    Hi Burak,
    I could not quite tell what this was from the thumbnail. I actually thought it was a macro insect shot, as those blue chairs make an excellent set of wings in the photo. It's a very beautiful swimming place, I've never seen anything like this before so closeb to the sea, which itself looks to get very deep very quick. Great photo,
    Cheers

    Hi Brenda
    haha...at first glance at your profile page I thought you went to China or something!
    but yeah, most large cities have their own Chinatown don't they...I know Vancouver does.

    so here we have another subject of the City that I missed...well there's always next time.

    I read Noel's comments, I guess there's no Chinatown in Ireland's major cities????

    fun and cool all in one.
    thanks for this
    cheers

    Hi Takero
    you have the best festival photos on TE, and Japan certainly has the best festivals!

    for a change we don't get to see the happy cheerful faces and expressions, perhaps they're all too tired after the events of the day.

    colorful and cultural, so much to enjoy - love it.
    cheers

    Hi Pedro,
    A huge complex from reading your note, and such fine detail all over it's facade that you captured n your photo. Amazing to think this place is so old, I bet wee would struggle to build its like today, even with modern technology. Beautiful place and shot.

    Hi Omid,
    A fine lush scene, always beautiful to see, the brightness of the sun in that vivid blue sky indicates a very hot day ahead to me,though I admit I am not too familiar with the sun in Ireland :)
    Great idea to use the foreground walls like this, you chose a great angle to place them at, it makes two very distinct areas of the picture,
    Great idea, well done,
    Best wishes

    Hello Gert, This is a kind of picture I like most - people in the street AND monuments. Now there are no limits, we can make all kinds of photos, then only the problem what to show. I am interested in all aspects, so only the people or only monuments is not for me informative.
    This photo has so many interesting details. Curious temples, pagodas but in different shapes. Nice scenes from local life.I see here only one tourist, the girl in green jacket.
    I loo at the prizes of the flights. It would be fun to look now for the places you photographed forty years ago and to compare.
    have a nice weekend

    Hi Abmdsudi,
    Steely is the perfect word for this intense mans gaze, and congratulations on getting this result sour of the moment snapshot, I would aspire to take a portrait like this. Your composition is as ever superb, but that look in the mans eyes, the fact that the moment you caught is just as the tea and the steely eyed man connect, is really cool. The dark background is perfect, as it makes the man look as if he is being illuminated from somewhere, perhaps as a scene from a movie. Your elegant scripting of the tea makes it an important part of shot, even though we cannot see it In the bowl, we can appciate it's importance as part foaming this scene. Beautiful, thanks for sharing.
    Cheers

    Hi Maciej
    Definitely a face there! I always like buildings with faces, and thus combines elegant architecture, great light, and that staring face. Even down to the interior light in the mouth which looks like teeth. Great crop on this.

    Hi Kryzsztof
    This is a very nice modern church, a very unusual spire. Nice to variance in the modern churches, which seem to have a much more varied style than the older counterparts. I really like how you placed both the church and the pylon. The church is great in its own right, the two windows are a little like eyes and when combined with the aggressive stance of the pylon, it looks like two giant robots about to fight, like something from power rangers. I would likely have tried to hid the pylon behind the church, and would never have realised the great effect the pylon brings to the picture. Very cool.
    Cheers

    Hi May,
    What a cool place, it looks like the buildings grew on the rocks like barnacles, colorful vibrant and vivid barnacles. Your timing to take this is brilliant, as that gives the pool of golden lit a brilliant pull both to the eye and the town, it almost looks like the upp buildings are leaning into the gold light too. Very fine photo.

    Hi Bulent,
    It sure is a beautiful building and makes a very interesting architectural and film history place. I like how the building is peering through the branches of the trees like this. Your note is excellent too, how cool go sad you were there when all that movie making took place. Though, I have to be honest, even though it's a classic film, I have never actually seen it!
    Thanks for a great note and photo
    Cheers

    Hello Gert, Delightful all three photos. In this age the children like try to do what their parents, I hope it was just the play. Lovely expression of interest of this small girl. I like also the photo with two other kids. The view of the foreign tourist with a camera must have been something extraordinary. Another precious moment captured.
    Is it rice? I would like to see also the rest of this statue :), it seems interesting.

    Hi Robert
    This is a beautiful and very unique view of he city skyline, you chose a really eautoful vantage point. As I look into the image I see so many eras of architecture on view, and even though the modern towers are bigger, the older ones compete for attention very ll due to their interest. The sky id really fantastic too.

    The brightly colored bg tile mosaic of red green and blue forms a spectacular backdrop to the 2 people in the front. Good sharpness and saturation with punchy light contrasts and nice repetition of the fg square artworks. Tfs.

    Hello Neyvan,

    What an inviting shore. Your composition and the colors and definition you've captured make this an extraordinarily appealing spot. Next December we may be visiting Brazil, On a cruise. Perhaps we can meet.

    Salut Neyvan,

    The yellow honeycomb colored building at right contrasts well against the blue sky. Good sharpness and the Crucifixion scene at left is appropriately placed in front of the blue and white church at left. The motorbike riders in the front animate the scene. Tfs.

    You captured the Porsche 911, "Spider" I believe bathed by brilliant sunshine. After 32 years the car is still elegant and still a powerhouse. The perspective you chose is excellent.
