    Bonsoir Adrian,

    L'étendue de la ville et des champs donne de la profondeur à la composition. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails de l'église et des maisons. La lumière met en valeur la Beauté des couleurs. Bonne soirée.

    Hi Ian,

    It is looking like a canyon. The point of view is showing the different layers of the rock formations. It is clear and sharp. Have a nice day.

    Hi Piotr,

    The church is well place in the frame. The point of view is showing the details of the St.Anne church. The cloudy sky does not hurt the colours output. Have a nice day.

    Hello György,
    These dark Hollywood clouds again. And a stupa, like in Tibet. Another well processed, well composed photo with strange and slightly eerie contrasts between light and dark areas.

    Hello Brenda,
    This is a kind of early industrial buildings that I love, and which have in recent decades been successfully converted into art galleries, museums, hotels etc in many places in Europe, and obviously in the US. It's a beautiful building, not least thanks to the golden statues of half naked chubby male persons of undefined age. The photos show us step by step wider views of the building. It's a very interesting upload.

    As often happens I did some more research and found a connection between the penthouse apartments and a certain well known and very influential maffia family.
    Best regards,
    Gert

    Hello Benny,
    It's an interesting picture. I was here in 1970, when all I could see of this church was the famous heap of rubble. I don't remember what the surroundings looked like but I am fairly sure none of the nice buildings seen here existed. Dresden was a rather drab city in those days. I think only the Zwinger had been rebuilt by 1970.
    This photo has a fantastic light, and you managed to capture a strong 3D effect of the church,
    Regards,
    Gert

    Hello Bev,
    The WS is well composed and gives us a better look at the surprisingly elegantly designed castle, but the combination with a city view makes this photo nicer and more informative. We see some interesting façades here and a variety of styles, which indicates that Norwich might be an interesting place. The cloudy sky was probably ideal for such mild and pleasant colours,

    Hello Sven,
    This is a good composition and a very nice view. The big white swans and the small black birds, whatever they are called, are swimming peacefully together in the dark water with the white castle in the background. Well spotted and nicely timed.

    Hi Jorge,

    The lampost is helping to frame the monument. The point of view is showing the details of the statue of Alexander S. Pushkin. The sharpness is very good. Have a nice day.

    Hello Ike,
    Happy new year to you, even though the conditions are far from the best.
    It's always nice to see a view from any of the small towns in this area. The scenery is attractive and the buildings are colourful and picturesque. This is clear and sharp, well exposed and taken from a well placed jetty.
    Best regards,

    Hello Miguel,
    I suppose the two ladies and the girl (mother, daughter and granddaughter?) were not really posing for you but maybe for somebody else. But they add beauty and the always nice human presence to the view of the slightly amusing golden statue.

    Hello Jorge,
    I guess the weather, the statue and the lamppost all favoured the conversion to B&W. Only the hedge would have contributed any colour. The photo is well balanced by the two dominant vertical elements, and the close low angle works well.

    Hello Daniel,
    It's a nicely composed photo in your very typical vertical style. It's also well exposed and a nice and quiet street. Considering the "clean" style of the architecture, which I like, it's a slight pity about the ugly graffiti, but I guess it adds some authenticity to the view.
