    Hi Danos,
    very interesting presentation. I have heard about it of course but it is interesting to read about details and see the reportage photo here.
    The scene looks quite elegant with the ladies looking like goddesses in the dresses which fit also the decoration of the scene.
    Great moment, very well captured,

    Bonjour Cricri,
    yes I suppose this is a typical landscape from a western movie.
    Farm house in the middle of nowhere.
    Very attractive of course with the red rock formations in the distance and the red earth in all directions.
    If you could just switch the SUV cars to horses it could pretend to be an old photograph :)
    Excellent work,

    Hi Serghei,
    I remember well this spot. I have mentioned that the building in the centre is Liverpool Town Hall. It was taken from this point. We have passed the Queen Victoria Monument.
    The weather was quite miserable, yet you did a great job presenting it here. First of all I don't remember anyone showing the Liverpool town hall before.
    The car and bus are a bit annoying but the also add a specific touch.
    I like your black framing. To be honest I would always frame my photos in black, but I am too lazy :)
    Even though the sky was quite bad, the place looks attractive here.
    Great postcard-like presentation exactly as I like it.

    I do feel like we were may be going in some places too fast and in other too slow. May be we have spent too much time at the demonstration or in the museum? But it was challenging having a limited time :)

    Hi Ana,
    this is so beautiful!
    Fantastic composition with the lone tree as the main theme.
    Everything seems perfect here: the rye field in the foreground, the clouds which seem to be posing here for you.
    Amazing natural and well saturated colors!
    It works so relaxing.
    Excellent work!!

    beautiful bridge, nicely set amidst the nature. Great color of the vegetation. I like also how you have included the tables in the foreground they always add a relaxing touch.
    Great work!

    Bonjour Cricri,
    I suppose this is a place where it is worth to stay for a while. Sadly I was in rush to visit more places so after a short stay there, may be 1 hour or so I had to head further. I see though that staying around for the sunset is a great idea. It is a wonderful spot. The rock formations are so colorful and their shapes so unique.
    Here a fantastic composition with people enjoying the view. The silhouettes are quite impressive, they look great set against the beautiful sky. In particular the couple.
    Excellent work!!!

    Hi Chris,
    Bulgaria appears as a truly beautiful country in your reportage. You really encouraged me to visit it someday.
    This is such a great composition here with stairs and rocks making an attractive introduction to the house on top of the hill. The geometry is fantastic!
    Wonderful weather too with great light and well saturated colors.
    Excellent work!

    great composition, very well spotted. I like the silhouette of the man. I like the light. We can also spot the characteristic elements of the Birmingham Library at the window.

    Bonjour Cricri,
    wonderful spot, in fact I have a similar scene in my collection HERE.The color of the earth is truly extraordinary. You have captured it well with the motif of the road well used in the foreground leading eye to the centre. Amazing quality. What strikes me is that it seems so empty. I think when we were driving this road we were almost alone there most of the time.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Craig,
    I am not sure if you refer to the lady in red or the drying T-shirt, may be both.
    Indeed the red color looks quite interesting on this well saturated blue background.
    Incredible place, very photogenic! I like the labyrinth of passages, houses etc
    It is always a very interesting subject.
    Surprisingly there is a fragment may be of a newer structure in the foreground which is not painted yet. I wonder if they are going to match the color when the structure is ready?
    Very well seen and captured,

    Hola Luis,
    I have missed this one. Very attractive presentation of marina. Nice composition very well enhanced by the reflection. Great clarity and sharpness.
    I think there is a big chance I will indeed go to Mallorca next year since it is also one of the cheapest destinations and next year I may need to watch the budget tighter.. In any case I think I will be happy there :)
    Very well spotted here,

    Bonjour Cricri,
    wow this is such a beautiful landscape. I like very much the panoramic view here. The rock formations across the lake look like a mini canyon. Fantastic shapes and colors, this is such an extraordinary place.
    Great quality I can stare at the photo and look at the details so clearly seen to the horizon.

    Hi Bev,
    well I had it quite recently, although my daughter will have 4 years very soon. Time is passing by so fast.
    Congratulations! It must be a great satisfaction to become a grandparent. I will need to wait a while to experience it but I am not in hurry...
    What this photo teaches me is that I don't take enough pictures of my daughter. This is very well done, the child was captured in a nice pose, plus he has a great colorful jacket which adds so much to the scene.
    Very well done!

    Czesc Krzysztof,
    bardzo ciekawa konstrukcja, nie pamietam tego to musi byc stosunkowo nowe bo odkad sie wyprowadzilem z Monachium pare razy odwiedzalem to miasto I tego nie widzialem.
    Zabawne bo wspominasz w notce ze Max Planck Society ma tam research, a to tam wlasnie pracowalem :) w Instytucie Maxa Plancka.
    Nawet teraz to brzmi dla mnie doniosle szczegolne w obliczu innych rzeczy ktore robilem pozniej...
    Bardzo pieknie to pokazales, pewnie nie udalo Ci sie znalezc za bardzo info co to jest?
    Pozdrawiam serdecznie,

    Hi Serghei,
    wow, I can see you had a great weather in London indeed! The sky is fabulous!
    I am so jealous. Such sky makes an enormous difference for photos.
    I guess I have to keep trying to get to London together with the sun.
    Very attractive panoramic view over the city. There are several recognizable buildings clearly seen.
    The boat adds a lovely touch.
    33 countries sounds like a lot to me, of course people like emka make this number feel very small but I am at 26...
    Great pic from London!

    Hi John,
    these canal photos of yours are so attractive. You manage to make them so beautiful.
    Here of course the yellow flowers are the highlight. Interestingly they stick to one side of the channel.

    Bonjour Nicolas,
    this is a very strangely cut tree. Nevertheless the composition is very beautiful!
    Blooming trees make a wonderful foreground behind which we see the vineyard and further on the horizon snow covered mountains.

    Ciao Luciano,
    I love browsing through souvenir shops, although most of souvenirs end up in a box since I actually rent a house so I cannot make a permanent display.
    Recently I stick to fridge magnets which are small... or postcards.

    It seems you are the worst type of tourist: instead of purchasing this lovely pictures to support the local community, you take a picture of them stealing the pleasure of being able to look at them but without paying for it :)
    I think it is a great idea!
    :)

    Hi Lars,
    wow this is very good!
    Even I can recognize the Damrak and the Dam square.
    Nice distance it allowed you to show a context of the dam but at the same time it is close enough to recognize it.
    Fantastic quality!
    So it was a sightseeing flight?
    That makes sense of course.
    Great work!
