    Hello Alexandre.
    This is a beautiful composition and a well timed photo. The man is well placed in the perfect light among the nice buildings, walking in the right direction. It's a very well exposed photo with an attractive clarity and fine contrasts. Possibly you could have cropped the left part with what may be the doors to a garage,
    Kind regards,

    Hello Luciano,
    Congratulations on a fairly perfect composition. This shows what a creative mind can make of a dull house and a few persons. It's a surprising place to find such perfect reflections. Surprising elements are often the key to a good composition. I will have to follow György's example and add this to my favourites.
    Kind regards,

    A beautiful view of the mountains where the cows grazing on the field create a pleasant atmosphere that balances the roughness of the dark mountainside.

    Hello Carlo,
    A photo of beautiful simplicity. The fine tones of green and the diagonals create a kind of dynamism in this empty scenery and the road cutting across a small part breaks the dominance of soft features and makes the photo more interesting. It is very cleverly composed.

    Hello Christian,

    Oh, the ducks are leading the way!
    You have chosen a fine aspect where the canal guides and the converging lines create a good sense of perspective.
    You did well to include the displays of flowers which immediately add a sense of warmth and pride.
    The old buildings back a most intersting b/g.

    Have a lovely day,

    Hello Malgo,

    Ha! Ha! At a higher magnification, it is possible to quite clearly see the monument!
    What an unusual subject!

    This is a fine aerial shot!
    The clarity is quite amazing.
    It seems as if we are looking through the blue, glass building on the left!

    Hello Piotr,

    A very well composed photograph detailing the pasture, the mountains and the deep blue sky.
    I particularly like the light and shadow contrasts and the inclusion of the grazing cattle, to establish a calm mood.

    Ciao caro Carlo,

    Mi ci è voluto un minuto per orientare me stesso e capire questo filmato, anche se ho subito apprezzato la grafica forte e la composizione bene.
    Che ben visto, fotografia abbastanza inusuale che offre grande impatto.

    Buona giornata,

    Hello Takero,

    Such a great shot of shared communal pride and exuberance! The expressions on the faces could not be faked, it is such a wonderful moment to capture the save.

    I love the details of their footwear!
    I've never seen anything quite like it before!

    Have a great day,

    Hello Danos,

    The colours immediately attract, especially the bright red, strongly-placed boat, surrounded by so much blue. It is almost as if it is winning at the start of 'big boat' race!
    I love the clouds, too.
    You couldn't have asked for better examples as a bubbling b/g to the boats.

    Wonderful, crisp exposure!

    My warm regards,

    Ciao caro Luciano,

    I love it!
    It's almost a monochrome pattern of geometric shapes but, then, these warmer colours and animating figures create focal points on a great separation line.

    Have a lovely day,

    Hello Benny,

    It's difficult to post a photograph that is very different but you have managed it, here. It is a most amazing window in the clouds, revealing something that looks like something from Conan Doyle's 'Lost World'.
    A wonderful sense of depth takes us to the volcano, surrounded by pastel shades. Great!

    Hello Rob,
    Here's a picture I would have loved to take. I am fascinated by what you can discover when looking straight down at something. The effects are often surprising and amazing, especially when people are involved, like here. And when the view from above is as colourful as here, and with so much happening down there, the result is stunning. Of course you have also cropped this perfectly neatly. This goes to my favorites, no doubt.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Daniel,
    It's a nice street scene in the evening. The duomo is a fine background detail and an indication of which city we are seeing, but the photo is more about the reflections in the street, the hotel signs and the people out to enjoy the evening. It's a nice composition and well exposed.
    Kind regards,

    This is a wonderful, colourful and charming photo, excellently composed with the well placed seagull. I also like the reflections of the "sail" and the fine blueish tone. The clarity of the photo is lovely..

    Hello György,
    There is quite a clash of architectural styles in this photo. Your fish-eye takes in a large part of central Frankfurt. There is also a lot of sky, which gives fine prominence to the nicely shaped clouds. It's a fine view of the city and a technically good photo, but maybe not your very most exciting one. But it's perfectly okay.
    Best regards,
    Gert

    Hello Lisa,
    How could I possibly write a comment that could match those lyrics by Percy French? (Yes I checked it up.) I can only say that it is a lovely scenery with great green tones and a fine play of shady and sunny areas. It's shot from a fine point and perfectly exposed.

    Hello Gyorgy,

    This is a very interesting shot!
    I can't help thinking that the guy in the hat, coming down the steps, has all the appeal of a star from an old b&w movie!
    He brings a whole scenario with him ... especially as he appears to be hiding his face like an old-time, character spy!
    The setting and the poster all add to the mood.

    I did look hard to see if he was being followed!!!

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Daniel,

    I think I have just the same aspect but during the daytime.
    It's not an easy shot but definitely an interesting one.
    The illuminated street creates a good linear perspective, enhanced by the figures.
    But, the pièce de résistance is undoubtedly the illuminated dome of the Doumo.

    Hello Michael,
    The overturned boat and the ropes make a superb foreground to the dramatic view of the castle. You were lucky to have these nice clouds which you apparently just had to improve very lightly to create a superb backdrop to the view. I can't imagine that the effect of this photo would had been the same in colours.
    Kind regards,
