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.

I've been in many parts of Mexico, and have visited numerous pre-Hispanic sites, but Muyil is new to me. this structure is magnificent. You have depicted the setting, size and prominence very well with the upward angle of the photo. I'd like to visit this locale on my next visit to Quintana Roo. Thanks for rsharing with us.

Perfect framing of a beautiful scene. Not only is the boat perfectly centered, you have high contrast between the darkness of the frame and the brightness of the subject. A wonderful photo. Thanks for sharing with us.

Your photo is beautiful. It's very well balanced with interesting lines and magnificent color. It makes me want to go there.
The only thing I have to comment negatively about it is that you have it located in the wrong part of Mexico. San Jose del Cabo is in Southern Baja California, not in the state of Mexico in the Central Highlands. You can edit your posting to correct this.

I am always attracted to photos that have a strong sense of one-point perspective, and your image of this beautiful station is one of the best examples of that concept that I've seen. All the lines, both real and implied lead the the perfectly centered point. Bravo! This is excellence.
Keep shooting like this.

What a magnificent view of the Arch. I've lived near St. Louis most of my life, and have seen the Arch in person and in photos thousands of times, but never from a viewpoint like this. Congratulations on originality! Nice job of burning/dodging to bring our the details of the street/alley.
