    Hello Pavle,
    It's a nice street and it was a good idea to show it facing two directions. The trees are essential for creating a pleasant atmosphere. On such dangerously hot days only the early morning provides a reasonable temperature. Take care.

    Hello Paul,
    Luckily the people living here are probably sober when walking home at night. These walkways are in a good condition, but they are not very wide, so one wrong step when looking around for photo opportunities could cause an accident. The WS show even more fascinating glimpses of strange living conditions, while the main photo is the most colourful and has a very good depth.

    Hello Ike,
    You managed two more technically and artistically fine photos. The main one is very elegantly composed with one dancer standing up surrounded by three lying down. She is well placed to the side, the light in the foreground is perfectly managed and the dark background heightens the dramatic effect of the performance.

    Hello Ian,
    Three equally good photos from the small town facing the sea. I have a slight preference for WS #1 for the best view towards the sea, the best view of a house and for the human presence.

    Another magnificent macro photo of a butterfly on a flower. Their colours are nicely matching and the blurred green area provides a perfect background.

    Hello Luciano,
    The decorations of this room are very impressive. They are so cleverly made that I really have to convince myself that what looks like statues in niches of the wall are really trompe l'oeil paintings. Their 3d Effect is amazing. You exposed the photo perfectly and it's taken from a good angle with fine balance.

    Hello Gyφrgy,
    Funny silhouettes of two men obviously busy with some unknown religious rite. They are very neatly framed by the sides of the cave and the photo is perfectly exposed with very well captured details in all parts.

    Hello Luis,
    I remember my hours at the Prado as my happiest moments while in Madrid. I was stunned by the size and visual impact of Picasso's 'Guernica' (which was moved a few years later) and the art of especially Goya and Velazquez. Compared with the works of these great artists the building pales for my eyes, but it is still a magnificent piece of architecture and this photo shows it from a good angle. The persons are important elements of the composition.

    Hello Kari,
    You made a great observation here. I imagine seeing a painting (or several) reflected in the window panes, but I doubt it was as good as the work of art created by the window itself, and your camera. By comparison the chairs are very down to earth in an amusing way.
    Have a nice weekend,

    Hello Michael,
    He looks old and maybe tired, but he seems to be a book lover, so he couldn't be completely lost. You made another good observation and also very nicely captured the father carrying the girl on his shoulders. Three generations in one shot, the older man well placed in the light and the couple against a dark background.

    Hello Bev,
    In times like these it's great to have well stocked archives to dig through. Who could ever get tired of beautiful views from Florence? It's not just the view of the Duomo and Palazzo Vecchio that makes this photo enjoyable. You used one tree well as a frame and placed the other tree and the tower perfectly on thirds. The light is wonderful too.

    Hello Pavle,
    I wouldn't like to walk on these tin roofs. They must be burning hot, but their colour connect them well with the brick roofs further away. 40 °C is dangerously hot, so I hope you are very careful.

    Interesting old items are shown to the left. It's amusing to see three old photos looking quite similar to the one you posted yesterday. It's a well exposed photo from this place where the light was probably not very good.

    Hello Loong,
    Wow, this is a great photo with fantastic contrasts of light and dark areas and very nicely rounded shapes. The trees growing in this strange place create a mysterious atmosphere, but the finest detail in my mind is the person towards the left side. He (or maybe she) describes the immense size of the cave and also intensifies the strange atmosphere, looking alone and vulnerable in a kind of fairytale place.

    Hello David,
    It's a very nice bird, but I'm not sure what kind. Probably not a woodpecker. A little detail like this would have brightened your day at the beach. You placed it well towards the side and the walkway creates nice depth.

    Hello Silvio,
    This place is quite well known on TE, but I had probably never heard of it before I joined the site. It's easy to understand its popularity among photographers. The views are tremendous. Here we also get a good view of where I suppose there were landslides. I hope the entire village will not collapse. It's a wonderful photo with good balance and superb light.
