The architecture here is lovely, and I like the curve of the facade. I especially like the stones that are in the foreground. They are close enough to examine the color and texture. The crop you were forced to choose really does work well, too. It seems that there's a broken window in the center, but that just adds more character to this building. :-)
How about some Asian food? by holmertz (43619)

It definitely is a much smaller world these days, with cultures mixing and creating nice surprises like this one. That couple is standing in just the right spot for a nice composition. :-) Here in NYC it's no surprise to find Chinese owners of a Mexican taco restaurant, or Mexican owners of an Italian pizzeria. I wonder if the owners of this restaurant are actually Asian. I like the strong colors, and the pictures of all the dishes.

What a beautiful explosion of color. The exposure of these wonderful windows is perfect. I know it can be hard to photograph windows in such a dark interior. I like your POV looking up, and the small bit of golden light that is illuminating some of the details. Very nice! :-)

This is definitely a photograph, poetry, and an impressionist painting all combined together. It's beautiful! The placement of the two people in the frame, the way the girl's dress is flying up at the hem, the rolling pattern in the field - it is all magical. I think you did a great job capturing the feeling of this place.

It looks like this cathedral could be easily tipped over. ;-) I like the colors and textures of all the old stones - and they really ARE old. We don't have stuff that old here in North America...too bad. Nice moody sky, too.

Cool windows. :-) I like when architecture includes something a bit different and unexpected. Your vertical presentation and the blue color are very nice. I think designers should have more fun with windows when creating a new building. :-)

This photo, and Allan, have a lot of character. If the location didn't specify that it was taken in Denmark, I'd think it was captured along Route 66 here in the USA. There is a lot of US car memorabilia here! The somewhat dainty cup and bowl in front of Allan are nice touches, and I like the orange color of the wall. It's something different and interesting.
Time for transhumance by adores (39808)

Interesting POV in this photo. It seems like we are also in that long line of people and animals. I like the lighting, and the way we can see some dust being kicked up into the air. It looks like some of the animals have something on top of them - a kind of decoration maybe? I can imagine it wasn't a very comfortable walk, but you did get a lovely photo. :-)
Force of the Tides by annjackman (20533)

Very interesting effect created by the crashing waves. I can see the force of them running down the rocks. I like the hill in the background, and the horizontal line of low clouds that seem to touch the water, too. The sound of the waves must be soothing, like a white noise machine. :-)
REPOST "Bach or Buxtehude" by batalay (36439)

Nice capture of the little girl wandering past the mystery musician. I like the black background, and the man's costume. I see figures like this a lot here in NYC, but never dressed as classical musicians; they are usually the Statue of Liberty or a ballerina. :-) I hope all is well with you and Carol Jean.
