    Hi Daniel
    if you can't find a tall narrow street, you'll find a tall narrow building :)

    really enjoy this composition with the stark contrasting forms and geometry from the left side to the right side.

    all one same color though, thats the only similarity between the two. Dynamic shot

    Hi Costantino
    I think you've posted this bridge before, but i don't mind at all!

    you could post them several times and i'm alright with that.

    reading your note, i think the only people who don't like the bridge are the Ferry boat owners who loose money! haha

    love the large clouds too, they add alot to the scene.

    Hi Pedro
    beautiful!
    I personally love these Colonia looking churches, they're so photogenic.

    lovely large red door with the arche, and the yellow/red stones are great too. lots to appreciate with this one.

    Hi Ryszard
    its easy to see why this is probably the most photographed bridge in Wroclaw.

    I spent some time here photographing it as well.

    you captured it in a very attractive dimmed light, and there's even a hint of rosey reds in the sky on the left.

    cheers

    Hi JJ
    I really do enjoy these cut and crop architecture shots, take little pieces of the buildings to form a collage.

    and its nice to have the large light fixtures in the scene too, to break up the pattern of the timber homes.
    excellent shot
    cheers

    Hi Jean
    I hope those people are not thinking about jumping into that water below are they?
    seems like there are plenty of rocks that would stop their descent!

    but as you say, lots of pretty colors and the rugged landscape is quite attractive too.

    Hi Malgo
    nice of Carlo to take you around and show you some of the sights!

    But too bad the sight you really wanted to see was not here at the time.

    glad you added in the WS photos because its hard to understand what exactly this is at first glance :)

    love the sculptures, love the white clouds and blue contrasts. interesting for sure!

    Hi Gert
    as much as I would be in a photographers heaven shooting an abandoned shipwreck, I would think this would be the equivilant for you :)

    and no, it would have been better to leave the children in the scene, thats obvious :)

    lots of colors, lots of light, lots of innocent children making the scene brighter than the sunlight ever could.

    Hi John
    wow, i wouldn't have even seen the lighthouse if i didn't read your note!

    see John...THIS, is what i want to see when we visit scotland. we want to drive around, see the coastlines. Of course we want to see the cities, see some lochs, but also these scenes.

    really enjoyed reading the history of that island, it must have been quite the prison!

    lovely shot with the waves cascading over the rocks.
    hard to beat this one

    Hi Angshu
    the first thing which comes to mind when viewing this photo, is where/what POV did you take it from????

    were you hiking? were you driving and this is taken from off the side of the road?

    what an amazing place, and of course the building has to be a church lol

    lucky for you to have seen this, it must have been a thrill to see something like this which is so unique.

    Hi Jean
    sounds like a lovely place to visit, I can only imagine how it looks on the inside - must be very elegant and rich.

    nice that you have the entire frame filled up, it always looks better that way

    Hi Bev
    you often seem to find yourself in situations with large atmospheric conditions :)

    I'm trying to catch up on your gallery posts, i've missed a few of them while I was away last week.

    funny how you made the comments about holidaying on the beach - Tosca and I enjoy doing the same, but we ALSO like visiting places in winter.

    For example, we are planning a return trip to Chicago because we loved it there so much, but this time we want to see the city Frozen in January!
    You should see it, its beautiful! Can't wait :)

    this town here certainly isn't frozen right now.
    the green on the right reminds me of the color of brocolli.

    and its always fun to see people spread about on the beach, wanting their own space.
    lovely light, lots of charm to soak up.

    Tosca and I are also planning a trip to the UK in 2016, Ireland and Scotland to be exact. Not sure of the dates yet, but i'll let John, Noel, Mariusz and yourself know. Hopefully we can all meet somewhere mutually agreeable, and more TE members the better!

    cheers

    Hi Mariusz
    oh my, i am SO excited to see Ireland and Scotland in 2016! and yes, don't worry, I will certainly let you know when we book our dates - hopefully we can have a large TE meeting!!!!!

    Edinburgh is WAY up on my list of cities to explore.

    and as for your comment about me having experiences of good luck bumping into Models - its so true! lol
    I bumped into another beautiful women modeling on the streets of Chicago last year too - but I didn't post a photo of it - Noel would have gone crazy,
    He's always asking me how do i find these women lol
    So lets count...it happend to me in Prague, NYC, Chicago, Santorini, Warsaw....did I miss anywhere? :)

    another sweet shot, and its rare to see people in your scenes too.

    super depth and super exposure/clarity.
    I like the composition, and how the frame is full of subjects. nice shot

    cheers

    Hi Ike
    yes, i remember this view quite well.
    What i love about it, is that its so different from what we usually see from Israel.

    nice to see the hints of orange in the sky, and the dark clouds looming above. great looking blue sky too, i just noticed that.

    fine shot

    Hi Serge
    this scene has a real psychedelic look and feel to it don't you think?

    love the electric blue to contrast with all the dark areas, and the way the lighting shoots outwards on the ground makes for an awesome attraction.

    Hi Vincent
    yes, i remember Cradle Mountain from one of your previous recent posts.

    And again, i'll say that this is a hike that i'd like to myself one day.

    great views from up here, and looking at Dove Lake it makes me wonder how deep that water is.

    Reminds me of the Volcanoes in Hawaii, same shape, and with a crator now filled with water.

    excellent post

    Hi Stephen
    these narrow streets and alley's really give the city a charm of their own don't they.
    I would think this what you'd remember when you think back on the time spent here, walking these narrow passage ways.

    Personally, i would have cropped out the very top 1/3, the sun is too bright, but thats so very easily accomplished - its not a big deal to correct it.
    love the lower 2/3's and the upwards climb the man is making.

    cool post

    Hi Nicolas
    i had to choose this photo from your recent posts, it makes me think what the heck is this?????

    its not too often we see grass going out into the bay of water like that, stones yes, but not accompanied by grass!

    funny looking scene, one that i dont' think i've seen before.

    Hi Pavle
    at first glance in the small thumbnail version, I thought this was a golf course :)

    but now i fully understand.
    I like the contrasting colors of the green/yellow against the blue sky.
    very attractive and with a soft light
    enjoy your day
