    Hi Gert
    Nice series of photos depicting the event, even if we are not exactly sure what it was all about. I like the way you captured the colourful crown and the mood. The sunshine adds to the atmosphere of a jolly and relaxed summer day.
    If you took a photo of one of the leaflets I could probably tell you what they said. :-) Makes me wonder if you can understand Norwegian, Danish etc. just like the Slavs understand (more or less - sometimes less rather than more...) one another?
    Have a nice evening

    Hi Gert
    I must say - perfect timing! The man is hanging in the air, looking as if he were ready to ride his bike to the moon... ;-)
    I remember the colour run photo you posted earlier. Did I tell you it reminds me of the holi festival in India (which I've never seen but would like to)?
    I've just come back from a short break in Polska. :-)

    Hi Erling
    Both you and Fredrik posted wonderful night images from two different parts of the world.
    I really like the way you conveyed the colours and lights here and the composition with all the lines is beautiful.

    Hi Will
    You have a talent for conveying the character and mood of the places you photograph. This image would make for a great advert for the Trattoria al Ponte.
    Is this your wife posing??

    Hi Lisa
    Beautiful colours and dramatic light!
    The thumbnail doesn't do this image justice. The textures and patterns in the foreground are what really makes it special for me.

    Hi Gert
    I can see you really were into graphic and creative during that trip. :-) This is not the first photo like this and probably not the last one.
    I agree that the textures of the various surfaces enhance the composition. I also think that the manhole cover creates yet another focus point and balances the composition.

    Hi Fredrik
    Not bad for only one day spent in this city! You recorded your visit with a beautiful photo.
    I like the contrasting colours and the movement of the ferris wheel so well conveyed. Well-balance composition too.

    Hi Jasmine
    Simple image of stark beauty. It depicts the mood of a beach in winter so well - empty with overcast light and stormy sea.
    Thank you for coming to London to meet me and see the exhibition! :-) I hope you found Kevin eventually...

    Hi Ann
    I really like the unusual colours in this photo: the saturated yellows of the landscape, menacing sky and unusually light wet road surface.
    The composition drags the viewer in, instantly makes me want to go travelling.

    Hi Will
    I always like your b&w work (have I said it before??). No matter whether the image was taken long time ago or very recently, you always manage to conjure the atmosphere of the days gone by.
    Good job you could borrow another camera!

    Hi Abmdsudi
    Well done on turning your lens away from the tourist attractions and capturing some real life. I wish tourists took interest in the local people a bit more during their travels.
    Thanks for sharing

    Hi again
    Interesting to see a wider view taken in the same location.
    You are right, this place doesn't seem busy at all. Compared to what you describe in the note, this looks as if the street had been closed for your photo shoot and the people were posing (almost difficult to believe they weren't - 3 pairs of people, perfectly placed in the photo... ;)
    Have a nice Sunday

    Your architectural photos are always very very good and this one is no exception! Well selected detail masterfully composed and cropped.

    I'm glad you are posting more photos from Iran, particularly from the beautiful city if Yazd. I can see I have missed a few and I'm going to make up for this today (as well as check that Lonely Planet site...).
    You captured an interesting combination of colours and also the old and the new - not just the motorbike, but also smaller details such as a rather modern intercom on the ancient wall.

    Well-spent 1.5 hours from photographic point of view. :-) Interesting silhouette and well-captured background which looks as if the image had been panned (if not for the note explaining the blur was created by the moving train of course).

    Hi Gyorgy
    Six months after my winter trip to Bled, it's nice to see a beautiful photo of this place taken in the summer. Lovely reflection and the clouds mirror the shape of the mountain and the island.

    Hi again Gert
    I'm afraid I don't agree with your statement that there is nothing special about this image!
    To start with, it's very well spotted, perfectly timed and thoughtfully composed. The shadows are underexposed which makes for a neat dark background and separates the two different worlds captured in the photo.
    For me the message in this image is not just about age differences but also wealth disparity connected with age in the so-called A8 EU countries. It almost seems that the changes started in 1989 in Poland were intended to benefit young people only with no consideration or recognition for the older generations.
    Have a nice afternoon

    Magnificent backdrop of impressive architecture nicely combined with trees and fountains.
    But of course what makes the photo original is the kids in the foreground. Nice to get so many people in red in one image! :-) Plus a few matching green and blue elements.
