    Witaj Aleksander,

    I like the graphism in eye catching, especially the "X." It would have also been interesting, if you had made this a time exposure, keeping the escalator in perfect focus, while a few riders were seen blurred on the escalator.

    Warm regards,

    Hi Arunava
    yes, I remember this place well.
    its unforgettable.
    good for you to ride out onto the water to get this shot.
    the lighting is soft and exposed very well.
    wouldn't change anything to the compo or the subject.
    nice shot
    cheers

    Hi Mesut
    wow, now thats a bridge!
    looks like a fun bridge to walk across.
    love the large open arc especially taken from the bottom of it.

    my favorite subject i've seen on TE today!

    Hi Pedro
    what a difference that blue sky makes, it really helps to make the Cathedral stand out - makes a great visual impact
    strong compositional shot with a majestic and formal subject.
    well shot

    Hi Luciano
    another fun photo from Cuba!
    as with your previous photo, its all about the high point of view you took it from.
    its almost as if you're about to jump into the water as well :)
    Fun photo with the cultural activities.

    Hello Constantino,

    With the rugged stones everywhere, on the street and the walls of the houses Makrinitsa must be such a pleasure to just walk around and explore. The flowers add highlight to the gray hues of the stones. Well composed with a judicious selection of a vertical format.

    Hi Chris,

    This is just about the best example of upheaval in landmass created by plate tectonics. The striations are all parallel, and orthogonal to the slope of that hill on the left. Fabulous! I've sailed within the territorial waters of Albania, but never walked on shore.

    Warm regards, Chris,

    Hello Ann,

    The light is perfect on this rugged terrain, but the focal point is the red cupola. You've managed to put it at 63.8% from the left, better than the 66.6% (but not quite the 61.8% of the golden ratio. I remember when you visited the area. What a wealth of you must have in your collection.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Silvio,

    The wisps of clouds add additional atmosphere to the expansive panorama. I've seen the magnificent Dolomites from the air, but never from ground level (in this case from high ground). Warm regards,

    Hi Karolina
    gotta like this one.
    classic post card type of presentation.
    and of course when you could add in the clouds in the upper bg it makes it that much more attractive.

    my favourite building here has to be that pink colored home in the lower fg, looks kind of rustic and weather beaten.
    clear and bright shot

    Hi Danos
    easy to like this shot.
    its all about the pov, the height you took it from looking almost straight down.

    and of course the combination of the strong white against the blue makes it very attractive indeed.

    Hi Stephen
    pinks and reds aren't color combinations we see too too often, but its certainly an attractive one - but not one I'd think of right away.

    clear and sharp presentation, well exposed in these lighting conditions.

    Oh I know where this shot was taken from! haha
    great to see it in the summer months with all those colors and water reflections too.

    too bad these sweet weather conditions couldn't be there every day and all the time!

    love your photo today!

    Hi Alexandre
    you can't beat a subject like this one.
    we don't see many like this here on TE so it easily puts a smile on my face.

    I really like the rustic look of the photo with the overcast conditions, steam and fog rolling in.
    all it does is make the steam train stand out even more.
    excellent choice they made with the reds and blacks too.
    cool post

    Hi Brenda
    we can always count on you to show us whats new in NYC.

    I think it won't take long before everyone refers to this new hub as the ZIPPER! Love it!

    looking at the ws photo, there seems to be some brown disscoloration already forming on the white sections of the structure...whats with that! Its the kind of thing you see that forms in your shower if you don't clean it lol

    as for the main photo here, it took my brain some time to formulate what the heck was going on! but it all clicked in soon enough. Personally, i quite like the zipper, it could also resemble a Whale's Fin - don't you think?

    thanks for the update!
    cheers

    Hi Chris
    I picked this photo from your gallery because the blue colors in those waters jumped off the screen, more so than the other recent pics.

    Oh to be rich enough to own a Yacht! Not having to worry about the cost and expenses that go along with it.

    gotta love those blues again, mother nature at her best
