    Hello Luciano,
    A great tribute to the Hitler of the Middle ages...;-). It's as if the Nazis had won WW2. But disregarding the heritage of Tamerlane both photos are good. Especially the main photo is very well composed and perfectly exposed. The great warrior looks less impressive in the WS...

    Hello Malgo,
    Two, or four, interesting photos from this weird castle. Obviously a lot of people haven't bothered about the "No entry" sign. They have had plenty of time to adorn the walls with graffiti. It's an amazing room and it probably makes a greater impression now, when it's totally empty, than if the castle had been completed and furnished. I like the WS too, especially the upper part where we see a woman sitting in a window in the tower.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Stephen,
    This small town offered lots of good photo opportunities. In this view towards the church the ivy covering the entire wall to the left is a perfect eye-catcher. It is to some extent balanced by the plant in the window to the right. The colourful mannequins play the same role as humans would have done to enliven the view. It's a very well composed photo with attractive colours.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Ike,
    Two kinds of strong vertical accents working well together, one natural and one man-made. The blue tones of reflections in the hundreds of windows provide a fine background to the green and grey trees.

    Hello Christiane,
    The style makes this building look older than it is. The photo is uncomplicated but gives us a clear and sharp view of the many attractive details, especially on the windows. The woman near the entrance is not really important but her presence nevertheless gives the photo a much needed life. Exposure and sharpness are faultless.

    Hello Tomek,
    Although the sharpness is not the best I like this photo for the composition and the moment it shows. I understand why you wanted to save this glimpse of the young woman sitting by the fountain letting herself cool off from the water sprayed at her. The photo has a great atmosphere and the trees form a fine background.

    Hello Pierre,
    This is a very elegant building, but I would have expected to see it in a small village rather than at a busy city street. You took the photo from a good angle which gives us a maximum view of the façade. The trees on both sides serve well as frames, and the exposure and colours are excellent.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Silvio,
    How nice to see one of your delightful butterflies again. As always you captured it with excellent sharpness as it spread its wings perfectly. The yellow and blue flowers and green leaves provide a beautiful background.

    Hello Dale,
    What's a poster like that doing on a gate like this? It's a most unusual and surprising photo, but I like the hopelessly peeling blue paint and the other details of the gate. I just can't understand why that poster has been stuck to it - and in the US of all places. It looks funny, but a word or two about where you saw this and why... why.. could have been a good idea.

    Hello Kari,
    I am not particularly interested in cars as such, but the colours and light in this showroom create a fascinating atmosphere. I don't deny that these cars are beautifully designed, but it's the theatrical effect of the dark floor and people standing in a kind of spotlight surrounded by cars that I like the most. It's a very well taken photo from a perfect elevated position.
    Best regards,

    Hello Piotr,
    I would not have noticed the reverse hands of the clock. You would have to know the right time to observe this. But the clock and the entire tower is very attractive and the man playing the accordion next to the flowers is a clear bonus to the photo. It is also very well exposed.

    He is doing an interesting craft that is almost as old as mankind. It's fascinating to watch him doing this and the photo benefits from a good light and sharpness and a straightforward composition.

    Hello György,
    How do you know we never get bored of the Miskolc sign? You never asked us.
    Just joking. I suppose most people coming here see this for the first time, so they have to take the same photo as everybody else before them. It's only you that comes here regularly to take the same picture of people taking the usual picture.
    As usual this is a photo of very good colours and clarity. In this case the four persons placed themselves perfectly.

    Hello Chris,
    This photo has very good sharpness and colours and it is well composed with the artist in the foreground and the clocktower far behind, with an invisible diagonal drawn between them. From this angle we can clearly see the artist at work, and the display of his former work. I like the inclusion of the little boy looking over the artist's shoulder. It's strange that artists like this one can be found in every touristy city probably all over the world. They are all talented craftsmen but their portraits are of exactly the same style.

    Gert

    Hello Malgo,
    This is weird enough, but I was hoping for something even weirder. ;-) Neuschwanstein is also quite weird, but at least King Ludwig had enough money to finish it. It's a good photo and it provides interesting information. I never heard of this before. But did you get inside? It is not quite clear from the note. I see that Craig got very excited. Just what I expected. ;-)

    Hello Jean,
    It could be beautiful to walk barefoot in this sand an early morning before the small beach gets crowded. It's a very attractive view with good colours and light and a nice effect of the tiny "dunes" formed in the sand.

    Hello Ryszard,
    I was hoping for a photo like this since I saw a glimpse of the same view in an earlier picture. I love this kind of views from above which often are graphically very interesting. In this case the effect is exceptional, thanks to the patterns of the tiles. The people look like they are players in a gigantic human board game. Fascinating.

    Hello Jorge,
    I would not have thought of this as a cathedral unless you had told us. It could have been a memorial to an unknown soldier or an outdoor art gallery or whatever, especially considering the colourful glass sculptures on the sides. There is no way to tell the dimensions, but it is still an interesting and attractive photo with these steep steps looking towards the sky.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Stephen,
    It looks like it could have been a hot day, and the street looks very long, so this couple found a nice shady place for a rest. Maybe they also decided to have a meal in the restaurant just behind them. It's a nice view with rather plain but attractive buildings and a nicely cobbled street.
    Kind regards,
