    Hello Subhendu,
    This photo has a very intimate feeling. It seems like I'm sharing the moment and am a part of the celebration. The exposure is wonderful, and I like the warm lighting and dark background. A happy Deewali to you. :-)

    Hello Mesut,
    I like the textures of the stones in this photo. They provide a neutral background that really make the little girl's purple sweatshirt stand out. She has such a sweet smile, and seems to be having fun feeding the pigeons. It's a lovely daily life shot.

    Hello Gert,
    I guess this goes to show how important movies can be in people's lives! I like how all the people and donkeys are heading towards us. It seems like they will continue to walk right out of the frame. This is another great oldie.

    Hello Edward,
    If this photo wasn't in memory of a murdered soldier it would certainly merit a green smiley. But this time I will just thank you for this tribute. Seeing the two soldiers guarding this monument is a strong visual and a fitting view on this somber occasion.

    Hello Craig,

    It's funny how red looks great on women, but doesn't have quite the same effect with men! Although this particular gentleman does look sharp, I prefer my male models to wear something a bit darker. ;-) I like all the windows in this photo, and the cute little Juliet balconies. All of the colors are really nice, too.

    On a sadder note, it's terrible about the murder in Ottawa yesterday. I will NEVER understand how people can justify killing others. There are so many lunatics out there...

    Hello Bev,
    I like all the lines in this photo, and your crop and presentation make the scene really stand out. The tilt is great, and that small grate on the floor in the foreground adds even more lines to the mix. :-) The bulging shape of the railing and all the shadows are very attractive, and those people were sitting in just the right spot to make everything come together.

    Hello Livia,
    I like public art, and these sculptures are fun. :-) One man seems to be looking at the "children" with wonder, but the other isn't even paying attention to them. I like the different poses of the sculptures, and how real they seem.

    Hello Jason,
    Nice view with the lady in red. She's in the perfect spot with that older house beside her. The architecture, and that bit of blue paint on the window in the foreground, are nice, too. I agree with CLODO's WS on this one, but your original photo is also fine. :-)

    Hello ana,
    What an impressive sight. It must have been very dark, but your long exposure is perfect. I personally like this view of Buddha; I have a small collection of Buddha statues at home. It's great that caves as old as these are so well-preserved. I like the columns and beamed ceiling, too.

    Hello Barnabas,
    This colorful graffiti is great. At least it was painted in an alley where graffiti is allowed and encouraged. I like the fish motif, and the way we can see the bricks underneath the paint.

    Hello Barnabas,
    Interesting bit of cityscape from Detroit. The towers are impressive, but I wonder how the retailers have been doing since Detroit has been in decline. It's cool that you could take this photo from a different country, and it's still so sharp and close. :-) It must be interesting to drive between Detroit and Windsor, since it's the only Canadian city that's actually south of an American one.

    What a beautiful reflection! I like how it appears between the small stones. The colors are strong and those flowers are really lovely, too. The warm sunlight makes this scene even more special. Very nice! :-)

    Hello Roland,
    I just posted an urban art photo, and then I found yours. :-) I like the way you filled the entire frame with this colorful mural, and then captured the two women walking by. It's all very stylish, well-seen and well-presented.

    Hello there Gunk,
    I like this funky wide-angle view of the Kremlin. The gold domes are beautiful, and those two people are in the perfect spot in front of that big door. The textures on the ground are also interesting. Have a good one! :-)

    Hello Craig,
    Havana is certainly timeless. I think you can find a car in every color of the rainbow over there! I've wondered before why most people have the same boring color car here in the US. Anyway...getting back to your lovely photo, I like the Capitolio view and the bright, blue sky. One of those cars might very well be the one owned by my late grandfather before he left Cuba. :-)

    Hello Swapan,
    I really like these silhouettes against the golden light of the rising sun. The texture of the nets, and the reflections on the wet sand, are also lovely. There is a wonderful atmosphere in this photo.

    Hello Bulent,
    What a photogenic pair! I'm sure they have some interesting stories to tell. I like the spontaneity of this photo, and the mystery surrounding who these two really are. I wonder where they thought their photo might end up. I can understand them thinking you were a professional photographer, but whatever else they were thinking will remain unknown...

    Hello Malgo,
    That's a lot of watermelon!! I really like the POV looking down, and it's a surprise to find a fountain full of melons instead of water. I like all of the architectural details, too. This is one shopping mall that I wouldn't mind strolling through for a while.

    Hey Ja Krispy!
    I was comparing your photo of this station to Malgo's, and while they are both great, this off-center, more vertical presentation grabs me a bit more. Love those circles on the ceiling, and it definitely adds to the scene having a couple of people in the frame. They are also in the perfect spot, closer to the foreground. What a photogenic subway system they have in Moscow!

    Hello Craig,
    I like the color of this classic car; it definitely jumps out against the fading paint on those old houses. The balconies look like they're on the verge of coming down, and hopefully that doesn't happen when someone is standing on them! That's also a creepy bit of graffiti on the green door on the right. I wonder what is actually "dead". Thanks for another great Cuban scene. :-)
