    Hi Carlo,
    I wild have guessed these to be a fine fountain or irrigation system, I would never have guessed a wash place for clothes! I suspect it is a long time since they were used for that purpose, they look a long time abandoned. An important historic place, well captured.

    Hi Costantino,
    This is a great shot, not only the fisherman but also the really unusual looking ship, which looks like a giant manta ray, or perhaps a giant spaceship which the fisherman is having a staring contest with :)
    The crashing waves on the shore give a great sense of movement to the view too, and the light is lovely.

    Hi Pedro,
    This is a nice urban scene, busy with many people, much traffic and all the large buildings. One thing I really like about this is the large billboard in the top left corner. I like seeing these urban scenes from round the world, this is a great busy one.

    Hi Omid,
    One of the things I love about seeing shots from all around the world is the fine variety of trees, and this thin one is a completely new species to me. The thing branches reaching into the air are some sight. Another beautiful sunny day too.

    Hi Agnes,
    This is a brilliant view of the cathedral, the central composition works really well to show the scale of the building and the light shows off the huge amounts of statuary o the facade so well. Th blue sky was great that day.
    Excellent note too, thanks for that. So many impressive records about this fine old cathedral.

    Hola Maria.
    Una gran instantanea, sobre todo para los aficionados al futbol, el graffiti, es muy alegre y bien ejecutado, ademas al incluir a este chico, con esos toque al balon, das mucha fuerza y vitalidad a esta imagen.
    También tanto la nitidez, como la iluminación están genial.
    Buen momento.
    Disfruta de un buen dia.
    Saludos muy cordiales.

    Hi Ourania,
    A fine minimal compositin, a simple subject and simple colors and it works very well, especially under this light. I have never seen a doorway set above the street level like this, and it looks like a significant height too. I wonder if this is due to a flood prone area, or perhaps just an architect with a humorous streak :) the dark interior of the building is a stark contrast to the bright light outside too, a refuge for a vampire perhaps!
    Thanks as always
    Noel

    Hello Ike.
    Another splendid image of the city in which we can see several towers and domes, I like the trees you see between the buildings.
    Nice color, in these natural tones.
    Also both sharpness, such as lighting are great.
    Well taken photo. I like it
    Enjoy a nice day.
    Best wishes.

    Hi Ray
    Like Ourania, the word tundra has always held a fascination for me, I grew up playing the pc game civilisation and tundra was always one of those magical landscapes. How cool that I see this tundra not in old fashioned 32 bit graphics with 8 colors, but in this perfect natural presentation which shows the fascination of the land so well. The clouds up above really add a lot to the scene too. Your landscapes are really something else.
    Cheers

    Hi Noel.
    Sensational POV which you have chosen to capture this church, open doors give more perspective to the construction, that the middle of the image, surrounded by the sky so dramatic, with dark clouds, gives a hint as to the mysterious image.
    The perfect gradation of gray to black, the B & W is doing very well to this type of image.
    Also both sharpness, such as lighting are great.
    Well taken photo. I like it
    Enjoy a nice day.
    Best wishes.

    Hello Abmdsudi.
    A stunning portrait of this woman with good POV, putting the figure at the side of the image, leaving the rest of the plane, in that dim light, highlighting more the figure, the red of his robes give a magnificent touch to the image, a thoughtful expression, with a deeper look.
    Nice color, in these natural tones.

    Hi Mariusz
    Nice to see this now having viewed your latest post, an excellent piece of history and a fine gift for two nations to share. This is a fine view of this excellent artistic work, and under perfect light. The blue sky behind is a great compliment to the tones of the wood structure
    Thanks again

    Hi Mariusz
    An impressive tomb, and quite unusual to my eyes too, I have never seen one on raisd columns like this. You comsed the scene beautifully and as mentioned above, the light is excellent, bringing such great color out across the view. That reflection on the shimmering water is such a bonus. Really lovely capture and great note, thanks!
    All the best

    Hi Burak
    Fantastic colors in this sky, and a much more pleasant and calm face to Ibiza than that I am used to seeing.no loud clubs and drunk people here, just father and sun enjoying this spectacular sunset moment and creating an excellent silhouette for your lens. Great shot.

    Hi Gigi,
    An excellent subject, the vivid bright reds do catch the eye as soon as I opened the gallery, and closer view makes the scene even more interesting as I try to work it out, as mentioned, hte inclusion of the silhouetted heads is nicely thought out giving depth and good composition to the whole.

    Hi Brian,
    Really cool way to create an awesome sense of height in the buildings, they really soar! It is great that they left these old cranes, as you say for an air AOf authenticity but also because they kind of look like dancing robots. Where else in the world could you enjoy a steak while the cast of transformers put on a cabaret show!

    Hi Kryzsztof
    Another beautiful piece of architecture from tis town, and this looks more like a small castle, a design that would always appeal to me. The red and yellow colors of he building look fantastic against the pale blue sky. I am really enjoying your series on Sopot.
