This is the kind of thing one longs to see when visiting a heavily touristed place like Italy, but because of everyone else around it's so rare. This is precisely what I think of when I think of Italy. Wonderful shot, particularly with that old man. My only complaint is that the sky looks a bit overprocessed. Everything else is fantastic.

I love the Canadian Rockies at sunrise, especially in the winter when the sun reflects off the snow. This shot reminds me of so many sunrise ski trips, shooting from the car window as we made our way to Sunshine Village. Love the gold on the mountain. You also have good exposure control here (or good Photoshop skills), because the detail of the foreground is very good.

So nice to see a shot showing the real Pisa. I'm planning on visiting Italy later this year and Pisa's on the agenda. I was hesitant to visit such an infamous tourist trap just for the Piazza dei Miracoli, until I learned more about the rest of the town and realized that it's beautiful and untouristed (relatively speaking).
Enough about me--about this photo: The light is lovely, and the blue sky against that sunstruck yellow facade is a joy. But it's the girl on the bicycle that really makes the shot. Very well done.

Me encanta la profundidad del campo (no se si asi se dice "depth of field?") y el enfoque en los jovenes al frente. Mas que nada lo que me gusta es que esta foto captura la locura bella del Distrito Federal. Gracias por compartir.

Wonderful! Love the light and the full body of that rainbow (and the faint one above it). I would have cropped those leaves out of the picture though. You can't really see the top of the second rainbow in any event, so I think the picture would have been better without the leaves. Same goes for the posts--I'd crop them out. That way you're focusing on that beautiful rainbow and the sunlit hills. (See my workshop).
Thanks for sharing.

Much better than the standard view from the road! I love the light on the Twelve Bens in the background. Also, the complementary colors of the heather and the yellow flowers in the right foreground are quite nice.
Slieve League View by fisher (1751)

Funny, my shot of Slieve League is my desktop on my computer right now. Absolutely love the light and the clouds here. The most dramatic light I've ever seen on Slieve League, and it's helped by the fact that the left side of the frame is covered in mist. Only thing I'd change? I'd crop out the posts from the fence. Great shot all around though.
Rolling Rapeseed by fisher (1751)

I love pictures of rapeseed fields, and this one is very nice with the low sun and those lovely clouds. However, I'm not a huge fan of the perspective--I think this would have been better on the other side of that pathway. In any event the foreground has a lot of shadows and detracts from the image somewhat. But the upper half of the image is pure perfection! :)
