    Hi Mariusz
    A witness of past glory! what a wonderful abbey this must have been in its heyday as there is so much history and if they could talk the tales...
    Well recorded of this ruin, very nice use of light here well exposed with superb detail in stonework giving the eye something to fill in. The contrast against the blue sky is so striking with lovely moving cloud to finish off this absorbing shot. Remarkable shot, Congrats.

    Hi Luis
    A very nice collection of strong coloured items and full of interest - admire your patience - I reckon this would make a nice postcard. An effective crop with lovely little touch of green, bright and clear of an eye candy shot. Excellent capture, Congrats

    An excellent spontaneous shot depicting a slice of life with the splash of vibrant colours of the characterful guy as central focal of interest. What ever the reason you have created an image of many interpretation that could bring about endless discussion. I like your viewpoint and I suppose every bit is important to viewers and therefore needs to be there. Very interesting capture. Congrats.

    Hi Noel
    Superb capture of the amazing shaped modern stadium and the waterways as this is probably the best place to get a decent image of main focal and its surroundings. I find the deep blue water and sky have added so much more to this image with the added bonus of some nice catchy light on the roof. Impressive to say the least, Well done.

    Hi Ghislaine
    I like the matching colour there and vibrancy in them superbly framed diagonally for more dynamic rendition.
    Indeed it's full of cheery ambient with bags of detail to absorb aided by the bright sun light. Well done and good effort, Congrats

    Hi Burak
    Another fine example of the very rugged land formations from this part of the country and your hi pov is always beneficial showing almost the whole stretch of the landscape. I find glimpse of the catchy white dwelling is superb addition and the contrast is amazing against the pure blue sky. The fg mystery shadows add the extra dimension to this capture, Great ideas and seamlessly shot, Congrats

    Hi Lisa
    Superb Natural Creations, what a scenic delight we have here! so glad to see this beautiful rugged geological formations through your eyes and you were there at the right time of day. The composition is very in your face which suits me perfectly showing the full depth of the surroundings to give the shot more scale, you have captured the light perfectly full of vivid detail, amazing rich colours, shapes and shadows. It's the contrasts of colours that I find so attractive. It's a spectacular location, are you sure it's not the moon? Delicious shot and tfs,
    Congrats

    Hi Danos
    A lovely composition taken from a very promising viewpoint at late hour of day and lovely touch of curvy line when the land & water is filed with gorgeous golden glow, detail and mouth-watering reflection to round it off so superbly. The moving boat settles the focus point firmly there and it's seamlessly exposed to the very best here. It's a pleasure to view, My congrats and tfs

    Hi Federico
    That's a very sweeping coastal scape with its excellent composition & interest to draw attention. It's exquisitely exposed here to bring out the best clarity, rich colors and contrast. I feel the white waves has really lifted the capture tenfold. This has been a lovely spot so pleasantly shot and pleasure to view. Well done, Congrats

    Hi Ally
    Another great street scene, a small window into another world with the charming buildings as centrepiece grabbing all the focus of attention and the people anchor superbly. Aptly cropped vertically showing the immaculate detail, pleasantly exposed with enough interest around bundled by array of colours enriching the whole scene. It's an appealing old time feel that i really adore and real cool on the eyes. Beautiful snap, Congrats

    Hi Neyvan
    It's a great action shot full of animation created by the splash from the surfboard. Exposed well, rich cool blue, sharp and that bit of angle on the sail has given the dynamic with excellent space for him to manoeuvre. You have timed the shot precisely that seems so inviting you just want to jump in! Congrats

    It's superbly balanced crop with all the lines, shapes and colours combined in one view with a touch of religious element. Incredible sharpness and clarity which makes an excellent graphical abstract but credit to your keen observation - contribution of the prayer flag and blue rectangles is immensed here lifting this capture to higher level! Simple delight and tx to your useful foreword, My congrats.

    Hi Maria
    What a wonderful wall in it's entirety....
    Another amazing work of art by the talented artist and this works stronger due to the scale benefited from being bigger. Frankly I'd rather see this than car ads on huge billboards and great to see it in context with all the extra details as the unposed cutie is a cracking inclusion in shade of a fascinating psychedelic colour! Admire you flair just hope the vandals stay away? Great capture once again, Congrats

    Hi Kasia
    Great capture - stunning detail, gentle exposure and great contrasting layer of colours at high altitude which also gives the viewer a sense of the expansive scale. I think the turquoise water glues as strong anchor point leading the whole capture. The two humped camels which is common in Central Asia collaborated as strong element as a whole. A fine spectacle, beautifully captured, and tfs. Congrats

    Hi Burak
    Another shot of hostile land formation that I cant imagine just how life was then. I love the play of strong and colour that you managed to clinch so expertly and what an extravaganza of textures there. Lovely inclusion how the openings has actually directed our focus into the shot, it's a wonderful opportunity and so well taken! Amazing historical sight, Congrats

    Howdy Noel,

    Thought provoking image of the defunct electric generating plants, especially the huge smokestacks. An interesting future, keep these obsolete structures or remove them? This will be an issue around our Earth as more 'green energy' electricity increases and improves.

    Thanks for sharing,
    Sincerely,
