    Hi Malgo.
    I love this photo. It's such an imposing structure, but at the same time, it's detail and carvings make it seem quite delicate. The white on blue sky is superb and the green tree adds a nice extra touch of color. Great note too, I have never heard of an umbrella so embellished as the ones you describe. I hope all is well.
    Cheers

    Hi Serge,
    That is a novel balloon, and if you don't mind me saying, a rather creepy one too. I never understood how clowns were supposed to make children smile when they make most adults shudder. I would not like to wake up groggy and see this floating past my house :)
    Interesting post. It might make you smile to hear that recently in dublin, a balloon shaped like a minion from the cartoon movie broke free and ended up on a busy city road. There were brilliant photos of a forty foot high minion rolling down the road. One local councillor said the breach of safety was despicable, nice play of words.
    Best wishes

    Hi Maciej.
    A fascinating story behind this little building, and it sounds like the interior is beautiful. The light is falling from a great angle to make the facade we can see glow, especially presented in from of this beautiful deep blue. I really like your workshop photo too, that long view the ruin looks great. Great to learn of this place, thank you.
    Cheers

    Hi Laurent,
    Beautiful architectural scene, the fight, shadows and textures are all fantastic. I really like your off centre composition too. It works perfectly, helped that the facade of the building is not symettrical, that's a lesson in photography for me, so thank you! Excellent flutter in the flag standing proud too.
    Cheers

    Hi Noel

    The strong backlight has been well managed with still plenty of colour, which seems to often be a first casualty when shooting into the sun. The graphic elements between the lighter toned blue sky and the dark bare silhouetted branches of the tree are superb. Excellent sharpness and framing. Tfs.

    Hi Gyorgy,
    That is a really unusual light, it looks almost as if these cows are on stage, performing the sound of music. An interesting choice to make black and white too. This is a very unique photo.

    Hi Chris.
    Great building, a nice modern mix of old styles that works perfectly well. Great view off to the distance on the right too, nicely timed to capture the incoming thunderstorm. There is a great lit falling on the building which brings out nice detail and shadow.

    Hi Luciano

    I recognize the bg cathedral which is perhaps THE icon of Helsinki. This shot reminds me that I haven't yet uploaded the red church down near the Viking Boat pier. I recognize the Ferris wheel too. Good sharpness and the enormous ship at right reminds me of a similar one I saw in Alesund in Norway. Tfs.

    Hi Ray,
    Sounds lke something dodgy went on here alright, and although this is a great illustration of the structure itself and it's parkland setting, I am guessing this must be very intrusive in this place. These stories of cronyism Are so frustrating, landscapes changed and tax payers ripped off. It never stops eithere, Ireland is reeking of cronyism today and it will cost our people a lot in the future. It seems every week the news are revealing new stories of such things.
    Cheers

    Hello Ike

    Nice to see your local neighborhood. Good sharpness and a superb high pov as you say. Good colour and sharpness and its looks to be a peaceful and prosperous area. The area of trees adds a nice green breathing space. Tfs.

    Hello Lars,
    There are lots of very attractive buildings in this photo and the superb sharpness gives them full credit. I also like the yellowish slightly hazy light that gives the view a certain softness. Maybe we should thank the window for that effect ;-).
    Thank you very much as well for your very kind words on my latest photo.
    Best regards,
    Gert

    Ciao Maurizio, que sorpresa! Sono molto felice di vederti qui. And a very nice picture. Wow, How I would like to be on this small wild beach and to take a bath in this emerald water. Beautiful place, nice composition, great colours and sharpness.

    Hello Jean,
    I hope you had a fence between yourselves and these animals. No matter how friendly they normally may be I would never trust big, strong animals with sharp horns. But as long as they are quietly grazing and minding their own business they are ideal for a pleasant photo. As John pointed out, the high quality of this photo is better appreciated "at full size". To be honest your chosen size may even be a bit too large. It is not possible to see the entire photo without a bit of scrolling.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Burak

    Wonderful reflections in the tranquil water and the lush greenery of the grass and obvious high rainfall and lack of strong sunlight are self-evident. Good sharpness and the red house at left and white house at right counterbalance each other. I like the soft, diffused light. Tfs.

    Hi Benny,
    Your crop and frame are really nicely done and the photo is brilliant. The smiles of the two girls in the window are beautiful and really infectious, I am smiling looking at this. This joule make a brilliant magazine ad for this food chain.

    Hi Lars
    This is a wonderful View of the city, the Hancock tower is perfectly placed and the variety and intricate details of the other skyscrapers is fascinating. The lake behind is a perfect background that really emphasizes the buildings heights too. Nicely done to take this through glass, really difficult to do at times. The golden light at this time of say is beautiful creating valleys between the buildings. Very cool photo.
    Cheers

    A stranded decaying subject that has seen better days and now sadly forgotten that has an haunted feel to it. Excellent photo documenting its demise, good colour & detail with excellent focus. Well done, Congrats

    Hello Noel,
    An image with a distinct eerie feel to it. Very well framed to make the best use of the silhouettes offered by the tree and the abbey ruins. The intense blue sky makes a superb backdrop.

    This is well spotted opportunity and lovely quick snap, kids are always attractive subjects to capture such a very natural image with that eye connection - the strength of this shot. The adorable and no words needed! Great shot, tfs.
