    Hi Paul
    so there are real ghosts in these places!!! Oh man, that is something I certainly want to experience :)
    Imagine posting a GHOST photo on TE haha

    this is a place i missed for sure, i'm a little bummed out about it, wish I had known about these ghosts towns.

    looks like a great place to walk around and explore.
    But I wouldn't want to be here alone.
    great subject! love it

    Hi Pierre
    this photo was taken in 1970! I wonder how it looks now a few decades later...have you been back here?
    looks like a very windy day here, but still has lots of sweet views and makes us want to relax on the beach.
    I also like the two tones of blue.
    enjoy your day

    Hi Serge
    so, does France have a town or city thats NOT photogenic!
    its unbelievable how many charming places there are in this country - and you've found another one here.

    I like how it seems to be nestled into the woods and into the hillsides. Almost like the towns in Italy :)

    sweet composition and dimmed lighting, i like this one alot
    cheers

    Hi Ney
    awesome shot.
    what's not to like about this one!
    not only do the mountains stand out well, but the clouds do too. the clouds are hugging the mountains all the way across.
    Wish I could see this place in person.
    great shot

    Hi Piotr
    gotta love the wide angle lens right!
    I never leave home without it haha

    the sky and clouds make a strong visual impression, as do the stone on the ground, it looks quite vast.

    the orange colour on the left stands out too.
    well done with the exposure settings.

    Hi Robert
    I think I mentioned to you before that I grew up in Newfoundland and Ottawa, now i'm living out in Vancouver.
    Here out west, we just don't get to see such winter atmospheres unless we go up into the mountain areas.

    This reminds me of being a kid again living in cold winter conditions and I love it.
    clean and crisp air
    cheers

    Hi Angel
    this would certainly be a place i'd like to check out for myself some time.
    I know that the lighting was difficult, but who cares, its a natural wonder of Mother Nature.
    interesting subjects, thanks for sharing it.

    Hi Ike
    imagine this photo without the attractive lighting, it just wouldn't be the same. The lighting is bright and yellow, warm and invites us in. I've taken many photos of such statues with dull light and they suck!
    not this one.
    enjoy your day

    Hi Noel
    interesting to hear you say the church is quite bland and boring on the inside and outside - I wouldn't have thought that by how it looks here.
    obviously its an attractive photo with the lighting and reflections.

    PS
    I laughed out loud with your comment about finding a model in the woods in my latest post - that was funny dude!

    Hi Luciano
    just imagine the history here, its remarkable.
    glad you included a bit of the rooftop, it has so much rustic texture, it totally complements the entire scene.
    even the lines on the ground look great, giving a neat visual effect. cool shot my friend

    Hi Serge
    I just had to take the time to view this one again.
    if you ever wanted to see a charming little village or town, this has to be it.
    Must be a long and interesting history here too.
    I would love to get inside one of those homes.
    thanks for this post with its attractive lighting.

    I'm impressed, well done my friend.
    its not easy to do such a climb, not many people get to experience such a feat.
    lovely views, and i'm trying to imagine the fresh air up here!

    Hi Bev
    lovely shot.
    I bet these are priced rather high, especially because there are so few of them as well.
    the scene has a real rustic feel and mood to it, the large rocky beach helps with that, as does the unpredictable weather conditions. Despite that, it seems rather quite and peaceful, even romantic perhaps? haha
    enjoy your day

    the misty air adds a nice touch to this one, as do the lime green and splashes of red.

    Hi Gert
    So you made it all that way but you couldn't make it to the top top! Oh Gert! haha...just razzing you, you made it most of the way and it sounds hard!

    India amazes me for its poor sanitation and living conditions, yet they build such masterpieces like this Temple..if you think about it, its quite strange!!!

    Love your story, love your WS's, and of course we see a pile or two of feces in your India shot - now THAT's India. lol
    gotta love it!

    lovely shot, TE is so famous for these reflection kind of shots, and why not right?
    I like the difference in exposure from the top portion to the bottom portion.
    really like the composition too.

    Hi Ryszard
    fun shot for sure.
    the scene has alot of depth, the boats seem to go on for infinity as if we're looking at some landscape scenery.
    and brooding clouds add alot of atmosphere and depth as well.
    excellent clarity and colours, the lighting worked out well for you too.

    Hi Takero
    now this is another one of those interesting Japanese festivals, hard to imagine participating in one of these :)
    I have a question....how DO you get to participate in them? Do you have to sign up? is there a limit? Is there preparation involved?

    wonderful capture of human emotion, this is what you're best at. Too bad you can't photograph them this year though.
    cheers
