    Hi Georg,

    Even on a cloud filled, rainy day there's so much color and enticing atmosphere in little towns such as this. In fact, the wet pavement actually helps create a nice reflected effect. Perhaps not ideal for the camera, but not something we can control...so why not make the most out of it and snap a few pictures anyway, yeah? :) Picturesque and charming, without question. Enjoy the rest of the day. Take care.

    Regards,

    Jason

    Hi Miro,

    I may not be a "drinker," but am one who loves pattern...and well, there's a ton of it here! :) This has great layered effects, the obvious being of course the vertical alignment of bottles, one shelf stacked upon another....but what I find the most intriguing is the layered depth, as each row progresses backwards in repeating fashion with subtle variations in light. And speaking of light, there's just enough reflection of the glass case to add another dimension and visual effect. Bright, colorful and fun...a relatively simple layout, which has great appeal. Have one on me. :) Take care.

    Friendly wishes,

    Jason

    Hello Noel
    a wonderfully composed and executed bluey hour shot this. I love the mix of blue and green here that sandwich the magnificent cathedral so delicately, and what a wonderfully enticing light and lead in. Hand held I assume, and if so, you must have held your breath or something because there is so much beautifully sharp detail to admire here.

    Stunning!

    Hello Kasia
    a wonderful shot of this fine young fellow and so nice to think that life goes on as normal despite the news reports. A world away from the UK now, where taking pictures of non family member children in public places is frowned on and seen as something sinister. A real shame.

    looks like you have more leaves on your trees than down here, the wind and rain has stripped them so quickly this year. That special autumn light again that makes wonderful tones and shadows on these ancient walls. Looks beautiful!

    well I like it mate! Lots of arty tones and an air of mystery too. Looks almost moonscape if you ignore the trees, and I think the footprints make it all the more effective and intriguing.

    Wonderful!

    You asked about the tall mast like building in my London shot today. This is the British Telecom Tower built in 1962 it was the first building to be taller than St Paul's Cathedral and was the tallest London structure until 1980, when the first financial district skyscrapers started to appear. It used to be open to the public and had a rotating restaurant at the top, but the tower was closed to the public in 1980 for security reasons. The IRA did manage to explode a bomb in the restaurant toilets in 1971. B.

    Hello John
    as an avid football and squash player in my time, this sport never gave me anything like the excitement I got from the former so, like you, it has never been one that I took up or really enjoy watching. My old boss would play in all weathers and this could easily be him on the tee! (expletive deleted).

    Makes for a fascinating study though!

    Hi Costantino,

    A sunset everyone can appreciate, an easy choice to photograph, right? :) Love the silhouetted objects and human figure on the bike, everything came about just proper for this moment in passing. Great colors and relaxed atmosphere in conjunction, a great way to end my day as well. Take good care. All the best.

    Friendly wishes,

    Too bad we didn't know each other in 2002 when you were in SLC for the Olympics, a fun meeting that would have been with the world there as well. :)

    Hello Mr Heat Miser

    Had our first freeze last night with the old mercury dropping below zero, so stop being a miser and send us some of your heat big guy!

    We also have a FOG warning for tonight too, so winter's shadowy fingers are slowly creeping up on us now.

    That aside I am so impressed with the interior of SLC's capitol building. It is huge and that sense of scale is so well illustrated here with these mini-tourists. A well chosen POV with lots of wonderfully balanced symmetry and superbly controlled light too. It reminds me a little of the Science Museum in London, but the stonework here is a shade lighter then there, but still as magnificent though.

    A beautifully executed and presented image - I really like it!

    Enjoy your Terrrkey and Thaaaaanksgiving Weekend and get on with those long neglected chores sunbeam. Enjoy yourself and don’t get any on yer! Gravy that is :-))))

    a sad yet fascinating shot this. The children's faces here tell the story and you have captured their mood perfectly. They do look fairly well fed and healthy though but most kids would be smiling happily at the camera.

    Hello Craig
    like this B&W study of this part of Death Valley. I have been there a few times but never with a digital camera and never really explored it as it was usually a crossing to get to another part of the US. A very arty shot and one that I feel should be gracing the centrefold of an album by U2.

    you are fast becoming the master of light here on TE. This is another into the sun shot that works beautifully. Your control is amazing and I would imagine retina burning too! No loss of detail and so effective - inspiring stuff.
