    Hi Swapan,
    This is beautiful. You captured the sense of movement and joy so perfectly with the motion blur and the wide engine smiles of the people. What an incredible location too, every element of this image is I'm my opinion perfect. Really, really nicely done.

    Hi Carlo
    Nicely positioned on thirds, this fine monument creates a great focal point in this scene with excellent depth that begs the eye to explore further and look deep up this steet. The contrast of light and shadow is vy notable and the colors brought in by the flowers is really appealing. Very nice.
    Cheers

    Hi Malgo,
    An interesting idea, and one that would work well in Ireland, a roof over the country would be good! This is a lovey urban scene showing this creative structure well in its context, the people here are a vitally important part of the view. Great shot.

    Hi Russ,
    Great to see your post! An original capture indeed, it's a great subject and a fine portrait, and what I like most is the way you have created this natural industrial frame by utilising the chains like this. This is not the kind of image we would see often, and you took this really well.
    Thanks as always, best wishes rom Ireland.

    Hi Jasmine
    What an ostentatious piece, and beautiful for it, which is not something I normally feel about such opulence. An intricate and detailed work, and you have portrayed it so spectacularly against this gilt framed mirror. Fascinating spinterior subject, really ll taken.

    Hi Omid
    A memory of antoher time, and of other people brought together well with the soft warm glow from this lamp. It is a beautiful light and looks great on this fine carpet. A lesson that we should never take such things as electricity for granted, when they are gone the whole world changes.
    I do agree with Clodo, the blue light of the heater kind of takes away from the mood, as it looks like it is electric, but the food on the left I think suits the feel given from this lamp.
    thanks as always

    Hi Pedro
    Great scene of these ladies selling their so fresh looking food! I am guessing the woman on the right was not too happy to see your camera, she looks rather stern! I would have guessed this place as La Paz even without the note due to the hats, I have seen them a few times before. Vibrant and beautifully colored scene, the warped reflection in the mirror is a nice touch.
    thanks

    Hi Ourania
    IT seems from their relaxed posture that they are good friends, so good that they can sit in silence and watch the world and not feel the urge to make small talk. It is a touching photo, and as your note, makes us wonder what is going through their minds. Although I cannot see their faces, the little I can see makes me think they share a common worry, especially the man on the left. Great moment.

    Hi Barbara
    Great portrait of this cute little baby, this is a pro shot which I am sure any doting parent would be so pleased with. Composition and framing are perfect for your subject, and I love how she is looking up left like this. Really nicely done, and not with the easiest subject matter!

    Hi Ray
    I like this one, a lot. The building is a wonderful color against this blue sky, and it kind of looks like it has been inspired by Egyptian design. I would imagine the Pharos of Alexandria looked a lot like this, perhaps without the windows though. A nice idea to make a change from the typical traditional design of capitol, I for one certainly appreciate its design.

    Hi Gosia,
    Love this view, the sun setting itself is a perfect photo moment, but even more so when you have the ability to compose these many masts into the scene as well, they make an excellent silhouette. The rippled water, dark landscape and beautiful sky breaks the scene into perfect thirds too. Really nice :)
    Thanks as always

    Hi Krzyzstof,
    Excellent sense of height in this view, and the textures of the stone and the roof are brilliant. You got a really interesting sky too, the soft muted tones of blue are very cool.

    Hi Indrasish,
    What an unusual and brilliant idea for a photo. I would never expect to see this combination of the clear rippled water and the people standing there in this composition, and it works so perfectly well> The large soft round rocks break the water and create excellent foreground interest. You have broken the scene into thirds in the most novel way I have ever seen. I would imagine holiday companies would pay handsomely for this image.
    thanks as always

    Hi Silvio
    this is a beautiful square and the church is a real highlight for me, it looks so old, even its color is totally different from the buildings all around it making it look like it was transported here from the past. An austere but beautiful building. The things this church will have seen here!

    Hi Miguel
    I have not heard of this fuzzy little creature, nice, almost like a cross between a mouse and a dog :) I would imagine that means he is not popular with everybody, but I like him! Thanks for the introduction to a species I never heard of.

    This is a beautiful view of this icon, and especially thought these other fine towers, the colors of which are a beautiful beside the blue of the main tower. Sharp and clear and really so detailed image. Once again, I wanna go to London so bad!!!

    Hi Costantino,
    I like this view a lot, and the balustrade in the foreground makes it feel like I really there. the texture of the balustrade is excellent too, great contrast to the wide open space beyond.

    Hi Maria
    This is a great scene, the combination of the two types of transport, but also that the rickshaw is in light and the bus in shade, it kind of makes it look like the bus is a shark, sneaking up to attach the innocent smaller vehicle :) Nice urban scene, well captured.

    Hi Bev,
    Yay, somewhere I have been :) I think the locals call this the squinty bridge, and I really like its unusual design. I seen this as I was walking from Jamaica street to the Armadillo, and I think its a cool area of the city. Perfect timing to capture it with this big red fun bus, that adds excellent color to the grey skies. I have a soft spot for Glasgow since I spent 3 weeks there.
    thanks for sharing.
