    Hello Nicolas,
    The swans are beautifully captured in flight above the river where small ducks are swimming. I like the light and colours and the mist covering the field.

    Hello Silvio,
    This is a perfectly framed view of the beautiful gallery with the elegantly painted ceiling. The light is cleverly handled and the diagonal lines of bright light on the floor are very eye-catching.

    Hello Rob,
    Once again you found a smart way to include yourself in a photo. I like the contrast of the dark sky and the yellow wall, the D shape of the window and the reflections seen in it. There are lots of things to watch and think about.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Ike,
    Dams are not always the most beautiful structures, but this bow-shaped wall is quite attractive. The gentle curve gives a harmonious balance to the composition and is beautifully surrounded by green, yellow and pink trees and bushes, some of them very nicely reflected in the dark water.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Philippe,
    The stained glass window is beautiful and you have combined the dark wall with the light view outside with a very good exposure. It's an attractive and very well balanced composition.

    Hello Krzysztof,
    The barn is maybe not in a perfect shape, but the colours and various materials are very attractive, partly thanks to the fine light. I like the inclusion of the broom and the shovel, and of course that cat is the finest participant of all.

    Hello Malgo,
    I don't know about other languages, but in Swedish "Helvetia" is very close to the word for Hell, which sounded strange to young stamp collectors once upon a time. This is a nice postcard, although the statue looks relatively modest and is almost "drowned " by the buildings behind her. But she is nicely seated and looks quite relaxed.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Stephen,
    The colourful and traditionally designed boats are great eye-catchers, and far behind them there is a nice view of the city climbing the hillside. The composition is well balanced between sky, land and sea.

    Hello Christiane,
    The small lighthouse is bright and attractive, but the large rocks are even more eye-catching. They are beautifully shaped and show many fine tones of grey and light brown. It's a very clear and crisp photo with a fine balance between the sky and the sea with two tones of blue.

    This is a wonderfully bright and attractive photo from Uppsala, where the cathedral is surrounded by very elegant "civilian" buildings. The colours and light are fantastic.

    A nice photo of the pigeons sitting on the air conditioner. They are well seen against the grey sky and the wall and roof create fine vertical and horizontal accents.

    Hello Ryszard,
    I have only seen very limited parts of Croatia, but it is a country of many beautiful natural sights. This gives us a good indication of that. The red and orange roofs make fine contrasts to the surrounding trees and the mainly grey hills.

    Hello Luciano,
    There can't be many large cities left that are as safe at night as how you describe Havana, but I remember that pleasant atmosphere from several decades ago, even in parts of Rome! Maybe that is why this place reminds you of Rome ;-). The fine light in the foreground contrasts beautifully with the dark sky. The warm light shining inside the tower are three eye-catching details.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Jorge,
    Another magnificent view from this strange and inspiring scenery. In this photo particularly the grey sky makes a perfect complement to the green hills and plains and the darker grey rocks. The limited range of colours is very appealing.

    The dark silhouettes and the evening colours of the sky create a very attractive and eye-catching photo. The light from the old style lamp supplements the light of sunset perfectly.

    Hello Mesut,
    You timed this photo perfectly a fraction of a second before take-off. The sardine is clearly seen in the bird's beak. The photo is nice also for the interesting view in the background. It is a photo to be proud of.

    Hello Roland,
    I have a feeling this is not the most common angle for a photo from this monument. In any case the orange umbrella makes this photo quite original as it provides a bright spot among the grey stones. It also matches the autumn coloured trees perfectly. You observed and managed this well.

    Hello Recep,
    This is an elegant composition where the diagonal lines of the road create good depth and the trees give a fine vertical accent. I like the subdued light and the small glimpses of brown and green which break the grey dominance.
