    Hello Costantino,
    Your position above the crowd allows us a good view of the people taking part in the carnival. They are very colourful and seem to have fun, and to make a lot of noise. It's an entertaining photo of a nicely chaotic crowd.

    Hello György,
    This one is quite special. I don't see people wearing that kind of clothes very often where I live. Neither do you, I believe. You placed the shepherd well between the two other men, and included a glimpse of the meat loving crowd in the background (I don't suppose there is any vegetarian or low fat alternative here). I am surprised you leave Iringó in the hands of an outlaw cowboy who almost looks like he could be a member of the Islamic state with those black clothes.
    Have a nice Sunday,

    Hello Ike,
    I think most people have some attraction to horses, animals that have served mankind well for thousands of years. Maybe they can be said to be man's third best friend (after mobile phones and dogs). This is a charming "portrait" with lovely light and colours (and the photographer's shadow). The red wooden fence is a small but nice attraction.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Ricardo,
    The plain white buildings have a discreet charm and there are several cases of "interacting" colors that give the photo a nice balance. Red flowers - red ornaments on the wall of the house near the end of the street; green leaves - green doors on the nearest building; blue sky - blue frames on most doors and windows; brown street and wall to the right – brown roofs. The end of the street, with a view towards the mountains, is well placed on a third from the right. To conclude, this is a well taken photo with excellent clarity and colors.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Serghei,
    Neither do I understand what is written here, but I am quite sure it doesn't contain any criticism of the government or the high level corruption, torture, executions, prison camps, lack of public debate etc. Whatever is written it is colourful and eye-catching and more colours are added by the girl's shoes and pink rucksack and the woman's dress.

    Hello Jean Claude,
    The statues don't tell me much, but maybe I would like them more if I saw them more closely and from all sides. But they are very good parts of this composition, along with the diagonals and triangles of the roof and windows and the many persons visiting the museum. The light is smooth and pleasant, which gives greater emphasis to the contrasts created by the architecture and the art.
    Kind regards,

    It's an amusing and stunning photo of the snow and ice shaped by the strong winds. It looks like a lollipop or spun sugar.

    Hello Christiane,
    An attractive view of boats lined up on a diagonal and with the masts creating a strong vertical accent. The men sitting on the jetty add life to the composition and make this more than just a postcard. The colours are wonderful, especially the balance of dark and lighter blue.

    Hello Ana,
    This is a fine capture of childish joy, which along with the warm tones of sunset has created a wonderful atmosphere. Maybe the children's life is tough but at this moment they have no thoughts of the realities of life.

    Hello Malgo,
    Of course this is one of the most touristy places in Paris, but it's lively and colourful and there are certainly lots of things to watch. The little girl to the left wearing blue and pink is the star of the show according to me.

    I like the rough textures of the wall, the faded paint and the reflection in the window. The sign of the theatre is a very beautiful detail. I am surprised to find a H.C. Andersen theatre in Lublin.

    Hello Jean,
    It's an excellent photo where the dark screen of trees forms a fine diagonal going parallel to the mountain ridge. It's a stunningly beautiful scenery where the lonely skier is the cream on the cake of the composition.

    A wonderful photo of the horses walking across the snow-covered field among the trees. The haze and mild colours have given the photo a fantastic softness that is mainly contrasted by the sharp, dark features of the horses.

    Hello Ryszard,
    The strong contrasts and intense colours have created a very eye-catching photo. There's no doubt which kind of climate I prefer if I have a choice between sunny Portugal and foggy Poland, but the grey and gloomy views from Wroclaw in February are honestly more interesting ;-).

    Hello Piotr,
    You encountered a terrible traffic situation but it provided you with a good photo. This seemingly endless line of trucks creates a superb feeling of depth far into the picture. The scenery is exciting to watch and in this case the knowledge of approaching an international boundary brings another kind of excitement.

    Hello Jorge,
    A place for heated debates these days when Greek's fate will once more be decided. As most parliaments it is an impressive building. The large square is nicely filled with people and pigeons, and in this warm light there is a pleasant atmosphere of late summer.

    Although the women are dressed in black they still brighten the view of the grey wall. They provide strong contrasts to the wall along with the vegetables they are selling. Their baskets are nice eye-catchers too.
