    Hello Angel,
    By chance I came across this older picture.
    It's a stunning view of the beautiful white town on the hill whereby the brown towers of the churches rise out above everything else.
    The diagonal lines of the thick clouds make a splendid composition.
    Surely one of the most beautiful pictures I've ever seen of Arcos.
    Best regards, Paul

    Bonjour Denis,
    Ici ce sont la lumière et les couleurs des nuages qui font la photo intéressante.
    Une bonne composition et une excellente netteté.

    Hello Ike,
    Both pictures give us a very attractive view of a very special street. I've seen pictures of it before and I know for sure that if I will ever be in Edinburgh I surely must see this street.
    It looks a bit like two different streets. Is Victoria Street the name for the whole?
    The contrast between the upper and the lower part could not be any bigger.
    Where the upper part seems rather monotonous, it looks like party time downstairs. Or ... the paint factory went on strike before it was time to start at the upper part.
    I would even suspect that those who live at the upper part do not really like the lower part and vice-versa.
    Anyway, a very special street and you presented it excellently.
    If only the Scottish sky could be a bit more blue :) Do people from Israel not become a little bit sad after some days in Scotland ?
    Best regards, Paul

    Hello Piotr,
    A splendid view from in the park, not only of the presidential palace but also of the modern tubular building that wasn't finished when I was in Tblisi in 2013.
    You provided this picture with a very attractive foreground. The trees and the flowers give an extra dimension to the picture and a very green and relaxed appearance of the center of Georgia's capital.
    Excellently executed.
    Best regards, Paul

    Hi Costantino,
    very romantic sunset capture. I like how you have placed the silhouettes of people sitting on the rocks and enjoying the view.
    Amazing colors of the sky!

    Czesc Piotr,
    wspanialy widok. Bardzo atrakcyjne swiatlo. Wydaje sie jakby dokola wszystko bylo w cieniu a Ty skupiles sie na fragmencie doskonale oswietlonym. Bardzo ladny efekt!
    Rzezba tych gor jest tak bogata w ksztalty i kolory. Z przyjemnoscia mozna na ten widok patrzec, w naturze pewnie jeszcz wieksze robi to wrazenie.
    Doskonala praca, gratulacje,

    Hi Ney,
    what a lovely spot! I like the structure in the foreground but what is probably the highlight here are amazing colors, wonderful light and spectacular sky! The blue color framed with the green vegetation looks so eye catching!
    I like also the lovely pattern of clouds in the sky, so dynamic!
    Excellent capture!!

    Czesc Malgorzata,
    ja zawsze mowie ze tutaj podrozujemy nie tylko w przestrzeni ale rowniez w czasie. Oczywiscie najbardziej widoczne jest to w zdjeciach Gerta ale i inni dodaja zdjecia archiwalne mniej lub bardziej.
    Mialas bardzo ladna pogode za kazdym razem w Brugii.
    Podziwiam swietna jakosc zdjecia z 1980, moje zdjecia sprzed okresu cyfrowego sa beznadziejne. Najladniejsze swiatlo mialas prawdopodobnie za trzecim razem.
    Third time is a charm. Alle gute Dinge sind drei. Do trzech razy sztuka :)
    Swietne zestawienia bardzo mi sie podobaja! Ja niestety nie bylem tam jeszcze ani razu :( Ale na pewno kiedys sie wybiore :) Postaram sie wtedy zrobic zdjecie z tego samego miejsca :)

    Hello Pedro,
    The central building of this university is built in an elegant architecture.
    Your point of view, the wide steps and the use of the wide angle lens present it in an imposing way.
    The blue sky with the thick cotton clouds make a beautiful backdrop.

    Hello Lisa,
    I've never seen this kind of completely black goats but on this picture they seem to be quite kind.
    I remember once in Italy during a nature walk I was followed by a very young goat. It stayed by my side all the time. I wanted to get rid of it when I arrived in a village and everyone in the street started laughing. The goat stayed by my side till I entered a small shop that also had an exit door in another street. A ridiculous situation but the goat was very sweet.
    In this landscape of light coloured tall grass and gray walls black goats are a striking sight.
    Best regards, Paul

    Hola Luis,
    very well spotted view. Great composition. I like the houses aligned along the narrow street. Attractive mountains appear from behind, they give a hint about a wonderful location of this village.
    I enjoy very much your series from this island, I am really tempted to visit all of Canaries someday.
    Excellent work,

    Bonsoir Christiane,
    I see you are oscillating between Belgium and US photos :)
    This is a lovely view which feels very much indeed as a scene from a Western movie.
    Taken from a wooden patio with the saloon in the distance.
    Nice side light with attractive long shades, I see it was winter.
    Very interesting atmosphere,
    Great reportage,

    Hello Ourania,
    On the Greek islands the number of people in public places should be very different during the different seasons.
    Here we get indeed a sense of desolation with the empty terrace and with the sea without a boat.
    The overall colour of the picture remains blue. So the image still isn't dreary.

    Hi Alexandre,
    I would never guess it was a lighthouse but it does make sense to have a lighthouse in such a viewpoint! Fantastic view stretching so far away, the lighthouse adds a beautiful aspect here. Wonderful natural colors as well.
    Great reportage from such an underrepresented country on TE!

    Hi Bev,
    lovely rural composition. I like the winter light here with nice contrasts which contribute to the feeling of depth. Well used fence and road in the foreground. Also the tree branches decorate the scene nicely.
    Let's hope we have a beautiful and photogenic winter this year :)

    Hi Ike,
    very attractive view from Edinburgh old town. I think I like more the workshop photo for slightly more colors and pleasant perspective with several layers of houses. Here as well we have a jigsaw of styles squeezed into a busy frame.
    Very well done!

    beautiful evening view, fantastic architecture especially the dome. You have well captured the lovely atmosphere of this old town. The extra photos are also quite interesting, I like especially the one with cafe in the foreground and the modern panorama further on the horizon. Very impressive.
    Great reportage again!

    Hi Rob,
    fantastic color of the roof indeed. Windows are so nicely shaped, and make a lovely repeated motif.
    I suppose these are Canadian national colors. Great light, a play of light and shadow adds a nice touch as well.
    Very well seen and captured,

    Hi Costantino,
    fantastic winter scenery, well used motif of the road. It turns pleasantly in your frame. The snow is so abundant, I would never ever guess you get this much snow in Greece! We didn't have any snow in England this year yet.
    I like very much your title: a little bit funny because winter is know for the black and white only.
    Great work!
