    Hello Ra,
    I love this kind of urban scene. The mural is very colorful and has a fun subject, and the lone person is perfectly situated in the frame. With the soccer court and net in between him and the wall, it's a really great view.

    Hello Craig,
    This is another great desert scene. I'm amazed by how many footprints there are, but there are no people anywhere! It seems like ghosts have wandered out into the distance, and then magically disappeared. I like the undulating patterns in the sand, and the interesting lighting, too.

    Hello David,
    It's nice to see a scene from the prairies. The boat is cute, and I like that you captured it nearing the bridge. I haven't seen many photos from Saskatoon, and I didn't realize that there was vibrant river life in that city.

    Hi John
    i've missed many of your newest posts, i'll have to get to them asap. I was away in Las Vegas.

    I have to agree, it IS quite attractive!

    Uh Oh! If this is now a world heritage site, that means only one thing John...expect Malgo to visit soon!
    haha :)

    the addition of the red phone booth is the key highlight, as are the yellow/brown long pieces of grass on the lower left side.

    I guess same could be said for the misty fog and the white trimmed windows.

    there's lots to like in this misty foggy atmosphere!
    thanks for this one
    cheers

    Hi Kari
    oh yeah!
    love this one.
    city skylines are one of my favorite subjects.

    this scene here has that smokey orange/brown tone to it, almost like a sepia tone.

    wonderful light, and i like the angled perspective
    nice shot

    Hi Noel
    whenever i see a tall building like this, the very first thought that comes to mind for me is...is there a way up to the top for a city view?

    is there?

    and yes, this certainly does have that Gothic look and feel to it doesn't it.

    it also looks like you're the only person to be up and about at this early hour of the morning :)

    the blue sky color really works well to pull the photo together.

    good vertical compo too.
    see you around

    Hi Neyvan
    another fun and colorful presentation of Norway.
    I never get tired of seeing these photos in your gallery.

    its great to see the dark royal blues of the water, especially with the greens and reds and whites.

    nicely done in filling out the frame too.
    enjoy your day

    Hi Omid
    its not too often I get to see a camel, especially so upclose like this.

    its funny to see how the camel is looking straight at you :)

    makes me wonder....how intelligent are camels anyways?
    just curious.

    excellent city shot with culture written all over it

    Hi Chris
    there's just something about those charming little boats that draw us photographers in!
    what do you think?

    a bit of water, a bit of clouds, a bit of mountains, a bit of water reflections, add in some charming boats...great shot!

    Hi Ourania
    wonderful wonderful cultural photo!
    first of all, i like the black and white variations on the chalk board :)

    and its fun to see the greek lettering like that.

    secondly, thats the strangest instrument i've ever seen!

    a true honest and 'real' moment captured in the classroom, nice shot

    Hi Alessandro
    I picked this photo because i wanted to compliment you on the exposure and lighting.
    its excellent indeed.

    and i love how the pale blue window shutters are screaming for attention, but they're screaming softly :)

    oh yeah, here are some contrasting subjects for ya!

    a good example of old vs new i guess.
    sometimes these little alley way streets offer up very interesting city shots and views.

    Hi Carlo
    Copernicus...did you visit his house in Torun?
    such a smart smart man!
    I wish I were even half as smart as this guy :)

    I like the juxtaposition between the statue and the 2 boys underneath.

    I wonder if they know who the statue is?

    haha...we are both posting photos of USA National Parks!

    what a beautiful landscape!
    imagine how this placed looked 1000's of years ago!

    wonderful composition, smart idea to leave out the sky and just focus on the true elements.
    beauty!

    Hi Gerrit
    hmmm....very interesting note.
    I would never have thought that, but i'll certainly keep it in mind if i ever want to travel in this area.

    what's also interesting is how the boy who's looking at you is wearing a New York City Cancer shirt :)
    I wonder where he got that from?

    boys will be boys, we like our toys!

    When i see your photos of London, every time i think to myself...i need to re-visit this place.

    seems like there are SO many photos to be had.

    love seeing the dome on the right.
    and is that an airport radio tower on the left in the bg? what is that?

    strange collection of buildings lol
    great view though.

    I have to say, you live in a very peaceful place don't you.

    One can easily feel tranquility out here, easy to see why you'd choose this over a bustling city.

    wonderful mood and atmosphere, and the large clouds fill out the frame nicely too.
