    Witaj MAlgo,
    nice the first uploaded photos from Cuba with the children to take photos on the mini carriage.I like their expression with the older people to sit on the benches enjoying the moments.

    Hi Ana
    What a great festival and great to see another view of these elaborate masks, I can see by looking at them that they are made by artists, they are so detailed. They are also a little bit creepy which for me is a good thing, I like all things creepy :)

    Hi Abmdsudi
    The new day brought such beautiful color, good and blue, the colors of royalty displayed in the heavens. Having the moon in the view also adds a very special something, the night fights an impossible battle against the rising sun. You caught the sense of tranquillity really nicely

    Hi Nicolas
    The choice of black and white is really nicely chosen and makes the most even more intense. This could easily be the cover for a book or a movie, it has a very special mood.

    Hi Ken
    Very nice building and a style I don't see much, we don't have much queen Anne style in Ireland. The light was very nice on the building to allow you to capture some beautiful architectural details

    Hi Pierre
    That's a nice condo. It must be nice to live so close to the water, it looks like a rather exclusive place. The light and shadows add a nice element to your photo

    Hi Takero
    I really like the motion blur you caught here, it gives a real sense of energy and excitement, exactly what we expect from samba! Great that this girl is making such intense eye contact too, and that green colour is very regal. Love this shot

    Hello Abmdsudi

    Blue and yellow always works as a contrast and is attractive to the eye. Very well exposed foreground too with enough detail of the buildings coming through the shadows. Sharp and noise free - always difficult in low light. Well done.

    Cheers

    Hello Serge

    A nicely composed image with graduated layers from dark to light giving depth and dividing the image into graphic shapes. A shot that it would be so hard to expose right but you have managed it very well here.

    cheers

    Hello Bev

    I like the use of the wall as a line and I like how the line of trees dips down. Together these two factors divide the shot into distinct areas of light an dark creating graphic structure and shape in doing so.

    The icy winds of the polar north do indeed make the place feel more than a little monochrome - even when the sun shines, the high contrast from a sun hanging low in the sky shining directly at you renders the world monochrome at various points throughout the day. Makes it hard to take decent images!

    Cheers

    Y indeed! Nice graphically composed overhead shot. The steps give texture as do the roof tiles. I like it - I would not ask why - I would say why not!

    Hello Gert

    Yes - I suppose of the three images this one is compositionally the best and provides the human presence required for street images. It tells a story in a more immediate sense, a story amplified by the title. That's not to say that street images with no people present have little to say. I liked the third image that you originally contemplated for posting. There is a contrast between 'anticariat' (antique store in Romanian I believe) and the ice cream stall. The old dated book stall that in the digital age some might argue is a thing of the past - I carry about 40 books around on my tablet with me but I can only read one at a time, though I tend to dip in and out of various books unless its a book of fiction. Then the ice cream stall - an age of leisure suggested but no one joining in at that stall either - quite a tension and a comment on cultural change in a subtle way - for me a far stronger message than the mere search for knowledge from yesteryear which may well be irrelevant today.

    A thought, provoking series of images! Thanks for sharing - take care.

    Cheers

    Hello Ike,
    nice the panoramic view of this section of the end of Rhine with the castle to overlooking the area through the verdant hill.I like the contrast of the colours with the houses in front of the riverside to make the image even more effective.

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    great the colour tints of the dawn with the colourful reflections to spread all over the calmly surface of the sea.The dark silhouettes of the land and the constructions on it enhance even more the contrast as the beauty of the scenery.Well done.
