    Hello Takero,
    It's a fine photo of this procession in a nice rural environment. You shot it from a good angle and captured the physical expressions very well. The two small boys at the back are charming, mainly running around for fun, maybe anxious to grow upp fast so they can take part for real.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Claude,
    You cut the nearest girl's feet but you saved all the heads. ;-) It's a nice photo with lots of happy faces and childish spontaneity. Nice light and good depth too. This game used to be in the Olympics. I wonder why they took it away.

    Hello Serghei,
    Sepia is quite a good choice at any time, if the place is right. And an old castle and park, photographed in a way that could have been done 100 years ago, is perfect in sepia. This is a good composition in several horizontal layers with the dark trees dominating the middle section with lighter tones above and below.

    Hello Luis,
    It's a nice photo with fine buildings and very good colours. The café assures us that there is a shady place to relax with a hot or cold drink if the heat gets too intense. As always I like the inclusion of people. I don't know what this building with the funny tower is, but I can imagine it is the tourist office. Whatever the case, it is a very well exposed photo with excellent clarity.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Christiane,
    A very nice view of the beautiful buildings along the water. The red flowers add a superb line of bright colours and I also enjoy that there are some activities going on at the pier to the right. Fine buildings, nice colours and people is always a good combination.

    Hello Chris,
    I almost forgot to write about this photo. It's a great view of the narrow canyon and the village on top of the hill. Parts of the village are hardly distinguishable from the rocks. The cactus is a fine element in the foreground.

    A nice shot from a good position in central Vienna. I like the clarity and sharpness and the fine colours. The combination of white horses, black carriage and yellow wheels is very nice.

    Hello Ricardo,
    This is a very nice view with superb depth along the street up to the church. The hoses are very pretty and the people and bright vehicles add a lot of interest to the view. The colours are beautifully mild.

    Hello Ike,
    A complete painting like this, covering the entire bus, could hardly have been the work of ordinary graffiti artists. I think the bus company wants to humiliate the petty criminals painting the walls at night time. It's a fun photo anyway and well captured by you.

    There is not much water but the boats look very nice even in the mud. They are perfectly lined up and all have different colours. It's a simple but elegant and attractive composition.

    Hello Alexandre.
    This is a beautiful composition and a well timed photo. The man is well placed in the perfect light among the nice buildings, walking in the right direction. It's a very well exposed photo with an attractive clarity and fine contrasts. Possibly you could have cropped the left part with what may be the doors to a garage,

    Hello Luciano,
    Congratulations on a fairly perfect composition. This shows what a creative mind can make of a dull house and a few persons. It's a surprising place to find such perfect reflections. Surprising elements are often the key to a good composition. I will have to follow György's example and add this to my favourites.

    Hello Carlo,
    A photo of beautiful simplicity. The fine tones of green and the diagonals create a kind of dynamism in this empty scenery and the road cutting across a small part breaks the dominance of soft features and makes the photo more interesting. It is very cleverly composed.

    Hello Rob,
    Here's a picture I would have loved to take. I am fascinated by what you can discover when looking straight down at something. The effects are often surprising and amazing, especially when people are involved, like here. And when the view from above is as colourful as here, and with so much happening down there, the result is stunning. Of course you have also cropped this perfectly neatly. This goes to my favorites, no doubt.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Daniel,
    It's a nice street scene in the evening. The duomo is a fine background detail and an indication of which city we are seeing, but the photo is more about the reflections in the street, the hotel signs and the people out to enjoy the evening. It's a nice composition and well exposed.

    Hello György,
    There is quite a clash of architectural styles in this photo. Your fish-eye takes in a large part of central Frankfurt. There is also a lot of sky, which gives fine prominence to the nicely shaped clouds. It's a fine view of the city and a technically good photo, but maybe not your very most exciting one. But it's perfectly okay.
    Best regards,
    Gert

    Hello Lisa,
    How could I possibly write a comment that could match those lyrics by Percy French? (Yes I checked it up.) I can only say that it is a lovely scenery with great green tones and a fine play of shady and sunny areas. It's shot from a fine point and perfectly exposed.
    Kind regards,
