    Hi Serge
    That's certainly an eye-catching work of art and you've presented is beautifully here. Your choice of black and white works brilliantly and the crop is very well chosen

    Hi Alexandre
    That's a beautifully ornate building and historically an important place too. Great photo of it under really good light with a great depth thanks to the street to the left

    Hi Takero
    Very happy and well taken group portrait, the effect of the lens in such a wide group is really interesting, both on the women and in the background buildings, it's an almost magical effect

    Hi Silvio
    Epic photo, the arch is the icing on the cake framing this movie worthy scene. The sky has excellent drama and light and shadow, while the upward view makes the castle seem so imposing. Very cool photo

    Hi Denis
    A perfect way to present this little church. The wall leading to it and it's striking red door. The light is perfect and the whole area around the church matches is style really nicely

    Hi Serge
    A beautiful palace and your composition here brings it out to the best. The scene is broken in thirds, the flowers, the grass, and the building / sky, each element very different but perfectly complimentary. The size of the building is captured really nicely too, not easy in a building so long

    Hi Ourania,
    This close view does indeed show the building needs some help, but it's great inside the frame with the cafe seats. I think you mentioned that one these was a craft shop and cafe, a perfect use for them. I hope the character filled little building finds a living new owner

    Hi Ourania,
    When I was little I used to buy red licorice that looked like this hanging in the shops. Your photo has brought back to me a sensation of taste I haven't had in a long time, very cool

    Hi Angel
    This beach looks pristine, clean and welcoming while the sea is so beautifully clear. I imagine the locals must be very happy and proud to have a facility such as this.

    Hi Gyorgy
    Great black and white and your title sounds like a spy movie :) thanks for the note to explain the scene too, it makes more sense knowing what's happening here. You really are skilled in candid mono urban photgraphy. I learn a lot from your posts

    Hi Walter
    Probably an everyday scene in this place but my eyes are accustomed to a lot more grey. Both in the sky and the buildings so this is a cheerful and compelling photo to me, especially the color in the sea. Beautiful photo

    Hi Carlo
    Very creative crop to turn this urban view into almost an abstract artwork. I struggle to crop buildings this perfectly, so really can appreciate this. Great colours and reflection too

    Beautiful modern sculpture, I love the reflective surface and how it combines with the more traditional statue. It looks like a vast skyscraper from a distance

    Hi Pierre
    You have some really interesting church buildings on your gallery. Yet another here. Most of the building looks traditional but that task chimney is strange. Giving an almost industrial feel to the place. Unique design

    This looks like a fairly nerve wrecking path to walk, you did capture that feeling so well. Looks like a fascinating place to go walking
