    Hello Jorge,
    I guess I could count the windows, if I really wanted to, but it would be a waste of time and I can enjoy the light and colours of the photo anyway. It's an amusing comment on the "holes" in the wall representing holes in the budget.

    Hello Krzysztof,
    A good photo from a low angle. There are fine details, including the crucifix that to me looks relatively modern. But maybe I am wrong. The photo has a fine symmetry and is very nicely exposed.

    Hello Costantino,
    At least one person was sitting at the café. He really makes such a difference for the photo. In the distance the boat is just as important for the view of the sea and the hills. Human presence and good focal-points mean a lot.

    Hello Pavle,
    Another abandoned house with a wall so ugly that it has become a kind of public street art. I tried to translate the graffiti but it didn't seem to make any sense. This is anyway a good observation from your city.

    Hello Murat,
    The main photo is the most interesting composition with fine details, a lot of curves and good reflections. The table reminds me of the one Putin uses, with himself at one end and the only visitor in the far distance.
    The pardon of Richard Nixon was not among Ford's most glorious moments.

    Hello Kasia,
    I am sorry to hear that you are also not well, but I wish you a speedy recovery. Things have not been going your way recently.
    It's a nice portrait of the lady looking into the distance, obviously not at you. Her beautiful bright shawl makes her eye-catching from any distance.

    Hello Kari,
    There are a few details that wouldn't fit a 19th century painting, but the view generally, and the light and colours, would seem very appropriate in an art museum.

    Hej Lars,
    Jag blev lite nyfiken på din kamera, eftersom du alltid tar så enormt skarpa bilder, så jag Googlade lite. Den är ju jättedyr! Jag nöjer mig med min lilla smidiga Canon, trots att bildkvalitén inte är riktigt jämförbar.
    Bortsett från skärpan är detta ju en trevlig bild av åtminstone ett vackert hus med mängder av fina detaljer. De är lagom förvrängda för att göra bilden spännande.
    Hälsningar,
    Gert

    Hello Silvio,
    It's another fine castle located in a beautiful scenery. The bell tower rises high above the roofs with the mountain as a background. The light is good and so are the colours and sharpness.

    Hello Bev,
    Reading your note I realize this tree is a real local hero that deserves to be standing in the spotlight. But just as much as I like the warm light shining on the carpet of lichen, I like the shadows of leaves on another tree. They are like decorations created by nature. This is well spotted and the shady green background is very nice too.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Jean,
    This flower would probably be useless for brushing a bottle. It's so much better just to admire its colours and fine details. It's really beautiful in this fine light.

    This is an original composition. The emptiness of the restaurant and the entire street creates a strange atmosphere. Your shadow provides the human touch I always like to see in a street photo. ;-)

    Hello Murat,
    This is an interesting and a bit unusual picture. The photo of the White House provides a good background and it's sharp enough to give us a good idea of the work being done.
    Sweden has fought a lot of wars throughout our history against Denmark and Russia. Another war with Denmark is of course out of the question now, but we can only hope we won't have another armed conflict with Russia.

    Hello Luciano,
    It's butterfly season, maybe the best time of the year for you and Silvio. This one is quite lovely, especially the combination of yellowish/beige insect and purple flower, with the usual mainly green and sufficiently blurred background. The good light has enhanced the colours and you put the sharpness in the right place.

    Hello Luis,
    This is indeed a beautiful building, full of amazing architectural details. Probably it has been carefully restored in recent years. The photo benefits from a very good light from a good direction, and furthermore you framed and cropped it very neatly.

    Hello Paul,
    Without prior knowledge, and your note, I might have thought these were the ruins of a large industrial complex from late 19th century. Such factories, breweries etc were often beautiful brick building inspired by Renaissance architecture. Many have in recent decades been transformed into hotels, museums or shopping centers. Unfortunately this abbey is far beyond any such restoration, but it's beautiful enough as it is, which is well captured in these photos.
    Best regards,

    Hello Bev,
    I was actually wondering what kept you away. I hope your leg continues to get better. Seen from this angle the dead tree looks remarkably much like a huge lizard. I clearly see a head, legs and a long tail. Quite an adventure on a bluebell safari and an amusing photo.

    Hello Silvio,
    I pity the damage, even more so for the WS, but it is still a charming painting, even though the artist was not among the greatest of his time. But the photo is a good document with good colours and clarity.

    Hello Pavle,
    It's a nice composition, even though someone obviously helped you by placing the yellow bike in front of the yellow building. I have a similar photo from Stockholm, so maybe this has become an international trend.
