beautiful composition. I like very much how you have combined the old and new architecture here together.
I like those typical American street lamps -they are so stylish. here you have placed one set against the shiny new skyscraper. It looks fantastic! The new building is framed nicely with the oldstylish ones.

variety of disasters add something unusual to our photos: as I say we travel not only in space but also in time. Sometimes it is just a remodeling for example I remember to set appointment to meet some friends in front of a popular mall in Santa Monica not knowing that it was demolished with the plan to make a new one. I had never a chance to see WTC in New York as I have been there after September 11. Your pictures from Nepal are thus of a great value: even if rebuilt it will never be the same. So I am so jealous of this reportage which you share here.
Interesting architecture, lovely view. It was definitely worth to climb the tower to see it.
Very well done,
Winter in Central Park II by worldcitizen (7403)

great winter atmosphere. I did not see much snow this year -there was no winter and no summer either.
I had a pleasure to visit this lovely park many years ago. I remember we came to see an event "Shakespeare in the Park". Sadly my English was not good enough to appreciate the performance, but it was a great experience.
Great symmetry makes an attractive geometry here.

gratulacje z okazji 200tnego zdjecia z Wloch! W rzeczy samej w Twojej galerii TE iloscia zdjec Wlochy ustepuja tylko Polsce.
Tak ostatnio mowilem koledze w pracy z Wloch ze gdybym mogl wybrac kraj w ktorym mialbym sie urodzic to bylyby to chyba Wlochy. Wloska kuchnia to moja ulubiona, kraj chyba najpiekniejszy itd Jedyny klopot jak na to odpowiedzial moj kolega ze tam nie ma pracy :(
Dlatego ostatecznie pewnie wybralbym kraj ktory na Twojej liscie jest nastepny co do ilosci zdjec -bodajze 175... w szczegolnosci Kalifornie :)
Piekna fotografia, bardzo przyjemne dobrze nasycone i naturalne kolory. Ladne swiatlo, urocze niebo.
Ten budyneczek ladnie sie prezentuje w naturalnym otoczeniu przyrody.

ha ha -the title is very suitable and it is always a great idea for a photographer -if people came also to watch and the disturb -it is better to take a step back and use them as a foreground :)
Beautiful sunset with great cloud pattern and amazing colors. Silhouettes of people add some life and interest.

I haven't been to Cornwall yet but beautiful pictures tempt me to go there in the nearest future. Usually people show great coastal views but in this picture I see that there is also a magnificent architecture to see there. Lovely presentation with attractive garden in the foreground. If the weather was more often like this -I guess Cornwall would be really packed with tourists from all over the world.
Very well done,

lovely panoramic view of this charming town. Nice composition with the tower places asymmetrically and the slight hill making a diagonal in the frame. The tower has an interesting architecture.
The light was not optimal but the presentation gives away the beauty of the location and design of the town.
Very well done,

fantastic capture. I did attempt to take similar ones when I went with my little daughter to few aquariums but it was not that easy. I cannot show them here as it would be against the TE policy to show family ;) But I tried to capture as well face of the child as it was more a family photo, here you are free and the silhouette of the child is perfectly sufficient. Child seems to be in awe of the underwater world and the aquarium looks great itself. Excellent balance of the exposition.

if a Canadian tells me that it is not too cold -well I am not sure if I should believe it ;)
Some places are beautiful but I am glad I don't have to go there and suffer the bad weather by myself -I am glad that other endured the difficulty and I can simply enjoy the great picture :)
I am not saying that this is the case for Lofoten, I would definitely like to visit Norway at some point but as mentioned: we have no summer in England this year so going for winter holidays with hail storm does not appeal to me...
The picture is quite spectacular though. I can see why you are so excited about this place. I think Ney had shown some pics from Lofoten, and emka will :)
The red painted houses look very pretty here, all in the same style. Red goes well with the surrounding scenery, they also provide the sense of scale.
By the way: let us know as soon as your trip to UK gets crystallized. I wonder what you will visit. I cannot miss your visit for the second time. We could even organize a TE meeting -UK has plenty of active TE members. Unless you want to meet us all separately in our natural environment. In that case I would be located somewhere between Durham, York or Whitby.

rzeczywiscie wyglada na poranek -taka ladna uliczka a jeszcze pusta, Tylko jeden samochod, jeden przechodzien i puste stoliki.
Ladne to miasteczko i wszystko wydaje sie jzapewne jeszcze bardziej urokliwe dzieki ladnej slonecznej pogodzie -kolory sa zywe i atrakcyjne.
