I just realized that 5 years passed since I've been here..Other members in 5 years have 5 times more images than i do and of course more experience..Sometimes this bothers me because I think that I haven't tried and therefore improved as I would like..Especially when after a period of absence i return, in the beginning i'm always disappointed. and this because I see how easy it is to be forgotten when you don't have daily contact with the other members..And this is one of the disadvantages of Trekearth for me..I don't seek for the rating but the criticism which for me is more important..I've never commented on a photo that i don't like just to be liked and therefore get critiques for my photos..There should be only honest critiscism here for this site to be improved..Because there are a lot of great and talented photographers who don't have the attention that they deserve and it's a shame..
Ι have learned many things from you all and i really hope for some things to change for the better here, so we can all enjoy this amazing thing called photography!

certainly a different photo compared to your last upload in black and white.
I absolutely love this one!
the steps, the understated lighting, the shadow on the wall, the orange color that sparkles, and best of all - the sunlight warming the entire scene.
your best shot yet!!

This is an exceptionally eye-catching and well composed picture. The woman wears the right colours for the photo and is captured at the right split of a second. She is almost entirely seen against the dark blue sky but her feet are still carrying her up the stairs, giving us a sense of movement and direction. The horizontal lines of the steps contrast the general vertical dominance of the picture. The black frame also matches her black hair perfectly.
I would say this is a perfect composition.

You have chosen an excellent picture to celebrate 5 years on TE - congratulations. The POV and the orange and blue colours are bold. The woman is placed so well on the steps and against the blue sky. A very striking image with interesting shapes and colour contrasts. A very powerful picture.

what a great way to celebrate your jubilee. The sun offered you a great opportunity here and you took it and did the best!!! The lighting is outstanding, as I, honestly, seldom see.

I was, as by routine, checking the thumbprints and this photo struck my eyes immediately. The eye-catching woman is silhoutted against the blue sky, perfectly positioned in the composition and with a surrounding of these steps. Very good colours! I realised this must be a favourite picture, and then I saw that my brother already had seen the same thing. A coincidence...

Γεια σας Χρυσούλα, μια πολύ καλή εικόνα του αυτό το υπέροχο εικόνα για να γιορτάσουμε την επέτειό σας στο TE, ένα καλό σουτ με ευκρίνεια και όμορφα χρώματα, πολύ καλή δουλειά, συγχαρητήρια για τα πάντα. Καλή νύχτα και ευτυχισμένη εβδομάδα. TFS.

Congratulations on your anniversary!
I love the soft warm light of your shot and the simplicity of elements, which makes the photo so impressive - there is nothing unnecessary in the picture that would distract the viewer.
You chose an excellent angle for this shot and timed it perfectly, I like how the woman is just about to reach the top of the stairs and her shadow is just about to walk into the shady part.
Compliments and greetings from Prague,
CLODO (30702) 2011-10-31 1:11
A good title for this colorfull shot, well framed. I would have taken the picture 1 second before in order not to have her shadow mixed with the the wall's one.
Your recent pictures show that you are leaving common shots (landscapes, streets, architecture) to look for a new vision, with mainly human presence. This is the way I am taking for the moment my photos.
To get the most of TE, you should post regularly, and write critics.
C'mon, let's go for another year!

I simply love the subject and the story of your composition..great note too...excellent colours..nice steps...one thing i am just curious here is that ..if the shadow of the lady can be seen here..that would have been perfect as far as your story here is concerned..still its a lovely composition in my eyes...

Non potevi festeggiare meglio i tuoi 5 anni in TE, grande costanza , la tua galleria e' piena di bellissime immagini, lo testimonia questa foto con dei contrasti ed una luce fantastica, eccezionale la qualita' e la tecnica.
Complimenti ottimo scatto e auguri ancora per questa lunga e piacevole presenza.
BennyV (13848) 2011-10-31 2:33
Sublime light and a sensitive composition.
Strong colours and framing.
That shadow on the wall.
That bright red, that deep blue.
Juzo (4349) 2011-10-31 7:05
A strong sense of geomerty, the composition benefits from the lines and shapes but also the colours and light work well together, and of course the timing with the woman balances it all. Nice shot.
sacimar (25975) 2011-10-31 7:08

Belle composition! J'aime beaucoup la luminosité et le rouge qui éclate!
josepmarin (57831) 2011-11-16 1:14
already I know that it is a bit late, but I want to congratulate you in your 5th Anniversary on this site.
The image chosen to celebrate it is very suitable and has a nice symbolism, with the steps which are the graphical representation of our learning here.
I like the perspective of the stairs towards the blue sky, the powerful and saturated-well colors, and the luminosity of the image, that increases its beauty because of the magnificent shades.
An excellent work.
