    Salut Maria,

    You hate crowds, and you come here?!! :) Even with the amount of people in the gardens, isn't this such a great place to get away from the crazier hustle and bustle of the Champs Elysees and Rue Rivoli....and it's only a few short steps away, but feels like a million miles? Ahhhh!

    This picture pretty much sums up the atmosphere and relaxation of this little paradise in the center of Paris. One of my favorites is the Luxembourg Gardens, but I'll happily spend just as much time here too. :) Sit back, kick up your feet and soak it all up. Lovely!! Hope all is going well. Take good care.

    Cheers from the hot and humid desert monsoon,

    Jason

    Salut Cricri,

    Tout simplement magnifique! J'aime les couleurs dans cette image, très comme Automne, créant une atmosphère chaleureuse et accueillante...et les tons rougeâtres travaille énormément bien contre les eaux bleues. Un point de vue superbe et une perspective sur la mer, et le sentier du bateau nous mène avec anticipation et la curiosité de ce qui se trouve au-delà. Autant de délicieuses vues que tu nous as donné déjà, comment as-tu jamais t'arracher à rentrer chez toi? :) Super détails, de clarté et de textures...et un tour avec une vue! Profite du reste du week-end. Tous les meilleurs voeux.

    Bises du désert,

    Jason

    Bonjour Magalay,

    We're currently in our monsoon season, when the skies are best just before and after a storm, and this picture is a lovely rendition of that sentiment. Strong color and an air of anticipation....or relaxation, depending on the timing. A beautiful sky, full of clouds and atmosphere...literally! :) Love the exposure to create strong silhouettes of the trees. Bon weekend.

    Warm regards,

    Jason

    Hi Pierre
    haha...yes, Corner Brook.
    I know this town very well indeed.
    Spent lots of time here myself.

    the rocky landscape stand out very well here, typical of the area.

    thanks for this trip down memory lane :)

    Hi Malgo,

    Your note says it all, why do you think I chose the September?? :) What a beautiful, and smart way to show the Volksgarten...this really does put the emphasis on the roses and time of year. Too bad this isn't a scratch n' sniff kind of picture, I'm sure the aroma's and atmosphere is pure delight, The varying shades of greens and yellows are ideal, and the wide open sky and sunlight make everything even more appealing to the senses. Hope it's just the same in a month or so, yeah? :) Detail, clarity and an easy to follow composition make this all so very enticing. Hope you're having a nice weekend. Take care.

    Friendly wishes,

    Jason

    Hi Bernd
    well well well...look who's back :)
    nice to see you again.
    Will you be back full-time again do you think?

    glad to see you added in the large cloud formation at the top here, makes the scene just that much better.

    pleasing shot all around with the color combinations.

    Hi Ike,

    A beautiful little find...isn't it great when you run across something like this? Sometimes it's simply a matter of luck. :) I wouldn't worry anything about the exposure, it truly is the charm and details that are the winner. I can't tell if it's real or not...but there appears to be a bird almost right in the middle of the frame, which also makes for a fun addition to this lovely scene. Not too many of them around me right now, the dogs like to chase them off. :) Hope all has been safe, the situation is always the lead news story. Hoping for the best, and quickest resolution. Take good care.

    Friendly wishes,

    Jason

    Hello Rosemary,
    this is a most challenging shot, not only for the difficult case the lighting contrasts had created, but also because you surely wanted to present more than a simple description of the marina and the waterfront. You managed to achieve stunning clarity and make the transfer from light to shade effective but also comfortable for the viewer. You brought out the graphical quality of all the elements including the water surface, that's full of reflections. The colours are delicious, even the dark tones in the shade. The atmosphere is particularly charming. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely evening,
    Ourania

    Bonjour Serge,

    I really like this positioning, it offers a very nice viewpoint of the bridge itself, as well as the river and city just beyond. Great too that there are a few people looking over the side, enjoying a view just the same. :) A most pleasant perspective with a lot of detail and natural colors. I'm forever amazed at how old, and yet, how great a condition these bridges are throughout Europe. Hope you're having a nice weekend. Take good care.

    Amicalement,

    Jason

    Hola Juan,

    Color isolation doesn't always produce the best results, but this one is a real winner! Two icons of London, and it just wouldn't be the same without the RED double decker bus...this really puts a strong stamp on the cities well known attraction. Wonderful composition that takes us from front to back with an easy to follow "lane" of sight. Very well done! Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

    Best regards,

    Jason

    Hi Gert,

    Don't you just love it when you get more than you bargained for? :) Easy to see what would have been the first attraction in the architectural elements, but a big bonus was afforded by the two women on the balcony...well, almost two anyway. :) I love that inquisitive stare coming from behind the glass. If only the elderly lady could see the front of the street sign to know which direction to look!? :) Great WS pictures too, but this is definitely "the one." Hope you're having a nice weekend. Take good care.

    Friendly wishes,

    Hello Agnes,
    your picture gives us an excellent description of this long marina lacking water. It's intriguing to see so many boats "sitting" on the wet sand, a strange sight. I like very much the depth and perspective of your photo that covers a very large area, all pleasantly clear and well lighted. The colours are natural and delightful, they give a very vivid impression. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely evening,
    Ourania

    Hi Gosia,

    Well, if the royal family only uses it for ceremonial and reception purposes, I'd be happy to live there in the meantime to keep it occupied. :) What a magnificent palace, and a super rendition of its beauty taken at such a fine hour to enhance the many fine details and features in this setting. A truly beautiful display of natural and artificial lights coming together in a singular moment. Hope you're having a great weekend, and a big "congrats" on the 500 mark! Take good care.

    I know i've mentioned it to you before, but i really do have to check this out the next time i'm in Las Vegas.

    looks like a fun place to take some photos and just enjoy the desert in a new and fun sort of way.

    you captured some fine light against the almost transparant sails. nice shot

    Hi Ike
    nice to see a peaceful and quaint scene from you, even if it were taken back in April.

    although the smaller and colorful marina boats add more charm than these white yacht types, they certainly do have their place.

    Just not in my marina space! haha...far too expensive.

    a pleasant long string of boats, i really enjoy the marina scene.

    cheers
