    Hi Christiane
    this is the type of photo that I would take with my super wide angle :)

    really enjoy the low profile type of viewpoint you've achieved.

    amazing sharpness and overall clarity, lovely light too.
    well done

    Hi Carlo
    this photo is similar in style to what we see from our friend Silvio in Italy :)

    seeing all those long fields, its making me want to run wild and run forever :)

    attractive color pallet.

    Hi Ike
    these water reflection photos will always be popular on TE, and I have to admit that I am one of those who really love these.

    they're fun to take and fun to view.

    its all about the wiggle!
    love the wiggle!

    Hi Malgo
    thanks so much for your 7 years of service!
    haha..
    it just wouldn't be the same without you here, thats for sure.

    now that i've been to Poland, i think i would have guessed this was a Polish scene without the notes or places listed..it just has that Polish look i suppose.

    lovely colors, lovely light. hard to believe you have almost 2000 posted photos!

    Hi Luis
    I love how these buildings in your gallery just seem to pop off the page!
    this one is right upfront and center, captured my attention immediately.

    nice to have the people in the fg too, as well as the blue and white sky with the large black and white borders. everything works so well together.

    now this is certainly one of those housed that i MUST get to see the inside :)
    I would love to take a walk in and around it.

    love the rooftop too, thats the best part :)

    Hi Brian
    there surely are some pretty amazing pieces of architecture in London now aren't there!
    Modern pieces that is.

    looks like something from a Star Trek movie, its pretty damn cool indeed.

    it dwarfs everything around it, especially the London Eye. awesome.

    Hi Mesut
    before reading your note, i'm trying to figure out what the heck this could be...i still have no idea. I'll have to read i guess.

    Ah, so its storage for honey bee boxes...nice.
    a very unique and original subject to post of TE.

    the low pov makes it more powerful and dominating.
    nice shot

    Hi Serge
    I kind of get the feeling this town looks better from this vantage point than it does down at street level inside the town itself :)

    love how its set up against the edge of the land and close to the water. from here it looks fantastic.
    lovely colors and light make it work well.

    Hi Ray
    torn down for a Walgreens? yikes!
    there are thousands of Walgreens in the US, what a shame!

    I'm sure they would have been fine with one LESS Walgreens store.

    lets hope this one stays alive for a long long time.
    love how the color of the theater seems to blend in well with the color of the car.

    love the car too, who wouldn't!
    a fine collection of golden oldies!

    Hi Eleu
    wonderful shot with its bright blue colors and you zoomed out a bit to make sure you got the formation down perfectly.

    that yellow really does make a statement.

    so who are better? US Navy Blue Angels or the Canadian Snow Birds? hmmm...

    nice shot

    no tripod here? did you take this one handheld or sitting on a ledge?

    looks fantastic with the blue light and swirling twisting merry go round.

    Hi Abmdsudi
    yes you're right, she does complement the scene well.
    in fact in my opinion, she's the star of the show.
    when i view the photo as a whole, my eyes are drawn to her immediately, and the architecture is secondary.

    So actually, now that i think about it...the temple compliments the lady very well :) haha

    great shot

    wonderful subject!
    this is awesome indeed!

    there is a gritty feel to the scene, yet also a feeling that the place is still used and still lived-in.
    its a perfect match!

    love the atmosphere and textures, love the pov too.
    wonderful post! one of your best from Portugal!

    Hi Lisa
    a couple of TE members used the words exploitation and powerful to describe the scene and note, and i have to agree.

    I really enjoyed reading Bulents critique.
    Me...i'm not so elegant with my words as he.
    But I certainly agree to this thoughts on this subject.

    as for the photo itself, its actually quite beautiful with its colors and such...just too bad and such a sad story that coincides with it.

    a post with alot of emotional impact.
    see you around

    Hi Ana
    great looking scene you've captured here.
    as you say, its fun to photograph these urban art scenes.
    they often have lots of color and draw attention to themselves easily.

    the evening light is super, and the red sign sticks out as if its wanting to try to be the #1 show in town :)
    well taken

    looks like its almost brand new, but i'm not sure if it is or not.

    has a richness and sophistication about it doesn't it.
