    Hi John,

    Yaawwwwwnn, O.K., I'm already bored with this place...what else have you got? lol

    You sure know how to make the best of out a, dare I say it, dull situation?!! :) I wonder how many times I can squeeze that into my note, might be hard to beat your record though. Love the notes, and as I read your reply to Gert, I feel we are certainly of like minds. :)

    Perhaps there's not a lot of subject material, which frankly, is in the eye of the beholder...but you've been creative and infused intrigue through the imagery and information provided. Plus, a good sense of humor always helps as well.

    For someone like me who is surrounded by cactus and arid landscape, this is actually a visual I find attractive...simple by nature, but enticing none the less. I wouldn't mind a drive down this old country road, "dull" as it may be. Just had to get one more in. ;) Have a great day ahead. All the best.

    Friendly wishes,

    Jason

    Ciao Luciano,

    Even with a completely "white-washed" village, I'd say this is quite a colorful shot! What a great harbour scene, and your good fortune to have come across these boats which follow the countries flag in color...kind of poetic, don't ya' think? :) Crisp and clear, this would be inviting for anyone...I wonder just how much the population increases during the summer months, I know I'd like to be part of that statistic! Super view and Mediterranean mood collected. Enjoy the new day. Take it easy.

    Friendly wishes,

    Jason

    Hi Bev,

    I guess you sometimes just have to take your chances and see what the weather brings. Certainly an apt title and description to accompany the approaching storm, get your time in while you can! :) Love the atmosphere you've collected here, literally and figuratively. Those darkened clouds have an ominous feel, but the brightly lit homes would suggest otherwise...it's a fun play of contrast. Well, fun for me...I'm not the one about to get soaked!? lol

    A lovely vista over the beach and hillside, and quite a different one too...most often we get the views looking out towards the sea. My car is actually an Intrepid (Dodge), does that count for any kind of determination on my part? :) Enjoy the new day. All the best.

    Hi Ike,

    An impressive display of organic color and texture put on by nature. I'm amazed at the clarity and definition of detail from the natural light working it's way down through these man made caves. I bet there are more than enough photo opportunities in a place like this, and you've put together a fine showing from this given vantage point. I like how the entire frame is filled with the formation, with just enough open space to hint at the exterior and leave us guessing just a little bit....and the WS helps too. :) Good editing to bring out the best features. Enjoy the new day. Take care.

    Friendly wishes,

    Hi Burak,

    A well timed and topical title in this day and age of "the cloud." :) Like a balloon hovering over the golden Invalides dome, I'm almost expecting it descend at some point and be burst by the steeple. lol A beautifully simple arrangement with a strong focal point and a light feel from the vast open space above the city. A nice example of when the "less is more" concept is best applicable. Enjoy the new day. All the best.

    Bonjour Claude,

    Like location is to real estate, timing is to photography. :) I'm surprised there are only a couple of comments before me, this is a wonderful play of light and shade. Sure, the image quality may not be the greatest, and I realize that's a bigger issue for some, but I love what you've come away with here despite the technical degradation. I actually like the gritty, urban finish to accompany the black & white format in this instance. Patience is a virtue, and yours paid dividends to capture this silhouetted figure to complete the scene. Bonne journee. All the best.

    Amicalement,

    Jason

    Unique setting for as stated only accessible by canal boat, the classical cottage attracts for surroundings of varying plant types and accentuated by red window shutters.

    Fine up close view of the antique San Cristoforo Church, simple design yet classical presentation.
    The lack of windows would probably make for a dark interior?

    Attractive Narmada Kund scene with the many varying solid white Hindu temples rising out of its glassy waters. Both a serene and mystic beauty.

    This classical wood schooner perhaps decades old, would be fun to sail on around Leros. Just the opposite of the huge commercial cruise ships, and more adventurous.

    Good to see this classical steam locomotive still operating, and ironically hauling cabooses which the RRs abandoned decades ago.

    Hi Luciano
    its so cool that you basically have the colors of Spain in the boats, but yet everything else in the scene is blue and white.

    It almost has a greek feel and look to it because of the architecture in the bg.

    bright and light all around, now I wanna go boating!
    see you around

    seeing this shot really makes me want to post more photo's from Poland and Warsaw.

    you had yourself a fine day of attractive light and colors.
    and I also like that you were able to fill up the entire frame from top to bottom.

    excellent views from Old Town Warsaw.

    Hi Jason
    So I guess this is one of those photo's you were talking about that was going to be fun for me to view :)

    and man, you hit the nail on the head.
    There's nothing sweeter and sexier than a lady in red or a sports car in red. Well, maybe a sexy lady IN a red sports car lol

    One thing that I don't think many have commented about, is the face that the lady is looking to her left, away from the camera lens.

    I honestly think thats the best part about her disposition.
    its more casual and 'real' that way.

    the white bg, the red/blue shirt and jeans...all those colors contrast so well to each other.

    the red arrow at the top is kind of a cool addition too.
    awesome post my friend.

    thanks for the photo and i'm happy to be an inspiration haha
    It was funny to hear about you talking out loud, but not really noticing you're talking out loud while about to shoot the scene. lol

    great post my friend!
    Cheers

    Hi Delphine
    always fun to see new photos from you.
    Personally, i try to avoid taking photo's where there will be a white hot sky...but i've also learned from TE that you can still get a very attractive photo out of it.

    same with yours, the white sky doesn't bother me at all here. I like the choice of shooting the scene on the side angle the most. the perspective works so well.

    nice shot
    cheers
