    Hi John,
    this is so beautiful! The architecture of the city hall is so elegant and elaborate. Just behind nice row of townhouses start. Interesting side light resulted in a pleasant effect.
    Excellent work!

    Czesc Krzysztof,
    wow!!!
    wstydze sie w ogole cokolwiek tu pisac. To jest po prostu doskonala praca i nic nie mozna dodac ani ujac.
    Przede wszystkim swietna pora. Blue hour jest juz w pelni choc budynki moze nie najlepiej oswietlone. Sylwetki budynkow przyjemnie odcinajace sie na lekko jeszcze swiecacym niebie. Odbicie doskonale! No i oczywiscie rzad slicznych budynkow prowadzi wzrok ku temu najciekawszzemu i najbardziej ooryginalnemu, jedynemu takiemu na swiecie zurawiowi.
    Doskonale wykonanie, takie wlasnie zdjecie mi sie rowniez marzy zrobic kiedys w Gdansku!
    Gratulacje!!!

    Hi Abmdsudi,
    fantastic capture! You have been in a great spot at the perfect moment and very well used the opportunity here. I like very much the vivid colors of the picture with brownish color of the water adding a nice touch. It looks very peaceful and relaxing.

    Hi Ann,
    great photo work. I wouldn't know how to take a decent photo under such circumstances. I usually quit when the weather is bad, or even I stay rather at home. But you have turned it clearly to your advantage with the dark sky contrasting nicely with the snow covered land.
    Very attractive picture full of atmosphere,

    Czesc Gosia,
    znakomita nocna fotografia! Jestem milosnikiem nocnych a wlasciwie blue hour zdjec ale jesli ktos patrzy na moja galerie to ich nie dostrzeze. Wstyd przyznac ale nie robilem ich juz chyba z rok albo i dluzej. Nie mam kiedy...
    Swietny pomysl tutaj z nowoczesnymi budynkami dobrze oswietlonymi. Ten pas muru na pierwszym planie sam w sobie bylby nieciekawy ale w polaczeniu z dwiema postaciami daja doskonaly efekt. Postacie wprowadzaja tak wiele zycia tutaj.
    Doskonala praca, gratulacje!

    Hi Pilar,
    beautiful presentation of this famous bridge which in this case you have used to present something else. Places of romantic meals are something which I also remember quite well although in case of this bridge I remember being exhausted after walking it as the day was hot and humid, but it was worth it. It was a long time ago so my photos from NY are analog and not very good quality. With a sentiment I watch photos of others from this great place.
    This one has a unique atmosphere, the light was extraordinary and it resulted in an interesting mood.
    It also seems like an original viewpoint to present this famous landmark.
    Excellent work,

    Czesc Piotr,
    wow to naprawde robi wrazenie. Tatry bardzo przypominaja atmosfera Alpy.
    Znakomita kompozycja z tym grzbietem gorskim tworzacym zakole niczym wulkanu. Dawniej nie przepadalem za tak ostrymi cieniami ale teraz odbieram je bardziej jako znak czegos naturalnego.
    Swietne niebo i doskonaly horyzont pelen warstw I chyba rowniez mgly. Prawdziwy opad szczeny, gratulacje!

    Hi John,
    not only the unique green color but also extraordinary light contributed to very interesting ambience. It feels at first like in a southern country. Later the dark clouds remind that it is north. Nice contrast between the well lit foreground and the dark background.
    Great composition with the little pier making a nice asymmetric lead into the scene. Boats and the person walking in add more life both visually and literally.
    I would never guess it is Scotland. I like such surprises.
    Excellent work!

    Hi Lars,
    lovely skyline indeed. Great addition to your collection of capital cities. The tower seems to have a unique shape which makes it recognizable once one has seen it before. Nice green area in the foreground.
    Very well done!
    I am jealous of your collection!

    Hi Gerrit,
    I am so jealous! In England it was miserable this year. I mean for English it was a ok summer but for people from outside it was just so bad. It seems even northern part of continental Europe was better off this year.
    Lovely presentation here with warm pleasant colors. The houses have nice colors, you have well taken care about the foreground, everything is so pretty! The sailboat adds another beautiful touch.
    Excellent work!

    Hi rosemary,
    this structure seems somehow out of place here. There is some contrast between the modern looking installation and the unspoiled nature stretching far to the horizon. I wouldn't guess it is an art, I thought it may be some power related station...
    You had a wonderful weather there. It seems like a wonderful region, I have to see it someday :)

    I am sorry again that our meeting did not work out, but I was quite tired and busy after return from Poland and I guess your schedule must have been even more busy... I hope we will have another chance again.

    Hi Paul,
    Yes indeed: it seems like a concrete forest. Without the map it would be difficult although I wonder now if the Japanese alphabet would be of any use for me anyway...
    The river at least seems like a good point of reference and it is really nice to have it here passing diagonally.
    Very impressive view, great work,

    Hi Craig,
    I suspect you have actually taken photos of the bride in this spot, haven't you? And the stairs are so narrow that I can imagine that there may have been not enough space for three people...
    Yes you are right about the necessity of photographing these famous spots. That is what I call the postcard-like-approach, I think it is quite normal to have a souvenir like this. I dream about taking this one too.
    Nice angle here. The stairs make a nice foreground.
    I would like to see it a bit wider but I see you have used the wide angle already.
    Fantastic spot, I am so jealous of it,
