    Hi Takero
    love this village...i'll have to see it for myself some day soon perhaps :)

    such a strange combination of straw rooftops and wooden buildings, they're beautiful - especially when you add in those flowers!!!!

    sweet shot.
    enjoy your Sunday

    Hi Pavle
    I noticed this photo on the 'critique' page and I just had to take a closer look.

    having that green boat really does add alot to the scene, it works so well with the bridge.

    love the depth, the colors, and the long perspectives.
    its a beauty

    Hello Ally,

    You were observant picking up on the strange practice of topping trees at precisely the same height, like the "flat-top haircuts" some men would have in the 1960s. I like your note that explains the practice of Topiary.

    Warm regards,

    Hi Wolfgang
    I have to be honest, I enjoyed Abu Dhabi more than Dubai...how about you?

    and of course its always funny for some reason to see a group of tourists like this :)

    and is that green grass on the left? don't see that much in this area of the city!
    thanks for this city/beach shot

    Hi Ney
    another beauty!
    I like this one alot because of the stark contrast between the two pieces of landscape.
    they are similar yet also so different.
    the cloudless sky isn't my favorite, but it works well here to bring in another color to the scene.
    excellent clarity and exposure
    cheers

    Hi Adrian
    what brought me to this photo was the color combinations and contrasts.

    that red/rust stone is beautiful, its quite attractive, especially with the blue/grey angled rooftop too.

    lovely shot

    Hi Gert
    sadly, this is what happens when I work Night shifts at the hospital for 12-14 hours...I didn't even know about this earthquake until i read your note.

    what a disaster, I just looked it up, they're saying approx 2000 dead.

    one could only imagine the devastation of the city with the old buildings, probably easily crumbling to the ground. Terrible news.

    Makes me think about the "Big One" that experts say will hit Vancouver - we are due as well - infact OVER due for a large scale earthquake. and we sit on a major fault line. To be honest, I still think about it every time I drive over one of our many bridges in the city.

    Nice to see India come with plenty of Aid, to help out their neighbour.

    thoughtful post today for sure

    Hi Paul
    easy to see why this shot has been so popular for you, its a winner in my books too.

    now I want to sit here and have a bite to eat aswell.
    love seeing all the bridge spans, and even a secondary bridge in the bg too.

    love the overall atmsophere of the scene with buildings, people and bridges.

    and yes, good on you to celebrate any # you wish :)
    cheers

    Hi Eleu
    this car is a beast!
    love the simple presentation here at this car show.
    super colors with this sky blue, white and lots of chrome on that bumper :)

    hard to believe collectors will pay 50-60-70 thousand dollars for these cars! but they do.

    love this shot

    PS
    and yes, i had a bit of a brain cramp regarding the Cirque Du Soleil shows...for some reason I thought they were just in one hotel, but you're correct, they're in several

    Bonjour, mon ami Philippe,

    You post quicker than usually, but your picture is very nice as nature picture with the seagull between the green area.
    Excellent reflection of the trees in the water.
    Also a nice depth and perspective.
    Composition and presentation make your picture attractive.
    Sharpness and clarity are pleasant to look at.
    Very well done, TFS.

    Amitiés, et bonne dimanche,
    John.

    Dag Gerrit,

    De rookpluim in de achtergrond laat vermoeden dat daar wel even brand zou kunnen zijn.
    Nochtans een zeer mooie foto met verschillende torens die wijzen op oude gebouwen.
    Een totaal andere foto of the beelden uit de wildernis op de fiets.
    Heel mooi foto werk, bedankt.

    Prettige zondag,
    John.

    Hi Noel
    this reminds me of the new Olympic Park region here in Vancouver...new modern appartment buildings on land what was otherwise just a dumpy area with ugly old buildings..but the winter Olympics a few years ago totally changed all of that.

    Now its an area full of young families and young 20 year olds, with pubs and upscale restaurants and amazing city views, appartments high in demand. You'll also see many people jogging and exercising,
    sounds kind of similar here.

    great to see new views of Dublin, and I hope more places will pop up just like this one - its Progress right?!

    cool shot of your city, but I bet those red poles are a pain exposure-wise at night!

    see you around
    Craig

    Good light management for this well composed image. The old stone steps entice the viewer in with the aim of exploring further. Very good rendering of all that lovely textural detail.

    Hi Kari
    It may be stereotypical, but when I think of Switzerland - i think of images such as this.

    calm waters, snow capped mountains, and very few people :)

    excellent placement of the horizon line along the bottom third, thats perfect.
    excellent exposure in this light too.

    Hi John
    you know what this place reminds me of? Iceland!
    driving around the country this is what you'll often find over and over again.

    beautiful isn't it?

    too bad we couldn't take those charming white puffy clouds with us where ever we go! those clouds are the bomb! haha

    love it too, when we can see the rocks beneath the water, thats a nice touch too.

    what can I say, sweet lines, excellent compo, reflections, blue sky/clouds, depth....here's hoping to more and more days like these for you!!

    cheers

    Hi Lisa
    Very original observation seen from the windscreen producing a minimalist shot with abstract quality and tx to your descriptions guiding us thru. That's what I call photography and yes I'm suffering lens envy now! The enchanting colour & lines really hold the eye well screaming out 'Frame me'...

    Great image well timed precisely, Congrats.

    Hi Chris
    isn't Prague the best!!!!!!!!!!!
    and that isn't meant to put down any other great city, its just that Prague is...well...Prague!

    Its also a city that i'd love to visit in the winter, when its sprinkled with snow...that would be picturesque as well.

    in your scene there are countless city landmarks, you've got a number of them here.

    the lighting may not have been perfect for you, but the result is still an attractive one.
    cheers
