    Hello Ike,

    I like the wide angled panoramic format. Good sharpness and a nice contrast in architectural styles between the fg and the horizon. Well composed using the rule of thirds with the horizon line well positioned away from the centre. Tfs!

    Hello Miguel,

    It sort of resembles some of the Mosques in Turkey sans the minarets! Good control over perspective and the people add scale and context. The gold cupola looks great against the blue sky. Nice repetition of the arches columns and copper green domes. Perspective has been well managed. Tfs!

    Hi Paul

    Greetings from Helsinki! I like the curving blue cyan c shaped river and its warm cold color contrast against the reddish brown sand. A superb high pov with good sharpness and excellent color and saturation. The deep blue of the bg mountains adds to this wonderful shot. Tfs!

    Hi Mesut,
    what a beautiful light! So warm and pleasant. Colors so attractive and everything crispy sharp.
    Dark clouds add a dramatic touch. Very well composed with the nets in the foreground and other port motifs around.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Lars,

    You were luckier with the weather than me, with large patches of blue sky. Good sharpness and a superb view of the city of Bratislava with the cathedral of St. Martins cathedral making a great focal point and centre of interest. The blue Danube top right adds interest. Tfs!

    Hi Agnes,
    very romantic picture. Amazing atmosphere. I like the cold feeling here. The sky is fantastic and so is its reflection. Good that you have included the solid diagonal piece in the foreground to anchor the reflection in the reality.
    Very well done!

    Hi Ike,

    The blue sky makes a superb backdrop to the agava plant and enhances the graphic element. Good sharpness and excellent color, density levels and saturation. Punchy light contrasts and smart choice of a vertical frame to accentuate the height. Tfs!

    Hi Will,
    very creative work here, quite opposite approach to my postcard style photos. I like to do both but in the lack of time I start with postcards... and usually there is never time for creative shots anymore...
    These reflections mean that you also had a great light there. Very pleasant warm color tones.
    The distorted reflections work very intriguing, fortunately I was there so I know what reflects and what is reflected.
    This place has a great potential.
    Great work here!

    PS By the way: there is a mess in the UK regarding the counties. There are those historical counties or ceremonial purposes counties. You have place Manchester where it historically belongs but there is actually here a separate Manchester county. TE is using the ceremonial approach. I see all the time people putting Newcastle in Northumberland although there is special Tyne and Wear county...

    Hi Noel,
    living in Ireland for 5 years of course I could not miss this place. It is one of 3 UNESCO world heritage sites on the Island. I visited all of them anyway.
    I think I even have a quite similar photo of this in my TE gallery but without the Chinese model :)
    Great idea both for a photo and for designing such useful "tripods".

    Excellent work!

    Hallo Wolfgang,
    Very well preserved Polish Fiat 125p. One of the few car types which were available in communist Poland.
    Great idea for tours. I have seen for example similar cab tours in Belfast were they take you to show all the "sensitive" areas normally not even market on the tourist map. Similarly here: I guess one could see so some typical communist time architecture or so.
    Very well done!!

    Hi Gert,
    children indeed add a very nice touch here. I have a little daughter so most photos which I take nowadays are children photos :)
    Wet pavement is another very photogenic subject, here it also creates pleasant geometric effect.
    It seems you have well covered Polish major cities.
    Very well done!

    Hi Arnie,
    Lancashire is a county which I did not paint yet on my TE map although I was physically so close recently.
    Nice spot here: the tower looks quite intriguing in the middle of the moorland on top of the hill.
    Very well done,

    beautiful landscape and I would never guess it is Europe. Interesting combination of the sand dunes and agave plants. Great natural colors and no traces of civilization.

    Hi John,
    beautiful picture, very picturesque spot.
    I like the colorful townhouses and how richly decorated they are. The weather was lovely with great colors as a result. The boats add a nice touch in the foreground.

    Bonjour Denis,
    I like very much lighthouses, they are photogenic. This one is so pretty and has a lovely location. What I like in this photo in particular is a slightly elevated perspective which resulted in an interesting effect and as well allow to include people but without them covering the lighthouse.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Farhat,
    very interesting structure, I like the original design and rich decoration. I think something changed the color to very green. The sky is a bit greenish too. It does result in an interesting final effect of an old print.
    Thanks for sharing,

    beautiful structure, so nicely decorated. I like how you have presented it framed on both sides with the palm trees which add an exotic touch.
