    Hi Jean Claude
    I wish we could see more photos more often from Luxembourg, looks like a very picturesque country.

    its good to have that road as a lead in, and the clouds fill up the sky with depth.
    pretty color combinations too.
    peaceful and quite atmosphere.
    cheers

    Hi Ra
    minimal greetings to you aswell :)
    the black and red color combinations always look great together.
    there's a reason why so many professional sport teams go with this combination.
    fun shot, in your personal style

    Hi Carlo
    on a photo like this one, you could have easily left out the top half and kept only the water reflection and it still would be an attractive scene.

    I really enjoy the overall pastel colors and soft light, the reflections of course are the focal point in my opinion.

    Hi Silvio
    wow, just look at the age and history of these buildings, its quite incredible.
    the window at the top right of the frame is the best, as are some of the crumbling stone walls.
    excellent post from this area.

    Hi Piotr
    well, I have never seen this place before, and that's one of the main reasons why I like TE so much.

    its so strange how there could be such a little place like this high up on the mountain, seems so out of place right?

    Did you hike up here? or perhaps there's a road?
    interesting view with the city down below.
    cheers

    Hi Ourania
    its hard for me to ignore these street art shots, and you're right, it does attract attention.
    good idea to capture it at this angle as the lines all lead to the top 1/3 area on the right.
    cool colors and textures too.
    enjoy your weekend

    Hi Ike
    thought i'd check out some of yr pics from different countries.

    I know this pic isn't perfectly focused, as its night time and all, but I still like it a lot.

    there's just something about these neon signs and store lights that capture my attention.

    it was a bit of a visual overload right?
    cool shot

    Hi Francesco
    well, we can't blame Lisa for NOT posting this one
    haha

    such a cool perspective as you look upwards, but best of all is that red and black color mix - makes a strong visual impact.

    awesome shot

    Hi Stephen
    I'm a little surprised by the look inside here, for some reason I thought it may have a more gothic or a more rustic look...this to me looks quite pristine and almost NEW! Is it just me?

    Nonetheless, the photo turned out well indoors.
    always hard to do so with the slow shutters.
    the benches in the fg are very crisp, while the lighting is bright and illuminated.
    have a great weekend

    Hi Maciej
    I'm such a sucker for the postcard views!
    Just can't help myself.

    here we have another postcard view from Prague.
    you had good cloud coverage, and a diffused light which is perfect - overexposed bright sunlight is terrible.

    lovely collection of reds and oranges and mixtures thereof.

    who can't enjoy this one!

    Hi Mics
    when I travel I try to get back to the hotel at a reasonable time, don't want to stay out too late :)
    but that's just for safety reasons.

    if you know an area to be safe, then staying out at night can be very rewarding indeed.

    its the atmosphere that I like most here, especially with the contrasting reds and blues.
    fun shot, it turned out well in the darkness, with hints of light.

    Hello Serghei,
    This deer is cute, but we can see from the WS that he might attack! It seems like he really is guarding the store, and he won't let anyone inside unless he feels like it. :-) Nice daily life shot from Nara. I like the view of the shop behind the deer, and, of course, we can also see Hello Kitty. :-)

    Hi Maria
    amazing building right!?
    I loved it here.
    Took a lot of photos, i'll get to posting them at some point.

    you're shot has many of the local interests, people, locals selling items, motorcycles, and even the stray dogs walking around.

    nice to have the women upfront and centre like this, as the first thing we see.

    Hi Ana
    you're showing us another fine looking photo from this area.

    looks like an excellent place to go for a walk with the dog, and of course with the camera in hand too.

    the blue sky is the best feature, its a dark royal blue, really attractive as a contrasting element to the greens and yellows.

    peaceful up here I bet.
    nice shot

    Hi Angel
    haha...and now it looks like we have the same place but in the opposite view :)

    I like the way the homes progress downwards, creating depth and an easy line for our eyes to follow.

    a fine combination of whites and blacks and a hint of blue. enjoy your day

    Hi Ryszard
    as technology becomes more advanced and people start using that technology every day, we're going to find these types of shots all the time.

    Makes me wonder what will happen 50 years in the future!

    it looks like she has no intention of using that Kayak :)

    Hola Ra,
    This is a very visually appealing photo. I like that the vertical frame is filled with so many horizontal lines. :-) The colorful flowers break up the stairs beautifully and really jump out at us. Together with the added human presence, you have a dynamic scene.

    Hi Dwaipayan
    so this is what I missed by not driving up north?
    I like how the mountains overlap eachother in this scene, and they each have different color shades.

    really enjoy these rustic scenes from Northern India.

    Hello Chris,
    This is a very effective composition to show just how Dresden has come back to be beautifully rebuilt. The empty lot in the foreground is very symbolic of the destruction and ruins, and then, behind it, we have some gorgeous architecture. Thankfully the city was eventually brought back to its former glory. I wonder why it took so long...

    Hi Ney
    another fine looking city shot.
    as with your other posts, i'm finding myself searching left and right and in the deeper portions down the middle as well.

    looks like a sweet place to enjoy a beverage sitting on that bench.

    peaceful and quiet atmosphere, lovely lighting and sharpness too.
