    Hello Pierre,
    Their flights must have been exciting, because they look in a good mood and seem to have a lot to talk about. There is a nice atmosphere among them and they create a lively photo. The person to the left made a contribution of bright colours.

    Hello Ike,
    The peacock is fairly well camouflaged in this very green environment, so it could have been easy to overlook him. You were lucky to capture this show and even more lucky to see its effect on the females.

    Hello Bev,
    I had to make a net search to find out about this plant in Swedish. It seems to be quite popular in some cooking, especially for "fine dining", although I have never tried it. I guess I should. It is indicated it could also be used for medical purposes.
    But above all it looks beautiful when covering a large area like here, even more so because it was not planted here to look nice. It just is.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Ali,
    The green illumination of the mosque's dome and the reflections in the foreground make a strong impression. The tall tree also looks very good against the weak light of the early morning sky. It is a very well composed photo with a good exposure under not so easy conditions.

    It's a very elegant modern bridge with beautifully curved arches. I like this view with nicely saturated dark colours filling the foreground.

    The belfry is quite simple, which is why I like it too. There are some elegant details, also those we see in the foreground.The trees and grass complement the brown wood well.

    Hello Pavle,
    I can see there is a lot of water in the river now. You have sometimes shown us photos from hot summer periods with much less. It looks quite impressive and the photo is well balanced to make room for the fine reflections of the trees.

    Hello Murat,
    Pardoning the arch-crook Nixon was not Ford's greatest moment. Shame on him. But it's a good cartoon. Considering the WS it was important to know in which order to use the cutlery.

    Hello Kari,
    I understand this kind of photos are not so easy to take, so you did well, but I had to search the larger photo to find the blurred puck flowing in the air. ;-)
    Why don't you mention that Sweden also beat Great Britain 60 and defeated Finland 32? But I guess in the end Finland will win anyway?

    Hej Lars,
    Jag trodde att storhetsvansinnet hade frsvunnit med Ceausescu, men tydligen inte. Det blir skert en praktfull byggnad, och bilden r originell med stllningarna och den vldiga kranen, men finns det inte viktigare saker att lgga pengar p? Jag kan inte pminna mig om att ha sett den hr frut, s du r frmodligen frst p TE. Har du ingen bild med kyrkan och parlamentet tillsammans?

    Hello Chris,
    The figures of this necklace look surprisingly modern. I remember being enormously impressed by some of the jewellery found in Tutankhamun's grave, and these pieces are not far behind. Thanks to the sharpness and good contrasts this close view proves the skill of the ancient craftsmen.

    Hello Ike,
    Only the big wheels on the sides are missing to create a traditional atmosphere of the south states. But seeing the boat between the trees has a nice effect by itself. The vegetation provides a fine frame on all sides.

    Hello Ali,
    I am glad that you are also interested in people or events you observe in the street. I like this kind of photos, and I like this one of the old couple on a motorbike that also looks quite old. The persons and the bike may be old but they all seem to be in good shape. It's a well taken snapshot and you managed a good composition at a very short notice.

    Hello Pavle,
    A good lunch and a cold beer sounds like a very nice way to spend part of a sunny day. The fishing rods and the equipment to hold them are interesting photo objects even if they are not used for the moment, and the view of the river and trees is always attractive.
    Best regards,
