    Hello Kari,

    I've sailed to the North Cape along the western coast of Norway, but I know so little about the eastern areas of the Scandinavian Peninsula. I imagine this area is very very cold in the winter and covered in deep snow. Excellent photo.

    Warm regards,

    Bulent

    Hello Carlo,
    A very original composition but somehow a fitting symbol for today's tragic events in central Italy. Even on an ordinary day this would have been a good photo of a simple but elegant beauty. You made an excellent observation.

    Hello György,
    I remember this square very well, of course, but it looks different on a rainy day. The sun was always shining without mercy during my visit. But the rain creates a much more interesting atmosphere, while also seeming to clear the air. There is a very fine clarity which I like. I also like the look of the three girls crowded under one umbrella, one of them fortunately wearing red. I happen to know that the man in the background is just a statue, indifferent to the weather.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Malgo,
    Congratulations on nine years on TE. Will you be the only remaining active member next year? :-(
    What a relief to see another castle that the Swedes couldn't destroy. It is very impressive, and you shouldn't worry that the weather wasn't so good that day. The lack of sun really makes the colours very favourable. There is a fine balance between the green trees, the brown walls and the red roofs. And I don't mind at all that you took this photo while some persons were standing in front of you.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Alexandre,
    This is a very elegant composition in a perfect vertical shape. I love the desaturated colours and the silhouettes of the palms against the grey sky. The mighty waterfall is left in the background, surrounded by haze and framed by trees. You have done this very cleverly.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Rob,
    I don't know if you can get a feeling of vertigo from looking up, but the many lines going in all directions and the obvious great hight of these steel constructions almost make me a bit dizzy. The photo has a great graphic beauty but I am just as impressed by the construction as such, and the effort of designing and building it. It could have been a somewhat chaotic photo but you stabilized it by sticking one of the steel pillars firmly to the left side of the frame.
    Best regards,
    Gert

    Hello Danos,
    This is a lovely view of the town and its marina. The density of the town on the hillside makes it look very attractive. I imagine many nice, narrow streets waiting to be explored. The superb clarity and colours also make this photo worth a good long look.

    Hello Silvio,
    The news today was very sad and upsetting. Human lives matter most, but it is always also a tragedy when unique architecture is lost for ever. This photo will now be a memory of this beautiful church. You deserve a full green smiley for the high quality of the photo.

    Hello Ourania,
    It's interesting, but not surprising, that you still have photos left from that window in the hospital last year. The dark silhouette of the man and his long shadow are similar to those you showed before, so the special characteristics of this photo are the jagged shadow to the right and the white lines to the left. All these details make the photo graphically and artistically very attractive.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Dagmar,
    Welcome to TE. You start with a fine photo from a good elevated angle. The high rocks frame the view of the beach very nicely and there are lots of people who animate the view. The colours of the sand and the waterer beautiful.

    A beautiful scenery of rugged mountainsides of grey and green. The cattle provide a nice view of life and also give us some sense of the dimensions. The photo is crystal clear and the colours are beautiful.

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    I like the blurred hands of the man to the right, proving his skill at turning the skewers quickly to avoid any meat being too burned. You balanced the photo well with one man on each side, a display of meat at the bottom and a lot of smoke in the middle. I am sure this photo suits my taste in more than one way. ;-)

    Hello Bülent,
    Watching this photo at its largest size I can see the white marble tower quite well. But in any case this is an interesting photo accompanied by a good note that reminds us of the astonishing development of aviation. I wonder if even the Wright brothers had the remotest idea what their experiments would lead to.

    AS very nicely balanced composition of an interesting castle. I am puzzled by the black and blue pattern of the cupola, but it looks nice. It's a beautifully sharp photo with lovely colours.

    Hello Murat,
    I really like fish markets because there are so interesting to watch and because of the reminder of the sea that you mention. Sometimes the light is not so good but you made excellent use of the lighting in this place. Everything looks very appetizing and is nicely displayed and you captured the view from a good angle with some people included.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Jorge,
    I think such taxes for entering other states, or shipping goods between the states, are to be abolished because they slow down the economic development. Disregarding bureaucracy this is a fine photo which looks like India could have looked like many decades ago, except maybe for the car to the left. It is a timeless image, an impression which is underscored by the conversion to B&W.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Carlo,
    The artificial waterfall is located in a beautiful scenery where the grey rocks rising from the water provided you with a dynamic composition. There is a fine variety between rocks, water, trees and hills, all of which are bound together by the even line of water rushing down.
