    Hello Craig,
    It's an original photo, or maybe rather some original architecture. They could use the lawns for a small golf course, but if you miss a shot to the next green you would have a great problem getting the ball back to the roof. ;-) What I especially like with this photo is how the light only covers these buildings, while the rest of the view is in the shade. It's like if you had a giant spotlight directed at the features you wanted to show.
    Best wishes,
    Gert

    Hello Ourania,
    This photo shows the importance of sometimes looking back at where you came from, even when not stopped by strangers. The warm light still covering most of the hill is very attractive, and there is still enough light to create fine reflections in the water. But I suppose it would already be quite dark before those people reached the church. I like the vertical shape where you managed to include the long stretch of beach towards the village. The elderly fisherman adds a strong element to the good atmosphere.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello John,
    I guess I would often regard very bright pottery like this, or any kind of bright souvenirs, as being not of the best of taste, byt these actually look quite nice. One of these could look good on any table, provided you managed to bring it home in one piece. In spite of their brightness they needed the surrounding people to be really interesting in a photo. I see that you did some saturation, but it was entirely within an acceptable range.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hi malgo
    excellent TE post!
    learned alot from the note.
    I have to say, i've never eaten horse meat before and i'm not sure if I ever want to - something about that seems wrong to me.

    and its interesting to read John's comments about boiled meat compared to roasted meat.

    and as you mentioned, this is a very very strange looking building, but that also makes it better :)
    keep these shots coming, they're great!
    cheers

    Hi Barbara
    its great to see you back on TE again :)
    and I see you were visiting Prague! what a beautiful city this is right? I hope you enjoyed your time here.

    looks like you had excellent weather too, lots of sun lots of daylight and warm temperatures.

    the long lines and colors are what make this one work so well, the splashes of color come alive. love the depth and the V shape. well done
    cheers

    Hi Piotr
    I have never seen this before, I wonder if anyone else has posted it on TE in the past?

    too bad there isn't a person in the shot for scale and size perspective, its kind of hard to tell how large or small they are.

    its beautiful though, and the lighting you captured it in really makes the scene pop, you couldn't have asked for a better light. very clear and sharp too. excellent subject
    cheers

    Hi Ike
    wow...what the heck is this???
    great subject to post, let me read the note to learn more about it.

    i appreciate the effort to show us the best possible POV, thanks for that.

    its such a unique building, i wonder if there are more like it in the city. too bad it doesn't work properly though, but its still a wonderful piece of history. very cool post

    Hi Serge
    so you were in Bruges, lucky you, perhaps one day I'll get to see this place in person as well.

    seems to be so photogenic, there are plenty of beautiful photos of this city on TE, now we can add your shot to that list as well.

    the side lighting is the key, the buildings look warm and cozy, looks like a pleasing place to be, to spend the afternoon. fine post from this angle

    Hi Stephen
    one of my favorite things to do on holiday is to see the inside of Castles and Mansions - kind of what we see here.
    its fun to see how the rich people lived way back in the day.

    sounds like alot of people walk through here each day and each year, I hope they kept the inside as natural as possible and didn't exaggerate the truth.

    its fun to investigate all the subjects in the room and try to picture yourself living here. great indoor shot, excellent post for TE
    cheers

    Hi John
    oh yes, the man in the WS...thats something we men can all relate to isn't it! Probably waiting for his wife to finish up her window shopping haha

    I think you needed to add a bit more color to your photo John! wow...those are amazingly bright colors, especially in that bright sunlight. you can see these from miles away.

    its good that you added in the people in the bg too, that completes the scene smartly, and I really like the vertical POV, everything worked out so well. hope you enjoyed your time here!

    PS
    waiting for the new season of Family Guy...bring it on already!
