    Hi Craig,

    Aw, Shucks! Thank you for your kind words about my old picture of this castle - I'd almost forgotten about that one - but now I remember standing in the drizzle on the opposite side of the loch with my feet slowly sinking into the mud while I set up my camera - by the time I'd finished the mud was over my ankles and most of the pictures were rubbish because I'd managed to get a lot of tiny raindrops on my lens.

    I look at this magnificent drone shot and I'm trying to find you! I'm sure that's Tosca down there at bottom right - I remember her light blue jacket - but where are you? Hiding inside the castle ruins?

    Seriously, this is a fabulous photograph, the castle perfectly placed in the frame with the beautiful sky reflections in the calm water of the loch on the right and with a gorgeous view of the distant hills and sky beyond and with the water's edge leading us nicely into the picture from the bottom right corner.

    A beautiful view which few of us will ever see and with gorgeous light and colours, perfect exposure and, despite what you say, excellent details and sharpness.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    P.S.

    Just in case you didn't know (or didn't speak to anyone around here), "Kilchurn" is pronounced like "Kil-hoorn"! :)

    Good morning, Ryszard,
    Oh, I thought this is attraction, as in Disneyland.
    Well, I still remember these emotions and condition after. ;)
    That amusement would be better before lunch only. Not after.
    I think this construction is good tourist attraction in this village.
    Have a nice day!

    Hello, Jorge,
    When I looked to the thumbnail I thought this is an actor. So pity, it's just a sculpture. Anyway good another report from India. I see you have enough photos from that trip.
    And I am going to Philippines tomorrow through Beijing.
    Best wishes!

    Hi Bev
    not exactly the most sophisticated of bridges now is it :)
    but thats the beauty and charm of it right?
    and hey, it works just as well as something more complicated.
    every time you post a photo like this, a photo thats close to home, it makes me think you live in the forest :)

    a charming piece of history thats still in use today, great to see it close to home too.
    enjoy your day

    Hi Will
    ah...that was going to be one of my questions - what is the condition or state of it now, but I guess you answered that one already. And santorini is a perfect spot for a Honeymoon, i'm sure every woman would love that!

    Your photo has a halo effect or a glow to it, not sure what's thats from, probably the transfer results from the film to the scanner.

    all in all, even though this was taken in 1982, i'm sure it would still look the same if it was still here today.

    its a great photo to share with us because its also quite a personal scene too. another cool TE post
    cheers

    Hi Pierre
    this is the second or third strange looking structure i've seen on TE today.

    its not everyday you see a cross that looks like this one, its almost got a strong industrial feel to it.
    the clouds make an attractive backdrop to the main feature.
    I'm surprised that I like it :)

    Hi Bulent
    this is fantastic, it looks like you took this photo in a park near where i live :)

    so this part of the forest is where they filmed some of the scenes for the movie? if so, thats pretty cool, its not every day you can do that.

    the moss is the main feature and for obvious reasons, the photo is an easy 10 out of 10. Cheers

    Hi Ricardo. The photo settings info must be wrong. 1/1920 couldn't possible be right for the time of day and the milky look of the water. Superb result whatever the setting and a dreamlike scene with the combination of heavenly and earthly charms. Regards. Klaudio.

    Merhaba Bulent. Looking at this image makes me think of Nature's state of being before the axe and chain saw destroyed centuries old trees in the name of progress. Here in Australia we are still destroying prime forests without any qualms- but then we took this land from its original owners who looked after it for more than 50,000 years and although we say we love this land, we do not respect it. What sort of love is abusive love? Wonderful image beautifully captured. Regards. Klaudio.

    Hi Krzysztof
    yes, i'm glad you posted a shot like this one.
    its a classic composition for Valletta.
    always hard to fit into the frame though, so i understand the problems you may face :) Interesting how the left side has mostly green balconies, the right mostly beige.
    love this cultural image

    Hi Pavle
    did you turn the lights on with the crosses? haha
    it looks like they're glowing.
    I would also like to see the church in a wide angle shot, just curious.

    you captured a very attractive light on the church itself, its quite striking. thanks for this one

    Hi Luis
    yeah, this is basically what i think of in my mind when I think about these Croatian cities by the water.

    You mentioned in your note the Medieval times, I wonder what this place looked like way back then. I bet it wasn't as clean and pristine :)

    a fine overview, we see the church tower, the red rooftops, the white boats and a bridge. gotta like it in this light.

    Hi Abmdsudi
    I agree with you, this does BEG to be photographed doesn't it.
    glad you did. and often these little back alley ways can produce surprising results. the man's bright blue shirt, the items on his table, the light striking the large door panels in the bg...so many great subjects here.

    Hi Serge
    always great to see this beast of architecture, no matter what the lighting or weather conditions. On your day here, it was a fantastic looking day. that sky with clouds is the best.
    and the Cathedral is very sharp and clear, well executed shot.
