    Hi Rosemary,
    Excellent wide angle shot showing the flat clay desert with huge dunes in the background. Cracks on the clay give a hint that some other time there is more water. And so do also those trees that look so small against that background.

    Hi Jorge,
    Those curvy roots make a special background. Dark background also brings the heron clearly visible. Excellent shot from a boat passing by.

    Hi Will,
    Very impressive action shot of those big sailboats on full action. And you were really close with your camera! certainly not a point of view available for ordinary passer-by.

    Hi Laurent,
    Texture and shape of that hay load is quite impressive. Also passengers with those scarves add an effect of surprise. Interesting scene. Motorcyclettes seem to be very popular method of transport over there.

    Hi Claude,
    Good way to arrange some beach feeling for city residents. Lying on a beach chair eyes closed almost gives a feeling of being by the sea. And kids they are perfectly happy for getting a chance to play on sand. You chose your PoV very carefully giving a good idea of the place.

    Hi Edward,
    It may be old and fading, but it is still a very beautiful building, it cries back to another age when this type of house was in its glory. A very fine image to document this fine place, and from your note, one very important as if it keeps fading like this, it will not be able to display its glory for much longer. Excellent architectural and documentary photo.

    Hi Ricardo.
    Excellent scene, I want to take a fast car and drive this road like I have never driven before. It reminds me of a scene from the very old video game need for speed, it is that perfect as a road. Beautiful scene, well captured.

    Hi Jean,
    Really beautiful soft and relaxing colors, and what a wondful subject. Your composition of the lighthouse is perfect, especially balanced as it is by the sun like this. Great image, thanks for sharing.

    Hi Omid,
    I like this moðn building very much, the strong lines have an almost wate like feel to their design, while the circular windows are a nice contrast to the lines and remind me a little of a ship!
    Nice work

    A very peaceful scene, and all composed really nicely, the tower on thirds is particularly well done. A very calming image crafted with excellent light

    Hi Angel,
    Lovely city square. Those palms create almost tropical feeling. Architecture is pretty similar on those buildings but there's still nice variations. Cadiz is a city I certainly want to visit some day.

    Hi Barnabas,
    A really good idea to focus on this unusual glass structure, it is intriguing and unusual. The workshop is great to picture it in its true context, but very unusually for the buildings you share, I don't like the structure it sits atop. I love the glass element in the main post though.
    Have a good weekend

    Hi Brian,
    Just like the last image I viewed in your gallery, what a cool contrast of styles. Beautiful to know this place has survived so much, and now finally, it seems the aliens have landed, the gherkins really looks like an alien craft here. It's a novel and excellent way to present this modern tower. Anytime I see the gherkins it is always in a very urban setting, but here it looks like it has just landed in a small country town, and it still looks fantastic. Excellent scene of this icon, and a really new one to me.
    All the best

    Hi Brian,
    I am familiar with the sight of these colorful beach huts thanks largely to your gallery that documents them so well, but I would never expect to see this big Italian style behemoth rising behind! A surprising and very beautiful image that you captured under abisolutrly superb light conditions. You have broken it into thirds in such a novel and excellent way too,
    Nicely done.
    Cheers

    Hi Lisa,
    That one is pure gold! Light is fantastic thanks to those clouds. And those rays under the cloud are icing on the cake.
    Thanks for the link. You note brought to my mind Hell is for Children of Pat Benatar.

    Hi Jean,
    Lovely sunset. I like those almost purple colours and the layer of haze that dims the sun just the right way. That familiar lighthouse is always nice and balances framing on the other side as the sun.

    Hi Danos,
    I had no idea that Ulm has such a charming old town. It is not so well known as a tourist destination but seems worth a visit.
    Very fresh looking place with plenty of green and canals next to those old houses.

    Hi Silvio,
    Fields of colourful flowers and play of sun and shadow make these fields looking incredibly vibrant. I've never seen such myself. Excellent high viewpoint where this landscape opens wide.

    Hi Malgo,
    What a view. As I look into your scene here, my eyes want to look up and down and across and into envy nook and cranny of the scene. These are the kind of streets that I would love to explore, and you captured them with such excellent levels of detail all across the scene. Really really nicely done.
    Have a great weekend.
