    Hello Carlo,
    I fully agree, this statue looks absolutely amazing in this place. What a great idea to place it here. The building is interesting too, including the plants hanging down from the roof, but the combination with the oversized statue is sensational. You took the photo from a good angle and were lucky to have such fine light and the dark sky, which provides a perfect background to the statue.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Piotr,
    This is a fine photo with excellent light and colours and it's taken from an angle where we can't see much of the surroundings. I was here but I was rather disappointed that the church and the streets around it had been overtaken by tourism. I was more enthusiastic with another church a short distance away, where I was fascinated by a choir of nuns singing beautifully.
    Regards,

    Hello Jorge,
    This is something I don't recognize. Maybe it didn't exist 30-40 years ago. It is a very elegant tower and the photo is very appealing. I like the fine balance of dark grey, green and two tones of light brown.

    Hello Rob,
    The painting is fascinating but I think your arrangement of the four photos is even more fascinating. You made a very intricate composition which really requires a good and careful look. Did you have this idea immediately while you were taking the photos, or did it come to you as a flash while you were considering what to do with the pictures?
    Kind regards,

    Hello Ryszard,
    This is a well composed photo of the church, the cemetery and the surrounding nature. The church looks very beautiful with its fairly simple but elegant design and lack of unnecessary decorations. I also like the white wall surrounding it. This is a marvellous treasure for a small village in the countryside.

    Hello John,
    This is an excellent composition. The scenery is stunning, the colours are perfect and the woman adds life, dimensions and interest to the view. The rough diagonals of the huge rocks, with the blue water seen between them, give a fine balance to the composition. I like this very much.

    These ruins look fantastic against the pink evening sky. The person to the left makes the difference between a nice photo and a very good photo. To me his presence means a lot.

    Hello Malgo,
    Another fine scenery, and today I think you have been very careful not to oversaturate the colours. Looking twice at yesterday's photo I think the red was rather too strong. This looks much more natural. But why don't you like people in your photos? This one is nice, but I prefer the WS with the fisherman. The scenery is also just as beautiful in that photo, but he adds another dimension.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Philippe,
    This is a nice view with a little difference from Paris. The red and white parasols add an unexpected feature to the well known view along the Seine. It's a pity that the water is probably not safe for swimming, but it is still a pleasant photo with fine colours.

    Hello Nicolas,
    You have captured this bad weather with incredible colours. The dark clouds look very dramatic with a magnificent light breaking through in some places. The dark scenery of the mountainside looks like in an old painting. The rainbow is stunningly bright and clear.

    Hello Bev,
    I am sure the Nordic Vikings who arrived in these areas maybe one thousand years ago must have felt at home. This is quite similar to northern Scandinavia, including the not so good weather. This place certainly motivated a short stop. The scenery is captivating and the road and fence connect us with the green hills in the background. The sky was grey but the light was still very good.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Jean,
    I was surprised to read your note. I was sure this was a close-up of some strange mushrooms or plants I was not familiar with. It is a highly original artwork of a kind I have probably not seen before. The photo has good colours and the more is informative. I wondered until the last paragraph about the size, which in this case was an essential piece of information. But even after finding the Swedish word for the original plant I still have no idea what it is. ;-)
    Kind regards,

    This is a fascinating view down the steep street and the fine old buildings and with the dark steep rock as a background. It's a very cleverly composed photo and in the far background there is a very nice slightly hazy light.

    Hello Ourania,
    This is truly a delightful photo. It's a very distinct composition with wonderful colours. The yellow towel is flying in the wind like a flag against a perfect background of blue tones. The large almost round tree provides fine shade for those who have wisely decided to get out of the intense sun. It is also a magnificent dominant feature of the photo. The carefully handled light contributes to making this a beach photo far above the average.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Pavle,
    You have shown us many of these abandoned houses in your home town. It is sad to see them but this development of society can probably not be stopped. You do well to record what is going on, especially since you do it with fine colours and perfect sharpness.

    You spotted these reflections well and cropped the photo cleverly. There are not so many colours but the reflections and slight movements of the water has created wonderful tones of blue and green.
