Having just critiqued my photograph, you will understand why I like this! It is truly an unspoilt natural area and there is no doubt that it immediately captures the mood of the film! The iridescent green hues are amazing!
I like how the f/g trees appear to guide us into the interior of the scene.
Have a great w/e,

Ha! Ha! John, the weather didn't deter three keen photographers!
You were so fortunate that this photographer was wearing red! The colour and the figure command the f/g and direct us right into the shot. At first, I found the second figure a distraction but then, I realised he was leading to the bridge, which becomes a second access to the view of the castle.
I love castles and this has all the drama we could ask for. The cloudy, threatening sky adds to the mood.
Despite the low light, you have achieved excellent clarity in the f/g and m/g, whilst the misty b/g helps create a greater sense of depth.
Have a great w/e,
I am typing this on my new computer! I have got an Apple Mac, like Lens, in an attempt to stop all the problems I seemed to be experiencing with my other computer. So far, so good: fingers crossed!

This looks like a new city, evolving!
There are signs of construction everywhere.
I particularly like the soft warmth of the sky and how it is reflecting on the sides of some skyscrapers.
You managed this light extremely well.
Have a great w/e,

You have seen and cropped this image so expertly, to create a minimalistic shot of white and blue. It has amazing impact, like a row of very sharp, clean teeth, ready to bite all comers!
Have a great w/e,

This looks like the sort of weather we have been enduring, except yours looks more 'romantic'!
The clouds and the sun rays look like direct involvement from Heaven!
You have done a fine job, capturing the scene so well, with such poor light, generally.
The silhouetted f/g gives a great sense of depth to the valley beyond, accentuated by the sun's rays disappearing behind the m/g slope.

this is such a beautiful square. There are so many attractive structures here. Nice perspective looking up.
Very pleasing foreground with the silhouettes of the trees.
Interesting processing too. I prefer always a simple look but here you have achieved a very particular effect may be resembling an old photograph.
Beautiful city, marvelous presentation!

ale tutaj znalazles zageszczenie balkonow na jednym budynkow. Wszystkie maja chyba podobny styl ale kazdy ma inny kolor. Alez to piekne! Bardzo dobrze nasyciles kolory a cienie wprowadzaja poczucie trojwymiaru.
Wspaniala prezentacja z Malty!!

Fantastic composition from Vienna! The carriage makes the highlight of the scene. It looks like you did some partial desaturation, leaving only some elements having their colors. The effect is quite attractive making us to focus on the street life.

what a lovely village scene. It must be such a romantic experience to have a walk along this promenade and sit down for a meal. You were there at a great moment, the sky was may be a bit too bright yet so part of it lost the color but the other part is pleasantly pink grey.
Very atmospheric capture,
mkamionka (37879) 2016-09-30 23:13
your photo certainly has the unique POV :)
The various versions complement each other very well, we can better imagine how this places looks at different weather.
Fantastic composition here with the panoramic view of the mountains in the back. I like the blue patch of the sky reflected in the lake, it makes quite a difference.
Also there seem to be a person in the light blue jacket watching you from below :)

beautiful panoramic view of this attractive old town.
I like the stylish church dominating the scene. There is a visually pleasing labyrinth of streets and houses around it.
You have found a great point of view.
Very well done,
mkamionka (37879) 2016-09-30 23:03
lovely POV to capture this town. May be bit pity that the trees cover the view a bit but it is great for the people living there that they have so many trees around.
You have well used the motif of the road which leads the eye to the centre, and there is even a couple walking the path.
Very well spotted,

beautiful classical view from NYC.
I like it very much.
When I visited NYC the lower Manhattan looked differently yet and I went to the top of Empire State Building but didn't go to this view here.
This is a great POV as it allows to take Empire State Building being half way its height, the perspective is quite attractive.

This is an absolute jewel of a place - the little old barn with the lovely lake beside it, surrounded by fresh green pasture and lovely mountains - and you have captured the beauty and the peace and tranquillity perfectly in this beautiful photograph.
I like how the narrow stony track leads us past the little building and curves around the lake to take us through the gap in the mountains and onwards. A fine composition with lovely soft light, wonderful colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

Oops, I nearly missed this beauty! We've been away for a few days and so I'm just catching up!
Ah, ha, the sculptor is a chap from Brittany called Christophe Milcent - you can see his website here or, if you prefer to read it in English, look here.
This sculpture is certainly impressive and you have chosen the perfect viewpoint to capture the full size of this metallic beast.
A very imposing photograph, very well composed and taken in lovely light with good colours, perfect exposure and stunning details and sharpness.

By Jove, you were indeed lucky with the weather here: I can't actually recall ever having visited Oban when it's not been raining and the last time I was there the rain was literally bouncing off the ground.
This is a delightful view and it's quite refreshing to see a photograph of Oban which doesn't include McCaig's Folly on the hillside above the harbour - you know, the circular thing that looks like a tiny Colosseum. I suspect it might be hiding in the trees off to the left.
I presume that this was taken of an evening as the light looks nice and warm and I see shadows of the masts of other boats or buildings on the side of this one, but the little boat stands out brightly and colourfully against the background of dark water and the seafront buildings and trees.
A very nicely composed photograph with glorious light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

A gorgeous view with the trees, the distant land and some of the boats here lit in beautiful warm light from the setting sun while the remainder of the scene lies in relative shade in preparation for approaching nightfall.
Glorious light and lovely warm colours, perfect exposure, a fine composition and exquisite details and sharpness.

Well, your search for a better viewpoint certainly succeeded and you found your goal - this is a beautiful shot with fine symmetrical composition and, yes, you also have a fine view of the weir through the middle two arches of this lovely bridge.
Gorgeous soft light, lovely true colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness - at least when viewed at its "proper" size.

Hello Jean Claude,
I love steam locomotives! And I also found this beautiful photograph in your gallery! But I don't think that this is the same locomotive, is it?
Anyway, this is a delightful photograph, very well taken with good timing so that the locomotive is perfectly placed in the frame and the rails lead to it right from the bottom right corner of the picture. The distant view is beautiful and I like the presence of steam coming out of the cylinders, proving that this engine is actually moving at the time.
Lovely light and colours, perfect exposure and excellent details and sharpness.
