    Hello Pedro,
    The central building of this university is built in an elegant architecture.
    Your point of view, the wide steps and the use of the wide angle lens present it in an imposing way.
    The blue sky with the thick cotton clouds make a beautiful backdrop.
    Best regards, Paul

    Hello Lisa,
    I've never seen this kind of completely black goats but on this picture they seem to be quite kind.
    I remember once in Italy during a nature walk I was followed by a very young goat. It stayed by my side all the time. I wanted to get rid of it when I arrived in a village and everyone in the street started laughing. The goat stayed by my side till I entered a small shop that also had an exit door in another street. A ridiculous situation but the goat was very sweet.
    In this landscape of light coloured tall grass and gray walls black goats are a striking sight.
    Best regards, Paul

    Hi Ike
    Very beautiful architectural photo showing the classic traditional style perfectly imposing over the more stylised classical. I really love your perspective here. Funnily, I usually think vehicles take away from an architectural photo but they add quite a lot, like a third layer below the buildings. Very nicely done
    Cheers

    Hi Mesut
    I think the beach is amazing in off season too, its given you this lonely and dramatic photo. The overhanging part on the left adds a strange sense to the image , enhancing the lack of people on the sand. This lace is really really made for people, so it's more notable that there are none. The sepia is a very nice choice too.
    Cheers

    Hi Erling
    Strong photo and note and I love the simple but powerful composition . The thirds division is very nicely chosen and for me makes the sene of internal isolation inside very prominent against the well lit expansive landscape outside. Great photo

    Hi Robert
    As a child I was always fascinated by these American style trucks (Optimus Prime had a lot to do wiht that) so the truck alone in this pin sharp black and white drew me in. The spiky Roman arena style hubcap is a real bonus for me as its only when I clicked that I noticed. Looking at the way they are placed, they seem to be behind the outward point of the cab stairs so I guess don't pose a risk, unless you run into it. Very cool photo.
    Cheers

    Hi Brenda
    Sculpture has become my favourite subject for photography and I must admit that I find this powerful and emotional. There is something about the expression and rather reaching hands that really hit hard. It actually remind me of a sculpture I posted a while back called the spirit of love from Gantry, where there is similar reaching of hands
    .in that it's for different but sadly similar reasons.

    It is hard to even comprehend the horror of being there as so many young died like this and I think this sculpture and photo dobeautiful justice to the event.

    Thanks for the workshop, great to ee itn in its entirety but of the two, I prefer this, it is much more soul filled for me .

    Best wishes from Ireland :)
    Cheers

    Ciao cara Lisa,

    The thought of you bounding across the Highland moors chased by a group of marauding goats is certainly inspiring but this photograph is equally so - although the goats here seem to be gazing at you with admiration and wonderment and don't look the slightest bit threatening. But perhaps there was a fence between you and them which we can't see in this photograph!

    A lovely photograph, so typical of the Highlands with the windswept grass, the old whitewashed cottage, the cloud sky and, of course, the black hairy goats. Lovely light and colours and excellent details and sharpness.

    Lovely!

    Kindest Regards,

    John.

    Hello Ourania,
    On the Greek islands the number of people in public places should be very different during the different seasons.
    Here we get indeed a sense of desolation with the empty terrace and with the sea without a boat.
    The overall colour of the picture remains blue. So the image still isn't dreary.
    Best regards, Paul

    Great oldtimer picture. Strange how the clothes of the man seem to be outdated now, while those of the Chinese woman aren't. White socks in sneakers? Check! Belly bag? Check! Funny, looking back...

    Another thing which hasn't changed is the amazing seafood streetfood in Xiamen. One of the best places I've eaten in China, and that says a lot!

    Wonderful to see how an old shot like this has gotten a second life here on TE. Thanks a lot for sharing it. (And I hope you don't mind my white socks commnent.)

    Cheers

    Ciao Camilla

    I'd never heard of this park nor of the artist, so this is a picture I welcome. The lovely desaturated mood and vignetting effect add much to the charm of the scene.

    Twas a fine series to follow. This particular zombie looks a bit bored, bored to death perhaps. But he still makes a great picture. Thanks for the series, Andrew.

    I'm trying to find hope in beauty, but it's difficult. Will this wonderful ancient town ever rise again? What's happening there is plain shameful for every human. Sad planet.

    Hello, Daniel, Yep, it is so cute car with very nice old design but it's not my cup of tea. I have so long legs, that I can't drive this one. It could be very dangerous and so comfortable. Anyway, excellent cropped photo, good details of the car.
