    Hi Stephen
    A unique view of a church, and you done brilliantly to keep so much color with that harsh light flooding in from above. Cool dizzying result

    Hi Janet
    This could be an impressionist painting, the colors with their fine reflection and the people in their various poses make a very beautiful photo. Normally I try to shoot with no people but they really are a vital part of this image. Really nicely done

    Hi Lars
    Very clever way to shoot this beautiful church, and I'm amazed at how clear that reflection of the scene is, what a well kept mirror! Great architecture and great placement in the frame. Cool photo and great idea

    Hi Paja
    This statue stands very proud and the central composition works perfectly. The light looks really difficult but you have managed it perfectly well to retain good details.

    Hi Fred,
    A true craggy island name to this church but it's name doesn't match is appearance. The way you've shot this makes it look almost like a citidel with the many spires racing into the sky, the whole appearance is very dark and gothic and menacing. The sky suits that feeling perfectly too. I love how that iron cross stands out against the sky, is like a mid air grave marker. Cool photo
    Cheers

    That is an amazing sky, the colors are like something from a dream with this regal blues and that surprising tint of green. Magical moment to capture

    Hi Gyorgy
    This is a really cool photo, at first glance the stark three part design with ground, entrance and facade is very striking, especially with the film strip style frame. Looking further and seeing the workers is such a bonus, and without your note u would not have spotted them. Very nicely done

    Hi Krzysztof
    An interesting tomb. The building behind is quite simple but the facade is very impressive, the crenellated turreted design makes me think they must be a fan of castles. Interesting style and photo

    Hi Craig
    These three pictures are super cool. They would make a really brilliant set of prints. The colors are very dusk, especially the blue on the right of the main post. Is nice to see a shopping centre with such great design. There are big shopping centres in urethane but all the designs seem to be from shopping centres 101. Shame that more don't look like this old coal chimney crossed with a storage ship.

    At first I thought the flag was a very colourful traffic cone that one of these ladies was carrying on her head :) interesting scene and interesting question. I like your title very much.

    Hi Xavier
    The light in this is really superb and puts a very special feeling to the photo, add I looked at this before reading your note. It made me think of a building you would find in the hanging gardens of babylon. Very classical scene, very nicely fine

    This ruin looks well kept and almost modern in its clean straight lines appearance. The combination of the cold grey and the blue sky is a rare combination and it looks really good

    Hi Rob
    Really nicely done, I love playing with reflections in buildings but in Ireland I don't much chance in high rise like this. A wonderful idea to leave the snippet of clue sky in the right and top of the photo. Great result

    Hi Bubub
    In this world it is always great to see pure human happiness and that seems very evident in the faces of this young couple. Even the land around them seems to have taken on a magical feeling. Like that from a movie. Very nice choice in the off centre composition

    Hi Ken
    Interesting portrayal of this sculpture, it looks perhaps like early man on the hunt. Nice to include the modern tower on the right, shadows of the past complimented with visions of the future. I really like the title.
