Hello Ana, Yes, we both like urban art. :-) This one is different because it is three-dimensional. I also like the use of recycled materials. This giant bird fits in nicely with the small palm tree behind him. Nice POV, too.

Hello Lisa, I was wondering about the missing rotunda when I read the title of this photo, but thanks to your note I now know that it does actually exist. :-) I always like seeing older structures that are still in use; we don't have many pre-1800 buildings here in NYC. Nice job capturing the illuminated facade.

Ciao Luciano, What a charming courtyard! The painted columns are like open-air art. The designs and colors are great. There is almost perfect symmetry, except for one window with its shutters closed on the left side. Very nice!

Hello Gert, This shot has lots of cool details, but I like the giant hammock the most. It looks like it might me a bit difficult to get out of that thing once you are comfortably tucked in! Having that person relaxing so calmly while life goes on just above his head is great. The car has an unusual color scheme, and the two pedestrians are coming from opposite directions. It all adds up to a lovely composition.

Hello Bev, Lovely and elegant simplicity from Ibiza. I like these kinds of old-fashioned lamps, and here we get a double view with the actual lamp and also the shadow. The shadowy palm tree, and the two-color scheme, are also very attractive.
Brooklyn Bridge by alvaraalto (11966)

Hello Rob, This is a beautiful composition. We often see the cables on the bridge, but I like that you also included the stone with the date. There is great symmetry. I like the earthy color of the stones, and the flag flying in the breeze, too.

Hello Noel, Gorgeous presentation of this spot. I like the warm sunlight and the long shadows of the trees on the right. Together with all the greenery and the beautiful statue, I can see why this would be a popular place for weddings.

Hello Chris, It seems like you're having a nice time in Egypt. This view from the balloon is great. I like all the palm trees and greenery. Of course the reflections are wonderful, and I like how the canal leads us out of the foreground.
Little Princesses by kasianowak (8885)

Hello Kasia, They are such beautiful children, and their elaborate clothes and make-up are lovely, but the boredom is evident on their faces. I like the two different glances, one directly at the camera, and the other off to the side. I hope Lake Inle is not overrun by tourists who somehow take away from its charm, but with hotels going up, it sounds inevitable.
