    Hello Ike,
    It's a very elegantly designed airplane, and I am sure you were happy to find it here. Are the colours maybe intended as a tribute to Ukraine? Or perhaps to Sweden, which may become an allied?
    Just joking, of course.

    Hello Ali,
    It's a fine monument to the famous poet and the photo is nicely composed with the branches of trees in the upper corner. It is beautifully decorated, which is seen even better in the workshop. You could also have used that as a main photo, saying that "a small boy was paying tribute..." ;-)
    Kind regards,

    Hello Pavle,
    You seem to be doing well in spite of being alone. This "caffe latte" looks good, even though it would be too sweet for me. I sometimes mix my coffee with some cardamom or cinnamon for a change of taste.

    Hello Ricardo,
    This is an interesting experiment of colours and blur, resulting in what looks like an impressionist painting. This village was perfect for this photo. Nothing seems to have changed since late 19th century.

    This could be a place for an extreme sports competition, swimming to each nugget and climbing them. It's an interesting view although both WS give us a better idea of the area.

    Hello Luis,
    Here is a place in Spain I actually recognize. It hasn't changed much, or anything at all, since my visit in 1984. The main photo gives us a very good wide view, and the nearest persons wearing face masks are well placed to fill the entire space. WS #! may not be your technically best, but it has a great depth. The decorations of WS#2 are quite overwhelming.
    Best regards,

    Hello Loong,
    These photos represent a serious problem that needs to be highlighted, over and over. The portraits are also bright and photogenic, which serves the campaign well. You used an obvious photo opportunity well, and all three photos benefit from the diagonal accents and the fine light. In the main photo the church tower tells us about the location.

    This is in a much better shape than the walls of your last photo. This is actually a very beautiful fresco, including the fine ornaments surrounding the main painting. There are fantastic details and the light was sufficient.

    Grsmattor, gravstenar och annat ger den hr bilden fint djup. Det r inte mycket kvar av klostret, men kortvggen med runt fnster och tillhrande torn r anslende. Hr har jag inte varit, och jag tror inte ens att jag hrt talas om den hr platsen. r det kanske jaktplan frn Nato som har ver hr i himlen?

    Hello Ike,
    This is a good way of introducing us to your recent journey. Now I expect you to show us photos during the next few weeks of most of the details seen in this painting. It was a good idea to keep enough ground and air in the photo to help us understand the context of the graffiti.

    You captured this small aircraft well as we see it going down for landing. The diagonal of the wings make the composition nicely balanced, and as usual you managed good exposure and sharpness.

    Hello Chris,
    That museum had one of the most fabulous collections I have ever seen, but it wasn't very well organized. Maybe there had been improvements since my visit in 1983. This is a great piece of ancient art and for once I appreciate that there are no other tourists seen here. This sphinx doesn't need any "help" to look interesting. The nice composition and good exposure was help enough.

    Hello Ali,
    This is a nice and well exposed photo of the new residential area on the outskirts of the city. The bay of the lake provides a fine foreground and the hill creates a good balance to the photo. In the distance to the left we see the mountain still covered with snow. It's an impressive sight.

    Hello Jorge,
    You have shown us many nighttime photos from Brasilia now, but this is one of the best. It's a very attractive sculpture and it's enhanced by the illumination and the colour contrast with the palace. It's a well exposed and sharp photo.

    It's a well composed photo with the nearest wall and the trees used as perfect frames. It's also well exposed with fine colours. The church really looks a bit eclectic in a slightly undefined style.

    This is a nice view that seems to offer a choice of warm or slightly cooler water. I like the composition and the panoramic shape.

    Hello Ian,
    I usually prefer water looking like water and not like milk, but I admit you created a very nice and smooth effect here. The trees in the WS are also quite fascinating.
    Regarding Bhutan you don't have to climb any steep slopes unless you booked a trekking tour. I had made arrangements for a cultural tour and was brought everywhere by car. Everything can be arranged according to the customer's preferences.
    Best regards,
    Gert
