    Ciao Silvio,
    il paesaggio naturale che ci presenti in questa foto e' impressionante e bellissimo. Infatti ci sono vari paesaggi in questa vista e la profondita' e' immensa. Il senso di altezza e' affascinante, si sente piu' in alto delle nuvole. La luce ha un' ottima qualita ed i colori sono naturali e meravigliosi. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e tutto il meglio,

    Hello Malgorzata,

    Whenever I see photo of the wilderness of Norway, I picture in my mind's eye the Vikings. No doubt they wandered into this cove one time or another. This is a serene view in the middle of summer. You asked whether we had ever been Lofoten, we have not. We have been to the North Cape a couple of times and remember having a photo taken at midnight with a clock right behind us, without any artificial light.

    Warmest regards,

    Bulent

    Ciao Silvio,
    com' e' spettacolare ed interessante questo paesaggio urbano, preservato ed utilizzato per tanti secoli. Belle ed invitanti le prospettive, stupendi i dettagli e molto gratificanti le variazioni delle architetture. Hai quasi riempito il quadro con il paesaggio, il cielo fa' un contrasto delizioso, le tonalita' armoniose sono piacevoli. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buona notte,

    Hello Joginder,
    I haven't seen many Babas (in pictures, of course) as young as the one you are presenting in this portrait. His straighforward gaze is intense and I get the impression that he wasn't totally still at the moment his picture was taken. There's naturalness and spontaneity, I think that Abmdsudi's processing has brought them out even more. An interesting person, the bright colours enhance his features and style even more. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely day,

    Hello Karolina,
    this is a superb portrait, minimal in its structure but from a very effective angle, that gives dynamism and evokes the contact between the singer and her audience. I like very much her expression, her posture that fills the frame, the atmospheric grey tones. The texture of her clothes add a graphical aspect. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Murat,
    a very attractive view, you are presenting it in an excellent composition with gorgeous colours. Rich colours make strong contrasts that render the scene so vibrant. Details and textures are interesting, the human presence neat and significant. Your picture makes a great advertisement for this extravagant place. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Ray,
    the landscape is awesome and your composition, giving so much emphasis on the shady area, is original and intriguing. I like this thorough view, where part of the "sculpted" rock formations stand out in the sunshine and the other part is almost silhouetted. I like the long shadows creeping cross the ground, the dark grey tones are alluring and there's no complaint about clarity. The mood is timeless. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonsoir Christian,
    this is an attractive picturesque fountain, it clearly has a long history in this place. It has kept its timeless aspect almost intact while the buldings around it have some modern additions. The wall in the background isn't so attractive but I like the glimpse of the facades along the street and the fine play of light that graces the scenery. The light and the red colours create a pleasing mood. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a good night,

    Hello Maciej,
    the red gondola is very attractive, you have placed it very well in the frame (sacrificing much of its reflection) so that there's a full, clear and unobstracted view to the Palace. Palace and surroundings seem to be very lovely, the sunshine and the colours are splendid. I also appreciate the clear view and the details, the sense of depth and the perspective. It's good that the people in the foreground are interested in the Palace too. The different colours of the gondola in the workshop give an entirely different mood. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a good night,

    Hello Noel,
    another attractive and interesting aspect of the grand Ashford Castle, it's easier to discern its present function as a hotel from this angle. Although it's too long to fit in the frame from this perspective, it offers a very rewarding view, the clarity of your picture is excellent. I also like the moody colours, the vague reflections and the sleek surface of the lake. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonsoir Nicou,
    lovely, elegant, dense graphism, it seems you can find it anywhere in nature and produce attractive, refreshing images with it. I love the play of lines and colours as well as the play with reflections and transparency. The tight framing enhances the graphic character of the scene, light and contrast management are superb. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Piotr,

    This is really one of the most beautiful photos in your rich gallery. Perched at the crest of the rugged mountains, you can see the drop off on the left immersed in soup fog, on the right, the details a sharp. I've heard of the rugged beauty of Slovakia, otherwise I know precious little about the difference in the Czech vs. Slovak sides. Again, this is a first rate photo.

    Hi Carlo
    its fun to capture these scene in dirty puddle water :)
    we have to look through the water to get the idea.
    love the wiggle and the movement of the architecture.

    wonderful looking shot you got here.
    the exposure of the lighting is spot on.
    and the way the buildings face us and fade away down to the left is attractive too, it flows smartly.

    Hello Jasmine,

    The light is genuinely beautiful on the Georgian house, bathing it in golden hues, and a highly distressed sky looming in the background. I think this is the best way to photograph some of the architecture anywhere. With a frequency of once per year I would see this sort of inspiring light while living in Oxford. Unfortunately it was during pre-digital photography days.

    Warm regards,

    Hi Pierre
    Oh yes, the BIG O.
    What is it being used for now?
    Looks like they have a new rooftop to it too.
    lots of good memories of this ballpark, attended many Montreal Expos games when I lived in Ottawa.

    thanks for this view, we don't see it enough on TE.
    cheers
