    Hello Lisa,
    This is really an amazing photo, so sharp and so beautiful, looking like a poster or maybe something out of an animated movie. The WS is "nice" too. I suppose the red streaks are not blood :-).

    Hello Costantino,
    I recognize with a pleasure the excitement of approaching a new island and waiting for the moment when I can go ashore. This is a very nice photo of the people watching the hills of Ikaria on a beautiful sunny day. The light is perfect and the blue chair and red life buoy add fine, strong colours.

    Hello Ana,
    You have gone one step further with this composition. I actually like this better than the last photo because it's such a "clean" photo, showing nothing but the dead tree, the girl in the red rubber dinghy and a few reflections in the dark water. It's a very elegant and eye-catching composition. Maybe it's actually one of your best. It goes to my favorites.
    Have a nice weekend.

    Hello Carlo,
    Here is another fine composition I had missed. It is very carefully cropped and has fine, regular patterns. The decorations made by children add fine colours in a surprising and nice way.

    Hello Carlo,
    I like this simple but smart composition veery much. You used the white lines of the glass fašade very elegantly to create a rhythmical pattern filled with the reflections of a tree, the sky and clouds. It was very cleverly done.

    Hello Angel,
    This is a very pretty and picturesque village. The port is filled with simple but nice boats and the houses climb the steep hillside in a very attractive way. You balanced the composition very well and the light and colours are excellent. It's in every way a very pleasant photo.
    Have a nice weekend,

    Hello Burak,
    I have never been to a Hard Rock CafÚ, but this one could perhaps be a nice place to visit, just for the view of the canal, or river. It would be a fine place to watch the boats. I like this well composed photo with perfect light and colours.

    A fine photo of the old woman. She is well seen against the light background while walking carefully down the cobbled alley. A fine conversion to B&W.

    Hello Ourania,
    The gull posed very nicely for you in a perfect place, well seen against the dar k green water. It's a fine and very well exposed photo in a beautiful light. Seagulls and similar birds are nice in their natural environment but less pleasant when they move into the cities. I live only a couple of hundred meters from the Baltic Sea and lots of seagulls build their nests on the roofs of nearby houses. They make a terrible noise early in the mornings in summer and sometimes attack people to protect the young birds that have not quite mastered the technique of flying. They can be a real nuisance. And they are so big, when you meet them in the street. ;-)
    Have a nice weekend,

    Hello Jasmine,
    This is a stunning and almost explosive composition. The light shining on the building has a marvellous intensity which makes sit look like it was made of pure gold. The clouds are truly magnificent, and even though they may have received some assistance through PP you did that very well.
    And thank you again for your latest outburst of green smileys. ;-)
    Wish you a nice weekend,

    This is a beautiful sunset. The sun is well placed, the colours are fantastic and the view is very nicely framed by the dark areas at the top and bottom. It's very well exposed with well captured reflections.

    This is a beautiful castle and the colours are fantastic. It's a very nicely composed and well cropped photo where you have managed a kind of cubistic style. The sharpness is just superb too.

    Hello Jean,
    Both versions are excellent but I still prefer this one because of the few but very pleasantly mild colours. There are very fine tones of blue, grey and yellow. The birds are beautiful and adorn the foreground very nicely.

    Hello Malgo,
    Now I understand why you needed strong, sturdy shoes for this journey. You did a lot of walking this time too. This view is just fantastic and very exotic. Except for the typical Nordic houses it could be somewhere very far away, like the Philippines or southern Chile. And the god of weather was on your side.
    Have a nice weekend.

    Hello Jean,
    This is a fascinating sculpture, especially when placed in an environment like this. Although the woman is standing some distance away she still helps us to get an idea of the dimensions of the sculpture.
    I had no idea of this work but your note made me curious. Indeed the sculptor was from Poland and he made a lot of equally fascinating works. His name was Igor Mitoraj:
