    Hi Paul,
    Welcome back. Sometimes I don't check the main gallery so often I miss if someone is posting not regularly.
    Great series of photos as usually. They are subtly less sharp than your usual quality but the compositions clearly indicate that you still have great eye for attractive compositions.
    Does it mean you didn't take the camera for this trip at all? I think for scenes like this the phone may be sufficient. For more challenging conditions like blue hour the difference may be more pronounced but probably also for a trained eye...
    Very well done,

    Hi Murat,
    I read your note. Recently my washing machine was not working for over a week until we fixed it. I decided to hand wash some essentials and that made me realize how difficult life was in the past without some of the gadgets we now take for granted...
    Very nice park and nice processing as well.

    Hi Jorge,
    You did well with the processing. Yes this point of view is amazing and the picture well gives away the feeling of space. I opened in large format and it looks much better then.
    Creative title, very well done,

    Zdravo Pavle,
    Sviđa mi se tvoja pažnja prema detaljima.
    Uzeo si malo hrena tako pažljivo i napravio tri loptice od njega na tanjiru.
    Izgleda kao dobro izbalansirana ishrana.
    Veoma dobro obavljeno,

    Bonjour Jean,
    You are right some places are so magical that even the clouds do not disturb in enjoying their beauty. Here you had a nice cloud pattern and a bright day in spite of the overcast.
    Nice composition with the beach in the foreground and some boats decorating the sight.
    Very well done,

    Hi Costantino,
    Very romantic result. The view is pleasantly framed with the trees while in the centre we see two ladies relaxing on the bench. They seem to enjoy the beautiful view they watch.
    Great color sky , nice addition of some boats etc.
    The only regret is that it is a very small in size, but the quality is great,

    Hi Lars,
    Yes I also tried some concert photography, it is a challenge.
    Nice quality here, the face of the main singer is so well recorded. The silhouettes of the heads add a nice framing, we feel part of the crowd :)
    Interesting yellowish light.

    Hi Craig,
    This one is also great. This time you have that amazing panoramic view of the city in the distance.
    Drones seem to offer so many new opportunities and looking at your photos I am tempted but sadly I have a choice: go for a trip or buy a drone and of course the drone is getting postponed...
    Excellent capture,

    Hi Jean,
    The main photo is the best. You have less sky here and the tractor and the boat add some life and color to the scene. We can also see a very attractive texture of the rocks at the back.
    Excellent final effect,

    Hi Ike.
    Very well captured lovely bird. You caught t in a nice pose and in a natural environment.
    The main photo feels subtly more colorful with more water reflecting some blue-ish color of the sky.
    Great wild life photography,

    Ciao Luciano,.
    I have seen so many photos of this castle and yet didn't visit it myself. I was once very close on the Kos Island from where they make day trips to Bodrum but I was with a 4 months old child so I didn't want to take complicated trips.
    Nice vibrant colors here, great POV,

    Czesc Krzysztof,
    Bardzo fajna kolekcja. Dobrze ze udalo sie im znalezc kilka uniformow nieco bardziej kolorowych -to ozywilo prezentacje.
    Zaciekawilo mnie jak zawieszone zostaly czapki: Wyglada na to ze uzywali manekinow ale nie chcieli zeby mialy glowe...

    Bardzo ladnie pokazane,

    Hi Ali,
    You are right, the presence of a person taking a selfie in the foreground always adds a nice touch. Here the young lady also has colorful clothes which further helps.
    Quite giant sculptures. To be honest I think that these days they should stop spending money on monuments like this but I suppose people have different priorities.
    Nice reportage,

    Thanks for taking us for a walk in this beautiful natural scenery. The main photo is a nice focus on the extraordinary rock formations. I love places like this. The only thing I would wish for is the blue sky above it.

    Hola Luis,
    Beautiful presentation from the lovely unknown to me town. The fountain and the houses behind are so elegant. Quite an original design of the houses as well. It was a wonderful weather day with blue sky and everything else so well lit and eye catching.
    Excellent quality presentation.

    Thank you for your note about the colors, sometimes I think I know something but then I am surprised again.

    Hi Jorge,
    Why are there only three of the Evangelists? One is missing :)
    Beautiful presentation of this familiar to us already structure. Nice angle which allowed you to include the giant statues.
    The sky makes such a huge difference for my reception of this view. The colors are amazing and everything looks amazing.
    Excellent work,
