    Hello Mike,
    It's a nice photo but you already posted it some time ago. I think you made a little mistake.

    Hello Costantino,
    Nice contrasts of red and blue and fine reflections on the wonderfully smooth surface of the water. The light was great, looking like it is still summer.

    A well cropped and perfectly sharp photo of the plane before landing. The cool blue winter sky provided a perfect background.

    Hello Bev,
    All these photos concern the silhouettes of trees just as much as the tones of the evening sky. In the main photo the clouds get equal attention with the tree, but especially the second WS is very much about the patterns created by the silhouettes of several trees. Nature helped you to three quite refined compositions.

    Hello Silvio,
    This is another very unusual church, looking more like a part of a castle, but I see traces of the Gothic style in two windows. There is a lot of shade and some strong contrasts, but you handled the exposure well, also the sharpness.

    Hello Miguel,
    You composed the photo nicely with the hedge, or maybe it's a bush, to the right and the branches to the left. The you man is well placed in the foreground and the glass buildings are nicely deigned. You had a good light and there is a fine sharpness.

    Hello Jorge,
    It's an original bell. Usually people's mistakes are not shown in public like this, but I guess they like to tell the strange story behind the crack. I think the woman is actually taking a selfie or checking up FB. Whatever she is doing she is well placed. She makes the photo more entertaining.

    Hello Pavle,
    It's a rather empty view with a lot of asfalt, but industrial zones are not usually known for scenic beauty. But it is a document of an area which means much to a lot of people. The panoramic shape is suitable and the colours are nice.

    Hello Malgo,
    I didn't see this café because we took the right way to Dunluce Castle. ;-) I am sure we would have liked to come here, if it looked as nice and well maintained 52 years ago. It's a very fine building and it's beautifully situated. The weather was fantastic, and there is even an elderly couple dressed like in summer. This is the best version of the three you selected. Just close enough to show us the details, and we still see some of the background.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Krzysztof, my neighbour again. ;-)
    It's a very dramatic and romantic statue. I wonder why a linguist is met by such gestures from the woman. The building in the background is also quite impressive. Colours and sharpness are very good.

    Hello Ian,
    I remember this small temple but probably never knew its name. The wet ground seems to have made the tiles glow in a special way (or maybe it's just PP). These days the floods seem to be the worst for many years, at least slightly further north around Hué.

    Hello Piotr,
    From the thumbnail I first wondered if you had returned to Gamla stan. The same colours and the same narrow street could be found there. Probably there are more street cafés in Corfu town, but it's strange to see them empty. But it's a fine photo anyway, and there is a nice atmosphere even without anyone drinking coffee or ouzo.

    Hello Luciano,
    Either they don't care if they spill water on the street, or they haul every pot up to the window. But how to do that without overturning other pots or damaging the plants? It's a funny photo and an original and eye-catching composition.

    Hello György,
    There are some similar cases of slightly obsessed persons building strange castles on their own, spending half of their lives on it, usually with neighbours laughing behind their backs. But compared to others this looks like a very normal house, just larger and more extravagant than the average. I am sure I could find something similar in a certain wealthy suburb of Stockholm. Some details are really beautiful, as we can also see from the WS, and from this low angle, and with the dark tones, especially of the sky, it looks very impressive.
    Best wishes,
    Gert

    Hello Kari,
    Superb colours of the sky and a nicely reflected sun. I had to check up what a great crested grebe is. It looks nice like this as a silhouette at a distance, but seen from much closer it's a very beautiful bird. I'm glad I didn't casually refer to it as a "duck". ;-)

    Hello Paul,
    This photo really surprises me. I would not possibly have thought this was Bangkok. It doesn't look very typical Thai to me. I have very possibly seen this building and bridge, very long ago, but I have no memory of it. But apart from all this it's a fine photo with a well exposed illuminated façade, nice reflections and a well placed bridge. The daylight WS gives me a much stronger hint of the location.

    Hello John,
    Every time I see a new photo from you I can't believe that it's already two days since the last one. Time flies so quickly! ;-)
    This is a very nice photo. We only catch a glimpse of the castle in the background, behind the trees, but it's obvious that this is a beautiful place to live. The sign on the tree explains why you couldn't go any closer. And that was really not needed anyway. This slightly distant view gives us such a fine look at the simple road slightly winding between the trees, the hedges on both sides and the well kept lawns. The photo has fine depth and the colours are quite strong and distinct.
    Best regards,
    Gert

    Hello Sven
    This is a nice composition with the beautiful wild flowers in the foreground and the attractive church between the trees. The title looks very strange until the note is read. What a sad and strange reason to abandon two villages. I wonder why nobody moved back after 1997. This is beautiful Hunsrück of the Heimat films, isn't it?

    Hello Christine,
    Maybe this had would have looked brighter if the flowers had been in bloom, but it's still a remarkable view of these trees "colonized" by a different kind of plant. The composition is graphically nice with the dark trunks seen against the neutral sky. You could have cropped a slice on the right side to eliminate the next tree.

    This is a very nice photo. The building is beautifully designed and the photo is well composed. You placed the bright flowers perfectly in the foreground and the persons seen mingling among the lawns create a pleasant atmosphere.
