    Hello Brenda,
    There is a slight touch of the Soviet Union or China in this building. It's so huge and tall and official. The main difference is that there is just a subway station built into it, while in those countries similar buildings probably have nuclear proof shelters deep down below. Considering the difficulties you describe you did a very good job to capture such a clear view. You managed to have the tree complementing the composition rather than obstructing the view. And you also had enough space to include the street life, which in my eyes was a great bonus to the photo.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Malgo,
    It's not only links that can't be made. It seems italics and bold letters are also no longer possible. I don't even want to think of what next may break down. Posting photos? Writing critiques?
    It's a nice mural, which can also be seen in the wider view. Looking carefully I see that a small real altar with an incense burner is placed inside the painted altar. That's a nice detail.
    Best regards,

    Hello John,
    "Don't bother", "Food was disgusting" was what I found when I searched for an explanation of the name of this restaurant. Hygiene seems to have been good though, and I like the photo, not mainly because a nice lady entered into it, but because it's a sharp and well exposed photo with a lovely light and colours. And the building really is beautiful, so it's a great shame that the chef soils a proud name. ;-)
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Gerrit,
    Your country house is located in a fine place . But your main home is in a fine city scenery , too. Very nice view from your window.
    I have the chance to have some pleasant places not far from my home, too.

    Hello Sergio,
    A very good photo with many interesting buildings of different styles. It's amazing how some of the modern tall buildings fit the traditional Dutch style so well, especially of course the two towers to the right with the leaning roofs. They are a superb example of smart city renewal. But I find every part of this photo interesting, and the cloudy sky seems to have created a pleasant light that produced very harmonious colours. I appreciate the neatly cropped composition.
    Best regards,
    Gert

    Hello Miguel,
    A lively picture with lots of people and lots of colours. The many stalls create fine depth. I could watch this for a long time to find ever new details. The exposure is good despite the limited sources of light.

    Hi Stephen
    I thought perhaps this is a TILT SHIFT photo...not sure.
    It would help to see the church in its Entirety in a WS photo, to give us a sense of its size and structure. its hard to put it all together...anyways, its a different shot from the normal we see on TE and that's always a good thing. Keep them coming, great seeing such places. cheers

    Hi Ike
    I wonder if he was playing with the flower, its amusing how these birds can be so domesticated. Interesting to hear you describe it as an invasive species...I didn't know that. Fine shot with the blue bg for color contrast, and that red splash works so well too. Nice one. cheers

    Hi Kari
    when visiting this country, you're bound to return home with a few bird photos - or at least I think you would. and yes its my first time seeing this one, not having any here in Canada.
    pretty pale blue feathers, and its a nice shot with it burried inside all the green leaves, protected from the sun. Good one. Stay safe! cheers

    Hi Murat
    yes, this is pretty much a common scene now adays isn't it, but in the near future all things will return to normal. Its only going to be a number of months, then its back to the hustle and bustle. I wonder if this movie theatre lights up a night, I bet it does, it has an Art Deco kind of look to it...i enjoy it. good one. cheers

    Hello Jorge,
    I have to admit that I am happy you have stepped outside. I really like photos of city life, wide views and colours better than architectural details inside dark rooms. This is lively and interesting. I am sure it would be considerably less lively today, but the interesting details would still be there. The colours and clarity are beautiful.

    Hello Krzysztof,
    Obviously the President was not at home that day. I am sure he was busy campaigning for the elections. I wonder who will win?
    It's a nice photo with lots of interesting details and well managed light.

    Hello Philippe,
    There is an interesting note to accompany this beautiful view of the sun setting (or maybe rising?) on the calm water. You handled the light and colours very well. The dangerous plant is the main focus of the composition.

    Hello Ike,
    You managed another fine shot on one of your photo hunts close to home. The parrot is seated perfectly and there was nothing to disturb the view. The contrast of green and red against the blue background makes the photo very eye-catching. There are no parrots where I live, but I am happy to listen to the blackbird singing from a tree outside my apartment every evening and night.
    Kind regards,
