    Hi Serghei
    I think intergalactic railway, a track laid across the skies around earth for alien ships to travel along. Perhaps earth is a station in some space metro system!! Beautiful and most unusual formation of clouds, congratulations on being the perfect place to get them all lined up perfectly like this. The effects of the difference of light between above them and below them is wonderful.
    Have a great weekend!

    Hi Gyorgy,
    I like this in the moment shot with the steam enveloping the man as he stirs over his large pot. A great atmosphere and a fine composition for this story telling image.

    Hi Gert,
    I too like this choice the best...There is a good feel to it with the lady reaching for the books she wants, and what I also like is that she somehow matches, in her colours she is wearing, with many of the books on the shelf. I am glad to see that in our modern day and age, with technology such as kindles and e-books, that true books are still popular in some places. For me there is nothing better than holding and turning the pages of a real book. A well seen and well composed image, taken at the right moment.
    Regards

    Hi Huub,
    A beautiful piece of architecture that is brought to life by night with this golden light, a good choice to photograph at blue hour. I also like the contrast between this structure and the older buildings that surround it. Well exposed to gain all the details on it and the surrounds.

    Hi Philippe,
    Since we do not have very strong and cold winters in South Africa, I always enjoy to see winter scenes such as this one from other places. I feel that the white snow and frost that lands on trees always gives a beautiful feel.

    Hi Bev
    Its amazing the grays of engineering people accomplished back then, I imagine today we have people just as clever but the idea of trying this without the aid of computers would send a shiver down many a spine! This is a fascinating subject and you present it with the medium of a really appealing and intriguing photo.
    Thanks as always

    Hi Huub
    I really like the result! I think partial black and white photos can create something very unique and special and that's exactly what you have done here. Your processing work in the final image is really admirable and the subject is wonderful. The tram is really the star of the show here.

    Hi Petar
    I imagine many people would regard this building add rather ugly but I can certainly see its beauty and unique design. Portraying it like this with fine golden light against a beautiful blue sky also really shows it at its best

    Hi Aman
    I saw these on a TV documentary a while ago and was completely fascinated by them, so it's really a privilege to see this fine photo of this subject. The light has an almost ethereal feel to it which sits this subject so very well

    Hi Arindam
    Great title, very apt for this scene where the colors really do seem to melt into one liquid rainbow. The bridge is a fine great of engineering and is austere industrial feel is offset nicely by both the people and the soft color

    Hi Ra
    I thought this was a shipwreck at first, it had the shape of the prow of a boat and is something to expect on a beach. You have made a really cool and unique scene from an everyday view. The light and shadows are superb

    Hi Sven
    Very beautiful and unusual view of the city, I am so much more used to seeing the buildings of Wencelas square, so it's really nice to see this urban and rural combibation. The colors are really vivid and very beautiful too, the city looks so lush here, and the green and red combine perfectly

    Hi Walter
    As i sit here in Dublin looking at the rain falling outside. The traffic and the grey walls of mundane buildings, this is just the type of photo I need to completely cheer me up. I would really love to be there right now, a beer in hand and enjoying this stunning scenery. Great photo, thanks for sharing

    Bonjour Gigi
    This is a great photo. The calm mirror like reelection in the water of such a peaceful scene is really great and the threatening sky combined with this warm light is one of my very favorite things to capture, though I don't often see this in real life, which makes it a real pleasure to view your fine photo
    Have a great weekend

    Hi Angel
    What a fantastic subject and what a beautiful moment to capture. There is something very special about the light and color and this gives your photo a really particular mood which feels quite old. Really cool photo, one of the best I've seen in a long time, well done my friend!

    Hi Ourania
    O always love shots of cities like this, I spend ages looking at each building in detail and picking out the various styles, if which you have shared many here. This high view is great as it allows such an all encompassing view if this beautiful, v ancient city.

    That is an awesome photo!! The rocks themselves would make the most beautiful subject but to catch it under this light and with those threatening clouds makes this really stand out. Fantastic shot, really nicely done

    An impressive place and this photo does full justice to it, the sense of wide open space and natural beauty is fantastic. That sky is wonderful too, vivid blue and the clouds being so much life

    This looks like a magical place, and the way you have composed it with the strong vertical lines is heat, creating fantastic depth in the scene. Wonderful range of colours too

    This is such a very different place than anywhere I went to school! Really nice composition to set the school building ofw centre like this and allow the view of the mountains. The sense of cold is brilliant and I love that striking red roof
