The "Blue Boy", and the ladies beside him, certainly seem to be engaging the young students. They have a definite air of importance surrounding them, made even more prominent by the spotlights shining on their portraits. I like the blurred figures of the school children. It seems like a very dark interior, but your exposure is very good.

El edificio Chrysler es mi edificio favorito aquí en NYC. Esta visión nocturna es muy linda, con muchas luces y algunos puentes. Al lado del Chrysler hay el puente Queensboro que me gusta, también. Es una escena muy bella.

Great view of the city, with lots of details to enjoy. I really like that you included the curved road in the foreground. It's interesting to see mostly houses in the front, and then see the progression to skyscrapers the closer you get to the harbor. Very nice depth and colors, too.
Blue Boat by saxo042 (35894)

The small blue boat is very charming. I like its position in the foreground, with people actually buying from it as you took this photo. The warm sunlight is great, too. It looks like this area is very modern; maybe in another area some older-style buildings remain. It's a shame when historic buildings disappear. At the South Street Seaport here in NYC they are tearing down the old structure at Pier 17 and building something modern. It's too bad...

You've shown us a lot of great animal photos recently, and this is another one. :-) I especially like the camel in front, who seems to be smiling for the camera. I like the sharp division between the sand and the sky, with perfect exposure under very strong sunlight.

This is a beautiful spring scene. The architecture is great, and I like all of the natural elements surrounding the house: the lake, the flowers, the grass. I also like that you used those branches at the top of the frame. It looks like people were enjoying this lovely setting.

You show us another lovely view from the past, and I like the chosen title, too. :-) This woman has a strong face, and I like her jewelry and bindi. There are so many colors to enjoy here, the green chilies being among the brightest. It's a bold slice of daily life.

I like this frame full of colorful houses. The way they rise up vertically, and all of the orange roofs, really grab my attention. I think it was a good choice to include only a bit of greenery at the bottom, and then nothing else except the houses.

Wow! The photography Gods lined everything up for this fun photo. :-) So much color...so much irony... I really like it. :-) You had a good eye and a quick hand to capture this scene. A Happy Easter to you!! P.S. I am not one of those female shoe hoarders. ;-)

Hello Mr. Ghost Cat :-)
This triple portrait pulled me in. The faces are classic; the grit is real; the view is timeless. This photo transcends time or place. Coal miners from a generation ago could have probably posed for the same scene. I like it. :-)
