    Hello Dimitris,

    A wonderful blue hour view, with fantastic colours and a very nice, well balanced compo. The atmosphere of serenity and pure beauty is awesome. A very inspired and inspiring work, indeed.

    Hi Ray,

    Here the lack of sharpness seems to be one of the things well done rather than a flaw, as it enhances a certain mood of impressionist painting that it is naturally produced by that gorgeous landscape. The POV is great and you were very clever profiting that to make a great compo.

    TFS, regards, Josť.

    Hello Wolfgang,

    The image is very nicely balanced within that tight framing. But what makes it really special is the suggested play of looks between the human figure and the statues. The one of the right is fantastically placed!

    Hi Mike,

    Quite attractive, this tight compo. The boats make an interesting pattern with catchy colours, that somehow contrasts with the greyness of the light and relative absence of colour of the bg.

    Hello Josť,

    In our 2011 visit to Portugal with Delilah, Porto was the first step on the tour (London-to-Rome). We were crazy about the city, and of course the J.C. Rowling connection, seen in these two photos were especially appealing to Delilah: the Staircase and Harry Potter in Porto.

    It's a gorgeous alpine view, taken form a great POV. It is a bit pity that the background is so hazy.

    Hello Silvio,

    As usual, you've provided an excellent note with this shot of Piazza Pianciani in Spoleto. The presence of the two pedestrians give it a touch of human interest and scale. I see that the photo dates back 14 1/2 years, and yet it is sharp and well exposed.

    Hello Tiffany,

    Although they are less than two hours from my home in Virginia, I am embarrassed to admit I have not visited the Luray Caverns. As a matter of fact, they are on my short list of places to visit in the area. We always take for granted those sites that people come from great distances to see. You've taken an excellent shot of the caverns, and apparently a tripod has come in handy.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Serghei,

    Simple, but very nice and powerful visually. Not much to say and much to appreciate... Besides the pattern formed by the timber, the textures also contribute to make it a great photo.

    Hi Pavle,

    Specially from the thumbnail it reminds a view that I know too well (see my post). The light and colours are wonderful and the skyline and waterline make an intersting profile which is nicely place following the rule of thirds.

    Hello Alexander,

    A wonderful indoor view and a graphic compo of great visual impact. I am very fond of these upwards POV's, but often they are are unbalanced, so I am am impressed how this one is so neatly arranged. The light is also wonderful.

    Hello Rob,

    Indeed it is a fascinating picture, no matter how right you are about the "cultural crime" that those buildings represent by being there, so outplaced. The haze and the compressed POV render a curious efect that makes the background look like a smooth curtain or a big screen, that all that people is appreciating.

    Hi Ryszard,

    The iron structure produces an amazing pattern and the POV gives a great sense of depth. I like also the presence of the tiny human figures, a nice human presence in that industrial environment. Very well seen and done.

    Hi Ike,

    A good presentation of those ruins of a historic monument that reminds a much romantic moment in history (let's forget about the fact that probably the reality had very little of romantic...). You chose a nice POV and the clarity is great.

    Hi Craig,

    I guess it would be a good photo even without that curious coincidence of having a tandem of baby carriages passing under a sign mentioning tandem. The colours are attractive, and so it looks the woman, and the POV is also good, Very well seen and captured!

    Hi Gosia,

    An interesting image, very well composed. It is amusing how the boy on th grafitti seems to be saying to the walking man something like "I don't give a damn about your lousy life, I love mine". I like also the presence of the graffiti on the right.

    Hello Farhat,

    A touching image that is a great capture of the seemingly hard daily life of those children. Their faces are very expressive and the smile of the girl on the right is precious. The POV was very well chosen, producing a nicely balanced image,

    It is a good title for such a joyful image. You did a good job capturing their joy and the interesting situation (much politically incorrect, security wise :-) with the tight POV.
