    Hi Ike,
    I am quite surprised by how many archeological sites are there in your counry but also how almost nothing is left at all from the old structures. In Greece there are usually couple of columns still standing, here everything is in ruins. Although I belive this Greek sites may have been a bit reconstructed meaning the three columns still standing in Delphi are a reconstruction, otherwise it would look exactly like in your picure.
    Nice side light, good decorated with palm trees.
    Very good presentation,

    Hi Bev,
    this is such a wonderful place! It reminds me my favourite beach in Dublin. Sunsets must be great there! I is facing west isn't it? I like very much the rock formations and how well hidden ace is among the cliffs on both sides.
    Beautiful coast,
    very encouraging to visit Cornwall!

    Ciao Luciano,
    it does resemble for me the place in Cyprus which I have showed in one of my recent uploads. It may be not evident from my photo as I took it from a first floor and just the arches are visible but the construction seems quite similar. In Cyprus there were also souvenir shops and restaurants but I did not show that fragment.
    Lovely place, something what they call a "tourist trap".
    Very nicely processed.

    Bonjour Serge,
    what a great idea! I like very much this original lighting. It must be an interesting experience to walk in this park after dark. Great capture -well emphasizing the effect.
    Very well done!

    Hi Will,
    I remember you posting an attractive girl posing in Montenegro. You seem to hae a luck comparable to Craig who wherever he goes sees a model photo shoot.
    Lovely portrait here -the costumes are more like from a Disney movie. Although I don't know what movie would it be. Contrast with the old grey hair lady is very nice indeed. I think I had a similar contrast in one of my older photos: HERE.
    The girl in the right seems to like you :)

    Czesc Malgorzata,
    jako milosnik pocztowek musialem sie nad tym zdjeciem zatrzymac :)
    Ta wieza jest super atrakcyjna, pewnie zrobilbym jej mnostwo zdjec -i Ty tez tak zapewne zrobilas.
    Chmura powyzej wiezy natomiast budzi we mnie mieszane uczucia: z jednej strony uatrakcyjnia bardzo niebo, dodaje tez kontrastu z reszta nieba i ciemniejszymi obszarami fotografii. Martwi mnie natomiast troche ze jest zbyt jasna. Widze ze nie latwo bylo Ci wybalansowac cienie na pierwszym planie i to wlasnie jaskrawe niebo. Zastanawiam sie czy moze nie przycialbym w takiej sytuacji ciekawych skadinad dachowek na pierwszym planie.
    Tak czy owak -efekt koncowy jest znakomity!
    I bardzo mnie zacheca zeby sie tam wybrac.
    Niestety urlop mi stopnial. Moze moglbym wybrac sie tam (Pisa/Florencja/Siena)na jakis przedluzony weekend pod koniec roku... jesli pozostana mi resztki urlopu.
    Tylko nie wiem czy dla Nadii to bedzie wystarczajaco ciekawe, musze teraz w planowaniu uwzgledniac jej zainteresowania :)

    Hi Daniel,
    I am ashamed to admit that I don't know much about Romania's origins. I knew of course your language is a Roman language but I had absolutely no idea how language from this family ended up in this region of Europe.
    Lovely presentation. I like as well to include some maps in the foreground. Maybe pity that too much of the map is in the shade. On the other hand you could rest there in the shade while reading peacefully into the map.
    I have to get back to Rome someday. Rome is for me the most beautiful city in the world.
    Very original presentation of the Roman Forum.

    Bonjour Jean,
    you took quite a risk having camera with you on a kayak. The kakyaks are often a bit wiggly and I would be really afraid that I would end up with the equipment in water. But is was clearly worth it as he view is very attractive. The lighthous elegant and so well lit, it is also nicely reflected in the wate. Two surfers add some life and interest.
    Beautiful picture,

    Hola Maria,
    lovely house with an interesting history. We can spot two tired tourists having a rest. Ithey ventured outside of Paris it means they were having a very busy shedule, and so were you.
    I like the green painted elements of the house decoration. I would conmsider to correc the pespective although I have just posed a photo with a perspecive quite naturally distorted but I hink in your case it v=could be beneficial.

    Hi Paul,
    It seems: I still don't know much about the world: I would never guess that Japan may have island with palm trees and fine clean sand.
    This is so pretty here. The rocks in the foreground look quite particular indeed. It adds some mystery and interest here.
    Red structure convinces me that it is Japan indeed.
    The colors are stunning with the blue sky topping up everything nicely.
    Excellent work!

    Hi Jean Claude,
    Beautiful composition. I had the pleasure to walk in this park several years ago but for some reason there was a lot of shadow in the time I was there and my pictures did not work very well.
    I like very much your bright presentation, one can feel it is a warm sunny day, there is so much color and exotic plants.
    Wonderful work,

    Ciao Alessandro,
    I admire your well balanced exposition here. It was quite challenging with the shaded areas and well lit bright ones. I have the same camera but always struggle to get a good dynamic range with it -may be it is the lens then because I don't use L lenses.
    Lovely composition and eye catching colors.
    Very well done!!!

    Hi Burak,
    I bet everyone would love to have the view of this beautiful structure in the collection. I had a plesure to visit it a while ago but without a proper camera and in the pre-digital times. So I am jealoussly looking at your picture here. You had a great sky: often in Athens the sky gets so grayish but you had a wonderful blue with touch of clouds.
    Great light and colors.
    Very well done,

    I just love the sky here!
    The clouds are so pretty -they decorate the blue sky so nicely! The rural view works quite clean and tidy.

    Hi Daniel,
    I have travelled south from Porto through Coimbra and I don't know how could I miss Aveiro which I have seen afterwards so many beautiful photogaphs from.
    This one is quite encouraging too.
    I like very much those Portuguese pavements -so simple yet always beautiful and impressive.
    The buildings around are also stylish and very pretty, great presentation from an intersting angle.
    Excellent work!

    Hi Abmdsudi,
    I like the workshop pictures even more as they are showing how big and great this mansion is, however I see that by making this one main photo we can notice straight away the beautiful detailed decoration of the facade. It is amazing how elaborate it is.
    Very impressive and a completely unknown subject for me.

    Hi Craig,
    beautiful architecture although I am trying to imagine the top of the spire as it is hidden here but nevertheless whatever is visible is already very attractive. Nice angle with perspective from the bottom up which creates a lovely geometry. Finally -amazing weather with blue sky and nice clouds as well to make it more interesting.
    Excellent work!
