    Hi Dale
    we missed eachother by only a few months, I recently returned from Portugal as well, and spent a day or two in Lagos.

    For me, it was the END of my trip and all i wanted to do was relax - so one of my regrets was NOT visiting the historic OLD town you mentioned.

    I remember this view though :)
    I like the addition of the tiny sailboat on the far left, and the overall warmth of the scene is attractive. good color splashes as well cheers

    Hi Christiane
    oh yes, we can clearly see the stretched out perspective of the lens here. I knew this was an extreme wide angle.

    I like seeing the newer building on the far left in contrast to the OLD town style. I recall all of these :)
    fun view with the elongated look. cheers

    Hi Bev
    i want to know how they can build buildings back in that time period, and they're still standing today! how is that possible! I don't understand it

    and yes, the pebbles are outstanding, is that a neat feature or what! I wonder who's job it was to get the pebbles...."John, we need more pebbles, go back again" hahaha

    looks like the roof is in need of repair, but thats ok, such a wonderful subject for TE and you captured it so well in this light and cloud coverage. love it
    cheers

    Hi Malgo,
    Beautiful, carefully designed glass roof. Blue sky gives very nice backlight to it. Only the workshop reveal how big this structure really is! You did good job with this careful symmetric framing.

    Hi Rob,
    A well picked detail view of ropes holding those famous sails in their place. Strong perspective. Clear white and blue colours give lovely maritime feeling.

    Hi Takero,
    Very nice to see a fish eye lens shot for a while. The pose of this lovely dancer fits perfectly. She is very butterfly like with yellow 'wings' spread and legs almost disappearing to ground.

    Hello Angel,
    By chance I came across this older picture.
    A beautiful bay with a strong and pretty colour contrast between the golden brown tones of the beach & the cliffs and the blue colour of the sea & the sky.
    Not a crowded beach, that's great!
    Best regards, Paul

    A wonderful beach view showing both people enjoying the sunshine and this sheltered beach well. Almost square framing fits perfectly.

    Hello Danos,
    Mostar is very picturesque and the old bridge looks wonderful. But so does this view!
    Beautiful houses, a mosque and minarets between the river, a lot of greenery and the arid mountain slopes further away.
    Pretty light and colours. A wonderful panorama well composed.
    Best regards, Paul

    Hello Dale,
    The little bit of the Algarve coastline we see here looks magnificent.
    Small cozy beaches partly hidden by rocks and cliffs, that's wonderful.
    Excellently composed picture, attractive colours, a nice area for hiking, taking pictures and go for a swim of course.

    Hello Gert,
    Difficult question written on the wall ...
    At the house beyond, I doubt if it are beautiful murals are it's simply vandalism ... I need a closer look to judge.
    On Altered Image #2 the murals fit well the location with the children's playground. That is really nicely done.
    Best regards, Paul

    Impressive futuristic view of two Shinkansen trains connected together. Excellent close angle. Shiny red and green make a great combination.

    Salut Christiane,
    Et bien, vous avez bien mangé en Varsovie. Il fallait rester beaucoup plus longtemps pour goûter à toutes les soupes.
    Une façade très jolie et colorée, magnifiquement complétée par des fleurs et des plantes.
    Les reflets dans les fenêtres sont superbes.

    Bonjour Denis,

    This right angled composition uses all the elements in the scene to work together, guiding, and building up an impression of the location.
    The boats have a leader and the buildings have a leader!
    What a colourful and attractive scene they present!
    There is excellent clarity, too.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Costantino,
    I recognize this view from my visit of Ermoupoli.
    This town is one of the most spectacular places of the Cyclads, perhaps of all Greece. I really enjoyed my visit there.
    A beautiful labyrinth whereby the houses are always built on a higher level of the steep hill.
    Pretty soft tones of the facades.
    Best regards, Paul

    Hello, Paul!

    Really a modern one here, and its curves and reflections on it make the image very attractive! I wouldn't say it was a train if I saw it out of context... Very useful note about it too! Excellent job!

    Hello Piotr,
    A famous view of this monastery. Recently another picture of it has been uploaded by Costantino.
    This view is different and you have also put an accent on the surrounding coastal landscape.
    It is surely built on an extraordinary location. Could you visit the monastery ?
    A very attractive composition.

    Hello Dear Constantino,

    This is a cross between a blue hour photograph and a sunset!
    The top half of your photograph shows a fine, upwards view of the clock tower, set against the blue sky, whereas the bottom half shows a fiery sunset, almost mimicking flames and smoke.
    It is a very unusual and well captured shot.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)
