This is a fine photo of this humorous statue of the classic M. Hulot in his characteristic style. He is well placed at the curve of the railings, overlooking the beach where he made so many of us laugh. He deserves a memorial. So many years after his death Jacques Tati is still a frequent guest in Swedish crosswords. Your photo gains a lot from the fine light and beautiful colours.

It's certainly a beautiful cat but I would advice you to choose a slightly smaller one, fancying a meal of Whiskas rather than human flesh. It's a fine photo and the colors of the rock match the beauty's fur quite well.

I think you choose this POV to show us the light green fox from its best angle. The green person goes very well with the water and the trees and of course he adds a nice human touch. The view is, as you say, slightly gloomy but not so dark that I would call it disturbing. Did you ever try the shadows/highlights? It could totally spoil a photo when used without further thoughts, but carefully handled it can do wonders to tricky exposures. At least that's my experience, but I admit to having extremely rudimentary knowledge when it comes to PP.
Have a nice weekend,

A fine composition with a rather romantic atmosphere. The lights from the windows look very cosy and match the light from the half moon. The dark blue evening sky dominates the view beautifully.

A plain and simple but very nice composition. The paper flowers look very bright against the white wall. I wonder if the curtain is used to match the flowers, or the other way around. Or maybe it's just a coincidence.

Portuguese food is often delicious. Let's hope this restaurant is not too touristic and adapted to foreign tastes. It's a nice photo in fine B&W tones of a situation we all know, whether to pick this restaurant or go somewhere else.

A beautiful view and an excellent composition. There is not one dead or empty part of this photo. At every angle there are interesting views of boats, houses, mountains and clouds. The light has a wonderful brightness and the colours have a fine intensity.

With this photo I think you have followed some important rules for composition, mainly a beautiful frame and a human foreground. The roofs of the two stupas fit perfectly inside the beautifully decorated screen and there are enough people walking across the burning hot tiles to show what a lively place this is at all times of the day. Without any doubt this is also to me one of the greatest places ever.
Another gem that you had carefully hidden for several years ;-).
PS I allowed myself to use your space for a message to Stephen, although I am not sure that he will see it.

I would not call this kind of graffiti "art". It is done with no consideration to the community, it shows no artistic talent and has no other message then "I was here". But along with the red door, the surrounding wall and the house number all these tags get an interesting graphic effect. I would say that the graffiti is not art, but your photo is.

It's an impressive view of the mainly white houses and red roofs. Seeing so many looking the same, so tightly packed together but at different angles, has a strong impact. Great light and colours and a fine green frame at the bottom.

These are very original pink chairs and table, not the kind you would expect to find in a street. But they go well with the light blue door and window shutters and the grey wall. It's a simple but pleasant photo with a good combination of colours.

indeed I was quite confused seeing this capital town under Serbia. I guess some countries are recognized by others or not. For example the Crimea now has been practically taken over by Russia but no other country recognizes it. It is a bit like with the Eurovision song contest, countries have sympathies to selected countries. Poland has a sympathy towards Serbia as it is a Slavic country as well -however we have been dependent from Russia so long that we are rather supporting autonomic movements. And so Poland has recognized Kosovo even though we are historically closer to Serbs. Russia did not recognize it as Serbia has very strong ties with Russia. Also the end of the war in the Balkan peninsula is mainly thanks to NATO/USA -and so everything from NATO is opposed by Russia automatically. Lovely place, very well presented. This blue hour has a dark grey mood. Nice use of the fountain in the foreground.
Everything well thought through.
Regarding the locations Porteplume has a separate thread on the forum where you can report problems, I see if I can enquire about Kosovo.
Thanks for sharing this so exotic and so close journey.

Hi Gert, How they can go and walk like this, I wonder. I would be afraid of height. All three photos are nice but I like most the workshop with tall women, tour leader without the group and beautiful background. Here, the children seem not interested at all, only one girl want to see the leaflet. Nice colours, the boy in red matches well the high guy (maybe the reason you chose this picture). Interesting triangle - the guy, leaflet and heads of kids.

A nostalgic picture due to the conversion in sepia mood, the lonely person on the plateform is eye catching, well located on the picture and the perspective. But your post is too contrasted, details are missing mainly in the sky but also in the train and station.
CLODO (32140) 2015-08-28 2:11
Very well, I like this street picture taken at the right moment when the boy on his scooter appears between 2 pilars, while the crowd is wandering. The sepia like gives a nostalgic mood as the silhouettes shdows on the pavement
CLODO (32140) 2015-08-28 2:06
It's really your style and you prove it every day. I like very much this close up in low keys, the red smile of this man accepting well to be taken in picture. The white dots in his eyes are giving life to this piece of art
CLODO (32140) 2015-08-28 2:03
your post is just close to this one http://fr.trekearth.com/gallery/Europe/France////photo1501238.htm on my prefered list! What an amazing color parallelism!
I like how the small and tall table is welcoming the tourists to have a break and a drink while visiting the city.
Nice soft hues
