    Hi Maciej,
    A beautiful and to me a unique view of this place, I have never seen a composition of these well known buildings like this. To have it under such warm light and striking blue sky is so cool. All the elements are perfectly placed in the frame. Great photo, thanks as always.

    Hi Craig

    Another fine shot from the northern part of my country. The fine lighting brings out such a brilliant colour palette here. Again the impressive mountains play a leading role. Well, at least you had some sun on your trip. It`s quite exciting isn`t it, to explore new places and you never know what nature reveals around the next turn. Beautiful image:) Thanks.

    Hi Hayati,
    I would never think to shoot a scene like this in a frame like this, and my loss for that, as this looks superb. It really draws the eye and and there is an excellent sense of vast wide open space. It also seems so appealing to climb inside the image and walk up that hill. Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Craig,
    A hearty congratulations on number 1000, that's an impressive number of fine photos to post and share and a fe collection of brilliant memories as well. Been a pleasure viewing and learning from your gallery for the time I've been on the site.
    And what a cold and frosty photo to post to mark the number too. I really believe you when you say you almost blew into the sea, this really looks like the kind of place that would be like that. Such a sense of cold with that sky, and those icy mountains. Thre really is an excellent atmosphere here. Really cool photo, and thanks as always for sharing.

    Cheers to your next 1000 posts!

    Hi Maged,
    The light on this fine cityscape is perfect, and the reflects doubles up the appeal of this whole photo. Vibrant and lively and such vivid colors. All surrounded by the fine blue of sky and water. Well seen and well taken,

    Hi Ken,
    Fascinating place and a great documentary shot of it as it is today. To think this place has gone from centre of cilivations to lost in jungle, and today it is as your photo. The light has brought a lot of detail out in the stone, and the way you composed this, the trees beyond look like they are waiting for their chance to jump in and claim this place back. Great shot, thanks for sharing.

    Hi Serge
    Really nicely spotted modern architecutre scene. I thought at first the windows re shipping containers! Excellent timing too with the effect of the light glowing through the frosted glass on the staircase. You really composed this nicely, thanks for sharing.

    Hi Craig

    First of all - contgratulations on your 1000th photo posted on TE! What an achievement. Even in the overcast weather you had the place looks amazing. I have to travel there some day. This excellent photo reminds me of paintings of the Norwegian painter Karl Erik Harr. You can also check out this painting on the internet: A painting by Even Ulving, recognizable? what do you think? Somehow I think the few colours enhances the dramatic impression of the landscape. Lovely shot that goes into my favourite-foreign-pictures-of-Norway-theme:)

    Enjoy your WE, and good luck with your next 1000!

    Greetings, Erling

    Hi Eleu,
    Very nice night photo, and the Eiffel tower there makes a nice focal point above the lead of the neon street down below. Vegas must be some place to see in person.

    Hi Muhammad,
    What a place, your point of view is superb and the soft colors of the building are quite unexpected for a building with such stature, they soften the imposing bulk of the building so well. You give it the appearance almost of a pyramid too adding to the already superb range of lines and shapes to see. Thanks for the excellent note, I can appreciate this fine building and photo much more knowing that much more about it.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Gyorgy,
    I know this building from the game Sim City :) I built it many times but despite that have not seen many pictures of it. This is a really eye catching scene of it, not only the building but the people and shadows and that superb sunburst. A beautiful choice in black and white,

    Hi Gyorgy,
    This is a moody and masterful photo, such a sense of dread is invoked I me looking attune dark shadows in this place, but pierced expertly by the bright foreground light, which itself highlights the beautiful texture of the ground. Perfect lighting conditions to take this work of art, really well done.

    Hi Adrian,
    A town of red sandstone, that must be some amazing sight to see. It's strange, as from the thumbnail I thought this castle like building was sme huge fortress, and it leaps out but on clos view I see it is a much smaller building, but no less impressive. Beautiful lead in to the shot with the road. Very cool photo.

    Hi Kari,
    This is a great photo of this waterfall, which has such a cool sense of envy and excitement to it, I think the water overlapping the edge but not hitting the ground on the left do so much to the picture. Well worth the soaking to get this photo, well done.

    Hi Silvio,
    This is a beautiful place, and your photo of it has such a great combination of light on all the main subjects and the shadow on the left. That sky is a shade of blue I never see, so clear and vibrant. The two men in the bottom right add a lot of life to the picture and a brilliant inclusion.

    Hi JC
    There could not possibly be a better view of this castle, you make is stand out almost in 3D and it looks so strong and proud. An imposing looking place. The light is perfect too, there is such a great thing about green, grey and blue combination. Really nice place and photo, thanks for sharing.

    Hi May,
    This is a really striking image, and your placement of all the elements in the photo is superb. It's like a picture in a picture, and those rays coming out of the image on the building add a lot of life. Really nicely seen and captured photo.

    Hi Bornav,
    This is a beautiful portrait. There is a strong sense of wellness and power to the view, the woman looks intensely into her work, so the image feels so natural and that has a very timeless feel. The image is somewhat so,bre to me, but the bright colorful cloths contrast that and make me focus on the girls expression. Very nice work, thanks for sharing.
    Best wishes
