    Hello John,
    You captured a lovely view across the green field towards the pretty, small village. Even the light clouds were very attractive on that beautiful day. You must have had a perfect bicycle tour. The colours are as always very attractive.

    Hello Angel,
    This view is stunningly beautiful and has a charming simplicity that gives most of the view a minimalistic touch. The reflections are amazing and I love the fine balance between the two blue areas, the lower one just slightly darker. The exposure is spot on.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Luis,
    This may be an arranged small town view but the buildings are all very attractive and the cobbled street is nicely laid out. The visitors enliven the view, as people tend to do. First of all it's another outstanding photo of immaculate exposure and colours.

    Hello Chris,
    A nice photo from above, an angle I always like. There's more to watch than in most photos from a beach. Girls bathing, people in bright inflatable boats, balloons, nice rocks, fine colours of the water. I like it.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
    PS Tirani is new to me, but I have also found it confusing to choose between Tirana or Tirane. Every geographical name has two forms and I could never grasp the differences. I got an impression that Albanians are also slightly confused.

    Hello Costantino,
    This photo has very fine tones of blue in the sky and the sea. Between these areas the white buildings with red roofs are very attractive and well placed among the trees just by the sea. The photo has a very appealing clarity.

    A well composed photo with nicely strong colours. Although I am indifferent to the message of the cross it is no doubt quite impressive and you placed it well in the photo.

    Hello Jasmis,
    Gritty houses, dirt road, overgrown lawns. Except for the style of the bike this could probably have been from the 1950's. Excellent black & white tones. Absolutely a favourite.

    Hello Malgo,
    I recognize this kind of scenery in Guizhou, so everything hasn't changed since 1986. I also had to satisfy myself with photos only from the train since it was difficult to come closer to these areas. Maybe there are still slower trains looking like they did 30 years ago, but what you show in the WS is very different from then. "Soft class" was quite comfortable but very old-fashioned in style.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    The photo has fine depth and you managed the night light well. Especially I like the rays across the street. But I wish there had been at least one or two persons here.

    Hello Jason,
    It's nice to see one of your rare photos here. It's very well composed and the wall paintings are bright and eye-catching in spite of being slightly faded. Whatever that is, looking like a cranium of a bull, it is well placed near the corner.

    Hello Ryszard,
    There were surprisingly few photos from Landshut on TE before you got there, but what a pretty little town it seems to be. Three well taken photos today of astonishingly beautiful buildings, all looking to be in a perfect shape.

    Hello Murat,
    So maybe Haydarpaşa will remain a train station, and maybe that is the best solution. These trains will no doubt be taken out of service before that ever happens. The rust indicates they have been ready for retirement for many years. The graffiti makes them look a little bit nicer. The diagonal composition makes the photo nicer.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Jorge,
    There is nothing better than getting lost temporarily for discovering things you didn't know about. Always following the beaten path is boring. If you hadn't lost your bus you wouldn't have seen these men sitting so nicely on the rock pointing their fishing rod in different directions beside their yellow buckets. It's a very nice daily life scene, to me more interesting than a lot of ruins.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Chris,
    I think it was good to leave the black frame. Somehow the poor fish seem to get more breathing space like this. It's amazing what they could do with mosaics so long ago.

    Hello Dale,
    That castle is heavily destroyed but still looks like an exciting place to visit. The low perspective is important for this effect and the steps lead us straight up to the ruins. Sharpness and colours are great.

    Hello Robert,
    You handled the light brilliantly in this photo and probably found the best angle to show as much as possible of this wonderfully decorated room. The two men taking photos are important for recreating at least some of the atmosphere when this place was full of passengers.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
