    Hello Brian
    1300 posts is an incredible achievement...in consistency in post and maintaining consistently high quality. Congratulations!

    Unusually you have decided to post a monochrome for this occasion. Nice work, though I would not mind an extra bit of contrast (punch)

    Heartiest Congrats once again..

    With Regards

    Hi Piotr
    i always enjoy viewing your gallery to see what new mountain shots you have.
    here we have another fine post.
    nice to see the criss cross of the diagonal lines and the clouds rolling in.
    that patch of blue works well too.
    nice shot

    Hi Brenda
    well, you have done it again!!!!!

    you have taught me something new once again about the history of NYC.

    this makes me wonder how many locals know about this? is it common knowledge? or is it known just to the history buffs and those sorts of people?

    very interesting indeed.
    graet to see the 2 ws photos too.
    thanks for this one

    Hi Robert
    great looking photo!
    i see you took this at a focal lenght of 400mm!
    what lens is this?

    clearly you're a far distance away, but the overall sharpness and clarity are excellent.

    lovely shot! very difficult to execute it but you did

    Hi Malgo
    i'm so glad you posted this one!
    I have never ever seen it before from Sydney.

    Perhaps one of the problems with having such iconic and beautiful subjects which Sydney has, it means other subjects may get left behind or forgotten...and i think that's what has happened here.

    great post to show us something totally new and different from a famous and tourist driven city

    Hi Miro
    these are always fun photos to capture.
    and i have to say its pretty damn good since it was 1/15 handheld.

    thats a very slow shutter speed for sure and nothing at all appears to be blurry.

    really like the purple/blue atmosphere too.

    Hi Brian
    Oh I remember this place very well....one of my favorite buildings in SF.

    I like that you highlighted the part of the tower with the extra piece on it, just to give it more dimension i suppose.

    love the black bg, and the cubed look it now has.
    fun shot...now I want to post a shot from SF :)

    Hi Ike
    haha...i have alot of thoughts about this post.
    you probably don't know this, but here locally in Canada, most air traveling passengers try to AVOID fly with Air Canada..me included.

    Air Canada is known locally as having very poor customer service compared to other companies, and Air Canada nickels and dimes customers to death!

    For example, if you want anything during your flight you have to pay money....u want a blanket...money...you want a pillow...money...oh my god!

    its really bad.
    I always try to fly with other companies too.

    nice shot though haha :)

    Hi Silvio
    its hard to beat this isn't it.
    its these types of scenes that first really attracted me to vitit Italy.

    such amazing history and architecture here.
    and its cool that they find old artifacts when they do the renovations on the buildings.

    very sweet looking point of view.
    excellent post, excellent subject

    Awesome shot Noel

    I would never have expected a shot like this from you today!

    and you know what??? sometimes its all about the title of the posted photo aswell...and you picked the perfect title.

    is it just me or is she kinda sexy? lol
    there's something about those eyes that just have that appeal...maybe its the unkown factor that works lol

    excellent post!

    Hi Manuel
    you can never go wrong with blue and whites, its a color combination that works every time.

    and of course when you can include the windmill at the back its pretty cool too.

    fun shot in this heat, or at least it looks warm :)

    Hi Frank
    how could anyone resist a little Fiat!?
    so cute, i'm sure it puts a smile on the face of everyone who see's it.

    good idea to crop the scene as tight as it is, you don't want any bg subjects getting in the way.

    Hi John
    well, lets get one thing out of the way first...you know what i'm thinking when I see the words
    Blackadder...right?

    such a funny comical satire...LOVE Blackadder...i swear i've almost pee'd my pants laughing. and I know Lisa is a big fan of Blackadder as well :)

    as for the photo, its gorgeous.
    I'm no Cathedral expert by any means, but i think this light colored ceiling is not the norm...and i love it.

    and there's a slight orange/yellow glow too thats quite nice.

    Glascow!!! Can't wait to see the architecture in this city someday...

    enjoy your Sunday

    Hi JJ
    does France ever stop showing off its beauty!?
    amazing how many photogenic places there are in France.

    I like the way the photo slopes downward because of the stone wall, but the two towers are straight :)

    excellent color arrangement and exposure.

    I knew right away it was Trinidad!
    just by looking at this one scene SO many memories come flashing back.

    so true to the everyday lives and culture of the city.
    love the rustic elements here.

    fun to capture the trailing car lights too, thats always a bonus.

    good for you guys to just go ahead and rent a car!
    thats awesome!

    look what you would have missed if you decided to stay home. glad you're sharing it with us here too.

    wonderful view from the Castle, lots to see all around.
    strange to see the Orange color on this Church, not too common.

    great shot though.

    Hi Gosia
    now this looks like a fun photo to take!
    don't really expect to see such a beautiful structure in the bg behind the water fountain, but i love it.
    and i like that you focused in on the tower itself, its quite sharp and in-focus.
    nice work
