Ola Ana, Hahaha, this is great! Funny character, she demonstrates also a card. I am sure there are always tourists wanting to make such photo. But the best is of course this pussy cat in pink dress. Poor animal, to sit all day like this and pose.
WArm regards Malgo

A very beautiful sunrise , there are few sights more inspiring than one like this. Very nice placement of the sun over that distant mountain which adds fine depth and the range of colours is superb. Thanks for sharing

The alternating E / Element text on the bg wall first caught my eye. Then the lovely rippled reflections and their colour in the water. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. Tfs!

That's a very strong shadow and is amazing how prominent the man's cigarette is in it ! Nice choice of clack and white for this candid shot, it really does make the shadow more prominent and seems to be a stronger feature that even the man himself
Have a great day

I love the blue color of the sea and the elevated vantage point. The seastack with the boat emerging from behind it makes a good focal point. Splendid sharpness and the bg walled town reminds me of Dubrovnik. Tfs!

It sort of resembles Times Square in NYC. A superb elevated vantage point high above the streets with good sharpness and broad streets full of traffic. The red brick building at right contrasts well with the grey blue sky. Tfs!

As always, you have written an interesting and fascinating note and provided us with a fine photograph to illustrate it.
The buildings above the canal's bank are interesting but their reflections in the rippled water of the canal are more so with their myriad colours and tones and very pleasing shapes and contours. I have to agree with Claude that the very bright area at bottom right might have been better cloned out or otherwise avoided but I like the bold composition, lovely soft light and remarkable colours.
And, once again, how on earth do you manage to take a picture at 1/6 second, presumably without a tripod? Maybe there was a railing there for support - or you have the steady hand of a surgeon? :)

The purple bougainvillea adds a welcome splash of colour to this shot. Nice repetition of the classical Roman copy of Greek columns, with good sharpness. The former mosque provides architectural contrasts. Tfs!

Please do not apologise - the dog is quite enough without the child and scooter!
This is a beautiful photograph of this humble dwelling and it is made so much more attractive by the crumbling stucco on its fašade as well as the rich warm tones of the underlying ancient stonework. Your composition is perfect with the archway with the dog passing it by perfectly placed in the frame and the line of colourful laundry above very nicely draws the eye upwards.
Beautiful soft light, fine rich colours, perfect exposure and, as always, exquisite details and sharpness.

how could I resist this shot?
there's always something interesting and intriguing about a lonely person on a but, especially in India.
nice to see that she's wearing a strong colour contrasting yellow as well.
thanks for this one

you know many TE members like water reflections, I know I do. And infact its bc of TE that i even know about them, i didn't before.
and anytime you can post a photo here from a TE meeting, well, it's just that much better right!
the focal point for me has to be the large 4 windows reflected onto the water. love the wiggle and jiggle lol

for me personally, I like this shot for its activity and the architecture. and of course its always fun to have matching colours with the rooftop and the passing car.
fun and charming shot, thanks for this one.

my goodness, i'm getting so far behind in your newly posted photos, i've got to catch up a bit.
Guess I'm just not use to you posting so many haha.
well, its easy to see why this was chosen as a 'favorite' from one of our members. its quite the autumn scene with all those colours. I think the green grass along the bottom helps out alot as well, as does the little waterfall.
so much to like about the photo, i think the misty air worked in your favour.
this walk certainly paid off in your favour John, nice shot

hmmmm....Cambodia eh? this shot gets me thinking for sure, as i'm sure thats what the lady is doing as well.
Not sure if I'm really wanting to visit Cambodia yet, i'd say its on my travel list, but perhaps way down the list. Not even sure why to be honest, maybe its because in my own mind I think its very similar to Thailand, and i've already been there. I think thats why.
anyways, enough about that.
as i've said, theres a real chill factor going on here, relaxed and laid back atmosphere. perhaps a slight breeze in the wind, fresh flowing water, and just her and her thoughts. Priceless.

you know I have to make a comment again about you shooting directly into the sun, haha...I always try to avoid such conditions, but you seem drawn to it like bees to honey lol
A Monkey Puzzle Tree eh? never heard of that one before, guess we learn something new everyday.
but having said all of that, its the actual cemetery that i enjoy the most, and for some reason I get the idea there are lots of wicked cool cemeteries all over Ireland.
thanks for this one, a real Irish scene.

super looking bridge, the bridge is incredibly charming and attractive, lots of history and stories to share about it too i bet.
nice to have the autumn colours from the trees aswell, but again, for me its all about that bridge. sweet shot
