    Hi Marcin
    The v blue silver tones of your photo are beautiful and make this pleasant scene look wonderfully spooky and creepy, just the kind of photo I love. I would not be at all surprised to hear a Wolf howl from the distance in this haunted looking forest

    Hi Ranjan
    Fantastic angle to shoot the bridge from, it creates such a strange shape in how the bridge is standing, like it's obscurely twisted, I love the effect. The color of the sky is indeed outstanding

    Hi Alain
    There is a great sense of the motion and powerful of the falls in this photo, and framing the most powerful part with the trees is a wonderful idea. Great result, this is a place to see if I ever get to see Canada.

    Hi Aphrodite,
    The moon is difficult to shoot, and this is a very nice shot of it. I think it's good that the city Street is devoid of people, it helps connect the moon to the ground. Very cool that the moon is glowing almost like a star too.
    If I might make one suggestion, the maybe dark space to the left doesn't add to the photo, if anything it distracts from the kit Street and makes that element less significant than it deserves to be. a great photo with nice almost spooky mood

    Hi Carlo
    This is a fascinating way to portray this detailed and artistic staircase, you perfectly present the colors and variety. The feet in the top left are a quirky and fun touch.

    Hi Fernando
    This is a wonderfully spooky photo, this could be draculas castle with the turret standing from silhouette like this. The silver in the water is like an otherworldly halo around it. Great photo

    Hi John
    Beautiful old church. And under great light. You caught a great moment with the plastic chairs acting as spring flowers. Its almost as if you have caught the chairs in a movement from an extravagant ballroom dance!

    Hi Nicolas
    Breathtaking scenery with such fine light and shadows. The mighty mountain has a soft appearance under the gold light, I'd say it could attract many climbers to try and challenge it. Really fine photo

    Hi Nelish
    An interesting scene from Mumbai and that bridge is an impressive piece of engineering. The long panorama works really well too emphasise the bridges impressive span. Black and white works well too.

    Hi Ourania
    To be honest I am not familiar with this color being common on the Greek Islands, so thanks for a good note! Is certainly a striking, if delicate color. The handle is unusual and looks like an arm off an expensive chandelier. Nice straight forward scene

    Hi Mesut
    Another beauty in this series, I must say that this is my favorite of any of the series you have shared. I found it hard to imagine that the people in these photos would be so different today. These really are captures of people and daily life that is invaluable to the future.
    Thanks as always

    Hi Rob
    Brilliant shot and what a building! It instantly reminded me of a scene in one of the newer star wars movies where there is a galactic council of some sort and they sit on flying disks that look like this :) your framing of this is perfect, very cool photo

    You could not ask for a better blue sky than this against which to present both the palm d'or against. everything is perfectly placed in the frame too. Really nice photo,

    Hi Serge
    Very nice and unusual view and composition, the light is really unusual and creates a very unique feeling. There seems to be a little hole in the cloud right above lady liberty, it looks like she just punched the sky

    Hi John
    A new view to me of this famous London landmark, nicely done. I often find that when we see these giant buildings from this kind of narrow view, they take on more personality. This cathedral now feels like a giant living thing looking down on the streets below. I think it helps that the slice of facade we can see definitely has a face :)
    Cheers

    Hi Guglielmo
    I love this long panorama of this city, the perfectly placed silhouette of the fine intricate architecture speed exactly why this city is so renowned. The subtle change in the sky from pink to blue is superb.

    A bright cheerful scene that makes me think of being on holiday, especially with all the people in the view. The position you chose to shoot from gives an excellent sense of movement. That blue is superb.

    Hi Tomek
    That is very stark and austere design, especially under this light, and it looks superb. Your choice to place the tower on the left works really well and the whole result is very nice indeed. This could be a scene from Gotham city
