    Hello Bev,
    Other members of TE have shown similar bridges earlier and they usually have a simple but elegant beauty. That goes for this one too. The environment also looks nice so it's easy to understand why you like to come to this place.

    Hello Danos,
    Congratulations on showing your 900th photo. This is an excellent composition for the jubilee. The environment among the ruins is fascinating and very beautiful and the audience is seated along a very elegant curve. The light is skillfully handled.

    Hello Lars,
    It's a classic view but always very impressive. There are so many varied styles of architecture that a careful look at this view never fails to fascinate. The light is totally acceptable in spite of the harshness you mention.

    Hello Ryszard,
    This is an aesthetically superb composition with excellent use of light and darkness. The tunnel is perfectly placed and makes a fine curve into the composition. The pattern of light and shadows inside the tunnel is very attractive.

    Hello Craig,
    This is a perfectly all right composition with the blue boat and the buildings along the waterfront bathing in the sunshine. I guess there is a nice pub somewhere in that street making a visit even more pleasant. It's a bit strange, but to me this picture looks a bit tilted to the right, but checking it carefully it looks perfectly straight. Some kind of optical illusion, I guess.

    Hello Jorge,
    The old gate is quite simple but very stylish and with a fine light falling on it. There seem to be mainly very light vehicles in this street in a provincial Indian town.
    I think you have been traveling somewhere recently, but obviously this is an older photo.

    You have captured a fantastic and almost fairytale like contrast between green and almost black. It's a stunning view with a superb foreground and an impressive deep view towards the hazy distant mountains.

    Hello Malgo,
    Like Craig I want to congratulate you for reaching 100 000 points. Was this maybe also your 100 000'th tower? I get a feeling you didn't find any time for eating yesterday...
    The 366 steps were worth the effort. It's a very fine view of the old city. The church tower is well placed and the photo has an exceptional clarity and sharpness.
    Kind regards,

    You captured the view of the distant village and castle very nicely between the trees. The wooden fence makes a fine foreground, the colours are very good and the sharpness is superb.

    Hello Christiane,
    Salvador Dalí was sometimes a kind of clown, but he made some interesting paintings (and some not so good). This is an interesting set of photographs and two quite interesting drawings. Probably the colours of the room would not have added anything, so it was a good decision to make this in B&W (although it says "color" in the Photo Information).
    Kind regards,

    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.

    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.

    So narrow street along high houses are perfectly presnted via very nice panfocus / vertical appraoch.
    Lined up cars can be a good mesure to know how tall thses houses are.
