    Hi Chris,
    I love your reportage from so many little known places in Bulgaria. This is a beautiful one. The architecture seems quite unique. I cannot compare it with anything else. Very colorful too. It is amazing that one can travel even in our little Europe and find so many unknown places which are so beautiful!
    Excellent work,

    Ciao Silvio,
    Very attractive town with beautiful architecture. You have presented it at the most attractive time of the day. Fantastic framing with the lions! The lady passing by in middle of the square adds a lovely touch too.
    Excellent work!

    Hi Burak,
    Well spotted aspect of the Greek capital. I am like a child too, I love having plenty of colour especially in photos. Nice perspective with diagonal lines.

    Bonjour Nicolas,
    What a wonderful light and colors, everything seems pink and purple. The silhouette of the mountain looks amazing set against the extraordinary sky. It is nice that you have managed to preserve some details in the shaded areas. Fantastic effect, congratulations,

    Czesc Ryszard,
    rzeczywiscie bardzo interesujaca fasada. Jeszcze nie widzialem zeby az tak duzo tak bardzo "wystajacych" detali sterczalo z budynku tak blisko siebie. Swietna geometria interesujacy efekt powtorzonego motywu. Bardzo szkoda ze gorna partia jest nieco niewyrazna ale dobrze ze ja zalaczyles bo kazde pietro jest nieco inne i sprawia poczucie ogromnego bogactwa.
    Pozdrawiam serdecznie,

    Czesc Piotr,
    wspanialy widok z jednej wiezy na druga. Ja tez panietam ze bylem w Toruniu na jakiejs wiezy -chyba na wiezy ratusza. Wspanialy widok, dech w piersiach zapiera. Przede wszystkim to swiatlo i kolory! Dopisalo Ci niebo te obloczki sa najlepsze jakie sobie mozna zazyczyc. Znakomicie sie przentuje swiatynia ale rowniez ten widok na Wisle w oddali jest urzekajacy.
    Doskonala praca!

    Ciao Luciano,
    this looks actually quite funny. These people must have like each other so much, they wanted to stay together as close as possible. Funny thing in my neighbourhood (UK) they have build new houses with almost same density as in this photo :)
    Fantastic composition with the labyrinth of houses.
    Extraordinary place, excellent work!

    Hi Rob,
    fantastic composition. Nice merge of the real life outside and the shop interior with the reflections. That is a great idea which I did not have. I do have a picture of the church itself from quite a similar angle and in a great light with good colors but I did not post it since it lacks a bit of character. Here with the shop elements you added so much interest.
    Excellent work!

    Hi Bev,
    beautiful presentation of this extraordinary construction. People have such great ideas: to build a lift for boats, it sounds just ridiculous and I would probably not believe it just hearing it. But here you are: you provide the photographic evidence :)
    You had a wonderful day over there. Great sunny day, pretty colors.

    BTW I think I will try to get to Liverpool if Serghei is there on the weekend day. It would be great to meet you too...

    Hi John,
    well in Ireland they were painted green :)
    Not sure at what stage but they have identical shape.
    I wonder if they kept the gold or they went back to red after a while?
    Quite an original street scene and a very nice subject for the foreground. I believe the church behind it the Westminster Abbey: it feels so weird seeing that someone focuses on the mailbox rather than on the abbey here :)
    I wonder if you would get on your knees you could have captured a bit more of the abbey, but I guess you wanted to capture the moment of the ladies' curiosity which was fast gone.
    You had a marvelous weather in London and you have used it really well. Fantastic reportage!
    Excellent work,

    Hi Ike,
    beautiful architecture. I remember being impressed to see in Athens the Byzantine architecture for the first time in my life. These little churches are so cute and pretty! I might have been near this one too. Nice angle. I learn slowly that having people in photos in not such a bad thing.
    Very well done,

    Hi Abmdsudi,
    lovely structure but it is of course the sky being the highlight of this photo. Amazing pattern of the clouds with intense blue color to be found between few layers of clouds. Some of the appear quite dark. Fantastic effect!
    Now after second incident with shooting at tourists last year tickets to Tunisia but for some reason, I don't feel like going there :) So I am glad to see it in your collection.
    Excellent work,

    beautiful composition from a charming town. I like the light and polarized colors. The tower gives quite a unique touch, the lamp introduces some elegance. Buildings seem to make a turn.

    Hi John,
    you wrote "village where you can hear the silence". I laughed because in this moment the wind behind my window is so strong and loud that even being far from the town, the silence is not possible..
    Nice composition with the windmill. Naked trees allowed you to show the beautiful structure from this angle, since in the summer the view is probably obstructed by the leaves.
    Nice rural scene, it feels indeed peace and quiet.
    Very well done!!

    Czesc Krzysztof,
    gratulacje! 4000!
    Pamietam jak kiedys jhm osiagnal 1000 to wydawalo mi sie nieosiagalne, a Tobie stuknelo juz 4000!
    Jestem pod wrazeniem Twoich zdjec z Neuschwanstein. Swietnie wykorzystales tutaj moj ulubiony obiektyw, wyprodukowales wysokiej jakosci fotografie pokazujac tak znane miejsce w bardzo orginalny sposob.
    Czy to jest widok z Marienbruecke? Juz nie pamietam.
    Kiedys bylem na spacerze wyzej i widzialem ten zamek naprawde z lotu ptaka ale to byly czasy bez aparatu. Jak teraz bardzo zaluje.
    Szeroki punkt widzenia pozwolil Ci zamiescic skaly po obu stronach mamy poczucie wawozu, naprawde znakomicie oddales polozenie tego zamku. W dodatku pogoda dopisala i swiatlo i barwy sa po prostu doskonale!
    Wspaniala praca, gratulacje!!!

    Hi Daniel,
    wow this is quite a famous view but for the first time I see it so wide with the context of the foreground. Fantastic composition and of course quite an extraordinary light! Very very impressive picture. You have placed the column and the sharp tower exactly where they should be. Beautiful long shades make even the grass to feel three dimensional.
    Excellent work!!

    Bonjour Christiane,
    wow there is so much color here. I like the saturation so eye catching and yet kept very natural. Nice framing of the view with the two statues.
    The architecture emerging on the other side seems quite attractive and diverse.

    lovely street scene. I like the well saturated color of the performer T-shirt. It introduces so much life here. Your model has a nice pose. Very good idea to capture that and also with suitable background.

    Hi Rob,
    great use of the current political situation to place this attractive photo in an interesting context.
    Very impressive modern architecture and although the sky is grey it does have some features and the building itself is well lit too, so the title "50 shades of grey" would be appropriate too. In all the positive way.
    I like it.

    Thank you for your invitation for hot chocolate in Haarlem. It was more of a family visit and so I was with my wife and little daughter visiting another family with a child so till the last minute I was not sure if I will have time for any photo walk at all.
    But since my family lives there, may be I will visit the beautiful Haarlem again at certain point so may be next time we can indeed organize a TrekEarth meeting. Tue also said he lived for most of his life in Haarlem although recently moved out.

    amazing sky! I like the yellow orange tones, which seem to be also reflected in pavement. Snow decorates the scenery beautifully! Great compo with the high mountain diagonally dropping down in the frame.
    Excellent work!
