I was on the Río Tárcoles a few months ago, and saw many of these fearsome crocodiles. Your photo shows the stealth and terror that so define these creatures. Excellent POV, exposure and sharpnes. Very well done, indeed!

Yo considero esta ciudad una de las mejores del mundo. Me encanta mucho. Desgraciadamente hace varios años que no la visito. Espero regresar dentro de poco tiempo para ver los muchos cambios que han ocurrido desde la ültima vez que estuve allí. Tu foto me trae muchas memorias favorables a la mente. Me agradan los colores y la claridad de la foto. Has encontrado un día perfecto para fotografear. Y el Castillo es un punto de vista ideal para admirar la belleza de La Capital. ¡Felicitaciones!

I like your photos. They remind us that you don't have to travel to exotic places to find good subjects. I especially like this shot of Big Spring, a place I visited many times in my youth, though I haven't been there in recent years. The scenery there is fantastic. You've captured the beautiful color of the water at the spring, and the steep hillside that flanks it. Nicely done...

I love photos with a contrast in their theme, and the view of old and new structures is a perfect example of that. The towering belfry makes an excellent image by itself; it's a very striking piece of architecture. The "Sheep Stable" is also a very notable work of architecture, with its unique design and location. Putting them together in one photo was brilliant. My congratulations.
Thanks also for the excellent explanation about the buildings.

When I was in Barcelona a few years ago, I made a photo of this same scene. I think yours is better. You have a very good POV, and the exposure, contrast and sharpness are excellent. Besides that, it's a very interesting subject. Nicely done.

What an unusual, but interesting photo. There is linear perspective, as well as implied-line perspective. There are repeated images, brilliant colors surrounded by subdued colors, making the center of interest stand out clearly. Very well done indeed.

The exposure on this photo is perfect. Silhouette pictures are like a genre unto themselves. This one is special, with the brilliant sunset, and the obvious attention-getter of the neon lettering. Outstanding! Thanks for letting the world see your work.
In the Kasbah by mcmtanyel (5173)

I am always a fan of photos that show one-point perspective, such as your photo of the Kasbah. What I particularly like about this one is that the perspective lines are interrupted by the archway, but other lines to the same vanishing point continue through the arch, and beyond. Very well done.

This is a very emotional photo for me. My mother was Jewish, and I identify greatly with the victims of the Holocaust. I was in Berlin for the first time a few months ago, and my wife and I visited this monument. It brought tears to my eyes. Your photo brings back those memories for me. A good photo will do that. You have shown how large this monument is, using perspective and background buildings. If there is any negative thing to say about your image, it would be that I think it would have had more impact as a black-and-white photo. The monument itself is only in shades of gray. Thanks for an excellent memory.

I find this photo intriguing. First, I love the bright blue color of the center of attention against the more subdued colors of the fore- and backgrounds. Second, the perspective is very interresting, with a curved vanishing point that is off the right side of the image. I am a big fan of perspective in photos, and your POV has really caught my eye on this one. The background hills provide additional perspective, but one without a defined vanishing point. Excellent work!
