    Hello Garrit,

    Beautiful landscape in combination with the daily life image of the local people with their daily activities. Love the golden green field and the distance hills and forest. It's good to know there was still so much green on our planet earth.

    While most people probably think it is scary to camp in places that you can hear the wild animals at night, I think the opposite. It is such a pleasure to be among them. It seem all creatures has their own places. We don't bother them and they don't bother us. Off course occasionally we run into each other and conflict occurs and that what most people fear.

    Anyway, great shot here.

    Hello Angshuman,

    Beautiful image. I get short of breath just thinking about the elevation here. I remember crossing Chola pass in Nepal, I was so tire and I stop to breath for air but there was not enough oxygen in the air. I had a panic attack. I had to calm myself down.

    Buddhism is a more peaceful that dealt more with the inner self…this image transpire that feeling and also the climbing of the route give you that sense of accomplishment and self worth. I think that is part of the challenge and that why I did the 15 day hike in the Himalaya. It was challenging and it was rewarding at the end to know that we had taken it to the limit. We are stronger that we think. We just never let ourselves the opportunity to go such crazy things.

    Anyway, excellent shot and what a view to behold and cherish for a life time for anyone who has been there.

    Namaste,

    Hello Maria,

    Another good photo with the horses as the subject, I'm not good with horse, they are so big they actually scares me. Love the deep tone and color you have capture here and the low light with long shadow gives good contrast and brings out the light. The people in coordinated color work well and your fram with eh same colors completes the composition nicely.

    Have a good evening.

    Hello Angshuman.

    Beautiful shot of the ruins, you have wonderful light with beautiful blue sky. So many I see are in the cloudy days. The few tourist give the sense of liveliness but not overly crowded. Your POV is also very good with some foreground element to adds depth.

    Excellent color and well manage light.

    Hello Lars,

    Classic Manhattan skyline, Beautiful light with nice clear day and some clouds adds some contrast to the sky nicely. Beautiful details and the panoramic view work perfectly to give that wide open and sweeping view of the city. I was here pre 911, before my digital camera days.

    Hello Dwaipayan,

    Oh boy, this looks so cold and so blue with adds to the cold. It takes me back to my time in the high altitude of Nepal and Tibet. While I had a wonderful time there, I also surfer a lot from the cold. I get cold just thinking about it. Not sure I could do it again :)

    Anyway, a classic scene from the high plateau.

    Hi M,

    beautiful shot, even if the light is not at your side. I always admire that ability. From this POV you have a really good vantage point as if you were lifted up in the middle of the street and looking down at this scenery. Nice details all the way to the vanishing point. Very good work.

    Hi Ana,

    That is man's obsession, digging for gold. Every old towns in the U.S. started with the gold rush. San Francisco perhaps is the most famous of them.

    Excellent daily life image and yes this one show the over all scene better than the previous.

    Thanks. Good quality image as always.

    Hello Maria

    A very lovely photo of the daily life in Argentina, the way of life of the guacho is known to people all over the world. He looks like one of them that I have seen in a ranch in the South, although I think it might just be for tourist down there, it seem too cold down south. Anyway, this is a nice shot of the horse ranch and the main adds nicely to the composition.

    It is easy to understand why you would be drawn the name of Two Marias. I didn't like Two Way streets better than One Way :)

    Hi Dushyant,

    Great shot, love the perspective of the prayer flags. One of the most creative way to capture the flags in such string that lead us all the way out to the vanishing point of the line. I can see clearly the charators on the first flag. Really good quality, my sincere compliments.

    Sabaidee Abmdsudi,

    It is really a nice contrast and the blue brick wall seem surreal, like a blue light illuminating it. It makes this image special and the woman resting there seem so content. Such a compelling street and daily life image and I like her attitude, happy and carefree. These days, it is not easy taking picture of people even in places that used to be really no problem. I see chunks of ice here. Looks like it a place that sell Ice in big blocks. My sister family used to do this in Laos.

    Excellent shot shot.
