This photograph marks my 100th posting. I would like to thank all who have been generous enough to review my photos up to this day.
I would like to dedicate this photograph to Mister Danos kounenis, who has dedicated one of his photographs to me once. It is my wish and my sincere desire to dedicate this particular image to him. It is absolutely unnecessary to go into details describing his personality to those who know him already. For those people who are not as fortunate as I am to know him currently, I would encourage and invite you to visit his site at TE. It is my privilege and honour to have him as a friend. Thank you Danos.

At the outset, congratulations on your 100th posting. The manner in which you have centered hub of the ferris wheel, right behind the head of the rider in the equestrian statue creates an impression that it light is radiating from his head.
It is an excellent dedication to Danos, a most gracious member of Trekearth. I will write to you separately to give you the html code to make Danos Kounenis a live link.

I like the choice of the POV and vertical. The composition of the sculpture fits well with the wheel. Sounds like a fan, a simple visual result interesting.

Toutes mes félicitations pour ta 100e! et elle est vraiment très belle. Je remarque comme Bulent que le coeur de la roue est très bien placé. Belle lumière aussi car on ne manque pas les détails de la statue. Beau ciel bleu qui souligne bien tout ce blanc. Bravo.

Splendid placing the statue in silhouette as contrast to the big wheel.
Superb sharpness and graphic effect of the iron structure.
Have a nice weekend,

hai scelto un ottimo POV legando la statua equestre alla ruta.
Azzurro che fa da sfondo ad una immagine originale e ben realizzata,

Hello dear Nobu-san
A beautifully captured picture! This being your 100th post is an important personal milestone. In addition is your dedication to esteemed TE member Danos. The radiating lines of the ferris wheel creates a fine 'halo' for the statue on horseback. What is critical here IMHO is the framing & you've achieved that wonderfully!
With best Regards Nobu-san

Hello dear friend Nobu,
What a nice act dedicating this one to one of the best photographers on TE and congratulations on your 100th photo. I like the way you have placed the giant wheel right behind the horse rider.The horseman's head looks like the sun and the spokes of the wheel look like the rays. I also like the color contrast. A very creative image with excellent lighting, colors and sharpness.
With warm regards,
