    Hi Chris
    Oh i'd go back to Prague in a heartbeat!
    I was up here as well, great views.

    However, I don't recall seeing these double bridges or walkways that you captured here, well spotted my friend.

    the pov is what caught my attention right away, i like the fact its taken from a high vantage point, and of course the elegant building style are attractive too. nice shot
    cheers

    Hi Sergio
    this is a different scene you captured from Colombian, well done. I like it when a photographer can make something out of almost nothing. you made an ordinary scene into one which is colourful and almost abstract, well done.
    Good to see the WS photo though too, just to put it into perspective. cheers

    Hi Sam
    we can even see more Monks in the very back portions of the frame too. I'm not sure i'd enjoy walking around on the streets without any footwear :)

    its a lovely cultural scene that you captured, and you woke up early to get it too - well done. cheers

    Hi Rob
    yes, this is a very interesting piece of artwork for sure.
    and its funny how there's so much GOLD colour in it, and this lady has a similar GOLD purse - amazing how often that happens. and in the piece of art, it looks like alot of 1960's style wall paper haha.

    fun interaction between real life and art.
    cheers

    Hi krzysztof
    is this place abandoned? it looks like it is, or it looks like it Could be - not sure.

    so this was a Casino? doesn't look like any casino we have here in Vancouver haha. excellent subject matter, something quite different. striking colors. cheers

    Hi Angel
    normally I wouldn't like this sort of composition with so much empty space in the sky, but I do have to admit that it still looks attractive. its beneficial to have the large piece sand jetting out as it gives depth. lovely color tones and exposure. cheers

    Hi Luciano
    yes, you're right on the mark with this one.
    true natural beauty. love how the leaf seems to be coming at us in an almost 3D like way, and how the tip is folded under.
    striking contrast of greens/oranges. this one is well deserving of 100pts. cheers

    Hi Adrian
    now thats a very unique rooftop pattern on the rounded portions, it looks like the end of a Pine cone haha.

    the side angle you took the photo on really does hightlight the arches and large front window, and the lighting is A+.
    lovely shot. cheers

    Hi Paul
    another collection of interesting photos from ColOmbia! haha...i spelled it correctly :)

    I really like the close up shots with the horses too.
    Wax palm trees huh? I don't think we have those in Canada haha.

    although we do have Palm trees in Vancouver. thanks for this series. cheers

    Hi Gert
    I'm surprised you didn't post the workshop photo, I kinda like that one a bit more bc we can see more reflections. But overall they're both very similar, and we can still see reflections here as well. Plus you wanted to focus in on the workers so i get that.

    This type of work is not my cup of tea! I appreciate what these men can do, its not easy. and why do i get the feeling Baku is going to be the next hotspot over the next 10 years or so for travellers. Sort of like Iceland, and how its become a hotspot lately. fun shot.

    PS
    I'll be heading back to NYC in a couple of weeks, meeting up with Brenda again :)

    cheers

    Hi Daniel
    I have to say, you've been posting some very strange and cool looking scenes from the Netherlands. Quite different from the norm, and thats awesome.

    The flowered patterned outside wall is so eye catching, it stands out in your gallery immediately. funky shot! cheers

    Hi Stephen
    now this is a very cool looking piece of architecture, quite unique looking for sure.

    I wonder if people are living above the childrens store, it kind of looks like its occupied, and I wonder if the 1 window above it is apart of another apartment. so many questions.
    excellent subject to post, I really enjoy this one.

    Hi John
    we finally see a photo from you with poor lighting haha, usually we see photos from you with such bright warm sunlight shining through :)

    there's a overwhelming grey tone and atmosphere, as it almost feels as if its going to rain. its like the calm before the storm :)

    and there's nothing wrong with that at all, its just different from your norm. lovely historic gate with bright red splashes of color, and I like the side walls on the left which are anchoring the scene. Nice one. cheers

    Hi Ike
    lots going on here to draw our attention, and to keep our attention. and of course you captured it on another damp and wet Scottish day :)

    the classic architecture stands out the most though, and it makes for an excellent focal point for your scene. cheers

    Hi Abmdsudi
    this is an easy WOW photo from me! I bet the owners and local people here have no idea just how photogenic these scenes are.

    to us as photographers its like being in heaven :)
    even the colours compliment each other. love the rustic nature of all the subjects, its just about as perfect of a scene as you would want to run into walking the streets of an Indian inner city. brilliant.
    cheers

    Hi Serge
    this one is all about the sky, makes all the difference.
    also makes for a strong contrasting element with the softer more elegant subject material. kind of like a combination of good versus evil haha. fun to take and to view. cheers

    Hi Gert
    the old town of Baku sounds very interesting for obvious reasons, and it makes a strong contrast to present both in the same scene like this.

    Too bad about the sky, perhaps it was mid day when you took this photo but there's not much you can do about that.

    its still good to see the various shapes, forms and styles of the city. each photo you show us of the city is basically new and very interesting for me. cheers

    not many people live in this town, 1500 is very small.
    I wonder how many of these people we see here are tourists.
    its a lively scene, warm and friendly type of atmosphere. sharp and clear all the way through. cheers
