    Hello Ally,
    This is really a fantastic picture of the Forbidden City.
    And the foreground still looks forbidden, even today.
    Excellent composition !
    Very well presented.

    Hello Piotr,
    The tulip fields have also conquered Poland!
    Very beautiful with the huge trees on the background and some of them are even blooming.
    Spring has arrived in your country.
    Beautifully with 2/3 of the picture reserved for the tulips.
    Best regards, Paul

    Dag Lars,
    En hier zien we dan je verblijf in het midden van jullie hoofdstad aan het plein met de vele bezoekers en bekroond met een groene koepel. Prachtig stulpje heb je daar!
    De opeenvolgende grachten en lanen vormen een prachtig zicht vanuit de lucht.
    Leuker om naar te kijken dan naar google map en je kan je hier veel beter oriënteren vermits de foto niet loodrecht naar beneden genomen werd.
    Vele groeten, Paul

    Hallo Lars,
    Er valt nog veel licht op de bomen rechts en op het witte gebouw waarvan de kleur mooi weerspiegeld wordt in de rivier.
    De molen torent indrukwekkend boven alles uit.
    Door de donkere onweerslucht wordt de voorgrond prachtig beklemtoond.
    Vele groeten,

    Hello Alessandro,
    A region where the Meuse flows through a truly natural area.
    Very beautiful with the small island in the middle of the river and with the densely forested hilly shores.
    Beautiful reflections in the water.
    And a pretty sky on the background.

    Hello Neyvan,
    Skies that are on fire are always such a fantastic natural phenomenon.
    Here the blue grey part even looks like the smoke of a fire.
    I like the silhouettes of the leafless trees on the foreground.

    Hi Danos,
    very interesting presentation. I have heard about it of course but it is interesting to read about details and see the reportage photo here.
    The scene looks quite elegant with the ladies looking like goddesses in the dresses which fit also the decoration of the scene.
    Great moment, very well captured,

    Hello Danos,
    A magnificent shot of this very particular event.
    Fantastic that you could attend this and you were excellently placed to take this splendid picture in a great composition.
    The stage, of course, bears the Greek national colours.

    Bonjour Cricri,
    yes I suppose this is a typical landscape from a western movie.
    Farm house in the middle of nowhere.
    Very attractive of course with the red rock formations in the distance and the red earth in all directions.
    If you could just switch the SUV cars to horses it could pretend to be an old photograph :)
    Excellent work,

    Hello Mesut,
    A very clear and sharp presentation of the wonderful extraterrestrial world of Cappadocia.
    Beautifully soft tones of the rocks in the open countryside.
    I guess this wasn't your first visit of Cappadocia ...
    Is it Üchisar that we see at the right ?

    Hello Ally,
    The Gate of Supreme Harmony is excellently presented here. We can enjoy the beautiful and colourful architectural details.
    A nice red-blue contrast.
    The many visitors provide a very lively scene. It's really busy on both stairs.

    Hello Luis,
    I remember this square in Zagreb. Who could ever forget that wonderful church with the special patterns and images on its tiles?
    Presented from a very good angle.
    The red of the tiles is striking against the splendid blue sky.
    Well composed. Excellent sharpness.

    Hello Chris,
    Good you mention very explicitly that these columns are natural geological formations. This is so unreal. I remember your previous picture but it still looks so unusual and astonishing.
    Excellent clear and sharp presentation with a wonderful sky on the background.

    Hello Noel,
    The weather in Budapest in April was apparently no better than in my country.
    Despite the overcast sky we still get a clear and quite colourful view.
    The building with the orange facade catches the eye.
    Nice framing with the plants on the foreground.

    Hallo John,
    Een prachtfoto die één en al Brugge uitstraalt.
    Met uitzondering van de voorgrond oogt het als een mooi schilderij.
    De bladeren aan de takken zeggen ons dat het al lente is doch op de cruciale plaatsen zijn er nog geen zodat we een goed zicht krijgen op de achterliggende huizen en torens.
    De donkere lucht toont ons goed hoe het weer de laatste dagen geweest is. Hopelijk komt er weldra beterschap. De maand april was kouder dan de voorbije decembermaand.
    Opvallend weinig toeristen op deze foto. Misschien zochten ze allen elders de warmte op.
    Uitstekende compositie, scherpte en toch nog een heel helder beeld.
    Vele groeten, Paul

    Hi Serghei,
    I remember well this spot. I have mentioned that the building in the centre is Liverpool Town Hall. It was taken from this point. We have passed the Queen Victoria Monument.
    The weather was quite miserable, yet you did a great job presenting it here. First of all I don't remember anyone showing the Liverpool town hall before.
    The car and bus are a bit annoying but the also add a specific touch.
    I like your black framing. To be honest I would always frame my photos in black, but I am too lazy :)
    Even though the sky was quite bad, the place looks attractive here.
    Great postcard-like presentation exactly as I like it.

    I do feel like we were may be going in some places too fast and in other too slow. May be we have spent too much time at the demonstration or in the museum? But it was challenging having a limited time :)
