    Hello Marie-Louise,
    It does seem that we both like this building. :-) It's a nice surprise to find it while walking close to Central Park. I like your close view, showing many of the beautiful details, and also showing a bit of East 58th Street on the left side. I think there is a slight tilt to the left, but that's a minor thing.

    Hello Yuval,
    The adorable cow is what pulled me into this photo. He's cute, and he seems curious about you. :-) It's interesting to see this structure that will be burned; it's very elaborate. The WS photo is also nice.

    Hello Jimmy,
    This is an atmospheric photo, and a nice scene from rural Tennessee. With a moody and cloudy sky, (which I like), the green grass and other earthy colors jump out even more. Of course the old house has a lot of character, too, and the second floor looks a bit spooky.

    Ciao Carlo,
    What beautiful colors. These flowers are perfect because they never die. :-) The market with all of the great Italian food and crafts sounds really nice, too. I like the variety of colors, and the small bees that are in the center of some of the flowers.

    Olá Luis,
    This is a great head-on view. I like how the street leads out eyes forward, over the bridge, and to the city in the distance. I was drawn to the artwork right away. Thanks for including a closer view in the WS. The lovely, blue sky makes this strong photo even more colorful.

    Hello Lars,
    This is such a simple yet strong image. The natural beauty is amazing. I like the different layers: grass, trees, mountains, clouds. The clouds are especially interesting; they look like giant cotton balls looming over the mountains. It's interesting that some trees can actually grow on top of the stony mountains, too.

    Hello Jimmy,
    This photo is very interesting, like an abstract work of art. The lighting is excellent, and so is your control of focus. From the thumbnail I couldn't tell that these were spider webs, they looked like the blooms of some odd kind of plant. We definitely need to keep our eyes open, even in our own backyards.

    Hello Costantino,
    I like street art, and this piece has a nice message. The face with closed eyes is also well-done. I also like how all of the pasted papers add even more color and interest to the scene.

    Olá Lucas,
    I always like this silky effect on moving water. Your long exposure captured it beautifully. I also like the textures of the rocks. It's a lovely, natural scene.

    Hello Zbigniew,
    I was looking through your gallery, and I found this lovely portrait. I like the zoom and tight framing. Photos with a bit of ethnic flavor are always nice, and here we have the colorful headdress and beads hanging down. This woman was obviously happy to be your subject. :-)

    Hello Gert,
    The title of this photo pulled me in. My Master's Thesis, many years ago, actually included Italian neorealist cinema, and Vittorio De Sica in particular. There's an interesting array of people on the far, left side of the frame, and that works well with the large section showing only the river and the bridge. B/W was a good choice for this scene, too.

    Great photo! This is exactly the kind of shot that I like. The reflections and colors are strong and beautiful. The car makes a wonderful palette for showing us the annual umbrellas in a new and creative way. Very nice. :-)

    Hello Malgo,
    This is a great example of street art, with strong colors. I like the surrounding details, too: the motorbike on the left, the bicycles on the right, and the different architecture. I would have definitely taken a photo of this myself. :-)

    Hello Malgo,
    There's so much to study in this photo. Of course this monument is beautiful, with rich architecture and artistic details. There are great reflections, and a bright, blue sky. Everything is very grand and magical-looking. Nice framing and lighting, too.

    The woman with the phone better watch out; it looks like that polar bear will eat her after the selfie is finished. Ha ha! ;-) This shot is funny and surreal, two qualities that I like.

    Hello Craig,
    What an interesting place. The rusty exterior does make it look abandoned, but there are lovely curtains in the windows, and, of course, someone actually going inside! Usually facades aren't made of materials that can rust, but it certainly is different, and fun to see.

    Hello John,
    I can see why this station has won so many awards. :-) I have never seen this kind of complete facade inside a station before, and the details are wonderful. I also like the graphism created by the ceiling and windows. I'm sure photographers can spend many hours taking photos here. :-)

    Great POV! Looking down there is a lot to see. The stairs are beautiful, and I also like the marble floors and the elegant sofas. It's a shame that terrorism also touched this historic place...

    This hotel is beautiful, and it looks like another palace. I like how the corners and top are illuminated. It's interesting to see so many people gathered around, and of course we see the long selfie-stick in the foreground. :-)

    Hello Craig,
    This is a creative and very well-executed scene. The colors are great, too. It's nice that you included the WS photo for more context. It's great that the faces of those three people fall right inside the rectangles, with the woman's face appearing in the empty spot.
