long time no talk!
a very cute shot. we don't see these too often on TE.
i think this is the type of shot that we can all relate to on some level. we put our selves in the place of the children, remembering if and when we did something similar.

at first glance I thought somebody had stolen MY photo and posted it! lol
I have a similar shot from an air shot taken a couple years ago.
beauty work my friend. love seeing the tandem planes in action. its been a dream of mine to be a pilot. I always say, if I were to re-live my life, i'd go into the army as a pilot, learn how to become a jet fighter pilot.
my personal favorite plane has to be the P-51 Mustang, its a classic i know, and many people like it, but its just so hard to resist - kind of like a lady in red :)
interesting how people photograph the planes in flight...i've heard varying degrees of rights and wrongs in what to do. For example, some people say don't take the shot at a shutter speed that is TOOOO fast, that way the propellers look like they do in your photo, meaning they prefer the blurred propeller look. Other say the opposite.
so its just a matter of choice and personal preference i guess.
the planes themselves are super clear and sharp.
I wish we could have met HERE for the TE meeting! haha

what the heck is this?
so the building in the middle is the Opera House?
what ever it is, its certainly making a statement isn't it.
you could see that building from a million miles away.
i wonder how the local people feel about it.
the street sides are very colorful as well.
catches our attention in your gallery.
macjake (67748) 2016-07-24 13:48
yeah, pretty funky.
as i mentioned to you on Insta Gram, i need to try this for myself one of these days.
the final results you get are awesome.
so you're saying if your friend didn't walk towards you the sand in the lower fg wouldn't be red either? heck, i think it turned out better this way.
and i love that blue grey sky color, its what i'd like to have on the walls of my appartment. sweet shot, its OUT OF THIS WORLD! haha...couldn't help myself

this is certainly a place i'd want to visit if in Boston.
where do the Red Sox play? I dont' see the baseball stadium haha.
its fun to scan the image and take a good look around each area to investigate.
through the glass, its very sharp, clear, you wouldn't even know it.
no, i didn't get any certificate for climbing up the tower in Edinburgh lol

i knew i liked this one immediately when i looked at it in your gallery.
this kind of composition works so well, its like a jig saw puzzle or something. and the black lines against the yellow works well too. throw in some warped glass reflections and it all comes together. nice work
macjake (67748) 2016-07-24 13:16
this is one of those subjects where I can never get tired of looking at it, bring it on!
maybe its because of the small narrow format, but i like how it looks like a small scale model of the real thing haha
good idea to leave out the sky in the harsh lighting.

I don't think i've seen this exact view before of this bridge.
love the strong blue which dominates the frame, and the shadows are a nice added element too. sweet to see the bridge in the far bg, the depth is excellent.
macjake (67748) 2016-07-24 13:13
well this is a little bit different. Usually we dont' see the UPward shots of flower pots.
here we can also get a good sense of the condition the building is in. fun shot in the harsh lighting, turned out well.
macjake (67748) 2016-07-24 13:11
its all about the atmosphere right? this is excellent, i love it when clouds give this appearance.
the tall masts work well too, thats another key point i think. and the hdr look brings out the details. sweet shot
