    Hello Gert,
    I like this picture very much, sharing -perhaps- the curiosity and wonder I see in the little boy's expression. I thought that you chose this title because you weren't able to discern which lady was the mother but the story in your note has great interest too. I wish things were different. Every part of your composition is attractive and interesting in its own merit, you brought them all together superbly with this tight composition. I love the sunshine and the colours and can't help trying to imagine the ladies' aspects, characters and thoughts under their burqas. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely evening,

    Hello Aleksander,
    I like very much how you assumed a close but discreet point of view and achieved a well balanced and comprehensive arrangement in your frame. You managed perspective and space superbly, clarity and colour definition are bold and effective, adding graphical quality to this daily life scenery. The light is very strong and remarkably clear, it explains very well the aspect and activities of the people. Congratulations and thank you! What a striking contrast to your winter pictures!
    All the best, have a lovely evening,

    Bonjour Serge,
    this is a very lovely photo, offering us a deep and detailed view to the unique cityscape. A classic view, balanced within the frame very nicely, the perspectives draw us into the cityscape, even beyond the bridge. You managed the sidelight in a remarkable way bringing out the special charm of the colours and the atmosphere at this particular hour of the day. A fine cloudscape and attractive reflections complete the viewer's delight. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely day,

    Hello John,
    moving backwards, I've reached halfway your long career on TE and the point where you decided to post only a picture a week:) For your anniversary you had chosen a photo that's both elegant and spectacular, with fine perspectives and symmetry, lovely architecture, very agreeable light and human presence. The light and the colours have a wonderful mildness and the buzzing setting on the ground looks neat and peaceful. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Stephen,
    a very attractive building, the clear and solemn symmetrical lines are gracefully combined with elaborate decorative patterns. I like very much the perspective you chose to include the greater part of the façade and offer us close look at the details. The blue sky is a delightful, contrasting area. There's excellent clarity, in spite of the strong light that affects the colour contrasts. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely day,

    Καλημέρα Κωνσταντίνε,
    μου αρέσει πολύ αυτή η διαφορετική παρουσίαση του ψαρολίμανου, με τις βάρκες, τις ελκυστικές λεπτομέρειες και τα λαμπερά χρώματά τους να μας οδηγούν μέχρι την πόλη. Η τόσο στενή συσχέτιση των ψαροκάικων με τις πολυκατοικίες μου φαίνεται πολύ πρωτότυπη και ενδιαφέρουσα. Τόσο η προοπτική όσο και τα χρώματα δημιουργούν μια ευχάριστα δυναμική εντύπωση. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
    Να είσαι καλά, καλή σου μέρα,
    Ουρανία

    Hello Paja,
    a lovely view of the sugar factory within a comprehensive and colourful context. This panoramic frame is elegantly composed and gives us a rewarding view as far as depth, details and colours are concerned. I like very much the sharpness all the way to the imposing chimney and how a rich succession of areas and elements can be followed by the viewer in an effortless and pleasant way. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello dear Ali,
    lovely layout of colours and textures across a well considered panoramic frame. The rock formations are attractive and imposing, their textures are clear and interesting, even from this far and comprehensive point of view. The tiny human figures add scale and are very intriguing to watch. Your light and colour management is superb. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello dear Lisa,
    this picture is very beautiful, it's very well composed and the frame is shared by wonderful cold and warm tones, equally soothing and delightful. It's like a yin and yang image, dynamic, well balanced and perfect. This is how life should have been. Even after many days of detailed approaches and analyses, feeling the agony of the relatives and watching the political games, I find it most hard to accept how unimportant the respect of human lives has become in what's considered an advanced part of the world. I think that words are losing their meaning. A thoughtful initiative on your part, thank you!

    Hola Maria querida,
    this scene is delightful, you have created a very attractive composition to show it. The colourful people are very nicely integrated in the scenery and you were lucky the man in the foreground was wearing black and isn't distracting the viewer while they are observing the rest of the scene. I like very much the bold curve that offers us a delightful trip within the frame as well as the strong and well balanced diagonal joining the man and the building. Colours and shadows are bold and attractive too. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Daniel,
    I wouldn't have chosen the rabbit:) but I trust your good opinion about this restaurant, the photo through which you are presenting it is very lovely. A very interesting composition that managed to give us a good glimpse of the restaurant and its atmosphere. The effect of the perspectives and the arrangement of details are very elegant, the shade is clear and pleasant and creates some fine, graphical contrasts with the sunlit parts. Congratulations and thank you!

    Ciao Silvio,
    un aspetto bellissimo della fioritura di quest' anno, hai usato la prospettiva superbamente ed hai giocato con i colori in modo artistico e gradevole. Fantastica la profondita', la descrizione dettagliata in primo piano e poi un colore compatto e molto dinamico che ci porta con se. Molto belli anche gli effetti delle diagonali e delle ombre. La luce e' deliziosa ed aggiunge interesse. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buona giornata,

    Bonjour Cricri,
    a wonderful point of view to the picturesque village and the surrounding landscape. Your composition is great as the dark, mountainous vegetation in the foreground opens up to the very deep and interesting view ahead. Vegetation, town, mountains and sky are in excellent balance within your frame. Again, the lighting and the colours evoke mystery, a quality that I have associated with this beautiful island. Congratulations and thank you!
