Hi Gert, Public transport in Asia or South America is something that fascinate me always. Specially how many people can get in the vehicle - motorbike, tuktuk or bus. And I would be delighted to go by it with locals. I suppose you didn't go by something like this. This time you had more films if you made three photos short time one after the other. nice picture.
Merry Christmas :)

How can anyone not be entranced by the 'Lakes'!
It is a lovely area and with all the attributes of greenery, hills and fences, so attractive to photographers. It's a very nicely composed photograph where the wooden features set a good f/g, leading to the fields and, ultimately, the hills. It's a pity you couldn't open the gate to welcome us in but ... it could have lead to a scene like one from a silent movie chase!!
Although most of us see the Lake District in summer, it is stunningly beautiful in winter, particularly if it snows!
Have a happy and relaxing Christmas,

Your aspect was well chosen, creating an irresistible lead from the f/g into the castle doorway and, at the same time, creating a good sense of perspective. The details are sharp and well saturated.

You have done a fine job of detailing the colour tones to indicate the bumps and depressions in the rock surfaces.
I like how you have used the rock across the top corner, it creates a real sense of depth to the whole.
Have a lovely Christmas,

You're right, this is different!
The people, with their stance, give the impression that this is a film scene, and what a fantastic backcloth! It is beautifully composed with just the right dof. I like it very much!

Happy Christmas to you, too.
I is good to see that there is so much going on in Bruges after the main tourist season.
You have given us an excellent, bird's eye view of he market place with the shoppers, the stalls, the skating and the horse carriages. It is alive with attractions!
The circular road guides us around the scene, with lots of opportunities to absorb the attractive buildings, too.

This misty morning has given an unusual but attractive light to the scene; it creates very mystical atmosphere.
You have positioned the trees well so that there is a very natural, diagonal movement from the l/h f/g into the b/g.
My warm regards,

Not the ancient Roman views that you have shown us previously but, nevertheless, a very well composed photograph that shows different and interesting aspects of the city. You have excellent leads, contrasting textures, and all under a fine light.

The misty conditions add to the mood of the scene, giving the artificial light a warm glow in the f/g, to illuminate the figure, whilst dimming considerably in the b/g, for a sense of mystery and depth.
You have composed the photograph well, giving just the right amount of detail and imagination.
Have a happy Christmas,

The lights supply the mood, which is reinforced and multiplied in the swirling reflections of the water. The ferry is very well positioned and supplies a fine sense of depth to the tower and skyscrapers.
You have used a high ISO, which I know works very well in poor light, so I have a feeling that the 'noise' is probably pollution being picked up by the artificial lights.

I like how you have carefully balanced the photograph so well with the carved column in the f/g and the tower in the b/g. The road leads nicely through the scene engaging with the shoppers and the line of buildings. The light is excellent and the exposure sharp.
Have a great Christmas,

I always seem so busy at Christmas that I haven't been on the site for quite a few days. I'm so glad that I had time to post today, and to catch this fine photograph and message from you.
Your photograph has a lovely balance and delightful light from the low sun. The young ladies add a focus and joie de vivre to the scene.
Have a great Christmas,
