    Hello Malgo,
    Three nice photos of what is obviously a beautiful part of the city. The large pink palace is a very impressive building, so we should be grateful the Nazis never got a chance to destroy it, or other treasures of this city. I like the horses, and the best thing is that the two we see are so different. I wonder if those on the other side are also individually created.

    Thanks for you comments to my latest photo. I found in my diary that I had talked to several persons at the solar plant who told me about the technical problems that had made the project fail. But now I think there are several similar projects being built, and already started in Mali and probably other countries in the region. The technology has no doubt improved enormously in 40 years.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Silvio,
    This is a marvellously decorated crypt. most of it in quite good condition. The well handled light and perfect sharpness allows us a very good close look at the many beautiful details.

    Hello Krzysztof,
    The house is not in a good shape, but the window and surrounding details do very well in a photo. The peeling paint and cracks in the wall are rather fascinating. You captured this with good colours and sharpness.

    Hello Jean,
    I guess you wouldn't be alone here very long. I like how you captured the wave just as it was breaking onto the beach. The clouds are nicely shaped and the orange leaf is a fine detail.

    Nice photo like taken from a brochure for tourists. A slight pity about the railing, but colours and light are very good. The WS are also interesting.

    Hello Ricardo,
    This is a spectacular scenery of steep hills and many tones of green and light brown. The small farms in the valley are beautifully located and provide good focal points, but this seems to be a very remote place to live. It is a beautiful photo, and a painter should be excited to capture this view.

    Hello Piotr,
    This is not the dramatic scenery of high mountains you have shown us many times, but a very beautiful landscape of hills covered with dense forests. I really like the soft shapes and the many tones of green.

    Hej Lars,
    Helgonporträtten får mig att tänka på praktbyggnader i länder med en annan "religion", där fasaderna kunde prydas av Marx, Engels...
    Men tack vare jätteporträtten fick du en lite annorlunda bild av denna välkända fasad. Tyvärr blev torget lite stökigare med alla barrikader och stolar, men det visar ju att detta var en alldeles särskild dag.
    Hälsningar,
    Gert

    Hello Janusz,
    A nice photo slightly different from most pictures from Venice. No narrow canals, no bridges but more like a big city view. I was not interested in the gondolas. I saw Venice on foot and used the vaporetto to get to another area. I like the sharpness and fine colours of this photo.

    Hello John,
    You were not completely alone here. One man is watching the water, but he is standing in the shade of the trees and I hardly noticed him first in the darkness. Even then he adds a fine human presence to the photo. It's a really beautiful view of the pretty buildings, the old bridge and the fine reflections. The photo carries your trademarks of a balanced composition and fine colours.
    Best regards,

    Hello Malgo,

    An interesting old mosque that benefits from its austere construction which shifts attention to the textures and repetition of the columns. The people provide scale. Tfs!

    More like a nightmare than just a bad dream! Good sharpness and fantastic to see life starting to return to normal in Italy and Spain too. I like the warm cold color contrasts of blue and yellow. Tfs!

    Hello György,
    The perspective cheated me for a moment. I thought you had been looking down a hill to the cabins on the slope of another hill. Then it struck me that the water should have floated down... ;-)
    It's a nice view but again not one of my favourites from your gallery. It gets a smiley for sharpness and colours and for telling me a story.
    Best wishes,
    Gert

    Good inclusion of the musicians to add interest to the impressive cathedral interior. I wonder if they accompany the organ pipe? Nice repetition of the Gothic arches. Well framed and composed. Tfs!

    Hello Costantino.
    Boats and a sunset: two of your favourite motifs. But where are the silhouettes of people? ;-)
    I'm just joking. This is a beautiful composition even without any people, and the bright sun is very well exposed. The slightly dark cloud is another fine feature of this pleasant photo.

    Gert
