Hello dear Serghei,
Your photo of the lake in Perm represents a first class nature photo, with very little development (houses,stores, etc.) nearby. It's bucolic scene, very attractive and inviting.
Have a good weekend, what is left of it.

How nice to have you as a neighbor late on Friday evening. This is a spectacular photo of the Southern Alps. Patagonia remains very high on my list of places to see. The jagged peaks rising higher than anywhere else on earth, except the Himalayas must still have numerous peaks that have never been conquered. The clouds hanging around the peak adds fantastic atmosphere to the photo.

A superb shot just past blue hour, and I see that it took a shutter speed of 1/15 second and a very large aperture of f/4.5. The moon is the star, but the random arrangement of lit windows complements the moon.
Warm regards, and have a good weekend.

Amazing capture of this famous Kapoor Artwork in Chicago.
Very nice reflections and beautiful cloudy sku as perfect background.
Also in my gallery I'd posted some captures of it.
TFS and best regards

No photograph can inspired me more to go to the Farmer's Market in historic Virginia (where I live) to purchase some pears. Indeed, it is a collection of three photos, beautifully composed and presented.

Excellent photo, and even better commentary on the state of affairs. I have been working on my new book, "No Ordinary Genius," focusing on five transformative geniuses Leonardo, Shakespeare, Newton, Beethoven and Einstein. None of the 26 Nobel Laureates I've met qualify (they are all "ordinary geniuses," except for two perhaps, Dirac and Feynman). Genius has its limitations, stupidity and ignorance has no limitations whatsoever. Do you remember the two colossal Buddha statues in Bamyan, Afghanistan?

Hello dear Paul
This one is really a topclass capture.
Very goo layout and nice natural framing with this huge branch of the palm tree at the upper part. Interesting notes.
TFS and best regards

This is a very beautiful architectural portrait of the city hall in Kortrijk. It is so well preserved despite its age, and continued evolution through two centuries. Your photo demonstrates the best of two point perspective. The absence of crowds and cars gives it a early 20th century atmosphere,

Hello Dear Gigi,
Such color and depth of field in this photo. The great German physicist Heisenberg once said, "Never underestimate how much pleasure it gives a man to see what he already knows. I know this lovely boulevard in Nice.
Warm regards to your family,
