    Hi Ike,
    Dubrovnik is such an attractive town full of atmosphere which is very hard to capture in a picture. I was very dissatisfied with most of my photos taken there, they are rarely showing the beauty of the town.
    I remember this fragment of the street. You have squeezed in the tower, the dome of the church and the hill in between. The quality is not perfect but the photo is a nice souvenir and gives us a hint about what to expect in this lovely old town. I would love to get back there again having more time to stroll through the streets and take more photos at different times of the day.
    Nice reportage,

    Ciao Carlo,
    very attractive asymmetrical composition from the vineyard.
    I tried something similar in the past SEE HERE, but I didn't have these juicy fruit in the composition plus you have a wonderful scene on the horizon too.
    Excellent work!

    Hola Angel,
    the boats add a lovely touch to this natural view.
    I like how the blue color is framing the scene from the top and the bottom.
    Very well spotted. It has a very quiet relaxing touch to it.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Chris,
    indeed this view reminded me of Toledo as well. I had the pleasure to visit Toledo almost a year ago with adramad.
    You had a fantastic side light. I like the strong contrasts they add a natural and three dimensional feeling to the scene.
    The spectacular sky is like the icing on the cake.
    Breath taking scene and the highest quality picture,

    Bonjour Denis,
    beautiful harbour scene, it has all elements one could wish for this occasion: lighthouse, lobster cages, colorful houses along.
    Very picturesque scene, captured in a perfect light which makes everything look so attractive.
    The highest quality photography as usual!

    Ciao Silvio,
    wow this is an amazing view! First of all of course the framing is just perfect. The statue on the left and the tree on the right. And the depth of the field is amazing too. The statue itself is so interesting and no matter what the view would be behind it would be a great photo. But here in addition to the lovely foreground we have a spectacular vista behind. The town and the aqueduct can be found in the very centre. And the snow covered mountains.
    Breath taking scene!
    Excellent composition,

    Ciao Luciano,
    wow this is a very impressive waterfall!
    I like very much the inclusion of people at the bottom, they appear so tiny and make us to appreciate better the huge size of the falls. The falls are also lovely framed from both sides filling the frame so efficiently.
    Spectacular view!
    Excellent work,

    Hi Daniel,
    fantastic composition with the pleasantly repeated motif of the pillar. The pavement contributes some shiny reflections, and the lamps are repeated as well.
    Wonderful eye catching geometry,

    Bonjour Jean,
    is it a lighthouse? It looks quite extraordinary!
    The town seems lovely and both this tower and the blue boat are attracting the attention very much adding to the interest.
    Charming place for a walk. Very well composed,
    Excellent work,

    wspaniala kompozycja. Skaly pieknie wygladaja w atrakcyjnym swietle. Jest na tyle dobre ze widac przerozne wzory i teksture skal a zarazem bywa przycmione chumrami w niektorych miejscach co jeszcze dodaje wzorkow.
    Znakomicie wypatrzone. Nie tylko bywasz we wspanialych miejscach ale masz rowniez wyjatkowo dobre oko do takich scen jak ta.
    Pozdrawiam serdecznie,

    Hi Ourania,
    with such a sexy silhouette in the foreground every view would be amazing, and so it the case here as well ;)
    Of course her staring at the boat in the distance adds a lovely melancholic touch.
    You are right: usually when I face quite a challenging light conditions I also consider to turn to B&W which is much more forgiving.
    Great effect, congratulations!

    Hi Lars,
    beautiful view. I see you have thought through the composition very well. In the very centre there is this characteristic tower. It is perfectly framed with the fountain. The fountain itself is so pretty plus people seem to be enjoying it, in particular the couple sitting on the edge adds a romantic touch.
    Wonderful weather and colors. Very attractive for the eye.
    Excellent work,

    I like very much postcards. These towers are indeed quite characteristic. I have been twice to Copenhagen but never went to see this famous Roskilde Cathedral.

    Hi Abmdsudi,
    so it is called mirror and it really is!
    Breath taking scenery. You also had a fantastic light here.
    We can spot several layers of composition, each with different texture and color.
    The picturesque scene is nicely framed with shadow on the left and the tree branch silhouette on the right.
    The symmetry is amazing.
    Spectacular work,

    Thanks Craig! I will definitely use your route as an inspiration in the future.
    It seems you may have selected the most attractive spots so my planning will be easier :)
    Very attractive place and I understand you well that even though you may have other photos you are more proud of -you still want to share the particular place. I do that most of the time. In fact this is actually what I mainly do at the moment since I don't have much time for artistic photos anymore. But I quite enjoy it.
    In your case it is just a modesty. I love the attractive rocks in the foreground and the unique location of the ruins.
    The light was difficult but then again this is exactly how Scotland looks most of the time, very realistic, a bit dark but still beautiful.
    Excellent work,

    Hola Luis,
    I remember your other photo from this square: when I got to Split I tried to reproduce it but I was there at a wrong time of the day I believe. This composition surprises me as well. You have a great eye for such original compositions: I have been there and I missed such a great opportunity as well.
    Very creative perspective!
    These arches make wonderful repeated motif. The resulting geometry is very attractive!
    Excellent work!!
