    Hi Serghei,
    very attractive lady, well spotted. She is posing very nicely whether you know her or not. She holds on tightly to her iPhone...
    The background is stunning too.
    Very well seen and captured!

    Bonjour Christiane,
    you have so recently returned from the Wild West and straight to another exciting trip to Paris!
    This is definitely here one of the most beautiful spots in Paris. I like the extraordinary architecture of the basilica.
    Nice low perspective. The weather was magnificent and provided fantastic blue sky as a background and so vivid colors!
    Very original foreground too with the footballs growing in the field :)
    Excellent work!!

    It looks like you had a great time out there!

    Hi Craig,
    quite an extraordinary building indeed!
    Nice close up but I also appreciate the wider perspective in the workshop to better imagine the building as a whole.
    The weather seems to be a bit foggy but it added a lovely touch here.
    Great geometry, very well spotted!!!
    I really have to re-visit Chicago allowing more time for photo-walks!

    Hi Paul,
    amazing location of the village at such a steep hill. Some of the houses are standing supported by wooden pals entirely. I think I wouldn't feel very safe sleeping in such house :)
    But I guess sometimes people have no choice.
    Very interesting note, I will definitely use your advice if I ever get to this amazing region.
    Quite an extraordinary view, great reportage!

    Hi John,
    I always miss the bluebells season. I have seen so many wonderful photographs of them, including this one here.
    This is a great focus on the flowerbed here.
    Although they are quite common and I remember seeing them in Poland I don't remember seeing them ever in such abundance. May be I didn't know where to go?
    Beautiful natural scenery.
    Pleasant to look at -it works so relaxing!

    Excellent work!!

    Hi Gyuri, wlaking thru your gallery I get the impression you are bending your knees alot. Low positions often change a normal or boring picture into a special one, a funny one, like in this case. Well seen and done.

    Szia Gyuri,
    it's strange, the smaller the camera, the funnier the positions when their ownes take pictures, especially when it comes to cellphones. Photo-acrobatics will have be a topic of mine in future.
    Well composed picture, I like the low point of view.

    Hi Abmdsudi,
    fantastic atmosphere of this capture. The reflection plays a major role here.
    People waking up in the morning to their daily duties are well presented.
    Nice composition with the major focus on the sky reflecting road.
    Great idea very well realized!

    Hi Gert,
    this looks like a lovely street scene.
    You have managed to get such vibrant colors in spite of quite a gray weather day. Except for the colorful jackets also the red tower surprises me with its color.
    Beautiful square with so many stylish buildings.
    Very well done!!

    Bonjour Nicolas,
    we see quite often lovely marina compositions, here you were also lucky to include the plenty of birds which add to a surprising foreground.
    Quite an interesting light too.

    Ciao Luciano,
    lovely scene -it looks like a frame from a movie.
    We see plenty of consecrated people like nuns or priests in their traditional clothes in Poland, but less so in Germany or UK. So I am not used to see them so often on the street. Here you captured them in a suitable setting as well.
    It looks quite peaceful and quiet.
    Very well spotted,

    Hello Burak,
    A different and original presentation of the Transamerica Pyramid.
    I realy like this foreground of red and yellow facades of ordinary houses.
    Well framed and composed.

    Hello Jorge,
    I think I see a monkey on the railing.
    I've never heard op Mandor ... You've also visited lesser known places in Rajasthan and you were right!
    This looks a very beautiful temple with many architectural decorations.
    Excellenty framed and composed.
    Nice contrast between the green and the stone colour.

    Hello Chris,
    A perfect example of a modern work of art referring to the ancient history.
    I visited the modern Bibliotheca Alexandrina, completed in 2002, and I was very impressed. Apparently today there is more moderns to see there.
    Fantastic colourful.
    I'm afraid that the hippopotamus is hiding in the Nile ... I can't find it.

    Hello Noel,
    I'm afraid I have missed this castle when I was in Dublin :(
    A very beautiful front view whereby the castle stands out excellently against the plain blue sky.
    The lush green overgrows almost completely the lampposts.
    Good inclusion of these South East Asian visitors.

    Hallo Hans,
    Mooie titel passend bij dit potisch landschap.
    Goed perspectief met de bomenrijen en hun weerspiegeling in het kanaal.
    De ochtendmist bepaalt de sfeer.
    Opmerkelijk is de moderne brug een eindje verder.
    PS: Ik las je antwoord aan Lars.

    Hallo Lars,
    De witte muren van het kasteel - en nog meer wanneer de zon er op schijnt - zorgt ervoor dat het een lichtbaken wordt in de donkere Luxemburgse bossen.
    Zijn ligging op de heuvel geeft het een majestueuze aanblik.
    Je zocht naar een goed standpunt om een deel van het dorp en de bossen mede in beeld te brengen.
    Heel goede beeldsamenstelling.
    Vele groeten, Paul
