this brings back lot of memories for me as well. I did the 6 hour hike along the river when I was there. Lovely to work through different farm and houses. and the famous mountains and peaks just so wonderful. You have beautiful day here, with good light and blue sky and not too hazy. Every thing is clear to see. Excellent photo and good composition and the feeling of peace and quietness after the high season.

Beautiful photo of the boys you have here. I love it, boys will be boys, novice or not. I don't think it really mean much to them, but as an adult to see kids even with toy guns makes me uncomfortable. It is the beginning of violent, at least they know the intension of it. Anyway, I hope they stay innocent as long as they can. We were planning to here but with so many other reasons and cost, we ended up in Nepal instead. I still would love to visit Bhutan one day.
A great photo.

Very nice and colorful photo to show the event with good cause. The big hat gives a humorous atmosphere to the photo. IWD is not that well known in the U.S. but I think it getting more attention as more women are celebrating it.

Those falls are one of the natural wonders in the World and I had never seen them like this (although, here in Brazil, our Iguaçu Falls have also their dry season)!
Very interesting and attractive picture!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, vertical format, chosen pov and composition are all excellent!
TFS - congrats,

Well, this has certainly stirred the emotional pot, hasn't it? Quite provocative imagery, something completely unexpected. As many would probably assume, I'm accustomed to guns, but seeing it them the context of these two young monks really makes an impression. Undoubtedly, much social commentary could be addressed concerning the subject matter.
I think the instant impact this carries goes a long way to the compelling nature of this photo, you've really made people stop and think about the visual. Love the black & white format for this expressive capture, and the depth of field is tremendous. Very thought provoking. Bravo! Have a great day ahead.

Beautiful and charming city. the rain is like a natural cleaner that wash the street out and the shine on the stone pavement make it look so nice and clean and new. The rain also makes the color more saturated and not people around gives it that peaceful and quiet mood. Very good photo with excellent quality and composition.

Another wonderful picture of London!
Sharpness, management of light, (such beautiful) colors, horizontal format, slim black borders, chosen pov and composition are all outstanding photo qualities that I truly enjoyed!
TFS - congrats,

Outstanding! You've captured so succinctly the modern world in which we live...face down in a phone!? Seemingly and completely oblivious to any of their surroundings, a telling sign of the times. These two young men have at least provided some colorful attire to contrast the ghostly looking entertainer, who sadly might go unnoticed. Hope they weren't searching on the phone for the nearest McDonalds...or we're all in trouble from the next generation. Smart observation and quick realization to grab this shot. Nicely done! Enjoy the rest of the weekend. Take good care.

Something straight out of Lord of the Rings, this looks incredibly fantasy-like in appearance. Must be a rock climbers paradise, yeah? :) Absolutely amazing what nature has produced, and you've done a fine job in putting it on display through still imagery. The elevated viewpoint offers a sensational look upon these formations, with much definition and dimension. I love how you've composed this to include the colorful surroundings to brighten it up and show how it all relates to each other. Almost looks other worldly, quite fascinating...and very well presented for us to see from afar. Enjoy the rest of the weekend. Take it easy.

Haha, I wonder just how many times people have had that thought when they notice us? :) His slight grin would suggest a welcome response though, and it sure makes me smile in return. The raised arm, with the sight of musical instruments in the background, makes this a much more festive and happy moment...far removed from anything of resent from being photographed. More impressive depth of field work, keeping sharp focus on your main subject and still showing abundant supporting context of the scene. Keep the party going! :) Have a great day ahead. All the best.
