    Bonjour Christiane,
    what a very charming scene here. I like the wide feeling to it. Very well thought through composition with plenty of attractive elements like the boats at the tiny pier. The building so cute and in such a picturesque setting. I am really encouraged to go and visit this place.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Abmdsudi,
    very impressive scene. The sky is amazing, so well exposed here. Very good use of the characteristic silhouettes. The mood is quite dark as if it was the end of the world.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Chris,
    I have never been there but I think I recognize this array of houses. First time I see it from this angle. The perspective helped you to squeeze them nicely into the frame.
    The variety of colors is brilliant! Here we can as well spot that they are not that perfectly straight which means they are really old and hence distorted.
    Great street scene,

    Hi Bev,
    I remember I once congratulated you having a new camera but it was a misunderstanding. Now I suppose I can safely congratulate you the new camera?
    As for a NEW camera this photo feels very much like an OLD photograph :)
    Great scene with the railway motif.
    Good idea to use black and white.
    It feels almost like a wild west although to be precise this would be rather wild east. I have never been to this county before, a bit too far maybe for a day trip and places for longer trips I have a lot on the list...
    I like the steam and the shade it creates, very well captured!!!

    Hi Jean Claude,
    very picturesque view! I like in particular this uniquely shaped church tower. Nice to see the two levels of the town with some houses so high on the mountain. The vineyard of course adds a charming touch in the foreground.
    Beautiful work,

    Hi Craig,
    yes I agree this is a lovely city, and so photogenic with so many places to visit and enjoy.
    The square again: with amazing pattern of the pavement. I love it!
    But here I like very much the way you used the wide angle zoom. The column looks so huge and impressive. The girls also add some life to the scene.
    The clouds as well were very favourable. They decorate the view so nicely.
    Excellent final effect,

    Hola Luis,
    lovely view of this unique castle. I remember being there but it was in the pre digital times. Great sky and most importantly a fantastic point of view!
    A bit pity that the sun was covered with clouds and there was no direct sunlight, that would probably make the colors more vivid and scene eye catching. But it is nevertheless a fascinating view. Great reportage from Scandinavia!

    Hi Ike,
    I am not surprised at all that you got fascinated with this view. It is probably the best view in town! Here the main focus is on extraordinary sky pattern, with the city providing rather a silhouette which complements the late sunset scene.
    Lovely romantic mood,
    very well done,

    Hi Danos,
    another amazing point of view on these spectacular falls!
    I really have to visit this place someday. You have managed to tick off two of my dream destinations in one trip: the Plitvice and Lake Bled as well.
    I know they are very touristy but it is for a reason!
    This picture illustrates perfectly the essence of this extraordinary place.
    Excellent work!!!

    Hi Daniel,
    very original presentation from Ljubljana.
    The POV was excellent allowing you to take well the square and the buildings around it. Light was challenging but you have managed it very well. I like very much your great care in planning the composition.
    Wonderful picture,

    Bonjour Jean,
    I think I even prefer this spectacle to the fireworks.
    The colors of the sunset are stunning! Great sky! Fantastic reflection in the wet beach. Excellent balance of the exposition of various areas.

    Hi Chris,
    at first sight I thought wow this feels quite old and I thought that most old buildings were destroyed in Romania but then I read your title.
    I like very much how well they did the church. Usually modern day temples are not that precisely decorated. Very impressive and eye catching. Nice idea to take it together with the house next to it, also quite stylish.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Lars,
    this is one more spot which I have never visited in London. You may ask what have I actually visited?...
    This is a brilliant composition with the two old towers well contrasted with the modern Canary Wharf which they frame.
    Very well selected point of view. I will try to remember it for the occasion I finally manage to get there.
    Excellent reportage,

    what a charming scene indeed. The ladies have also such colorful jackets which makes the picture very eye catching. The idea they had was brilliant! Not only they are colorful but also the make a pleasant diagonal here.
