This is a fine photograph. The cave is beautifully displayed, with strong but apparently true colours, pin sharp of course. Did you need a tripod, or was the high ISO sufficient for hand-holding? (the EXIF info on shutter speed seems a bit eccentric!) But what really attracts me is the graphic abstract quality of the composition: it could be read just as an excercise in pattern and shape.

beautiful old architecture. The two towers have some similarity in their design. Great capture with fantastic sky. I like to see the playground in the very centre. This is something what would help me in sightseeing as I usually do it now with my little daughter :)

I particularly like the slightly compressed perspective, the effect of using a modest tele zoom. The visual result is to give the feel of a flat, two-dimensional scene, with a graphic, near-abstract look. I like it! The colours too of course are excellent.

Firstly, welcome to TE. This is a very good first posting, and the first of many I hope. I particularly like the slightly compressed perspective, the effect of using a modest tele zoom. The effect of the different planes of colour is to give the feel of a flat, two-dimensional scene, with a strong diagonal and a graphic, near-abstract look. I like it!

Beautifully simple composition here. It's a place I'd love to visit (apart from the price of the beer!) My only criticism is the over-enthusiastic colour saturation, particularly noticeable on the foreground grass.

this woodpecker resembles very much the one I see regularly behind my window. I wonder how does the Syrian woodpecker differs from European one?
I wish I had birds posing for me in such great light and set against such blue sky. Very nice bird photography,

This is quite famous place and yet I did not have a chance to visit. It is quite far from where I live...
Very nice capture here, I did not see it from this angle yet. The wheel adds a nice object to focus on. The weather was fantastic too, not very common in this country I think. Nice white/blue scene with a stretch of brown sand.
Very eye catching, great work!

prawdziwy opad szczeny. Urzekajacy widok. Pewnie nie chcialbym zejsc z tej wiezy. Znakomita architektura i to jeszcze mialas szczescie do wspanialej pogody przy ktorej wszystko wydaje sie bajecznie kolorowe.
Super wygladaja te wzgorza w oddali -z rowniez swietnie nasycona zielenia. Ta wieza jest bardzo charakterystyczna. Zdaje sie ze musze sie tam wybrac przy nastepnej okazji :) Myslalem dotad o Florencji i Pizie ale widze ze i Siene koniecznie warto dolozyc.
O ile pamietam bylas w Avila skad pochodzi sw. Teresa a tutaj w Sienie sw. Katarzyna slynna z powiedzenia ze pieklo wybrukowane jest glowami kaplanow...

wow this is so beautiful! I like very much the vivid well saturated colors. I am a happier person just by looking at this photo. Having some red colored rocks and some green vegetation added to the variety of colors in this attractive coastal scenery.
Great composition too with the dark blue sea framed with the rocky foreground.
I am more and more encouraged to visit Corse after seeing your reportage.

bardzo ciekawe miejsce. Swietny pomysl z tymi szeroko pokazanymi schodami na pierwszym planie. W dodatku masz palme dla dekoracji i przyjemne granatowe niebo. Bardzo ciekawy reportaz -pokazujesz oblicze Chorwacji jakiego nie znalem, choc i tak bylem juz zaciekawiony zeby tam jechac.

great composition with the tree. I like the presence of the lady -it allows to imagine how huge the tree is. I like also the contrast of the tree with the other trees appearing behind.
Very well seen and captured,

Your framing of this photograph is slightly unusual: in a cathedral, we are expected to gaze heavenwards! Yet your lower viewpoint works really well, as it foregrounds that beautiful marble floor. Excellent depth of focus, considering the f/4 aperture.

Generally speaking, sunsets are verging on the cliched on this site. Yet your take on this subject has breathed new life into the genre. By focussing on the foreground grasses and letting the sun remain defocussed you've created an original shot. The low viewpoint gives me an insect's eye view of the scene! You've handled the tricky exposure very well too.

Not a top-knot in sight! Yet I really like this piece of quirky observation. The sandals make an almost abstract repeated pattern across the frame. Shame hardly anyone else can see its quality.

This is a stunning mountainscape. I love the receding lines of blue hills, and the good front to back sharpness. Shame the sky has completely burnt out! Maybe an ND grad may have helped...
