    Hi Jean
    two things i like about this shot the most...the composition and the overall subject.

    the ceiling is fantastic too, lots of lines and forms flowing up to the top portions of the frame.
    elegant and a bit rustic.

    Hi Chris
    reminds me of some places in Hawaii!
    its easy to enjoy this one.
    lovely colors, lovely atmosphere.
    and its kind of funny to see the contrast between the rocky landscape and the smooth soothing waters.
    nice shot

    Hi Ryszard
    this is like a rainbow row of homes :)
    certainly catches our attention from the gallery page, it stands out well.

    nice to have that little pop of clouds too, just for added fun.

    charming place indeed. amazing history here, imagine what it looked like back in the 1200's!

    Hi Denis
    this one is all about the composition!
    what a beautiful photograph.
    love how the open street adds depth and leads us into the upper portions of the scene.
    everything just flows so naturally, its very easy on the eyes.
    lovely light and colors as your usual too.

    Hi Malgo
    oh I think i'd love this place.
    its a rainbow of color, lots of pizzaz and style.
    its something we don't get to see very often at all.

    and best of all, you have yourself a wicked blue sky to go along with it. its frustrating when the sky doesn't co-operate.

    fun shot

    Hi Brenda
    yes, i've commented on those photos from Ana as well, so this is a good complimentary photo to go along with hers.

    its nice to hear that you sound surprised, even from a locals perspective - it sounds like you didn't expect to see this here.

    is it just me, or does Lady Liberty look a bit angry lol

    excellent street shot, classic nyc with a bit of a twist

    Hi Carlo
    as you probably know, I love abandoned buildings.
    so this one is right up my alley.

    lots of history here, lots of grunge, lots of weeds to sort through in the garden :)

    wonderful subject, lots of textures too.
    excellent post

    Hi Delphine
    I know some people may feel the scene could use some people to liven it up a bit, but not every street scene is that way.
    sometimes it's good to have a quite atmosphere.
    i like this little narrow street with the tall buildings and window shutters.
    and the grey tones add to the atmosphere.
    pleasing and quite

    Hi Daniel
    beautiful!
    this is my favorite shot of yours from this area so far.

    guess its kind of the 'classic' photo right?
    nothing wrong with that at all.

    nice to see a mixture of clouds, blue sky, snow and green trees...a bit of everything.

    wonderful post, very attractive.

    PS
    we booked our rental car yesterday, thanks for the tip!
    much appreciated indeed.

    Hi Alfred
    awesome shots from Varanasi.
    My girlfriend and I just came back from here as well.

    here we see a wonderful example of the architecture, the local people and the boats. the 3 main elements of this area.

    Did you get hounded with alot of people coming up to you asking to purchase items? we did.

    wonderful overview

    Hi Gerrit
    Soccer, Baseball, Basketball...yup...they play them all everywhere indeed.

    It was disheartening when we saw the young boys playing soccer in the streets with deflated old balls, same with playing baseball. Using old torn-up gloves.

    next time we go we'll bring some new equipment for them.

    fun shot of daily life

    Hi Jean Claude
    I wonder how this street looked hundreds of years ago!
    that is such a strange style of a building, i'd love to be able to get inside and take a look around.
    cool to see the train/tram lines too.
    this is SO European!

    Hi Manuel
    yes, the Golden Wall.
    looks fantastic.
    you chose an excellent time to photograph these walls with the light striking them.

    its so cool to see these new modern streets mixed in with the old Medieval fortresses.
    If only the original builders could see this today!

    Hi Costantino
    always like these city overview type of scenes.
    its easy to see why these cities are built near the water.

    love seeing the city lights, the depth, and just the overall view here.

    I like that you show us some different and unique places around the state of California!
    I've never heard of this lake before.
    looks like something we may see on a different planet or moon :)

    love the cloud formations, the mountains in the bg and the overall scene for what it is.

    how could anybody complain about a view like that.

    here we have an interesting building!
    I know I say it a lot, but I'd love to get the chance to see the insides! I bet its quite unique.

    Hi Silvio
    sometimes you show us these town from way up high, sometimes you show them to us from below...I like them both.

    seems like a nice day in late March, no snow, or at least very little of it.

    excellent exposure in these harsh lighting conditions, it turned out well.

    soft pale blues and nice white clouds.
    thanks for this one
