    Hello Silvio,
    Some of these buildings are not in a perfect condition, but what an interesting urban view this is. The dark façades have many interesting details and you captured the rough texture very well. I like how the buildings seem so tightly packed together in an impenetrable maze of walls.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Pavle,
    It's a well taken photo of the setting sun. The colours of the sky are fantastic and there is just enough light for us to see the buildings of the neighbourhood and the roof outside your window, where the burning sun is perfectly reflected. It looks like the end of a very hot day.

    Hello Chris,
    The colours of the sea are very appealing, and so are the colours on the beach. The dark red parasols contrast perfectly with the greenish tones of the water close to the beach. It's a nice view and not a bunker seen here, but I am sure there must have been some not far away. An "enemy invasion" could always be expected along the coast.
    Best regards,

    Hello Philippe,
    This is an excellent photo with a fine environment, interesting activities and fantastic light and colours. Although quite many people are trying to catch fish I get a sense of a very quiet and peaceful atmosphere where nobody wants to disturb the neighbors, or scare the fish.

    Hello Malgo,
    A nice snapshot from a busy street. Maybe he keeps the stick like this because he knows it will attract curious tourists, who then perhaps will buy something. Or perhaps he expects the police to tell him to go away, and this way he can leave quickly before they arrest him or demand a bribe. There are lots of nice details of daily life to watch apart from the salesman.

    Hello Stephen,
    It's an interesting photo of very different architectural styles, thanks to the huge mirror, and a fair number of people animating the view. Several trees, real and reflected, give an impression of a kind of oasis in the city.

    Hello Danos,
    A nice photo from one of the nicest smaller capitals I have seen in Europe. Fine buildings in a nice location below the hill with the castle. The many people animate the view and the nice colours and light also make this an appealing photo.

    Hello Ryszard,
    This is a most appealing postcard, not just because it is perfectly exposed and razor sharp. When I was in Dresden in 1970 this was just a heap of stones, so it's amazing to see the church rebuilt in this perfect way. Your POV gives us the best possible view of the church and the rebuilt houses behind it. The persons walking in all directions across the square make the view vivid and colourful.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Murat,
    The parallel walls and the narrow lawn give the view fine depth. The nicely shaped clouds are an eye-catching feature in the distance. The composition depends largely on the perfect exposure.

    Hello Luciano,
    You captured a beautiful moment in the short lives of these butterflies. It is perfectly sharp and the colours are amazingly well matching. The diagonal straw contributes to making this exceptionally eye-catching.

    Hello Luis,
    Wow, what an amazing view. You were lucky to have someone sitting on the rock, even though it looks totally crazy. But he adds an element of suspense and excitement which underscores the sense of height created buy the wide view of the rocks. You exposed perfectly with fine clarity of the ground as well as the early evening sky.

    Hello Jorge,
    The buildings are very nicely placed on the hillside with three small chapels at the top. I like how the white buildings are located in one cluster with a group of sand coloured houses with interesting roofs below. It's an attractive photo with fine light and colours.

    Hello Carlo,
    A quite attractive castle with a fine gate of wrought iron. The flags add colours but the most original part of the view are the hay bales forming the letters L.K. The light and colours also make the view very nice.

    Hello Craig,
    Good for you that the horse wanted company. He gave you a very nice photo opportunity, bringing charm and beauty - and life - to the view. The scenery is great too, but the horse is the best feature. And you didn't even need the drone for this one!
    The Icelandic horses are very popular in Sweden too, because they are sturdy and friendly and suitable for those who are not so very familiar with horses. But once they have left Iceland they are never allowed to come back.
    Have a nice weekend,

    Hello Christiane,
    There is a very nice balance between the lawn, path, water and pavilion. It is a beautiful view and a well composed photo where the small red pavilion is perfectly framed by the trees. The relatively dark clouds were no disadvantage at all. The light and colours are very pleasant.

    Hello Rob,
    This is great. Finally I get to see the piano player properly without any disturbing bridge or skyscapers. ;-). And what a fine piano. I didn't see its great decorations properly on the other photos. It's actually very interesting to see the girl playing in the WS, showing that this is not a piano for just one person. I find it fascinating that a brief TE meeting could come up with with such different photos. Or maybe you all decided together who would post which photo.

    Hello Jean Claude,
    Yes, these photos are common, but I like this anyhow. The graffiti is really strong and expressive and the persons on the narrow pavements make the view lively. I like the low perspective, the fine colours and the good exposure.

    Hello Piotr,
    It's an excellent view of Berat, although this doesn't seem like the central part of the city. The colours and light are wonderful and the sharpness is perfect. I am amazed to see the low level of water in the the river. If it looked like this in June, I wonder how low it is now, after a long dry summer.

    The houses are beautiful and the view across the river is very pleasant. You used the two nearest persons well. They fill the foreground, animate the view and make us feel we can admire the buildings with their eyes. The colours and hight are perfectly crisp and clear.
