    Hi Olivier
    Very nice take of this little party town, the olds you caught are great and the angle is really good to make the most of the reflection. I know this town as I used to go camping on the site on the other side of the big long bridge. When I woke up one morning in two inches of water and covered in centipedes, I swore never again :) the dark clouds look brilliant in combination to the brightly lit vibrant buildings.

    Hi Roland,
    This is like the cover of a classic album, all the figures on the bikes are placed perfectly while the black and white treatment is really nicely done to make the most of the strong shadows. Very nicely seen.

    Hi Carlo
    This is a great way to show this fine architectural scene, reflected in the already interesting view of this old shop front. Nicely composed and interesting view!

    Hi Danos
    A magical golden sunset and the boat and mountain create fine gentle silhouettes breaking the horizon at just the right places. Great composition.

    Hi Miguel
    These colorful post it notes bring a great sense of liveliness and brightness to this scene, so much so that it makes me look deeper into a scene that would normally make me shudder (I hate fish!) nice scene from daily life.

    Hi Paul,
    This is a fantastic view and a brilliant idea to fame the whole scene with this interesting natural rock formation. The green colors are so alive with this wonderful light shining across them. Class shot.

    Hi Luis
    A beautiful cathedral and a very good way to display it, the slice of vibrant blue in the lower part of the frame is really nicely done. Lovely golden light all across the view too.

    Very impressive building, and you chose a great angle to shoot from, you captured a great amount of detail and filled the frame really nicely. Great management of light.

    Hi Maria,
    An excellent view of this square and it's many fine buildings, and an excellent idea to include the man in black. It makes me smile to e that he pays no regard at all to the amazing display of history and architecture all around, but I guess we all become too used to those things we see everyday, great timing on this.

    Hi Ourania,
    What a view :) these windmills are an attractive and most unusual way to build modern apartments, and I like them a lot, they fit in so well with the surrounding land. I would sit for hours and stare at every single little building in this scene, an attractive view, I can almost smell the sea and feel the fresh breeze.
    Thanks as always

    Hi John,
    Your composition on this is really beautiful, especially how you have composed the great portico on the extreme left. It gives an excellent sense of the majesty of the building while also allowing a great wide open view of the river and the oth architectural jewels all around. I love the light and rich colors too.

    Hi John,
    Thank you indeed for this fascinating note, it tells well the history of this powerful and imposing building and helps to understand how any building can effect generations to come, even if those generations dont know of its existence.
    And thank you for the beautiful photo to accompany it, your composition invites the viewer in to explore a little more, while the fine stone walls towering above us remind us that it is by invite only that one can actually see this place, without one of tho boulders rolling down the stairs :) textures, colors, everything in this is beautiful.

    Hi Craig,
    Nothing like a bit of time travel to make a beautiful pic, and you've proven that well. It is amazing how much this could easily pass as a pic from decades ago. Even the woman you point out, I would ot be able to place her in any specific time.
    I'm amazed how much like Capitol Hill this great building looks, the light and especially the great dome. I am so much more used to seeing this city look more Spanish influenced, so a plant surprise to find this great classical giant in the heart of all the wonderful traditional buildings. Lovely wide open space too, that gives deserved grandeur to the building.
    Cheers

    Hi Ray,
    All across, this is a beautiful shot, rich color and fantastic light. But I find myself being drawn into the reflection where I see all the treetops pointing into the sky / depths. Fine calm reflection and a great way to bring interest to the water area of the scene. Really cool composition.

    Hi Agnes
    This is a great composition on this beautiful place, I really like how the buildings rise from the rocks right on the edge of the water. You captured beautiful detail and colors in the clouds while retaining great detail in the buildings, I would have had to choose one or the other :)
    Great shot, thanks for sharing.

    Hi Rosemary,
    This is epic, a beautiful statue and you have added so much to it with your great note. Alone, the statue would make a brilliant subject but composing it in front of this fantastic example of cathedral architecture. Even the sky has added a soft, subdued mood,
    really nicely done.

    Hi Jason,
    I really like this upwards view, gives great scale to the cathedral, especially with the tourists in the frame too. And I don't know what you mean about the weather, looks to me like a glorious day :) besides, if weather is an indication of moral virtue, then the population of Ireland must be the most evil in the world!! The domes golden surfaces shine so brightly, the most beautiful aspect of orthodox architecture to me.

    It seems to me that even the grand palace behind is looking in awe at the religious marvel.
    Cheers from the sog side, we are battening down for that storm that hit Bermuda last week. I love a good storm :)

    Hello Satya,
    a simple and quiet composition showing the devastating effect of the cyclone in a stunning way. It's good that you included the cyclist in the frame, he is well placed with the greater part of the destruction behind him. It's relieving to see that the road has been cleared and that someone is moving in this setting with a purpose although it's not easy to recover from the sight. The tonal treatment is superb, the greys are warm and look as if they are on the verge of turning into colour. The workshop picture looks so pleasant and peaceful in comparison to this scene. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely day,
    Ourania
