    Hello David,
    I think the boats, the stairs and the wooden platform with the tree on the left are real while everything about the buildings are reflections.
    But we do have to look very carefully.
    A photo with a beautiful dreamy atmosphere.
    Well composed.
    Best regards, Paul

    Hello Piotr,
    This is a statue I can't remember seeing.
    The photo is excellently balanced, has good depth and sharpness.
    Wonderful mountainous scenery in the background.

    Hello Paul,
    One more set of three well taken photos from this area which seems so strange for a Scandinavian atheist like me. The buildings are really pretty and it's amazing to see streets with no cigarette buts or empty beer cans. The note is very interesting. What a pity those beghard communities have not been preserved. It would have been interesting to compare the tidiness. ;-)
    As for the note to WS #2 there would be a lot fewer pictures on TE if nobody would post a photo similar to what someone else showed of the Westminster Abbey, Giza pyramids or the Taj Mahal several years ago.
    Best regards,
    Gert

    Hello Piotr,
    I remember this bridge and the church in Bohinj.
    Beautiful composition, good depth and sharpness.

    Hello Ian,
    At this time spring pictures are a nice surprise for Europeans.
    This is out of the question for us for a long time.
    However, the month of September has so far been very beautiful in Belgium, even better than July and August.
    Beautiful bright pictures. Very nice with the shadows of the branches and flowers in the foreground.
    Best regards, Paul

    Hello Ricardo,
    A well taken photo with an exciting atmosphere. The moon rivals the street lights for brightness. The church is nicely illuminated and the palms are clearly visible against the black sky. The old houses are really beautiful.

    Hello John,
    This is as nice as a few days ago, but I am surprised that you post almost the same photo twice. I think this was taken 1/4 second before the one you showed last Monday.

    You made the right choice for your main photo.

    Salut Pierre,
    Les belles couleurs chaudes de la façade contrastent bien avec le ciel bleu éclatant.
    Vraisemblablement, il s'agit d'un bâtiment gouvernemental étant donné les différents drapeaux.

    Hello Luis,
    This is a charming statue and it looks so real that I could almost believe it's a "living statue". Poor woman sitting like that for hours! ;-) This close view makes a much greater impression than the entire monument, although it's a good complement to see all of it in the WS. In this view the flowers are given a generous 1/3 of the size which makes the photo even more attractive.
    Best regards,
    Gert

    Hello Costantino,
    This is the kind of picture that you enjoy to take.
    A sun setting behind the mountains and several silhouettes of trees, people and mountains.
    I also like the long reflection of the sun in the glittering sea.

    Hello Costantino,
    The warm light of the evening sun illuminates the church, the passers by and the cyclist beautifully.
    We also spot a part of a bright reflection of the famous church in the water.

    Hello Beverley,
    A very nice set of three photos about the Chinese Pagoda. I think I would have chosen one of the two pictures in the WS as the main photo, but tastes differ of course.
    The surrounding nature is particularly beautiful. Are we already detecting some autumn shades there?
    Excellent brightness, sharpness and compositions.

    Hello Mariusz,
    Well, this is a very nice picture of the Polish Baltic coast.
    So you were standing op top of a dune, the Łącka Dune, and present us some other dunes including another high one.
    Wonderful with the strip of forest next to the sea.
    You actually have sand and dunes here, then forest and then the sea. I would have expected the trees to grow further from the sea and to find the sand and dunes near the water.
    Very attractive composition.
    Best regards, Paul

    Hello Luciano,
    A beautiful town in the province of Perugia that made its name on TE thanks to Silvio.
    Also in your photo taken during the day, it looks wonderful. Definitely worth a main photo too but I suspect you have quite a few others.
    The night photo is magnificent with its alternation of dark and well-lit areas and the houses and church built at different heights.
    The photo has an atmosphere of a place in a fairy tale.
    Excellently done!
    Best regards, Paul
