    Hi Jean
    these are fun shots to take, especially when you see them on the backs of the camera :)

    the final result is one with lots of silhouettes, but the colours in the clouds up top are the best feature.

    love the large patch of blue in the middle too. fun atmospheric shot
    cheers

    Hi Takero
    I like how you always show us more and more cultural images from your country. This is a totally new one in my opinion.
    a very different type of festival.
    I wonder what the various colours mean?
    thanks for this one again, excellent compo and exposures
    cheers

    Hi Ricardo
    oh man, this one is all about the composition, its beautiful!
    so perfect, so symmetrical and the first impression it makes is quite the impact.

    and then when you add in the blue and white colour combo its even more striking. great TE post

    Hi Carlo
    how could I possibly pass up on this one?
    wonderful post card type of views.
    and look at the clouds, wish I could have those clouds in all of my shots haha
    I like the little splashes of yellow, they pop against the blues and greens.

    Hi Tomek
    I can't even count how many times I've driven down this street and seen this view!

    and I've been in that restaurant a few times as well.
    great to see the turning W sign so we can actually see the W, and nice to add in the trees up top of the Woodward.

    fun shot of Downtown Van

    Privately owned, i wonder who lives in it today.
    I like the clock, and i like the numerous windows, that's alot of windows!

    Too bad we cant get a look inside the Castle/Mansion, that would be fantastic :)

    Hi Fabiano
    isn't this a wonderful view? I remember being here myself and being so happy to see this in person.

    easy to see why you'd want to post this one my friend! what a wonderful view down into the valley. and the combination of the clouds/mountains are spectacular!

    what a view! wish I was here to see it in person.

    Hi Lars
    take a look at that front door, now thats a classic old door, the charm and history in that alone is pretty darn cool.

    So I take it this house is still lived in by a family?
    Too bad we can't take a look inside :)

    so strange to have that small window above the door, what is the purpose of that???? cool subject

    and its fun to take a peek into his store :)

    Hi Gert
    please tell me you went up the tower to get the city view, I'll be quite disappointed if you didn't! haha
    Climbing up those towers are one of my favorite activities in new cities.

    and yeah, that red tower stands out like a sore thumb, but in a good way of course. as for the Volunteers, perhaps they volunteered to just stand there :)

    If you look closely, I really like the tall clock on the right - thats cool. fun shot to investigate side to side

    Hi Kari
    another form of transportation for you haha.
    even in January you had wonderful weather here, can't complain about that.

    the two large and tall posts/masts add height for the shot and the clouds soften it up. excellent lighting and colours.
    wish I was here

    Hi Abmdsudi
    I've never been to Indonesia, but when i think about it images like yours come to mind - lush greens and colourful oceans.
    the forest looks to be quite dense and packed here, I wouldn't want to get lost in there.

    although I do not agree with Whaling, I can respect their culture and history/heritage.

    wonderful spot, how'd you get here if its so remote, and how'd you know about it?
    awesome TE post

    Hi Juliette
    this is a funny one :)
    because of the straight on composition, the tall Cathedral looks like a toy :)

    its great to examine the outer shell of the Cathedral and look at all the details it has to offer. the exposure is a tad dark, but thats perfect to see everything clearly.
    wonderful job

    Hi Pierre
    I like this shot alot, it has a real sweet lighting atmosphere to it. and of course the way the reflections are laid out on the water is attractive too.

    nice to have the low level water to make this all happen.

    Hi Benny
    So i guess this falls into the category of save yourself first!

    how about trying to help out the citizens with the flooding, try some preventative measures before hand. Taxes are necessary in a city, but overly high taxes just piss people off.

    I'd like to see more of this Medieval castle, looks quite large and bold with thick walls.
    cool post and history lesson to go along with it

    sorry to hear about your neighbour, thats never an easy time for anyone.

    who would have known that such a subject like this would produce such excellent results.

    the lighting and overall gold tones are outstanding.
    i like this one alot, and we dont' get to see people using that old tool very often either.
    wonderful post and memory captured
