Hello Gyorgy, I like the version of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" that you mentioned in your note. It's too bad the singer died so young... The smile on the musician's face makes this photo a gem. He looks so genuinely happy to be singing and playing his guitar. It's a common setting, but that joyful act makes this airport waiting area come alive in a special way.[+]

Hello Craig, This is a cool find. It's certainly different than a typical cemetery, with those tightly-packed rectangular plots. You have to step on other people's graves to get to your loved ones. I like the high POV in both this shot and the WS photo. All the greenery and the ruined church are also attractive in very different ways.

Hello Lisa, I definitely wouldn't stand on the edge of that cliff, but thankfully that couple did. They provided the opportunity for a really spectacular shot. :-) The tiny silhouettes make the vast space seem even larger. The dramatic hills and small bit of water are beautiful, too. This photo reminds me of a recent photo from Iceland taken by "lousat": tiny people on a cliff, but his version has lots of water in it. :-)

Ciao Luciano, I love the lighting in this photo, and how small the people look. The tiny silhouettes make this spot look even more impressive. The contrast between light and dark, and the bit of mist are great. Everything comes together to create a magical scene.

Hello Craig, I really like this composition, even if a bit of the circle is missing. The asymmetry works really well here, and the boy wearing red is a great bit of color. This is definitely a photogenic castle. I looked at Noel's photos and saw one with a small bit of the fountain in it. I like that we can take in the whole castle, which seems to have a mix of styles.

Hello Malgo, I like how the town is just beginning to light up in this photo. The architecture in the hills is really lovely, and so is the water in the foreground. It's a very picturesque spot that looks even nicer at dusk.

Hello Ike, Great photo from your archives. I love looking back on styles from the past, such as the older cars and clothes. I also love the old "don't walk" sign on the corner. This spot is almost exactly the same now, except for that crossing sign. I like the way the city looks when the snow is fresh, too.

Hello Rob, I have always liked the combination of these two buildings. Their styles are so different. They are also interesting because they sit in an unusual spot, in the middle of Park Avenue. Nice job composing this photo; I can really appreciate the architectural details, especially of the Helmsley Building.

Hello Gert, I love urban art, so this photo grabbed my attention right away. Great composition, with the colorful church on the left. I clicked on the link and looked at all the murals. The art and architecture remind me of the Lower East Side here in NYC. I enjoyed this post: the main photo, the WS, the note and the link. :-)[+]
The snail Procession - VII by adores (45845)

Hello Ana, This is another lovely photo from the snail procession. I like how they created the outline of a church with the shells. Your exposure and POV are great. I wonder...where do they get so many snail shells from? They need a lot of shells for this procession!
