    Hi Edward,
    It may be old and fading, but it is still a very beautiful building, it cries back to another age when this type of house was in its glory. A very fine image to document this fine place, and from your note, one very important as if it keeps fading like this, it will not be able to display its glory for much longer. Excellent architectural and documentary photo.

    Hi Ricardo.
    Excellent scene, I want to take a fast car and drive this road like I have never driven before. It reminds me of a scene from the very old video game need for speed, it is that perfect as a road. Beautiful scene, well captured.

    Hi Jean,
    Really beautiful soft and relaxing colors, and what a wondful subject. Your composition of the lighthouse is perfect, especially balanced as it is by the sun like this. Great image, thanks for sharing.

    Hi Omid,
    I like this moðn building very much, the strong lines have an almost wate like feel to their design, while the circular windows are a nice contrast to the lines and remind me a little of a ship!
    Nice work

    Hi Carlo
    A very peaceful scene, and all composed really nicely, the tower on thirds is particularly well done. A very calming image crafted with excellent light
    Thanks as always

    Hi Barnabas,
    A really good idea to focus on this unusual glass structure, it is intriguing and unusual. The workshop is great to picture it in its true context, but very unusually for the buildings you share, I don't like the structure it sits atop. I love the glass element in the main post though.
    Have a good weekend

    Hi Brian,
    Just like the last image I viewed in your gallery, what a cool contrast of styles. Beautiful to know this place has survived so much, and now finally, it seems the aliens have landed, the gherkins really looks like an alien craft here. It's a novel and excellent way to present this modern tower. Anytime I see the gherkins it is always in a very urban setting, but here it looks like it has just landed in a small country town, and it still looks fantastic. Excellent scene of this icon, and a really new one to me.
    All the best

    Hi Brian,
    I am familiar with the sight of these colorful beach huts thanks largely to your gallery that documents them so well, but I would never expect to see this big Italian style behemoth rising behind! A surprising and very beautiful image that you captured under abisolutrly superb light conditions. You have broken it into thirds in such a novel and excellent way too,
    Nicely done.
    Cheers

    Hi Malgo,
    What a view. As I look into your scene here, my eyes want to look up and down and across and into envy nook and cranny of the scene. These are the kind of streets that I would love to explore, and you captured them with such excellent levels of detail all across the scene. Really really nicely done.
    Have a great weekend.

    Hi Gosia
    Wow :)
    What a magnificent image, such perfect clarity for a dark scene, and such a perfect reflection. All of the elements combined perfectly and you were there to perfectly capture this timeless scene. I am not sure what the curved object is rising from the water in centre right, buy it adds a whole lot to an already fantastic scene. Congratulation on number fine hundred and this beauty of a photo.

    Hi Burak,
    What an unusual scene, not alone for the ice fishing but also for the row of tall buildings on the opposite shore! Most unexpected and very welcome, I am melting in the heat and this if picture is perfect for me right now.

    Hi Ray
    I love these playful creatures, the wates of Ireland are full of them too and a friend of mine showed me some pictures of ones that followed his about, amazing how much they seem to like people. This is a very nice capture of so many of them breaking the surface at the same time, normally I see just a couple, not a whole pod like this.

    The steps in the immediate foreground are really inviting me into the scene, and how cool to look rot down the street and over the roofs and into the distant mountains. The lighting you captured here is very beautiful.

    Hi Rosemary
    The beauty in Lonliness is very striking here, a scene with no people, and a seemingly barren landscape, but still the colors are so vivid and in such beautiful contrast to each other. Such incredible blues and earths.
    I remember as part of English class in school we went to see that movie of the same name, an excellent film

    Hi Indrasish,
    A nice black and white touch to this view which has brought out great textures in the sky and rocks, the daily life scene has excellent depth thanks to the lead line of the sea, which you have composed perfectly into the corner.

    Hey Lisa,
    This is an amazing spectacle, and even more so when combined with the emotion your dedication, not to any one or any group, but to all who suffer. As you say, there seems to be so much crap going on now, and it seems the past few weeks the world has just gone mad, passenger jets being shot down, hospitals being bombed, children dying,rockets flying everywhere. It's sad. If only people could all look at each other and see what we see here in your picture. Calming and restful image, perfect for a Friday eve after a long hot day in work.
    Have a blissful weekend :)
