    Hi Dale
    A dramatic and meaningful sculpture and perfectly composed to have Tyne eye view of one and the energetic heavenly head thrust of the other. The barely there clouds add to the sense of life and energy Beu cool photo

    Hello Beatrice

    Unusual and edgy framing, with most of the "subject" in the bottom third. Strong b/w contrasty contre-jour treatment, and highly graphic/geometric composition. And I love the criss-cross pattern of jet trails in the sky (where else?)

    Hello Malgo

    An interesting and unusual shot. I like the playing with scale: the mural dwarfs the cars beneath. At first I thought this was a really grainy/noisy image: but of course it's just the effect of all those tiny glass tiles.

    Hi Damien
    A brilliant view of the city which really gives feel for the height and ultra modern designs. I've never been to this city abd to me poorly traveled eyes this is like a scene from a video game. Great shot

    Hello Gy

    I like the distortion you've got from your wide-angle lens (though you don't tell us what focal length you were using). Nicely graphic and contrasty, helped by your signature monochrome treatment.

    Hello Gert

    Off to school by the look of things. How did Shakespeare describe the scene? "...The whining school-boy with his satchel and shining morning face, creeping like snail unwillingly to school." Well these kids don't look unwilling at all! You've given us a happy, lively scene, and I don't mind about the litter...

    Hello George

    I'm a big fan of monochrome, so I could hardly pass this one by, as b/w images are as rare as hen's teeth on TE! The textures and composition are excellent, and the treatment is contrasty and full-spectrum. Nice one.

    Hello Cristina

    Thank goodness we've got you back again! I do hope this isn't just a one-off. This is a classic "pap" image, street people doing stuff with no regard for your camera, and those bubbles to intrigue. Beautifully contrast monochrome, and a classic candid street shot. Straight in my favourites!

    Hello Noel

    An imposing structure, set in the middle of nowhere, apparently! I like the slightly surreal juxtaposition of the stone tower and the surrounding wild country. I'm just hoping there isn't a car-park, or a MacDonald's right behind you!

    Hello Tania

    A classic mountainscape, in classic monochrome. I love the strength of the clouds contrasting with the dim trees in the foreground. Good processing of the b/w tones.

    Hello Saša,

    For some reason these buildings don't look very Greek to me, though maybe that's just the colour. I'm thinking of Bulgaria/Roumania, but I guess that's only just up the road, as it were! Lovely shot.

    Hello Tony

    Interesting shot of these nuns. From your title I was looking for some sort of building - perhaps even something quite ornate, but you have shown us these two doing their heavy work in front of a pile of timber! Building material, or to be chopped up for firewood, I wonder?

    Hi Pierre
    That's one large house. Beautiful design which one would see as typical for that side of the Atlantic and add always you chose a great angle to capture it from.

    That is some sky to capture with these buildings add the foreground, superb timing. For some reason i think this scene looks rather festive

    Hi Craig
    I know the kind of landscapes you mean, the camera can never do justice. This really looks like such a place. It also looks so wet here, everything so green, it seems there is water hanging everywhere. Nice one in the note on Ireland photos I'm really looking forward to seeing those!

    These old chimneys remind me of the famous towers of San Gimignano, like you've captured a medieval manhattan on a rooftop! Nicely spotted, great architectural feature

    Your colors are subtle but powerful and the scene is simple but striking. A very elegant composition. Thanks for your comment about the Terminator, I thought the same thing :)

    We don't often see humour in architecture so that makes your photo instantly eye-catching. You chose the perfect angle to give this funny face is own personality. Nicely seen
