    Hello Silvio,
    It's a very picturesque lane among beautiful buildings. Apart from the several people seen here, there are signs of human activities everywhere, so this is in no way a dead end street. It's very lively and attractive.

    Hello Jean,
    I suppose the agreement from 1961 still stands, meaning that this is still the private/public residence of the Carews. What a place to live in in these days. I suppose the NT is responsible for the lawn and most other things that need to be taken care of. It's a fine angle for the photo, showing a lot more green than grey.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Sergio,
    It is hard to tell what it looks like behind these modern buildings and inside the apartments, but it certainly looks very nice from a distance so if this renewal helps to lower the crime rate everyone should be happy. It is a very colourful view and the surroundings look nice. You show this urban change well in a sharp and bright and nicely balanced photo.

    Hello,
    The hat could hurt the woman if they tried to get any closer (which I think they did).
    It's a nice photo and a bit amusing.

    A nice view from below of the rock full of birds. There is a fine contrast between the dark rock and the bright sky with crowds of birds on the ground and some flying.

    Hello Christiane,
    It's interesting to see the empty countryside starting immediately outside the town. The red and orange roofs create fine contrasts to the green and yellow fields. You had a very nice light in the morning.

    The attractive and well known skyline is nicely complemented with the boats and their masts rising as some other skyscrapers. The photo is well treated with an expressive sky and fine reflections.

    Hello Philippe,
    I am sure the church and its solid tower were the main objects for this photo, but however attractive they are I must admit my attention is just as much caught by the very carefully cut bushes along the road. Together these features make for a nice view with well managed light and fine colours.
    Kind regards,

    I won't say a word about their dress, I promise.
    This is all about the light, the well captured skin tones and the fine contrasts of light and shadows in the nearest guy's face.

    Hello bev,
    Normally I would probably be expected to prefer the WS (people!), but although that is also a good photo I think you made the right choice to show this one. The small ripples in the water and the pastel colours of the fields and other vegetation are just beautiful. I love the contrast of the dark sky and the yellow field. In case you got wet later at least you got yourself two fine photos before that.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Krzysztof,
    What a beautiful old well and how nice to see it preserved and looking so fine. I get a feeling this is a fine market square generally, from what I see of the buildings, but the well must be the pride of this place. It's a nicely taken photo with excellent light and sharpness.

    Hello Lars,
    This is a stunningly beautiful photo with all the greenery in the foreground and the ancient wall and buildings behind. The impressive tower rises high above the surroundings. You were also lucky to have a very nice sky with pretty little clouds in one part and crisscrossing jet streams in another. In every way this is a very attractive photo.

    Hello Pavle,
    It's a beautiful summer scenery and what I thought was a vineyard, until I read the note. In any case the long lines of bushes create fine depth and there is a lovely contrast of green and light brown. The colours are well saturated.

    Hello Craig,
    Ito looks like the space station that fell on Earth. It's an amazing building and maybe I haven't seen this angle before. although I have seen it from various directions and in a lot of different compositions. Again you used the light very well.

    Hello Jorge,
    I guess your adventure ended well, otherwise you wouldn't have posted this photo ;-).
    It's a nice picture you got unexpectedly. The mosque has some fine details and the minaret fits the vertical accent of the palms very well, so do the green roofs.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Murat,
    Doe this mean that no trains at all are running from Haydarpaşa any more? I do hope the beautiful building will find a great new purpose. It would be a good place for various cultural activities. Or maybe a luxury hotel? It's a nice photo with good depth created by the trains and the roofs, and just like you have would have been happy to discover that couple afterwards. They really provide a good human focal point.

    Hello John,
    A fine photo kept in your archive for two years. The monument stands at the centre of a beautiful square lined with elegant buildings. The people sitting on the steps create a pleasant atmosphere and add colours. It was a relatively cloudy day but that hasn't harmed the photo or the fine light.

    Hello Jean Claude,
    This is a great perspective of the narrow but very long bridge. The grey line along the green mountainside is graphical stunning and the scenery is no less exciting. The people spread out all along the view make the grey line lively and interesting and make me wonder if I could walk here and look down without my legs turning into jelly.

    Gert
