when I was there the museum was closed and not well completed. Nice to see the final result. I really like the mirror glass windows of it. I think it is a good place to take reflection photos.
The most I like in this memorial are the many green trees. how is this place in winter?

I like your photo. I have one quit similar but in Black & white. Take a look here http://www.trekearth.com//photo1397657.htm
When I visit the memorial, was ranning a lot and the place pass me a very sad feeling. Know that so many good people die by crazy people is really sad.
Here everything is fine here. Pedro is growing so fast that soon here will carry me :)
Hope all is well with you.
Have a nice day.

Fantasic seascape view from the height of a balcony, looking at the many boats anchored on the bay, Silvio.
The high promenade on the old walls, with a strait line of the stone-railing leading the viewer towards the far side town-peninsula. Most impressive place, well collected sight.

Good evening agnes,
Fine beach scenery from a high perspective, and a stunning blue/turquoise transparent water.
People kept fairly measured interval between themselves, while enjoy the summer sun. Small village houses in contrast to the barren hills beyond.
Zig-Zag trail is prominently rise upwards on right.
All elements culminate to a wonderful photo.

Good evening Swapaqn,
A pic. taken with great taste and charm, colors in fine light, and most attractive are those smiling dancing-ladies.
Composition done well with delicate contrast to the light-brown dune-sand.

Good evening Aleksandar,
A view towards the west, on the Jordan-valley and Israel across.
I reckon there are at least 5 known places with the name of Ein-Musa (pronounced other than "Ain-Musa"), all in the near Mediterranean countries - and the most beautiful one is in the south-west Sinai-desert. Another place with the same name, is alongside the road down from Jerusalem to Jericho - a bit askewed angle across this valley on photo.
A fine perspective, green veg.'s contrast onto the barren dry land.
My best regards,

It must be a pleasure to take a small-boat and cruise the many canals, while enjoying the exquisite architecture's sights around Ghent.
A well chosen diagonal perspective, John, with vivid colors under favorable summer daylight.
Charming and yet impressive, fine photojob as always.

Three themes combined: the beautiful pillars and archs, the special light and shadows, and the lone prayer, caught while taken the photo.
Fine photojob, POV chosen superbly and used all of pic. space.
My best regards,

Without barb-wires the place would had been a perfect view for tourists, by it was days of the "Intifada" - the up-rising of the late 1987 days, and those plates put to protect stones and rocks thrown from the other side.
I still remember the place without those ugly elements.
It is a great looking point up this balcony, I had been there once, long ago - but do not have picture from there.
My best regards,

Silhouettes of the boy and man with a fishing rode ready to be stretched to sea, and the golden glow as a bcakdrop, beautifully collected, Burak.
Perfect timing when the sun almost "dip" to sea, and fine clarity of the many masts.
Plaesent to look at, good evening,

Fine applied photojob, combined a fascinating view of the most known bridge in Porto.
Perfect lighty settings, no excessive bulbs-glare over all part of the image.
*** As for the foreground in my latest photo, i always show things and places as they are - and not all elements "must" be shown as perferct. We are at the end of the summer, and most places are dry, not green like in winter. Thanks.

When I look at Pompey pictures in general, I can only imagin life that went on for many years intill the eruption, Rui, Must had been a vibrant place, where as we know, they were constantly celebrating life...
Fine shot with vivid colors that gave some "life" to the dormant place.

Roof-top's scenery of a beautiful town, on a bright daylight on summer.
There is a slight lense-distortion I detected, maybe you had used a wide-angle lense - but the overwhal is an exquisite photo with many urban-elements of interest to look at.

a fascinating river-scape this. I love the elegant rocky banks and also the mix of strata colours that stand out so unusually against the turquoise waters. A perfect execution and quality presentation. Looks wonderful!
Regards - B.

this place looks cold but so exhilarating and beautiful. The dull grey snowy skies add to the atmosphere and just typifies what I imagine this part of the world to look like. Love it!

Glad you like my recent posts, you asked about the post processing - it is a bit of an ongoing experiment using some HDR techniques. It has something of a "Marmite" appeal about it with some loving the results yet others saying that it looks unreal. I especially like the effect on the "Tall Ships" as it seems to capture some of the timeless old world appeal of these craft. I get the impression that activity here on TE is on the decline. I still cannot access the forums to get an idea of the mood and gauge opinion unfortunately. Thanks again for your interest Ann. B X
