    Hello Cristina

    Well, today's bank holiday, so I suppose this is your last posting for a while as you'll be back to work tomorrow. I don't suppose it will help your mood if I tell you I'll be sailing in the Adriatic for the next two weeks! As to your photograph: I suspect it's typical of your style that you search out the less visited places. I confess I don't know the Fondation Louis Vuitton, but you make it look really interesting. The immediate impact comes from your use of the Dutch tilt, which certainly adds extra dynamism. I hardly ever use the technique myself, but you've convinced me to add it to my repertoire. The figures are so important here. Imagine the shot without them! But I'm disappointed that it's been in the public domain for several hours now and no-one else has seen fit to post a comment. I think since the site had its major problems a couple of months ago, a lot of people have left, or at least stopped posting for the time being: there seems to be generally less activity here than before. So don't be too despondent (or as I said before, try posting some garishly coloured stuff. Works for me!)

    Kind regards

    Will

    Hello Korkut

    A lady posing for you perhaps? Or is this serendipity? Either way it makes an arresting and dramatic image. The eyes have it! But it's the disjuncture of scale that is the photograph's raison d'être. Another cracker.

    Hello Lisa

    If I didn't know you better, I'd swear this was over-saturated in P'shop! But I don't think you'd stoop to that, and although I've not been to WA, I've seen enough of the outback to know that the colours can certainly sing. Around the Corner Country, the earth is redder than this, but still in-your-face technicolour. Of course the other crucial aspect of this photograph is the impeccable thirdsy composition. Like the sound of the lobster, but sad that you felt you had to miss the lunar eclipse.

    Regards

    Hi Angel
    you were able to get yourself a good photo even in some very harsh lighting conditions, the final result is something i'm sure you're happy with.

    your scene has a lot of depth, textures and I like the water in the fg as your lead in.
    thanks for this one

    Hi Brenda
    well, It certainly looks like spring has sprung in NYC!
    glad to see the people walking around in shorts and t shirts.

    Did you know this was here or did you just happen to come across it during your walks?

    Its pretty unique for sure, never seen one like it.
    You must have been thinking...man, I can put this on TE! haha

    Really like the ws photos too.
    I think the art actually helped to buffer the brightly lit sky, looks great to me.
    fun and interesting downtown shot!

    cheers

    Hi Gigi
    as much as I love the abstract type of architecture shot, these classic ones have a place in my heart as well.

    Never get tired of them.
    its a postcard for sure, but hey, I LOVE postcards!

    Its funny to see the Leaning Tower trying to catch our attention in the bg - like the little brother sneaking over the older brothers shoulder in a photo :)

    love this one

    Hi Daniel
    umm....yeah, I think I'll be walking those steps as well. talk about having an ornate staircase/Church combination!

    could they make this any more elaborate or ornate, holy moly.

    that is one pretty cool looking church tower and façade.

    you had a perfect day for photo taking too, everything looks bright and the sky almost steals the show.
    excellent upwards pov too.

    I'll be posting another Lofoten shot tomorrow or the next day
    Cheers

    Hi Klaudio
    well, you have certainly taught me something new today!

    I've never heard of this before, its an interesting read and i'll look forward to viewing your upcoming shots too.

    as for the photo, there's an clear star of the scene, and you know its the girl in the white and red dress.

    in the bg there look to be a lot of tourists.
    a clear and bright image, nice combo of picture and note

    Hello Claude

    The lone "gladiator" certainly makes this photograph even more special. It's an excellent monochrome conversion, with a full range of tones (too many seem to favour a lighter overall look; you and I prefer lower key!). I love the lines of the arena forcing our eyes to the light centre, where all the action once took place. The sky too reminds me of the days of red filters...

    Kind regards

    Will

    Now this is a super cute and funny looking post!
    How does this NOT grab our attention from the gallery page!
    Its honestly the type of photo that puts a smile on everyones face, and it brings a momentary break from the stress of today :)
    Fun photo with super colors and subject.

    Hi Ney
    Another fine piece of elegance from your native homeland.
    If you look closely you'll see many smaller details that pack alot of visual punch.
    And the tall vertical upwards pov works well to initially draw us into your scene.
    Fine exposure even in the under parts too.
    Nice post
    Cheers

    Hi Omid
    So these people are all going down to see the Geyser?
    There are so many people, even way into the depths of the scene.

    Really like the subject and how you once again whow us something new and different from Iran.
    When i think about Iran, i do not think about Geysers :)
    Wonderful TE post.

    Hi Ryszard
    oh yes, I see you loud and clear.

    Easy to like this one.
    this is a famous style of composition that we often see from Poland.

    I guess you could have chosen to leave out the sky or put it in...having it in helps with the overall sense of what we're looking at - making it less abstract.

    excellent color combinations and sharpness.
    Cheers

    Hi Carlo
    so what is behind door #1? haha
    I'm hoping its a good gift, perhaps a new camera?

    I wonder if that green on the door is moss or algae, I think it is...i don't think it's paint!

    wonderful textures, wonderful old subject thats falling apart but trying to hang on.
    nice one

    Hi Silvio
    wow...easy to see why many TE members have already been enjoying this one.

    first of all, those clouds are outstanding, I wish I could have those in all of my photos :)

    and I like seeing the large mountain in the bg with the textures running down the hills.

    the town and their rooftops just put it over the top.
    splendid shot for many reasons

    wow, those are some beautiful tall trees!
    seeing those trees, the green hills, and the grey brooding skyline almost make me forget about the ancient ruins in the fg.

    Jama Mashid was one of my favorite places we visited in ALL of India!

    such a beautiful Mosque.

    Hi Nicolas
    its not too often we get to see the fisherman in his boat moving away from us like this, taken from behind.

    I like that you left out the skyline, focusing in on just the marina-type subjects.
    there's nothing in the frame to disturb the scene.

    funny looking yellow color on the water too.
    nice shot
    cheers
