This is a most alluring scene from the marina in Porto do Barqueiro, the small fishing boats anchored or tied down. The colors are vibrant. Judging by the stains on the walls, the tide must vary quite a bit here.
Warm regards from the United States, Angel,

This shop presents an eye catching vision, with the sculptured motorbike (the front wheel appears to be created from bent wood, or is it molded). The colors are vivid, and the entire image is as sharp as obsidian glass.
Covent Garden Opera... by tyro (21800)

Your research paid of handsomely, allowing you to catch Fabienne Borget in an encore. It's an excellent shot, well illuminated and exceptionally sharp. It seems as if you are viewing the performance from a lower tier box in the opera house Covent Gardens. I enjoyed reading your note.
Introducing Dr Seuss Characters by mcmtanyel (16051)

Hello Murat Bey,
This is a well composed shot that captures the moment from the Dr. Seuss Landing very effectively. The rich colors and the high resolution are on display here, with a clear message that the quality of digital images really has caught up and perhaps surpassed analogue slides. Is the Nikon D7000 new in your photo arsenal, or have you had it for awhile?
X in Trade Gallery by Graal (99806)

I like the graphism in eye catching, especially the "X." It would have also been interesting, if you had made this a time exposure, keeping the escalator in perfect focus, while a few riders were seen blurred on the escalator.
Makrinitsa village view III by COSTANTINO (59299)

With the rugged stones everywhere, on the street and the walls of the houses Makrinitsa must be such a pleasure to just walk around and explore. The flowers add highlight to the gray hues of the stones. Well composed with a judicious selection of a vertical format.
Lake Komani by ChrisJ (103617)

This is just about the best example of upheaval in landmass created by plate tectonics. The striations are all parallel, and orthogonal to the slope of that hill on the left. Fabulous! I've sailed within the territorial waters of Albania, but never walked on shore.
Warm regards, Chris,
Wilderness in Finnmark by annjackman (20743)

The light is perfect on this rugged terrain, but the focal point is the red cupola. You've managed to put it at 63.8% from the left, better than the 66.6% (but not quite the 61.8% of the golden ratio. I remember when you visited the area. What a wealth of you must have in your collection.

The wisps of clouds add additional atmosphere to the expansive panorama. I've seen the magnificent Dolomites from the air, but never from ground level (in this case from high ground). Warm regards,
Astonishing New Zealand by daddo (25567)

This is a spectacular view, with Mt. Cooke on center stage, in the fall in down under New Zealand. I concur with all your observations about the wonderment one feels in driving around New Zealand, especially the South Island. During the week we were in New Zealand (Nov. 13-20, 2014) we spent 3 1/2 days on each of the two islands. We didn't get to see Mt. Cooke on the South Island, but we stayed in Queenstown and experienced that wonderment. We also like the people very much.
As I mentioned earlier, we will be visiting southeast Australia next February, albeit for a very short time. I hope that we can get together somewhere.
Have a good Sunday,
