    Hello Frank,
    Poppies are definitely my favorite flowers. I usually see them a bit further south were they often line the roads or railway tracks, more rarely covering entire fields like here. Their colour is fantastic, especially along with the green leaves and stems. This is another fine photo from the rural parts of Rügen, a simple but very beautiful scenery far away from the cities. It's not a complicated photo. This kind of landscape doesn't need any complications.
    Cheers,
    Gert

    Hi Carlo
    its fun to capture these scene in dirty puddle water :)
    we have to look through the water to get the idea.
    love the wiggle and the movement of the architecture.
    excellent colors too, that helps out alot.

    Hi Karolina
    its fun to capture these spy kind of shots of everyday life.
    its a casual moment caught on camera, nothing too powerful, nothing too spectacular but its hot that hint of romance and mystery. fine post

    Hi Juliette
    wonderful looking shot you got here.
    the exposure of the lighting is spot on.
    and the way the buildings face us and fade away down to the left is attractive too, it flows smartly.
    excellent shot

    Hi Pierre
    Oh yes, the BIG O.
    What is it being used for now?
    Looks like they have a new rooftop to it too.
    lots of good memories of this ballpark, attended many Montreal Expos games when I lived in Ottawa.

    thanks for this view, we don't see it enough on TE.

    Hi Andre
    Oh yeah, this is very cool!
    I could look at photos like this all day long.
    love the corkscrew twisting type of motion, and having that lady standing so still on the bottom left really puts things into perspective.

    Hi Tiffany
    we don't get to see many photos from the Yukon on TE do we!
    interesting note, i'm glad you gave us some history of this place.

    the mountains are common in Canada, but to see the typical Canadian trees in a desert landscape is kinda weird!

    great post for TE, a welcome sight.

    Hi Takero
    beauty!
    this firework photo is a bit different because you have the bottom 4 lights spurting upwards like that, we don't see that usually.
    you couldn't have asked for a better moment to capture these explosions. fine work as you do always!

    Hi Lars
    I wish we could see more and more photos of Montreal like this on TE, its a beautiful city.

    so you didn't take the zip line across the city eh? haha
    I don't think i've seen this exact viewpoint of the city before, thanks for showing it today.

    its great to have the building skyline with a hint of beach, very cool.

    Hello Craig,
    These roofs should be teeming with activities, but I only see one or two persons (maybe). Perhaps this was a very hot part of the day. This is not only a very blue town, it also looks very congested. Where are the streets? Is there room enough for a car or even a rickshaw between the houses? I know the perspectives can play games with your eyes, but this really looks very dense. And I wonder what the neighbors think of the guy who painted his house pink. Traitor?
    Bets wishes,
    Gert

    Hi Nicolas
    I always enjoy viewing your landscape scenery scenes from Mother Nature.
    This I think is one of your best, the way the light beams streak across the frame is wonderful.
    and its an orange color we don't see too often.
    sweet shot all around

    Hi Les
    this isn't something you see everyday is it.
    i guess thats what makes it that much more interesting and unique too - a very cool post here on TE.
    Not sure what i like more, the clouds or he harvested corn!
    excellent depth and weird forms! fun shot

    Hello Roland,
    A very nice photo from the height of summer. Judging from the flags it was not very windy on this hot day. The quay gives the view a fine depth and the woman in partly red, as well as the man in partly blue, provide nice dots of bright colours. The colours are generally very good and the strong light is well handled.
    Regards,
    Gert

    Hi Lisa
    yeah....Tosca is now talking about going diving with you.
    Oh dear, I better bring a good book and some sun screen lol

    There's no way in heck i'll be going down there, unless of course you don't want me to make it back UP!
    Don't ask Tosca that question lol

    and you're right about the Tiger shark, its WAY more aggressive than any other shark out there. Unlike a Great White whom attack humans mostly out of mistake, the Tiger Shark attacks for the sake of attacking - yeah, I watch TV haha

    fun photo, its something I'll never get to experience on my own. Maybe one day you'll post a shot of you and Tosca as a WS photo. She has her divers licence so she's all in.

    thanks for this one as it reminds me how inadequate I am!
    Cheers

    Hi Chris
    wow, you're making it very easy to enjoy this shot.
    interesting history, I've never heard of this place, or at least I've seen it before but didn't recognize it by name.

    and as for your cheaper hotel, well look at it this way, you get to have this amazing view of the resort. That wouldn't be possible if you're staying AT the resort haha

    nice to see some trees in among the buildings on that little island, and glad to see it up and running once again - even if it is for the elite.

    I can't stress it enough how beautiful the colors and lighting are, its an awesome shot and view.

    Hi Silvio
    its so interesting to see how the city and its buildings and homes have been built around the ampitheatre.
    You wouldn't have to walk very far to go see a show :)

    and I bet the sound would have been fantastic too.
    this is a very attractive photo with the colors and the composition you set up

    Hi Stephen
    sometimes when we use this ultra wide angle lens, it creates a strange look of ordinary subjects.
    We often don't see stretches of beach fronts from one side to another side do we.

    the people look so small, everything looks diminished in size.
    but thats also the point too.
    excellent lighting and exposure settings.
    fun views
    cheers
