    Hello Denis,
    This is a very nice composition with a minimalistic touch. The eye-catching man is surrounded by soft shapes of only two colours. You cropped the photo neatly. The WS is a good photo too but a more conventional postcard, so I think you made a good decision to use this as the official upload.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Mohammad,
    The dark clouds enhance this view of the sunset. The sun is perfectly captured and is beautifully reflected. The fishing rod is an original feature but is well placed exactly parallel to the orange line.

    Hello Philippe,
    It's a very pleasant photo where you captured the bird in a beautiful environment. The moss on the stone has created a fine texture and also matches the surrounding leaves perfectly. The background is sufficiently blurred.

    Hello Lars,
    After seeing all three windmills anyone should be entitled to a rest with a coffee or maybe a beer in this nice square. It looks like a pleasant place and the many people sitting outside on this day in early autumn create a fine ambience.

    Hello Krzysztof,
    You used the wooden frame of the window perfectly to frame the beautiful view of the trees and the lawns. I like very much the different tones and textures of the grass and the soil. The colours are beautiful and are probably enhanced by the dark frame.

    Hello Craig,
    Believe it or not, but I might have tried to take this photo too. I am also fascinated by such old walls, especially when they are as rough as this and contain so many details of different colours. The light is really perfect here but it wouldn't have been any good without a person stepping in front of the camera. That man's shirt is well chosen. The graffiti is of course among the finest details.
    Best wishes,
    Gert

    Hello Pavle,
    This is an unusual composition, but I like the vertical accent and the fine balance of grey and yellow tones. The two small signs are attractive eye-catchers and the texture of the walls is well captured. It's a kind of almost abstract composition.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Brenda,
    It's almost a pity that this is only here temporarily. It makes a spectacular feature in this classic part of the city, among the tall buildings, and would probably in due time be as appreciated as many other well known NYC sights. But maybe the material would not last for ever. I like the angle of this photo and the fine light on the sculpture (balloon?), but maybe my favorite detail is actually the silhouettes of the three persons. They are so perfectly seen against the lighter area.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Carlo,
    The reflections in the slightly open windows are well spotted and cleverly managed. The are like a painting inside a very thick frame. It is rare to see reflections of such noble buildings as these.

    Hello Piotr,
    You captured the manor and the state in a photo of great symmetry. Even the nearest shadows fit this pattern, only the people outside the building break it, which is actually a good thing. The light and contrasts are perfect.

    A great view of the fertile valley, the forests, hills and lake, with the romantic castle as the jewel of the crown. The trees to the left are well used for the foreground. The bright light is very agreeable.

    Hell John,
    The small timbered hut is quite beautiful and an unusual kind of building in your gallery. I love the fine and well captured texture of the wood and its entire design. It is nicely situated and in a way it is well balanced by the distant church tower. You seem to have had a lovely day, like we also enjoyed in Stockholm.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Benny,
    With this colour and that odd window the barn would have looked strange in any case, but the well spotted shadows of the branches definitely male it rather creepy. I saw the reference to Hitchcock, which would be quite relevant.

    Hello Chris,
    I am sure you were not moving at 90 km/h when you took this. It's remarkably sharp and clear in any case for a picture shot through the window of a bus. The stunning view was definitely worth a photo.

    It's plain but nice street and a well cropped photo. The lady is well placed, enlivens the view and above all fits the pastel colour scheme perfectly.
