this is such a picturesque POV!
I have seen several photos taken somewhere along the channels in Chicago and I love it. The buildings seem so elegant, it must be a pleasure to take a boat tour over there. Nice view here captured at fantastic weather with interesting sky. The boat adds even more life and interest.

one more interesting isle! I have been quite recently to the Holy Island which was so rich in sights that I did not have even time to explore it all, and now I hear about another one.
Lovely composition with the little cliff covered with colorful flowers which makes a nice foreground.
Very well seen and captured,

I thought I will not be surprised anymore by a photo of this castle but I am deeply impressed! Fantastic idea and a perfect realization. The castle provides here a very characteristic silhouette. Great effect of the direct sun and its reflection in the river. I have to copy this idea in a near future :)

I would never guess that those channels get so beautiful at the low light conditions. Fantastic composition here with the reflection almost undisturbed being the highlight! Great angle and amazing geometry as a result.

Home sweet home!
I am not referring to this ruined house but to the fact that you took this photo after returning home from the trip to Menorca...
In spite of a typical Scottish bad weather :) you did a great job here presenting the ruined house in a very attractive way. I like unique architecture here and I like how the house is decorated with the moss. Altogether it does feel a bit spooky (not sure if I use the word correctly) -meaning it would be appropriate for a Halloween upload :)
You have indeed some nice areas around where you live.
I admire your photo skills that you are able to create a master piece no matter what the conditions are.
West & Chicago nº 179 - OLD & NEW! by npecanhuk (69146)

beautiful composition. I like very much how you have combined the old and new architecture here together.
I like those typical American street lamps -they are so stylish. here you have placed one set against the shiny new skyscraper. It looks fantastic! The new building is framed nicely with the oldstylish ones.
Remembering Nepal: Baktapur by nikkitta (16230)

variety of disasters add something unusual to our photos: as I say we travel not only in space but also in time. Sometimes it is just a remodeling for example I remember to set appointment to meet some friends in front of a popular mall in Santa Monica not knowing that it was demolished with the plan to make a new one. I had never a chance to see WTC in New York as I have been there after September 11. Your pictures from Nepal are thus of a great value: even if rebuilt it will never be the same. So I am so jealous of this reportage which you share here.
Interesting architecture, lovely view. It was definitely worth to climb the tower to see it.
Very well done,
Winter in Central Park II by worldcitizen (7435)

great winter atmosphere. I did not see much snow this year -there was no winter and no summer either.
I had a pleasure to visit this lovely park many years ago. I remember we came to see an event "Shakespeare in the Park". Sadly my English was not good enough to appreciate the performance, but it was a great experience.
Great symmetry makes an attractive geometry here.

gratulacje z okazji 200tnego zdjecia z Wloch! W rzeczy samej w Twojej galerii TE iloscia zdjec Wlochy ustepuja tylko Polsce.
Tak ostatnio mowilem koledze w pracy z Wloch ze gdybym mogl wybrac kraj w ktorym mialbym sie urodzic to bylyby to chyba Wlochy. Wloska kuchnia to moja ulubiona, kraj chyba najpiekniejszy itd Jedyny klopot jak na to odpowiedzial moj kolega ze tam nie ma pracy :(
Dlatego ostatecznie pewnie wybralbym kraj ktory na Twojej liscie jest nastepny co do ilosci zdjec -bodajze 175... w szczegolnosci Kalifornie :)
Piekna fotografia, bardzo przyjemne dobrze nasycone i naturalne kolory. Ladne swiatlo, urocze niebo.
Ten budyneczek ladnie sie prezentuje w naturalnym otoczeniu przyrody.

ha ha -the title is very suitable and it is always a great idea for a photographer -if people came also to watch and the disturb -it is better to take a step back and use them as a foreground :)
Beautiful sunset with great cloud pattern and amazing colors. Silhouettes of people add some life and interest.
