    Hello Stephen,
    I like very much both the graphic impression you created with your composition and the precision of the description. You cropped the scene excellently and adjusted the frame on its style, there's superb dynamism enhanced by the clouds as well. You managed light and contrast very effectively, there's great clarity all over. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great weekend,

    Hello Mariusz.
    Fantastic this composition with the beautiful square, whose rectangular shape, comes in handy to give a good insight into the facade of the church, the floor gives a good geometric effect, a place that is very quiet tourists.
    Very effective colorful, highlighting the details of the image.

    Hello Lars,
    I like very much the 3D effect in both pictures, especially in the main post, the building is very cute and looks like a toy. In this picture you have focused entirely on it and the details you captured are superb, even in the shade. The workshop picture helps us realize that the setting is spacious and even more inviting. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great weekend,

    Hello Luis,
    A perfect composition of the ramparts of Dubrovnik seen through a hole in the wall. You show a beautiful area just outside the old city with a good view of the sea. The colours are natural and well saturated and the perfect exposure has managed the dark and light areas equally well.
    Kind regards,

    Hola Alexandre.
    Otra maravillosa imagen de las cataratas, en una perspectiva muy diferente, aqui las altas palmeras en primer plano dan una belleza complementaria, al lugar ya de por si grandioso.
    Muy eficaz colorido, que destaca los detalles de la imagen.
    Una buena gestion, tanto de la luminosidad, como de la nitidez.
    Disfruta del fin de semana.
    Mis mejores deseos para ti.

    Hi Dan.
    A wonderful postcard of this island, with the precious population occupying all this hill, which seems almost a small peninsula that juts into the sea, which has a beautiful blue, anchored boats give a great charm.
    Very effective colorful, highlighting the details of the image.
    Good management of both the brightness and sharpness.

    Hello Gerrit,
    it's a beautiful place and there's no wonder it allures visitors with its elegance. Your composition is great, I like how the slightly elevated viewpoint brings out the lines and depth of the foreground, the windmill is a superb focal point. The angle of the light darkened the colours a bit but it also gave a fine, glassy texture on the water and nice reflections. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great weekend,

    Hi Serge
    Good idea, something different and I Like the mix of focus points which makes the eye rove around the image. Very interesting shot with street mirror reflecting a beautiful architectures that makes the viewer think and look past and into the reflection while the local sign is an excellent reference point You have a good eye for spotting opportunities, Well done shot, Congrats

    Hello Daniel,
    I fear I would be disappointed by the herds of tourists in a city like Florence, having seen it the first time 47 years ago when things were different. But I agree that it is a fantastic place with more important sights and beautiful streets than almost any other city in the world. This fine photo confirms that quite well.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Kalispera Ourania, and many thanks for your critique on mine - sharp perception you had expressed.
    As for this picture: What made it so unique, is the white and beautiful stairs-case leading down to the beach (assuming so). It has a nice purple tint but contrast superbly to the darkening bay. Also, very notable here is the scaled shading from left to right over water, with different tones (meaning POV due north). And on another note I'd add, an extraordinary combined clear view with the mountains on far side, lamp-posts along the promenade already lit, and the motion of the boat in the mid-picture range.
    So much is perfectly combined here - must say an attractive photo to look at.
    Enjoy your weekend, my friend.

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    This is a masterpiece of well managed natural light. This interior with its brown, green and yellow details, the light coming through windows to the left and two persons quietly talking, seen from a slight distance, makes me think of paintings by the great Dutch master Vermeer. Admittedly I never saw any Uyghurs in his paintings, but the atmosphere is similar. That's really timeless. This has to go to my favourites.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Daniel,
    I haven't travelled as much as you but I once stayed in Florence for five weeks and I agree with your note and title. The view is fantastic and, when one thinks of the cultural and historical treasures it contains, there's no limit to one's fascination. I appreciate the balance, depth and wealth of details in your picture. The colours are very attractive. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonjour Nicou,
    a very lovely and attractive picture for its strong contrasts and graphic layout. I like very much the light and the bold, natural colours. With only a few features we get a comprehensible glimpse of the scenery. I also like the sense of tranquility and stillness, the boats look like a couple that's fallen asleep while sunbathing:) Congratulations and thank you!

    Hi Benny
    A fine well observed still life study, sometimes the most simple subjects can be very effective. What a super vivid display with lovely harmonious colours taken with an artistic touch catching those common things and to bring them into real art works! Cant help but admire those crafty hands behind these...

    Time to sit back now and admire after all your hard work.
    Best wishes

    Hello Ike,
    I like how your composition gave a valid and interesting role to poles and cables, it's as if they were responsible of holding up the setting. I also like the angle of the bridge and the placement of the tram, they enhance dynamism. The setting is clear, comprehensive and intriguing in all its contrasts. Congratulations and thank you!

    an original and interesting point of view, I like very much the placement of the church in the middle of the highest level, the sky serves as an excellent backdrop. I also like the colours of the foreground scenery, its clarity and its elegant architecture. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Rob,
    a very intriguing close-up to the structure of the bridge, so well-defined and in good perspective against the soft blue sky. I'm always fascinated by structures like this, which look so graphic and all the features that make it look this way also play a significant role in its statics and solidity. Congratulations and thank you!

    Ciao cara Lisa,
    e' molto difficile affrontare il colpo, le perdite ed i segni profondissimi che ha lasciato il terremoto. E' incredibile come la vita e la mentalita' delle persone comlpite, ma anche degli osservatori, puo' cambiare in pocchi secondi. Speriamo che si trovera' il coraggio di andare avanti. Il gentile signore della tua foto e la "grotta" dorata dei prodotti italiani riscalda il cuore. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buon fine settimana,
