    Hello Christiane,
    Before I saw the title I felt there was something wrong with this view from Venice ;-). It's an amusing photo, but it makes me wonder why the people of Las Vegas never create anything of their own instead of copying other places. But my compliments to the light and colours of this photo.

    Hello Will,
    I thought it was mainly the strong light that caused you some slight trouble with the shady parts, such as a certain lack of contrasts in the men's faces, but maybe it was the condensation you mention. I wouldn't have thought of that. Regardless of the fairly harsh conditions its's a fine picture of the still very traditional life dominating rural Cambodia. Whereas Vietnam has risen from the ashes of war much faster, it's amazing that Cambodia has risen at all, considering how the entire society was crushed.

    A nicely framed and well cropped photo of this interesting architecture. The red curtains provide an attractive addition of bright colour.

    Hello Lars,
    Some of those tall buildings are quite attractive, but to my mind it's the inclusion of the iron sculpture that makes this a good composition. Just a nice view isn't always enough to make a photo interesting, so you made a good choice to use this POV.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Murat,
    This is an amazing architecture for just a ferry pier entrance. Without the sign I could have expected to approach a mosque or a palace. It's a very interesting photo with excellent light and colours.

    Hello Rib,
    When I see your photos I often feel a bit uncertain if you are trying a trick to manipulate my eyes, but this time I think this building complex is just what it looks like. I applause the smart architects and also your well cropped photo which I think does the buildings full credit. The effect of all these angles and reflections is stunning. Including the sky there is an amazing number of blue tones, which along with the yellow and orange details create a very attractive pattern.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Ryszard,
    It's a very nice town hall despite not being so very old. They certainly did their best to adorn it with a maximum of details, The buildings to the right also look interesting and it seems to be a generally nice square. The orange benches fit this place quite well. I wonder if the chosen colour is a coincidence. It's an excellently sharp and clear photo.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Ourania,
    Maybe the man saw your camera and decided you needed his assistance, He definitely gave you a better composition than you could have achieved with just the quay. By taking this photo when he was halfway to the flag you used his assistance well to create a fine depth. The benches, the rope to the left and the small boat also contribute to this effect. This works very well in B&W, Maybe the colours were not perfect because of the strong contrasts.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Malgo,
    These are probably more comfortable than the "real" ones where nomadic people have traditionally lived. You would probably prefer the less comfortable ones, without the plastic covered foundations and the electricity poles. ;-) It's a nice photo anyway, with a beautiful mountain in the background.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Claude,
    Well done. What is the likelihood to capture three persons in the air at the same time? Probably quite small. The sharp shadows and their yellow vests have a great effect.

    Hello Luis,
    A quite magnificent house with a number of elegant details. I like how you used the hedge and the sky to frame to view of the yellow building. With simple means you created a bright and colourful composition of a good taste.

    Hello Adrian,
    This looks like a good trekking area. The hill is quite steep but it doesn't look too difficult. I am sure the air is fresh and maybe there is a chance of meeting a bear. ;-) The photo is taken from a good POV with fine colours and a nice look at the sky.

    Hello Kari,
    It's strange, but I can't remember ever seeing a picture from this port. Considering its importance to Swedish economy that is a remarkable fact. It doesn't look very big (and it's not very beautiful). but I am sure it's efficiently run. This was probably a beautiful place before all this was built. It's anyway a good and interesting photo.

    Hello Dale,
    You make these ruins come alive with your description of what life was like here once upon a time. With the good note there is a good photo, bright and clear and with fine colours. The composition is uncomplicated, just straight on, and nothing else was needed.

    A nice photo with a strong local colour in more than one way. It's as interesting glimpse of a part of Jerusalem probably not seen so very often by foreigners.

    Hello Craig,
    Whether accurate or not, at least you make Edinburgh look very green and pleasant with a composition like this. Apart from the strong green impact I like the contrast with the grey dominance in the upper part. Actually, this photo reminds me of a picture I took recently here in Stockholm that I haven't yet uploaded but probably will. Buildings on one side and a lot of trees, but I also have water.
    Best wishes,
    Gert

    Hello Christiane,
    I would probably not be much interested in the things found inside the department store, but the exterior is wonderful. There are many super architectural details of great artistic value. It's a good photo with fine colours and great clarity.
