    Hello Costantino,
    There are terrific colours in this evening view. The red boat matches the tones of the clouds and their reflections perfectly. I also like that you cropped the photo so tightly, making us concentrate mainly on the magnificent colours.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Serghei,
    These rocks are spectacularly shaped, not quite like anything else i have seen. Nature has also provided you with a fine POV from the same altitude which also provided a superb view of the surroundings.
    Thank you for wasting a second smiley on that picture from Krakow.
    Kind regards,

    Hej Trevor,
    Trots att en del av förgrunden ser ut lite som en soptipp ;-) så är detta en fin komposition. De två vackert formade upplagda båtarna får mig nästan att glömma skräpet, och de ger en bra balans åt båtarna och den röda stugan på andra sidan viken. Färgerna är fina och ljuset var bra.
    Hälsningar,

    Hello Klaudio,
    You have captured a fine, moody atmosphere in a painting-like photo where the grazing cows certainly play an important role. Obviously your chosen title and your thoughts about the values of words have created an interest. What does the Swedish word "dimma" sound like to you? Meteorologically fog at sea is referred to as "tjocka", meaning approximately "thickness". It's a word I never liked.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Wolfgang,
    This photo is very typical of city life today almost anywhere in the world. It's amusing in a way, but rather more shocking or just puzzling. I am afraid I will never be able to understand what makes it so important and necessary to fiddle about with the phones all the time, whether having dinner with friends, exercising, going to the toilet or walking down the street.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Ourania,
    This is a bit different, but it almost goes into your collection of reflections. At least this is getting pretty close to that kind of abstract composition. You have been playing around a bit with shapes, colours, light and the movement of the water. It's certainly a simple and unassuming composition but it has the kind of refined beauty that only nature can offer.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Malgo,
    These must be the most comfortable "benches" I have seen in any museum. I am impressed. The paintings are truly impressive too, and you have captured them the way they should be captured for a site like this: showing also the interest and excitement of the spectators. And when I see these photos I can only feel pity for the fools crowding in the Louvre to "see" the Mona Lisa (nobody sees anything). Here they can watch just as good paintings in peace and quiet.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    The castle is certainly a fine building but it faces tough competition from the clouds. They are truly magnificent and the good light helped you take a terrific photo.

    Hello Nicolas,
    This is an original composition and an attractive photo with good, mild colours. I like the priest's puzzled posture and the heaps of fruits lying on the road. I also like the curve of the road and how you have placed the priest near the upper corner. I think you must have reacted very quickly to this golden opportunity.

    Hello Maria,
    This is in every way a very good photo. The books make an interesting theme and are nice to watch, the man is a perfect leading actor and his relaxed posture makes him more interesting, the light is good and the diagonal composition is very attractive. This may be indoors but the photo has all the qualities of an excellent street-shot. Very well done,

    Hello Ourania,
    For some strange reason I almost missed this one :-). This is a very harmonic composition. The boats are well balanced in the view, surrounding the diagonal jetty, and the moon shines very romantically above the gently curved hill, casting lovely reflections across the remarkably quiet sea. The village is very nicely placed between the two hills, also climbing both hillsides. In this photo I can really feel the warmth of the day remaining into the darkening evening. Hopefully the music from ths nearby restaurants is not loud enough to spoil the great atmosphere.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Mesut,
    I forgot to comment on this photo the other day. It's a very original composition, but it is colourful, creates a fine pattern and tells us something about Gaziantep. These shoes look comfortable but are probably too soft for long walks.

    Hello Mesut,
    Mardin is one place in Turkey I would like to revisit. I was there briefly 43 years ago and found it very dusty and dirty and my hotel was terrible. It is no doubt one of the most scenic cities in the country, and this photo gives us an idea of the architectural treasures found in this ancient place. There are some fantastic details seen here.

    Hello Silvio,
    A chapel with a view! I can't imagine any more beautifully situated chapel, and you have placed it perfectly in your composition. I love the grass partially covering the rocks in the foreground and the magnificent view of the snow-covered mountains. Absolutely beautiful.

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    I think every photographer who ever visited Phnom Penh loves the palace walls. They provide a perfect background for colourful photos. It's mainly a matter of waiting patiently for the right moment and using the right light. I know from experience that this is not as easy as it sounds, but you were lucky - or very patient. There is a fine balance of colours between the monks' robes, the bowl, their skin and the wall.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Malgo,
    I was here already in 1969! I don't remember which paintings I saw here, just that I was very impressed by the collection, as well as the magnificent building. What I do remember is how I once put my finger on a frame to keep my balance when watching a painting very closely. In a matter of seconds an angry voice from a loudspeaker told me to immediately step away from the painting :-)
    This photo shows very well the beauty of the building. The low POV is well chosen to show how impressive it is. Of course i appreciate that you waited patiently to include a few persons ;-).
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Kamila,
    It's nice that you still have photos from your Chinese journey. This is another fine composition with the diagonal bridge leading up to the temple, where the corners are adorned with the red lanterns. The steady stream of people walking across the bridge bring life to the photo. As always the colours are strong and vivid.
