    Hello Malgo,
    A very nice postcard with wonderful colours. It's too late to change anything, but if you had taken a few more steps to the right, maybe you could have found an angle where you could have avoided the big grey structure in the lower left corner.
    Let's hope the winds of change will continue blowing strongly in Russia, especially over the Kremlin :-).
    Kind regards,

    Hello Gerrit,
    It's a nice photo, although it would have been even nicer to see these people from up front. I know it's sometimes hard to get the ideal photos, and this certainly has enough local atmosphere and colours to be quite satisfying. It tells us something about people's lives and their environment.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Ryszard,
    This is an extremely colourful and very nice photo. Painting faces on the pumpkins looks much nicer than cutting out eyes, noses and mouths. I haven't seen this kind before, but it's a good idea.

    Hello Jason,
    You managed to include a lot of people here, and it doesn't really matter that they're all dead. This crammed view is actually much more fascinating than the "touristic" graves of Jim Morrison, Edith Piaf, Oscar Wilde and other celebs. What a strange place and a very "nice" photo.

    Hello John,
    This is a fine picture with a stunning sharpness and clarity, considering the obviously weak light inside the workshop. The motion blur gives us a sense of the work going on, and the man's intense look shows his strong focus on cutting the wood exactly the right way. People at work is a great theme for photos, always interesting to watch.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Lars,
    This is an amusing way of taking a picture of a zebra. You'll never know with reflections. The distortions can make them look like something entirely different, buit this actually is a zebra! Yiu made a fine observation here.

    Hello Ann,
    The partial desaturation works very well, in my opinion. I wouldn't have thought of it unless you had told us. This looked to me as the natural desaturation of a Nordic winter, when colour photos mainly look grey. It's a terrific scenery and a very nice comnposition of three areas of land with water in beteween.
    Kind regards,

    Hej Gunnar,
    Snygg bild från välbekant plats. Det är en vacker kontrast mellan de rödgula löven och de ännu gröna. Tjejen är fint placerad bredvid trädet mellan stolparna. De utgör fyra väl samlade vertikala linjer som kontrasterar mot de grå och bruna diagonalerna. Det är fin lyster i bilden trots att det ser ut att ha varit ganska trist väder.
    Trevlig helg,

    Hello Swapan,
    It'sa fine view of the interesting temple and its rugged rocky background. You found a perfect POV for this shot. The two boys (or men, I can't tell from this distance) who may be dipping their feet in the water, provide just that little pinch of spice that the composition needed to be more than a postcard.

    Hello Eleu,
    What an amazing sky. It must have been a busy morning for the guys in the control tower. So many jet rays at the same time would have looked great in any case, but the orange tones from the early morning sun make them look terrific. The palms and the clarity of the light come as a great bonus.

    Hello Ray,
    This is a strange and fascinating scenery and it's interesting that you and Mark Twain could give such totally contrasting descriptions of it. Which one of you should I trust? :-). I can say for sure that I will never find out. It's a good photo anyway with fine colors and a nice composition. The sky looks great too.

    Hello Mesut,
    This is an elegant composition resulting from a clever observation. There are many lovely details of these old doors and a very well captured texture of the wood. The green handles are very nice and contrast beautifully with the red sign. It's a nicely cropped close-up of this well worn door.

    Hello Ana,
    The rock cuttings provide a beautiful background to what is essentally a photo of the two persons. Is the boy just making gestures in front of his mother's camera, or are they actually both taking pictures of each other? It's an amusing and very good photo combining Indian daily life with a piece of the remarkable Indian culutral heritage.

    Hello Malgo,
    A good photo that nicely includes the monitor of the other person's camera, which makes us understand the situation better. The painting is not entirely to my taste, but it serves well as a background for the photo the two men may want to send to their far away homes in Central Asia, or maybe the Caucasus. Nice workshops too.

    This is an excellent composition with very fine colours. The good sharpness and contrasts have created a 3D effect to the cathedral. As always I enjoy seeing the people in the street with the colours and life they contribute.

    A very enjoyable street-photo. The man is nicely placed off-centre with his newspaper. The well lit column contrasts perfectly with the black background. It's an uncomplicated but very nicely balanced composition with attractive shadows.
