I really don't get the whole Terrorist thing, what is the point!! One day they'll get them and stop ISIS.
so sad to hear about the recent events.
as for the photo itself, it has lovely hues and tones.
and of course the clouds stand out well too.
see you around

always fun to see these comical hot air balloons flying high up in the air. I guess this one is a simple clown face, but it also has a hint of creepyness to it too haha
good to have all that blue surrounding it for contrast.
Distorted cityscape by PaulVDV (24379)

not too abstract for me!
In fact, I wish we could see more and more of these abstract images on TE.
this is almost like having 30 photos in 1, lots of images and shapes and distortions going on - what's not to like right?
fun and interesting

yeah, good thing you went for a walk along the promenade after the boat ride - it paid off well with this unique city view.
how often do we get to see a colorful lego building like this just sitting around. and it makes me wonder how it looks at night too, i bet it lights up like a Christmas Tree!
Keep an eye out for more Bergen shots, I'll post one soon.

at first glance I thought this was taken in Lofoten, haha
for obvious reasons the people scattered all about make up alot of the visual interest, and the mountains in the bg cap it off so well.
nothing to complain about in this shot!

this is 1935 meeting up with 2015....see the Subway sign in the bg, i'm surprised its not a McDonalds!
my first impressions of this scene were...how on earth did you get it to be so sharp and clear? Must be those Surgeon hands of yours :)
at only 1/25, this is very crisp and clear my friend, very impressed indeed.
and I like the overall purple haze, especially when you look at it from afar, or in the smaller gallery page.
glad you posted this one, its quite unique.
Hope you're enjoying your weekend

I wish we could see a little bit more of that green building on the left :)
But you wanted to also capture the man inside the picture so i understand.
lots of charm and history here once again.
and the falling composition of the buildings into the bg is quite nice too.

so how do you get all these butterfly photos?
because everytime I try to photograph them they fly away on me :)
I don't think i've ever seen one with this color combination before, the orange and blue is quite striking indeed.
excellent work in allowing for the bg to be blurred out.
Mackinac Bridge by Tue (29018)

thats strange, I don't recall seeing this bridge on TE before, or at least not for a long time.
I like the name they gave it, Big Mac, seems to suit it just fine.
excellent pov from this angle, we get an excellent sense of just how much it raises up and down.
Praia Grande in Arraial by ricardomattos (5345)

well, i can honestly say that i've never seen this sculpture before. and its great how they made it exactly to her size! Sometimes these statues are 20 feet tall and quite rediculous.
good framing with the shadows and woodwork, and the various tones of blue are sweet too
