    Hi Pavle,
    I have seen a second ago a photo from Naples by Luciano which showed an incredible mix of cables and similar elements. Here similarly a nice spot with so many cables passing through.
    Very realistic reportage, great idea!

    Bonjour Cricri,
    I am not surprised you have spot this scene with the dogs enjoying the walk along the Seine.
    I am packed and leave in the afternoon. I hope to be able to make a Seine cruise as well, but I haven't planned it yet. I start with the Disneyland :)
    I hope I will have a bit better weather than in this photo. It gives the photo a melancholic touch but I do prefer direct sunlight...
    Very well seen and captured!

    Hi John,
    very impressive picture. I like especially the multiple horizontal layers behind the ship. Fantastic sharpness I wouldn't guess that it was taken from such a distance!
    Interesting mood of the bad weather day. Most of all it does feel as far in the sea.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Lars,
    I had the pleasure to visit Boston a while ago but it was in pre digital times. I think I uploaded just one pic from Boston to my TE gallery just to mark the spot on the map...
    This is a beautiful presentation of the lovely building which I remember very well. It is so crispy sharp with all elaborate details well visible. t contrasts nicely with the modern architecture around it.
    Beautiful work!!

    Hi Takero,
    I was first very surprised to see that the girl is not Japanese :)
    Also the architecture in the back is of a different style.
    Fantastic portrait and reportage from Mexico. The girl is beautiful and the clothes so colorful. We can also see that there are more girls in the same pose behind here.
    That must have been a great spectacle to watch.
    Fantastic people photography!!

    Hola Luis,
    I had the pleasure to be in this spot not such a long time ago!
    It is a very picturesque town and the cathedral is of course a highlight.
    It is hard to photograph it though from a close distance since the streets are so narrow and the square around it not too big. Here I see also you included the famous clock tower.
    Very impressive effect with the group of tourists crowding in the very centre.
    There is indeed so much to see and photograph over there. I am glad that some of our paths are similar while other are different. Some of your photos raise my memories other are provoking to go there again :)
    Beautiful work,

    Ciao Luciano,
    fantastic composition. You made of the disturbing elements a great subject for this picture. The pizza stands out here.... well it is Naples!
    Fantastic background, I like very much such busy compositions with an artistic mess.

    Bonjour Serge,
    lovely scene from this famous town. Lovely group of elegant houses made in different styles. You captured it in a great light, the shadows make it feel very natural.
    The boat with tourists adds some more life and interest.

    Bonjour Denis,
    beautiful composition with flowers! The pink flowers are so pretty and most of all their color is so vivid! Nice idea with the use of the shallow depth of the field. In this way the flowers are nicely emphasized while the spectacular mountain view is well blurred in the back.
    Fantastic effect, great work!!!

    Hi John,
    this is an amazing quality! I did try it by myself watching the very same planes (as we agreed) in the Sunderland Airshow on the same day but my photos are quite bad.
    Well my camera is much worse and so is the lens but also I believe we had much worse weather with terrible sky and light on that day. So my photos were washed out of colors very much. I am still happy that I went there, for me it was thought more as a family day out.

    I see Malgo has already shared info about the legendary Polish division of RAF. Indeed I remember as a child reading a lot of stories describing the actual fights by the pilots.
    So for me this was the most interesting part of the show to see the Hurricanes and Spitfires flying around.

    This picture feels as if it could have been taken in WWII...
    Excellent work!!

    Bonjour Philippe,
    what a beautiful castle. For some reason it does feel a bit as if it was a miniature but I would not be able to tell. It looks quite real to me.

    You have selected a perfect angle to present it. The light comes from a side but the effect is still beautiful. It feels very real very three dimensional.
    Excellent work,

    Bonjour Jean,
    you are right sometimes the spectacle starts even before the blue hour. I think blue hour is especially interesting in the towns where the balance of artificial light with the lights of nature plays a major role.
    In the natural scenery the sunsets or the time immediately following the sunset is probably the most impressive.
    Here is a wonderful example of it. This is spectacular.
    Not only the colors are amazing but also you have selected a perfect POV to make the best use of the silhouettes and reflections.
    Excellent work!!

    wow this is a very impressive capture of the rain. The light was extraordinary allowing us to see the town in the valley. Amazing effect with the clouds and streams of the rain. The mountains frame the view beautifully on both sides.

    Czesc Piotr,
    a to musialo cie pewnie troche zasmucic. Raz w zyciu jest sie w takim miejscu i akurat costam odnawiaja.
    Wyjatkowe w swoim rodzaju miejsce. Ciesze sie ze sie nie poddales i jednak pokazujesz je nam tutaj. Ja tez chyba podziele sie kilkoma miejscami ktore po prostu bardzo mi sie podobaly ale mialy jakies felery fotograficzne typu ludzie weszli nie tak jak trzeba czy swiatlo bylo nie z tej strony. To po prostu fotografia podroznicza :)
    Super ciekawe miejsce i widze ze sprowokowales nawet Malgorzate zeby wrocic do zdjec z Armenii :)
    Pozdrawiam serdecznie,

    Hi Abmdsudi,
    great portrait, I like the traditional clothes of the women. It makes this picture so interesting. Of course on top of that the experienced face is always very photogenic and you made a perfect use of that here.
    This reminds me a bit the nuns which are so much more popular on streets of Polish towns than in the west. I must try to photograph them next time in my home country!
    Excellent work,
