    Hello Luciano,

    Excellent portrayal of this impressive castle. The WS photos are spectacular too! When I was young (much younger!), there was a strategic computer game called the 'Stronghold' which was about medieval wars. The towers of the castle made me reminisce, my late childhood years. :)

    TFS!

    Hello Bev,
    Both of your photos are beautiful, and in this main one I can feel the strength portrayed by Lady Liberty. I hope she watches over us during this election, and we move forward in a positive way. Take care!

    Hello Benny,

    Very well-composed photograph with splendid colours. I like the contrast between the vivid colours of the roof and the deep blue of the sky.

    Hello abmdsudi,

    Excellent portrayal of this traditional taxi. Again, while the bg. is greyish, the protagonist wears white clothes and the cycle has vivid colours.

    PS: Thank you for your kind words on my latest photograph! How do you know that the sidecar on my latest photo was German? I have to admit that I don't really know these types of vehicles, but I thought it was Soviet. Are you interested in these vehicles? Please tell me if you have knowledge on them!

    Dear Beverley

    I have learnt a new English word today! Thank you! :) Speaking about the photograph, I have to say again that you live in a very appealing neighbourhood! These kind of stuffs can really have a spirit raising effect. There is a tiny village in the nearby of Miskolc, where used tires are upcycled as giant flowerpots. They are all painted with different patterns before each house. Sadly enough I haven't found my photos taken there with my mobile phone.

    Best Wishes,
    Gy.

    PS: Thank you very much for your kind words under my latest photo! :) And I have to say that I agree with you: though I'm a 'boy' I don't really like, when guns an violence are glorified. I found the exhibition and the guns exhibited there very interesting, but I didn't touch any of the items there.

    The colours are fantastic! Beautiful place, perfect for autumnal photography. The road makes for a great compositional tool.

    Hi Gyorgy
    Ah, the famous "pepesha", it was well known in Poland too.
    It's great that these events are commemorated. The WS made me really really sad.

    PS. Thanks for your last critique - yes, I must admit I often thought of the main character from Gert's book on my way to Afghanistan. Thankfully it turned out nothing like that. :-)

    Hi Ian
    It's lovely to see this oldie, to hell with the "perfect quality", one could argue this image has an impressionist feel. I think it's really nice and it's fascinating to see the kids and their clothes and their bags (I had one like this in primary school, which was only a little bit later than when this image was taken).
    I wish I had something like this from every country I have visited but, sadly, I only have holiday snaps with me posing from a couple of trips...

    Great use of differential focusing and I really like the matching colours. The WS photos show the hardship behind your walk but it's still nicer to be out than in all day.

    Great interior photograph and also a very graphic and eye-catching photo, even in thumbnail format. The light must have been quite challenging but you managed it so well.

    Hi Vincent
    Beautifully taken photo, the pointed rocks in the foreground make for a great background for the snow-capped mountains in the distance.
    Quite a story, cold, hungry and no toilet! I think the ones rescued before the nightfall really appreciated their luck. :-)

    Hi Miguel
    It's difficult to believe this is NOT Germany. :-)
    I like the way you filled the foreground with the sausages and divided the frame in such a way that the top part includes the parasol/red roof.
    You really captured the atmosphere of the festival here with the crowds visible in the background. How different it must be looking these days...

    Hi Ronny
    Very beautiful and compelling portrait, perfect timing and I also like the expression on the lady's face. Great use of depth of field to enhance the main subject.
    I read your note with great interest too. It must be wonderful to know so intimately the remote corners of that interesting country.

    Beautiful simplicity here, there is no better canvas for this kind of architectural detail than overcast sky. At first, looking at the thumbnail, I thought they were boats. It's fascinating to discover these are elements of a roof.

    Hi Abmdsudi
    Interesting slice of daily life, something I've learned about Cambodia today, even though I've never been there (but I do want to go one day!). It's a portrait with a lot of drama you present here, it must be a hard life. Shame about the traffic, it must be both destructive for this man's business and dangerous for him while he is working.
