    Hola Luis,
    This architecture is beautiful, and you present it very well. It reminds me of the style we might see in Barcelona. I like all the details, of both the wood and the other parts of the design. Together with the frame, this image is elegant and attractive.

    Hello Gert,
    This spot looks a bit like the pile of books I have in a spare room at home. I like how the woman is stretching to reach a book; I just hope they didn't all some tumbling down on her. :-) I like how there are so many different books, some laying down, and some standing vertically. I agree that the WS photo with no people in it lacks a bit of life, but it's still a nice photo, too.

    Hello Chris,
    This is a very pretty winter scene. We don't see yellow skies that often, and this one is very nice. I like the frosted trees, and the mountain in the background, too.

    Hello Serghei,
    This is definitely a cool cloud pattern. I've never seen anything like it before. I like bottom of the frame, and it's nice that the rest of the sky is blue.

    Hello Ricardo,
    The colors and clarity in this scene are beautiful. I like all the lush greenery, and the curve of the railway tracks. The high POV is also great, and thankfully you didn't fall down the bank taking this photo. :-)

    Ciao Luciano,
    I remember you posted a previous photo of this interesting spot, and it's nice to see it again. The colors and drawing on the large rock are great. We can see just how big it is by looking at the tiny person in the foreground. It must be a big impression to see this in person.

    Ciao Carlo,
    Sometimes I like to look at photos that are a bit older, and I found this lovely view. :-) I like this path, that leads us away from the beach, and towards the lovely town. it is a charming spot, and the deep, blue sky makes it even more attractive.

    Ciao Luciano,
    It's different, and a bit sad, to see the inside of this market with such a limited selection of items. I don't think anyone will spend too much time deciding what to buy there like we do in the USA or Italy. I like the pose of the woman at the counter. She looks a bit bored; business must be slow. I hope that as change comes to Cuba, the people will finally have the things they need, like soap and other basic items.

    Hello Takero,
    Excellent focus and presentation in this festival photo. I like the softly-blurred hats in the background, while the person is front is very sharp and elegant. The hat is beautiful, too.

    Hello Benny,
    This photo reminds me of a similar one I took many years ago in Japan. A friend of mine took me to a calligraphy school where I practiced writing some characters, and then I took a photo with my work. :-) I like this partial view of the writing, with the hand and brush included. The red stripe adds a nice bit up color to compliment the white paper and black ink.

    Hello Bulent,
    I was curious about this photo when I saw the thumbnail. I wondered what the vertical line cutting through the frame was, and now I clearly see the you were looking out a window. :-) I like the addition of the window reflections very much, and I prefer this main photo over the WS. The curve of the beach, with all the white buildings at the edge, is attractive.

    Hello Jean,
    This is an interesting composition, and it's hard to tell if we are looking at a close-up, or a wider landscape. I like all the bumps on the ground, and the lines in the snow. The repetitive patterns are very nice.

    Hello Gigi,
    This is a lovely carpet of fall leaves. I always like the idea of filling the entire frame with colorful leaves, with a hint of the ground underneath. These look like they are all maple leaves, and I like their shapes.

    I like this kind of quirky and unexpected scene. The giant beer mug with feet made me smile. :-) I like how the two different subjects are both under lovely arches, too. It's an entertaining street scene.

    Hello Paul,
    The colors here are great! I like this mural as a work of art, but I don't think I'd actually like to live in such a bright house! The cactus plants seem to be waving hello to the viewers. :-) You captured the man walking by at just the right spot. Very nice framing and presentation, too.

    Hello Noel,
    This castle is great. It's exactly what I imagine when I think of a traditional castle, especially the towers. I like the mural very much, too. It definitely is funny how many pictures within pictures were going on when you took this. I wonder if there is a world record for something like that: a photo of someone taking a photo, of someone taking a photo, etc! :-) Very nice composition, with lots to look at and enjoy.

    Hello Noel,
    Beautiful view of the town the the majestic cathedral. I love all the bright colors. It's interesting to see the different levels, which are even more apparent on the left side of the photo. The roofs of the houses are rising upward little by little. It's all very picturesque.

    Hello Lisa,
    Another excellent photo, and I like the choice of B/W for this one. The painted marks on the woman's body, her warm smile, and the blurred background all combine to create a strong composition. It's terrible what she had to endure at the hands of the police, and the subsequent threat to remove her children. I hope human decency will prevail...

    Hello Lisa,
    Lovely photo documenting this march and the reason behind it. We have a history similar acts perpetrated against the Native population here in North America, but I have never seen any marches relating to it. The two girls looking at the camera have lovely smiles, and I hope they will have bright futures ahead.

    Hello Gert,
    Nice little gem from Vilnius. I like the background of bricks, and the archway used as a frame within a frame. The smiling lady looks happy, but the two boys seem a bit depressed. Maybe their parents told them to go out, practice, and earn some money. Hopefully they earned a little pocket change. :-)
