    Bonjour Clodo,
    this picture is graphically attractive and describes the scene in an immediate and rewarding way. I like very much the angle and presence of the plane, it's a strong character of the story, seemingly staring back. The definition of the silhouettes is superb, we can read different attitudes in them too. You managed the monochromatic impression and the contrast very effectively. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely day,

    Bonjour Cricri,
    it's great to have another glimpse of the magnificent church combined with an update on the aspect Paris has assumed as a host to Euro 2016. I like the balance and elegance of your composition, the upward perspective engages the viewer and the details and colours are most rewarding. The balls stand out in a playful way. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonjour Nicou,
    I like very much how you have composed this picture to show the interesting location of the large buildings in this vast and desolate landscape, there are very interesting details and textures all over and you have created a fascinating atmosphere too. I like the highlights and the interplay of warm tones and shadows. The buildings look like toys from this distance. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Lars,
    you chose a great point of view for this presentation, adding a wonderful perspective and arranging the essential elements of the scenery in a neat and pleasing way. The Castle stands out for its position, style and colour, your picture has amazing clarity and the minor elements are well defined and interesting too. It's great that you retained so much detail and natural colours around the bright castle. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Will,
    I like very much this picture for its graphic structure based on light and shadows, the long perspective and the patterns that tease our glance as we proceed towards the other end. It's interesting to see a person looking back from there. The monochrome is lovely and the greys signify the intensity or absence of light. There's an intimate and pensive mood, enhanced by your note referring to the emperor's attitude towards this place. Congratulations and thank you!

    Ciao Carlo,
    uno scenario eccezionale, visto da un punto di vista davvero comprensivo ed affascinante. Mi piace molto la prospettiva e lo spazio fino al orizzonte, l' aggiunta di profondita' e contrasto attraverso un' altra parte al primo piano, le tessiture naturali ed il meraviglioso aspetto del inarrestabile mare. Complimenti e grazie!

    Hello Neyvan,
    this is a wonderful composition showing part of the rail proceeding from the low border and vanishing into the scenery. I like how you arranged all the important features of the scenery and included a clear and fascinating background as well. You achieved marvellous colours and contrasts, the textures are interesting and it's exciting to spot a paraglider at the top. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great weekend,

    Hola Angel,
    the clouds, the perspective and the way you treated the light and the contrasts, have given the scene a mysterious and dynamic aspect. At the same time, you've achieved great depth and clarity, even in the heavily shaded areas. I like the dicreet highlights on the village and the distant landscape as well as the placement of the tower. A very picturesque scenery. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best,

    Hello Ike,
    although settings, compositions and colours are different, both of your pictures are attractive and interesting and they show the busy character of the market place very effectively. This sounds and looks like a very interesting and colourful place, it's great to have a glimpse through your photos. The daily life scenes, the light and the colours remind me of Greece. You coped with the lighting demands very aptly. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonjour cher Philippe,
    this is a spledid chateau of considerable size and an architectural style that is grandiose and elegant at the same time. I like how we are led towards the chateau and through the arch, how clear and interesting the details are and how vivid and agreeable the colours. The many large windows is a remarkable trait. Congratulations and thank you!

    Ciao Silvio,
    sono molto contenta che sei ritornato a Castelluccio, la luce ed i colori di quest' anno sono davvero ricchi e meravigliosi, il cielo ha aggiunto un magnifico spettacolo e tutto sembra perfetto. Mi piace molto la composizione gratificante e profondissima, le ombre e le tonalita' fredde fanno contrasti interessanti ed atmosferici, le tessiture sono favolose. Complimenti e grazie!

    this is a very interesting scene, you combined daily life and architectural interest effectively and the description is thorough. I like very much the warm colours, the sense of depth and the clear view of the people. Your timing is excellent, you are showing us one of the most important moments of the procession. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello John,
    you chose a superb angle for your composition and framed it excellently. The large, building with the neat, geometrical architecture is well placed, we get a very elegant description of old and modern features and all the perspectives have been arranged effectively. You achieved remarkable clarity all over the scenery, the way you balanced the colours of different qualities and intensities is marvellous. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Malgo,
    the colours in the workshop picture are fresh and agreeable but the treatment you chose for this scene is great. You gave the scene a mysterious and timeless mood, as if it were captured many years ago by an adventurous traveller who took it for their book or journal, but that's what you are doing too:) The three buildings are very intriguing and the light is charming, details and shadows are very clear. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Gert,
    I like both pictures too. Although the frame is different, the setting and even some of the people are the same. The "red men" are irresistible though, not only for the colour but also for the way the counterbalance the red towers diagonally across the frame and for their attitude, surveying the scene. I enjoy very much the clear details, the neat composition, the warm tones and the sense of movement. I also like the smile in the middle of this scene. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Rob,
    I like very much this scene which conveys an easy and agreeable atmosphere of leisure, even if the gentlemen are practicing hard for the games. The scene has been captured from an interesting angle and the background sets if off. The warm colours are vivid and lovely, they indicate a warm day and the heat is part of the story. It's amusing to see the three carrying the truck watch the other three discussing. Congratulations and thank you!

    Ciao Luciano,
    mi piace molto questa scena che hai esaltato in una composizione semplice ed elegante. E' una scena tenera e senza tempo, i frati non posano ma li vediamo procedere lentamente in un "rituale" quotidiano. Chi sa' che pensieri condividono durante il loro cammino quotidiano. Mi picciono molto le tonalita' dolci ed i dettagli discretti, e' bello che possiamo vedere anche la porta dove si diringono. Ottimo lavoro, complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buona serata,
