    Hi John,
    this is a wonderful presentation of the ruins. Scottish Borders seem like a great place to visit :)
    Great exposition and/or processing with the light balanced perfectly across the frame. Composition great aw well with perfectly straight perspective, it works so elegantly here with the urn in the right making an interesting foreground and being so straight!
    Fantastic well saturated and natural colors! The person adds some life and is a good scale marker.
    Excellent work!!!

    Hi Bev,
    I guess I should put it on my list. For some reason I am not a big fan of things which are from this period. In Ireland one could see some stone circles and they were quite boring. That discouraged me a bit. This is of course bigger so may be more impressive. Some things are must-see just because one need to make own opinion about them in person.
    Having people in the photo help actually to imagine the scale and appreciate it better.
    Nice mood with the typical English summer weather. It is August and I see people in warm jackets. And in photos of emka from Siberia taken few days ago we see still summer...
    One cannot have everything I guess ;)
    Great work here,

    Bonjour Jean,
    very fruitful walk at the low tide. Plenty of creative compositions which well explore the theme. These rods here are perfectly used to create the depth plus they reflect in the puddles of residual water enhancing the interest in the foreground.
    Beautiful work!

    Czesc Malgorzata,
    nie boisz sie nawet troche mowiac po polsku albo z obcym akcentem po rosyjsku? Jak Cie za dlugo nie bedzie na TE to zadzwonie do ambasady :)

    Piekne zblizenie tego wyjatkowego kosciola czy tez cerkwii. Kolory bajeczne, znowu zasluguja na oddzielny park tematyczny w Las Vegas :)
    Swietne wykorzystanie tego posagu na pierwszym planie.
    No i piekne niebieskie niebo! U nas szanse na niebieskie niebo sa dopiero w przyszlym roku naw wiosne...
    Pozdrawiam serdecznie,

    Hi Roland,
    beautiful landscape. I like so much volcanic landscapes due to their amazing colors. Fantastic composition here with the crater making and interesting foreground and nice paths behind contributing to geometry. Presence of people helps to imagine the scale.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Noel,
    wow this is a spectacular work. Fantastic processing here. Motif of the gate opening to a church was used by me several times in photos of churches in Ireland but you have used this idea so well, I like also the palm trees adding some more exotic touch here.
    Very impressive, no words to give it a justice!

    Hi John,
    I cross my fingers for Scotland now and for it choosing the right way, whatever it may be...
    I think I could guess your vote :)

    Very funny capture here: the hairy bodies of men look so funny in the ballet dresses. There is some sort of contrast in it.
    Nice close up of the performers.
    Excellent work!!

    Hi Ann,
    this is really impressive! It reminds me the Apostles in Australia (which I know form photos only) This seems possibly even bigger. Fantastic composition I like very much the presence of the person with a dog it adds so much life and interest and they were place here by you in the very best spot! I like the subtle mist further in the distance. Beautiful spot -perfectly used opportunity.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Angshu,
    this is so beautiful that I cannot believe it is real. There are so many colors and variety of such different layers that it looks more like a painting that a photograph. Spectacular view, perfectly showed here by you.

    beautiful little town. I have never heard about it before. It seems that the whole Alsace is packed fully with beautiful places and so photogenic. Great capture here with wonderful sky and so much color all around. The architecture seems very unique.

    Hi Abmdsudi,
    another masterpiece in your collection!
    I like how nicely round you managed to preserve the sun shape. It is usually quite challenging. The silhouettes make strong points here: the one of the lighthouse but also the little boat far in the distance.

    Excellent work!

    interesting atmosphere with the sunrise subtly appearing and painting the sky with warm colors. Great hotel, very elegant and expensive :) I like the two layers of the cliffs across the lake.

    I have been to SF, NYC and Toronto but I am very jealous of the other capitol city postcard photos which you have presented like this one here. Very impressive collection of beautiful panoramas from perfect POVs and with high quality. That is what I would like to have in my gallery.

    what a beautiful light! So warm and pleasant. Colors so attractive and everything crispy sharp.
    Dark clouds add a dramatic touch. Very well composed with the nets in the foreground and other port motifs around.
