    Hello Aleksander,
    A fine composition with a rather romantic atmosphere. The lights from the windows look very cosy and match the light from the half moon. The dark blue evening sky dominates the view beautifully.

    Hello Ana,
    A plain and simple but very nice composition. The paper flowers look very bright against the white wall. I wonder if the curtain is used to match the flowers, or the other way around. Or maybe it's just a coincidence.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Karolina,
    Portuguese food is often delicious. Let's hope this restaurant is not too touristic and adapted to foreign tastes. It's a nice photo in fine B&W tones of a situation we all know, whether to pick this restaurant or go somewhere else.

    Hello Danos,
    A beautiful view and an excellent composition. There is not one dead or empty part of this photo. At every angle there are interesting views of boats, houses, mountains and clouds. The light has a wonderful brightness and the colours have a fine intensity.

    Hello Malgo,
    With this photo I think you have followed some important rules for composition, mainly a beautiful frame and a human foreground. The roofs of the two stupas fit perfectly inside the beautifully decorated screen and there are enough people walking across the burning hot tiles to show what a lively place this is at all times of the day. Without any doubt this is also to me one of the greatest places ever.
    Another gem that you had carefully hidden for several years ;-).
    Kind regards,
    Gert
    PS I allowed myself to use your space for a message to Stephen, although I am not sure that he will see it.

    Hello Roland,
    I would not call this kind of graffiti "art". It is done with no consideration to the community, it shows no artistic talent and has no other message then "I was here". But along with the red door, the surrounding wall and the house number all these tags get an interesting graphic effect. I would say that the graffiti is not art, but your photo is.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Maciej,
    It's an impressive view of the mainly white houses and red roofs. Seeing so many looking the same, so tightly packed together but at different angles, has a strong impact. Great light and colours and a fine green frame at the bottom.

    Hello Mesut,
    These are very original pink chairs and table, not the kind you would expect to find in a street. But they go well with the light blue door and window shutters and the grey wall. It's a simple but pleasant photo with a good combination of colours.
    Best regards,

    Zdravo Aleksandar. Nice ambience with the old Ottoman cemetery in the corner, the beautiful foliage and old stone paving and columns. I like your unobtrusive POV. Lovely light. Workshop is nice as well and shows many more worshipers. Pozdrav. Klaudio.

    Hi Andre
    now thats a greenhouse!
    probably the best looking greenhouse i've ever seen :)
    and you had a wicked day to capture it too, with the clear bright day with large clouds - you couldn't ask for better conditions.

    smart angle of attack too.
    well done
    cheers

    Hi Chris. we have all heard of the burning of books, but turning them into cardboard is rubbing salt into the wounds.Maybe the books should have been saved and this library.....! Whose son or daughter designed this?The Orthodox Cathedral looks absolutely graceful by contrast. Anyway, excellent exposure and POV. Regards. Klaudio.

    ooooh che bella. Adoro questo capolavoro. I toni azzurri ed argenti sono veramente spettacolare. La resa cromatica e' super ed adoro i riflessi. Un grande colpo di occhio. 10 e lode!

    Hello Pierre,

    The old car looks almost vintage even though it only dates from the 80's. Good sharpness and well framed and composed with plenty of breathing space right around. I might have cropped 1/2 of the fg for a more wide angled panoramic crop. Tfs.

    Ciao Francesco

    The rust red ship in the river is eyecatching and sets up an immediate warm cold color contrast against the bg blue sky. Good sharpness and nice repetition of the moored boats at right. A superb high vantage point. The yacht at left in the bottom corner adds strong lead in lines and dynamism with its diagonal alignment. Tfs.

    Hello Ike.

    Although native to South America, these jacaranda trees also grow well in east coast Australia from about Sydney north into Queensland. They flower in October and remind students it's time to study for the looming exams! Good color, sharpness and saturation. I like the wide angled panoramic crop. Tfs.
