    Hello Maria,

    Truly a very fiery sky!
    Silhouetted features always make interesting details against such a b/g!
    I like how the hanging leaves are symbolically repeated in the hanging lamps.
    The tree is strongly placed on the thirds line creating a good composition.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Gerrit,

    This is the sort of path on which I would like to ride my bike. The area where I live is much too hilly!!
    On a bike there is much to see that can easily be missed in a car!
    You have provided us with a fine lead line along the side of the water, where there are water fowl in abundance and a distant cyclist to follow. The terracotta roofed houses are pleasing details on the horizon.
    You have captured the characteristics of this lowland area with fine sharpness.

    A crop of some of the sky would have placed the horizon nearer the thirds line and created more of a panoramic impression.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Howdy Sven,

    Unusual and attractive image, with the window shop of clothing and purse below, the ornate architecture of Aachen Cathedral above. The domes and tower are eye-catching for their design with arches, and multiple angles.
    Thanks for sharing,
    Cheers,

    Hello Chris,

    It's a shot with enormous impact.
    The silhouetted Angel looks stunning against the pale blue sky.
    Your viewpoint creates a fine sense of depth, with the statue's legs standing neatly on the thirds line.

    I like it very much.
    Sadly I have only been able to see it from the motorway but I would love to get a shot like this.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Attractive view of ancient Volterra, the walls and street look centuries old with rough composition rocks. And the outdoor dining tables inviting.

    Would enjoy strolling Volterra soaking in the history.

    Hi Ray

    I think I have a shot in my gallery of this same rock. It reminds me of Cappadocia in central Turkey. The warm reddish brown colors contrast superbly against the blue sky. Excellent sharpness and framing. Tfs.

    Howdy Saber,

    Beautiful interior scene of the museum, the mosaic artwork within the fountain, arches, and dome combine to impress. Being a 'history major' I would love to tour this attractive blend of architecture and art.

    Hello Klaudio,

    A new area of KL that most tourists do not know about. Thanks so much for sharing. The heat is almost palpable. Good late afternoon shot merging into a sunset. Nice sharpness with good color and saturation. You are more than welcome to post on TE a lot more often. I have to agree with you that a lot of the really inspiring photographers have deserted the site. Hope to see more of your shots real soon! Tfs.

    Hi Mariusz
    Beautiful wide shot in particular with all the verticals, from the people and right up to minaret on the mosque which sits well in the sunlight! Such elaborate architecture and wealth of colours to savour, as always you provide such interesting b/g information that does enhance ones appreciation. Great shot, Congrats

    Hello Gert,

    A good downward pov shot from a superb high elevation. The lonely woman tourist enlivens the empty alleyway passage and provides scale and animates the scene. I like the minimalist color of mostly grey. Tfs.

    I might have cropped up to the shadow of the powerline so it starts in the bottom right corner. Good sharpness and plemnty of breathing space right around the quaint old wooden church. Tfs.

    Eye-catching weather scene, overall dark grey tones, dramatic upsweep of pressure to the cloud ceiling. One can feel the storm coming and see the wind/cloud patterns.

    good job,
    Cheers,

    PS: We did not climb Utah's Half Dome. I believe in total size it is smaller than Yosemite's.
