    Hi Mikio
    Lovely soft muted autumn colours and light, the low viewpoint takes the eyes to the backdrop and human interest. The attractive building and foreground fallen leaves add some interest and element into the shot with green adds bit of spark as effective contrasting colours. A shot evoking a sense of stillness and peace. Wonderful well balanced composition nicely taken, Congrats
    Best regards

    Hi Ike
    there have been many new photos of Strasbourg on TE lately, and alot of them have shown the not-so-touristy side of the city...thats a good thing too.

    Its opening up the city into newer views, just like this one.

    I take it those towers were once used as defense positions with gunners or look-out posts.

    interesting shot of the town, cheers

    Hey Jason
    I know you're away for a week or so but i still wanted to comment on this one.

    I guess women could say the same thing about men...what is it with our obsession about cars (not every guy though). I fit in that category - i love cars. If i won the lottery i'd need a 10 car garage just to fit the new cars i'm gonna buy :)

    my theory about 'no photos please' actually translated into english means - 'please take as many photos as you like' lol

    don't you love those old comic book styles, with the large red dots for the skin...thats so classic.
    Fun shot here, perfect!

    take it easy, don't work to hard.
    cheers

    Hi Christiane
    Happy Easter :)

    this is one of those scenes that could be photographed all over the world, but it certainly doesn't take away from the scene itself.

    love how the water is so green in the reflections too.
    excellent contrast with the brown tree trunks.
    enjoy your day

    Hi Rosemary
    for obvious reasons this photo jumped out at me on your gallery page, can you assume why? lol

    its not too often we get to be splashed in the face with bright vivid orange colors!

    the distortion effect of the stars reminds me of how the super wide angle does the same.

    and oh my, Tosca would love to visit this place - she's a foodie :)

    fun photo, i'll have to remember this place when we eventually travel here.

    Hi Malgo
    yes, Happy Easter to you aswell.
    I forgot to post an Easter themed photo :(

    now this is the type of subject that i really really enjoy. lots of history, lots of grunge and who can resist the classic cliff-edge type of view!

    Imagine this place in its prime, must have been amazing to walk around here.

    sweet shot, wouldn't change anything.

    Hi Romano
    ah..some modern architecture!
    nice to see this for a change in Rome :)

    for obvious reasons, i like the concrete and glass reflection contrast, it works well.
    it also adds a bit of spice to the scene.

    the concrete jungle is taking over the classic style, haha.
    excellent color contrasts.

    happy easter is right!
    I forgot to upload a photo with that theme...oops :)

    your theme here is spot on, wouldn't change a thing.

    Hi Gosia
    I'll have to find out where this lookout point is.
    I'll be here in about 1 month from now.
    lots of purple and blues in this one!
    love the yellow inbetween the building blocks of the city.
    excellent use of the F18 to create the star effect too.
    see you around

    Hi Silvio
    this time its more of a smokey type of feeling and atmsophere.
    if we look very closely, we can see people walking around, don't see any cars though.
    great to see how the entire town is one solid color.
    another terrific viewpoint.

    I really need to visit PEI, i'll get there one day.
    if you took away the water in the bg, it could easily pass for the Canadian Praires.
    lots of wide open space, with a wide open feel.

    Hi Serghei
    a very suitable post for this time of the year, I guess I forgot about that! opps!

    I really like how you shot this on a little bit of a side angle, creates more depth this way i think.
    and the colors give a spark to the otherwise white/grey looking stone.
    fine post

    so i take it you're back home now?

    Hi Daniel
    good information there.
    and you're totally correct, getting lost in these places is almost half the fun because you will surely bump into something you normally wouldn't have had.
    that large door on the left is looking pretty shabby, but that all part of the charm too.
    fine post.

    Hi Patrick
    Lovely the way she is 'posed' indicating her jovial mood, the radiant expression and eye interaction. It's strong, dignified and beautifully composed shot
    with vibrant colour of the head cover giving the extra oomph. The picture certainly makes her real proud. Great portrait & your shot is just marvelous.
    Warm regards

    Hi Klaudio
    I'm a big fan of these large Murals, they really do make a strong visual impact don't they.
    this lady is staring me down.
    she blends in well with the brick, not the usual vibrant colors we see so its a bit different that way.
    cool post

    Hello Mike

    And very nice this is too, in the postcardy way you describe, which is absolutely not your normal style! I see this is a crop: top or bottom removed, or a bit of each? And apart from darkening the sky a tad, I'm trying to work out what PP you've done here. Somehow it manages to look a bit painterly... But pleasant, and brings back pleasant memories.

    Regards

    Hi Eleu
    Looks like the toys got stuck up the tower as a result of your keen eye and fractions of a second fast shutter speed. You have successfully frozen the fast action to the best of your ability and I can fully share your sentiment as described in your notes, It's indeed diff and your fine effort is applauded, Congrats.

    Hello György

    I don't know how I missed this when you first posted it. The photograph aptly captures the forbidding and infinitely tragic nature of the memorial. Yet the lad is heading out of the dark claustrophobic prison into the liberating light. A photograph of symbolic resonance. Thank you.
