    Hi Chris,
    I love the variety of green color tones here.
    It feels so desolate with no traces of civilization.
    The vegetation seems quite lush on this side while across the lake there is a relatively dry landscape.
    Since my "travel" is now very much decided by my little daughter, I have actually a chance to get there since Corfu is a very probable destination and it is not that far away from this spot...
    Great reportage,

    Hi Chris,
    beautiful architecture of this church, the towers behind have the characteristic Byzantine design while the front tower is so popular in former Austro-Hungarian empire.
    Captured in a great light with fantastic foreground: these people playing chess make such a nice scene!
    It feels so peaceful and quiet.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Luis,
    spectacular landscape and captured in such a great moment of sunrise (probably).
    I guess Vale de la Muerte translates to Death Valley, having its counterpart in California. I suppose landscapes like this have created universal feelings regardless the country or language.
    I like very much desert landscapes so this is something really beautiful for me and so I would never call it a death valley...
    Anyway it is an amazing composition with the tourist/hiker enjoying this decisive moment, sitting at the elevated point of view.
    Breath taking scenery, very well captured,

    Bonjour Christiane,
    this must have been a surprise for you! I wonder if it is really something Belgian style or rather it is just a name used by Polish sellers. I have never heard about these waffles being from Belgium but it could be just my ignorance...
    Nice capture with the lady demonstrating to us one product in her hand.
    People add so much life and feeling of action here.
    Lovely street scene,

    Hola Sergio,
    never enough of this beautiful tower! I take always hundreds of photos of structures like this.
    You present it from a less popular angle indeed.
    You had such a great uniformly blue sky, this is not a typical British weather, you were so lucky :)

    Hi John,
    beautiful spot, this architecture is so elegant and with so many decorative elements. Very impressive. The couple which you have included sits probably too far from each other to introduce a romantic mood but at least they work as tourists and observers adding great value to the composition.
    The light was magnificent indeed and the townhouses look fantastic in it.
    If 19.5 is the temperature than I can only tell you that I would dream about such high temperature for north east England. Sadly the summer this year was terrible as usual.
    Excellent work,

    Bonjour Nicolas,
    amazing effect. I didn't even know that rainbow can be hanging so low!
    Great scene with colorful and well lit houses and the mountains in the back.
    The rainbow is a great touch of course,
    Excellent work!!

    Hi Ike,
    I suppose I could install a sculpture like that instead of an alarm... :)
    I was at first a bit surprised to see that scene in Edinburgh but then I noticed the location and yes it fits more to a southern country than to Scotland :)

    Very funny idea, great reportage!

    Czesc Malgorzata,
    niestety wyglada na to ze nie ma bezpiecznych miejsc na podrozowanie. Chociaz w krajach Europy Srodkowo Wschodniej takie rzeczy sie nie zdarzaja, ciekawe dlaczego?

    Bardzo dobry wybor fotografii, dzieci golebie na pierwszym planie to stwarza poczucie pokoju.
    Czarno biala obrobka rowniez zdaje sie miec zalobny nastroj.
    Doskonaly sposob zeby upamietnic to tragiczne wydarzenie.
    Ja jak zwykle nie nadazam zeby reagowac szybko na biezace wydarzenie ale uwazam ze to wspanialy pomysl.

    Pozdrawiam serdecznie,

    Hi Danos,
    wow your trip was really extensive! Last year I managed to be in southern Croatia, Bosnia and Montenegro but sadly I didn't manage to go north. I definitely have to repeat visit to this region. Not only Plitvice and Lake Bled but also the capital cities of Croatia and Slovenia are on my list.

    You had quite a bad weather day but it didn't stop you from taking an interesting shot. The rainy mood is very well captured with people in coats and with umbrellas.
    The castle on top is nicely located and well framed with the townhouses on both sides of the street.

    Great reportage,

    Czesc Ryszard,
    pamietam jeszcze kiedy mieszkalem w Niemczech liczne zbiorki pieniedzy na odbudowe tego kosciola. Ciesze sie ze sie udalo i koniecznie musze sie tam kiedys wybrac. Mysle jednak ze raczej nie w tym roku.
    Wspaniala architektura, szkoda ze takie rzeczy bywaja zniszczone w czasie wojny ale oczywiscie troche niesmaczny wydaje mi sie fakt ze niemcy narzekaja ze ich to spotkalo...
    Wyglada na to ze bedziemy mieli okazje zobaczyc reportaz z tego miasta w twojej galerii, czekam niecierpliwie na dalsze zdjecia.
    Doskonalej jakosci praca,

    fantastyczna kompozycja!!
    Wzgorza na tle morza same w sobie sa juz przyjemnym widokiem, tutaj podoba mi sie ten bialy pas kamieni ktory wmacnia jeszcze interesujaca geometrie. Drzewa oczywiscie rowniez ladnie dekoruja widoczek.
    Postaram sie zapamietac to miejsce jesli bede sie wybieral w okolice...

    Hi Craig,
    wow, this is a spectacular point of view, we can see the interesting cliffs in the context and we can look so much further behind!
    I like very much the black color of the beach below! I suppose if the weather is good one could consider Iceland for beach holidays ;)
    The coastline makes such a wonderful curve in the foreground!
    Jaw dropping scenery!!!

    Hola Angel,
    congratulations on your 1000th photo, I am still a bit behind...
    It is always a pleasure to visit your gallery.
    This is a great choice to celebrate this round number.
    The colors of the sky are amazing and the final effect spectacular!
    The still water in the foreground is well used here to provide a reflection for the fabulous sky.
    Breath taking view!!!

    Hi Pavle,
    amazing sunset scene! I like very much the colors of the sky and as well how the warm sun rays reflect in the smooth fragments of the roof in the foreground.
    You have exposed it perfectly with the sun preserving its perfectly round shape and the roofs having enough details to make it interesting,
    Very well done,

    Hi Jean,
    yes this town is also on my list of places to visit in the next future.
    The time of the day was already without direct sunlight so the colors are less eye catching but you did manage to capture the unique atmosphere of this square with so many people as you say sitting around and enjoying the place.
    Beautiful spot, nice reportage,

    Ciao Silvio,
    very nice angle to photograph this charming fountain.
    I like how the street scene is sandwiched between two different fragments of the fountain.
    The water drops are also attractively frozen in the air.
    Behind a busy square full of tourists appears..
    Very well seen and captured,

    Hi Paul,
    I hope to be able to visit Belgium next year. Formally I have visited the country already but I have no photos from that visit so it doesn't really count. I suppose it would be good to synchronize my visit with the event which you present here. It looks so colorful and eye catching!
    I like as well the fact that except of the flowers the carpets contain as well vegetables :)
    It is really so pretty and such an interesting idea!!
    The carpets contrast with the elegant houses behind. It simply doesn't fit together and thus works so unexpectedly attractive!
    Excellent reportage,

    Hi Bev,
    this seems to be so much less popular destination than for example the beaches of North Yorkshire. It looks quite desolate. May be I should consider to go there for beach holidays :)
    Lovely composition with the boats adding so much color and interest here. The beaches seem to be sandy, clean and with no people in sight!
    Very picturesque view, great work!
