    Hi Mesut
    wonderful post! maybe one of my favorites of yours.
    its very close-in, we get to examine the man's expression and look very well!

    and i like how there are no disruptive elements in the bg or on the sides.

    do you know if he is still alive today?
    wonderful post
    cheers

    Hi Daniel
    yes, i think i remember seeing this one on FB.
    out of all the photos we see of Stockholm, i've never seen one taken from this exact pov before.
    excellent choice to have the city set back into the bg of the image.

    lovely light, colours, and especially the compo!
    well done

    Hi Nicolas
    excellent title choice for your photo, i would never have thought of that one!

    this one really stands out well in your gallery, the caramel colours go so well with the whites. the lighting is fantastic as well, so much to like and appreciate.

    Hi Ourania
    we all love reflection photos here on TE :)
    and like alot of TE members, it was here on this website where i really learned about them for the first time.

    smart idea to leave the sky OUT, and just focus in on the boat and the water. excellent wiggle and movement to distort the natural image in the water too. what's not to like!

    wonderful perspective and angles going on with this one.
    fine contrasting colour tones as well.
    everything about the composition fits well, it suits the eye and looks very natural.

    Hi Serge
    love this one.
    anytime we can get to see such rooftops and chimneys, you have to go for it!

    really like the angled grey rooflines mixed with the splashes of red brick. excellent depth to the scene as well.

    Hi Noel
    this is a beautiful scene my friend!
    Not sure how you could possibly improve upon it.
    love the grass, the tall trees, the lighting/colours, and of course the monuments you speak of as well.

    its the total atmosphere and moody of the shot that i like most, seems so peacefull and tranquil. Well done.

    PS
    you really should take a look at my newest post, i dedicated it to you.

    Hi Pedro
    theres something so photogenic about these aqueducts. as Ike mentioned in his note, same thing with Windmills.

    I like the elongated look to the scene, and the mountains in the bg are a fine way to complete the image.
    nice shot

    Hi Philippe
    impressive older amphitheatre for sure.
    I wonder how it looked when it was first built hundreds and hundreds of years ago, i bet it wasn't this pristine looking :)

    too bad its used for Bull Fighting today, as an animal lover I think its horrible, and I ALWAYS cheer for the Bull to stab the man.

    where did you take this photo from? its an excellent pov, showing the total circumference. lovely shot and well detailed

    HI Pavle
    lots to like about this one, i always like the scenes where we have the 2 opposite subjects like this one.
    basically its old vs new with the cars and the horse pulling the older vehicle.
    I wonder what the smell is like for the rider :)

    Hi Krzysztof
    4000 posts! how on earth do you do that????
    Thats very impressive indeed, congrats.

    I wonder how this castle looked when it was finally constructed many years ago. Was it just as pretty and photogenic back then too, or was it more rustic looking.

    such a pretty scene with the castle situated in the bg with the forest in the fg. lovely shot

    Hi John
    too bad your previous dog photo wasn't better received points wise, I really enjoyed that photo you took :) It deserved many more than 8 pts!

    as for this photo here, it reminds us that SUMMER is around the corner, not quite yet, but its coming at some point.

    I liked your comment in the note "bright and warm summer morning" - thats what i'm waiting for indeed.

    I don't have a green thumb, and I don't know species of plants/trees, but those 4 brightly coloured ones on the ground act as focal points. My eyes are drawn to them right away.

    second would have to be the charming old home and its window shutters and rustic rooftop. nicely composed as its suits the eye very well.

    PS
    Back from our mini trip to Vegas and 2 National Parks in Utah, hoping to post a photo today or tomorrow

    Hi Huub
    from your note i get the impression that not everyone is in love with this building design as you are! I get the feeling its a controversial piece.

    there are certainly many reasons why to like it and not like it. Me, i like it. Its stands out well against the more traditional pieces in the bg.

    and of course the yellow and blues stand out so well together. creative composition with the boldness of the top 2/3's

    Hi John
    even in December this place looks warm and inviting :)
    I wonder if its unusual for this place to NOT have snow.
    anytime you can fit in a bridge like that in your composition, its going to be a winner :)
    lovely side lighting, depth, while being full of charm.

    Hi Gerrit
    so these really are slave houses from the past?
    now turned into places for tourists?
    how strange is that?
    is it just me or does that seem a little weird and distasteful, not sure.
    but in terms of photography, its hard to resist the colours in the water, the blue sky and the puffy clouds. the composition works very well.

    now thats a rooftop right!
    funny looking little Hut, but it works so well as i'm sure people notice it right away and want to check it out.
    obviously the blues and orange/reds work in perfect harmony in terms of the photo itself.

    Hi Aleksander
    reminds me alot of a similar scene thats well photographed in Gdansk.

    as i'm looking around in the photo, i must say that the door on the far left is a 10 out of 10. Wish I had a door like that :)

    always fun to see the colourful tenement homes.

    now THAT is a cloud formation!
    its not everyday we get to see something quite like this.
    very strange natural progression of the clouds, but it looks fantastic in a photo.
