    Hi Ourania,

    Isn't it amazing what a difference light can do for a picture, dare I say...it's like night and day! :)

    Like a bag of snakes, this pile of rope is a crazy maze of direction and texture, all enhanced by that beautiful sunlight. The definition of detail and dimension is greatly fortified by the play of light and shadow.

    Aside from the obvious main subject of the rope itself, it's the accented colors of powder blue and red trim from the boat that really catches my eye. A scene that I'm sure many have passed by without regard, but once again, you've realized the opportunity presented and ended up with a solid result...and a title befitting the visual. Glad I don't have to sort it out! :) Enjoy the rest of your day. Take care.

    Friendly wishes,

    Jason

    Hi Mariusz
    Nice to see this now having viewed your latest post, an excellent piece of history and a fine gift for two nations to share. This is a fine view of this excellent artistic work, and under perfect light. The blue sky behind is a great compliment to the tones of the wood structure
    Thanks again

    Hi Mariusz
    An impressive tomb, and quite unusual to my eyes too, I have never seen one on raisd columns like this. You comsed the scene beautifully and as mentioned above, the light is excellent, bringing such great color out across the view. That reflection on the shimmering water is such a bonus. Really lovely capture and great note, thanks!
    All the best

    Hi Burak
    Fantastic colors in this sky, and a much more pleasant and calm face to Ibiza than that I am used to seeing.no loud clubs and drunk people here, just father and sun enjoying this spectacular sunset moment and creating an excellent silhouette for your lens. Great shot.

    Hi Gigi,
    An excellent subject, the vivid bright reds do catch the eye as soon as I opened the gallery, and closer view makes the scene even more interesting as I try to work it out, as mentioned, hte inclusion of the silhouetted heads is nicely thought out giving depth and good composition to the whole.

    Hi Brian,
    Really cool way to create an awesome sense of height in the buildings, they really soar! It is great that they left these old cranes, as you say for an air AOf authenticity but also because they kind of look like dancing robots. Where else in the world could you enjoy a steak while the cast of transformers put on a cabaret show!
    Cheers

    Hi Kryzsztof
    Another beautiful piece of architecture from tis town, and this looks more like a small castle, a design that would always appeal to me. The red and yellow colors of he building look fantastic against the pale blue sky. I am really enjoying your series on Sopot.

    Hi Malgo
    that tree is wonderful, it reminds me of the raggedy trees I see sometimes in Ireland but needless to say the Irish ones are not in places as beautiful as this. Your idea to include the tree had created superb depth and makes this view look so huge, deep and expansive. What a fantastic place and image
    thanks as always

    Hello Athanasios
    a fascinating river-scape this. I love the elegant rocky banks and also the mix of strata colours that stand out so unusually against the turquoise waters. A perfect execution and quality presentation. Looks wonderful!

    Hello Ann
    this place looks cold but so exhilarating and beautiful. The dull grey snowy skies add to the atmosphere and just typifies what I imagine this part of the world to look like. Love it!

    Glad you like my recent posts, you asked about the post processing - it is a bit of an ongoing experiment using some HDR techniques. It has something of a "Marmite" appeal about it with some loving the results yet others saying that it looks unreal. I especially like the effect on the "Tall Ships" as it seems to capture some of the timeless old world appeal of these craft. I get the impression that activity here on TE is on the decline. I still cannot access the forums to get an idea of the mood and gauge opinion unfortunately. Thanks again for your interest Ann. B X

    Hiya Kasia

    At f2.8, the drops should really be on the same plan to be sharp, and you managed well the very big contrast, even if this not the sun but its reflection on the pond. Good off centered subject. I really like the WS, more creative pictures than the main post, but as you said, the moderators would apply the TOS and so cancelled them.
    Cheers

    a clever crop this, it is perfectly balanced with all the angles just right, and the result brings out all the wonderful Swiss character of these chalet type houses. Original and compelling imagery!

    Hi Olivier
    looks like you were in Iceland almost at the same time as our TE friend Roland!

    in this shot we can see the wind scurrying along the tops of the water making those streaks, and the top of that tiny plot of land in the water has the perfect light on it.

    another beauty from Iceland

    This are almost war histories this little girl behind this old window.

    a small port it may be, but it looks so inviting as a real safe haven from what looks like fairly choppy waters in this shot. A beautiful little seaside town and captured irresistibly.

    love it!
    how could anyone NOT be impressed with this wonderful country of Iceland.

    excellent shot that shows its beauty, its landscape.
    the colors in this shot really do dazzle the senses, and I like the slope at the top to draw us inwards and upwards.

    well done

    Hi Mariusz
    well, looking at your map now I know where to find Tarnow! Its not far from Krakow.

    so listening to what the teacher had to say about Bem, did it change your own opinion? were you a bit disappointed?

    Personally, I think it looks quite beautiful!
    I would be honored to have such a burial site when I die - but i have a funny feeling that won't be happening!

    I'm not sure how you could have improved on this photo, looks great to me. warm and attractive colors for sure.

    interesting note
    cheers
