    Ciao Luciano,
    We are neighbours today!

    Great illustration to the ice-land trip!
    Fantastic colors. The color of the sky is amazing and contrasts nicely with the color of the ice. I had a chance to see the land of ice in Patagonia. I suppose the effect is quite similar. But I have yet to go to visit Iceland. I am looking forward to seeing your reportage!
    Excellent start!

    Hi Sergio,
    this is so beautiful. The architecture very impressive anyway but you have also captured in in a very creative way focusing exclusively on the reflection. Nice that you have decided to include the people sitting near the pond that has anchored the scene in the reality. You had a fantastic light over there and you made the great use of it.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Roland,
    this is so very impressive interior! I like the rich paintings. Orthodox churches have quite unique style with the icons being so particular full of symbols.
    Fantastic mood captured here with dimmed light. Walking people add some life to the scene. I like very much this play of the light and shadow, colors and reflections.
    Extraordinary! Beautiful!

    Hi Barnabas,
    never enough of this spectacular view!!!
    I had the pleasure to visit it many years ago but without a camera in pre-digital times anyway. I feel like I have to go there to take picture exactly like this one.
    This is so perfect! I like the POV, across the river from a slightly asymmetric angle, The light was lovely with a great contrast which emphasizes the beauty of the architecture and creates a feeling of depth. The color of the river is quite extraordinary, plus having the boats there allows to better imagine the scale of this place.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Ian,
    wow, this is really an impressive waterfall capture! I am so bad with waterfalls: it is an art -and you did a fantastic job here! The long time exposure, so well balanced exposure... Amazing effect of moving water and crispy sharp and feeling wet rocks sandwiching the falls.
    Excellent work!!

    Hi John,
    wow, this is you?
    I would never recognize you from this photo! I suppose the moderators will not believe this either and may be they will keep it here. Also: nobody really reads the notes anyway :)
    Fantastic photograph, the person in it adds a lovely touch especially with the backpack. It does feel very adventurous. Amazing atmosphere, it reminds me the Patagonian landscapes.
    Spectacular!
    I cannot believe that the photo is so old! My photos from before 2000 or just after -they are so bad! but the other thing is I usually used quite a cheap equipment and films.
    This photo is older than I am :)

    What a remarkable trip both in this photo and your journey over 10 years on TE. In fact recently emka was celebrating her 9th birthday and Serghei his 10th!
    So it seems many people joined at the same time +- 1 year :)

    Excellent photograph of highest quality and so much sentimentally charged,

    Isn't Madagascar even further? And wild as well I suppose?

    Hi Daniel,
    lovely night photo. Ljubljana is on my list too but now with the family I must stay near the beach, and also being recently in this area I will probably select another place for next year as well. Looking at my map on TE I see that that I miss a lot of Balkan countries in Europe (including Romania) and so I hope to be able to go there someday.
    I like the compo here, the houses in the distance look quite elegant as well.
    Have a great weekend,

    Hi Serghei,
    you have a great luck for demonstrations don't you :)
    I like the flags and banners here with the inscriptions in Japanese -of course we have no idea what it is about :)
    Very colorful and eye catching!

    Congratulations on your anniversary. Recently also emka had 9th birthday here and I reached 600th photo!
    Let's hope this site survives a little longer yet so that we can celebrate the next anniversaries.
    Without this site I would never meet you or Malgo.
    This is a special place. I am glad that you stay around :)

    Hi Costantino,
    what a lovely spot. The houses are pleasantly hidden between the vegetation and so near to the sea.
    Nice capture across the water which provides vivid reflection in the foreground.
    Very charming scene,

    Hi Ike,
    this is an amazing view!
    Yes the quality is not optimal but I wouldn't expect anything better from a bus. Nevertheless the scenery is so spectacular that it was definitely worth to share it!
    I didn't go that way, which I regret. Well in general having more time over there would be great.
    I like this POV although I see that you have a higher one as well. The pointy trees make a lovely decoration too.
    Very encouraging to go there again!
    Have a great weekend,

    Hi Viviane,
    no photos from your recent trip yet?
    It was so nice to meet you in person!
    I am looking forward to watching your reportage here :)

    Nice perspective here, the architecture is very attractive, great geometry too.
    Very well seen and captured!

    Hi Chris,
    wonderful sky with so many interesting patterns and colors!
    The boats on the water are quite challenging with long time exposure because they move :) But we see I believe that the cranes on the horizon are crispy sharp and so the boat must have been moving.
    Very attractive presentation from Salonika.

    Hi Paul,
    very colorful impression from Italy, on top of that you have selected an Italian car :)
    I like the pleasant eye catching saturation. The reflection made a lovely distortion.

    Hola Luis,
    beautiful architecture. I really wanted to visit Sibenik but in the end I had to skip it. Next time :) I wanted to see its unique cathedral which I know from photos only.
    Lovely capture of less known aspect but so attractive and clearly demonstrating how elegant this town is. Very encouraging to visit!!

    Hi Abmdsudi,
    lovely street shot straight from the kitchen :)
    The meat looks very tasty from here, the smoke leaves no doubt that it is still warm :)
    Fantastic capture of people at work, they are so focused and you have also captured their quick movements.
    Excellent!

    Hi Chris,
    wow, this is so beautiful! I like very much the charming town far in the distance -so elegant with white houses! The colors are amazing, so well polarized, so clear!
    The boat making the turn in the foreground is of course like the icing on the cake. The curve is exactly where it should be. Very impressive! Wonderful!

    Hi Pavle,
    interesting idea, I usually hide my camera in the cupboard when I see the rain outside. You have well used the opportunity to create something interesting. I like how clearly we see that it rains, it is actually very difficult to capture falling rain in the photo, I always fail to make it right.
    Your photo encourages me to experiment with rain again. In England I have plenty of occasions for that :)

    so simple and yet very impressive composition! You have perfectly used this reflection, it is so vivid and colorful. The pales in the water are arranged in a lovely diagonal and the tree branch adds another complementary line here.

    Czesc Malgorzata,
    ze wstydem musze przyznac ze na wieze nie poszedlem... Teraz oczywiscie zaluje :) Dawniej nie przepuscilem zadnemu widokowi z gory teraz najczesciej takie rzeczy odkladam... owszem w Bosni wciagnalem Nadie na gore minaretu :) Wjechania na wieze Eiffela troche zaluje -za dlugo trwalo czekanie jak dla dziecka...
    Bardzo ciekawy fragment tutaj wybralas. Interesujace elementy. Ladny jest ten naturalny kawalek w oddali, sliczny fragment fasady w glebi, no i czerwona dachowka taka przyjemnie wypolerowana. Wydaje mi sie jednak ze jakos wybralbym zblizenie obcinajac troche nieba -skupilbym sie na centrum fotografii, no ale to kwestia gustu.
    Na pewno jesli tam jeszcze kiedys trafie to bede chcial wyjsc na wieze :)
    Pozdrawiam serdecznie,
    M
