Hi Maciej, this is the most surreal shot I've seen in ages. Everyone is either taking photos, or having their photo taken - it is really most bizarre. The path is great too, leading you past all these different characters. And the pose of the guy on the right - very strange. TFS, Roberto

quite weird what they're doing in couples, one kneeling the other one standing... Love the green of the grass though. Back to framing your pics now?

Japanese tourists by the look of it, arranging reality to sit their return, and making sure they get exactly the right kind of souvernir pictures. A fine capture, well composed across hat expanse of green...

Just great how you collected this bunch of photographers and people posing. They are really scattered all over the place and in different poses. Very funny catch!!
And I like the framing here. Creates a quiet that makes you focus on the picture.

You have a very Welsh light, Maciej. Is there rain in the air? It's an odd, fascinating image; one is perplexed as to what is going on. The frame is filled with interesting activity. Regards Kevin

There is a very naturalistic surrealism to this image Maciej A near perect seperation on the figures, the repeat of all the kneeling figures against a standing pne and a great spread across the picture - very nicely framed with a good classical focus on the actions of the forward couple.

Funny image! Very good timing and nice colours.

you have indeed it seems! this shot is spectacular since all seem to act as "photographers" on the job! I like the fact that none of them is overlapping over one another (with one litle exception) and this harsh green color!
What have you been up to recently? any tripl planned yet?

Some odd stuff here. I think there is a lot of humor in this shot, right from the guy at the bottom right, who appears to be proposing to the other guy. I also like how people are generally teamed up in pairs and the green is appealing too, although perhaps slightly oversaturated. Maybe the sharpness could be better and there does seem to be a lot of vignetting, but a good photo overall.

20 points! Brilliant. I see people have missed the point on one of the best posts I have seen on here recently. Obviously Parr's style here (if you oversaturate it a bit). The people, all but one is doing something here and makes for a very funny scene. I bet if I look at who has critiqued it's the usual suspects with a good eye for photography. Yep, there they are. Excellent Maciej, pure magic.

Very good POV
