    Hi Subhendu
    Interesting idea, the large dark surround does draw string attention to the light area in the centre, and even though I couldn't see what it was from the thumbnail, it intrigued me to look deeper. I like your framing too, I wouldn't know how to frame a shot like this, your idea works well.

    Hi Angel
    This is really beautiful, an everyday scene that countless people would pass, but I wonder how many stop a moment to appreciate the beauty as we can now with your photo. The depth of the laneway, the colors of the flowers, the play of light and shadow, all combined superbly
    Cheers

    Hi Carlo
    A photographers eye to see this, a very cool scene that attracts the eye and confuses the mind. I looked a while at the thumbnail and could not work out what this was! Even in full size it was not immediately obvious. Excellent photo and great title.

    Hi Hasan
    Well worth the extra time there, this is a wonderful cityscape. The sky is superb with a fascinating amount of color and light, while the city looks fantastic and so sharp! I love that the tower is red too, it makes it stand out so much more amongst all the various tones of blue. Very cool photo

    Hi Ryszard
    Beautiful detailed design, I especially like the curved balconies at the bottom, amazing that houses in cities were built with such intricate detail. Perfect framing of your scene too.

    Hi Chris
    Those are very fine fishing boats, they look in great condition and have fantastic colors. A far cry from the ones I see in Ireland! The sky is superb and has such different colors from the boats. Great composition too.

    Hi Ourania
    Great cathedrals all over the world have the long and detailed history's involving famous people but there can be something a little ostentatious about that in my mind. This little building is simple and its beautiful story is simple too,just as the message a religious building gives out should be. A story of a simple miracle and a simple and beautiful little building.to share it with.

    The shadow of the bells is really nicely considered too, you took s perfect moment for this photo.

    Thanks as alwyas

    Hi Arindam
    What a fantastic moment and how brilliant you were able to capture it?. I've spent some time trying to photograph these little creatures and I always find them so skittish and so fragile? I once spent hours in a field surrounded by thousands of them and still found them hard to photograph,my smallest movement would send them all flying. This is a truly beautiful moment and must surely be considered good luck?
    It is a beautiful butterfly and your friends hand is beautiful too. Though I would never normally notice nail varnish, in this view it is an important part of the scene as the gentle color adds to the elegance of your friends hand. She is holding her hand in a way very suited to the scene eiht the butterfl. Fantastic scene!
    Cheers

    Hi Terez
    Nice interior shot of this mansion. Normally I am not a fan of interior shots of buildings but there is a great mood to this which is really appealing, I would not be at all surprised to look hard and see a ghost somewhere in the scene as there is such a strange unique feeling to the muted light. Really nicely done

    Hi John
    What a scene :) superb depth and such rich, beautiful color as we peer off into the distance up the length of the canal while the sun sits so tantalising on the periphery of the view. You managed the light so expertly. Really cool photo

    Hi Ecmel
    Thanks for your note is great too appreciate a fine structure like this and also understand some of its long detailed history. The structure is really elegant which to me is surprising as i find most lighthouses to be solid sturdy constructions. The waves crashing beside it add a great sense of energy to your photo. Great post, thanks for sharing

    Outstanding photo, life and energy, color and atmosphere, you have captured it all under such perfect light conditions. Her smile is so welcoming and warm, she seems to enjoy the moment so much, and she is very beautiful too. It is impossible not to be drawn to this beautiful shot. Really nicely done

    Hi Abmdsudi
    Toy have managed the contrast of light and dark beautifully well here, neither is too dark nor too bright but instead each part of the scene has its own unique feeling, almost like two images merged into one. A more intelligent person than me might make comment on the contrast and combination of dark and light, especially in this holy place. I like that you captured the photographer in the view, is a nice human touch in what could otherwise have been a purely architectural view. A lesson to me in light management and debenture division, really nicely done
    Cheers

    Hi Silvio
    A very beautiful town and an impressive square for such a anak population. The combination of blue hour sky and golden man-made light is wonderful and the elderly woman walking across the scene has really made the photo her own, she is such an important part of the photo

    Hi Nicolas
    Whenever I manage to capture such special rays of light, I'm always so happy so I guess you must be really pleased with this beautiful photo. The tragus are so defined and even more beautiful that they have created this golden pool on the surface of the water. Wonderful photo, really nicely done
