how did you get such an awesome shot?!
just goes to show that you DONT need to purchase a front row seat to a ballgame to get a wicked photo.
first of all, i really like the wide white border and small black trim..attractive set up.
and the green/brown combo is A+ too, striking colors for sure. again..awesome shot here.
I got you're email...thanks for understanding.
and yes, i'm whipped
but then again, aren't we all when we're in a relationship? lol
We'll have to meet up at some point, i'd love to go to a ballgame in Arizona, that'd be cool.
Oh, and i still think Jeter is over rated! haha...just razzing ya..you damn Yankee fan you!
but i'm glad to hear you were a Yankee fan back in the Mattingly days, when they sucked. It means you're a true fan, not a band-wagon fan.
The Nats are maybe one of the favorites to win it all this year, but I was a montreal expo fan way back when the team sucked. And i've emotionally endured all the years when the Expos LOST star players due to salary restrictions...So i understand where you're coming from.
the Yankees are on old team now though, and they keep signing old free agents...not sure if i approve of that philosophy. they need to get younger.
anyways...see you around

It was a really good decision to capture the scene in early morning light for that is the most immediate detail, the beautiful, rich colours.
The village mounts the hillside like attractive, orange steps, decorated at intervals with green vegetation, and creating a fine diagonal for the purpose of your excellent composition.
Have a great day,

Hi Gert,on my monitor not seems dark,for me is perfect another time your work with the scanner.The pic is another very interesting capture from this old trip,i like to watch the imported bottles that remind a lot the old glass bottles of Fanta watching the design,very well done! Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Hi Serghei,a very original pic made when you had nothing to do during your hospital days...very very nice to watch the signs of the birds legs on the snow,a curious capture,maybe could be an inspiration for some artist of paint..ehehe..have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

its great to see these types of shots from Turkey.
as much as i enjoy the typical touristy shots of famous landmarks, these are just as fun to view and to take.
it was worth it to be up in the morning light, proof is in the pudding as they say :)
really like the reds and browns mixed with greens and blues. contemplative mood.

I'm always attracted by photographs of N.Y. partly because they bring back such happy memories and also, to see places and views that I missed.
Surprisingly, I had no bridge views at all!
What was I doing!
Yes, the scene is a little hazy but it was when I was there ... the heat and the city pollution.
You have used the bridge well as a lead to that iconic skyline and it is very well balanced by the ferry, on an opposing line.
Have a lovely day,

I don't think this photo has enough impact...NOT!
looks like one major paper cut about to happen! haha
love the stark blues and in-your-face compo.
strong angular lines and lots of geometry going on here.
perfect shot in your gallery

Hi Jose,this place is truly magic with its spectacular rocks,a very original capture from these,not the usual large view but an excellent close up caught in the best moment with this beautiful warm light,i like it! Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Hi Ray,a beautiful capture of these abandoned cabins,the scenery is magic,close to Yosemite,and i like a lot the composition and the choice of point of view is truly perfect like the exposure of the different light levels.Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Hello Wiktor - I love this portrait of the Himba woman. Your shot conveys a strong feeling of shyness on her part. Marvellous skin tones against which her jewellery is beautifully presented. I am not 100% sure about the crop and have a done a WS which removes a large chunk of the RHS.

i'm a big fan of these city sky lines.
and for obvious reasons nyc has some of the best.
and yes, its a bit hazy and misty, the sky isn't clear but thats not your fault - what could you have done differently, nothing really.
the view is the star, the city is the star.
macjake (53278) 2014-09-30 1:08
so you say the emblem is NOT realed to the Nazi Germany??? thats so strange because its almost a copy of it.
why would they use such a similar emblem? Personally, that makes NO sense to me at all as to why the government chose that, or at least didnt change it.
as for the photo itself, i'm a big fan.
love the light, love the subject, love the angle so we can see the underside too.
