lighthouse? what lighthouse, I don't see any lighthouse! haha
for obvious reasons this photo in the gallery page caught my attention.
not only for the women, but that red colour screams off the screen, and the vertical compo suits the scene well with the long legs.

haha...great story, and thanks for the added photo of you - well, sort of :)
We often see these street performers, and I always wonder how long it takes for them to smother themselves in gold like this! and how do they not get the car seat covered in it too haha
lovely portrait, there's alot of emotion in her face and eyes.
best of all though is the darkend background, thats so key. Imagine this same shot with a white bg, it just wouldn't have the same effect.
love this work

you have posted many shots from or of these mountains, and this one may be one of my favorites.
the sky is actually trying to take over as the main focal point, its just that beautiful and attractive.
I also like the lines formed by all the ridges of the mountains, topped off by the horizontal layering of clouds.
macjake (63172) 2015-11-28 2:46
you're making it very easy to like this one.
you could have even left out the entire top half of the scene and it still would look attractive.
love seeing the window and shutters in the reflection too. nice work

I know these photos on TE don't gather lots of points, but to us Car Guys, we love them.
keep them coming if you have more.
and as for fuel economy, you wouldn't be purchasing this car for fuel savings :) Its to be seen in.
such a beauty.
they don't make front grills like that anymore!
macjake (63172) 2015-11-28 2:33
Oh I absolutely love these winter scenes with sprinkles of white snow covering the rooftops.
To me, this is just as beautiful as a hot summer day.
such lovely atmsophere and its full of charm.
excellent vertical composition as the city gains height, caping it off with the church.

I wish we could all have stained glass windows in our homes - but they're way too expensive.
Hopefully people do appreciate the amount of work and craftsmanship that go into such glass making.
if you look at it from an abstract point of view, it looks like rays of sunlight eminating from the top left. sweet colours and lighting
macjake (63172) 2015-11-28 2:28
you're surely in a Cold mood aren't you :)
this place looks extremely hostile and frigid!
why would anyone want to go outside for a walk with a camera in hand - I bet thats what people would think when they see you.
But good on you to just get out there and beat the weather. love the atmosphere and the climate, true Finland i guess
macjake (63172) 2015-11-28 2:24
so what is this building used for today? can you go inside and take a look around upstairs?
looks quite large and thick!
even the large timbered house on the left is dwarfed by this huge fortress.
Never seen it before, so i've learnded something new here today. excellent exposure and details.
macjake (63172) 2015-11-28 2:20
you know what I like about this one? its the colour, think about it - how often do we get to see this specific colour? not too often in photos.
the longer I look at it the more I like it, lots to see, and to appreciate with the details and ridges.
organised chaos on the ground :)
macjake (63172) 2015-11-28 2:17
perfect street shot!
love the gritty feel to it, and best of all are all those wires, thats awesome.
The charming Old Quarter huh? Maybe one day I'll have to check it out for myself.
lots to see and keep me interested in this small street scene. well composed
macjake (63172) 2015-11-28 2:14
this looks like the small Romeo & Juliet balcony :)
we are glad you have stuck around for 4 years, hopefully you will continue to stay and share with us.
lovely stone wall on that building, thats the highlight for me. great to have the orange ship as a complimentary subject, and the clouds are A+
whats not to like! Fine exposure
macjake (63172) 2015-11-28 2:11
I have to be honest....i know NOTHING about this island, but because you have posted this, it certainly makes me curious.
looks like something we'd see from Norther Norway in the summertime.
very rugged terrain, yet lush with greenery.
learned something new today from your post.
excellent TE addition
macjake (63172) 2015-11-28 2:08
4 years on TE eh? Lets hope you'll stick around for another 4 at least :) TE members seem to be on the endangered species list lately!
I don't think you could have chosen a more charming and picturesque little scene than this!
love the addition of the black light pole on the right, and the small cemetery too.
same goes for the red roof, so much to like here
macjake (63172) 2015-11-28 2:05
I always enjoy your winter scenes.
here we have another wonderful presentation.
glad to see some colours in the lower fg to break up the whites and blues, thats always nice.
Imagine hiking up here, climbing those mountains!
what a magical peaceful place.
fine details in your photo, everything works well together here
macjake (63172) 2015-11-28 2:03
too bad you traveled here and had such misty cold weather, but i'm sure you're still glad you visited.
its always interesting to see these trees completely bare of leaves, leaving only the branches waving in the air. Kind of creepy at night I think :)
nice shot from close to the water level, different views of the city for sure
macjake (63172) 2015-11-28 2:00
oh, very nice!
how could anyone note enjoy a scene like this.
especially with winter coming on soon too.
the colours are what make it work so well, all the rich blue tones, then mix in some yellows and browns.
I can feel the warmth already :)
macjake (63172) 2015-11-28 1:57
another great looking shot.
it just screams Cuba to me.
that car looks like a long blue shark waiting in the ocean to catch its next pray.
it looks old and all dinged up - which is even better.
interesting note, I never went to Santiago, perhaps I should have.
thanks for this one
