The warm lighting shining on the stairs and monument is very nice. The people seem to be enjoying themselves there, too. I agree with Craig's critique: my instinct is also to crop out the light on the left. No matter, it's still an interesting daily life scene. :-)

I'm surprised nobody critiqued this photo yet. I always enjoy seeing the NYC skyline, especially at night. The colored lights atop the Empire State Building stand out beautifully. The sharpness is good, considering they don't let visitors use a tripod, even at night.

This photo is so beautifully presented and composed. I really like the traditional architecture, surrounded by the snowy landscape. Having just a part of the facades in the frame is very nice. I also like the WS photo. It's too bad I didn't get to visit this site during my two trips to Japan...

I like the pink and purple hues in this photo. The misty atmosphere and the light shining through the haze create a mysterious mood. I also like the way the the thin boats are lined up. Varanasi sounds like quite an adventure. :-)

I really like this building! I have a photo of it that I might post in the future. When I met you and Carolina we sat having coffee and tea on the same block. :-) You snapped at the right moment, so the bus didn't cover the word "Grace". The black car stopped at the traffic light anchors the composition nicely.

Welcome to TrekEarth. This is a great first photo. The cloud patterns and the sunlight through the bridge are really special. The conversion to black and white also adds strength to the photo in my opinion. This bridge reminds me of the Queensboro Bridge here in NYC.

It's definitely rare to find a library without computers these days, especially in a country with such a high literacy rate and emphasis on education. With the gap closing between Cuba and the rest of the world, especially with the US, it is only a matter of time before things change. This is a simple daily life view, but it tells us a lot about the pace of life in Cuba. This seems like a quiet library, and there are only women in this particular photo and the WS photo, too.

It's nice to see this unexpected temple in South Africa. I like the traditional pagoda architecture, and the bright colors. The view, looking up through the brush is very effective. The moody sky also adds to the overall scene. Nice capture of Africa and Asia coming together. :-)
