Did this not remind you a little of Kings Canyon? What an impressive view, a stunning depth of field and wonderful chromatic rendering. The contrast of red rock and greenery is spectacular and you chose well with the landscape format and wide-angle. Excellent work, and yes, sometimes guided tours are good. They certainly have their place.

Non lo so se o la tua modella o i fiori sono i piu belli. Ma tutte le due insieme ha creato un capolavoro. Bellissima la struttura e senso di movimento. La resa cromatica e' stupenda, come questa meraviglia di Castelluccio.

Ciao dear Lars
Just like a French Impressionist's painting, this reflections is a feast for the eyes. Wonderful golden light, perfectly rendered reflections and a lovely hint of red tones to provide that great contrast. Excellent work, thanks for sharing.

Pozdrav dear Paja
Minus 15 degrees! Oh dear that is cold. I do not think I have ever witnessed cold like that. Your photo is excellent reportage, capturing the snow and the mist so well. The textures are delightful. excellent work, thanks for sharing, have a beautiful evening.

You know, if I hadn't seen that this was taken in China, I'd have believed you were in Ireland or Scotland. The intense green, the hand-hewn stone walls and the undulating hills immediately made me think you'd visited the Highlands. What a magnificent scene. The winding road seems to mirror the winding stream. The movement in the FG grass gives us a sense of a gentle breeze and the lack of humans gives a very real sense of isolation and tranquillity, so often a theme in your landscape photos. And such a juxtaposition with your bustling, hectic people photos. Excellent work as usual, thanks for your note, always informative and entertaining.

I hope you and your wife had a relaxing vacation. I was curious as to what this was when I saw the thumbnail. It is a delightful window and balcony scene, so characteristic of your country and also those of Italy and Greece. beautiful vivid colours and textures. You have done well to notice this beautiful scene and have photographed it admirably.

Gee you get around: Iceland one day, Jersey the next. And now Norway. I look forward to seeing your photos from there. Will you see the Northern Lights or is it not the season for it? Anyway, this little cutie is lovely. You've made a very nice close up and she seems to be modelling for you, giving you her best selfie duck-face. Or should that be cow-face? Anyway, nice colours and textures. A delightful shot.
Thanks for sharing, have a lovely evening

Ciao dear Lucas
What an unusual architecture. I love the blue and white ceramics, so reminiscent of those we see in Portugal. The background Blue Hour adds to the colour theme and the image is sharp and without noise. Excellent work.

La prima volta che ho visto questa panorama era nella foto di Maurizio. Ogni volta che vederla, i miei pensieri sono gli stessi: che meraviglia. Hai ottenuto un grande bel POV, con ottima nitidezza e profondita' di campo. I colori acquamarini del mediterraneo sono la ciliegina sulla torta. Che paradise, che foto. Complimenti.

When I initially saw this in thumbnail, I thought it was a photo of a painting. But upon enlarging it, it became evident what a work of art this is. Your post-processing here is exquisite. I've never understood layers, but the skill and subtlety of the light here really is impressive. The colours and definition are jaw-dropping. The image is of superb quality. There is only one Obsessive Compulsive gripe I have, and that is I would have cloned out the globs of chewing gum in the foreground. But that is nit-picking, I blame the hormones. This is a thoroughly magnificent photo, and one of the best portraits I've seen on TE in a long time. Congratulations.

Ciao dear Ourania
What a sweet moment you have captured. Their red costumes certainly stand out and I love the details in the embroidery you have captured. The little man on the left is blurred. Purists would critique this, but I love it as it gives a reality to the photo and a sense of movement: since when do 9 year olds stand still? This is an international thing and I love seeing it. You have captured their vibrance and zest for life perfectly. I love it and it made me smile.

And here was me thinking the Golden Gate was actually golden. It should be the Red Gate. This close up is very artistic. I love the textures of the vertical cables, amplified nicely by your choice of vertical frame. A crisp, clean image with wonderful geometry and blocks of colour. A stunning visual treat, thanks for sharing.

A lovely picture of modern life. This black and white version is beautiful, but why do you prefer it above color? I suppose B&W express something better than color and I like to know what it is.
The scene is amusing with the mobile phone-world turned around.

Bad weather at Midsommar, Sweden eliminated in the European football championship, no more Zlatan. Not the ideal start of the summer. And the TE-performance is again without any improvement. But also Sweden back in the UN Security councel and no Svexit, said Kristersson.
And two points for this excellent daily life picture.

Hai ragione, ci sono bellissime persone. Potrei guardare ogni ritratto due or tre volte e ogni volta troverei una cosa nuova. Mi piace specialmente il uomo al centro con il suo sguardo intense. Complimenti, la varieta' e la qualita' delle foto e' impressionante.
Un abbraccio e bella iurnata
