Hello again Craig,
From the thumbnail I thought this was a building, and then I opened it and...surprise! :-) I've seen this fountain before here on TE, but never from this POV. The blue hour makes it even more dramatic, with the children illuminated from below, and the color of the fountain matching the color of the sky. It's a great scene!

Being a fan of modern architecture and reflections, this scene really appeals to me. :-) I like all of the distorted reflections in the shiny, glass facade. Nice job with the tight framing, too.

I hope you had a good flight, and are having a blast overseas. Nice lighting in this photo, with the plane climbing up past the palm trees. I like the cloud formations, too. Have a fun and safe adventure! :-)

Great framing in this photo! I really like how the outer edges are dark, and then the interior section comes to life with light and color. It's nice to see some people relaxing on the steps, too. For a handheld shot the sharpness is great. The thumbnail caught my eye right away. :-)

This city definitely looks crowded, but that's not unusual for me. :-) I like how all the red roofs are in the foreground, and then everything else is white. It looks like a mostly flat place, without any tall buildings. I hope all is well on your end. Is Jason in your town yet?

Great shot! I always admire the beauty of these mosque interiors, and you got a lot of great details in this one frame. I like the circle of lights that are close to the ground, and all of the amazing artwork. That one, lone man makes the scene - wherever he came from. :-) Very nice!
For Lisa - A Funny Pizza Story by macjake (52982)

I don't know about Naples, but I can certainly tell you where to find the best pizza and Italian food in Brooklyn. :-) They also use a wood-burning oven, and, when I leave after a great meal, I smell like I'VE been in the oven, too! I like that the oven in this photo, and the wall, are very artistic. That certainly looks like a yummy pizza, and I can imagine the aroma. Nice daily life shot, and another entertaining note to go with it. :-)

Congratulations on seven years! I always enjoy the architecture in Polish towns, and this red building in the center is a beauty. The windows and the details near the clock are lovely. With all of the people and pigeons, it's a colorful and lively daily life scene. Here's to many more years on TE! :-)

I like the chosen point of view in this photo. The line of colorful prayer flags, stretching out from the foreground into the distance, is very nice. Together with the trees, mountains, and some people on the left, it's an eye-catching composition.
NY Shopping by alvaraalto (5921)

I recognized this block on Fifth Avenue right away, No, I don't shop there, I only walk by it a lot. ;-)I like all of the life and colors in this one frame. This is NYC: expensive shops, cheap hot dogs, and lots of people everywhere all the time. :-)
