This is a most amazing, modern building!
You have used a fine aspect to get full value from its unusual shape and materials.
When I have a few free hours, I may attempt the count!
Maybe not, I never have a few free hours!
Have a good w/ e

This is a quite beautiful photograph of this region of Italy. I'm sure you will have inspired others to seek out this area.
I like how you have used the fence and its shadow to guide viewers succinctly into the m/g, where the chalets look detailed and colourful, bathed in sunlight. They are backed by conifers and magnificent, snow-capped mountains. The whole scene is amazing.y eye-catching.
Thank you for sharing this,

A very 'different' photograph!
I really like how the gloomy tunnel of fronds is highlighted by the sun, permeating the upper parts and casting a reflective line on the water.
You are right, this creates a palpable sense of mystery,especially with the figure disappearing round the corner!
Have a good w/e,
Agaves in the Algarve - for Malgo by tyro (23020)

Two excellent photographs detailing some interesting aspects of the Algarve ... that is algaves!
In your main shot, the plant is strongly positioned, giving immediate f/g interest, whilst the dirt path leads nicely towards the village.
There is a fine aspect out to sea, giving a very pleasing, overall impression of the area.
Good use of thirds; I think it becomes instinctive but still worth mentioning!
Have a good day,

I have to say, thank goodness that sheep have such thick, warm fleeces!
Winter has certainly arrived in Switzerland and your photograph reveals the mood precisely!
A very well composed shot, with the animals taking the f/g and the receding rows of buildings supplying the b/g.
A good exposure in difficult conditions.
My warm regards,
Hindu temple and beach by jemaflor (91349)

What an unusual place to have a temple!
However from a photographer's point of view, it works extremely well.
I love the introduction via the white sand, before we meet the inviting blue water and, eventually, the temple.
My instinct was for the temple to be less centrally placed. and, in that way, it seemed to have a closer, diagonal connection with the boat. I did a little w/s to show you what I mean. I hope you like it.
Waterfall of Edessa by danos (92654)

It's a pity that we can't have audio, too, for I'm sure there would be a lot of noise connected to your photograph!
You have captured this as I like it. The water is sharp and splashing as it cascades down the cliff face. A slow shutter speed would have lost all this exciting detail!
The people are important as they immediately add scale and give the waterfall a greater stature.
Have a great day,

Alsace is such a beautiful area and you have captured its many qualities to share with us. The cobbled street, the timber-framed houses, the floral displays are all a delight to the eyes.
The lady in the f/g animates the scene and gives us a focal point.
My warm regards,
Reflections - III by mesutilgim (90766)

Reflections are a photographers dream and this one was far too good to miss! The image in the water looks like a deeper, mirror image of the original and the whole is sharply exposed.
My only suggestion would be to crop from the left so that the image is not so centrally placed.
Have a lovely day,
