    Hello Costantino,
    One of the most beautiful buildings in Istanbul, maybe in the entire world. Your composition adds a lot of beauty and colours of the park between the Agia Sofia and the Blue mosque. It's a very nice photo.

    Hello Takero,
    This is a fantastic but rather terrifying fire-works. The effects and colours are superb, and it is a very well exposed photo, but it is almost shocking to see a man right in the middle of these explosions. It looks quite dangerous, but maybe I am just easily scared.
    Kind regards,

    Hi JJ,

    I thought this might have been Florence. I took a few shots of the same bridge. Might upload them one day. The repetition of the arched windows in the facade of the building at right on the opposite bank is superb. The arches theme is repeated by the bridge at right. The warm yellow and orange colours contrast well against the blue sky. Tfs.

    Hello Krzysztof,
    This photo made me so curious that I had to look this hotel up on the internet. It seems to be a very nice place, being recommended by visitors. This is also a fine photo with superb reflections in the rounded glass façade.
    Thank you, dear friend, for the Easter greetings. I was surprised but very pleased. I wish you a pleasant holiday too.
    Kind regards,

    Hello John,
    This is so incredibly neat and pretty, and the photo makes me think of a naive painting where the artist spent hours or maybe days making every detail look exactly real. I like the colours and light very much, The two little red signs may not be terribly important, but they keep catching my attention.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Gerrit,
    With a person dressed in red approaching you in a street every photo will be a success, especially if that person is pushing a cart filled with tomatos. I can't really see what is going on among the other men but I get curious. It's a quiet and simple street, but I like the perspective towards the forested hill further back. The colours and light are very good and well handled.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Nicolas,
    Again a lovely abstract photo painting from nature. The reflexions have created marvellous shapes of gold and silver. It's an excellently exposed and composed photo with an attractive square shape.

    Hello Ryszard,
    This is another fine photo of this ancient castle. Maybe this one is actually even more interesting than the last photo because we get such a good view of the interior. Besides, we also get a better view of the beautiful surrounding scenery. Technically this is another immaculate photo with superb colours.
    Kind regards,

    Bonjour, Ike,

    I passed through Genoa (Genova) in summer 2013 but didn't go to Portofino. Nice to see what I missed and it looks to be a lovely seaside fishing village, too. Good colour and sharpness. Nice reflections in the water. Amazing repetition of the boats. Tfs!

    Hello Carlo,
    These towers are famous, but you found a less common presentation of them through this vault. They are beautifully framed and the exposure is perfect in every part of the photo. It's a very pleasant composition.

    Bonjour Nicolas

    The three clumps of bright purple flowers resembling lavender add a vivid splash of colour to the scene. Good sharpness and excellent repetition of the stakes in the vineyard. The slope of the bg terrain imparts dynamism. Tfs.

    Hello Daniel,
    Iceland is magnificent but Norway looks just as fantastic, maybe even more. This is a beautiful view of the village below the mountains. No wonder it is world famous. The light is perfect.

    Hello Malgo,
    This architecture is incredibly beautiful, really among the masterpieces of human history. I like the view through the windows and it doesn't matter that it was impossible to get a perfect exposure both inside and outside. The interior is so much more important, and the view outside is nice just the way it is.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Brenda,
    I wish we could get a magnificent painting like this on the house where I live, instead of the ugly meaningless graffiti we are cursed with today. By including so much of the wall surrounding the painting you leave us in no doubt how much more beautiful this house has become.

    Hi Gert, The Canadian woman must have been very stupid if you write about it after 43 years. This made me laugh. Interesting photo, it seems there is end of the road here. Incredible the terraces going up here. How high it was here? Not far from the highest Himalaya peaks. I suppose that there are still problems with crossing this border to China.
    Although I do not like "globally" organized tours, I like such small local ones. It is more effective than to go everywhere with the local transportation. In many places it is impossible to go without organized tour, like in many places in Australia . Besides, I like meeting people when the group is small - less then 20 persons, or hear the guide.
    Wonderful sky. When I was in Chine, during the whole month I had blue sky only in Tibet (but the weather was good).

    Warm regards Malgo
