    Hello Denis,
    These lights are very well captured and they have created a fantastic atmosphere. The mainly yellow triangle makes a fine contrast to the dark opposite half of the composition, which in its turn is nicely divided by the horizon. The distant white ferry is a fine little detail. This is a very attractive and very well exposed photo.

    Hello Burak,
    The maze of flat roofs on mud coloured houses seems almost endless. Only in the far background is a glimpse of higher and more modern buildings. I think the overwhelming effect of this cityscape would not have been the same with the sky included, so that was a smart way of editing the photo.

    Hello Luciano,
    "Overpriced and tourist-oriented without any disguise" doesn't sound very exciting, but this view looks very nice and the beach doesn't seem too crowded. The small church is no doubt the nicest feature. It looks very pretty and charming. I like the darker tone of the shallow water making a curve along the view and giving a nice balance to the composition, along with the nearest bathers. The light and colours are superb, as always.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Christiane,
    Strange but attractive rocks of a kind seen here and there around the world. The road making a curve through the small tunnel is a nice feature of the composition, as well as the sun-lit mountains in the distance.

    Hello Ana,
    Another piece of fabulous graffiti. Just imagine being greeted by this friendly face every time you return home after a boring day at work. The flowerpots and the laundry are nice complements from the realities of daily life.

    Hello Aleksander,
    This is a lovely composition, very photogenic. The lamppost, the trees and the church tower are all fine vertical accent that keep the composition together. There is also a very fine correspondence between the old grass in the foreground and the colours of the buildings and their reflections. The photo has a softness, partly thanks to the clouds, that is very attractive.

    I had been there quite some years back...but this is definitely one of the most innovative POVs I have seen from Sanchi stupa. The famous gate is visible right of centre, but the curved path draws our eyes right into the picture. Well done!

    A very nice and warm scene..both from her face witha radiant smile and her extending hand which seems to denote eagerness to touch and extend friendship. Your framing, off-centre has been very well done.

    Hello Mesut,
    Once again I am very impressed by your clever scanning. I know from experience that it's not so easy to have a shiny white area so well exposed as this, with all the fine tones of the shadows so well maintained. The same goes for the fine whirling snow on top of the hill. The sharpness is perfect and I find no traces of noise. Besides, it's a great view of the mountainside and the ski-lift.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Jean-Claude,
    The roads between the vines have given a very nice rhythmical pattern to the view. The orderly lines contrast nicely to the slightly more natural character of the hillside across the river. The colours are very pleasant, with several fine tones of green.

    Hello Roland,
    A very smart composition. I like the connection between the graffiti at the bottom and the couple at the top. The curving dark steps between the white walls create a very good connection and is very eye-catching. The palm tree is another fine detail of the composition which creates a good counterbalance to the two persons.

    Hello Serghei,
    Congratulations on your successful work today. I also managed to post a photo again. It seems the technicians have solved the problems with the ', but they still haven't managed the strange, "un-English" letters.
    I love this almost monochrome view of the snow-clad town and its many narrow alleys. The greyness has created a strange and inspiring atmosphere. I wouldn't be surprised to find a vampire in one of the little squares. I was briefly in this place, but it looked very different in June.
    Kind regards,

    A very good low perspective of the yellow flowers in the blue hour. I like the connection between the green stems and the green lights in the upper floor windows. It's a very well exposed photo with fine colors.

    Hello Krzysztof,
    This is a rather surprising window. There is such an intricate pattern of stained glass and wrought iron, which is strangely surrounded by the simple blue frame. It was a good idea to include some of the street, which makes us understand the location, and actually makes the window look even stranger :-).

    Hello Ourania,
    This is a clever composition, not least because you waited enough to have those men stepping into the view. They contribute well to the photo with their presence, and they also provide a sense of movement. I get a similar feeling of movement from the stretched rope, which seems to drag me onto the Dimitrios. You also managed to integrate the small boat very well. The thick rope from the big boat seems to continue straight away through the thinner rope from the small boat. I notice, by the way, that the café advertises in English even in the off season.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Bev,
    I know you must have had fun taking this photo. It's a clever composition, where the function of the construction is almost lost among the zigzagging lines and differently coloured details. As you have probably noticed I love to have people included in a lot of photos, but in this case people would have spoiled the almost abstract beauty.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Pavle,
    A very nice composition of the curving river lined by the dark, shaded wall on one side and the light wall in the sun across the river. There is a fine view towards the bridge and the outskirts of the city. The light clouds are very nicely reflected in the water.
    Kind regards,
