Good evening Serghei,
"E," for Excellent mood captured with this sunset and fun composition that incorporates the alphabet. This would certainly be an enjoyable excercise in photography and creativity, trying to come up with pictures that utilize letters.
I love the warm and soothing tropical colors, and you did a great job keeping the globe of heat known as the sun, from being blown out...it has retained a nice shape. What I most enjoy is the silhouetted palm tree and those few people out for a late swim, taking up every last minute of available light. :) Smartly arranged and well conveyed with atmosphere. A great way to end the day, yeah? :) Have a good one amigo.
Cheers from sunny and hot Phoenix,

Now this is how you can transform the most mundane, and even unattractive, types of subjects into something of intrigue and beauty. The firey red sunset sets the scene ablaze, and the power lines in silhouette have since become a fascinating element in contrast. And I really like the highlighted yellow streak cutting across the sky for added effect. Great capture of a short time frame to work under. Enjoy the rest of the day. Take care.

I was attracted to the warm colors and tones contained within this frame. I always struggle with indoor pictures, so it's with great pleasure when I can see ones which are handled and presented so well, such as this. :) Without your notes, I would have never guessed this to be the rail station, it looks more like a high end restaurant/club from this composition. Beautiful architecture and details throughout, a nice place to wait for the next train out, yeah? :) Enjoy the rest of the day. Take care.

You started on your compositional prowess long ago, this is a wonderful converging perspective with smart use of the pink theater as a focal point that draws us far into the distance. I love how the people are dotted across, and deep into the frame, leading us down the dirt road. And to no ones surprise, they're all men. :) As we often comment on how much things might have remained the same over the many decades since, it sounds like progression has at least grasped this particular road. Quite an intersting read, as always with your notes...knowing the importance of the cinemas placement and stature in the city. Another fine documention in time. Enjoy the rest of the day. Take care.

Well, I see some pink in there...so I'm going to consider this as keeping up on the "red" theme. :)
You know, it must be calibration and computer...I've taken a close look at this picture here and on the beta site while at home this morning, and there wasn't a negligible difference. However, now that I'm at work (shhhhh) and seeing it with a different monitor, it has lost some vibrancy of color and a touch of sharpness.
Bottom line though, it's a sweet shot full of color and airy atmosphere...easy to understand the attraction, especially as a photog! :) I'd never known anything about this place before now, and thanks to the TE experience and your pictures...I'll definitely put it on the list to visit.
A fun title to associate with the visual and logistics, it's amazing the things we miss which are so very close to where we are at times. More reason to go back, right? :) A pastel rainbow of enticement and daily life, cool shot! Have a great day. Take it easy.
Cheers from Phx,

Maybe it's due to the fact of the early morning hours, and my eyes haven't quite adjusted yet, but it took me a while to figure out this shot....I love the fusion of real life and art! What a great picture that defies the common visual...a bit of trickery on the eyes. :) This trio fits almost perfectly into the scenery they're admiring, especially the lady on the right...only her red beret gives it away. You see, "red" has worked it's way in. lol
A beautiful picture with a lot going on, but one worth taking the time to analyze. Cropping out the picture frame itself might make this even more of a twister on the brain. :) A fun shot, well observed and presented. Enjoy the rest of the day. Take it easy.

Ahaha, you must be quite an imposing figure to cast a shadow that large from where you were standing. ;) Amazing how much that does take a human form, and not something I would have visualized without your note...a touch of humor is always a good thing. :) A splendid view indeed, this is quite beautiful in every aspect...and even from this distance, makes me want to dive right in to those deep turquoise waters. This is an attractive vista from on high, and I bet is just as appealing from anywhere really...you just can't go wrong wrong with a place like this! Enjoy the weekend ahead. All the ebst.

The WS picture with the lady present gives us a great idea of scale, as you mention...too bad she wasn't there for this vertical composition which emphasizes the height of the caves. I like the mysterious curiosity from the "black hole," makes me wonder what's on the other side. :) And I like the idea to include just that touch of sunlight sneaking in from the top of the frame, giving context to the illumination down below.Enjoy the rest of the day. Take good care.

A very thoughtful post, and unfortunately one that is now associated with a tragic event. A fine and honorable duty for these men, and a real pity that it would be subject to any type of atrocity. Thoughts and condolences go out to our neighbors and friends to the North. Take good care.

A beautiful field of color, I like how you arranged this composition around the strongest feature, while still allowing for plenty of background space. We can't control weather conditions, but the grey skies take nothing away from natures beauty and your nice presentation of these fields. Enjoy the new day, hopefully with sunny skies. :) Take care.
