    Hello and welcome to TrekEarth,
    I love birds, and this is an excellent close-up of this group. It's interesting that only one of the birds seems to be awake, while the others all rest with their heads tucked behind them. Excellent sharpness, and I also like the reflections.

    Hello Serghei,
    It's nice that I actually saw this photo on your camera when you took it, and now I'm seeing it on TE. :-) There is a nice diagonal created by the chairs and the location of the two people. This church was definitely more quiet than many others in the midtown area.

    Hello Rob,
    Times Square can seem like another planet sometimes. This is a funny combination of people. It looks like Elmo's eyes are about to pop off his face from looking at the painted lady, but the violin player seems a bit bored. :-) I think that woman on the left is trying to stop Elmo from grabbing Miss USA, which is also funny. Nice job creating this mixed view.

    Hello Serge,
    I've never seen a puppet like that before! It's a surreal and interesting scene. I like the red costumes of the people controlling the giant girl, and it's strange to see two of them in the air next to her head! This is something different, and I like it. :-)

    Hello Altaf,
    Thanks for the message you sent. I'm not an expert, but I've learned a lot from other TE members, and I'll gladly share those tips with you. Let's start with this lovely view. The scene is beautiful, and it has great depth. There is a tilt to the left, though. That can distract from the overall viewing of the photo. I made a workshop with some small corrections.

    Hello Bulent,
    Your wide POV allows for a lovely view of this spot. I like the rocks jutting from the water and the bit of greenery in the foreground. The one, lone woman strolling on the beach has a quiet spot all to herself, and it looks calm and relaxing. It's been so hot the past few days, and the water looks really inviting.

    Hello Chris,
    Nice view of this church that looks very well-preserved. The artwork is great, and I like the symmetry in the design. The person standing in the central arch looks very small compared to the size of the church itself.

    Hello Aleksandar,
    I like this view because everything in it is old. Those walls and that cobblestone floor have probably remained the same for many years. The textures and colors are very nice, and I like that one person is walking out of the frame in the distance. I can feel history talking from those old windows...

    Hello Piotr,
    This is a beautiful blue hour photo. The exposure is perfect, and I like the POV, too. There is an optical effect that makes it look like the water is spraying towards us. The fountain is very pretty, and the reflections on the ground add another dimension to the scene.

    Hello Gyorgy,
    You found a lot of interesting scenes at the flea market. I like this one because it has an east meets west theme. It's perfectly normal to look for a Japanese sword in a Hungarian flea market, right? ;-) I also like the bricks and window grille in the background.

    Hello Tomasz,
    It's so hot here right now that I'd like to spend a few minutes inside this ice hotel to cool off. :-) I like the blue color and the messages scratched into the ice. Nice job with the exposure, too.

    Hello Craig,
    I like abstract photos, and this one is great. That ceiling is so colorful, and it really contrasts with the metal around it. I like the halo effect and the lines that are similar to the spokes on a bicycle. Really cool. :-)

    Ciao Luciano,
    I didn't expect to see a view like this from the Dominican Republic; we usually see beaches and palm trees. I'm sure there is lots of interesting nature in the interior part of the country, and this view is part of it. I like all the greenery, and your inclusion of the two people on the left. The small, stone area where they are standing is charming, and I like the lamp, too.

    Hello Marie-Louise,
    Nice capture of this girl in Chinatown. It's definitely an interesting neighborhood to explore. It's nice that the girl was sitting in the middle of the symbol, and her unusual pose makes the scene more interesting. She sees you taking her photo, but doesn't seem to mind. :-)

    Hello Lars,
    I was looking through your NYC photos again, and I noticed this one. I've stood on this corner so many times, and taken a similar view, but here you have a nice sky, and a yellow taxi passing by at just the right moment. Since the taxi is the only car in the intersection, it adds more interest to the view of St. Patrick's Cathedral.

    I really like this. The reflection is so sharp and colorful. I think we have been convinced that Filandia, and some other Colombian towns, are full of bright colors. :-) The red and blue door really jumps out.

    Hello Serge,
    I like a focus on architectural details, and I also like this kind of old street lamp. The combination here is very pretty, especially with the yellow glass of the lamp. The shadow is perfectly-shown, and the two different windows make a nice backdrop for it. It's a simple and attractive scene.

    This architecture is very beautiful and interesting. There seems to be a meeting of different elements. I like the stone walls and the colorful dome. The clock tower is also attractive. I like the way you composed this scene.

    Hello Craig,
    Wow! Lisbon's underground looks like a photographer's paradise! of course you need to be a skilled photographer like you, to handle the challenging light. :-) This ceiling is gorgeous, and I also like the WS photo. There are so many artistic details and so much color. I never imagined that Lisbon had such futuristic metro stations.

    Hello Bev,
    What a charming spot. The two buildings are different, but each one is fun to look at and examine. I like the complimentary color of the bricks and the roof. Of course the white telephones boxes are a nice surprise, too. I hope those iconic boxes never disappear. Maybe one day the phones inside will no longer work, but the boxes should definitely remain. :-)
