    Hello Sergio,
    There is probably a great view from the top of the rock, but 740 steps sounds very much. The view from below is just as good. It's a spectacular rock and the surroundings are beautiful.

    Hello Benny,
    It's a fine composition from above. It looks like an area where you have to watch your step. I like the strong diagonal and the distinctly coloured areas.

    Hello Paul,
    Windows really provide many opportunities for nice compositions. Even I posted some, years ago, before I found my home among the nothing specials. This one has very nice colours and design.

    Hello Chris,
    This must be the most famous street corner in all of Albania. It's hard to resist for any photographer with such nice buildings and background view.

    This looks like a nice area. How come you didn't go there before? I have rarely seen such photogenic garbage cans before ;-).

    Hello Malgo,
    Great art in a beautiful location with fine light. A very good composition.
    Baku is a very big city with many very big buildings from Soviet days and many newer ones. There is not a lot really worth seeing but it's a good place for a few days. The Flame towers are great from anywhere at any time. Almost worth the entire journey.

    Hello Luciano,
    I thought I had the copyright for small talk, but all right, you can have it for free ;-).
    This also suits the "nothing special" theme well: two guys talking on the beach, nice colours, nice waves and a quiet atmosphere.

    Hello György,
    There is a beautiful light in this photo and very fine tones on the soft shapes of the hill. The tall reeds make a fine foreground. Didn't Iringo find any whisky that day? Next time lucky.

    Bonsoir Christiane,
    lovely spot, it reminds me the Hollywood Sign in Los Angeles. It is so nicely framed here with a variety of desert plants, I recognize some of them from my trip to American Southwest.
    I like very much desert landscapes, I would love to get back there again sometime.
    Lovely reportage,

    Hola Luis,
    I know I wrote it already but this was such a fruitful trip photographically!! Great idea! You have seen so much -so many countries and cities.
    I have been to Copenhagen twice but don't have good photos because it was in the pre digital times.
    Fantastic picture here with this characteristic silhouette of the city hall set against a spectacular sky.
    Amazing final effect! You have been in a great spot at the perfect timing and you have so well used the opportunity,
    excellent work!!

    Hi Pavle,
    nice scene, good illustration that the nature may be so beautiful even along a street. In fact the street elements like the fence with red brick or the lamp they are adding a lovely touch here.
    Very nice colors especially the purple flowers make it feel beautiful,

    Hi Chris,
    what a beautiful spot! Fantastic reportage from this underrepresented on TE country. I even thought about going for holidays to Corfu which would give me a chance for a trip to Albania :)

    Great scene here, amazing geometry and perfect sky with well saturated colors across the frame.

    Ciao Carlo,
    lovely rural scenery. I like how the green and brown fields meet together. The vegetation adds a very decorative touch: on one hand the soft bushes in the foreground on another the sharp trees on the horizon.
    beautiful work, well spotted!!

    Bonsoir Nicolas,
    very impressive scene! I like the multiple layers of composition here with the vineyard making a charming foreground the fog a central part and the panorama of the mountains at the sunset the uppermost layer.
    The orange hot feeling sky contrasts interestingly with the cold earth at the bottom.
    Excellent photography!

    Ciao Lisa,
    I love deserts, maybe because they are so different from everything I am used to.
    Lovely pattern well spotted, well giving away the essence of the desert.

    I have written an answer to your comment, shortly speaking I agree completely with your critical view on the church but nevertheless I see a lot of beauty in religious structures. Even though people are distorting the message from God or are using it to commit crimes, beautiful temples of all sorts or spectacular nature makes me somehow want to pray.

    Great desert photography,

    Hi Sasha,
    in spite of a bad weather day you have exposed it so well that it is truly eye catching. I like very much the variety of vegetation here with the vineyard making a charming foreground but also the blooming trees and other freshly green trees making a lovely mosaic here.
    Beautiful natural landscape, very well seen and captured,

    Hi Bev,
    fantastic point of view indeed. I did struggle a lot to show it in an interesting way. This is a very original composition with the well selected foreground.
    Not only the thick trees but also the interesting plant at the bottom part: it all frames the minster attractively.
    I liked the cathedral very much and just regret not spending enough time over there.
    Great work!!

    Hi Ike,
    I was tempted to show a photo from the exactly same point of view but then I decided to go for the Nobel Prize instead. Lovely hall, with the great geometry, looking great with the central symmetry take.
    I like very much this spot as an option for a bad weather in Edinburgh :)
    Great reportage,
