    Bonjour Christiane,
    what a beautiful spot, so photogenic!
    You have made a perfect use of it.
    The light was challenging and the sky got burned out a bit but nevertheless the quality of image is stunning!
    There are plenty of attractive elements in the composition.
    I have heard about this town but never seen any pictures from it.
    Beautiful work,

    Hi Chris,
    wonderful presentation of the ruins. I had the pleasure to visit this spot a while ago. You captured it from such an original angle that I didn't recognize it. Having the red sculpture in the foreground surely adds a nice contrasting touch to the structure.
    Excellent work!!

    Hi Rob,
    I think your series of people interacting with art is more interesting to me than the art itself.
    Here there is something what really connects these two ladies with the painting. At first, when the picture was slowly loading on my screen from the top I was not sure if they are part of the painting or people enjoying it. Further details leave no doubt of course.
    Great reportage, fantastic contribution to the series,

    Hola Sergio,
    wow this is so extraordinary!
    Yes I remember seeing also Paul's photos from this place. This is a picture so beautiful that it feels a bit surreal. The cloud pattern is amazing adding so much beauty here with the well polarized sky!
    The shape of the mountain is quite characteristic and you have taken it from a great point of view!
    Very impressive!!

    Hi Abmdsudi,
    you are a master of the panning photography. Here a fantastic example of it.
    I like that the picture has several layers of depth with the closest guy completely blurred, middle two sharp and the background blurred again.
    The effect is stunning!!
    Excellent work,

    Hi Pavle,
    lovely modern bridge: the geometry makes it very photogenic.
    You have placed it very well in the frame and included a very interesting foreground, I suppose those are places where you can go for a boat trip along the river.
    And we can also spot a fisherman.
    Very attractive scene, well captured,

    Hi Bev,
    beautiful castle indeed. Multitude and diversity of turrets adds a fairy tale feeling indeed! Very interesting idea to capture it across the bridge and the presence of people adds some more life and color to the scene.
    I am learning every minute something new on TE, there are so many beautiful place of which existence I was completely not aware!
    Excellent work,

    Hi Benny,
    very impressive capture. The little churches with cemeteries around them are quite widespread here but it is not always easy to capture them in an interesting way. You had a spectacular light here and/or it is your processing which made the scene to feel three dimensional and of course the contrast of the well lit architecture with the dark clouds behind is amazing!
    Excellent work,

    Bonjour Nicolas,
    the picture was opening on my screen very slowly from the top and I was wondering why did you include so much of the white foreground but then suddenly the little tree appeared and everything became clear! It made me laugh. The little tree makes a very charming and so efficient foreground!! The panoramic view of mountains is spectacular!
    Excellent composition,

    Bardzo ladnie to pokazales. Jestem przede wszystkim zachwycony tym jak dobrze udalo ci sie zbalansowac naswietlenie. Tak owszem -sporo swiatla wpada do srodka z zewnatrz ale zwykle w takich sytuacjach kontrasty robia sie nieznosne a u Ciebie wszystko takie lagodne i naturalne. To obramowanie firana rowniez swietny pomysl!

    Hi Daniel,
    very iconic scene indeed! I like it very much! In spite of not having much direct sunlight here, the effect is very clear, colorful and so vivid! I like the array of the characteristic townhouses which is also enhanced with their reflection.
    Very impressive!!

    Bonjoue Jean,
    one cannot wish for more: amazing light of the rising sun, it feels so warm! The sea captured with a speed at which the shape of the waves is nicely frozen. The silhouette of the pier adds so much interest and character to the scene. Of course the reflection in the wet beach is literally and figuratively a highlight!!
    Spectacular photo!!

    Najbardziej podoba mi sie to odbicie ktore jeszcze wzmacnia efekt.

    Hi Bulent,
    this is such a beautiful composition here! The water has such eye catching light green color tone! The boat contributes interesting shape and by the way you composed it makes the geometry very attractive.
    The background is stunning!
    I like also the inscriptions in the foreign alphabet which adds a local and exotic touch.

    Hi Paul,
    beautiful light, interesting architecture and on top of that the event which is so colorful! Rainbow adds even more colors and of course having an event makes it double as interesting shot.
    Yes, I suppose there is some contradiction here. Liberal values including full rights for LGBT community or women rights are great achievements of the western culture and so is the willingness to help the people who feel unsafe in their countries. But what if the newcomers themselves do not respect the liberal values, don't respect women, or are used to the fact that in their countries LGBT is not legal.
    Should we be selective in choosing people to help? Isn't it naive to believe that the newcomers will learn about the values by living in the western society.
    I did see that happening in America. May be because people don't get any help from government but are forced to work hard and integrate. Western Europe ironically by being more generous seems to be less successful in this respect...
    Great contribution here!

    Bonjour Denis,
    amazing light although a bit pity that the sunshine does not touch the houses but places them in the shadow. Nevertheless the rest of the scene is jaw dropping with colorful flowers in the foreground and branches framing from above.
    The boats in the harbour are also beautifully lit by the warm rays of sun.
    Beautiful scene!

    Hi Lars,
    may be it is just because I did not see enough but this windmill appears quite unique to me. Its design feels different than typical windmills.
    Perfectly captured here with professionally employed rule of thirds. I like also the little path twisting in the frame. The weather was attractive and it resulted in a very attractive photograph,
    Excellent work,

    Hi Angel,
    I think I had a pleasure to admire those beautiful trees in Spain but also later in Argentina. The purple color of the bloom adds an extraordinary feeling, so surreal! More like from a fairy-tale.
    Here you have captured them well in the full abundance -decorating the road so beautifully.
    Lovely dedication as well.

    To miejsce jest naprawde piekne! Pamietam ze czytalem o tym ale z braku czasu pominalem to miejsce. Wydaje mi sie ze bylo nieco oddalone ale i przeciez inne miejsca bywaly w Barcelonie oddalone a jednak tlumy sie tam pojawialy...
    No nic -bedzie okazja zeby kiedys wrocic znowu i postaram sie pamietac o wrazeniu ktore zrobilo na mnie to zdjecie :)
    Swietny punkt widzenia ktory pokazuje rozmach tego miejsca.

    Hi Costantino,
    indeed we cannot tell much about the town in the distance but the clouds are so beautiful that they suffice for an attractive photograph. The contrast of the white and blue is so well pronounced.
    Boats make quite charming foreground, especially the colorful one.
    Very well seen and captured!!
