    Hi Jorge,
    nice building with attractive architecture and colors.
    The perspective got quite wild here. I am not surprised, it is huge and perpendicular and you are just next to it. There is no way to get it straight or even straighten it later in the photoshop. I face often this choice, how to approach situations like that, especially that I am into postcard photos which are usually very straight.
    I don't have the answer.
    It certainly is very natural, as the eye would see it.
    Great reportage from Moscow,

    Hi Miguel,
    lovely reportage from your trip here.
    The golden statue stands out from the foggy setting. The family posing in front of the statue adds another nice touch.
    I wonder whether they were aware that they are being photographed by more than one photographer.
    Very well seen and captured,

    Hi Craig,
    I wonder at which stage would you take your family for a trip like this, knowing all the intricacies of such adventure?
    Very interesting scene indeed. I think I like the workshop photo better thanks to more color and traditional picture in the background. In the WS photo the barber seems to be quite distracted while still carrying the sharp tool near the neck of its client. I would probably make a funny title referring to that..
    Great reportage,

    Bojour Philippe,
    I am not a big fan of the cars but this is a good reportage from your trip which shows us what to expect on the way there. I would like to visit this wonderful island someday. It seems to be not too popular with English tourists, which worries me because I don't speak French.
    Very well done,

    Hi Ike,
    never enough of this spectacular coastline. The townhouse are so unique. I like the two levels of the composition with the houses on top being in a different style and less frequently built.
    The dense vegetation separates these two worlds.
    Great record of your trip there, a place which I yet have to visit someday,

    Hi Ian,
    the park reminds me the Death Valley in California where you can also see both sand dunes but also other land formations as in the earlier photos. That means I would love to visit this place, and I must keep it in mind for potential future trips to Australia.
    Great composition here with the lone tall bush standing of centre and the sand exhibiting the nice pattern in between.
    Excellent natural scene,

    Bonjour Jean,
    perfectly executed sunset photography. I like the sun being off centre with the interesting coastline formations as a silhouette in the foreground.
    The colors of the sky are stunning indeed.

    Hi Jean,
    I very much enjoyed the previous upload but it was worth to present this version as well. A very different foreground. Before you have made a great use of the low tide and the reflection, here lovely colorful foreground full of color and local interest. This main photo is my favourite out of the three photos which you showed. I think it was the best choice for the main photo.
    I like the vivid red and blue colors. Behind we can admire the panoramic view of the town.
    The sky got clearer as well providing more direct sunshine.
    Beautiful place, excellent presentation,

    Ciao Luciano,
    beautiful structure indeed. You have composed it perfectly slightly off centre and with the lovely townhouses along the riverside well seen behind.
    I would of course prefer the chapel to be well lit with the direct sunshine but under these circumstances you did a fantastic job well balancing the exposition of various areas. In a way thanks to this the chapel better stands out of the background.
    Very well done,

    Hi Paul,
    Quite a lovely composition with the characteristic terraces in the distance. The make a nice pattern while also serving as a nice background for the interesting tree. The framing with the lush vegetation in the foreground goes so well with the rest, both having various shades of green and being all natural.
    Excellent reportage,

    Hi John,
    this quite an extraordinary wedding setting. I really like the idea. Something truly original and unique.
    The tractor behind carrying sofa with the newlyweds adds a lovely background.
    I like also the presence of a well dressed lady in the red dress and in the mask of course.
    Wonderful weather day.
    Beautiful smiles on the faces as it should be:)
    Great reportage,

    Czesc Krzysztof,
    bardzo ciekawe wnetrze, troche przypomina mi wnetrze kosciola w Trebaczowie. W szczegolnosci to jak wykonany zostal oltarz. Zastanaiwam sie czyto nie byl jakis lokalny styl, moze ten sam artysta.
    Doskonale wykonanie. Centralna symetria podkresla elegancje. Swietnie zadbane.
    Tak sobie pomyslalem ze jeden swiety na obrazie po lewej stroni od oltarza jest nieustannie zasloniety tym ekranem na slajdy :)
    Pozdrawiam serdecznie,

    Ciao Silvio,
    very interesting story. The main photo shows the rich setting in which the icon was placed. It means it was always treasured there. I am glad that you included also the close up for us to better see the icon.
    This is a great upload which allows us to learn about the world through photography.

    Zdravo Pavle
    Uvek uživam u tvojim fotografijama pored reke. Volim i kompozicije hrane, a najdraže su mi verovatno pravoslavne crkve. Rečne scene zajedno sa mostom nude ovde zanimljiv kontrast između divlje prirode i industrijskog elementa koji je preseca.
    Ovde je i izazovno svetlo sa samo delom okvira osvetljenim toplim sunčevim zracima. Most i obala bili su toplo osvetljeni dok reka ostaje hladna u senci.
    Veoma dobro obavljeno,
    M.

    Hi Bev,
    great point of view indeed. I like the two layers of the composition with the stylish houses below and a nice looking cathedral in the distance.
    This looks really encouraging to visit, but i would rather wait for summer weather again before traveling that far.
    Great reportage,

    Hi Lars,
    it is certainly a good cause but the design does not seem very self explanatory. Very well presented with the context of the modern architecture at the back.
    Nice asymmetric composition. The blocks make a good repeated motif in the foreground.
    Very interesting reportage,
