    Hi Ana
    A simple architectural features but it makes us think about the history of this place and you do this image with such style and skill at the right time of day when the subtle warm light nicely filtering through giving wonderful tones, shades and shadows. To me what so striking is the colour combination and the would be prayer is there aiding you with the compo. The building that stands the test of times! Quality shouts at you, Congrats.

    Bonjour Jean,

    A superb downward pov from a high vantage point with the red roofed houses tripping down the steep hillside towards the sea. The urban area at left contrasts well with the more open greenery at right presumably vineyards. Good sharpness and saturation. Tfs!

    Hello Malgo,

    I've no idea what this is only that it looks interesting so thanks for posting it. The statue at left and commemorative wreaths suggest a patriotic memorial of some kind, so perhaps the sculpture is a Russian flag? Good sharpness and shadow detail. Tfs!

    Kalispera Danos,

    A wonderful elevated high pov overlooking the sea with the darker silhouetted island top left and 2 moored yachts at right adding graphism to the colorful sunset shot. The sun is well positioned in the frame and perfectly exposed with no lens flare. I like the reflection cone in the water too. Tfs!

    Congratulations to Turkey for surviving its first 91 years! Hope there are many centuries ahead full of promise for Turkey. The warm orange red glow of the illuminated smoke contrasts well against the fg blue grey tones of the boy (who is atop someones shoulders) jeans and shirt. The flag makes an appropriate focal point. Tfs!

    Hello Didi - I am struck by the gorgeous golden warmth of the buildings and the way they echo the rock with tower. Sandwiched between the green trees and backed by a soft landscape this makes a wonderful scene.

    What an attractive location.

    Warm regards

    Hola Jose

    A superb vertical bookmark shot of the tower with good sharpness and excellent pov. Adequate sharpness but could be sharpened selectively excluding the sky, which I would have blurred in parts (the blue) to mask the artifacts and pixellation. Nice warm cold color contrasts too. Tfs!

    Hi Chris,
    This photo is very close to my heart. I hope you had a little more time and visited other parts of Budapest.
    I like the composition here with the interior details of the Keleti. The colours and sharpness are perfect.
    Yes, the Policemen are watching very strictly in the background.
    I will travel to Budapest in December, Xmas. I will upload some pics too.

    Howdy Ann,

    Appealing winter Trondenes Peninsula scene, the weathering wood fence, red boat house on the rocky outcrop, then the mystic mountains fading into the horizon.

    I like the reduced coloring, because attention is drawn to textures and details instead of the quick fix of bright colors. This was also our college photography class professor's preference for using monochrome explanation. "If a photo attracts in black & white, then it is because of its art elements, instead of colors".

    Thanks for sharing,
    Cheers,
    Ray

    Hello Jean,

    My train to Genova stopped here for an hour, so I know this spot. Good high pov with great sharpness and vibrant color. The beach looks strangely deserted after it was packed in mid summer. I guess the tourists have to actually work sometimes rather than lie on the beach! Tfs!

    Howdy Barnabas,

    Interesting 17th century Hungarian wood architecture of the huge bell tower, with open observation area high up and slender spire. Good to see it in fine shape after the centuries.

    Ciao Lisa,

    I sometimes miss these distinctive colors of Australia. Then I remember the flies the heat and humidity! But this is not the Kimberly or central Australia so I'd imagine it would be quite pleasant! Wonderful reflections with good saturation and crisp clear light. Tfs!

    Howdy Malgo,

    Impressed by the station's huge art mural celebrating Russia & Ukrainian peoples in earlier times. And interest added by the modern day characters.

    Having worked on designing and constructing California rail stations, we were limited in money and artistic elements were often non existent. I can remember when managing the design of the Ontario station, that the city manager wanted to purchase mature palm trees to line the passenger platform, costing a total of $10,000. I was against it, but permitted it to happen, and am glad I did now as it adds a bit of Nature to a stark track area.

    Thanks for sharing,
    Cheers,
    Ray
