    Good evening Chris,
    Seeing this town, I can't forget what we saw in the TV during the 1993 war and what this place had endured. With no politics involve in my comment, and no judgement of who is to blame, those hills reminded me the snipers hiding in the woods and shooting/shelling the town.
    This picture is a very optimistic one, besides the beauty of the photo - it shows people can overcome wars, prosper and re-built beautiful city all over again. Pleasent to look at.
    Have a nice weekend,
    Ike

    Good evening Miguel,
    This could had been a wonderful night shot, it has all the necessary elements for a succesfull shot: snow covered pavement, light gloittering and action in front of RR station, which looks as a beautiful illuminated facade.
    Hand-holding camera, can never make it, in such cases one should use a tripod, and if no tripod available, place the camera on a ledge, on a shelve or even on a garbage can (I did this once).
    Nice trym, anyway.
    Regards,
    Ike

    Good evening Malgo,
    I was also "suffering" from too many people roaming and wondering throughout Firenze and its ancient streets, the crowd was not fun.
    Beautiful corner of the edifice, left just enough space to show the piazza and people on the right side.
    Bricks in different colors also an attractive element shown.
    Nice note written, archi.-design is unique, well shown.

    Fantastic scenery of the Q city along the widening part of the St. Lawrence river, Robert, excellent view across with fine clarity and DOF.
    The big cruise vessel is an eyes catching element, and also the yellow parasols stand contrast to the other marvelous multi-colors of the waterfront area. Pleasent to look at, fine photo.

    Bonsoir Philippe,
    I regard sundials as ancient wisdom, show how people realized nature's phenomenons and employed for their own benefit.
    Fine clear picture, light and colors enhanced the depicted chart. It show the hour was probably around 09:00 in the morning, to my humble understanding.

    Good evening Beverly,
    A most colorful scene in the spirit of old times.
    Some of the participants wearing cloths related to the place. Fine view of the castle gate and towers, good contrast by the tents and vivid with the people on the scene.
    Cheers.

    Inspite of the strong backlight from outside, Pierre, managed to show how those nobles were sleeping, nice bed with a wooden frame for a canopy.
    The beautiful chst / box is a nice added element.

    Great catch, Eleu, a small jet that was the first in unround numbers of MIG's airplanes: 17,19,21,23 now they seem to be stuck at 29...
    Initially, it was an immitation of the french Mister 3 and/or the Sabere F-86, which were much more excellent at those 1950th era. See this post.

    Beautiful colors of the brown soil, white rocks and green tres - all combined in one shot.
    Good DOF and sharp-details, long shadows on the afternoon made this so golden texture. Well collected the landscape.

    Buona sera Luciano,
    maybe you change the title, but I found the picture interesting and nice.
    The blond lady pipping through the embrasure, see the sea far beyond.
    Very claer shot. I saw Svety-Stefan from the road, and taken one swift picture from the bus, magnificent island.

    Hi Burak,
    I bet everyone would love to have the view of this beautiful structure in the collection. I had a plesure to visit it a while ago but without a proper camera and in the pre-digital times. So I am jealoussly looking at your picture here. You had a great sky: often in Athens the sky gets so grayish but you had a wonderful blue with touch of clouds.
    Great light and colors.
    Very well done,

    Hi John,
    I just love the sky here!
    The clouds are so pretty -they decorate the blue sky so nicely! The rural view works quite clean and tidy.
    Very attractive colors.

    Hi Daniel,
    I have travelled south from Porto through Coimbra and I don't know how could I miss Aveiro which I have seen afterwards so many beautiful photogaphs from.
    This one is quite encouraging too.
    I like very much those Portuguese pavements -so simple yet always beautiful and impressive.
    The buildings around are also stylish and very pretty, great presentation from an intersting angle.
    Excellent work!

    Hi Abmdsudi,
    I like the workshop pictures even more as they are showing how big and great this mansion is, however I see that by making this one main photo we can notice straight away the beautiful detailed decoration of the facade. It is amazing how elaborate it is.
    Very impressive and a completely unknown subject for me.
    Excellent work,
