    Salut Nicolas,
    Une vache avec une saveur exotique?
    Une drôle d'image mais offrant encore un beau paysage en arrière-plan.
    La Suisse authentique.

    Hello Seyed,
    A fantastic landscape with the low hanging clouds in the narrow valley between the mountain slopes.
    Very good choice of viewpoint.
    Excellent clarity and composition.

    Hello Angel,
    What a wonderful landscape with all these round densely forested mountain tops.
    The forests are everywhere, at all sides of the town, the castle and the lakes.
    You looked for a very good viewpoint. I guess it has been a steep climb.
    Best regards, Paul

    Hallo Rob,
    Ik zie er niet onmiddellijk een mihrab in maar dat komt waarschijnlijk door de vrolijke kleuren.
    Dit is een ongelooflijk kleurrijk straatbeeld waartoe het gebouw op de achtergrond zeker nog bijdraagt.
    De eenzame figuur staat een beetje verloren tussen de kunstwerken. Misschien een tweede kunstliefhebber die heel vroeg uit de veren is.
    Waarom nam je de foto niet net aan de andere kant van de lantaarnpaal? Niet dat dit fout is aan deze foto. Ik ben gewoon benieuwd welke keuze een fotograaf maakt.
    Vele groeten, Paul

    Hello Ike,
    The branches on the foreground give us the feeling to be completely surrounded by nature, far from the inhabited world.
    The composition, the sharpness and the clarity are excellent.
    A very attractive nature picture.

    Hello Piotr,
    You've clearly chosen for a symmetrical image.
    Even the shadows on the foreground and the clouds at the top are doing a very nice effort to achieve that.
    Excellent clarity, brightness and sharpness.

    Good mix of old and new and newer.

    Hello Gert,
    I've done my best but honestly I cannot find the people you've included on your main picture ...
    On the foreground we find Arabic (I think so) writing carved on big stones. Probably Arabic because of the religious nature of the text or has Azerbaijani ever been written in the Arabic script (like Turkish once was)?
    I had expected that you would have chosen your altered image # 2 to be your head photo but you surprise me.
    It's not the first time that I see a frame to take pictures through like in your workshop but I cannot remember where I've seen it.
    It gives me the feeling that I'm considered as stupid and not able to find the ideal spot by myself. Just like footsteps where you can stand to have the best view. Sometimes tourists are heavily underestimated :)
    Best regards, Paul

    Bonjour Denis

    Fine minimalism and gentle, natural colours. A bit different and great post. I think I'd have cropped off that stretch of sand at the top to create an even greater sense of isolation.

    Hello Krysztof

    Great use of the old wooden window to create a frame. The nature scene beyond is really wonderful in all its simplicity. The swing in the tree is a nice little detail.

    An earlier post that I had missed. Shame on me, 'cause it is a beauty. Wonderful soft pastel paint, a bit bizarre to use it for a military construction. Great low light creates excellent shadows. I also like the tight crop.

    Congratulations.

    Fully agree on the light being amazing, Craig. Good of you to wait for the carrybag man to come along. My only regret is that I don't understand the slogan on the wall. Who or what are chibos and why does someone want them dead?

    Hello Neyvan

    Another amazing shot from the road. The red mountains, the road, the tunnel and the stream below remind of some landscapes I've seen in remote parts of China.

    Superb light, great timing to get that car in just right & a truly excellent picture! Congratulations.

    Salut Philippe,
    Un point de vue qui aurait produit probablement un meilleur résultat en hiver grâce aux branches effeuillés.
    Je suppose que les hautes tours ont aussi des toits à pignons.
    Intéressant à voir avec le pont et le pont-levis menant à l'entrée.

    La personne qui se penche derrière le coin nous donne une meilleure idée de la dimension des statues.
    Après tant de siècles, ce site est encore assez intact.
    Un reposoir imposant!
    Et pas trop de touristes lors de votre visite.
