Well done for overcoming your fears but this bridge was a a strong attraction for you!
It is a splendid bridge, like no other that I have witnessed.
Just imagine being suspended; I bet it's a smooth ride!
The view is amazing, too!
It's a whole vista!
You must advertise the Beta site as this looks so much better there!
Have a good day,

It's surprising how enterprising some of these living statues are and how complex some of their 'costumes' are. I suppose they must make a reasonable living from it, otherwise they wouldn't do it day in day out. They must have the patience of Job. Lovely triptych of images very well realised.
Continues warm and sunny here (24 today), goes downhill tomorrow, before recovering again for nest week. Have a great afternoon.

These bright and colourful boats, from your low viewpoint. appear to be on the march, heading towards the camera like a determined army! There are no other images, no distractions, which gives the boat images great strength!
My warm regards,

Interesting notes accompany your photograph and add understanding to the image.
The portrait is very well exposed.
The rich colours and details give character to this very impressive face whilst the headscarf and colourful clothing frame its weatherbeaten nature.
I like your use of shallow dof so that there are no distractions from this proud and determined face.
My warm regards,

Great composition. I don't have a problem at all with the guy in the background being ever so slightly out of focus; he is peripheral to the main protagonists. The mood is indeed quite palpable; I don't know whether it is do with the poses struck by the motorbikers or the well handled lighting, or maybe both. Definitely an image to be proud of. I like it a lot.

Personally, I would have been inclined to crop some of the lawn, putting the emphasis more on the interesting array of architecture. Just a thought. As it is, the grassy area makes a lovely contrast with the warmer tones of the background buildings. Excellent technical quality.

Looks perfect walking weather, not too hot but clear and bright. Also, very useful to the photographer. The path makes a good lead line drawing the viewer into the scene. Agreeable lights and colours and very good sharpness.

You have composed the image well using the nicely textured wall on the right to excellent effect. The castle ruins are put in evidence and sit nicely under that lovely sky. The image is ideally exposed and has very good colours and clarity.

The twisted geometric lines supplied by the tree make an interesting contrast with those of the dome and the bell tower in this well composed image. I like like very much the lights and the colours. Optimal sharpness.

Not many of these curious bridges left in the world. They have rather fallen out of fashion, though I know of one or two in France and the UK. The structure of the bridge sits well against the glorious blue sky. The people walking along the promenade create a pleasant animated atmosphere and supply scale.

You have framed the shot very well indeed, creating an interesting juxtaposition between the memorial and the glasshouse. The rather scantily dressed young lady is a bonus and makes a curious contrast with the garb worn by the statue.

Abandoned by its owners for whatever reason, it remains a place of delight for the photographer. The fish eye lens, though not really to my taste, somehow emphasises the sense of dilapidation and abandonment. Perfect exposure results in superb colours and textural detail.
