    Hello Lars,
    A Bright view from Brighton. The colours and contrasts are good and there is a lively atmosphere among the people strolling along the pier. The many posters and signs and what looks like official "graffiti" on the right side brighten the photo further. Was there such a good wind, or are the flags made to fly like this regardless of the weather?
    Kind regards,

    Hello Paul,
    Do people actually live here? Normal lives? Or is this mainly created to attract tourists? In any case it's a marvellously picturesque and pretty street and this is a fine angle looking down the hill.

    Hello Malgo,
    This bridge looks great from every angle. It has the advantage, compared to another one you showed us, that people are actually allowed to use it. The reflections are beautiful too.

    Hello Luciano,
    It's a very nice view of the canal, trees and small buildings on the sides, but I wouldn't have noticed the swans' nest unless you had told us. The workshops of course explain what is happening. They are nice photos but I hope the photographers will not make the poor swans so stressed that they abandon the nest.

    Hello Luis,
    This is a very good photo from what I agree is one of the most beautiful railway stations anywhere. I saw it a few years ago and was only disappointed to find a fast food restaurant that didn't quite suite the wonderful architecture.
    You used the vertical shapes very well and made the best of the shapes and details in the fine light.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Robert,
    It's a fine photo with great colours and light of this spectacular palace in a style I could not identify. Maybe not even the architect or the Baron knew what to call it, but there are a lot of delightful details.

    Hello György,
    A delightful nothing special with nice colours and clarity and things to watch. My only suggestion would be that you could have cropped the left part with the half window for a perfect symmetry. Is the girl watching the worker or her mobile phone? I suspect she didn't even notice him.
    Best wishes,

    Hello Carlo,
    These "statues" are amusing and colourful and entertaining to watch. I like such monuments much better than a statue of a King sitting on a horse, or any other kind of Important Man made in bronze.

    Hello Pierre,
    It's a very strange rock but you have captured it with fine clarity and colours and excellent sharpness. There is a fine play of light and shadows on the rough side and I like the balance if dark and light blue.

    Hello Rob,
    I saw this sign, or an identical one somewhere else, in a photo by Elaine, but it's just as amusing anywhere. It creates so many funny photo opportunities. Nobody could resist this lady's somewhat retro style of dress, and her selfie-taking. It's a delightful picture.

    Hello György,
    Perhaps it's not the most attractive places in the city, but I have a vague feeling you have shown it before from another and maybe nicer looking angle. The photo is a lot about the man on the bench, looking across the square and the large screen. There are several green details in the lower half of the view and a lot of brown towards the top.
    Best wishes,

    Hello Jorge,
    There is a place close to where I live where a church tower and a minaret can be captured almost side by side like here, but the shooting angle is more difficult. Here you had an open view at a comfortable level. You also had a very good light and managed to include some of the street life.

    Hello Chris,
    Padua is a relatively unknown city to me, but this photo is a nice introduction. The curving canal and street and all the statues look very elegant and there is a fine light on the buildings. The animal in the canal is an unusual view from an Italian city, or any city. It's occasionally found in parts of Sweden, where it is called nutria, or "sumpbäver", meaning "marsh beaver".

    Hello Piotr,
    It's a very nice view of the small beach and the colours are fantastic. Those responsible for TE were urged years ago to add the Comoros, South Sudan and Kosovo, but nothing is done to improve the site, only perhaps to save it from total collapse. You could try a message in the Forum Feedback/Support, but the chances that anything will be done are very small. One member probably left the site because he couldn't post his photos from the Comoros properly.

    Gert

    Hello Rob,
    This man certainly looks very similar to the guy on Youtube, but he had hired himself a more professional drummer on the sound file. You show us another two good photos in your series from New York. In my opinion these photos tell us as much about the city than any skyscrapers could do. At least they are a very good complement.

    Hello Claude,
    All "nothing special" photos deserve a smiley. This man looks so wonderfully relaxed as he is standing there with one hand in the pocket while painting the fence with these strangely uneven green and blue tones. I will hardly need to tell you I would also have liked to take this photo ;-). Actually, I almost did.

    It is hard to describe this as "beautiful", since it represents one of the darkest periods in human history, but it is a stylish and touching photo and the light is well treated.
