    Czesc Malgorzata,
    ogromnie ciekawa podroz do tak bliskiego a jednak tak egzotycznego miejsca! Ja natomiast kolejny weekend spedzam w domu: pogoda nas nie rozpieszcza :(
    Bardzo ciekawe jest polozenie tej wioski. Osniezone gory dodaja klimatu. Interesujaca wyprawa w ktorej pogodzilas zwiedzanie miast ale tez dzikiej przyrody.
    Pozdrawiam serdecznie,

    Hi Mike,
    so nice to see you here. As you can see I am a veteran here already :) This is an amazing wild life photography. It made me think about the Russian matryoshka doll, the one which contains smaller versions of itself inside. You captured it in great light and it is crispy sharp. Excellent work!
    The only thing I warn you about now is that in TrekEarth the site moderators do not like too many animal or bird photos as they created the TrekNature site for it but to certain extent they accept it as it is a travel photography site and wild life is obviously part of the travel experience.
    Looking forward to seeing more of your photos here,

    Czesc Malgorzata,
    no tym razem nie mozesz narzekac, nie da sie sobie chyba wymarzyc piekniejszego nieba a przede wszystkim jest w doskonalej rownowadze z oswietleniem kosciola. Reszta swiata ukrywa sie w cieniu ale to w sumie nie szkodzi tak bardzo, bierze sie to stad ze kosciol jest wyjatkowo jasno oswietlony w porownaniu z otoczeniem. To jest cos czego nie biora czesto pod uwage osoby planujace oswietlenie miejskie: ze ktos bedzie chcial zrobic zdjecie o blue hour :)
    Milo slyszec ze podroz udaje sie swietnie i sadzac po zdjeciach zobaczylyscie mnostwo przepieknych miejsc.
    Niedlugo naprawde zabraknie Ci krajow przynajmniej w Europie :)
    Pozdrawiam serdecznie

    Czesc Kasia,
    wspaniale kolory nieba. Swietny punkt widzenia ktory pozwolil na tak atrakcyjne szerokie ujecie. Ten kosciolek w centrum jest dla mnie waznym punktem z ciekawa ostra wieza. Rzeczywiscie probowalem kiedys robic zdjecia wieczorem w porcie w malym miasteczku w Irlandii i wszystko mi sie rozmylo... statki ruszaly sie za bardzo tak wiec wiem o czym mowisz.
    Bardzo ciekawe miejsce stosunkowo rzadko odwiedzane i zatem rzadko obecne na TE.
    Swietna praca,
    pozdrowienia

    Hi Ney,
    lovely presentation of the famous Golden Gate. I remember walking this path few years ago. This is a less common POV, people tend to present the upper view more often. Excellent work!

    Hi Serghei,
    beautiful presentation of this famous mission. I don't remember the TV series but I had a chance to visit Santa Barbara twice and I really enjoyed it. I spent few years in California and leaving the state was the worst mistake of my life :( so this photo works quite sentimental for me ;( Great compo with the palm trees adding a nice exotic touch,

    Czesc Malgorzata,
    bardzo efektowne zdjecie, nadaje sie na wizytowke Armenii. Koncowka zimy na pewno nie ulatwila Ci podrozy ale dodala uroku zdjeciom i temu i nastepnemu.
    Tutaj jak juz ktos powiedzial wspaniale dzialajaca asymetria i kontrast przyrody z dzielem czlowieka.
    Piekna fotografia zacheca naprawde do wizyty w Armenii.

    Hi Christiane,
    so it seems you have experienced some clouds in Austria as well, here they have even enriched the composition dividing the view into two different worlds.

    Hi Ann,
    it sounds like a really exciting trip to the end of the world! Northern Lights are I guess on many people Bucket list. I am looking forward to see your photos of it. This one here demonstrates the weather which one probably has to face over there at this time of the year. I like how you have captured the snow particles so clear. The composition is great with the road making a pleasant turn and the church adding a nice geometrical shape.
    Very well done,

    Hi Ney,
    beautiful presentation of this majestic monument. I like the great weather which helped you to create pleasant colors. I don't remember seeing this monument and it seems like something what I would like to see. I guess one need more time to explore this interesting city,

    beautiful sky with attractive combination of warm colors. Interesting composition which provided some silhouettes making the sunset so much more interesting. The water aspect is obviously very important providing some reflections to enhance the ambience,

    Hi Eleni,
    someone had a great idea to turn it into a hotel. I have seen so many of such cloisters they are usually museums. Beautiful decoration with flowers, I like the vivid colors. It seems so peaceful and quiet as opposed to the busy world on the other side as we can partially see it above.
    Beautiful and very interesting,

    Hi Will,
    great catch, I really admire how sharp is the girl in spite of being in movement. Obviously I know that one can use faster time but you captured her in the best possible moment which means that you had one go, unless as you mentioned she kept repeating it :)
    I am also amazed by the quality: you say it was taken in 1982! My scans from 2001 are pretty bad already: the negatives were quite damaged over time.
    Excellent photo, smooth body contrasts well with the rough rocks around.

    Hola Luis,
    beautiful piece of architecture. This one is not that popular as other modern buildings in Barcelona. I have never heard about it before. Thanks for sharing it, it seems to have a unique style with some Gothic decorative elements. Very well presented with the focus on the decorative elements.

    Hi Murat,
    these traditional priest clothes seem quite familiar to me -I did not know that we were exporting them from Turkey. That must have been a very interesting exhibition for me. Thanks for sharing that here. I have read your comment to my previous critique. It is nice that a difficult past is celebrated in a positive way. I admire this positive attitude in Turkish nation.
    Very nice composition here, well exposed in difficult light.
    Excellent work,
