    Hi John
    I must travel to Belgium just to photograph all the castles :)
    there seem to be so many of them.

    really like the border you chose as well.
    same with the angle and pov from this side.
    beauty!

    Hi Luciano
    this looks like a church, or at least it looks like church style windows. Is it an apartment block?
    or some type of old factory?

    I wonder if you can get inside???
    that would be fun.

    I understand your question about why don't they renovate it, however there is charm in these old abandoned buildings too.
    love the colors, the rust, the exposed brick...lots to like here.

    cheers

    Hi Serge
    where have all the people gone!? what have you done with them?
    haha

    its strange to see a place like this so vacant, so quiet.
    I like that we can see one small car at the end, and I also enjoy the yellow wall, it stands out even if it is so tiny because of its color.

    sweet shot of this road and its architecture

    Hi Andre
    now this is bad ass!
    these old American Muscle cars are now worth so much money, if they're in good condition.
    who would have thought that 40 years ago.
    good idea to get down low and show off the front grill from this position.
    looks powerful and means business.

    Hi Delphine
    at first glance, I thought this may have been the side of a Cruise Ship!

    it kind of has that look to it doesn't it.

    its good that it shows some of the peeling facade too, i like that. also, the WS photo you added makes the total package better too. nice post

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.
