    Hello Malgo,
    I understand that you had a difficult choice. The three photos are all very bright snd eye-catching snd full of fine details. Maybe my favourite is the one with the balloons and the best view of the interesting architecture. Is that a building from after 2014?
    Kind regards,

    Hello Ike,
    I didn't even notice the bird on the thumbnail, but in the larger view it stands out well against the green leaves. It's quite beautiful and I would have been excited at such a sight. The main difference between the two photos is that there seems to be some junk (maybe a bottle?) floating in the water behind the bird in the WS. So you probably made the best choice,

    Hello Jean,
    As long as the sky is not completely black, clouds often create the best light and colours. This view has a pleasant softness with basically only a few nuances of grey/blue and light brown, with the white boats as eye-catching details.

    Hello Pavle,
    You took a few steps to the right to show us more of your friend's curious museum. You used elements of the interior well to frame the view. It's a very neat composition.

    Hello Ian,
    A well made stitch of the long range on a slightly cloudy day with subdued light and colours. I like the winding road cutting across the grassy area and leading my eyes up to the hills. The WS is nice too but you are right that it may be slightly over-sharpened. That's a temptation I have to resist every time.
    Best regards,

    Hello Murat,
    That looks like an interesting place with lots of fine sculptures to discover. I think the main photo makes the best combination of interesting art and pleasant environment.

    An amazing view of the small town on the plain beneath the steep mountains. The light is very good and you found a perfect point of view for the photo.

    Hello Paul,
    You placed the sun neatly behind the church tower. The effect of the halo is striking and it makes me wonder how you could handle the exposure so well. I don't see any too obvious traces of heavy post-processing, so the fine light on the church fa軋de is admirable. In fact the entire picture is well exposed. The flower pots on the white wall is a strong feature in the foreground. The WS are also good. You had to watch your step in the narrow street in #1,

    Hello Luis,
    The large fountain gets the central place here, but behind it we see a number of fine buildings whose age I could not possibly estimate because they're so different from the styles I am familiar with. I believe there is a mixture of old and quite new keeping to the same style, which has created a harmonious image. The bright light is very well exposed and the photo is neatly composed.
    Best regards,

    Hello Craig,
    This one gives me a stronger sense of vertigo than the views looking into the distance. I feel I could fall straight down here. There's a lot of fascinating patterns and shapes but really hard to estimate the dimensions. Only a couple of cars to the left give me some idea. It's a fascinating view anyhow.
    Best wishes,

    Hello David,
    The boat and its crew provide a nice view and it's interesting to see that they are all slightly elderly men. Rowing must be a great hobby which they have probably been engaged in for many years. I was a bit puzzled at first before I understood which men were handling which oars. I like the horizontal and well balanced composition and also the nice colours, but I suppose that sharpness could have been a bit better.
    Best regards,
    Gert

    Hello Jean,
    This is an interesting look at a procedure I suppose has been going on for a long time, since long before the arrival of tractors when the boats had to be hauled onto the shore by the men of the village. But doesn't the boat get damaged by being dragged across the rocks every day? Apart from the interesting work being done, the shapes and colours of the nicely layered steep rock are very attractive, as usual best seen in an enlarged view. Both WS are perfect complements.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Malgo,
    Three good photos, including the portraits in the WS. These gay parades are always very colourful and perfect for a photographer. In spite of the reactionary attitude of the Polish government and the church these events in Warsaw seem to have been held without any major obstacles. In Norway, which is a much more open society, two persons were killed and nearly 20 seriously injured in a mass shooting at a gay bar in Oslo.

    Hello Bev,
    That is quite a thriller you describe in the note. I hope the young starling was not traumatised for life by its experiences and that the mother didn't try to attack you. There are lots of seagulls in my area and they can be very aggressive if you come near a young gull walking on the ground.
    This photo is well timed and the WS are interesting complements describing the nestling's adventure.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Ali,
    The light may have been slightly hazy but that doesn't spoil the beautiful view of the valley and the distant hills and high mountains. There is a very nice scenery of green meadows and small groups of trees, contrasting nicely with the blueish distant hills covered with forests. You exposed this as well as was possible and the sharpness is perfect.

    The title of the photo is well chosen. The completely calm water had created a perfect mirror, not even disturbed by the boat. The photo is nicely taken from among the trees.

    Hello Pavle,
    The grapes look very tempting. They would be good for eating straight from the bushes or drinking them from a glass of wine in a year or two. They also look good as kind of natural art. The photos are well exposed in a bright light.

    Hello Murat,
    Love seems to have been a bit commercialized here, but the red letters provide very eye-catching photos. It's probably a better idea to hang the padlocks here than on a fragile bridge that may get so overloaded that it could collapse.
