Hello Noel, It's the grainy quality of this photo that makes it special, in my opinion. It has an ethereal feeling to it, something magical and unique. The bits of gold on the woman's clothes shimmer a bit through the haze, and I find it very artistic. Sometimes it's not about the image quality per se, but about the feeling it produces. :-)

Hello Casper, Despite my dismay over today's events, your note made me smile. :-) It's a lovely photo. The cat with red ears might be unique, but the native Mayan really catches my eye. It looks like he's propelling that ball very forcefully with his body! Very nice colors and composition.

Hello Lars, I still can't believe what is about to take place tomorrow. :-( This is a beautiful shot of our Capitol Building, with lots of summertime visitors. I can only hope the Inauguration itself will not turn into a side show, but at this point, anything's possible...

Hello Lars, What a picturesque spot. I like the quaint architecture and the warm sunlight. The canal is great, especially since you perfectly captured reflections of the houses in it. There are even lily pads in the water. :-) I hope 2017 has gotten off to a good start for you. :-)

Hello Craig, Wow, what a tilt! This is a cool row of colorful houses, and that green car definitely looks like a classic. I was wondering, though, why the silver car is parked in the opposite direction than everyone else! There's no need for folks on this street to go to the gym; walking up this street is like using a treadmill. :-)

Ciao Luciano, I was looking for you in the tram windows. :-) This is a nice combination of architecture and transportation. There are also some sharp reflections. I like the horizontal lines that are running across the frame, too.

Hello Takero, This is a flawless portrait. Using the umbrella as a backdrop is so beautiful, and the colors are vivid and bright. This Maiko has grace and beauty, and she was an excellent choice for several of your photos.
Oh Blarney! by macjake (71069)

Hello Craig, Beautiful view of the castle. It's so old and holds so much history. If only castles, and other centuries-old structures could talk... The people add splashes of color with their clothes to the mostly green and brown surroundings. So, did you kiss the Blarney Stone? :-)
The Celtic Cross by macjake (71069)

Hello Craig, This photo works well because of the prominent placement of that one Celtic Cross in the foreground. As usual, there's lots of Irish greenery to enjoy, and different crosses of varied sizes to examine. Nice one. :-)
