I drove on the Avenue of the Giants in 2010. It's one of my favorite places in the United States. Your photo captures the majestee of the great redwood trees, and the tranquility of the forest. One thing that a photo can't capture is the wonderful smell of this forest. Thanks for sharing. You made my day.

This is a very nice scene of the hotels and condos that lie around PV. I've been there a few times.
One thing you should change in the information about the location is that Puerto Vallarta is not in the state of Mexico. That state is landlocked in the interior. PV is located in the state of Jalisco, on the Pacific Coast.

Das ist doch ein äußerst schöner Sonnenuntergang -- schwarz und Kupperfarbe.

Du schreibst, daß Du TE verläßt, aber Du hast doch über meine Photo kommentiert. Ich freue mich, daß Du noch (oder wieder) hier bist.

Guten Tag, Ike,
I recognized this scene immediately, since I crossed this bridge several times when I visited Würzburg a number of years ago. I'm a sucker for a good photo with one-point perspective, and the street lines are a fine example of that. There are many other interesting lines here, also: verticals in the towers, horizontals in the roof eaves, and diagonals in the roof slopes, and converging perspective lines. Then, it all comes alive with the crowd of people and the dog.

Sehr guten Tag, Ray.
Rothenburg is one of my favorite cities in Germany. They keep its historical beauty very well tended, indeed. Your photo of this square demonstrates this nicely. It is appropriately on the "Romantic Road", one of the most pleasant scenic drives in all of Germany. Danke für dieses schöne Bild.

I'm a fan of old ruins, whether they are from centuries or milennia ago. This one is magnificent, and you've captured the soul of the site. I've been in New Mexico several times, but have never seen this mission. You make me want to go back to that beautiful state. Congrats and TFS.

I like cavern pictures, and this is a good one, with impressive stalagtites, and some mighty 'mites. I've not been to Carlsbad Caverns, but this photo makes me want to go there.
I do have one thing to correct in the data supplied for the photo, though. You have it located in California, but it's really in New Mexico. There is a city named Carlsbad in California, a little north of San Diego, but the famous underground world is in southeastern New Mexico.
Congratulations on a fine photo.

I am always a big fan of one-point perspective in artwork, and this is an excellent example of that. It's good that you included a human figure in the scene to give a sense of distance and reality to it. Excellent job, mon ami.
