    Hi Maciej
    love love love Prague!
    I like how we can see the Prague Castle in the upper portions of the frame too, that's an added bonus.

    Certainly taken in the blue hour light :)
    perhaps a bit too much blue, but that's not in our control, it just depends on the timing and lighting.

    and its nice to see the bridge almost void of people too, that doesn't happen too often

    cheers

    Hi Malgo
    wow! even in the rain and overcast sky this place hits a home run with a 10 out of 10!
    When I scrolled down the page, it looks great even when you leave OUT the sky, that works too.

    love the green vegetation behind on the hillsides as a fine complimentary subject.

    but of course the bridge is the star of the show here.
    so much to like about this one!
    well captured
    cheers

    Hi Bev
    yes, isn't it amazing how many of these Chinese gardens are often in the heart of crazy busy cities, yet they all have that peace and quiet to them.
    How do they do that?

    I like that you kept the sky out of the frame, just focusing in on the tree life and the serenity that you mentioned.

    always a fine place for photos.
    nice shot indeed.
    Cheers

    Hi Christiane
    beauty!
    what strikes me right away in your photo is the overall clarity, its got that shimmer and shine to it.

    crisp and clear all the way.
    and I also like the wide open feel with the space in the middle.
    nice shot

    Hi Saber
    this one stands out in your gallery for obvious reasons.

    the amount of detail is incredible, very ornate.
    and I enjoy the compo straight up in the air.
    the photo needs a tilt correction, but that's easily corrected, no big deal.

    excellent architecture shot of this Mosque.

    Hi Hendrikx

    what the heck is this!!!
    A tree of Life huh?
    looks like the mother ship of some sort of Alien race coming to earth, but maybe with good intentions?

    Very interesting indeed, very unique, and it perfectly fits for TE.

    Hi Silvio
    Oh I really like this Church, it has that old time feel and look to it.
    We can tell it hasn't been replaced with brand new Marble or anything like that.
    the stonework on the floor is the best feature.

    and same with the Ceiling too.
    excellent indoor shot.

    Hi Chris
    Mykonos...we didn't make it here on our Greece trip last year...should we have?
    I hear its quite the party town? and prices are very very high.

    I wonder how it compares to Santorini, probably similar right?

    really enjoy seeing the water here, the water looks great. and of course the wrap around city across the frame will always be attractive.

    and even without clouds this place looks sweet in a photo. nice one
    cheers

    Hi Roland
    haha...fun shot.
    good to notice the color contrasts and the photographic opportunity.
    the grey area in the middle acting like an accordion, reminds me of the extra long buses on the streets.
    unique shot, I like it

    Hi Krzysztof
    another great abandoned subject.
    I like how you composed this one, as if you're right at the front door ready to knock and see if anybody is inside.

    Its kind of like the start of some sort of horror movie :)

    well done indeed.

    Hi John
    well, I have to say that I've never seen any of those films, perhaps if I had children or little kids around then I would have.

    the little girl looks quite admired by this guy in London, perhaps she's a bit surprised to see it as I am.

    I see that she has a pink backpack on, I wonder what or who is on that as well.

    Did you notice the 4 sexy women on the right of your picture, on the bus? I certainly have :)

    fun and unique photo opportunity, it has worked out well for you. Fun to see some of the smaller BMW's in the bg too, we don't have that small hatchback BMW here, and it annoys me, because I would buy it.

    have a great weekend

    very cool scene.

    obviously the sharp angle adds visual interest and perspective. a fun street shot, I wonder how it looks in color.

    Hi Ana
    the sky wins out in this one.
    love all that blue with the trailing white streaks and light powder looking clouds.

    and when you have the white paint against the sunlight, its always hard to keep it exposed correctly, which you have done.
    nice one
    cheers

    another charming and picturesque marina shot.

    Hi Danos
    an interesting subject for sure.
    seems to be so out of place, or at least in a very reclusive area.
    this would be a subject i'd love to see on the inside too. Very cool with the stonework and textures.

    yes, lots of fun can be seen and felt here.
    so what was the event, or was it just another evening in Cuba filled with dancing? :)

    the grainy look doesn't bother me at all, its all part of the true experience.

    Hi Jean
    those circles were really made by the wind and the plant moving around? that's pretty cool!

    I don't think your photo is long enough though! haha
    perhaps a bit too long, but it is suppose to be a bookmark style, so I get it.

    the best part is the bottom, and of course the lighthouse is sweet too.

    enjoy your weekend

    Hi Bulent
    a wonderful family type photo.
    who could resist this one right?

    I really enjoyed your note to accompany the photo as well.

    Looking at this one brings me back to our own family outings. Its a photo that we can all relate to on some level, and that's what will make it so successful.

    fine photo all around
