I'm always happy to see more urban grit, although these are not the colors I'd chose for my own house. :-) There is definitely a similarity to Havana with the iron grilles on the windows and the cobblestone street. I like how house number 101 has both a plaque with the address and the number actually painted near the door. The WS is cool, too. :-)

I really like the lead-in to these colorful doors. They jump out brilliantly against all of the white that dominates the scene. The small pots are also lovely. Nice job placing the door at the top right corner of the frame. It's an attractive composition.

Congratulations on seven years here on TE! This photo matches very well with the words in your note. These lovely blue doors open to the outside as TE opens our eyes to the world. I like the soft color, and the good balance of outdoor and indoor light. It's also nice to have someone in the doorway, looking out towards the hills.

Japan holds a special place in my heart, and it's a pleasure to see your latest photo from this beautiful country. The combination of the giant statue and the women admiring it, is wonderful. The colorful umbrellas jump out and add extra life to the scene. My friends from Japan who have visited me here in NYC thought is was curious that very few people used umbrellas for the sun. It's so common in Japan. I hope you're enjoying the summer so far. :-)
Lotion Anyone? by macjake (52232)

Great title! This poor guy really does need to get out of the sun. :-) I like your chosen POV and tight crop. The details are great, and so is the greenery and blue sky around this giant head. Now somebody get this man some sunscreen!!

This is a lovely composition. I can almost feel the longing of this giant "lady" as she wistfully faces the sea. The people in the distance seem so tiny, and the beach seems so large. I like the atmosphere and feeling of this shot.

This is such a beautiful scene; it resembles a desert more than a beach. I like the golden color and the warm sunlight. The curves, patterns, and ripples are all amazing, and those tiny footprints near the bottom of the frame are a great detail. We know there's been some life on that beach, but at the moment you captured this image it seemed to be silent and desolate. Very nice! :-)

This is a lovely view of the square during happy times. The children enjoying the fountain are great, and I like all of the colorful facades and the cobblestones on the ground. In contrast, the WS photo is haunting. Thanks for finding this older photo, and including it for comparison. There is so much devastation in the world right now, hopefully the children in this photo will only know peace...

Hello Jean Claude,
This is a lovely view of this charming passage. I like the flooring, and the two rows of old-fashioned lights. You also handled the exposure very well. It's tricky to expose a place with a darker interior and strong outdoor light, but you did it perfectly.
