    Hello Chris,
    The old building is quite beautiful, which is even more clearly proven by the WS, and from this angle you also found nice frames. The wooden texture is well captured. I haven't been to Skansen for probably more than 30 years so I don't remember if I have seen this Norwegian hut. Maybe I should have a look next summer.

    Hello Nicolas,
    A magnificent photo of the red sky and the reflections that make me think the house is on fire. I like the contrast of the dark feature with straight lines in the lower corner and the soft, bright shapes in the upper corner.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Pierre,
    It's a bit surprising to find this view in Canada. I would have guessed this was somewhere behind the former "Iron curtain" of eastern Europe. The older buildings are grey and dull, the more recent ones white and dull. That is no criticism of the photo as such. It is well taken, nicely exposed and quite interesting.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Denis,
    A nice view in three sections of Calvi seen from the fortress. The warm light falls perfectly on the middle section, the most important one, while the distant view of the hills is mainly in the shade,

    Helo Bev,
    The church has a beautiful simplicity, but it's the myriad of old brick roofs that makes the real impact of this photo. It's a marvellous view and even those roofs that seem newer than the rest follow the tradition. It's an advantage to this photo that you cut off the sky, but the WS is also nice in spite of the dull sky. The view of the green hills and distant mountains is very nice.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Takero,
    Welcome back. You were gone so long I thought that perhaps you had decided to leave the site. It's always a pleasure to see photos from this fantastic place. The buildings are so attractive and the snow covers the village beautifully. It's a remarkable view captured with a very fine light and contrasts.

    Hello Gerrit,
    This is such an interesting photo that it's a pity there is no note. I suppose one of the TE bugs refused it, but you can probably attach it using the "edit". It's amazing to see a village still completely surrounded by a wall in these days. You found a perfect place for this panoramic photo with a great view of the mountains in the background.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Craig,
    The paintings obviously show a lot of pieces of water melons and I saw a number of bananas in one of the workshops. Bright and amusing paintings, but maybe nothing I would want to have at home. But what about the cushions? Are they part of the show, or are visitors supposed to cuddle up there while watching the paintings? How terrible if you misunderstand their purpose and lie down on a highly valued installation!
    Fun shots and original contributions from NY.
    Best wishes,
    Gert

    Hello Ryszard,
    Windows like these seem to be very common in central Europe. They are readily used for attractive and catchy compositions, often getting brightness from red brick roofs. This roof surprises me for being slightly irregular. The face is a bit strange, but the photo has perfect sharpness and clarity.

    Hello Malgo,
    The rocks are nicely shaped and it's a very good photo. It's perfectly clear and sharp and the colours are perfect. But the myths surrounding this place sound like fake news to me. ;-)

    Hello Paul,
    Blue and yellow is possibly the most important thing that Ukrainians and Swedes have in common. We can cheer our national sports teams the same way. This is an elegant composition of great beauty and a high degree of symbolism.

    Hello Kari,
    The big rose window is impressive, in fact all of the windows are beautiful and contribute to the fine atmosphere that you captured well. It's interesting to learn that this is a combination of three photos, because I was immediately amazed at the fine light in every part of the cathedral. It would have been difficult to get such perfect exposure of dark and brighter areas in just one shot. You did your PP well.
    Kind regards,

    Three attractive photos of these impressive and elegant birds seen in various formations against the clouds. Sharpness and exposure are faultless. The note is interesting and very informative and makes me think I was actually standing there with you, hearing and watching the birds.

    Hello György,
    The boy is a fine eye-catcher for several reasons: his position in the foreground, his bright clothes and his obsession with the mobile phone. His father looks utterly bored and has probably spent a lot of time outside shops waiting for his wife. I like the shape of the photo, the depth created by the street and people and the narrow DOF. But of course it's nothing special, and obviously it doesn't appeal to those who mainly like churches and palaces.
    Best wishes,
    Gert

    There's not much here indicating Scotland, but it's a bright and attractive picture and the panda posters are also very nice to watch. The diagonal accent gives the photo a fine balance.

    Hello Serge,
    This is a very elegant composition of the curving road with two persons seen behind the bare trees. The snow and ice and the mist rising in the background clearly all indicate a very cold day. The almost total lack of colours are also typical of winter. It's a very expressive photo.

    Hello Benny,
    It's an elegant composition of simple features with clean colours. The walls along the sides and at the end of the street are well balanced and well exposed. The blue windows and the horizontal "scars" in the wall to the right are eye-catching details.

    Hello Krzysztof,
    We can see that the building has seen better days, but the scarred doorway provides a fine frame to the painting in front of the still nice looking window. The building shows traces of beauty in its deterioration and you used this well for a cleverly exposed photo taken against the light coming through the window.

    Hello Pavle,
    This sky looks amazing. Such nicely shaped clouds and such wonderful tones of orange and blue. It could have been an abstract painting or in any case the work of a master artist. It's a well composed photo with good exposure and a dark area of the ground that provides a balance.
    Kind regards,'Gert
