    Hello Denis,
    The orange colored house makes an almost shockingly bright foreground, and it contrasts perfectly with the green hillside. There is also a fine balance between the two rows of houses at the lower level and those on the hill. The light falls perfectly on the orange building and its attractive black details.
    Kind regards,

    Hello John,
    This is another beautiful building very nicely situated by the water where it is perfectly reflected. It is a pity that your note was not accepted due to the technical problems, but it may still be possible to add it, if you use the edit mode and avoid all apostrophes. They seem to be the major problem.

    Hello Ana,
    I needed your explanation to see clearly what kind of fire this is. But what I did see immediately were the fine pattern made by the fire and the pieces of wood. There is a beautiful play of lighter and darker areas, like in an abstract painting.

    Hello Bev,
    The railings are very elegant and you have captured the nice curve just as elegantly with the pebbly beach and the sea as a fine backdrop. The shadows contribute a lot to the elegance of the composition. It is a very good photo but I find it slightly dark. Do you agree?

    Hello Sasha,
    It is no longer a nice building, but the details make this an interesting photo with some strange beauty. I like the well captured rough textures of the various materials and the details of the window and the roof. The colours are matching each other very nicely too.

    Hello Farhat,
    I am sure this street is not really quiet, even late in the evening, but in this photo it has a rather quiet atmosphere. Life seems to be going on at a fairly leisurely pace, people doing their late night shopping or just talking to the shop-keepers. For an observer there will always be lots of thing to watch. It is an interesting view filled with fine details and a very well exposed photo in the darkness.

    Hello Angel,
    I like this composition from an unexpected angle, looking into the beach instead of towards the sea. There is nice group portrait going on and you have used the rocks well to frame the view. I guess the light was not so easy and you had to do some post-processing to get the colours and contrasts right, which is seen from that halos lining the group and the rocks. But that does not really disturb. This is basically a very nice photo.
    Kind regards,

    Hello St├ęphane,
    These logs could have been arranged here as an official work of public art and they would have been recognized as a genial installation, interpreted by skilled critiques. Now they are just wave-breakers but still as beautiful, standing alone on a line on the sea-bed at low tide. I like how you placed them on a diagonal, and I like the contrasts of the few colours.

    This is a lovely village with beautifully painted houses crammed tightly together. You found a perfect POV where the trees frame the view very nicely. The sea provides a fine background.

    Hello Jean,
    The wet sand creates wonderful reflections, just as good as at high tide, and these colorful sails provided a perfect opportunity for a photo. It is a well times photo of the nicely distributed yachts captured on a lovely day with fine light.

    Hello Silvio,
    On the thumbnail this looks like a painting by the British 19th century painter William Turner, famous for his pre-impressionistic handling of light and storms. It is still a beautiful picture at full size with a lovely mist and fine colours. The view behind the mist is great too.

    Hello Ourania,
    Plastic buckets are not usually very beautiful, but this one is very well placed and really contributes nicely to the balance of the composition. This is the kind of photo where I can almost hear the voices of the fishermen. The orange trousers also contribute to the relaxed liveliness of this photo. The light was still very good but maybe that did not last long.

    Hello Aleksander,
    The evening colours should be half the pleasure for the kayakers, just as great as paddling through the calm water. It is also a pleasure to watch them, the purple tones of sunset and the fine reflections, It is a very well exposed photo.

    Hello Dwaipayan,
    This is a great view with the pleasant green foreground contrasting with the rough mountains behind. It is a well composed photo with fine colours. It is a pity that the current technical problems deleted your note, but you could probably restore it by using the edit mode and avoiding apostrophes. The TE server does not seem to like apostrophes for some reason.

    Hello Ryszard,
    Whoever stacked these boxes on top of each other was a bit careless. They do not seem to fit so perfectly. Just joking. It is an interesting building and another example of fine modern architecture in Poland, or in Wroclaw especially, which you have shown us many times before.

    This is a fine photo that does not need any explanation, although I think you could have entered a note afterwards through the edit mode and deleting all accents and apostrophes. It is a nice building and the palm makes a fine contribution to the composition. The man with the bike is another good element of the photo. Great colours and clarity as always.
