    Hello Abmdsudi,
    Lump in throat or not, this was a photo that deserved to be taken. TE needs good and truthful documentary photos like this. Besides, the colours and light must have been hard to resist.

    Hello Nicole,
    The well placed elegant lamppost makes a fine foreground and connects with the line of lamps along the quay, giving the composition superb depth.The crowd of people animate the ground view and the fine clouds animate the sky.

    Hello Maciej,
    I saw this stadium last year when Malgo (emka) guided me through the Praga area, but it looks much better in this photo than how I experienced it. This is a superb composition with first class colours and sharpness. I wish you success in the race tomorrow.

    Hello Pavle,
    A very fine bridge, well placed on a diagonal, and a very nice boat. I love the balance of the brown bridge and brown river against the green boat and green grass. An uncomplicated but sophisticated composition.

    Fantastic trees on neat straight lines, but also a quite lovely carpet of mainly green and yellow tones on the ground. Another photo with superb colours.

    Hello Noel,
    A fine composition from a good angle and with superb colours. The flowers gave you a great foreground and the ruins are very nicely laid out. Especially the tall steeple is still magnificent and must have been an impressive building long ago. I also like the inclusion of the narrow curving road to the left.

    Hello Carlo,
    A lovely tower and a very original one with trees growing on the roof. The tree growing to the right, behind the nearest building, makes a fine parallel to the tower. The colours and light are splendid and there are very fine contrasts of light and shady parts.

    Hello Dwaypaian,
    This fertile valley doesn't look immediately Himalayan, but the prayer flags indicate the location anyway. The colorful lines form a fine foreground to the green backdrop and the two silhouettes give life and a perspective to the view. As usual a very well composed photo.

    Hello John,
    A light like this, appearing at such a solemn moment, must have been a sign from above, don't you think so? Surely it was no co-incidence. Also, it was no co-incidence that you managed a photo with such excellent clarity and sharpness, giving full credit to all the fine details and the fantastic colorful reflections on the floor.

    Hello Craig,
    Yes, meeting a "European" at a truck stop at dawn doesn't happen every day to this man, that's for sure. I remember this from my early journeys long ago, people just stopping and staring at the pale stranger. It doesn't happen so often these days in the bigger cities, but obviously still in the countryside. To me this picture brings a certain level of nostalgia, not just the staring man but also the huts across the road, the dirty sacks, the smoke and the men hanging around. So many time I have seen this kind of place.
    But you got the geography rather mixed up ;-). One hour out of Delhi, on the way east, is neither Rajasthan nor Delhi. You had most likely reached Uttar Pradesh.
    Have a nice weekend,

    Hello Mesut,
    More beautiful storks, this time showing the season's newborn triplets. And this nest is placed in an even more impossible place. It looks ready to fall down any day now. You captured this with splendid colours and sharpness.

    Hello Gerrit,
    A well balanced composition with good depth provided by the rail tracks. It is nice for a change to see people on the tracks instead of the expected train. It's also nice that one of them is wearing a red shirt.

    Hello Maciej,
    The window is quite nice, but the best part of this composition is no doubt everything surrounding the window. Beautiful yellow details and blue tiles. As usual it is also a very cleverly cropped and balanced photo.

    Hello Bev,
    What a terrific storm, and what a perfect place to see it. The combination of magnificent castle and a very spectacular, and really elegant, storm gave you a memorable composition. Also, you still enjoyed a very good light. I think that changed totally just a short moment later.
    Have a nice weekend.

    I like the strong, vivd colours of this photo and the deep lines of yellow sand, grass and dirt road stretching into the composition along the sea. The nicely shaped clouds underscore the atmosphere of a hot day in late summer.

    Hello Frank,
    A nice spotted view fine great colours and fine details. It's a simple composition in a way, but it's the simplicity that I like. I feel a bit sorry for the poor pot to the right, left outside the community of pots on the bench. Very nice light and two fine diagonal shadows.

    Hello Ourania,
    This beach looks too pebbly to be attractive to me as a holiday maker, but for those reaching this shore after a dangerous journey this must be like a glimpse of Paradise. While not really paradisiacal this is a fine photo with a nice tricolor of dark green water, white froth and brown pebbles.

    Hello Malgo,
    Don't worry, in five years or more I will be enjoying your photos of people in Italy that you will recover when you have long ago run out of churches at the blue hour ;-).
    This is not a beautiful place, but it's very typical of India and the bright colours and the dilapidated state of the building create an irresistible charm.
    In Sweden we say "Baka brd t bagarens barn", meaning "Baking bread for the baker's kids".
    Actually, a Swedish company a few years ago got a contract to sell sand to Saudi Arabia!. Yes, it's true. I think it was a special kind of extremely fine sand that would be used for some industrial purpose.
    Have a nice journey.
