    Hi Chris
    awesome photo here.
    and you're so correct, this really does show off the steepness of the seating arrangement.

    It would be a real thigh burner to walk up to find your seat :)

    can you imagine how this place looked when it was new!!!

    thanks for taking this angled shot, it has worked out well for you, and now for us
    cheers

    Hi Costantino
    now this is surely a boat to photograph :)
    lots of textures, lots of grunge, and lots of colors to please the photographic soul :)

    Marina's alway have something to offer, and i'm glad you found this beauty.

    Hi Ney
    yes, a beautiful city indeed!
    I only wish we had more time and better weather to explore it better.

    You had fantastic weather.
    this shows off Bergen quite well.
    lots of depth, lots of color, and we can recognize some of the buildings even from up here.

    fun views
    cheers

    Hi Ricardo
    first of all...stunning photograph!
    the overall colors and exposure are terrific.
    the light on that stonewall is A+, as are the clouds.
    and the homes add a touch of old' time charm.

    so many wonderful points add up to make a smart looking shot

    Hi Ryszard
    I like how the focal point is offset, its not in the middle - a small shift to the right has worked well composition wise.

    too bad they couldn't dress up the facade a little more, its the same pattern over and over :)

    but there are fine small details to be enjoyed and appreciated.
    enjoy your day

    Hi Ourania
    when i scroll down the page, the reds and blues are in total harmony.
    love the way they look and seem to move on the waters surface.

    you could have even left the boat OUT of the photo and we'd still be happy with the lower half :)

    Hi Murat
    of all the times i've been to Las Vegas, I've never taken this photograph.

    maybe I should the next time i'm here.
    love the large signs on each side, and the long tunnel top.

    Hi Ike
    its always fun going to the Marina right!?
    look at the varying types of photos you can capture.

    They kind of look like weeds coming out of the grass...but good weeds :)

    fun composition and idea - why not!

    Hi Gigi
    maybe its because I live in Canada - but over here in the Western World, we know NOTHING about this town of Lucca! Never heard of it before until TE.
    Perhaps its more commonly known for Europeans?

    if the town looks anything like this in real life, then sign me up!

    lucky for you the stone were a bit wet in the lower fg, that helped out a bit.

    lovely combination of blues and yellows.
    classic Italian architecture and green shutters.
    Love this one for many reasons.

    cheers

    Hi Stephen
    this one is all about the POV.
    If you had taken it from street level it just wouldn't have the same impact.
    its as if you're a cop on a stake-out :)

    love seeing the old historic buildings, the balconies, and the street side cafe.
    excellent post

    Hi Malgo
    oh i'm so jealous of this one.
    We didn't go out onto the open waters like you did.
    and we missed out on a photo opportunity.

    wonderful composition with the city in the bg.
    we don't get to see the buildings from this pov too often.

    A+ from me!

    Hi Daniel
    you're giving me ideas as to which cities to visit in Portugal!

    you could have easily left OUT the sky in this one and it would be just as nice.

    the overall feel is a scene that looks like its from the 1970's.

    cool post, i'll make note of this town

    Hi Phillipe
    great looking stain glass photo.
    what makes it work so well is the overall contrast from the dark stone walls surrounding it.
    its quite rough and old, but the glass looks so pristine and new.
    cool post!

    Hi Nicolas
    so you turned this one upside down did you?
    or is it just my mind playing tricks on me?

    what ever the case may be, its an effective photo as its a mind bender :)

    we don't get to see these colors too often either.

    Hi Ecmel
    so these are residences? locals and families live here all year round?

    from this vantage point it looks like a castle or some sort of fortress - not so much local homes.

    you'd think they would want to introduce some other color than brown/red haha

    but its a perfect photo for TE, as we can learn from this subject and about its history/culture.

    wonderful post

    Hi Danos
    wow, thats quite the history!
    I would love to see how it looked in its prime way back in the 1400's!!!!

    hard to believe it was a hotel...so that must mean its very clean and well kept in todays time.

    Hard to tell how large it is from this distance, but it's certainly a place i'd like to check out myself.
    excellent TE post

    Hi Maciej
    for some reason, seeing these classic scenes never ever gets old.
    I could view these every day and never tire of them.

    normally i prefer clouds in the sky, but when the sky is this royal blue it looks sweet as well.

    excellent classic pose, and the exposure is spot on.

    super post!
    first of all, that charming white boat stands out so well against everything else.
    and then the tall building in the bg takes 2nd notice.

    you can keep posting these everyday!

    wonderful to get a peek at the insides of the abandoned home isn't it.

    did you take a seat and stay a while? haha

    looking at it makes me wonder what went on here.
    most people may find this ugly, i honestly find it quite beautiful, interesting and mysterious.

    Hi Mariusz
    what? where are the pretty ladies in this one? haha..just bugging you :)

    I really like this royal blue skyline, it contrasts well against the sandstone colors of the buildings.
    and the flowers pop with their red/violet colors too.

    excellent sense of depth with the separation from fg/bg subjects.

    looking forward to whats next
