    Hello Sergio,
    It is hard to tell what it looks like behind these modern buildings and inside the apartments, but it certainly looks very nice from a distance so if this renewal helps to lower the crime rate everyone should be happy. It is a very colourful view and the surroundings look nice. You show this urban change well in a sharp and bright and nicely balanced photo.
    Kind regards,

    Hello,
    The hat could hurt the woman if they tried to get any closer (which I think they did).
    It's a nice photo and a bit amusing.

    A nice view from below of the rock full of birds. There is a fine contrast between the dark rock and the bright sky with crowds of birds on the ground and some flying.

    Hello Christiane,
    It's interesting to see the empty countryside starting immediately outside the town. The red and orange roofs create fine contrasts to the green and yellow fields. You had a very nice light in the morning.

    Hello Serge,
    The attractive and well known skyline is nicely complemented with the boats and their masts rising as some other skyscrapers. The photo is well treated with an expressive sky and fine reflections.

    Hello Philippe,
    I am sure the church and its solid tower were the main objects for this photo, but however attractive they are I must admit my attention is just as much caught by the very carefully cut bushes along the road. Together these features make for a nice view with well managed light and fine colours.
    Kind regards,

    Hi Ryszard
    how does a building so old still stand today? thats incredible. I'm sure its been remodeled and cared for, but still, thats amazing.

    its a picturesque scene with the puffy clouds, blue skies, lively flowers in full colors, and of course the church itself is very photogenic. lovely shot! looks great. cheers

    Hi Murat
    yes, that is very funny. sometimes we don't see people in our photos until after we take them :)

    to me, this is a wonderful scene. its rustic and real. its got that industrial feel to it. love the trains just sitting there at the station. the long skinny patch of green grass adds alot too. I'm sure the couple would love to have this copy :) excellent compo and subject material.
    cheers

    Hi Jorge
    well, clearly you made it back to the group, or perhaps the group found you :)

    this is a very attractive scene with the tall palms and the elegant architecture. I like how the scene has so much height, and the colors/sky stand out so well. beautiful photo from top to bottom. cheers

    Hi Pavle
    oh this is a sweet shot. lots of depth. love the addition of the brown/yellow colors in the bg to contrast the mostly green colors. really like the 5 posts up front, and everything goes back in a straight line. well captured scene.

    Hello Ben,

    I was only on the Qatar Airport. If I had longer break I could see something more, but I had only two hours. Interesting interior of this museum, I suppose this is the most important building in Qatar.

    Indeed, I.M. Pei is 100 hundred years old!! Happy birthday! I saw his building in Boston, not much pride as it is known as the “Plywood Palace’’. And recently the Bank of China building in Hongkong, with two masts reaching 367.4 m .

    Hi Lars
    this place has a real haunting look and feel to it.
    I wonder how it is at night.
    is it possible to go up that tower? It looks like there's a platform up there for viewing. wonderful scene with the trees and stream, and how the area seems to be protected and guarded. still looks scary though haha

    Hi Krzysztof
    now that is quite the interior! I don't think i've seen one like this before. are most Orthodox churches similar on the inside?

    bold color choices, they stand out for sure. wonderful exposure and details you captured. looks great. cheers

    Hello György,
    I won't say a word about their dress, I promise.
    This is all about the light, the well captured skin tones and the fine contrasts of light and shadows in the nearest guy's face.

    Hello bev,
    Normally I would probably be expected to prefer the WS (people!), but although that is also a good photo I think you made the right choice to show this one. The small ripples in the water and the pastel colours of the fields and other vegetation are just beautiful. I love the contrast of the dark sky and the yellow field. In case you got wet later at least you got yourself two fine photos before that.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hi Abmdsudi
    your photos are making me want to travel to India again!
    the bg scenery is amazing, its as if they live in a city where it has recently been bombed! so much character and and course the woman in red/blue is the star here! love the blue draping over her shoulder, and having her face covered is also fantastic. wonderful hip shot, perhaps yours BEST!

    Hi Gy
    in the WS, is that your dog? thats a great photo too, as if the dog is checking out the city view too :)

    before and after storms are great times to take photos, here we have more proof of that.

    the angled light striking the landscape is precious.
    and it gives the sense of movement as well. wonderful to see the hilltops spread across the frame to create those shapes. beauty!

    Hi Philippe
    I like these Old churches, especially ones like this which are not as GRANDE as the Cathedrals. although smaller, they carry so much charm and history. It would be great to see that Bell you mentioned.

    my favorite feature is the black looking tower top. excellent subject for posting. cheers
