    Hi Ally
    You have an interesting angle on it there and the imaginative artistic sculptured rock makes a profound strong look as main feature in backdrop - being part of the whole garden. I like thinking of its interesting history too and thanks to your narratives. A perfect blue sky background drenched in the angled light and shadows creating a fine view and contrast well which also has the lovely colours. The visitors just enhance the total liveliness boosting the visual effect of the place. Excellent shot with interest and content. Congrats and tfs.
    Best regards

    Hallo Rob,

    I like the distorted reflections in the shiny pillar at left. Good sharpness and some further fantastic reflections in the ceiling. The blue at the top sets up a warm cold color contrasts with the warmer yellow green tones. Tfs!

    Bonjour, mon ami Lars,

    The warm colors of the tower contrast well with the blue sky to give a superb warm cold color contrast. Good sharpness and nice fg reflections in the water. Tfs!

    Hello Nicolas,

    An unusual wine barrel house that reminds me of the old lady who lived in a shoe nursery rhyme. The fg yellow green grass contrasts well with the blue shadows and sky. Good sharpness and tight framing. Tfs!

    Hello Ike,

    It's nice to see these flowering jacaranda trees, a native of South America, flowering here too. There also do well in east coast Australia and flower in October rather than April. Good sharpness and color. Tfs!

    Bonjour Jean,

    The lighthouse makes an obvious focal point. The concrete causeway provides diminishing linear perspective and strong lead in lines converging towards the back. Tfs!

    NYC is famous for some of its quirky street performers and this one is just as offbeat an entertaining and amusing in his own way. Good sharpness and nice to catch some spectators at left. Tfs!

    Hello Murat,

    These scale models remind me of similar ones in Topkapi Palace in Istanbul. They are difficult to photograph with their shiny reflections and people almost always milling around them. Good result here. Tfs!

    Hi Craig

    People in many countries that live, work and were born & grew up there often fail to see the beauty that surrounds them and usually see their towns as boring and lacking culture. But that simply isn't true. Folks become blase and don't appreciate what they have. Nearly every city has at least something to see. That's demonstrated amply here. Tfs!

    Hello, Malgo!

    Lately there has been a trend for less sugar and more cocoa in chocolate with a dark variety of up to 70% rather than the usual 30% in milk chocolate. Nice to see where the cocoa comes from. Tfs!

    You might have to give me some tips on high altitude photography. You consistently get great results. The fg trees and the distant forest below add depth and layering to the composition. Tfs!

    Hi Serghei,

    London is even further away from Australia than Moscow, and its a city I've always wanted to see. It was high on my bucket list in my first trip around Europe in 2013. The iconic Elizabeth Tower and Big Ben are instantly recognizable landmarks. Tfs!

    Hi John
    how did I miss this one?
    Looking at this scene, it reminds me once again that perhaps I should expand my photographic horizons and looks for similar scenes.

    the final result is awesome. The star of the show has to be the man on the far right, his expression is priceless.

    and i like that the man on the bottom left is looking directly at him as well. Real men in a Real situation.
    I'm sure Gert loves it! haha

    Hi Olivier
    haha...this is the type of scene that is very true to my heart. I love taking photos of buildings looking up on steep angles, just like the one you have here.

    your shot is Dramatic, has fine angles, has excellent colour contrast, and that sky is the perfect backdrop, Wouldn't change anything about it
    cheers

    I find it hard to resist looking at these Las Vegas scenes, i'll stop and check it out every time :)

    cool that we can see the new Wheel popping out of the top of the Venetian in the bg. love all these buildings and the lighting. Wish I was here now :)
