    Hello Sergio,
    There is probably a great view from the top of the rock, but 740 steps sounds very much. The view from below is just as good. It's a spectacular rock and the surroundings are beautiful.

    Hello Benny,
    It's a fine composition from above. It looks like an area where you have to watch your step. I like the strong diagonal and the distinctly coloured areas.

    Hello Paul,
    Windows really provide many opportunities for nice compositions. Even I posted some, years ago, before I found my home among the nothing specials. This one has very nice colours and design.

    Hello Chris,
    This must be the most famous street corner in all of Albania. It's hard to resist for any photographer with such nice buildings and background view.

    This looks like a nice area. How come you didn't go there before? I have rarely seen such photogenic garbage cans before ;-).

    Hello Malgo,
    Great art in a beautiful location with fine light. A very good composition.
    Baku is a very big city with many very big buildings from Soviet days and many newer ones. There is not a lot really worth seeing but it's a good place for a few days. The Flame towers are great from anywhere at any time. Almost worth the entire journey.

    Hello Luciano,
    I thought I had the copyright for small talk, but all right, you can have it for free ;-).
    This also suits the "nothing special" theme well: two guys talking on the beach, nice colours, nice waves and a quiet atmosphere.

    Hello György,
    There is a beautiful light in this photo and very fine tones on the soft shapes of the hill. The tall reeds make a fine foreground. Didn't Iringo find any whisky that day? Next time lucky.

    Hello Lisa,
    Human presence is never really wrong in any photo, Surprises can be good things too. I think your friend's torchlight actually adds a dimension to this photo. He has almost become the "star" of this Milky Way shot.

    No lack of colours here, but where is the cheese? ;-)
    One question arises: what's stopping a visitor from going inside the room with a sharp needle?

    Hello Rob,
    This is an unexpected photo from downtown Manhattan, but I see it's part of Central Park where anything could happen. I like the bright light and the bodies lying at different engles. It rather makes me think of a scene from a movie.

    Hello Ali,
    This is a very nice view of the town. I like how they light is falling so neatly on the centre, as if a spot-light of a theatre had been directed on it. The town is nicely surrounded by shady areas. It is a well composed photo in three horizontal sections.

    It's a nice church situated next to a beautiful small park. The diagonals surrounding the lawn give a good structure to the composition. The colours are excellent.

    Hello Malgo,
    It's a nice building, at least very big. I like most of all the street going straight through it. Isn't Banco Santander one of the deeply troubled European banks? I hope the building will stand even if the bank collapses. The workshops are very different this time, but very nice.

    Hello Kari,
    It's a nice composition of the old style train entering the tunnel. I hope the persons taking photos didn't lean too far out of the windows. You got a better photo than any of them, but maybe someone behind you got an even better.

    Hello György,
    You have a good idea to take photos across the street of someone passing an interesting/ugly/peculiar part. You did it well this time too. There are lots of things to watch, and there seems to have been a good place for you to have a beer after the photo session.
    Best wishes,
    Gert
