    Hello Daniel,
    I like very much this creative depiction of an architecture that is both elegant and imposing. You emphasized colours and contrasts in a bold and impressive way, the architectural features look graphically attractive, there's a fascinating play of repeating details, light and shadows. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    I like very much this creative approach to a timeless and absolutely fascinating theme. It's great you found ways to play with the architecture and bring us close both to some of its most distinctive features and to the lovely colours and patterns of the decoration. Perspective and definition are superb, the light and the blue sky set off the colours of the facade. The workshop pictures are great too, they show that there's a wealth of photo opportunities on this site. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Bonsoir Nicou,
    another of your great finds, fine abstract art created by Nature and exalted by your well-considered composition. There's a delightful rhythm in this scene and the diagonal offers playful contrast. The glass-like texture and the soft tones on the icicles are very pleasing to view. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Piotr,
    an interesting architectural landscape, I like very much the view you selected for this composition, the shapes have been arranged in a graceful way and a fine light brightens the scene and creates intriguing contrasts. I like the play of light, shadows and reflections all over the geometrical setting. Congratulations and thank you!

    Ciao Carlo,
    e' grande ed impressionante questo Arco di Trionfo, e' vero che l' architettura e' un po' esaggerata ma gli da' un aspetto sicuramente particolare. Mi piace la forte definizione ed i colori brillanti e contrastanti. Le ombre circondanti fanno una cornice effettiva, quelle sul monumento aggiungono tocchi di grafismo e di solennita'. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buona serata,

    Hello dear Mesut,
    the little boy is very cute and has an interesting personality, I like the way he expresses it through his posture and expression. The soft, red sweater is a marvellous element, a very attractive and powerful colour against the gritty grey textures. Sharpness, light and shadows work wonderfully too, giving a very vivid impression. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Bonsoir cher Philippe,
    I think that it is a good idea, if you can afford it, but it may be a great waste of water sometimes. Your picture shows how it also freshens and lightens the ambiance, adding light, pleasant reflections and colours. I like the low point of view, the bright, sunny colours and the contrast offered by the shadows. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Ciao Silvio,
    molto bella la vista sulla piazza e gli edifici significativi della citta', mi piace che hai incluso anche il monumento centrale ed alcune persone. La vista sulle montagne del paesaggio circondante e' magnifica. Mi piacciono molto tanto le tonalita' calorose dentro la citta quanto quelle piu' deboli nelle ombre e nel paesaggio. Hai gestito colori ed illuminazione superbamente. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buona serata,

    Hi Chris
    Beautiful view and how cool to hear that this palatial building has found new use, it is far too nice a building to be let decay. I really like the temple style building in the foreground too,it is unusual for me to see this style of building painted. Even in my home city of Dublin, all of the porticos are left as grey stone, the paintwork adds a great element of liveliness. Very attractive photo and congratulations on your milestone :)
    Cheers

    Hi Kari
    I am glad to read this is a wedding, I thought with all the black that perhaps it was a funeral. Though a sombre event like that would suit this place,its a rather sombre building, especially set in the cold snow like this. The red brick stands out so beautifully against the white snow and blue sky too. Great photo
    Cheers

    Hola Angel,
    this natural arcade is enormous, a very impressive natural structure, the dark tones in your tight composition make it look even more imposing. The play of light enriches the scene and enhances the sense of depth. The people offer a fascinating sense of scale. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hi Costantino
    This view could be a thousand years old, the modern world has not at all impacted the the beauty of this place. The buildings seem almost to pour over the hills like architectural lava. You got beautiful light for your photo too. The people and few vehicles on the road give an excellent sense of scale. Great photo.

    Hello Andrew,
    this apartment is in a most fascinating neighbourhood, it must be wonderful to live there. The view from the bathroom window has some pleasing and some not very attractive parts, the warm afternoon light has surely made it look allurinng. I like the effect of the shadows and the red chimneys, the reflections on the left and the pale blue sky. It's great how the light has warmed up the grey tones, distinguishing them from those remaining in the shade. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Ciao Luciano,
    una trovata molto bella ed interessante, ottima la tua composizione dalla finestra del museo, ci presenta effettivamente uno scenario urbano con elementi tipici ma anche con particolarita intriganti. Mi piacciono le prospettive originali ed il grafismo. La qualita' della luce ha reso le ombre morbide ed i colori sono armoniosi. L' ingresso in mezzo alle scalinate fa' un punto focale forte. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buona serata,

    Hi Jorge
    In all the shots I have seen of this place, I don't recall ever seeing this level of detail in the buildings surface,its really beautiful. I like the little resident in the shot too, you have new inhabitants in their home captured well.

    Hi Murat
    This is a really eye-catching photo,and I think it's because of the two very visible white columns we can see my eye was drawn to them as soon as I saw the gallery. They are placed perfectly in the frame too.

    Hi Luciano.
    I didn't realise these were stairs, I thought it was just some odd design on a footpath. Very cool view, and knowing they are stairs makers it all the more dizzying. Cool sight, thanks for sharing

    Hi Angel
    This is a great view of this place and I can understand its name a little better now too. Brilliant views through the rock formations and with great light that brings out the blue of the water really well. At first I thought it a sdhame that the person was in the photo, but on better look they add scale to the concentric arches.
    Best wishes
