I was sure you had gone somewhere and was wondering where. I thought it must have been a warm country with beautiful beaches. Guess I was wrong ;-)
These partly blue small icebergs are fantastic and create a superb composition along with the white ice, the grey rocks and the darker sea. The sky looks desaturated but I am sure it really was as grey as this. This scenery is almost like an abstract painting, quite fabulous.

Very similar to the other photo, but it's a nice view and can be seen again. It shows again how the latest techniques and styles have found a natural place in the ancient city. The colours and clarity are also as good as before.

this is so beautiful. The architecture very impressive anyway but you have also captured in in a very creative way focusing exclusively on the reflection. Nice that you have decided to include the people sitting near the pond that has anchored the scene in the reality. You had a fantastic light over there and you made the great use of it.

this is so very impressive interior! I like the rich paintings. Orthodox churches have quite unique style with the icons being so particular full of symbols.
Fantastic mood captured here with dimmed light. Walking people add some life to the scene. I like very much this play of the light and shadow, colors and reflections.

never enough of this spectacular view!!!
I had the pleasure to visit it many years ago but without a camera in pre-digital times anyway. I feel like I have to go there to take picture exactly like this one.
This is so perfect! I like the POV, across the river from a slightly asymmetric angle, The light was lovely with a great contrast which emphasizes the beauty of the architecture and creates a feeling of depth. The color of the river is quite extraordinary, plus having the boats there allows to better imagine the scale of this place.

wow, this is really an impressive waterfall capture! I am so bad with waterfalls: it is an art -and you did a fantastic job here! The long time exposure, so well balanced exposure... Amazing effect of moving water and crispy sharp and feeling wet rocks sandwiching the falls.

wow, this is you?
I would never recognize you from this photo! I suppose the moderators will not believe this either and may be they will keep it here. Also: nobody really reads the notes anyway :)
Fantastic photograph, the person in it adds a lovely touch especially with the backpack. It does feel very adventurous. Amazing atmosphere, it reminds me the Patagonian landscapes.
I cannot believe that the photo is so old! My photos from before 2000 or just after -they are so bad! but the other thing is I usually used quite a cheap equipment and films.
This photo is older than I am :)
What a remarkable trip both in this photo and your journey over 10 years on TE. In fact recently emka was celebrating her 9th birthday and Serghei his 10th!
So it seems many people joined at the same time +- 1 year :)
Excellent photograph of highest quality and so much sentimentally charged,
Isn't Madagascar even further? And wild as well I suppose?

It's a beautiful view across the fields and the castle seen in the forest in the distance. The clouds are very nicely shaped too. I feel once again that you have fallen for the temptation to exaggerate the colours a bit. I tried to make a desaturated workshop but I can't post it. Probably another bug, because I had the same problem the last time I tried to change somebody else's photo. I will mail my failed WS to you so you can have a look.
PS Now I see the ws has been posted, even though I was told it was not possible.

This fine composition is characterized by two bright and distinct diagonals, one partly red, the other green. The trees, the hedge and one small white hut are wonderfully reflected in the calm dark blue water. The photo has an excellent balance and the light and colours are perfect.

You don't looks at all like the man I have seen in some WS photos recently. Considering that I look pretty much the same as 46 years ago you really have changed considerably ;-).
End of silly jokes. Congratulations on you anniversary. I am still one year away from that. Will the site survive until then? You have posted a lot of remarkable photos in these years and this is one of them. It's so old and so well preserved and so well scanned, the scenery is so magnificent and you placed (or maybe cropped) yourself so perfectly at a third. The note is well written and interesting and an inseparable part of today's posting.

Brilliant everyday scene. Great timing for the cart and the lady in the distance makes for a nice splash of colours.
I'm flying to Pakistan in two weeks (unfortunately not enough time for Punjab) so it's nice to browse your gallery from that country.

Beautiful image of a beautiful interior! I really like the symmetry and portrait format is a great choice for this time of photo.
You captured the intricate architectural details really well.

Niesamowite kolory! Niebo i pola w tej samej, pomaranczowej tonacji. Zamek wydaje sie malenki w porownaniu do ogromu otaczajacego krajobrazu.
Nawet nie wiem, czy tam bylam, na pewno nie za moich "fotograficznych" czasow.
kasianowak (9201) 2016-08-26 5:31
Timing doesn't get better than this! Well-done on pressing the shutter button in exactly the right moment. The scene looks really good in defused light, with Mediterranean light there would have been too much contrast.
kasianowak (9201) 2016-08-26 5:22
Well-spotted detail and brilliant crop. We can see part of the door and part of the cage but in those details we can also recognise the whole objects with their shapes and textures. Nice colours emphasised by diffused light.

Super panorama! Swietna kompozycja z trojkatem rzeki u dolu oraz horyzontem znaczonym wieza z jednej strony i nowoczestny budynkiem z drugiej. Czerwone dachy bardzo ladnie kontrastuja z zielenia oraz kolorem nieba.
