    Hello Nicolas,

    I like he meandering stream leading down to the steely grey ocean. The minimalist colours and diffused light work well here. Tfs!

    Hi Mesut
    The cycle repeats itself and that 's the beauty of nature and a lovely reminder of what is to come.....
    It's an interesting close shot - corn cobs hung under the eaves of a house, looks like some nice colour & shapes going on there. A nicely balanced image well spotted and captured. Congrats
    Best regards

    Hello Denis

    A lovely beach scene with good sharpness and color. The water looks more like the Cote D'Azure than the North Sea or Atlantic Ocean. The people add scale. Tfs!

    Hello Rob,

    Interesting graphics with the blue black white and grey colors with just the sleeping figure in very bright colors. Superb sharpness and well framed and composed. Vertical format was a good choice. Tfs!

    Bonjour Serge,

    The building at right resembles a British building, akin to Westminster. Good control over the wide angled lens barrel distortion by placing the central vertical line in the middle. Tfs!

    Hello Alexandre

    I guess people keep rabbits as pets too as well as eating them, but guinea pigs are only kept as pets in most non South American countries. Technically very good with excellent use of a shallow dof and good composition and tight framing. Tfs!

    The white highlights of the large fluffy cloud are certainly eyecatching. Good sharpness and the lone yacht and swimmer make excellent focal points. Tfs!

    Hi Gert
    As always... well observed and timed! I've seen 2, ok, maybe even three people trying to get on the same bike before, but not four.
    I like your choice of format which enabled you to include the boys' "natural environment" which is the block in the background with so typical combination of atributes: drying washing and a satelite dish. I've seen a lot of blocks in my travels and no block is ever complete without a satelite dish.
    I'd read the note to your last upload before I opened this one. It always surprises me that people automatically associate disorder and mess with "communism" and "post-communism". I would rather ask: "Some 20 years after the end of communism and why does it look so awful? Maybe it was not the communism that was the real issue?" And in how many countries that have never had anything to do with communism you can observe scenery like this?
    Anyway, excuse my late-evening ranting... Great shot!
    Best wishes
    Kasia

    Hi Luciano
    haha, is that a man carrying a tripod on the far right, the man wearing the red jacket - that man would be me! :)

    effective composition to have the people on the bottom, tightly squeezed into the frame while the large downpour of water comes crashing down.

    wicked shot!

    Hi Rob
    excellent post. I always say its important to look UP, but also go GET up high and look DOWN! these are views we don't get to see with our naked eye very often.

    what's best here is how the water has turned the bricks into a darker shade of red, i love that. and its funny how there are a few kids spread out laying on the ground. awesome views all around

    Hi Mike
    good idea to include the ol boat in the fg, good to shake it up a bit right? and I like how the ropes are thrown around like somebody just doesn't care.

    The vertical comp works well here because its easily fills up the entire frame, no wasted or dead spaces here.
    I'd love to see this place in person, looks very photogenic.
    excellent shot all around my friend
    cheers

    Hi Lisa
    always a good day when we get to see a new post from ya.

    I love it when we can see the shadows of clouds on the landscape like this, thats always a bonus.
    and I also like those short stone fences which we see here too. As Bev pointed out, I wonder how this place looks in full bloom of autumn. sweet landscape views which go on for a long long while. thanks for this one!

    Hi Daniel
    I didn't even notice it until now, I didn't see the Duomo right away.

    and of course there has to be a FIAT parked on the street side too haha

    there's a cool ambience and mood to your shot, its dark and its light at the same time. The Duomo is acting as if its trying to hide in secret :)

    Hi Gy
    another cool looking take on city life.
    reminds me of taking photos up high in Paris at the Notre Dame. and I know you like black and white, but it would also be fun to see these in the coloured version too.
    effective views because its a mix and mash of old vs new construction. sweet pov

    Hi Malgo
    ah...now I see it! Thanks to the Beta site version, that site is so much better than this one.

    as you say, I'm glad you posted it because I want to see more of this US city, we don't see much of it here on TE.

    and that WS photo with the long bridge, you should post that as a main post, but thats just my opinion.

    funny to see the monument on the right, strange indeed.
    much appreciated city view!
    cheers

    Hi Ryszard
    as much as I love old buildings and history, I also enjoy these more modern styles - especially when you have them IN cities with old buildings. Its a great city contrast from the norm.

    Reading your note, its easy to understand why there are so many modern buildings in Trento.

    love that orange colour splash, thats important for contrasting the blues. nice shot
    cheers

    Hi Ike
    I know its not 100% sharp and clear, but then again not every photo we take can be right! A few of my last posts haven't been sharp. But really, who cares in the big scheme of things, its still a wonderful looking city shot. These are the views that we don't get to see often enough. and looking at your previous shots, the wheel changes colour which is cool too. thanks for this one
