    Hi Stephen
    haha....I hate to correct Bulent, who is such an intelligent and well read man, but this isn't precisely an example of two point perspective photography. it ALMOST is :)
    To have a 2 pt perspective you need two vanishing points from your present point of view. the vanishing point on the right is not complete, we can't say for 100% certainly it vanishes off into infinity. But i'm being nit-picky :) I hope Bulent doesn't read this! haha

    anyways enough of that stuff :)
    really appreciate the old history here, especially with the arched gateway on the right, and the contrast between the condition of the stone from the front to the side of the building. thanks for this one
    cheers

    Hello Ryszard,
    I wasn't really aware of this tradition and now that I'm retired all days are equal ;-). But it's a very good photo for any day of the year. There is a beautiful light and the branches of the tree and the birds form a fantastic, attractive pattern of silhouettes.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello, Ryszard!

    The pattern created by the cheese makes the photo very attractive, and I love that, both the image and the cheese! They look tasty! My state of Minas Gerais, in Brazil, is also a great producer of cheese, and I eat it almost every day!

    Very nice view of the mountains, captured with very good depth and colors! The light is also very good, highlighting this flat part in the middle of the photo! Wonderful place and composition!

    Hello Ricardo,
    These rocks are quite peculiar, as you have pointed out, and they form an interesting foreground to this photo. The beautiful scenery is filled with the warm light of the setting sun. It's an attractive and very well exposed photo with lovely colours.

    This low POV makes the castle look even more imposing than it must be! The cloudy sky gives an interesting atmosphere to the photo! Very good colors and sharpness! Wonderful job!

    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,

    Bulent

    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.

    Hi Nicolas
    Expressive sturdy big bare trees with the trunks & branches providing such a structured effect & work of art emphasising the strength, just the hardiest things ever come across that tells a different story for everyone! It's another form of delicate nature beauty in winter and always surprises me how something so tough can survive under such testing conditions. An image that many would pass by and not consider for a shot.....
    Remarkable shot and tfs, Congrats
    Best wishes

    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

    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,
