Hello Bev, I guess everyone loves some bagpipe music. ;-) I like your framing, and, of course, the gentleman himself. This photo reminds me of a recent experience in Union Square, one of my favorite spots here in NYC. One day I stumbled upon a quartet of bagpipe players who were performing pop music on their instruments. They told the crowd that they came all the way from Scotland, and they were really good. I thoroughly enjoyed their performance. :-)

Hello Gert, This does look like a nice place to relax. Sitting near any body of water is soothing to me. It's an interesting mix with the scenic river, and also some urban grit on the left. I like the WS photo of the impatient duck. I often feed the turtles in Central Park's largest lake, and sometimes the ducks show up wanting the food. At least they're not as pushy as the geese. Those birds can get very forceful when they're hungry!

Hello Zbigniew, This is a lovely, sunny view of the palace and gardens. The symmetrical architecture is really attractive, and so are all the different flowers, although the one tropical-looking tree on the left seems like an odd choice. :-) By the way, thanks for adding me to your list of favorites. I appreciate it.

Hello Piotr, I love the combination of architecture, and the framing of this photo. It has strong visual impact. The lighting and earthy colors are wonderful, and there are so many different shapes. It really jumped out at me.

Hello Mike, Great B/W photo, with a moody atmosphere, and a neck-breaking POV. :-) I've seen that twisty building in several other photos, and I really like it. I love the way the tops of these skyscrapers come close to converging in the center of the frame. Very nice!

Hello Takero, Your first photo from Mexico is wonderful. I like the low POV, and all the colorful dresses. There are so many lovely smiles, and the old church is an excellent background. This photo really captures the colorful spirit of Oaxaca.

Hello Lisa, That happy accident created a very unique and beautiful photo. The red glow seems like something from another world, and I'm surprised by how much of the foreground is illuminated by that single head torch. The exposure of the sky is perfect and fascinating, too.

Hello Zbigniew, This looks like a lovely castle, and it's in a great setting. With the beautiful, blue water off to the side, this view is really nice. I like how the stone foundation leads us from the foreground out towards the castle. It's an attractive photo. :-)

Hello Craig, Great POV. I also like the greenery mixed in with the older architecture. It looks like there are a lot of old, brick buildings in Edinburgh, and there must be a lot of architectural details to focus on and photograph. The red building is especially nice.

Hello Mesut, I was surprised to see this photo. I know exactly where this is, because my sister lives in this building!! You must have been staying in the Bentley Hotel, which is just around the corner. I often play around with reflections and views of the Queensboro Bridge from my sister's window. One view is in my gallery from a few years ago. I like this familiar view very much. :-)
