    Hello Will,
    This is indeed a very pretty view which you have framed very nicely with the trees. It's a technically brilliant photo with crisp and clear colours.

    Hello Nicolas,
    A smart and refined composition with the very attractive yellow diagonal crossing the diagonal of the fence and the vertical line of the lamp-post. The tree spreads its branches into a superb pattern seen against the light blue background. Simple but superb,

    Hello Bev,
    Winter is definitely better on photos than "live". At least that's my opinion. Seen like this it looks great. Just enough snow to create a certain brightness and a fine contrast to the blue sky. The warm tones of the light have saturated the colours in a natural way. The composition has a fine balance between the trees, the house and the field.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Mesut,
    Trekearth is very much a matter of making friends and creating networks. It's not easy to receive much attention with your first photo. Surely this picture will get many more points today than 9 years ago. And it deserves attention. It's a plain but pleasant rural scenery with very nice colours made mild and discreet by the thin layer of fresh snow.
    I wish you every success for the next 9 years ;-).
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Ann,
    I believe you when you say it was cold. It looks like the air is filled with ice crystals from the steam. The hazy effect is lovely and the thick snow covering the trees is fascinating. Nature gave itself a very artistic expression, which you captured with a very fine light.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Ryszard,
    This is an absolutely beautiful scenery. The thin layers of snow on the ground and the trees has created very mild and pleasant colours and the light is softened by the slight haze. The big trees are well placed towards the side, between the river and the narrow road. The composition is nicely balanced and has a very good depth.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Luciano,
    Sandy beaches as empty as this are hard to find. It's a dream I always carry with me but I always wake up to reality when I get there :-). It is a simple photo but indeed very nice to watch.

    Hello Paul,
    I think I am among those many who have taken photos from this spot, although the picture I uploaded here was very different. This photo shows a large part of the area, the grandeur as well as the less fashionable parts. It's most of all a photo of breathtaking colours, where the spectacular sunset is nicely matched by many of the houses and their roofs.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Neyvan,
    What a lovely scenery, really spectacular. I like the hazy light on the stint peaks and the warm tones of sunshine of the green foreground. The scattered wooden buildings are very pretty. It's a very nicely composed photo, once again from a superb POV.

    Hello Craig,
    Usually a lady in red makes a perfect focal point for a photo. Here you used not just a lady in red but also a tram in red. Isn't that overdoing it a bit? ;-)
    Still, regardless of colors it's most of all the boys that make this picture. They add the right pinch of human touch.
    Cheers,

    Hello Gosia,
    This is a very very nice photo. You have combined the tower and the fountain very cleverly to make them look equally high. In a way it is a fairly simple composition, but it is very smart and well managed with few details and fine contrasts and colours.

    Hello Serghei,
    I already know about Brasov, so I don't need to learn anything more, I can just enjoy your glimpses of daily life in the city. While not as funny as your last photo this has a very nice atmosphere of people enjoying themselves by drinking hot wine on a cold day. The street stalls are picturesque and in the background we see a bit of the fine houses on the square. I spent my first night in Brasov in a very nice hotel just off this square. Then I had to move out because it was already full.
    Enjoy your weekend,
    Gert

    Hello Eleu,
    It's a fantastic bird and you managed to set it against a partly matching orange background. The bird turns its head very nicely to show us its fine profile. It's a perfectly well exposed photo wit fine sharpness.

    Hello Anna,
    Graffiti has a tendency to pop up suddenly and unexpectedly. I often like graffiti in dull places like this, where it makes the view much brighter, but not on fine residential buildings. The yellow buses add more colour and city atmosphere.

    There is no snow but there seems to be much more water than usual. The river looks very high and the water seems to be running very fast with a strong current. This is a fine photo from an unusually green winter.
