    Merhaba Recep Bey,

    Venedik kanallarinin en muhtesem bir fotografi. Insan boyle bir manzaradan bikamaz. Ben de Venedik de kendi cektigim fotograflardan bir slide show hazirladim: Life on the Venetian Canals.

    Selam ve saygilarimla,

    Hello Jean,

    Again, I'm delighted to see that you took the photo under a cloudy sky, eliminating stark contrasts in light and shade. The color and detail of the stone comes through so much better. Your note is much appreciated.

    Warm regards,

    Bulent

    Hi Bulent
    as i'm looking at this ship I see 26 horizontal sails, wow, thats alot!

    what I like most about this one, is the compo.
    We are always taught to compose by rules of thirds, but sometimes it works well to go outside of those guidlines.

    Really like the upfront and center positioning, with equal space on each side.

    Also, the large white border works well too.
    attractive shot all around
    Cheers

    Hi Mariusz
    thats not a color combination we get to see very often in boats, blue and black, but I like it.

    I think this is one of those photos where you could have even left out the sky and it still would have been fine.

    there some very bright light on the far right, but I don't think there was much you could have done really.

    the boats and the triple arches steal the show.
    I bet there are excellent blue hour views with the arches and reflections!

    see you around

    Hi Ryszard
    I'm a big fan of Poland's Town Halls, it seems like each and every one of them is quite attractive.
    smart idea to capture this one on its side rather than straight on. the perspecitve and angles are more impactual this way.

    fine color contrast with the yellows and blues too.
    Cheers

    Hi Silvio
    I thought at first this was taken in France or Switzerland, it certainly has that look to it.

    nice to have that cloud coverage, it makes the scene look a bit softer.

    but of course the best feature has to be that church tower, lots of charm there.
    a fine sense of depth and height in this one

    cheers

    this looks like a wicked hike!
    love this rustic look, very wild and raw.
    it would be worth the time and effort for sure.
    great views, great accomplishment.

    Hi Ney
    you know how I feel about your photos from Chicago, its like stepping back into the past from a recent trip.

    I try to remember all the buildings you show us.
    the one in the middle is the best here.
    love the small details above and below each window.
    if you look at the building on the left, it doesn't have those details.

    fun upwards pov works well too.
    thanks for this one
    Cheers

    Hi Angel
    always enjoy your shots.
    I like the soft colors, soft colors and ambiance.
    and you can't go wrong with a few arches in there to create a nice flow of static motion.
    thanks for this one

    Hi Malgo
    Oh i love this view, and I knew you'd post it at some point.

    its so different in the winter months, I think both times of the year are beautiful.
    If I had to pick i'd still pick winter because i like the sprinkle of snow :)

    But perhaps seeing it with greenery and flowers, yeah, that'd be sweet too!

    Love your excitement level, we can really feel it in your note and in your words. Gotta have the Passion!

    really appreciate the ws photos as well, its always fun to see some different views.

    keep them coming!
    Cheers

    Hi Jean
    I know I keep repeating myself, but i'm so impressed with France - there seems to be an endless supply of picturesque towns and photographs to be had.

    and this is certainly one that i've never heard of before.

    of course the tallest building in the town is the Church/Cathedral.

    you have yourself a wonderful vantage point, showing off the charm and old time buildings. Too bad for the building on the far left, it kind of doesn't fit style wise :)

    but overall, a lovely photograph and compo.
    cheers

    Hi Jean
    personally, its hard to resist photo from marinas with charming boats like this.
    It will always draw my attention.

    its nice to have the boats scatttered around the frame, as it gives our eyes something new to focus on as we scan the image.

    thanks for this one

    Hi Marc
    great to see you back on TE, we need all the members we can get - as you may have heard alot of members have been leaving and not coming back.

    as for the photo....Oh man...i was in Banff just a few weeks ago and i was looking for this composition....where exactly is this taken from?
    do you remember the trail name or the hike name?
    I'll be going back to banff again

    reading your note, you endured alot of conditions to get this one, so good on ya to follow through.

    love the look of the forest green colors, and the aqua colors of the water with the long exposure.

    nothing to complain about here
    Cheers

    Hi Christian
    I thought I'd take a look at some of your older shots.

    this one caught my attention as i like winter scenes.
    For obvious reasons I thought this was taken in Switzerland somewhere.

    its nice how the scene flows in depth and in height.
    lovely colors as they contrast well with the snow.
    Wishing I were here :)

    Cheers

    Hello Mariusz,

    What a spectacular scene. The small boats in the foreground help to anchor the scene. Of course the real focal point is the triptych created by the three arches. They are three complementary scenes outlined in oval frames.

    Bonjour Pierre,

    The classic car is beautifully photographed, from the best vantage point — showing the front and one side. As a young artist I had a passion for drawing and designing automobiles, and this, I thought was the best possible angle. I am surprised the roadster is not from the 30s but, I imagine it was completely custom built!?!

    Warm regards,

    Bulent

    Hi Gert
    hmmm...it really does have a Brno type of feel and look to it no??

    I remember seeing that Column in the travel guide book we purchased for the Czech Rep.

    Noel would get a kick out of those sculptures there in the water fountain :)

    Don't want to sound stereotypical, but this is the type of scene when I think about most European cities, open squares with a fountain, and connected tenement style buildings in various colors.
    All of which are things we don't really have here in Canada or the US - well, except for the water fountains.

    a very pleasant city shot, great to see the city we didn't get to see!

    I'm off to work, see you around
