    Hi Danos
    A very peaceful & finely detailed coastal scape showing the real natural beauty with sense of isolation and interesting how the resort buildings on the slope blends in this natural setting and almost l camouflaged too. It's the stunning blue water that has really lifted the capture tenfold, and your exposure as always is flawlessly managed, clean and fresh looking spectacle with good sense of scale too. What a sight to behold, Congrats, TFS
    Best wishes

    Hi Neyvan
    A nice piece of architectural detail and good idea homing in on the huge dome rather than including the whole building. Love the clarity and its natural colours and always a pleasure to view,, Very well done shot. Congrats

    Hi Krzysztof
    now its a luxury hotel?
    I wonder how much the rooms are each night?

    the colors make a strong splash, great contrast subjects.

    pure elegance and richness :)

    Hi Gildas
    beauty of a photo!
    really quite stunning.
    these Autumn scenes are always so attractive and make me want to get out there and capture the same.

    really like the tree trunks in contrast to the bright colors

    Hi Pierre
    yes, I hear this little island is quite popular and you can get some excellent shots and views from here too.

    You must have taken this photo right when the SKYDOME was new, funny how only after 15+ years its now considered to be quite outdated and old!! yikes!

    and i bet if you took this photo TODAY from the exact some location, the skyline would have many more sky scrapers in it.

    fun shot, always nice to see Toronto like this
    cheers

    Hi Chris
    now THATS'S a castle!
    even by today's standards this is an amazing home...imagine how this place would dwarf every other home built back in the 15-1600's!

    nice to have the puffy clouds in the sky too, added for extra effect.

    i like the low pov too.
    looks great

    Howdy Bulent,

    Interesting view of the Rotorua Museum building, massive blend of half-timbered architecture with ornate embellishments. I missed visiting on my brief visit to Rotorua, so now must "Do overs"...
    And a bonus with your history background.

    Thanks for sharing,

    Interesting view of the basic gothic church Santa Maria in Campi, solid block rock walls and the adjoining tower with long arch windows. Obviously well made to survive the centuries.

    Howdy Karen,

    Fine action view of the surfer and the well formed wave, and the Channel Island looks closer here than Oxnard.
    In my youth Rincon was a primo surfing spot, and from your note it is good to know it still is.

    Howdy Craig,

    Always attractive for me, are forms of transportation, and your candid view of the Taksim Square electric trolley does it.
    This trolley appears narrow compared to many and probably been in service for many years. Then the people strolling along the high buildings lining the path.

    Another unique 'steps mural', interesting for the elongated wood dock covering the length, with a beach chair at the bottom and a cat next to the row boat.
    (Was the model attractive?)

    Attractive Helsinki scene of the flat ice field broken into natural pieces, with a pathway in the center and a human gazing down, while the path curves on into the distant horizon.
    A picturesque image created by Nature and your expertise.

    Another inviting view of Leros, the golden sunlight shining upon the waterfront architecture including the rock ancient buildings behind, and enhanced by the storm clouds above.

    Interesting Gubbio scene, a glimpse through the shadow arch of the gothic walls, arches and window shutters, along a stone block path.
    As shown, Italia has some many other artistic and historical towns to share beyond the major ones like Rome, Venice, and Florence, and probably much less crowded.
