    Hello Leslie
    Spectacular landscape with superb rendering of the colours. Great contrast between the foreground with its sharpness and details and the hazy landscape down below. The sky of course provides atmosphere and drama along with lovely colours.
    Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend
    best regards

    Hi Malgo,

    Maybe it's due to the fact of the early morning hours, and my eyes haven't quite adjusted yet, but it took me a while to figure out this shot....I love the fusion of real life and art! What a great picture that defies the common visual...a bit of trickery on the eyes. :) This trio fits almost perfectly into the scenery they're admiring, especially the lady on the right...only her red beret gives it away. You see, "red" has worked it's way in. lol

    A beautiful picture with a lot going on, but one worth taking the time to analyze. Cropping out the picture frame itself might make this even more of a twister on the brain. :) A fun shot, well observed and presented. Enjoy the rest of the day. Take it easy.

    Hugs,

    Jason

    Hi Danos,

    Ahaha, you must be quite an imposing figure to cast a shadow that large from where you were standing. ;) Amazing how much that does take a human form, and not something I would have visualized without your note...a touch of humor is always a good thing. :) A splendid view indeed, this is quite beautiful in every aspect...and even from this distance, makes me want to dive right in to those deep turquoise waters. This is an attractive vista from on high, and I bet is just as appealing from anywhere really...you just can't go wrong wrong with a place like this! Enjoy the weekend ahead. All the ebst.

    Friendly wishes,

    Jason

    Hi Ike,

    The WS picture with the lady present gives us a great idea of scale, as you mention...too bad she wasn't there for this vertical composition which emphasizes the height of the caves. I like the mysterious curiosity from the "black hole," makes me wonder what's on the other side. :) And I like the idea to include just that touch of sunlight sneaking in from the top of the frame, giving context to the illumination down below.Enjoy the rest of the day. Take good care.

    Friendly wishes,

    Hi Bev,
    A very pleasant sunshine over the buildings along the slope. The dark clouds seem to portend worse the weather, or maybe they're going away. A very attractive scene, whatever the weather.

    Hi John,
    A very funny and interesting note! I took a trip in this village too, with the kind help from the yellow man. I couldn´t find anything close to a pub here, so I imagine this is indeed a very dull village.

    Beautiful birds and a very nicely taken photo in which the three birds are well positioned at the corner, looking into the picture. A very attractive colour harmony as well.

    Hej Gert,
    Du stannade tydligen en tag i den här staden. Var det för att "researcha" din bok? Kanske flera av personerna i bilden förekommer i boken. Hur som helst, biografen ser ju rätt imponerande ut, vad gick det för film när du var här?

    Hi Edward,

    A very thoughtful post, and unfortunately one that is now associated with a tragic event. A fine and honorable duty for these men, and a real pity that it would be subject to any type of atrocity. Thoughts and condolences go out to our neighbors and friends to the North. Take good care.

    Hi Ali,

    A beautiful field of color, I like how you arranged this composition around the strongest feature, while still allowing for plenty of background space. We can't control weather conditions, but the grey skies take nothing away from natures beauty and your nice presentation of these fields. Enjoy the new day, hopefully with sunny skies. :) Take care.

    Salut mon ami,

    C'est un espace ouvert attrayant tout, il ressemble presque plus à une grande salle dans un musée...placer un toit en tête et c'est exactement ce que l'on a ici! :) Tant intéressantes formes, couleurs et détails pour numériser sur...même un couple de personnes pour faire bonne mesure. ;) Avec un ciel bleu clair et beaucoup de soleil, tu as très bien pour équilibrer l'exposition à la lumière et les ombres lumineuses. J'aime beaucoup le contraste de cette place, il ressemble et se sent à la fois confortable et grande ouverte en même temps. Bonne journée Miss Cricri. Ciao.

    Bises d'Arizona,

    Jason

    Hola Luis,

    Uh-oh, this one may now serve as inspiration to post a similar one of my own. :) As soon as I can tear myself away from Russia, that might just be the case. I love spending time around Vieux Port...so many sights, sounds...and unfortunately, some unpleasant smells!? jaja Well worth the time spent however, and when you can come up with such interesting pictures like this, I'll gladly work through the aromas.

    A rich display of color and "blue collar" work in action. I applaud this profession, these guys put in a lot of hard time for their trade, and this is a wonderful depiction of that aspect. Bright, sharply focused and well detailed...there's a lot to absorb from this scene, and so, i'll get started. :) Have a great day ahead. All the best.

    Friendly wishes from the desert,

    Bonjour Didi,

    This is quite a beautiful station facade, makes me think of the one in Nice, but much bigger and more ornate. The adjacent clock tower really puts a fine touch on the overall visual and aesthetic appeal. And if that weren't enough, you were gifted with some lovely natural sunlight to make it all the more attractive. I might just want to stay and photograph the details rather than actually catch a train somewhere. Bonne journee. All the best.

    Amicalement,

    Jason

    Hi Burak,

    Someone should tell this young man that he's facing the wrong direction, the famous tower is behind him! :)

    Not too often we see the Eiffel tower set off to the left side of the frame, taken from the esplanade of Palais de Chaillot. This offers a bit of a new perspective, and it's nice to see one of the golden statues included as well. Always a treat to see this most Parisian icon. enjoy the new day. All the best.

    Hi Murat,

    I see the "ghosts" you've pointed out, but I'd be more concerned with the headless visitor standing in the same room over there to the right!! :)

    A keen observation on your part to pick out that effect and "create" the perceived apparations casually hanging around outside in the forest. Nice balance on the lighting, this had to have been kind of tricky, but everything looks smooth and well detailed. A nice spot to sit, relax and enjoy the scenery. Have a great evening. Take it easy.

    Friendly wishes,

    Hi Pedro,

    What a superb view over this beautiful palace! A captivating piece of architecture from any vantage point I'm sure, but this elevated position greatly enhances the dimension and overall design. This also affords wonderful context of its surroundings. I like the heavy clouds, adding a bit of drama into the scenery. Well layed out and detailed, this turned out really well. Enjoy the rest of the day. Take care.

    Privet Maria E.,

    Ahaha, did you ever see the movie "Vacation?" This young guys shoes remind of the same ones Chevy Chase wears, that were given to him by his brother-in-law. :)

    You may have been "caught" taking their picture, and lost some of the candid nature of the moment, but their poses and smiles surely compensate for any loss in that regard. They make an instant connection with your camera, and with us, the viewers. A simply daily life scene, but one which has that youthful personality that we can all appreciate. And even if we can't hear an of the communication through picture, we still get a sense of common acceptance. Photos can "paint the picture," but people tell the story. :) Enjoy the rest of the evening. Be good. Доброй ночи мой друг.


    Cheers from the desert,

    It is as if a veil is being lifted, to gradually reveal the beauty of the golden domes. I feel as if I should whisper, so as not to disturb the peaceful scene.
