WS images this is a fascinating reportage that transports me 26 years back.

    Beautiful portrait, great moment captured! I like the traditional clothes, I know people only wear them on certain occasions. Red is a very good addition to the overall pastel colours of the image.

    Very clever image. The various geometric shapes look as if they were radiating from the lady looking at them. The colours are eye-catching and the graphic qualities outstanding.

    Beautiful photograph with masterful depiction of perspective but also wonderful colours and the three boys placed in the best possible way almost as if they were posing for you.
    I read you note with great interest, I was there during the election.
    Great title too to match your note. I wish them all the best.

    Nie wiem, czemu uwazasz, ze ta kompozycja nie jest dobra?? Masz tu regule trzech, prosty horyzont, druga "warstwa" rybakow fajnie przeswieca przez siec pierwszego. No i bardzo dobre chmurki-baranki.

    Hi Abmdsudi
    Excellent panned image with movement well captured. It proves there is no such thing as bad weather, there are only lazy photographers... ;-)
    Maybe, as you say, the cart would have been better shown in a more central position without the back of it cropped of. But one could argue that, as it is, it creates a dynamic feeling as if it has just run into the frame and is heading for that empty space on the right... A matter of interpretation... ;-)
