    Hello Angel,
    Maybe not so perfect weather, but a perfectly nice view of the medieval tower and the fine buildings surrounding it. The colours are excellent in spite of the rather pale light.

    Hello Jean Claude,
    This is a nice portrait of the attractive young lady. The light and sharpness are both very good and the colours, including those of the background, are all matching each other perfectly.

    Hello Daniel,
    Indeed very lovely golden tones that enrich the fine details of the façades. Another nice composition in your personal style.

    Hello Wolfgang,
    A very pretty view of the old gate and the other old buildings. This has kept its medieval character very well. Very nice light and colours too.

    Hello Malgo,
    A nice view with fine colours of early autumn. The central area is very nicely framed by the two couples coming from opposite directions. But what a strange wall and strange little towers. Maybe this is "the real thing", but my imagination makes me think of a late 19th century fantasy of mock medieval architecture, maybe with a touch of Orientalism ;-).
    Kind regards,

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    We may regard this as a timeless view, but neither of us will be around to see if life goes on like this in 50 years. We can only hope that people here will be able to keep that peace of mind that slowly riding a water buffalo hopefully brings. Provided they can also fill their stomachs. It is a lovely and enchanting view, but just for once I am not entirely satisfied with the colours. I think there is a red tone that makes this just slightly less perfect than your average pictures. Maybe it is a matter of too much saturation.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hej Trevor,
    Med tanke på hur du har tagit den här bilden så tycker jag att skärpan är fantastiskt bra. Det kan inte ha varit så lätt att fånga ett sådant ögonblick så bra. Spänningen och glädjen lyser ur personernas ögon, ansikten och kroppsspråk. Här finns också många andra fina detaljer att titta på, inte minst molnen och himlen som ger en känsla av att detta är från högt uppe på ett berg. En riktigt spännande och rolig bild.
    Hälsningar,
    Gert

    Hello Lars,
    This is a great view and a very nicely composed photo. In spite of the skyline and the impressive bridge it is, to my mind, the red boat that really makes the photo. And of course the waves indicating that it is moving quite fast.

    Hello Craig,
    The "Us" picture is certainly the nicest, but unfortunately against the rules for regular uploads. Judging from the other WS you didn't find a lodging tucked away in a quiet corner of town, but I guess there are no such quiet corners in Oia. In this picture there are lots of nice rounded shapes at various angles. The red/pink/orange building breaks the blue and white dominance in a very nice way.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Ourania,
    This composition gets a fine rhythm from the many diagonals, some of which seem to converge somewhere around the corner. The light gives a beautiful glow to the pink wall and the white details of the windows and the balcony. The light gives me the impression of a rather hot day, even in late September.
    Kind regards,

    The typical belt easily identifies this man as a Kurd. It's a nice portrait and he looks rather amused at the idea of being on TE.

    Hello Murat,
    You did very well to give this an old time appearance. The modern buildings on top of the hill are quite discreet and don't spoil the impression of a photo from 100 years ago.

    This is a very impressive watchtower of a remarkable design. Looking at it I get an impression that the clouds are actually smoke coming out of a huge chimney :-). I love the superb light and colours.

    Hello Costantino,
    Although there is a certain lack of sharpness this is a lovely composition of the elderly lady among the nice colours of her house. It's a good street-photo, where the white lines of the steep street givs the composition fine diagonals.

    Hello Silvio,
    This is a very nice photo of the fountain looking like a small church without an entrance. The children in their identical clothes and their teacher in the red shirt add brightness and life and definitely make the entire view more interesting, no matter how beautiful the fountain may be. I love the impressive clarity of the photo.

    Hello Rosemary,
    This sculpture/house obviously got you into a very artistic mood, inspiring you to this seriously tilted photo :-). I love the bold lines, colours and contrasts. This was a lot brighter inside than I could have expected from the earlier photo. And seeing the workshop view of the surroundings it occurs to me that this must be more or less what the world looks like for an Afghan woman wearing a burqa. What a mesh!

    Hello Serghei,
    Birds seem to be a very likely explanation for these interesting tracks, but they must have been remarkably artistic birds. They left a very attractive composition. My regards to you for spotting this simple but beautiful view. The two trunks of the tree add a fine element to the composition. The light falling on the snow is quite wonderful too, and so are the long diagonal shadows.
    A great photo from southern Turkey :-)
    Kind regards,
    Gert
