    Hi Mesut
    wow, those are some beautiful tall trees!
    seeing those trees, the green hills, and the grey brooding skyline almost make me forget about the ancient ruins in the fg.

    wonderful light! the exposure is perfect.
    well done
    cheers

    Hi Federico
    love this one!
    Jama Mashid was one of my favorite places we visited in ALL of India!

    such a beautiful Mosque.
    in your photo, you don't even need the Mosque in the bg, the colors of the saris and their reflections are A+

    excellent scene, well done
    cheers

    Hi Nicolas
    its not too often we get to see the fisherman in his boat moving away from us like this, taken from behind.

    I like that you left out the skyline, focusing in on just the marina-type subjects.
    there's nothing in the frame to disturb the scene.

    funny looking yellow color on the water too.
    nice shot
    cheers

    Hi Serge
    Oh i remember this view quite well :)
    lots of good memories from here.

    the time you took this photo it looks a little hazy, but thats not your fault :)

    I like how the dome towers over everything else, and how it dominates the scene.
    enjoy your Sunday

    Hello Stephen,
    this is an elegant, mysterious and very agreeable patio, the palazzo must be very special, maybe had an important role in the city's history and is a point of reference today as well. It is well preserved but also has the air of a building that is getting old gracefully. I like how you make the viewer feel surrounded by the walls, colours and architectural details. I like the perspective, the lighting and the peaceful atmosphere. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely evening,

    Hello dear Takero,
    this is a beautiful picture, so unpretentious, eloquent and touching. I like very much how your tight composition accentuated the closeness of mother and son, the love, trust and understanding. Apart from their expressions, I love the role of the hands too. The colours are very lovely and there's a fine, intimate atmosphere with so soft shadows. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely day,

    Hi Miro,
    wow, this is a fantastic POv to present this rail route in all its glory. The viaduct is beautiful and the train is captured while making a nice turn in the frame.
    You have been there at the best possible time and you have perfectly used the opportunity!

    quite an interesting architecture of the chapel. I like this angle and also the lovely sky used as a background. Great well saturated colors make it really eye catching.

    Bonjour Cricri,
    spectacular picture selected for the occasion. Happy Anniversary! This is really a very round one.
    I know what you mean -I have also a lot of good feelings about TE but also some negative ones. It could be easily so much better...

    Very impressive capture. I like the sun being at the border of the thick clouds and the clean sky. Interestingly the round shape of it is reflected in the water.
    Very attractive effect, great work!!

    Bonjour Nicou,
    another marvel brought to the beautiful Swiss countryside with the change of seasons. The poppies (which have such a lovely name in French) look bright and delightful, they make such a warm and cheerful impact in the scenery of vast fields and imposing mountains. Your picture has great depth and perspective, agreeable clarity and atmosphere. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely evening,

    Ciao Carlo,
    e' molto interessante indovinare cosa rappresenta e significa questa scultura particolare, sarebbe utile avere delle informazioni ma non mi spiace affatto trovarne delle interpretazioni personali. La scena che hai catturato e' irrepetibile e d intrigante, la tua composizione ed i colori che hai catturato sono gratificanti e piacevoli. Bella e suggestiva la scena inclusa nel workshop. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buona serata,

    Hola Luis,
    lovely presentation of the cloister. They are quite challenging to photograph well. I like the perfectly straight perspective here and the repeated motif of the double columns. The vase on the other side makes a nice element to focus on.
    Excellent work,

    Castelluccio sembra sempre maestoso, intrigante ed invitante nelle tue foto. Questa presentazione da vicino e' interessantissima, i dettagli ed i colori sugli edifici sono superbi ed e' bello che hai incluso anche il sentiero per arrivarci. L' atmospfera e' particolare ed affascinante, la montagna e le nuvole fanno uno sfondo suggestivo e meraviglioso. Complimenti e grazie!

    Hello Jean,
    the town is picturesque and must be interesting to explore in any kind of weather but it looks really splendid on a sunny day of spring. I like that this broad, well balanced presentation includes a colourful daily life scene. Clarity is great and we pass from several eye-catching focal points on the way to the background. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely evening,

    Hi Ike,
    I have just written to someone that last week I have visited one of the ancient archeological sites and it is so hard to show them in an interesting way... Having recently this experience I can appreciate your picture here where you contrast the old ruins with the surrounding nature and a modern road passing nearby.
    Of course the interesting note and provoking title add a nice touch further enhancing the interest.
    Very well done!!

    Hello John,
    I like very much the simple, smooth and graphic rendering of this scene. The path marked by black poles, the blue tent and the long cargo ship stand out remarkably and make up a very intriguing setting. I love the smooth colours, the striking role of the perspective and the shadows. You used the light very aptly for an artistic and timeless image. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely evening,

    wow you captured this wonderful view at a truly extraordinary light. The town panorama is lit by the warm sun rays while the sky appears so much darker -contrasting pleasantly with the architecture.
    Excellent final effect,
