    Hi Piotr
    The air must be fresh, warmth in the light but cold subject well shot with superb balance of exposure, stretching off the view across the frame with the mountain range increases the sense of depth. The detail is excellent with wonderful interplay of colours, shadows and shades throughout. Such a pleasant snowy landscape nicely shot, Congrats

    It is wonder how they built those structures atop such high place, and just the sheer effort at getting the materials up there is mind boggling. The size of the rock formation shows the scale of this incredible religious & fort complex which you've captured nicely. Lighting, shadowed areas and tones are well managed adequately. Well done shot, Congrats and tfs.

    Hi Ourania
    A quite breathtaking sky so very well photographed and really love the split of colours which is very striking and your pp work fine too. This must have been very dramatic to see it all unfold. Well done

    Hi Danos
    A very peaceful & finely detailed coastal scape showing the real natural beauty with sense of isolation and interesting how the resort buildings on the slope blends in this natural setting and almost l camouflaged too. It's the stunning blue water that has really lifted the capture tenfold, and your exposure as always is flawlessly managed, clean and fresh looking spectacle with good sense of scale too. What a sight to behold, Congrats, TFS

    Hi Neyvan
    A nice piece of architectural detail and good idea homing in on the huge dome rather than including the whole building. Love the clarity and its natural colours and always a pleasure to view,, Very well done shot. Congrats

    Hi Neyvan
    You really are getting some mileage out of that beautiful architecture; it's dynamic with lovely colours and contrast which also exaggerates the proportions seen from good low viewpoint where depth and perspective are accentuated by the convergence with nice impact. But wonder why the sky looks a bit greenish on my screen! Excellent shot. Congrats

    Hi Miro
    An excellent composed aerial shot with the curves and green rectangle to anchor the eye, breaking the monotonous brownish tone. A shot offering a different perspective, feel of height and sense of expansive

    Hi Beverley
    Great wintry shot almost looks B&W but its not. I feel as though I am on that walk and I like the style of this with its lovely lead-in plus an invitation to explore further. Really strong perspective and great atmosphere, the colours and tones against the crisp white snow. Beautifully done shot, Congrats

    Hi Gert
    An effective minimalist subject with that solitude freighter on the horizon giving a good sense of scale of the wide river and excellent reference point on the foreground. A complete simplicity in this and yet it's scenic and pleasantly viewable, Congrats

    A great time to visit in winter when the temperature is mild i think, when the sunlight looks perfect to capture the colours bringing out the best in this beautiful human made historic structures. Lots of interest and thoughts here. Well done shot, Congrats.

    Hi John
    Home to roost that looks so busy but the airborne geese draw the eye as effective focus leading us into the wintering birds of such magnitude. Beautiful wildlife shot, the geese are clear and sharp and stand out so well against the superb and beautifully lit background. Indeed a noble effort that you've timed this impeccably, Congrats

    Hi Ruben
    A strong contrasty capture to look at with beautiful definition in the water, fantastic sheen and lovely the way you use the tree trunks as a frame but my eye gets drawn to the striking silhouetted & marooned cross. It's strange but highly dramatic and atmospheric at the same time looking at this, and credit to light handling that you've managed the harsh lighting pretty good, well toned & coloured to suit the subject matter. Thanks to the description. Congrats

    Hi Ana
    Superb daily life shot, the essence of the place where every space in the frame is utilised to its potential. This must be very interesting and very memorable experience, good or bad among the locals - a multi-portrait photo even the animals are the stars of the show. In fact all of them at each level, there is an interesting thing to observe. I love the atmosphere evoking the calm, relaxing and jovial mood. I would say it has a friendly air, composition, light and colors are amazingly there, transforming this to a fine day-to-day capture! Congrats

    That's a very sweeping beautiful coastal scape with its excellent composition & interest well positioned strategically to draw attention. It's exquisitely exposed here to bring out the best clarity, rich colors and contrast; the deep blue water and sight lighting are my fav here. Great wide view and always a pleasure to view.

    Hi Murat
    A very clever slim vertical format graces this beautiful image to match the overwhelming slim minaret. Love the viewpoint and juxtaposition for this engaging shot with the woman leads to focal of interest and loads of interesting detail in this lively effective picture. Well done shot, Congrats

    P/S Your latest comments is appreciated: the luxury of time was not on my side then, bearing in mind the difficult circumstances I was in - thus a split sec shot focusing on the eyes- facial expression is more than enough for me. as you have experienced too that at times we simply cant have everything that we have planned for but making the best out of that bit of brief moment is so much more rewarded & fruitful imho,

    It's a creative way to strike attraction using the effective 'eye' filtering thru the distant catchy highlights, which lends the shot perspective and depth. Just loved all the contrasting colours and the sumptuous detail. Lovely catch, Congrats
