    Hi Gy

    Great to have this cantor praeses as my neighbor today! A well worked image, I like how the singer's face is lit up and great sharpness/details on the symbols and signs on the jacket. A fine one, this!

    Cheers

    A creepy scene! But a very fascinating image.
    I like the flatness of the picture too.
    Thanks for sharing it here.

    Hello Vikramdev

    Quiet and serene, a great composition. The clouds are terrif, the central tree too and then there's that lonely tea picker. Terrific!

    Bonjour Serge

    Lots of distortion to light up the scene. Technically this a problem, but on the other it creates a strange, eerie atmosphere, a bit ghost-like...and that effect is just superb! So I end up really liking this one.

    Hello Malgo

    A bit hazy (as most of the time in China), but it didn't turn out too bad, did it? Good use of the greenery to frame the scene. Very ancient-Chinese-poetry-like.

    Thanks for the interesting and useful links to the lift. I didn't know about that particular contraption :)

    Hi Craig

    This is a stunner. The classic poster-type image, made timeless by the old masters of photography, I'm sure you know the shot I mean (the name of the famous photographer escapes me righ tnow).

    Thanks for the bike reflection in the WS, but this one just is so much better, of course!

    Congratulations!!

    That's three great waterfall pictures in a row, and they're all very different. A fine series! Good low light on the red rocks here.

    Hello Mariusz

    Great sky, light below on the harsh earth is very hard, but I guess you didn't have time to wait there for a couple of extra hours, it looks rather hot.

    I was just reading about Humboldt (who climbed the mountain) and Darwin (who wanted to copy him).

    Cheers

    Mooie diepe kleur in de weerspiegeling, John. De wereld onder water lijkt boeiender dan die erboven hier! Ik wist niet dat er een plaatsje was dat "Sifon" heet, wel grappig.

    Groetjes, geniet van een zonnig weekend

    a última vez que vi essa cena foi num canto remoto e pobre do centro do PR. isso era comum nos meus tempos de criança, mas desapareceu à medida em que a miséria foi diminuindo.
    gostei da maneira como vc usou as personagens e suas silhuetas em primeiro plano com a água do rio iluminada. bem feito.

    azaleas are very usual in gardens of southern brazil and the church square of my town had lots of them, unfortunately they were removed.I never had imagined to see them wild in nature as you showing them for us. very beautiful and colorful panorama.

    Hello Gert,

    It is difficult to something new from this monumenty from Berlin. I was impressed by it and I liked the simplicity of it. I wouldn't go to Auschwitz to see the realistic views. But we must have imagination. In Yad Vashem it is memorial for the children murdered in Holocaust - something like a tent and the candles reflected by many mirrors, and a voice reading the names - also very simple and very moving.
    I like the main upload most - geometry and reflection.

    Yes. I saw in Google that this minaret was destroyed. No words for this barbarity. Will humanity never learn from the past?
