    Hi Denis
    this is another one of those wow scenes, thats exactly what I said to myself when i looked at it.

    glad to see you didn't block off the mountains with the tower, some people would actually do that!!!

    4 main components make up this wonderful scene, well 5 when counting the light. The green grass as a fg element, the church tower, the mountains, and the clouds...lovely shot all around. cheers

    Hi Pierre
    ohhh...very 'pretty' this one.
    and it does have the 1950's color scheme going on doesn't it, we see cars from that ear in this same teal.

    love the cross at the top, and the blue sky with the clouds slowly zipping by, makes for a wonderful visual.
    cheers

    Hi Claude
    I have to be honest, I didn't think much of the monument at first glance, or even 2nd and 3rd glance! after reading the note i changed my mind a bit. of course i like and agree with the premise, but the monument still leaves something to be desired - but thats just my opinion. I guess what i'm saying is all we see are types of clothing, and a caption that reads the women of world war II. I mean...i get it, i get the honour and the work they did and of course they're deserving of a monument...i just think they're deserving of a BETTER monument thats all :)

    anyways, art is always so subjective, can't please everyone all the time :)

    but still, i like that you present it to us here, as its my first time ever seeing or hearing about it!
    cheers

    Hi Silvio
    yes, now I want to go hiking along this route too. I'd be looking over to my right all the time :)
    its great how the photo has 2 sections, it breaks off to the left, and it breaks off to the right. wonderful to have the clouds as a secondary subject too. cheers

    Hi Malgo
    funny you say you don't expect many points, because i LOVE this photo!!!!!

    this is the type of backstreet grunge and dirty stuff that i enjoy so much, similar to finding abandoned homes.

    this is real life, real people, real culture. please dont' think of this as a photo that others will not like. its fantastic! I want more like this :)
    cheers

    Hi Chris
    what the heck is this???
    first of all, its great to see inner city street shots from Australia, for some reason we don't see many - and I still don't understand why.

    I've always thought of this city being very similar to Vancouver, but i'm not sure.

    I like this compo, its as if the wolf is waiting to get picked up by a friend or something, stand there all casual.
    quirky and weird city shot, but thats what makes it good.
    cheers

    Hi Carlo
    I enjoyed this one immediately, especially the top 2/3's, the very very bottom is a bit confusing, but the other parts offer up a splendid visual.

    it like a maze, its hard to follow all the lines, and perhaps they lead to something :) and of course the white color and the lighting make it come alive, really like this tight crop. cheers

    Hi Piotr
    its interesting to see the clear division between the new town and the old town. the Old town is pretty much set into its own little Triangle. I wonder what it must be like to walk around those streets. do you have any photos from there?? this is a wonderful view point with the cruise ships and mountains, love the strong color contrasts and set up.
    cheers

    Hi Gert
    I'm fully aware that Thailand is a different country, but its similar looking, and Thailand was my very very very first venture out of North America - i recall seeing scenes exactly like this one and I was pretty much shocked! I was young and travel naive, so needless to say it was an eye opener for me.

    Its hard to imagine living in such conditions on the water like that. I recall seeing people peeing and pooing in the water from their front door/balcony...my goodness.

    having said all that, with all those memories popping up, your hotel room couldn't be much closer to all the action.
    you basically have a front row seat. good lighting, no monsoon rains, worked out well on this day.
    cheers

    Hi Rob
    and once again, its vital we have the WS photo to put everything into perspective here.

    this is a pretty neat little design pattern, its as if someone is playing checkers haha
    very cool colors, its a color scheme we don't see very often and its quite striking.

    PS
    When/where would you like to meet on Thursday? Email me or get back to me here. let me know!!

    Hi Krzysztof
    this is probably the best of the latest posts, its very clear and sharp. not only that, but i really really like the composition and how everything is laid out on the frame.
    the flowers, the chair, the walls, and i love that wall clock.
    fine look here. cheers

    Hi Costantino
    we have a very similar looking bridge here in Vancouver, same design and look, just not as long.

    Not sure if thats an actual beach or just a waterfront, lets hope its not a beach haha. even at this far away distance the bridge is quite large. the clouds add a great secondary subject, as do the mountains. lovely. cheers

    Hi Craig,
    fantastic presentation from this unique castle. I knew you will find your way to it sooner or later. I had the pleasure to visit is a while ago but I am not very happy with my photos. There were crowds of people everywhere and the sun was so strong. Here a tiny bit of clouds may have done a favour to you, so the contrasts are not that strong and details of the architecture are very well recorded.
    Great wide angle composition!

    Hi Abmdsudi,
    this is so beautiful! The reflection is almost perfect thanks to the very smooth surface. Very smart composition with the architecture mainly present in the reflection and the silhouettes of people at the top of the frame. Brilliant work. The girls seem to also have traditional clothes, adding some color. Nice geometry too with the columns providing extra shapes and lines.
    You have a great eye, excellent work,

    Bonjour Christiane,
    this is so pretty! I haven't been there for ages! I almost forgot how it looks like.
    Great point of view across the water. I like the partial reflection in the pond as well. Beautiful architecture captured in a great light. Very pleasant natural framing.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Serghei,
    very funny series of photos. This is so American here: not only the flag but also the Starbucks, and also fragment of the sign ONE WAY. Plenty of people appearing very focused on various activities. The boy on the bins is quite an extraordinary view. Are they so clean in NYC that one can rest on them indeed?
    Very well spotted!!
