    Hi Gy

    Great to have this cantor praeses as my neighbor today! A well worked image, I like how the singer's face is lit up and great sharpness/details on the symbols and signs on the jacket. A fine one, this!

    Cheers

    A creepy scene! But a very fascinating image.
    I like the flatness of the picture too.
    Thanks for sharing it here.

    Hello Vikramdev

    Quiet and serene, a great composition. The clouds are terrif, the central tree too and then there's that lonely tea picker. Terrific!

    Bonjour Serge

    Lots of distortion to light up the scene. Technically this a problem, but on the other it creates a strange, eerie atmosphere, a bit ghost-like...and that effect is just superb! So I end up really liking this one.

    Hi Abmdsudi
    for some reason i'm imagining a camel walking the streets in a major city haha....wouldn't that look funny :)

    Do camels kick back like horses do? Probably not, but you should still be careful :)

    the camel and how its positioned in the frame really works well, has a strong presence in a 3D like effect, and it looks even larger because of it.

    the atmospheric sky is a total bonus and certainly helped out with the exposure settings. nice shot. cheers

    Hello Malgo

    A bit hazy (as most of the time in China), but it didn't turn out too bad, did it? Good use of the greenery to frame the scene. Very ancient-Chinese-poetry-like.

    Thanks for the interesting and useful links to the lift. I didn't know about that particular contraption :)

    Hi John
    I like how one single person in the frame like that can makes such a difference in the overall look of the scene.
    and the fact he is wearing an Orange sweater makes it only that much better haha.

    the windows are charming, the clock is charming, as are the stones on the ground. lots to like here. cheers

    Hi Craig

    This is a stunner. The classic poster-type image, made timeless by the old masters of photography, I'm sure you know the shot I mean (the name of the famous photographer escapes me righ tnow).

    Thanks for the bike reflection in the WS, but this one just is so much better, of course!

    Congratulations!!

    Hi Carlo
    Personally, I really like this one and its too bad it doesn't have more TE points bc its well deserving of it.

    I would think most people do not come away with this photo when they visit here, but you have. the slim presentation works well as it copies the rectangular design, and the blues, yellows, greens all work well in harmony. nice shot.
    cheers

    Hi Alexandre
    good for them to restore the church to such bright colors, as it was in the old days. and I can easily see why it would stand out, its a very odd color combination, but hey, it grabs people attention for sure.

    The 3 towers make a strong statement as does the warm light striking it. lovely subject and photo from here. cheers

    Hi Ryszard
    Hey, I have this EXACT same one hanging outside of my door!
    haha...kidding of course.

    Its great that the city has kept the tradition alive like that, after so many years.

    I'm sure they add alot of charm and elegance to the city. This one I really like, with the dangling sun.

    Hello Mariusz

    Great sky, light below on the harsh earth is very hard, but I guess you didn't have time to wait there for a couple of extra hours, it looks rather hot.

    I was just reading about Humboldt (who climbed the mountain) and Darwin (who wanted to copy him).

    Mooie diepe kleur in de weerspiegeling, John. De wereld onder water lijkt boeiender dan die erboven hier! Ik wist niet dat er een plaatsje was dat "Sifon" heet, wel grappig.

    Hi Pavle
    coming to your profile, I know to expect something a little bit different :)

    and thats what we have here today. We don't see many construction sites on TE :)

    Personally, I really enjoy the old house on the right, its very small, but full of character and history. fun shot.

    Hi Denis
    well, it doesn't really get much more charming than this!
    the fisherman was wearing the perfect colors for you! haha
    if he were wearing blue pants it wouldn't have the same visual effect. and I can actually see yellow reflected on to the water :)

    the stone cottage house is A+ as well, so much to appreciate and enjoy here, same with the compo. cheers
