    Bonjour Jean Jacques

    C'est original, d'habitude on les voit de l'avant, mais ton effet en contreplongée et les cailloux qui volent dans le panache de poussière sont là pour attester que la voiture n'était pas à l'arrêt! avais tu mis ton casque lourd?

    Hi Trevor

    The long landscape size is well adapted to this scenery and the coming rain gives a grey hues to the bacground. The small island seems to prepare to withstand the storm, its pine trees looking as lightning rods.
    nice soft colors.

    Hi Andrea

    you seem to master well the photography and know what to do to get what you have in your mind. We don't feel it's an HDR shot (congratulations!) and you get mainly 2 colors: a bursting orange well lighted by the overall grey hues, except the white roofs reflections.
    The movement of the wheel contrasts well also with the houses.
    hats off!

    Hello my neighbour John!

    That's not street photography, but you still have a human presence.
    Nicely spotted, pin sharp, with the orange bursting out of the grey sky, and the women dressed in black hooking on their mast. Though the exposure time is 1/2500s, the propeller of the higher plane is blurred, so giving the sense of motion yet given by the white smoke! But where is the plane N°1?
    Cheers

    Hi Korkut

    I missed it, I should not take holidays! As always a B&W image with a human presence, and here taken at the right moment, enhanced by the many converging shadows of her legs. Her hair position, and the long step she produces indicates that she is in hurry.
    congratulations

    Hello Rosemary

    the same shot as Craig, but
    - you've opted for a vertical format to include the pink flowers at the foreground and the sea at bottom
    - the light is coming from the opposite direction (I feel you take the picture in the morning).
    I like the colors of the houses and parasols of the restaurants.
    My warmest regards

    Hi Craig

    perfect light which illuminates the city on the rocks, coloring in orange the houses, deepening the blue of the sea, creating shadows which give the feeling of the third dimension. Almost no one in the harbour, maybe it was too late and everybody were in the restaurants!

    Hi Lisa

    All the events you write are nothing compare to what is going to happen in Autralia and in the world. Money is governing the world, and destroying it too. I have been in New Caledonia for 10 month during my army period and I remember all the jewels I have seen even at 1 meter above the sea level.
    Nice blue planet picture!

    Hi Malgo
    a superb shot this, and so beautifully detailed. Not been to this part of Benalmadena or on the cable car, but have seen them from the car (I have friends who live near there, just down from Colomares and the Stupa). The Stupa is well worth a visit, if open, as is the Butterfly House, plus Benalmadena Pueblo is so typically Spanish. A good reason to go back eh!?

    Have a great week - B.

    Hi Rosemary
    a touch of deja-vu here as Craig posted a similar shot to this just yesterday, and I commented on it only a few hours ago. Yours is a more expanded view but just as tantalising and beautiful. Awesome place and captured perfectly. As I said to Craig I really should get over to Italy again, shots like this are so inspiring.

    Have a great week - B.

    Hi John
    these amazing performers come down to West Sussex every year to make an appearance at the Shoreham Air Show. But despite my best efforts I have never managed to get a shot like this, it is perfect. I applaud you, the detailing and quality of this image are just superb.

    C'mon B, where's your spirit of adventure....forget the warnings, jump over those fences and get in there for a closer look. Not afraid of a little electricity or raw sewage water, are ya'? :) O.K., better safe than sorry, I get it. lol

    No need to get any closer though when you can pull off this kind of shot anyway, and a lot safer too! I mentioned it before, but I'll say it again, one man's "trash" is another mans treasure. Case in point, this old, decrepit exterior...which is still in better shape than myself!?

    Love the varied, rustic colors and detail you've extracted from this, and all of the broken out windows actually hold an odd charm. A super arrangement of textures and even some graphism, awesome result! Hope all has been going well. Take it easy mate.

    Cheers from across the pond,

    A perfect market scene, the cone hat of the seller being in accordance with the ochre spices well lit by the lateral sun. The lady dress and part of the FG contrasts nicely with these warm colors.

    Hi Andrea

    Welcome to TE
    Stunning picture, and I can't believe it when I read your note "I took the shot under the harsh early afternoon summer Sun", for me it was a winter picture!
    but beware, because according to TOS (terms of service) 1.ix.Infrared photos are not allowed, and so your picture could be deleted by the moderators. Several years before, it won't have stayed so long!!!
    If it happens, publish the normal version and this one as a WS.
    cheers
