    Hi Benny
    now this is an elegant looking shot my friend.
    lots of geometric shapes going on.
    the golden yellow tones are very rich looking, and when contrasted by the blues it comes out even stronger.
    warm lighting helps too, lots to appreciate here
    cheers

    Hello Daniel,

    The shallow balconies, if you can call them that, are reminiscent of some French style architecture in New Orleans, Louisiana. What is unusual here are the colors. The combination is highly complementary.

    Hello Craig,

    Thanks for alerting me to the newest edition of Blarney Caste that you've posted. Using a fisheye lens you've emphasized the height of the structure. it's an effective shot. With the tiny windows that can be used as arrow slits, the place is imposing and probably quite impenetrable.

    Warm regards,

    Hi Malgo
    too bad to hear about your experience at La Defense :(
    but I also encountered the same problem when i asked local people where it was...people had NO IDEA what I was talking about! haha....seems like only photographers know about it :)

    I guess I can add this to the list of places I didn't see in Paris...oops :)

    this is so colourful, so many different colours blending in, its very ornate too, quite rich looking. perhaps some people would find it too bold, but I like it. cool post, looks great in your gallery as its something different.
    cheers

    Hello Stephen,

    As I've said in the past, selecting the edge of a building as a focal point, as you've done on the right, you create an excellent example of two-point perspective. The building looks like it might date back to the early 19th century.

    Warm regards,

    Bulent

    Hello Malgo,
    This looks like a fairly unique ceiling. I didn't know it existed. Considering the light conditions you managed very good and well saturated colours, also excellent sharpness. I hope you brought sturdy shoes for all this walking all days long.

    Hi Luciano
    fine post here. You know what this looks like? its like silver being melted down at a hot temperature and its oozing.
    its so cool. neat to have a reflection in the water, and i like the arches that are formed up the frame. fun shot

    Hello Benny,

    You were highly creative in selecting one of the large ornamental vases to frame a photo of the second vase. The steps leads the eyes right at the subject.
    Well done

    Hi Ike
    its always great to have these TE meeting memories, nice to meet people we 'talk' to online everyday :)
    the exposure is what stands out the most on this one, its absolutely perfect in this dark lighting.
    spot on. excellent clarity of the building on the right.
    fond memories i'm sure. Bev and Len are super sweet

    Hello Nicolas,
    An excellent conversion to B&W with the dark trees covered with snow on both sides of the icy road. The effect of the lights of the cars is very eye-catching. Driving on the left side could be very dangerous, especially in this kind of weather ;-).
    Kind regards,

    Hi Krzysztof
    hmmm....we dont' get to see enough castles posted on TE from Poland, this is a nice surprise.
    do you have any more photos of it, up close or from the inside? I'd love to see them.

    Looks like the walls are very much intact and the stone is in fine condition as well. fine post, fine subject in this sweet lighting. cheers

    Hi Lars
    this photo really does show us the size and height of these old mills, much larger than I was expecting it to be.
    the sails are huge too, I wonder how much noise they make as they spin around.

    as i'm looking through the gallery page, this one stands out because of its middle-centre composition of the focal point, and also bc of the lighting. sweet shot indeed.

    PS
    What a shame that you're arriving 1 day before i fly out to Iceland!!! I'm working day shift on Aug 7th and 8th. I work 12 hour shifts as a nurse at the hospital. I won't get home until 8pm. Is there anyway you can change your dates so you arrive on the Aug 6th?

    cheers

    Hi Bulent
    this landscape reminds me so much of what we see here locally in and around the shores of Vancouver. In fact, i thought thats where you took this one :)

    here we have a photo that proves we don't always need strong bright lighting and illumination. here the darkness is the key, providing ample atmosphere and mood, its this darkness that sets the tone right away. I also like how you left some open water to the far left rather than cutting the scene off close to the shore. nice shot.

    PS
    if you like my previous post of Blarney Castle, you may enjoy my newest post of the same castle today :)
    cheers

    beautiful aren't they? I certainly think so.
    you have yourself a fine photograph here my friend.

    Hi Bev
    yes, what is the real story here. I guess we could easily come up with several of our own interpretations, and thats all part of the mystery that we enjoy so much.

    the womans facial expressions are the main attraction in my opinion, and I also like how the man is bending down to her level, really trying to make eye contact - but he's not succeeding :)

    fun interaction caught on camera
