    Hello Gy顤gy,
    I don't think the administrators will object to the egret in the foreground, provided it was not a pet. You don't keep egrets as pets in Hungary, do you?
    It's really a beautiful photo of these strange "bushes" standing in the lake, their reflections, the light, the forest in the background and the egrets. The colours are very smooth and mild. This is really like a painting.
    And thank you for your kind words about my latest photo.
    Have a nice week,
    Gert

    Hej Lars,
    Jag hade d嶚igt v輐er i Prag v緳en 1983, s det s嶓 verkligen inte ut s h酺. Ganska slitet och trist, faktiskt. Men maten var god och 闤et underbart. H酺 ser jag hur vackra byggnaderna var, men jag antar att de har blivit ordentligt renoverade efter 1989. God st鄝ning, fina f酺ger och vackert ljus p fasaderna. En fin kameravinkel med husen p en diagonal och stenl輍gningen l鄚gs en kurva.
    H鄟sningar,
    Gert

    Hello John,
    The brown brick church surrounded by trees and a brick wall makes a strong impression despite the grey and cloudy day. Thanks to a perfect exposure and as always very good sharpness you managed an excellent photo with distinct colours and contrasts.

    Hello Brenda,
    I almost missed this great and interesting photo. It's a smart and fantastic installation and I agree with your choice of main photo, largely because of the person on the left.
    In Sweden there are no fees for public universities or colleges. But the students have to pay for all books and other material needed, and of course for food and lodging. Cheap loans and grants are available to all students, provided they finish their courses on time, so someone graduating after 4-5 years will usually start professional life with a substantial debt.
    Free education is taken for granted here, but would probably look like dangerous communism to many Americans.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    A very smart and original composition. I think the flash had a good effect. It's a beautiful combination of frost flowers and the blurred, distant chimney and smoke.

    Hello Paul,
    I don't think I would have mistaken this place to be an ordinary village, considering the well built roofs and the large number of kayaks along the river front, but it's a useful information anyway. The people on the river make the photo lively, there is a fine diagonal and a beautiful view of the steep mountains, everything captured with your regular well saturated colours. A fine photo in the WS too.
    Best regards,

    Hello Pavle,
    This is an original composition. The fence is almost invisible at first look, so the gate at first seems to be standing alone. You balanced and exposed the photo well and there are nice contrasts of red, green and brown.

    She is a lovely girl and she is nicely dressed. She also seems to enjoy being photographed and you found a good place for her. Unfortunately you haven't uploaded any workshop photo.

    PS Now I have seen the WS. They are also very cute and perfectly dressed for a colour photo.

    Hello Chris,
    A well composed photo with excellent, well saturated colours and fine contrasts. The lampposts frame the view of the cathedral perfectly and the city gardener placed the red flowers well. The three large squares of central Timisoara made quite an impression on me.

    Hello Bev,
    Another view from a day in winter when nature has become almost monochrome. There are traces of blue sky in the upper left corner and some brown tones can be seen among the bushes. You used the strong backlight well to capture the fine pattern created by the silhouettes of branches and the reflections in the lake.

    It's a nice and almost minimalistic composition. There are basically three features and three tones of sepia. I like the elegant simplicity and the beautiful reflections in the water.

    Hello Silvio,
    This is very similar to earlier photos from this place, but I can see there was less water this time than in the photo from 2018 you hade shown twice before. It is still a good place for photos, but maybe you should not show exactly the same view several times, when there hasn't been any great change.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Costantino,
    This quay is obviously a good place to go on a windy day to capture dramatic waves. You have done it many times before, but this wave is very nicely timed, and the photo is perfectly exposed. The characteristic building forms a good background.

    Hello Steve,
    My own experience is that it always pays to search the old archives. There will always be one, or several, photos I had overlooked. It was a good choice to post this portrait. It's well composed, looks perfectly natural and spontaneous and there is a fine contrast between her brown skin and green shawl.

    Hello Kasia,
    Somehow this photo reminds me of the one from northern Sweden, even if it's just for the reflections. The scenery as such is quite different. But sleeping in the rental car and in that awful guesthouse must have disturbed your nights equally much. Maybe it's even the blue and yellow that makes me think of Sweden. It's a beautiful photo in any case, and the light on the yellow trees is fantastic. The sunrise reflections are just as great, although less colourful, and in the evening the lake has a marvellous blue tone.
    Best wishes,
    Gert

    Hello Luis,
    The wrought iron door is beautiful. The probably wouldn't make any like this today. The photo profits from the partly blue, partly beige background to the black details, as well as the dark arch framing this view. This makes the photo graphically nice and very eye-catching.

    Hello John,
    I discovered by coincidence that I had missed this photo. The lines of dark and heavily cropped trees create a strange and rather fascinating foreground, and even more so because of the contrast between this shady area and the sun shining on the roofs of the old buildings. The trees look like sculptures by an eccentric artist.
    Best regards,
    Gert
