    Hello Christiane,
    A very nice composition with beautiful colours and a fine atmosphere. I like the contrasts between the slightly grassy bank, the pink saline and the lightly cloudy sky. I also like the diagonal details of the very eye-catching boat.

    Hello Costantino,
    The cat placed itself perfectly between the pillar and the wall, watching you while you were watching the sunset. It's a well composed photo with lovely colours of the sky and its reflections in the water.

    Hello Ana,
    A wonderful scenery and a wonderful sky. The yellow flowers are well placed in the foreground and the trees form a fine green screen in fromt of the hills. The narrow dirt road keeps fg and bg together very nicely.

    Hello Mesut,
    A wonderful view of the pillars still standing and the fragments lying here and there among the grass. I like the view of the trees growing inside the temples. I do hope the so called Islamic State will never arrive here to destroy everything.

    Hello Malgo,
    Nice young Polish artists in fine Italian surroundings. It's interesting to see them at their work in the alley, and I also like the well worn brick wall behind them. A very nice photo, maybe the yellow tone is a bit strong.

    Hello Ghislaine,
    A very nice photo of a slightly less known part of Pisa. It is a bit of a postcard but it is very well managed with beautiful colours of the houses and very nice reflections. The inclusion of a narrow slice of the nearest side of the embankment gives a good balance to the composition.

    Hello Leslie,
    This really looks like maybe 1935 instead of 2015. By pure coincidence you met this veteran car just by the veteran pavilion and for obvious reasons you converted the photo to veteran B&W. There is a car in the distance that might have revealed the true date of this photo, otherwise I can't see anything that looks even remotely modern. A very interesting photo, very well managed.

    Hello Gerrit,
    This must be a fun road for a dedicated biker. Not much traffic to worry about and views that are definitely off the main tourist tracks. Seeing the road disappear downhill behind the bend I can only wonder just how steep the hill will be. A very interesting photo with great colours.

    Hello Dwaipayan,
    Some stretches of roads I have travelled in Ladakh were the most terrifying I have seen, and they were anyway main roads, but this looks safe, at least for the time being. Who knows what will happen after it gets among those mountains. It's a fine view with great colours, and the clouds are nicely gathered inside the triangle created by the diagonal hillsides.

    Hello Brenda,
    It's an interesting photo, and maybe the story behind it is even more fascinating. I was wondering about the smaller building to the left (I didn't first notice the David's star) until i read your note. The tall buildings are of the iconic kind that is known all over the world from so many movies. I remember my own excitement when I first saw such ladders on my one and only visit to NYC. The yellow cab is just as iconic, but now they are found almost everywhere. It was a bright and lovely day, ideal for a long walk with a camera.

    Hej Boa,
    Jag håller med dig om propagandaaffischerna. Ibland kan de vara övermäktigt kitschiga och/eller naiva, men de är nästan alltid slagkraftiga och dekorativa, annars skulle de ju inte fungera. Den här har ju lite ton av lyckliga kollektivjordbruksarbetare som håller på att överträffa planmålet, fast sådana mål finns nog inte i Mongoliet numera. Hur det än är med innehållet så är det en väldigt snygg bild, både med den gröna maskinen mot den beiga bakgrunden och kvinnans rosa kläder, liksom kommunikationen mellan personerna. Marken är väldigt fint indelad i tre fält med milda färger som glider över snyggt i varandra.
    Jättebra. Den här har du bara gömt undan i åtta månader ;-).
    Hälsningar,
    Gert

    Hello Silvio,
    What a magnificent castle, and such a nice bell-tower to the right. Your composition has a very strong and distinct foreground in the dark green trees, contrasting beautifully with the fields and houses in the hazy sunlight in the distance. The castle gets its full attention in the well lit central area. Very well done.
    Best regards,

    Hello Denis,
    A red detail always makes a difference to a photo, but maybe this sail does more difference than usual. It is very beautiful by itself, but in these surroundings of rather dark blue and green tones and a fading light is is almost shockingly bright. A marvellous eye-catcher. The white birds are almsot as attractive. It's very good photo with a great atmosphere.

    Hello Gildas,
    This is an interesting and very different photo. It makes me think of a painting from the 17th century. It's unappetizing and totally fascinating at the same time and a highly original composition.

    Hello Daniel,
    I spent a day in Viseu long ago, and although I don't remember much (including this church), I recall it as a nice place. This is a very nice photo with very well used light and excellently capture texture of the stones and bricks. The bell-towers look very heavy and impressive.

    The trees nicely frame the view across the lawn and further, and the yellow flowers and red roof are fine eye-catchers. It's a simple but very nice composition with superb colours.

    Hello Malgo,
    It's a nice composition, and I clearly prefer this one to the workshop. The two nearest visitors bring life to the mass of stones (with or without striped shirt), and their raised eyes make us too watch the reliefs more closely. This may surprise you, but it would actually have been even better if the group in the background to the right had had time to get out of the frame. But of course it is impossible to keep full control of tourist crowds.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
