You have composed this photo very well by including the large statue and some people that animate the scene. Especially I like the hugging couple to the right. The photo gives us a good idea of the Cloth hall but puts the people in the foreground, which I appreciate.

A fine picture, as always, with a beautiful warm light shining on the elderly men who look quite comfortable leaning on the mud wall. The camels and the very simple huts - looking rather African - form an interesting and exotic background. These men look quite content with what they have (and I wouldn't be surprised to learn that each one has bought himself a mobile phone).

Hee, hee, I hope you weren't thinking of me when you wrote your title - mine are well tucked in, thank you very much. :-)
Geez, these guys certainly knew how to build - I can't imagine many modern buildings lasting over eight centuries, never mind withstanding an onslaught by cannon fire.
The light here is magnificent and lights up this wonderful cathedral beautifully against the dark sky with its puffy white clouds as well as bringing out all the lovely colours and textures in the ancient stonework.
Gorgeous light and colours and, as always, stunning details and sharpness.
P.S. Could the cannon ball be between the two largest windows - I think I see what looks like a rusty mark running down from it?

Now this is a refreshing view in the heat of summer. I like the footprints in the snow, meandering, and heading down the hill. Very good light management, considering the pristine white of the snow and the dark pines in the background.

A fascinating note informs a first rate photo. It is the impressive depth of field that is also noteworthy, with the droplets of water in the crashing waves as sharp as the nearby Bass Rock. I tried to guess the season you shot this photo, but could not tell that it was in the freezing days of winter.

This is an interesting portrait and much more. The photo owes its quality to a great extent to the many souvenirs surrounding Allan. He has created a kind of museum in his office. I don't agree with him that anyone should need a permission to take a photo of a building in a public area, but if you had argued with him you would not have had a chance to take this nice photo.

The veil of smoke puts a veil of mystery in the photo. I can smell the aroma of the food... although I prefer the corn on the cob, then the pickles, and finally the eggs here. The white doughy food lightly covered with mesh... what is it? Very interesting note,

This is an interesting composition where you have used the architectural elements and reflections to create a very dynamic and attractive pattern with superb details. Very well done.

As the young Vikings row their boat, existence of large tires reminds me of the shields that the old Vikings used to line their longboats. Reflections of the colorful boat in the water is very effective.
Warm regards, Nicolas,

Should you have waited longer for the field trip to pass by? Absolutely not! The children make this photo. I don't know Bardejov, but it's a town I would be interested in seeing, thanks to this post.
