    Hello Costantino,
    I happened to miss this fine photo. This is a popular and well known view, but the colours and postures of the soldiers in front of the grey wall are superbly captured. I can read what is written on the wall, but unfortunately I don't understand it, but the letters have a great graphic beauty and contribute much to the composition.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Gerrit,
    You have captured the game very well. This photo has a great sense of movement. Except for the ball lying there, waiting top be kicked, these boys might just as well have been performing some kind of dance. Especially the nearest boy is superbly captured.

    Hello Mesut,
    Pigeons are always irresistible to small children who love to chase them around, disturbing their meals. You took a charming photo of this little boy who looks like he is contemplating whether to make another rush. It's a very nice capture from daily life.

    Hello Maciej,
    This is a beautiful and impressive church, but it is surprising to find a church as big as this way out in the countryside. Where is the congregation? I guess conditions were very different 900 years ago. I like the POV where the different tones of green create a fine foreground.

    Hi Jason. Composed with great respect towards this beautiful and impressive building. You have selected the optimum POV so as to feature the symmetry, grandeur and substance of the place. Mastery of your camera has produced excellent clarity, exposure and colours. My compliments. Klaudio.

    Hi Ourania
    How excellent that you got to shoot this spooky of building before is renovation, it will be a fascinating document in the future for those who only ever knew it in its newer future form. Black and white is a perfect choice too, really drawing the eye to the floor and textural contrast of the building and the chairs. Really nicely seen
    Cheers

    Hello Chris,
    A fine church seen from a good angle entirely dedicated to the black and white domes. Clearly this building must have been restored in recent times. It looks too good to be untouched since it was rebuilt in the 1540's. I wonder if any government of independent Moldova has had enough money or if it was actually done in the Soviet days.
    Best regards,

    Hi Ana
    A touching human moment, made more so by your note explaining these young girls have their time to charity. Vibrant colors and a perfect crop. Even though there is great for like innocence to this, the girl applying the make up has the intense look of a trained professional. Great shot

    Hi Andrew. A sombre monument to unfortunate results when two peoples meet on an uneven basis. It seems to reach to the sky and because of your POV and strong composition, one is not sure how tall this totem is but it does look monumental. Great effort. Regards. Klaudio.

    This was a well spotted moment of relaxation and natural behavior, not intended for the tourists. It's a colourful and captivating photo. These girls are really prettier than the average graffiti :-).

    Hi Omid
    Nice idea to have the roof of the building perfectly follow the life of the light like this, it makes a great light show and makes the building have great imposing presence. Thanks for sharing

    Hello Serghei,
    This is a not so often seen view from Japan, making me think more of the Himalayas. The dense forest, all covered in snow, creates a superb foreground to the view of the rugged mountains.The mainly clear blue sky is made more interesting by the small dark clouds.
    Kind regards,

    Hi Maciej
    A fine building and quite amazing that is so old, it looks in pristine condition. I would normally expect to see a church this size in a large urban area, quite surprising and nicely chosen to see it with this fine natural foreground. Beautiful light to too

    Hello Sasha,
    It is not necessary to travel around the world to take good photos (even though I have done that). Interesting photos can be found in your own neighborhood if you have eyes to see the opportunities. This is a fine wall with nice lines and colours and you made it more interesting and surprising with the deliberate tilt. It is a photo that nobody could miss.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
