    Fantastic shot, full of religious atributes and eschatological symbolism.. tensed, thick, sinister..

    PS
    You can only guess how long time I needed to recall my old TE password to tell u this way, how we miss.. That's true surprise but it seems that only at TE I can find you active..

    Hi Klaudio
    I could also recognise this one before seeing your name - but by the title, rather than the picture! The picture itself is very spacious and those lamp cables meet nicely above the tower. And yes, that little fellow seems to have a sufi style hat on. Strangely enough, the young man having a drink is what draws the eye, with his red jumper. Wonderful light and shadows and the intricate beauty of the architecture.
    All is well here. Have a happy Xmas with the family, and maybe we'll get together next week or in new year.
    Regards,
    Andrew

    A lovely photo, which conveys a strong sense of stillness through the mirror-like water. The soft tones and subtle colours are beautiful.

    Greetings Clark
    A very sharp looking landscape taken against the sun. Very good exposure considering the contrast and the need to control the highlights in the foreground. But the snow has excellent detail. A delight.
    Happy Christmas to you.

    Hi abmdsudi
    Some problems with the image quality here, but I expect it's a crop or perhaps high ISO and slight focus or movement blur. But that's not important, as it's a very stiking image, with great contrast in colours and patterns, and a strong sense of movement conveyed by the woman. Terrific daily life image.

    Hello Silvio
    A rather gloomy but atmospheric winter photo of this old church. How deserted it looks, and the cracks made by time. A stark but effective 'full frontal' shot against a dull sky. A Christmas time shot with a difference.
    Regards, and Happy Christmas

    Hello Ourania
    A pleasing nautical photo captured with great timing. It's nice to see the blue sky and clouds in the rippling water, and one has a sense of time standing still. A slightly different angle and you wouldn't need the horizon at all - to my mind it's a little too high.
    Happy Christmas and new year to you.

    Great colour in this daily life scene, winter still hanging around. The cafe looks inviting. Glad you included some of the blue of the next door shop, and the man in the warm overcoat.

    Hello Noel and happy Christmas.
    Very nice well saturated shot, making great use of the bright colours and the diagonal line the houses make, and they seem to be the 'meat in the sandwich' here. Great name for this terrace, too.

    Hi Gerrit.
    A very nice composition, with the windy road laid out behind the donkey rider as he makes his way slowly towards the camera. The green grass certainly softens the landscape. This one has a timeless quality.

    Hi Romano
    Nicely composed and well controlled exposure and highlights under a polarised sky. I like the look of it, the tone, well produced to convey a strong sense of the decaying industrial architecture. The perspective view is very strong and I like the presence of the person on the path.
    Happy Christmas,
    Regards,

    You celebrate with a nice sharp winter shot. Carefully composed and with the snowy highlights well under control. Delightful looking village. Love the funny looking arch, hope it's still safe.

    Hi Bev
    This looks like a classic 'calendar' shot, and I mean that in the most complimentary way. It's 'busy' in one sense, but there are clear angles and lines of perspective, strong foreground interest, and the all-important girls on the seat. The eye is drawn nicely from the nearest small boats, past the girls to the sunlit buildings top right. I thought the girl on the right had a far-away wistful kind of look, but I've just noticed the squatting boy she might be staring at. Anyway, the whole thing casts a pleasant nostalgic spell. Very nicely done.
    Regards,
    Andrew

    Hello Gert.
    I am glad to see your long series of old photos from yesteryear is still going strong. The photos bring a strong sense of nostalgia, that seems especially poignant in the case of Afghanistan. I suppose the donkey has been replaced by the Toyota Hilux or something similar. Here, the donkey seems to be acting as a kind of mobile market stall, with the produce in the buckets. It's actually hard to imagine people going about their modest lives in such peaceful settings nowadays. Very fine scanning to produce such a great image. And I'm glad your 'larger' images are not so large they do not fit in a browser window on a 24" monitor. It's plenty large enough to see all the detail here, the highlight of which is the nicely patterned rig on the donkey's rear end.
    Regards,
    Andrew

    Hi Neyvan
    That is surely a most spectacular view, with enormous depth and space. I love the contrasting, darker bit of rock formation in the foreground, against the hazy look of the more distant slopes and cliffs. Wonderful view, nicely presented.

    Hello Abmdsudi
    I appreciate very much this panoramic shot of the capital with the light and shade on the old buildings and the clear sky. Wonderful note - the first paragraph I could have written myself after visiting Burma nearly 40 years ago. Those original but crumbling neighbourhoods, weeds growing in cracks in road and footpath. And at night men working under ancient trucks cannibalising them for spare parts. Maybe some things have changed since then. I found the people to be wonderful. It's very sad that the regime is one of the worst in the world.

    Hello Dwaipayan
    I like your gallery a lot. I remember some of your photos from when I was more active. This one is so nicely composed and presented. It gives a quite breathtaking view of the scenery on both sides of the lake, and has great depth. I like the inclusion of the walker in the scene as it reminds us of the human activity which produced these cairns. Very well done.

    I like this kind of photo - shooting towards the late sun, with long shadows and long strips of bright sunlight, plus the silhouette of a human figure. Very nicely done and good note of explanation. I think this is better than the other photo.
