    Hello Danos,

    I love how you have given us such good details of the area surrounding the monastery, for it shows its precarious situation! It makes one wonder how they were able to transport materials up to the location for building purposes! It is truly an amazing building in an equally amazing place!
    I noticed the cloning and read your note to Gyorgy.
    It is a pity but I understand that it would have spoilt the overall impression of the monastery!

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Kik,

    This is a great follow-on photograph, giving fine, close-up details of the castle.
    You have composed this perfectly symmetrical.
    The windows, which have stunning clarity, create an excellent 3D effect. The details are pin sharp throughout.

    Hello Fabiano,

    I have never been to Milan, so this eye-catching scene holds great interest. I love your viewpoint, using the statue and his sword, to guide towards the beauty of the magnificent cathedral.
    You have achieved a fine, sharp exposure and an excellent sense of depth.
    Milan seems to be a very busy place, especially in this area.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Chris,

    This is a most interesting piece, modern and ancient at the same time! I love how the pyramid shapes are integral to the pattern, yet not dominating.
    It becomes a curious, optical illusion as you look at it! The bottom seems shorter than the top!

    There have been some excellent historical programmes about Egypt, recently. I think some interesting discoveries were made quite close to Alexandria!

    Did you find it dangerous, travelling in Egypt at this time?

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Ike,

    This just reminds me that the Cycle Grand Prix will soon be taking place in the area where I live. I have been away on holiday for the last couple of years and missed it! Let's hope I will be around this year!

    It's a fine action shot!
    From facial expressions, I think the guy at the front is making the most effort and the other two are taking advantage of his slip stream.
    Three is a great number for composition and you have placed these cyclists strongly in the frame, lots of space into which they can cycle.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Craig,

    This is one amazing building!
    I have stared at it long and hard, trying to grasp what it recalls in my memory. Then, I realise, it reminds me of gills!
    Water passes over shapes like this to remove oxygen from the water ... or so I believe!!
    Whatever, it is one strange building and makes a super, unusual entry for TE.

    My warm regards,

    Hello Rob,

    This is like a piece of psychedelic art!
    I love how perception changes as you view it!
    One minute it is a flat geometric pattern; then it is a shape with depth!
    Very different, very original.

    My warm regards,

    Hello Jean,

    What a beautiful, tiled floor.
    It can only really be appreciated from this elevated position and your inclusion of the feet and part figures, explains your viewpoint. From your thumbnail, I couldn't make sense of the photograph but all became clear, full size!

    I'm so glad that beauties from the past are shared on this site. It means we are able to share experiences that would, otherwise be completely unknown to us! This is a fine capture of a beautiful piece of art.

    Thank you for sharing this,
    Bev :-)

    Hola Angel,

    This is a beautiful time of day for photography.
    The sky looks so clear and atmospheric!
    It makes a fine b/g against which to show the houses, drifting into shadow and ultimately slumber!
    I like your viewpoint, the strong positioning of the spire and how the buildings follow the slope of the hillside.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hi Jean
    these are fun shots to take, especially when you see them on the backs of the camera :)

    the final result is one with lots of silhouettes, but the colours in the clouds up top are the best feature.

    love the large patch of blue in the middle too. fun atmospheric shot
    cheers

    Hi Takero
    I like how you always show us more and more cultural images from your country. This is a totally new one in my opinion.
    a very different type of festival.
    I wonder what the various colours mean?
    thanks for this one again, excellent compo and exposures

    Hi Ricardo
    oh man, this one is all about the composition, its beautiful!
    so perfect, so symmetrical and the first impression it makes is quite the impact.

    and then when you add in the blue and white colour combo its even more striking. great TE post
