    Hello Silvio,
    Today's second butterfly on TE. This one has a fantastic pattern looking like it was designed by a modernist artist. From this angle we get a perfect view of one wing. The purple flowers provide a great contrast to the butterfly and the green background. You used the shallow depth perfectly.

    Hello Ali,
    The bridge is impressive, but the dramatic scenery means much as much for the effect of the view. Your taxi driver really did you a favour by asking if you wanted to take a picture here.

    Hello Chris,
    These heads are really beautiful, even though they may be "poor copies" of Egyptian works. Those in the WS seem slightly more mass produced, with less personal facial expressions. In both photos you handled the light well.

    Hello Ike,
    The boat is nicely framed by the palm trees on the sides as well as by the dark sky and sunny lawn. You composed the photo well and captured very attractive colours.

    Hello Krzysztof,
    A nice composition of beautiful old details. I like the shapes and rust of the lock and also how the diagonal pieces of wood contrast the vertical element on the right side. The texture of all materials has been well captured.

    Another fine view of the trees reflected in the brown river. We see again that the level of water is very high. The photo has a very fine clarity and good colours.

    Hello Ian,
    Maybe this dilapidated building shows a truer face of the Australian outback than the beautifully restored houses in your last post. It's an interesting view and a well processed photo.

    Hello Murat,
    More modest than a pyramid but still a quite large grave monument. There's an interesting contrast between the soft shapes of the grave and the zigzagging lines of the similarly colored building.

    Hello Luciano,
    These photos of butterflies never get boring, as long as they are as sharp and perfectly taken as yours. This is another great beauty found at a perfectly contrasting flower and with a good background. You also cropped the photo very neatly.

    Hello Silvio,
    There isn't much water, maybe because of the dry winter and early spring, but it looks like a very nice place anyway. The couple sitting on the rock have found a nice place for relaxing. It's a good photo with fine balance and nice exposure.

    Hello Chris,
    I imagine myself down there in the square, perhaps the finest in all of Romania, but I didn't see it from this angle. But I have fun taking photos at ground level. You had a good light that created fine shadows from the persons and trees. The roofs look great in this light too.

    Hello Pierre,
    Their flights must have been exciting, because they look in a good mood and seem to have a lot to talk about. There is a nice atmosphere among them and they create a lively photo. The person to the left made a contribution of bright colours.

    Hello Ike,
    The peacock is fairly well camouflaged in this very green environment, so it could have been easy to overlook him. You were lucky to capture this show and even more lucky to see its effect on the females.

    Hello Bev,
    I had to make a net search to find out about this plant in Swedish. It seems to be quite popular in some cooking, especially for "fine dining", although I have never tried it. I guess I should. It is indicated it could also be used for medical purposes.
    But above all it looks beautiful when covering a large area like here, even more so because it was not planted here to look nice. It just is.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Ali,
    The green illumination of the mosque's dome and the reflections in the foreground make a strong impression. The tall tree also looks very good against the weak light of the early morning sky. It is a very well composed photo with a good exposure under not so easy conditions.
