    Hi Dwaipayan
    I always enjoy your nature/landscape scenes from India, they just keep getting better and better.

    sounds like this journey was a tough one, but you managed it well in the end, and i bet it was well worth the effort right?

    great shot of Northern India.

    Hi Gosia
    Iconic symbol is right.
    this is one of those buildings that you just know exactly where the shot was taken.

    I wish I had been here on this night walk as well!
    love the black hour light and the touches of blue light.

    powerful presence in the frame, nice shot

    Hey Brian
    I was just in Las Vegas, didn't get the chance to visit the grand canyon...but if you look at my most recent post you'll see where i did get to visit :)

    gotta love those colors eh!
    love how its brighter and clearer in the fg, and the bg is a bit hazier.
    mother nature is pretty damn awesome!

    excellent colors and depth, and the image is quite sharp/clear too.

    see you around

    Hi Gildas
    its all about the lighting right!
    and this one has the perfect type of light that you're looking for.

    the wiggles in the water are quite attractive as well.
    so are the little hint of blue in the window shutters, thats a nice touch.
    lovely shot

    Hi Bulent
    Its always interesting to see the difference in black and whites vs colored versions.

    and i have to be honest, its a real skill to know exactly what scene in real life, in real time, will produce a excellent monochrome look.

    Not everyscene is made for it.
    I think what works well in this one are the polkadots on the lady's outfit. they stand out as a excellent focal point. what do you think?

    Fine people post and grab-shot opportunity that was taken full advantage of.

    Hi Paul
    this is a cultural explosion of 3 photos :)

    great luck for you, to attend the temple and a festival was taking place - but then again Japan is the festival capital of the world!

    love the colors, love the cuteness and innocent charm.
    I would assume many Japanese could relate to these children.

    Hi Malgo
    as much as i love seeing photos of Moscow - and i do - its also great to see other parts of the country as well.

    interesting note too, i never knew that about bells :)

    awesome collection of architectural pieces.
    and the white/grey combination is quite striking indeed - we don't see that too often.

    the blue sky has helped to contrast it nicely as well.
    lots to like here.

    PS
    I've been enjoying your photos on FB of you when you were a new mother with your young boys! wonderful photos!

    Hi Silvio
    this is certainly one of those photos where it has to be seen here in the larger format to be fully appreciated.

    such attractive lighting conditions!
    really like the natural light striking the back stone wall - thats beautiful.

    excellent textures and sharpness.

    Hi Denis
    so did you take a paintbrush to the clouds? looks like you did :)

    sometimes it works well to have the horizon line so close to the bottom - especially if you want to focus more on the clouds and skyline, works just fine here.

    gotta love the clouds! excellent depth with the wide open feel too.

    Hi JJ
    I know how you feel, so many times i've gotten into trouble going to Hockey games with my camera :(

    so you like Rugby? in my opinion its MUCH better than football - so boring!

    really enjoy this angled scene, and its smart to leave out the skyline too, just the stadium.
    the lime green shouts for attention and it gets it.
    fun shot

    Hi Christiane
    excellent composition.
    I like the fg/bg separation from left to right and top to bottom.

    clever way to use up the frame, leaving no negative space.

    the colors of green, blue and yellows are attractive too. nicely executed shot

    Hi Aleksander
    its hard to resist this type of scene isn't it.
    anytime you can see the light rays spreading out like this you have to capture it.
    especially with the sun going down and the water reflections.
    calming mood, tranquil setting.
    nice shot

    Hi Costantino
    there's just something so casual and so calming about watching men getting their hair cut in this situation.

    the man sitting down in the chair could easily fall asleep :)

    and I enjoy the personal touches on the wall in the bg too. fun shot

    Hi John
    you always seem to find some pretty interesting buildings and scenes.

    I like the way you filled up the frame with the tree branches and leaves, using all the available space.

    lovely bright white lighting too, usually i don't like it.

    thanks for this one

    Hi Amigo!
    I'm back!

    Sorry to have to make this quick, as i'm about to head off to work.

    We loved Vegas once again...and once again our plans changed.
    Tosca wanted to spend most of her time at the restaurants, but she got sick while we were there from eating something really nasty. Spent a good day and a half vomiting everywhere...yikes. So she wasn't really in the mood for eating alot.

    So we drove out to Death Valley Park for a couple of days.
    Pretty cool experience!! Loved it. Gotta go back again soon!

    anyways...nice to see some colors in your gallery haha.
    You mentioned the winter months...whats winter like in Phoenix? Just LESS hot right? lol

    love the orange colors that surround the borders along the bottom, obviously they make the scene work and are the star of the show.

    never seen this view of SLC before, always nice to see a new view...same for your other new post too.

    cool shot,
    great to be back...gotta run!
    see ya
