    Hi Abmdsudi,
    I always admire your excellent photographer eye for to catch such a beautiful scenes!
    In this shot, you've caught the wonderful moment of the sun trying to break the huge storm clouds, creating a very special image, where the water seems silver, and the silhouettes of the landscape and of the boats are a few beautiful elements in the composition.
    I like the sharpness, the lighting, and the deepness of your job.
    Kind regards,
    Josep

    Ciao Carlo,
    es una imagen con mucha potencia gráfica y un fuerte impacto visual por el vivo color rojo de esta simpática escultura del "cimbello".
    Bien captada en plano cerrado para conseguir ese efecto y un buen contraste con las líneas horizontales de las escaleras y del fondo.
    Buen trabajo, caro amico.
    Un abbraccio,

    Ciao Luciano,
    la espectacular cúpula del Capitolio en La Habana, está muy bien captada en este buen encuadre desde una estrecha calle, aunque esté sufriendo trabajos de restauración, algo inevitable para un fotógrafo.
    Me gusta cómo has captado el ambiente de la gente en la calle, y todos los detalles de esta vieja arquitectura y su bajo estado de conservación, tan típico en la ciudad vieja.
    El post-procesado que has hecho le da un fuerte carácter a la imagen, y una gran potencia gráfica.
    Buena realización, caro amico.
    Un abbraccio,
    Josep

    Hello Beverley,
    this is a great shot from the Tower Bridge, in a well chosen framing which allows us to enjoy the amazing work of Sir Norman Foster, the Gherkin, standing on a nice sky and surrounded by the city and a few wonderful autumnal colors on the trees.
    A beautiful job.
    I love London, which I visited twice, but I hope to return there next year for a third time.
    Kind regards,
    Josep

    Hi Craig,
    I like this type of shots of NY, and I can't resist temptation to comment your photo.
    You've focused on the people chatting and on the bike in foreground, but we can enjoy the fantastic view of the Lower Manhattan and the Brooklyn Bridge in background, in a sharp image with the beautiful lighting of the city that never sleeps.
    It's a great photo, I love a lot!
    And I Love NY!!
    Kind regards,
    Josep

    Hola querido amigo Luis,
    esta callejuela y su perspectiva crea un bonito marco a la sencilla pero bonita arquitectura de la capilla, pintada en blanco con toques azules.
    La farola es un elemento que destaca por su grafismo y rompe el azul del cielo con mucha eficacia estética, buscaste un perfecto encuadre para conseguir ese efecto visual.
    Y controlaste perfectamente la diferecnica lumínica, equilibrndo una exposición complicada.
    Bello trabajo, amigo mío, realizado con gusto.
    Un abrazo desde Tabarnia para todos
    Pili y Josep

    Hi Dale
    great to see these posts from you once again.
    here we have another classic weather pattern rolling in haha
    look at that landscape, isn't it a beauty! Not sure if people who live in the tropics would love it, but I certainly appreciate this type of natural beauty. great that you added in the home on the bottom right as well. sweet!

    Hi Lidia
    we don't see many photos like this on TE, its a welcome sight.
    its great that you took the photo with the people climbing, it makes the scene so much better.

    really like the overall presentation with the blue sky in the bg for contrast, it looks great. cheers

    wow, thats quite the door indeed. A lot of craftsmanship went into creating this. It would be interesting to see the home or building as a whole as well, just to see how it sits.

    Hi malgo
    thanks for the larger size format, I always click on those.
    I guess this guy is hunting on his own, I wonder how his life continued...i'm sure he's past away now, as its been almost 10 years later. its interesting to see the dead trees and the rugged landscape, quite unforgiving i suppose. a different photo for TE. cheers

    Hi Lars
    I don't know about you, but for me I see these landscapes all the time, pretty much EVERYDAY!

    living here on the west coast of canada, these scenes are just a few minutes drive of any city. I guess we take it for granted don't we. its a beautiful scene, having 3 distinct horizontal layers. the larger format version has splendid clarity. cheers

    Hi Carlo
    I like this scene because its not the typical scene of beauty from Italy that we often get here on TE.

    a little bit of ruggedness and grit. fun and different from Pisa, we'd never know its Pisa if you didn't tell us

    Hi Stephen
    great looking vertical shot you have here my friend.
    that blue tiled wall really is a strong subject, as is the wet cobbled stone on the ground. I also like how the long street is offset to the right a bit, thats clever and works so well.
    fine shot

    ahhh...THAT's where I left my pants! finally!
    haha

    the WS photos could easily be main posts as well, i appreciate them alot. its interesting to see the construction site like that. here, the main focus for me are the brown baskets, its funny how much of a strong visual statement they make.

    but yes, the words on the wall, and the activity are important too,

    Nice to see how Portugal has improved it self over time

    I think the sheep need to be in a better formed circle, whats wrong with them, don't they know better hahahaha...poor little sheep!

    Maybe they huddle together like this for warmth? Its funny to see the ones eating in the bg. and looking at the FAR bg, there seems to be alot of snow everywhere. fun shot

    I still don't know how sheep tell each other apart haha

    yes, the perfect subject content for the day.
    and even better, the fact they're wearing red.
    as Gert mentioned its a peeping tom kinda shot - but thats ok, as sure as photographers we have all done this haha

    the WS photo of the child going up the stairs is a beauty, love that one - how could it NOT put a smile on your face.

    this photo has a look of a painting, its very attractive.
    I like how the two main visual focal points are offset, the tree on the lower left, the home upper right. The hills and patterns on the ground are great subjects too. fine shot
