    Hello Stephen,

    Excellent photo of this bridge and the colorful reflections in the water below. Something about blue hour shots that are more impressive than what might have been taken during the daylight hours.

    The church is a massive structure and unfortunately one cannot see much of it because of the darkness, but for me I would prefer the blue hour

    Fine Job. Have a good weekend. Roger

    Hello Gerrit,

    Looks like a pleasant place to visit. I like the close up of this musician with what appears some intensity, but sadness on his face. Interesting that there is some music there. Most places I have visited in recent years were devoid of that unless it was a show in a casino etc. Years ago it was common in Europe, but I am sure now it is too expensive.

    Great shot . Regards, Roger

    Hello Denis, Looks like you were quite high somewhere to capture this great shot of the water and the small structure down below. The white water in the blue ocean almost creates a mosaic presence. Really beautiful.

    I would assume the lonely house below is empty, but it must have been impressive in its earlier life. It looks small nestled into the greenery but I am sure it is a lot larger than what we see from your vantage point.

    Great Photo. Regards, Roger

    Hello Frank,

    For me I have always thought of graffiti as a nuisance, but this is very attractive and Impressive. I cannot read what it says but it is obviously something that the owner has decided to leave on rather than remove. Well composed and distinctly clear. Regards,

    Hello Mehrdad,

    This is a beautiful park and well captured by your photo. I like your composition with the tree in the foreground of the mosque. The statue is equally impressive. It is unusual in its color and certainly stands out to the viewer.

    Well Done. Regards, Roger

    Bonsoir Pierre,

    This is a huge rock formation and it really dominates the photo. Looks dramatic against the blue water. Moreover, I think the blue sky almost trumps the water for its contrast as well.

    Good work. Regards, Roger

    Hi Angshuman!
    Another fantastic shot from this region! I like it a lot,the sky is just magnificent and the composition is perfect - I really like the way you framed the colourful Buddha and also the monastery in background.

    Hello Craig,

    I am sure there is a lot of discussion here involving whether she was angry, but for me I find it a great shot. And I would label it "Surprise". The lady has an interesting attire and it is colorful, as I have noted in most photos from India the color was always there. Interesting about the paint or stain here as part of a festival or religious observation.

    I always thought of going to India, but now it is too far and too long of a flight for me. We are going to Alaska in July for ten days and will be up in British Columbia as well. Alaska is the only state I have never been in. I remember your colorful blue hour shots from, I believe Vancouver. Have a great weekend. Roger

    Hi Alfred!
    I've never been to Varanasi but the photos I've seen of this event make me think it must be really worth. Very good one here, the composition and the focus are great. The man looks so concentrated and there's so much atmosphere!

    Ciao Silvio,

    Wonderful arches with lighting to make them a bit mysterious. I like the blue hour moment here with the light in the far left corner still managing to illuminate the photo.

    This appears to be a very interesting and really old castle. Very nicely presented.

    Hi Eleu!
    This is a very good composition for sure and also different from most part of the photos of balloons. The balloon gave you a fantastic background for the silhouette of the man. Very well framed!

    These ones are a little different indeed! I like the little holes there. This must be an incredible place to visit - it must be simply great to enjoy the view in such place. Nice shot with nice colours!

    Hi Will!
    Much better this way than with lots of souvenir shops! It seems really well preserved and much like the old days, I suppose. This is the kind of places I really like to visit. So much to see here, so many interesting details. I like the composition a lot!

    Hello Nicolas,

    Huge and massive tower with a variety of bricks and mortar present. I like the trees and their blooming which promises good warm weather is on its way.

    Very elegant composition.

    Hello Malgo.

    I would say Huma Watcha for that place. Probably easier than to pronounce your last name. Ha ha.

    This looks like a beautiful place to visit. You are in high desert country but you have lots of cacti there and a lovely background for the picture with very heavy clouds darkening the red stone formations of the mountainside. I guess these are vendors looking to pick up a few shekels for their living. I am impressed with the cleanliness and absence of waste here. Looks very clean and prosperous.

    Greet Shot. Warmest Regards, Roger

    Hello Ana,

    This is a sweet and adoring photo of these two young ladies. The garments are absolutely beautiful with the accent on red but the hair dressing is as I remember the Thais from many years ago. The one is being helpful to her friend ever so delicately. I even am amazed at the fine jewelry that they are wearing.

    Great Post. Regards, Roger

    Hello Takero,

    Now I like this dimly lit photo as it brings out the blossoms very effectively, In fact I can almost smell them. You have used low light with a low ISO and brought us the magic of the flower. Excellent and creative.

    Well Done. Roger
