    Hello Jean,
    What a beautiful coastline with those high steep cliffs.
    The beach isn't crowded at all and looks quite attractive.
    In the distance I see a house built on the edge of the cliff. Some like to live dangerous.
    Excellent perspective.
    Best regards, Paul

    Hello Beverley,
    I always thought that 'pebbles' were stones smaller in size ... but then it would have been a much bigger job to build this church.
    A very beautiful church with towers resembling defense towers.
    And as usually on pictures of churches in England, they're located in a green environment. In the past, our graveyards also surrounded the churches but still the sight was very different.

    Hello Luciano,
    I understand you were inspired by Silvio's picture but you also need some luck to encounter this situation ... unless there are many butterflies where you live.
    A fantastic image of nature. Actually, a little funny too.
    A very high quality photo.
    Well done.

    Hello Luis,
    Excellent use of the row of yellow bikes to present us the Helsinki Market Square with a most attractive and vivid foreground.
    The bikes give the picture much more depth.
    Excellent composition, sharpness and overall quality.

    Hello Malgo,
    Your pictures of Fenghuang always show us a highly remarkable and most interesting place.
    What a wonderful covered bridge!
    The yellow illumination is wonderful in combination with the sky during the early blue hour.
    An awesome view of the riverside with the houses on stilts.

    A long row of beautiful carriages.
    They're presented quite nicely here under the overhanging leaves of the palm trees.

    Hello Luis,
    Great view of Santiago and the Andes taken on the Cerro San Cristóbal.
    The smog over the city is clearly visible but still it's a great picture!
    Impressive with the high wall of snowcapped peaks that borders Santiago on one side.
    Excellently composed.

    Salut Jean,
    En effet, de beaux motifs dans le sable qui font de la plage une promenade attrayante.
    Il semble une sorte de labyrinthe dans lequel on ne peut pas marcher sur les lignes pour en sortir.

    Hello Alexandre,
    I haven't been to Piedras Rojas and looking at your picture I regret it.
    What a stunning landscape! I love these colour contrasts between the reddish rocks on the foreground and the plain blue sky with the snow in between.
    The few people add good scale to this photo.

    Hello Luis,
    For sure this is a very beautiful church!
    Quite a piece of craftsmanship!
    Its warm redbrown colour goes well with the blue sky and the greenery on the background.
    The Norsk Folkemuseet is certainly a very interesting open-air museum.

    Hello Gert,
    In my humble opinion both Cetinje and Podgorica are places where few people know much about. I personally know absolutely nothing about these towns. Here I learn that Cetinje was once a capital.
    It looks pretty Central European and not Mediterranean, I think.
    A beautiful picture, full of colour with the row of houses under the bright blue sky and with a warm greeting from both men.

    Hello Craig,
    I always like to make new friends and even more with the locals of the places I visit. And yes ... sometimes it can be a horse :)
    Since you had that walk all to yourself, this horse was very happy to finally meet someone.
    We see more of the landscape on the photo in the workshop but I find your main post a lot more charming.

    Hello Kari,
    The buildings and especially the church tower and the stepped gable catch beautifully the last sunlight while they're surrounded by a dark Rhine and an even dark sky.
    The double rainbow is clearly visible and a wonderful element of this picture.
    A brilliant photo taken on a very special moment.

    Hallo Lars,
    Ik denk dat we False Creek al eerder gezien hebben op de foto's van Craig.
    Dit zicht komt in ieder geval bekend over.
    Prachtig beeld met het zog van de meest dichtbije boot dat in een driehoek over het wateroppervlak uitdijt.
    Een mooie spreiding van de andere boten over de foto.
    De hoogbouw staat mooi op een rij waarbij de bolvormige constructie toch de meeste aandacht opeist.
    Vele groeten, Paul

    Hello Brenda,
    Food for humans ? Isn't that food for thought ?
    The zebra crossing also looks to be created only for humans.
    In all my life I've never seen someone transporting a plastic bag with balloons ... So this is how it looks like. I wonder what the use of the bag is ... It's not difficult to hold balloons on a string.
    The crosswalk is an attractive foreground for this street scene.
