    Hello Roger

    Colours are a bit too saturated for my taste, but this is all about composiiton and I like the ensemble of towers and roofs and tiles here. The chimney somehow belongs and does not belong in the scene, and the same goes for the cruis ships in the bg.

    Hello Mariusz

    It seems I'm one of the few ones here who hasn't applauded this beautiful shot yet. Terrific piece of work! My congratulations (too).

    Hello Roland

    Fine framing and good reflections. A good slice of life on the road in Albania, a country that's quite unknown to me, but your picture has just moved the country up my list of places I'd love to visit.

    Cheers

    Fine architecture photography, with great definition and clarity. Sky is really good too. Your note seems to suggest it doesn't look that new anymore. That'd be a shame.

    Hello dear Bulent

    Lovely soft green moss in an almost surreal forest scene. I'm not a big fan of those Tolkien books, but surely this scene evokes those elves and golumns etc. Are you sure there isn't a unicorn hiding there somewhere?

    Great picture, thanks for sharing it.

    Hello Piotr

    A fascinating view of zigzagging stairs leading up to a big hole. First thought was that this was a tunnel, then almost immediately you notice that this can't be a road. Fascinating view, perfectly framed.

    Hello Dale

    You've posted two very pleasant pictures of these monumental horse sculptures. Both with just the heads and the sky beyond. This one is my favourite, I prefer the light here. Superb blue sky, great sharpness and definition on the horse head(s).

    A timeless bl/w nature shot, Athanasios. The play of reflection and lines is terrific. Black and white is perfect here.

    The best of the series so far for me, Ken. It doesn't really give a sense of scale, but details, colours and composition are spot on.

    Hello Ryszard

    This sure is something different & I absolutely like it. Great light in the tunnel, lovely soft tones there. I also like the off-center composition. Slight blue noise in the shade underneath the tunnel.

    Nice one!

    Je comprends ton désappointement, tu avais rêvé de quelques chose qui n'existe plus. J'aime bien cette symétrie grâce à l'eau qui double la hauteur de la maison, la présence humaine est un plus pour animer la scène

    Hi Cristina

    Good to see you back on this site with a superb -as usual- B&W shot. I like the gradation of the grey hues from floor to floor and of course the few people wandering in this scene well located.
    Congratulations
