    Ciao Luciano,
    com' e' brillante questa foto, il vigore della luce e dei colori rende il villaggio ancora piu' delizioso ed attraente. La tua composizione e' semplice ed elegante. Mi piace molto come hai introdotto degli elementi e colori interessanti in primo piano senza che la vista maritima perdi il suo fascino o il suo significato. Dettagli e tesstiture sono gratificanti e c' e' una discretta qualita' grafica. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buona serata,

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    a very suggestive morning view of this timeless place. What we see gives us an interesting glimpse of the historic and cultural character of this place and of daily life there. I like very much the serene atmosphere and the effect of the light on the warm colours. The mist looks like a veil that's being lifted slowly, creating a sense of anticipation. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Hello Gerrit,
    both the location of this lone house and the view from there are fascinating. This is an isolated, mysterious and very attractive place, it's great that your adventurous bike trip brought you there and now we are able to enjoy this discovery of yours too. Your composition is fine, depth and textures have been rendered effectively. The subtle highlights and the rich colours are very lovely too. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hello Ray,
    the landscape is marvelous, the rock formations are majestic. I love the smooth lighting variations in your photo, they give a stunning sense of fluidity to the massive rocks. I also like the contrast of the shady foreground, the suggestive textures and the colours. The atmosphere is awesome. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello dear Mesut,
    a delightful scene that could have been captured at Syntagma Square in Athens as well. I like your simple and effective composition and the way the little girl stands out and brightens up the frame. I also like the naturalness of this scene, the clarity despite the movement and, above all, the little girl's delighted expression. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Gert,
    a valuable description of Maimana's cityscape in 1973, I think that this scene could be even older. I like very much the deep view along this wide avenue, the layout points to the elegant building in a quiet but effective way. I like the people's movement and natural attitudes, the scene looks so vivid in this photo too. I wonder what these people thought about their city, if they could make any comparison with other places and if they were happy there. The colours are superb and the light absolutely mesmerizing. Congratulations and thank you!

    Καλησπέρα Δάνο,
    μια θέα πραγματικά απολαυστική, θα μπορούσα να την παρατηρώ για ώρες. Εκτός από τη συναρπαστική αίσθηση του ύψους και το τοπίο, είναι πολύ ευχάριστο το λαμπερό φως και τα ζωηρά χρώματα. Θαυμάσια σύνθεση με το κάδρο προσεκτικά προσαρμοσμένο στο τοπίο, εξαιρετική η απόδοση των χρωμάτων. Ο κόσμος στην παραλία περνάει όμορφες και ξέγνοιαστες στιγμές όμως και το σημείο στο οποίο μας έφερες είναι καταπληκτικό. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
    Να είσαι καλά, καλό σου βράδυ,
    Ουρανία

    Ciao Silvio,
    credo che la monocromia risulta in nuovi approcci e che la tua citta' ti offrira' tantissime occasioni di utilizzarla come maniera di descrizione ed espressione. Mi piace molto questa composizione dove la prospettiva accattiva l'attenzione e fa' voglia di proseguire dentro lo scenario misterioso. La statua e' molto intrigante, un elemento sorpredente a questo posto. Mi piacciono anche le tessiture e la morbidezza delle ombre. Complimenti e grazie!

    Hello Burak,
    an interesting point of view that combines the wonderful landmark with a scene of human interest. Your picture is maybe a little dark but has good clarity through the scenery. It's intriguing that the young photographer has turned his back to the tower, maybe he's taking a selfie. I like the sky and the statue quietly watching over the setting. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonjour Laurent,
    you came across a very attractive scene and managed to capture it effectively and in an interesting context too. The load is very imposing with its shape, dimensions and texture, it really dominates the tight frame. The truck looks like a float with the four people sitting symmetrically at its front:) It's fascinating that we can't see any of the people's faces. An intriguing slice of life. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Paul,
    the title of your picture is great, it increases our interest in this wild natural scenery and makes it look like a real challenge. The depth and the scale conveyed by your composition are intriguing, it's wonderful that you chose a vertical frame for this scene, to make height more effective too and to include as much of the rugged landscape as possible. You handled the lighting contrasts superbly and they look pleasantly smooth. The natural colours are very delightful as well. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Paja,
    an interesting collection of scenes from the annual dog show in Cupriji. The basketball court was very busy and buzzing that day, the weather was delightfully mild and sunny and the people who gathered there surely had a good time sharing their love of dogs and enjoying the atmosphere. Your pictures are deep, clear and well balanced, they are vivid and have fine natural colours. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Bev,
    I like your presentation of this Cornish town very much. The diagonal of the slope crosses the frame elegantly, the light gives a very attractive aspect to the coastal town and you have captured its general character and details so effectively. The heavy, grey sky makes a great backdrop, the mild sunshine is even more delightful in contrast with it. The foreground gives us depth and scale and it's interesting to watch the people, fully dressed but eager to enjoy the beach. I love the moody colours. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Boa,
    your composition is excellent and the colours work very well in its favour. There aren't any distractions at all so the scene and the interaction between the faces in the poster and the lady walking by can get our full attention. The poster has a captivating effect. Although the lady is interested in it, she breaks the spell by continuing her quick pace, I wonder what she's thinking. Congratulations and thank you!
