    Hello John,
    The red machine stands out brightly in this green, yellow and brown environment under the blue sky. It is amazing to learn how efficiently it handles the onions, much faster than any humans could do the same job. The note gives us important information to complement the eye-catching photo.
    Best regards,

    Hello Costantino,
    You did very well with this photo. It's very sharp and perfectly exposed and the three persons are nicely framed by the trees. The persons are well spread out and create very good silhouettes. The setting sun is beautifully reflected in the water. This is a kind of photos you know exactly how to take.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Bev,
    This is a very elegantly shaped sculpture. The main photo and one WS also give us a good view of the pleasant garden, which obviously made the visit enjoyable regardless of the art. The other WS allows us a closer look at the carefully finished surface of the stone. The three photos complement each other well, and you really had a very good light.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Jean,
    This is a very pretty composition, to a fairly large extent thanks to the unripe blackberries in the middle. The Old Man's Beard is a peculiar but very attractive plant but the photo needed the brightness of the berries. The green leaves provide a good complement to the red and white.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Pierre,
    It's a fine building seen in a good light which has had a nice effect on the colours. It's interesting to see that practically every floor has its own design and size of the windows. The people seen at the bottom create a lively atmosphere.

    Hello Silvio,
    The sculpture is beautiful but very medieval, before the artists had learned to make children look like children. Looking at it from this side it's strange that the child doesn't slip from the Madonna's lap. She doesn't hold him properly! Maybe that is the reason why they both look rather surprised in the closer views.
    But it's amazing how it has kept the colours so well. The sculpture benefits from your well handled light.
    Best regards,
    Gert

    Hello György,
    The WS is much more beautiful, but it doesn't have these bright colours and this exciting atmosphere of being on the move.
    Thanks for your latest comments. Of course the older photo is the best. That's why I picked it out the last time. And for the latest upload I had actually first chosen the view of cyclists outside the market place for the main photo. Then I thought the elephant would be more interesting.
    Best regards,
    Gert

    Hello Chris,
    It's an old church but this part looks fairly modern and quite interesting too. Cropping is an essential part of photography, too often neglected. Cropping at the right place can improve a photo tremendously.

    This doesn't seem to be the actual cathedral of Bologna, according to Wikipedia it's "a minor basilica". The link was cut off at the end. ;-)

    Hello Ike,
    An interesting panoramic view from more than nine years ago. It would probably not look the same today. The photo is well composed with the cloudy sky balancing the dark green foreground and with the sprawling city in the middle.

    Hello Krzysztof,
    Time hasn't been very kind to this stone. Eventually it will erode completely unless it's restored, but who would do that? The damage is part of the atmosphere and makes the photo interesting.

    Hello Ian,
    They will have a tough job ahead if they want to keep that severely damaged façade in the new building. It's easy to imagine it once looked like a nice place with all those trees behind. The many ibises provide an impressive sight.

    Another magnificent postcard view from very beautiful Slovenia. It's a fantastic combination of green and yellow fields, forests, calm lake and steep mountains. The church is a superb focal point.

    Hej Lars,
    Några personer till fots ser jag på vänster sida, men det var ingen fart på cyklisterna den dagen. Bilden handlar ju för övrigt mest om stålbalkar och andra bärande konstruktioner som skapar diagonaler och geometriska figurer. Den stora pylonen lutar betänkligt... ;-)

    The lines of wonderful columns and arches create good depth and the photo also benefits from a quite good light. I like the discreet decorations and the fine symmetry of the composition.

    Hello Bev,
    You describe your own photo precisely like I would have mentioned its qualities: backdrop of golden screens.... etc. There is no part of the main photo that seems unnecessary, and the light seems to have been surprisingly good. The wrought iron was certainly worth a WS.

    Hello Luciano,
    The parts of the fields that turned slightly yellow may be the signs of drought that you mention. These are of course not good signs, but they make the palette of the view more interesting. ;-) There are many beautiful tones of green and yellow on these hillsides. The sunflowers, as always, provide a fine foreground.
