    Hi Jean,
    before I moved to UK I lived in Dublin for 3 years. This place looks quite familiar to me...
    Nice street scene with musicians entertaining the passers by.
    In spite of a cloudy day the outcome is so colorful.
    Very nice reportage,

    Hola Luis,
    what a beautiful riverside composition!
    I would never have guessed that this is in the Madrid area since it appears so wild with no traces of civilization.
    The trees are so nicely shaped and well placed in the frame, with the trees also well filling the sky.
    Fantastic colors as well.
    Excellent quality work,

    Hi Murat,
    thank you for sharing your personal correspondence with president Trump!
    Boris Johnson was also supposed to write a letter to all households but somehow it didn't reach me yet.
    Very particular times, I see you are having a lot of fun or at least you use the situation as inspiration to create original presentations.
    What I decided to do is to try photographing the world through my window. I always thought it is boring but that is exactly where the challenge is :)
    Keep safe!

    it looks indeed like very exotic destination with very lush green vegetation. Also the warm colors make it feel very pleasant.
    Very well seen and captured,

    Hola Sergio,
    What a charming building, it would catch my attention as well! The lovely tower.
    Winter morning has always limited light and even if it is there it is often filtered through thick layer of clouds making it quite dispersed and white.
    I am actually looking forward to warmer sunny day when the light gets stronger but then again we are trapped at home now.
    Lovely reportage,

    Hi Lars,
    I am so much behind in your gallery.
    These are amazing places to visit, so photogenic and also safe. Nowadays one can have doubts about Middle East or South America but here no doubts: nice place to travel with a child as well.
    Fantastic rock formations. I love it. Presence of a car park would be normally a nuisance but here it allows to better imagine the scale and the context of the rock.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Ike,
    so we are travelling virtually also through our archives.
    I have actually spent most of winter browsing through my archival photos so I am a bit tired. Just before the lockdown I managed to get out and have two photos but now I decided to start a challenge of taking photos from home windows... I wonder how creative I will be :)
    Florence is still on my list of places to visit and it is easy to guess it won't happen this year :) so I am glad I can enjoy your reportage,

    Hi Costantino,
    very popular title nowadays.
    Great scene from Volos harbour. The weather so nice and colors eye pleasing.
    I decided to take some photos from my house windows as a challenge.

    Hi Costantino,
    what a beautiful sight here! The repeated motif of the blooming tree.
    Great light amazing day.
    It s such a relaxing and eye catching scene. Interesting to see you have a warm springtime while in Serbia there is snow.

    Bonjour Nicolas,
    very attractive modern sculpture and photographed perfectly with the context of the lake and the mountains across on the other side. Great light as well!
    The final effect is brilliant, pleasant to look at.

    Hi Ian,
    indeed I think I see it for the first time from this great angle even though I was able to recognize this place from other photos.
    Excellent capture and your whole reportage is a bit sad for me because they cancel my flights to North Croatia/Slovenia as I already mentioned.
    This is such a photogenic place, may be some other time!
    I suppose I should rather look at the bright side that I survived the pandemic so far and I can enjoy the place in your reportage,
    Excellent work,

    Czesc Piotr,
    piekny kawalek architektury. Zolty kolor swietnie pasuje do niebieskiego nieba.
    Oryginalny punkt widzenia od tylu. Chyba zbyt czesto skupiamy sie wylacznie na fasadach.
    Doskonale przemyslana kompozycja z drzewami obramowujacymi swiatynie.
    Jedno z najwiekszych miast w Polsce a widze te katedre chyba po raz pierwszy a na pewno od tej strony.
    Pozdrawiam serdecznie,

    Hi Miguel,
    what a beautiful architecture! So decorative as if taken from a fairy tale. Palm trees add even more to the exotic touch.
    Great moment of the day as well with the warm lights illuminating the colorful structure so nicely.

    Zdravo Pavle,
    neverovatno je i dalje videti znakove zime.
    U Engleskoj imamo hladno i neprijatno vreme, ali trenutno izgleda više kao proleće.
    Proveo sam toliko vremena pregledavajući iako su moje stare fotografije da sam odlučio da snimim neke nove fotografije i zaključio sam da vam je ideja o fotografisanju kroz prozor zanimljiv izazov. Prebacila sam jednu sliku sa svog prozora i biće ih još uskoro :)
    Sneg ovde daje divan ukrasni dodir.
    Volim to.

    Ciao Luciano,
    very inspiring and raising hope title.
    I wish you all the best. Italy certainly had already a big share of the deaths and it would be nice to see the virus finally disappearing.
    English people are by definition more distanced than Italians so we hope the effect will not be that dramatic but then again it is much colder up there so people keep sneezing and coughing all year round...
    Great pic. The dark night is so uniformly black but the light gets through!
    Good luck!!

    Czesc Ryszard,
    To naprawde niezwykla wyspa, pomimo ze sporomialem okazje zobaczyc to chyba jednak malo widzialem. Twoje zdjecia pokazuja mniej mi znane oblicze Cypru i zachecaja zeby kiedys po odzyskaniu wolnosci :) sie tam znowu wybrac. Zachod slonca to rodzaj wyzwania ktore wypada podjac kazdemu fotografowi, ja dosyc slabo sie czuje w tym temacie .
    Podoba mi sie oryginalne miejsce w ktorym uchwyciles slonce, ktore najwyrazniej bawi sie tutaj w chowanego.

    Hi Chris,
    fantastic composition. I like how you have used the arch of the ancient bridge to frame the elegant structure in the distance. The view in the has so much color with the yellow going well with blue.

    Hi Bev,
    I remember us standing there. I already forgot the name though, so when I first noticed the title I couldn't remember where I have heard it... Of course the picture illustrated it perfectly so I didn't have the problem of remembering the place after seeing the view.
    Very interesting foreground with the variety of rocks and amazing panoramic view behind.
    You captured a moment with good light there, I remember the clouds were passing quickly there and some of my photos had too much shade for my taste but this is brilliant.
    I suppose I can revisit as soon as we are free to move around again...

    Hi Craig,
    Being locked at home a photographer has a choice of two approaches: either browse though archives or try to take photos from the window :)
    Great capture here. The lady or gentleman in pink makes such a charming addition to the scene with the pink costume.
    The geometric construction is very photogenic!

    Since the winter was terrible here I have actually browsed through my archives for most of the season and now I decided to "go out" and decided to take a challenge of taking photos from my window. I will see what I can do :)

    Great work and interesting note. I understand you work in the healthcare. I am a scientist and I actually have worked a bit also around the Coronaviruses. Yet another point of view on the situation I suppose.

    Stay safe!
