    Bonjour Claude,
    ha ha!
    I had a chance to visit Blackpool quite recently as well. It is quite a distance for me because the road is not great that way for me but I really wanted to see the tower :)
    Great idea here to go under the pier. Although the pier looks quite ugly from this angle.
    I see you got a great weather over there too.
    Very well done,

    Hallo Wolfgang,
    this is quite an extraordinary photo.
    The bad weather and scarce light resulted in an effect as if it was an old photography from the dark past of this place. And there are crowds of tourists which pretend to be former visitors.
    It looks quite scary.
    Interesting reportage!

    Hi Pavle,
    fantastic sunset photo!
    I like the natural colors of the sky. The clouds were so nicely aligned, and you had some plane trail as well. Also the sun rays seem to make a lovely pattern at the top.
    Excellent work!

    Hi Burak,
    although I realize that Iceland is a beautiful country with plenty of photo opportunities I hesitate to go there. I live in a rainy, cloudy, windy England so for limited vacations which I have I prefer to pick warm countries to show my daughter how the sun looks like.
    But I can understand that for you who have sun on daily basis this is an attraction to be in a cold country :)
    Very interesting landscape, we can feel it is cold!!
    What I would try to do here is may be to increase the contrast a bit -I think this could make the picture a bit more vivid.
    Very well done,

    Bonjour Cricri,
    great idea to present the fašade of Notre Dame in the context of the river. The extra bonus are the two colorful busses.
    May be I should consider such an open-air bus ride in Paris? With a little child I can visit plenty of places without dragging her behind me... Or the boat tour is better, you did it right? Because there was the photo from the boat.
    Great capture of this famous place in a very natural color palette.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Luis,
    this is one more place which I will have no chance to visit. I like very much your composition here. Perfect frontal symmetry works optimal. The framing with the arch was a great idea!
    Beautiful place and a wonderful presentation. I didn't go there yet but watching your photos I am afraid I may need to go there one more time to be able to see all the places...
    Excellent work,

    Hi Abmdsudi,
    very attractive pattern indeed and having two similar motifs worked perfectly here.
    Great colors the ladies seem to complement each other.
    Very well seen and captured!

    Hi Chris,
    just yesterday I noted that very near Eilat (23km) there is this slot canyon so similar to the popular Antelope Canyon, I guess you are on it already? It is called Red Canyon.

    You are right: the water exhibits several layers with different color here. Extraordinary effect very well captured.
    I don't like the fence but just behind there seems to be a restaurant?
    I think you would be better off cutting away the left part completely.

    This must be quite an interesting place to be!

    Hi Takero,
    fantastic work! I like the make up, the traditional clothes and shoes. You have captured the lady with a nice face expression. Very suitable shallow depth of the field.
    Excellent photography!

    Hi Lars,
    I am not sure what is going on but on some days I cannot open your new photos. I wasn't able to open most of your new photos right now hence I reach to the older one here.
    This is a brilliant photography. Classic yet so perfect! The sharpness is amazing light is fantastic and of course the composition combining modern fragment of the pyramid with the Louvre old style works perfectly.

    Excellent work! It deserves 190 points!

    Hi Paul,
    you have achieved quite an extraordinary effect here. I would be able to tell if it is late or early, night or blue hour? The surrounding area seems quite dark which makes the group of buildings to stand out of the picture.
    Thanks to a great clarity and sharpness we can appreciate the details of the architecture in particular one attractive church, with quite an unusual name indeed.
    The picture has an amazing mood!
    Beautiful work!!

    Bonjour Christiane,
    last time I visited Paris with my wife I have planned the whole trip. I asked her if she can wait with shopping till the last day. I wanted to do the sightseeing first and then leave her the whole day for shopping. On the last day my wife was exhausted after the intense sightseeing so she had no more energy even for shopping :) That is an example of good strategic planning!

    Beautiful shopping centre impression here. I like the yellow and red colors dominating the scene. The dark silhouette of people add a nice touch as well.
    Very elegant interior , excellent presentation!

    Bonjour Nicolas,
    wow this is an amazing POV. You have perfectly captured the three layers of the horizon with decreasing intensity.
    The middle one -a hill is attractively decorated with trees which provide nice silhouettes here.
    The sky color is amazing!!
    Very impressive photograph!

    Hi Gert,
    and you don't even mention the presence of the attractive lady on the bike :)
    Fantastic geometry indeed. Plenty of horizontal and vertical lines plus the dogs and people adding some life and the bike introduces the characteristic Dutch motif.
    Very well seen and captured!!

    This is spectacular. I have never seen it from above!
    So funny -I have been near the bean and I didn't realize that there are skyscrapers so tall so close!
    The square is nicely framed with the vegetation, the resulting square was perfectly placed by you here, the geometry is so impressive.
    Fantastic POV, perfectly used!!

    wow, to wnetrze jest naprawde bardzo bogate. Podobaja mi sie te mocne kolory na tapetach w jednym pokoju zielone w tym czerwone.
    Widac ze wszystkie element dekoracyjne sa oryginalne lub na takie stylizowane. Przyjemnie sie odwiedza tak dobrze zadbane miejsca.
    Jak zwykle w Twoim reportazu doskonale naswietlenie. Znakomita praca. Niestety to jednak dosyc daleko ode mnie. Mam blizej do Lwowa z mojego rodzinnego miasta (Tarnowa).
    Ale przynajmniej moge podziwiac na Twoich zdjeciach :)

    Hi Rob,
    very suitable format, I like it. In fact I have to scroll down to see the whole picture and first time it happens that one moment of scrolling I don't see neither of nor bottom of the photo, which is quite funny.
    Indeed this definitely one of the most photogenic buildings, I like it too. I am sure I have a photo of it in my collection but not on TE since I took it in pre-digital times with low quality lens.

    Very attractive presentation and funny facts in the note!
