    Hi Ike
    That's glittering lights and colours teeming with live! I love the level of clarity achieved here without blowing the brightest spots. What a joyous night shot and the depth in it with the sense of moving effect by pedestrians as they add lots of sensation and vibrancy. Those static remain crisp and the colours are warm but natural. A successful low light shot at fairly slow shutter speed. Well done, TFS

    It's so lovely full of good colours, lovely lighting and composition, this traditional house looks like a house out of a fairy tale! But the roof looks like a fire hazard but otherwise living here looks like heaven. That is so worth uploading and tx to the infor notes, Fine shot, Congrats.

    Superb low view point pointing upwards and long perspective with immense depth making the cable lines and the pylon dominate the whole capture with minimal silhouetted as strong foreground base. Then, throw in the deep blue sky, there we have an impactful shot. Great catch, Congrats, TFS

    Hi Mariusz
    Nice use of space and wide angle, placement and the sense of depth. What an impressive image - the Cathedral really stands out against the sky with equally good lead in the way the fg pulls me into the shot with good range of colours, subtle lighting and excellent comp beautifully captured and processed. A really impactful image. Excellent narratives too & a pleasure to read. Congrats

    Hi Gert
    Great composition and lovely colour as usual, an excellent piece of reportage photography that shows an old fashioned scene that still continues in some parts of our world today. A woman with a mission and purpose displaying the stuff in hot weather plus unrefrigerated, but a nice slice-of-life. This will disappear in time I guess, which may prevent a few cases of food poisoning;. It's worth recording, Congrats

    Hi Noel
    Just loved the way that the butterfly stood out from the background with its delicate looking amazing patterns as it fed on the nectar from the flowers.
    The whole thing is so much more vibrant and level of sharp detail has such impact. Great shot, TFS.

    Full of life shot on a grey day and what a catch both by the fisherman, and by you and your camera! I think in future it's always worth trying new technique using wide lens and changing of perspective by lowering your viewpoint close to the main subject for much more impact thus making the focal more prominent - my only suggestion. Excellent candid shot, Congrats

    Hi Luis
    Nice how the arch creates a natural frame together with the beautiful pavement draws us into the catchy distance and many points of interest. A well observed and capture with lots of sunshine on a fresher day filled with a wealth of colours, good clarity and striking contrast. Great capture, TFS

    Howdy Malgo,

    The multiple artistic silver onion domes of Rostov are definitely attractive via your natural warm lighting and fine resolution, and seen from an elevated position, showing off their sky panorama including the supporting walls.

    Good job,

    Howdy Craig,

    Attractive vertical of Naples waterfront with colorful architecture and wooden boats curving in line, then the fortress like rock architecture a top the background hill.
    I am impressed the boats are basic and not large modern yachts.
    I wanted to visit Naples last year during the America's Cup sail races but unfortunately did not, and had to settle for the San Francisco series.

    Thanks for sharing,
    Cheers,

    Howdy Noel,

    Fine high definition saturated view of the elegant Belfast City Hall. The architecture is over-the top elegant Baroque/Romantic with multiple features to stimulate the eye and mind. I especially like the ornate corner towers with slender columns, and multiple arches and columns everywhere, then of course the dominate center dome.

    Your vision stimulates the desire to visit in person.

    Thanks for sharing,

    Howdy Luis,

    Viewing Competa through the fluted arch increases the artistic scene, the mosaic patio patterns dominate, classical metal lamp, then the white architecture climbing the hillside.

    Stimulates the desire to visit in person and soak in the history and culture.

    Howdy Sven,

    The heavy metal construction with rivets intrigues me, for we have been utilizing light materials here including plastics which requires less power to move. Of course in accidents our light passenger cars are more vulnerable.

    Howdy Ourania,

    Perhaps a Leros "false front" like our movie set buildings? It certainly looks like a large wall with no rooms attached?

    So Leros has architecture oddity to intrigue along with natural attractions.

    Fine golden lighting enhancing the Luray Caverns' ragged and numerous stalactites. Hopefully I will get to visit them someday.
    I am a big fan of caverns and am fortunate to have 3 within a short drive of where I live in the Sierra Nevada foothills of northern California.
