    Bonjour Nicou,
    this is a wonderful find in the smooth landscape, you made the most of it with your inspired composition and creative colour management. I like very much the intensity of the green colour in the foreground, and how the rock stands out and is juxtaposed to the fading shore in the distance. The harmony of the cold tones is superb and affects the atmosphere in such an intriguing way. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely weekend,

    Hola Angel,
    this house really has a unique character, its outside features look intriguing and it would also be interesting to see what its interior looks like. I like how it fits in the tight vertical frame and how its details and colours are the only concern of the viewer. The colour of the sky looks a bit strange but all the other colours are lovely. You had to deal with very challenging lighting contrasts and did an effective work. The red tones provide joyful contrasts. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely weekend,

    Bonjour Magaly,
    your vantage point and composition are excellent. You provided a solid frame and foreground that also adds depth and colour balance. We can concentrate on the clear and interesting view of the town, enjoy the details, the colours and the reflections. I like very much the vividness of the colours in such a mild and moody light. Your work with the light is great, you created an appealing romantic atmosphere. Congratulations and thank you!

    this is a wonderful place, revered for its beauty. I like very much the simplicity, balance and depth of your composition, There's a delightful balance of both natural features and colours.

    Ciao Carlo,
    sei riuscito di mettere in valore la pompa antica, sia con la prospettiva imponente che hai scelto che con i superbi dettagli e i forti colori. Sicuramente l' elliminazione e' stata un gran intervento, non c' e' nessun disturbo intorno al soggetto principale, solo un contesto grafico, significativo e piacevole. Superba la nitidezza e la qualita' di luce e colori. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buon fine settimana,

    Hello Noel,
    this photo is so attractive and interesting and possesses all the qualities of a great postcard. The contrasting colours are eye-catching and inviting, the huge cathedral is presented from an excellent perspective that ensures a very appealing backdrop and the inclusion of an eloquent context. The details and the light falling on the elaborate fašade are marvelous too. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    this picture looks like such a spontaneous and fast capture, very close to the human subject, very dynamic and with a wide and interesting background that impresses the viewer. I would consider this photo a portrait because the lady attracts our attention instantly, has a very interesting expression and her hands are so well photographed too. The colours are wonderful and the atmosphere feels surprisingly intimate. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonsoir Serge,
    although we can't see the whole of the firework synthesis in the sky, this picture appeals to me much due to the excellent definition of the luminous lines and, of course, the reflection. I spent most of my viewing time looking at the reflection and admiring its definition. I also like the sharp colourful details of the setting as well as the pureness and density of the black area. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely evening,

    Hello Gerrit,
    the landscape you are presenting is very lovely. You captured its fresh, natural colours very aptly and the shadows travelling over it make it even more fascinating. Excellent depth and clarity make this vast scenery so inviting. There are a lot of fine details that entice our glance to approach and linger. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Daniel,
    I like very much the graphism of your photo, an original composition that describes the architecture and also plays with its shapes and colours. The textures are interesting and vivid, the play of light makes this tight aerial view even more intriguing and attractive. Congratulations and thank you!

    Ciao Silvio,
    uno scenario interessante, assomiglia a quelli trovati nella tua citta' ma e' piu' moderno. Mi piace molto il tuo punto di vista e la prospettiva che hai creato per lo sguardo dello spettatore. L' illuminazione e' magnifica, hai ritenuto la chiarezza e la consistenza della veduta molto abilmente. E' superbo il modo in cui hai usato la luce e l' ombra, come forme dinamiche e grafiche che si complementano. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buona serata,

    Hello dear Ali,
    I like very much the girl's proud and intense glance towards the lens, her expression is very intriguing. She seems about to react in some way, speak or move, but what she did the next moment will remain a mystery. I like her harmonious chromatic integration to the setting as well as the contrast between her youth and the old house which also hides a lot from us. Very good composition with fine perspective, superb sharpness and colour management. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Ike,
    although the colours aren't very eye-catching but rather soft and harmonious, your composition with all these wiggly abstract patterns is so vibrant and intriguing. There are so many patterns in your frame and they interact in a fascinating way. The ropes are very well placed, fine, contrasting elements. A rich image, pleasing and interesting to watch. Congratulations and thank you!
