    Hi Dale
    I was hoping you would have another view of this castle, and this view is great too, that upwards view makes the castle so imposing in this shot, it is a threatening menacing figure here. The trees again add a lot to the photo
    Cheers

    Hi Dale
    Great old castle, my favorite subject! The red and grey walls are cool and the angle you chose to shoot makes the building very long, it rises from ruins on the outside to what looks like an occupied middle. Really nice to include the tree on the right too, the green is very vibrant and really brightens up the photo
    Cheers

    Hi Casper
    Your patience paid off and I love how you describe the arrival of this light, it adds a lot to the photo. The result is very beautiful indeed, the cloud layer makes the mountain almost float and creates that extra layer. Cool photo

    Hi Luis
    There is some amount of detail in that house, and taking the photo in this light allows that detail to pick out great amounts of shadow, giving depth and really enhancing the colors. Very interesting architectural shot

    Hi Serge
    I love your title. The title does capture the view and is an epic view. the light on the mountain is superb and sky has a great and unusual tint to it which seems to be in the mountain face too. Very nice photo

    Hi Stephen

    Great architectural photo and document, these are very cool buildings, there is something almost playful about their design. the sky behind is brilliant and I always love a combination of red brick on blue sky

    Hi Ourania
    Even from the thumbnail the star of this photo for me was the flag, which you have very cleverly placed on a great position. Even in black and white, I recognised the flag right away (the benefit of not having the three boring stripes haha) . The photo has a great sense of pride and perhaps the man felt the same way. the perspective of the pier is very cool
    Cheers

    Beautiful little building and nice in the reflection too. The trees make great almost sinister silhouettes. Nicely done with very difficult light

    Hi Ken
    Fascinating place, I love ruins and this looks like a great place to photograph. Funnily, the building reminds me of a place in Ireland I've photographed called the wonderful barn. Somebody commented on that pic that it looked eastern! Interesting post, thanks

    Hi Christiane
    Despite this being such a well known hotel, I have never seen this view of the inside, so really cool for me to see this. Is an excellent recreation and the scene and photo are brimming with color, life and vivaciousness to the point of kitsch (in a good way!). Thanks for sharing a new place to me

    Hi Fara
    A beautiful moment, very calm and peaceful despite the beautiful active sky. The tranquility of the water and pier really offsets the threat from above. Cool colors and contrast too

    Hi Rob
    Incredibly impressive combination of design, moment, light and shadow. This is a wonderful building and you captured an image of it I imagine the architect would love. great photo, thanks for taking me about a building I didn't know.

    That's an impressive building, is scale is huge inside this square and the people in the scene give a great appreciation for the size. Great composition too with the building off centre

    Beautiful little white church and it's windows and doors look almost like a smiling face. Wonderful depth brought by the gentle curve of the shoreline leading right into the view

    Very well seen, is not often a construction site can offer a cool abstract photo like this but you tacky have made the most of the fine distorted reflections here to create a very eye-catching and colourful photo

    Hi Philippe
    That's a beautiful temple, and it looks you had very difficult light which you have handled really well. The inclusion of the people gives excellent scale, without them I would have thought this structure to be a lot smaller

    Perfect timing to capture these three young lads in mid air like this, usually a sign of great speed to catch this kind of scene. They look like they are really putting in the effort too, very nice Street photo

    Hello Gert,
    I wouldn't feel very comfortable seeing polca dots everywhere around me, I wonder what the little boy thinks of the installation. I like watching him enjoying his play on the swing though and I think that this setting will offer him many more ideas to play. The sunshine and the colours are wonderful but, in my opinion, the bright facade to the left is a little distracting. The sculptures presented in the workshop are very interesting, that picture has a very different atmosphere which is challenged by the polka dots again. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely weekend,
    Ourania

    Hello Malgo,
    the light is brilliant and gives tremendous impact to the already attractive colours. I like how you placed the church tower and organized the background, the inclusion of the tulips was a great idea. I like very much the layers of colours and textures in the lower part, the atmosphere of your picture looks so festive. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely weekend,
    Ourania
