    Hi Luciano,
    What a beautiful view of this ancient and crowded city, I imagine it's density adds to its charm so much, and certainly suummons up a wealth of sounds and smells. As much as I really really like this photo, I cannot but feel a tint of sadness as I wonder what this view would be like today, how much of this magical place still stands. Your shot is likely of great historical importance, if this area has changed as much as I imagine the at has changed it, then this will be a fascinating view for those in the future. Really great post.
    Cheers
    Noel

    Hi Ryszard
    This place looks so English, the architects influence is very obvious. Great idea to shoot this with the boat filled watery foreground which adds a great and rather unusual touch to a building like this. Lovely activity in the sky too.

    Hi Neyvan.
    There is a beautiful array of colors in this photo and the snow adds an extra something, ie not seen a scene like this with the snow delicately place like this. Such an extensive view beyond the beautiful foreground too. Great shot.

    Hi Alain,
    These colors are really theatrical and really dramatic, this could easily be a scene from an epic movie. Those aces in the ice add a really mysterious touch to the photo. People use the phrase jagged peaks to describe mountains, this is one of the jaggedisest I've seen.

    There is a tremendous sense of depth in your picture, as I gaze off to that distant cliff. Beautiful composition, I really like that there is so much space to the sky.

    Hello jean Claude,
    A very well exposed photo of great graphical beauty. The composition has a nice diagonal going through the "eye", and every part has very clear details, from up in the sky to down among the people on the ground.
    Best regards,

    Hello Gunnar

    The dark wooden church contrasts well against the lighter tones of the bg blue sky to give a pleasing graphic element. Excellent sharpness and well framed and composed. Tfs.

    Hi Eugene,
    Beautiful, beautiful shot. Reading your note, it is amazing to think of a million people in a city in that era. That adds to the beautiful majesty of the buildings you chose to shoot, and combining the mighty temples with the smaller ruins reminds us that every great empire falls. To see this place on its heyday..... Very nice framing with the old brick walls too, it really makes me feel I am in the scene.
    Cheers

    Hi Robert,
    Their eyes are so intense, they kind of creep me out but that doesn't take away at all from appreciating the clever cropping of this to make the most of the subject. I can imagine if you framed and hung this shot, tho eyes would follow you around the room. Great variety of colors, some of them quite unusual.

    Hi Robert,
    Nice in black and white and very artistic, I could imagine this being considered a classic photo in the future, I do like the lighter color chairs in the top left, as they do well to soften the darkness of the black ones and the shadows, and they are really dark areas. It's like a deconstructed zebra.

    Hi Denis,
    Great moment to wait for, and I love that feeling as the sun begins to light inch by inch until you have the setting you want, really cool. I like that the house in the middle is split color too, as the light hits it it gives the appearance the light is changing the color.

    Hi Ray,
    I know you don't like this place, but I actually love the shot, it's well considered and places the dam in such a way to really make the most of its mass and it's sweeping curve. I have an odd appreciation for ugly architecture and vast engineering and this has both. It really does show the sheer size well, I can imagine the impact it has on the surrounding parkland. I just read the note on your last post too, it seems they really are the fun police running this place.
    Cheers

    Hi Frank,
    Great building, very modern and that exoskeleton in whites a strange and almost alien like touch, I love the big shiny sculpture reflecting the world around and the sight of new construction in its reflection. Great idea to wait for the person,not shows the scale of the building really well, and without her there I would have thought this building a lot smaller.
    Cheers,

    Hi Alessandro
    Your choice of view really emphasizes the length of this great building, and the light is falling on it perfectly. I love that active sky behind as well, a perfect canvass for this castle.
