    Hello Mariusz,

    This is a beautiful photograph, very well composed and technically perfect too.

    In fact, I think Bulent has described the composition here perfectly - those three arches of the bridge, together with their reflections in the calm water, make a wonderful triptych of three distinct and attractive scenes and are perfectly placed in the frame, dominating the distant view. And the moored boats make a fine foreground while the water's edge gives a lovely and natural lead-in to the whole image.

    An interesting note too.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hi Bulent
    as i'm looking at this ship I see 26 horizontal sails, wow, thats alot!

    what I like most about this one, is the compo.
    We are always taught to compose by rules of thirds, but sometimes it works well to go outside of those guidlines.

    Really like the upfront and center positioning, with equal space on each side.

    Also, the large white border works well too.
    attractive shot all around
    Cheers

    Hi Mariusz
    thats not a color combination we get to see very often in boats, blue and black, but I like it.

    I think this is one of those photos where you could have even left out the sky and it still would have been fine.

    there some very bright light on the far right, but I don't think there was much you could have done really.

    the boats and the triple arches steal the show.
    I bet there are excellent blue hour views with the arches and reflections!

    see you around

    Hi Ryszard
    I'm a big fan of Poland's Town Halls, it seems like each and every one of them is quite attractive.
    smart idea to capture this one on its side rather than straight on. the perspecitve and angles are more impactual this way.

    fine color contrast with the yellows and blues too.
    Cheers

    Hi Silvio
    I thought at first this was taken in France or Switzerland, it certainly has that look to it.

    nice to have that cloud coverage, it makes the scene look a bit softer.

    but of course the best feature has to be that church tower, lots of charm there.
    a fine sense of depth and height in this one

    cheers

    Hi Piotr
    this looks like a wicked hike!
    love this rustic look, very wild and raw.
    it would be worth the time and effort for sure.
    great views, great accomplishment.

    Hi Ney
    you know how I feel about your photos from Chicago, its like stepping back into the past from a recent trip.

    I try to remember all the buildings you show us.
    the one in the middle is the best here.
    love the small details above and below each window.
    if you look at the building on the left, it doesn't have those details.

    fun upwards pov works well too.
    thanks for this one
    Cheers

    Hi Angel
    always enjoy your shots.
    I like the soft colors, soft colors and ambiance.
    and you can't go wrong with a few arches in there to create a nice flow of static motion.

    Hi Malgo
    Oh i love this view, and I knew you'd post it at some point.

    its so different in the winter months, I think both times of the year are beautiful.
    If I had to pick i'd still pick winter because i like the sprinkle of snow :)

    But perhaps seeing it with greenery and flowers, yeah, that'd be sweet too!

    Love your excitement level, we can really feel it in your note and in your words. Gotta have the Passion!

    really appreciate the ws photos as well, its always fun to see some different views.

    keep them coming!
    Cheers

    Hi Jean
    I know I keep repeating myself, but i'm so impressed with France - there seems to be an endless supply of picturesque towns and photographs to be had.

    and this is certainly one that i've never heard of before.

    of course the tallest building in the town is the Church/Cathedral.

    you have yourself a wonderful vantage point, showing off the charm and old time buildings. Too bad for the building on the far left, it kind of doesn't fit style wise :)

    but overall, a lovely photograph and compo.
    cheers

    Hi Jean
    personally, its hard to resist photo from marinas with charming boats like this.
    It will always draw my attention.

    its nice to have the boats scatttered around the frame, as it gives our eyes something new to focus on as we scan the image.

    thanks for this one

    Hi Marc
    great to see you back on TE, we need all the members we can get - as you may have heard alot of members have been leaving and not coming back.

    as for the photo....Oh man...i was in Banff just a few weeks ago and i was looking for this composition....where exactly is this taken from?
    do you remember the trail name or the hike name?
    I'll be going back to banff again

    reading your note, you endured alot of conditions to get this one, so good on ya to follow through.

    love the look of the forest green colors, and the aqua colors of the water with the long exposure.

    nothing to complain about here
    Cheers

    Hi Christian
    I thought I'd take a look at some of your older shots.

    this one caught my attention as i like winter scenes.
    For obvious reasons I thought this was taken in Switzerland somewhere.

    its nice how the scene flows in depth and in height.
    lovely colors as they contrast well with the snow.
    Wishing I were here :)

    Cheers

    Hello Danos,
    A very stylish and elegant boat from a perfect POV. Being mainly white in this blue surroundings it made possible a very Greek composition. You also placed it perfectly inside the frame.

    Hello Jasmine,
    Birds of stone or metal are always better than real ones. They give you adequate time to set the light and sharpness. This view, with the spectacular light, would have been beautiful in any case but the "owl" certainly gave you a fine foreground. The clouds are nicely processed but not overdone.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Ourania,
    I recognize the castle, of course, and the windmills, but you have probably not shown them from this angle before. There are a lot of dry weeds in the foreground but a very nice green belt below the hill, going parallell to the road. Even in late September this looks like a rather hot day, but the air still looks fresh and has a beautiful clarity.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
