    Hi Stephen
    yes, looking at it I thought right away this must be a stitching of images because of the distortion.

    I was right :)

    I remember you saying a long time ago you're not a big fan of distortions, but at some point you have to just go with what you have right.

    Personally, i enjoy such distortions. It gives a creative and unique view that our human eye cannot produce.

    for example, the distortion of the chairs in the fg.

    love the overall balance and symmetry, the colors, the exposure, the curve..its perfect!
    job well done
    cheers

    Hi Magaly
    aren't clouds amazing!
    I've always been a big fan of clouds, and how they can turn a good photo scene into a great scene.

    in this one, they seem to climb forever and ever into the heavens above.

    just too bad for the electric pole in the middle! haha

    nice shot
    enjoy your day

    Hi Lisa
    one of the best things about TE is how the site delivers us knew and interesting info about far away places.

    for example this one here.

    Seriously speaking, how many people outside of Australia know about this story, this place, and these people? I would bet extremely low numbers of people!!!

    But thanks to you, and thanks to TE we can learn about it now.

    excellent backdrop with the grey brooding skyline, and the horizontal light browns along the bottom contrast it so well.

    nice shot indeed! great story once again.

    have a great day

    Hi Daniel
    another excellent shot from Porto.
    I totally agree with you, getting lost in these streets is the best way for sure.

    lots of history rugged charm here.
    excellent point of view to capture the streets and buildings, top to bottom there's lots to view.

    well done

    Hi Janusz
    again, these mountains provide an excellent source for a subject!

    I can view these everyday.

    good for you to go hiking here, it certainly paid off in the end.

    seems like you're on top of the world here, just you and some fresh air :)
    excellent shot

    Hi John
    looking at this building closely, i bet there are some sweet views from that balcony, as that water on the right has some pretty attractive colors to it.

    speaking of colors, yellows and blues almost always blend seamlessly together, proof again right here.

    there are many smaller, finer architectural details on the facade that demand attention - but only to the keep observer, which i like.

    beautiful color palette, sharpness and clarity.
    well shot on this side angle

    enjoy your day

    Hi Gert
    see?
    didn't I tell you!!!

    if you wait, they will come :)

    the lady is wearing a shirt the exact same dark blue/grey color as thats advertised on the glass wall.

    if you had waited longer, i bet a woman with a red and white spotted coat would sit down on the other cushion to match the other advertisement!
    haha

    fun photo, well spotted

    Hi Rob
    I remember taking this same bridge.
    never thought I'd be able to get a photo of it like this though.

    smart use of blacks and whites, with the splash of red.
    excellent depth and curves too.
    creative and effective all at the same time.

    Hi Gosia
    easy to see why people have been enjoying this one!
    stunning clarity and depth.
    Thats quite the lens you've got with the 20mm F1.7!

    amazing how much light is obtained with the 1.7

    sharpness is perfect, lots to see even in this dark light.
    beauty!
