this is a beautiful play on light and color, I constantly admire your ability to spot scenes in daily life that are so beautiful, like classical paintings. I recently visited the Dublin fishing totem of howth with your gallery in mind, and tried to find such great photos. I didn't though, I don't think my eye is well trained enough :)
thanks as always, have a great weekend

Excellent capture of this wonderful moment. The silhouetted trees and the golden hues makes for a perfect combination. Very good control of the light and a fine composition. Love it:) Thanks for sharing.
Have a nice WE.

how can we not love wide angle lenses?:)
Excellent perspective,really nice distortion created by the lens and for me also a crucial part of the image,namely the presence of the photographers on the stairs.
Beautiful architecture and really superb presentation of it!
Enjoy your weekend amigo

finally weekend and finally I can enjoy your vision of Chicago and let my comment on this one.
What can I say-I just love it!and this is exactly what we love wide-angle lenses for,right?(btw.I´ve just bought Tokina 12-28mm and it´s also great lens-although not so wide as your Sigma:)
PS.nice to see Chicago with blue sky:)something I won´t find in my gallery from Windy City,as it was rainy the whole week I was there:)

ach te wraki...chyba dla fotografow wiekszy obiekt westchnien niz piekne plaze:)
Do tego musze ci pogratulowac decyzji o B&W-dla mnie ta wersja ma to "cos",co przykuwa uwage i tworzy wyjatkowy "klimat" tej sceny.

excellent capture my friend!
I like the way you framed the scene-the aircraft and the buildings below to complete the scene.
And besides I really like Aegean Airlines-superb airlines.I´ve made probably their shortest flight in their network(Athens-Santorini in 22minutes:)but I was 100% satisfied.
Have a nice weekend

This beautiful pine tree and the warm light of the end of the day are the key elements in your shot. The contrast with dark and cold tones in the background strengthens the beauty of the scene since the eye is more focused on the tree. Thanks for your instructive note and for the fulfillment of location in the photo settings (always appreciable).
Thanks a lot,

Excellent "stolen" instant, the two people don't even care you're taking a photo of them ! The high technical quality makes it more impactful. Light is excellently managed and cleverly coupled with a B&W conversion. Good job !

the couple is a great addition to this photo has it gives the viewers an idea of the sheer size of those trees. The mist also adds a bit of mystery to your composition.
Have a nice day
speedymanu (3553) 2014-10-24 14:07
an impressive perspective that you've captured with ease and delicacy. The way the light plays among the interwined branches is superb. I also like the way you've framed this scene, leaving a lot of space for the vegetal part of the scenery.
Have a nice day

A very nice capture of this ancient city, and the photo does seem to tell how ancient the place is, this coud be a scene from any of the past centuries, it seems not much has changed within this vision. Although today this is a modern city, it's old world history comes across really well . A very beautiful historic yet modern shot. A great documentary shot too.
Noel_Byrne (22128) 2014-10-24 14:03
Very beautiful building and I really like the crop you have made which draws the eye to the amazing height of the tower. You captured very splendid detail of this fine tower and made a very eye catching photo. Thanks for sharing.

A very beautiful mirror moment, and more special for me as this is a place I do not have the pleasure of seeing too often. The sense of distance from the world I know and natural beauty is very strong, and I love that. Very nicely managed on the difficult light too, great shot.
Noel_Byrne (22128) 2014-10-24 13:58
I don't know if it's too many horror films or the passing interest in star wars, but there is strong sense of going from the dark side in this, you took this at the optimal time as the pair transition between one part of the frame and the other to make a very clever photo. The slice of greenery at the bottoms very nicely included too. Cool :) dark side......
Cheers from the soggy isle.
Noel_Byrne (22128) 2014-10-24 13:56
This is great, the viewers of this great painting do blend so well into the view, and are at rhea same time distinct from the work of art by having a strong foreground presence. You have filled the frame beautifully here to create a nicely busy scene with excellent human interaction. Cool shot.
tatadalou (5897) 2014-10-24 13:55
Great pic ! You should not be sorry, the quality is excellent, with an amazing light management. We can "read" the concentration on these women's face.
Thanks for sharing,
Noel_Byrne (22128) 2014-10-24 13:54
This is a vey charming building, and you chose a very nice view to take this. Is wooden design and bedecke with flowers, this is a perfect building to make a very pleasing view of this city. There is a very nice sky behind too.
Noel_Byrne (22128) 2014-10-24 13:51
An irrepressible island castle, it sure looks like a prison, but still retains the charm of its original purpose. Yr view captures it's locate perfectly and gives a sense to why this location would have been chosen for boththe grandeur and the defends. Very nice shot.
speedymanu (3553) 2014-10-24 13:51
a very refreshing composition. The yellow dress, the deep blue sea and that white boat on the horizon along with those simple geometric shapes reminds me of a child's painting. DExcellent
Have a nice day
