this is the best sunset photo I have seen in some time now. I like very much very realistic colors. The clouds are having a nice grey silver tone. They have pleasant fluffy shape and contrast well with the hot area of the sky warmed by the sun. The landscape looks amazing in such light.

this is quite a funny composition. First of all the houses look extraordinary but also the way you composed it it looks as if the boat was somehow misplaces here on a grassy land. It also has a lovely blue color.
Very well done!!

swietny punkt widzenia, dokladnie w polowie wysokosci tych budynkow sprawia ze z patrzymy troche w dol a troche w gore. Swietnie obramowales ten uroczy widok kamiennicami po obu stronach. Tak jak je uzyles sprawiaja wrazenie jeszcze wyzszych niz sa.
Piekne miejsce. Swietna praca, gratulacje,

lovely winter composition. We didn't have much winter this year, and I don't miss it but I think there is a rule in England: no winter -no summer... So in the end I would prefer some winter. And my little daughter probably never seen such icicles like in this photo :(
I guess I have to visit Switzerland to show my daughter how a winter may look like :)
Very well seen and captured!

very impressive effect indeed! The seascape relatively simple yet the sky shows a real spectacle! Amazing play of the light and shadow. In particular of course the sun rays clearly passing between the clouds!
It could be a good illustration to a book on how God created the world.

beautiful natural scenery! I like very much the reflection. It makes a lovely symmetrical effect mirroring the row of trees. The hills behind add more character to the landscape.
Very skillful framing both with the tree branches above and the well thought through foreground.
Very attractive, excellent work!

spectacular composition! The reflection is amazing with fragments of it being 100% and some also having ice. Geometry very successful with trees providing verticals and the channel diagonals.
What is unique about this photo is that it does have a strong winter touch and yet it is so colorful as if it was a summer photo!
Fantastic use of the sun, slightly hidden behind the tree.

The children don't seem to know how to start the goat's engine. Maybe they were too scared of your camera to move. It's an amusing and charming photo with fine colours and a nice view of the park and the street behind it.
I wish you a safe journey back home. Don't lose anything more ;-)

I like very much London and the Tower Bridge is one of my favourite subjects there, it is so unique! First time I see its view from this angle but what makes it very original is the boat in front of it. It is somehow disturbing the scale here: it is hart to judge if it is as tall as the bridge or rather much smaller.

I cannot really judge you: sometimes going the extra mile may take you to a whole new viewpoint which will allow you to better appreciate the place you visit. On another hand, indeed one cannot go everywhere, one has to sense when to stop...
The architecture here seems quite extraordinary, I don't think I have seen photos from this place before.
Pilgrim adds another nice touch.
Excellent work, I admire the quality of your scan too,

This elegant and stylish composition is a fit tribute to the three navy men who perished in the sea. three more to add to the horrifying number of human lives that have already been lost in these dark blue waters during the past few years. The perfectly well balanced composition, harmonious in colours, can soothe a worried mind. Besides, it is technically perfect too.

very attractive presentation of the old Greek monument.
You photographed it from a low perspective which makes it appear as so high! May be it is high anyway but I believe it appears higher that it is :)
Great light, interesting yellowish color of the marble.
Very well seen and captured!

very impressive view! The fortress must have been huge! I like how the little bay is sandwiched between the fortress and the beach further ahead. The clarity is amazing allowing us to see so far away!

so this is a place where the trams hide. Nice capture with several trams in one frame! Great compo with the tracks in the foreground, some nice reflection in the tram window and attractive asymmetry.

very challenging light but a very impressive effect! The shaded area have such pleasant well saturated colors. In particular reflection is so vivid and feels so real! The sun lit fragment which appears behind is an anchor with reality.
Fantastic composition with well thought through foreground and nice diagonals in the distance. In between we see lovely tree silhouettes.
mkamionka (34615) 2016-02-11 10:35
it was quite a challenge to balance the exposition in those two such different worlds. You managed it very well: we can appreciate some ornamental details of the interior and the outer world. Great idea indeed. The photographer always adds a nice touch.

HOPE is a most important word for all of us!
I'm pleased it was used by Barack Obama for he needed that sentiment when he took over his presidency. As Gert so ably noted, it will not be one that applies to Donald Trump if the American people are foolish enough to vote for him!!!
It's a great piece of art and sharply captured in your photograph.
I do like how it stands out against the black b/g.
I have the feeling that if it were cropped, tighter to the actual word, with the kiosk on the left removed, along with a little of the other surroundings, it would have seriously greater impact.
My warm regards,

What a charming shot!
I don't think I have ever seen a goat pulling a cart, before.
I suppose it won't be too arduous, pulling the children.
It is a very nicely angled shot to create a pleasing flow from f/g to b/g and such sweet children as a focal point!
You amaze me with your travelling!
I can just imagine you booking a flight to the International Space Station!
Have a great continuation of your holiday,

szczerze mowiac o wiele bardziej wole to bez choinki, ta choinka wydawala mi sie najpierw bardzo dekoracyjna ale jednak sporo zaslonila. Tutaj nic nie zasloniete, zdjecia chyba z tego samego albo podobnego punktu. Tez wybrales srodkowy poziom ha ha. Swietnie zbalansowana ekspozycja.
Gratulacje i dziekuje za wspomnienie mojego zdjecia :)
