It's not quite downtown Manhattan, but this photo gives a clear indication of the rush and crowds and noise that will meet the visitor soon. It was great fun to open the photo at the largest size to get a close look at the many signs and other details. I am told I am welcome, but at the same time warned of taking the wrong way, and the NYPD Police is watching me. The half naked jogging man fills the foreground well, along with the cyclists, who are possibly going the right way.

I suppose trees standing so neatly on a lines along the road must have been planted here deliberately, but that was a long time ago and now this looks like a fairly untouched part of nature. It has the simple beauty of nature where humans haven't interfered too much. It looks like a very pleasant area for a long walk, and at least two other persons had the same idea as you. With their discreet clothes they almsot blend with the scenery.

The many red details on the wall and the windows make a bright impression and the figures stunning in the windows are very interesting to watch. The boat is nicely placed and creates a good foreground.

Life is extremely tough in Cambodia and most people have no option but to beg or to sell whatever they can find, which is more or less the same thing, in order to survive. The warm late afternoon light gives this scene of misery a certain beauty.

what a beautiful window! I like very much the decorations: the wooded curtains and the colorful flowers. The light was magnificent adding so attractive diagonal shadows.
Very well seen and captured, you have a great eye for charming spots,

Drottningholmsteatern is decades older than La Scala and La Fenice and supposed to be the best maintained old theatre in the world, meaning using the original equipment and decorations etc. Which doesn't make this one less impressive. There is a lot of gilded ornaments here and the light is good enough for a clear photo.'
Either your camera has the wrong settings or you are lost in time, but all your photos seem to be posted the day before they were taken ;-).

wow, this is beautiful and it does look familiar.
Amazing square with no skyscrapers behind which makes it feel like a small town in the mountains :)
The hills indeed add a lovely touch here. And the sky was attractive too.
I see you have enhanced the saturation which makes people to stand out from the surrounding.
I like touristy places so this would be probably my favourite place in Bogota,

Most of Bali has been extremely touristic for several decades, but this is a timeless scene of local life totally undisturbed by the hordes of foreign visitors. Unless of course this is the only field on the island that is still plowed by buffaloes, kept like this just for tourists...
It looks good in any case.

very attractive presentation of this castle, I am not surprised at all that you are showing it again from another angle. The light was fantastic, in such light even the grey color feels so attractive.
Wonderful sky. Perfectly used curve of the fountain as a foreground.

This is such a famous place and yet this photo seems a bit unusual. Most pictures show the cathedral or the inside of the galleria. I can't remember seeing precisely this angle so often, but it is no less impressive than any other view from this place. The shopping mall looks like a palace. The colours are fine and there are enough people seen to make me happy.

very attractive scene from a ball. Beautifully dressed ladies captured partially in a movement. Very interesting light with the shadows of the ladies pointing towards the viewer. Great effect with black and white as well.
Great idea and well realized,

bardzo przyjemna kompozycja z brama jako ramka dla interesujacej architektury i grupy turystow spacerujacych po placyku. Tutysci sa w cieniu a wiec dobrze wnosza tylko sylwetki ktore nie przeszkadzaja podczas gdy wieza jest ladnie oswietlona.
Zastanawiam sie czy byla mozliwosc cofniecia sie nieco wowczas ta wiez zrobilaby sie wieksza w porownaniu z brama.

An excellent composition of the field below the steep mountainside. The small church is quite simple but has a fantastic location in this beautiful scenery. I love the tones of green and yellow contrasting nicely with the grey rocks. The photo also has a great clarity.

What a wonderfully simple and yet very appealing composition, the two surfers with their colourful surf boards reflected in the smooth wet sand while a lone tourist, walking along the diagonal water's edge, throws a shadow and completes an isosceles triangle perfectly.
Very well seen and very well taken with lovely tones and textures and fine vibrant colours.

You timed this photo very well to capture the elegant lady, in her beautiful and probably quite expensive sari, as she steps out of the temple. The fine light outside and the darkness give her a striking appearance. Above her the wall is full of marvellous figures and ornaments. It's in every way an excellent photo.

The church is very nice and the tower is fantastic, a very beautiful and impressive building. I like the clarity of the photo and the fine contrasts of brown bricks, green lawn and blue sky. It's a bright and very attractive photo.

I'm not sure that anyone in the U.K. would have considered using bright orange to paint the structure of the house, it's always black and white for us, but it does work well and makes the house appear amazingly warm and friendly.
I like how you have composed the photograph, the buildings increasing in height as you progress into the scene, with the focal ones brightly lit. The exposure is nice and sharp.
Have a lovely w/e,
Warm and sunny here, after a chilly start.

Have you ever looked at a photograph and then had to revisit it immediately to get more than a cursory impression.
This was one such shot!
It is a very well conceived photograph, perfectly composed, perfect for b&w and one which stirs both imagination and guilt!
Have a great w/e,
Royaldevon (40264) 2016-10-22 2:52
I do admire people who can give this scene the beauty and the magnificence that it deserves. I really struggled and have never posted a photograph! This, on the other hand, is one very beautiful, atmospheric shot.
I like how the warmly lit tower is framed in the gap between the other buildings.
There is a fine sense of depth.
My warm regards,
Royaldevon (40264) 2016-10-22 2:48
I presume the temperature is still warm, encouraging such activities!
This is a beautifully simple composition, the four figures making a strong triangle within the frame. There are no other distractions, though there are some excellent details, like the reflections, to enhance the photograph.
Have a good w/e,
