    Hi John,
    how is it even possible that I have right away spotted the tiny ad of the underwear?
    Anyway I wonder if it was included on purpose. There is so much going on here. I like the column itself. It really motivates me to go to London again as I was there long time ago in pre-digital times.
    May be next year...
    Very original presentation from this famous square!

    Hi Claude,
    one more fantastic bird photo. They are extremely difficult to do well I can fully appreciate it as I have tried it a bit. Bird photography is probably the most challenging of all kinds.
    Nice captured here with its reflection and with a nice pose.
    Very well done!!

    Hi Bev,
    beautiful house and lovely garden. It seems like a wonderful place for a walk. You really travel across the whole country covering most of the counties on the UK map. I learn so much about Britain and get inspiration for my trips. Nice angle chosen here, this would make a fantastic postcard, exactly as I love it!

    Hi Craig,
    as you know I like postcards so for me this is the best presentation ever. I like the frontal symmetry, everything perfectly straight. People provide a sense of scale but don't disturb at all. Lovely weather, great colors.
    Perfect!

    Ciao Luciano,
    I was wondering why chemical elements in the Russian pavilion but indeed the periodic table of chemical elements was assembled together by Mendeleev who was Russian.
    Lovely design here indeed, I have never visited an Expo exposition in person, it must be very interesting experience.
    Thanks for the reportage!

    Hi Brenda,
    great composition, it works quite surprising by having two levels. The one in the reflection above includes as well the famous yellow cabs. Well the bottom one as well but from a different angle.
    Great idea and perfect realization.
    You have a great eye!

    Hi Angel,
    I had a pleasure to visit your town during Feria del Caballo as well. I have several pics of the ladies in those wonderful colorful dresses however I am always shy taking photos of other people especially beautiful girls so my photos of them are not well composed.
    I like here the group of the ladies which all have similar design of the dress, very well spotted!
    Very attractive picture!

    Hi Ney,
    nice perspective from above which allowed you to take in several interesting structures. I can spot also the famous fountain further in the distance.
    Lovely lesser known view of this interesting city!

    Hi Gerrit,
    I just came back from all inclusive holidays and I may have gained some weight as well... fortunately or not I cannot afford to do it too often so I guess I won't get overweight after all :)

    This is quite spectacular picture. I live the amazing colors with the sky appearing as if on fire. The dark areas make a great contribution especially the silhouettes of palm trees set against the water.

    Very impressive work!

    Bonjour Serge,
    this is such a beautiful building and I cannot believe that I never seen it before! You have captured it beautifully set against the lovely sky. Great well saturated and natural colors. Nice side light which added shades and three dimensional effect

    Hi Noel,
    I remember photographing this detail as well however I did not think about combining it with the Four Courts in the distance. Fantastic composition the detail makes a wonderful foreground and the Four Courts makes a strong point along the riverside. Great depth of the field, very impressive!
    Excellent work!!!

    Hi Ann,
    I like this one very much The clarity is amazing! I like the multiple horizontal layers including the wet beach. You captured the people with interesting poses and funny how their reflections at first do not seem to much with the reality. Nice geometry. Very well seen and captured!

    Hi Daniel,
    ha ha -I have just uploaded a photo with a girl in colorful clothes. I guess people may add some interest and or color to the scene -making it much more interesting. Here the shirt of the girl goes very well with the fragments of the architecture.
    Very well spotted and captured!

    Hi Stephane,
    fantastic presentation and now it seems these photos are so invaluable! I have watched recently some earthquake movies recorded by CCTV cameras over there and I believe I may have seen this temple on the left being damaged but I may be wrong.
    It looks so beautiful in your picture here with the street being crowded with the amazing temples. Plenty of people too. At least you were lucky to see it before the tragedy and record beautifully for us here.
    Excellent work!

    Czesc Malgorzata,
    uwielbiam pocztowki i ta tutaj bardzo mi sie podoba. Ta wieza jest bardzo charakterystyczna i pewnie mozna ja znalezc na kazdej pocztowce ze Sieny. Bardzo ladnie ja pokazalas w kontekscie placu i czerwonych dachowek.
    Wydaje mi sie ze Ty juz wczesniej bylas w tych miejscach. Ja jeszcze nie a wiec pewnie skupilbym sie na najwiekszych turystycznych atrakcjach. Ty majac wiecej czasu mozesz sobie pozwolic na wielkie i male rzeczy.
    Siene ocywiscie zaliczylbym do tych wiekszych atrakcji...
    Pozdrowienia

    Hi Jean Claude,
    beautiful spring composition with the yellow blooming fields. You have explored the theme very well with the motif of the road in between and the lovely trees providing well saturated green tones.
    It feels full of light and relaxing,

    Hi Bev,
    One more interesting presentation from Northumberland. I have already several spots in this county on my list of places to visit, among them Alnwick Castle near from this one, which I also did not visit yet. Waiting for better weather though, which may never come this year anymore....
    Beautiful work, really encouraging to visit,

    You had a lovely light over there, although it may have lasted just few moments. The structure is nicely lit and the dark clouds provides a great contrast.

    Hi Manuel,
    lovely composition. It seems to be well thought through. I the arch makes a nice framing but also a pleasant curve. I like how you have placed the half moon at the very top of clearance under the arch.

    Hallo Wolfgang,
    beautiful palace. I like the decorative architecture. I thought it will be Spain. The sky is quite spectacular with the dark cloud approaching from one side and the other side being so pleasantly blue.
    Excellent work!
