    Hej Gert,
    Tack för att du delar med dig av dina Afghanistan bilder, de är verkligen otroligt intressanta att se på! Ännu mer intressant måste det ha varit att vara här på den tiden då det inte var lika farligt som idag. Du vet att du och jag ska resa dit om det blir lugnt igen va? :) Otroligt spännande miljö på den här bilden, som tagen ur en sagobok eller en film. Mycket levande scen, det ser varmt ut, och jag kan nästan höra sorlet och känna lukterna. Fint djup i bilden dessutom. Männen som går mitt i gatan ser inte ut att ha bråttom, jobbade de inte med nåt? Eller gjorde deras kvinnor kanske det..

    Hälsningar/

    Hi Craig, Indeed, difficult to believe that in this a bit ruined house the people are still living. Anyway, they are washing laundry. But they have at least warm so they do not need to be afraid of winter. And this car is really a beauty,.

    Hi Costantino,
    Trikeri Island is new for me but it looks like a nice place to visit. This house has a hard to beat location. I can imagine how wonderful it must be to swim before breakfast every day! It looks a Little unsharp but i like the composition and the overall impression, tfs!

    Bonsoir Cricri,
    a great presentation of the amazing Piazza del Duomo di Pietrasanta. It's interesting that the Duomo itself is in the shade and its presence is quite discreet. There's a wealth of architectural and cultural details for the viewer to discover, perspective, depth and clarity make our exploration of the scene very interesting and rewarding. The colours are delightful, the sky makes an effective contrasting backdrop. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a good night,

    Hi Gyorgy
    Viewpoint is everything in this photo! It's taken from the level of the grass, with the cows looking down at the photogapher, obviously intrigued. Great idea!
    Nice colours in the sky.

    Hello Satya,
    the white architectural elements at different distances and angles create a mesmerizing effect which is enhanced by the reflections. Details and textures are very fine in spite of the harsh light reflected all over the setting. The dark colours were compromised a little. It's interesting to see how the setting is used by the people. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    a nice composed picture with a smiling woman as a mood lifter. Is she looking at a windsurfing boyfriend? The yellow buoy lifts the composition and creates depth. Harsh light but still a very good shot,well done!

    Bonjour Serge,
    this is a very attractive picture that has a lot of good qualities, I like that you chose one of the most fascinating ones as a title. The textures are superb, they add a lot of character to the old building. I like how you filled the frame with it, presenting it from an interesting angle. The colours are natural and vibrant, the tight context and its contrasting colours is very effective too. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hello Stephen,
    a very effective tight composition which creates interesting interaction of architectural patterns and colours. There's an intriguing assortment of details and the setting looks quite rich. The reflections bring in a fine colour and make the setting look ethereal. I wonder if the people who pass from there take a minute to observe all these effects. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hi Craig,
    wow.. this make me feel like an ant:)The corn-like buildings are for cars..! In Stockholm they are 5 or 6 levels:) The Trump Tower is the coolest here, it looks like..like, well i don't know but i like it a lot, really impressive! A window cleaner need probably a whole month for it, and after a month it is time to start over again:)
    Great perspective and beautiful colors!

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    a delightful daily life picture, exotic and interesting. I like very much the simple composition and the minimal reference, the sense of depth and the frame full of textures. I also like how vibrant the scene with the monks is, it has a lovely rhythm. They look like an intriguing human pattern but it's also interesting to observe them as individuals. The colour palette is warm and harmonious and the group of young monks stand out superbly. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Hi Maria,
    it was a good idea to be a early bird here, i guess that shots like this is impossible later on the afternoon. I like the contrast of the man in black and the white stripes on the street, the buildings in the background is a nice bonus. Well done!

    Hi Paul,
    your dedication to Gert made me smile, hopefully he is happy with this :D I agree with him, most street photography needs human presence to be interesting. Personally i prefer very clean shots and tight compositions with the the result of that my own shots normally only have one person visible.
    The crowd here create an claustrophobic impression. Is it holiday? Sunday? It is however a beautiful temple, taken from an excellent spot. The crowd here made this Picture really interesting:) Well done!

    Have a nice evening/

    Hello Jason,
    I sometimes think that people in red appearing while we take photos are like angels doing favours to photographers. You need to believe and to know what to do with them. This lady is wonderfully placed in your composition, besides the eye-catching colour, she's added movement and meaning, I expect she'll follow the red arrow too. The perspective, the light and the colours are very agreeable. At first I thought that the lady in the background was a little distracting but then noticed that she is probably carrying a watermelon, a link to the watermelon scene you presented recently and I found it amusing:) Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,
