    Hi Carlo
    a perfect example of old vs modern.
    i'm sure when this was build many many decades ago, they didn't have that water pipe running down the side on the left :)
    the flags add in some color splashes which is always appreciated. fine textures in the wall too.
    cheers

    Hi Ike
    one charming, one not so charming :)
    in shots exactly like this one, i enjoy seeing the contrast between the 2 blues of water vs sky.
    if they were the same colors, it just wouldn't work or be as effective.
    nice shot

    Hi Ryszard
    very interesting indeed!
    I like the additional info you provided in your note, it all makes sense to me now.
    nice to have the other buildings in the frame, as it smartly fills out the composition.
    cool post of this open square.

    Hi Pavle
    such a charming Orthodox Church.
    and i like how its positioned in the city, with the modern day appartments in the bg.
    it seems so out of place :)
    excellent lighting and colors.

    you couldn't have produced a better exposure.
    the lighting is soft and perfect.

    Hi Christiane
    actually, my favourite part of this scene are the tall masts from all of the boats in the upper bg.
    the red jet ski and red shirt are a fine contrast to all the whites and blues.
    a fine summer type scene.
    the exposure is spot on.

    Hi JJ
    you know what this looks like?
    its like somebody baked a cake in the shape of a house, and the cake is falling apart haha

    beautiful home though - and I want to go INSIDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    We NEVER get to see photos taken from INSIDE these old timbered homes sigh....

    one of these days i'll have to see these in person.
    love the tight crop/compo, as the red is a fine secondary color to all that yellow.

    cheers

    Hi Pierre
    well, i get the feeling this is a subject we don't get to see very often from Montreal :)
    We don't see many Industrial sights at all on TE, but i'm glad we see your shot.
    nice to have the clouds help fill out the frame too.
    this is a man type of scene haha

    Hi Christian
    I somehow missed this shot in your gallery.
    Not sure how that could happen with those colors :)
    the emerald green colors are light and supply only a small area of the frame, but I like it that way.
    the rest is dominated with blues and yellows.
    well done with the composition, its quite elegant

    not sure how i missed this one in your gallery.
    excellent perspective, love the vertical compo.
    the long lines draw us in, and the patterns on the floor make a strong visual impact too.

    Hi Ourania
    hmmm...nice to have that window and wall section on the left. I probably wouldn't have done that or thought about it :)

    that dark color, or black color on the left is a good contrast for the rest of the scene. a fine compliment.

    Hi Krzysztof
    well, you basically said it yourself :)
    Lovely rooftops!
    and of course the tallest building in the city has to be the church tower.
    those reds/oranges stand out so well against that blue sky. Fabulous light too!

    gotta love these scenes from Lisbon!
    and of course you have to have a photo or two of the trains :)
    nice to see some other tourists on the top right area too. excellent light, and I also like the tall perspective in the WS photo.

    Hi Malgo
    I quite like this shot, the white and blues really stand out well against each other.
    and we can see lots and lots of details in the Pagoda.
    For obvious reasons it reminds me alot of Thailand.
    clear and well exposed shot

    Hi Luciano
    I like how you said 'one of the very few' architectural attractions...again, it seems like you were not very impressed with the city of Helsinki? I have never been.

    funny too, how the large ship has the same colors of the Finland flag :)

    I've never seen this pov of the city before, so its certainly something new for my eyes.
    lovely light and colors.

    too bad the sky wasn't more in your favor, but what can you do?
    looks like an amazing place to explore by foot.
    and its quite interesting how this area has grassy patches to it, but we don't see anything else nearby looking the same.
    love this landscape scene

    yes, its easy to enjoy this photo.
    funny to see such contrasts, the old house with the brand new looking stuffed toys ready to be played with.

    but there is also still a little creepy feeling to it too, which i like.
