    Hi Burak
    This shot reminds me of prison cell of the late President Nelson Mandela on Robben Island I visited in 2003 which i can remember vividly..
    Not a place we'd want to be but an interesting insight into the world as it once was - or at least one tiny part of it. Good reportage image, Congrats

    Hi Ana
    now that is strange! couldn't they think of something different to do to spend their time!
    certainly cultural and interesting so say the least.

    kind of like a weird take on the costume festival we see in Venice every year!

    Hi Ryszard
    glad you posted this one!
    its a marvelous looking dome when you shoot upwards like this.
    the perspective takes a moment for our brains to comprehend.
    and when I move it up and down it really comes alive.
    lovely light and combination of blacks/whites/

    Good point of view, adequately detailed colourful shot and pleasantly balanced exposure portraying the water effect and its eye grabbing distorted reflections. Nice take, Congrats

    Hi Danos
    wow, we really do get a good sense of how large the area is because of the scale/size of the people walking around.

    lovely color arrangement with the water to give the scene some sparkle and contrast to all the yellows and browns.
    love the depth with the mountains and clouds too.
    well done

    Hi Takero
    yes, i remember many of your Carnival shots! full with beautiful women with lots of facial expressions of joy.
    same as this lady, and i like how she is looking directly at you, and there is so much colour in the scene too.

    Hi Piotr
    haha...i loved this city!
    I remember this exact point of view very well.
    When I was here a few years ago that same church was covered in scaffolding as it was under repair.
    beautiful exposure settings in your shot, and the strong oranges/reds come alive against the blues and greens.
    super shot

    Hi Luciano
    yes, Silvio is a big fan too right?
    everytime I try to photograph these they fly away! Guess butterflies do no like me very much haha

    I honestly think the bg blur of all that green really takes the photo to another level. makes such a strong visual impact. and of course the butterfly is just as attractive too. love the light and colours.

    Hi Angel
    i'm always a fan of the large light fixture that's attached to the wall like that - we dont' see many here in Canada.

    smart position of it too, as it sits perfectly in the blue sky all by itself.

    excellent textures and roughness to compliment the elegance of the white walls.

    Hi Costantino
    whats not to like right? as you say, all boats are so different and each tell their own story.

    this one looks to be in very good condition with an owner that takes good care of it. really like the blue tones throughout.

    Hi Kari
    haha...not the type of scene we'd expect from Finland but I'll certainly take it.

    its all about the low profile view that you got, getting down low to spotlight the grill is the best way to go - a very fine shot of this American Beast.

    Hi Saber
    easy to understand why many TE members have been enjoying this one. Me too, easy to like it.
    so many lines, so many grains of wood of varying shades.
    its mostly about the perspective though, catches my attention right away.

    Hi Rob
    one of my favorite buildings in Chicago!
    I know locals hate the addition of the TRUMP on the side, initially the building didn't have it...but Donald decided to add it after a few years and it has not gone over well with the City.

    impactual scene with the UPwards Pov, its much more dramatic this way. cool post

    I know the lighting conditions were not the best, but thats just about the time of day, its not your fault.
    its a very cool composition with the bridge towering above and through the city like that.

    Hi Gert
    yup, you can never go wrong with a lady in red!
    and she's got a good set of calves on her too haha

    there's just something about the disorganization of the books, the varied ups/downs/left/right positioning of them on the shelves that attract our attention
    we don't see scenes like this very often at all.
    fun shot! worked out well.

    you know i'm going to like this one.
