Good morning Beverly,
Beautiful photo taken, and a great moment.
The soon-to-be-mother looks as she has many thoughts, but still enjoy the serenity of this moment, maybe listen to the waves, maybe looking at her self-shadow on the wet sand - just like you managed to show her reflection.
Lovely scene, superbly spotted the moment.
Have a nice sunday,

I have always thought that this museum has a resemblance to a shark and your viewpoint, here, confirms it. It certainly appears to have designs on the red brick building.
Your juxtaposition emphasises the contrasts between the old and modern, both in design and materials. A fine panorama.
I just love how Liverpool has become something of a phoenix, rising from was what becoming decay!
Have a lovely Sunday,

A magnificent view fom a high point over the town and castle, the wide valley and the surrounding mountains. A bit of fog hang over the valley, but still we can see as far as the horizon in fairly good clarity.

A well premeditated photo, taking the diagonal POV over the red-square walls, and including the dome and turrets.
Maybe a 5m to right would make those dome and towers more evident on scene - but nevertheless, an iconic place collected well, with the light conditions prevailed.

A fine time and a fine viewpoint to take this photograph.
Leopold is illuminated in the low sunshine and looks to dominate the whole scene as he rises above the buildings and looks down on the alfresco customers.
Fine contrasts and lovely, sharp details.
Have a lovely Sunday,

Too quiet place for me to reside - but i am sure there are great benefits to live there, and people must enjoy this serenity, Gerrit.
Well cared gardens and the canal between houses, nicely taken the scene with good DOF.
Have a nice sunday,

Le grand-duc is prominently watching the piazza and and the people on the Cafe' near by, Christiane.
Nicely you managed light and sahadows, diff. colors and good contrast, buildings and a bit of nature behind - all included on the scene.

The yellow floats arte in fine contrast to the black big net, and the men working to repair it gave life to the scene, Mesut.
Some fishermen has the time to play Shesh-Besh near the boat - waiting for better weather to sail out again.
Nice taken the scene, green and yellow cranes added graphism to the whole.

Fabulous Templar knight on a horse statue, with its grandeur appearence and the Chateau on the backdrop's.
Templars has long history in Israel, first mentioned in the 12th century crusaders journeys, but most established in the late 19th century when built several settlements around the country.
Superb photojob done, good contrast and shine black painted sculpture.

Red walls to the red square, how simple... Nicely combined the orange/brown building just behind the red wall's, the beautiful white blacony and windows in fine texture.
An iconic symbol of russia, well collected.
have a nice Sunday,

Hello Luciano - If nothing else this photograph is a lesson in observation and how you keep your eyes and mind searching for good subject matter. The shot is more than that though; it is creative and beautifully managed. The reflections in the glasses are really excellent and your framing top class. I like this one a lot both as an image and for the lesson you share!

The thing that really stands ut here is the size of the wall Jason, it looks huge when contrasted with the soldier and tourist; impenetrable and strong, to me a visual commentary on the Russian (Soviet) government. A super shot and despite what you say about the light being flat I think that the colours and details have been well captured.
Enjoy a fine Sunday

Sunlit clouds, rough, rocky terrain and a dark pool of water combine to make an atmospheric mountain scene. The little huts are dwarfed by the scenery Piotr and give a feel for the scale of the landscape.
A shot packed with texture and attractive natural colours.

Hello Constantino - With the sun shining this could be a summer's day, how resplendent the colours look under the bright light. A pretty coastal scene with the houses neatly lining the water's edge and the orchard rising up behind them.

Hello Laurent - I love watching life on Tonle Sap and your shot shows one small aspect of it brilliantly. You have composed this really strongly and from a good lowish vantage point. The taxi seems to glide through the waters quietly with the woman looking directly into your lens. Attractive warm light and a harmonious palette of colours too.
A lovely shot.

Hello Giorgio - I do like this. The repeating patterns formed by the trees and the wonderful variety of harmoniously tinted foliage make this a winner for me. I very much like the way the landscape is stripped of depth and volume and has become two dimensional.

Hello Noel - This sculpture appeals to me and I have been sat looking at it and thinking up various narratives to explain what I see. You have captured some very good variations of texture and colours on the surface of the work which can be clearly seen on the larger version.
I have the impression that you have softened the background in PP. Small tell tale signs like the area immediately beneath the curve of the wolf's head (which is crisp) and the soft fuzzy edges in places around the sculpture spoil the shot a little. I appreciate what you have done but maybe a little too obvious to work for me.
None-the-less an interesting post and a lovely sculpture
PS. I hope that you had a brilliant birthday
