    Hi,

    Saw this one at random display and was drawn to it. This take me back to the time when China when under such strick control by the Communistic Party. Amazing how the world has changed since than, to think that there was so much happening in this square, demonstration and history.

    Excellent night shot. How you get this shot without any people in it is amazing.

    Hi Kasia,

    Gorgeous photo of the sunset, love the POV and the zoom include the windmill and that hazy and misty quality, classic Dutch landscape and that big ball of sun dorminating the composition. Excellent quality maintaing the light and contrast, not over expose the light or under exposure the landscape.

    Sabaidee Abmdsudi,

    Beautiful photo that combined both wonderful architecture of the very traditional Tibetan style temple and the inclusion of the merchant in the foreground adds daily life gendre to the image, the motion blur of the monks walking in circle around the temple adds also the religious and cultural element to the image. The evening light adds also wonderful mood to the image.

    Namaste.

    Hey Noel,

    If you were to tell me this is taken somewhere in the Southeast Asia, I would have believe you. With all the greenery and trees, looking like the tropical area of Asia. The statues fit in so perfectly, give the environment that zen quality, bringing peace and calmness to the mind and spirit. Beautifully captured images with strong mood and serenity.

    thx

    Hello Angel.

    This is beautiful nature image, no monumental landscape, just very pure and simple woodland, a place to stroll and to relax and be in nature. I can almost here the sound of the stream trickling through the forest. Lovely light and a very pleasant day.

    very unique and strange looking architectures. and a relative strange place for lounging as well. First I thought it was sandy beach, but it is all stone. Anyway, the relaxing mood is very clear to see and a good quality photo.

    Jan,

    Another excellent shot with a slow shutter speed to capture the blue hour mood and light, the sheeps add nicely to the composition and some the blur one show motion and liveliness. I would have like that the fence is not that but that is me being picky.

    Hello Jan

    Beautiful sunset image, the windmill served as an icon for your country but the light piecing through the clouds make the image very special and it is a matter of being at the right place and also a good photography skill to capture that moment. Excellent quality and beautiful mood and atmosphere.

    Congratulations. A really good shot that is worth much more attention.

    Hello Garrit,

    Beautiful landscape in combination with the daily life image of the local people with their daily activities. Love the golden green field and the distance hills and forest. It's good to know there was still so much green on our planet earth.

    While most people probably think it is scary to camp in places that you can hear the wild animals at night, I think the opposite. It is such a pleasure to be among them. It seem all creatures has their own places. We don't bother them and they don't bother us. Off course occasionally we run into each other and conflict occurs and that what most people fear.

    Anyway, great shot here.

    Hello Angshuman,

    Beautiful image. I get short of breath just thinking about the elevation here. I remember crossing Chola pass in Nepal, I was so tire and I stop to breath for air but there was not enough oxygen in the air. I had a panic attack. I had to calm myself down.

    Buddhism is a more peaceful that dealt more with the inner self…this image transpire that feeling and also the climbing of the route give you that sense of accomplishment and self worth. I think that is part of the challenge and that why I did the 15 day hike in the Himalaya. It was challenging and it was rewarding at the end to know that we had taken it to the limit. We are stronger that we think. We just never let ourselves the opportunity to go such crazy things.

    Anyway, excellent shot and what a view to behold and cherish for a life time for anyone who has been there.

    Namaste,

    Hello Maria,

    Another good photo with the horses as the subject, I'm not good with horse, they are so big they actually scares me. Love the deep tone and color you have capture here and the low light with long shadow gives good contrast and brings out the light. The people in coordinated color work well and your fram with eh same colors completes the composition nicely.

    Have a good evening.

    Hi Aleksandar,

    This photo is simple, and nothing comes in between the man and the sea.

    It is straightforward. It is not sophisticated or complex.

    I would never have done this image.

    But I can really appreciate your own approach, and the feeling conveyed by such a candid depiction, as it forces the viewer to pay attention to this gentleman and coming up with an interpretation of what's going on. Not having read your note, I would have thought he was absorbed in a prayer, a meditating moment or a contemplative serenity.

    This image is simple, distant, not intrusive, but it catches the attention and communicate some kind of spirituality, even if he is busy fishing.

    A photo with lots of merit, probably because it leaves place for interpretation, for the contrast between the humble man facing an endless sea and the impression of remoteness and detachment.

    Cheers!

    André

    Salut Magaly,

    Hallucinant village aux allures médiévales, dont le paysage semble lui servir d'écrin.

    Belle lumière, couleurs saturées mais sans débordement, un ciel dramatique à souhait, c'est du tout beau. Je trouve la composition efficace, avec un bon ratio village/paysage/ciel.

    Travail admirable.

    Hi Kari,

    I guess that I will have to join our colleagues perception and reveal without surprises that I also thought that your thumbnail was presenting a volcano. Now, I can appreciate the optical illusion and realize that it is a light show.

    Quite interesting conditions here, with the top of the mountain fully covered in a dense cloud/fog, while the middle shines under different conditions, like if their was two different micro-climates, layer wise.

    Unusual presentation, captured at the right moment - these phenomenon don't last forever, at least not with that intensity.

    Cheers!

    Ciao Cristina,

    I like your note, it made me laugh.

    As much as I am passionate about photography, my camera remains in my bag most of the time under such conditions, even while being in iconic places.... I just feel depressed and uninspired, knowing that my shots will not convey any special appeal, as without light, there is no photography.

    But you know what, I think that in some circumstances, the subject might suit the crappy weather, like this one you've nailed down. Look, the sky refuses to cooperate in any possible way, but this particular landscape do match the rainy and sad conditions, almost gaining a dramatic aura - like in a Ingmar Bergman movie... The Seventh Seal...

    despite any favorable conditions, you have achieved good contrasts, a wide grayscale range, and an interesting transparency on the shallow water that might have not been possible, should the light would have been different.

    Not a fan of black and white, but this shot has a vintage look that I can't explain, not coming from the subject itself, but from the finish, the impression.

    Quirky title.

    Cheers!

    André
