    Bonsoir Cricri,
    a very attractive dynamic composition with great graphic impact. Perspective and colours work together most effectively, the one gives a boost to the other. The tones of the floor and the ceiling set off the fluorescent colours of the cabins in a striking way. I like very much the sense of depth and how the strong perspectives end at the bright blue box in the distance. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a good night,

    Hello Gert,
    the smile, the laugh and the vivid colours make this picture so delightful. It has energy and character and the viewer responds to it instantly, even before studying the details. It's so refreshing and reassuring to see this good mood in such a gritty context. I like very much the title which could apply to a large part of your timeless collection. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Saber,
    I like very much the elegant and dynamic way in which you combined the two attractive elements, the star-shaped flower bed and the long building that seems endless. Perspective and framing have been chosen effectively, the light is lovely and mild, the colours are natural and very agreeable. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Ray,
    I like very much this autumnal scenery, you are presenting it through a lovely composition of layers, a fine alternation of textures in a vertical frame. The light is pleasant and the autumn colours beautiful. The atmosphere is clear and pure the minivan has brought some lucky people in this fine wild scenery. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Daniel,
    a very intriguing composition that fascinates with its perspectives and makes us believe that wandering even in the less elegant parts of the town is a fascinating experience. The couple is excellently placed, dwarfed by the buildings and surrounded by sharply rendered details and textures. I like very much the play of scale as well as the wonderfully balanced light and colours. Congratulations and thank you!

I dettagli sono resi ottimamente, l' osservazione e' gratificante. Mi piacciono le tonalita' morbide ed armoniose, c' e' un effettivo senso di mistero. Complimenti e grazie!

    Hello Bev,
    I like very much how you filled the frame with interest. The red part bearing the boat's name is excellently placed in the frame, the foreground has an interesting perspective that distinguishes it from the background effectively. Definition is perfect all over, the harbour and the surrounding architecture are very well conveyed through a great variety of fearures. The reflections are very pleasant, the light has given the grey tones an agreeable warmth. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hello Craig,
    I like very much this close view to the characteristic cityscape and the elegant collection of architectural details. This place is so delightful, the bold colours are natural and attractive, the play of light and shadow adds variations and depth to the scene. The tight frame makes the rhythm of lines and shapes more intricate and fascinating, the textural variations are wonderful too. I like very much the workshop pictures as well, very interesting compositions and delightful holiday memories. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Hello Lars,
    a lovely and interesting scene with the cityscape, the bridge and the boat. Each element is well defined and attractive and plays an important role in your well balanced composition. I like the warm light and the vivid natural colours, depth and definition are excellent too. I've never been there but I wonder if the editing difficulties are due to the atmospheric conditions and the vastness of the views. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Malgo,
    a marvelous presentation of this elaborate architecture. The building has a unique character and is very attractive but you enhanced its charm through the way you used the light and enhanced the vividness of the colours. Definition is stunning and the soft cloudy sky makes a superb contrasting backdrop. The shadows frame and balance this symmetrical composition wonderfully. Congratulations and thank you!

    Ciao Carlo,
    questa foto e' davvero stupenda, la composizione e' minimale ed artistica, la graduazione dei colori e' incantevole ed offre un gradevole gioco per gli occhi. Mi piacciono molto i colori e come possiamo percepire la luce attraverso di essi. Il ritmo creato dai gabbiani e' delizioso. Superbo lavoro, complimenti e grazie!

    Hello dear Ali,
    an interesting subject for a spontaneous portrait, he has a friendly attitude and makes good contact with the viewer. It's interesting to see his traditional outfit and see how he stands out against the people walking in the background. I think that his intriguing face could be set off even more through enhancement of contrast. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    it's really fascinating to watch daily habits from distant places and compare them with our own. Your composition is simple and well balanced, the scene has kept its timeless character and conveys a sense of exoticism and mystery too. I like how you froze the movement, how you added depth and interest in the foreground and how the boy and his buffalo have the cloudscape as backdrop. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hola Maria querida,
    I learned about this fabulous building recently through Jason's photo and it's very interesting to study your approach too. You achieved wonderful definition and effective depth. I like the quiet and sunny atmosphere, the light and the shadows are pleasantly mild. There's fine harmony in the colours and the umbrellas stand out delightfully. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hola Angel,
    a bold and effective decision to place the tower and its arch in the middle of the frame and I like very much how the symmetry is challenged by the elements and colours of either side. Sharpness and colour definition are superb, you have coped with the gloomy lighting very effectively. The car passing through the arch adds balance and interest. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Gerrit,
    this is a peaceful and delightful scene, the two little boys are engrossed in their activity, they are sharing the experience but in different ways. So sweet to see the one trying to sort out the string and the other standing on the ledge to gain height for his yo-yo. I like the warm light and the vivid colours too. Congratulations and thank you!
