    Hi Wolfgang,
    I like photos which include a lot of inscriptions in foreign alphabets. It always introduces some interesting exotic atmosphere. This alphabet is not that foreign to me as I learned Russian for a long time but still I have never visited a country speaking this language...
    Well spotted scene with ladies wearing such different styles.
    Nice reportage,

    Ciao Silvio,
    beautiful blue hour with the best color of the sky one can ever wish for. I really like this color tone. It goes also well with the golden walls! Very attractive geometry too.
    Excellent work,

    Hello Costantino,
    I happened to miss this fine photo. This is a popular and well known view, but the colours and postures of the soldiers in front of the grey wall are superbly captured. I can read what is written on the wall, but unfortunately I don't understand it, but the letters have a great graphic beauty and contribute much to the composition.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Gerrit,
    You have captured the game very well. This photo has a great sense of movement. Except for the ball lying there, waiting top be kicked, these boys might just as well have been performing some kind of dance. Especially the nearest boy is superbly captured.

    Hello Mesut,
    Pigeons are always irresistible to small children who love to chase them around, disturbing their meals. You took a charming photo of this little boy who looks like he is contemplating whether to make another rush. It's a very nice capture from daily life.

    Hello Maciej,
    This is a beautiful and impressive church, but it is surprising to find a church as big as this way out in the countryside. Where is the congregation? I guess conditions were very different 900 years ago. I like the POV where the different tones of green create a fine foreground.
    Regards,

    Hello Chris,
    A fine church seen from a good angle entirely dedicated to the black and white domes. Clearly this building must have been restored in recent times. It looks too good to be untouched since it was rebuilt in the 1540's. I wonder if any government of independent Moldova has had enough money or if it was actually done in the Soviet days.
    Best regards,

    This was a well spotted moment of relaxation and natural behavior, not intended for the tourists. It's a colourful and captivating photo. These girls are really prettier than the average graffiti :-).

    Hello Serghei,
    This is a not so often seen view from Japan, making me think more of the Himalayas. The dense forest, all covered in snow, creates a superb foreground to the view of the rugged mountains.The mainly clear blue sky is made more interesting by the small dark clouds.

    Hello Sasha,
    It is not necessary to travel around the world to take good photos (even though I have done that). Interesting photos can be found in your own neighborhood if you have eyes to see the opportunities. This is a fine wall with nice lines and colours and you made it more interesting and surprising with the deliberate tilt. It is a photo that nobody could miss.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hi John,
    beautiful composition! I like the pleasant light with long shades and well saturated colors. The spring has clearly arrived, I can spot the daffodils. The line of the horizon is nicely decorated with straight line of trees. Very well spotted!
    Beautiful work.
    Have a great weekend,

    Hi Danos,
    lovely composition with the inverted boat in the foreground. Nice rock formations too. It has a feeling of a beach and it reminds me a bit California, where I spent couple of years. Fantastic colors, well saturated and natural.

    Czesc Krzysztof,
    wow ale super reportaz nocny z Ostrowa Tumskiego w Poznaniu. Ze wstydem musze przyznac ze pomimo iz bylem kilka razy w Poznaniu to jednak na tyle krotko ze nigdy tam nie dotarlem. Piekne miejsce wyjatkowa w swoim rodzaju architektura. No i nocny klimat dodaje uroku. Ta kompozycja z mostem wydaje sie najbardziej atrakcyjna, zastanawiam sie jednak czy nie warto byloby nieco blizej przyciac tych glownych elementow pozbywajac sie ciemnych. Rozumiem jednak ze i te ciemne obszary maja swego rodzaju urok - ciekawym kontrastem niebiesiego i brazowego.
    Pozdrawiam serdecznie,
    M
