    Hi Serghei,
    you have mentioned that your friend was driving you through his favourite parts of Cyprus. So far, with those two photos I have seen from you now, I am a bit worried that he may have showed you a subtly distorted view of this beautiful island :)

    Nicosia was a very particular place to visit and I have really enjoyed it. I just regret that I didn't stay there longer but it was so hot!

    Nice composition with the decorative element in the back and the ladies in traditional clothes in the centre of attention. The pigeons add another lovely touch too.
    Very well spotted!!

    Ciao Lisa,
    wonderful wild life photography. It has quite a decent quality. In the situations like this one has to react quite fast with whatever is available. I am usually very slow: landscapes are too dynamic for me to capture :)
    The main reason I take photos is because exactly they are helping myself to refresh memories of best times of my life: being outdoor with my wife in beautiful places. And it works out quite well: I like browsing though my old photos. The quality is important but the memories so much more.
    I have a feeling that this year will be better than the previous one...
    Great work!

    Hi Ney,
    nice street scene, I like the variety of means of transport in one shot.
    The colors make it really eye catching with the sky so attractive.
    Very well seen and captured,

    Hi Ney,
    I had the satisfaction of being in Sao Paulo but only at the airport on my way to Buenos. I have tried to take some photos from the plane to mark Brazil on my map of countries photographed but my photos were not nearly as good as yours. I like very much the clarity and sharpness of your plane photos. Plus of course you know the area so you can tell which city it is.
    Lovely reportage,

    Ciao Carlo,
    very well spotted a "washing day" scene. The house seems to be quite aged which is always attractive for a photographer. The window had quite characteristic Mediterranean style. The two towels add a humorous aspect.
    Very well done!!

    Ciao Silvio,
    breath taking view! I like very much the multitude of the hills, there are so many layers here. The fog brings in a mystical atmosphere and a decorative aspect: it looks a bit as a work of artist. Great contrast of fragments which are clear and sharp with those which are covered in fog.
    Very impressive!!

    Hola Sergio,
    what a beautiful structure. So very impressive and I have never heard about it before!
    The cathedral is so rich and elegant. You took the picture from a very interesting angle which allows us to appreciate the amazing location of the church. The archway entrance below adds a surprising geometrical element here. Great variety of textures all across the frame.
    Captured in a wonderful light as well.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Mesut,
    beautiful sunset photograph. Not only you have amazing light and colors of the nature but also you have taken the photo at a unique location. The dome seems quite extraordinary and it is set against a wonderful panorama in the distance. There seems to be slight fog hanging over ground in the distance which adds a feeling of mystery here. It feels for me more like an illustration for a fairy tale than an actual photo.
    Excellent work!!

    Hi Paul,
    I cannot find any words to describe my admiration for this photo.
    The colors of the sunset are breath taking. Excellent exposition, everything is just perfect.
    Great use of the silhouettes: people of course, palm trees and the little island on the horizon. They seem to be perfectly thought through and placed in the optimal positions in the frame. Sky is amazing, it includes as well some blue fragments which makes it feel even more varied and eye catching.
    Now I feel finally convinced that I want to visit Colombia :)
    Spectacular scene!

    Bonsoir Nicolas,
    fantastic capture! Very well spotted! The snow created a very unusual setting here, quite an extraordinary effect. Set against the snow we see two contrasting elements: a walker and a train in motion. Train is well lit meaning it must be quite dark outside. That means your exposition must have been just perfect.
    I like how you have placed the elements in the frame, it makes us feel a space between them. And the train brings in a feeling of warmth as well.
    Fantastic idea!

    Hi Costantino,
    lovely combination of the winter scenery in the foreground and the sea view further in the distance. Fantastic point of view! Nice that you have included the pink colored house in the foreground, they must have an amazing view from their windows!
    The mountains on the horizon provide a spectacular panorama.
    Very well done!!

    Bonsoir Christiane,
    this is so beautiful! I like very much this love little church, in spite of the shade we can appreciate all the details of its charming architecture. You have placed it pleasantly off the centre which resulted in the attractive geometry. I like the diagonal lines made by the light passing between the trees -they seem to be pointing towards the church. The snow is of course a fantastic decorative element here, everything is so white and clean. Especially the snow covered tree branches and the bench work nicely. The bench balances well the composition and seems to invite for a rest. Great blue color of the sky is a wonderful finish for the scene.
    It is spectacular!

    Hello György,
    Finding matching colours is one of the essentials of street photography. She is certainly bright enough on her own, but the connection with the background makes her priceless. There are also many other small details that catch my eyes. This photo fits a certain famous category perfectly.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Roland,
    A graphically excellent composition in B&W. The shadows of trees in the snow are very eye-catching. The fence provides a strong horizontal accent opposed by the well placed tree.

    A fine photo with a strong sense of fast movement. I like the blue, red and grey areas surrounding the boat. These sections are perfectly balanced against each other according to the rule of thirds.

    Hello Craig,
    This could also have been called The Domino Game. It seems that if you would push hard enough on the white building at the top it could overturn every other building all the way downhill. A terrible thought but these buildings really look lined up like domino pieces. It's a very nice view made less monotonous by the different colors. Superb colors and light, but I always take that for granted when you were the photographer.
    Best wishes,
    Gert
