    I'm not sure what an LP filter does but whatever it is, it looks great. I love the sky and varied colors. Also the silhouette of the trees in the distance. At first I thought they were animals.

    Beautiful shot. I like the framing and of course the girl and her expression is what really makes the photo so appealing.

    Interesting story. The shot itself is not so interesting because it has no focal point and doesn't tell the story on its own. But I'm always happy to see photos from my old haunts.

    This is a busy photo but I like it because there is a lot to see and you could look at it 100 times and still find something new.

    Hi Kaj. It is beautiful light and a touching photo, but not up there with your best work. You are simply too far away, removing us from the scene a bit. I guess the looking down vantage point is due to the fire needing to be controlled, but the looking down, coupled with the relative lack of immediacy is not as good as what you so often shoot.

    I never saw a Greek (or Italian) statue holding skiis before. :) I like this rear perspective. A shallower DOF (to blue the background) would have been better.

    I like this... it looks like an alien planet even though it's probably just a wall. Is the orange tint natural? In any case, it works well. Good DOF and I like the diagonal angle also.

    The coloring is so blue it's unnatural but I like it. Very artistic. It makes the boat looks like it's covered in ice.

    What a great abandoned place with beautiful industrial tones and interesting details.
    I think cropping the upper and lower part out could make the image more effective - I posted a WS...
    Well captured, Giorgos - if you have some more shots taken there, please post them, too.

    Lonely tree is quite a common choice of subject but the realization still works very well. Simple, beautiful and very Italian image. I especially like the combination of brown and grey colors. Excellent work.

    Everything is just perfect here - real National Geographic stuff, I think.
    Great eye, great timing. So simple and so effective result.
    As a detail I like the triangle of light pointing the head of the woman.

    Yes, very original choice of subject. Nice earthy tones. The buildings in the background add a lot for the composition.
    Great football shot!

    Great shot. Well seen subject and well captured moment. Beautiful mix of blue, white and orange colors. I would crop a bit from the sky to make the composition more effective.

    This is a really nice composition and you were either really lucky or really perceptive to get the crow when you did. It is badly oversharpened though; so much so that it becomes hard to look at for long. A lighter hand in PP would make a world of difference to me. Nice shot.

    The diagonal/half&half composition is good however since the bricks are the most interesting part of the composition, I think a more closeup view would be better.

    I agree, this is a photogenic tree. I also like your off-centered composition. Although the blue is nice, it draws attention away from the tree's shape so I think black & white could have greater impact. You might want to consider posting larger photos. I think this size is too small.

    This is excellent Alex, I am not sure why there is such a lack of comments. Good use of lines to point is into the distance and a very nice convesion to b&w as well. I don't really have any nits to pick on this, it is really good.

    Edit: Have to say that I don't care for the watermark at all. I am sure you knew that though :)

    Hi Maciek. Good to see a post from you. I do like that you are not relying on a formula in choosing your uploads; I am sure you know this won't get hundreds of points and I like that you upload it anyways. Here, I really like the colors and lighting in general and for the most part I like the composition. For me though, there is a little too much ceiling. I am not sure how you could get around this, as less ceiling would mean cropping the fan, which is probably not great. Anyways, as it is, I just wish it was different. Good to see you posting Maciek.
