    Hello Frank

    Your note brought a smile here. I guess some countries suffer more from the grey hour (day?) syndrome than others. A shot of difference, appreciated.

    take care

    Hello Daniel

    A fine shot of Parisian coleur locale. The Sunday title makes a fine little humourous element here. The inverted steering wheel at the front bike too, perhaps, not sure there... Worth the post, tfs & have a fine week.

    Terrific earthy shot, Ana. The dust rising up, the sunlight falling down...people and animals in between. Impressive, I hope this is the beginning of a little series.

    Excellent summer evening shot. Light is terrific, as are the black silhouettes of land. Keep walking.

    I fully understand what you write about in your note. I had the same feelings, took some time off, then returned, because...

    yes, so many pictures here are downright boring and the amount of feedback has nothing-absolutely-nothing to do with the originality/quality of the picture...

    but every so often gems are still being posted and it's still a great place to follow interesting travellogues (such as your Iranian trip!).

    Obviously, it's all up to you really, but I do hope to see you again. Malaysia is one of my favourite countries, actually...

    Bonjour Serge

    Good use of available light & great symmetrical compo. Fun fact (for me): Hoboken is (also) a working class suburb of Antwerp.

    Hello Maciej

    Impressive view, though it lacks a bit of definition. Actually, I think the balance in the WS picture is better.

    Tfs & have a pleasant Sunday

    Hello Zbignieuw

    The colour strips at the front make a nice change in this type of nature photography. I like the contrast and dynamism they create.

    Hello Nick

    Great low light and lovely soft tones here, almost like a watercolour. A well-filtered impression of this grand view.

    Cheers

    Hello Malgorzata

    A fine summery contribution with a great sky and terrific textures on the stone framing in front. Of the three shots (incl the WS) you defintely picked the best one as the main post. The light and the stones make all the difference.

    have a pleasant Sunday

    Maybe not 100% perfect, but the shot does bring across the solemn atmosphere of the occasion. That's what counts to me.

    Terrific shot of a terrific window view. I think I'd be a poet too, given time and a window like this :)

    Hi Jerzy

    With the odd curves in the landscapes, the big farm sticking out in the back and the high mountain backdrop, this makes a great pov. Intriguing.
