    Hello Costantino,
    This is a surprising jump back one year to your visit to Luxembourg. But roses look beautiful wherever they are grown. You composed this well with a large pink rose in the foreground where it catches my full attention.

    Hello Ike,
    I didn't know there was a Melbourne in Florida. I only knew the Australian one, and for all that I know they might have looked the same. This looks nice and orderly, but the immediate surroundings may produce some surprises, as shown in the WS.

    Hello David,
    I have seen a number of English pubs but this looks very different. Maybe those I frequented in the 1960's were already too trendy or posh. This looks more like somebody's very large sitting-room. The WS are interesting complements.

    Hello Silvio,
    It's a beautiful room with a very elegantly built ceiling. It looks now more like an art gallery than a part of a monastery. The plants in the pots create a nice atmosphere. There was a good light that you handled well.

    Hello Jean,
    What a perfect opportunity for colourful photos full of action. I just wonder if the swords could actually cause injuries if not handled properly. I suppose amherst.edu didn't mention that in the chivalric medieval Europe people usually suffered from terrible toothache until they died at an age of 35. ;-)
    Anyway, three good and entertaining photos.

    Hej Lars,
    S vrst litet var ju inte det hr torget, som jag ocks tyckte mycket om. Jag hade turen att liksom du ha vackert fotovder i Sibiu. Detta r en detaljrik bild med bra ljus och fina kontraster och de typiska takfnstren. Jag undrar om Securitate vervakade befolkningen frn de vindskamrarna under Ceausescutiden.

    Hello Ike,
    The coin is a good indicator of scale, so I guess you deliberately put it there yourself. The book press is quite beautiful with its rusty, or rust coloured, surface. It was an interesting object to stumble upon (not to be taken literally).

    Hello Chris,
    I hope the food was as good as the atmosphere among the lights and reflections at blue hour. There might have been a possibility of a tourist trap, but the photo is good and very well exposed.

    Hello Pierre,
    It looks like a lovely garden and the colours have scanned very well. You also kept the sharpness during processing, but I think you could have cropped some of the empty foreground.

    Hello Ali,
    This is a beautiful composition with a slightly sad atmosphere. Maybe the tree is longing for a companion. But the tree on its own is like a work of art and you enhanced this with the well captured colours and light.

    Hello Jorge,
    It's an interesting sculpture, even though I don't see any "kiss". But that's not important. I like the design of the curving metal rods and if I had this at home I would probably grow to love it.

    Hello Krzysztof,
    It's a pity that these buildings look so abandoned and neglected, especially those on the right side. They could have looked very nice, but they still provided you with a good photo opportunity. They created superb depth towards the view of the better and brighter buildings in the distance.

    Hello Jean,
    They look very cute and cuddly, but cute animal babies usually have their mothers nearby, and wild mothers tend to be dangerously protective. Maybe you were lucky to escape this nice photo opportunity unharmed.

    Hello Ian,
    I wouldn't have thought much about the bend unless you had described its odd background. It actually creates a more dynamic picture, which is also enlivened by the many cars revealing human activities. It's nice once in a while to see a place that doesn't seem like time stopped in the 1960s.

    Hello Silvio,
    This is a fascinating building. It's so empty and neglected, but the rows of plain columns create a magnificent view towards the apse, where the light is streaming through a window and we see the remains of frescos.

    Hello Pavle,
    It's a fine church but it is a bit surprising to find it here in the field, seemingly far from everything. The note explains why. The photo is elegantly composed and the colours are very good.

    I realized from your last post that the modern building with so many differently angled mirrors could provide many photo opportunities, so I'm not surprised that to find this. It's an interesting composition.

    Hello Gyrgy,
    There's a nice view of the city down there across the river, and the nearest arches provide a good place for people taking selfies or photos of their partners. It's a good composition, well balanced.

    Hello Brenda,
    Yes, both WS could have done well as main posts, but the one you chose is the most original composition. There are some interesting distortions of the mirrored figures and I also like the window frames and the diagonal shadows.

    Hello David,
    This is a good composition and it looks sooo very English. A Romanesque church with a beautiful tower, old gravestones traditionally leaning a bit here and there, and grass growing high. You placed the tower well and the light is good and well exposed in spite of the dark clouds.
