beautiful composition, very creative one. I like how you have focused on the lake itself cutting away the presumably high mountains, it leaves a lot for our imagination. Very nice play of the fallen tree in the lake and the vivid reflection. The colors are stunning of course.

what a beautiful church. I like its unique architecture. You have captured it in a great light and from an angle which ensures we can appreciate the wonderful setting of the temple. I am really amazed by how many beautiful little places are to be found in the County of Cadiz.
You keep surprising us with so many less known towns.
Great TrekEarth contribution!

I am a simple postcard person so I prefer always the frontal view of places like this one here. Lovely castle, I like the two towers which are slightly different. The central part seems more ornamental.
Beautiful place, never heard of it before!
Lunchtime in Dublin by Noel_Byrne (27440)

I remember you were showing this square already and I remember because I showed it as well and commented on your photo :)
Nice composition here: it seems they are going to add new flower pots along the fountain?
Very interesting aspect mentioned in the note. I really miss this aspect of Dublin: there were so many places to find something to eat. even for my picky taste.
Where I work at the moment there is just one cafeteria and most people bring their own food. It is quite said in comparison to the times when I could have a lunch in Dublin city centre.
I liked very much the burritos place not far from Merrion Square but even simple option of Subway seems like a dream now...
Very interesting upload, as usually,

this is so beautiful, very well known, iconic view of Bruges. If I ever get there I will try to repeat it as well...
You have picked the best possible timing, not only the blue hour but at the very best blue hour moment.
The exposition is perfectly balanced.
I admire the perfect sharpness and clarity here. Also the perspective is perfectly straightened, usually it gets difficult when there is a tower close to the edge of the frame but you did a fantastic job here.

fantastic composition from Venice. It was in fact designed to impress the newcomers who were arriving to this town from this direction. You have managed to squeeze in here campanile, palazzo, cathedral and the two famous columns.
The black and white rendering makes it quite original -however I think the red color of campanile would better stand out of the crowd of other buildings in color. It would also go so well with the strongly polarized sky here. I am somehow more into the color photography.
The clouds got a bit burned out. I always thought that in B&W it wouldn't be noticeable but it is.
Not a big deal, I notice many professionals keep it that way.
Also -I allow myself to be very critical only with photos which are really good :)
In any case I have been there a while ago and our picture encourages me to revisit with the digital camera this so photogenic place.
Combination Church and Mosque? by ChrisJ (104347)

it seems you are almost discovering new lands for us here. Balkan countries seem not that popular on TE. I have them at the very top of my list but maybe next year?
This structure is indeed a puzzle. The roof seems a bit resembling the mosques however it also resembles the Byzantine style a bit as well. Thinking for example of the cathedral in Sophia, Bulgaria. I don't know much about Albania but I would probably first think of a mosque as well.
I like this architecture -it is attractive colorful and surprising. Nowadays the new buildings are usually so boring -this one is not.
Wonderful presentation and the whole reportage is fantastic. I bet many people will select Balkan countries next year after seeing that.

a very impressive complex indeed and you have captured it at amazing light conditions: the warm light makes it almost gold in color. You had also a great luck with the cloud hanging above the structure. It makes the sky so much more attractive. Of course the person with the kite adds a further interest and some action to that peaceful scenery.
European Style by fabianoleite (9783)

very stylish architecture indeed and I would never guess it is in Brazil. Nice low perspective makes it feel as if it was a castle on a hill. I like also the white smudges of clouds which add a nice touch here.
Very well done,

interiors are quite a good challenge for a new equipment as they are often the most difficult under low light. The result is fantastic so you can be proud both of the picture and the new camera.
Nice symmetrical take. I like it,
