    Ciao Silvio,
    com' e' spettacolare ed interessante questo paesaggio urbano, preservato ed utilizzato per tanti secoli. Belle ed invitanti le prospettive, stupendi i dettagli e molto gratificanti le variazioni delle architetture. Hai quasi riempito il quadro con il paesaggio, il cielo fa' un contrasto delizioso, le tonalita' armoniose sono piacevoli. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buona notte,

    Hello Joginder,
    I haven't seen many Babas (in pictures, of course) as young as the one you are presenting in this portrait. His straighforward gaze is intense and I get the impression that he wasn't totally still at the moment his picture was taken. There's naturalness and spontaneity, I think that Abmdsudi's processing has brought them out even more. An interesting person, the bright colours enhance his features and style even more. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely day,

    Hello Karolina,
    this is a superb portrait, minimal in its structure but from a very effective angle, that gives dynamism and evokes the contact between the singer and her audience. I like very much her expression, her posture that fills the frame, the atmospheric grey tones. The texture of her clothes add a graphical aspect. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Murat,
    a very attractive view, you are presenting it in an excellent composition with gorgeous colours. Rich colours make strong contrasts that render the scene so vibrant. Details and textures are interesting, the human presence neat and significant. Your picture makes a great advertisement for this extravagant place. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Ray,
    the landscape is awesome and your composition, giving so much emphasis on the shady area, is original and intriguing. I like this thorough view, where part of the "sculpted" rock formations stand out in the sunshine and the other part is almost silhouetted. I like the long shadows creeping cross the ground, the dark grey tones are alluring and there's no complaint about clarity. The mood is timeless. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonsoir Christian,
    this is an attractive picturesque fountain, it clearly has a long history in this place. It has kept its timeless aspect almost intact while the buldings around it have some modern additions. The wall in the background isn't so attractive but I like the glimpse of the facades along the street and the fine play of light that graces the scenery. The light and the red colours create a pleasing mood. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Maciej,
    the red gondola is very attractive, you have placed it very well in the frame (sacrificing much of its reflection) so that there's a full, clear and unobstracted view to the Palace. Palace and surroundings seem to be very lovely, the sunshine and the colours are splendid. I also appreciate the clear view and the details, the sense of depth and the perspective. It's good that the people in the foreground are interested in the Palace too. The different colours of the gondola in the workshop give an entirely different mood. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a good night,

    Hello Noel,
    another attractive and interesting aspect of the grand Ashford Castle, it's easier to discern its present function as a hotel from this angle. Although it's too long to fit in the frame from this perspective, it offers a very rewarding view, the clarity of your picture is excellent. I also like the moody colours, the vague reflections and the sleek surface of the lake. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonsoir Nicou,
    lovely, elegant, dense graphism, it seems you can find it anywhere in nature and produce attractive, refreshing images with it. I love the play of lines and colours as well as the play with reflections and transparency. The tight framing enhances the graphic character of the scene, light and contrast management are superb. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Stephen,
    I like very much this composition, you are presenting the long building from a great distance, interestingly framed by the shade and the foliage, it seems endless. There's attractive dynamism and brightness in the middle of the frame, the framing creates a very pleasant, balanced and graphic effect, enhances the depth as well. The colours are most delightful. Congratulations and thank you!

    a beutiful night skyline with a huge full moon, it's view is so clear and it really dominates the composition. The sharpness in the whole cityscape is stunning, the golden lights are mesmerizing and I even love the rich dark colours. An irresistible picture, congratulations and thank you!

    Bonjour Juliette,
    a simple composition with superb details, the presentation of this coastal cityscape is interesting and delightful. The blue of the sky is so lovely, I like the colour it has lent to the sea too. The warm colours are shiny and vibrant, the architecture and the reflections should give a lot of intriguing photo opportunities. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Chris,
    your picture is very rich in content and interest, it describes the resort in an excellent, very detailed way. There's great balance between the quays in the foreground and the cityscape in the background. Light and colours are splendid. I like the daily life scenes but the umbrellas and the swimmers are really too many! Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello dear Lisa,
    it's really surprising to discover common people in ordinary clothes in this fascinating futuristic setting, perhaps they've been kidnapped by aliens, only they look too calm. Also, there are some weird creatures in the reflections:) An amazing collection of strange, mostly fluid patterns, so graphic and appealing in monochrome. The symmetry is interesting, it fills the frame and makes it so spectacular. Congratulations and thank you!
