This photo has a very intimate feeling. It seems like I'm sharing the moment and am a part of the celebration. The exposure is wonderful, and I like the warm lighting and dark background. A happy Deewali to you. :-)

A very nice capture of this ancient city, and the photo does seem to tell how ancient the place is, this coud be a scene from any of the past centuries, it seems not much has changed within this vision. Although today this is a modern city, it's old world history comes across really well . A very beautiful historic yet modern shot. A great documentary shot too.

Very beautiful building and I really like the crop you have made which draws the eye to the amazing height of the tower. You captured very splendid detail of this fine tower and made a very eye catching photo. Thanks for sharing.

A very beautiful mirror moment, and more special for me as this is a place I do not have the pleasure of seeing too often. The sense of distance from the world I know and natural beauty is very strong, and I love that. Very nicely managed on the difficult light too, great shot.

I don't know if it's too many horror films or the passing interest in star wars, but there is strong sense of going from the dark side in this, you took this at the optimal time as the pair transition between one part of the frame and the other to make a very clever photo. The slice of greenery at the bottoms very nicely included too. Cool :) dark side......
Cheers from the soggy isle.

This is great, the viewers of this great painting do blend so well into the view, and are at rhea same time distinct from the work of art by having a strong foreground presence. You have filled the frame beautifully here to create a nicely busy scene with excellent human interaction. Cool shot.

This is a vey charming building, and you chose a very nice view to take this. Is wooden design and bedecke with flowers, this is a perfect building to make a very pleasing view of this city. There is a very nice sky behind too.

An irrepressible island castle, it sure looks like a prison, but still retains the charm of its original purpose. Yr view captures it's locate perfectly and gives a sense to why this location would have been chosen for boththe grandeur and the defends. Very nice shot.

I Think this is a very charming location, and mainly because you have given a very distinct personality to the tuktuk. As the man sits there explaining whtev er it is, the little yellow vehicle seems to be in awe of the convserstation, and as it sticks it's nose into the frame like this, it makes an amusing vision of a grity everyday scene. I like this a lot :)

Ciao Frank,una composizione molto originale,di solito su punta l'obiettivo verso il centro della scala per create quell'effetto chiocciola che abbiamo visto spesso,la tua è una scelta diversa e vincente per mostrare qualcosa di differente,ottimo ed interessante lavoro! Buon weekend,Luciano

This is a great scene for many reasons, but for me the most beautiful part is the wave and so so friendly smile of the nun upstairs, its a magical moment to have captured. Such a surreal scene too, unlike anything I could ever hope to e in my daily life. It brings together wonderful elements to make a very fascinating scene. Really nicely done.

I am reminded of the movie ate Perfect Storm as I view this, the boat seems so insignificant in front of this angry sky, and it is perfectly placed in the frame to give equal importance to the power of nature and the insignificant position of the boat. Despite that thou, the boat still pops out, the color being vibrant and very alive in this sea of blue and grey. A very nicely thought out scene that works beautifully.
Have a great weekend

Even though it's a pyramid up there, it's never looked as prominent as in your shot here, it is easy for my eye to seperate the pyramid from the rest of the building and set it in an ancient place, it is glowing so beautifully here, and set against the active angry sky behind, it looks very fine, lie a view fom some epic movie. Nicely done to capture such a unique shot of such a well known building.
Noel_Byrne (22112) 2014-10-24 12:46
Because of the angle you chose, I have an overwhelming desire to slide down this building, wheeeeee......
Of course I know the reality would not be a gentle slide down, but nonetheless :)
Its great to see such an important building being it to such good use and at only a million a go, a bargain too. Well, I will say this when I win the euro millions later tonight.
As ever you have really made the utmost from the light here and have created a magical effect, exactly like Gotham as you say. A beautiful piece of built history, presented perfectly.

This glass like reflection is beautiful, and even more so accompanied by your note to tell the reason for the bRidges design. I love that the massive mountain peeps into the frame like this making it seem at for all it's mass and bulk, it is as interested in seeing the beautiful moment as I am. Really great colors and the reflection is class.

Hi Rosemary,it does look like a rather well recalled pose this man has, as he gazes off into the distance about his vessel, but that doesn't take at all from the charm of the scene. I like ths me of the boat, that really got me. Though I know Pearl bailey the actress, I know it better as the name of the high school in the tv show family guy :)
Very vibrant and lively scene, and the colors are very appealing.
