    Nicely shot, Burak. The way the dark interior frames the opening for the train makes the train extra special. Well done!

    Lovely photo in its simplicity, Peter. The smooth water and colors really set off those tree roots. An effective addition is the reflection of trees at the top that helps to frame your work in a nice way.

    Another fine photo, Nevyan. The tree is perfectly placed to invite the eye to look at the whole scene. I also like the square format! You might experiment with the colors under and around the clouds. You probably captured them accurately, but they look just a tiny bit muddy to me. Super work!

    This is a very interesting street photo, Wolfgang. The contrast of the hurrying woman and the photos of glamorous women is very engaging! Super composition makes this very effective.

    I like this very interesting scene, Khoa. It makes a pleasant scene. The close perspective is a good choice and to only have the photo crowded with houses. Some of the lights have a starry effect. You might experiment with emphasizing them a bit.

    This has a lovely point of view, Justinas! You might experiment with the sky and trees in the background, as they look an odd color to me, but the photo is really striking with that amazing long exposure!

    Yes, the pixelization from enlargement created some weird artifacts. Nevertheless, I like this old tree and the angle you had chosen from which to photograph it. I suspect this is why photographers all have bad backs, eh Peter? You might try experimenting with idealizing the sky. It is not a lovely blue on my computer, and a little tweaking with color might help. Or try it in black and white? Anyway, it's a fine photo, and enjoyed gazing at it.

    It's hard to resist a good sunset, Jose! This is not only lovely colors, but the composition is also very effective, with the brightest light in a very effective spot.

    I think the plane wing adds some interest to this shot, Neyvan. While it's a lovely landscape and well composed, the wing really helps tell the story here.

    The lighting does such a great job at setting this couple apart. I also really enjoy how the fuzziness combines with a warm in the background colors, while the subjects are in cooler light. Lovely composition, too.

    Nicely captured to show how much it is a part of the town. Even the scale fits the town. It doesn't tower above it in way that sets it that much apart. It all comes down to a nice human scale in this quaint street. Well done.

    I like both of these shots of Harpa. I really like the perspective in this one, a forced one, as the lobby narrows and proceeds into the distance. The light is managed well, with the outside light not overexposing the windows and the darks not being too dark in the rest of the interior. Nicely done.

    Good point of view for both gates. Both streets angle nicely from here to direct us around the scene. I love all the buildings that all seem to tilt and their own angles, including the two towers. It has a cartoonish feel of an idyllic old village scene. I wonder how the scene would look if you were in the center, along the railing, if the split would look stronger. Although the way the two roads converge from this point creates a strong feeling of two different places mashed together, which I like.

    Cool spiral staircase. I like the tones you have in this and the way the detail is captured. It looks like a fairytale castle's stairs. One thing that I see while looking at this is perhaps to have been a little to the right or leaning the camera out a little more to get the bottom more in the lower left corner to create that diagonal as it spirals down into the darkness. But I still like it. I've had it open for a while, while I work, coming back to it over and over to examine it and get drawn in by it.
