What can I say, I"m really enjoying this blue series! :) Another fun and creative way to showcase this particular color. The vertical composition works very well here to "stack" the boats and create a strong layered effect. Full of detail and textures, you have put together a fine collection of the every day objects. Enjoy the new day. All the best.
The Cathedral Mosque by serp2000 (37402)

I just saw a picture of this mosque as I was browsing through a guidebook the other day...hard not to notice the green coloring, yeah? :) It sure makes for an appealing subject, especially with the architectural design and many interesting details contained within. Plus, that green is always a winning color combination with blue...and would you look at that sky, a perfect match! :) I really like the reflected sunlight projected onto the exterior, giving an additional highlight to the already impressive structure. Hmmm, I wonder if I'll have a picture of my own one day soon. :)) Have a great day.
Friendly wishes from super hot Phoenix,

This one showed up on your profile page this evening, and I just couldn't pass up the many beautiful shades of color in this scene. The sky sets a calm tone over the imagery, and the artificial lights provide a strong contrast of brightness. Combined with the rustic colors and many shapes contained within the building, everything comes together for a most appealing image. Well spotted and timed to catch the transition from day to night. Have a good day ahead. All the best.

Indeed, this is some special light projecting those tones onto the landscape...it really warms up the scene to a great degree. Good thing that's only a metaphor though, you wouldn't want that kind of intense heat. :) There's a smooth flow within this composition as the shoreline leads us into the distance while the gentle waves make their way in from the opposite side of the frame, both working in perfect harmony. Bonne journee. All the best.
The Golden Dome by mcmtanyel (9993)

And bless you for presenting us with this wonderful image of the dome, a great way to present the Beatitudes! Sure, you may not have been able to obtain the perfect placement looking upwards, but this is nothing to scoff at...in fact, I love what it's done for the dimension. A solid, symmetrical composition which leaves us yearning for more...and that's the beauty that lies within. :) I see this as a fantastic mixture of shapes and pattern, with that added twist of graphism. Smooth light too, you handled it very well...this turned out superb. Enjoy the rest of the evening. Take it easy.

I like where, and how you've placed your watermark onto this image...I keep expecting it to roll forward with the turn of the wheel. :) A very pleasant scene, well composed to exude the quaint appeal of this corner of town. I particularly enjoy the warm, slightly golden reflection on the water and small portion of the bridge to highlight the bicycles. Controlled exposure throughout, sharp, and detailed from front to back. Enjoy the new day. All the best,
The "EL" trains by krzychu30 (15258)
jcpix (11018) 2014-07-22 20:13
The pictures you sent me must have been inspiration to find this one I hadn't yet commented on in your gallery here. :) An necessary, and vital part of Chicago...also a quintessential subject that depicts one of the major aspects of big city life, public transportation.
Love the black & white for this shot, feels "old timey"...which is fitting of course, as these elevated trains have been around for quite some time and are well known throughout the States...the "El" instantly brings Chicago to mind.
Great positioning for this one, leaving just enough space between the top of the train car and the platform rooftop, which creates a strong converging perspective. The diagonal arrangement also gives the visual a more dynamic appeal. Limited space to work with on the quai's, but you made work in your favor none the less. Have a good one amigo. Take it easy.
Cheers from the desert furnace,

Guten tag Wolfgang,
Aside from the sea urchin, this looks to be a wonderful bath indeed! :) If that's the worst to worry about, you're in good shape to enjoy this simple pleasure. Certainly looks like a nice place to cool down and enjoy nature...or simply wade around and look for other interesting bits of life. :) Whatever the case, I'm glad you had the chance to enjoy it. Enjoy the new day. All the best.
Closed forever... by adores (33872)

These old windows may never open again, but you've effectively given them new life through your lens, as many can enjoy the simple beauty that lies within this framework for many more years to come. This has always been one of my favorite subjects, the weathered and worn textures are a virtual gold mine for photographers. Better days have passed, however, it's created a nice opportunity to capture its spirit and character. Enjoy the new day. All the best.

No worries about response times...if anything, I'm jealous of your travels. :) Glad you found some time to stop in for a quick bit, always good to hear from you, and I hope you're having a great time. My first thought when seeing this picture was of the Old Town in Bern, I really enjoy this close grouping of rooftops. Seemingly a "no-rules" configuration, so many different angles and directions, but it all comes together neatly and well organized...just like the country in which they're located. :) Lovely light to accent the strong shapes and architectural design, and plenty of detail and textures. Travel safe, and stop in again when you can. Take good care.
