    Hi Ney,
    what a beautiful place, from what you mention it is the sample place which you have showed here before. I memorize the name of this place already. It is quite picturesque. Nice composition with the lovely clouds hanging above the mountains.
    Excellent work!!

    Hi Craig,
    beautiful ladies not only seem to show up where you are but some of them even stalk you. I guess it is a dream of every man... in your case it is a reality. May be she was waiting for you to stay alone for a moment but Tosca must have watched you tightly.
    The girl does have a wonderfully colorful clothes, other of her colleagues do not -I wonder what does it mean? Is she some sort of princess?
    Great portrait!

    Hi Takero,
    beautiful triple portrait in the flowers. There is so much color here both thanks to the irises and the stylish clothes of the ladies.

    Bonjour Didi,
    I cannot believe that such a simple compositions works out so impressive! The flowers add a wonderful touch here, and the swan is captured with an incredibly graceful pose, plus the reflection seems so vivid as well.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Abmdsudi,
    this is breath taking! I like the silhouette of this beautiful structure set against the romantic sky.
    The highlight here for me is the regular shape of the setting sun. Fantastic exposition so well balanced. The bird adds a mysterious touch as if it was a scary palace of a maharaja as in the Indiana Jones movie.
    Excellent work!

    Czesc Maciej,
    jak zupelnie inaczej wyglada to samo miejsce sfotografowane za dnia i podczas blue hour. Nie musze mowic ktore robi wieksze wrazenie. Fajnie jest mieszkac w ciekawym miejscu ktore ma cos do sfootgrafowania wieczorna godzina. Musze przyznac ze mialem przez pol zycia szczescie ale ostatnio mi nie dopisuje.
    Warszawa wydaje sie miec mnostwo ciekawych obiektow dobrze podswietlonych noca.
    Jeszcze chyba nie widzialem zdjecia Palacu Lazienkowskiego o blue hour.
    Zastanawia mnie troche dlaczego w odbiciu niebo jest czarne.
    Piekna praca!

    Czesc Krzysztof,
    Twoj reportaz z Bayreuth, miedzy innymi to zdjecie przypomina mi znowu ze w Niemczech kazde male miasteczko moze zawierac interesujace skarby, wszystko jest czyste i zadbane i po prostu warto jechac do sasiedniej wioski zeby ja zaobaczyc i dac sie zaskoczyc. Niestety jak juz wspominalem nie jest tak w Anglii. Moze dlatego ze tu przeciaz dotad panuje monarchia a wiec pieniadze byly trzymane w jednych rekach, podczas gdy Niemcy to zwykle bylo mnostwo malych niezaleznych ksiastewek i pieniadze byly bardziej rozporowadzone.
    Przyjemna uliczka, ladna architektura, dobrze zadbane. Swietne zywe kolory.
    Pozdrawiam serdecznie,

    Hi Gert,
    I like those huge clocs, they are very decorative. Probably not very practical though. I have seen one of those in Lubeck.
    I have laughed reading your self criticsm and how surprised you were that Swedes did not steal the clock :)
    By the way I spent my day yesterday at IKEA :)
    I did not steal anything -just the opposite I felt like I left too much money over there.

    I started to appreciate people in the photos, mainly when I looked at your older shots. People seem sodifferent with different clothes and cars.
    What seems normal and average in this phot may seem funny 20 years from now.

    Very well done!

    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.

    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!
