    Hi Nicolas
    now this is pretty unreal! something special from Mother Nature. It looks beautiful, but also looks kind of scary haha, as if something bad is about to be unleashed on the people below :)

    its a unique shot of cloud formations, I bet you're happy with this one. I know I would be. cheers

    Hi Rob
    excellent all around scene, good eye to compose it in such a way like this. the colourful light reflecting onto the stone is beautiful, such a tranquil mood and atmosphere to this.

    Hi Silvio
    fine shot here with the long perspective lines creating lots and lots of depth, i like these types of scenes.
    and i'm glad you included in the red brick on the left for color contrast as most of the other parts are the one color.
    lovely shot, well composed. cheers

    Hi Daniel
    simple brilliance, that what I'd call this one.
    I like how some of the windows are tilted, some are straight, its not perfect and thas what gives it so much charm.
    the tight framing of the homes works so well, a very likeable scene indeed. cheers

    Hi Costantino
    this is a place i'd like to sit down and have a bite to eat, or at least a drink to enjoy the view. and thats what its all about, that view.

    the sky is a bit hazy, but still, very attractive. Also, its the mood of the scene I like. cheers

    Hi Krzysztof
    now this is a great subject too, glad you posted it.
    I wonder how it looked when it was in its prime. and despite its current condition, its holding onto life for as long as it can. I'm sure its home to birds and critters. cool post.

    Hi Angel
    it was a smart choice of them to use so much yellow in the buildings, they really stand out well in the scene. and that tower and its roof is an excellent focal point. good to have all the people around for added visual interest, looks great!

    its always fun to take advantage of puddles :)
    you took advantage of the long lines which create depth. and I enjoy the rustic feel of the scene too. nice one. cheers

    I always enjoy reflection photos! this one is no different.
    good to have the vertical and horizontal lines shooting across the frame to break up the patterns. funky colors and distortions to make it work well. cheers

    Hi Benny
    about my NYC photo, i know yo mentioned you wish the bike was more in the reflection....i do have a few photos of bikes being reflected, but the other parts of the scene are disappointing, so i had to pick and choose the best overall one.

    you would certainly win any contest involving weird and strange subjects, this is another one. and no, i didn't really notice the balcony till you mentioned it. reminds me of how comic books use the same basic dot patterns for color, if you look closely. this is simply awesome!

    Hi Gert
    Sorry If if keep sounding like a broken record, repeating myself....but I'm so jealous of people living in Europe, and yes, that includes Scandanavia too. You're so close to so many interesting countries...i'd be travelling all the time!

    For me, its a 12-14 hour flight to Portugal!!!!! If I want to go to Greece or Italy, i'm looking at 15-18 hours!!! Not to mention the money it costs too.

    Funny to see this guy sitting here all by himself, and when I mean that I mean from all the tables, not just his table, it was a smart choice to shoot the scene from this pov.

    My initial thoughts were these are parts of the Berlin Wall, but I guess not. I've heard that Berlin is a HUGE HUGE city, and visitors are often overwhelmed at first - i guess it pays to plan a bit. cheers

    Hi Luciano
    how much time do you spend at beach vacations!? haha, you certainly love the warm climate areas! I think you need to book a holiday in Northern Norway in December haha :)

    its neat looking at all the various formations and striations, and colors in the stone, its actually quite attractive, more than I thought I would. cool post. cheers

    HI Rob
    yes, this is entertaining for sure, something very different to view. Obviously, being Canadian, I know nothing about this Ferry Tale, but neither does Gert by the sounds of it.

    and isn't it strange how so many ferry tales are so violent, they're suppose to be for children! and I just noticed another small tiny sculpture on the ground...whats that?
    I like this one, excellent story to go along with it.
    cheers

    Hi Lars
    love these type of shots, but I don't think you'll find it in Vancouver, we don't...well...maybe.

    I'll give you a $1000 if you can count all the masts correctly haha...

    the tight composition works out well, smartly executed result. cheers

    Hi Daniel
    cool looking inner city shot, especially when taken in the tall vertical - i think most would have taken this horizontally, good for you to see it like this.

    I like seeing the wires too, makes it more natural and life like. good side lighting and funky architecture. lots to like here. cheers

    Hi Christiane
    i know how difficult it is to photograph this Palace, I was here with Malgo :)

    the Palace is mostly in shade, but still very attractive, and its like the pov from a backed up position as we can see all of the Palace. lovely blue sky to pull it all together. cheers

    its got a romantic charm to it, it's got history i'm sure, and its just so photogenic. wonderful upload for TE. the lighting is strong, but its almost angelic. cheers
