    Bonsoir mon conseiller de voyage. :)

    I can't recall seeing these rickshaws in Paris, but then again...i wasn't really looking either!? lol Interesting facts about how they're used and taxed, I would have never guessed it to be on a sliding scale of manpower. TE really is quite an educational site, in picture and text!

    He may not be able to compete with the buses, but this would be a fun, and more personal way to get around town and probably pick up even more insider facts from a local. Noels note is perfect...the shark bus is on the prowl! haha Great shot, you timed it just right to show two different options of transportation in this active city. On y va!! :) Bonne semaine mon ami du Sud.

    Ciao Luciano,

    The devil is in the details, and this picture goes to prove you have a keen photographic eye! Ordinary for most people, you turned a routine section of beach and its shells into a work of art. A smart observation to see the opportunity provided by the single feather amongst the masses. So many neat details and colors contained within this frame. Very well done! Enjoy the new week. Take it easy.

    Friendly wishes,

    Hi Burak,

    A slight obstruction by the foreground plant takes away a little bit of the overall view, but we can still clearly see the mosque in its full grandeur. We're you hiding behind it, trying to "sneak" a forbidden picture? :) Clear and sunny, you had a well lit opportunity to showcase the many fine details and architectural design from this vantage point, and a smart composition to evenly separate each minaret. Enjoy the new week. Take good care.

    Friendly wishes,

    Hi Murat,

    Hmmm, what to believe...what to believe?? Regardless of its veracity, it's an intriguing shot. Great that you included the gentleman on the right, it could have easily been a rather static result otherwise, but really ties one subject with the other in a fine manner. Interesting lighting too, the green tint plays a strange role here, projecting an almost "club-like" element. (Hope that doesn't sound too sacrilegious!? :o) Enjoy the new week. Take it easy.

    Hi Ney,

    That's one long flight alright, but well worth the time and effort, yeah! :) So glad you are able to look on the positive side and fully enjoy the experiences. A colorful corner you've photographed, and one with some action as well in the oncoming tram. I like the lively atmosphere this conveys, and the heavy clouds above give a nice touch of contrast on a few different levels. Even in the smaller image size, the detail and quality look good on my monitor...but I did open it up in a new window for a larger view just the same. :) Clear and sharp, and well framed for effect. Enjoy the new week. Take care.

    Hi Ourania,

    Your note pretty much sums up what I can only assume to be the very friendly and welcoming attitude of the Greeks. What a great gesture for this gentleman to come to the aid of a stranger and his attempt to dock. Come for the islands allure, stay for the unconditional friendship. :)

    And talk about a perfect link of color between the boat and workers overalls, one literally pulling both sides of the frame together! Maybe you have us trained by now, I can't help but notice the reflections along the harbor, even though it might not have been a conscious decision for this given capture. ;) Enjoy the new week. Take good care.

    Salut Cricri,

    J'ai l'habitude de m'arrêter pour une "cuisine de rue" quand je suis en voyage, mais j'aurais sans doute profiter de prendre le temps de déguster un repas dans ce type de réglage...magnifique! Je pourrais même pas besoin de manger, de s'asseoir simplement ici et profiter de l'ambiance Méditerranéenne. A wonderful view with many shades of blue...hey, une rime! :) (La rime fonctionne mieux en Anglais lol) Pleine de couleurs chaudes et accueillantes, et je suppose que le repas est très bien aussi. :) Bon appétit mon ami!

    Bises du désert,

    an elegant and beautifully executed shot of this grand old château. It looks so impressive and peaceful in this gloriously cropped shot. Lots of fine detail and an irresistible reflection make it work so perfectly.
    Wonderful!

    Hello Gladys
    love the light and simplicity of this glorious Devon image. Have to agree Autumn is knocking at the door and I have to admit I am loathe to open it and let her in, but I am powerless to stop it, but I can at least enjoy this beautiful image in the meantime.

    Hello Ike
    I cannot imagine how frightening it must be to hear first the siren and then to witness the subject matter of these two images. All I can say is I just hope some sort of resolution can be found in these desperate times in the troubled history of your homeland. Violence is never the answer and I do hope you and your fellow countrymen can stay as safe as possible. All the very best Ike.

    Hello Craig
    superb shot of this stadium, it just begs being captured with a W/A lens doesn't it? Your POV and use of the symmetry and straight lines make it work so perfectly, and therein lies the problem with the way they squash landscape images on this site. I share your frustration because you obviously go to great lengths to post flawless images and this is degraded by the way the site is run. Not sure how we get this changed though, and I still cannot access the forums to see what others think or put in my six-penneth! As for leaving the community here - well all too many great photographers have already gone and it has made no difference to how this site operates, which is a shame, but it has diluted the quality of what appears on a day to day basis.

    superb wild life shot this. It captures the beauty and character of these crazy birds so perfectly. Love the low profile and detail and also the impression that it is about to go scurrying off and hastily exit the right side of the frame. Stunning shot!
