    Hello Lars,
    This is a beautiful view, with nice depth, and a great, high POV. I like the green and blue hues of the City Hall roof. When I open the photo in large format I can see an interesting sculpture in the foreground. I wonder what it is... The lakes are very pretty, too.

    Hello Terez,
    Thanks for showing us something truly unique. When I read the title I was first expecting an actual subway entrance, as in a subway train, but a Subway sandwich shop goes better with this giant praying mantis. :-) He's cute and very well-made. Unexpected art like this can definitely brighten our day.

    Hello Satya,
    Cows roaming freely are so representative of India. I like how these two are lovingly nuzzling one another. They seem to be having a touching, private moment in the most public of places. All of the activity in the background is also interesting to look at, but I am really drawn in by the cows. :-)

    Hello Takero,
    This is a beautiful combination of silhouettes and orange color. The bright sun on the left balances out the dark pagoda on the right very nicely. It's a wonderful view from Bagan.

    Hello Paul,
    With two people in the foreground, and lots of colorful boats, this is a lovely scene. It definitely looks like a more peaceful beach. The church in the distance makes a nice background detail, too.

    Ciao Luciano,
    It's good to try something different. :-) This is the surreal view of the mosque, and it has a dream-like quality to it. I do like the traditional views of the mosque in the WS photos, too, but this main one is a Middle Eastern fantasy. :-)

    Hello Rob,
    Jay-Z and Beyoncé look very comfortable sitting over Times Square. :-) I like how you combined this billboard with the modern skyscraper. I especially like the lower part, where we can see the office ceilings and lights. There are bright spots on the facade, but they are unavoidable, and don't really take away from the overall view.

    Hello Gert,
    It's always fascinating to see photos from Africa. I like how you used the arch to frame the mosque in the background. The colors throughout the entire scene are very similar, and in my opinion, that's an attractive quality. It's nice that just a few people were walking around to add life to the scene. You certainly didn't have to fight any crowds to get on the ferry either. :-)

    The river is so calm that you managed to capture some lovely reflections. The lighting is also very nice. This just looks like such a quiet spot to relax for a while.

    What a lovely shot, with the children in traditional clothes, and all of the Easter decorations. There are lots of bright colors, and the girls are very cute. They look happy to be dressed up, too.

    Hello Claude,
    Sometimes an excellent coincidence appears that we just need to photograph. The sad painting and the sad man are so close to one another, but still also seem so far apart. The man is lost in his own world. I hope his fortune will improve one day, until then, life imitates art...

    Hello Lars,
    I really like this Brick Gothic architecture. The central tower has interesting windows, and the bricks don't look hundreds of years old at all. :-) I can imagine horses trotting underneath this gate.

    Hello Gyorgy,
    I was looking through your gallery, and I found that this photo had no critiques. I will fix that. ;-) The burst of sunlight drew me in right away, and you captured it streaming over the hills and trees perfectly. Then my eyes move down to the small path, and the small structure at the end of it. It's a lovely scene.

    Hello John,
    This scene has lot of interesting details. Of course it's nice to see the storks. We never see this bird here in NYC. The symmetry is attractive, with the tractor in the middle, and covered bales of hay always remind me of giant marshmallows. :-)

    Hello Costantino,
    The blues in this photo are definitely beautiful. I also like those thin rods in the foreground; they create a nice effect in front of the water. The sky and sea would blend together, but that thin line of mountains in the distance keeps them separate. It's a very pretty view.

    Hello Gert,
    This simple shot led to some interesting history. I do like the silhouette of the cat, and the colorful, older buildings behind it. Imagining this area teeming with cats and rats is not so pleasant, though. I like cats, but there must have been bloody rat murder going on everywhere, or maybe some of the cats even got harmed by the rats! The photo is lovely, though. :-)

    I was looking through your gallery, and I found this amusing scene. That man has no idea what is about to happen to him, and the woman is sharing her secret with you. :-) The bright colors add interest, too. It's a fun scene from the mall.

    Hello Marie-Louise,
    Sometimes we can't avoid the white sky, and in this instance it doesn't take away from the photo in my opinion. The traditional clothes are the interesting part of this view. It's unique to see men wearing bells on their knees, too. :-)

    Hello Rob,
    Your trio of photos shows a hard day in the life of a Times Square Mickey Mouse. I am a bit more amused by the Hawaiian Minion, though. :-) Times Square is a bizarre place, and I'm glad the characters have their own zones now. You managed to get three free shots of Mickey Mouse, so good job! :-)

    Ciao Luciano,
    Without the women standing there, we might thunk it's the Grand Canyon in Arizona. :-) I like how the canyon fills the entire frame. The red head scarf adds a bit of color, and I also like how one sneaker is peeking out from beneath the woman's clothes.
