    Hello Angel,
    Very elegant houses in a beautiful setting. I think the view from the top floors will be superb, so most probably those flats are very expensive. You took a fine photo with wonderful colours and excellent clarity.

    Hello Philippe,
    I don't know what this bird would be called in my language, but it is very beautiful in any case. You captured it in a nice environment and it is perfectly reflected in the eater. A well timed photo with excellent sharpness.

    Hello Ike,
    This is quite an impressive and beautiful building, regardless of its use as a hospital or an office. There are lots of potentially disturbing elements in this view but you cleverly managed to avoid them all. The lampposts frame the view of the building nicely, the railing next to you is seen on a safe distance below the hospital and even the wires don't cross the view of the building.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Krzysztof,
    A very good photo of the church, built in the same year as the house where I am living. The colours are wonderful and the sharpness is perfect. Apart from the church itself, and the nicely laid bricks, I like the large painting on the wall and the nicely painted sculptures by the gate.

    You placed yourself carefully to fit the facade of the basilica exactly inside the nearest vault. It's a wonderful church and a very neat and symmetrical composition with lovely light and colours.

    Hello Kari,
    It's a beautiful ship, carefully made to look like the old ones. They made one in Göteborg too some years ago and sailed it across the world.. This one looks fantastic in this light and with those colours behind it.

    Hello Ourania,
    Some members add such thick frames to their photos that the pictures get too small, but this a different matte. But at first sight of the thumbnail I wondered if you too had fallen into that trap. It's a very elegant reflection although the most elegant part of this composition is the generous inclusion of the wall; part of the photo and not a frame. But a kind of frame anyway.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Will,
    Maybe the girls are following some doctors' advice that a glass of wine a day (or was it two?) is good for you. That could be the reason they look so healthy. Whatever their relationship there's nothing wrong with a bit of intimacy and it certainly doesn't hurt the photo. I always like pictures that seem to tell a story.
    Best wishes,

    Hello Mariusz,
    This is a lot more beautiful than the streets by the bus station where I arrived last year from the Ukrainian border. Later I could see from the train, as we left for Rzeszów, that other parts of the city looked better. You took a very nice photo of the church tower neatly set between the two white towers. I like the fine contrasts of the clothes hanging down the backs of the statues.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Craig,
    Great shot, even closer to an abstract composition than the last one. The view is nicely covered in a mysterious haze created by the well timed appearance of the fog. I would have hesitated to identify this as a building but I take your word for it.

    Hello Malgo,
    Fascinating colours, although less bright than in your last photo. I like the green field and the tones of the mountainside and even the dull sky. I confess to missing a herd of sheep, but I know it's hard to get everything you want.

    Hello Rob,
    This is a fine combination of an old style, traditional statue, attractive modern architecture and some nicely twisted reflections. The only detail that disturbs me slightly is the blurred grey thing on the left side. But what to do? Cropping it would have disturbed the balance of the photo and clone-stamping it properly would take some effort. What a dilemma.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Bev,
    It's a strange and fascinating building, looking a bit like some kind of rather old-fashioned machinery. I can't imagine what they would use it for. :-) It's fun to discover such architectural gems and it's fun to watch this well composed and perfectly exposed photo.

    Hello Christiane,
    It's quite daring to post a photo of the Eiffel Tower. It's not easy to find a new angle but you have done well. I like this bold composition of curved lines and diagonals. Changing it to B&W was a good idea too. It's a graphically excellent photo.

    Hello Ryszard,
    A fascinating and very attractive composition from above. From this angle patterns are created that can't be observed at ground level. I like the calm rhythm of the tiles and trees and the parasols in the corner. The boy on the one wheel bike is a fine detail (I suppose it's a statue).
