    Hello Jorge,
    I think such taxes for entering other states, or shipping goods between the states, are to be abolished because they slow down the economic development. Disregarding bureaucracy this is a fine photo which looks like India could have looked like many decades ago, except maybe for the car to the left. It is a timeless image, an impression which is underscored by the conversion to B&W.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Carlo,
    The artificial waterfall is located in a beautiful scenery where the grey rocks rising from the water provided you with a dynamic composition. There is a fine variety between rocks, water, trees and hills, all of which are bound together by the even line of water rushing down.
    Kind regards,

    Buongiorno Gianfranco,
    Your note solve a question I intended to ask, where this boat came from, as I saw the Arabic inscription written on this beautifully painted boat.
    But the vivid color not telling the real story behind those boat: the human migration across the Mediterranean sea.
    Fine photo, light and colors were immaculately collected.
    Ciao,

    Good morning Aleksandar,
    magnificent same design of the domes in juxtaposition shown from a higher point. Its red and brown colors contrast beautifully with blue sea and sky, a visibility that was superior on the day taken.

    An astonishing subject, Bulent, and every time I see a plane lift-off the ground I can't imagine its no miracle. Basically, planes have the same aerodynamic features as the Wright brothers so marvelously employed more than 100 years ago, only technology had made an advanced paces in time.

    Hello Will,

    I've never went to Siena, so was you sat near these two when you done this picture?

    Seriously, Will (or should that be "Went"?), this is a wonderful candid shot, perfectly taken with spot-on timing and with stunning technical quality too. Most of us can spend time lining up a landscape shot to get good composition and quality and many of us can take quick candid shots, but to take a quick candid shot on the spur of the moment and still achieve such image quality shows a rare ability.

    Yes, colour was definitely the better choice here, not only because it lets us admire the young lady's colourful and neat hair but because I also suspect that, converted to black and white, this image would have a more stark and contrasty and "gritty" appearance which would not suit the serenity which she, in particular, displays.

    The moment is perfect as each of the subjects takes a pause before going in for another lick of their ice cream - perhaps they have seen you - perhaps not - and, though obviously a couple, their attire is quite different: the man demonstrating a somewhat "macho" appearance with his torn jeans though I suspect his jacket and wrist watch are most likely expensive; while she is the epitome of elegance, immaculately dressed and similarly sporting what appear to be expensive accessories.

    Your composition is excellent, the light on the faces of the subjects perfect, the colours natural and the details and sharpness exquisite against a nicely out of focus background.

    Fabulous!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Dear Takero,

    You have taken your skills as a first class photographer of rituals and parades to Mexico. This is a lovely, colorful shot of the traditional natives, descendants of the Aztecs, with the Spanish Cathedral looming in the back. I see we are neighbors. Here it is Aug. 24, 2:00 in the morning.

    Warm regards,

    Bonjour Denis,
    Wonderful phenomenon shown on this beautiful low-tide picture.
    Here in Israel tide differentials are about 40cm on the Mediterranean coast, and I only saw few meters tides in Perce', Canada. So, for me this is a unique sight - which you managed an excellent photo of.
    Au revoir,

    Hello Craig,
    Yet another wondeful view over the rocky hills around. Seeing the high cliff above the port and houses - hope you had found the drone in an easy way, though it looks challanging.

    Hi Luis
    what actually first grabbed my attention was how the woman's shoes match the exact same colour as her shirt :)

    as for the photo itself, I like the uphill progression and depth you got with this one.

    I also like the addition of the painting behind the lady.
    excellent lighting and exposure, not too dark not too bright.
    cheers

    Hi Pierre
    now this is more than worthy of a TE post, what a wonderful little house in the woods.

    love the steep roofline, and the choice of trim colours with the blue and red stand out so well. It has that great worn and aged look to it.

    great subject

    Hi Denis
    reminds me alot of some small fishing villages I seen in the UK. very photogenic aren't they.

    excellent 1/3 placement of the dried out ocean floor, while the remaining 2/3 are the homes and sky.

    lovely exposure settings and clarity, looks great
