    Hello Jean,
    It's a great view of the long pebbly beach and the distant hills. There are so many activities going on at the various levels, it's like watching a Pieter Brueghel painting. I like this very much.

    Hello Dale,
    It's a slightly unusual beach photo with so many persons playing in the wet sand instead of swimming in the sea or just lying down to catch a tan. They produce fantastic reflections and the two large rocks provide a great background. I like the shape of the photo and the very good light and colours.
    Kind regards,

    A well timed photo and a good composition of bright colours, dark background and a person walking by. It's a quite attractive street photo with a very good light.

    Hello György,
    Antiquities and vegetables sound like an unusual combination. I hope the tomatoes were not so old. It's a nice photo of very different kinds of buildings on the market square. There are lots of black dots in the sky, and they don't look like distant birds. Dirty lens?

    Hello Christiane,
    Looking at the flags this could either be in Poland or in the United Arab Emirates. This kind of skyscraper could be found anywhere, and probably also Hard Rock Café. When I was in Baku recently my trick to find my hotel in a narrow alley was to look for the HRC in the nearest major street. The world is getting smaller, and more similar everywhere. This is a bold and eye-catching composition of very strong features against a blue background.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Malgo,
    I guess this was not taken during the disappointing light show, but this "show" of patterns and shapes of various colours on nearly all the façades is impressive enough of the ordinary look of Hong Kong Island. It is quite a beautiful cityscape, especially with the mountain in the background showing that there is still a large piece of nature inside the big, crowded city. It is a spectacular and beautifully exposed photo.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Luis,
    An excellent photo with a very suitable horizontal shape. The top of the volcano is perfectly reflected in the pond, where two birds create life and make the foreground more interesting. I like the repeated pattern of brown and blue horizontal areas and the fine hazy light on the mountainsides.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Stephen,
    This photo has an interesting combination of height, created by the pillars, and depth created by the benches and the pattern of the floor. The good light and fine sharpness allow us a careful look at the many exquisite decorations and the persons praying at the small chapel.

    Hello Philippe,
    This is a very well composed photo characterized more by the three big trees and their shadows than by the view of the castle. I like the brown path between the green trees and the yellow lawn. The castle is more like a fine decoration in the background. It's a good approach to make this kind of less expected composition.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Krzysztof,
    This is not pretty, but it is quite interesting and Craig will probably love it. I would hesitate to get inside this house, in case something would fall on my head. It's a fascinating look at decay.

    You used the rounded shapes brilliantly for these interesting reflections. I like the mainly blue and green tones but also the inclusion of brighter colours at the top. Another superb observation.

    Hello Chris,
    Yes, this is probably a less often shown angle of Gamla stan, with the dirty canal in the foreground. I used to walk along that bicycle lane by the water on my way to work, but after a few years it got too boring so I went by bus instead. The canal does well as a mirror and the view of the buildings is nice, and well exposed.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Bev,
    You hardly leave any room for me to write my own comments, because you have already mentioned the play of light and the "diagonal, vertical and horizontal lines, of differing thicknesses, all working together to create this pattern". What else can I add? Nice contrast of blue and brown. ;-)

    Hello Lars,
    What a very nice bridge. The pylons have some great decorations that I would rather have expected to see on the façade of a building in a rather posh district. The forest of boats and masts below it is also quite fascinating. I am sure it's not as bad as it looks from this perspective, but I instinctly wonder how some of these boat owners will find their way out. It looks very crowded. It's another bright and interesting photo from this city which I think is a lot less known in Europe than many cities in the USA.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
