    Hi Angel
    talk about having peace and quiet!
    a very serene, tranquil setting.
    I can feel my blood pressure reducing just looking at this photo and i'm not even there :)

    good positioning with the tree in the top right corner too, just to complete the empty space smartly.

    lovely light and colors.
    cheers

    Hi Denis
    I think i've made it very clear over the years how much i enjoy clouds!!!
    Clouds can make or break a photo - here they certainly make it work.

    the clouds is certainly the most dominating subject, towering over the land below like a mother alien ship ready to conquer the earth!

    nice shot

    Hi Jose
    nice to meet you, I don't think i've been to your gallery before - so its always fun to see what you have taken over the years :)

    and a fine gallery it is.

    I wanted to critique one of your previous posts but since you have this new one, and you havn't been back in years lets celebrate with your newest post.

    who says you need a bright clear skyline, even these overcast skies are wonderful - and sometimes even better!

    the mood has been set and you captured that well.
    I like the rugged and rustic feel of the subjects,
    the exposure is perfectly set in that darker range, no need to illuminate this one.

    Hope to see you around
    Cheers
    Craig

    Hi Gert
    yes, i remember this place well :)

    you know what these people are called? "familiar strangers"

    thats the actual term for people who are familiar with eachother but never really talk to each other....for example people who we see everyday at the same bus stop...etc...

    notice how most of them are giving themselves space.
    interesting social experiment on human behavior.

    Hi JJ
    I always say its so important to look UP when walking around the city to shoot architecture - most people for some unknown reason just don't do that.

    really think the clouds add alot of visual interest and impact, as do the yellow and blue color combinations.
    looks great how the Cathedral fills up the frame, very attractive.
    cheers

    Hi Tiffany
    well well well, look what we have here :)
    this place is very close to home!

    I've photographed this hundreds of times and I never ever get bored of it.

    Its nice to see that you added in the people along the bottom, showing that its also a walkable structure.

    love the sails and the clouds.
    fun shot!

    Hey Jason
    had to come back to this photo before i forgot.
    I really liked the composition the most, and to make it better everyone is obviously wearing the same colors same suit. Its kind of funny seeing that same repetitive form over and over in the frame - works well.

    Funny to also see how their eyes are moving off into different directions before the camera snaps off.

    I'm off to work, gotta get going before i get too late.
    Hope all is well, take it easy!

    cheers
