    Hi Aleksander
    if we take the time to fully investigate the subjects in the window, its actually quite fun.

    and of course the colors we see are very common in Poland too, very bright and red/orange on the buildings.

    fun shot, a dazzling visual display

    Hi Costantino
    love the subject!
    I have never really photographed a large Tall ship like this, have you ever been on one?
    that would be a great experience too.

    good to have the tiny sailboats on the right for scale. lucky buggers!

    have a great weekend
    cheers

    Hi Jean Claude
    thats pretty funny actually....to be celebrating photo #2501 :) glad to see you recognized you missed 2500 though!

    I always enjoy viewing your posts, so lets hope you show us another 2501

    clearly, its the wrap around effect, and the visual perception up on top where there's a dip in the dome, those are the key features.

    and we don't see this color very often either, nice shot
    cheers

    Hi Chris
    I really like these styles of photos, where we have 2 pieces of architecture that are facing off against each other. Best of all, is that they're angled toward each other as well, as if they're talking or communicating.

    the light is clearly brigher on the left side of the frame, but it also has a better contrast with the blue sky too.

    elegant architecture, looks great in this color combination.

    cheers

    Hi Carlo
    its always nice to see these old crusted buildings!
    hard to beat it right?
    but overall, looks like its been maintained quite well.
    its always good to show a little of the surrounding architecture too, like the homes on the bottom left, just for contrast and comparison.

    excellent subject to investigate
    cheers

    Hi Jean
    yeah, sometimes you want to be near the crowds, sometimes you want to get away from the crowds.
    Totally understandable.

    for me, the trees are the main focal points, they add alot with their ragged arms reaching up into the sky.
    very attractive lighting and exposure settings overall as well, I wouldn't want to change anything to the set up.

    Hi Ray
    very cool, this does look somewhat like a Fort doesn't it.

    seems like Utah has alot of these natural wonders, I must take a trip down there sometime soon.

    the low position and upwards POV works well to convey its large stance. nice shot

    Hi Pranil
    who says you need a sunny day to take good photographs!
    this one is fantastic.
    really like the 3D type of visual effect, and the strong contrasting colors mixed in with the fog.
    well done

    Hi Bonjour dear Daniel

    Sorry for my late and usual dull recation.
    Wow so stunning landscape image at all. 1 second and F22 makes this dramatic presentation, but we never forget this nice angle and framework. Color touch is also so marvelous. This is my favorite one.

    Hi dear Noel

    Sorry fron my late reaction as I was so busy--.
    Very impressive image via good usage of strong back sun light. The contarst of light and shade are very very appealing. The reflection of light on the river is also great accent too.

    Hi Ola dear Maria

    So well considered composition ine the best tight framework. Many horizontal lines tightens this image so effcetively. I like this color touch and also light touch. 20 degree temperature is the best condition, right?

    Hi Daniel
    if you can't find a tall narrow street, you'll find a tall narrow building :)

    really enjoy this composition with the stark contrasting forms and geometry from the left side to the right side.

    all one same color though, thats the only similarity between the two. Dynamic shot

    Hi Costantino
    I think you've posted this bridge before, but i don't mind at all!

    you could post them several times and i'm alright with that.

    reading your note, i think the only people who don't like the bridge are the Ferry boat owners who loose money! haha

    love the large clouds too, they add alot to the scene.

    Hi Ryszard
    its easy to see why this is probably the most photographed bridge in Wroclaw.

    I spent some time here photographing it as well.

    you captured it in a very attractive dimmed light, and there's even a hint of rosey reds in the sky on the left.

    Hi JJ
    I really do enjoy these cut and crop architecture shots, take little pieces of the buildings to form a collage.

    and its nice to have the large light fixtures in the scene too, to break up the pattern of the timber homes.
    excellent shot
    cheers
