    Hi Justinas
    Amazing landscape! Beautiful colours and well controlled balanced exposure (did you use filters or post processing?).
    Even the flower in the bottom left is perfectly placed in the frame.

    Hi Craig
    You couldn't choose a better subject to show everyday life in that city! Both the building and the car are very old but there is a pronounced contrast between the crumbling fašade and the shining red paint of the vehicle.
    Nice one, thanks for sharing!

    I like this one even more! The diagonal composition works really well to convey motion and speed.

    Hi Brian
    This is very impressive. I like your idea to concentrate on details, you wouldn't be able to see that teddy bear if the airplane was just a dot in the blue sky. I also like the way you conveyed movement here.

    Trzy to bardzo dobra liczba do takich ulicznych portretow. Panowie swietnie pozuja. :-) Zlapalas bardzo dobry moment, kiedy kubeczek wedruje do ust, ale zatrzymuje sie na chwile, zeby ujac ten gest na zdjeciu.

    Super praca! Uwielbiam takie swiatlo przebijajace sie przez delikatna mgielke. Do tego jeszcze te jesienne liscie... Swietna kompozycja zdominowana przez linie pionowe i przekatne - cienie na ulicy stanowia jakby przedluzenie slonecznych promieni. Naprawde bardzo mi sie podoba.

    Hi Will
    If there is any reason for you to apologise it would be for not posting MORE of these fantastic b&w photos!
    The mood of the place very well conveyed and explained well in the note. I really like the way the foreground dominates the composition with its strong pattern and old times feel.
    Have a nice day

    Wlasnie obejrzalam twoje zdjecia z Kapadocji. Bardzo ladne. Tutaj swiatlo w polaczeniu z ciemnym niebem tworzy niepowtarzalna atmosfere.
    Te "grzyby" to chyba najciekawsze formy skalne w tym rejonie. Ja zrobilam kilka ich zdjec niedaleko miasta Urgup.

    Hi Gert
    Having taken a break from TE for 3 weeks I seem to be following your journey through Afganistan in a wrong direction. But it's still a pleasure to look at these photos. You mentioned your trip in 2001 and that Balkh looked unchanged since 1973. How about people in the street? Where they still wearing mostly traditional clothes? I suppose so considering that the country was largely under Taliban rule but is it only a stereotype?
    Btw, I also have a lot of technical problems while uploading to TE. The colours are almost always different than on my screen and other websites.

    Very colourful, eye-catching image. By filling the frame with the subject you created an almost abstract composition.

    Cudowne nocne zdjecie! Kolorowe paski-odbicia w wodzie tworza ciekawy efekt, a zolto-pomaranczowy odcien swiatel miasta bardzo dobrze prezentuje sie z resztkami niebiekiego nieba. Dobry pomysl, zeby ujac fontanne, ktora dodaje kompozycji rownowagi.

    Unusual and very creative image of this beautiful place. The low cloud creates the mood of this photo and monochromatic presentation focuses on the shapes presented in the photo.

    Hi Brian
    Truly beautiful black and white work showing this amazing architecture at its best.
    I like your idea! Maybe not completely without rain (who's gonna water my garden...) but rain only during the night and during the day changing thick grey clouds into photogenic white ones... Wotcha think?? ;-))
    Have a nice Sunday

    Hi Craig
    Still going through your excellent black hour photos you posted recently!
    For me the Colosseum had a similar effect - I found it trully majestic and bigger than I had imagined.
    For me the other iconic subjects that affected me in a similar way when I saw them first time were:
    Tower Bridge and Big Ben, London
    Jokulsarlon lagoon, Iceland
    Mountain view in Elgol, Scotland
    Piazza dei Miracoli, Pisa
    Golden Pavilion, Kyoto
    Malbork Castle, Poland
    Samarkand Registan, Uzbekistan
    Corsica emerging from the sea on the horizon
    Paro airport, Bhutan (this is not "iconic" but had the same effect on me).
    And so much so that I still remember the way those places made me feel and can make this list!
    Have a lovely Sunday
    Kasia
