    Hello Rob,
    An amusing photo of the mannequins (almost) meeting real people. Two lines of "people" on different levels, lots of colours and details everywhere. A real big city view.
    Regards,

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    You have chosen a very suitable title for this relaxed and slightly moody photo. I can just vagely figure out the dirt on the distant shore, but I don't see it clearly and I don't feel the smell, so I can just enjoy the quiet atmosphere of late afternoon and marvel at the reflections of the old buildings in the calm water.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Satya,
    This doesn't really remind me of a Palace, but it must have been grand in earlier years. Now it looks rather crumbling and about to be consumed by the subtropical vegetation and monsoons. It would not offer the comforts of the 21st century. This is anywy a fine document of the lifestyle of a not so distant past.
    Kind regards,

    Hej Boa,
    Det här är väl inte helt likt Dalimålningen, men okej, associationer mår bra av att flöda fritt. Kul titel i alla fall till en riktigt originell komposition som vittnar om ett mycket bra bildsinne. De som vill ha vykort från Vilnius blir kanske besvikna, men jag gillar den här bilden i högsta grad. Helt klart i bästa Wolfgang-klass.
    Hälsningar,

    Hello Kasia,
    This photo might even have been worth a parking ticket and torn trousers. With all respect for Ukrainian frogs this will surely please more people :-). It's a masterly exposed photo and as perfect a composition as could be demanded, especially considering the short time you had to find the best place. Yes, this is very Dutch, and the morning haze seems to have been here since the 17th century painters last captured it. And how did you manage to find those fantastic clouds at the top? The WS photos are very neat and pretty but can't match this one.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hej Trevor,
    Detta är också en komposition som jag tycker mycket om. Den svartvita presentationen och den enkla miljön för tankarna till 1950-talet. Pojken som sitter på muren är liten, men han är ändå den verkliga prydnaden i den här bilden. Det skulle vara ganska lätt att hitta på en historia om honom och varför han sitter ensam på muren och tittar ut över havet. Detta är en tekniskt utmärkt bild med en vacker gråskala och god skärpa.
    Vänliga hälsningar,
    Gert

    Hello Serge,
    I like this photo that makes me feel we are taking a step back in time. These houses seem to be still in use, judging from the presence of the little boy with the bicycle, but they seem very much out of place in 2014. This is clearly not the wealthiest part of Quebec, but I am still quite touched by the simple charm of this view, as much as I admire the clarity and fine colors of the photo.

    Hello Ourania,
    Another fine contribution to your gallery of reflections. i find nothing disturbing here, only a collection of beautifully distorted areas of mainly yellow, blue and red, as well as very nicely reflected light on the side of the boat.

    Hello Eleu,
    This is a highly original building, but then everything designed by Frank Gehry is quite original. Is it beautiful or just strange? I am not sure but I enjoy watching this anyway, especially in the blue hour with the cosy light from inside.

    Hello Luis,
    This is a very nice composition. It looks like a traditional postcard but is much better than most of those. The flowers provide a wonderful foreground, and the buildings partly hiding the church are very elegant and don't disturb at all. The photo has a superb clarity with very good colours and light.

    Hello Jason,
    Ha ha, what can I say now that you already pulled the words out of my mouth? Couldn't you at least have waited until an eagle landed on that rock? :-). There are people on TE who are prepared to wait for hours for the right composition.
    But all right, it's a great view anyway. with Incredible rocks and colors, not unknown but overwhelming every time I see it.

    Hello Ryszard,
    Another fine example of the beautiful architecture found in many parts of Poland. The colours are fantastic and the light is very attractive. The composition seems a bit heavy towards the right side, but on the other hand you managed to include the entire wall and garden on the left.

    Hello Murat,
    This is a good photo, basically in the category of street-shots, but I think it suffers a bit from too heavy processing. The tones of the colors and the halos surrounding the figures indicate a rather heavy use of shadows/highlights.

    Hello Maria,
    This is essentially a portrait - from a distance - of the peon in the environment of his work. The horses may be more beautiful but here they are only partly seen in the background. In the composition the man is balanced by the rake, leaning like him on the railings. It's a nice photo from a kind of place seldom seen on TE, off the normal tourist tracks.
    Kind regards,

    Hello John,
    As you may know I am not particularly interested in cars, old or new, but I do admire well polished old machines that have been so lovingly taken care of for many decades. There are many fine details to watch on this Bentley, but to me the car is just part of a composition that also shows a spectator leaning into the view, three men discussing technical details (they couldn't be talking about the weather, could they?) and a bright red marquee. All these ingredients create a nice ambience that makes the photo well worth watching.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Costantino,
    This is a very nice shot taken a short time before these boys and their boats transformed themselves into the more typical summer holiday scene. The sails really look just as good on the road as on the sea, and this is certainly a more original photo. You captured them very nicely on a long diagonal line across the composition.

    Hello,
    Ah, this is so good. I love the look of the hungry dog fixing its eyes on the delicacies on the too distant plate. I am sure this eventually turned out to be a breakfast for two, or at least for one and a half. It would have been a crime not to take this picture and I hope it gets the attention it deserves.
    Kind regards,
