    Hello Daniel,
    I like very much this creative depiction of an architecture that is both elegant and imposing. You emphasized colours and contrasts in a bold and impressive way, the architectural features look graphically attractive, there's a fascinating play of repeating details, light and shadows. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    I like very much this creative approach to a timeless and absolutely fascinating theme. It's great you found ways to play with the architecture and bring us close both to some of its most distinctive features and to the lovely colours and patterns of the decoration. Perspective and definition are superb, the light and the blue sky set off the colours of the facade. The workshop pictures are great too, they show that there's a wealth of photo opportunities on this site. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Bonsoir Nicou,
    another of your great finds, fine abstract art created by Nature and exalted by your well-considered composition. There's a delightful rhythm in this scene and the diagonal offers playful contrast. The glass-like texture and the soft tones on the icicles are very pleasing to view. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Piotr,
    an interesting architectural landscape, I like very much the view you selected for this composition, the shapes have been arranged in a graceful way and a fine light brightens the scene and creates intriguing contrasts. I like the play of light, shadows and reflections all over the geometrical setting. Congratulations and thank you!

    Ciao Carlo,
    e' grande ed impressionante questo Arco di Trionfo, e' vero che l' architettura e' un po' esaggerata ma gli da' un aspetto sicuramente particolare. Mi piace la forte definizione ed i colori brillanti e contrastanti. Le ombre circondanti fanno una cornice effettiva, quelle sul monumento aggiungono tocchi di grafismo e di solennita'. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buona serata,

    Hello dear Mesut,
    the little boy is very cute and has an interesting personality, I like the way he expresses it through his posture and expression. The soft, red sweater is a marvellous element, a very attractive and powerful colour against the gritty grey textures. Sharpness, light and shadows work wonderfully too, giving a very vivid impression. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonsoir cher Philippe,
    I think that it is a good idea, if you can afford it, but it may be a great waste of water sometimes. Your picture shows how it also freshens and lightens the ambiance, adding light, pleasant reflections and colours. I like the low point of view, the bright, sunny colours and the contrast offered by the shadows. Congratulations and thank you!

    Ciao Silvio,
    molto bella la vista sulla piazza e gli edifici significativi della citta', mi piace che hai incluso anche il monumento centrale ed alcune persone. La vista sulle montagne del paesaggio circondante e' magnifica. Mi piacciono molto tanto le tonalita' calorose dentro la citta quanto quelle piu' deboli nelle ombre e nel paesaggio. Hai gestito colori ed illuminazione superbamente. Complimenti e grazie!

    Hola Angel,
    this natural arcade is enormous, a very impressive natural structure, the dark tones in your tight composition make it look even more imposing. The play of light enriches the scene and enhances the sense of depth. The people offer a fascinating sense of scale. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Andrew,
    this apartment is in a most fascinating neighbourhood, it must be wonderful to live there. The view from the bathroom window has some pleasing and some not very attractive parts, the warm afternoon light has surely made it look allurinng. I like the effect of the shadows and the red chimneys, the reflections on the left and the pale blue sky. It's great how the light has warmed up the grey tones, distinguishing them from those remaining in the shade. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Ciao Luciano,
    una trovata molto bella ed interessante, ottima la tua composizione dalla finestra del museo, ci presenta effettivamente uno scenario urbano con elementi tipici ma anche con particolarita intriganti. Mi piacciono le prospettive originali ed il grafismo. La qualita' della luce ha reso le ombre morbide ed i colori sono armoniosi. L' ingresso in mezzo alle scalinate fa' un punto focale forte. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buona serata,

    Bonjour Serge,
    your composition is neat, balanced and delightful, I like very much the thorough view of this fine castle, its yard and its backyard, the beackground scenery looks wonderful too. The sunshine and the colours are most enjoyable, the clarity of the whole scene is marvellous. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Stephen,
    I hadn't seen that Memorial Fountain or anything that looked like it before, it's very interesting for both the effect it creates and its structure. I like how the light is filtred through the water, giving a fresh and enjoyable look to the scene. I appreciate this presentation that is well lit and precise, accompanied by a thorough note too. Congratulations and thank you!

    Ciao Carlo,
    in ogni caso il piccione farebbe una presenza vivace ed interessante nella tua bella composizione, ma ha avuto ispirazione ed ha collaborato effettivamente per renderla davvero speciale. Ci ha portato una storia, ci si farebbe una bella favola per bambini. Mi piace molto la prospettiva e la geometria del riflesso, i colori urbani sono consistenti e molto piacevoli nella tua foto ispirata. Complimenti e grazie!

    Hello Lars,
    this is an interesting and powerful image, the juxtaposition of the two elements that compose this scene, as well as what we now know of history and modern life could lead to a flow of thoughts. I like the dynamic posture, the texture and the sheen on the statue. Given the angle of the light and the consistent dark colours, I think that this image would be also interesting in monochrome. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a good night,

    Hello dear Takero,
    the effect of the movement works surpisingly well and it has varying intensities all over the picture. Again you captured an intense look on the part of your model, that expesses the spirit of the lively, carnival music. I also like the harmonious palette, even the random, distant backdrop contributes to the chromatic harmony. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonsoir Cricri,
