    Hi Ike, you captured this heavy lifter with the flaps still a bit extended and the landing gear doors open, very interesting. The exposure is very well controlled and I dig the plain/sky colour coordination too. Great work ! Best regards from Rotterdam, Bert.

    Ola Alexandre. What a striking and richly detailed capture this is. The light is beautiful and the shallow DoF isolates the bird rather nicely (it neutralizes the busy filiage in the BG and replaces it with a fine bokeh). Parabéns ! Best regards from Rotterdão.

    Ola Andre. This conservatory seems to share many traits with the former Crystal Palace in London. The symmertrical/ central composition was the way to go here and the exposure is spot on. I appreciate the people (and their relative placement)in the frame - they add a lively ánd nicely rhythmic accent. Parabéns! Bert.

    Hi Pavle ! That's a beautiful take on this old eastern-orthodox church. Your chosen angle of taking ánd the light on the facades, bring out the architectutal spendour. Best regards from Rotterdam.

    How can I forget the port of Volos, Constantino, with the people on the quay, buying fsh from the recently arrived fishing boats and of course the tough tugs that are anchored there.I enjoy the angle and the almost square framing here! Very well seen ! Best regards from Rotterdam, Bert

    Hi Ali! It must have been a very impressive experience indeed to travel on this curvy mountainroad. Your pic effortlessly conveys that feeling. The pano format was of course the way to go here. Best regards from Rotterdam, Bert.

    Hoi Rob, Het contrast tussen de in steen en verf vastgelegde devotie en de beslommeringen van het dagelijkse leven van de drie toeristen máakt deze plaat. Je langwerpige verticale frame werkt hier primr. Zeer goed gezien! Groeten uit Rotterdam, Bert.

    Bonjour Marie Louise. Ah Firenze, I have to get back there! I really like the way you framed this one- the facade on the left of the frame nicely guides the eye to the 'pièce de resistance'of the town - the marvelous Brunelleschi cuppola of the Duomo - with the omnipresent tourists on them. Great and richly detailed work! Best regards from Rotterdam, Bert

    Hi Malgo, You contextualized the portrait of this man very well. His expression might have to do with his inner musings or that he's not entirely pleased being photographed.His tradional garb contrast nicely with his modern sneakers.
    The way you let the main perspective pass him by is nicely evocative. Very fine ethnographic work. Best regards from Rotterdam, Bert.

    Bonjour Philippe. You used the swervings forms and bright colours of this water slide to great adventage here. Together with those of (and in) the water, this pic can also be seen as a semi-abstract colour spot compostion. Very well seen and processed! Best regards from Rotterdam, Bert

    Good morning Sven-Erich ! I's always nice to see a Ro80. It's exterior design was fab but that indeed wasn't the case with the somewhat flawed rotary engine ;-)You present the car very well, with enough contsxt to place the image and make it attractive in the graphic scheme of things (I really dig the colour scheme of your composition). Best regards from Rotterdam.

    Hi Luciano, Your notes adds a nice narrative layers to this pic (there might be some urgancy in the body language of the man entering the bar). And yes, it surely is a not often mentionend, but vital function of bars ans cafés ! ;-) Very well seen & presented. Best regards from Rotterdam.

    Hi Adrtian. The borders of the day alway open up rich visual possibillities. And you used it to great adventage here. The layer of warm colour gradients forms a striking contrast with the dark mountain hues. And the low cloud bank and snowed peaks do the same. A great composition and study in layers! Best regards from Rotterdam, Bert.

    Hi Ike, A striking and evocative juxtaposition: high densitiy living ánd transport. The nature of the cargo is intriguing indeed. The central composition was the way to ge here and the exposure is spot on - you kept the highlites on the fuselage in tact. I like it a lot. Best regards from Rotterdam.

    Hi Gert. This dirt road guides the eye to these striking artefacts of the very dramatic Armenian history. It's well composed and the rich details are vital for the story telling. And last but not least: it's great scan. Best regards from Rotterdam, Bert.

    Hoi John, Een fraai en poëtische renditie van deze stokoude bomen, compleet met hun reflecties. De mist voegt veel sfeer toe en de weg en de boerderij zijn elangrijk voor de context. Heel fijn werk weer, John! Groeten uit een momenteel ook wat mistig Rotterdam.

    Hej Lars, Je bent aan een fraaie serie bezig ! Zo ingezoomd is het op te vatten als een bijna geheel abstract, ritmisch grafisme. Het is en fascinerende studie van natuurlijke texturen en de ontwikkeling daarvan. Zeer aansprekend werk! Groeten uit Rotterdam, Bert
