wicked shot my friend!
I really like using the windows at the top as an anchor, bending around the entire top portions.
let me ask you something...when taking this photo can you place your camera on the ledge? or is it the normal hand held. Just wondering because if you can place it on the ledge it would be easier for getting 3 different exposures.
cool shot all around, love it

A gateway to a different dimension! hmmm...I'll take that ride any day, just have to make sure I bring my Camera!
first thing that comes to mind when looking at this photo is the exposure, its spot on. And i like the different colors that come across horizontally from the bottom to the top.

I remember viewing this photo yesterday and I wanted to get back to it today.
talk about power and presence!
it really packs a punch.
we don't have such architecture here in Canada, so this interests me greatly.
wonderful position in the frame, especially on the slight angle.

there seems to be something interesting to view in basically all parts of the scene.
lots of blues, and pale blues, but the star of the scene must be the people in the fg.
the splashes of color really make their presence felt.
beautiful view and photo all around

sunset on the lake...doesn't get much better than that.
looking at the photo more closely, its awesome how the trees in the distance show their reflections and the branches are so well seen in the light. very sweet indeed.

now thats different!
guess it brings back alot of memories doesn't it.
reminds me of being in Disney World many years ago.
its a blast from the past, but its also modern and applicable to todays time.
macjake (49296) 2014-04-17 9:54
I have to say, i hate taking these types of photos.
Getting the correct exposure and lighting is so hard.
So basically I just avoid these scenes.
but good on ya to make it come out looking as great as it does - not sure how you did that.
In its prime the view from this Castle must have been amazing. Cool shot.

This is an excellent daily life shot showing this man concentrating on his work. During my trip to India I noticed how resourceful people were and how the small shops served the community so well. The picture is very clear and the detail fascinating.
Very well done.
Kind Regards, Ann

The very beautiful light has enhanced the colours very well. Excellent clarity and a simple but excellent composition. I think that it is the small island in the FG that makes this work so well.
Kind Regards, Ann

I know everyone will comment on that sky, and I guess I'm no different.
it looks like the scene is all apart of some Hollywood movie set and there's a huge storm brewing or some alien mother ship is about to come through the clouds.
and of course the tall ship is a wonderful subject, no matter if its on land or in the water.

The light is really lovely and picks out the pastel colours of the walls and the rich brown of the pews. Your steady hand was useful once again with perfect sharpness at 1/13 sec. First class exposure and clarity.
Kind Regards, Ann

I can almost feel the excitement in your voice when i read about you walking around the streets with your camera pointed upwards. And yeah, you probably stood out like a sore thumb as a tourist - but who cares right!!!
You do what you gotta do my friend!!!
I guess I don't realize just how vacant Ireland is when it comes to tall sky scrapers. You should go to Chicago or Nyc!
I like how the glass seems to blend in with the sky color as it gets higher and higher. Its fun photographing them right!?
good on ya
macjake (49296) 2014-04-17 9:36
Mykonos...so is this the Island thats famous for partying at night time? if so, its not really for me...not into that anymore - i'd prefer to get my sleep! haha
really enjoy the two boats in the fg, especially the color of the pale blues. and seeing the water reflect up onto the hull of the boats is such a nice addition.
macjake (49296) 2014-04-17 9:34
who needs bright light right! haha
this is great, and we can see the snow falling in the blue areas of the ship.
hard to believe the captain could see very far into the distance, but i suppose thats what the radar is for.
love the darkening of the skyline at the top, was that natural or added after? looks great.
macjake (49296) 2014-04-17 9:30
a photo like this one has to be opened up form the thumbnail gallery to be fully appreciated.
here we can see the textures, the contrasting landscapes and details on the crater itself.
very nice photo from Iceland, well shot
macjake (49296) 2014-04-17 9:26
of course it's great to visit Iconic cities like Paris, but for me this is even better.
a view like this is way up on my list when traveling to France. And who can resist a lighthouse with craggy shorelines.
macjake (49296) 2014-04-17 9:25
this is very sweet indeed.
marina's are one of my all time favorite subjects, and when you can travel to Ireland, get colors like this and more rainbow colors in the bg houses its hard to beat.
wouldn't change a thing - other than me being here too!
macjake (49296) 2014-04-17 9:22
yes, we've seen some of these subjects before in Paul's photos, and I don't mind at all seeing them again.
just goes to show that an overcast sky is just as nice as a sunny bright sky, perhaps even better.
the light and exposure are so attractive. the silver tones really come through nicely.
