    Hi Nicolas
    A peaceful early morning and lovely touch of warm sun kissed peaks along with the streak of reddish cloud completes the total beauty. You usual exposure control is beyond reproach. Gorgeous shot, Congrats

    Hi Romano
    A successful mono shot with great feeeeling!! A pleasant looking street entertainer this gentleman it seems, and what a great character! something you can see in the lines of his face. But he looks a real musician to me the look on his determined eyes says that his heart and soul are in it and the contrast is effectively stronger with lots more punch which he deserves. This is not only a lovely capture of communication and energy but an impressive and expressive image too. Remarkable shot :)
    Play it again Sam!

    Hi Pavle
    A nice wintery image and decent composition as the foreground roofs lead for further scene - a joy to some a drudgery to others. It's all about seizing the moment even on a cold day when you feel like staying in bed, but snow does make for a wonderful scape. Exposure looks great near whites. Well done shot, Congrats

    Hi Dimitris
    A moody landscape benefited from small windows of reasonable weather, just how exciting the chalet and the backdorp can be but looks like you were in for a storm! Lovely capture and bags of drama in this - the menacing clouds really makes this shot as I feel the moodiness with glimpse of the tower adds that special touch. The image gives the impression of remoteness & height but it all leads towards the catchy red & yellow for good omen! Splendid shot

    Hi Beverley
    now THAT's a bridge!
    wow.
    the only thing that doesn't really belong in the scene are the new modern cars :)

    looks like the bridge could fall apart any second, but i guess its been up for hundreds of years right?

    love the stone look of it, same goes for the houses too.
    wonderful post

    Merry Christmas to you and your Family as well
    cheers

    Hi Gert
    You have very interesting portraits of the trio, nice children in a child world and timelessness about their expressions. I think the way the younger one is looking at the camera is fantastic and it has a great feel but sad to see kids with so much to think about! The natural and bright colours works really well drawing the eyes so effectively. Great work, Congrats

    Hi Ike
    Yet another superb inflight capture and pin sharp detailed, so well frozen full of rich colours, in particular I love the eye popping colours on the tail which extremely lends a tremendous lift against the background. The light handling is flawless as usual. Great shot, Congrats

    Hi Ourania
    Human ants waiting to cross and the zebra lines are two strong elements and this shot also expresses what fascinates and repels me about city life. You've got great eye for clean composition and good focal point with impactful low shooting angle and you've made excellent use of the available sweeping lead-in creating a lovely patterns in this shot as the eye reads naturally from bottom LHC diagonally to the main show. This is very nicely observed and the exposure's very well balanced full of vibrant colours!. Simple but catchy street photography, you knew exactly what your were looking for. Very well done, Congrats

    Hi Noel
    A very imposing image of the very intimate glimpses into real lives in the distant past! I think the strength of this huge Celtic tombstone is the intricate detail in the patterns from top to bottom and you've got right there emphasised by getting closer, taken in that brief moment when the sun shines at an angle. The stone almost turning mossy green - isn't it wonderful how different materials left to weather together turn to nearly the same colour - the mix of man-made and living. Compositionally great too having it slightly off centre helps to eye to appreciate the bg and the sky behind is indeed awesome. This is a really calm & peaceful observational shot all conveying appreciation and understanding of this historic monument. Great lens work, Congrats and tfs
    Always appreciate your useful narrative.

    Fine view of the impressive Stirling Falls, large cascade crashing down the cliff face. Probably everything gets soaked within visual distance?
    This scene is a reminder of New Zealand's prominence in the Lord of the Ring flicks.

    A very impressively composed shot as focus is concentrated on the catchy moving caterpillar crossing the gushing water and how well it blends into the earthy toned environment. I love the diagonal touch, depth, clarity and the immaculate detail. A satisfying image in every way and very carefully constructed. Excellent catch, Congrats
