Very nice and appealing presentation of this palace, that seems to have a surprising mix of sobriety and intricate ornaments. I like how the light bounce on the pool of water, brightening surrounding walls the same way a huge softbox would do.
Good exploitation of the symmetry, clever framing, with just the right space to show the delicate clouds in the sky.

On format tout désigné pour cette photo aux couleurs douces. Non seulement le trio de fillettes est il essentiel à cette composition, mais il est bien placé dans l'espace laissé libre par les dhows.
On reconnait Zanzibar au premier coup d'oeil, avec cette lumière et ces teintes typiques de l'endroit.
Land of Pashminas & Changpa nomads by Angshu (53976)

Hi dear Shushu!
Oh yes, I like this one!
It's simple and immensely attractive. If the idea was to show the beauty in ruggedness, you have succeed your mission my friend.
This landscape, and the way you have framed it, conveys a sublime faraway feeling with weather conditions that are surely not estranged to the atmospheric result. The partial light also contribute to the special mood of your image.
I like the "one point of focus", that gurs which is an element of interest on its own, but becomes larger in this remarkable surrounding. The turquoise line is a point of precious water that probably explains why the nomads have installed themselves in this specific spot, and what it does in your photo is to break the uniformity of the golden hue, with a perfect colour complement.
Awesome stuff MSir Chatterjee!

Back to your signature images conveying your distinctive touch.
These guys look just like me when I am watching chicken wings grilling in the oven...
I enjoy and appreciate the way you are inspired to create imaginative photos in museums, art galleries and other artistic expositions, often playing with light and silhouettes. On this one, we surely feel the radiation, even the heat. Simple colour palette always works for me.

I guess he became the new official figure of Havana, after the old lady died. His name is Ermenejildo Arencibia Griñan and I have him in my gallery as well. Lonely Planet have bought this photo when I came back from Cuba, so he might have appeared in one of their guides since then.
I like your version, which I found original, but was he posing for someone else? If you took him from this angle, it must have been to put emphasis on the big cigar. I also like the church in the background, creating a monochromatic image.

Hola señor Macintosh,
That wide angle is put to good use in this image, where distortion is à-propos and relevant. The result looks actually captivating and professional and I don't understand why people wouldn't like it...? These lens have been invented to achieve this effect, and that kind of photography is all over in the most prestigious magazines.
The inclusion of the colourful church goers is a bonus for sure, adding a layer of interest. Most of the scene is well lit, with strong contrasts that creates a lot of impact.
Your sky is slightly too yellow in the blue part, and even if you have used a polarizer, it shouldn't lead to that tint. It's not too dark, but simply contains a 14% of yellow overdose... I'm nit picking here... because I really like the job you've done on this attractive image... :-p))
Well done Gringo!
Landscape of Scopello by dta (60137)

Je constate tout à fait que la ligne d'horizon ne se trouve pas précisément en plein centre, mais l'impression de "moitié-moitié" entre le ciel et la terre persiste; j'aurais souhaité voir une préférence pour l'une ou pour l'autre, soit plus de ce ciel flamand pour en faire le héros de cette photo, ou un peu plus de ce paysage bien réchauffé par la lumière matinale.
J"apprécie la route qui s'inscrit en coin pour poursuivre son parcours sinueux vers le centre de l'image et l'impression de liberté et de grand espace qu'inspire ta photo.

You are posting this photo three weeks too late, as it looks like the ultimate Japanese Christmas card!
This is such a charming place, and from your point of view, it almost looks like a miniature village in Legoland... :-p))
I appreciate the composition and the way you have framed this series of house, creating a trail of light among the other houses. Next time you go there, please call me, I want to visit this lovely village!

A funny and catchy one. It works admirably well.
Two details that makes your street shot even stronger: the way the head of the passerby is mapping the woman's face, and the visual play between the wide open eye of the poster girl, versus the close eyes of the man.
Watching over the temples by yquem46 (38064)

Une photo vraiment intéressante où tous les éléments "reach for the sky".
L'effet est très dynamique, alors que l'ensemble des stupas semblent se diriger vers un même point de fuite stratosphérique. La partie du ciel couverte par les nuages permet au dvarapala de se détacher de l'arrière-plan et de lui conférer une présence qui assure un bel équilibre dans la composition. Cadrage soigné et bien meublé.
