    Hi Recep
    great looking street photo.
    this one is all about the lady with the umbrella.

    makes for a great focal point.
    love the rough textures of the architecture too.

    Hi Mariusz
    Its so much fun seeing these scenes from Poland, knowing that i've been here myself is quite amusing and its interesting to see how locals like yourself view it, compose it and photograph it.

    your shot of it here is quite elegant, its smartly composed in the vertical stance - my favorite.

    It does however have a greyish tone to it. But i personally have been having issues with TE and its colors, so maybe your own copy on your computer is more colorful - thats what happens to me alot when i post a photo here.

    Again, nice to see that you have the time to take your family 'home' again - you seem to be on the road all over europe working.

    thanks for this elegant postcard
    cheers

    Hi Angel
    what impressed me right away with this photo is the overall exposure levels, its picture perfect.

    the white facade in the bg would be so easily over exposed in this warm light, but you nailed it!

    love the blue skyline and the elegant light fixture too, lots to admire with this one

    Hello Craig
    I expect this man thought you were from the Turkish Welfare and checking on this old man and his claim for benefit! It makes for yet another Macjake photo-shoot where you manage to p*iss off the locals. Keep 'em coming I love 'em. Lots of character and another close escape for you....!

    Hi Serge
    Good for you to take some time out of your day and visit a local fruit market in Rome.

    this is something I should do a little bit more.

    there's probably a good mixture of locals and tourists here as well.

    good lighting despite having the netting above blocking most of the sun, it's still well lit.
    fun shot with lots of activity
    cheers

    Hello Carlo
    thanks for this dedication. I do love Igor Mitoraj's work and seeing this particular one in this setting is wonderful as it is so different to the similar statue at Canary Wharf in London. No less impact though and you have captured it beautifully.

    Thanks again - I love it!

    signature imagery from you and this one is quite special too! I love your POV and the way you have controlled the full sun is amazing - bet you had spotted retinas after taking this one :-). It makes for a powerful and effective piece of imagery.

    Hi Ryszard
    nice to see a town where the tallest structure is the old cathedral, albeit wrapped up! Lots of history here and it looks idyllically peaceful with the fisherman adding to the mood. WWII destroyed so many beautiful towns and it is so pleasing to see them restored like this.

    Hi Costantino
    a very relaxed feeling here.
    this is how I envision my future after retirement perhaps :)

    just spending my day chilled and relaxed, no pressure!

    the boat in the bg gives a good secondary subject to focus on too.
    enjoy your day

    another fine example of whats out there still waiting to be explored!

    never heard of this place before seeing your photos.
    great brown/yellows mixed with blues.

    excellent light and exposure too, nothing wrong with this one! looking forward to seeing more as well.

    Hi Rosemary

    great shot!
    I have to admire photographers who do these types of scenes.
    I still have to 'train' my eye to see such scenes and notice the value of them.

    For this one, its all about the facial expression.
    the lean to his right and the grimace is awesome - from our point of view anyways!

    nice shot, great catch!

    Hi Silvio
    you're showing me some places in Italy that i've never heard of before, and thats a good thing - always fun to learn right!

    I'm no expert, but it looks like a classic Old Historic Italian Cathedral that we've seen in many photos here, including in your gallery too.

    beautifully rustic.
    funny to see the street on the far left with the car passing by - i bet it wasn't like that when it was built! haha

    excellent light and color in the sky

    Hi Angshu
    yes I have to agree that the insides of these mosques are quite something aren't they!

    and of course the upwards POV is the best way to show it off in all its glory.

    attractive shot, it stands out well in your gallery.
    lots to like here with the colors and architectural style.
    see you around

    Howdy Desert Fox

    This could only be from the viewfinder of your camera sunbeam - true "Cowlingesque" imagery that is a prime example of your lateral thinking. Clever in concept and execution, not sure what "tandem" in Russian means, I know there was a lot of controversy over the Putin/Medvedev tandem with them swapping roles in 2011, but I doubt that is what is being referred to here! Perhaps Sir Serghei can proffer some explanation.

    Lots of colour and character here - like it!

    Captain Pugwash!

    Your weather is making headlines here - you getting a soaking I understand!

    a beautifully wide open view this and it works so enticingly. The light divides the shot but also provides depth and a compelling simplicity to this image. An eye-catching take on this TE favourite.

    Hello John
    this did bring a smile to my face! You have to admire any man that can manage to get in touch with his feminine side and not mind who sees him or photographs him. A real character shot this and captured perfectly and completely off-guard.

    It looks like Dolly Partem needs a shave!!
