    Ali,

    nice photo, and beautiful building. I did not realize its purpose, but I believe it has a religious character.

    Hi Tiffany,
    Perhaps it because of the movies, but I have always found this statue incredibly lifelike and you captureed that really well here, the great man looks like he is ready to stand up and declare some great words to the world. I love the golden light you captured here too, which really brings the details of the sculpture out well.
    I visited this place a few years ago but got no pictures from inside that I was happy with, as there were SO many people there, jostling to take pictures. Your post today shows me what I could have attempted, had I been a little more patient :)
    Thanks as always, and best wishes from Ireland

    Hi Eleu,
    Beautifully lit balloon, like a giant bulb lighting up the night with its gentle red tones. It looks particularly nice set against the fading blue of the sky behind. Perfect framing too.

    Hi Arthur,
    A minimalist composition and one that works perfectly well. As you have captured the scene is such strong bright light, it makes the scene very eye catching and it jumped out to me the moment I seen it. From the thumb nail I could not even see the people playing in the sand, showing the immense size of these great dunes. Really cool shot. Thanks for sharing.
    Cheers

    Hi Carlo
    I too very much like this lonely tree, it always makes such a great opportunity for an eagle eyed photographer. As you have presented this, it seems that the tree is a guardian for the scene below, standing proud and watching out for danger to protect its environment, the shadows in the lower part of the view are very beautiful and add a lot to your composition,
    Best wishes

    Hi Costantino,
    What a feat of engineering this is, and reading your note gives a real appreciation for the challenges the designers and builders faced. You have done great justice to this mighty structure with this shot, you portray the bridge as strong and a marvel of construction, but also very graceful as it crosses this water. Really nicely done.
    Cheers

    Hi Bev
    You're right, I would never associate this with a place like stonehenge, but then it seems a lot of the ancient places get very modern visitor centres. I visited the giants causeway a couple of weeks ago and there too the centre is very futuristic. This is a greAt vision of the place, and it reminds me a little of the Borg cube from star trek :) nice conversion to black and white too, which seems to emphasise the intricate design in the upper part.
    Best wishes

    Hi Burak,
    Lovely off centre composition that makes this immense tower look like a man made mountain, and there is such detail in its construction. The perfect blue sky is ideal to present such a sight. You have really stirred an interest in me in this cathedral, fantastic place,
    Thanks again

    Hi Gigi,
    Blue and gold have neve looked so well together :) this is an amazing place, it shows immense strength and a fortress that would hold off any invader, but those gothic central towers also give it a delicate grace that belies its immense power. I see from all the people around this is a popular place to relax, and where else could you do do with a view like this! The prle give wonderful scale too. Beautiful place and shot, thanks for sharing.
    Best wishes

    Hi JJ
    I think I mentioned before that if there was one place I could just transport to with my camera, it would be versailles, and what more reason does anybody need than this stunning display. The whole place is such an exercise in decadence and opulence, and despite the hardship it's creation caused by taking away from the people, what a legacy it is to leave the world. Every single part of your frame is filled with exquisite detail and stunning color, and compliments that this is hand held, perfectly clear. Beautiful.
    Thanks as always
    Noel

    Hello Jean,
    Beautifully composed - I love the idea of cutting people in half especially when we can see their relections. The reflected lighthouse balances the image very well. Lovely sharpness in the FG has picked up the details in the sand.

    Hello Gert,
    I thinks that people on steps of large buildings provide wonderful photo-opportunities. I like the distance and juxtaposition between the two people chatting (both fortunately in red trousers) and the man on his own reading a book. A graphic image with a human touch. Very well taken.
    Kind Regards, Ann

    Hi Craig,
    A great view of Chicago from an unusual viewpoint! I enjoyed reading your note - it is hard to imagine having the kind of money that could purchase two floors in such a prestigous building! A great skline captured here with first class sharpness and exposure. Love the view!

    Hello Jean Jacques,
    I have not visited to this great Palace and must make the effort to do so. These golden gates really are magnificent and an imaginative way to photograph the palace.
    Expertly taken and presented.
