    Hi Abmdsudi
    great to see the eyes on the lady on the right.
    she is totally fixated on the goods, and i'm sure she got them in the end too.

    this is certainly a unique pov, and when you can capture a scene from a unique pov it makes it a 1000 times better!

    I also like seeing how the water is black on the bottom right, thats interesting.
    fun cultural photo in all this activity
    good work
    cheers

    Hi Mesut
    I've been really enjoying your little series from Balat. Balat is a great place to take some photos of old buildings and homes.

    lots of textures and lots of colors here too.
    so much history to be enjoyed, and people are still enjoying the homes.

    nice shot
    cheers

    Hi Boa
    great looking shot from India.
    love these busy street scenes.
    there's always something to spot and to investigate.
    the old cars surprise me a bit as the photo was taken in 1989, not 1959!
    awesome post

    Hey Jason
    well, look who's back on the prowl...like a cougar searching for a cub...and i'm not talking about the animals lol

    good to have you back on TE again.

    I guess this is the real life of today, in the 21 century isn't it.

    I still believe in my heart that THIS WILL PASS.
    in the future, say 100 years in the future, we will ALL be laughed at - sort of how we look at the medeival times today.

    These cell phones are just the beginning...and something much better, even more interactive is going to rear its ugly head - making the 'cell phone' look like a bow and arrow to todays soldier.

    know what i mean?
    what do you think?

    fun capture though, brings up alot of discussion...which is kinda ironic because nobody is talking in the photo lol

    Titans are looking good for a top 5 pick in the draft!!!

    see you around

    Hi Serghei
    this is one of those cute everyday life street shots.
    very cool indeed.
    I like how there are patches of bright colors, and it looks like they're mixed with alot of greys.

    funny hot its seems like most people in this scene are looking to the left...whats going on to the left that has everyone's attention?

    fun shot

    yeah, he's not looking too pleased with you at all.

    was it a tele lens? were you far away from him?

    Hey Lisa
    so sad, no words will be able to put it into the correct context. to be honest i'm even struggling for words right now as i write this note.

    One of our soldiers died a few weeks ago as you've probably heard, in a similar type of incident.

    is it just me or was the world NOT like this about 10-15 years ago?
    so sad

    Hi Paul
    another beauty from Tokyo.
    as much as I love the city scenes, these unique shots are just as great.

    the black areas of the frame are actually the most important, it allows the lights to shine and shine brightly.

    and I really appreciate the curve, the flow of the lights in the frame too.
    excellent shot

    Hello Ana,
    This is a nice composition and a nice way to write the short menu. The small lamp is another fine little detail. This all looks very carefully planned to appeal to city people who have gone to the countryside for a day.

    Hello Serghei,
    Another fine shot. Also an amusing note. It's quite typical that the only ones who are not embarrassed to go close to street musicians are small children.It seems like the drummer isn't actually drumming at the moment and the little boy is probably wondering why. Most people in the background don't seem to care much. Maybe they have heard it all before. It's a nice scene, well captured, with an abundance of details to watch.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Mesut,
    Paople at work are really among my favourite subjects, at least for watching. It's always so interesting to see people produce the things I see in the markets and just take for granted. Also small workshops like this often have a great atmosphere that is perfect for photos. This man's ancient tools, the smoke and the glowing pieces of coal are very enjoyable to watch.
    KInd regards,

    Hello Denis

    I cant understand why this superb image didn't garner more attention! It lacks nothing. Good sharpness, color, saturation, composition, nice light contrasts, splendid warm cold color contrasts between blue and red, great texture in the fg stone wall, lovely compositional excellence and architectural variety. Tfs!

    Hello, Georg!

    Good pp work that has given this image the look of an Aquarelle water color painting! I like the soft pastel colors and superb pp work. Perspective has been well managed with the verticals placed centrally. A subtle warm cold color contrast between the pale blue and red. Tfs!

    Hello Véronique,
    Night is falling but the sun still reaches the top of the hill, which is beautifully reflected in the calm water.The small "islands" of green grass give a kind of dynamism to the foreground. It's a very well exposed photo with excellent balance of darker and lighter areas.

    Ciao Romano,

    I love the robotic figurehead on the prow of this artwork ship. Good sharpness, saturation and color. The red men on ropes and the yellow crane contrast superbly against the blue bg. The splash of greenery bottom left adds to the palette. Smart choice of a vertical frame. Tfs!

    Hi Sasha

    Perfect use of a shallow dof to isolate and emphasise the sharply defined fg bird. Marvellous density levels that have given good light contrasts, superb saturation levels, and excellent crisp clean whites and blacks. Its rust red breast contrasts nicely against the blue grey bg. Good to have caught a reflection in the bird's eye too. Tfs!
