    Hello Craig,

    A vertical format works well here, accentuating the verticality of the scene. I can imagine how daunting a task it would have been to lay siege here, Macbeth ordering his troops to charge ahead. Excellent shot.

    Hello Bev,

    The countryside is selectively bathed in sunlight, suggesting a giant brush at work. It's a beautiful shot.

    As for the slope, is that 4:1 or 1:4. The former corresponds to 75° and the latter to 14°.

    Warm regards, Bev,

    Hi Serge
    beauty, love this Hotel.
    its a great looking view you have, too bad the sky was a bit hazy, but all you really need to do is add a bit of contrast.
    still looks fantastic in my books though.
    really like the orange colour against all the blues and greens
    cheers

    Hi Krzysztof
    you were recently in Malta???? thats fantastic, I was there not too long ago as well. I'm looking forward to viewing all of your photos from there, and i'm curious to know where and what you visited.

    here we have a slim wide angle shot with 2 tones of blue, I like that, especially the royal blue along the bottom. Too bad there aren't any clouds to add, but thats not your fault.

    fine city shot, brings back alot of good memories.
    cheers

    HI Angel
    Austria, this is a country thats on my to visit list for sure.
    and isn't it great when you visit a place because you've seen it on TE, just like what you have done here.

    it would be wonderful to be able to go inside this place, I wonder how it looks. it has a very charming and photogenic outer appearance. the UP pov works well, and the green trees in the bg help to balance off the colours. nice one.
    cheers

    Hi Takero
    haha, yes, its easy to see why you'd want to post this one.
    the facial expressions are priceless, especially with the girl on the bottom right corner :)
    she's not looking too happy is she.
    lovely collection of children in their colourful outfits.

    Hi Lucas
    this is a very unique subject to post on TE, something we don't get to see very often at all, so this is a bonus.
    that start light on the far left is a sweet addition, as is the blue hour lighting on the sky on the left.
    compliments on the exposure and lighting.

    Hi Malgo
    99 towers, thats alot! I would just have to take their word for it I suppose, too many to count.

    Its good that you have the steep roofline going straight up to the corner of the frame, that's important.
    and I really like that dark red colour, its the same colour as my car haha

    this is my favorite view you've posted so far.

    Hello Chris,

    This is a spectacular capture of the light and colors of Thessaloniki's harbor. Moreover, like a weather report, you've posted the photo the day you took it, revealing the local weather. The city is where my grandfather, and his buddy Ataturk, were both born in 1881. I visited Ataturk's home in 2006, and also the mound grave of Philip of Macedon. The Turkish name for the city Selanik.

    Warm regards,

    From composition and colors to the frame, you've done a superb job in presenting this village scene from Austria. Such variegated and rich assortment of flowers. Well done,

    Hello Piotr,

    What a classic scene, with the small chapel in the foreground the rolling valleys and hills, and in the distant the magnificent mountain. The yellow flowers add highlight color to the overwhelmingly lush green scene.

    Hello Ike,

    The old relic is a good reminder of the hard life of our ancestors, but, of course, they felt the same way about their ancestors with horses and oxen pulling plows. There is good contrast here between a newer model with the massive treaded tires in distinction to this solid wheel model.

    Hello Danos,

    You captured the harbor of Poros with all its majesty both here and in the larger version. As the end of summer approaches, we are going to miss the warm weather, but Poros will retain its appeal. Excellent note as always.

    Hi Murat
    That's fishy tale!!! Very good catch when the eye popping colour takes you right there to main focal of interest, load of fish and a good choice of pov. I really enjoy this as a pattern shot and there is something wonderfully soothing about this image and those guys are vital element too nicely placed in the composition. I like the mixed of artificial lighting, sense of depth and dynamic angular touch. Great 'street' shot and tx to the informative notes. Congrats
    Best regards

    Bonjour Roland,

    I have seen the exterior of the Church of the Resurrection, but this is the first time I am seeing a photo of the magnificent mosaics of in the interior. It's a difficult shot, but a successful one.

    Bonjour Serge,

    You have many newer photographs but I like best this iconic scene with sheep in the foreground, a veritable classic. Unfortunately, I have never visited Mont Saint Michel but hope very much to see this scene in person. Perfect!

    Ciao Luciano,

    The photo and the note are perfect. I like being introduced to something new, and Piazza Gae Aulenti is new for me. But what I like best is the Rosetta Stone like note in English and Italian that I can use to improve my broken Italian.

    Hello Claude,

    Like Gert, I had not heard of Ripolin before, but the circumstance of the photo, the composition is amusing and endearing. I suspect that is the mother along with two daughters, or a mother along with a daughter and her friend.

    Hello dear Malgorzata,

    Whenever Carol Jean hears someone say "Bulent is such a good photographer," she feels compelled to straighten them out, "You should see our friend Malgorzata's photos." Nine years, where did the years go. And I joined a year before you, but you rapidly overtook me in quantity and quality. Is the dark side of the round tower the North Side, where moss grows as on trees where ultraviolet light does not kill it as effectively.

    Warm regards,

    Fascinating set of statues with two of them appearing to bury their heads in the sand. The lush vegetation, however, is the overwhelming star in this scene from South East Brazil.
