I was just about to head out for a while when I spotted this beauty, and had to stop to admire this lovely image from Burano....I guess it's been on a few peoples brains lately. :) This is a village certainly deserving of being presented in color, and well...when there's this much blue, it will always grab my attention! :)
So many supporting details and accent colors, but best of all are the two young ladies adding that human element and interest. Glad that we could be of inspiration to post this shot. :) Hope all is going well. Take good care my dear friend.
Cheers from sunny side,

You're doing wonders for the offices of tourism in these small towns scattered along the Riviera. :) Even from this distance, I do have the perception of this being quite strong in that medieval charm which you mentioned. The wide perspective offers us a super layout of the village, and how it's set right along the mountainside. From a greater distance, it might just fade right into the natural surroundings. :) What else to say, but another beautiful and sharp presentation from the South of France. Keep 'em coming my friend! Hope all is well. Take care.
Cheers from Phoenix,

These concert shots are always so full of energy and a wonderful array of colored lights...and this falls right into that same enticing and fun visual. Understanding the difficulties of shooting under the circumstances, it's an impressive result to capture much clarity and sharpness. Must be difficult too, yeah...photograph, or stop and enjoy the music with everyone else? :) Take good care. All the best.
laundry for Mesut and Macjake by COSTANTINO (54463)

A fine, and fun dedication...to both Craig & Mesut, as well as the laundry theme. I've always enjoyed these scenes, there's just something very European about them for me...not really what I would see in my region. The air dried clothing certainly adds a burst of color against the rustic tones of this old home, and even offers a contrast of textures. Let's just hope it doesn't begin to rain now. :) Hope all is well. Take care.

Oh man, I've missed a lot of great pics again...and I have to jump on this one today, what an awesome take on the Spanish Steps. Not only is it a fresh perspective, but the timing to catch this couple embracing for a kiss is outstanding!
O.K., that's enough of the "girly" side coming from me. lol Seriously though, it's refreshing to see a new outcome from such an iconic place, and to have a fun spread of people going about their actions puts emphasis on the popularity of this locale.
Cool WS pic too, but I do prefer this as the main post...can't go wrong with either one though. :) Sweet work capturing the "action." Hope all is going well bud. Take it easy.
Cheers from down South,

An interesting series of pictures from these caves, there's quite a resemblance to Antelope Canyon here in Az. Not nearly as red in color, but the shape and form is quite similar in appearance. Another fun play of light and shade, giving a strong sense of dimension and even some distance in this particular shot. Having seen the previous pictures, I can still perceive a good sense of scale in this one. Sharp and textured, this turned out nice indeed. Hope all is going well. Take good care.

Salut Miss Cricri,
So many wonderful photos that I've missed lately, but I can't overlook this most recent one...I LOVE the graphics of this composition! What a fun play of design and pattern, something that will always catch my attention. :) I can visualize many other photo opportunities in this setting, and you have utilized the floor to the greatest advantage. Clear and sharp from front to back, this has a strong sense of distance. Smart approach and wonderful result. Hope all is going well...and warm enough for you. :) Take it easy.

I really like the simplicity of this shot, a well layed out composition which easily guides us towards the pinnacle and focal point of this frame. And great that there are a few people up top, giving a strong sense of scale to the structure and mountainside. Clear skies and plenty of natural sunlight, along with the sharp focus help us make out every detail along the way. Very well presented, a smart approach to this subject. Hope all is going well. Take care.

Hey, here it is, back in Paris! :) I love these types of pictures, seeing just a glimpse of a well known and iconic structure. And because of that, the location is instantly recognizable, but the subject is presented in a new way, keeping it interesting and outside of the "traditional." Well timed to catch this young lady making the leap onto the small barrier, it puts a sense of action into the scene, and like her friend, brings a smile of youthful vitality. A well constructed composition, leading us right down the street towards the ever present tower. Hope all is going well. Take good care.

Love this "outside looking in" appeal, almost like you're a spy. :) A strong play of light and shadow, adding to the dimesion and graphic appeal of these shapes presented. This is a fun combination of buildings, and a smart arrangement to concentrate on the foreground while leaving a hint and variety in the distance. Sharp, clear and concise...this turned out nice! Hope all is going well. Take it easy.
