    Hello Pierre,
    This is a very nicely built church with an attractive design. You took the photo from a good angle where we get a fine view of the shady faade as well as the sunny side wall towards the street. The green details near the corners enhance the composition.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Ike,
    Three more photos from this spectacular show of lights and colours and acrobatics. There is a great contrast between the woman performing her amazing act and the light from the screen behind her. She has a fantastic technique, but your skill at taking such a sharp and well exposed photo is just as good.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Bev,
    I understand your delight at making this unexpected discovery. It's a fascinating little chapel, looking like out of a fairytale. It reminds me of when I took Malgo for a tour of my island and we found a gate that had been left open, just two blocks from where I live. Naturally we had to go into the courtyard and to my great surprise found a large garden full of sculptures, large and small. I found out afterwards that the very beautiful building, which I had always admired, was designed by one of our most famous architects for a friend of his who was one of our most famous sculptors. He and his son, who became an equally famous artist, spent decades putting up those sculptures all around the garden. The house is privately owned, so normally no outsiders ever get inside. We were really lucky, although one woman living there was not happy to see us. ;-)
    Have a nice Sunday,

    Hello Chris,
    The tower is well known, but this composition with the three strange sculptures seems quite original to me. They provide a very good foreground, and also nice contrasts of dark grey, white, green, red and blue. The upper half is slightly overexposed. It's not disturbing but could have been easily handled.
    Best regards,

    Hello Bev,
    I guess most people would have used the WS as the main upload. It's a really beautiful picture, but of course the one you choose is a less conventional snapshot from Knaresborough and more amusing too. Action and colourfully dressed people always attract me, and there is a good enough glimpse of the river and the famous viaduct in the background to satisfy anyone.
    Kind regards,

    A fantastic scenery of undulating hills with unusual tones of grey and brown. The low light has created a beautiful play of light and shades. It's a magnificent picture.

    A graphically wonderful composition of great simplicity and contrasts of shady and sunny parts. The silhouettes of trees and the bright snowy peaks compete for attention. They are all very attractive.

    Hello John,
    It's great fun to discover modern works of art in unexpected places in the city. Finding these statues makes a walk very interesting. I wonder what this person lying on her/his stomach is supposed to be doing. The green statue provided you with a wonderful eye-catcher in the foreground of the traditional view of the houses and canal.

    Hello Carlo,
    The deep blue sea looks inviting and the person taking a dip should be very refreshed by the probably still relatively cold water. It's an excellently structured composition with splendid colours.

    Hello Luciano,
    Maybe not so very confusing, just enough confusing to make the view interesting. The composition is nicely divided into three parts with the view of the cathedral taking the central part. The sides show the usual views of balconies and lamps on the walls of ordinary buildings. The clean white wall of the cathedral displays a serene beauty that makes a great contrast with the confusion of the side walls. You use this technique of zoomed shots very cleverly for interesting and surprising compositions.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Paul,
    I am nicely surprised to see that you hadn't exhausted your supply of Indian photos. This is another fantastic display of flowers, even though I am more fascinated by seeing them hanging around the necks of women or statues of Hindu deities. But these photos are well taken. The palace is just as impressively designed as the garden.

    Hello Philippe,
    This is a beautiful and idyllic pastoral view. The sun shines nicely on most of the meadow and in the shady area one cow is staring at you, which makes her a good focal-point. It's a nicely composed photo with excellently handled light.

    Hello Malgo,
    Today we are neighbours on the site. This is a beautiful lake, and even though the sky seems to threaten rain, the dark clouds are marvellously reflected in the turquoise water. The hills create a fine background and the line of rocks on your shore are nicely used as a lower frame.

    The church is attractive and it's beautifully placed on top of the grassy hill. The bench (?) makes a nice foreground, and from this low angle the sky provides a perfect background to the faade, The photo is well exposed and the composition is nicely balanced.

    Hello,
    The eroded grassy hills are quite nice, and there is a fine contrast between the grey sky and blue sea. Otherwise I might as well have seen the Interislander ferry as the main upload. The ferry is an eye-catching element and I can imagine all the people on board. ;-)
