This is a beautiful combination of architecture and daily life. The sharpness and colors are wonderful. The details on the towers are really great; I don't think I've seen them from this close before. Since we don't have any bridges like this here in NYC, it's very interesting to actually think more about this kind of construction, where you essentially have small buildings sitting atop a busy bridge. This is a really great view. :-)

Hello Mr. Creepy, ;-)
I've heard about the high temps in Washington state, so I guess BC is having the same weather since it's just to the north. This fountain does look very refreshing. I like that there is one boy by himself on the left side. The splashes made by the children's feet are also a fun detail. Stay cool. :-)

I like what you created with the curved platform. I'm always looking for these kinds of shots when I'm in the subway, but usually the lighting is terrible, or there are too many people in the frame. I'm surprised that a station in Japan would seem so empty. I remember visiting Kyoto in the past, and it being a beautiful city. I hope all is well with you and your family. :-)

I like this interesting photo, together with the informative note. The tight cropping allows us to really see the textures and colors of the rocks. I also like that you included a bit of the blue water in the upper left part of the frame. Mother Nature definitely creates some wonderful and quirky things for us to enjoy.

This is an interesting title for an interesting photo. Not only have I recently learned about these hot springs, but now I see that people actually cook in them. I guess it's the easiest way to boil some eggs. :-) The woman doesn't seem bothered by all the steam. I like the different foods on display for us to see. Thanks for the WS photos, too.

Dobar dan maestro
Ovo lepo seosko dvorište sređeno u etno stilu je veoma lep motiv.
Koliko je samo lepih detalja od arhitekture do starih eksponata.
Predivne boje odlična oštrina i perfektan sastav.
Ja sam opčinjen fotografijom.

I've been enjoying your NYC photos, but I picked a Canadian one to critique. :-) I really like the blue light, and the patterns on the ground. With the longer exposure we get some ghostly people walking by, which is always nice. :-) Colorful night photos are fun to take, and to look at.

The Blue Lagoon is such a magical place. So far I have only seen it through TE photos, and it's nice to see it again. The color of the water is so unique, and it looks great against the stark white and gray landscape that surrounds it. I've seen lot of photos with people enjoying a dip in the water, but this view with no people has a special feeling to it. It seems like you've found a hidden planet where nobody lives. Really we know that there are lots of people close by. :-)

I was lucky enough during my two trips to Japan to actually stay with four different families in their homes. One house looked very much like the one in your photo. I ate at the same kind of table, and slept on a futon over a tatami mat. They even had a similar garden. It's great to see this traditional interior once again, with the added bonus of the colorful fabrics hanging in the middle. I do miss Japan...

I like the mirrored stairs, but what I like even more is that we only see the view above the stairs through the reflection in the water below. There is a nice balance have two sets of stairs on either side, each one forming an incomplete triangle together with its reflection.

A llama's cute face definitely puts a smile on mine. :-) This fellow seems interested in posing, but how can he see with so much fur over his eyes?! :-) This is a great llama portrait, with perfect sharpness, and I like the softly-blurred activity of the children in the background.

The architecture here is lovely, and I like the curve of the facade. I especially like the stones that are in the foreground. They are close enough to examine the color and texture. The crop you were forced to choose really does work well, too. It seems that there's a broken window in the center, but that just adds more character to this building. :-)

It definitely is a much smaller world these days, with cultures mixing and creating nice surprises like this one. That couple is standing in just the right spot for a nice composition. :-) Here in NYC it's no surprise to find Chinese owners of a Mexican taco restaurant, or Mexican owners of an Italian pizzeria. I wonder if the owners of this restaurant are actually Asian. I like the strong colors, and the pictures of all the dishes.

What a beautiful explosion of color. The exposure of these wonderful windows is perfect. I know it can be hard to photograph windows in such a dark interior. I like your POV looking up, and the small bit of golden light that is illuminating some of the details. Very nice! :-)

This is definitely a photograph, poetry, and an impressionist painting all combined together. It's beautiful! The placement of the two people in the frame, the way the girl's dress is flying up at the hem, the rolling pattern in the field - it is all magical. I think you did a great job capturing the feeling of this place.

It looks like this cathedral could be easily tipped over. ;-) I like the colors and textures of all the old stones - and they really ARE old. We don't have stuff that old here in North America...too bad. Nice moody sky, too.
worldcitizen (7435) 2015-06-30 11:46
Cool windows. :-) I like when architecture includes something a bit different and unexpected. Your vertical presentation and the blue color are very nice. I think designers should have more fun with windows when creating a new building. :-)

This photo, and Allan, have a lot of character. If the location didn't specify that it was taken in Denmark, I'd think it was captured along Route 66 here in the USA. There is a lot of US car memorabilia here! The somewhat dainty cup and bowl in front of Allan are nice touches, and I like the orange color of the wall. It's something different and interesting.

It's nice that you're a guest in one of the former republics of the old Yugoslavia, whose former republic was and my Serbia.
If you go southeast to arrive in mojudržavu.
It's very nice place.
Nice picture showing Bled lake.
Excellent photo job.
