    Hello Romano,
    For this photo you found a very good POV where you could anchor the composition in the trees below you. From the left side the bridge makes a diagonal across the very green river, through the "gate" and on to the church further back. The colours are strong and, as always, well saturated, and the clouds are nicely shaped. The note about the love padlocks is interesting. This has become a popular habit everywhere, but I never heard before of this proof of ever-lasting love attached to garbage bins.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Mesut,
    Cute girls, as always, having some fun before their performance in their fantastic clothes. A very nice glimpse from inside the crowd. But where do they get these clothes, looking rather expensive? Do many Turkish families have such clothes at home to use for special occasions or are they provided by the schools or government insttutions?
    Kind regards,

    Hello Serghei,
    Another first class composition. It's a bit confusing at first, but there are some amazing colours and patterns among these containers and huge steel constructions. The small yacht looks very very small in comparion with the giants next to it. You made yet another good observation which a lot of people would probably have overlooked.
    Best regards,

    Hello Silvio,
    This is an impressive chapel, maybe not big but looking very massive with its plain, rounded white walls. The low stone wall in the foreground makes a nice curve, which is then followed up by the road curving to the right behind the chapel. The colours and light are very good.
    Kind regards,

    Hi Dwaipayan,
    A very interesting picture. At this altitude I can really understand that you may encounter such Nordic scenes with full winter. A very attractive picture and the man in red is the eye-catcher that makes this picture more than just an ordinary winter capture. But all colours here are indeed very attractive.
    Kind regards

    Hello Dwaipayan,
    This is a less common view from West Bengal, state of steaming hot Calcutta. It looks rather like an average European winter landscape. It's a very well exposed photo with well captured tones of the snow and perfectly mild colours of the sky. The red man and his dog are perfectly placed in the foreground.

    Hi Daniel,
    A very attractive cityscape with the light brown buildings between the blue sky and the blue sea. Many beautiful and interesting architectural details to be enjoyed here and colours among the resting boats. A very pleasant view!

    Hi Paja,
    congratulations on your 800th post and what a fine shot to mark the occasion. You are presenting another very fine impression of your region: attractive in the simplicity of lines and colors. The light is nicely managed too.

    Hello Ourania,
    Compared with many other similar reflections this may look rather plain, but I would call this view a natural beauty that doesn't need much make-up. The boat and the sunray create two or three fine diagonals, including a bright triangle, and the other segments offer discreet but attractive tones of mild colours. The red streak in the upper right corner breaks the general softness in a nice way. That you managed to observe this less spectacular composition is another proof of your talent.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hi Craig,
    A fine combination here of the big rocks and the high buildings behind. I read an article here about Vancouver and how Gothenburg could learn from your city planning. Gothenburg is unfortunately a very segregated city and should find out how Vancouver has apparently avoided all the problems we have here.
    Kind regards

    Hi Murat,
    The boat adds many details and colours as it rests between the grey-blue clouds and the blue-green water. The red flag is the given eye-catcher here.

    Amazing colours! The golden line of sunset between the dark blue clouds and the greenish sea is perfectly captures. The little boat puts everything in a context, a very beautiful picture!

    Hello Daniel,
    I think the islands of Malta must have a world record for church density. I recall how I could see a chuch tower or a huge dome in whatever direction I was looking. These two churches dominate the view of the small harbour in spite of the large number of boats. Churches and boats and sunshine make this a very typical Maltese view. You used the good light and fine colours well.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
