    Hello Gerrit,
    This flat area won't offer the same challenge to a biker as the hills of Uganda, but I am sure you had a nice ride here anyway. There should be lots of interesting sights along the water and in the hamlets. You have captured the quiet and laid-back atmosphere very well and the colours are great.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Adrian,
    This is a lovely rural scenery dominated by the two viaducts, of which the nearest one seems to be considerably much older than the other. There is a fantastic variety of green tones on these hills and they all look very natural. The photo is perfectly exposed and has a very good clarity.

    Witaj Mariusz,

    A superb interior shot of the interior of the mosque in Nicosia. The composition (especially with the inclusion of a worshiper), the brilliant colors, and the obsidian sharp resolution all collaborate to make this a first rate photo.

    Hello Maciej,

    Informed by a first rate note, your rendition of Bocca della Verità is very good present for Trekearth. We all like to think we are not superstitious, and as a physics professor I am especially resolved not to fear such myths. But, I must admit that before I've slipped my hand into the Bocca, I've thought of what I might have said recently that was not the entire truth, that I must be ready to pull my hand out reflexively if there is motion...

    In B&W especially, without any distraction from colors or other people, this is perfect.

    Warm regards,

    Bulent

    Hello Mariusz,
    This is of course not a street-photo, but it is related to that kind of photography: a human being animating an artificial, constructed environment, and a human being becoming more interesting through the environment. It's an excellent photo, where the floor and the man reading the Quran (it couldn't be an ordinary novel, could it?) breaks the very strong vertical pattern created by the pillars and the mihrab. There is a good balance between the almost black and white left part and the colorful dominance of the mihrab. The right part is a bit overexposed but cropping it would probably have made the composition too tight on that side.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    This is a "calendar like" expansive photo of the Forum Romano — sharp, colorful and well composed. Moreover, you've been gracious to provide a short but informative note.

    Hello Ourania,

    The long climb up looks strenuous.

    After a Greek lady and her son visited us for a couple of days, our understanding of the Greek economy is colored by her observation. I hope this photo is not symbolic of the future of the Greek economy... after the results of the divisive referendum a few days ago.

    What a dramatic photo, Eleu. There is a funnel like formation, heavy rain, a patch of blue and a sunburst effect in the same frame.

    Hello Eleu,
    I thought scenes like this could only be created in Hollywood. It's rather shocking to realize this is real :-). It looks very dramatic and dangerous and it's a relief to hear that no major damage was done. It's a very well timed photo and you had enough time to get all the settings of the camera right.

    Hello Nicolas,
    A little bit different this time, but still in the green nature. You found the rabbit in a perfect spot and managed a photo with excellent exposure and sharpness. It makes me feel so close I could almost touch the rabbit. A very fine photo in beautiful surroundings.

    Hello Robert,
    A composition could hardly be more simple than this, and that is probably why I like it. It's rather fascinating to watch the railway tracks going straight through the wilderness, seemingly disappearing into nothing. I like the view of the grey and brown line in these lush green surroundings. The fine light and sharpness and the well saturated colors all make their contributions to the photo.
    Best regards,
    Gert

    Hello Ourania,
    The B&W underscores the graphic beauty of this simple but eye-catching composition. The woman is well placed by the nice curve and she is the focus of an area with excellent contrasts and a fine greyscale. Whether intended or not I see the title as a kind of metaphor for the present situation of your country.

    Hello Luciano,
    The light has reduced the men almost to silhouettes, which to me is the secret behind the fine atmosphere of this photo. The dark city skyline and the reflections on the water on the right side also contribute a lot. It's a fine photo with a nice variety of postures among the anglers.

    Hello Ryszard,
    The colours of this view are stunning. There is a beautiful gradual change of tones from the yellowish dominance at the bottom to the blue dominance at the top, with some red on the right side. The lines of trees and the differently colored fields give the flat view a fine rhythm.
    This is not a photo that needs improvement, but just for the fun of the experiment I made a workshop with a tighter crop, concentrating almost entirely on the colours of nature. Please don't take it as criticism.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Takero,
    A very nice photo. You used the narrow DOF perfectly to place the sharpness on the flower. The rest is left in a blur, but not more than we can seethe shape of the pagoda and immediately understand the cultural context of the photo. The blur tells u,s all we need to know.
