    Hi Danos
    when we were in Greece we just didn't have enough time to visit here....now i regret it :(
    but perhaps some other day in the future.

    very rustic, very attractive - this is something we dont' get to see often at all.

    really like you close up view, we get to see so much detail in the stone and the buildings.
    excellent post
    cheers

    Hi Angel
    now thats an interesting building!
    this is a Town Hall?
    wow, so unique, so differnt.

    it looks more like an old Castle or something like that.

    love the large arches and the oversized doors/windows.
    excellent light and exposure, it really pops.

    Hi Sasha
    as I often say to you, its great for us to see daily living photos from Inside Serbia. Here in Canada, we don't really know much about this country.

    for me, the clock is a very nice addition, and I enjoy the peach colors of the building.
    excellent light and exposure

    Hi Les
    I could tell immediately this was taken in the ultra wide angle lens, it has that 'look' to it.

    personally, i love abandoned buildings so it appeals to me already.

    and its cool how the trees seem to move toward it, protecting the building.
    cool shot

    Hi Ryszard
    wow! this one really stands out well.
    love the wide open spaces and just how it feels so open.

    perhaps its the large expanse of the sky that makes it feel that way.

    splended colors and lighting too.

    Hi Nicolas
    this one is all about the lighting and the bg scenery.
    its hard to beat having such a fantastic mountain scape in the bg of any photo, so obviously its going to be attractive.

    then you add in the clouds, the light, and you have yourself a fine shot
    enjoy your day

    Hi Maciej
    what I like about this shot is how the Town Hall just takes Center Stage so easily.

    there's nothing around it that even tries to compete with it.

    excellent shot with sharpness, details, and exposure.
    hard to execute a shot like this without clouds to buffer the light but it turned out great

    Hi Juliette
    gotta love this one!
    there's nothing better than a whole lot of frost and ice on trees :)

    these trees look like white colored brocolli :)

    the pale light colored blue sky is a nice contrast too.
    amazing how mother nature produces scenes like this one
    excellent shot

    Hi Stephen
    so is this the Island of Tasmania? Off the coastline of Australia??

    smart choice of angle, showing off the long lines and the clouds are the winning subject in my opinion.
    gotta love the clouds here!

    I dont' think i've ever seen this building in Copenhagen before!

    for obvious reasons it really catches our visual attention from your gallery page.

    they dont' make too many building slike this!

    Hi Achim
    always a pleasure to see this beast of architecture!
    I never ever get tired of it.

    stunning piece of man-made-structure isn't it.
    good for you to capture it at such a slow shutter speed, it came out quite well.

    very good color contrast too.
    enjoy your day

    great to see Santorini from this vantage point.
    its a view that we don't get to see very often, therefore it certainly holds my attention.

    Hi Rosemary
    yes, as i'm viewing this man i'm trying to figure out what exactly his expression IS!
    hard to pinpoint it.

    in a weird way, i'm glad he didn't smile or frown, he looks statue-like here and it works well.
    works well because its so different and visually
    intriguing.

    excellent moment captured, a fine memory i'm sure

    Hi Gert
    first of all, its funny to hear you say you're 'supposed to always shot pictures with a lot of people'....i guess we expect certain things from certain people :)

    so does this 'tax' still happen today? the photo was taken only a few years ago.

    a very interesting story to go along with your photo.
    again, goes to show I really don't know much about this area of the world.

    looks like one HUGE river.
    thanks for this post and the info
