    Hi Daniel
    all I need in the morning is some cold cereal :)

    I'm sure our friend Gert will be disappointed there's no people in this scene :)

    I think the lack of people adds emotion and mood, the same way people ADD emotion....its just different.

    lovely shot

    Hi Gerrit
    I wanted to get to this photo yesterday but i ran out of critiques.

    this may be the best of the bunch from Uganda that you've posted so far.

    the chaotic organisation is everywhere.
    lots of traffic, lots of foot traffic, lots of congestion.

    the photo shows that well.
    lots to keep my eyes busy too.
    cool post
    cheers

    Hi Rob
    fun shot indeed.
    looking at it, my eyes are tracking left right up and down. lots to see in this frame.

    I'm certainly not a fan of the fashion world, so i didn't even know about the store closing down.

    funny and clever how the mannequins look lined up at the top.

    and eye catcher for sure

    Hi Serge
    great looking shot.
    the photo looks attractive because yellows and blues always blend so well, and its naturally beautiful to the human eye.
    really easy to enjoy this one.
    good sense of depth too.

    Hi Gert
    this reminds me of something we encountered dozens and dozens of times while traveling throughout Europe...people walking around trying to see tourists roses.

    Even while we sat at restaurants people would approach tourists and attempt to see roses...we got pretty sick and tired of it quickly.

    not sure what was going on here, but somehow I think its a little bit different of a situation.

    funny that the guy is wearing a flowered shirt too.
    brings back alot of memories here.

    cheers

    Hi Ike
    yes, i remember this display of people from the other post you showed us.

    I wonder if they light up at night?
    for some reason when i look at this shot with all the birds, i'm waiting and waiting for the birds to move around :)

    but they don't!

    ah yes, the Frank Gehry building!
    Can you believe I've never photographed this building yet in all the times i've been to Las Vegas!

    looks like the building is melting in the hot Las Vegas sun :)

    fun shot, excellent subject

    Hi Abmdsudi
    you were right about this being a perfect subject to photograph.

    it took me awhile to find the lock too.
    really like how you composed the scene so that the rickshaw covers the entire length of the frame.

    and that wall is fantastic!
    wicked cool seat too.
    great post my friend

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    This is a bit like your "shoot-from-the-hip" photos, the main difference being that children can act spontaneously even when they know about the camera. Those who only care for "perfect" photos will probably never experience this kind of joy among children, or the personal joy of catching something as lively and completely natural as this. I hope, for the sake of justice, that her brother was also given a photo of his own.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Rosemary,
    I think I have told you before of the utter contempt I feel for those who have these magnificent animals, and many others, killed for ridiculous "medicines" or handles of daggers etc. My anger makes it difficult to comment this from a strictly photographic point of view, but it is certainly a fine close-up. The conversion to B&W makes it look like a shot from 100 years ago when elephants roamed freely (although always threatened by stupid trophy-hunters).
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Swapan,
    This is an excellent composition which you have given a dramatic appearance through the close-up of the wll positioned boats and the dark sky. The impressively shaped clouds mean a lot for the composition, as well as the subdued colours. This photo discloses a considerable artistic talent.

    Hi Beverley
    haha...its so funny that you captured the mans face in the side mirror!

    not sure if that was intentional or just pure luck and perfect timing :)

    they don't make cars like these anymore.
    I was just commenting to Ray, that i'll probably be going to a car show today :)

    so its fun to look at these car shots now. gives me lots of inspiration and excitement!

    thanks for this one

    Hello Wolfgang,
    I think they were making jokes about the pleasure of having a big apartment in one of the nicest locations in the city. Or pretending to be the president talking to the masses. You captured a nice and joyful atmosphere in an elegant and colourful place.

    Hi Ray
    there's a car show in town today, I will probably go check it out...should be a collection of hot rods and classics...nothing wrong with that!

    this car here looks like it could easily still be an everyday drive.

    sleek, slender, love the black and chrome. this too is a classic.

    Hello Eleu,
    The butterfly is lovely and you found it in a perfect place. The twigs by themselves create a superb pattern and the blurred background is so incredibly well matching. All the ingredients of this composition fit so well together.
