This photo has a very intimate feeling. It seems like I'm sharing the moment and am a part of the celebration. The exposure is wonderful, and I like the warm lighting and dark background. A happy Deewali to you. :-)

I like the textures of the stones in this photo. They provide a neutral background that really make the little girl's purple sweatshirt stand out. She has such a sweet smile, and seems to be having fun feeding the pigeons. It's a lovely daily life shot.

I guess this goes to show how important movies can be in people's lives! I like how all the people and donkeys are heading towards us. It seems like they will continue to walk right out of the frame. This is another great oldie.

If this photo wasn't in memory of a murdered soldier it would certainly merit a green smiley. But this time I will just thank you for this tribute. Seeing the two soldiers guarding this monument is a strong visual and a fitting view on this somber occasion.
Man In Red for Jason by macjake (54124)

It's funny how red looks great on women, but doesn't have quite the same effect with men! Although this particular gentleman does look sharp, I prefer my male models to wear something a bit darker. ;-) I like all the windows in this photo, and the cute little Juliet balconies. All of the colors are really nice, too.
On a sadder note, it's terrible about the murder in Ottawa yesterday. I will NEVER understand how people can justify killing others. There are so many lunatics out there...
Shadows and Patterns by Royaldevon (27611)

I like all the lines in this photo, and your crop and presentation make the scene really stand out. The tilt is great, and that small grate on the floor in the foreground adds even more lines to the mix. :-) The bulging shape of the railing and all the shadows are very attractive, and those people were sitting in just the right spot to make everything come together.
Sculptures in city center by lestans (17098)

I like public art, and these sculptures are fun. :-) One man seems to be looking at the "children" with wonder, but the other isn't even paying attention to them. I like the different poses of the sculptures, and how real they seem.
Lady In Red (For Craig) by jcpix (12614)

Nice view with the lady in red. She's in the perfect spot with that older house beside her. The architecture, and that bit of blue paint on the window in the foreground, are nice, too. I agree with CLODO's WS on this one, but your original photo is also fine. :-)
The cave by adores (35106)

What an impressive sight. It must have been very dark, but your long exposure is perfect. I personally like this view of Buddha; I have a small collection of Buddha statues at home. It's great that caves as old as these are so well-preserved. I like the columns and beamed ceiling, too.
