fantastic place. I had the pleasure to visit the mosque on the top of the citadel but not this place here. I am so jealous you have plenty of time in this amazing city. There is so much to see there. I spent only two days there which were organized and so without any freedom at all.
This is a nice less popular spot I believe, the minarets look huge.

lovely composition. The statue seems quite funny itself and you photographed it well with the damaged house walls and street signs. The cat is of course an extra bonus a cherry on the cake.
Very well spotted and photographed.
I have seen on FB our trip to Naples was photographically very successful as well.
Looking forward to see more,

I just realized you have some reportage from Syria so I went to have a look at your gallery from that country.
Beautiful street scene with children.
It feels so peaceful and charming -I suppose just the opposite to what is still going on in Syria...
I guess this can teach us how fast our lives may change and how much.
Very well done,

by including this orange ferry you managed to make the photo so original from a typical view of statue of liberty.
What strikes me here are the little people assembled there -they really help us to imagine the vast scale of the statue.
This is a spectacular scene, I feel like I have to get back there again to take better photos, digital this time. Your photo works as an encouragement.

This is quite a spectacular landscape and the location of the monastery is stunning. Here we can admire the bigger picture, bigger context of the monastery. Great that you managed to include here as well the curvy roads which add to the beauty of the landscape.

ale robisz niesamowita reklame Kazachstanowi. Taka rozmaitosc krajobrazow jak na dzikim zachodzie!
Ogromnie podoba mi sie ten pomaranczowy kolor w kombinacji z niebieskim niebem.
Pewnie tylko rozlinnosc nieco inna niz w Namibii.
Zastanawiam sie gdzie by bylo bezpieczniej jechac z dzieckiem do Namibii czy do Kazachstanu?
Wspaniala diagonalna linia poprzez kady.

lovely composition. The church appears as quite an old structure and it is wonderfully located near the yellow field.
Great POV selected, the yellow color adds so much beauty here.
Nice framing with the branch on the very top.

beautiful blue hour picture. My favourite part are the star shaped lights almost equally distributed throughout the picture.
Fantastic POV which allowed you to take in also the cliff and marina, and the lovely silhouette of the palm tree.
Very attractive and romantic.
It seems you have kept it in your drawer for a while although I would say this may be one of the most attractive among your Menorca pictures?

this is a great spot indeed however it seems you had a bit foggy day with the light rather dispersed.
Also including the river works usually quite well from a similar angle. I think I have a picture from a similar spot on TE taken with the river at the blue hour.
Having a biker and thinker on the bench adds some relaxing aspect but there is too much concrete for my taste in the foreground.
Nice reportage though,

this is a lovely village and an attractive castle. With its white color it stands out of the picture very well. Nice also to see it in a context of the little town. Great weather, great light conditions and the sky very photogenic too.
I really envy you that you have so many different countries in a driving distance.
I am trapped on an island and it is quite elongated as well. So getting to a different country is always a challenge.
I have never been to Luxembourg but I have seen some photos by claudeD :)

Ciao caro Luciano,
An interesting note and wo wonderful photographs to accompany it. But this also appears to me to have a slightly darker side - the slightly spooky appearance of the figure of Pulcinella, the inscrutable gaze of the cat and the signs, one of which includes the word "purgatorio". So here I appreciate a rather dark side to the story!
But two beautiful photographs, very well seen and superbly well taken and how fortunate you were too for this cat to pose for you. The light and colours are perfect, your composition well made and the details and sharpness are exquisite.

"Little boxes, little boxes,
There's a green one and a yellow one,
And they're all made out of ticky-tacky,
And they all look just the same."
But they make a wonderful photograph, where the emphasis is on repeated patterns, as well, perhaps, as making a comment on modern urban dwelling.

Thanks for the EXIF data: I wonder if TE will ever get round to sorting the problem out! This is a well-judged and well composed shot, with the imposing castle sitting squarely on the thirds position, and a heartening naturalness to the colours.

Yes, I remember visiting these "caves" too: from memory, they are set into the side of cliff and we went in at the top, and followed staircases down through the barrels to the tasting room beneath. Lovely wine, great place, pleasing photograph.
