Ciao Luciano. Your photos of Tunisia make me want to go there. Such a lovely atmosphere of a place where the sea and the sun dominate, yet mankind has built structures that although functional, they do contribute to and complement the beauty of the place. The sand and sea look very clean. I am sure that the seafood must be top quality. Ciao. Klaudio.

Hi Gerrit. Reminds me of "How Green is My Valley".Is that the lake on the left edge of the photo? Any photos of the lake? I suppose that the original forests and wildlife had to give way to cultivation. Lovely POV. Regards. Klaudio.

Hi Wolfgang. I remain perplexed as to what I am looking at. The model seems to appear from nowhere, half substantial.Even the shadows of the woman and the dog are confusing. The quality and the timing of the shot are excellent and usual. Best wishes. Klaudio.

Oh, so cute daily life scene! My congratulations, Gerrit! Excellent capture, amazing scene. It just makes me smile. I will look through your reports from Jamaica some later.
Best wishes from cool rainy Ural,

I like it. Very attractive and artistic winter scenery. Perfect quality, excellent DoF, very nice colors and hues of the winter. -15 C is not so cold for us, but I can imagine how you hide a camera under coat, for example ;)

Great! I see this is your old post, but I have never seen this one and I really like it. This tower reminds me a head of some creature. The windows look like the eyes, the wall is like a body... Amazing composition, perfect quality, excellent colors!
Have a great Sunaday!

Hi, Jean Claude, my neighbor again,
Simple idea and excellent realisation! Good capture of the reflection, just a mirror! Well seen. I think the real life is not so picturesque, as reflection, for example. We can see the yellow building in the water, although this wall looks just white ;)

I just couldn't resist this one.
How could anyone resist viewing or taking a photo of a red and white lighthouse :)
interesting note, and now i'm going to have to check out that other photo from the inside too.
the blue and white skyline in the bg helps to bring out the lighthouse itself.

No tripod, eh? So I guess this one sure ain't HDR.
But what a beautifully composed photograph and one which just works so well despite the obvious disortion caused by such a wide angle view. The circles of hanging lights above the floor (where there are presumably rows upon rows of individual prayer mats where the trespasser is standing) are perfectly horizontal and balance well the circular dome high above.
Gorgeous light and colours and stunning details and sharpness - as always.
And, of course, an interesting and enlightening note!

still in use after 300 years eh? wow.
thats impressive for sure.
the best part of the photo has to be that window, its so crusted. same for the outside walls.
so many textures and various colors tones.
love this style of subject
thanks for sharing it

you've done something here that I always try to avoid, thats photographing a scene thats in full light and in full darkness.
but it came out pretty nice didn't it :)
the tiles on the ground in the fg are an attractive addition.
good lines and perspectives too.

I welcome these photos from Melbourne at any time!
living here in Vancouver, we don't really get to see much of Melbourne - as you may have guessed Sydney gets most of the attention over here.
I recognize the building in the bg, the mustard yellow colored one with the green dome. Seems to find its way into many Melbourne shots :)
you're scene has a true relaxed feel to it.
clear and sharp presentation.
