    Beautiful scenery,
    Only slight burn out in the sky is a little bit distracting.
    The composition and the colors and the scenery is awesome
    Very nicely done!

    Looks like the same trees from your winter scene.
    These two photos would look great next to each other

    Hello Denis

    That is as very funny reaction the sheep have to your photography XD
    Sort of give me the impression that you tried to sneak up on them but their curiosity got you first.

    Nice easy approach to the photo. Balanced colors and for the most parts good focus.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Hello Kari

    Nice straight forward approach to a daily scene.
    Nicely framed and with good composition. Very nice little feature with the white marked walk path leading into the photo and into the plane.

    Light conditions seem to have been quite difficult, but even though the foreground is just ever so slightly underexposed I feel you have solved the technical issues here well.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Hello Gyorgy

    A conventional view indeed. It quite reminds me of and angle and POV that would easily fit a postcard.

    Other than that, a well balanced photo. Soft overall impression that doesn't put particular favor outside that attained through composition. I somehow feel the colors are a little desaturated, but it is not a big issue.

    Thanks for sharing.

    A very nice abstract photo. Your composition makes it looks like and eye.
    The overexposed center works well in contrast to the diffused colors of the rest of the stair.

    Hello Paul

    I find your photo interesting as it shows more of daily life than the typical "I went to Taj Mahal" photos that I believe 90% of tourists would bring back.

    Your photo has a nice candid feel to it and showing what daily life is like in this area.
    A little bit hard on the light as some parts are overexposured, but still not over the top.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Hi again Jimmy

    Now this both an image and a scene I can relate to. Having spent some 3 years as a marine engineer, travelling continuously, and at least twice going through Hartsfield...
    Busy busy busy.
    That is how I remember this place and that is indeed how you have managed to display the place through your photo.

    I am actually quite impressed you have managed to capture the busy nature of the airport into such a "tidy" photo as this.
    Also an excellent DOF, depicting the size and length of this airport.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Hello Mesut

    The pose itself, the entire person and of course the very look and resolution of a scanned slide. This is indeed a powerful photo.
    I find your note interesting and it also makes me sad knowing that great people like this person pass away and thousands of skills get lost.

    Nicely composed photo, his pose both powerful and relaxed.
    Very good and thanks for sharing.

    Hello Pavle

    I am a sucker for perspective photos and a sucker for railroads around the world... so I needed to have a closer look.

    A very nice perspective of the technical workings for a railroad.
    Pleasant composition and a nice POV.
    Overall I find the photo a bit too dark, possibly mostly due to the snow tricking the WB into something else. Could probably do with some boosting of the brightness.
    All in all an interesting photo.

    Hello Craig

    Now this is a different approach to the regular photos I see here on TE. I don't quite see the problem with posting a drone photo, it is still a camera and we do learn something about the world.

    Naturally the high vantage point is something different, but even so I feel you have managed an excellent POV and composition. The diagonal that the road cuts through the photo is the obvious highlight, but not only that but the natural balance between the illuminated top left compared to the dark bottom right is just perfect.

    A very different photo and a very good photo
    Thanks for sharing.

    Hello Ataman

    It is an interesting photo. I find the colors atractive, I do however feel the soft appearance or lack of focus is a bit too disturbing.

    I do however give you credit for the warm colors and the postcard like appearance.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Hello Bernie

    I do love the steampunk style, especially the fact that close to anything will actually be ok. The one problem I have with steampunk is the ideas that just don't make sense...like goggles on top of a top hat... must be really unpractical to remove to put them on your eyes...
    Maybe a tad too much for this guy as I feel there is quite a defined line between "ok" and "too much".


    Still, a good photo representing the style.
    Slightly hard light on some parts of your "model", but I think primarily it is the white parasols in the background that are to take the blame.

    Hello Serge

    Well this is an interesting choice for a photograph.
    The POV works quite well as it leads the view into the distance and defines the length of the tunnel.

    One very interesting aspect of the photo and of the tunnel itself is the lights. It creates a different ambiance than just the grey concrete.

    Slightly blurred/out of focus, but not much.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Hello Ryszard

    A lovely summer scene, just what I need in the middle of winter.

    I find the photo well composed and balanced.
    Sharp details, good colors. I also find the reflection in the wet sand to be a nice finishing touch.

    The old gentleman slightly reminds me of the Johnny Walker logo ;)

    Thanks for sharing.

    Hello Gert
    Thank you for sharing such an action filled shot of the cold we are currently feeling here in the North.

    Both the snowfall and the action of the children playing makes the photo very actionfilled. The only thing really missing is perhaps the odd snowball in the air.

    Slightly blurred due the focus and snow, but not bad at all.

    Hello Ataman

    What a pleasing and relaxing photo to look at!
    It is a fairly simple photo, but well composed to not overload the viewer with impressions.
    Especially the wide range of blue tones makes the photo very pleasing.
    Also the smart little addition of the jetty poking into the photo makes for a break in the water.

    Thanks for sharing this pleasing photo.

    Hello Pierre

    Quite the nice angle you have captured this photo from. Nicely framed, crispy and clear as well.
    Also a nice touch managing to capture the haze from the exhaust. It adds a nice tough of action together with the motionblurred propeller.

    Good information from the note as well. I was wondering what type this was. I have some previous maintenance with the larger Piper Cheyenne and I have been wondering about the various choices of names.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for sharing this wonderful palette of colors. Very soft and pleasing.

    I must also say I am very impressed by the clear reflections of the water, especially the crisp clear reflection of what I would call a very interesting sky.
    A very tranquil and peaceful photo to watch.
