Hello Jean Claude,
It's a beautiful square looking quite hot. Fortunately several persons didn't mind the sun, which gave you a quite lively photo. The tall palms frame the view elegantly and you managed the bright light very well.

It's a good composition and the red shirt is definitely an advantage in this green environment. The photo is slightly grey and pale, so some minor processing would have made it a little bit clearer without disturbing the fine haze covering the hills,

They were clearly not doing maths, but this game probably also teaches them smart and logical thinking. They were perfectly dressed for a photo, especially with these contrasts of red and green, and acting totally spontaneously. It's an excellent daily life photo, colourful and energetic, and with a very nice light.

You have been absent a long time so welcome back. I didn't quite expect to see you around again. If this man was slightly disturbed he may not have understood what you were doing, or maybe didn't even notice you. That gave you time to take a good photo in an environment that reminds me of what I saw in Calcutta more than 40 years ago. The colours are fine and you handled the light perfectly.

The blue, white and black tones work well together. I am off to the Dead Sea tomorrow. (Jordanian side). I will wave to you in Israel! Nice abstract type of shot with just enough info available to work out the setting of a harbour with yachts. Tfs!

I have spent several days in Vilnius but don't remember this church. The red flowers and people provide scale with the large statue at right. Good sharpness and a fanatastic warm cold color contrast with the blue sky. Tfs!

The curving sides of the fountain add strong lead in lines towards the back. The red church looks great against the blue sky backdrop. I skipped Minsk even though it was only 90 km way from Estonia due to the steep 90 euro visa fee. Tfs!

A fascinating note and a delightful photograph to accompany it!
I remember that there was quite a vogue a while ago for presenting photographs of reflections "flipped" or rotated through 180° and Gert's brother, Gunnar, showed us quite a few of his two or three years ago.
The colours here are wonderfully rich and vibrant and the soft ripples on the water have given the image a wonderfully "Impressionist" look. Beautiful soft light, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness throughout.
