    Hi Luciano,
    Dight lights don't hide rough textures of that old building. Calm evening moment where that photographer indeed brings some needed action.

    Hello Ike,
    What a beautifully green lawn. It makes such a great contrast to the grey sky. I imagine this is a very fashionable part of the city, judging from the style of the buildings behind the trees. The well saturated colours and the fine clarity no doubt mean a lot to this photo.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Excellent light, clarity and sharpness, Craig! This is a great shot full of 'couleur locale'. Congratulations.

    Hello Craig,
    I am glad that you have learned to like this kind of photos that may not be technically totally perfect but capture the atmosphere of a brief moment. There is so much to treasure in this picture: the colours of the shirts, the colour and details of the wall, the light near the wall, the faces turned towards you. Maybe you have realized that "nothing special" often means the "very special" photos that show people busy with their real lives. Such photos are usually unique. A photo looking exactly like this has never been taken before, but there are many more or less identical photos of the Taj Mahal or the Eiffel Tower.
    Best wishes,
    Gert

    Hello Greg

    It may be a screen capture, but it still is one of the best pictures of old Bromo I've ever seen. Light is very good (very different from when we were there) and the man on the edge is just superb!

    Congratulations!

    Barren, cold and most impressive scenery.
    I love the composition too.

    Hello Sergio

    Yes, this does look like a very fascinating place. Very un-USA-like. It looks like a great place to visit and explore. Let's just hope the people can keep their identity and culture in dignity.

    Always great to see another brandy shot from Serbia.

    Hello Paul

    Great nature picture with bold colours. Also that one spot of red is very noteable. Good exposure to create that soft water flowing.

    An interesting lesson in how to make brandy accompanying by some useful photos. Well realised collage. I like the nicely rendered textures and warm colours. Thanks for sharing.

    Ola Ricardo

    Wonderful colonial architecture captured in bright colours. I also like the walking man in the middle.

    The two neighboring houses seem pretty interesting too.

    I'm still a bit ind oubt whether the black pole on the right is a good idea or not. I think I'll go with it...

    Cheers & congratulations

    Surely my daughter's dream to go riding like this. Great use of the tree to please her photographing dad as well. He also likes the soft and natural tones in the picture.

    The effects make it look alien, like a stage set in a studio. That's not meant in any negative way, as the result is very beautiful and most pleasing. Congratulations again, Recep. Thanks for posting.

    Hello Silvio,
    The repeating brick arches create depth and perspective for the composition. The image is ideally exposed and the colours and textural detail well rendered. One wonders how many feet have walked along this ancient passageway during the passing of the centuries.

    Hello Claude,
    Maybe he is ready for a fight with one of the crocodiles found in Manchester, or he is on his way to act as a soldier in a reenactment of the battle of Waterloo. He is anyway well spotted in a place full of matching colours.

    Hello Sergio,
    The freshly painted doors and windows indicate these buildings are still inhabited, so it's a pity no people are seen here. They are probably tired of being photographed by tourists, which is understandable. It's a good photo anyway, with the excellent colours and light and the fine view of the buildings that it provides.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Excellent point of view on these attractive roofs. I like how the chimneys seemingly rise up the frame from right to left. Agreeable lights and colours; very good clarity. Fine rendering of the textural detail.

    Hello Sergio,
    The oblique point of view shows the unique adobe architecture to great effect. The warm colours of the earthwork contrast nicely with the saturated blue sky.
