    Hello Lars,
    This is a fine composition giving us two works of art for the price of one. The two figures frame the monolith very nicely and the blue sky gives them a perfect background.

    Hello Eleu,
    This is a nasty-looking technical wonder but you captured it very well with perfect sharpness and exposure. The distant plane is a fine detail of this photo which makes the stealth look even meaner.

    Hej Gert,
    Tervetuloa kotiin Suomessa.
    En synnerligen påpasslig bild, antingen hade du en väldig tur eller också fick du vänta länge på att ett sådant här perfekt ögonblick skulle infinna sig. En bra bild av dessa två damer med större eller mindre röda detaljer. Bilderna på väggen bakom har ju ett stort värde i sig själva. Christina var också i Helsingfors för några veckor sedan.
    Hälsningar
    Gunnar
    PS Jag gör, som du märkt en paus från TE, jag saknar tillräckligt bra bilder. Men jag har lagt ut bilder (och teckningar) på Facebook och Instagram. Där kan du också titta.

    Hello John,
    This is a lovely view of the scenery stretching far below, but of course the brightly dressed boy, his dad and their kite steal the show. This fine combination of human presence and natural beauty is entirely to my taste. It seems to have been a slightly hazy day but the light is good and the colours are perfect.

    Hello Serghei,
    A city without parks and open spaces would be a horrible place to live in, or just to visit, but the compression you have made here is nothing but fascinating. I know there are many streets between these houses, I just can't see them. What I find most appealing is how you have a mainly red foreground and the rest of the view being almost totally white, except for a blue strip at the top. It's very nicely composed.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Ourania,
    This is a very pleasant composition which very strongly expresses the quiet and peaceful atmosphere of an early evening at the height of summer. Although the boat with its bright colours is so very present in the foreground it doesn't steal the attention away from the hills and the white houses across the bay. They cathch the warm, last rays of the sun so beautifully that they can't be overlooked. Besides, the reflections from the distant land almost reach all thw way up to this shore.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Kasia,
    A very nice line of silhouettes in a picture that makes me think af an etching. The two persons on each side are both facing the central part, approaching the two groups of three persons. This looks like a fairly simple photo but it's very carefully composed and with a strange but absolutely fascinating colour which I can't really define.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Kasia,
    These are three amazing photos. Sometimes I think pictures of sunsets turn into the cheapest kind of postcards, but if they are well composed they can get quite fascinating. These are well done, and especially this one has some fantastic colours. Furthermore it's so well composed with the silhouettes of the person and the seagull both standing where orange/pink meets blue/pink.

    Hej Trevor,
    Den här bilden, med sina vackra pastellfärger, påminner mig om en illustration till en barnbok. Den får mig absolut att tänka på Enid Blyton's böcker om "Fem", fast här är det mer än en hund. Det är en mycket fin komposition med trivsam stämning bland barnen och hundarna och ett vackert landskap.
    Hälsningar,

    Hello Craig,
    This is the kind of fish-eye picture that almost makes me a bit dizzy, but you certainly managed to get a lot of circles, half circles and other curving lines into this shot. I am amazed by the good light and superb clarity of the colors. This is technically a first class photo.

    Hello Leslie,
    This is quite a remarkable scenery, rather unusual, and the small waterfalls look so neat and well arranged. It's a well composed photo with fairly discreet but lovely colours, espcially the yellow and gren tones in the corner.

    Hello Claude,
    This is another kind of street-shot. I like this composition of the black road bending twice in the green surroundings, with the light from the car reflected in the wet surface. I can imagine this was a moment where you saw the composition before it appeared, you just had to wait for the right moment.

    Basically any one of these photos would have qualified as a regular upload on its own, but the combined effect may still be greater. They are all interesting, amusing and well taken and you have arranged them very neatly.

    Hello Jasmine,
    This is an original and rather refined composition. There are not many colours but they are well balanced. I like the contrast of blue water and dark grey sky, and I also like the small areas of bright green in the lower part. The pirate flag is puzzling, but clearly somebody here had a sense of humour.

    Hello Mesut,
    Still in use but not still in a very good shape. Sadly, this kind of decay creates a certain beauty among the cracks and peeling paint. The colours are undeniably nice and the rough texture of the wall has been brought out very well.

    This is a fine landscape which makes it easy to understand who Uganda is so famous for its scenic beauty. I like to watch the typical red road going down the hill, passing by the tiny village and then climbing the next hill.

    Hello Serge,
    You have captured a very nice atmosphere in a beautiful composition. I like how you placed the boat with its red captain in the foreground, just in front of the gap in the hill. The dark water contrasts well with the light blue sky. The colours and light are excellent.

    Hello Angel,
    A very pretty street with beautiful houses. The woman in the red coat is well placed and adds a bright spot. In spite of the many fine houses it is she who makes the composition. It was a grey day and the sky is rather washed out, but the light is still very fine and has given the colours a great mildness.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
