    Hi Serghei,
    I must admit I am a bit surprised by this photo :)
    The lady has open arms indeed but in general this photo does not necessarily encourage people to visit Cyprus. I think Russians simply want to keep this paradise from themselves :)
    I have spent a lot of time while in Cyprus on a breathtaking sandy beach but I always wondered if it was a mistake, may be I should have visited those charming mountain villages... Seeing this photo I don't regret my decision :)
    Quite a funny contribution,

    Ciao Silvio,
    I wonder if it is the same tree which we all known from one of the most popular of your photos.
    Very impressive photograph: perfectly used silhouette of the tree. Wide angle makes all other elements unimportant and small. The tree dominates the whole world.
    Beautiful work,

    Hi Costantino,
    the strongest point of this picture is of course very abundant snow, pleasantly decorating the city. The motif of the road works so well here, leading the eye to the centre. Except for modern structures we see also some Byzantine architecture. The flag adds a lovely touch and a confirmation that this winter landscape to unexpectedly Greece!
    Beautiful work,

    Ciao Luciano,
    very interesting architecture, especially the uniquely shaped tower.
    The light was challenging but it didn't stop you from taking a great picture.
    I suppose December has scarce light and plenty of shade even around the noon.
    It seems you had a lovely ad photogenically fruitful trip this winter!
    Very well done,

    Hi Alexandre,
    beautiful sandy beaches but also photogenic rock formations! What a beautiful destination! It must be pleasure to walk around and relax taking photos.
    Wonderful well saturated colors. Lovely composition as well with the castle well placed against the green water.
    Excellent work,

    Ciao Lisa,
    they are so Scottish! as their name also implies!
    Very photogenic animals! I think I haven't seen them before moving to the UK.
    Fantastic portrait, great details, lovely blurred background.
    We had them for a while in our park but they were moved elsewhere.
    My little daughter was feeding them with carrots :)
    Beautiful work,

    Hallo Benny,
    Een mooie reeks over Oostende. Ik heb ook wel enkele foto's van de Koninklijke Gaanderijen maar niet zo bijster goed als deze.
    Verschrikkelijk dat dit zo vervallen is.
    Hier heel aantrekkelijk gepresenteerd met beide silhouetten.
    Vele groeten, Paul

    Hello Angel,
    A very pleasant view of this highly charming square.
    The colourful houses are beautifully decorated with many plants and flowers.
    The forested steep hill provides a very pretty background.

    Hello Costantino,
    Winter seems to be very severe in Greece.
    A real different view from the sunny pictures of Volos you used to present us.
    By the Greek flag fully fluttering we can deduce there must be a lot of wind which makes it feel even colder.

    Hello Danos,
    The sepia tones give the image a nostalgic emphasis.
    I really like your composition with the branches all over the left side of the picture and with the view of the Palace of Westminster on the distance.

    Bonsoir Jean,
    Le village est un peu caché entre toutes les pentes.
    Cependant, vous avez cherché et trouvé un excellent point de vue.
    En effet, une image très colorée pour le mois de janvier.
    Excellente composition et netteté!

    Hello Carlo,
    A bit an unusual sight but excellently presented in the different horizontal layers.
    Extremely colourful too and a nice contrast between the containers and the blue of the ship, the sky and the sea.

    Hallo Lars,
    Een aantrekkelijke compositie met de licht diagonale lijnen van de kanaalboorden.
    Kleurrijk is het beeld ook en we vinden ook prachtige weerspiegelingen.
    Het huis helemaal links heeft een eigenaardige gevel. In de weerspiegeling lijkt hij wel gewoon.
    Uitstekende scherpte en helderheid.
    Vele groeten, Paul

    Hello Luciano,
    This is an amazingly large abbey and with a huge terrain around it.
    It looks more like a French castle.
    You've chosen a good point of view to include all of the building.
    This isn't only the second picture of the abbey on this site. It also looks like there were very few visitors when you were there.
    Best regards, Paul

    Hello Luis,
    The first thing that attracted me on this beautiful nature picture was the fresh green colour of the trees or the vegetation on the interior volcano slopes.
    Then I discovered the houses. What a stunning setting this village has!
    A very spectacular sight!

    Hello Fred,
    The windtower is shining like made of gold. Wonderful in contrast with the blue wintersky.
    You present us here a very pretty alley with different attractive small arches, also in beautiful yellow tones.
    The dark tunnel a bit further looks mysterious while the two boys on the bike are an interesting human element.

    Hello Daniel,
    This is a fantastic picture of the skyline of Madrid composed by some famous buildings.
    To be honest, I'm more attracted by the dome and the towers of the Almudena Cathedral than by the royal palace.
    Beautiful soft colours and pretty lines of clouds in the blue sky.
