    Hello Rob,
    I don't understand the technical details the way you do, but even as a total amateur in engineering I can enjoy the photo with the impressive depth and the contrasts of red and blue/grey. It's definitely an advantage to have a few persons around (probably hard to avoid anyway.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Serghei,
    A postcard this isi for sure, but you found a good angle which shows the bridge as impressive as it really is. There is a wonderful light and fine contrasts between grey and blue. What looks like the blurred leftovers of a jet plane's vapor trail seems to be continued in the blue and white construction carrying the bridge.

    Hello Costantino,
    This is a very eye-catching and bright composition. The rather strong waves have a wonderful blend of blue and white tones and make a perfect contrast to the quiet and dark blue water on the other side of the pier. The line of cars and a truck waiting on the pier provide colourful and graphically attractive elements. You balanced the composition very nicely.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Ana,
    This is another fantastic composition from your long walk with the shepherds and their animals. There is a dramatic contrast between the green hillside and the dark blue sky and the animals are spread out on a very long line going up the hill. The shepherd is well placed to the side. The view of the wind park on top of the hill describes a meeting of old traditions and modern technology. I love the rather dark tones of the well saturated colours.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Silvio,
    Another photo that makes me so sad. Almost 300 people have been found dead and so many houses have been destroyed. A great part of the local cultural heritage has been lost.This is an original way to present a photo of this kind, but the message is drastically clear.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Jean,
    Either the exhibition inside is very interesting, and she's eager to see it, or the naked young lady is trying to hide inside before anyone else sees her. The connection between her, the sign and the door makes this a much more amusing photo than if you had isolated the sculpture against a totally neutral background. There is no need to apologize for the title. It couldn't have been better.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Paul,
    I just found this photo which I had not seen before. You combine a lot of the beauty of my city in one picture with a very relaxed atmosphere and fantastic colours and light. I have seen this view many times, of course, but I am still amazed that my city looks so nice.

    Hi Alex
    Interesting how the weather or possibly the heavy mist has turned this to almost black and white boosting the atmosphere with superb glimpse of the great waterfalls behind. The palm trees with all the contributing elements work hand in hand in making this a success shot. You managed the exposure really well too. Superb work, Congrats
    Thanks to your brief notes.

    Hi Danos
    Looks a charming place to unwind allowing me to take in the beauty and charm of this beautiful Mediterranean spot, exceptional lighting and composition on this lovely harbour scene. Pristine boats there with lots of interesting items to photograph especially i love the fresh steely blue water against white on shore. Lots more to grab our attention. Indeed a wonderful capture
    and thks for sharing, Congrats.

    Hi Benny
    A dream machine with its unique burbling sound and gorgeous artistry of the design's strong lines! glad that someone takes such great care of this machine and you find it in a small town in Central Java!! It's a beautiful close-up & viewpoint showing a feast of reflections in the gleaming chrome work and lovely the way the two circles balance each other. Dramatic shot indeed suits the Harley image and well worth viewing large!! Great capture and thks for sharing.

    Hello Fabiano,
    This is a classic view, more than most places, and the beautiful architecture tells us why. The people in the square animate the view, and especially one woman in red and one in yellow add bright spots.

    The curve of the bay provides strong lead in lines and the blue sky adds a splendid backdrop. Good sharpness and nice repetition of the moored boats in the harbor. Tfs!

    The diagonal canal adds strong lead in lines and perspective as well as dynamism. Good sharpness and density levels that have given punchy light contrasts & excellent saturation. Merci!

    Dear Gert,

    It is a street photo: a mountain street photo. :) I think you found a quite suitable place to take the shot, where the other people are not distracting, but make the picture more vivid. I wonder how tall this wall was?

    I like the WS photos as well.

    Best Wishes,
