    Hello Ali,
    The warm red and yellow lights create a good atmosphere in the blue hour and the lake creates perfect reflections. I can imagine the excitement among the people gathered down there to amuse themselves.

    Hello Jorge,
    It's a good and artistic composition and you exposed it well despite the very large white area. I might have cropped it a bit more top and bottom, to delete the sky and the street.

    Hello Pavle,
    This looks good enough and very filling. I am considering making myself an omelette for lunch very soon and fry some bacon along with it. That will be good enough for me.

    Hello Ian,
    It's not a dramatic scenery, but the low hills and many trees are quite pleasant. It looks like an area where the lazy travellers or those not perfectly fit could try some mountaineering.

    Hello Ike,
    This would have been like a great playground for you, and no need to worry about getting the focus right. The light was good enough and you cropped the photo well.
    Have a nice weekend.

    Hello Murat,
    It's a nice church, and even though the weather wasn't very inviting the colors have turned out well. The hotel ceiling would have done well in a series of minimalism.
    Have a nice trip.

    Hello Malgo,
    I have a photo of myself as a child standing with one foot in Sweden and the other in Norway, but of course this is a much greater event. And it's in colours, with a nice background and many other persons.
    It's good to see you posting again after such a long absence. Hopefully being active here again could distract you a little bit from your sorrow and worries. Losing 10 kilos doesn't sound so bad. I am sure many persons would envy you. ;-)
    Kind regards,

    Hello Costantino,
    Red is a good colour to make a photo catch attention. On this boat there are also lots of equipment to watch, plus there is a great reflection in the water. A very nice and well exposed photo.

    Hello Loong,
    A very good picture, full of life and action, colours and interesting sights. It's well balanced and you have written an informative note telling us all we need to know about what we see. It's a perfect contribution to TE, and it's entertaining. The WS is a good complement showing us how to start a career as a SUP-er.
    Have a nice weekend,

    Hello Luis,
    This is a very nice photo with quite a lot of fine details to watch. You will think I am crazy, but my favourite part of the photo is the white wall with the lady in blue coat and the large flower pots. I might have cropped that part into a separate photo. Of course the church and the monument are more important, but all these elements together form a very good view. The persons sitting by the fountain are also nicely included even though they are squeezed into the corner. The fine light and colours also make this a highly enjoyable picture, and the tighter composition of the WS is also very nice.
    Best regards,
    Gert

    Hello Ali,
    This photo has a moody atmosphere which could be seen as a symbol of your farewell to this area. Your interesting vacation trip was ending and the blue sky had disappeared. It was time to go back to your everyday life.

    Hello Chris,
    It's a fascinating scenery but just as fascinating are the signs of ordinary human life inside these rocks. They could easily have been overlooked if you hadn't pointed them out. A few years ago a very good film called "Winter Sleep" was shot in this area, partly inside such modern cave dwellings. It's a long and slow film but very cleverly made. It was awarded the Golden Palm at Cannes in 2014 and should be available from streaming sites.

    Hello Ian,
    Obviously a potentially nice beach shown in a well balanced photo. I wouldn't have objected if you had chosen the WS as a main photo for the boy, the jetty and the lawn. But maybe the light was more favourable in this direction.

    Hello Murat,
    Plensa's statues seem to be found everywhere, even in a few places in Stockholm, and this one is immensely more entertaining than the traditional statue in the WS. The two men make this photo immensely more entertaining than it would have been without them.

    Hello Costantino,
    This is a surprising jump back one year to your visit to Luxembourg. But roses look beautiful wherever they are grown. You composed this well with a large pink rose in the foreground where it catches my full attention.

    Hello Ike,
    I didn't know there was a Melbourne in Florida. I only knew the Australian one, and for all that I know they might have looked the same. This looks nice and orderly, but the immediate surroundings may produce some surprises, as shown in the WS.

    Hello David,
    I have seen a number of English pubs but this looks very different. Maybe those I frequented in the 1960's were already too trendy or posh. This looks more like somebody's very large sitting-room. The WS are interesting complements.

    Hello Silvio,
    It's a beautiful room with a very elegantly built ceiling. It looks now more like an art gallery than a part of a monastery. The plants in the pots create a nice atmosphere. There was a good light that you handled well.
