    Hello Pavle,
    This is a good, low perspective of the old bridge where the cars and the details of the roof create quite good depth. The traffic signs are eye-catching and the trees are good complements to the view.

    Hello Ike,
    Fascinating combination of street and staircases. The vertical shape underlines the slightly chaotic impression. No doubt an interesting place to explore randomly and maybe get confused. Colours and sharpness are superb.

    Hello Ian,
    The colours of the roof, dry weeds and the grass match each other nicely and the abandoned cottage is quite photogenic in its own right, especially against the dark blue background. The main photo is well composed and both WS are nice.

    Hello Murat,
    Three amusing photos. Cats always act as if they own the place. This time the story about the cat guiding you around was more important than composition and cropping of each individual photo.

    Hello Paul,
    I continue in someone else's footsteps. This is quite spectacular. So much work for three days display. Is the colourful carpet protected from clumsy drunkards or thieves at night? According to the note this carpet should have been arranged last year. Did the Covid conditions allow that, or was it postponed like the Olympic Games?
    I note that since 2008 you learned to make workshops.

    Gert

    Hello Paul,
    I saw this among the recently commented photos, and since I hadn't seen it before I felt a need to make my own remarks that it is a spectacular photo. So many airplanes in just a few minutes, or could some perhaps have been UFO's? It's an amazing sky, but even so the razor sharp silhouettes of trees are the best features.

    Hello Kari,
    I went to HEL once but luckily I made it safely back to ARN. HEL was actually nicer than I had expected. ;-) It's a very clear and sharp photo from a day when the weather seems to have been favourable. Lots of details can be observed with surprising sharpness.

    Hello Jean,
    This is a surprising view. The lack of grey buildings near the water makes it look much less English than I would have expected. Maybe it's the "un-English" blue sky too. ;-) Both WS seem more typical, and especially #1 has a very attractive view. But the main photo's view towards trees and green hillsides is very attractive, and I like the ordinariness of the boats. No flashy, expensive yachts. It's a very pretty view and the colours are beautiful.
    Best regards,
    Gert

    This must be the one you referred to. Yes, some similarities, but somehow Burma and Sweden are totally different. ;-)

    Hello Chris,
    The waves make this view quite dramatic, the fort provides an impressive background and the orange fisherman is a real eye-catcher. This photo is composed basically the same way as the last one from China, where three strong elements form a great unity. The strong colours make a strong impact.

    Hello Silvio,
    This could have been somewhere in northern Scandinavia. So many trees everywhere, and not even the houses would be totally out of place here. It's a beautiful view and the photo has a great clarity and perfect sharpness.

    Hello Ian,
    It wasn't just the lady in red that deserved to be seen in colours. The flowers, the flag and many blue details also make this view quite bright and lively, along with the many persons and the charming houses. The WS also shows a nice part of the street, but people are so much more attractive than cars.

    Each photo has its advantage. This one is nicely shot through the arches and the tiles have beautiful pastel colors. WS1 has depth and people, WS2 has the gilded ' 'signs' between the windows.

    Hello Luciano,
    Three good photos but the main one is my favourite. It gives us the best general overview of the marvellously decorated church, and there is a "person" in the foreground. Actually, any strong feature in the foreground benefits almost every composition. In this case the statue helps to create nice depth with the assistance of the patterned floor. Especially this main photo is also perfectly exposed.

    Hello Robert,
    This is a very sweet photo. I would not have dared to take anything like this unless I was sure they didn't notice me. It's a good thing that they can't be identified, so the closeness doesn't hurt anyone. It's an interesting tangle of arms and heads and baseball caps. You spotted this nice moment well and handled it impressively quickly.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
