    Hello Danos,
    This is a lovely view of the town and its marina. The density of the town on the hillside makes it look very attractive. I imagine many nice, narrow streets waiting to be explored. The superb clarity and colours also make this photo worth a good long look.

    Hello Silvio,
    The news today was very sad and upsetting. Human lives matter most, but it is always also a tragedy when unique architecture is lost for ever. This photo will now be a memory of this beautiful church. You deserve a full green smiley for the high quality of the photo.

    Hello Ourania,
    It's interesting, but not surprising, that you still have photos left from that window in the hospital last year. The dark silhouette of the man and his long shadow are similar to those you showed before, so the special characteristics of this photo are the jagged shadow to the right and the white lines to the left. All these details make the photo graphically and artistically very attractive.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Dagmar,
    Welcome to TE. You start with a fine photo from a good elevated angle. The high rocks frame the view of the beach very nicely and there are lots of people who animate the view. The colours of the sand and the waterer beautiful.

    Hello Nicolas,
    A beautiful scenery of rugged mountainsides of grey and green. The cattle provide a nice view of life and also give us some sense of the dimensions. The photo is crystal clear and the colours are beautiful.

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    I like the blurred hands of the man to the right, proving his skill at turning the skewers quickly to avoid any meat being too burned. You balanced the photo well with one man on each side, a display of meat at the bottom and a lot of smoke in the middle. I am sure this photo suits my taste in more than one way. ;-)

    Hello Bülent,
    Watching this photo at its largest size I can see the white marble tower quite well. But in any case this is an interesting photo accompanied by a good note that reminds us of the astonishing development of aviation. I wonder if even the Wright brothers had the remotest idea what their experiments would lead to.

    Hello Ryszard,
    AS very nicely balanced composition of an interesting castle. I am puzzled by the black and blue pattern of the cupola, but it looks nice. It's a beautifully sharp photo with lovely colours.

    Hello Murat,
    I really like fish markets because there are so interesting to watch and because of the reminder of the sea that you mention. Sometimes the light is not so good but you made excellent use of the lighting in this place. Everything looks very appetizing and is nicely displayed and you captured the view from a good angle with some people included.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Jorge,
    I think such taxes for entering other states, or shipping goods between the states, are to be abolished because they slow down the economic development. Disregarding bureaucracy this is a fine photo which looks like India could have looked like many decades ago, except maybe for the car to the left. It is a timeless image, an impression which is underscored by the conversion to B&W.

    Hello Carlo,
    The artificial waterfall is located in a beautiful scenery where the grey rocks rising from the water provided you with a dynamic composition. There is a fine variety between rocks, water, trees and hills, all of which are bound together by the even line of water rushing down.

    Hello Silvio,
    You found a perfect perspective from above. I love the view of the long staircase where people looking as small as ants are accompanied by their long shadows. The photo is naturally almost monochrome in a remarkable way. Only a few spots of green, brown and yellow break the total dominance of grey stones. It's an excellent composition with great sharpness and clarity.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Angel,
    It's a beautiful house, well maintained and looking very cosy with the abundance of flowers on the balconies. The view of the building is perfectly framed by the forested hillside and the hedge. The colours are well saturated and the light is well managed.

    Hello Kari,
    This is a fine photo but the title is even more remarkable. Most geographical names in this part of Sweden are Sami, but since there are at least three kinds of Sami in northern Sweden I am sure the free dictionary may be confused. It's a terrific scenery anyway, looking wet and rather cold despite mid-July. It's very empty and very exotic.

    Hello Will,
    A typical "nothing special" photo that seems to tell a story. The man clearly has something on his mind but it's impossible to tell whether he doesn't like the taste of his ice cream or if he wants another one. Two well spotted persons in a crowd, quite enjoyable, not least the woman's purple hair, matching her cardigan perfectly.
    Best wishes,
    Gert

    Hello Ike,
    It's not at all necessary to always "understand" a work of art. If you like what you see, that's good enough. I don't know if this is an abstract or the artist saw something special, but who cares? The shapes and colours are attractive and the mysterious black and white details force is to think twice at what we are seeing.

    Hello Nicolas,
    The branch hanging down is a good element by itself, but above all it casts a very nice reflection which makes the lower part of the photo strangely alive and vibrant. The diagonal line of small wooden poles is another fine part of this pleasant composition, just as the jetty to the right.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Lars,
    I guess it's the many signs of European influence that makes the old part of Québec look so nice. In spite of the grandeur of the Château it's the inclusion of the yellow zebra crossing and the persons on or near it that gives this composition its special character. Human presence in a street scene always cheers me up.

    Hello Malgo,
    A very nice view of a lot of roofs of various sizes and also the rural surroundings. There is a fine contrast between dark red and green. The workshops are also nice, but I don't understand why they didn't have the good sense to cut the poor man down after he hanged himself in the tower. ;-)
