    Hi Miguel
    that's an impressive cathedral, Layer upon layer of construction creates a very impressive place. Really nicely done to capture the whole of this large structure in your shot, and under very fine light and color. Great photo job, thanks fit sharing

    Bonjour Roland,

    On a dull day, you have enlivened the whole shot with colourful and very well placed water hydrant.
    A very well composed shot with excellent guides and lots of interesting, contextual details.

    Have a lovely day,

    Hello Krzysztof,

    Congratulations on your longevity and your many inspirational shots.

    This is a fine wide angled shot, capturing the wet textures of the pier for atmosphere and using its converging lines to great effect.
    You have achieved a wonderful sense of scale.

    Have a lovely day,

    Hello Barbara,

    I wonder if you were able to pass this photograph on to the mother. It really is a cracker and she would be so delighted with it.
    The little girl's face, so perfectly placed and with twinkling sharp eyes, is surrounded by pinks of all hues! It's a photographer's dream.

    Have a lovely and thanks for sharing this,

    Hello Rob,

    Your low viewpoint has really emphasised the water and, therefore, the closeness between the city and the water. I don't think I have ever seen a city skyline preceded by such swelling waves. It is very effective both in colours and sharpness.

    Have a great day,

    Hello Will,

    This is a really well composed photograph and so full of atmosphere. There seems such a contrast between the restful tranquillity of the f/g and the low, sweeping clouds of the b/g. It sort of brings back memories of 'The Trollenberg Terror'.

    Hello Brian,

    I believe Thalassa was a Greek sea goddess and this tall ship certainly has goddess qualities; she is beautiful! I don't think you could have got a better angle on her as she cuts through the water, sails open, heading for the space you have allowed her.
    The colours and light are beautifully soft.

    Have a lovely day,

    Hello Asa,

    You have chosen a good time to take this shot so that you are getting the best possible use from the light.
    The leads work well and we are succinctly attracted to the door via the receding arches, before we enjoy the beauty of the whole building.
    There is just enough contextual information.

    Hello Dear Ney,

    The light is glorious, here.
    It has had a remarkable effect at defining the weather and river worn features of the canyon.
    The f/g, rich in colours and textures, makes a stunning third of your composition.

    Hello Craig,

    As you say, it is amazing how many photographs you post in this international gallery. But how good that photographs taken in one part of the world, can be shared all over it. We all learn from one another and I am not speaking out of turn when I say, you have been particularly inspirational to many of us. So, thank you for all your creative shots and your friendly ability to inspire others.

    This is a fine shot.
    The raised bridge, challenging height with the skyscrapers, makes an excellent diagonal across the backlit city. I love the soft reflections on the river, almost icy in texture.

    Congratulations on your 900th post and have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Ryszard,

    This is an amazing shot!
    The circular lines and textured materials take us on a dizzy spiral to the very centre of the screen. I love how the dark periphery force the attention inwards.

    Hello Jason,

    Hand and face gestures can be just as strong as verbal interactions.
    I just love the unconcealed curiosity on this little girl's face. She is perfectly framed in the blue window frame, which is, itself, strongly placed amongst the richly textured logs.
    I can imagine that you have had a wonderful time and seen some quite unexpected and exciting scenes. Wouldn't it be great if whole countries could get along in the same friendly fashion as photographers on TE!

    Have a lovely day,

    Привет мой друг,

    Now we have two places that we both thoroughly enjoy and can share in fond memories. :) I sure wish I could have taken this same trip with Malgo and experienced this region as well.

    A simple, but lovely roadside stop overlooking the lake. I sure hope you have many more pictures from Russia to share with us, especially now that I have gained a practical association and can directly relate to the imagery. :))

    Too bad you broke your own rule and had to deal with the fog on this instance, but you certainly were blessed with a lovely moment here to capture the serene and well lit scene. Have a great new day ahead. take good care.

    Dasvidaniya,

    Jason

    Hi Brenda,

    I love your knack for reflections, and here we have another unique one to enjoy. :) This goes to show, you don't need a famous landmark to result in an eye-catching and intriguing photo. The Sky Mirror offers up many possibilities, and you've composed a fun and intriguing one using shapes and form to create quite a mind bender of elements. From the smaller thumbnail gallery, I thought this was a Ghery building, but you fooled me...and for that, I thank you! :) Smartly arranged and well presented. Have a great day ahead. Take it easy.

    Friendly wishes from the West,

    Jason

    Hi Malgo,

    I really do wish I could have continued on with you for this journey, but it sounds like you're having a great time just the same. :) Making friends and seeing the beautiful Russian countryside, a great way to spend any vacation! This is a beautiful rendition of the landscape, and one that is far removed from the association of a cold and harsh Siberia that most generally associate with this region. Autumn has arrived it would appear, better get back to where it's a bit warmer so you can continue to wear sandals. ;)

    I'm loving following along in picture, and can't wait to see your impressions of Moscow....just don't beat me to posting any of the same pictures. lol Travel safely, and continue having a great time! All the best.

    Friendly wishes from Phoenix,

    Jason

    Guten Tag Wolfgang,

    For obvious reasons, this one stood apart in your gallery for me. :) I think I recognize the man on the right, he looks recently familiar. And what a difference in weather conditions, the sunshine you experiences renders are much more vivid display. Great side by side frame, the people and their daily life. Enjoy the new day. Take good care.

    Hi Burak,

    Precisely the kind of thing that takes us into the locale. Always a pleasure to see the local customs, traditions and foods from a given country. It's a great way to learn more about the people and places we may never see in person, and can experience through picture. A lot different than the fast food I'm accustomed to seeing, or eating for that matter. :) Have a great day. Take care.

    Hey Craig,

    Having just wrapped up a weekend of dog-sitting, I just couldn't help but immediately notice the title and have my interest piqued for this one. :)

    Oh, the 1%'s, how would it be be to have that much money you can clear out two entire floors for yourself....and how much better are those dogs living than ourselves?!! Maybe if we all pooled our money together we could rent out the janitors closet. lol

    Awesome view over the skyline, a first time seeing it from this vantage point, you came up with a fresh take on the the Windy City...especially to have included the foreground "circus" of colors and attractions.

    So what, you're not enough of a daredevil to get the "perfect" shot and dangle outside of the cage...sheesh, I thought you were madman for your craft. haha Nothing to be ashamed of here my friend, this is a helluva' result!

    Enjoy the rest of the evening. Take it easy. Oh, and what happened yesterday...lettin' the Cowpokes handle your Titans. That's never good!

    Cheers,

    Jason

    Hi Lars,

    Estonia has been on my radar for a while now, and this picture only supports the desire to travel there! This is quite a lovely view over the city, detailing the beautiful architecture and colors that abound. Plus, you were fortunate to have such nice sunlight to show it off even more so. :) So many neat details to see, even from a distance. Clear and precise, this is nice! Have a great day ahead. All the best.

    Hi Ourania,

    Easy to understand why you would never tire of this view, regardless of weather conditions. Isn't it fun though to witness the slight changes, and how they can dramatically affect the overall outcome and mood?

    This would be a very interesting one-a-day series to put together...and I would imagine it would rarely be lacking in natural sunlight. :) No matter the time of year, that deep blue Mediterranean water always looks so inviting. And coupled with the rest of the natural beauty, why not?!! :) Have a great day ahead. Take care.
