What an image! I love the play of direct sunlight and reflected light in the arches and the clarity in the shadows as well as full sun. It looks so tranquil. The light seems so natural not over processed HDR.

Falling Water really is a "must see". After reading about Frank Lloyd Wright, his architecture, and life, for years, we finally got to stop in May of last year. You've done a great job of capturing the "water" and "falling" in the name. The cool blue certainly reflects the coolness of the masonry construction that must have been present in March.

I like this version because it eliminates the extraneous, sticks to the subject. In this case the subject is this magnificent tree, the tree on the right forms a nice margin and the people give scale. The sunshine on the ground emphasizes the shade provided by the tree. The color are very complimentary. It all works for me.

I'm 3 1/2 years late again, but just had to comment. I love your portraits. The time you take to establish rapport has been very successful, they show that despite our differences in life styles, languages, religions, environment, and cultures, we humans are truly one family.

I feel kind of funny posting to a photo placed on TE over 4 years ago but I just have to make some comments on this one. WOW! When we here in the US think of Algeria we think of sandy, hot desert; dusty souks; and traditional North African buildings. Thanks for helping to educate us. These layers of mountains show us we really don't know as much about the world as we need to, and that the photographers eye reveals our common humanity.

I've loved the cascades since I visited Crater Lake in Oregon some 30 some years ago. On our grand tour west it seemed a long days journey from anywhere but the scenery particularly the blues and contrasting rocks and snow (even in July!) make me recommend the trip to anyone. I've recently come to TE so my posts may seem belated, but I had to comment on your spectacular capture of those blues, volcanic rocks and the snow.
