    Hi Aleksander
    oh yes, this is definately HDR isn't it :)
    HDR or no HDR, i love it.
    we can get a great sense of detail in the shadows, especially directly below the windows.
    a fine textured shot, and of course the compo makes it all work so well in the first place.
    cheers

    Hi Costantino
    its always good to have such strong contrasting colours!
    and this red hull suits that perfectly indeed.
    I like that you kept the skyline out of the frame too, much better to focus in on the subjects this way.

    Hi Malgo
    is this the same bridge/staircase we see in Gosia's famous photo? Do you know the one i'm talking about?
    I like this colour version, and I love the clouds the most.
    and yeah, its always fun to capture these wedding photos when you're NOT the pro photographer - there's no pressure to make the bride happy haha

    fun shot, I like the twist

    Hi Lars
    haha...fun photo.
    if it wasn't for the fog or clouds on the left, I probably wouldn't like it as much - but that cloud formation is like a virus, trying to attach the building :)

    really like the water view too, and seeing the large wheel on the right...which I went on...did you?

    Hi Wolfgang
    you certainly captured my attention with this one my friend.
    at first I thought it was a piece of paper on the ground, or at least something similar.

    the twisting movements work so well in gaining our attention and drawing us in to view it.
    we don't see scene like this very often.
    cool shot!

    Hi John
    haha...your abstract looking photo works so well as its right beside my abstract photo in the gallery page :)

    now THAT's a slow shutter speed my friend!
    well done all the way around.
    we can see so much of the wood grain, its textures and its colors.

    I also like that you captured it on a slight tilt and angle, it looks more intriguing this way, like you HAD to capture it in this manner.

    excellent light and shadow too.
    what's not to like!
    cheers

    Hi Delphine
    such an attractive shot..we don't get to see something like this on TE very often, so its a welcome sight indeed.

    love the visual effect the trees and logs have underneath the waters surface. Its almost like looking at a movie screen in 3D, but without the 3D glasses :)

    wonderful colors too. whats not to like!

    Hi Pavle
    now you're making me hungry for Blueberries :)
    excellent photo here my friend.
    the sunlight looks to be very harsh in the bg, but your blueberries are perfectly exposed.
    alot of details and attractive colors.
    well done

    Hi Brenda
    first of all...thanks for the link you sent me in your email :) Its much appreciated haha

    How do you keep finding these little gems in BIG NYC!
    its almost like you'll have better odds of winning the lottery.

    Keep these coming, its always a new twist of the culture and heartbeat of your area. its fantastic. I honestly don't think tourists would find these, its clearly seen by a local!

    see you around

    Hi Carlo
    awesome!
    love the power and the perspective.
    you had a great day too, lots of blue sky with large puffy clouds - you couldn't ask for anything more.
    the subject is A+ as well.
    excellent idea to capture it from this point of view.
    dramatic and attractive.

    Hi Maria
    this is exactly how I remember it.
    awesome capture.
    we can see the smoky air that is well known in this area, the charming boats, and of course the Ghats.
    having colorful people in the boat is a big bonus.
    how could I not enjoy this one.

    Hi Klaudio
    haha...we don't see photo's like this too often on TE.
    its always a good idea to capture such scenes from the other side. look at the result you got.
    I also like the effect of the people in the bg too, not just the 3 main figures.
    fun shot! the final result is very good.

    Hi Burak
    Looking at this it makes me want to re-visit Norway and Oslo.
    I like that you filled out the entire frame, there's lots to see and to examine from top to bottom.
    love seeing the fortress walls, and the ship.
    excellent exposure and sharpness.

    cool view here my friend.
    we see many many photos of the Hoover Dam, but I don't think we see this view very often.
    fun to see the shadow as well.

    Hi Christiane
    funny how one small green umbrella can makes such a huge impact in the scene.
    it stands out very well among all the other colors.
    love the big sweeping curve and the contrasting blues.

    what makes this one so attractive is the combination of lime greens, oranges, and blues...its a very colourful presentation.

    how could I complain about this one?
    super sharp and clear all the way through.
    and I like how the photo seems to gain in height, there's a natural upward flow to it.
