    Hello Pierre,
    These casts of corpses from Pompei are very touching to watch. Basically we see a real person who died in 79AD. He seems to be asleep. The photo is well exposed and also shows us a lot of other interesting items found during excavation.

    Hello Miguel,
    This view is spectacular, and the photo as such is also very eye-catching with the strong diagonal made by the rock in the foreground and the two white diagonals created by the splashing water falling from different directions. I like the dramatic contrasts of dark and light areas and the well captured mist surrounding the waterfall. You managed the difficult exposure very well.

    Hello Gerrit,
    The young women and girls look very nice and their bright clothes also make the photo extremely eye-catching. You found a good place where you could cover a large number of participants, and you could use the fine light for a very good dof.

    Hello Mesut,
    It's a nice discreetly taken portrait. It is quite fascinating too, not because he was busy with his cell-phone, which everyone is, but because of his glasses. How on earth do they stick to his nose?

    Hello Jorge,
    This looks like what we expect to see in China. Not a skyscraper in sight. It is a surprise to learn that the boat is made of marble. I guess it needs less maintenance than an ordinary wooden boat, and will last longer. The woman seated on the side enlivens the view, and her plastic bottle of water brings us to modern times.
    Best regards,

    Hello Nicolas,
    It's an original and very eye-catching composition, quite minimalistic. The orange light from the car contrasts the white light from the lamps and the end of the tunnel. The line of lamps make a fine diagonal along the black tunnel.

    Hello Krzysztof,
    The furnishing and interior decoration is a bit overloaded for my taste, but they certainly collected a lot of objects. Some of them are interesting, even beautiful, others are just strange. You had a good source of light here and used it well. The photo is perfectly sharp and well exposed.

    Hello Pavle,
    The small airplane is a good focal-point on the orange evening sky. It is interesting to read the note. In Scandinavia there are also big problems with mosquitos in many places, where people can hardly go outside in the summer or keep their windows open. This view has beautiful colours and you timed the photo well to include the airplane.

    Hello Philippe,
    It's an enchanting view of the trees so perfectly reflected in the calm water on a sunny day. Maybe the heat was unhealthy also for these plants, but we can't observe that in this photo. We can just admire its perfect sharpness and exposure and the beauty of the view.

    Hello Ian,
    I knew Craig was going to like this, but so do I. It's sad to see a once fine building in such a bad state, but it is fascinating to see how nature always seems to be stronger than what humans built. It reminds me of some temples in Angkor, Cambodia.

    Hello Ryszard,
    I should probably recognize this clock, but I don't. You have shown us lots of views from Brussels that other photographers seem to have neglected. It's a fascinating clock, and the man on the roof is quite funny. Another well cropped and well taken photo.

    Hello Murat,
    I agree that this steep hill is fascinating, and the cars are very nicely lined up in this photo, but strictly photo wise I prefer the WS. It also shows a dramatic scenery and includes people, a stream and a natural sky. I am not too found of manipulated "unrealistic" skies.

    Hello Chris,
    I saw many buildings of this style in Bucharest from about the same time, when the city became known as the Paris of eastern Europe. It's an elegant building and the light is falling nicely on the upper floors. There are enough people (and recycling containers) to make the view lively.

    Hello Malgo,
    Very similar to that other photo, the main difference that these persons are facing the lake but on the other hand being much brighter than those children. But here we also have a small girl to the right who I didn't see at first. She, the other two and the fantastic monastery form a triangle of superb focal-points. The light towards sunset is beautiful, but it looks like the light may be even stronger in the WS. I checked a town in Sweden at roughly the same latitude and found that on the same day the sun set at 11:36 and rose at 01:49.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Gyorgy, Luckily it was not a decisive moment on the street :). I have quite a collection of pictures of people sleeping in unexpected places. mainly from China or India. Here I am surprised to see something like tuk-tuk in London. well seen, amusing picture. and the background is great too of course.

    hello jean, This rock looks like a head. Once I have read that such observation, that we see some shapes in stone, has a special name. But I forgot it :(. Wonderful beach behind it.
    I have found: Pareidolia is a type of apophenia, which is a more generalized term for seeing patterns in random data. Some common examples are seeing a likeness of Jesus in the clouds or an image of a man on the surface of the moon.

    Hello Craig, I imagine how nice was the meeting with lars and Rob, I am so envious, as you know well. Maybe one day I also come to Vancouver? Not in the near future. My dream is to go by train through the whole of Canada, but it is probably very expensive. :(. Interesting composition from Malta. These are huge toys. Splendid view of the city behind the masts.
    I saw the photos on Fb. The big event approach quickly :).
