Hello Craig, It's cool how it really is so much darker in the top part of the frame. The tunnel made by the tree trunks is great, especially with that path running through it. I like the WS photo with Tosca. If you would have posted it as the main photo, we probably would have thought it was just a random woman walking by. :-)

Hello Craig, The boat in the foreground is great. I like the alternating light and shadows on it, and the blue color is nice, too. The greenery behind the waterfront buildings makes a nice backdrop, and this definitely looks like a quaint place to stroll around for a while.

Hello Lucas, Whenever I see this city, it looks so attractive. I like how the church is elevated above all the other buildings, and all of the orange roofs are nice, too. The hills also make a nice backdrop to this urban scene.

Hello Claude, It looks like these people are about to be beamed up in some kind of spaceship! The lighting around the edges of this red sofa creates an interesting effect. The stark contrast between the red and white is also great. This is definitely a unique scene.

Hello again Rob, I love reflections, and I think this photo is really great. The architecture surrounding the new World Trade Center is so unique, and there are so many great photo ops. Here we get a nice double dose of the Oculus, with lots of activity in front of it. Very nice. :-)

Hello Lars, This Statue of Liberty is trying to be cool, with a fancy crown and torch. :-) Great that he or she was extending a hand when you took this photo. I wonder if they tried to get a tip from you afterwards! Very nice focus and framing in this shot.

Hello Rob, The warm sunlight makes this view of the entire Oculus even more attractive. I can also see just a small bit of the memorial fountain the foreground. It has truly been great to see this spot slowly come back to life. I hope it will remain peaceful, and never see any violence and hatred again.

Hello Rob, I'm enjoying all of your great photos of the Oculus. I really like this one because of the play of light and dark. I also thought of a piano when I saw the thumbnail. Very nice crop and presentation.
Brooklyn Streetscape by Tue (39552)

Hello Lars, This is great! The view really captures the character of this part of Brooklyn. The giant mural is a real person, someone who very well might be living nearby, and you have the bridge and some fire escapes in the scene, too. Cars are packed densely along the curb, and someone is either filling or emptying a moving truck. This is a real Brooklyn street, and your chosen composition presents it perfectly.
