    Hi Eleu,
    As the lights have not yet come on in many of the buildings, there is a cool Gotham city vibe to many of the towers, especially the one to the right of the green circles. A very nice view of the city skyline and the gold reflection on the water is great.

    Hi Stephen,
    Great to see this stairway that you mentioned before, a brilliant composition to include the stairs in the immediate foreground which gives another layer of depth to an already depth filled image. I can picture myself here very easy, walking down tose stairs and down and down t see the view of the city beyond. There is an enticing view of the city and expansive view beyond through the fine details of the park. Cool photo
    Cheers

    Hi Abmdsudi
    I am glad for your note, as I would never have worked this image out, the deep crimson ribbon across the top of the picture us surreal and almost like a mid air river of blood. I know that sounds quite dark, but the color reminds me so much of the red liquid. A very interesting daily life scene, and an important cultural view too. The light is beautiful as is the places you have positioned the rich color, an eye catching image to say the least.

    Hi Besnard
    The colours are wonderful, it really is amazing how the paint in urban spaces can make a place so vivid. To add to that, the leading line of the river draws the eye deep inside the view to explore every last building
    Great shot, cheers

    Hi Joao
    Interesting structure and you present it against a very beautiful blue sky. It kind of reminds me of a great viking ship sailing the seas. Great framing of the structure in the scene

    Hi Alfred
    Very nice view, you have captured really well both the colourful and varied architecture as well as the frenetic sense of energy from the people gathered by the waters edge. This photo is full of life and a beauty to view

    A beautiful range of colors through your shot, and great light management of light too to retain detail in every part of the shot. The path draws the eye and makes me want to go exploring here.

    Hi Subhendu
    Very interesting code of view, even though the frenetic energy of the people is present, you have made the drums the star of the show here. Very clever way to shoot the scene, great result

    Hi Ann
    A very pleasant sunny moment with the people enjoying the sun. A great touch that you got the great reflection too and the touch of green brought in by the seaweed is excellent. A sunny view and one I hope we all see many of this year!

    Hi Serge
    Beautiful light in this image and the colours are great. The silhouettes of the lamps create depth, which is really cool as I've never been able to create depth with silhouettes. The sun is catching the lower parts really well too creating interesting little sparks of light. Great moment

    Beautiful detailed architecture, and a pleasure for me to view as is so unlike anything I see in real life. The house is positioned really nicely asking the trees making it look like a beautiful and welcoming home

    Hi Carlo
    For me this is all about the rich colors and textures, the surface of that wall is beautiful, I can almost feel is rough surface on the screen of my phone. The people in the view add a nice human touch into the scene too showing this as a scene very much enjoyed by locals

    Hi Burak
    A great scene to show that people can create a living place in the most extreme environments, this is a really nice shot of the unusual home. Nicely spotted on the reflection of blue from the glass too, like pools of water among the rocks

    Hi Bev
    You chose a really excellent view here, the boat leads so well into the frame and draws the eye right up to those great modern buildings which tower and create a skyline to rival any other. How great that you got such a clean blue sky and perfect light to create your photo. Like you, I live in the countryside and love to see big modern architecture, I would squealed with felt at this view.
    I laughed at your comment on the marathon too :)

    Hi Craig
    I can almost hear the cows whispering to each other, "would you ever look at him, jumping in the sacred river, not a thought for us baking in the sun. I thought we were sacred, but they never bring us swimming, oh no! " haha,I always love a shot that makes me create little stories and in Witton to that, this has a real vibrancy and grittiness to it, a true daily life scene. The animals looking right at you make this for me.
    Even though I live in a country where animals way outnumber the people, I still find it strange seeing life stock in an urban setting like this. Great shot, easy to seee why its one of your favourites

    Hi Maciej
    This is a formidable looking castle, I would not like to try to breach these walls in a time of war. The colours all across the view compliment each other very nicely. I live how the crenellated roof stands out so strikingly against the fine blue sky. Beautiful shot of one of my favourite subjects.

    A beautiful golden pool, and set so carefully in the scene. Surrounded by the dark it stands out perfectly wrote above the layers of light and color add a lot. Great moment

    Hi Malgo
    Really informative note, thank you. I would not have spotted the subtle differences in the clothing styles so I have again learned here on TE. It's a very well spotted candid moment too, nothing forced out posed and the colours are really strong to emphasise your note
    Thanks as always

    Hi Ana
    A very fine lonely tree, a theme I discovered on this site and which I always enjoy. I think this is the first such tree that I have seen composed without any sky, it's just set in a land of green and it works really well. Great shot of this very lonely tree.

    Hi Omid,
    It almost looks like this mighty tower was cut from the very earth it stands on, a very formidable place. Nice idea to centrally focus on the tower, the upwards view giving moRe strength and power to it. The earthy colors against the blue sky are beautiful
