    Hi Malgo
    I really don't get the whole Terrorist thing, what is the point!! One day they'll get them and stop ISIS.

    so sad to hear about the recent events.

    as for the photo itself, it has lovely hues and tones.
    and of course the clouds stand out well too.
    see you around

    Hello Ana,
    Another lovely photo, with a different POV. I like how the frame is split between the flowers and sky, and also the church. We can enjoy the architectural details and also the colors of the flowers and blue sky. Very nice. :-)

    Hello Maciej,
    Very attractive blue hour photo. With this lens, the station looks like a giant clam shell. I like all the different lines, and the lit interior section. Everything looks so futuristic.

    Hi Serge
    always fun to see these comical hot air balloons flying high up in the air. I guess this one is a simple clown face, but it also has a hint of creepyness to it too haha
    good to have all that blue surrounding it for contrast.
    cheers

    Hi Paul
    not too abstract for me!
    In fact, I wish we could see more and more of these abstract images on TE.

    this is almost like having 30 photos in 1, lots of images and shapes and distortions going on - what's not to like right?
    fun and interesting

    Hi Erling
    yeah, good thing you went for a walk along the promenade after the boat ride - it paid off well with this unique city view.

    how often do we get to see a colorful lego building like this just sitting around. and it makes me wonder how it looks at night too, i bet it lights up like a Christmas Tree!

    fun shot.

    Keep an eye out for more Bergen shots, I'll post one soon.
    cheers

    Hi Kari
    at first glance I thought this was taken in Lofoten, haha

    for obvious reasons the people scattered all about make up alot of the visual interest, and the mountains in the bg cap it off so well.

    nothing to complain about in this shot!
    well done

    Hi John
    this is 1935 meeting up with 2015....see the Subway sign in the bg, i'm surprised its not a McDonalds!

    my first impressions of this scene were...how on earth did you get it to be so sharp and clear? Must be those Surgeon hands of yours :)

    at only 1/25, this is very crisp and clear my friend, very impressed indeed.
    and I like the overall purple haze, especially when you look at it from afar, or in the smaller gallery page.

    glad you posted this one, its quite unique.
    Hope you're enjoying your weekend
    Cheers

    Hi Angel
    I wish we could see a little bit more of that green building on the left :)
    But you wanted to also capture the man inside the picture so i understand.
    lots of charm and history here once again.
    and the falling composition of the buildings into the bg is quite nice too.
    fun shot

    Hi Silvio
    so how do you get all these butterfly photos?
    because everytime I try to photograph them they fly away on me :)
    I don't think i've ever seen one with this color combination before, the orange and blue is quite striking indeed.
    excellent work in allowing for the bg to be blurred out.

    Hi Lars
    thats strange, I don't recall seeing this bridge on TE before, or at least not for a long time.
    I like the name they gave it, Big Mac, seems to suit it just fine.

    excellent pov from this angle, we get an excellent sense of just how much it raises up and down.
    cool shot

    Hi Ricardo
    well, i can honestly say that i've never seen this sculpture before. and its great how they made it exactly to her size! Sometimes these statues are 20 feet tall and quite rediculous.

    good framing with the shadows and woodwork, and the various tones of blue are sweet too
    nice shot

    Hi JJ
    we don't see these color combinations very often do we.
    its a pale blue sky color mixed with pinks and greens.
    you could have even just posted the photo with one set of windows and it still would have been just as attractive. sweet shot, a summer themed shot.

    Hi Josep
    wonderful to see new photos from you once again! Its been a while right? Or have I missed some?

    so you were recently in London, thats nice, did you visit any other cities or countries?

    I see you had a typical gloomy weather day in London too :)
    well, its a nice shot of the Eye, its an angle that we don't often get to see, from the water.

    I also like that its cut in the frame, with the centre spoke still showing. fun shot

    Hello Chris,
    This is one of the weirdest buildings I've ever seen! It looks like there are some kind of strange bubbles growing out of the top. It's definitely unique. :-) I like the high POV, and the inclusion of the orthodox cathedral on the left. This just goes to show that there are always new architectural surprises to discover. Thanks for sharing this one.

    Hello Craig,
    That's cool! I can definitely see the fox. And, just because I can't resist...imagine the music now.."what does the fox say?"!!! I hope you know what song I'm referencing, otherwise I'll seem even crazier than usual...ha ha! :-) Back to the photo...this scenery is beautiful. I might even like the WS version better without the man. :-)

    Hi Roland
    Now THAT's a red door!
    the best part has to the #54 on it, thats awesome.
    and as for the grafitt, this is more grafitti than Art.

    I enjoy the large murals and such, but not this.
    too bad its in this condition.
    If they repaint it, it will marked again shortly after.

    this scene packs a strong punch!
    cheers

    Hi Alessandro
    this is certainly a wow type of subject and view for me!

    you couldn't have picked a better spot to get a view of the city.

    it almost has a story-book feel and look to it.
    another spectacular view from France, its never ending.
    Just too bad the sky is a bit overblown, but those were the conditions at the time.

    super shot, I wish it were in my gallery :)
