    Hello Ana,
    It's a nice river beach and the rather dead looking tree is still attractive and you placed it well. But the red "boat" in the green water is certainly what makes this photo really eye-catching. That girl was like sent to you from above to cheer up this view.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Lars,
    It's a very impressive building and I can see why the tower has become an icon of Canada. It's a bit like the Big Ben of London. You had to go some distance to get all of this huge complex inside the frame, but that had the advantage of giving you a nice green foreground.

    Hello Claude,
    It's not just the faces that are amazing. At least one of the hairstyles is really remarkable. They don't seem to be posing so I assume these are snapshots. Well spotted and well captured in that case.

    Hello John,
    this is a magnificent photo and I can assure you that I would be perfectly happy with the sharpness if I could ever take a picture like this. These birds are just perfectly captured. I can imagine they are about to do a "high five", and my thoughts also go to the Sixtine Chapel and the fresco showing God creating Adam. The dull weather actually gave you a perfect background too.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Craig,
    The lower part of the photo, up to just behind the two buildings, looks like anywhere from where I grew up, but we really didn't have any such mountains in my childhood area. The air looks fresh and crisp and the colors are bright and beautiful, and I fully understand that it was hard to find a crowd of people to adorn the photo in this part of the world.
    Best wishes,
    Gert

    Hello Malgo,
    Move this beach to the Mediterranean area and I would gladly spend some time there, although it looks like it could be very windy, But it's beautiful area and the two persons here are perfectly placed. And as usual there's nothing wrong with a red shirt. The workshops are very nice too.

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    You captured the man well at a totally non-posing moment. He looks completely absorbed by his work and you cropped the photo to a very neatly tight shape. The colours don't seem to have lost any of their original tones through scanning, but looking very closely on the man's face I think I see traces of post-processing, especially on his forehead and cheekbones that look a bit flat. I often notice that in my own photos after using the "despeckle".
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Jorge,

    The flowers in foreground make your picture very attractive.
    Of course the building is the real eye catcher on your picture.

    Very well done, TFS.

    Hello Maciej,
    What a very pretty and romantic castle. It probably serves better as a museum than as a house to live in. It's a very nicely balanced composition with wonderful colours.

    Hello Bev,
    Like Malgo I was a bit worried that the mother had got tired of waiting for the girl and left her alone outside while doing the shopping. It was a relief to see your reply ;-). The little girl's clothes were really made for a photo and the curving steps were a perfect place to find her. It's an amusing and heartwarming photo and you cropped it very neatly.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    I have always liked your portraits so it's very nice to see one of them again. You found a good background and a perfect light for this photo and the young man poses well. Does he know that he is now on the internet?
