    Ciao Carlo,

    This is an excellent candidate for the group theme Compelling Backdrops.

    Hello Stephen,

    A richly informative note complements this post. The expansive architectural edifice is featured in detail with a group of Lilliputians strolling about giving it scale. With the stark contrast in brightly sunlit and foreground in shadows, light management becomes a real problem, but you've done a good job. I especially like the red seen in the reverse side of the poster. It lends a color highlight.

    Warm regards,

    Bulent

    Hello Gert,

    The construction workers in Baku make an excellent subject. "Men at Work" signs are often put up by workers in the States when a public works project is undertaken, but frequently there is the irony of half-a-dozen standing around watching, while just one or two characters are actually working. Here these men, nattily dressed in cobalt blue workers' overalls appear to be participating... at least 2 of 4, or maybe 3 of 4, with the man at the lower right supervising. It's a nicely composed photo, with the lines converging into the distance where a bright yellow highlight is present.

    Regards,

    Bulent

    Bonjour Clodo,

    You captured the moment well with the two women getting drenched. The weather forecast is very important for England, and it has become very accurate. There was a time when it was not the accurate, and along with train schedules, it was on the list of "works of fiction."

    Warm regards,

    The reflections double the value of this well-composed photo. It's an overcast day, but you managed the light well.

    Hello Takero,

    The young men have created a pyramid, seemingly orchestrated by the man with both hands raised examining the pyramid. This is a very good action photo with brilliant colors.

    A fine piece of street photography I cant help wondering if the two women here are related/travelling together. So many stories to find in one image. Nice

    Great streetscene Daniel, capturing the busy atmosphere of the shopping street. The rain probably didn't help you enjoy Amsterdam but added to the great reflections and light you have here.

    A typical street scene from small town India. Your focus puts the cow truly center stage but nice to have the lady in the OOF background. Great colours as we expect from India.

    Hello Serghei,

    A well-composed shot of the woman taking the "bull by the horn." Recently new controversy developed around the Wall Street Bull and a small 1-m high statue, "The Fearless Girl." The woman taking the photo of the bull is not the Fearless Girl, but you can see a short video at this link.

    Hello Piotr,

    The lights reflecting from the wet pavement, the orthogonal all converging at a vanishing point (a distant- point on the horizon line), as well as the colors collaborate to make this a very attractive street scene. The note is informative as always.

    The mirrorlike surface of the water would certainly have attracted my attention as well. The atmosphere is tranquil and dreamy. You composed and exposed the photo perfectly.

    Hello Dale,

    In the 20 months since you shot this photo outside Krakow, and most certainly in the 13 years since a census was taken the population must have changed from 4,499. You've also furnished an informative note to accompany the shot of the rugged rocks.

    Warm regards,
