    This time I had chosen to take a stroll in your gallery, Burak, found this picture with "none" written as a note to this, and it's not too late to added some explanation by the "EDIT" tab.
    A most vibrant scene on the waterfront, some action goe's on as "rush-hour" looks, taken from a superior POV.
    My cong.'s.

    Hola Pedro,
    I must say a big OH,WOW... superbly how you caught this moment, when the tourists-carriage just turned the corner.
    One side of the special-yellow house is under bright light while around the corner it is shaded, than contrast by other colors - masterfully balanced this to a wonderful picture.
    Buen fin de semana,

    Hi Bulent
    Lovely in the way the subject matter has been framed. That bit of blue corner top left serves to emphasise the leading diagonal and it does give some depth to the shot. Although there isnt a single focal point within the gold coloured rocks, the variation in shape due to the viewing angle does provide sufficient interest for the roving eye. Lovely shot, Congrats and tfs
    Best wishes

    The beams and lintel in an skewed angle along with the steeple, has created an attractive sight of the church from a close range, Murat.
    The complementary WS show a nice area view around.
    Fine picture, a nice idea for the POV.

    Buongiorno Carlo,
    A bell tower that is very prominent on the rural country sight, well showing the bell itself. The surrounding green had contrast from the colorful yellow chair and cloths hanging to dry.
    Fine exposure, collected nice scene.
    Buona sabato,

    A nice summer-heat shot, Craig, though Chicago known as the windy-city and winter mostly feezing there - temp.'s are climbing during summers, and i remember saw on the news one year ago that roads had the asphalt melted under 35C there.
    Fine shot, colorful and with the water jet you made this so refreshing sight.
    Have a nice weekend,
    Ike

    *** 1/2000 exp. does not guarantee an absolute sharpness, you still have to follow the movement(panning) and constantly checking the exposure - one passing cloud, and the image would be darkening. 1 out of 10 come with great result, rough statistic's. Thanks.

    Hi Craig,

    Like us living in Britain (and especially Scotland), really hot and dry weather must be quite a novelty for you! So it's nice to see people enjoying a nice "cool off" under this shower, even if it is in Chicago and not Vancouver! Personally, and at my age, I think I'd rather just sit with an ice cream or a cold beer but these people certainly seem to be having some fun.

    This is a brilliant photograph with the happy bunch of adults and children cavorting around in that cold fountain and they are well portrayed against the simple brickwork-like background.

    Lovely light and colours, perfect exposure and, as always, exquisite details and sharpness.

    Brilliant!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    P.S. Of course, I share your concerns about being thought of as a "creep". It really is so difficult nowadays taking any form of candid or street photographs but I now understand (just heard today and have just signed a petition against it) that the European Parliament is trying to put forward some horrendous legislation to stop people taking any pictures whatsoever in public places without formal consent - not only from people but also from the architects who, apparently, have copyrights to the buildings they've designed too! Geez, I think the World's gone stark, raving mad.

    Hi Burak!
    A very famous scene indeed, impossible not to recognize it on the statue! I see the tourists really enjoy it. Well framed, they give life and a notion about the size.
