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.

I Think this is a very charming location, and mainly because you have given a very distinct personality to the tuktuk. As the man sits there explaining whtev er it is, the little yellow vehicle seems to be in awe of the convserstation, and as it sticks it's nose into the frame like this, it makes an amusing vision of a grity everyday scene. I like this a lot :)

Ciao Frank,una composizione molto originale,di solito su punta l'obiettivo verso il centro della scala per create quell'effetto chiocciola che abbiamo visto spesso,la tua è una scelta diversa e vincente per mostrare qualcosa di differente,ottimo ed interessante lavoro! Buon weekend,Luciano

This is a great scene for many reasons, but for me the most beautiful part is the wave and so so friendly smile of the nun upstairs, its a magical moment to have captured. Such a surreal scene too, unlike anything I could ever hope to e in my daily life. It brings together wonderful elements to make a very fascinating scene. Really nicely done.

I am reminded of the movie ate Perfect Storm as I view this, the boat seems so insignificant in front of this angry sky, and it is perfectly placed in the frame to give equal importance to the power of nature and the insignificant position of the boat. Despite that thou, the boat still pops out, the color being vibrant and very alive in this sea of blue and grey. A very nicely thought out scene that works beautifully.
Have a great weekend

Even though it's a pyramid up there, it's never looked as prominent as in your shot here, it is easy for my eye to seperate the pyramid from the rest of the building and set it in an ancient place, it is glowing so beautifully here, and set against the active angry sky behind, it looks very fine, lie a view fom some epic movie. Nicely done to capture such a unique shot of such a well known building.

Because of the angle you chose, I have an overwhelming desire to slide down this building, wheeeeee......
Of course I know the reality would not be a gentle slide down, but nonetheless :)
Its great to see such an important building being it to such good use and at only a million a go, a bargain too. Well, I will say this when I win the euro millions later tonight.
As ever you have really made the utmost from the light here and have created a magical effect, exactly like Gotham as you say. A beautiful piece of built history, presented perfectly.

This glass like reflection is beautiful, and even more so accompanied by your note to tell the reason for the bRidges design. I love that the massive mountain peeps into the frame like this making it seem at for all it's mass and bulk, it is as interested in seeing the beautiful moment as I am. Really great colors and the reflection is class.

Hi Rosemary,it does look like a rather well recalled pose this man has, as he gazes off into the distance about his vessel, but that doesn't take at all from the charm of the scene. I like ths me of the boat, that really got me. Though I know Pearl bailey the actress, I know it better as the name of the high school in the tv show family guy :)
Very vibrant and lively scene, and the colors are very appealing.

You got a spectacular light show for this moment, and combined with the mist on the ground it really does make a magical shot. My eye is torn between admiring the mysterious lower half or the vibrant upper half, each of which compliment each other beautiful, I love how the church in the distance pierces the skyline, like a wizards tower.
Noel_Byrne (22112) 2014-10-24 12:34
I like your composition, a very nice idea to place the main temple on the third like this. I like also the wide view which presents the building in a very real and very everyday setting, the other buildings all around give a good sense of this place not be a tourist site, bt a real living breathing temple for the people. Nicely presented.

this is so beautiful. Its a pleasure to watch such a great quality photo. It is so sharp and colors so pleasantly saturated. The dark sky contrasts well with the white or bright town.
It seems quite elegant.
The boy entering the scene adds another nice touch and some life.

great perspective. This angle creates a fantastic effect, it works out very impressive with very rich decorative architecture as a background. The statue seems so close and so sharp I can almost touch it and feel its texture.
I have a photo of this monument in my collection too but more a postcard like view: click here to see it.
You have a great eye! Excellent work,

interesting way to enjoy the tea. Sitting on a table! which is covered with a carpet.
I admire your collection but also your memory -you tell us about these trips as if you came back yesterday.
Great portrait, I like the colors.

this is a very attractive spot again offering breath taking views. I like the location of this village, it seems so dispersed across the bay. Charming clouds well decorate the scene, some of them being behind the mountain other in front of it and some in the reflection...
Beautiful light and colors.
