    Hello Jean Claude,
    This is a nice composition. There is a good balance between the statue and the castle and with a lot of beautiful treeds in between. You may think I am crazy, but I really like the small glimpse of the persons in the road to the right ;-).

    Hello Kari,
    Your imagined image looks great to my inner eyes. I would probably have added it to my favorites. ;-) This one may look less fascinating but is still an interesting photo, because I have never been as far north as this and have never seen Malmbanan. These trains are definitely impressive.
    Best wishes,

    Lots of youthful joy perfectly captured in a photo which makes me feel the rhythm. Again with excellent tones of B&W.

    Hello Alexander,
    It's a fine photo with lovely colours and a great evening atmosphere among the birds. It's a good capture from nature and it is a graphically magnificent composition, quite minimalistic.

    Hello Danos,
    A fine nightly atmosphere well captured. The yachts are quite impressive but I care more for the people, the connection between them and in some cases lack of connection (mobile phones, mobile phones). The light is superb, and on second though I admit that the very expensive boats play important roles for the composition.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Costantino,
    I almost though this was in black & white, but indeed there are blue and mildly pink tones in the sky. The sun is nicely captured and the reflections are marvellous. The silhouette of the rock gives the composition a kind of stability.

    Hello Jean,
    Maybe this kind of building is common in the UK but to me they look like they're from a fairytale, possibly being the home of some friendly trolls. The roofs and the white things look very exotic. As for the composition you did well to include the curve of the lawn and the narrow road, as well as the trees on each side of the buildings.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Ike,
    Another fine phone photo of a work of graffiti which leaves none indifferent. The combination of red, yellow and black is striking. I wonder what that little monster creeping up the woman's shoulder is.

    This may not be specific for Iraklion, but it's in any case a fine sunset with very nicely captured warm waves and a pleasant blueish haze around the distant hills.

    Hello Daniel,
    I think I passed this city with the train, maybe even twice, but I didn't stop here. It could have been another nice experience, which this photo indicates. It looks like the kind of narrow alley which I like to explore. I like the glimpse of the church tower above the brick roof.

    Hello Christiane,
    It's a well composed photo where you used the contrasts of architectural styles and colours very well. There is also a maze of diagonal lines that make the composition quite dynamic.

    Hello Malgo,
    Maybe the strange jar is actually a huge chimney to let out the smoke from the kitchen? Your description of Kazakh food doesn't sound so very appetizing. Even what I had in Afghanistan seems to have been much better, mainly mutton and probably no horse meat. I honestly guess Italian food is better than Kazakh. Like John I wonder why this place is so empty. Was it well known that the food was no good?
    Kind regards,

    Hello Bev,
    This is a very different and very cheerful photo. Doesn't the man's outfit resemble Theresa May's shoes? ;-) I suppose these people had an alternative option to stay inside in case of bad weather, but it hadn't been half as fun (and probably too noisy). Sometimes you carefully plan to take photos from a certain place and then you stumble into something much nicer and more colourful. You never know what to expect on a photo safari.

    Hello Ryszard,
    Somehow this building looks far too elegant for its purpose, but hot mineral water must have been serious business in the older days. It's a good photo with fine symmetry and very well handled light, accompanied by an interesting note.

    Hello Lars,
    This building seems to be roughly the same age as the house at the corner of my street ;-). This looks seriously misplaced in this environment but it is no doubt a fine building. But being partly used as the entrance to a subway station sounds like a grave insult to one of the oldest public buildings in the country. It's a good photo with quite a lot of street-life and it is nicely cropped with the surrounding buildings just used as a frame.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Carlo,
    At first I wasn't really sure if the reflections were actually some very strangely hanging curtains inside the window. I didn't notice the very small man standing there ;-). You made a very smart observation. The distorted reflection of the Cathedral has a very interesting effect, especially because the window and the wall surrounding it are so elegant. It's an astonishing and amusing photo.

    Hello John,
    This photo immediately reminds me of one currently being shown on the TE homepage among the featured photos, called Traveling south. But that one shows real alive flying things. This is nice too, and I appreciate the sharpness and fine composition under such difficult conditions. I guess I don't share your or Craig's enthusiasm for any kinds of machines, but I admire well taken photos and I am always fond of well written notes.

    Hello Jorge,
    This is a nice photo of the small mosque and the mausoleum, but also of a typical Indian street with cars and motorbikes passing by and the motorbike-rickshaws waiting for passengers.. And there was not much to do about the dull weather.
