Is it really Pisa? This canal is very narrow but how charming! Delightful reflections and colours. Interesting plants, on the left it is probably fig-tree but I do not know the tree on the right side. Lovely composition.

Hello Craig, from the three pictures I like this one the least. In fact, I find the composition not so interesting, with too much green trees and the view of the buildings cut. The picture with wider view is quite nice in spite of the dull sky.

I remember seeing some very similar scenery on Lake Hume in northern Victoria. It was a while ago now, but the slightly eerie scene has stuck in my mind, and your beautiful photograph reminds me of it. Of course the two lakes aren't far apart, and I believe were both formed by damming the Murray river. Good work!

It may sound a trifle naive, but this reminds me so much of the upper reaches of the river Thames. I guess one effect of Trek Earth is to make the planet smaller by making us realise a lot of shared experience. Beautiful monochrome treatment, although maybe the sky could have done with a bit more definition.

One out of ten isn't a bad record I reckon. This one certainly works a treat. I love the successful combination of near-perfect sharpness on the hikers and the strong blur on the rest: actually easier to achieve with a fast-moving subject like a car... BTW next time you're in Manchester, let me know. Michael (my son, you met him last time) now works in the Salut Wine Bar in the city centre. I think you'd like it!

now this is very charming and photogenic! probably one of my favorite photos i've seen today on TE.
the overall composition and the layout of the buildings and combine that with all the trees in the city really do make it quite beautiful.
lovely scenery all around and the lighting is excellent to make it all come together.

so were you visiting Greece and you didn't tell us? haha
easy to see why the colors attracted you to this one, it would have done the same for me.
and hey, if you're the first to post from here thats even better, and we all know how much you enjoy being the first to post from a city :)
this may not be modern, but I still like it.
macjake (67814) 2016-07-29 7:38
I clearly missed out on this staircase when I was in Paris.
thats too bad because it seems to be quite photogenic.
the only thing missing is a lady wearing a red jacket or red dress walking up it haha :)
still though, there are lots of colors to attract us to it, i really like this because it also has a gritty feel.
macjake (67814) 2016-07-29 7:32
I have to say, I admire these guys and gals who can sit outside in public and not even seem bothered by all the surrounding noise and people. They seem to be in their own little world and have such concentration.
your photo has a glow and shine to it that makes it even better, the lighting is fantastic.
peaceful and quite scene, i like it
macjake (67814) 2016-07-29 7:24
as I often say, nothing is better than a lady in red :)
and when you have hat in an area like this with no other real color splashes, it really does make a strong visual impact.
without the lady in red, the shot just wouldn't be the same.
macjake (67814) 2016-07-29 7:14
I've noticed that only men, no women have commented on your photo! haha :)
yes, this is indeed a male type of scene isn't it, and thats ok. Makes me want to visit some car shows here locally.
love the car, its a beast. they don't quite make them like this anymore, today's cars, even the muscle cars are just too refined. sweet shot
macjake (67814) 2016-07-29 7:11
while I was reading your note, Human Sacrifice is what came to mind haha
the only thing missing from this photo is scale and perspective...how large or small is it? just curious.
amazing how well it was made and its so well preserved, outstanding sharpness and clarity in the photo too.
excellent subject for TE, something off the beaten track.
macjake (67814) 2016-07-29 7:05
we get to see the intensity of the woman, and the power of the horse up close.
the lighting is spot on perfect too, lots of warm colors and tones. a great photo thats different from the rest in your gallery

Ciao Caro Carlo,
These flowers seem quite frequent in Italy and what a colourful, interesting f/g they make, setting the scene for the land which separates the f/g from the buildings. They make a contrast colour wise, texturally and in their arrangement as well as creating a sense of depth.
The dof is good and the colours pleasingly natural.
My warm regards,
