Hi Bev.
Meticulous well proportioned composition and a good exposure of the sky. I haven't been to Roscoff, but here it looks faintly like St-Malo, from this angle. Those rocks create a strong foreground feature in the bottom right corner. Your photo makes me think a return to Brittany is due very soon.
Regards,
Andrew

Hello Silvio.
A very good architectural shot, with lovely soft lighting and nice colour tones. I think you removed the lens distortion, which creates a pleasing view looking straight at the old church building. Nice work.
Regards,
Andrew

Hello Piotr.
Another excellent photo from your elevated position in the Tatra. Very good exposure, which is always difficult when there's a lot of snow in the composition. The two people on the chair lift make a good focal point. The scene has great depth.

Andrew

Hi Benny.
An appealing shot, closely framed and with the registration plate the only thing hinting at what it is. I'd have guessed it to be a boat. I travelled around Thailand a lot many years ago, and remember that each bus had a little 'shrine' at the front beside the driver's seat. The driver would get on, kneel down before Buddha and say a prayer or something for all on board, then proceed to drive like a maniac through the jungles.

Andrew

Hello Leszek.
A very good daily life photo, almost a group portrait really. These people look happy and healthy, and I wonder how much autonomy they have these days from the nation's central government. I found the information in the note very interesting..

Hello May.
A very effective photo which conveys a strong sense of the early hour and the atmosphere of the place and the environment. Like Gert, I was there forty years ago, in 1976. I have some old slide photos of the stupas, but I know they are not as good as this one.

Andrew

Hi Ludo.
Simple but good. Even without the bicycle it would be very atmospheric and the pattern of trees would hold our interest.Y You framed it with the pink bike in a good position. Of course, we wonder where the bike's rider is. Nice work.

Hello Denis.
A lovely photo, showing your usual meticulous composition skills. Strong diagonals, and a delightful colour to fill the bottom right corner. The pattern of roof-tops is eye-catching too, and the distant hills create a pleasing sense of distance.

Andrew

Hello Claude.
An intriguing photo, well composed. It could be two shadows cast on the wall, but I think not. Nicely done.
Regards,
Andrew

Hello Ourania.
A lovely photo taken from a very good vantage point. The framing effect and the pattern of bollards on the side of the road create a strong perspective. Here in Australia, we notice the spring coming a little earlier every year because of global warming.
