    Ciao Luciano,
    beautiful series of photos. I like this composition with lovely trees in foreground, I would be tempted to climb that wall to get a higher position here.
    Great weather, colors and clarity.
    This looks so eye pleasing. The two towers have a nice design.
    Excellent capture,

    Hi Bev,
    this is quite a charming decoration. It reminds me the garden of Fis2. He has an amazing collection of items like that which are all beautifully fitted with flowers etc.
    They have well used the blue color here, the colors are so pleasantly well saturated.
    Very well seen and captured,
    Have a great Sunday,

    Hi Lars,
    speaking of numbers I see you will sooner reach your 100 photos from Germany than me. Cologne is still on my list of places to visit. This cathedral is certainly the highlight of the trip. It is not easy to photograph it is so huge. The presence of people here helps us to better feel the scale.
    Great reportage,

    Czesc Krzysztof,
    to juz drugi pomnik wegierski z ktorego cos sie rozlewa na piedestal. Bardzo fajny efekt. Swietna seria ale widze ze tematu "pominki Budapestu" nie zalozyles. Pomimo ze jestesmy sasiadami to jednak mam opoznienie z aktywnoscia na TE i w najblizszym tygodniu bede tu jeszcze rzadziej.
    Super pomyslzeby pokazac mniej znane oblicze wegierskiej stolicy,

    Ciao Silvio,
    beautiful interior photography. I like the cross in the centre, isn't it called a cross of St Francesco?
    Beautiful light with the centre being warmly lit while the rest has a different color of light. The arches make a great repeated motif .
    Very attractive final effect,

    Hi Benny,
    I remember this spot. It is probably one of the most characteristic places. I love the well saturated colors, your signature. Also quite interesting effect with the perspective, the tower seems so very tall in this picture.
    It stands out from the dark blue sky.
    Beautiful final effect!
    Excellent quality work,

    Bonjour Philippe,
    this is such a beautiful little castle here.
    Lovely weather with charming clouds decorating the sky.
    The composition is of course very well thought through with the reflection adding a very important feature in the foreground, and you have nice red flowers in there as well.
    Very interesting architecture with two type of towers one thick and another slim.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Ian,
    in spite of the terrible weather conditions, you managed to make your reportage so colorful, and you turned the challenge into an opportunity here. Fantastic level of detail and so pleasantly saturated colors.
    There is so much going on here.

    Bonjour Jean,
    what a great palette of colors here! We have a variety of tones in water but also in the sky.
    The boats dot the bay nicely. Vegetation decorates the foreground.
    Beautiful place, I would like to visit it someday,

    Hi Paul,
    I have never heard about this town but browsing through your reportage from Germany I am surprised that I didn't.
    There seem to be so many interesting and photogenic spots in there.
    Charming old architecture along the river.
    Well captured, and inviting to visit this place someday,

    Czesc Piotr,
    swietny pomysl ale troche nie jestem pewien co do tych kwiatow. Szczerze mowiac nigdy nie wiem co zrobic w takiej sytuacji: trudno o taka glebie ostrosci zby kwiaty byly ostre i widok w oddali, ale jesli wybrac jedno to co: kwiaty czy tlo?
    Tutaj wybrales widok ale kwiaty troche sie rozmyly. Nie wiem jak do tego podejsc...
    Szczerze mowiac i bez tych kwiatow to bylby bardzo ladny widok i ci ludzie w dopasowanych do siebie kolorystycznie ubraniach wnosza zycie i kolor do scenki...
    Teraz po chwili namyslu zdalem sobie sprawe ze to miejsce widzialem niedawno na TE sfotografowane z gory!
    Pozdrawiam serdecznie,

    a lovely scene. Interesting contrast of the recreational park in the foreground with people relaxing, enjoying the view, and the industrial view further in the distance.

    Hi Lars,
    I remember well this place because it was a first trip which I took with my girlfriend who turned later to be my wife.
    I took a lot of photos of her with this new palace, sadly I didn't take much without her -so I cannot post it on TE.
    You had a lovely weather -the colors were well pronounced. Central symmetry works well here. It is a great place but I remember it was a lot of walking so renting a bike is a good idea.
    Very well done,

    Hi Jorge,
    tsar cannon and now tsar bell :)
    Yes the whole is the main interest and as you wrote it does look a bit as if you cut this fragment out with a photoshop.
    The weather was not great so the colors lost a bit of saturation, but I have certainly never seen a fragment of a bell like that!
    Great reportage,

    Ciao Luciano,
    great point of view allowed you to take a picture from above, the location of this windmill became more pronounced.
    I first thought for a while why they would build the windmill in such a strange location it seems the rocks are all around and even building a path there was an effort. But I guess it may have been simply due to the fact that this exposed setting simply has more wind...
    Interesting island to visit. I think I will definitely visit the region someday, especially after watching Mamma Mia :)

    Ciao Silvio,
    the structure itself which you present here is relatively simple but I see this picture is not about the building itself but about the extraordinary light conditions. The sun was setting low already and it made a lovely drawing with the shade line on the wall of the architecture. I think I would even cut closer to it, cutting away some of the shaded areas.
    Either way you caught a great moment there.
    Very well done,

    Hi Bev,
    no worries. In fact you are right, we are probably not critical enough on TE. I think I am the most critical about my own photos. Things which other people criticize are usually quite cosmetic but occasionally I spot something in a daylight which I didn't notice in the evening preparing the photo... but then it is too late.

    But having said that, don't take it as a revenge but I figured since you are more open minded you would not mind my criticism here :)

    I like this idea here and some patterns are clearly there in the field but I would say you are not high enough to show them clearly. We see some pattern in the centre left and we can guess that there are more patterns around it. The workshop photo clearer shows the central pattern.
    The second problem is the light. I think this is the reason why in the main upload you cut away the sky, and that was a good idea but whatever is left is not enough. I think on a sunny day this could be a great spot for photography, the colors would get more pronounced and the differences between the lines in the field, and then either the houses in the corner or the sky as in the workshop could get some better definition.

    We have a rainy day today and so far this season did not offer too many photo opportunities for me. May be I am too weather sensitive.
    Have a great weekend,
    M

    ciekawa seria pomnikow. Pomniki jakos nie ciesza sie powodzeniem. Ja ostatnio wkleilem tego Papieza i tak wlasnie myslalem ze nie wzbudzi emocji. No ale mysle ze to ciekawe uzupelnienie reportazu z danego miejsca -a przeciez nie zawsze da sie pokazac np pomnik w jakis super ekscytujacy sposob.
