    Hello Paul,
    As an old journalist I recognize that the headline of this post is fully anchored in the 'story'. Each photo shows areas that are either urban or rural. No grey zones in this colourful landscape. Every view is stunning and there are mainly a few small details on the ground that make this one qualify for main photo.

    Hello Ike,
    Fantastic bird, and they are so nicely lined up side by side. From your position they were well placed on diagonals and you managed a perfect exposure of their white plumage in the dark water.

    Hello Pierre,
    This modern church is quite nice. I like the original tower and the design of the windows. Lawns and trees frame the view nicely and you exposed the photo well.

    Hello Ali,
    You managed to find yet another angle for the view of the simple home and its environment. To those who live in modern cities with all conveniences it is hard to imagine life in a place like this. However, this place has a simple beauty that makes the photo appealing.

    Hello Costantino,
    This is a city I am not at all familiar with, but it looks nice enough. You captured well its location by the sea, and the church is very impressive. There seem to be some fine buildings further back too. It's a lively view with the people and the boats, and you placed a lot of fine flowers in the foreground.

    Hello Jorge,
    It was a pity to have the stairs from this angle, but we still see an amusing and nice scene of the family having fun in different ways. It's a lively and colourful glimpse of daily life.

    Hello Kari,
    Quite impressive. Anything from the Middle Ages always tickles my imagination. When such an old structure is preserved like this, it becomes really interesting. I like the inclusion of the sea in the foreground.

    Hello Krzysztof,
    It wouldn't be of any use to send these guns to Ukraine, so they are best kept in the museum. We see how the methods for killing people and destroying property has been refined over the years. As usual you managed the light well.

    Hello Ian,
    Certainly any of these would have done well as main photo. The chosen one has a slight advantage of more accentuated depth, which underscores the magnificence of the scenery. It's some relief to realize the nearest track is not to be used by cars.

    Hello Murat,
    Simon & Garfunkel's song would not have been such a great hit if it had been given the same title as this photo. It's actually a surprise to find a bridge in the background of this 'meadow'. I get an image of a surrealistic installation.

    Hello Piotr,
    There is not much left of the temple, but the three large columns are impressive and indicate what an important complex this must have been. There is a fine light shining on the foreground and the darker trees form a fine background.

    "Vivid view" is no exaggeration. We see a fantastic array of colours and small details, all perfectly reflected in the calm water. The good exposure was essential to the impact of the view.

    Hello Costantino,
    I don't know Brussels well, so the buildings could have been from anywhere. But the two cyclists on the left side and the sign offering 'Belgian frites' give the view a local accent. The entrance to the next street is very nicely decorated.

    The mountains are quite attractive and we see a lot more of them in the main photo. The WS has a slightly better light and a well placed tree close to the camera. But trees are well used as frames in the main photo too.
