    Hello Pavle,
    A fine photo with interesting architectural details, beautiful colours and light and a perfect green background. The sharpness is admirable and you captured the texture of the nearest stone wall very nicely.

    Hello Krzysztof,
    A very nice view with beautiful contrasts of light and dark blue. There is also a nice balance between the clouds and the white waves in the lower corner.

    Hello Christiane,
    I am sure this is a much cleaner and more quiet place than in the "good old days", but they are still interesting and attractive buildings. This photo is taken from a good angle with a nice view of the buildings. The light, colours and sharpness are again absolutely perfect.

    Hello Serge,
    It's a lovely view of early winter with the trees perfectly covered with snow. The original art works are shown in a perfect environment. This is a fantastic art gallery.

    A splendid view of the crater lake and the rugged rocks surrounding it. The pale sky makes a strong contrast to the dark green tones of the lake and rocks.

    Hello Sergio,
    An interesting photo showing more than just the beautiful traditional buildings. The red roofs of the street stalls are very eye-catching and match the trees perfectly. Among the stalls are many fine details.

    Hello Nicolas,
    A very smart and attractive composition. Most of the seagulls seem to admire the view, while the young couple as usual are busy with their mobile phones. I love the diagonal line of birds and people and the green and grey tones of the stones.

    Hello John,
    This is a very good portrait, possibly the best this man has ever had. Light and sharpness are perfect, he looks very relaxed and you had a perfect eye-contact. Possibly it is looking more like a studio setting than is usually seen on TE.

    Hello Bev,
    Another fine photo from this beautifully bright day. The colours and light are wonderful and the wooden fence goes very nicely on a diagonal along the simple road. I think this fence has featured in your photos before, and for a good reason. It generously lends itself to good compositions.

    Hello Rob,
    At first she looked like she was praying in front of a colorful altar, but I see she is taking photos. Art is probably more important and useful than religion. There is no lack of bright colours here and the attractive photo is well organized according to the rule of thirds.

    Hello Malgo,
    So this is what you decided to show today. I don't remember seeing this before. It looks well timed, but they were probably not in a hurry to stop kissing, so maybe you even had time to set up the tripod to get such a well composed photo with a fine exposure and nice sharpness.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
    PS I also looked at the workshops, of course. I always do.

    Hello Stephen,
    I haven't been to Munich since the early 80's but I remember it as a quite nice city. This photo seems to confirm my memories. Its an impressive building, possibly slightly overloaded with ornamental details, but the crowds in the square are pleasant and colourful, the weather is nice and the photo is well composed.

    Hello Paul,
    This certainly looks like a nice place, and maybe your description of the city makes it look even nicer. It's not possible to draw any conclusions regarding the friendliness or atmosphere from these photos, but the beautiful design and colours of the buildings and the general neatness of the square indicates a place where people care for their environment, and possibly for each other and strangers. It looks hot too. As always all photos are well taken, from angles that seem carefully considered.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Kasia,
    Strangely the name Thamel doesn't mean anything to me. Is it just my ignorance or had that area not yet developed into the tourist centre 44 years ago? I seem to remember everything as being much closer to Durbar Square. You captured a very nice firework, more interesting than those we see on many photos from festivals. The lack of safety awareness in the "third world" is often astonishing. So many lives lost, so many people injured for no reason at all. Nice workshops too, including the workshop seen in this official photo.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Luis,
    It looks like a very pleasant quiet street with neat small houses that are simple but well maintained. The steep rocks start immediately beyond the street and offer fine colours that complement those of the buildings very attractively.. You took the photo from a fine point where we see the street bending softly and the mountains create jagged diagonals that balance the curve of the street.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Ourania,
    A distinguished old lady in red like this doesn't need any male companion to make a perfect portrait. She does well on her own, standing in the road between the thorny bushes in the bright light. It's a simple but well considered composition and it could hardly be more eye-catching.

    The hazy light in the valley creates a superb backdrop to this view of the small town on the hillside. The church tower and the dome are the dominant features of the town of white cubic houses. It is a pleasant composition with well handled light.
