    Hello Bülent,
    This photo nicely combines culture (the ruin and the note) with daily life and nature. The teacher is perfectly dressed for a color photo and is well placed near the upper corner, which makes him part of an invisible diagonal going to the girls' backpacks in the opposing lower corner. There is a fine balance of green tones and also the rusty brown tones of the bricks and the trees to the right.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Jean,
    I remember this interesting temple from a visit 40 years ago. Maybe there are more beautiful flowers in front of it now, otherwise I wouldn't think anything has changed. It's a remarkably colourful and attractive composition with a perfect, crowded and bright foreground.
    Regards,

    Hello Ourania,
    I must admire your talent for spotting interesting compositions almost anywhere. This is of course a photo of the "nothing special" category (that's a compliment), but the abandoned café and the weak light create a very strong out-of-season atmosphere. Above all this photo has remarkably well matching tones of grey and blue, which gives it a fairly harmonious character in spite of the emptiness and the obviously chilly air.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hi Ken
    Very impressive view that takes in a lot more than first glance would indicate. The eye is drawn to the stone but there is so much more in the background, all presented on a stunning blue sky. The gold looks great against it
    Cheers

    Hi Serge
    Interesting view of this strange installation, like a spiders web made of bird feathers. The rich earth color stands or beautifully in this snowy cold environment

    Hello Christiane,
    This saddle is a beautiful piece of handicraft and it looks well polished by being used for a long time. It's an interesting photo, quite different from what is usually shown on TE, and the workshops are very nice too, especially the one of the horse.
    Kind regards,

    Hi Luis
    Perhaps it's because I don't see them much in Ireland but I find balconies a fascinating architectural feature. Your chosen angle, the light and colors here are all superb. Very nice shot

    Hi Aleksander
    A fine example of construction that it sympathetic to its surroundings, and a rather mysterious little building for it too. Well managed light too which I'm guessing would not have been easy here

    Hello Philippe,
    These capitals have been quite well kept for hundreds of years, so we can still admire the beautiful details created by ancient masters. It's a fine close look accompanied by an interesting and informative note.

    Hi Costantino
    This is a beautiful sunset and the way you have included the people in the frame enjoying it makes me feel like I am right there in the scene with them. A nice combination of muted light and silhouette

    Hi Jorge
    I find the moon really hard to photograph so I can really appreciate this, your placement of the satellite dish is a nice touch too, it almost looks like a blackbird in the thumbnail. I'm also surprised you didn't get more interest in your ufo photo, and I wonder have we really become so blase? Fascinated me anyway :)
    Best wishes

    Hello Malgo,
    I would not complain of the quality of this photo. It's perfectly sharp and the colours look perfectly natural. It's good to see a place that hasn't been destroyed in later years, contrary to what I have shown today. :-(

    The people all being in different poses makes this photo really interesting, they could almost be attempting to spell a word. That shot is awesome too and makes the people look so tiny in its face

    Hi Ourania
    Your winter had more blue sky that my summer :) I really like this view of over the green blue sea and that you included the foreground so that the blue chairs link both parts of the frame. The chairs being empty at a touch of melancholy to the entire view.
    Have a great weekend

    Hello Krzysztof,
    Usually people take photos of spiral staircases, but this kind offers a different but equally interesting kind of view. The are several fine diagonals, lovely details of the ceiling and a very nice light coming from several places.

    Very nicely seen graphic image, all the zigzag lines are fascinating and draw the eye right into and through your photo. The light creates a very unique feeling too. Well seen and well captured

    Hi Gert
    A beautiful city and a fine tribute to what one was. I still find it staggering that a city can be destroyed in our times, it's people killed and its heritage wiped from the earth. I hope for better times for the people of Syria. Thanks for sharing this very important historical document
