    Hello Agoes,
    very effective use of the wide angle lens combined with slow shutter speed to create a fine photograph,the soft focus and the warm light on the FG grasses is most appealing.

    Hello Agnes,

    Don't chide yourself, it is nearly symmetrical and I don't think it would have made a much greater impact than this version!
    I didn't know there were stupas in Europe but there must be more if this is the largest!
    What you have shown us is a beautiful, white building, symbolising peace. Its welcoming steps are irresistible, whilst the waving flags add to the sense of festival and enjoyment.
    White can be a difficult 'colour' to photograph in sunlight but you have coped amazingly well.

    Have a lovely w/e,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Beverley ,
    I`m not sure why, but the industrial outline does as you note fit nicely into the overall scene.
    The lone little boat also adds to balance a nicely composed scene.
    Have a great week end,

    Hello Roland,

    This is another cracker of a shot!
    It is perfectly composed with the building's angle right on the thirds line!
    The colours are amazing as the windows change tones, reflecting each other and the sky!
    I was trying to work out what they reminded me of; it was a beaded necklace, with matching bracelet!

    Have a lovely w/e,

    Hello Satya,
    what an interesting note to accompany an equally interesting location,the colourful devotee does add a nice slash of colour to the scene.
    The subdued light has helped to reveal the textures and details inside the Temple.Nicely done.

    Hello Eleu,

    It is only since I tried to capture the Red Arrows flying over Prestwick that I truly appreciated how difficult this was!!
    A sharp, well composed shot, where the planes have lots of space into which they can accelerate!

    Hi Livia,
    This is a beautiful presentation of this old architecture, the view you have taken brings in so much detail, from the soft finish of the carpets to the bare detail of the brickwork in the dome. You managed the light really well a it varies so much from top to bottom and the result is really a great picture.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Hello Swapan,

    This was an eye-catching shot in the thumbnails and is even better full size.
    The boats make very effective focal features with their sharp, textural details and are perfectly placed in an angled position in the frame.
    The low clouds seem to be hanging over the scene!
    It is a really good, moody shot.
    Well done!

    Thanks for sharing this,

    Hi Abmdsudi,
    This is a nice view and the earthy tones of the reflection in the after is magical. Lovely idea to compose the little boat perfectly on nines like this, even with this little piece of activity there is an overwhelming sense of calm. A beautiful moment.

    Hi John,
    Perhaps e have stumbled on something, what is it about seafood that makes people so griumpy, perhaps this is why chefs curse so much!
    Haha, this is a good compliment to Malgos shot, showing yet another grumpasaurus surrounded by creepy sea monsters. I am guessing that you didn't have much time to compose this, that expression is not welcoming, so well for for being able to compose it so well with the diagonal spat short notice.
    Cheers

    Ciao Caro Luciano,

    This is a more minimalistic capture, with sharp, direct access, wonderful details and colours. I suppose it is one of those examples where less is more!
    It's where style outshines ornate.

    Hi Omid,
    Ibis chair looks really comfortable and you have made the scene very enticing by placing it like this, strongly in the scene in centre frame, you seem to have some beautiful recreational areas around your city and you are doing a great job in capturing them. The ligt here is vy nice indeed.

    Great compositn on this old walled city, the way you have placed the bridge lead into the view perfectly and creates a really nice sense of depth. You alod took this under optimal light conditions which bring out a great amount of detail in the stonework.

    Hllo Trevor,

    This, especially with being b&w, is a timeless photograph. It could have happened at any time since cameras became relatively common.
    I love the harbour setting.
    The features are all important to the composition and all are well positioned. The boy makes one of the focal points, diagonally opposed to the second one, and he, also, provides the scenario.
    It is a delightful photograph.

    Have a good w/e,
    Bev :-)
