    Salut mon ami!

    Your polariser makes wonder for this impressive architecturale image, darkening the sky with conviction to allow the structures to stand out. Contrasts are great, making the colours so vibrant. I like the proportions between the sky and the buildings, nicely balanced and framed.

    It's interesting to see the geometric patterns against the organic texture from the clouds. This is a destination we rarely see on these pages; you are a true Indiana Jones!... :-p))

    Cheers Angshu!

    Bravo Malgorzata!

    I can understand when someone doesn't wish to be photographed, but to react this way is over the board... And like you are saying, markets are very popular with photographers, they represent good photo opportunities, and the people working there are used to see cameras all the time...

    So unless this guy is a convict, or that is fish are famous for being rotten, this nasty fishmonger is a fruitcake. You can be sure I would have confronted him, because excited people like him excite me as well, and I can loose my politeness very fast when confronted with such a schizophrenic.

    These markets aren't secret military compound, they are open to the public, for the public, and if you wanted to shoot the fish, you should have been able to do so freely. But now this cuckoo offered you a great sample of an over agitated freak, making a storytelling image that epitomizes what it is to be intolerant and a paranoiac kook.

    You should send this photo to the market, so he can see how mad he looks with his knife. You don't exactly look like a terrorist Malgo, he should have offered you a smile and shut the f_ck up.

    I salute your guts for not letting yourself being intimidated. This is not only a "decisive moment" image, it is also an "action shot"!!!

    Kudos!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hello Stephane,

    Wonderful panoramic shot. It really give the feeling of sweeping view and open nature by the sea, the light is wonderful with pale blue sky and the colors natural and beuatiful. the pristine beach without people give the feeling of quiet and tranquility.

    Hi Lars,

    Classic NYC shot, very recognizable and yet very different and unique than the rest. Excellent quality the large version is almost too large for its own good, because we can view it in one frame, we have to scroll up and down, and then left and right. we can see the whole compositioin. it lost the impact.

    Hello JJ.

    The large version really brings out the wonderful quality of the sunflowers field. the sky and the ray of light really gives wonderful mood. Excellent image with good quality and a unique POV of the sun flowers turning the back on us. It would also make very nice shot without the sky.

    Sabaidee Abmdsudi,

    Love the dramatic light here. What you have caputre is not just landscape or sea scape. It is pure mood and atmosphere. We were immediate transport into the stormy place, I can feel the tropical wind, the sense of urgency to take cover, yet the rays of light and that warm glow in the deep of the cloud keep us captivated. Really wonderful and compelling image, the few people wind surfing adds liveliness. I'm not sure I want to be on the water, but i'm sure for them it is the love of the challenge and it must be fun for the.

    Hi Ney,

    Excellent shot here. You have been travelling the world. Congratulations! This one of the must see in Norway. I wish to be there one day. I love the POV from the wide angle, it really give a good impression of the area. I have seen many photo from here but mostly focus on the statues. So it is nice to see this one from a far away perspective.

    Hi Klaudio,

    Excellent photo of the Aztec art, while this kind of image would have scare me as a little child, at least as a grown man, I can appreciate the creative process, though I would not have want it in my house. :)

    Very good work, somthing we see in an art magazine or a museum publication.

    Hi May Jane,

    This point of view is interesting, as it puts the viewer straight in the caravan.

    The cropping focus on the mahouts and their vibrant colours, golden and red, standing out from the green leaves. You have left a little bit more space on the right side, which is good as it indicates the direction they are going towards to.

    My only reserve is that the tourist seat in the foreground is "optically crushing" the helmet of the driver in front, which could have been avoided a second or two later, when the alignment of elephants would have been slightly different, according to the terrain or the varying distance between them.

    Best regards,

    André

    Salut Jean-Jacques,

    J'aime bien l'allégorie suggérée par cette photo, mais je distingue quelques rayons qui percent la couche nuageuse d'une bien jolie façon, comme un signe que l'été n'est pas terminé et que sa fin sera peut-être meilleure que son arrivée.

    Avec ce cadrage et cette proximité, on se sent directement dans le champ, enveloppé par les tournesols qui nous tournent le dos, plutôt que d'observer la scène à distance, ce qui offre une toute autre impression. Les deux masses d'arbres sur les côtés viennent cadrer le paysage et lui donner un ancrage.

    Bon dimanche!

    A very interesting note for this charming vintage train that seems to keep going strong. The scenery is truly spectacular, thanks to a clever point of view right after the bending curve for a dramatic impression.

    Hi John,

    I am not surprised to see Cameron Diaz working in the street; I just saw her less than two hours ago in a very bad movie from Ridley Scott (The Counselor...Pfff!...) and she has now to recycle herself into a different job.

    Although she is covered with gold like an Oscar, she certainly doesn't deserve one.

    But what an elaborate costume it is! I think that your shot have much more merit to present this subject in a natural context, rather than being stoic and static while performing. I also appreciate the proximity, almost intimate, or at least close enough to see the colour of her eyes.

    Well done!

    André
