strictly speaking it is not a blue hour but something like a PINK hour :)
It is spectacular! I like the subtle gradient of purple/pink and orange. The clouds dot the sky decoratively. The buildings of course provide interesting silhouettes. Yes I would be coming back to this spot very often :)

nice street scene. I thought right away that only steep streets like in San Francisco would allow such interesting perspective. You have well used this opportunity placing people on the edge of the horizon.
Very attractive effect, well done!!
Oh, Catastrophe! by Royaldevon (31489)

lovely beach scene, and even more interesting thanks to your dramatic note.
Funny thing: what is a "catastrophe" may be relative.
For example my daughter in her nursery: teachers (I guess in general: people in England) don't care about child being exposed to cold, wind or rain. They let children run in T-shirts at the freezing cold wind.
On the other hand: if there is A LITTLE SUN, the teachers are obliged to put A LOT of sun cream on children's faces, use hats and roofs etc.
I tried to explain them that we prefer the opposite: child could get some sun but should avoid cold....
I thought about it here because our daughter of course seeing the sea runs straight into it, regardless of the temperature... and we struggle to stop her, while other parents here don't stop their children...
Very well seen and captured,

very nice series and so well done. Recently also Maria was showing some graffiti from Buenos Aires.
I like this one here having so many interesting elements. You also always smartly include a person passing by to anchor the art in the real life.

interesting daily life scene. Your photos have now even higher value. They were already so precious due to the fact they are from exotic destination AND taken long time ago AND of great quality. Now the disaster adds to it.
I have mentioned that it is my birth year. I would be actually interested to see photos from this year from Poland, but I guess you did not happen to be in Poland that year?
No parking by lousat (79421)

it is a very funny one.
By the way: yesterday (Monday) was in the United Kingdom a bank holiday. Usually most offices are closed on that day. It is roughly treated as a Sunday here.
I went for a hike in the North York Moors National Park. But all the parking spaces were taken. People started to park along the road but there were tiny signs along the road "no parking". At least 100 cars did not believe that someone would check it on a bank holiday. And yet I saw a person walking along the road checking and sticking tickets to the windscreen :(
So... I went elsewhere...

I have recently taken several shots of this species in our Stewart Park. I was afraid to show it here though as I thought moderators may see it as too common. But indeed I don't recall seeing this species in Poland.
Extraordinary quality of the picture. We can see the texture of the feathers or the feet. We can admire the subtle differences in the color tones. You have also captured it in a brownish setting which looks like a moor indeed. Beautiful picture, I really enjoy it.
Time for the Taj by macjake (58270)

wow this is very impressive and I would not guess it is Taj Mahal as it is lees recognizable from this angle. Very nice frontal symmetry.
I like the light which added the diagonal shadows and beautiful polarized sky. Silhouettes of people do not disturb but allow to imagine well the scale.

I like very much city arches. I have even created a theme where I gathered my arches CLICK HERE to see it. Not only I don't have this one in my collection but I have never seen it before, in fact I did not see many photos from this country at all so I am glad that you share this lovely presentation.
Very well done!

beautiful reportage. I like the elegant narrow streets. Very well balanced exposition with both sunny and shaded areas preserving the details. I like the composition with the road in the foreground. There are plenty of attractive lines all over the frame which make the geometry very appealing.
Very well done!
