    Ciao Silvio,
    beautiful presentation of this amphitheater. I have been ti a similar structure on Cyprus recently but somehow I did not manage to take a satisfactory picture. Here you have presented the theater in a context of other nice architecture and most of all with the amazing sky which transform the scene very much.
    Very impressive effect!
    I like it very much,

    Bonjour Serge,
    very interesting composition, I normally don't like dark night photos but here I like the silhouettes of people in front of the fountain and the opera as well of course.
    Great idea, very well done!!

    Hi Danos,
    this is indeed quite a difficult time for Greece and a lovely presentation, fresh reportage from Athens.
    I had a pleasure to visit Syntagma square many years ago but without a proper camera, in the pre-digital times. This here is a fantastic POV which is also very suitable for the situation as you have managed to include so many people demonstrating. The main building is so nicely lit -almost glowing gold.
    Interesting to hear that you have a heavy rain. I guess you have some bad weather this summer too.

    Great work!
    I cross my fingers for a happy end for Greek economy.

    Czesc Malgorzata,
    niesamowity widok! Bardzo podoba mi sie kombinacja kolorow: czerwona brama z zielona woda. Rowniez ciekawe ksztalty: ta sama brama i palmowe sylwetki na dole kadru. Oczywiscie dymiaca woda wyglada mistycznie. A glowny dymek nawet uklada sie diagonalnie w kadrze.
    Piekne miejsce! Zdaje sie ze musze wpisac Japonie na liste miejsc do zobaczenia -szczegolnie ze jako z niewielu ostatnio krajow jest dosyc bezpieczna i moglaby sie nadac do podrozowania z dzieckiem (aczkolwiek Nadia moglaby sie tam troche nudzic...).
    Pozdrawiem serdecznie,

    Hi Ike,
    it is the matter of taste: for my taste it is a bit too dark. I know it is quite natural and the night time was emphasized here very well here with a unique mood but I would brighten it a bit. The sky was marvelous but is already almost gone.
    Great spot though I remember you other pictures from ths POV.
    Very well done,

    Hi Pranil,
    this is the part of the sunset which I like the most. When the sun is still present there is a big chance for burning out the sky, but after it hides: the sky stay colorful for a while and the whole mood is stimm quite impressive. That is what happened here, the sun is either just gone or maybe a bit hidden behind the clouds but has no more power to burn.
    The exposition is perfectly balanced and the sky so colorful while the foreground in natural colors.
    Wondeful final effect.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Gert,
    I like the little colorful houses which appear in the very centre of the composition. To the left here seems to be a fragment of a church as well. I like the architecture and pleasant vivid colors. House in the right and the tree frame the view lovely and the children add so much more life and color here!
    Beautiful work!

    Hi John,
    I am a bit of a freak, similarly to MJR I would really like to paint all counties of UK on my TE map and so when driving from Northumberland along the coast I was passing by the East Lothian and was so tempted to stop there and take a picture to have this county marked.
    But there was nothing along the road and I had a long tiring day so I didn't want to add to it by taking a side trip.

    And here you are: East Lothian :)
    I thought the Lothians will all have only a few pictures as they are small but it seems the West is less populated on TE (40 photos or so) then comes Midlothian which we have visited together once :) and the East Lothian has more than 400 pictures!
    I guess it means it is quite intersting.
    You show quite a rough nature here. Rocks and a stormy sea.
    Very impressive and very well done!

    Hi Paul,
    very interesting picture which together with the workshop photos makes a great TE contribution. We can learn indeed so mcuh about the life from it.
    Simplicity is what strikes here first. Obviously I have seen some interiors like this in movies but I was never sure if they were real or just artificial.
    The colorful materials make a great foreground and enhance the interest.
    Great composition with so many lines.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Burak,
    so you have visited Warsaw in late November! That is why people are in thick jackets and the weather quite bad. I see also some Christmas decorations.
    In spite of the low light, a lot of shade and bad weather you captured an interesting mood here and the final effect is quite nice -especially with the Royal Castle well framed between the buildings.
    Very well done,

    Hi Angshu,
    this is exactly what I dream about: a trip along the coast from Lake Bled down to Dubrovnik and even bit further to Montenegro and so. Sadly I would need more time and money than I have available -may be next year I can manage that. Also with my 3 year old daughter it could be too challenging as there are so many place I would like to see along the way.
    This spot is first of the miraculous places. Great POV to present it from above and to emphasize its amazing location.
    The weather was indeed quite bad but it didn't stop you from taking a great picture.
    Very interesting mood almost as if it was raining.
    Beautiful work,
    M

    BTW
    I have answered your question about Cyprus under my Cyprus photo, but then I realized that India also has quite bad reputation in media recently. There are so many rapes happening and also on tourists, and police blames them that they are guilty themselves as they went off the beaten track. So to be honest India is also off my list for a while. It doesn't change much though beacuse I wouldn't be able to afford that trip anyway -so this is just an imaginary wish list :)

    amazing light conditions made this picture to a real masterpiece. I like very much the warm color tones here. The two guys indeed add some life and interest. And there are two camels parked behind. The houses indeed quite simple.

    Hi Craig,
    spectacular view indeed and the light could not be better! You have perfectly used the opportunity here. I love this contrast between the well lit village and the rest of the picture taken by the dark side. It looks really as if God was illuminating the village as if trying to point something out?
    Excellent work!!

    Well I do mention the lack of sun but you may remember that one of my last trips before I had a daughter was to Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego...

    I contacted fellow UK members and everyone is very excited to meet you -we just wait for a sign from you about the dates and planned locations, let us know asap.

    at first I thought it is so red that something must be off but after a closer examination I realized it is real!
    Very interesting chapel with lovely architecture and extraordinary color. Lovely presented set against the blue sky and framed with vegetation around it.

    Takie wlasnie zdjecie bym sobie jednak wymarzyl...
    Rozowo fioletowe niebo a w oknach wiezowca jeszcze slady zachodu slonca. Moze tyko troche szkoda ze przeslo mostu nachodzi na wiezowiec i sie z nim troche zlewa ale tak czy owaj jest to zdjecie pelne wyjatkowej romantycznj atmosfery. Fajnie byloby sie przejechac statkiem o tej wlasnie porze...

    very attractive art of nature. Incredible that is has been created spontaneously. Very well exposed.
    You present here so many various aspects of this country.
    Was the heat on the beach so high that you had to hide in caves after that?
