    Hello Beverley,
    I've never heard the story of holding buttercups against the skin. However, those flowers also grow abundantly in the meadows here in Belgium.
    Three beautiful pictures with my preference going to the first one in the WS. This is because of the beautiful composition.
    Best regards, Paul

    Hello Janusz,
    The twin towers of the church rise beautifully above the houses built on the steep hill.
    We find different wonderful autumn colours in the foliage of the trees making a nice contrast with the blue of the sky.

    Hallo Lars,
    Prachtige architectuur aan alle zijden van dit grote plein.
    De meeste bezoekers zijn in het donker gekleed en vormen alzo een contrast met de lichtgekleurde gevels van de gebouwen en de St. Nicholas Kerk.
    De verschillende lijnen gevormd door de straatstenen zorgen ervoor dat de voorgrond niet saai overkomt.
    Vele groeten, Paul

    Hello Luis,
    Beautiful and typical Andalusian with the many wrought iron on the balconies and in front of the windows.
    The dark wrought iron provides nice alternations with the white facades.
    Very nice with the shadows on the pavement.

    Hello Piotr,
    Very good idea to go much higher than the Montserrat Abbey to get the best view of the rocks and the plain down below. It's even a quite spectacular view!
    From that point of view you were also able to include the abbey on the picture.
    Excellent composition and sharpness.

    Hello Janusz,
    Very inspiring presention of Cathedral Island in Wrocław!
    I like the dark tree trunk on the left and the many leaves surrounding the cathedral at all sides.
    Attractive colour contrast between the blue water & sky and the red bricks & roofs.

    Bonjour Jean,
    La Dune du Pilat devient peu ŕ peu un spectacle connu sur ce site. Elle est donc une partie de nature magnifique et exceptionnelle ŕ la côte atlantique.
    Bonne composition, profondeur et netteté!
    Les fleurs jaunes offrent un trčs beau premier plan.

    Hello Federico,
    Good very low point of view near the water surface.
    Attractive colours of the water and the sandy beach on the left.
    Very nice view with the small waves on the foreground and with the mountain rising above the forest.

    Hello Krzysztof,
    The advantage of a chair lift over a cabin lift is that you don't have to photograph through glass.
    Wonderful landscape full of a lot of different green shades.
    Excellent view to the valley below and the wooded hills on the other side.

    Wow Malgo ! This is superb !
    Actually, I've never seen a single seal in the wild.
    Here they are massively present.
    This is truly a fantastic picture with numerous seals on the sand and rocks, while still a lot of them are scattered on the wild waves.
    Can I ask a stupid question now?
    It seems as if you stood close by. Can you approach such a group of wild animals closely?
    Do you also have a picture while you're sitting in between? :)
    Best regards, Paul

    Hello Mariusz,
    A three-hour drive there and back is too much to visit this region on a day trip. It is therefore necessary to pay such an expensive accommodation there. No idea if you are staying in absolute luxury for this price. But in the end you want to be outside as much as possible for the beautiful nature.
    That brings me back to the fact that in many Asian countries you stay comfortably and eat well for a small sum which made it possible for me to travel around for months after my retirement.
    Yet I find this a very beautiful landscape with the barren mountains that descend steeply towards the blue water of the lake.
    Attractive natural colours and well composed.
    Best regards, Paul

    Hello Gert,
    I suppose it wasn't easy to choose between the two pictures which one would be the main photo.
    They both show the nice bustle of the market, in beautiful colours and with a lot of people.
    Mangos seem to be a popular fruit there.
    Beautiful play of light and shadow too on the upper part of the brick wall.
    Best regards, Paul

    Hallo Lars,
    Ha, ik heb deze foto ook ooit genomen (maar vermoedelijk hier nooit getoond)!
    Het is dan ook fantastisch om vanop de toren zowat loodrecht naar beneden te kunnen kijken naar de vele bezoekers. Ook het zicht op de prachtige gevels en de bovenzijde van de daken is zeker de moeite waard.
    Ook mooi vind ik de lange dunne lichtstraal die dan breder wordt aan de onderzijde van de foto.
    Vele groeten, Paul

    Hello Beverley,
    Also in Belgium this spring was the hottest ever and also the driest.
    Years ago, I thought I lived in a rainy country and that drought could never be a problem here. Times have changed.
    The people in the row of houses look out at a sea of yellow buttercups.
    Hopefully the bees will find their way to it.

    Hello Malgo,
    I had heard of Kakadu NP before but I didn't know about the ancient paintings on the rocks.
    They look simply amazing.
    Strange that the best known has not been shown on this site before. Australia is therefore not close to many.
    These pictures show the paintings very clear and I really like them very much.
    Also the view from the shelter gives us a good idea of the beautiful nature.
    Best regards, Paul
