    Ciao caro Carlo,

    This is indeed a beautiful fašade and you have composed this photograph extremely well. the colours are delightful and the bright flowers above add much to the appeal. But, in my opinion, it is the wonderful play of light and shade on this fašade which makes this picture so wonderful!

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Ricardo,
    What an amazing bike, although I suppose it is more to be regarded as a sculpture, or installation. This looks like an interesting place to visit in any case. It's a fine photo with excellent colors and light and a very original view.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Eleu,
    It's a remarkable but slightly strange place for a church. The architecture is interesting and the surroundings are awesome, but does the congregation find its way here? The colors are in any case stunning, including the green belt at the bottom.

    Hello Daniel,
    I think for bird lovers and nature lovers generally this area should be a must see.The trees standing in the water are very nicely reflected and the mild colours are superb.

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    Thank you for not using a flash here ;-). You have definitely captured the exotic atmosphere better through this exposure and the deliberate slight blur. The colours are very well maintained in the scanning process.

    A very elegant composition. The letter X is twice nicely connected with the letter U (or maybe C). The indoor light is well captured and there is a nice sprinkle of people and colours.

    Hello Malgo,
    Another very beautiful set of three photos. The scenery is enchanting and so are the colours, even on this cloudy day. It's really breathtaking and this composition is excellent, with all those flowers in the foreground and the green water below.
    Next time you should go to Spitsbergen in the Svalbard archipelago. But don't go hiking alone. The polar bears are non-vegetarian ;-).

    Hello Arunava,
    I saw this beautiful temple in 1972 and I am sad to hear of the devastation caused by the earthquake. You were there in time to capture the fantastic dome and tower with their bright colours, the painted eyes and the many prayer flags. It's a photo with a wonderful light adn great sharpness.

    Hello Bev,
    You were very lucky that day to get such great assistance by the weather. This is a magnificent photo with very attractive dark tones of grey and brown and an attractive combination of soft shapes of the clouds and the carefully designed curves and straight lines of the architecture. I fully agree with your choice of including nature in the categories.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Bev,

    Yes, a dramatic sky indeed! And how fortunate you were that there must have been a break somewhere in the clouds to allow a shaft of light to illuminate this modern building so beautifully against that sky. The effect is truly remarkable and you have captured it very well indeed.

    Thank you for the link in your note to details of the Imperial War Museum North - I just loved reading the reviews on the first page, one fellow remarking that he sometimes visited the place on the way to a football match because, although it wasn't so enjoyable, it was cheaper than spending a couple of hours in the pub!

    A Brilliant Photograph!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Another fine and colorful view from above. It is a very pleasant view and it's also a very well composed photo with the persons standing or sitting on the rock make a nice vertical line parallel with the side of the photo and the swimmers are surrounded by rocks on straight angles.

    Hello Carlo,
    This is a well observed beautiful wall and balcony. The flowers provide lovely strong colours and the small madonna statue is fine and very typical detail which I remember well from my early visits to Italy many years ago. I had never seen any such statues in the street in my Protestant country.

    This is a very attractive composition. The bundle of garlics is very elegantly arranged and the texture of the wood is well captured. I also like the old iron lock and the tones of lighter and darker wood. Besides, I love garlic. ;-)

    Hello Chris,
    Here is a part of Albania I didn't see. There are lots of attractive diagonals among the hillsides and the strange structures of the rocks. There are also many fine tones of mainly green, including the amazingly green water. I was in Shkoder but wasn't aware of these tours. Maybe they hadn't started in 2009.
    Best regards,
    Gert
