    Hello Will,
    This is a fine photo with nice girls who are nicely placed and wearing nice colours. You were lucky to have such a great sky and perfect light. Along with the beer you must have had a great time.

    Hej Boa,
    Det kan väl aldrig vara så att ju mer man dricker desto fler reflexer ser man? Snygg bild, definitivt ovanlig för att vara på TE, men fina siluetter mot en fin blå/beige bakgrund. Är det din fru, eller vågade du ta en såpass närgången bild på en främmande person? :-)
    Hälsningar,

    Hello Dwaipayan,
    This may be a rather cold and inhospitable area, but the scenery certainly is breathtaking. The pick-up gives us an idea of transports in this part of the country. The colours and contrasts are superb.

    Hello Paul,
    One thing I know for sure: this photo is much better than what the proud father could manage. You captured the connection between the monkey and the excited boy very well in a humorous way. You have also filled the frame very nicely. Maybe these monkeys have learned that this is the only place they will get fed, and behave accordingly. Otherwise monkeys who demand snacks from visitors could get a bit nasty. They're not as nice if you have many of them close by.

    Hello Ourania,
    There is a bit of quiet action and suspense in this photo, so I rather eagerly hurried to see the workshop so I could relax again :-). Finding a place for your boat at Leros could be as difficult as parking your car in Athens. The man's trousers don't exactly match the colour of the schooner, but they still go very well together and give this photo a generous amount of brightness.

    Hello Gosia,
    It's a well known monument, but the inclusion of the two persons and their bikes add a human component that gives the composition a personal style. The excellent colours and clarity, and the well chosen POV, also seem to be parts of your personal style.

    This is a brilliant photo. It has almost everything. Fine colours and a wonderful warm light, human activities, even a dog, fine boats of various sizes and a beautiful background with the city and the mountain. Very well done.

    Hello Wolfgang,
    Artists and others, who try to promote their individual style instead of following the fashions, tend to become part of another fashion where all the individual styles resemble each other. That's all right with me. Maybe this woman is an artist, or just very interested in art. She is well placed between the drawings and something has clearly caught her great interest although we can't see what she is watching. In any case this connection between the art and the onlookers is the right way to take photographs at an exhibtion.

    Hej Trevor,
    Vilken vacker vy! Jag tycker mycket om linjen som går från vänster till höger i eleganta kurvor från havet upp till kyrktornet. Den våta leran har ett fint vågmönster som ger liv åt den tomma förgrunden. Bilden har mycket fint ljus och vackra färger.
    Vänliga hälsningar,

    Hello Ryszard,
    The two persons seen at the bottom give us a good idea of the impressive dimensions of this combined wall and roof. The curves and diagonals create a fine pattern. I found this large station, consisting of three buildings, rather confusing. It's not recommended to arrive here at the last moment before the train's departure.
    Kind regards,

    Hello André,
    This is a lovely portrait with very fine light and colours. I like the girl's self-assured look s she is posing for you, and I love her braided hair and her necklace. I also like the mud wall and thatched roof seen in the background.

    Hello John,
    Better grumpy than crazy :-). I guess if you have tourists coming all the time to take pictures (which may happen in a place like this), you may not be overly enthusiastic. But he allowed you to take this photo and a nice photo it is. The fish stalls are among the most interesting parts of markets in far away places where you can find strange creatures you didn't know existed. This is a very nice composition on a diagonal. The fishmonger is well placed and the light is very well handled.
    Kind regards,

    A simple but very elegant and attractive composition. The pebbles have wonderful shapes and colours and the feather adds a nice and different element. You placed it well on a diagonal. You made a good observation.

    Hello Kasia,
    So you took photos of this beauty for half an hour! I am not surprised by the time you spent (you have told me about your habits and patience before), but I am amazed that it wasn't at all bothered by your presence. After all, you must have been reasonably close. There is a wonderful sharpness, the colours are superb and it is perfectly placed against the blue background.

    Hlelo Craig,
    You really managed to pack a lot of people into this picture :-). They may be far away and look small but they still contribute a lot to the atmosphere. After all, this place was built for people. This perspective captures the impressive size and design of the stadium very well. It's still going strong after so many years.
    Have a nice week ahead.

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    This is a bit like your "shoot-from-the-hip" photos, the main difference being that children can act spontaneously even when they know about the camera. Those who only care for "perfect" photos will probably never experience this kind of joy among children, or the personal joy of catching something as lively and completely natural as this. I hope, for the sake of justice, that her brother was also given a photo of his own.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Rosemary,
    I think I have told you before of the utter contempt I feel for those who have these magnificent animals, and many others, killed for ridiculous "medicines" or handles of daggers etc. My anger makes it difficult to comment this from a strictly photographic point of view, but it is certainly a fine close-up. The conversion to B&W makes it look like a shot from 100 years ago when elephants roamed freely (although always threatened by stupid trophy-hunters).
    Kind regards,
    Gert
