    Hello Malgo,
    If it's taken through the bus window the result is surprisingly good. Bus windows are usually not very clean. The subdued afternoon colours are very nice, and there are fine reflections in the water. It's a bit like a painting.
    Best wishes,
    Gert

    Hello Craig,
    I think a modern female Claus would prefer to call herself Ms Claus ;-).
    Maybe there are so many newlyweds on Santorini because they all think they will be the first ones. Or maybe they know there are so many snooping photographers on the island who will show them on the internet. People have so many strange ideas.
    In any case the red dress was very well chosen for the white wall under the blue sky.
    Have a nice time,
    Gert

    Hello Mesut,
    The colours seem to have been well kept during these 18 years. Maybe you could have made a slight additional sharpening. But didn't you buy another scanner just one or two years ago? As for the composition it's nice and simple. Beauty doesn't have to be complicated. I like the blue boat in the blue water. The homemade jetty looks a bit unreliable though.
    KInd regards,

    Hello Silvio,
    Wonderful statues of ice with fantastic orange tones on the figure to the left. The statues may be difficult to photograph but probably even more difficult to create. You and the artist both did very well. It's an impressive photo in every way.

    Hello Ana,
    Another fine sculpture in this unique outdoor gallery. I like the yellowish light from the unseen lamp and the reflections in the cobbled stones. The fog creates a wonderful atmosphere in the evening.

    Hello Ourania,
    This is a very successful conversion to B&W. There is a great play of light not just on the glasses but among lots of details inside and outside, as well as the general contrast between the bright light in the street and the dark interior. Among the many details creating a fine atmosphere I especially like the light surrounding the silhouette of the bald man in the lower part. I guess you are a source of embarrassment - or amusement - to your friends a lot of times, the way you keep photographing everything that comes in your way :-).
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Jean Claude,
    A nice view from a less usual angle. The well lit big wheel looks very nice against the dark blue evening sky. I like the silhouettes of people inside the cabins. With a composition like this nobody can overlook this photo among the 18 thumbnails.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    Here's another beautiful snapshot portrait. The light and the neutral background are remarkably perfect for just a quick grab. The old gentleman's relaxed and satisfied expression could probably never have been captured in a carefully planned and composed photo. He probably doesn't know that smoking kills, but he has reached a respectable age anyway, so I guess he wouldn't care.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Dwaipayan,
    It's a desolate and gloomy scenery in spite of an obvious wild beauty. There may be no connection between the three donkeys and the four persons in the distance, but these signs of life make me feel less lost in the vast emptiness.

    Hello Ryszard,
    Another fine piece of decoration for Christmas. I remember this place but it actually looks a lot nicer on an evening in winter than in broad daylight in summer. It's a very elegant and tasteful composition.

    Hello Ryszard,
    The sky is beautiful and the red light around the cathedral helps to create a fine atmosphere. The Christmas decorations on the lawn look rather funny but very attractive and original. It's a very well exposed photo with all sources of light perfectly captured. I see that the snow that hit Warsaw yesterday didn't reach as far south as Wroclaw.

    Hello Burak,
    A simple but nice scene from a market. Fruits and vegetables are always nice to watch, but a person does a lot to make the view more interesting. This boy is well placed and his yellow shirt matches many of the items for sale.

    Hello Carlo,
    The contrasts of light and darkness has created a fine atmosphere, which is greatly enhanced by the man addressing his God. The candles spread a warm and intimate light. I like how you watched the quiet scene from a respectful distance.
