    a fine graphical image, a natural scene that's relaxing and delightful. I like your minimal composition as well as the coexistence of symmetry and dynamism. You used light and contrast effectively, the colours are brilliant. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Jose,
    I like very much this sequel to the story of your previous photo. The composition is almost the same, the setting is neat and graphic and has wonderful contrasting colours like in your other picture. But here's a twist in the story and the familiar scenery is now full of intensity. You captured the lady's reaction with excellent timing, your pictures would look marvelous placed side by side. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely evening,

    Hello John,
    this picture is captivating, the unusual character of the natural scenery, the extraordinary colours and the presence of the boat make it very interesting. The boat is such a strong focal point, it has no engine or oars and looks neat and new, coming in contrast with the timeless, rugged scenery. The interaction between cold and warm colours is very intriguing too. I think that this scene looks like a metaphor and that it could illustrate a fantasy novel. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely evening,

    Hello Jason,
    the workshop pictures are interesting and useful, giving us a thorough idea of the location but this scene has a very special charm. I like very much the silhouetted foreground against such a deep, bright, detailed and fascinating view. You combined the two parts very aptly, the narrow frame and the shadow give a fine intimate atmosphere whilst the light and the colours ahead are delicious. While observing and admiring the view ahead, I wonder what the other observer thinks about it. He's probably checking out his photos:) Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Paja,
    you chose an effective point of view to include the whole of the bridge and an interesting context around it. We get a rewarding view of the natural setting and an interesting glimpse of the river and the urban part. The view is lovely and we can infer quite a lot about daily life in this area. I like very much the light and the colours of that splendid autumn day. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Gert,
    another vivid scene that allows us to share your impressions from that journey in a very effective way. I like very much the perspective of the road full of goats and also dust and noise I presume. Your point of view is well associated to the scene, I feel like I have just stepped to the side of the road to watch the herd pass. I also like the contact with the little shepherd. There's superb depth, textures, light and colours, they all look genuine. I also enjoy very much the "picture" described in your note where everyone was praying and you were taking photos:) Congratulations and thank you! "Dots of women" is an extraordinary sight in this series:)
    All the best, have a good night,

    Ciao Silvio,
    questa immagine e' molto bella ed atmosferica, l' ho vista anche a Leros l' altro ieri:) Mo piace molto la luce morbida ed i colori di una sera tranquila in campagna. Lo sfuocato crea un' impressione di profondita', soprattutto nel cielo e la nuova luna spicca discretta, nitida e accattivante. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buona notte,

    Hello dear Ali,
    I find this picture very interesting because its foreground and background are equally clear, rich and interesting, juxtaposed and combined in an attractive way. I like very much the sense of movement in the foreground and it's great that the girl on the right is looking towards the other side and leads us to do the same. You captured fine natural colours and excellent details. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Swapan,
    this area looks so remote and mysterious, it offers awesome natural views and maybe makes the visitor see things under a new perspective. I like this simple, panoramic composition of layers, when we look closer we realize how vast this scenery really is. The colours are wonderful, I love the intensity and clarity of the whites. Congratulations and thank you!

    a lovely night picture, it's so attractive and mysterious at the same time. The colourful luminous patterns are delicious, I like very much the variety of colours and the deep, dark backdrop that sets them off. A fascinating sight. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hola Angel,
    this urban setting is very elegant and well preserved, it has the charm of the old days. You composed this view very well, it's broad and has great depth. The light is overwhelming and reflects on all the buildings around the square. The scenery is as bright as it gets and at the same time has stunning details all over. The colours make some very attractive contrasts. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello John,
    a wonderful natural scenery, you are offering us an intimate view in this full frame, the play of light and the colours are superb, the forest looks like a peaceful refuge. The shady areas provide balance and contrast, the rays invading the frame from the background and reaching up to the nearest foreground make a captivating effect. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Pedro,
    an attractive, deep and dynamic view into this picturesque neighbourhood, it looks like a timeless place that is, however, the setting of modern daily life. Although the lighting conditions were quite challenging, you achieved remarkable clarity and excellent colours. The cars didn't disturb the balance of your composition, it was a good thing that their colours matched those of the scenery so well. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Burak,
    a daily life scene that's delightful and interesting, I like the concentration and concern of the children, you captured a critical moment of their effort to navigate their cute sailboat. The juxtaposition with the grownups is very effective and, in spite of the tight composition, we get a sense of the grandeur of the place too. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    it's a stunning portrait again, you captured a captivating expression and the colours are very attractive as well. I like very much how everything works and becomes important in your tight frame: the eyes, the tilt of the head, the questioning look, the thanaka paste, the wrinkles. All these, supported by the colours create much intensity. And then there's the expressive little hand that expands the story. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Ana,
    a daily life image that's simple but very attractive and suggestive. The colour of the pink sari is irresistible, I like very much how you enhanced the contrast without causing the water to lose its fine texture. The connection between the lady and the dog is very intriguing, are they friends, friends to be or casual acquaintances? I also like the effect of movement coming both from the lady's step and from the water. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,
