Hello Rob,
The drawing, as we see it in the WS, is quite interesting even though I'm not sure how to interpret it. Nevertheless I like it much better in this photo, where we just see an uneven line and a single word, which becomes rather mysterious. Along with the oblong opening in the wall it becomes fascinatingly puzzling. The woman with the ever present mobile phone doesn't really play a part but fills the empty gap well. It's tempting to wonder if there is any symbolic connection between the phone and the line leading to the confusing scribbles above the window.
Best wishes,
Gert

Hello Craig,
I have seen more beautifully designed high-rise buildings, but the reflections are first class. The light has a wonderful fresh brightness in the morning and the water is almost completely calm, creating just very slight distortions. The joggers are nicely included but honestly I hardly noticed them at first. The central area of the picture caught all of my attention.
Best wishes,
Gert

Hello Nicolas,
You manage to cerate art out of almost nothing. Just a plank leaning into the water, but the reflections create such a fine balance and add beautiful tones of the trees we can't see.
Kind regards,
Gert

Hello Piotr,
Another breathtaking scenery with a warm light in the foreground and an attractive haze further away where the mountains get darker and look more threatening.
Kind regards,
Gert

Hello Stephen,
I wouldn't call these dolls spooky. They are rather quite amusing and certainly harmless. It's a nice photo and the reflections in the window are not really disturbing.
Best regards,
Gert

Hello Chris,
The stones of the lighthouse were recycled quite well. The fort is a very attractive building and from this angle it is surrounded by beautiful tones of blue and turquoise. The small boats provide eye-catching and colourful details.
Kind regards,
Gert

Hello Christiane,
This is a good composition with an interesting combination of "high and low". I like how the elegant church tower seems to rise from the very ordinary building. You found a good angle for this photo.
Kind regards,
Gert

Hello Krzysztof,
A fine composition where the walls of the nearest houses frame the view of the fašade perfectly. I like how the street continues straight into the steps leading up to the gate. The man with the green bag makes the view more vivid.
Kind regards,
Gert

Hello Philippe,
It's a charming and very eye-catching photo and very well taken. You could hardly have found the ladybug in a better place for a colour photo.
Kind regards,
Gert

Hello Malgo,
I certainly prefer this version to the WS. It is a wider and nicer view, not just because of the couple on the bench. It's a bit unfortunate that they are looking away from the fine church, but... The main thing is that they are included. The fantastic light has given all colours a beautiful intensity.
Kind regards,
Gert
