Hello Kari, It's always fascinating to see planes over this beach. There is very little room for error when landing or taking off there! I think it would be both exciting and a bit nerve-wracking to be so close to these giant jets while they are still in the air. Great job capturing this unique moment.

Hello Gert, I think this photo is perfect the way it is. The mood is something special. You caught a fleeting moment, with the man's face in clear view, and the smoke from his cigarette gently wafting through the air. I like the muted colors and the writing on the wall. This is a very atmospheric scene.

Hello Malgo, I like this classic Trinidad view. The pastel colors and cobblestones are lovely, although it must be hard on the feet and body to walk/ride on them all the time. You have a classic car in the frame, some people, and a nice, long depth. It's an attractive scene.

Hello Craig, I'm not a fan of haunted houses, but I like nice architecture. :-) This building looks like a beauty, and I especially like the colors. Nice foreground with all the greenery and some people resting on a bench. Maybe that empty wheelchair is for the ghost? He might have gone out for a breath of fresh air. ;-)

Hello John, What a sad reality you've captured. I know this past winter had some brutally cold days, and I wonder how this woman managed to stay warm. Once again we see the urban grit, and so many captivating details: the magazine stands, the folded chairs and umbrellas, etc. What will happen when her baby is born? You dare to photograph the things that most people simply walk past.

Hello Roland, This crop is so eye-catching. I like that most of the top 2/3 are filled with the facade and its many windows, while on the bottom we have a tiny bit of life on the street. B/W is also very effective for this view. Very nice! :-)

Hello Rob, Nice composition and color! I like that there are yellow walls and windows reflected in some of the actual windows. It's a double-dose of color and form :-) It's great that you walked the High Line, too. I always enjoy taking a stroll up there.

Hello Bev, Congratulations on your new grandchild! I definitely love the imagination and exuberance of children, and this young man looks like he has a lot of both. :-) I like his colorful clothes and the cobblestones beneath his feet. I became an aunt for the fifth time in February, and I can't get enough of the little ones. Enjoy every minute of this precious time. :-)[+]
New York by Night by weetrees (71)

Hello John, This made me laugh. I was thinking about photographing the entrance to one of these "psychic advisors" in Manhattan. I have never gone inside one of these places, and have often wondered if I could fool them into giving me a completely bogus reading. The 99 cent pizza place is also a classic. I know the garbage waiting for pick-up is a fact of life, but I don't really care for it as the foreground of a photo. Just saying... :-) This photo definitely has a New York City vibe.[+]

Hello Daniel, Lake Bled is so beautiful. This high and wide POV really lets us enjoy both the lake, and the surrounding scenery. I like the color of the water, and all the greenery. You were lucky to capture an interesting sky, too.
