    Hello dear Ourania,
    Nice capture with many interesting details. Feeding the pigeons is also very common here in Turkey.

    Hi Murat
    A very clever slim vertical format graces this beautiful image to match the overwhelming slim minaret. Love the viewpoint and juxtaposition for this engaging shot with the woman leads to focal of interest and loads of interesting detail in this lively effective picture. Well done shot, Congrats

    P/S Your latest comments is appreciated: the luxury of time was not on my side then, bearing in mind the difficult circumstances I was in - thus a split sec shot focusing on the eyes- facial expression is more than enough for me. as you have experienced too that at times we simply cant have everything that we have planned for but making the best out of that bit of brief moment is so much more rewarded & fruitful imho,

    Hi Jean
    It's a creative way to strike attraction using the effective 'eye' filtering thru the distant catchy highlights, which lends the shot perspective and depth. Just loved all the contrasting colours and the sumptuous detail. Lovely catch, Congrats

    Hi Nicolas
    Certainly looks deserted in winter & minimalist evoking that atmospheric feeling which is nicely composed with good tonal range and textures. What a tranquil bitter cold deep snowy setting, but stands out well even in the thumbnail. It's technically well done, Congrats

    Hi Burak
    A place to mingle and shop, love the colors although this appears less hectic but it has enough interest to draw the eyes. Excellent slice of life under available light condition and nice feel of in depth and perspective. I feel the gentle friendly smile lends spur-of-the-moment liveliness to the capture. Well done shot, Congrats

    Hi Eleu
    It's a round the corner; This a befitting subject matter, very clever, very creative! You shouldn't let joss play with sticks......lol.

    It's amazing how beautiful total eyesores can be photographically, in the right light with this really quite magical scrummy curves. How wonderfully inventive and a most artistic presentation seeing in the "ordinary" and turn it into the extraordinary and unique just as each individual portrait or landscape is uniquely different to the next. It's a exquisitely exposed and very fascinating subject to photograph. Delicious! Congrats :)

    Hi Aleks
    Great image from a wonderful tranquil spot to have visited. This is a very nicely-composed image, beautiful color tones and good contrast along with excellent use of the waterway to lead the eye around the frame in a more appealing back light and lots of depth. Everything appears to be clearly defined yet there is a gentleness feel. Well done shot. Congrats

    Hi Piotr
    Spot on composition and low shooting point showing a very interesting world of patterns, straight lines and level on the wide pavement. Those bold black bottomed lines really directs the eye into the whole image - as a strong unifying factor but there's is a tremendous amount of 'movement' & abstract effect going on - groups of lines going in different directions - the longer I look at it the busier it gets. It's a brilliant idea and very well conceived as there are excellent photos to be found everywhere, for those who have the eye to see. You have that eye. Excellent work

    Hi Ryszard
    You've bagged this at just the right time. I like the angle you chose makes the most of the buildings depicting the super architectural detail with
    warm tone opposed to the a deep blue sky and just the right amount of cloud, to set it off. Super shot, Congrats

    Hi Rosemary
    It really does look as if it's in need of some attention. Good conversion in mono tones and love the high contrast and the texture but your image looks quite overexposed imho, which doesn't come as a surprise given the very localised brightness of the lights, but then it looked clinical instead of atmospheric. There's probably not much you could do about it at the time, a flash wouldn't have helped and I'm not sure what could be done in software either but I love your approach, sorry if that all sounds a bit negative. Well done, Congrats
    Best wishes

    Hi Pavle
    You certainly get a sense of the venue and occasion and this is excellent collection of shots well put together. The tones and overall feel is superb and each picture tells a story especially like the deep brown colours, contrast and dark shadows to complement each other. For me it sums up beautifully, you've captured the spectrum of feelings and objects here. It's got real atmosphere...
    Wonderful shot, Congrats

    Hi Ourania
    A restful picture showing a safe harbour on calm day purely a very relaxing image and lovely even in winter those deep blues & sky are so appealing to the eyes. But the powerful & impressive looking boat is what makes this for me as a strong unifying factor directing the eye into the whole image. A wonderful seascape superbly exposed, just longing for summer to return...
    Great capture., Congrats

    Hi Craig
    Rat race & slice of urban street life and lots going on there, a bright cheerful and crisp look at an every day scene with a simple point of focus on the striking bold sparkling red of the retro olde worlde tram. Excellent capture flawlessly exposed. Congrats

    P/S: your notes on my last upload is much appreciated; the greatest advantage is that when you are a LONER at any shooting locations without string attached, thus time is always on your side with proper plan to pick and choose the right subjects of interest. Early morning and late aft prime golden hours are of utmost important to me that i try not to miss.
