    Hello Pierre,
    The large painting is well captured with a good exposure under difficult conditions. I like the inclusion at the bottom of the door to the next room. It helps us understand the location of the painting and gives us some idea of its size.

    Hello Takero,
    The buildings are all beautiful and carefully restored to their original glory. The warm lights have created an attractive small town atmosphere in the early evening, not quite yet the blue hour. The long exposure time has made the people look like ghosts of the past, which makes the photo even more interesting.

    Hello Bev,
    "Nothing special" but a nice atmosphere among the people walking along the waterfront. A lady in pink and a lady in purple are good eye-catchers, competing for attention with the characteristic bridge. The WS doesn't have this nice ambience, but the Armadillo Building is perfectly reflected in the glass façade of the other large building.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Chris,
    Goats are nice animals and, I believe, quite smart. They are clearly interested in you. Most of them are watching the photographer. Even more interesting is the building with its many small domes. I think they are meant to keep the air cool inside. Light and colours are very nice and again it's a very sharp photo.

    Hello Silvio,
    It's a very nice photo with the beautiful fountain at its centre. I like the wide view with the inclusion of the buildings on each side, but even more I like the three persons who greatly animate the scene. They all bring colours and life and contribute to a nice atmosphere. As an additional bonus the photo is perfectly exposed and sharp.

    Hello Ike,
    These tall buildings are very elegant and they all have some individual characteristics that make the view interesting. I am surprised to note that this photo is already ten years old, so considering the rapid change of the Tel Aviv skyline I imagine this view is already quite different. I do hope that all these nice trees are not gone. The photo has a fine light and very appealing colours.

    Hello Pavle,
    Seeing this young tree is almost like watching a baby or a kitten. For as long as TrekEarth survives you can come back here to show us how the tree grows. It's a nice photo and the WS gives us a wider view. Colours and light are beautiful.

    Hello Malgo,
    This scenery is very impressive, almost overwhelming, and the difficult weather conditions even in April are evident from the workshops. Both additional photos are good complements. The main photo is well composed with its horizontal sections. All photos have a nice clarity.

    Hello Jorge,
    This is an attractive upward view of the frescos on the ceiling and arches and inside the central dome. Although we don't see them closely it's easy to imagine the impression they make on a visitor. The overall effect is overwhelming and it's a well exposed photo. The large chandelier is a strong eye-catcher but doesn't steal attention from the paintings.
    Best regards,

    Hello Krzysztof,
    Today I didn't oversleep. ;-)
    This is a simple but pleasant photo. Your bicycle fills the foreground well and balances the composition, which is dominated by the blossoming bushes and the large tree. The road creates nice depth, which is enhanced by the bicycle. This is such a nice view that I understand you had to stop here in the middle of nowhere to take a photo. It's good to have a travel companion who never complains of long, boring rides or bad weather.
    Best regards,
    Gert

    Hello Philippe,
    This photo is very nicely composed and has a simple beauty that is most attractive. The magnificent tree is well placed and I love the contrast between its green foliage and the yellow/orange field with green traces. The colours are well saturated and the photo has an excellent clarity.

    Hello Ian,
    Maybe not a very scenic photo, but I don't see that as the main issue for TE. It is interesting and teaches us something about the world, and according to what I read the other day parts of Australia are already facing early heatwaves that are likely to lead to new fires. Australia seems to be taking a heavy toll from global heating.
    Besides being "not very scenic" this forest looks almost impenetrable and not a perfect area for trekking.

    Hello Paul,
    As usual I have to say that all photos are well taken and could all have been main uploads. You create hard choices for yourself. The red boats are good focal-points in all of them, while people on the bridge and distant smoke are other good eye-catchers in the WS.
    I wonder if this bridge, or a predecessor, existed in 1973. I don't remember exactly how close to the river I got, but I don't have any memory of activities by the water. Maybe it was regarded as risky, being within the shooting range of the Pathet Lao.

    Hello Christine,
    It's a nice photo even though he's not holding a fish here. It's okay that he didn't play his guitar since you couldn't have loaded a sound file anyway. He should have added a few string if he wanted to learn how to play it.

    Hej Lars,
    Jag minns att jag klättrade upp i ett torn på den här ön, men var det detta? Det kommer jag inte ihåg. Det är i alla fall en vacker kyrka, och bilden är fylld av fina detaljer i förgrunden. Inte minst den röda vagnen med glass skapar en trevlig vardaglig stämning. Den förstorade versionen av bilden avslöjar som vanligt en otroligt fin skärpa.
    Bästa hälsningar,

    Hello Janusz,
    The rock has an amusing shape and it seems it deserves its name. It's well placed in the foreground but the photo is nevertheless dominated by the magnificent view of the green and hilly scenery stretching far into the distance. It might offer some nice trekking, and the light is beautiful.

    Hello Jean,
    The Captain obviously hired a professional painter to create this mural. It's so nicely done that it could attract customers (at least for a while) even if the food wasn't any good. Is this a kind of Hells Angels den? ;-)
    The sun wasn't shining your way but you exposed the shady wall very nicely anyway.

    Hello Jorge,
    I planned to write about this in the morning but somehow I forgot it. So here I go: This very long building has clearly seen better days, but basically it's quite beautiful with the pink colour and the nicely designed windows. The portico is quite impressive. It was another dull day with hardly any sky at all, but the building and the lawn provide enough colours.
    Regards,
    Gert
