    Hello Chris,
    I saw many buildings of this style in Bucharest from about the same time, when the city became known as the Paris of eastern Europe. It's an elegant building and the light is falling nicely on the upper floors. There are enough people (and recycling containers) to make the view lively.
    Regards,

    Hello Malgo,
    Very similar to that other photo, the main difference that these persons are facing the lake but on the other hand being much brighter than those children. But here we also have a small girl to the right who I didn't see at first. She, the other two and the fantastic monastery form a triangle of superb focal-points. The light towards sunset is beautiful, but it looks like the light may be even stronger in the WS. I checked a town in Sweden at roughly the same latitude and found that on the same day the sun set at 11:36 and rose at 01:49.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Jorge,
    There is never time to see everything, but your quick visit here at least allowed you this good photo. It's very well composed with the skyscraper reaching for the lightly cloudy sky surrounded by trees on nearly all sides. The nearest building indicates some interesting modern architecture. Sharpness and exposure are perfect.

    Hello Piotr,
    This is a part of Helsinki I didn't see, but you had a good view from the observation terrace. Obviously you didn't have a clear blue sky every day of your journey, but the fog created an interesting atmosphere. You managed good colours and clarity in spite of the bad light.

    Hello Luis,
    It's good to see you back. Having any kind of problem with the internet connection seems to be one of the worst things that can happen to you in today's society. We are totally lost without it.
    As for this cathedral it is stunningly magnificent, and the photo is excellently taken. The light and contrasts are superb and I appreciate the 3D effect you achieved. Like many other buildings of this kind in Europe it was obviously built and rebuilt and having parts added to it so many times that it covers all architectural styles from Gothic to Baroque.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Costantino,
    This tourist yacht looks very modern and comfortable and it makes a magnificent impression on this not so wide river, compared with the small boats beside it. It's a well exposed photo with fine tones of blue and very nicely shaped clouds.

    Hello John,
    It's a mill with an interesting history, actually looking quite modern now to my ignorant eyes. The wings are nicely seen against a clear blue sky, with a few light clouds scattered around it. Again a perfectly sharp and well exposed photo.

    Hello Craig,
    An alternative title could have been something along "How much corruption is needed?" or "How much maffia money can they load?". Although Malta is an EU member and should have similar economic laws as for instance the Scandinavian countries or the Netherlands, control of money from highly dubious sources seems almost non-existent. On-line gambling companies attracting Swedish customers are all registered in Malta.
    Apart from the disgust I feel when i see how money can be wasted it's an amazing photo, well taken and almost funny. :-)
    Best wishes,
    Gert

    Hello György,
    I can't help but thinking of this photo when I look at this. I imagine there was some noise from the traffic here, so he must be a hard sleeper. You were definitely lucky to find him with that fantastic background. That superb combination makes up entirely for any lack of perfection regarding the composition. And you were not in too much hurry to get the settings right.

    Hello Miguel,
    "800 cars or more" sounds just terrifying to me. Obviously you had chosen a time of the day, or the year, when the parking lot was not full. It looks like a very pristine and beautiful beach with less than an handful of persons minding the colourful boats. There is a very nice view along the splashing waves up to the small chapel and the green hill. The colours are very natural and attractive.
    Best regards,
    Gert

    Hello Jean,
    It struck me immediately that this rock looks like a head. I would have seen it even if the title hadn't lead my imagination in that direction. And what a view it has! It's a wonderful beach and some buildings have a fantastic location on top of the green hill. Did you "discover" this head, or is it a well known landmark? Is it created by nature alone or did a sculptor improve it? Seeing the WS it looks as some of these rocks are at least partly man-made.
    Best regards,
    Gert

    Hello Nicolas,
    A very attractive almost monochrome composition. It is fascinating to see the water splashing so furiously, and it is confined to a small area with a nice shape which is placed on a diagonal. That make the composition even better.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
