    Bonjour Denis

    Fine minimalism and gentle, natural colours. A bit different and great post. I think I'd have cropped off that stretch of sand at the top to create an even greater sense of isolation.

    Hello Krysztof

    Great use of the old wooden window to create a frame. The nature scene beyond is really wonderful in all its simplicity. The swing in the tree is a nice little detail.

    Hello Denis,
    This is a very nice composition with a minimalistic touch. The eye-catching man is surrounded by soft shapes of only two colours. You cropped the photo neatly. The WS is a good photo too but a more conventional postcard, so I think you made a good decision to use this as the official upload.
    Kind regards,

    Great framing, very Rotterdam. I like the vibrant colours and the Family Nuts name :)

    Hello Mohammad,
    The dark clouds enhance this view of the sunset. The sun is perfectly captured and is beautifully reflected. The fishing rod is an original feature but is well placed exactly parallel to the orange line.

    An earlier post that I had missed. Shame on me, 'cause it is a beauty. Wonderful soft pastel paint, a bit bizarre to use it for a military construction. Great low light creates excellent shadows. I also like the tight crop.

    Congratulations.

    Hello Philippe,
    It's a very pleasant photo where you captured the bird in a beautiful environment. The moss on the stone has created a fine texture and also matches the surrounding leaves perfectly. The background is sufficiently blurred.

    Fully agree on the light being amazing, Craig. Good of you to wait for the carrybag man to come along. My only regret is that I don't understand the slogan on the wall. Who or what are chibos and why does someone want them dead?

    Hello Lars,
    After seeing all three windmills anyone should be entitled to a rest with a coffee or maybe a beer in this nice square. It looks like a pleasant place and the many people sitting outside on this day in early autumn create a fine ambience.

    Hello Krzysztof,
    You used the wooden frame of the window perfectly to frame the beautiful view of the trees and the lawns. I like very much the different tones and textures of the grass and the soil. The colours are beautiful and are probably enhanced by the dark frame.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Neyvan

    Another amazing shot from the road. The red mountains, the road, the tunnel and the stream below remind of some landscapes I've seen in remote parts of China.

    Superb light, great timing to get that car in just right & a truly excellent picture! Congratulations.

    Hello Craig,
    Believe it or not, but I might have tried to take this photo too. I am also fascinated by such old walls, especially when they are as rough as this and contain so many details of different colours. The light is really perfect here but it wouldn't have been any good without a person stepping in front of the camera. That man's shirt is well chosen. The graffiti is of course among the finest details.
    Best wishes,
    Gert

    Hello Pavle,
    This is an unusual composition, but I like the vertical accent and the fine balance of grey and yellow tones. The two small signs are attractive eye-catchers and the texture of the walls is well captured. It's a kind of almost abstract composition.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Brenda,
    It's almost a pity that this is only here temporarily. It makes a spectacular feature in this classic part of the city, among the tall buildings, and would probably in due time be as appreciated as many other well known NYC sights. But maybe the material would not last for ever. I like the angle of this photo and the fine light on the sculpture (balloon?), but maybe my favorite detail is actually the silhouettes of the three persons. They are so perfectly seen against the lighter area.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hi dear Craig

    Typical cathedol that is common in South Europe and middle America. Tight and reasonable framework is quite favorable to see.

    All the best and have a good day! Takero
