    Hi Way,
    wow, this is so beautiful. I like such extraordinary landscapes. I admire the depth of the field here from the details of the salt surface in the foreground up to the last camel on the horizon.
    Very impressive work! The destination is on my list but also taking into account the safety I will probably never have a chance to go there.
    Great to be able to see it in your gallery. Hoping to see more from this trip soon.

    Hi Bev,
    some places are changing so fast that I would not be able to recognize them after a while and of course visiting for few days one cannot see all possible POV so in the end I wouldn't be able to tell that this is NYC.
    Great view from the window. The sky was magnificent and the water surface adds a nice touch as well by reflecting the low light.
    Very good idea to include the fragment of the building in the foreground on the left.
    Excellent work,

    Hola Luis,
    beautiful square/garden. Very nice composition with so many attractive elements included. I like the decorative fence and the vase in the foreground. Everything seems so pretty and elegant.
    It is a very nice dedication.
    Very well done,

    Hi Ana,
    great composition, obviously very well thought through. The ruin in the foreground adds a nice touch here. I like the vivid colors with the dark blue sky nicely decorated with pleasant little clouds.

    Hi Craig,
    an early bird catches the worm :)
    Great light indeed and nice empty streets. I like the blue domed church it adds a nice element to focus on, and also you have a sea on the horizon which reminds about the fantastic location of this town.
    Excellent work,

    Ciao Lisa,
    very attractive presentation. Not only is the old stylish boat contrasting nicely with the modern city behind but also the clouds seems so pleasantly smoothed as opposed to the crispy sharp other elements.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Danos,
    lovely city hall and a very nice presentation at the blue hour. I like the strange roof it makes an interesting effect here. It feels as if the left side was not entirely finished. Very unique design I believe.

    Hola Maria,
    it is often the case the people call something the best or the biggest etc and it appears to be not true, later they often add a phrase to correct it. I like the fact that contrary to other big cities you did not steal the obelisk from Egypt :)
    Very attractive presentation with the rain and some reflections in the wet road. It enhances the atmosphere. Having the poster of the player adds a nice context fixing the time when the photo was taken. I guess this must have been a very safe time to walk around as everyone was in front of TV unless all the police was watching the game as well.
    I guess you are not into football then :) me neither.
    Very well done,

    very impressive stitching work. The picture is crispy sharp. It has an atmosphere typical for a rain forest. Dark, wet with well saturated green tones.

    Czesc Piotr,
    bardzo ciekawy efekt z dobrze oswietlonym pierwszym planem i ciemniejszym dramatycznym tlem. Wyglada troche na filtr polowkowy. Swietnie uzyles rosliny na pierwszym planie, no i to odbicie bardzo dodaje uroku.
    Pozdrawiam serdecznie,

    Czesc Ryszard,
    bardzo atrakcyjny ratusz. Piekna pogoda swiatlo i kolory -wszystko jest tak bajecznie kolorowe. Czerwony bialy i niebieski bardzo ladnie do siebie pasuja. Ciekawa perspektywa: kamiennice wygladaja na bardzo bardzo malutkie w porownaniu z ratuszem.

    Hi Angshu,
    lucky TV people :)
    I had the pleasure to walk on the terraces -it was allowed at that time when you took off the shoes, I am not sure what is in the end more deleterious: people's dirty feet or shoes... Also you mentioned that upper hotels were removed but the problem are the hotels at the bottom which are redirecting the water to their pools and so advertise themselves. But the luck of water causes the terraces to dry out...
    Anyway it was not very clear to me what and why is forbidden. Russian tourists did not care about any prohibitions...

    Beautiful presentation and the walking people add some interest here helping to imagine the scale of this place. Interestingly you managed to get some more colors, I remember them being very white.
    In any case: very impressive!

    very attractive presentation, the light is quite challenging but adds a suitable here dramatic touch. I like the vegetation covered fence in the foreground, The clouds are very well emphasized as well.

    Czesc Krzysztof,
    wow, to robi ogromne wrazenie. Mielm kiedys przyjemnosc odwiedzic Budapest ale tak bardzo dawno temu ze wszystko pamietam jak przez mgle a co gorsza nie mam zadnych zdjec z tego miejsca.To zdjecie ktore pokazales to pierwsze ktore chcialbym zrobic wlasnie o blue hour. Budynek parlamentu jest chyba najpiekniejszym w Budapeszcie no i oczywiscie polozenie nad rzeka... az prosi sie o blue hour.
    Zwykle ludzie pokazuja to miejsce z gory tak wiec Twoja prezentacja jest nieco inna -bardziej oryginalna, dzieki temu jestes blizej powierzchni wody ktora dobrze tutaj widac. Szoda tylko ze byl wiatr i ze odbicie nie dopisalo, ale odbicie na rzece rzadko sie udaje. Doskonala ekspozycja z detalami fantastycznie wyraznyki i klarownymi. Przwdziwe dzielo sztuki! Bardzo chcialbym miec taka prace w swojej kolekcji!
    Pozdrowienia,

    Hi Abmdsudi,
    indeed, your story helps to appreciate the job which I have at the moment :)It is a very interesting presentation together with the portrait of the miner as well.
    The yellow sulphur rock goes well with the blue background. The scenery must have been fantastic but I would not like to have this job.
    Nice light with the sun emphasizing well the texture of the rocks.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Ike,
    photographing birds is a whole new area of photography. I have tried it a bit recently as the house which I rent is facing a park full of colorful birds. I have learned recently so many new names of birds and how to distinguish them, but again photographing them is quite a challenge, so I can appreciate your effort and the result. You have captured this one in a lovely environment full of flowers. It seems quite unique with the bluish head.
    Very well done,
    M

    PS I have checked and it seems to be a male.

    Hi Craig,
    I start to wonder if it is indeed a coincidence or you are searching for opportunities like this one. And just in case there is no model shooting around you always have your own model with you ;)

    Bonjour Didi,
    beautiful photo of nature. I like the clear and sharp foreground combined with a little fog starting behind the trees. Together with the colors typical for the season it contributes here to the feeling of autumn. Nice framing from above to cover the uniform sky and enhance the effect.
    Very well done,
