    Hi Carlo
    this one put a smile on my face right away.
    I know the ship in the bg isn't in total focus, but who cares.
    the simplicity and minimalism is the key here.
    also, the two blue tones make a great visual impact as well.
    sweet shot, creative eye.
    cheers

    Hi Kari
    now this is beautiful!!! I absolutely love this.
    I wish I was here to capture the scene too.
    your photo is sweet too, because of the clear blue skyline, and the overall look of the Cubism is A+
    One of my favourites of yours

    Hi Brenda
    see...i told you I learn something new each and every time I read your notes! This time we have the Motto for NY State.

    It would be interesting to capture the exact same photo 10 years from now, 20 years from now, and compare them.
    are those NYC Cops down there?

    I'm surprised you didn't include in the note some of the costs per ride etc...fun shots of these new places
    cheers

    Hi Sergio
    yeah its pretty hard to avoid this photo from your gallery page, those colour jump off the screen right away and catch our attention.

    its a bit strange to see the streets and side walks so empty, i wonder if it were nap time :)

    and the street seems to continue on until infinity, thats cool. sweet colours, balconies and doors. cheers

    Hi Danos
    thats quite the history, I enjoyed reading that, lots of interesting information there. Interesting too, to see how its functionality had changed to relate to the changing industry needs and technology.

    from this angle, the ship looks very large, the people look so tiny. great story, great history, love the subject.

    Hi Stephen
    this one looks sort of funky from the gallery page, perhaps its the angle you took the photo, but it appears the building is missing a side or something :)

    the pale blue sky is very attractive, as are the chimneys up top, thats a great bonus. neat building to look at, and it has tons of history for history buffs. cheers

    Hi Luciano
    that person standing there looks kind of creepy and mysterious, what's he/she doing? Maybe they're going to jump into the water :)

    the best parts are the arches and its reflections, along with the buildings reflected with those brown colour tones. lovely shot. cheers

    Hi Nicolas
    I'm glad I decided to click on this one, its much better than I thought, and in the larger format it looks great.
    the mountain tops look like jagged teeth :)
    good to have the track sin the lower fg too, to fill out the frame, lovely nature landscape. cheers

    Hi Philippe
    this is certainly a different type of scene isn't it?
    You'd think you took this in Florida :)
    its kind of a chaotic scene, but its the colours which stand out that make it work. too bad there wasn't a person or two sitting on a bike :) fun shot

    Hi Brenda
    ok, i know I learn something new everytime you post a note, but this time i'm quite surprised - that Latin phrase is used on your currency and its been a traditional Motto of the US????? News to me! Seriously, I have never heard of that phrase before. Guess I should pay more attention.

    good for you guys to get a new subway station, its almost 100 years late, but better late than never :)
    thanks for the update on whats new and interesting

    Hi Robert
    fun shot of these stone statues.
    One of them on the left is blocked out, but we can get past that :) the others are in fine sunlight, and the depth is very good, as is the height progression to fill out the frame. creative compo, it worked out well for you

    Hi Bev
    sometimes the title of the photo makes all the difference, love your choice of title - you basically created an entire story line from it.

    like you said, where did they go, what was their purpose, how many were there? its got that look and feel of dinosaur tracks. fun shot and creative title.

    Hi Rob
    well, i have to say, i like this one alot more than that stupid Clown display haha
    At least i can appreciate the workmanship and detail here.

    I wonder where they get shorts that size to fit him! haha
    is the hair real? I like the fact the womans skin is wrinkled where he is grabbing onto her arm - very life like indeed. intriguing artwork. cheers

    we don't see many photos like this from Italy, glad to see it.
    very attractive shadow and light combinations, the terrain is quite odd, much smoother than I thought it would be.

    how can you possibly complain about having a mountain landscape in the bg of your scene haha, thats great.
    and if we look closely, I think we can even see a town in the Valley on the left. very cool rooftops too, lots of textures with that and the bricks. nice shot.

    Hi John
    more fog, this is very cool indeed.
    love the tall trees on the left, they grab my attention just as much as the sheep and the fog do.
    and i like the atmosphere the most. funny to have the sheep looking directly at you :)
    again - who says you need bright sunlight! excellent shot
