    Hi Ryszard
    I like how this city scene looks like a piece from LEGO LAND :)

    everything looks so pristine and clean, no garbage or dirt to be seen at all, looks perfect.

    another fine looking city view from Wroclaw, excellent light and colors.
    cheers

    Hi Malgo
    as a dog lover, you know i'm going to enjoy this one, no matter how good or bad the photo quality is.

    funny to see the WS photo too, because usually we associate phone usage to younger people - just goes to show everyone does it.

    and it would be great to take some photos of the local men chatting on this bench.

    and its cute that the dog is looking straight at you too.

    cute shot, glad you posted it
    see you around

    Hi Christian
    I remember this scene from your last post.
    I'm still impressed that this building is still standing after all these years.

    its a very attractive scene with the blue sky so bright and the lighting overall. the shot has a relaxed feel to it, must be the man laying down like that :)

    excellent details in the stonework makes it a hit

    Hi Christian
    is this place even for real????
    it looks like something out of a Hollywood movie set, it just has that look to it.

    the lighting conditions were very harsh, the sky isn't exactly how you'd probably want it to be, but what could you really have done?? Its not your fault, its just that time of day when the sun is really hot.

    love the bottom portions, a lot of details and the dim light is quite attractive. of course the architecture is super charming, lots to like there
    cheers

    Hi Joginder
    now quite sure how you could improve on this one.
    Sometimes asking the person to move a little so they're on an angle, rather than straight on can be effective.
    However, that's always easier said than done, and I've taken several photos of people 'straight on' as well.

    the man is very captivating, lots to keep our eyes scanning him up and down and side to side.
    very interesting man to photograph.
    excellent choice and post
    cheers

    Hi Gerrit
    great to see you back on TE, always fun to see new photos when people get back from holidays.

    The Netherlands is famous for having very little height above sea level, and this is kind of what i'm seeing here too - very flat landscapes.

    a fine horizontally layered scene from left to right.
    thanks for this one, looking forward to more.

    Hi Daniel
    as much as we know the waterfalls and beautiful landscapes to be the classic Icelandic scenes, this is just as ICELANDIC.

    and probably more so to be honest, because as you say these geothermal powers have been used for centuries.

    really like the mossy touches and the colors in this dim light...excellent TE post overall.
    see you around

    Hi Pierre
    this would be a sweet car to own.
    perhaps i'd change the color of the top portion, but other than that she looks great.

    a sweet ride.

    Hi Daniel
    sounds great to me! I'm in!
    the best way to relax the evening away is to sit down and enjoy a meal of a cold beverage along those cafe's and restaurants - I can see myself there already!

    I wonder how the locals feel about having so many tourists directly below their home.

    sweet overview, excellent colors and lighting in this pov

    Hi Noel
    cool to have the castle in the bg, its an awesome secondary subject.

    same could be said for the man in the bg, his grumpy look suggests he's ready to go home lol

    fun photo of the days events, and even better that you still managed to fit a castle in there somewhere!

    Cheers

    Hi Piotr
    awesome shot here my friend, one of your best.
    its great how its full frame, all areas inside the box have interesting and attractive subjects.

    gotta love those clouds too, and the large trees.
    well composed, as it almost looks like you're laying in the tall grass.

    Hi Mariusz
    really like that you added in the panoromaic photo too, just to give us that overall look from far away.

    and as for people destroying in the name of their God, well, people can rationalize anything they want, to meet their own needs - which is 100% wrong.

    as for the photo itself, i personally like the 'lean' of towers, not everyone does.

    You could correct it in photoshop, but then sometimes it looks a bit off.

    to me this is more natural.
    crisp and clear image with the wide angle.
    see you around

    Hi Silvio
    I don't think we get to see many wide angle types of views from you, so this is a little bit of a surprise.

    have you shown this one to us before? not sure.
    but i like the way it looks in your presentation.
    lots of textures and details, but most of all i love the view.

    Hi Serge
    ah yes, the famous Grace Building.
    we don't usually see the reflections on the side like this, normally they're vertical - so its a nice change of pace.
    cool shot

    Impressive blue hour image, with great use of complementary colours and various focal points. I like the way the reflection of the mood leads the viewer's eye towards the yachts.

    I always like your "portraits" of various statues, especially the ones silhouetted against dramatic sky, They reveal something about the character of those sculptured not always visible in other photos.
