    Hello Arunava,
    Welcome back to TE. It is a surprise to see you here after such a long absence. This is an elegant close study of these Nepalese temple gates, an artistic delight and a masterpiece of craftsmanship. It is a well exposed photo with supreme sharpness allowing us a close look at the many fine details. I see this was taken almost a ear ago. I wonder how this temple withstood the disastrous earthquake.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Ike,
    It's interesting to compare the three pictures and to see darkness gradually falling over the city. You exposed this well, but I would have thought a much longer exposure should have been necessary in this darkness. You captured the exciting city atmosphere very nicely anyway.

    Hello Didi,
    It's a magnificent bridge with very beautiful vaults. It's also a well made stitch and the fine warm light makes it a very pleasant photo. Is that just some logs lying in the water, or is it a stranded whale? Or maybe a submarine? ;-)

    Hello Brenda,
    You have taken a very intricate photo where all these structures seem to have merged into one gigantic architectural hub. Only the three persons outside the hotel are solid and real, everything else seems to be floating in the air. It has taken a long time but now it is clear that NYC is about to create another landmark that in due time probably will be just as famous and beloved as the Chrysler Building, Flat Iron or Empire State Building.

    You captured very beautiful tones of the water and made the river's surface look very smooth. The long bridge and the green stretches of land divide the water and the sky elegantly.

    Hello Chris,
    I didn't consider swimming here, but I enjoyed the city as such. There is a very long and less crowded beach south of the city, stretching all the way to the Albanian border, but the water is very shallow there too. In any case you found a nice POV for this photo with the two piers going diagonally across the foreground. The distant umbrellas create a very fine colorful line below the city.

    Hello Serge,
    This photo could serve as a lesson in geometry. There are so many lines and shapes here, and we get the fine skyline at the same time. The cyclist adds welcome life to the composition. The light and colors are very good.

    Three fine photos. I almost think she dressed like this because she knew a photographer would come around. Catfish taste much better than they look. Even in this photo there is a nice glimpse of the scenery of Lofoten.

    Hello Alexandre,
    The black and red steam engine on the diagonal tracks looks majestic, especially when seen in these misty surroundings. The grey background creates a somewhat mysterious atmosphere. I like the inclusion of the two persons and the hazy glimpse of a yellow bus. It seems to have been a fairly chilly day.

    Hello Pavle,
    It's a fine view of the river, and I can't really notice that the water level has gone down. It would in any case look like a fine area for fishing anywhere along these banks. It's a good composition with fine balance between the dark blue river and the lighter sky.

    Hello Frank,
    When I travelled through India in the early 70's all trains were pulled by steam engines. You can imagine what I looked like after a journey of 10-20 hours with all the windows open. I think these trains are much nicer to watch than to actually experience. The black smoke and the rather dark colours have created a peculiar and rather fascinating atmosphere.

    "Brown shoes don't make it", but red shoes do, especially along with a green guitar and a threatening sky, looking like it was made in Hollywood. It's a stunning picture that makes me think of a poster, and I can't believe that nobody bothered about it before me.

    You used the jetty well as a diagonal line going into the centre of the photo, where the people enjoying the afternoon sun create a delightful atmosphere of summer. The light is warm and beautiful and the red boat adds more pleasure and colour. The foreground is nicely filled with reeds and plants.
