    Hello Kasia

    Sorry to be so late: I've been away for a couple of weeks, and on a boat, so no Wifi! I'm honoured by your dedication (and impressed with your dedication to your photography!) Love the pastel tones here, and being basically a snapper of people, I also like your choice of wildlife. Composition too is of course perfect.

    Kind regards

    Hello Bartek

    Your title is apposite: it's certainly the colours that make the image work so well. A range of pastel tones, courtesy of the mist and early morning light. It pays to be up with the lark if you're a photographer!

    Well spotted, and well waited! The cyclist certainly makes the shot, and balances the kids playing in the other side of the frame. Another up-beat monochrome from sunny Hungary!

    Hello Gy

    Sorry to have missed this one - been away for a week or so, and no Wifi on the boat! Not sure if it's gritty, but it's certainly street photography in good ol' black and white! Love the expressions of the two main characters, and the activity in the background. Sunny, optimistic - hardly gritty at all! But good.

    Hello Craig

    Fascinating landscape: dramatic and impressive. I don't know what focal length you were using, probably fairly wide I guess, but you've managed to cram the whole of the headland into your frame. I can imagine this place in a storm...

    Hello Ourania

    So you're getting into street photography! Not that this is a street of course, but the attitude, the mind-set, is the same: grabbing candid shots of strangers "à la sauvette". Great poses and gestures. A whole story here in one image...

    Hello Nicolas

    Lovely shot. I actually like the slight under-exposure, which has saturated the colours nicely, and the little huts which seem to erupt from the terraced hillside.

    Hello Abmdsudi

    Spectacularly beautiful. You say that your "humble shot" can't convey the sense of the place, but I have to say you've done a pretty good job: I can hear the silence, and smell the sharp cold air... Lovely.

    Hello Luciano

    I doubt if I'm the first to suggest you've walked on the Moon with Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin! This is a spectacular place, and your photograph does it full justice. I like the low viewpoint, and the fact that you've not - apparently - falsified the colours. Good stuff!

    Hello Stephen

    Manicured, neat, clean and tidy - and that's just the town! We must be in Germany. Your well-proportioned photograph does full justice to this sturdy burgher's town: you've shown us a colourful scene, pedestrianised street, smart cafe, and magisterial church: a tidy little shot.

    Hello Gert

    Without the pedestrian and her Dachshund, this would still be an interesting documentary shot; their inclusion makes this true street photography. I love the details in the shop window and the graffiti on the door. It looks seedy, but the lady mitigates that, I think. But I do believe she's slightly out of focus, so I suspect your autofocus found the wall, and then she walked in front of it! (no EXIF data, so I don't know what aperture you were using)

    A lovely, quiet, balanced composition. It oozes relaxed holiday vibes. Maybe it's the long horizontals that create the atmosphere.

    Hello Beatrice

    Another sophisticated image, that has so far gone unnoticed. Maybe your style is too austere for the average TE punter, but I like it a lot. In this shot I'm particularly drawn to the strong geometries, but also the inside vs. outside tension...

    Hello Mariusz

    We stayed in Kotor for a week or so a couple of years ago, but sadly didn't enjoy this sort of weather. Your choice of square format is interesting, and presumably involved a crop: which always makes me wonder what has been removed from the original frame! And you've straightened the converging verticals which your wide-angle bequeathed you! Dramatic scenery and city cafe-culture all in one shot. Did you climb up to St. John's Fort? Maybe not with a little one...

    Kind regards

    The last word in minimalism! I like the insistent horizontals and the three separate areas of tone. A brave, austere and relentless landscape.

    Hello Kari

    You've given us a very pretty little scene here: boats, brightly coloured fishermen's huts and red-berried bushes. So the grey camouflaged naval vessel comes as something of a shock which adds another, more sinister, element to the image. Nice one.

    Hello Rob

    It's like a reflection in a hall of mirrors. And I'm reminded of a photograph I posted a while back, but the reflections in mine are in a window rather than the water. Same effect of course. I particularly like the distortion of the two tall posts in your image.

    A very satisfying composition, with the lines of the vines creating good dynamic diagonals across the frame, and the road, mountains and mist creating a sort of frame. The little hut is artfully place too...
