    Hi Serghei,
    Well chosen close-up shot of these old logs. Nice light showing the forms well. My father has made a few buildings of such round logs, with those carefully shaped joints.

    Hi Neyvan,
    Magnificient view down to that famous canyon. Steep downwards angle gives strong effect. Direction of light is good adding some contrasty shadows. I also like the dead and alive trees next to each other.

    Hi Sven-Erich,
    I think it is a superb idea of the modelmakers to advertise on real locomotives. This has sort of fantasy look, I like it much. Good diagonal angle.

    Hi Burak,
    Church and yellow toned lights go well together with blueish toned sky. They make the grey winter day look much more colourful. Well seen moment from last winter when we didn't get much snow.

    Hi Pilar,
    We share the same theme today. Backlight really gives lovely golden glow on these oak leaves. I guess this isn't really high up in the Pyrenees as the oak still has leaves in November?

    Hi Asa,
    I have visited Hohenschwangau, but I don't think I've seen it from this angle. It it in harmony with the foreground building and green parkland. Good natural framing with the foreground trees.

    Hi Daniel,
    Special angle on this old tram running on some sort of embankment. Strong backlight works surprisingle well thanks to your exact exposure.

    Hi Brian,
    You have framed this shot in original way that certainly wouldn't come first to mind. Beautiful texture which becomes more interesting with the shadows of ropes. The red ensign is an excellent detail.

    Picturesque view of distant mountains. You have picked the essence of this landscape with tele. Triangle patterns repeat in so many colours. Simply amazing.

    Hi Aleksander,
    Beautiful directly upwards view of the cathedral ceiling. Those star patterns look really good. And so does the chandelier. This looks exceptionally luminous compared to many church interiors.

    Hi Eleu,
    Again a classic warbird from your portfolio. There must be many air shows on that corner of USA! Colourful extra details make this look good. A just had to do some googling to get a closer view of that decoration, Executive Sweet.

    Hi Frank,
    Always good to see shots from places that have such a big personal importance for the photographer. Quite moody and timeless church. Looking at the exposure values it was really dim in there, and indeed those window openings are small. Good angle showing the gothic building structures.

    No lawn on that 'backyard'. A scene full of local atmosphere. And perfectly timed shot showing this family crossing the creek.

    Hi Craig,
    By looking angry this guy got probably exactly opposite result than what he wanted and became the main subject. So, better be cool!
    This shows well how there are steep hills in this city. Cobblestones and all thayt merchandise hanging give good local atmosphere.

    Hi Roland,
    Quite efficient graphism, thanks to high viewpoint and well chosen square format. Textrure of concrete shows well. People on the reflective clothing make a good main subject.

    Dirty windshield makes a dreamlike result, like an art print. And rusty red truck makes a special frame for this portrait of a boy.

    Hi Manuel,
    What a great effect those umbrellas make! Strong colourful repeating patterns. It took me awhile to realize you shot them upwards against the sky. Flash worked well on this one.

    Hi Noel,
    This is a fun combination of awesome landcape and modern culture phenomenon. I'm not a fan of selfies either, but I believe such a stick can make them suck less...
    Those stones are awesome, and somehow the sky seems to repeat the pattern.

    Hi Craig,
    Beautiful viewpoing showing buildings both fairly cloase and as background silhouettes. Late blue hour light is lovely, this city doesn't seem to save on illumination!
    I guess that bridge is up by default and is lowered only on sparse train traffic?
    Congratulations for your #900!

    Hi Sayeed,
    Shadows of these camels and their riders certainly make a timeless looking shot. Simple scene with wonderful result. Shadows of the feet make a strong perspective.
