    Bonjour Jean,
    Quel bonheur d'admirer de tels paysages o la biodiversit est toujours de mise ! Bonne ide d'ajouter ce joli bouquet floral en gros plan en bas de l'image(Avec une abeille en prime :-). Les fleurs sont trop petites dans ce paysage grandiose pour qu'on les distingue bien.
    Mais quelle belle valle verdoyante domine par les sommets enneigs.
    Bravo pour cette composition.

    Hello Jorge,
    I have to confess that I find your stories of how you got lost in foreign cities quite amusing. It happens to everyone, including me, but your troubles of finding your way always sound funnier. ;-)
    But without running into problems you may not have found this place. Even if most of the photos from here were not good, it was enough to have one very good to show us. The illuminated fountains and the distant buildings are very well exposed, but the man sitting in the foreground is essential to the composition. He makes the photo so much more interesting.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Mesut,
    It's a fine portrait of this unfortunate man. Maybe the superstition has enabled him to live a reasonably normal life, but I doubt very much that he is so rich. But the photo is perfectly sharp and very well exposed.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Nicolas,
    Another Alpine scenery looking like a painting. The pink tone of the sunrise is amazing. It makes the peaks look like they were made of iron or copper. The strong contrasts also make this photo very attractive.

    Dear Lars,
    Very sad indeed ! Dear Malgo who could post such a beautiful photo of what it used to be like .
    Incredible that the collapsed rocks have completely disappearted into the sea !
    I remember well the big storm of March 2017( We had it here too in western Brittany ; we were witout electricity for 5 days :-(
    I did read about this unfortunate event in Malta. I suppose it would be impossible to consolidate all these precious sites in danger ?
    And unfortunately, this kind of accident will happen more and more often because of global warming :-(
    Your picture is nice though, with the rosy colours of the rocks on the right and the deep blue sea on the left.
    TFS and kindest regards.

    Hello Krzysztof,
    What a magnificent concert hall. The musicians can admire themselves in that fantastic mirror. And if the music is boring the audience have plenty of beautiful details on the walls and the ceiling to admire. It's a very well taken photo where you handled the rather sharp light well.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Malgo,
    We get the best view of the painter's face in the upper photo, the light and exposure are the best in the middle one, and in the lower photo we see the nicest background, and a part of the painting. I have no complaints. ;-)
    But there should be more complaints, not just "very good, very nice" all the time. Look at photos posted here 10-15 years ago. The critiques were much more constructive than today. Then it was possible to learn from your mistakes because they were politely pointed out to you.
    Have a nice weekend,

    Great candid portrait with the shallow depth of field highlighting the main subject. Lovely colours of the robes are visible in the background.
    Thank you for your critique - there weren't many other tourists in Moto Hakone. Maybe because of the low season - it was a couple of weeks before sakura and long time from the red maple season. Or maybe things really have changed in Japan in the last 10+ years and there are many more visitors and photographers everywhere you go...

    Amsterdam would have been a logical addition to Bremen and Brussels with similar gable houses but we have already agreed it's all about people and old vehicles and the atmosphere of the 60s. I really like the ladies with prams walking towards you and the tram just about to enter the square.
    We all (except, maybe, for Malgo :) have been to places where we didn't manage to take any images - mine are, among all, Guwahati and Bishkek.
    Have a nice weekend!

    Hello Philippe,
    It's a most beautiful photo and very well composed. The heron is perfectly placed next to the leaning trees, very clearly seen against the light blue water. The smooth surface of the lake was disturbed by something close to the shore. Maybe a fish waiting to be eaten by the heron? The trees across the lake are beautifully reflected and you captured the entire scene in a remarkably well exposed and sharp photo.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Pavle,
    These apples look even more appetizing than the grapes the other day. They will be delicious to eat when they are ripe and they already look very nice among the leaves. Three nice photos, all of them well exposed and sharp.

    Bonjour Paul,
    Cette photo et cette pratique me rappellent d'excellents souvenirs ainsi que les connaissances que m'avait apport un ami indien de TE (Lakshmi1949)(mes photos 187 et 186).
    Rangoli et kolam sont une jolie tradition, la fois pour la vue et pour leur sens profond d'accueillir les visiteurs dans les foyers jusqu'aux cratures les plus petites, comme les fourmis !
    Votre photo est trs colore, ce qui se marie bien avec le sourire de la vendeuse.
    Bon weekend.

    Hello Ryszard,
    It's a very good composition of the original and eye-catching arch framing the view of the steps and the nice buildings in the background. The exposure is perfect and the colours are very nicely mild. I am, honestly, not totally satisfied with the lower part, but it's a minor objection to a generally excellent photo.
    Best regards,

    I can't remember if I have seen this building, I would have remembered if I had seen your photo before I had gone to Stockholm.
    I can see that the photo was taken last year during the "Swedish heat wave" - forgive the inverted commas, just back from Bangladesh... ;-) Jokes aside, you captured the atmosphere of the summer in the city very well. Oh, and nice light on the faade of the theatre too. :-)

    Hello Ian,
    This is what I expected to see after your hint yesterday, and from what I could detect through the mist. It was obviously once a glorious building, but I don't even want to think of the cost of bringing it back to an inhabitable standard. The photo doesn't need any improvement.

    Hello Takero,
    It's a beautiful portrait of the young novice nun who looks very pretty even with her shaved head. If she leaves the monastery and lets her hair grow I bet many young men will go crazy for her. You singled her out from the background with this perfect dof.
    Kind regards,
