    Hello Luis,
    A wonderful picture of the photogenic town from a perfect POV. I like the look of the small port in the bay surrounded by ancient looking buildings with red roofs. We get a good view of several beautiful buildings separated by narrow alleys. This town still has a strong medieval atmosphere. The suburb colours and light make it a joy to watch this photo.

    Hello Kari,
    I'm usually not so interested in photos of cars, but this one is quite special, especially considring the reference to that movie. I was much older when I saw Duel, but it was quite scary even to someone in his 30's, and it remains in my memory as one of Spielberg's best movies, much better than the multi million dollar productions of later years. And this truck really is kinda scary. B&W was the only option here.
    Best wishes,
    Gert

    Hello Ourania,
    This is a lovely photo with perfect tones of blue, orange and pink. The schooner and the full moon provide fine details and create a good atmosphere and the sea looks almost totally calm. We would hardly have noticed that there were any waves at all if it weren't for the slightly rippled reflections in the nearer part. This was absolutely a moment worth saving for the future.

    Hello Rob,
    This bridge looks like it was built by a big boy with a huge meccano set. It's a fantastic construction where I also like the grey, yellow, red and black horizontal lines in the lower part. At the top is a nice glimpse or the New York skyline.

    Hello Roland,
    There are not so many people actually watching the large painting, but those moving in front of it and especially those sitting on the red sofas look like being parts of the painting inside a larger frame. This is the kind of photo from a museum that I like, and the good result is probably partly due to the elevated POV you found. You have also cropped this nicely and handled the light perfectly.

    Hello Chris,
    There's a great light and a great atmosphere in this photo. The impressive tower is well placed and the trees add attractive green patches at regular intervals. It's easy to imagine the pleasant warm winds at the end of a hot day.

    Hello Ike,
    This graffiti is painted in strong colours and a bold design. It's difficult to say what it is supposed to express, but I see many interesting details. Your cell-phone has a good camera. Thee exposure and the management of the colours seem perfect.

    Hello Costantino,
    I don't like this kind of pebbly beaches, but it is a good photo with a long view of the beach and the waves. The modern looking church is nicely placed on the rock above the water and the few persons seen here and there make the scene come alive. The photo has perfect colours and clarity.

    Hello John,
    This is a splendid photo, very nicely cropped and technically perfect. Since these street artists often make it a gimmick to keep the same pose and same facial expression all the time I wonder if this was the woman's constant grimace and if the man was for ever pointing at the spectators. Or were you honored with a special treatment? It's a wonderful, humorous photo in any case.
    Kind regards,

    Hello György,
    As long as a conventional photo is well composed and attractive it's quite all right. And the most conventional photographers would probably not have included the two standing paddlers. The castle and its reflections are very nice and my only slight objection is that I find the yellow tone a bit strong.

    This is a fine photo from a high angle. The yellow building with red roofs is perfectly surrounded by green, grey and blue in a very colourful photo. The WS is nice too, although less bright.

    Hello Philippe,
    This is an attractive composition with few but distinct features. The dark round tree complements the old white building very nicely and towards the right side there is a fine contrast between dark and lighter green tones. From this low angle the blue sky with light clouds forms a fine backdrop.

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    Like so many other of your photos it's very well spotted and perfectly captured, and as usual you managed perfect sharpness from a distance. But I have to agree with Benny that the colours are rather strange and not entirely attractive. Or the man is actually not in a good health.

    Hello Danos,
    This is a relatively simple view but the composition is refined and elegant and means much more than what is actually shown here. I love the contrasts of green and white and the slightly curving green staircase surrounded by trees of a different green tone. This is probably not a view that could be found in a postcard but to me much more interesting.
    My former closest neighbours, living on the floor below me, were friends of Leonard Cohen and used to borrow his house on Hydra. He was a famous writer, but dead now, and she is still a famous artist.

    Hello Craig,
    Maybe fairly conventional photos but they're all very neatly composed and show a beautiful and interesting place. The lady in red is well placed in this photo but there are enough other features to keep me interested. I like them all, so it would have been a tough choice for you to decide which one to use as the official upload. I think this one has the best light (and a piece of red).
    Best wishes,

    A very typical Indian scene. The day is passing with not much happening as they watch people passing by. The man in the red shirt creates a perfect contrast to the green wall. It's a very nice photo in a pleasant shape.

    Hello Luciano,
    A very nice composition with a marvellously sharp photo of the seagull and the rugged Icelandic scenery in the background. I just miss the sheep that would enjoy the grass on the nearest piece of land. But it's a photo of great clarity and brightness anyway.

    Hello Carlo,
    This is a brilliant work of really modern art and a brilliant photo. The artist had a great idea and created a sculpture that is attractive because of the many colours but also because it says something about our modern society. Apart from the stunning impression of the sculpture itself, you have also increased its effect by including the traditional architecture in the background.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Silvio,
    This is a brilliant photo of great graphic beauty and with two persons who tell us of the huge size of the bridge. The sun shining through the vaults has created wonderful contrasts of light and shade, yellow and grey. You have also captured the texture of the bricks and plaster very well.
