    Hi Robert
    is this car for real???
    looks like something out of a Hollywood movie set!

    absolutely love the perspective you got of the car.
    the way the hood of the car flows back, and the way the headlights are in our face is awesome.

    wicked COOL car shot! and its a car that takes notice for sure.

    fun shot
    cheers

    Hi Ana
    haha...so he was a hungry boy! I bet he didn't want to leave you guys :)

    smart intelligent dog i'm sure.

    he sets the stage for the landscape very well, our eyes are drawn to him first, then we move upwards and into the bg of the image. lovely shot that was i'm sure was unexpected.

    Hi Lisa
    what the heck is this!
    reminds me a bit of the weird escalator we captured in Naples :) remember that one I posted?

    the best part for me i think, are all those reflections.
    I feel like I'm standing in one of those FUNNY MIRROR rooms at the circus lol

    funky shot Lisa, its a head turner

    Hi Pavle
    you often show us charming and colorful backyards, and I guess this one suits that as well :)

    reds and greens dominate the scene, and the red certainly pops.

    picturesque scene, something we'd see in a farm calendar or something :)
    thanks for this one

    Hi Christian
    that cloud on the left of the church is positioned perfectly :)

    everything about this photo screams charm and elegance.
    love the dimmed light, love the colors, love the clouds and the tall dominant stance.

    well shot

    Hi Jean
    can't resist the whites and blues.
    anytime you can have these colors plus some clouds, it will make for a sweet charming summer scene.

    Hi Stephen
    its always a good day when you can capture photos from marina's, expensive boats and lots of elegance.
    thats what I see here, and with a hint of old time charm too.
    lovely day for photos, popcorn clouds, bright light and colors. whats not to like!

    Hi Krzysztof
    I chose this shot in your gallery simply because I like the subject, architecture and the angle/composition you took it from.

    even just looking at the history, the age of this place is outstanding. Imagine how it looked hundreds and hundreds of years ago.

    lovely shot all around in this harsh lighting.

    wow, those are some stunning colors!
    you have exposed this scene perfectly too, I wouldn't want to change anything at all to it.
    that orange color is outstanding.
    charming subject matter too, well done.

    Hi Eleu
    now this is something we don't see everyday is it.
    I think i've seen similar construction in Palm Springs.

    but this is pretty neat, looks like its STUCK in the rock!
    very unique subject, unique picture all around, nice shot

    Hi Noel
    why does this sculpture look familiar to me?

    Ah yes, the transforming child-swan story...now I know it.

    this is one of those times where the overcast grey sky really helped out with the overall scene...who says you need a blue sky for good photos!

    excellent upwards compo and set up, makes it look larger and of course makes a large impact visually too.

    and you'd never think this was taken in Dublin, looks like you're out in the wilderness somewhere.
    cool shot

    this scene is too quiet and too boring for me...haha...just joking. Are you kidding me, there's so much going on, its a feast for the eyes.
    So was she a good player? probably right?
    fun shot, really stands out in your gallery

    Hi Gert
    my first thought is...too bad you couldn't have captured this photo from the OTHER side, that why the mans butt wouldn't be in our face haha...and we'd see more of the woman's profile instead. But thats only in a perfect world, i'm not complaining, its just an observation.

    When we steal these photos from wedding photographers, we have to take the OTHER angles :)

    as for the title of the song...never heard of it.
    I know ABBA, but not this song.

    fun shot, its always a good grab shot on our travels.

    Hi Gy
    I just had to take another look at this one.
    there is a sense of natural beauty, but also a sense of mystery and creepyness :)

    Who knows who's about to come walking down that trail.

    love the way the trees are so vertical, and how the trunks contrast the green colors.
    smart compo

    Hi Klaudio
    the way you describe the scenes driving around is EXACTLY what I experienced when driving around Lofoten in Northern Norway.
    We stopped the car countless times.

    and even in the hazy sunlight you still delivered a fine looking nature landscape shot.
    the waters are still, the mountain tops are clear to the eye and the browns in the fg give a much needed contrasting color to spice it up a bit.
    nice shot
    cheers

    Hi Ann
    so we are helping people with their travel plans! lol
    looks like alot of members now want to travel to Northern Norway, we should all get a percentage haha

    I wonder how large or how small that lighthouse is because its kind of hard to tell from here.
    Looks kind of small though, but the red color surely stands out.

    Personally, I prefer the sprinkling of snow in there areas, just as we see in your photo.
    the lighting is excellent, the rough craggy rock is well defined. Nothing to change here!
    Cheers

    now thats a fun subject to photograph :)
    who ever built it did a find job.
    we could see another 1000 photos on TE and not 1 would have this same subject.

    Hi John
    so, how many photos did it take to get this one perfect! haha
    taking shots of birds in flight is alot like panning photography, its so hard to get one JUST RIGHT.

    But you have certainly succeeded with this one my friend.
    as you said in the note, the way they're composed here in mid flight is the bomb! Or as Lisa would say...its a Cracker! lol

    there's a bit of ghosting with the lighting, but we can certainly overlook that.

    I keep going back to the compo and where the birds are positioned, its as if you strung them up with string lol
    well done in capturing this very difficult photo.
    Cheers

    Hi Maciej
    I'm not 100% sure, but I think this is the same church I have in my Poland gallery.

    such a sad story, so many sad stories from WWII with Poland and Germany.

    a fine day for taking photos, the scene is very bright and clear, excellent exposure settings.
    the blue is the perfect color contrast too.
    nice shot
