    Hi Aleksander,

    The distance between the beach and the horizon is giving depth to the composition. The presenc eof the couple is animating the scene. The point of view is showing the details of the boats. Have a nice day.

    HI Maciej,

    the path is leading my eye toward the arch or gate. The point of view is showing the details of the building. The light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice dya.

    Hi Silvio,

    The tree is helping to frame the castle. The point of view is showing the details of the castle. The good luminosity is giving nice tints to the colors. Have a nice day.

    Hi Malgo
    loved this city, wish i could have spent more time there.

    even though the lighting in the upper sky is harsh, there's still lots to like about the middle portion and lower portion.

    love the architecture and the overall look of the city, and the colors are excellent too.

    So when are you off to Lofoten?
    cheers

    Hi Stephen
    its hard to imagine the history here, seems like it goes on forever.

    nice to see the little glimpse of water in the bg, but where are all the people gone, nobody sitting down outside for a bite to eat?

    fun to see the types of architecture and balconies used too. nice shot
    cheers

    Hi Bev
    its great when an informative note is added to the photo!

    love the info about the fingers being removed, ouch!
    i never knew that, but now that i think about it, its not surprising is it.

    Imagine traveling back in time and showing these guys a machine gun!!!!

    If you had told me i'd be going to a medieval mock up, i'd probably not be too thrilled, but it actually sounds interesting.

    excellent photo to accompany the theme, i wouldn't want to change anything

    Hi Nicolas
    looks like somebody has lost their lid :)

    at least the little flowers in the grass adds a little bit of charm, and it also softens up the image more too.

    interesting subject, one that we don't see much of at all.

    Hi Serge
    wow, this is a scene from NYC we don't see very often is it.

    actually, its taken from New Jersey.
    looks great!

    makes me think there are beautiful scenes of Manhattan from any point in the surrounding burroughs.
    great shot in this soft light

    Hi Gert
    sorry to hear that you had alot of not-so-attractive weather, thats always a bummer on holidays.

    and as for the people, i personally dont' think they ruined your shot at all - and i'm surprised to hear you say you were a bit disappointed they entered your scene.

    in the bg there's an interesting collection of architecture and colors, that i like for sure.

    alot of activity going on here, nice shot
    cheers

    Hi Ike
    i always enjoy seeing plane photos, its a subject that i wish I took more photos of.

    at a shutter speed of 1/2000, you pretty much guarenteed yourself of a clear subject.

    and its nice to be able to see some of the undercarriage too. excellent exposure and lighting.

    excellent shot, its easy to see why many people have been enjoying this one.

    the yellows and greens go so well together, and of course including the child adds so much too.

    Hi Serghei
    I'm surprised more people do not venture off into the subways with their cameras, there are lots of great photos to be had down here.

    fun shot here with the forms and all that geometry going on, good depth too.

    cool post

    Hi Eleu
    I'm not sure if this plane fits in the beautiful category or not - probably not.

    but for sure the MiG has a history of its own.

    the plane doesn't even look 'complete' - as if they forgot portions of it from the factory :)

    another great looking subject in the air and now in your gallery

    Hi Mesut
    this looks so much like Vancouver, thats what i thought of right away.

    looks like a warm clear day, lots of bright sunlight, and the addition of the water in the bg caps it all off.

    love the sailboats too, this is like being home for me.
    nice shot

    Hi Aleksander
    if we take the time to fully investigate the subjects in the window, its actually quite fun.

    and of course the colors we see are very common in Poland too, very bright and red/orange on the buildings.

    fun shot, a dazzling visual display

    Hi Costantino
    love the subject!
    I have never really photographed a large Tall ship like this, have you ever been on one?
    that would be a great experience too.

    good to have the tiny sailboats on the right for scale. lucky buggers!

    have a great weekend

    Hi Jean Claude
    thats pretty funny actually....to be celebrating photo #2501 :) glad to see you recognized you missed 2500 though!

    I always enjoy viewing your posts, so lets hope you show us another 2501

    clearly, its the wrap around effect, and the visual perception up on top where there's a dip in the dome, those are the key features.

    and we don't see this color very often either, nice shot

    Hi Chris
    I really like these styles of photos, where we have 2 pieces of architecture that are facing off against each other. Best of all, is that they're angled toward each other as well, as if they're talking or communicating.

    the light is clearly brigher on the left side of the frame, but it also has a better contrast with the blue sky too.

    elegant architecture, looks great in this color combination.

    cheers

    Hi Carlo
    its always nice to see these old crusted buildings!
    hard to beat it right?
    but overall, looks like its been maintained quite well.
    its always good to show a little of the surrounding architecture too, like the homes on the bottom left, just for contrast and comparison.

    excellent subject to investigate

    Hi Jean
    yeah, sometimes you want to be near the crowds, sometimes you want to get away from the crowds.
    Totally understandable.

    for me, the trees are the main focal points, they add alot with their ragged arms reaching up into the sky.
    very attractive lighting and exposure settings overall as well, I wouldn't want to change anything to the set up.

    cheers
