    Hi John,
    Quite charming view of this flock of sheep being guided with modern means. Backlight gives nice contrasts on the wool. Excellent framing. I'm a bit surprised to see that the tractor is Zetor. Zetor brand was once quite common in Finland, but I don't think I've seen modern models here.

    Hi Fredrik,
    A truely beautiful landscape from far far away. It was really worth being awake in the early hours. Colour contrast between warm toned foreground and cool blue mountains. Snow line is surprisingly clear halfway up the mountain slopes.

    Hi Chris,
    Yes, magenta tone is special and highlights the city centre well. I like how the frame is split between uniform looking lower buildings in the foreground and high rise downtown background.

    Hi Luciano,
    Tha is truely original! Mirrors on bicycle wheels and that triangle is quite inventive. I wonder if the cycle is still functional. Reflections including the selfie look good and give quite a different view from the background. The WS looks stunning too.

    Wonderful shot of this decisive moment. Good framing and nice warm light tones. Also the blue flame of burning alcohol is well visible.

    Hi Christiane,
    A very fine colour combination of red leaves and green algae. Off centre framing is perfect. Line between sun and shadow makes a good diagonal across the view.

    Hej Gert,
    The head popping out of the mountain of green vegetables is certainly funny. The background face kind of doubles her looks and gives impression of how she looked younger. Fascinating scene and perfectly your style.

    Hi Jean,
    I wouldn't have guessed that you'd find such narrow alleys on the old town of Montpellier. Stylish all sand stone brown scene. Lovely soft backlight. Those signs make good extra details.

    Hi Craig,
    Careful framing is essential on this picture. Top left quarter of this ferris wheel looks quite stylish and our imagination completes the wheel. Nice colours on those gondolas, and mountain background is always a pleasure.

    Hi Chris,
    It is indeed a wonderful railway. Red houses on the valley bottom make good contrast with the green landscape. I was here five years ago in May. Spring was late and there was not much green over there that time. Motion blur is no problem on this one as the background is sharp. Using the polarizer was a risk though.

    Hi Recep,
    Quite attractive autumn themed setting. The pumpkin really seems to be melting but still has nice bright orange colour. Mossy chair makes a fun pair with the one with bare metal frame.

    Hi Serghei,
    Light creates beautiful contrasts an those rough rock cliffs. Clear green water looks lovely, but swimming between these rocks is not necessarily a good idea.

    Hi Silvio,
    Nice little church with relatively big tower. And landscape of Engadine valley is of course magnificient. Pierre already found out that this is in Celerina, but I didn't manage to open the link he provided. Here's another one: https://www.engadin.stmoritz.ch/sommer/en/sightseeing/kirche-san-gian/

    Hi JC,
    That mural fits perfectly on the windowless wall of this building. And that is just the way I like them: Colourful, humorous and somewhat surreal.

    Hi Pierre,
    What a beautiful old Cadillac! Perfectly restored and clean. And place on the lawn in the shade of a tree is perfect. I of course like the other angle on the previous version too. But this one has no distractive elements in the background.

    Lovely use of black and white on old town scene. Those couples are well placed adding life to the scene. Only street markigs reveal that the picture is from modern times.
