    Hello Lisa,
    The shortsighted stupidity of some governments is just unbelievable, and unfortunately the present rulers of Australia seem to be more stupid than most, even more so because they were democratically elected. This picture is different from most at TE but an important contribution according to the ideas of the site.

    Hello Ourania,
    This is a lovely view, although I can only watch it on my mobile phone since a severe thunder storm "killed" my internet connection yesterday :-(. You have an original composition where the fluffy soft-edged clouds dominate the view, although all the action is found near the bottom. I like that you somehow went against the rules. The effect is lovely and the blue tones are very attractive.
    Kind regards,

    Hi Malgo,
    A very strange construction, typical British I think. There is nothing like these piers in Sweden. Even those that are still used look very strange to me. I can imagine this one being haunted by the ghosts of losing gamblers and unsuccessful entertainers. The rotten seaweed suits this place well.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Claude,
    This is an amusing copy of the Eiffel Tower and a smart and attractive composition. It's a challenge to show a different view of that famous monument, but even in the ws showing them both you manage to create something original.

    Hej Gunnar,
    En mycket snygg bild med vackert speglade moln och fint placerad båt, på väg åt rätt håll. Den kommer väl inte helt till sin rätt på mobilen, men åskan i dag slog ut bredbandet. Comhem skriver på sin hemsida att "man kan uppleva det som att bredbandet inte fungerar".

    Hello Meust,
    I remember Gaziantep in the 70's as one of the most colourful and "exotic" Turkish cities, and this doesn't seem to have changed, even though it has now become a dynamic "Anatolian tiger". I enjoy this charming photo of the two boys outside their store and the oldest one sipping his tea.

    Hello Jean,
    A nice composition with good balance between the areas dominated by clear sky, hazy sky, sea and sand. There is also a good balance between the boat and the person lying on the beach. The steep rock provides fine shapes that give the composition a strong character.

    This is a beautifully decorated gilded door and the man stretching his arm towards it gives the photo a certain depth, apart from providing life to the composition.

    Hello Ana,
    This is a charming double portrait of these donkeys. I like the colours and the obvious softness of their fur and I also like the green plant that the nearest one is chewing on. Its mouth and ear form a fine diagonal.

    Hello Maria,
    You took this photo from a perfect POV where the river flows on a diagonal and the "beach" creates a good balance to the beautiful old buildings. The light and colours are very attractive, but I must confess it doesn't appeal to me to spend my days on a "beach" like this. But the light brown sand and blue umbrellas look very nice on photos.

    Hello Chris,
    Street musicians are very popular everywhere and sometimes they play really well. They usually perform in popular places where lots of people gather, so for photographers they offer many good opportunities. Here you managed to combine the action of the musicians, lots of bright colours and the beautiful buildings lining the square into a pleasant photo with a good atmosphere of summer in the city.

    Ha ha, John, this is a beauty. The girl and the photo. You should always turn around now and then, because the best photos may be found behind you. I am sure your pictures of the airplanes turned out well but they could never be as charming as this perfect daily life shot.

    Hello Pavle,
    A nice panorama of the city and the hills behind. The chimney of the sugar factory dominates the view, so it must have been the most important industry in this part of town. It's a nice view with lots of green fields and trees.

    Hello Abmdudi,
    Her thoughts must have been floating very far off, considering she gave you enough time to find this perfect lighting and sharpness without noticing you. Being a market-lady is probably often very boring, allowing a lot of time for thinking between the customers. Unknowingly she poses perfectly. This is a very impressive photo.
    Kind regards,
