    Hi Olivier
    looks like you were in Iceland almost at the same time as our TE friend Roland!

    in this shot we can see the wind scurrying along the tops of the water making those streaks, and the top of that tiny plot of land in the water has the perfect light on it.

    another beauty from Iceland
    cheers

    Hi Roland
    love it!
    how could anyone NOT be impressed with this wonderful country of Iceland.

    excellent shot that shows its beauty, its landscape.
    the colors in this shot really do dazzle the senses, and I like the slope at the top to draw us inwards and upwards.

    well done
    cheers

    Hi Mariusz
    well, looking at your map now I know where to find Tarnow! Its not far from Krakow.

    so listening to what the teacher had to say about Bem, did it change your own opinion? were you a bit disappointed?

    Personally, I think it looks quite beautiful!
    I would be honored to have such a burial site when I die - but i have a funny feeling that won't be happening!

    I'm not sure how you could have improved on this photo, looks great to me. warm and attractive colors for sure.

    interesting note

    Hi Claude
    classic CLODO shot.

    I really lilke the look on the womans face, and she's looking quite attractive with her hair and sunglasses in that style :)

    I bet she would appreciate the photo that you took of the 3 of them together!

    cute and colorful moment that you captured.

    love the top half of this photo alot. the colors of red, yellow, green and blue all blend in together so smoothly. Its quite attractive and eye catching.

    excellent exposure and colors all around

    you know I always enjoy your photos, no different with this one.
    its hard to keep track of where you are in this world!
    haha

    love that you're showing us such different places from Russia - this one is new for me!

    If I didn't know better, I would have thought this photo was taken in Las Vegas! This is how it looks there :)

    Hi Jose
    yes, I remember this spot well!
    How was your experience here?
    We were told by so many people to arrive early to avoid the crowds...um...that was the WORST time to arrive because everybody had the same idea!

    we enjoyed the sights but really were turned off by how busy and crowded it was here.

    excellent shot, has a lot of sharpness and definition.
    love the royal blue skyline for contrast.
    nice shot

    Hi Gigi
    very interesting indeed.
    a unique twist on a Palace.
    for obvious reasons the red colors catch our attention right away from the gallery page.
    really enjoy the silhouettes of people in the lower fg, it helps to put things into perspective that way.

    awesome colors and subject choice.

    Hi Maria
    wow! thats one seriously DEEP lake! thats over 5000 feet deep. I wonder whats living down there :)

    its amazing how photo can create such different moods, here in this one it feels so lonely and alone because of the wide open spaces - there is a real minimalist feel to it.

    nice shot indeed

    Hi Noel
    like Jason has already commented to you, is it Halloween yet!? Because it surely does from this photo, although i may not enter through these gates to get my candy!

    interesting history indeed.
    those Damn Vikings! lol

    great looking shot that creates a wonderful atmsophere because of the black and whites. It really does have a spooky mood to it.

    thanks for your kind words on my latest photo, much appreciated!

    Hi Eleu
    its funny to think this plane was such a great fighter in the air because here it looks kind of fat and stubby and overweight!

    I guess it just has that look to it, rather than a sleek slim look.

    love seeing the Pilot, and the large Red Star is great for the image too.
    nicely done

    Hi Serge
    an interesting piece of Canadian history in this scene.

    I wonder whats inside that house/building on the left, it seems to be in great condition on the outside.

    the only thing that seems to be missing in this scene are people mining for gold and a watermill :)
    nice shot

    Hi Brian
    this seems to be the "IN-THING" now adays, rebuilding old docks and marinas or rebuilding old warehouses into appartments...its 'cool' and hip to live in such areas.

    and I have to admit, it does sound cool to live in these industrial type of settings - very different.

    I can see why you chose this pov, with the reflections staring us down in the middle.

    great cloud coverage and overall rustic type of feel.
    nice shot
    see you around

    Hi Asa
    I know the photo isn't the sharpest because of the very slow shutter, but we've all been here in that regard!

    I had to pick this one out of your gallery simply because of the large gold ball with the Man stading on top of it - what the heck is that!

    Its almost as if it doesn't belong in the scene, and they are lost lol

    very interesting and weird! glad you captured it.

    Hi Gert
    Time Machine here we come! Love these time machine photos - just like everyone else.

    Oh how the world has changed huh Gert.
    On a side note, its amazingly stupid how countries are at war with each other. I've said it dozens of times and i'll say it again - we are the human race, at the top of the food chain, yet we are basically the only species stupid enough to kill each other.

    I often think boundries, countries, religion...they are all dividers, separating people...the world should be 1 solid country bringing people together.

    Oh well, we're not going to solve the worlds issues today on TE :)

    here we have a photo that may be near impossible to achieve today. Not quite sure what they're doing here or what they're cooking up, but its an interesting collection.

    nice shot and story

    Hi Ney
    I think its a shame that more people have NOT giving you points on this Grand Canyon photo!
    It deserves many more than you have reveived.

    its maybe one of the best Grand Canyon photos i have ever seen - in all honesty.

    Look at the lighting you captured! look at the colors, and the snake like movements of the earth.

    its beautiful, and the composition is fantastic.
    wonderful photo

    looking at this scene, I can only imagine what it must be like to work all day in a shop like this!

    thats funny, as I was reading the note I was thinking to myself how much i'm going to enjoy seeing even more City skylines...then you say you've come to and end with it!

    Well that sucks! I guess I wanted to see more cities.

    Classic European skyline here with the steep red rooftops and tall churches dominating the sky.

    excellent day for photos with the bright light, and the greens mix the color up just enough.

    Hi Bev
    yup, you certainly caught me off guard with this one.
    I would never have guessed in a million years that this photo was taken near or at Stonehedge.

    See, we learn something new each and evey day!

    maybe its an illusion, but this Veranda seems to go on for a long long distance.
    the grey sky seems to copy the color of it too.
    unique subject to post, i like it.
