This is one of the marvellously interesting and beautiful places in India I haven't seen. That country is just too big! This architecture is fantastic, with so many fine details. But for the photo you still had good help from the two boys, who by themselves create a good balance to the glory of the palace. I love the well saturated colours too.
Russian wedding session by emka (76305)

I always wondered why no TE member asked me to marry her ;-). You are so lucky.
This is a nice photo and the pink dress certainly looks better than the same old white dress all the time. She matches the green surroundings well. In Warsaw I saw a newly wed couple stepping out of city hall (or whatever), the new wife walking with large steps ahead of her husband, very busy sending text messages or updating her Facebook status. I wonder if they are still married 5 months later. ;-)

Kazimierz was my favourite part of Krakˇw. I liked it much better than the Old Town. I don't remember these particular houses, but maybe I just didn't notice them because I was walking too close. There are many beautiful buildings in this photo and you captured many of them from a fine POV. The colours are lovely and you made a good PP.
Poverty by Gerrit (46820)

These kids are as fine as any but their obvious poverty makes me sad. I have seen thousands of African children dressed like these but I never get quite used to this kind of misery (and I hope I never will). At least I can't see any obvious signs of undernourishment, which would have been a lot worse than torn and dirty clothes.
By the way, it's a fine photo.
Garden Sculpture by daddo (23583)

It's an amusing title but it is quite well found. I have seen stranger sculptures than this, and less attractoive ones as well. It's a refreshingly spontaneous and natural photo with a lot of charm.
And thank you so much for your latest critiques on my photos.

Considering that this photo looks like it was taken 100 years ago it's no wonder there are no exif data available. The PP is on the verge of being overdone, but I admit that the sunrays and dark clouds have an ireesistible charm. The three persons are far away enough so that we can't identify their 21st century clothes.
From Shade to Light by Royaldevon (28341)

This is a very fine composition with lovely balance between the green foreground and the yellowish central area. Between those areas the large tree looks quite magnificent and the large cloud has very fine afternoon colours.

Although no people are seen here you found a quite lively foreground thanks to the tables and chairs, the lines of the steps and the tiles at the right. All these details create a fine pattern. The buildings is beautiful and is very nicely surrounded by the trees. The light was very pleasant and provided you with fine colours.
Have a nice week,
