    Hello Malgo,
    What a very nice photo. The resemblance to U Bein was obvious to me immediately. I am surprised it's so crowded. Was this a tourist group or is it so much used by the locals? You framed it nicely with bushes and trees, and the reflections are really perfect. Is Suzdal deliberately kept as a "living museum"? Streams and meadows and chicken and cattle in the unpaved streets doesn't sound like 21th century western Russia.

    Hello Mesut,
    You will need a very strong love of art to do this job at that man's age. I can't imagine many ways of making a living that would seem more futile than this. I appreciate this photo because you focus more on the artist than the actual art. We see his face, his hands and the few coins he has earned.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Carlo,
    This is a beautiful sunset, but at least half of the beauty is accomplkished by your clever use of the silhouettes of spectators, pillars and arches. We have all become part of the group of people and watch the lovely colours with their eyes, which makes us feel the fine atmosphere. The photo is well exposed and has captured the magnificent colours perfectly.

    Hello Romano,
    Another piece of quite marvellous graffiti. TYhis time it looks more traditionally illegal, but maybe I am wong and it has actually been commissioned by some authorities to take part in the festival. It's a very good painting showing a lot of vitality and the environment seems just right for this kind of painting. Very well spotted and nicely captuerd.

    Hello Angel,
    This is a very pleasant composition with excellent colours. We have a nice piece of land to watch in the foreground, and across the water is the larger area of land with fine beaches and the impressive lighthouse. It's a carefully taken photo with a fine balance.

    Hello Danos,
    This is an attractive photo with a quite sensational human rocket taking off from the water. I have never seen anything like this before. But my interest is also captured by the head just seen above the surface a bit closer. Obviously someone doing the very old-fashioned sports called swimming.

    This is a pleasant photo with fine colours and nice old boats. Some of the masts are nicely reflected in the puddle. The sky must have cleared very rapidly after a shower.

    Hello Ourania,
    My congratulations on your three very successful years at TE. You have certainly made an impression on a lot of members. You are now one of the experienced members reamaining from the good old days before everyone had left. :-)
    This is a very eye-catching and remarkable photo with an amusing title. The light on moody day, as you describe it, has given the colours slightly strange tones, making the photo look a bit like an old hand-painted postcard. There is no lack of attractive red details here. Having been a little boy myself once upon a time I easily understand his pride of standing at the very top, out of reach of his parents, The danger of falling to the ground would of course not bother a boy his age, but what about the parents?
    Kind regards,

    Hello Burak,
    This is a fine and less known view from Istanbul. The tower is famous but I am not used to seeing it from this side. Where did you stand when taking this photo? I like this view very much, It shows so many buildings tightly packed together with so many colours and so many details. The lack of bright sun makes the colours if possible even nicer.
    I would agree with John that if you make your photos smaller, maybe only 1200 pixels at the longest side, they will be more easily watched and less grainy.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Ray,
    This is a fine photo of the steep rocks of Mendocino and the nice tones of the water. It's a good place for views but looks less great for swimming. I first heard of this place in a song from the 70's, Talk to me of Mendocino, so now I see what it looks like.
    Thanks a lot for adding me to your favorites. It makes me very honored.

    Hello Silvio,
    This is a splendid view of the village seen from above. I like how the composition is split into threre sections with forested areas at the top and bottom, and the village and an agricultural area in the middle. It's amusing to look down upon the clouds. It was a hazy day but the colours are still nice.

    Hello Ann,
    The buildings are quite interesting but my attention is mainly captured by the bright yellow trees, which are nicely matched by the light brown wood of the huts. It seems to have been a nice day, probably not too cold, and the light was very good.

    Hello Ana,
    This is a charming and attractive photo which deserves more attention. The children are posing very nicely and the letters and symbols on the yellow wall give the composition a strong graphical impact. The children look remarkably well dressed for such a small village.

    Hello Krzysztof,
    This is a nice and original way to show the main square of a city. It's also a nice self portrait, although we don't see you very clearly. The well polished ball looks like a very interesting work of art, which could probably be used for many unusual photos.

    Hello Malgo,
    This is not at all a bad photo for such a "poor photographer" :-). But I am very disappointed that you didn't include the photo of the slim young woman as a WS. We are not all of us active on FB. :-(
    There are some very interesting buildings in the background and you put the jetty on a nice diagonal, also including a little boy (son?) in the foreground. The colours have remained quite good for almost 40 years, even though Orwo Chrome may not have been as good as Kodachrome.

    This is a fine photo from the port of Saint-Florent. The red nets with their green and white details provide a stunning foreground which matches the white boats and blue water and sky perfectly. It is a very eye-catching and attractive photo with superb light and sharpness.

    This is another fine picture from autumn in Wroiclaw. The magnificent red tree is well matched by the red coat, but also by the yellow and greens parts. The tree is well placed on the side, stretching its branches across the view, over tthe lake.
