    Hi Luis
    another striking architectural photo you show us here.
    what stands out for me first, is how the scene has a 3D like visual effect. two towers/domes, but set apart, creating excellent depth perception. and i love how the main large dome is perfectly placed at the 1/3 location. nice to have that splash of blue to contrast the rest. nice work
    cheers

    Hi Claude
    for some reason I enjoy these shots where there is one person on each far side of the frame....even if one of them is a poster and not real :)

    it creates a false sense that the frame is wider than it really is. I enjoy that. cheers

    Hi Christiane
    I didn't get to view this in person when I was in Portugal, and thats too bad.

    you offer up a breath taking view, and to make it even better are the dark clouds hovering above to give it more power. lovely colours and sharpness all around

    Hi Jorge
    this is for sure one of my regrets...not stopping to capture this photogenic bridge. you couldn't have asked for a better set of conditions, the red contrasting the blues, and the large expansive cloud formations. beautiful views

    Hi Silvio
    a classic view, it never gets old does it? I too have this in my gallery, glad to see you captured it as well.

    the timing was perfect as the light is striking the exterior, its very clear and crisp, nothing to complain about here :)

    hmmm...we don't see this very often now do we. Great to see a sweet subject like this. and the lighting on it makes it stand out even more so, its begging for attention and it has obtained mine :)

    Hi Costantino
    i'm always up for a water reflection photo :)
    more please haha

    you have excellent extension on the right, and very little wiggle in the water which allows the viewer to clearly make out the subjects. its a fun shot, a fun visual. cheers

    Hi Paul
    to answer your drone question first...
    do i feel disillusioned about not seeing the 'drone' view with my own eyes for real...i think I do hahaha...i see it on my phone when i'm controlling the drone :) my phone is hooked up to the controller which is linked to the drone by wifi.

    but seriously...It doesn't bother me at all, i love my drone, it offers views I usually do not see. and yes, I still climb church towers, stairs, monuments, all of them. I love that too. I visied 8 cities in Croatia and I climbed a tower in all of them by foot - the ones that had a tower.

    In Pula, where I took that photo, there was no tower available, at least I didn't see any.

    There will be more drone photos coming as well.

    as for your shot here, its great to see the reflection in the water, thats completely unexpected and a real visual treat. looking forward to your email
    cheers

    Hi Paul
    I'm so glad I timed my 1 month in India with the Holi festival, I had lots of fun that day, so much so that the clothes I was wearing I had to THROW away because they got so full of powder and colours :)

    excellent choice to present this in the tall vertical, it allows for more colours, more bowls, and its great to have the child looking up, thats cute/innocent. No Workshop photos this time? haha

    cheers

    Hi Nicolas
    you captured the scene so well, the light beams striking down on the landscape is A+

    the strong shadowing up in the clouds in very interesting too, creating a unique mood and atmosphere, well done

    Hi Mesut
    I really enjoy this shot, not just the subject content but the overall lighting compared to the fg and bg. and of course we can see the minerettes in the bg landscape as well.
    classic fishing boats, bright overexposed bg is A+

    Hi Murat
    this is like finding a piece of gold in a haystack, what a gem you have shown us here.

    it has a very romantic type of feel to it, very pretty very photogenic. love the colours and overall ambience. smart choice with the angle, showing the path as a lead-in

    Hi Mariusz
    I wasn't expecting to see this from Disney Land. Not very many children here haha

    you captured this one so smartly. first of all, the composition and overall visual here is A+. the tree on the right is a great way to start the shot, and the 'temple' in the bg and the clouds up top cap it off.

    excellent post with top notch clarity

    wow, incredible view here. I wish I could have been here to see this as well. look at the lighting and fine exposure on all the buildings, its A++++

    and to have the mountains and clouds make it that much sweeter. love the way the scene buildings depth from the fg to the bg, smart shot. cheers

    Hi Luciano
    i'm back, and i've missed many of your latest posts...lets start with this one.

    first of all, what caught my attention is the brightness and colours of the scene, it stood out so well, like a lighthouse in the dark :)

    love the colour combinations of blue, orange and green.
    the butterfly is quite small in real life, but he looks HUGE compared to the little fly flying away hahaha, thats a major bonus for your shot.

    well captured, it turned out great.
    cheers

    this shot has a heavenly type of feel to it, its peaceful, has a quite and serene atmosphere. you captured that mood very well. really like the trees in the bg on the right, and the fact you leave the sky OUT of the frame. nice work

    Hi John
    another fine shot from the Market open square. love how it has a somewhat distorted angle, caused by the wide angle I think. lots of texture, mainly due to the stones on the ground, and the shot wraps itself around the entire frame right to left. fine visual, its a feast. cheers
