    Hi Carlo
    A very nice landscape with muted tones and colors, a great idea to frame it inside this rugged stone arch. You included a perfect amount of the arch so that we can see it and it frames the image well, but it doesn't intrude on the landscape. Very nicely balanced shot.
    Cheers

    Hey Jason,
    So you're handing out good weather? Just as well I brought this bucket. And this trailer. Ad this medium sized truck. Oh, and this l tanker.... :)
    This is a fine view of your beautiful city, the cluster of skyscrapers being one thing that draws me like a moth to a lightbulb, I love how American cities have these clusters of high rise. The shape of the man is brilliant too, it makes it seem like a religious statue in a temple viewing over the ancient lands, but it's not that ancient, it's a modern city. A great contrast of moods and a great way to make us jealous if your fine autumn temperatures.
    Thanks for sharing, I'll send you some nice dark blustery evenings in return.
    Cheers

    P.S. the weather monster on our local tv station said Ireland is likely to get the worst winter, in ten years this year, might be a good chance to get some snow shots with luck!

    Hi Paja,
    I like that school building, it's very modern and looks more like a museum than a school! The bridge is a nice leading line and stands out in fine contrast to the deep greens of the surround vegetation, very nice presentation.

    Hi Ourania,
    The light is again beautiful in this, the dappled effect on the land looks superb and the active sky has a perfect combinatn of clouds and vibrant blue. The tall masts of the larger boat break the horizon very well, and stand out great against the white background there. Lovely silvery reflections in the water.

    Hi Kryzsztof
    Anoth fine view of this great mansion. It's colors are stunning, and this lake is so well placed. The sky behind is wonderfful. It is kind of sad to see the building kind of ruined, but at the same time it makes this among my favourite subjects.

    Hi Brian,
    Amazing that this little church has survived so very long undiscovered, and great to hear ts art survive too, so much from those times has been lost. What is really great is that here were, many centuries later and it allows you to compose it in this beautiful warm autumnal shot, a charming seasonal view of the place. I'd say this place looks brilliant in winter snow too, or in fact in all seasons. Great place and photo, cheers.

    Hi Malgo,
    Really excellent detail captured in this fine painting, and you have added really nice interest by composing it with modern people in addition to those in the art. The camera include on the right gives another alternative view of the scene too, and puts a mon slant to a classical view, very nice, pest wishes

    Hi Ana,
    Beautiful place, one bad not heard of. I am instantly drawn to the massive statue carved on the right hand side, which you have really composed instead perfect place in the photo. Great light too which has created some brilliant shadows and a deep dark sense of intrigue of what lies inside the temple. Great photo, thanks for sharing.

    Hi Barnabas,
    Fascinating to see the spire like this, sitting on the ground. Without its church below it looks more like castle than a church! I think the quality on this is great from a slide, and it's a really interesting subject. Thanks for sharing,

    Hi Ray,
    That landscape is superb, but it's the sky that really gets me, it seems to be radiating across the view like sunbeams, stunning cloud formations like this and the rare blue tones above this rocky land make for an enduring picture. Really nicely done.

    Hi Swapan
    This is a beautiful complex of temples, and they sit so comfortably in the natural surroundings. I love the colors of both the land and the temples, as always, you detailed historic notes are a real bonus to help understand these places better and appreciate the history.
    Thanks as always

    Hi Silvio
    This does remind me a tomb, it is quite somber and a beautiful work of art. The soft muted light suits this place really well and I really like the ever so silty off centre composition. As the lamp hanging on the right compliments the main subject really well. Very nicely done.

    Hi Rosemary,
    I thought this was the soft silky lining of a giant clam, you captured this at precisely the right moment to freeze these beautiful curved waves of the washing. Fascinating way to create a visual image from something so ordinary, even the sun looks like it could be a huge pearl glinting from inside. Brilliant photo.

    I like this a lot, a very good sharp capture of the sun, and the silhouettes look great. Have you ever seen the movie Koyaanasquatsie? This really remind me of some scenes from that movie. Very nice image

    Hi Jean Claude,
    This is a beauty, the colors are so seasonal and rich and deep, the blue sky has wonderful details too. To have this fine scene reflected in the glassy waters of he mirror river is just a superb moment. Stunning moment.

    Hi Kasia,
    The two balloons with the fires lit look almost like a loving couple, delicately touching as they ascend to the heavens. It really is amazing for me to see so many of these huge balloons in one place. Your workshop photos are brilliant, a fine accompaniment to the main post.

    Hi Jean,
    This is a very pleasant scene, the crashing sea and the houses in their colors look great. What I really like is the massive rock, it looks like a cornucopia in the sea! Such an unusual formation and so close to the land, I imagine pele must lose climbing all over this.
