    This time I had chosen to take a stroll in your gallery, Burak, found this picture with "none" written as a note to this, and it's not too late to added some explanation by the "EDIT" tab.
    A most vibrant scene on the waterfront, some action goe's on as "rush-hour" looks, taken from a superior POV.

    Hola Pedro,
    I must say a big OH,WOW... superbly how you caught this moment, when the tourists-carriage just turned the corner.
    One side of the special-yellow house is under bright light while around the corner it is shaded, than contrast by other colors - masterfully balanced this to a wonderful picture.
    Buen fin de semana,

    Hi Bulent
    Lovely in the way the subject matter has been framed. That bit of blue corner top left serves to emphasise the leading diagonal and it does give some depth to the shot. Although there isnt a single focal point within the gold coloured rocks, the variation in shape due to the viewing angle does provide sufficient interest for the roving eye. Lovely shot, Congrats and tfs
    Best wishes

    The beams and lintel in an skewed angle along with the steeple, has created an attractive sight of the church from a close range, Murat.
    The complementary WS show a nice area view around.
    Fine picture, a nice idea for the POV.

    Hello Mesut,

    Lovely picture, it is really blue voyage:). Very romantic with the full moon.
    PS. I can't understand what is the sense to show the photos with so many pixels. In www version it is very small and in beta is too big - it is impossible to see the composition and usually the sharpness is gone. And it is difficult to see the note and the picture in the same time when opening new window. In my experience, 1600 pixels is optimal - the whole screen and easy to read the note.

    Have a nice day, it will be probably hot but no problem on the water.

    Ciao Carlo,

    Washing day also here. Now I can also have washing day in my garden, it it hot and no rain is expected. But I have no such an old tower close. For us it seems incredible that these houses and towers are centuries old, the people who are living there are used to it. Nice opuntias, and the place looks cool in the hot day.

    Hello Chris, Now you are moving fast from one place to another. New towns, new countries. Lovely picture from Sarajevo. Nice composition, charming river and houses, pretty colours.
    I was in Sarajevo in 1968 with my mother, my first encounter with muslim world. I still remember how fascinated I was seeing people in Turkish traditional dress and on the cemetery. What a pity there were no digital cameras that time. I couldn't believe in what I saw later in media.

    Have a nice trip Malgo

    Hello Jean. Ah, what memories! The first British TE-Meeting was in Keswick and I had a great pleasure to be there. I can imagine that it can be very touristy, better to find a quiet place like this one. Nice picture from Lake District, walked somewhere near this place too, I suppose. attractive trees, still leafless in spring.

    Hello Ray,

    Haha, It really looks like fort in India! Amazing regular shape. No wonder the name of it is Castle Valley. As for nature views, the best in the world is Utah, so various and unique. The brown colour seems a bit strange, I remember more vivid red rocks.
    Excellent composition.

    Buongiorno Carlo,
    A bell tower that is very prominent on the rural country sight, well showing the bell itself. The surrounding green had contrast from the colorful yellow chair and cloths hanging to dry.
    Fine exposure, collected nice scene.

    Hello, Indeed, As an old woman I have no problem with making photos like this. But you made nice quick shot. The kids have fun, and so we do. It seems that Chicago is well worth seeing and there are sometimes nice offers for a relatively cheap flight but my visa has expired already and the new one is expensive.
    I go to the lakes with LF on Friday and then in less than three weeks for my short (but I expect intensive) trip to Lofoten.

    Also in Warsaw the hot days are coming, but I can stand home and it is quite cool inside. And I survived brazilian heat, so I am used to it.

    A nice summer-heat shot, Craig, though Chicago known as the windy-city and winter mostly feezing there - temp.'s are climbing during summers, and i remember saw on the news one year ago that roads had the asphalt melted under 35C there.
    Fine shot, colorful and with the water jet you made this so refreshing sight.
    Have a nice weekend,
    Ike

    *** 1/2000 exp. does not guarantee an absolute sharpness, you still have to follow the movement(panning) and constantly checking the exposure - one passing cloud, and the image would be darkening. 1 out of 10 come with great result, rough statistic's. Thanks.
