    Hello Daniel,
    This is a fantastic building, very impressive, and in the semi-darkness the lights from inside give a great vigour to the architecture and its reflections.

    Hello Eleu,
    Nature's work of art. Delicate is a fine understatement. Touch it and it breaks. It's lovely to look and and admire, and the setting is very nice, even though I can imagine this kind would not naturally be found in downtown Las Vegas.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Alexander,
    This is a beautiful ceiling and you have taken a perfectly symmetric photo with very well managed light. Looking straight up like this, we see a work of art, not just a ceiling with a chandelier hanging from it. It's very cleverly done.

    Hej Peter,
    Jag hann inte se den förra versionen av den här bilden, men personligen är jag inte så förtjust i en del sorters ramar, sådana som på den förrförra bilden. Men att radera bilden för en sådan relativt diskret rams skull verkar konstigt och överdrivet. Hur som helst så är detta en mycket vacker bild med ett stämningsfullt nattljus och vackra dimbankar över vattnet. Det är nästan otroligt att detta är en analog, scannad bild. Den är perfekt gjord,
    Vänliga hälsningar,

    Hello Silvio,
    A lovely monument and a beautiful light shining from the vault. The man sitting on the steps makes the view come alive. The photo is very well exposed and has a perfect sharpness.

    Hello Satya,
    These photos from the beach are really fascinating. I ask myself if this was an extraordinarily lucky day, or if these men bring home the same kind of catch every time they return from the sea. I would have loved to stroll along this beach to look for good photos, but maybe my (greying) blonde appearance would have made it difficult. I could never blend into the crowd here.

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    Shwedagon is one of the most fascinating places I have ever seen, but I was too shy to intrude on people this way :-). Actually, I think a photo like this is perfectly all right, even though it gets close and personal. The woman is doing nothing to embarrass her, but she teaches us something about her culture. Besides, it's such an excellent photo with good light and good timing that it would have been a loss to us all if you hadn't shown it.
    Kind rgards,

    Hello Paul,
    What a stunning view this is, and a technically excellent photo to show it. But thanks for the explanations. my imagination would not have sufficed to recognize the beer galss or the jug covered with foam. The very ordinary boat brings us back to the ground after looking at the spectacular highrise buildings.

    Hello Miguel,
    A nice scenery with a dense troipcal vegetation. I could imagine that mosquitos could cause a problem in this area. The colours are very good and the pink flowers adorn the foreground.

    Hello Ourania,
    This house posed a real challenge to you. On the other hand, once you found the best light and the right angle for squeezing everything in you accomplished a very attractive photo. I get a feeling you were interested in geometry in school, because there are lots of fine shapes among these lines and colours and the play of light and shadows. The bright light shining on the façade is however the best feature.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Lars,
    This is a nice picture from my city. The colours and light are very good and the composition is well balanced. Of course a good and expensive camera usually produces better photos than a cheap and simple one, but the main resaon for a good photo usually depends on the photographer. If you cannot see what will be a fine photo there's no need to spend a lot of money on the best equipment.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Gosia,
    This is a fine picture and no doubt I would have liked to take the same photo if I had been there :-). It's an interesting mixture of various graffiti styles - political, artistic and just ugly. The man is literally turning his back to it all. The inclusion of him is the extra ingredient that the composition needed to be really tasty.

    Hello Gerrit,
    In India I have seen advertisements for a "family scooter", but what is this? A clan bike? It's a funny and well timed picture but terrifying at the same time. Smiling faces now, so much misery in case of an accident. In Vietnam at least it's compulsory to wear a helmet.

    Hello Ike,
    I think this airport has been considerably spruced up since my last visit more than 20 years ago. As a building it looks nice, and your cellphone has handled the light very well. From a personal point of view I have to say this is one of the least pleasant airports I have been to. I understand fully well the reasons for the security concerns, but departing from here is not a nice experience. Or departing from anywhere else to Israel.

    A very nice view, great colors, perfect sharpness. What else can I say? Maybe slightly too many empty terraces in the corner, but they were hard to avoid. Now let's have a look at the elderly lady :-).

    This is a fine composition. The beautiful villa is very nicely situated by the lake on the edge of the thick forest beneath the mountains covered by the mist. It looks lonely and quiet and you have captured this well with excellent colours and clarity.

    Hello Swapan,
    I had never heard of this temple complex. On the other hand the Indian cultural heritage is so immense that probably nobody knows about everything. The wide curve of small temples and the parallell line of yellow flowers are very beautiful and impressive and the other line of temples across the lawn are equally interesting, It must be a great experience to visit this complex. You have taken a fine photo with good colours and excellent clarity.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
