    Hi Krzysztof
    yes, i'm glad you posted a shot like this one.
    its a classic composition for Valletta.
    always hard to fit into the frame though, so i understand the problems you may face :) Interesting how the left side has mostly green balconies, the right mostly beige.
    love this cultural image
    cheers

    Hi Pavle
    did you turn the lights on with the crosses? haha
    it looks like they're glowing.
    I would also like to see the church in a wide angle shot, just curious.

    you captured a very attractive light on the church itself, its quite striking. thanks for this one
    cheers

    Hi Luis
    yeah, this is basically what i think of in my mind when I think about these Croatian cities by the water.

    You mentioned in your note the Medieval times, I wonder what this place looked like way back then. I bet it wasn't as clean and pristine :)

    a fine overview, we see the church tower, the red rooftops, the white boats and a bridge. gotta like it in this light.
    cheers

    Hi Abmdsudi
    I agree with you, this does BEG to be photographed doesn't it.
    glad you did. and often these little back alley ways can produce surprising results. the man's bright blue shirt, the items on his table, the light striking the large door panels in the bg...so many great subjects here.
    cheers

    Hi Serge
    always great to see this beast of architecture, no matter what the lighting or weather conditions. On your day here, it was a fantastic looking day. that sky with clouds is the best.
    and the Cathedral is very sharp and clear, well executed shot.

    Hi Benny
    for some reason, when we see these school kid photos we mostly see groups of girls, so its a bit refreshing to see the young men here for a change.

    these are shots we can all relate to i think, when I look at this, it makes me think back to my own school days. I think i would have preferred to have uniforms - it would have taken so much pressure off to always look good and fresh with the latest clothes. It'd be interesting to hear their point of views.

    The one boy is looking directly down your lens, he's fixated on you. fine post, its close up and personal. nice shot
    cheers

    Hi John
    this scene is mostly about the man with the hat in my opinion, he makes the scene :)
    I'd like to hear his personal story, I get the feeling its an interesting one. Sweet workshop as well.
    Will you be meeting up with Malgo in Belgium?

    Hi Sergiy
    I'm certainly no expert on Norway, but I know these are the classic/typical style of homes we often see in this beautiful country. and often they're up on the hillsides like this too.
    lovely light and exposure, the green grass makes for the perfect colour contrasts too. looks like a peaceful town.

    Hi Jean Claude
    its always a welcoming site to see these locomotives, we dont' get to see enough of them here on TE, only rarely.

    these are a blast from the past, love the subject, the lighting, the colours, and the overall rustic feel of the train. cheers

    Hi Ourania
    I like this style of lighting, there's a compliment of shadow and light. and in this scene there are fine balances of rough subjects and smooth, a bit of everything. peaceful mood and atmosphere too, whats not to like right? nice shot

    Hi Dale
    another cool shot of these horses, this time from a different angle and pov, and in less white illumination. Looks great to me still. Its neat to see the horses when you really really look closely at each section that is put together in pieces, and here we can see that.

    yup, this is a MUST when visiting NYC right! it wouldn't be the same without it. I can sit here and view this all day long. and even though the lighting is not the best, its still an attractive view all around. So you've been to NYC three times now? awesome

    Hi Ricardo
    wow, stunning execution of this scene my friend.
    one of your best.
    love seeing the Milky Way in the bg, and the overall lighting is superb. I just want to sit back at this one and enjoy it.
    what were the camera settings on this one? how long was the exposure? It must have been very dark in this area to get those stars like that. well done

    now this is quite interesting, what the heck is this?
    reading your note, it would be great to take a look at this in the night time too. this is something very different indeed.
    you gotta go back at night! go for it :)

    Hi Takero
    it seems like there's a festival every day in Japan somewhere, haha. and we know you're going to be there to capture it too.
    it would be hard to fit another person in the frame :)
    I don't quite understand the meaning of these festivals, but its fun to view them from your point of view.
