    Hi Francesco,
    A beautiful landscape, so sharp and clear that I can see very detail of the rocky surface of the mountains, while the foreground lake has such a beautiful reflection and amazing colors. A perfect view on this amazing natural place to result in a great photo. Really nicely done.
    Cheers

    Hello Silvio,
    A lovely monument and a beautiful light shining from the vault. The man sitting on the steps makes the view come alive. The photo is very well exposed and has a perfect sharpness.

    Hi Kryzsztof
    The bright light on the building with the dark stormy sky looks great and a major bonus to also have this fine reflection included in the shot too. A very good composition to show this urban area with a good selection of buildings and und excellent light.
    Cheers

    Hello Satya,
    These photos from the beach are really fascinating. I ask myself if this was an extraordinarily lucky day, or if these men bring home the same kind of catch every time they return from the sea. I would have loved to stroll along this beach to look for good photos, but maybe my (greying) blonde appearance would have made it difficult. I could never blend into the crowd here.
    Kind regards,

    Hi Ourania,
    I love your note, I can see why this would be fun, looking for the right angle to shoot an entire building, and the example you shared today is a perfect example of the art of shooting such places. I agree, it looks to me like a wall with windows, great angle to create this intriguing view. At first, tit reminded me of some of the spite houses I have seen around the world http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spite_house
    The blue sky and strong light make this even more beautiful too. Great architectural view, thanks as always. Happy Sunday!

    Hi Miguel
    You have made something else from this everyday scene, this woman is beautiful no dubt but her do intense gaze while surrounded by this darkness makes me think this could just as easily be a scene from a horror movie in which is the queen of some vampire colony. Interesting shot, and as a fan of horror movies that makes me smile :)

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    Shwedagon is one of the most fascinating places I have ever seen, but I was too shy to intrude on people this way :-). Actually, I think a photo like this is perfectly all right, even though it gets close and personal. The woman is doing nothing to embarrass her, but she teaches us something about her culture. Besides, it's such an excellent photo with good light and good timing that it would have been a loss to us all if you hadn't shown it.
    Kind rgards,
    Gert

    Hi Abmdsudi.
    This is an intense image, and the use of the word fervent is very well chosen, as this lady is so deep in prayer. Even though we cannot see her whole face, what we can we indicates how deep in thought she is. The close crop of the lady takes away any other distracting elements and focuses the attention purely on her devotion. Very nicely done.

    And I do not think this is intrusive, but that is perhaps easy for me to see as I am always on this side of the lens too. I have posted before of people at prayer, but this shot reminds me of a scene I cornered many years ago of a young man praying alone in an empty church. I must se e if I can find that photo. You have inspired me :)
    Best wishes

    Hi Satya
    Another mighty catch for the fishermen, and thanks for kenning the temple, I would not have seen that otherwise and now that I see it, it plays such a great part in the scene, the fishermen coming home with a fine days work under the watchful eye of the gods in the temple. I would lose to see that temple up close, even though I would have missed it, now that you have noted it, it's told color is very noticeable and beautiful. Nicely done on the light too, it does not look like it was easy to manage.
    Cheers

    Hello Paul,
    What a stunning view this is, and a technically excellent photo to show it. But thanks for the explanations. my imagination would not have sufficed to recognize the beer galss or the jug covered with foam. The very ordinary boat brings us back to the ground after looking at the spectacular highrise buildings.

    Hi Silvio,
    Lovely blue on the sky on this, and the golden light is a fine contrast to that. Nice to not only have these excellent colors, but also such a fine subject, architecture and sculpture, that makes me simile. A nice idea to inclu the man sitting down too, he offers scale to the size of the colum with the angel on top.
    Cheers

    Ciao Francesco
    Congratulations on the birth of your child. It changes everything doesn't it.
    Having said that, this is a wonderful alpine scene that invites one for a great hike amongst the lake and forests. The green color of the lake is amazing.
    have a great sunday

    A nice scenery with a dense troipcal vegetation. I could imagine that mosquitos could cause a problem in this area. The colours are very good and the pink flowers adorn the foreground.

    Hello Ourania,
    This house posed a real challenge to you. On the other hand, once you found the best light and the right angle for squeezing everything in you accomplished a very attractive photo. I get a feeling you were interested in geometry in school, because there are lots of fine shapes among these lines and colours and the play of light and shadows. The bright light shining on the façade is however the best feature.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    There is a wonderful warm and golden light that illuminates this gorgeous scenery under a brooding grey sky. The great clarity and the reflections in the water rounds this scene beautifully up.

    Hi Barnabas,
    This is a very nice moðn architectural scene, reminiscent of many urban regeneration areas around the world, but this with its distinct design. Of course, to me the tall towers help greatly as they help define the area and give it is own special appearance. Very good choice of shooting point too, you have captured a lot in this one picture and it brings across well the nice modern feeling of the area.
    Cheers

    Hello Sid
    You might not have captured a lightning bolt, but the result here is simply stunning. The brooding sky brings a real end of the world mood to the scene while the golden light of the lamps bring a positive accent of hope in it.
    Long speech, shortly said: this is a gorgeous composition indeed.

    Hi Eleu
    Flamingos don't have the most handsome of face but showing close up like this is totally diff than the conventional shot possibly one of the best ways to present this Eleu with stunning depth of gorgeous colour and detail making this a delicious capture. Indeed a glorious capture with subtle result and pleasure to look. Congrats
