You're out of control good sir, your notes make me, as the kids say, "lol" :)
If I was getting paid handsomely for my pictures, I surely wouldn't be pissing & moaning about going to work every day...in fact, I'd quite enjoy it!
What an incredibly bright and vibrant image you've turned out here, this looks extremely inviting...although my allergies might have something to say on the contrary. Solid perspective as always, and your knack for capturing such amazing light is well documented. I have to assume this particular position is the southeast you mentioned, the backless facade of the house caught my eye right away.
Looks like they do a terrific job with maintenance, the grounds are well manicured and made for photography...and that rich blue sky is the perfect backdrop. Great place for a chocolate Easter egg hunt...unlike the Valley of the Sun, they won't melt before being found. :) Have a good one. Take it easy.
Cheers from Feenix,
Glad you enjoyed the new profile pic, it's not the shampoo...just too much free time with the Photoshop program. ha

So, what gives...you had to travel to another country for a cloudy sky?? ;)
What can I say say, you were wise to take this trip with camera in tow, the high rise glass and steel has no longer eluded your lens. As Craig mentioned, I get the sensation you were giddy as a school boy having the chance to photograph something this desirable. With the nicest intention in mind...I hope you strained your neck taking these pictures. lol
A great way to kick it off with these two imposing structures...and an imagined third within the reflections. They stand tall and proud, and have been put on grand display with this solid composition. Evident that your passion for this subject shines through...even if the sun didn't. Clear, precise and a treat to see from your point of view. Much appreciation for the dedication my friend, I'm happy that you had this opportunity. Would NYC, HK, or Dubai be sensory overload now? :) Can't wait to see what's next. Have a good one. Take it easy.
Cheers from the Stars & Stripes,

In all of its simplicity, the landscape looks quite appealing. The deep greens and gentle rolling hills would certainly make for a pleasing ride around. The barren tree stands alone, but is a wonderful focal point in this composition. Without foliage, it almost looks like a reverse lightning strike. :) The sky may be cloudy, but there's a warm tone about it, placing a tender cast over the scenery. Nicely done. Enjoy the new day. All the best.

Quite an interesting result you've achieved in the sky...it look's somewhat apocalyptic, as if opening up to swallow the ship and anyone near by!? Is it really a portal to another world?? :)
I like this angle upon the ship, as it details in dimension the design and plethora of masts and lines. The people help to give a good sense of scale, and the foundation for this public display creates depth. A moody atmosphere brought about by the weather, and a fine capture to convey it. Enjoy the new day ahead. All the best.
L’église de la Madeleine by Cricri (96959)

Réveille-toi Cricri, il est l'heure de se lever et d'aller pour la journée ... au travail! Oh, attende ...ce n'est que 04h00. ;)
Est-il vraiment une église ici, ou est-ce juste une façade géant sans retour? Un angle trompeur à projeter cette perception. Une composition solide, ce point de vue particulier, il est vraiment tout à fait majestueux et long, comme si atteignant pour les cieux...ce qui est approprié, oui? lol
J'aime le ciel, les nuages ont été parfaitement peint par nature à donner l'impression de mouvement, et le ciel bleu est un contraste très contre la construction de terre. Très imposante stature, et pourtant, une attitude accueillante pour tous. Beaucoup de soleil à associer à un temps plus chaud, ahhhhh ......
Bonjour ma chere ami de loin. Tous les meilleurs voeux.
Tellement heureux que tu as passer un bon rire aujourd'hui de ma nouvelle photo de profil. :)) J'ai eu un moment de plaisir à jouer avec le programme de photo pour obtenir ce genre de résultat. Mis à part la tête rétrécie, je suis vraiment à la recherche maladroit. ha
Istanbul Symphony by mcmtanyel (8177)

Although not my preferred genre of music, I can certainly appreciate the sophisticated aspect. More than anything, I love the moment you've captured...the people clapping not only suggests motion, but a great sense of approval and enthusiasm for the nights show. The blue dress and rustic red instruments really make their presence known in this scene, but in a very agreeable fashion. Once again, a very pleasing result from a hand-held, low light shot. Enjoy the rest of the evening. Take it easy.
Someone apparently forget to tell Old Man Winter that it's now Spring, yeah? :)

The bow of the ship points the way, great use of the form to make for a strong lead in. As you mention, there are subtle variations of blue color, which accent the bright turquoise of the boat itself. This composition does make me feel as if I'm aboard for the trip...and frankly, I wish I were! :) With calm waters, there is a sensation of easy going, no rush to arrive...just sit back and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. Despite the muted light conditions, there's still plenty of bright appeal. Thanks for taking us along. Enjoy the new day. All the best.

Hello dear friend,
Welcome home, I hope you had a pleasant journey...even if it was very long. :) Hmmm, this looks familiar...oh right, the silhouette has now come to life! What can I say here to not make the obvious...I can't, it's all about the light. :)
Bathed in that rich glow of sun, this church takes on an entirely new appeal. Even for its relatively smaller size, it looks quite majestic under this moment of natures divine gloss. The tight framing accentuates every detail and strengthens the atmosphere being projected. Super shot! Now get some rest...you'll need it for your next adventure. :) Take good care. All the best.
Friendliest wishes from back in the U.S.,

You must have found the right point of view then, because I'm not seeing any wires. Certainly worth the effort to avoid, this clear look upon the city is quite pleasing. A nice mixture of rustic colors and rich tones which all come together to convey an air of tranquility over the town. Your timing was essential also, the warm light adds immensely to the overall calming effect. Crisp and clean, you've managed a lovely result. Bonne journée.

O.K., what's the deal...using the 24 hour clock in your note? This is New York, U.S....we don't utilize that method here don't you know, it's 4:30! jaja I sure hope you weren't there at 4 in the morning!? :) I guess you'd have the place all to yourself though, but that would produce a sunrise picture instead.
For whatever my opinion is worth, this is definitely the best view over Manhattan, the Top of the Rock is head and shoulders above any others.
What an amazingly colorful sky you were able to capture, almost an Armageddon type of mood coming from the deep red and yellow, slowly descending on Gotham. Love the transition from day to night, having both natural and artificial lights coming together for a symphony of big city life. Hope you didn't lose any fingers to frostbite, the winds can make it mighty cold up there. Whatever the weather was like, it was worth the trouble, because this is a beauty! Enjoy the rest of the evening. Take it easy mi amiga.
Cheers from the dusty desert,
