    Hello Silvio,
    Another old church! And a very beautiful one too. I love the paintings above the nearest arch and the altar. There is a very good light, perfect symmetry and nice depth.

    Hello Daniel,
    I like the diagonal lines and the areas of green and grey. The blue flowers are well placed in the foreground and you timed the photo well to include the cyclist who illustrates the note.

    Hello Krzysztof,
    You used this trick again, and you did well this time too. The bright view and the interesting wooden sculpture stand out strongly against the pale blurred background.

    Hello Ian,
    When I hear stories like this I get more and more convinced that a total environmental disaster within the next few decades is inevitable. Everyone (basically) knows the drastic measures that have to be taken to prevent the disaster but the big companies' profits are always more important. And almost all governments are too scared to lose votes to do anything. It's mainly "blah, blah, blah" to quote Greta Thunberg.
    Both photos are "nice", but that's not so important.
    Best regards,

    Hello Pavle,
    It's a very nice view of the river where the water seems to be back at a normal level after the drought of summer. I like the darker blue tone of the water under the lighter blue sky. You balanced the photo well.

    Hello Murat,
    It's a nice view towards the Blue Mosque and it's well framed by a corner of the Hagia Sophia and a tree. On my first visits to Istanbul I used to stay in a budget hotel in the narrow street on the right side of this. It was a convenient location but now it's gone and the street is completely changed.

    You found a perfect circle and perfectly reflected trees of bright autumn colours. It's an amazing view and a very good composition with a slight touch of surrealistic art.

    Hello Brenda,
    It's fun to see the exciting elements of the Oculus from an angle where they have become parts of the background and the focus is elsewhere. Like the "street art" or the crowd of people relaxing with a few glasses of beer. (Do people actually drink beer from glasses in the US? The last 500 times I've seen people drinking beer in American movies it's always been straight from the bottle.)
    This is a good combination of architecture, art and human touch. The WS shows us this place in its greater context and we see the Oculus more like we are used to. Both photos are very nice but this is definitely also my choice of main upload.
    Best regards,
    Gert

    Hello John,
    It must have been difficult to take a panning picture from this angle, but you did it surprisingly well. The front of the car and the two persons are very sharp, but we can see the wheels spinning round and the scenery is sufficiently blurred. And you didn't forget the exposure while you were busy with the panning. It's very well done.
    Best regards,
    Gert
    PS My congratulations on your wedding anniversary. :-)

    Hej Lars,
    Inte lika pittoreskt som de små kvarteren av idel korsvirkeshus, men likafullt ganska stiliga byggnader, och de speglar sig fint i det nästan svarta vattnet. Du placerade lyktstolpen fint på vänsterkanten som en del av en sorts inramning.
    Hälsningar,

    Hello Kari,
    This is an extremely pretty village, at least from some distance, and from this angle it forms a real postcard view. It's a well structured photo with the trees on the right side giving some balance to the tall church tower. The background mountains form nice diagonals. The photo is in every way well taken.

    Very strange rocks rising so steeply from the relatively smooth looking mountainsides. I have seen it before but it is still a marvellous sight. It's a spectacular photo, well taken.

    Hello Ike,
    This was an amusing initiative which resulted in a very colourful and playful exhibition. I suppose many artists were involved in this project and were all given free hands to create anything they wanted. All kinds of ideas flourished here.

    Hello Pierre,
    This dam is quite interesting and it has created a nice pattern of small streams of water among the small rocks rising above the surface. There is a nice rural scenery in the upper part of the photo. You timed this shot well from the plane.

    Hello Silvio,
    A fascinating look inside the curious cave used as a chapel. The incredible number of ancient temples in this part of Italy never stops to amaze me, and you are working hard to make a complete collection, or so it seems.

    It's an ugly window and an ugly wall but a well composed photo. It looks more like an abandoned prison than an abandoned mansion, but there are many small details that make it an interesting composition.
