    Hello György,
    Finally back to a nothing special. A gentle man on a bike, seemingly not at all upset to be photographed. I like the plainness of the snapshot and I don't even need a WS of him eating an ice-cream. But the people in the niche upset me. Have they never heard of distancing?
    Best wishes,
    Gert

    Hello Jean,
    How come a marvellous beach like this seems completely deserted on a sunny day in June? There is a long way to walk from the area of dry sand to the water, but that shouldn't scare people off. Whatever the reason for the emptiness you got yourself a very attractive photo with fine colours and light and the lighthouse as a nice feature in the distance.

    Hello Ryszard,
    It's a smart and attractive monument/machinery. I'm not sure how much purpose it serves, but it looks good and it's sure to catch attention and probably make people smile. There's nothing wrong with that. Besides, it is a good place to capture reflections, and selfies for those who feel like that. The WS is even more artistic and strange. A very nice TE contribution.

    Hello Zbigniew,
    This is a well composed photo with stunning colours and a very good exposure. The illuminations make the boat look terrific, and I really like the silhouettes of the two men. I wonder what was in the bottle. ;-)

    Hello Ike,
    This must have been even more fun than the usual airplanes, maybe even more than the tractors nearby. The three photos are all bright and colourful and technically excellent. They are also very neatly cropped, regardless whether you did that already in the camera or afterwards in the computer.

    Hello Bev,
    I like the thick carpet of green, pink and yellow in the foreground and the gentle hills in the distance. The clouds are dark enough to make the sky interesting, but not dark enough to look immediately threatening. As usual I like a human presence. Maybe that was someone close to you temporarily walking ahead of you.
    The pink against green makes the WS very pretty too. Both photos have an attractive light and are very nicely composed.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Rob,
    This shows that there is no reason to give up hope of interesting photos just because it's raining. The water running down the window has had a very nice effect. But is it impressionism? Maybe it's rather some kind of pluvialism, a rarely seen but not unique artistic style. The WS show us entertaining but more common combination of real views and reflections.
    Thanks for your comments a short while ago. I had a look at my photos from the solar plant, but they are really too boring and unattractive for this site.
    Best regards,
    Gert

    Hello Miguel,
    This is another nice view showing pleasant people and lots of colourful items to watch. We get a good view along the corridor. Again I would have liked to suggest a crop of the less interesting right side, but I refrain from making a workshop.

    Hello Jorge,
    This is a fantastic building, really original and very photogenic. I see on internet that it offers great photo opportunities from different distances and angles and at different times of the day. I would not be surprised if you will show us more photos for the next few days. ;-)
    But this photo is very nicely cropped and taken in a beautiful warm light. The sharpness is perfect.

    Hello Malgo,
    Three nice photos of what is obviously a beautiful part of the city. The large pink palace is a very impressive building, so we should be grateful the Nazis never got a chance to destroy it, or other treasures of this city. I like the horses, and the best thing is that the two we see are so different. I wonder if those on the other side are also individually created.

    Thanks for you comments to my latest photo. I found in my diary that I had talked to several persons at the solar plant who told me about the technical problems that had made the project fail. But now I think there are several similar projects being built, and already started in Mali and probably other countries in the region. The technology has no doubt improved enormously in 40 years.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    This is a marvellously decorated crypt. most of it in quite good condition. The well handled light and perfect sharpness allows us a very good close look at the many beautiful details.

    Hello Krzysztof,
    The house is not in a good shape, but the window and surrounding details do very well in a photo. The peeling paint and cracks in the wall are rather fascinating. You captured this with good colours and sharpness.

    Hello Jean,
    I guess you wouldn't be alone here very long. I like how you captured the wave just as it was breaking onto the beach. The clouds are nicely shaped and the orange leaf is a fine detail.

    Hello Ricardo,
    This is a spectacular scenery of steep hills and many tones of green and light brown. The small farms in the valley are beautifully located and provide good focal points, but this seems to be a very remote place to live. It is a beautiful photo, and a painter should be excited to capture this view.

    This is not the dramatic scenery of high mountains you have shown us many times, but a very beautiful landscape of hills covered with dense forests. I really like the soft shapes and the many tones of green.

    Hej Lars,
    Helgonporträtten får mig att tänka på praktbyggnader i länder med en annan "religion", där fasaderna kunde prydas av Marx, Engels...
    Men tack vare jätteporträtten fick du en lite annorlunda bild av denna välkända fasad. Tyvärr blev torget lite stökigare med alla barrikader och stolar, men det visar ju att detta var en alldeles särskild dag.
    Hälsningar,

    Hello Janusz,
    A nice photo slightly different from most pictures from Venice. No narrow canals, no bridges but more like a big city view. I was not interested in the gondolas. I saw Venice on foot and used the vaporetto to get to another area. I like the sharpness and fine colours of this photo.

    Hello John,
    You were not completely alone here. One man is watching the water, but he is standing in the shade of the trees and I hardly noticed him first in the darkness. Even then he adds a fine human presence to the photo. It's a really beautiful view of the pretty buildings, the old bridge and the fine reflections. The photo carries your trademarks of a balanced composition and fine colours.

    Hello György,
    The perspective cheated me for a moment. I thought you had been looking down a hill to the cabins on the slope of another hill. Then it struck me that the water should have floated down... ;-)
    It's a nice view but again not one of my favourites from your gallery. It gets a smiley for sharpness and colours and for telling me a story.
    Best wishes,
    Gert
