What a scene!
It is almost a white out, yet the detailed edges give all the information necessary. The blues and greys paint a cold as well as beautiful scene.
I love how the road is so well positioned as a guide.
It was misty when we were there but nothing like this!
Have a great day,

The converging lines of the street make an irresistible guide as well as creating a fine sense of perspective.
In addition, the light and shade contrasts are delightful, whilst the the colours are well saturated.
Have a good day,

amazing winter! Such an abundant snowfall! I would like to see one like that in England but may be just for the weekend -otherwise the streets would be completely paralyzed. People are not used to snow in England.
Your picture well captured the abundance of snow and the atmosphere of winter.
Very well done!!

indeed the left arm looks a bit spooky.
I suppose this is a wax figure not a real girl paid to sit there in the opening hours of the museum? :)
Very realistic and a bit strange too.
Thanks for sharing the works of this extraordinary artist,

pomimo ze niewiele pozostalo to jednak ruiny wydaja sie bardzo interesujace, w szczegolnosci uwage moja zwrocily te poziome bialo czerwone pasy, ciekawe czy to oryginalna klorystyka.
Piekny dzien, bardzo ladny punkt widzenia z nagim drzewem dodajacym uroku.
Znakomita prezentacja, tak jak lubie!

The weather didn't spoil you over there but it also didn't stop you from taking fantastic photos. Here a great use of the Celtic cross shown with stunning surrounding, so green and unspoiled. Great well saturated and natural colors.
Usual excellent quality!

very colorful tram almost as colorful as Swiss bank notes!
I can see your silhouette in the reflection as well.
Quite an original composition with pleasant geometry.
I like the repeated motif of the window.
Very well done!!

yes I think I have heard about this town for the first time on TE as well.This is such a photogenic place, obviously the main postcard type of view is with the lake but this picture shows that there is even more to see there. What a lovely square here with interesting architecture around, so stylish and elegant and so colorful!
Very attractive reportage!
mkamionka (39551) 2017-01-22 13:21
indeed although the bird is probably quite common in the whole Europe I have noticed it probably for the first time in my life in the garden of the house I live in Britain. May be it is more wide spread here?
Lovely bird photo,

znakomita seria zimowych zdjec z Twojej okolicy. Tutaj oprocz zimowej dekoracji w postaci zamarznietej rzeki, masz atrakcyjnie kontrasty i cienie ktore wprowadzaja poczucie glebi, jak rowniez doskonale cieple swiatlo w promieniach ktorego Ostrow Tumski wyglada olsniewajaco.
Niebo rowniez dodaje cieplego efektu i nieco ciemniejszego tla dla swietnie oswietlonych obiektow.
Znakomita jakosc, gratulacje!!

indeed quite different styles of these balconies, different colors and shapes, very well spotted the contrast creates a lovely final result.
Nice continuation of the reportage showing so may different aspects of this beautiful island.

although I have been next to the building I didn't recognize it at the first sight here. Nice close up focused on the tower with plenty of attractive decorations becoming clearly visible. Pleasant sky as a background. The golden statue on the very top adds a lovely touch, a point to focus on.
Very well done!!

another very successful trip in Europe :)
Fantastic point of view which allowed you to take in a panoramic view of the palace, cathedral and their surroundings.
Interesting light. Challenging condition but pleasant final effect.
Excellent work, it reminds me my trip to Madrid 1.5 year ago...

I love the wet pavement which provides a chance for reflections although usually I am staying at home at such weather so I have no chance to take a photo like this...
The tram is a lovely subject. In my home town there is one equally charming tram converted to a little cafe, I must take a photo of it next time I am there.
I enjoy your perfectly balanced exposition in spite of difficult conditions. Everything seems to be very well lit.
Beautiful street scene!
mkamionka (39551) 2017-01-21 14:21
this is so pretty! The fog is quite dense and I admire your exposition here -we can well see the silhouettes of the trees and the sheep of course. The seem to be standing out of the background. They are staring at you :)
Lovely scene, very well done!!!

Good old FP4! Did you do your own dev and printing in those days? This is a fine observational photograph, and although we can't see his face, we can imagine the interrogatory and perplexed look clearly. As I'm sure I've said before, these old images, good as they are intrinsically, gain added importance as historical documents. Looking forward to more!
BTW, as ever, your "workshop" is easily the equal of your main post: why not give all your images the same oxygen of publicity??

A shot like this creates a sense of motherly concern as well as enjoying a beautifully taken shot!
These two appear to be snuggling together for warmth, even though their coats seem perfectly adapted for the weather!
I love the composition, the framing and all the details that create the mood.
Those red faces really stand out in a most appealing way, against the snow.
Have a lovely w/e,
Royaldevon (41909) 2017-01-21 6:19
Your w/s, particularly the one with the child and the sledge, could have been main posts.
Now this is real snow!
We have only had slight dustings!
This is the sort of snow that upsets transport and creates beautiful, white scenes!
It's a good viewpoint, using the bench for the f/g and the rails as an effective guide.
I like the contrasts of light and shade.
Have a good w/e,
Royaldevon (41909) 2017-01-21 6:13
This could easily have been from Greece (apart from the present snow).
You show us how little has changed, including clothing, over the years.
I like how the old lady seems to be welcoming us into the scene.
Excellent, sharp presentation, including mood lighting, which is touching the front of the building as well as the side of the lady.
Have a good w/e,
Yes, the photograph was from our get-together in February. I have added it to the theme. It was close to here that you were photographed with the horse and the ice-cream van!
Royaldevon (41909) 2017-01-21 5:28
You have done well to get a photograph at all!
No need to apologise for using a smart phone!
I love to see the interior of this temple.
The details of carvings, lighting and floor materials are informative.
Of course, the converging lines create a great sense of perspective.
Have a good w/e,
