    Hi Nicolas
    That's a very extensive view and is really made all the more beautiful by those fantastic rays of light. Really nicely captured

    Hi Rita
    Very nice minimalist shot that emphasises the lonely location of this castle. The building being so small in the frame brings attention to its unique location

    Hi Rob
    Another beautiful graphic architectural shot, the more I see of this place the more o see it as an icon of design, which I'd never considered before. The beautiful blue sky is once again per.

    Hello György,
    So you had to go all the way to Brussels to catch a glimpse of a different culture. Weren't you scared? The could all have been potential terrorists. ;-)
    It's a good photo and a fine environment, a nicely dressed orchestra and a lively crowd of onlookers-
    I wish you a fine Sunday. May I suggest that you spend the day on a long trek in the countryside, far away from any polling station. :-(
    Best wishes,
    Gert

    A magnificent composition of soft shapes, light, haze and mild colours. The golden cloud and the rays are fantastic. Very well spotted and perfectly handled.

    Hello Benny,
    This is a delightful photo of a group of merry young women looking like a local version of Spice Girls. Their bright colours look great against the dark green background. Their hijabs are obviously much more a fashion than a religious expression but they could probably still scare many European politicians.
    I saw this photo yesterday before you changed the title. I was very upset that the first title didn't refer to The Beatles ;-)
    Have a nice weekend,

    Hi Benny. A happy image and a timely one in these times of Islamophobia. Here in Australia almost fifty percent of our citizens feel that Muslim intake should be curtailed and that Muslim Australians should be searched and questioned more than other citizens. I am afraid such a policy would radicalise the otherwise peaceful individual if he or she sees and experiences unjust treatment. Ignorance is exploited by politicians when most people have no idea what Islam is about and how much it has contributed to the betterment of humanity. Beautiful colours and striking gestures. Regards. Klaudio.

    Ciao Cristina. Nice to see your work once more. Even in thumbnail format the image demands attention thanks to the dramatic contrasts between the building in full sun and those in the shade. Excellent DOF and timing as the man is about to light the cigarette. Best wishes. Klaudio.

    Hi Barnabas
    Beautiful boat and great red color in the sail. We have track ships festivals in Ireland, in Dublin and Waterford but the ships tend to be more galleon style, not this viking style. Ironic add they are both viking cities! Interesting post, thanks
    All the best

    what? Granada? I thought it never rained in Andalucia! :)
    I am just reading a novel set in Granada in 1492, at the end of the Moorish domination - well, I read many similar novels and each time it's like I am back there, amazed by the sound of water in the gardens, the smell of jasmine, under the sun, up and down the Albaicin...
    anyway - I like very much the calm play of the various patterns - the stripes of the umbrella, the chequered floor, the lacy stockings.
    this is one of those pictures where we can read something into a moment captured by the camera - a happy coincidence that you were quick to capture with your camera :)

    Hi Carlo
    These colours are really striking and there is a beautiful effect from the light. The graphic simplicity of the subject really allows the focus to be on the color light and shadow

    dear Bulent,

    I usually don't follow much nature photography but this forest is truly mesmerizing and very much reminiscent of the images shown in Jackson's movies. The luscious green mossy undergrowth looks soft like a carpet - an image that would look perfect on a wall, as large, true-to-life poster :)

    Nice black and white urban scene and I really like the contrast in this. Great timing of the click to have the man placed on the point of the shadow

    Hi Ken
    This is the last thing i would expect to find in an Egyptian style building and a complete first for me to see stained glass in this style. I imagine finding something like this, and indeed photographing it, must be a very cool feeling. Fascinating subject

    Hi Serge
    Incredible light and what a beautiful scene. That light had given the colors and textures a brilliant fairytale feeling, helped of course by the architecture. Really nice moment to catch
