    Hi Ney,
    I had the pleasure to visit this unique lake. It is quite extraordinary. I like your presentation here with the tufas making intriguing foreground and the lovely scenery opening behind, with great sky as a background too.
    Very well done!

    Ciao Carlo,
    beautiful palace. I remember seeing plenty of them in Rome. They are so elegant and give the town a unique atmosphere. captured in a great light here with the oval sculpture making a nice long shadow,
    Very well done,

    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,

    Hi Angel,
    in County of Jaen I have just visited Ubeda and Baeda. I see there are many more attractive spots to visit there. Lovely setting of the town near the high mountain. The tower looks good set against the mountain. Very well framed too. Excellent work,

    Hi Gert,
    I really enjoy your archival photos and admire their quality. This one is almost as old as I am. It would be great to be able to compare it with present times but I guess not many people travel over there at the moment.
    Nice street scene here with people in what appears as old fashioned clothes. Hard to tell if anything has changed over there.
    Great reportage,

    Hi Gigi,
    beautiful composition with the lavender field. The sunflower adds a nice touch and breaks the symmetry also with a different color. I dream about seeing these fields by myself someday. So far I have some lavender in my garden :)
    Very well done!

    Hi Noel,
    this is my favourite building in Belfast too! Monumental, elegant and impressive. You had quite a bad weather but you did a perfect job with the processing which helped you to turn the conditions to your advantage. The gray sky adds now an interesting dark mood and the architecture seems quite luminous.
    Very well done!

    I think I have it in my TE gallery too,

    Hi Bev,
    I have heard already about the beauty of Cornwall before...
    Very nice foreground. There is something photogenic about the nets and other fishing accessories! Charming town appearing behind made me first think it could be Whitby until I checked the location. It seems like a lovely little town full of atmosphere. Very encouraging to visit. May be next year :)
    Excellent work,

    Hi Asa,
    although this castle stays always in shadow of its big brother on the neighbouring hill -I like it very much too. It is sweet and charming and fits fairy tale stories too.
    You have framed it nicely here.
    Beautiful picture,

    Hi Craig,
    spectacular cityscape. You had an amazing light there with wonderful blue sky pleasantly decorated with the little cuds. Great composition with some colorful roundabouts in foreground and the panorama behind. This is I believe a lesser known POV, although I can of course recognize the black building in the right.
    Jaw dropping view, excellent work!

    Hi Mesut,
    great atmosphere, very well captured here! The silhouettes of the father and son as we assume make the scene so much more interesting. The sky is spectacular of course and so nicely reflected in the water.
    Excellent work!

    Hi Abmdsudi,
    the photo has an enormous emotional charge. I can feel it. Being more or less religious I have recently often the need in my heart to do exactly what the woman does. Pray in all humility and modesty in front of the God.
    Amazing capture, very inspiring for me!

    Hi Agnes,
    beautiful beach. The sand seems so clean. I like the unique style of the houses, probably typical for this area. I have Croatia on my list of countries to visit in the next possible future. Although I have a little daughter now and Croatia has so much to offer that I would like to make a round trip to see it all and it means I have to wait until my daughter can handle it...
    I think I would love it.
    Very well done here!

    Hola Luis,
    what a beautiful view and so pleasantly framed with the lovely arch! Everything is so pretty here. I like the great light, colors and contrast which all make the photo vivid and eye catching. Composition is fantastic too with mentioned arch but also having nice pavement, lamp and vase, of course with the white washed houses in the centre and wonderful sky at the top.
    Excellent work!

    Hi Ike,
    very interesting structure. I think the name is quite funny, I don't know French but in the context of English sentence the word "destroit" resembles a lot "destroyed".
    Quite difficult light you had there but it allows to feel the desert atmosphere.
    Very well done,

    ale miales pecha! Swietnie sobie poradziles z trudnym swiatlem i nawet wykorzystales je znakomicie zeby wprowadzic interesujacy nastroj, znalazles super punkt widzenia no ale rusztowania nie dalo sie ominac. Ma ten widok jednak cos zabawnego w sobie w zwiazku z tym... Pamietam jedno zdjecie MJR na ktorym pokazal kaplice te znana z Da Vinci Code -cala byla w rusztowaniach...

    Hola Maria,
    it is nice sometimes to come back to old photos to revive memories of past travels. I have to do it as well especially that I don't plan any vacations soon :(
    This is a very relaxing photo. I like how the people gathered around the fountain to enjoy the place. I remember this spot well I would love to sit down there and just enjoy...
    Good photo to illustrate it. The oval shape makes a nice curve in the frame.
    Very well done!!

    Bonjour Gigi,
    wow this is very impressive! I like the extraordinary colors! I had a pleasure to walk a bit in a volcanic landscape on Hawaii but I don't have good photos from that time, but the overall feeling is the same: quite unusually colored landscapes, feeling like on a moon rather than on the Earth.
    Wonderful capture here -very encouraging to visit this beautiful island.

    Czesc Krzysztof,
    wspaniale swiatlo. Zawsze sie mowi ze swiatlo przed burza jest najlepsze ale po chwili namyslu musze powiedziec ze chyba jednak swiatlo po burzy. Poza tym mokre chodniki dodaja przyjemnych odblaskow -cos czego nie ma jeszcze przed burza :)
    Znakomita architektura, robi wrazenie. Znalazles sie w dobrym miejscu o dobrym czasie.
    Pozdrowienia
