    Hello Abmdsudi,
    You have a talent for capturing everyday life, and framing it in a visually-striking way. It looks like you partially desaturated most of this scene, which is very effective. The woman's clothes are very colorful and she definitely stands out. I like her warm smile and the way she looks relaxed and welcoming, despite her challenging life.

    Hello Gert,
    I like people who have their own sense of style, and the men here certainly fit into that category. :-) That shiny, purple hood and the turquoise sunglasses are quite a combination. Luckily there are usually interesting characters to be found at flea markets. Yes, the sky is a bit blown out, but I do also like the yellow building in the background.

    Hello Claude,
    It's great that only one, lonely person was siting on the stairs. He stands out against the repeating handrails. The steps and handrails really create a nice, graphic pattern, too. Thanks to the words over the doors, we know what city we're viewing, as well. :-)

    Hello Costantino,
    What a beautiful sky. The soft colors are wonderful, and the blue color seems to seep down towards the horizon, creating an interesting effect.I like the dark foreground, and the small silhouettes of the people, too.

    Hello Noel,
    The effect created by the mist is really magical. It looks like the sun is covered in a thin layer of gauze. I also like how the mist has settled in between the trees. Really nice nature shot. :-)

    Hello Jean,
    So you are back in Miami Beach again. You must like it. :-) I spent many childhood summers there with my grandparents, but I haven't been back recently. This artwork is something new, and I like the colors. Warm weather, palm trees, and attractive colors are all a big part of Miami Beach, and this photo shows that beautifully.

    Hello Jean,
    This inn is very charming, and it's nice to see the yellow bicycle on top and all the flags. The details that also jump out at me are all those metal containers in the back, (I don't know if they're empty or not), and I couldn't help but notice the small sign showing that the inn is protected by ADT! I see a lot of those in my neighborhood, too. :-)

    Hello Chris,
    There's also a Union Square here in NYC. :-) This one has more color. I really like the different architectural styles, and all the great details. The old-fashioned street lamps are great, too. There's a nice sense of history and culture in this spot.

    Hello Piotr,
    It's so nice to see this bit of Jewish culture from Poland. I can imagine the vibrant community that once existed there. This simple, enclosed balcony speaks to me in a way, whispering about history and times past.

    Hello Gert,
    I like this scene because it's gritty and real. The worn out wall and bench, the pile of bags, the open door, all have character. Then there are the two chatting women who bring the scene to life. Very nice. :-)

    Hello Craig,
    This scene was definitely begging to be photographed. All the colorful writing is great. Usually there is some English mixed in, but there isn't any here. I like the shy smiles of the girls, and the way they're sitting, too. Great composition. :-)

    Hello Serghei,
    this is something different and very interesting, too. Those metal barriers are a strange thing to find in a river. The man has a candle, and the woman seems very happy. It's a unique photo.

    Hello Paul,
    Wow! That's a lot of color! It's nice to visit a place like this, but I don't know about actually living there. I like a few bright buildings, but a whole town is a lot! :-) Really nice capture, with the two boys playing, and the very vibrant door.

    Hello Aleksandar,
    This is a beautiful example of traditional German architecture. I've been looking at all the details, and there are so many nice ones. I like the man holding a glass near the top, the wine glasses, and the writing "in vino veritas". The style is very charming, and I like that a couple of people are standing in front, too.

    Hello Luis,
    This giant mural really does stand out. The colors are so vibrant, and it's so long! The bench is also very artistic, and I like how you included two people sitting at the far end. The WS photo is very different than this one. It seems that no clothes were necessary - even to do a handstand!

    Hello Gyorgy,
    I like "old school" style, and this gentleman would certainly fit in a century ago. I like the way he is looking at your camera, and the rack of old post cards behind him. I don't mind the tight crop. :-)

    Hello Nicolas,
    This is like a painting done by Mother Nature. I like how the rays of sun are trying to shine through the delicate clouds. The color in the sky is also beautiful. This moment probably passed quickly, but you were lucky enough to capture it.

    I love the red color and details of this facade. This building certainly stands out among the others. I,wish we had a few more splashes of bright, architectural color here in NYC, but for now I'll just enjoy your photo. :-)

    The pose of this Gaiko is so delicate. I like the way her hand is positioned, and the way she is looking at the small wind wheel. Once again, the colors are beautiful, and you handled the depth and focus perfectly.

    Hello Craig,
    This is a beautiful view of the city skyline, and the planetarium in the foreground is cool, too. What's that weird thing standing on the light turquoise ground in front of the entrance? Your drone sure knows how to take some great shots. ;-)
