    Hello Chris,
    Most Christmas decorations tend to be a bit kitschy, so these aren't not really any worse than most others. They're actually quite funny and they provided you with a bright photo opportunity. The house in the background may be more stylish but less spectacular.

    Hello Jorge,
    The haze made the photo conditions difficult, but we still see that a fantastic engineering work has been done here. You had a perfect vantage point for this photo, so it's a pity that the weather wasn't on your side.

    Hello Silvio,
    A fantastic view of the fertile scenery with so many trees and traces of ancient culture. The snow-covered peaks provide a beautiful background. Another perfectly exposed photo with wonderful light and colours.

    Hello Nicolas,
    A marvellous view of the fog "floating" down the tree covered hillside behind the yellow vineyard. The small hut is another fine feature. An amazing photo of bright and darker areas and perfectly exposed.

    Hej Lars,
    Det här ser lite ut som rester från en gammal gruvbrytning, men det turkosa vattnet lyser upp bilden. Följer alltså Old Faithful en tidtabell, så att man vet exakt när nästa utbrott ska komma? Väldigt praktiskt för en besökare på denna märkvärdiga plats. Jag ser fram emot fler bilder härifrån.
    Hälsningar,

    Hello Malgo,
    Their clothes are very special, so I understand that you wanted to photograph them. They are well placed in the photo and the scenery is fascinating, but the light was very difficult from this angle. I prefer WS #2, like Luciano, because the light is better and also that the "pyramid" creates a spectacular background.
    Best wishes,
    Gert

    Hello György,
    I suppose that's not his girlfriend standing inside to the left, and they are both looking in the wrong direction? Or was she looking for 20 % discounts and he hates shopping (a common thing)? Another photo which looks like nothing special but raises many questions. And while we are waiting for the answer we have lots of things to watch.
    Best wishes,

    Hello Ike,
    Why so modest? "Semi"-chaotic. ;-)
    You found an angle where those who like diagonals, triangles, rectangles and all kinds of geometrical shapes in a photo will be satisfied. It's fun to figure out what all these details mean and what belongs to which boat. It's an amusing and very different kind of composition.
    Best regards,

    Hello Dale,
    This scenery and its colours make me think of a landscape painting from the 19th century. I like the yellowish tones of the lower slopes, turning grey towards the peaks, and the clouds hanging just above the hills. It looks wild and desolate but with a certain softness, and the photos is perfectly exposed.
    Best regards,

    Hello Piotr,
    I wouldn't be surprised if this is the first photo on TE of the John Ericsson monument. Even though you placed it nicely one third from the side this could have been a boring photo, but there is something interesting going on beneath it, which makes the photo worth watching. It looks like a fairly professional photo session, so I wonder who was going to be photographed. It makes me curious, and it greatly enlivens the picture.

    Hello gerrit,
    Your bicycle tour took you through not only a lot of interesting sceneries but along many "interesting" stretches of road. This kind of nature is fascinating and it's also a well taken photo with very good colours.

    Hello Rob,
    This is getting better all the time. It looks like an installation that would widely exceed most visitors' expectations. No wonder the two men stepping out of it in the other WS were smiling so happily. I had no idea what they had seen. Now I know and I can't stop smiling. Perhaps the #3 is the most fascinating and "customer friendly" photo, but I know it would have been against your principles to use that as the main upload. ;-) But all photos are fascinating and this one is very attractive partly for the simple unpainted or light green window frames. Don't you think someone like Mondrian would have liked this view?
    Best regards,
    Gert

    Hello Meust,
    On a warm day in Turkey I would prefer a çig köfte without any meat, especially at a food stall in the street. I guess it's only a coincidence that you found this cat by the display that didn't offer any smell of raw meat. But it was a nice coincidence offering us a good view of the cute cat and the colourful photo of meat and vegetables. The composition is well balanced and perfectly sharp and well exposed.

    Hello Miguel,
    The upper and left parts are slightly overexposed, but the main part of the photo shows very nice market stalls offering fruits and vegetables. Everything is very typical, except maybe for the man at the left in a western style business dress. He really looks a bit odd in this environment. Light and colours in the central part of the photo are very good, and a slight cropping and a minor adjustment of the highlights would have been quite simple.

    Hello Denis,
    The autumn coloured vines mixed with the green grass create a very nice view beneath the dark green hills. The light clouds between the hills indicate we are at a fairly high elevation. As usual the colours are very good and the photo crisp and clear.

    Hello Piotr,
    I don't think I have seen this statue myself, but it's very nice and it seems to receive more money than the average Romanian beggar. I wonder who needs the money the most...
    Liss Eriksson lived in a very beautiful house very close to where I live. When Malgo was here we managed to get into the courtyard by coincidence because the gate had been left open. Inside we found a large garden filled with statues, large and small, made by him and his father Christian Eriksson who was also a famous sculptor. It was a great surprise to me, because it's a private garden totally unknown to most people.
    Best regards,
    Gert

    Hello Jean,
    You managed a very good composition from this rather ugly environment. The uneven line of high-rise buildings is nicely complemented by the boats and barges on the river where the neon signs are perfectly reflected in the brown water. Chongqing is a strange city, unknown to most people outside China but sometimes mentioned as the largest city in the world. In some statistics of mega cities t's not mentioned at all. It seems nobody really knows how many people live here. I thought the Chinese authorities had total control of every individual.

    Hello Ian,
    It's a good photo where you captured the animals looking carefully at you. But it's really sad to see the animals too suffering from the heat and drought. This environment looks even worse than the average traditional zoo.
