    Hi Kasia
    yeah, we don't get to see too many blue hour photos from Iraq!!

    I hope we get to see more of these in the future.

    your note certainly begs for a conversation doesn't it.
    Iraq is quite the polarizing country for tourists, or for anyone for that matter.

    Its great that you visited here. I've heard the people are very friendly and kind. what was your experience like?

    very attractive photo here, the water fountain, the pink hues, the blue light, and the cultural architecture.
    looks great to me

    Hi Beverley
    easy to like this one.
    I remember as a child going to bed and its green, then waking up to a 'winter wonderland' as you have mentioned.

    thats always fun.
    its cool to see the snow on the angular rooftops, and the collection of red/rust brick all over the place.
    brings back alot of memories.

    Hi Erling
    strange that they use the letter T for this purpose.
    what does it mean?
    Hiking in Norway is certainly something that i'm looking forward to doing, just don't know when.

    doesn't look like there's much in the way of tree-life up here. quite barren looking.

    still very picturesque though. hard to beat the cold crisp clean air. see you around

    Hi Takero
    this is a place in Japan that is SUPER high on my list of places to visit.

    I can't wait to one day visiting these monkeys at the hot springs.

    its a lovely 'family' shot :) haha
    great to see the eyes in good focus.

    Hi Piotr
    like i have told you before, this is a region in Poland that i'm still planning on visiting at some point.

    lots of great hiking to be had here :)

    this shot here has a good combination of snow, trees and mountains, a bit of everything.

    excellent light even though the top portion has a hazy sky.

    Hi Ray
    gotta love lighthouses!
    its not the prototypical lighthouse we see, but thats alright, its good to be different :)

    i bet this place has tones of charm on the inside too.
    very interesting to examine this one.
    great subject for posting on TE, really like it

    Hi Ney
    I've been missing many of your architecture photos lately, sorry about that.
    lets start with this one.

    there are many smaller details in this dome and outer structure that should be appreciated, i hope many TE members do.

    and the overcast weather actually helped you out alot, it gives a nice exposure and light.
    excellent presentation.

    Hi Carlo
    what can I say? what a scenery this is.
    makes me want to be sitting right here too, taking some photos and just enjoying the view that mother nature has to offer.

    love all the blues, the lighting and the exposure, looks great

    Hi Jason
    what the hell????????????????????
    I thought I had already wrote a critique on this one!
    crap...sorry dude!

    I know you've never been to Vancouver, but we have an almost exact same set up in winter for a light show like this one.

    its funny to see the Palm trees in the bg, kinda ruins the Xmas spirit haha...
    I once celebrated Xmas with my family in Florida (family live there) and it was the WEIRDEST experience i've ever had in my life!!!!

    Xmas in summer-like-heat??????????? it was like living in a twilight episode or something lol

    cool shot, cool colors,
    Hope to see you back here soon. i'm enjoying all your bw on fb too.

    we leave for India Feb 17th!

    Hi Ann
    umm...did you somehow steal this from my personal gallery on my laptop? what's going on here? haha
    this is SO much in my style of photography!

    you know i'm going to love this one :)

    I like that you added in the home on the left and telephone pole and its wires, i guess its a hint that at some point in history there were people and activity here.

    Looking at it, I want to grab some paint myself haha
    excellent low pov with the fender upfront and in our face.

    I am CONSTANTLY on the look-out for these scenes.
    beauty!

    Hi Noel
    I remember you saying many times that its hard for you to capture 'modern' types of architecture and sky scrapers in your local region...what about this one!
    this works!

    gotta love those yellow horizontal pieces, they work as excellent focal points don't you think?

    and when you can combine yellows and blues, its always a hit.

    love the tight crop and compo too.
    awesome

    Hi Russ
    Yes, I agree 100% about your decision to change this to black and white, it suits the mood much better.

    its a sad but true story of life, and it'll be interesting to see how this exact same location looks in a year or two from now.

    excellent post, an emotional post for sure.

    I think we've seen this type of photo from you before, and i've enjoyed all of them.

    funny how the lighting in the water is much better exposed, its always the case in these shots.

    you know i'm going to enjoy this one!
    anytime you can show me some architecture in a long perspective like this it's going to attract me.

    elegant and sophisticated for sure.
    I wonder how much they sell for.

    Hi Costantino
    lots going on in this city scene.
    what strikes me first are all the colors, the facades, and the peak of homes leading up to the top of that little mountain.

    excellent colors and there is alot to keep our eyes busy and lots to explore.

    I like this one alot
