So much to love about this shot, Kasia. What impresses me most is your impeccable timing - to catch the sun at a perfect spot as the bike rides by, and from a creative vantage point. Really nicely done. The variation in warmth within the frame works to your advantage as well. Really nice!

Hello Noel! We are neighbors, I see.
Wonderful statue, and the vertical tight framing is great for it, with the angle making it appear quite monumental. There's actually almost a 3D effect for me, as if the arm is coming straight out of the monitor and reaching above my head.
Glasnevin sounds like a truly incredible place, and a dream for a cemetery junkie like me. Thanks for the shot and for the travel tip!
Montevideo 2014 nº 022 - ORLA ! by npecanhuk (70106)

Hello Neyvan - I recall this spot from my own trip to Montevideo a few years ago, and in fact I took some shots from almost that same spot, though not quite the same direction. You had I think a nicer day than I did though, as I was there in winter. Nice juxtaposition between the boats and the somewhat blocky architecture beyond. Thanks!

Hi Ann - still a few Route 66 shots showing up I see; glad I did not miss them all. Love this one - despite the crumbling building it is amazing to see how well the sign has held up! It looks new and clean, with letters that are still bright! Thanks for shining a light into this little abandoned corner...

Hello Ana! A beautiful photo from Carnival in Lazarim - hopefully soon I will post some shots from Carnival in Panama which I recently saw. Very different than what I see from your shots in Portugal. This one is great, focusing on the detail of the burning mask. Outstanding fire photography, from the flames themselves to the tiny, barely visible sparks at bottom. Thanks!
First snow of year - II by mesutilgim (89140)

Hello Mesut - here in Boston we are far removed from the first snow of the year, and are quite tired of it as we are about to break our all-time snowiest season record! So it is hard to remember when covered in the stuff that it can be quite beautiful, but you have done that here with this minimal but perfectly managed composition. The sparkle and shine you have captured off the snow is wonderful! Thanks.
An intriguing sign by janjan1897 (2301)

One could read into this composition, Jean, as the Estonian boot kicking the Russians out... but sometimes a rain spout is just a rain spout, I suppose.
Wonderful juxtaposition, and you have created a nice winter scene here - muted colors overall, making the reds and yellows of the cathedral really pop against the near monotone surroundings. Thanks!
Secret garden by PaulVDV (24431)

Took me a minute to find your secret garden, Paul, but I really like how you have presented this, looking uphill toward the houses, with only the palm in direct sunlight making the alley almost a window to another world. The street scene could be in a number of European cities, and the palm jumps out as seemingly out of place. And you caught a bird just above it too! Well captured.
