    Czesc Piotr,
    swietny efekt, nieziemska atmosfera! Kiedys kolega zrobil mi zdjecie w takim wlasnie momencie, powiekszylem je sobie 50x75cm ale juz troche podzolklo -poza tym nie jestem tam autorem ale modelem :)
    Swietnie zblizajace sie chmury, jeszcze troche i krawedz bedzie bardzo slabo widoczna... Obecnosc ludzi dodaje uroku i poczucia skali.
    Znakomita praca!

    Hi Gert,
    so you are afraid a bit as well to take pictures of young beautiful girls, ha?
    I think it may be quite dangerous indeed and one of the dangers for me is that my wife is jealous and she wouldn't like me to photograph other women. TrekEarth comes here to the rescue -I told my wife: although she is the most beautiful model -I cannot post her photos on TE -it is against the rules so I am forced to photograph other women just for the sake of interesting foreground :)
    Nice capture here, very well captured, I bet your photo is better than the one of this girl -she is pprobably too close..

    Hola Maria,
    I love the colors. I grew up in a communist block of flats, all of them were identically grey so having colors like here or in La Boca makes me happier.
    Very well done,

    Ciao Silvio,
    what a beautiful view! Amazing composition. The church tower is so pretty, the sky so lovely decorated.
    I admire the well balanced exposition of the snow covered hills in the very center. The mountain view is the highlight here of course. Nicely selected flowery foreground too.
    Excellent work, everything well thought through.

    Hallo Wolfgang,
    amazing sharpness, we can admire the tiniest detail of this beautiful tower. I had the pleasure to visit this lovely place as well. Great POV here to present the tower in all its glory.

    Czesc Maciej,
    zwyczajna codziennosc dla Ciebie a dla mnie atrakcja turystyczna.
    No tak kiedys tez mieszkalem w atrakcyjnych turystycznie miejscach ale to bylo przed epoka cyfrowa i moim zaangazowaniem w TE. Teraz jakos los rzuca mnie w mniej interesujace mniejsca...
    Wspaniala pocztowkowa prezentacja! Swiatlo trudne, tj cokolwiek jest oswietlone -wyglada przyjemnie cieplo ale tez sporo jest cienia. Nie mniej -najwazniejsze obiekty sa dobrze oswietlone.
    Ten kociol ma w sobie jakas wyjatkowa elegancje.

    Hi Ana,
    another excellent reportage. I sometimes think about the rural lifestyle in Poland which I remember from me as a child visiting family in the countryside. I think nobody live in that way anymore. I wonder if there are events which would celebrate those old rituals as they were before. In any case it is a fantastic story and so beautifully told with your high quality reportage photos.
    Excellent work,

    wspaniala fotografia blue hour. Tamto zdjecie zrobione za dnia bylo doskonale -tutaj dodatkowo dochodzi jeszcze efekt wieczornej romantycznej atmosfery. Rownie perfekcyjne wykonanie, znakomity balans ekspozycji -niebo nie moglo byc lepsze.
    Nic dodac nic ujac. Ale Ci zazdroszcze ze mieszkasz w turystycznie atrakcyjnym miejscu z tyloma mozliwosciami do blue hour!

    Bonjour Christiane,
    spectacular sky indeed. I like the colors and shapes here. You composed it perfectly with including some nice silhouettes and placing the clouds diagonally in the frame. Nice contrast of the hot clouds and the colder sky.

    Czesc Malgorzata,

    nie musialas sie mna sugerowac. Ja tu do Twojej galerii lubie zagladac bo wiem ze wklejasz zdjecia jeszcze cieple, taki rodzaj bloga. A wiec jest to sposob zeby zobaczyc co u Ciebie slychac :)
    Z drugiej strony i tak nie mam czasu nawet skometowac wsyzskich Twoich zdjec. Jestes zbyt produktywna :)
    Ladne kolorki -dobrze wypatrzone. Najbardziej mi sie podobaja te malutkie bardziej stylowe w centrum zdjecia. Takie wlasnie male kolorowe drewniane domki mi sie kojarza z Norwegia.
    Interesujaco to wyglada ja jakies klocki..

    wow this is so beautiful! I like very much the well saturated natural colors. The green is so intense! Sky so well polarized!
    The houses seem to have a consistent style, it results in a pleasant final effect.

    Hi Craig,
    It is indeed an interesting composition. With the houses it is often true that the more damaged the more photogenic. The colors are quite extraordinary.

    We have some things in common like the weakness for blue hour photography but also we have also quite a different taste for destinations as you pointed out recently on the occasion of me presenting a beach.
    As much as I would love to visit spectacular landscapes of Norway I would hesitate now to go to India.
    It is recently appearing as one of the least safe places for tourists. There are frequent reports of sexual assault on foreigners. Some places I did not mind to visit alone but I would not like to take my wife there. Now with my daughter even more places are off the list. The risk is too high.

    I see you must have gone a lot off the beaten track and this is exactly where the bad incidents in India happen. When the European woman was gang raped and her husband heavily injured -Indian police commented that it is their fault as they went off the beaten track.
    So some places I prefer to watch in other people photos rather than being there myself. One more reason to be on TE :)

    You are asking if local people are aware of how photogenic their town is... I think short term as a tourist walk with a camera -this appears as an interesting place to be, however if you really think about person who lives in this house. Well it is first of all quite dirty. Heavily damaged. It is in fact a slums like area. I don't think local people really enjoy living under such conditions. I am not saying that they cannot be happy but if someone was proud of this place I would rather guess this person is crazy.

    Nevertheless I see your point: it is quite photogenic for tourists from the western world as such poverty is something different than things they are used to.

    Have a great weekend,

    czy to w tym kosciele schowane jest serce Szopena?
    Wspaniala pocztowkowa prezentacja. Doskonale swiatlo! Takie cieple i przyjenne. Niebo delikatnie czasami musniete sladami chmurek. Bardzo ladnie to wyglada ze sama ulica jest rowniutko w cieniu (pomimo ze zakreca) a oswietlona czesc zaczuna sie od tych przyjemnych klombow. Lampy dodaja eleganckiej dekoracji.
    Pamietam to miejsce, wydaje mi sie ze jadlem kolacje ze znajomymi w jakiejs restauracji albo przy tym placu albo gdzies bardzo blisko...

    Hi Costantino,
    what a lovely composition. Greek people must have a great sense of design and beauty. It is quite characteristic to see those simple yet so charming compositions found on little streets or corners. Using minimal number of decorative elements you are guys able to compose something eye catching.
    This composition here is one more example of it.

    tak rzeczywiscie: jesli edytuje sie 20sty komentarz to usmieszek znika. To nie dotyczy innych -mozna edytowac spokojnie 1-19 komentarz danego dnia ale 20sty jesli go wyedytujesz to usmieszek znika -nawet jesli przed edytowaniem tam byl :)

    Niesamowity efekt tutaj z tymi chmurami wlewajacymi sie z lewej strony. Odbicie jest jeszcze super klarowne -znaczy ze wiatru nawet nie bylo.
    Piekna asymetryczna kompozycja i super ciekawe kolory natury. Niebo ma interesujace wzory a skaly wygladaja nieco zielonkawo. Wspaniale swiatlo!
    Doskonala praca.

    Moj kuzyn zginal w Tatrach. Pozostawil dwojke malych dzieci. Razem z moim bratem chodzili po gorach i pogoda nagle dramatycznie sie zmienila. Zleb zamienil sie w rwaca rzeke ktora go porwala... Takie wiec atrakcyjnie wygladajace chmury -znak zmieniajacej sie pogody -moga byc smiertelnie niebezpieczne...
