    Hi Carlo
    I'm sure Gert would appreciate this one when he see's it :)

    having the two ladies on the bottom right extends the scene, our eyes are drawn down to that area, and the same is said for the windows at the top left.

    the photo is pulled in both directions making it larger. nice one
    cheers

    Hi Krzysztof
    again, I can look at these everyday and never get bored of them.

    even the trees surrounding the home need to be cleaned up, so it adds to the allure of the 'abandoned'

    excellent shot and subject

    Hi Piotr
    I think the blue sky on the top right is actually very important, it gives a smart looking contrast to the other colors.

    excellent sharpness all around, the brick and rooftop are both very clear and well defined.

    sweet close up, easy to like this one

    Hi Mesut
    yes, I also want to know what has happened behind this door! If only the walls could tell stories right?

    lots of textures, lots of peeling paint, and the mystery is the best!

    HI Eleu
    strong post today.
    very fitting with the National Holiday.
    I'm actually struggling to find words to describe that photo, but I guess that's the point...its more of an emotional scene/photo.
    well done

    Hi Luis
    what can i say?
    its a beauty!
    love the addition of the green trees along the bottom, it breaks up the yellow colors smartly.
    super side composition with the warm light.
    its a wow for me

    Hi Ana
    well, you fooled me. I actually thought this was a real person I was looking at in the smaller thumbnail gallery.

    Reading your note, I really like the sense of community involvement - thats really important.

    for obvious reasons, this one has alot of color and the white wall is vital as it gives the colors a contrasting backdrop.

    cheers

    Hi Maria
    now whats an Indian photo without a cow! Of course the Cow has to be in the scene :)

    lots of bright colors and lots of interest overall.
    another thing that sparked my interest is the STD lettering in the bg...we noticed that same sign everywhere we visited in several different cities.

    almost everyone is looking directly at you, you must have stood out :)
    fun photo

    Hi Mics
    it looks to be a rather large boat yes?
    also looks to be very sturdy in the water, no tipping.

    for obvious reasons the water, the mountains, and the warm environment make this one tempting to all of us :)

    thanks for this one

    Hi Stephen
    what is it with us photographers that these large door always seem to interest us :)

    It will capture our attention everytime, and I guess it did to you aswell.

    a simple thing like the bikes and the smaller open door changes the scene up a bit but it works.
    fun shot

    Hi Kari
    I'm not sure why but there's something funny about having the biker rideing directly behing the tram - is he afrais to get lost or someting :)

    after reading your note, now I know to hop on the #1 bus :)

    I like that you cropped it allowing the windows to fit in to the scene on the left, small things like that make alot of difference to the overall final product.

    cheers

    Hi Ecmel
    how could i possibly resist this one.
    this is something we'd see out of a story book or a childrens book.

    for some reason it just has that fairy-tale appeal.
    lovely sky, lovely red rusted color rooftops and many many windows.

    sweet compo with the river too.
    nice shot

    Hi Gosia
    sorry, I have not been keeping up on your latest posts!
    I'll have to take a look.

    very cool shot, i chose this one out of your latest group bc it caught my attention right away.

    smart idea to get down low and point the lens upwards like this.
    something different and unique, all the colors and lighting works in unicen.
    great shot

    Hi Bev
    you know John is going to have a few words to say about this one :)
    I'm just as much of a car/auto lover as John, but I certainly don't have the knowledge and history as he does with the industry.

    I'm sure he'll love this one.

    You're so right when it comes to photographing these cars at car events, there are so many people walking around making it difficult.

    glad you waited though, its well worth it right!
    I'm not sure how comfortable of a ride this VW is, but it sure looks snazzy.

    cool post!

    Hi Angel
    fantastic subject.
    this is a very unique looking lighthouse, very different from all the rest i've seen.
    usually i don't like center placement of subjects but i have to be honest in that this one works well.

    lovely color contrast with the blues and browns too.

    Hi Erling
    nice!
    Here the wide angle really shows off its potential.
    I like how the scene is divided into two areas, in a V shape - kind of guiding our eyes down each lane.

    very cool atmospheric conditions for the scene too.
    and of course the pretty lady always helps :)

    excellent post

    Hi Omid
    thanks for another photo from this area.
    all the people we see down below, are they walking towards you or away from you?

    where you took this photo, is that where the geyser is?

    its so interesting to see this landscape in Iran, something i think most of us have never seen before.

    i've been enjoying these
    thanks

    Hi Christiane
    we often don't get to see such vivid orange colors like that in photos, so this one is quite unique in that regard.

    the color really does act as a focal point, our eyes are drawn to it immediately.

    I also like how the scene climbs, it has alot of height and depth to it.
    sweet shot

    Hi Krzysztof
    its great that you're walking into these abandoned homes!

    you never know what you may find right!

    sometimes even walking up or down staircases can be very dangerous.

    on the far wall, where we see your shadow, is that a doorway leading downstairs? Looks very creepy.

    love this shot! thanks for posting it
    cheers
