    Hello Serge,
    You observed this moment very nicely. I think this kind of close-up tells us more than a wider view of people re-enacting an ancient battle. It's a well composed photo, nicely cropped and with very good colours.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Craig,
    What a very conventional photo, and how very nice it is. ;-)
    You would have been totally incompetent not to include the couple on the bench in the foreground, so it honors you that you grabbed the opportunity. They add so much to the view, which for sure is pleasant enough in its own right. Fine light and colors and fine workshops too.
    Best regards,

    Hello Daniel,
    So this was what kept you away from the site. This is a very nice composition. It has a postcard shape but doesn't quite look like an ordinary postcard. They usually don't show such a cloudy sky and a relative lack of beautiful buildings. I like this kind much better, where the river and the bridge get most attention and the large church is only seen in the background. In spite of the clouds the light is perfect and the photo has a very nice light blue tone.
    Regards,
    Gert

    Hello Pavle,
    I can imagine the rain was well needed at the end of the summer. Rain can also benefit photos because of the mild colours created by the dark clouds and the haze of the water. This is a pleasant scenery and a well exposed photo.

    Hello Chris,
    The small ferry is nice and the lights create a quite cosy atmosphere on board. More important is that the lights and the purple sky have created fantastic reflections. This is a very well exposed evening photo with superb colours.

    Hello Jorge,
    Crossing between Indian states seems more complicated than crossing between different countries in Europe. It's very strange and wastes a lot of time and probably money. On the other hand the long wait made it possible for you to take this bright and interesting photo. Indian trucks are remarkable, probably only surpassed by those in Pakistan which are even brighter and more decorated. The light is perfect and I love the dark grey clouds.

    Not many places can offer so many colors as fruit and vegetable markets. They are delightful to watch and to smell. This is a kind of photo I like very much, thanks to the people you have included. Fantastic colors and a lot of activity.

    Hello Ryszard,
    A beautiful garden and a nice photo with lovely colours and light. You did your best to give the photo perfect symmetry, only that the trees look different on opposite sides a and no persons are sitting directly in the sun to the right. I like such details the disturb the perfect symmetry.

    Hello Krzysztof,
    This is a nice composition of the long curving seafront of Sliema. There are still some traditionally painted boats but when I was here 19 years ago there were probably more of them. It's an elegant photo, well balanced, and the colours are nicely intense.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Nicoas,
    This is not your usual style but you handle this kind of photo just as excellently. The building is fantastic and is beautifully adorned with green and red plants. The yellowish tone makes the photo look like it was taken much much longer ago than last week. It's more like a hand painted postcard from the 1920's.

    Hello Carlo,
    A very original composition but somehow a fitting symbol for today's tragic events in central Italy. Even on an ordinary day this would have been a good photo of a simple but elegant beauty. You made an excellent observation.

    Hello György,
    I remember this square very well, of course, but it looks different on a rainy day. The sun was always shining without mercy during my visit. But the rain creates a much more interesting atmosphere, while also seeming to clear the air. There is a very fine clarity which I like. I also like the look of the three girls crowded under one umbrella, one of them fortunately wearing red. I happen to know that the man in the background is just a statue, indifferent to the weather.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Malgo,
    Congratulations on nine years on TE. Will you be the only remaining active member next year? :-(
    What a relief to see another castle that the Swedes couldn't destroy. It is very impressive, and you shouldn't worry that the weather wasn't so good that day. The lack of sun really makes the colours very favourable. There is a fine balance between the green trees, the brown walls and the red roofs. And I don't mind at all that you took this photo while some persons were standing in front of you.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Alexandre,
    This is a very elegant composition in a perfect vertical shape. I love the desaturated colours and the silhouettes of the palms against the grey sky. The mighty waterfall is left in the background, surrounded by haze and framed by trees. You have done this very cleverly.

    Hello Rob,
    I don't know if you can get a feeling of vertigo from looking up, but the many lines going in all directions and the obvious great hight of these steel constructions almost make me a bit dizzy. The photo has a great graphic beauty but I am just as impressed by the construction as such, and the effort of designing and building it. It could have been a somewhat chaotic photo but you stabilized it by sticking one of the steel pillars firmly to the left side of the frame.
    Best regards,

    Hello Danos,
    This is a lovely view of the town and its marina. The density of the town on the hillside makes it look very attractive. I imagine many nice, narrow streets waiting to be explored. The superb clarity and colours also make this photo worth a good long look.

    Hello Silvio,
    The news today was very sad and upsetting. Human lives matter most, but it is always also a tragedy when unique architecture is lost for ever. This photo will now be a memory of this beautiful church. You deserve a full green smiley for the high quality of the photo.

    Hello Ourania,
    It's interesting, but not surprising, that you still have photos left from that window in the hospital last year. The dark silhouette of the man and his long shadow are similar to those you showed before, so the special characteristics of this photo are the jagged shadow to the right and the white lines to the left. All these details make the photo graphically and artistically very attractive.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Dagmar,
    Welcome to TE. You start with a fine photo from a good elevated angle. The high rocks frame the view of the beach very nicely and there are lots of people who animate the view. The colours of the sand and the waterer beautiful.
