    Hello Jean,

    This is a novel and very successful detail shot. Through the windows, one can see the exterior, replete with resplendent colors.

    Hello Silvio,

    The 11th-century church is well preserved, and, thanks to you, very well photographed. The composition, colors, depth-of-field, and the exposure are all exquisite.

    Hello Luciano,
    Indeed a very unusual view of this famous cathedral. In the Amazonas I think there may be churches surrounded by the jungle, but not quite in Milano. It's a nice composition and the photo is perfectly sharp and well exposed. But why were the nationalists angry? Because the plants are foreign?

    Hello Malgo,
    The flower looks a bit dirty ;-), but the colour and shape is remarkable and the bee is very nicely captured. The blurred green background suits this photo perfectly. Personally I rather prefer the WS which shows some of the activities in the temple, but you know by now that I am bit strange when it comes to photographic preferences. ;-)

    Hello Gert

    Been there, and I can vouch for the fact that it's nothing special! But as you say, it's a gateway to plenty of more interesting places. You've succeeded in showing us the workaday world of the Mekong, warts and all!

    Hello Takero,
    I like this very nice portrait. Although she is a cheerleader and her job is to make people enjoy the festival, her smile really looks quite spontaneous and genuine. I also like how she is looking at us over her shoulder. The people behind her are sufficiently blurred but we still see that they also seem to be happy. There is a wonderful mild light on the woman.
    Kind regards,

    It's a pity you didn't wait for the bride and groom to arrive, but this arrangement of white and red on the white terrace is still very attractive, perfectly suitable for a photograph.

    Hello Elaine

    I'm surprised that this image has received relatively little attention. It's quite minimalist, pushes the rule of thirds to breaking point (to good effect), and has a very effwctive emotional charge. No matter that the loneliness of your title is imagined. Perhaps she's simply wondering what to have for supper...

    Hello Carlo,
    This fortress looks like it must have been virtually impenetrable. It is still highly impressive and not much worn by age. You had a good light which produced lovely colours and you found the perfect angle where you could put the flowers in the foreground.

    Hello Stephen,
    Well spotted, although nowadays you can look anywhere and find these behaviours. You missed the third kind: the person who walks rapidly along the street, close to the traffic and other pedestrians, only looking at the smartphone, blind to everything else.
    Still, this is an amusing photo, and it gains a lot from the women's postures, the red blouse and the green and yellow wall.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Malgo

    As you say, not pretty or old, and that's why I like it! It's "proper", authentic documentary photograhy, showing us real, ordinary lives, rather than tourist brochure postcards. That's what TE is for I reckon...

    Hello Piotr,
    Unfortunately I have only passed through modern Bar a few times so I haven't seen this. Even if not the original aqueduct it looks very impressive and quite beautiful. The Ottomans knew a bit about construction works and the Turks are still great builders. I admire the fine sharpness and colors.

    Hello György.
    Malgo will love this, and I do too. Gdansk looks so much better here than during the grey and rainy days when I was there a few years ago. It's an excellent blue hour photo with admirable sharpness and treatment of the light on the façades. You seem to have been standing just a few metres from the hotel where I stayed.
    Thanks for your comments on my Vietnam photo. Yes it was digital, taken with my first very simple Canon Ixus,

    Hello Angel,
    It's a lovely view of the town in the valley. The sharpness is remarkable, it's a very well exposed photo and beautiful contrasts of white, orange and green. The square down there offers a lively view.

    Hello Kari,
    I had seen this before but just forgotten to comment on it. The light and colours are quite fantastic and the swans on the nearly black water are amazingly strong eye-catchers in spite of being so small. There's a great atmosphere of the end of a cloudy and maybe rainy day in summer.

    Hello Brenda,
    This is a somewhat unusual environment on TE, but what an elegant room. Maybe that large wall could have been used for a similarly mysterious close-up as some of Rob's recent photos. There is a very attractive play of light and shadows on the wall behind the man, which you captured very nicely. Probably this room was more interesting than the watches, which maybe would mainly attract corrupt politicians and gangsters.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
