    Hi Ike,
    well captured animals in their natural environment. This place looks like a very pretty spot for long walks and some photo opportunities. The light which is warm and soft makes everything even more attractive. Good natural colors and well proportioned composition.
    Thanks for sharing and all the best

    Hello Romano,
    extraordinary picture and of very high quality. The choice of the format as well as the composition is very good in here. The bridge links the banks of the river at nice angle and leads an eye towards group of interesting architecture. The greenery at the bottom frames the image and the sky with some picturesque looking clouds gives very pretty background.
    I like the colors which have been nicely saturated yet staying natural as well as well managed light.
    Thanks for sharing and all the best

    Hello Jean,
    it is amazing how light can change the landscape. I can recognize this place from your previous post but it looks very much different from before and its character has changed as well. The pinkish sky against grey sea makes very subtle combination. One can almost feel the beginning of the day and the peace of the moment. Very well captured and with excellent quality.
    Thanks for sharing and all the best

    Hi Roger
    Creative ideas and fantastic looking close up well worth the crick in your neck - Lol. Seriously, far too few people bother to look up, me included even to first-floor level they don't know what they're missing. You have smart eyes! an excellent observation so nicely shot and the burst of sparkling chandelier standout with adequate details this also makes for an interesting abstract. It's so pleasantly exposed even the brightest spot is not blown up without hot spots, but i do feel bit more contrast and saturation are
    beneficial, Congrats

    Hi John
    Another of your great contribution, an elegant castle well shot as it helps to separate the bright earthy tones from the rest of scenic green surroundings which all so delicately registered in sublime light & shadows. Great timing, and the colors especially stand out brilliantly against peaceful setting. Exquisitely done! TFS

    Hi Gert
    An excellent record shot putting the emphasis on the ancient monument complex which is perfectly placed at the third forcing the eye to its features. Love the clarity and tone exposing the details throughout really well, while the colourful workers bring a vibrant spot breaking the muddy tones and regularity of the surroundings. Well done, Tfs

    Hi Dwaipayan,

    I can understand your relief, and I have been there up in the Himalaya hiking to the Everest Base Camp. And when it was all done and back to Katmandu, and it was hot and humid, but what a different feeling.

    Love this shot with the whole image in cold and white grayish and hte red stands out perfectly, the presence of the dog adds to the composition well too, poor thing got to stay up there while the tourists are gone to the warm places :)

    Hi Patrick
    A truly magical place I like this a lot, the stunning saffron color pulls all attention to the monks against the detail of the ancient architecture. The clarity and tonal contrast really add to the quality of this shot, loads to look at and really stands out to make this shot a real eye catcher. The tumbling stones work indeed as strong foreground and I think you are lucky enough to have been there and thks to your descriptive words. This is a gorgeous shot with timeless feel. Great works

    Hi Benny
    The crop takes me right into the corner, really emphasises the aged rustic walls and takes the left edge off centre which I find more pleasing & the very careful placement of the statue. These carry enough interest to make it an effective photograph as it conveys the local flavour full of matured colours. An interesting piece well shot, Congrats.

    Hi Diane
    An intrigung shot, great depth and colors with the eye catching structures grab attention as strong subject. The lighting could not be better that youve got a nice balance in the exposure which has kept a lot more detail throughout with good human presence. A fine shot, Congrats.
    I have one issue to highlight, noticed the 'fringe' magenta line due to light contra along the edge on right hand corner.

    Hi Federico
    It's a fine tilted shot to good effect that echoes the wonderful architectures seen from low view point and the use of wide angle lens has exaggerated the perspective with oodles of impact, enhanced by the strong contrasts to dark sky. A grand image well illuminated in warm light and exquisite detail and sharpness, Well done, Congrats

    Hi Denis
    It's a great seascape that you managed the exposure well and really brings out the colorful display of the scene. Love the perspective & viewpoint from low angle with the red boat leads and pointing towards the sea that works well with the concept. It's such a clean crisp image with excellent light contrast to deep grey sky, It makes for a superb capture!! Good work, TFS

    Hi Jan
    The splendour of low light shot that you have attained a very delicate exposure between brightest and darkest areas, credit to your exquisite lens work. A beautifully composed early day scene with the lined trees lead through the mist of an atmospheric morning as I can almost feel the chill and sense of quietness, You've have also captured the mood beautifully! Excellent depth and perspective taken from impressive view point full of soothing colours boosted by the warm glow. Congrats
