    Hi Silvio
    A delightful compo, the autumn colour makes this even more graceful and obviously hard to resist emphasised further by immaculate detail, subtle light and contrast putting the focal into perspective. What a peaceful sight to behold.. Congrats, TFS

    Hi Paul
    ummmm....I think you need to add more color! this scene isn't colorful enough, not even close, its too dull, too bland, I want to see more grey's and whites.

    haha

    this one is making my eyes hurt! WOW!
    perhaps my favorite photo you've posted from Columbia.
    the cut and composition is A+
    fantastic!
    cheers

    Hi Zbigniew
    wow, its easy to see why photographers would love this bridge!
    I know I do and this is my first time seeing it.

    those rounded parts on each side really stand out well and make it so attractive. so does the bridge's depth and dark dark brown colors. love the misty air in the bg too, thats adds another layer of mystery. fine post

    Hi Serghei
    I have to be honest, I don't really know what's going on here in this scene!

    could it be similar to what people are doing in India with the Ganges River? I guess what's throwing me off is that railing in the water, it just seems to out of place. the smile on the lady is the best part! very interesting scene indeed. great for TE

    Hi Philippe
    The strong bold colors of the stained glass panels glue the eyes and lovely feel of space and depth too. It's intriguing too, how shooting point actually forces the eye to look what's behind the open door without distracting from main focal. Delicious to view, Congrats

    Hi Chris
    glad I could be somewhat of an inspiration haha :)

    we've both found a pretty cool library!
    even looking at this scene I can see a few neat compositions waiting to be taken.

    love the angular lines, the contrasting flow of the style and that back wall is pretty unique too. nice one!

    Hi Kari
    these shots just keep getting better and better.
    I'm sure Denis will approve :)

    its cool to have that slither of silver rock sloping down in the bg, that looks fantastic. and yes, the train does add alot, i'd be waiting and waiting for the train to come into the scene :)

    funny how the train looks like a toy.
    wonderful composition and lighting.

    Hi Pavle
    I like the near & far aspect of this and putting ther main show right in-focus without distracting. Softness helped a lot to bring out the best in the feathery friends allowing for good contrast as well. An excellent environmental shot of bird life, perfectly balanced and timed. Congrats

    Hi Bev
    I have to agree, the Beta versions really do look better don't they!

    another good write up.
    I always try to imagine how these castles and the surrounding areas looked back in the 13th century. Can you believe the horror and disbelief of the original owners today, if they knew their castle is basically part of a parade going down the river! A sight to see along the route.

    Oh how times have changed. such a charming scene, very photogenic and it looks great in every aspect. lets bring back the Beta full time!

    Hi Brenda
    I've been waiting for a new photo!
    hmmm...different cultures mixing well together...Trump should take note of that!

    this is a great looking mural, so much going on it takes a moment or two to adapt the eyes to figure out what we're looking at. and its one of those murals that I see something i didn't see the previous time.

    love the choice of blue and white, it truly does stand out well. I'll have to keep my eye out for these next time

    Hi Ryszard
    yes, as you've pointed out in your note it does appear the boats are floating.

    the red color splashed actually are very important to the overall scene as it provides an excellent colour contrast. and its great how we can see the rocks underneath the water. wishing I was here! cheers

    Oh i think people are going to like this one! Me included.
    its all about the lighting, the autumn colours, and the position of the Abbey which is off to the side on the right.
    this one is so easy on the eyes, its easy to be drawn into it.

    Hi Krzysztof
    gotta love these old farmhouses right?
    look at what they have to offer, there's alot for sure.
    the many layers of wall, which include brick, mortar, stone, and that door and small window one the left are the icing on the cake. have to appreciate that broom too! lovely lighting to bring it all together. cheers

    Hi Gy
    so who is this mystery man?
    I get the sense this man has a high opinion of himself? haha
    but you say he's a photographer? well then, he's a good man!

    his stance, his gaze, his outfit hat and all make the scene.
    and I truly don't mind the tight cropping, it suits the scene well with him coming out of the right side like that.
    cheers

    Hi Nicolas
    Lovely warm composition, I feel as if the tree branches and the projected shadows all pointing to the intriguing facades. An idyllic close up work illustrating vivid detail of the main interest to the very best and so full-filled framing without any space wasted and exposed to the optimum. A evocative shot that you've conveyed here. Congrats
