    Hello Serghei,
    This deer is cute, but we can see from the WS that he might attack! It seems like he really is guarding the store, and he won't let anyone inside unless he feels like it. :-) Nice daily life shot from Nara. I like the view of the shop behind the deer, and, of course, we can also see Hello Kitty. :-)

    Hola Ra,
    This is a very visually appealing photo. I like that the vertical frame is filled with so many horizontal lines. :-) The colorful flowers break up the stairs beautifully and really jump out at us. Together with the added human presence, you have a dynamic scene.

    Hello Chris,
    This is a very effective composition to show just how Dresden has come back to be beautifully rebuilt. The empty lot in the foreground is very symbolic of the destruction and ruins, and then, behind it, we have some gorgeous architecture. Thankfully the city was eventually brought back to its former glory. I wonder why it took so long...

    Hello Craig,
    Cool beach - figuratively and literally. :-) Mountains and sand, a beach with snow...these are combinations that we usually don't see together. I really like the WS, too. The sunny skies give this spot a totally different feeling, Tosca looks happy, too. :-)

    Hello Craig,
    I don't think anyone can ever get tired of seeing classic masterpieces like the Taj Mahal. I like the different levels of people in this view. The edge of what I assume is a pool of water on the bottom compliments the horizontal line just above it. It's such a stunning site.

    What a masterpiece of nature, presented beautifully by you. :-) The change in colors as we move from top to bottom is great. Just looking at this photo for a few minutes is inspiring, and it certainly evokes emotion.

    Hello Dwaipayan,
    This is a lovely composition. I like the way we are sharing the lake view with the couple on the bench. I always enjoy silhouettes, and I also like the way the prayer flags are stretching across the frame. The colors are very vibrant, too.

    Hello Lisa,
    It's nice to find this gem from Spain mixed in with your recent photos from home. :-) The long exposure is great, and the illumination of the bridge and tower really jumps out. I can see there must have been a slight breeze, since there is a gentle blurring of some of the treetops. Nice POV, with the bridge cutting across the frame. By the way, thanks for your recent critiques. I hope all is well. :-)

    Hello Malgo,
    I like this photo, which lets us enjoy the details on this facade along with the main couple. :-) Then we also have the theme of stripes popping up in different places: some shirts, the steps, the facade in the background. Tuscany seems like one giant art gallery, both indoors and also outside. It is definitely a magical place.

    Hello Gerrit,
    This scene, much like the one in the Cuban library, shows the simple way of doing things in Cuba. There are no fancy electronics to be found, just a regular calculator. Once again, there seem to be only women working there. Do men also hold service positions in Cuba, or is it primarily work for women?

    Hello Ricardo,
    Really great POV in this photo. With nobody at all appearing on this staircase, it looks like the inside of a giant seashell. Very nice depth, too. I wonder if you actually had to walk down all these stairs, or there was also an elevator. :-)

    Hello Noel,
    I like the partial desaturation of color to make the orange really stand out. This spot definitely has an older feeling to it, especially with the cobblestones. I personally find license plates of all kinds interesting, so your note was not odd at all. :-)

    Hello Christian,
    Out of the photos in this series, I like this one the best. :-) The beautiful colors of this costume jump out so nicely against the more earthy colors of the background. I also like the blurred castle, and the pose of this person, with their hand touching the red hat.

    Hello Bulent,
    We can definitely feel the raw power of Mother Nature in this scene. The tiny people in the center look like they are about to be swallowed up by the heavy mist. The water looks strong and cold, too. I wonder if a bit more brightness might extra punch to your lovely photo. The mood is more more mysterious in your original version, but just for fun I made a WS. :-)

    Hello Takero,
    This is another fabulous scene from the festival, filled with beautiful ladies. The details on the kimonos are so colorful, and I like the way the two young girls in front are helping to hold each side of the cloth for the woman in front. Great control of focus and depth once again.

    Very lovely silhouettes against the warm colors of the sky. I especially like the outline of the temple, and the decorative detail on the very top. The view is unmistakenly Asian, and very elegant.

    Hello Neyvan,
    This is such a charming corner. I really like this Norwegian style of house, especially the one on the right side, with the blue color and flower boxes in the windows. The cobblestones also add to the charm of this spot. Very nice framing, and I like the way the sun is shining on the houses, too.

    Hello Craig,
    Very cool coincidence of the pink tower and lady in pink. The different boats are interesting, too. I was wondering...you mention how Varanasi was a feast for the eyes, but what about the nose?!! With livestock walking around, and so many people bathing in the river, it must have been a bit pungent! If your photos had a scratch and sniff option, then we would have the full experience. :-)

    Hello Piotr,
    The details on these buildings are so beautiful. I especially like the round sections on the left side. Your POV, a bit above the ground, allows to see more of the artwork over the green treetops. I wonder if you were not able to move back a bit, and include a whole view of the building on the right. A small piece of it is missing from the frame. I know that sometimes we have limited space to move around. :-)
