    Hi Chris,
    we see so many photos from other locations but not so many from Romanian capital. This is a beautiful architecture, and of course captured in splendid warm sunlight. What I find interesting is that the details of the temple are so rich and well done while at the same time on both sides there are those communist blocks of flats quite aged and damaged, they contrast interestingly here.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Ike,
    one more addition to your collection of murals. Different location this time.
    From the miniature I thought it is a real life scene, just after seeing the full view I realize it is all mural. I like it: there are so many vivid colors, and a street scene as a theme.
    Very well presented!

    Hi Costantino,
    lovely presentation of this extraordinary place. Although I have seen few places around Greece, this is something what I definitely have to visit yet.
    It is an amazing combination of fascinating rock formations and the unique architecture in such an inaccessible environment.
    Brilliant presentation.

    Hi Craig,
    fantastic presentation from this unique castle. I knew you will find your way to it sooner or later. I had the pleasure to visit is a while ago but I am not very happy with my photos. There were crowds of people everywhere and the sun was so strong. Here a tiny bit of clouds may have done a favour to you, so the contrasts are not that strong and details of the architecture are very well recorded.
    Great wide angle composition!

    Hi Abmdsudi,
    this is so beautiful! The reflection is almost perfect thanks to the very smooth surface. Very smart composition with the architecture mainly present in the reflection and the silhouettes of people at the top of the frame. Brilliant work. The girls seem to also have traditional clothes, adding some color. Nice geometry too with the columns providing extra shapes and lines.
    You have a great eye, excellent work,

    Bonjour Christiane,
    this is so pretty! I haven't been there for ages! I almost forgot how it looks like.
    Great point of view across the water. I like the partial reflection in the pond as well. Beautiful architecture captured in a great light. Very pleasant natural framing.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Serghei,
    very funny series of photos. This is so American here: not only the flag but also the Starbucks, and also fragment of the sign ONE WAY. Plenty of people appearing very focused on various activities. The boy on the bins is quite an extraordinary view. Are they so clean in NYC that one can rest on them indeed?
    Very well spotted!!

    Hola Luis,
    I had the pleasure to visit this attractive castle as well but probably about 17 years ago in the pre digital times... I think I didn't take any photos at all at that time.
    You have captured it from a great point of view from which the towers have nicely aligned from the highest to lowest. I like very much this stylish type of architecture.
    Beautiful spot, excellent presentation!

    Hi Chris,
    great composition with the boat being certainly attracting the most attention and the entrance to the water in the foreground. Having seen these little stairs in front of you here feels quite inviting to get in. Great blue sky and its reflection.
    Charming scene, very well spotted,

    Hi Bev,
    to be honest I always prefer color :)
    But what I particularly like in this view is the incredible clarity of the reflections on the train. It feels as if it was polished a second ago.
    Nice composition with the steam this time going opposite direction.
    Trains are quite photogenic, aren't they.
    Very well done!!

    Hi Pavle,
    very charming Orthodox church. I like in particular the yellow red stripes which make the church very eye catching especially when photographed in a great sunlight with blue sky as a background. Quite a unique style.
    Very picturesque spot, very well done!!

    Hi Ike,
    very creative composition from Edinburgh.
    Interesting touch with the leopard silhouette set against the old town buildings. The animal adds some more color and life as well, since Edinburgh alone is often quite dark.
    Very well spotted!!!

    Hi Mesut,
    amazing scenery. I like very much the arched bridge which reminds me the one in Mostar, Bosnia. The river is so attractive with plenty of rocks and lush vegetation around.

    Hi Leslie,
    wow this is really so beautiful!
    You have perfectly used the foggy day, it allowed you to nicely capture those overlapping diagonal lines of the hills.
    Amazing effect! I admire the very appropriate exposition here, I never manage to take anything useful under such challenging conditions.
    Breath taking!

    Hi Danos,
    I would never guess this is in Plitvice as well.
    What a charming place, I think this is a great spot for children. I was afraid that when I get there with my little daughter she may be bored but I see the rental boats would be certainly an attraction for her.
    Well photographed with the boat making a nice repeated motif, you have taken them from a great angle to align them nicely.
    Interesting brownish color tones.
    Excellent final effect!

    Hi Swapan,
    wow this is so beautiful! Very attractive waterfall and presented from a nice angle. You have well included the bridge, I think I would try to take it even wider since this is so picturesque.
    Nice pattern of the sky contributes to the decoration as well.
    Very well done!!
