fantastic light. and yep, southern europe is really busting with life. you can somehow hide it on photos, but in real life it is very crowded and noisy. thankfully, old town of toledo is actually very pleasant and especially at night can be incredibly charming.

And I believe it goes 'any morning, any evening, any day. Maybe he sun is shining, birds are winging...'
Recognised the title words before I even took in the photo, Will. One of my favourite songs from one of my favourite albums ever. Was only giving it a multiple repeat play in my car a couple of weeks ago. I've memorised nearly every song over the last 40-something years.
Anyway, on to the photo. Great well timed capture of the protruding human element set against the vertical pattern of the windows and shiny metallica. I particularly like the reflection.
Keep on Truckin'

Lots of 'verticals' in this photo, and delightful colours on a sunny Spring day. Those sheds make a great background for the small boats. The scene has a delightful sense of peace and quiet about it.

Congratulations on reaching this milestone on TE. I completely forgot about my 10 years last October!
You've chosen an imposing scene to celebrate the occasion. A magnificent, well-preserved fortress shot from a great viewpoint against a lovely sky. Sharp, detailed, and with natural colour tones. Great note too.

A great b/w creation. The monochrome effect makes the strong contrast more even stark and seems to confuse the viewer about the time of day - we see the figures' very short shadows, yet there is a darkness here as well, as a large cloud moves over the dune, adding an element of strangeness. You did very well to compose - and probably crop? - this, and I like the stances of the nearest figures, and also the presence of the tiny pair in the top left corner. The gentle curve of the horizon is also appealing. My favourite photo today!

I suppose I am not very well informed about your country, so I would not associate this scene with Iran. But if you live in the north of the country, it must be very cold in the winter. This is a beautiful shot, well exposed. I understand what you mean by the difficulty of automatic exposure when there is so much white in the scene. You captured the details in the trees and the house very well. An elegant and delicate composition.
