    Hello Kari,
    You will get several green smileys for this, so you won't have to look as depressed as the shadowy figure to the right. It is a work of art truly expressing these times and it is cleverly arranged. You also handled the light well to capture the intentions of the artist, I think.

    Hello Costantino,
    It's a nice view across the terrace and the sea, and you used the red flowers well as an upper frame. This was probably during the hottest time of the day, judging from the bright light, but it would still have been nice to see some guests sitting at any of the tables. Restaurants and cafés become less interesting without any guests.
    Regards,

    Hello Dave,
    This is a very nice view and it seems extremely typically English (or British) to me. The weather was dull but could have looked slightly less dull with the help of some slight treatment of the photo. But I find it adequately sharp and the colours are nice. I am very glad that you waited until the persons in the background had stepped inside the frame. The seagull to the right adds some atmosphere too.

    Hello Krzysztof,
    There is no sign of bad weather here, so you were lucky to see this view before the rain started. It's a very nice view, and apart from the bales of hay I like the church tower in the far distance. The light was good enough to produce fine colours.

    Hello Bev,
    I wouldn't be surprised if I have a fairly similar photo somewhere in my most ancient archive. What I can say for sure is that whatever I may have is not half as good. Maybe I had learned something about compositions already by 1969, but my cheap camera of those days would never have managed such sharpness and clarity.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Jean,
    These clouds look "wilder" and more threatening than mine. And there was hardly any wind at all when I took my photo. Apart from that our photos create a little theme for the day. ;-)
    I had to check up more about T.E. Lawrence "of Arabia" to understand Aircraftman Shaw. It seems he spent his entire life as an alias, never having a real proper name!

    Hello Pierre,
    There is a small tower that might indicate this is a church. But it could also be a lightning rod, in which case there is very little to reveal this is a church, except maybe for the large parking space. At a quick glance I might have taken it for a barn. It's not a beautiful building but it is interesting and fills a place in your series of Quebec churches.

    Hello Michael,
    A very good portrait of a woman who seems to have dressed to match the colours of the background. This could not have been a moment when you could snap a discreet shot without being noticed, so unless you already knew her well you must have a special charm to use for unknown ladies.

    Hello Ike,
    Maybe not your technically best photo, but it's an attractive minimalistic composition of the full moon and a few details to connect it with the earth. It's well done by someone who was possibly only half awake. ;-)

    Hello Jorge,
    Curious to see only the boys wearing face masks. Maybe that expresses political differences, the girls being followers of Bolsonaro so they don't believe the virus exists, while the boys listen to the opposition. Otherwise it's an ordinary scene from the street, but a nice glimpse of daily life.

    Hello Silvio,
    This is a beautiful view but also interesting. We see how the hills have been victims of erosion and landslides that give the scenery a characteristic look. Good clarity and colours in the nearer area and nicely hazy mountains in the distance. Good sharpness and exposure all over.

    Hello Pavle,
    Even in the main street you were still alone, but the many cars show that this is normally a busy part of the town. Another nice presentation of a street seen in both directions. Two well exposed and well balanced photos.

    Hello György,
    This cave obviously looks good in colours as well. We get a fine view of the entrance and the two windows, but it's still the silhouettes of two persons that make this a great photo and raises it above both WS.
    Have a nice Sunday.

    Hello Elaine,
    Another superb portrait with a perfect dark background. The man had put on a sweater that matched the colours of the onions quite well, but the best feature is no doubt the way he sucks on the cigarette and how the smoke partly covers his face.

    Hello John,
    Welcome back to TE. I thought you had got tired of the site after almost 18 years. It is worrying that you had been ill, bit I am glad to know you are feeling better. This is truly a photo in your style. The view down one of the canals of Bruges is well known but the persons walking along the river give the photo a special atmosphere. Beautiful colours and light as usual.

    Hej Lars,
    Jag undrar om de här medaljerna tillverkades speciellt för museet, eller om de senare plockades ut ur montern och överlämnades till några som gjort sig förtjänta av dem. Onekligen en vältajmad bild och snyggt tagen.
    Hälsningar,

    Hello Chris,
    Well exposed in every detail. Perhaps what we see is one of the areas where tourists are not allowed, because I get an impression of a very normal mosque used by normal Muslims for socializing just as much as for prayer. There are other mosques in Istanbul I have enjoyed more than this one, but the design and decorations are no doubt very impressive.
    Best regards,
    Gert
