    Stunning festive shot I love your pov and great use of dof so close to the action, indeed a strong picture with combination of their sheer determination, strength and jovial mood! There's a wonderful contrast against the background with those four eyes in the back are icing on the cake for me. It must be a fantastic location and atmosphere be there, you made it and share with us, Congrats

    Hello Craig,
    Good for you that the horse wanted company. He gave you a very nice photo opportunity, bringing charm and beauty - and life - to the view. The scenery is great too, but the horse is the best feature. And you didn't even need the drone for this one!
    The Icelandic horses are very popular in Sweden too, because they are sturdy and friendly and suitable for those who are not so very familiar with horses. But once they have left Iceland they are never allowed to come back.
    Have a nice weekend,
    Gert

    Hello Christiane,
    There is a very nice balance between the lawn, path, water and pavilion. It is a beautiful view and a well composed photo where the small red pavilion is perfectly framed by the trees. The relatively dark clouds were no disadvantage at all. The light and colours are very pleasant.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Rob,
    This is great. Finally I get to see the piano player properly without any disturbing bridge or skyscapers. ;-). And what a fine piano. I didn't see its great decorations properly on the other photos. It's actually very interesting to see the girl playing in the WS, showing that this is not a piano for just one person. I find it fascinating that a brief TE meeting could come up with with such different photos. Or maybe you all decided together who would post which photo.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hi John
    Lined of classic old buildings showing more of the architectural splendour, shapes and colour with immense appeal presented in fine detail. The marriage of colour to blue sky is so much more than satisfying aided by good clarity with the admirers add all the lively effect. Such vibrancy adding the extra zing. Congrats

    Hi Gyorgy
    The composition takes your eye into the eye catching
    buildig, yet there's a person to see along the way as lead in. Good use of bold colours and particularly well done on finding an interesting and original take of this place, not so easy I would say when I think it's the most photographed sight. Well done, Congrats

    Hello Jean Claude,
    Yes, these photos are common, but I like this anyhow. The graffiti is really strong and expressive and the persons on the narrow pavements make the view lively. I like the low perspective, the fine colours and the good exposure.

    Hello Piotr,
    It's an excellent view of Berat, although this doesn't seem like the central part of the city. The colours and light are wonderful and the sharpness is perfect. I am amazed to see the low level of water in the the river. If it looked like this in June, I wonder how low it is now, after a long dry summer.

    Hello John,
    The houses are beautiful and the view across the river is very pleasant. You used the two nearest persons well. They fill the foreground, animate the view and make us feel we can admire the buildings with their eyes. The colours and hight are perfectly crisp and clear.

    Hi Jean
    Lovely light, colours and shadows you get really drawn into details of the view and does illustrate peacefulness of the place. While the imposing abbey grabs attention, I like the fact that you have included the artistic sculpture as complementary feature binding the shot together, and the visitors give a lively finishing touch. Woderful take, Congrats

    Hi Murat
    A bygone age! but isn't it great that we remember things like this of a well described shot. This museum makes everything looks clean, sheer 'luxury' they had a bed to sleep, it's interesting to visit though and nicely recorded. Well done, Congrats

    Hi Christiane
    A wonderful capture of this nterior with soft warm light and colour that goes with it as perfect attractions on this. I think every inch just shouts out for attention leading us deeper into the scene and everything literally falls into the frame on for a good composition here. Awesome low light, Congrats

    Hello Gy÷rgy,
    When I meet newly wed couples in the street I feel totally free to take whatever pictures I want. The street is a public domain, but in a place like this I would maybe have felt like an intruder. Perhaps you were invited, or at least they agreed to your activities. It's a good photo and they are nicely framed by the window and the white vaults, but it doesn't have the spontaneity of a street photo.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Ike,
    I always try to remember to look up now and then when I walk in unfamiliar streets, but obviously it pays to look up even close to home. I am sure there are things to discover also in my neighbourhood. But this was a remarkable view to find. A balcony gallery like this must be a rare thing. The statues look so realistic you might be afraid they could fall down and hurt themselves. The photos are amusing and very well taken.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Dale,
    Lagos, Portugal looks a lot nicer than Lagos, Nigeria. The street and the jetty, along with palms and boats, create fine depth, and the distant white buildings look neat and pleasant. The view is enlivened by the people strolling along the water. Colours and clarity are fine.

    Hello bev,
    The boardwalk and the groyne (the computer wants to "correct" this to groin) are making nice diagonals in opposing directions and there are enough people to make the view interesting. The foreground looks a bit untidy but the view of the sea and the distant beach is lovely.

    Hi Jorge
    Position of the white washed chapels on the slope blend into the environment in most unusual way it seems. They easily grab attention here. It's very nice idea with your pov and framing guiding us throughout producing an incredible shot. Beautiful Greek spectacle, Congrats.

    Hi Ryszard
    Lovely show of water fountain in its natural colour as main interest presented to its best effect making use of available elements. You have done really well with the exposure, good perspective and speck of vivid colours but the people actually renders its liveliness making lots of different. A productive street shot so well taken, Congrats.
