    Hi Asa,

    the trees are framing well the church. The point of view is showing the details of the architecture of the St.Michael's church. The good luminosity is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.

    Hi Chris.

    The flights of the bords is adding life to the scene. The point of view is showing the details of the house or building. The late afternoon light does not hurt the output of the colors. Have a nice day.

    Hi Lars,

    The reflections on the water are assets to the composition. The point of view is showing the details of the buildings and of the gates. The good luminosity is making the colors to stand out. Have a nice day.

    its the kind of photo that makes me want to get out of the house and try to find the exact same thing!
    too bad its raining today :)

    you said it perfectly in your note...this is BOLD.
    love the shimmer and shine, and the wiggle of all the subjects.

    Hi Ourania
    I like this one alot.
    its like finding a piece of gold or a treasure.
    the building is neatly tucked away.
    seems like you had to go for a walk to find it.
    off the beaten path perhaps.

    elegant architecture, love the colors and how you present it to us.

    Hi Jean Claude
    never seen a nature center quite like this one before.
    I think they did an excellent job in creating something so unique.

    love the arch and its strong lines.
    of course the reflections help out alot too.
    attractive scene.

    Hi Konrad
    just couldn't help but make a comment on this one.
    that water ring really does put a great spin on the shot.
    it actually works well as a focal point too.

    excellent overall clarity and definition. well done

    Hi Daniel
    always nice to see autumn scenes from around the globe.
    any new photos? although this one is pretty sweet as well, easy to see why you posted it.

    my favorite part has to be the orange leaves on the ground near the top.

    looking forward to more

    Hi Gert
    sorry for the late reply and lack of replies of late.

    I'm getting so frustrated with TE and its image quality when i post a photo. I've tried the 'hard refresh', it seems to have worked - for now. We'll see.

    as for your photo here, the first thing that came to mind was how long were these guys walking for? did they meander around the bends of the mountains in the bg? and how long do they still have to go?

    really enjoy the story, and its nice to hear that you actually remember this scene haha

    keep them coming

    Hi Bev
    Haha, i have a few photos like this in my personal gallery from our large Port of Vancouver. Just haven't gotten around to posting them.

    basically every subject in the scene has its own positives.
    love the cranes, love the two yellow vehicles, love the 2 rustic buildings in the bg and you can never go wrong with having a couple of boats in a scene with reflections.

    lots to like here.
    see you around

    haha..this is a shot that I usually post.
    the strong angles, strong lines, strong perspectives.

    you have captured some soft beautiful side lighting on that church, it stands out as the focal point to me.

    Hi John
    this scene reminds me of the famous dead looking tree we see in photos from Namibia :)

    not quite as dramatic of an environment as the one in Namibia, but beautiful still.

    in my opinion, whatever thats worth, the best part of the scene or the subject that makes the most impact is the brown grass.

    the brown/golden colors just pop out at us, and because the mountains in the bg are so dark, the fg comes alive.

    this is what i love about photography John. Think about how many people just drive by, walk by, or simple ignore a scene like this. But not a photographer with a keen compositional eye. well spotted and executed.

    cheers

    Hi Ray
    don't you just love Mark Twain!
    haha...i have a couple of his books, he's quite the writer, he certainly has a way with words.

    even with his description of this place, i'd still love to see it in person. Seems like the kind of place most people would avoid - that makes me want to see it even more.

    lots of rustic beauty from my eyes, love it

    excellent example of side lighting.
    and what makes it even better, is filling up the frame in the bg with the mountain scene.
    what could be better?
