    Hello Eleu,
    A very cute and charming family (daddy's gone, though). Nice environment, light and colors. Thanks for sharing.

    Hello Lars,
    This is an amazing photo, really something out of the ordinary for TE. Brothers maybe, or perhaps married, they look like identical twins with at least one identical tattoo. Perfectly observed, cropped and exposed.

    Hello Brenda,
    This was shown among your random photos. I didn't see it before but I like the way you composed it with the blue face matching the elements of the building across the street. The head is quite beautiful on its own but co-acts very nicely with the "palace".
    Kind regards,

    Hello Paul,
    I am not entirely sure if this is decorated in a good taste or slightly kitschy, but it is no doubt a spectacular place with amazing details well shown in your three photos. Regardless of price level it would not be my ideal place for a meal. I feel more at home in smaller, simpler but more cosy restaurants. Maybe it's because my budgets never allowed me to get used to flashy places like this.

    Hello Burak,
    It's a very ordinary back street but the graffiti cheers it up considerably. The children add the human presence that was needed. You timed the photo well and it's perfectly exposed.

    A fine and graphically interesting composition with well placed diagonals and a beautiful but limited colour scheme. Clearly a composition with a difference.

    Hello Gerrit,
    A very nice postcard. Since I have never been here I don't know what Rio looks like from "inside", but at least from this distance it looks fantastic. You found a great POV with a good blend of high-rise buildings, favela huts, forests, mountains and sea. A little of everything and all of it with good colours and nice light.

    Hello Chris,
    I thought it was in America that the streets were made of gold, but clearly they've got them in Bulgaria too. The scenery is terrific, the composition is very well balanced with a good use of the trees and the sky is remarkable.

    Hello György,
    I can almost get the impression you made an excursion to another planet. The mist, covering one third of the area, covers everything that could have identified this as part of Hungary, You have used the entire greyscale well for this original and graphically attractive photo.

    Hello Claude,
    Maybe this is a classic view but I didn't see this composition before. It's simple, which I think is an advantage, but smart and elegant. The wall, statues and tower balance each other very neatly. The light and colours are superb.

    Hello Daniel,
    You composed this very nicely. The open gate is like an invitation to step into the picture and go on a long walk in the thin snow among the hills. The weather certainly seems to have been inviting too. The light is excellently managed and the thin clouds make the sky look interesting too.

    Hello Noel,
    Can we trust that this isn't just a copy of a 18th century painting? Just joking of course, but it looks very much like something I would expect to find in a museum. This scenery and the ruins can't have changed much for the last few hundred years. The light, colours and clouds are almost too good to be true. It's amazing to realize they are.

    Hello Serghei,
    All right, it's not a stairway to heaven, but what about UFO's? Mars attacks? They look very sinister and I have never seen clouds like these before. Very strange, but of course in the US anything could happen. You captured them very well with just enough of the trees to connect the clouds with the ground, in a way. Nicely seen (maybe hard to avoid) and captured with a perfect exposure.
    Have a nice weekend,
    Gert

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    A quite magnificent photo of this very famous mosque of a more than respectable age. But the way you composed this photo it could almost as well have been titled "Above the mosque". The clouds are truly spectacular.

    Hello Ryszard,
    A fine photo with wonderful colours and contrasts and qualities of almost a 3D photo. There are many fantastic details on the façade and a nice gathering of people. I quite like the inclusion of the woman almost stepping out of the frame.

    This is a genuinely attractive view which would suit most people. An amazing construction, human activity, lots of colours and quite nice nature. The workshop is a very interesting complement, but this photo is so full of life and history that it is the obvious first choice.Wonderful light and fine colours - who could ask for more?

    Hello Denis,
    A very nice composition with beautiful buildings, fine colours and enough people to create a lively impression. The canal and the small bridge create depth and to the right the composition is nicely framed by the tree. It is generally a very pleasant view and an attractive photo.
