    Sterk gepolarizeerde zomerkleuren met mooie donkerblauwe kleur op het water. Het stukje van de railing binnen het frame vind ik ook geslaagd.

    En nu ga ik terug naar buiten want het is zomer...

    Hello Malgo

    Sizzling hot colours with lots of yellow hues. Great sky and the castle and building in the distance top it all off. Great shot, if you ask me.

    Congratulations, John, and what a fine picture to celebrate it. Great scan quality, I particularly like the clarity of the grasslands vs the threatening sky above it. And the man in between just looks very cool. A 1970 kind of cool, which somehow is just much more cool than this year's model.

    Cheers

    Hello Ryszard

    Lovely panaroma. It seems a nice place to live. At least: we once met two girls from Wroclaw while travelling in China, and they liked it there.

    The one modern building on the right stands out, I'm not sure I like it that much. But it sure looks like yet another place I'd love to visit some day.

    Fine addition to your series on this topic. Again the strong polarization strikes me. The resulting sky is very appealing. Also the clarity and sharpness of the image are very good (e.g. on the bl/w cloth the man is carrying).

    My favourite elements, though, are the S-shape line the sheep are making and the other-worldly wind mills at the horizon. They are perfectly placed and seem to belong to world which is wolly different from the Transhumance. A thought-provoking contrast!

    Dag Rob

    Mooie foto vol kleur en diepte. De lamp in de hoek vind ik een prima vondst. Ik denk dat ik er die driehoek bovenaan nog afgesneden zou hebben, zodat die lamp helemaal van buiten beeld lijkt binnen te komen in het plaatje.

    Knap gezien, knap gedaan.

    Always a small joy to be the first to post on a location. I've had the pleasure too a few times, and it always brings a smile. Especially when the location is as picturesque as here. A great sweeping view, the town hidden in the armpit of the bay and the couple sitting quietly in admiration. Light might have been even better early or late in the day, but it does make a great sight. Congratulations.

    Surely this is the crowning shot of the series, Tony! Wonderful. If you'd make a book of pictures, this might be a superb cover.

    A cute little shot to celebrate the TE-birthday.

    After checking my profile page, which I sadly can no longer update it seems, I noticed that I started here at around the same time, only a couple months later.

    Although I'm not always that active (never posting while on holiday, the occasional blimp out and never participated in any of the meetings) I do enjoy the site still and I have no plans whatsever to jump ship.

    It's just those damn bugs sometimes...

    Nine years...that must about as old as the kid in the picture! Time flies.

    A fine trio of pictures in this post, Abmdsudi. All have their merit and I wouldn't be sure which one to pick as the main shot in the post.

    In your eventual choice I like the line-up of the instruments. It has good depth and the low light conditions don't bother me at all. In fact, I think they contribute to the atmosphere.

    We saw a similar orchestra in Yogja and I'll probably post a shot from that session some time later.

    Hello Stephen

    Lovely, those faded letters and layers of paint. I guess it would have been really good in colour too. I'm also wondering about a closer crop, perhaps vertical, filled with details of the facade only...

    Hello Mariusz

    The heavy shadow, the rather empty look of the square, the pattern of the floor and the polarized sky add a touch of surrealism to the beauty of the scene.

    Great work, congratulations on your 600 & here's to many more!

    Hello Ourania

    A great return to bl/w for this beauty.
    In spite of the obvious heat the man looks really cool. The zigzag pattern on the right is very good, and I also really like how the silhouette of the man leaves some details visible (eg top of his head).

    Top!
