    Hi Lars
    Yes, more photos of Philadelphia please! Keep these coming.

    Nice to see the City Hall tower placed smartly in the bg centre, its a very attractive overall city composition.
    and this fountain looks HUGE!

    I wonder if its actually suppose to be used as a 'pool', probably not, but people need to cool off I guess.
    smart looking shot, nice one
    cheers

    Hi Chris
    I took a look at this photo on the Trek Earth Beta site, and its a wow for me. Its super crisp, clear, and with such attractive lighting. Gotta love that Beta site, its so much better than this one.

    And how did you get those clouds so perfectly placed above the city! haha...they are awesome too. love the shadow and light contrasts on the buildings. nice shot
    cheers

    Hi Klaudio
    who can resist tulip photos right? These always offer up amazing views and compositions.

    Its only a personal choice, but you could have cropped the photo to eliminate the top half and the top girl, that way we can totally focus on the bottom half. Its all subjective.

    there's something very charming and photogenic about the girl walking away, down the rows with the colourful clothing and tulips, and the dimmed light is perfect. looks great.
    cheers

    Hi Abmdsudi
    now thats sweet!
    I know the photo isn't 100% sharp, but who cares on this one.
    as this is a grab shot, its understandable. But then again, I bet its sharper on the TE Beta website version.

    its a very heart warming family moment. I promise you the parents would LOVE to get a copy of this photo! Too bad you can't get it to them somehow.

    and you couldn't have asked for better colours too! One of your best posts
    Cheers

    Hi Will
    yeah, the Beta version is quite a shocking difference isn't it, much clearer, brighter, sharper, happens on most of my Beta shots too.

    and that's one pretty cool boat, interesting to hear that they waterproof it every s 6 months or so, I guess thats important huh!

    the water out there looks exactly like it does out here in Vancouver in English Bay. excellent TE post, i've learned something new today

    Hi Malgo
    quite the history here, well documented in your note.
    reminds me alot of many other Polish cities or Old Towns.
    Full of colour, lots of tall skinny buildings with eateries outside beside the sidewalks. smart compo allowing the long lines to build depth. thanks for this one

    Hi Silvio
    what's not to like here? the lighting is quite soft and makes for an elegant glow, its quite beautiful.

    and the colour combinations of pink and blue work well too.
    I also like how the walls are chipping and peeling with paint, that adds some nice character. have a great weekend

    Hi Alexandre
    well, you pointed it out exactly in your note, the bright colours of the woman's clothing is what stands out the most.
    It catches our attention right away from the gallery page.
    and the bright lighting works well too.
    Now i'm hungry for some fruit haha

    Hi Piotr
    your landscape shots are great to view, this one is no different.

    it almost looks like the landscapes you'll see in the south western states of America.

    the colours are beautiful, but so are the angular lines and the way they shoot across the frame. nice shot

    Hi Angel
    so how does this work? is the house inside the cliff wall? It kind of looks like it on the right side.

    and its kinda funny how they have some grass area out front too. very charming and photogenic though, its a great TE post as its quite interesting and unusual. thanks for this one

    Hi Nicolas
    I don't think we've seen this type of view before of this area, or at least its not coming to mind right away.
    Here we can see how steep perhaps difficult the landscape is to build upon it.

    rugged looking place for sure, I like the upwards POV that you presented it in, thanks for this one

    Hi Serge
    seeing this makes me want to get out and maybe capture some photos of the same subject too, we have a race horse track near by.

    I like that you added in the large scoreboard in the bg, and how strange is it to see the name CROSBY on it! haha Is this Hockey or Horse jumping! :)
    fun shot, lots of bright colours

    Hi Rob
    this is my all time favourite building in NYC! I can't wait to see it again some time soon i hope.

    love the close up view, seeing the way the building 'moves' in its stillness. and of course the silver tones are outstanding. Beautiful shot! love it

    Hi Stephen
    now what the heck is this???
    wow, thats quite the interpretation of the events taken place in the 1950's. But thats what artists do right?
    gotta give them credit i guess. Too bad we can't get more of a angled view to see the lady in a better position, but thats ok. This is very strange, but also very cool at the same time, worth of posting.

    Hi Bev
    much appreciated to see the WS photo in colour, I like both shots, but i think i like the coloured one more - but thats just a subjective thing. Each have their pro's and con's.
    in this one, the preacher DOES stand out well as you mentioned in your note. So its just a matter of personal taste.

    and just the mentioning of Easter Island makes me want to go back there again...its magical! I think its cool that new statues pop up here every year, makes it worthwhile to go back time and time again.

    and as i've learned from TE, it was a good idea to include those people, its shows just how large the statue is.
    fun shot
    cheers

    Hi Noel
    wanted you to know I'll be posting photos from Ireland very soon, probably this coming week.

    you do an awesome job of shooting these sculptures, I had a difficult time getting good shots of them...but then again it was raining most of our time in Dublin so we were kinda bummed out.

    this upwards pov works so well, but so do the grey brooding clouds behind it. those clouds and the dark ambiance make it so much better. awesome post

    I love love love tower views.
    interesting to see how the rooftops and buildings are pretty much the same colors. the vertical perspective is excellent, and the green trees provide the perfect contrast.

    I hope they had good business.
    its fun to see the different point of view, the view of the vendors. Now i'm hungry :)
