    Hello Kari,

    I came in by Viking boat from Stockholm and also left the same way to Tallinn in Estonia. So I am not familiar with the Helsinki airport. Good aerial view with superb sharpness. I didn't find Helsinki 'hellish' at all. In fact I enjoyed my time there! I had already been to 'hell' in Norway, lol. (Hellesylt). Tfs!

    Hello Jean,

    I like the intensity of the reflected blue sky in the water. Nice repetition of the mooed boats with good density levels and sharpness. Tfs!

    Hi Murat

    As the main focus here is the architecture of the Harem, rather than the miniscule cat, the image SHOULD be safe from overzealous moderators. In case you weren't aware, after Mehmet posted dozens of close up shots of stray cats in Istanbul, the rules & TOS were changed to "no wild or pet cats". The golden tones of the bg arches attracted my attention. Tfs!

    A wide decision to avoid getting get. Good motion blur of the curtain of cascading water with nice distortion. Excellent colour and sharpness. Tfs!

    Hello Paul,
    I continue in someone else's footsteps. This is quite spectacular. So much work for three days display. Is the colourful carpet protected from clumsy drunkards or thieves at night? According to the note this carpet should have been arranged last year. Did the Covid conditions allow that, or was it postponed like the Olympic Games?
    I note that since 2008 you learned to make workshops.
    Regards,
    Gert

    Hello Paul,
    I saw this among the recently commented photos, and since I hadn't seen it before I felt a need to make my own remarks that it is a spectacular photo. So many airplanes in just a few minutes, or could some perhaps have been UFO's? It's an amazing sky, but even so the razor sharp silhouettes of trees are the best features.

    Gert

    Hello Kari,
    I went to HEL once but luckily I made it safely back to ARN. HEL was actually nicer than I had expected. ;-) It's a very clear and sharp photo from a day when the weather seems to have been favourable. Lots of details can be observed with surprising sharpness.
    Best regards,

    Hello Jean,
    This is a surprising view. The lack of grey buildings near the water makes it look much less English than I would have expected. Maybe it's the "un-English" blue sky too. ;-) Both WS seem more typical, and especially #1 has a very attractive view. But the main photo's view towards trees and green hillsides is very attractive, and I like the ordinariness of the boats. No flashy, expensive yachts. It's a very pretty view and the colours are beautiful.
    Best regards,
    Gert

    This must be the one you referred to. Yes, some similarities, but somehow Burma and Sweden are totally different. ;-)

    Hello Daniel,
    A rather original photo of the small but eye-catching flat island and sailboats in the background. The two blue sections are well balanced.

    Hello Chris,
    The waves make this view quite dramatic, the fort provides an impressive background and the orange fisherman is a real eye-catcher. This photo is composed basically the same way as the last one from China, where three strong elements form a great unity. The strong colours make a strong impact.

    Hi Elaine,

    A superb dual portrait of the mother and her baby. Or possibly the grandmother? Yes, your note confirms her as the grandmother. The weathered lines in the old woman's face are well captured here. Tfs!

    Hi Daniel

    This would be a nice island to be dropped off at for a couple of hours to just swim and enjoy the solitude. The tiny yachts and bg clouds on the horizon add focal points. Tfs!

    Hi Ian

    Stay safe. The Delta variant is leaking out all over the place from Sydney. Excellent sharpness and the diagonal axis of the street adds good dynamism. The lady in red and her pram provide a strong focal point. Tfs!

    Hello Silvio,
    This could have been somewhere in northern Scandinavia. So many trees everywhere, and not even the houses would be totally out of place here. It's a beautiful view and the photo has a great clarity and perfect sharpness.

    Hi Silvio,

    This is a good photo of the beautiful mountain under a blue sky. I did wonder why it was called Disgrazia, a strange name for a mountain. But now I know the origin of the name, and I can see the glaciers from which it gets its name. They are melting away more quickly in these times of global warming.

    Hi Luis,

    A very cheerful photo with bright colours and a blue sky. The composition is excellent, with the flags on the left and the chariot sculpture and building on the right, and the jet of water in the middle. Good sharpness and exposure.

    Hi Clark,

    A classic Canadian Rockies photo. Impressive depth of field and wonderful light effects on the mountains and in the sky. I like the warm colours cast over the scene and the swirling patterns in the water. Well done!
