    Hello Luis,
    The red ribbons along the faade make this building very special. I am also amazed by the blue "windows" at the top. I was unsure whether these are reflections of the sky, but I tend to believe we are just seeing the sky through empty vaults. They are anyway very eye-catching, almost taking the attention from the marvellous decorations of stone. The small inclusion of a tree in the bottom corner may be unintentional, or impossible to avoid, but I really like this element of a third bright colour. The exposure of the photo is perfect, and the clarity and contrasts are impressive.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Chris,
    It's a nice bridge, and a nice cobbled path leading up to it, but surely this photo is mainly about the fantastic reflections in the pool. It was a perfectly adequate idea to place the bridge near the top and dedicate most of the photo to the surface of the water.

    Hello Stephen,
    Fish markets are interesting places and this one adds modern design and probably hygienic rules ordered by the EU. The light is well handled and there is a fine depth. I like the inclusion of the woman and the little boy.

    Hello Krzysztof,
    This is a very nice composition. We don't see so much of the building but I get an impression that there are several attractive details that will look even better after renovation. The gate needs to be repaired and the hedge needs to be tended, but they create a charming image. The bike (yours, I suppose) picks up the colours of the brick wall and the building, and I like the inclusion of the curve of the simple road. The colours and clarity are very good.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Christiane,
    A very beautiful view with perfect sharpness and lovely colours. The photo is well composed with a strong diagonal accent (even the clouds are lined up diagonally) and a nicely placed lighthouse. The red poppies create a perfect foreground. The sharpness is impressive.

    Hello Costantino,
    A very nice view of the neatly painted entrance to this house in a traditional style. The tree with red flowers adorns the street beautifully. I like the mild light, probably from the early evening.

    Hello Jorge,
    It's an original photo accompanied by some original information in the note. The strangely illuminated "portrait" of the crazy king creates an eerie atmosphere. You framed it well with the old vault.

    Hello Piotr,
    You captured well the graphic beauty of this building. The several floors of striped arches and the staircases create a very elegant pattern. The painting in the middle provides a fine detail. The well managed light and fine contrasts underscore the beauty of the architecture.

    Hello Paul,
    It's the ladies' expressions that make this photo amusing, but the display of the various delicacies for sale, and the many bright colours make it even more appetizing. The smoke rising from the barbecue makes it tempting to go closer for a better look. But instead you decided to escape to the empty street where the brightness of the wall painting could hurt anyone's eyes.

    Hello Malgo,
    So now you are a national celebrity. You received your 15 minutes of fame! ;-) I never thought a crowd of seniors could create such a colourful scene. I get an impression that as usual the women were the most active. Or maybe it was just more fun to take pictures of these ladies who had put on the brightest clothes they could find in their wardrobes. Both pictures are fun to watch.

    Hello Lars,
    Isn't it great to discover that energetic atmosphere, that "renaissance", in a city you thought was doomed and dying, just because everyone said so? I have experienced that a couple of times in cities I thought would be terrible places, and instead found a vibrant, optimistic atmosphere. And some very interesting photo opportunities. These buildings are quite fantastic, or maybe it's the evening light that makes them look so marvellous. In any case it's a stunning photo of interesting shapes and and a fantastic clarity.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Gyrgy,
    This doesn't really look like a photo at all, but like an etching from quite a long time ago. The mountains, and the sky, definitely seem to belong to a fantasy world, not eastern Slovakia. It's quite original and brilliantly done. The WS made me suspicious. Gyrgy drinking tea? Hmm. I had never heard of Tatra Tea, but I was very suspicious. And I was right!
    Best wishes,

    Hello Alexandre,
    You captured a marvellous light at this sunset. The silhouette of the tree creates a good atmosphere and the reflections in the pool are amazing. I get the impression of a pleasantly warm evening, but since this is Brazilian winter I have no idea what the temperature could have been. It looks very nice in any case, and the photo has a great clarity.

    Hello Danos,
    Wow! You captured some amazing colours and light that evening. This sunset looks almost unreal, so you were lucky to manage a photo with such good exposure. The clouds with golden linings are perfectly placed above the dark hills, with a gap between them enough to show the dark red sun. The rays above the clouds remind me of religious paintings from long ago. A fantastic photo.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
