another special one from your old stock. Excellent street view with an eye catching architecture at back. You composed it nicely with fine depth and sharpness. Excellent picture quality though it had been taken 42long years ago. Thanks for sharing it superb one. Tfs.

I am still absorbing your spirit of youth, eager to trek to these far flung places and travel alone!
Your photograph gives us a big contrast with your previous shots. Here, the roads are surfaced and crowded with people, whilst the main mode of transport is not animal!
The building is superbly decorated with intricate patterns, leading ultimately to the large, golden dome. You must have been in awe when you saw this!
I don't think the offending pedestrian spoils the shot at all. He adds to the sense of a busy city.
Have a lovely day,

a wonderful image of the coast with great clarity and sharpness,the colors are natural and the light management very good as well,
the human inclusion in frame makes the composition still more better and friendlier,

I have really enjoyed just gazing at this photograph. The colours are rich and appealing. I love how the textures of the dead leaves crowd the f/g but, also, make a stunning introduction to the similarly coloured trees and the semi hidden building.
It is a very beautifully composed photograph.
My warm regards,

Dodgems waiting to dodge!
The dodgems are mysteriously peeping from under their covers, like naughty schoolboys! Well, in my experience, naughty schoolboys loved to bang and crash in these vehicles!
A nicely composed shot which creates good leads and a fine sense of perspective. I do like how you have captured the smooth, shiny texture of the floor. It bears evidence of previous car movements!
Have a lovely day,

This is a very fine capture of this cathedral interior. Precisely framed and making good use of the vertical format. I like the use of black and white, an unusual choice for an interior, but it suits the mood perfectly here. The image is well exposed and has a good range of tones and excellent sharpness.

A well composed image of this Hindu deity, who is nicely juxtaposed against the temple on the far side of the lake. I like the light and the reflections of the sky and clouds to be observed in the quietly rippling waters of the lake. The image has very good colours and sharpness.

Home is where the heart is!
This is a fine blue hour shot.
The artificial light makes patterns on the skyscrapers, which are then artistically reflected in the water.
Satisfying to take; satisfying to gaze at.
Have a great day,

The tree resembles a mythological snake, rising upwards and shaking its head, covered with long, sharp antlers! It is sharply defined against the blue sky.
It dominates the f/g and creates a fine sense of depth from here to the distant, snow clad mountains.
For me, the bridge has less importance.
Have a great day,

The ancient stone gateway makes an excellent frame for the street beyond and has the benefit of drawing the viewer into the scene where we can explore this delightful town further . I like very much the colours and the lighting. Well exposed with very good rendering of the textural detail in the wall.
