    Hello John,
    I'm not tired at all of this series of photos and hope it continues. I like your work very much and think it can teach us a lot about settings and composition, as you approached each subject from the angle that could best enhance its character and you managed to introduce interesting stories in your frames too. It's great to be able to see so much of vehicle, a glimpse of the setting and a scene of an intriguing convesration in a tight square frame. You managed perspective, clarity and colours excellently, the vehicle is full of character and the people stand there naturally, not distorted by the wide lens at all. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hello Noel,
    that's great luck, to be able to enjoy the amazing view, a delicious ice-cream and your photography there. I like very much this scene and the way you composed it, the foreground is narrow but carries much interest and anchors the whole scene. The view beyond is so vast, clear and fascinating, the clouds are a great treat too. I like the lighting variations and the well-defined colours. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Ciao Silvio,
    le torri sembrano molto imponenti in questa composizione serrata, sono alti, solidi e brillanti al sole. Mi piace molto la nitidezza delle tessiture che aggiunge molto al loro carattere affascinante. I colori sono vibranti ed attraenti, il cielo offre ottimo contrasto con le sue forme e tonalita' diverse. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buona serata,

    Hello Craig,
    the marina outcrop is surely extraordinary, I like the zig zag perspectives in the workshop but think there's more fascination for me in the main post, where you have added more strong perspectives in the foreground and the quiet seaside city in the distance. The textures and the colours are brilliant, they immediately create a dramatic mood. The town looks so neat and cozy after this introduction, the rugged walls seem to defend it. I also like how the clouds point at it. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Hello Gy,
    perhaps it's the "artificial" feel of the setting and the effect of the expired film's colours that make this look like a genuinely old photo, depicting a quiet daily life with a lot of action hidden behind the walls. I like very much this composition that shows the building very well but also adds life with the insertion of the people. The children add reference instantly and prove Gert's point on the role of people in photos beyond doubt. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hello Krzysztof,
    I like the role of the dynamic angles in this tight composition, you created an effective set of perspectives too. I like the sharp and natural textures, the attractive, bold colours of the rural scenery and how inviting it looks. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hola Angel,
    you have lighted this scene and smoothed out the contrast in a superb way. While the colours are still vivid and attractive and their contrasts effective, you also managed to retain stunning clarity all over. The picturesque details of the setting are interesting and the lady that's just passed by adds liveliness and dynamism. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great afternoon,

    Hello Lars,
    there's a stylish grandeur in the buildings of Old Quebec and I like very much the angles you have chosen in order to present it. You arranged the perspectives of this composition in an excellent way, the viewer's glance travels smoothly all over the scenery and finds interesting details in every spot. The light is lovely and contrasts are great. I like how the shadows set off the bright areas and colours. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hello Stephen,
    the shapes, the street and the glimpse of the neighbouring building in the background, make it easy to believe that the whole setting is real and then enjoy the fine perspectives and visual tricks of the tromp d'oeil. I like very much the way you handled exposure, the colours of the setting match well with those of the sky and make the tromp d' oeil even more effective. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Ike,
    you made sure that your picture would be very clear and detailed so that we can see all three tractors. They are interesting machines, now sitting in the peaceful garden like retired workers who still hang out at the place where they spent their days. The colours are natural and pleasing. Congratulations and thank you! I hope that your PC will soon be ok.

    Hello Paul,
    I appreciate very much your choosing Colombia as a travelling destination, making an effort to know it thoroughly and bringing back a collection of photos to share your impressions with us, I'm sure this series will be fascinating. I like how your elevated point of view gives us a rich panorama but also keeps us close to the street, the people and the action. Your compositions are very effective, they show us the scenes in great detail and attractive colours. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello dear Mesut,
    I've been to Symi for a few hours and, as I was taking a lot of pictures at the harbour and a few in the side streets, I was thinking of you and of your great collection from that island. This composition is superb, a very creative approach that went beyond the allure of the colours. I like the way you treated light, colours and contrasts, the graphic impact is most enjoyable. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Joginder,
    I like how you placed the vendor in this scene, he gets most of our attention and leaves some space for us to see the busy setting where he's working. The colours are attractive and his posture very interesting, I like the placement of his left hand and the strong eye contact. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonjour Serge,
    although the architecture is typical of this magnificent island, the style of the boats and the quay looks familiar and I find this scenery very lovely and inviting. I like the perspective that divides the foreground and leads us to the fort. You did a fine wotk on the light, clarity and colours are wonderful. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,
