    Hello John,
    This is a very good panning. The car is perfectly sharp while the blur of the surroundings indicates a high speed. We probably get an impression that the car was running faster than it actually was, but the effect is good. It is, by the way, a very nice car too.
    Best regards,

    Hello Luciano,
    By including the tourists in the foreground shade you actually made them more visible than if the entire view had been sunny. The silhouettes, including the fountain, are very eye-catching, and make the entire view more interesting. So in spite of your best intentions the tourists steal the show. ;-) But as for the church it is very beautiful in the plain, dignified Romanesque style that I love, and which is confirmed by the beautiful interior shown in the WS.

    Thanks for your comments on my latest photo. Paul had posted photos from that mausoleum taken almost 30 years after mine, and it had obviously been carefully restored, just as you wished.
    Best regards,
    Gert

    Hello Silvio,
    An impressive, dark building that makes a compact and heavy impression. This may be enforced by the strong sidelight and strong contrasts. The composition is good, with the road connecting us with the building, and the sharpness is superb.

En irlndsk pub r vl inte det jag tnker p i frsta hand infr en resa till Alsace, men det finns skert andra stllen med lite mer lokal mat och dryck. Husen har fina frger och nstan alla har sin egen stil. Gott om folk som livar upp vyn r det ocks.

    Hello Bev,
    Bright tractors and bright clothes, perfect for a photo rally. I also like how you cropped this so tightly into a bookmark shape. But what kind of a rally is this where nobody is trying to overtake the others? ;-) The 'no hands' WS made me smile. Looking at the clean tyres I realize these tractors probably don't spend much time on muddy fields.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Ike,
    This is an interesting marina of a kind I'm not used to seeing. I can't recall any other place where I've seen boats stored on shelves like here. It's a fascinating view of a place where just one man can do a lot of hard work with the assistance of modern technology.
    Thanks for your comments on my latest photo a little while ago.

    Hello Chris,
    Although I must say the earlier photo was better, this is still a good one of a number of fine buildings and a spectacular church. You had to walk a short distance to take this shot, and the different angle provided a different and more complicated light. But the view is still nice and the wooden bridge filled with autumn leaves provides a nice foreground.
    Thanks for your kind words on my latest photo.
    Best regards,

    Hello Krzysztof,
    You were late today! ;-) This is a car I remember well from long ago. It was regarded as quite modern then. It's strange how our perception changes. Now it looks old, but it is still nice and you photographed it well with fine sharpness.

    I saw this from the rail bridge on my way to the Vatican, but did not stop to go inside. Maybe another time. Good sharpness and the people add scale. Tfs!

    Hi Gerrit

    Unfortunately the Nazis drew most of Europe into a giant sinkhole, and large parts of west Russia too. The good news is that they lost. Nice that some or even all of the town of Weimar survived. Many large German cities were less fortunate. Tfs!

    Hi Paja,

    The grass is not always greener on the other side. Belgrade may have the bars and nightlife to attract young people, but it's a much more expensive city overall than regional towns in Serbia. Not everyone will get a top paying job to afford the increased cost of living, either. A shame that this co-op is now in ruins. Tfs!

    Hello Gert,

    The framing and composition are VERY decent although the weather may not have been conducive. The diagonal row of trinket stalls add strong lead in lines and perspective. Good colour and diffused light. The skin tones look perfect. Not always easy to transfer from a slide. Tfs!

    Hello Pierre,
    One of the largest and most important buildings in Rome where I haven't been inside. The photo is taken from a good angle where we get a fine panoramic view. It's interesting to notice the huge number of people seen on the bridge and in the street, most of them probably tourists on their way into the museum. You might have added the simple information that this was built in the 2nd century AD as the mausoleum for the Emperor Hadrian (Hadrianus).
    Regards,
    Gert

    Hello Jorge,
    This was very difficult to understand from the thumbnail. My eyes needed some adjustment even when seeing the large version. It's a fascinating view of the black clouds looking like they're on fire. It's a beautiful and very unusual photo to say the least.

    Hello Pavle,
    It was a nice idea to show this wide view across the field with the traces of heavy machinery in the foreground. It gives us an idea of the hard work needed to provide food for everyone. The mild tones of brown, green and yellow are nice too.

    Hello Ian,
    I wonder if there is any more "1001 night-ish" city in the world than Khiva. All these domes and minarets and narrow alleys are amazing, especially seen in this light, and no ugly Soviet style buildings to spoil the view.
    You could use that "portrait" in the WS for your TE profile, in case it is technically possible to change it. It would be a bit similar to the coincidental portrait I am using.
