    Hi Malgo
    yes, airports really can offer up some pretty cool views now adays. I think airports are all trying to out do each other in creative visually entertaining pieces. Airports certainly have changed over the years.

    wow, thats one busy airport by those numbers! and I agree with you about being at the airport, its exciting.

    glad you took this shot, different to see palm trees indoors like that. cheers

    Hi Krzysztof
    I wonder in the Carriage world, which one of these that you've posted would be considered a Porsche of Carriages? :)

    this one is cool with its oversized back wheels and undersized front wheels, and its highly decorated as well. another fine indoor shot. looks great

    Hi Piotr
    ok, at first I thought you took this photo with the drone!
    looks like its taken from a very high point. neat to see how the town is laid out on the landscape like that. and again, we see how they liked to use basically one color for the rooftops. lovely pov from the fortress. well done

    Hi Christiane
    its great to see you now on Instagram as well!! haha

    and once again, clearly we took the same walk all around Warsaw :)

    If my memory is correct, there is a KFC just off to the right side of the frame. its a hard scene to photograph, and I see you're difficulty with how to compose the buildings. the light and exposures are spot on, very bright and lively, wonderful buildings too. cheers

    Hi Pavle
    haha...so you climbed up on the rooftop - good for you, I like that in a photographer, going to the extra mile to get your photo :)

    a lovely combination of light and dark, light and shadow. sweet atmosphere, and also a hint of grime with that rust colored roof. cheers

    Hi Chris
    you know, now that I think about it, we don't have very many jumping photos on TE, so its nice to see something a bit different here.

    I take it you didn't jump in with your camera haha
    obviously this photo is excellent because of the unique vantage point directly down. love the bright colors too.

    this is actually quite beautiful, its as if the building are 2 dancers, and they are moving with each other. well done! great eye to spot this. cheers

    Hi Jorge
    i like this one because it has that formal look to it, the only thing missing is a bride and groom standing on it kissing haha.

    Really like that grey brooding sky as well, that adds alot to the overall look and atmosphere. sweet shot

    Hi Stephen
    sweet, always fun to get those reflection photos right?
    if we look closely we can see the warped images and warped lines, thats important. and also, we can see the blue tinge in the glass to make it stand out even more - the reflected areas. cool cheers

    Hi Gert
    3 photos in a row without people...i'm starting to enjoy your gallery more and more hahahaha...just joking my friend.

    I know i'm only looking at this in a photo, but to me that Chimney is 100% real. We can see shading and textures on it for sure. and you know i'm going to love this scene for what it is...this building is in rough shape and i love that. the colors are strange too, a weird puke green haha
    faded paint all over the place, crusty window sills...love it! keep it going

    hmmm...interesting shot because I like how you're positioned off to the side. this side angle creates a different feel all together. and there's lots of geometric shapes and figures all over the frame as well. excellent bw shot. cheers

    Hi John
    yes, more street views of this lovely town please. I congrat you on this photo bc this isn't the typical shot I'd take, but seeing it here makes me think I should take more like this.

    nice to have the curved shape of the buildings on the right and the ones facing us directly on the left. the people add alot of curiousity as well. sweet quick pic.

    Hi Bev
    well, i've learned something new today...i knew what these 'things' were for and their purpose, I didn't know they were called Groynes. is it like a pulled groin muscle? that same sound? groin and groyne

    this beach is huge, it curves all the way around, and there are so many people out there too. Looks very family oriented and a fun place to spend an afternoon indeed. another bright and awesome TE beta pic!

    wonderful scene you've captured here, and I really like the post processing you did on it to make it looks amazing. the contrast levels are superb, the textures in the water are excellent. love the look of the ship on the right. your shot has both grit and beauty. cheers

    I always love and appreciate these night time shots of city scapes, these are some of my favorites.

    excellent TE post because we all get to learn about the event you mentioned - for me, its the first i've heard of it. love the blue hour look with the darkened buildings and a touch of orange. wonderful scene! cheers
