    Hello Roland,
    I think the young persons had their mobile phones temporarily in their pockets. But I agree we usually see it the other way around. Even elderly people sometimes become addicted to the phones. He is placed very well in the shade where we only see his silhouette with his hands in a very revealing position. A well spotted moment and appropriately converted to B&W.

    Hello Kari,
    Yes, she is prettier than most cows but has a hairstyle like a modern football player. Probably no tattoos, but a chip in her ear. A very nice portrait kind of photo with perfectly managed light and sharpness and a suitably fine green background.
    Best wishes,

    Hello Silvio,
    A splendid view with a fine balance between the mainly pink lower half and the green upper half. I also like the hazy view of the village on the distant hill and the tree to the left, just at the border between pink and green.

    Hello Daniel,
    A very well proportioned composition. The palace would need some restoration but it still has a lot of charm and fine details. You captured the rough texture of the brick wall very nicely.

    Hello Serge,
    It's a good composition of the person standing alone in the large square in front of the beautiful buildings. I get the impression that the processing of the clouds is slightly overdone.

    Hello Malgo,
    Three fine photo from one of the towers we have both climbed. Of course I enjoy photos from Vilnius, my personal clear favourite among the Baltic capitals. My strongest memory from the Gediminas Tower is a woman talking in her mobile phone. I heard her loud voice as I was walking up the hill to the tower. She was standing just by the entrance. Then I saw the inside of the tower carefully, climbed to the top and heard her talking from below. When I left after maybe half an hour she was still standing there, talking loudly. I think I spent my time better.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Rob,
    There is a very nice portrait of the tall, handsome man standing next to the white sculpture. It's an amusing photo with many more interesting features seen inside and outside the frame inside the frame. You used the opportunity provided by the mirror very cleverly.

    Hello John,
    Your description of the living statue's graceful moves, also shown on Bev's workshop, makes this performer far more interesting than the average similar street artist. Her dress also raises her above the crowd. Malgo made a good comparison with Meissen porcelain. The dark background may have required some PP work but is really perfect. But imagine how perfect she would have been if the little dog had been real and taught to keep still for hours. But i suppose no dog would accept to be covered with golden paint.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    A beautiful forest scenery with the river flowing through it. I like the contrasts of the dark stems and the sunny spots here and there between the trees. The vertical shape suits this photo perfectly.

    A fine panoramic photo of the impressive fortress. The composition is perfectly divided into three sections of blue, dark red and green. The yellow flowers adorn the grass beautifully.

    Hello Pavle,
    As with most shopping centres the car park dominates the view from outside. The large advertisement sign is another typical feature of such a place. You captured the busy atmosphere of this place very nicely.

    Hello Lars,
    The fine tones of the late evening sky provides a superb background to the highrise buildings and the giant yellow crane. Opening the large version of the photo reveals a lot of details along the busy quay. The large version also shows the high quality of the photo.

    A fine composition with lovely tones of green, some almost yellow and others almost blue. The bench is well placed and is a very nicely included element which creates a good focal-point beside the stunning turquoise pond.

    Hello Ryszard,
    It's quite easy to identify this, but the effect of seeing the restaurant from above is still so surprising and amusing. The small bright objects and the green walls provided a very smart and attractive composition. The title is good too. I have often felt I needed something like that for many photos. ;-)

    The lines of the seats have a wonderful graphical effect, which you have underscored with the conversion to black & white. The two persons provide some life to the view. After all, this was made for people. The photo is well balanced and has a fine greyscale.

    Hello Jean,
    This is a very nice view across the lake to the town clinging to the rocks below the steep mountain. It's a dramatic setting and you have used the ends of two piers nicely to frame the view. The light is good and this is one of those cases where the good sharpness is much more evident in the larger beta version.
