    Hello Miro,

    Missed this one. I like the texture screen effect. Good density levels that have rendered superb lighting contrasts and saturation. Terrific warm vs cold color contrasts between the yellow and red facades of the buildings and the blue sky. I also like the wall murals and frescoes. Nice repetition of the street lamps. Tfs.

    Hello Nicole,

    It is hard to go wrong with a shot from Venice. Just about every image I took of 100 or so was worthy of uploading to TE. Here is no exception. Good pastel colours with superb sharpness and nice reflections in the water. Excellent repetition of the gondolas in a diagonal row, adding dynamism. Tfs.

    Ciao Francesco

    Wonderful saturated colour with marvellous reflections and effective tight framing. I like the striking warm cold colour contrasts between the red, yellow and blue. Good to include a section of the boat at left. The dappled sunlight on the prow is superb. Looks like a painting! Tfs.

    Hello Silvio,

    A superb high pov with good sharpness and attractive minimalist colours. I like the graphic elements of the lighter toned village walls and facades against the darker toned bg of shadowed hills together with the grove of dark fg pines in front of the village. Tfs.

    Hello Stephen

    I went there in the 80's long before Martin Bryant did a copycat of the Dunblane Scotland shootings, in 1996. The scaffolding and fence look new to me as does the excavation. Good sharpness and the trees at right add depth and layering. Excellent colour and saturation. The yellow flowers and orange supports contrast well against the blue sky. Tfs!

    Hello Gert,

    A superb daily life scene from Nepal with vibrant color and good sharpness, especially for an analogue film shot. The shallow fg dof work well here. Nice repetition of the wicker baskets. The profiled mother with her nose ring and child makes a fine focal point. Tfs.

    Hi Malgo,

    I like the square format and the superb sharpness. The man at right in the red shirt animates the scene and his attire contrasts well against the blue grey tones to give a pleasing warm cold color contrast. The open panel in the door provides interest. I can see some Islamic designs that support the Muslim conquests mentioned. Tfs.

    Bonjour Christiane,
    the color of the water is amazing indeed. It changes beautifully from the green tones to more bluish further in the distance.
    Nice rocks in the foreground, interesting brown color and unique shape as well.
    Very well done!
    Have a great weekend,

    Hallo Wolfgang,
    interesting contrast of this colorful town with the photos of the sandstorm, the other photos seem like a scene from a dream, foggy and dirty while this is so colorful and clear -as if you woke up from a nightmare.
    Beautiful flowers decorate the square nicely. Even the ad seems to go well with the surrounding.
    Very well done,

    Ciao Silvio,
    lovely composition here. I like such busy compositions with plenty of various elements making the artistic mess. The view behind seems to be interestingly framed with the buildings in the foreground. I like the lamp hanging down from above as well.
    Very well spotted,

    very interesting structure. You have captured it under an interesting sky with relatively heavy and yet well lit clouds. Very interesting note too.

    Hi John,
    the tram indeed seems like coming from another era, but one can see it as an interesting element too complementing the old town scene. Composition is great with the monument making a lovely foreground and the great church in the middle of the attention.
    It is quite sad to see the constructions wrapped around the tower. I would be so angry to come there and see the construction, but live not too far so you can always come back later :)
    Beautiful work,

    ale tu pieknie! W mojej podrozy po Portugalii bardzo powaznie rozwazalem zeby zahaczyc o Evore ale w koncu tego nie zrobilem. No coz bede mial co ogladac kiedy tam kiedys wroce...
    Piekne miejsce i miales znakomite swiatlo ktore dobrze wykorzystales. Doskonala kompozycja z fontanna na pierwszym planie, interesujacym kosciolem w glebi I czarownymi stylowymi kamiennicami. Nawe niebo ladnie udekorowane jest ciekawym szlaczkiem, a dziewczyna na fontannie wyglada na miejscowa.
    Wspaniala praca!

    Hi Ike,
    very well done firework photo. I have always problem with fireworks. Here you caught few of them and in real color and above some town silhouettes. May be a bit pity that there is not much of the town lights visible anymore -it could maybe add to the mood.
    Still the effect is very attractive,

    Hi Sasha,
    amazing effect with the different colors of the ground. It seems as if there were two different seasons in this photo: autumn in the foreground and spring further in the distance. The color gradient is the highlight! Well used silhouettes of the trees as well.
    Very well seen and captured,

    I love lone trees. This is such a simple and yet impressive composition. I like the all green setting and the two horizontal a bit tilted lines which enhance the geometry of the picture.

    Hi Bev,
    yes I am afraid the English summer is over. Sadly most of these days I spent at work so I could only enjoy it through the window...
    Spectacular scene here. Rarely we can be in the very place where the weather front is approaching. Here you have also perfectly used it to wrap the building with the wave of the clouds.
    Amazing contrast of the blue sky with the storm approaching.
    Excellent work!
    Have a great weekend,

    wow this is so pretty! The setting of the ruins is very attractive or you have just composed it in a nice way with the green vegetation framing the ruins from all directions and the interestingly shaped mountains around.
    Very picturesque, exactly as I like it,
