    Czesc Ryszard,
    bardzo atrakcyjny stylowy ratusz.
    Swietne kolory, rowniez niebo dodaje uroku. Przyjemnie wzorkowana kostka brukowa na pierwszym planie.
    Widze ze wybierasz sie nierzadko za zachodnia granice. Myslalem o takim wypadzie na przyszlosc. Slyszalem ze we wschodnich Niemczech nie przepadaja za Polakami, czy w samochodzie z polska rejstracja jest sie narazonym na jakies akty wandalizmu czy cos?
    Marzyla mi sie na przyklad wycieczka do Drezna...
    Pozdrawiam serdecznie,

    Ciao Carlo,
    lovely combination of the ancient ruins and the rich vegetation in the foreground. The columns add a nice geometrical pattern. Fantastic colors throughout the frame. Great weather!
    Excellent work, well spotted!

    Hi Jean,
    very interesting place and a beautiful mosaic floor. However it is actually kind of funny to realize that the floor has been closed for pedestrians because it is too beautiful. There is some irony in it.
    Very well done!

    Ciao Silvio,
    I am so glad you took this trip south since I have a chance to learn more about Naples and its environs.
    Very interesting castle with dark towers. Well presented set against a fantastic sky.
    I like the richly decorated facade between the two towers.
    Beautiful work,

    Hi Lars,
    my 4 year old daughter tells me the same story. There is always a little girl staring at her when she stands in front of the mirror :)
    Lovely place! I can see the white castle from the previous photo further in the distance.
    This must be a great place for a walk and you had such a great weather too which allowed you to capture the splendid architecture in great colors.
    Excellent work!

    Hi Costantino,
    boats in a marina are always a very photogenic subject for photography. You have achieved here a very attractive geometry with the boat making a nice repeated motif.
    Although the shapes are the same the colors are so different and it makes a nice final effect with the reflection of course adding a great touch here.
    Very well seen and captured.
    Have a great Sunday!

    Hi Ike,
    I am surprised you didn't show it before. This is such a photogenic subject for photography with plenty of colorful vegetables and people focus on shopping.
    Lovely scene. I like the presence of inscriptions in your alphabet which looks so exotic to me also people indicate clearly an multicultural environment.
    Great reportage, I think you should go there more often with your camera.
    Have a great Sunday,

    Hi Chris,
    I see you have very fast answered my question :)
    Great light and colors. Pity about the construction but it still looks quite impressive. Nice elements in the foreground.
    Fantastic reportage, taken while risking your life.

    Hi Chris,
    I have seen on FB even more your photos, it looks like you visited even more pyramids. Did you go to see this one in Saqqara as well?
    I like very much the idea and illustration for it that a perfection requires time.
    Great colors here. Also quite attractive is the solitude away from tourists and sellers. Nice surface of the structure.
    Beautiful postcard like presentation, exactly as I like it.
    Have a great Satudray,

    Hola Luis,
    I have seen another photo from Trogir today taken by Daniel.
    It really seems like a beautiful town. I am really impressed by how much you have managed to see in Croatia -from the north to the south.
    I would need two trips to do it all.
    Very charming corner well spotted here. Nice architectural motifs decorated by the "washing day".
    Excellent work,

    Hi Rob,
    this river cruise was really fruitful!
    You have photographs from all over the town which you took sitting peacefully on a chair in the boat!
    I really have to remember that.
    Yes the Chrysler building is certainly one of the most characteristic on Manhattan. Great framing here with other skyscrapers. Since we see no ground here at appears so high, well it is actually quite high...
    Excellent work!

    Hi Angel,
    lovely square -I like the white architecture all around. It seems to be quite elegant.
    The tables look very inviting, I would love to sit down there for a lunch. In March already you have more sun than we have in May... That is something I envy you even more.
    Beautiful capture, very well seen and taken.
    Have a great weekend,

    Hi Fabiano,
    wow this is beautiful indeed. This is exactly the type of photo I would try to make there. The monument adds an interesting foreground. You had a fantastic sky as well -so lovely decorated with charming clouds.
    I have been to Milan twice but without camera. I suppose I have to get back there again.
    The cathedral is spectacular.
    Very well done,

    Hi John,
    St. Paul's is beautiful indeed. I remember one movie in which action at certain point moved from London to Washington and in the exact spot where there was St. Paul's dome -they have positioned Capitol Building. It looked almost as if the Capitol was built based on the cathedral, but it may be a coincidence.
    Very original framing here on both sides with similar modern buildings. The two ladies add some life and interest too.
    Sky has been burned a bit but he burned area is not that significant.
    Excellent work!!!

    Have a great weekend,

    Hi Costantino,
    beautiful view. The promenade appears like a nice place for a walk, at the very centre lovely church. Ladies seem to be enjoying the view. Pity that you didn't get closer the girls it will look more attractive but I suppose I am also careful with photographing young girls...
    Great idea with the partial desaturation, nice way to focus somebody's attention on one subject.
    Very well done!!
    Have a great weekend,

    Hi Craig,
    I love postcards as you well know, so this is the view which attracted me first.
    I don't recall seeing the Chicago city scape from this angle. Beautiful!
    Almost blue hour. My guess is that you have stayed there a bit longer to capture the scene with all city lights on and a bit darker sky?
    Nevertheless it is a very impressive spot. The little waterfall makes a lovely foreground and we can already see the lights turned into stars (F14).
    Extraordinary evening mood.
    Yes the problems with sharpness as well as other problems exist here and are no longer being addressed. I got used to them too. It feels like at certain moment TE will collapse and the owners will not even notice. So pity.
    If I win a lottery tonight I will try to buy TE from IB :)
    Have a great weekend,

    Czesc Barbara,
    to naprawde niesamowite miejsce. Oczywiscie ten widok z piramida podobal mi sie bardziej ale tutaj dobrze widac skale, rozmach tego miejsca.
    Ciekawe ze tak dawno temu ludzie budowali miasta I tak niewiele po nich pozostalo. Nam teraz wydaje sie ze nasza kultura jest niezniszczalna. Co bedzie z naszym swiatem za pareset lat?

    this is a view which is so typical for California :)
    Nice capture, you are right a person walking in the middle adds a sense of scale and some action too.

    Hi Dale,
    this is a brilliant composition.
    The castle itself is ok but it is HOW you have showed it, what makes this a beautiful photograph.
    The tree branch makes a nice curve and it seems to follow the diagonal hill. It nicely covers uniform sky which would be boring without this decoration. Even though the day was not offering you any good light -the final effect is stunning with extraordinary mood.
    Excellent work,
