    Ciao Lisa,
    I like very much the dried foreground. The shapes are so eye catching. It contrasts somehow with the presence of water a bit further in the centre. How is it possible that the ground is so dry if there is water nearby?
    In any case very attractive view for me. I love deserts.
    If I ever get to visit Australia I really have to go to the west!
    Excellent work!

    Bonjour Cricri,
    beautiful panoramic view of this attractive coastal town. I have to admit that I have never heard about it before. Amazing location with a nice bay and harbour. The roofs are all red making it appear very stylish.
    Great colors -well saturated and natural.
    I like this POV from above -it emphasizes the fantastic location of this town.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Maria,
    I like very much the strong contrast of the white building and the dark blue surrounding. The naked tree branches add a lovely touch too. Great composition I like it!

    Bonjour Christian,
    beautiful little church. I like its architecture, it looks a bit as if it was a fragment of a larger church before and only a fragment was left from the past.
    Beautiful presentation with lovely blue sky and with some charming clouds decorating it. Very pleasant natural colors.
    Excellent work,

    Czesc Maciej,
    Mialem satysfakcje odwiedzic to miejsce i musze przyznac ze nie jest latwo zrobic takie zdjecie jak to. A to swiatlo a to tlumy ludzi a to znowu tramwaj nie wtedy gdzie trzeba. Swietnie poradziles sobie z trudnym swiatlem, mnie troche zniechecalo to wlasnie ze fasada katedry prawie zawsze byla w cieniu. Tutaj cien nie ujmuje detalom a za to tramwaj jest swietnie oswietlony. Zreszta i torowisko tworzy przyjemne zakola na pierwszym planie.
    Swietne wykonanie, gratulacje!

    Hola Luis,
    beautiful panoramic view of this lovely town. You have found a great POV to present this town in its context and emphasizing its amazing location.
    Beautiful work,

    I plan to be in Madrid in the middle of October for a short weekend break but I consider a one day trip to Toledo as well, I will let you know the details later. May be we will have a chance to meet for a lunch or dinner.

    Hi Abmdsudi,
    indeed this it the first thing which attracted my attention here: the perfectly round shape of the sun and the fact that it nicely touches the surface of the sea as if it was swimming on the water. Great capture, fantastic exposure too. The conditions were quite challenging and you did a fantastic job here. I always get a overexposed sun and burned sky around the sun.
    Well used silhouette of the boat adds some more interest.
    Excellent work!!!

    Hi Bev,
    indeed white house brings up right away the connection with the one in Washington.
    Beautiful spot here. You had a fantastic light with plenty of clouds and yet enough sunlight to illuminate the main theme. Great idea to use the grass in the foreground it adds a nice touch. It makes the scene feel like a hidden enchanted farm.
    I really have to start walking in the nature more often, especially now when the heather is blooming...
    Beautiful rural composition,

    Hi Craig,
    spectacular view! No surprise Tosca wants to get back here!
    I see you have a series of several pics from your own country. That is almost a surprise nowadays as you are switching between so many countries and trips.
    I have heard about this park of course but while I lived in US I could not afford much travel and California offered so many attractions locally...
    Fantastic geometry here the mountain seems so asymmetrical and you have perfectly used this aspect. Together with the reflection the final effect is truly extraordinary. Quite a challenging light but I like you kept it very natural.
    Excellent work!!

    Hi Nicolas,
    fantastic multi-layered composition! I like how the land is intertwined here with the water element. Nice colors too, the water is so green! The little house in the middle makes an interesting point to focus on. I like also the trees in the foreground.
    Excellent work!

    Ciao Luciano,
    beautiful sight indeed, I would love to have the opportunity to climb the stairs. Great POV which I did not see before from this lovely town. It seems you have a lot of fun traveling through the Baltic states. You had a great light at the top, which contributed to amazing atmosphere. I like the architecture too especially the two churches, but I can also spot the towers of the city walls.
    Excellent work!

    Bonjour Serge,
    amazing skyline. Again: it is still so new to me and works quite surprising: at the first sight I thought: where is it?
    Very nice presentation of this old-new panorama. The tower is well positioned off the centre.
    Very well done!!

    Hi John,
    funny thing -as you know I have also showed a picture from a similar type of museum. I admire your photo though. I was not able to capture the spirit of the old times in my photo, so in the end I just selected a photo with a nice cloud above a charming street but these museums have a unique charm which you have well caught here. The car is of course the main theme but also the surrounding is so entirely old stylish. I wonder though about the SUBWAY store at the end. I doubt it was there in old times so I assume it must be a real place to eat, which is a great idea too.
    Except for Beamish I have seen similar places although smaller in Hartlepool (Maritime Experience) and Preston Park in Stockton, they have a little street or so styled to the old times.
    It is interesting especially for children I guess.
    Lovely presentation, excellent work,
    M

    Czesc Malgorzata,
    ale to piekne miejsce i nie potrafie sobie wyobrazic lepszej kompozycji! Te swiatynie wygladaja po prostu pieknie -niesamowite kolory takie zywe ze az oczy bola! Super posadzka cos w rodzaju tych ktore bywaja w Portugalii z interesujacym bialo czarnym wzorem. Znakomita kompozycja -podoba mi sie ta ramka przy pomocy ornamentu i swietne pasuje do dwoch szpiczastych wiez, tak jakby ktos to zaprojektowal dokladnie pod ten widok. Osoby siedzace przy wejsciu rowniez dodaja uroku.
    Po prostu doskonala fotografia i naprawde zachecajaca do odwiedzin w tym miejscu.
    Ciekawe ze ci przechodnie maja cos w rodzaju cienia, jakby zdjecie bylo poruszone. Wyglada tak jakby rzeczywiscie aparat zrobil dwie fotografie i je pozniej sam nalozyl. A wiec HDR.
    Gratulacje! To pierwsza fotografia ktora naprawde zacheca mnie do podrozy do tego kraju!

    beautiful natural scene. I like the well saturated color tones. Green and blue are known to have a calming effect and so this photo works very relaxing.
    Nice asymmetric composition. The water aspect adds a very nice touch with the vivid reflection.

    Hi Lars,
    it is a very photogenic spot. I probably have it as well in my TE gallery. You have captured the architecture at a great light -everything turns orange. Everything crispy sharp we can admire all the smallest details.
    Very nice contrast of the sharp architecture with its smooth blurred reflection in the pyramide.
    The latter adds a nice diagonal touch.
    Excellent work,
