    Hello John,
    You seem to enjoy a much better weather than Stockholm. The sky is lovely and a lot of people animate the view of the square lined with beautiful buildings. You placed the pump nicely towards the side, where it is balanced by the corner of the grey building. I like that all buildings are of different heights and have different kinds of roofs. That also makes the view lively and interesting.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Mehrdad,
    This is a very unusual waterfall, looking more like a huge and original monument. It is a pleasant place with beautiful colours provided by the flowers and a lively atmosphere created by the people. The photo is very sharp and well exposed.

    Hello Ryszard,
    This seems to me a terribly boring hobby, but they get fresh air and the surrounding scenery is very nice. From this point you also captured a lot of beautiful trees and their reflections in a very nice autumn light.

    Hello Rob,
    After seeing these photos my suspicions remain that the interior (at least parts of it) could cause seasickness. The angles between walls and ceilings are as irregular as could be expected. I understand the difficulties in taking "straight" photos. In the main picture I have to look at the building across the street for a confirmation that the photo is not tilted. The stairwell photo looks like the laws of gravity have been cancelled. Why doesn't the lady in red fall down? ;-) Only the Stegosaurus looks "normal".
    Great fun!
    Cheers,
    Gert

    Hello Takero,
    By making this B&W you make the market view look less flattering and actually more genuine. The woman's inquisitive and maybe suspicious look at you would have been less convincing in colours. I like this.

    Hello Gerrit,
    Another pretty view of Holysloot. The note makes me feel even stronger that you are living in a museum. ;-) The photo is well composed with the wooden planks and the bell in the foreground. But the ferry makes me curious. Maybe you will post a closer view of it.

    Hello Chris,
    In my memory central Timisoara was full of very impressive buildings, and here we see some of them. It's a straightforward composition but you handled the colours and light very well and the contrasts underscore the fine details of the façade of the university building.

    Hello Jean,
    I was here long ago, slightly later in the year, and the weather was not as nice as this. The light may have been slightly difficult but the nearest hill looks perfect and the reflections are magnificent. The boats complement the view well.

    Hej Lars,
    Här behövdes det inte ens en "lady in red" för att komplettera bilden. De här märkvärdiga bergen klarar sig bra utan någon hjälp. Det är en fantastisk vy, och ni hade tur som fick ha den nästan helt för er själva.
    Hälsningar,

    Hello Nicolas,
    Judging from your photos the Swiss Alps have the strangest clouds in the world. You arranged this photo neatly with the well placed tall tree showing autumn colours and the diagonals of the hillsides. A simple but very attractive composition, once again.

    Hello Ian,
    To the eyes it looks like it would be easy enough to pass through this arch, but I guess that treacherous streams can make an attempt hazardous. You were lucky to make it, and you also got yourself a nice photo of the bushes framed by the grey rocks.

    Hello Murat,
    Just like I prefer street photos to include some people, those you show today have the advantage of including a "human touch" (even if it's just a boat) between the focal area and your camera. Glaciers and mountains certainly have a beauty of their own, but sometimes photos get more interesting with a different kind of eye-catching element. That goes for all three of today's photos.

    Hello Luciano,
    These ruins are impressive, but maybe not quite as magnificent as those of the baths of Caracalla in Rome. But they certainly make a good photo in this fine light and with the turquoise sea in the background. Three columns rising high above the ruins, along with a few palms, are good focal-points. The sharpness and exposure are also impressive.

    Hello Piotr,
    A fantastic view of the valley very far below. It looks almost dangerously deep, but luckily you had a safe fence of straws to protect you from falling down. ;-) I love how the rays of light shine diagonally near the top.

    Hello Angel,
    This nice street is lined with beautiful buildings obviously featuring lots of fine details. But I think the shade is too dark, so some of these details are lost. I made a WS where we can see them better.

    Hello Dale,
    The ruined castle stimulates my imagination, and thanks to the information sign we see it twice. The sign also shows a lot more of the view outside the photo to the right. Instead you chose to show us the view of the sea and a few rocks. The photo has a nice shape and very pleasant colours and light.

    The tower has an original design and is quite attractive. The dark clouds and the weak light towards evening have created a slightly mysterious atmosphere that I like. You exposed the photo well.
