    Hi Rob
    A keen observation and captured - seen from this view point although I feel a bit disoriented initially. It's nicely registered with some vivid colours, detail, glowing light and reflections that keep my attention, although I feel sincerely, that the brightest area outside is slightly over exposed. Lovely overall shot nevertheless. Congrats

    Hi Gyorgy
    Street people provide interesting visual aspect of everyday life as they welcome attention, so by adding this smartly dressed elderly - who looks like a busy man-about-town to a street scene, photograph gives it own story to be formed in viewer's mind. The environment also offers another perspective to daily urban lives......
    Good observation, Congrats

    Hello Alexandre,

    Missed this one. Good to have some light in the sky to enhance the graphism. The orange sunset tints are a distinct bonus. They also contrast well with the blue hues. Perfect sharpness too. Tfs!

    Hi Ally
    Thanks for the explanations as this view can make someones feel so serene especially in the later afternoon. It's impressive looking park by the lake with the welcoming 'bell' on the hilltop hooking the focus of interest, pleasantly composed this way with bit of fg giving a sense of depth and the beautiful tree lends this a pleasing touch. A lovely detailed work and visually balanced. Excellent.

    Hi Murat
    A beautiful sight on a brill day light using the tree as natural framing directing the eyes into the imposing historical building with some other attractive complementing features. A spotless shot with excellent colour scheme, seen from from this pov. Well done, Congrats.

    Hi Philippe
    Superb recession when the long road draws the eye and the trees act as stoppers leading the flows to the layers of diff colours occupying the bottom and mid frame. Lovely how the bright yellow band sparkles as effective colour contrast gluing the eyes in on this expensive open landscape. All the elements just work in harmony capped by the blue sky, thanks to your description, Well done shot. Congrats

    Hi Fred
    I'm sure you know about Noel on TE :)
    he's posted many shots of many Irish Castles and Irish notable subjects...now we have another with your photo here.

    looks like you had a fine March Day, the sun is out, no rain, can't complain about that.

    nice to have the little bridge included in the scene, and we can get a great view of the Castle, still looks very strong.

    excellent POV and lighting all around
    cheers

    Hi Noel
    I see you have an Australian Visitor in Dublin :)
    thats cool! I'm sure you guys have enjoyed a drink or two already :)

    easy to see why this sculpture is so popular with the locals, why wouldn't it be right? its quite elegant.

    its the kind of subject that when you look at it, it makes you stop for a moment and just 'think'. Not many things in life do that.

    and here you go shooting directly into the sun again lol
    have a good one!
    cheers

    Hi MT
    Pittsburgh is a city thats high on my list to visit. It doesn't get the attention as New York, LA, Chicago or Boston, but I think its well worth a visit.

    We don't see many Pittsburgh shots here on TE, you seem to have most of the photos! I wonder why travellers don't come here.

    I chose this one from your Pittsburgh series because i LOVE baseball, and this is a very unique POV

    great addition to have the yellow Foul Pole.
    love the downwards POV, worked out wonderfully.
    smart looking shot
    cheers

    Hi Christiane
    its great to see the scale of the huge wall of stone on the left, pretty darn big isn't it!

    nice to have some blue sky on the right for colour contrast aswell.

    love the orange dirt road, its like you're on a totally different planet! sweet shot

    Hi Lars
    what can i say? its perfectly exposed, the moon is clearly seen and its not just a white over-bright ball, so thats very nice and attractive.

    the towns' buildings are a bit shaded and give an excellent contrast to the pale blue sky above them.
    lots of charm here
    cheers

    Hi Krzysztof
    very interesting building facade.
    I wonder if that glass is deliberately purple, or is that some sort of light refraction going on to change it from blue to purple?

    Certainly different from most buildings i bet!
    nice lighting and colours

    Hi Daniel
    as i've mentioned before in some of my critiques, in the OLD DAYS all across Europe, it was the LAW which stated Churches and Cathedrals had to be the tallest buildings in the city.

    We can clearly see that Law into effect here, the domed Cathedral is EASILY the tallest.

    Times and laws change. It would be great to see some sky scrapers :)

    never seen this Pano of the city before, its great to see.
    maybe in 20 years it will look very different.
    fine post

    Hi Malgo
    for some reason, when i'm looking at the three photos together as a group it made me think about the old man...how does he feel about us as photographers doing this?

    It made me feel actually a little sad for him. it makes me wonder if we are bothering him, especially when the photos are taken so close to his face.

    I know I wouldn't feel comfortable having my photo taken like that.

    but we as photographers do this alot, so it made me feel sympathy for the person, and I felt for this man on the street.

    I wonder how he feels about Havana being taken over by tourists like you and me...i bet he would like to have a more quite city?

    anyways, it has given me lots to think about.
    the 3 photos together show how his personal space was invaded a little bit. Now I feel bad for when I have done this to other people on my trips!

    Its interesting to see how it looks as a viewer, thanks for these shots, it was a learning experience for me.

    cheers

    Hi Gyorgy
    haha...this one puts a smile on my face right away.
    at first i noticed the sculptures on the bench, and I like the leaning lady on the right.

    then i noticed the ICE CREAM in the photographers hand! thats awesome.

    for me, the Ice Cream is the best part haha.
    great use of depth of field too

    Hi Abmdsudi
    this is one of those shots where its actually better to have the motion blur right? it shows the pace of the city life more effectively I think.

    Living here in Canada, with a total population of approx 35 Million, its hard to even IMAGINE a CITY of 14 Million! Yikes! We have alot of wide open spaces in our country :)

    your shot is also very colourful, thats a bonus as well.
    fun shot
