    Hola Luis,
    Beautiful composition with the very colorful flags in the foreground and the great mountain range behind. We can see a modern mountain hut in the centre. Very nice weather day with such vibrant colors. I have yet to explore the mountains in Italy. Some of the regions are so very impressive and have unique rock formations in the world.
    Excellent work

    Bonjour Jean,
    This is a fantastic idea how to present Everglades. I have struggled with it a bit, it was obviously very impressive place but so very flat and hard to photograph well.
    Great composition with the wide reflection. Very nice natural colors.
    Excellent work

    Hi Ian,
    The abandoned store is so photogenic and you have processed the photo optimally to bring out the clouds and also the details of the damaged walls of the store.
    Fantastic final effect, great light and colors,

    Hi Costantino,
    I have never heard about this place. I heard the name of the region but I wouldn't be able to tell where it is...
    The giant tower looks so impressive here. Nice viewpoint with the bench to sit down and enjoy the sight although the view is in the other direction. Great location of the fortress next to the sea.
    Very well captured,

    Hi Bev,
    Yes I suppose death is something natural in the world. But of course we love the life so the death brings something sad with it even if it is a dead tree.
    The tree indeed looks as if it was in the spotlight.
    e have recently relatively bad weather days over here. There were few days with stunning sky and light and clarity but it was in the working week so t does not count for me at all.
    Great natural composition,

    Hi Lars,
    This is a really nice capture. Two shop windows which each reflect very different views. It seems the views are so different and windows so close that you could have photoshopped the reflections. After closer examination I see not only you in the reflection but also I understand how the to pieces of the puzzle go well together.
    The girl with red hair walking into the scene is an extra bonus. Of course pity that we cannot see her face but of course she is staring at the shop windows...

    Very well done,

    Ciao Luciano,
    Wow this is so beautiful!
    I remember seeing this butterfly but more often in photos than in real life. The design of its winds is amazing! You have captured it so close to make the effect even stronger. Perfectly sharp with the purple flower, which as you told us is the favourite color of flowers for butterflies.
    Very impressive, excellent quality work,

    Hi Kari,
    You encourage me to come back to my Irish archives. I think I may have a lot of photos from Ireland because that was roughly the time when I moved to Ireland and I got a better digital camera as well as better lenses.
    I can fully understand the conversion to black and white. In fact I considered to go to Scotland for the long weekend in two weeks but the weather is so changeable I decided to cancel.
    If you are in travel you have to take it (the photo) or leave it...
    Lovely place, very picturesque. The fisherman decorates it so nicely,

    Hi Jorge,
    I actually didn't know the name.
    I checked in the wikipedia the Latin name which you mentioned and it says:
    The greater rhea (Rhea americana) is a species of flightless bird native to eastern South America. Other names for the greater rhea include the grey, common, or American rhea; ema (Portuguese); or and (Guaran and Spanish).

    So I realized I knew it as a nandu.
    In fact I think I have seen them in the wild. When I traveled through Patagonia we have seen some of those running near the road. I didn't manage to take photos but it was amazing to see such giant wild birds in their natural habitat.

    The white bus adds here an interesting background,

    Hi Chris,
    I see so many wonderful photos from Romania recently also in your gallery, it is really encouraging to visit this country someday.
    Fantastic perspective, the pattern in the pavement is so well pronounced and also decorated with people's silhouettes and their diagonal shades.

    Bonjour Jean,
    From among all beach holiday destinations I could never understand why people love Bali. I have to go over your photos from this destination maybe I have missed something before.

    Hi Chris,
    I keep thinking about Bulgaria because it is relatively close and I have never been to the Black Sea coast. Unfortunately most of the attractive places are far away from the coast so if I take my family there, I won't be able to see too much.
    Great composition here with the impressive mountains feeling very mighty here above the snow covered village,
