    Hi Sasha
    this is a fine photo which actually compliments your newest post about the War.

    this is a sweet family style scene, a generational type of photo.

    I'm sure the family would enjoy seeing it or having it themselves.

    a good find in the city

    Hi Ryszard
    I really like how you commented on this one, of all the beautiful subjects to photograph in Poland, you chose this lonely tree in the fields :)

    I would imagine at night it could look very spooky and scary in the right lighting haha

    excellent choice to mix it up a bit

    Hi Pedro
    from where did you get this point of view from?
    we see alot of photos of Cancun on TE, but this is the first i've seen from here!

    quite unique, it stands out well among the others.
    lots of depth, and a good mix of nature and man made.

    Hi Serge
    I must have missed this exact same sculpture.
    I like that you left some space for the architecture in the bg, same with the tall pillars.
    really like the 3D effect!

    thanks for this one

    Hi Dwaipayan
    this is certainly one of those photos where having that human element really paid off.

    love the dissapating mountain ranges in the bg, fading away, yet getting taller in the frame too.

    its a wow for me

    Hi Luciano
    truly, this isa very very attrative photo.

    you've got tones of culture, smart contrasting colors, a large archway with a town underneath it, and those boats are the icing on the cake.

    lots to appreciate here.

    Hi Gerrit
    love this shot of yours here.
    to see the long railroad tracks from high up above like this is a view point we dont' get too often at all.

    we certainly get the feel of wide open spaces and a sense of total freedom. cool post

    Hi Kasia
    i really like Gert's comments...he mentioned how funny it is how people will ask for their photo taken but know they'll probably never ever get it!

    yet anytime you can have locals ask like this, you have to say yes :)
    its these memories that really stay with us when we get home.

    sweet shot of these two ladies.

    how could i possibly pass up on this photo.
    talk about making a strong visual impact!
    the tall vertical presence caught my attention right away.

    Hola Maria querida,
    there's amazing intensity in this graphic picture, both the colours and the shadows have been enhanced in a very bold and creative way, the contrasts/conflicts are breathtaking. The textures are fascinating too. Layout and colour intensity give to the scene an abstract quality, very intriguing indeed. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great weekend,

    Hello dear Mesut,
    I wish that all people could enjoy these walls only as archeologists or visitors and no one had to find a corner within them to call it home. The problem of homelessness is huge in Greece too. Your picture is so delightful and reassuring, the greenery and the poppies adorn the walls and it's lovely that you used this smooth blue sky as backdrop. Light and colours are fabulous. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great weekend,

    Hello Ana,
    a fine dynamic composition, with great curving perspective and very inviting view for sure. All the elements of the natural scenery are attractive, they make up a splendid but peaceful view, rendered with great vividness for the viewer to experience. You balanced contrasts and definition very effectively. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonsoir Didi,
    this is a beautiful picture, the swan is well framed and adds a fine perspective into the dark setting. The sharpness of the swan is very effective against the softer backdrop; the play of light, the reflections and the contrasting colours are most appealing. His raised feathers add to him character and interest. I like the title you chose, too. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great weekend,

    Hi Gert
    yes, this one we can tell right away its scanned, and that perfectly fine too.

    you know we all love these blasts from the past, make me wonder how the photography world will change 42 years from Today?!

    I've heard that they're working on smells! Yes, when you take a photo it will capture the smell as well - not quite sure how that one works!

    too bad we can't see more of that car in the bg, its shaded. Cars also tell great stories :)

    I also wonder how this looks today, very cool post from 1972. the city in the bg is fun to explore.

    Hello Bulent,
    your photo is very attractive and intriguing and I'm very glad that you didn't drop this fine opportunity due to lack of equipment. You did a great work with the composition, juxtaposing the graphic lamps, that represent the interior, to the iconic setting that has now acquired quite a mysterious look. You realized this excellent idea in a lovely and fulfilling way. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hi John
    I bet you find this one to be quite a refreshing change, as you have recently posted photos of churches on the inside with poor/difficult lighting.

    here the lighting is superb, in fact, perhaps you even had to decrease the exposure a bit! How about that eh!

    its a good follow up to your previous outside shot.
    lucky for you to have the colors flooding the floor.

    thanks for this one, have a great weekend
