    Neyvan, hi, you have a great collection of travel photos from Argentina and your country. Your contribution and the notes can be a great source of reference. Norway is a country on my wish list, but for the northern lights, how come you have not captured the aurora ? I guess its the winter conditions that make it possible to see it, you travelled in june.

    Lovely lead into the gompa, now i can relate to this structure from ones in morocco. They are called "Kasbahs". The concept is the same, the design is different. Man has evolved quite similarity, even at the remote corner, at the edge of africa, they decided to build the same things on mountain tops.

    intriguing light given the overcast sky.

    Its about finding right symmetry first and then the light. Sometime i just step back and wonder if this is best representation of Man, patience and simplicity.

    Photographers can barely resist anything that evokes that feeling for even a fraction of a second. be it people or places. We crave for that feeling that just lasts for a second, and then voila...we have something that could last a thousand years.

    I remember doing this tour, was it the red tour, or the yellow tour was it ? This place is exotic, isn't it. Am happy you have shared these here, i crashed out with a few from turkey owing to a transition in personal life etc..

    Oh i just loved this one from the thumbnail and now this is bliss, wonder if i ever will go back, the love seems to have perished, but i have respect for the grand old mountains and the people, something seems lost. But when i see such photos it evokes strange feelings, this is where i started, wonder what changed.

    beautiful photo my friend, the thin blue intrusion of the lake, serene.

    question - do those solar panels actually work ?

    I too couldn't resist looking at another rainy day picture, here in mumbai, it rains for a few months, fills the lakes, the lakes overflow, the roads break up like biscuits. But the best part, the city always keeps moving, through kilometres long traffic, through grounded vehicles, potholes and craters, ( certain parts of the city have a moon like surface, you have to see it to believe it Rose..)

    But i love the city with its defects, but hey, the rain does that to the city..finally the Monssons have receded and boom another rainy day photo, but the energy in this photo is distracting, it distracts me from the dull gloomy surrounding, and why ? because you have pretty girls, pretty girls with the boyfriends, girls with their girlfriends, the scene come ALIVE..

    you managed to catch the attention of one, overall, something that i too would have shot, just to feel life, feel the rain !

    take care

    You are into wildlife as well, i am getting to know you slowly :)

    Well, talking of seinfeld, the first that comes to my mind is Kramer barging into the room, through the door in one continoues motion, and delivering his lines. Gosh, i have not watched the series for a long time now, but every character in the series in just fascinating, i think George is a genius, then comes Kramer, Jerry, and Elaine..hahaha, thats my preference in order.

    the photo, you have talked about patience, i think wildlife and street is about patience, the results show. good stuff

    Hello Anghsu,

    this one much like the hagia sofia, what caught my eyes most was the natural light, designed in such a way, that it filled every corner of the mosque (or should i say a cathedral of a church first)..

    Splendid details in this one ! gotta be HDR ?

    Hey Rosemary, a photo here with the perfect balance, the combination of colours, the swooping dragon, or could be the bull with the serpent tail, the scattered graffiti, perfect, i can tell you from the thumbnail the visual appeal was really good, more could happen around this scene but its a matter of availability..

    take care

    Yes the pleasure is immense when you see it in front of you cos the terrain is very similar to the upper himalayas back in north india, but the pleasure is greater if you have made nice crisp, pretty photo !

    no burn, the snow perfectly exposed, the sun kissing the curves, no loss of detail, nice my man..

    An intelligent and well executed landscape photo. the scale, light, the lines, the framing, perfect. that is quite a hike from where you are, at a higher elevation. man, one needs to be fit to enjoy iceland, isn't it ?

    thats quite a tech detail in the note, all i am interested is in the final appeal and value of the photo and there is a lot of it, there is more happening to the left of the frame than the right, but again you cannot intrude their private space as they spin the wheels of prayer..yet a good photo my friend..

    Again the intricate play of light and shadow makes the photo here, the subject is pushed slightly just short of the perfect balance, but that is alright, love the reds in there..

    Another scan, this one has details in the shadows too, quite remarkable how you set the exposure and the metering of the film camera, most digital camera would lose details at the bottom below the arch..the minarets is it, in the background an apt inclusion, four sided ones would mean a mosque for men..wish i could see the whole series on Jerusalem..

    nice weekend..

    I prefer these compositions to the singular ones cos you catch light and the human poise with great aesthetic. you keep it simple and very objective. wish i could see the flow of hair. Interesting partition of the room with the wall art with figuriens.

    nice one Recep.

    more than angry, looks like he was casting a spell on you so that you disappear immediately. or he could be just saying, what does he find so interesting in these street ? the marketplace is always a great place to de-stress with the camera..

    Hi Klaudio..

    a neat scan of the negative is it ? a sobre mood with the cloud cover, the dome still catching the light, a couple of people at the wall with prayers and chants, others just pedestrians, a historic and holy place and the photo presents the exact mood.

    an important one

    regards..
