    Hello Dale,
    It's an uncomplicated but quite efficient composition. I like the contrasts of the green meadow and the brown tower. The blue flowers make the foreground nice and the hillside has given you a fine diagonal that splits the photo in two halves. It's very well exposed and saturated,
    Berst regards,

    Bonsoir, cher Mesut,
    Très bonne composition emplie d'humour, il faut reconnaître le talent de certains artistes de rue.
    L'image ressort très bien en version large.

    Hello Luciano,
    It's a nice photo but this time I rather prefer the WS. The cat and the sculpture look good together but the wall and the signs don't add much further, really.

    Hello Mariusz,
    If you had been like some of your compatriots on this site you would have slept in your car outside the palace to catch the perfect light and reflections ;-). Maybe this castle is so relatively little known because everyone is embarrassed to talk about it? How could it get such a name?
    Apart from that, this is a very good photo in an appealing square shape. What we see of the building is truly impressive, it's a very well exposed photo and the dark clouds seem to underscore the good light and intense colours of the façade and towers.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Angel,
    The nice hills with white buildings along the ridges were captured at the time of the day when the light was the most favourable. The warm and intense tones are beautiful and the cloud to the left is very pretty. I can't believe this was March. You would never see such colours and light at that time of the year in northern Europe. The photo has a wonderful clarity and sharpness.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Craig,
    From this angle it's hard to tell what the red sculpture is supposed to mean, but it's a very elegant composition of interesting red shapes on a black background. It's not necessary to always "understand" a work of art (I'm referring to this photo) as long as you like what you see and your imagination is inspired. (I pretend I didn't see the earlier photo.)
    Best regards,
    Gert

    Hej Erling,
    Det går knappast att ta en bild av ett vikingaskepp på ett enklare vis, och knappast snyggare heller. Det är en enormt slagkraftig bild av brunt mot blått som framhäver skeppets otroligt vackra utformning. Du har beskurit bilden väldigt snyggt också. Kan inte Bergen be att få låna originalet till nästa 17 maj? ;-)
    Hälsningar,
    Gert

    Hello Aleksander,
    It's a beautiful church and you handled the light very well and captured the colours that look quite natural. But the ceremony is so far away that we don't really see the couple and the priest. I think you should have zoomed in on them a bit more and maybe taken a vertical photo, capturing more of the ceiling and less of the floor.
    Kind regards,

    Bonjour, cher ami Silvio,
    Le mobilier donne déjà la qualité des lieux. Quant à ce lustre, il faut imaginer l'époque où seules les bougies éclairaient l'ensemble (coût très important, même pour l'épqoue).
    Belle ambiance restituée.

    Hello Abmdsudi,.
    You have photographed this elderly man from an original low angle (maybe another shot from your hip). It's a fine document of the old age of the man as well as the rather dilapidated building. The old house doesn't look good in a conventional way, but for the photo I love the pattern of irregularly sized squares and rectangles with various gritty colours. It looks a bit like some kind of modern art applied to an old building in rural China. Maybe a surprising reaction,. but the look of the wall is one reason why I really like this photo.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello John,
    I am as fascinated by these "blue hour" photos as many other members of this site, but I would never take a picture like this. Not because it wouldn't be fun but because I couldn't ever imagine carrying a tripod on my journeys. ;-) But I understand it could be worth the trouble, because the effect of dark blue sky and warm yellow light is often captivating, at least if the view as such is attractive. And this place is really perfect for this kind of photo with the lights so beautifully reflected in the black water. But although my attention is immediately drawn to the buildings at the end of the bay I am actually even more fond of the lower left corner showing a part of the marina and the walkway along the water. The colours are not as spectacular, but maybe because it's so much closer I can more easily identify with someone walking there in the romantic light of the night.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Alexandre,
    I could not ask for a more perfect beach of soft sand, trees and beautiful colours. Maybe there are big hotels and noisy bars just outside this view, but here you make it look like Paradise. For this composition the huge and compact cloud plays an important role as a balance to the turquoise and pink colours below. You found a good spot on the hill for this very nicely composed photo.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Will,
    This looks gritty enough to be genuine. It is a sad but understandable fact that "picturesque" places so often develop into tourist traps where money is the only thing in common between the locals and visitors. I like this photo for its quiet atmosphere and lack of Coca-Cola signs. The colours are good in spite of the rather harsh light. I would have liked to come here, but I always feel slightly uncomfortable when I just turn up close to people's homes for no other reason than my own curiosity. I prefer watching people in the cities where to some extent I can disappear in the crowds.
    Your note is highly interesting but mainly makes me sad at the shortsighted and careless policies of so many governments (and probably UN agencies and the World Bank as well).
