A very pleasant cityscape, further enlivened by the presence of the three girls! I like the difference between the warm tones of the sunlit stone and the blues of the shaded areas. You've got your thirds ruler out again!

I wonder what's about to be revealed when I see the thumbnail! A vast landscape & gorgeous colour to pop your eyes with immediate impact, a breathtaking harshness and scorched earth beauty so typical of Aussie image. So amazingly bright - that red soil must be rich in something which makes you wonder how those pretty bushes survive growing out of the sand. A smartly composed when the fg drawing you right in to the image and the road disappearing into the vanishing point with wonderful glimpse of the messa on the horizon. This is indeed a long drive, and Nature just shows a person how fragile the beauty is....
Lovely shot. Congrats
PS; Appreciate you positive words on my last upload

Fine effort as usual, a wonderful montage of this selection of different aspects about space exploration and I feel each is a winner in it's own right. None of the images are out of place that you must have been overwhelmed when you look at all the shots and this composite would be the best solution to sum up the visit. This has worked well indeed, Congrats. tfs

Another beautiful landscape full of warm colours and vibrancy with excellent foreground leading us to the prominent on the hilltop. Visually an attractive sight with the church holds the focus effectively. Great composition, well done Congrats.

Good old Silver FX! You've done an excellent conversion job on this cellphone image: classy. It's rendered the sky really well. And sharp as you like. Good stuff.
P.S. Thanks for "liking" my TE theme I posted to Facebook.

This scene has huge potential, but I'm afraid it's marred by technical imperfections. It lacks both contrast and Mediterranean colour (and I usually complain that images on TE are much too saturated!) I've done a WS to show you what I mean. Hope you don't mind too much!

We've both posted dramatic skies! I love the colours here, and that raincloud is impressive. But there's blue sky beyond, so I hope the downpour wasn't too long. Actually I don't mind a bit of rain when I'm sailing: it's fresh water for a change!

Still popular with some folk, best part of 40 years since the Punk revolution! Good use of the tele end of your lens. But I'm just a little confused: in the WS the guy is wearing a demin jacket over a white vest...
P.S. what do you think of my emailed suggestion?

What a shot and ideas by the sculptors with this 'colourful monster dog' but it's a fabulous artwork and visually interesting. You have handled the lighting extremely well to make this a pleasing image along with excellent detail and contrast to the blue sky. Well done, TFS

At first I assumed this was the end of summer, shot very recently, and they were on their way down to the valleys. But of course they're going up! I love the unusual choice of having 2/3 of the frame as plain sky: but the strong colour expains the choice. The shot has real impact. Sounds like a great experience.
