    Hello Benny,
    Interesting close-up where the fascinating pattern created with glass and steel gets the full attention. The reflected sun is a fine eye-catcher.

    Ciao Silvio,
    fantastic composition which is a great evidence for the fact that we look up not frequently enough! I like the resulting geometry. The blue sky with a subtle touch of clouds makes of course a huge difference.
    The architecture is so elegant and you have presented it in a very creative way.
    Excellent composition!

    Hi Bev,
    nice capture of this monument set against an attractive architecture and lovely sky at the back.
    We had great weather last weekend -optimal for beach so this weekend I am glad to have a slightly worse weather to be able to catch up with all jobs to do at home.
    Your picture here encourages me to re-visit Edinburgh, there seem to be so many spots which I have either missed or did not spend enough time around.
    Excellent highest quality presentation!

    wow, prawie tak piekne jak Pieniny!
    :)

    Niesamowite miejsce, bardzo lubie takie niezwykle krajobrazy ale tez juz sobie wyobrazam ze moja corka by sie tam nudzila...
    Poza tym nie widzialem jeszcze tych podstawowych najbardziej turystycznych miejsc w Chinach wiec jesli kiedys bede mial okazje jechac to zaczne od Wielkiego Muru i Pekinu czy Szanghaju...
    Swietny punkt widzenia: wyglada na to ze z wagoniku kolejki.
    Jestem niestety do tylu z zagladaniem na TE :(
    Pozdrawiam serdecznie,

    Hi Pavle,
    lovely reportage from a construction site. Interesting subject of the daily life selected.
    The foreground focused on the red ground adds nice color to the scene. It complements well the blue sky.
    Very well spotted,

    Hello Serge,
    The portrait of Leonard Cohen is wonderfully made, and it's a great idea to put it on such a large wall where many people can see it. It certainly makes that empty wall a whole lot nicer. It's a straightforward photo, but there was no need for any spectacular angle. It's well exposed, with good colours, and that is all that matters in this case.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Pierre,
    A plain but very attractive photo of brown, dark blue and light blue. I like the simplicity of these three elements, and the seagulls are fine details providing life. You exposed the photo well and the colours are nicely saturated.

    Hello Angel,
    A very pleasant vie of the small port and the pretty building along the waterfront. Surely this nice place will offer a lot of photo opportunities. In spite of the overcast sky the light and colours are superb.

    Helo György,
    This is also a very well taken photo with excellently handled light and great sharpness. What a pity that young men marching at night carrying torches and wearing brown uniforms give me very mixed feelings. I hope this has nothing to do with Jobbik. And not sponsored by the government?
    Best wishes,

    Hello Silvio,
    A magnificent view of the flat scenery and with the hang-glider as a perfect foreground. It looks quite dramatic as the "plane" seems to be about to take off. The sail is a wonderful bright object. In the distance I see another red sail. It is a well taken photo from a good POV and it almost gives me vertigo.

    Hello Malgo,
    A bright and colourful photo from the temple, and finally some people too ;-). There are lots of amazing details and it's interesting to watch the people praying. The light is very well managed and the sharpness is fantastic. The wooden details in the lower part are slightly disturbing. I made a WS where I cloned and cropped the photo, but I can't post it because I already made two workshops today for my own photo, so I'll send it to you in a mail.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Ike,
    This was a good angle for a fine photo of the castle. It is a minor point, but I think you were lucky to find the red van standing there. It is not a regular part of the view but it adds a bright spot of a kind which at least I appreciate.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Bev,
    Both photos are beautiful and well composed. Especially this one is very nicely framed and well cropped. There is a fine view of the inner courtyard through the white vault. Of course the two ladies play an important role for the composition. I would imagine that exposure could be tricky with these white walls and the strong light but you handled that problem marvellously well. The design of this church and the white walls actually make me think of a mosque in North Africa or the Middle East rather than a church in southern Europe.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Nicolas,
    A very elegant composition. The different colours of the fields balance each other perfectly and the many diagonals create a beautiful pattern. The cows in the upper part add a fine element of life to the photo. The picture has a very pleasant mildness.

    Hello Paul,
    Three very attractive photos, all of which could have been main uploads. This one has the strongest focus on just one person, facing us, and is the "cleanest" composition of the three. I am deeply impressed that you saved the heads of all the persons in the background. Even the man on the bench avoided a haircut. I find it very difficult to notice such background details when I am busy with the object in the foreground. Maybe you were just lucky.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Pavle,
    The roof and chimney are not in the best condition but have a great beauty anyway. I like the well captured texture of the bricks and the slightly undulating roof. The green tree makes a wonderful contrast.
