    Hello Krzysztof,
    the Town Hall of Zamosc is a very imposing building, its style, dimensions, geometrical patterns and colours give it a unique aspect and make it an irresistible sight. I like the sharp definition of your presentation and the way you enriched the scene including the flower bed, the people and a strikingly graphic sky. The colours are intense and attractive. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a good night,

    Καλησπέρα Κωνσταντίνε,
    μια πολύ εντυπωσιακή άποψη της Σύρου από το κινούμενο πλοίο, η απόσταση βοήθησε τη σύνθεσή σου αφού πρόσθεσε μια χορταστική δόση θάλασσας στη βάση του κάδρου. Τα χρώματα είναι θαυμάσια, παρουσιάζουν έντονες αντιθέσεις και είναι πολύ ωραίο που το νησί περιβάλλεται από τόσο λαμπερούς τόνους του μπλε. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
    Να είσαι καλά, καλή σου νύχτα,
    Ουρανία

    Hello Gy,
    I am a football fan and have watched countless matches. I think that football is much more than 22 guys chasing a ball, sometimes it's easier to see its beauty when you watch people playing for fun, not (only) for money. The feeling of pride and unison you describe sounds familiar, some years ago we lived moments like that in Greece too, it might take some time until we get to live them again. I like how you captured this moment in time, experienced in a picturesque public place where people doubled their joy by sharing it. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a good night,

    Bonsoir Serge,
    this picture is very attractive and looks so artistic and mesmerizing. I like very much the definition of the liquid textures and abstract designs. It's easy to identify the scenery reflected but this doesn't cause the lovely patterns that run down the frame to lose their charm. You managed the intensity of the light and the colours most aptly. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hello dear Lisa,
    I like very much how you associate this timeless scene with your tracing back your family story and distant relatives that remained in this area. I like the plasticity and the mystery of the natural patterns, the symmetry and the wide range of fading tones create a fascinating kaleidoscopic effect. The scenery is described in an almost abstract way. The story of your ancestors (that I learned from John's note a little while ago) is fascinating, too bad that stories like that are being shaped in our days too. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Hello Fabiano,
    this is a magnificent scenery and I like the colours you captured very much. They are rich and the contrast they create makes great impact, even the dark blue of the sea has a suggestive glow. I also like the arrangement of the stunning rock formations across the frame. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello John,
    I like how you placed the tall monument in the background, how it reaches almost up to the top border and allows much space in the foreground for a vibrant scene of people walking towards it. Its dark tones and sharp textures make it stand out even more, the light and the surrounding colours are pleasing, the whole scene is natural and inviting. It's great to see a group of content TE friends in the workshop! Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, take care,

    Hello John,
    your note contains one of the most fascinating stories I've read on TE so far and it's also great to see Lisa looking so happy in the workshop picture! You wrote the story in an amazing way and your pictures provide marvellous illustrations. How lovely and peacefull this scenery is and how intricate the natural patterns and textures make it. The light, the play of shadows and the colours are lovely, the pain of the old events is hidden somewhere in the clouds and the shadows. Congratulations and thank you!

    PS Leros has seen off a lot of emigrants during the war or the years of poverty after that, many of them went to Australia too and some have joined them only recently. On the other hand the island has received many refugees in the last couple of years. They've been treated with respect, the help of the common people has been immense.

    Bonsoir Cricri,
    I like how the entrance fits in the vertical frame, how you have exalted the symmetry and managed to get such a fine definition despite the dark colours and the backlight. You included an interesting urban context too and the commuter walking into the station has added movement and reference, his presence is essential and he is placed perfectly. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Murat,
    I like how you captured one of the many fascinating effects of the light, displayed through the artwork. You captured the abstract forms, the colours and the contrast with the dark space very effectively. I also like the slight tilt of the square prism which seems to be moving slowly so the colours are about to shift too. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Lars,
    it's impressive that the outline of the buildings is so clear, it doesn't merge with the glowing sky and defines the architectural style of the city effectively. You also captured clear details across the facades as well as on the boats and the quay. This place looks lovely and it seems that it offers a lot of opporunities in terms of leisure. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Alexandre,
    a great idea to use the opening of the cave as a frame, its graphic outline is very attractive, I like how it speads across the frame, it looks dynamic and separates the dark area from the delightful natural view so effectively. I like the colours and textures seen through the opening, the contrast you created is wonderful. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Rob,
    a most intriguing depiction of the famous bridge, you created a marvellous graphic image that has great artistic value beyond the description it presents. The quality of the colours is wonderful, I like very much the rhythmical alternation of red and blue tones as well as the intervention of the shadows. You expressed your smart observation in an attractive artistic way, congratulations and thank you!

    Hello dear Mesut,
    I like how you focus on a small detail from the great archeological site that you know and love so much. You have created an amusing and effective "dialogue" between the ancient, marble rooster and the the real one. The textures and tones of the ancient marble sculture are superb. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Malgo,
    staying in this quiet, distant village must have felt refreshing, disconnection must be beneficial at times. I like very much the two pictures you are offering us from your early morning walk, both the landscape view and the daily life detail are delightful. In your main post I like the cute scene with the socks amid the natural elements and the lines. The light is lovely and creates a very agreeable mood. Congratulations and thank you!

    Ciao Carlo,
    un magnifico mosaico di dettagli architetturali, la ripetizione e' strepitosa ed i colori quasi omogenei posano una sfida allo spettatore che si mette a distinguere le case ed a trovare dettagli di carattere particolare. Il paesaggio ha dimensioni impressionanti, la sua densita' e' incredibile, le scalinate sono definite superbamente. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buona serata,
