    Hi Ney
    I doubt anybody else has posted a photo like this one from Oslo :)

    so i'm glad you posted it here!
    its a fine and strange color for a facade, but its attractive. Kind of a soft lime color.

    excellent clarity and sharpness in this photo. thanks for showing us something new in Oslo
    cheers

    Hi Luciano
    it says you didn't use flash here, but it does actually look like you used flash.

    what impresses me most is the overall sharpness and clarity of the shot. it looks great!

    smooth textures all around,
    nice shot

    Hi Brian
    awesome hdr type of effect and look here.
    but its the overall city view that makes it work so well.

    I like how the frame is filled up. The frame goes up, it goes down, and it goes across.

    Man, i have to go back to London!
    love the sharpness and details you show us.

    Hi Herve
    love all of your photos, they have an HDR type of feel to them - perhaps they are hdr?

    this is an excellent example of how to effective use shutter speed and movement in a scene.

    looking at it, its hard NOT to smile and enjoy it.
    creative idea that was so well achieved.
    cheers

    Hi Cagla
    yes, we were in Istanbul for about 4 days.
    loved the city, its so much different than anything we have here in Canada! For that reason alone it was a wonderful visit! The people were very friendly and helpful :)

    as for this photo, its a sweet example of how to effectively contrast light and shadow, light and dark lines.

    well chosen all around! excellent post

    Hello Gerrit
    superb shot of the antelopes in their natural habitat. It captures the real mood and beauty of seeing them in the wild rather than in captivity. Gloriously sharp and a golden light that is just captivating.

    Hello Christiane
    I remember watching these amazing 'planes whilst in Greece during the terrible fires that ravaged the islands in 2007. I never managed to get a superb shot like this though. This is just perfect it captures the movement and daring of these super brave pilots. Stunning image!

    Hello Ann
    I do like this! It is a simple mix of elements and yet it is quite irresistible and beautifully balanced. I love the enticing lines the fence on the left make and the rustic textures of the old barn, but it is the leaden sky that gives it atmosphere and a strange beauty. Arty and wonderful!

    Hi Serghei
    cool shot indeed!
    love how the slow shutter has created this type of psycho effect :)

    I feel as if i have taken some drugs before viewing the photo :)

    Will you be meeting Jason in Russia? Hope so!

    Hi Gigi
    are those people in the fields? or are they scarecrows?
    I'm thinking they're scarecrows right!

    this is a wonderful collection of color!
    too bad I can't smell the scnee :) I bet it smells nice

    lovely color palette.
    wish I were here to capture this one myself

    enjoy your day

    Hi Didi
    I see you have a collection of these going now!
    nice to see them all here.

    this one may be my favorite of the bunch, composition wise. I like the large area located in the 1/3 position on the right, the part thats closest to us.
    from there it has depth to the left and to the right on the angle.

    nice shot
    Enjoy your vacation!

    Hello Craig
    this place looks amazing and obviously much fun too. I love this blue hour image it has a real zing about it and as usual is an immaculate execution and presentation.

    On my recent visit to the London Olympic Park it was a rare warm day and lots of children were playing in the fountains there. I only walked past with my camera around my neck, but was still accosted by a security guard who warned me about taking photographs of the children. One fellow photographer there had all his images viewed on his camera just to make sure he had not taken any of the kids. What sort of world are we living in now!! - Crazy!!

    Have a great weekend - B.

    Hi Nicolas
    ah yes, a classic Denmark type of scene here.

    it stands out so well in your gallery, and looking at it now its easy to see why.

    the reds and blues work well, as does the tight framing/cropping.
    looks great

    haha...you're making me hungry here!
    wanting to eat some as well.

    I like the 3 part set up, this way we can get a good sense of the cooking process with the different views.

    Hi Juliette
    thats beautiful!
    looking at it now, i can ALMOST imagine how it looked when the castle was built in its prime.
    I get the feeling not much has changed.
    must have been impossible for attackers to get up to the castle with that steep cliff.
    a perfect Castle-location.

    wonderful photo for its subject, lighting, colors and exposure.

    this looks so beautiful and in such a glorious setting too! The detailing and aspect is so immaculate and I can see why this would be visible from miles around. It is a real beauty of a cathedral and your POV and execution here do it full justice. Stunning!

    now THATS what i call blue water!
    wow, it looks so bright and clean.

    it would be fun to get into the small rubber boat and cruise into those caves.
    makes me wonder how far down deep does the water go inside?

    fun shot, wish I were here!
