    Hi Wolfgang
    personally, I have never been on such a ship - perhaps one day soon :)

    what i like about this photo is the power and presence of the ship in the small frame.
    for obvious reasons it dominates the composition,
    excellent angles too.

    Hi Iain
    now thats a field of yellow and green! wow.
    nice to have the roadway for contrast and a lead-in, and obviously the colors stand out and make a strong statement.
    no hay-fever for me!

    Hi Pavle
    now thats a fine collection of birds :)
    so cute to see them side by side in their nest, maybe they're looking for food up there maybe they're just enjoying the view :)

    fun photo, really like it

    Hi Noel
    if i could envision Irealand in my mind, I think I would see scene's similar to this one.

    looks like a place to film movies too :)
    so much history here its hard to even imagine the stories.

    its a fine split of greens and blues, excellent subject and note.

    Hi Ike
    I like the lady on the far right :)

    haha...sorry, just had to say that!

    this Cathedral actually looks like an organ, or should I say looks like a collection of organ pipes.
    never seen it from this close up before.
    strange collection of items along the bottom of the frame but it all works well.
    see you around

    Hi Gunnar
    thanks for your comments on Vancouver, but trust me, we have our own major problems with the city too.
    the worst being the amount of poverty/homelessness due to poor social housing accomodations. While drugs/addiction remain a HUGE ongoing issue in Vancouver.

    Nice to hear the summer sun has popped up for you on this day, the sun is evident on the rocks and tall grass. I like the greys/blues, its an attractive combo.
    see you around

    Hi Harriet
    I'm sure Beverley would enjoy this scene too, she loves trees and such nature photos.

    looks like a calm and peaceful area, tranquil setting.
    really enjoy the trees on the right.

    Hi Gert
    I have to say, this is absolutely incredible that they carve these straight out of solid granite rock.

    at first glance i thought the elephant was real :)

    love the funny scene with the person taking a break on the bench! looks so funny for some reason.

    that is an amazing temple! very impressed.
    excellent TE post

    Hi Abmdsudi
    now this is different...i try to do the panning thing as well, but never tried it with people...always with bikes or cars.

    as you mention in the note, its a strong will and determination that keeps these people going.

    fun shot, and a unique twist on the daily life activity. I'll have to give it a try sometime.

    this was on your random gallery page and i wanted to take a closer look.

    I like how it seems the mascot is joging by and looking/waving goodbye :)

    this looks like a photogenic area of the city, i'd love to see this in person some day.
    wicked city shot.

    Hi JJ
    this is one of those wow factor type of photos for me.
    love capturing and seeing these scenes in person.

    and like i've said before, anytime a Lighthouse is in the scene its a winner :)

    the hint of light from the right warms the scene a bit, and even warms up the lighthous.
    love the white water and the overall subject.
    its a beauty

    or should i call you Juan? haha

    funny thing...I thought you had posted this photo once before too - no joke. Maybe we're both going a bit mad!

    when you TELL us the large blue square in the middle is a skylight it actually helps my brain figure out all the geometric shapes - very cool.
    love the differenet shades and blue variances. awesome shot

    Hi Andrew
    funny how perspective can makes such a strong impact onto a scene...for example, the white sail boat on the right actually looks like a tiny toy!

    I would love to see more of that castle too.

    must be lots of history here, especially with the Vikings involved! yikes

    my favorite part of the photo are the clouds, they're fantastic. lovely rustic feel with fine history.

    just reading the title in this photo is making me feel hungry :)

    I'm always interested in seeing what type of shoes other men are wearing around the world...seems like its only North American's that wear sneakers. These guys are wearing something more interesting than just Nike's.

    now i want a pastery! thanks!

    Hi Indrasish
    narrow little lanes, hundreds of century-old buildings...what more could you ask for??
    sounds great to me!

    having the bikes, the people and the close up composition is making this a winner in my books.

    there's a real down to earth gritty feel about this one.

    Hi Kathryn
    I have to admit, at first glance I would never think this was taken in Paris - but then again what do i know?

    you said it was difficult to photograph, but it looks fine to me. nice to see you were able to capture the tiles and textures on the large dome.
    Upwards POV's often are best for these large structures, fine post
