    Hello Angel,
    Wonderful small houses and a magnificent fortress. The roofs and the lampposts give the view fine depth, and the sky has just enough light clouds to give the photo further liveliness. As always in your photos the colours are extremely fine and the composition is beautiful and well balanced.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Satya,
    Yes, it's a bit similar but with a slight change of perspective, putting the building to the left into the focus. So many Indian towns are full of these remarkable old style houses, sometimes crumbling from age. I think any view from Trichy would look nice as long as the Rockfort is included somewhere in the background.

    Hello Miro,
    In spite of the enormous growth of Kathmandu, Durbar Square seems to be just the same as decades ago. But even here there is a great difference. Paying an entrance fee to a public place sounds too me quite outrageous. It would have been impossible 40 years ago, when most tourists were students and hippies with little money. There were rather few well off middle class visitors in those days. Anyway, the pigeons, buildings and the colorful saleswomen look the same. I like the small child in the shady corner at the top, easily overlooked because of the brighter light and colours in the central area.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Khoa,
    This is a well taken photo from perfect point of view. I like the vertical shape which seems to underscore the movement of the bikes. The grey paving creates a fine backdrop to the colorful cyclists and their helmets.

    Hello Malgo,
    I am pleased to see that you have fulfilled yet another dream. Forces of nature such as these surely can't leave anyone indifferent. It's a majestic sight and interesting to see the different colours, depending I guess on the levels of dirt in different sections of the river. It's well composed with the lower part obscured by the clouds of humidity and the "normal" clouds hanging above.
    Kind regards,

    Hi Ana
    An interesting notes and a stunning historic location in which to capture this structures making me looking deep inside. The aged material of the architecture and their cracking details are just wonderful that speak volumes of a time gone by and you have done a wonderful work capturing it. The warm tone, shades and shadows has accentuated the feel of depth giving us some indication of the scale as the same time. As usual the brightness is subtle. Well done shot and tfs.

    Hello Gert - I have just followed the link to this shot from Mariusz' recent upload. I was here in this very spot in September '14 and took a snap of my son and his partner on the same (possibly) bench! It's such fun to see this and to know that some places continue to have appeal. Little seems to have changed. A pleasure to see! A very good quality scan too considering the age.

    Warm regards

    Hello Mariusz - You comment on the light but it is loads better than the dull wet day in September when I visited with my son. There is a lovely warmth to the scene imparted by the sunlight and colours. The building in the FG with the orange brickwork looks like the place we enjoyed a cup of tea. A lovely PC view, next time I visit I hope it looks more like this!

    Warm regards

    A pleasing well exposed indoor shot and great to have a greenhouse to play in with this fresh looking enclosed scene full of lovely green tropical palm. It's creatively shot from such very low viewpoint unfolding its beauty to the very best. Well done capture, Congrats

    Hello Manuel - having visited Italy for the first time last year I find that I 'connect' with photographs depicting the country better now than before. This is so typical and brings back a host of memories. Every corner one turns there is something to delight the eyes... this is such a scene.

    Beautiful architectural shot, terrific symmetry with great feel of depth and the effect of light & shadows worked best here! The repeating lines and geometry are particularly good really pulling the eye into the image, Wonderful composition with so much to look at and this is a striking interior shot. Congrats, tfs

    The delicacy of the light and the simplicity of the colours make this a winning shot for me Silvio. I love the sky, it is softly coloured and well detailed forming a great back cloth to the church.

    Nicely done Silvio!

    Hello Nicou - I like this a lot. The FG with neat rows of vines and their supports and the geometric lines of the small cabin contrast so well with the natural 'randomness' of the forest. Simple and very lovely.

    Superb, like stepping into a time warp, an interesting narrow scene waiting to be explored that oozes local character and atmosphere and fascinating to see architecture in the raw illuminated by subtle warm tones, the play of shadow and blue sky creating a very a appealing in depth shot. Lovely how you have composed this and credit too to your seamless light control producing an impressive lens work, Congrats

    Hello Delphine,
    This is very neatly cropped and graphically attractive. Only some plants near the top break the near total conformity of the lines made by the balconies.This was very well made with a fine greyscale.

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    The precisely applied sharpness and the illumination similar to a spotlight makes this cargo vehicle very obvious, regardless of its far too heavy load. It makes me think of a stupid pop song from approximately 1960, called "Lopsided, overloaded and it wiggled when we rode it". It has its equivalent in the collective "bush taxis" of Asia and Africa taking twice as many passenger as the number of seats.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
