    Hello Daniel,
    We show the same city today, byt my photo is a little bit older (as could be expected). This is a "nothing special", but the ordinary back streets of Rome often have such a delightful atmosphere and a lot of architectural beauty, that one could go snapping photos anywhere.
    Regards,

    Hello Malgo,
    Why didn't you see the gallery? It could have been worth a visit. At least the tower looks great and has found a good new purpose. Along with the trees in their best autumn dress and the red tree at the front on such a sunny day, this is an almost shockingly bright photo ;-).
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Stephen,
    The grey sky serves this photo well. It seems to make the colours of the buildings softer and more harmonious and doesn't draw my attention away from the architectural features. I was surprised to read in my diary from 1984 how I reached this place on foot from the railway station, quite a long walk. On the way I admired a Romanesque church and I enjoyed the walk through a forest with a Moorish castle from the 9th or 10th century, but I dismissed the Pena Palace as "19th century kitsch" and didn't bother to go inside, only seeing it from the courtyard!
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hi Mesut
    A fun capture of a highly eye catching wall artwork-graffiti with its bold colours & content really draws the eye to look in depth. Excellent snap, Congrats

    Hello Danos,
    Another fantastic sunset with incredible reflections. The dark patches of land create a fine pattern in the completely calm water of the lagoon. It is a technically perfect photo with no trace of noise even when hugely enlarged.

    Hello Lars,
    Did the driver refuse your request to stop? ;-) It's a good photo anyway, despite the high speed, and I probably wouldn't have noticed the slight blur of the foreground unless you had pointed it out. What else can I say? The mountains are magnificent and seem to feature almost 50 shades of grey. I love the contrast of clear blue sky and the yellow/green ground.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Jean,
    When I hired a taxi to go across Santo Antão I asked the driver now and then to sto so I could take photos. When we reached this place he stopped by himself and told me tourists always take photos here. So I did, and posted it on TE. It's still a magnificent view 12 years later. The sharpness and colours are perfect.

    Gert

    Hello Ryszard,
    I probably would find this kind of garden slightly boring if I was down there, but seeing it from above is a different experience. I have to admire those who arranged and kept it so neatly and with the fine sharpness this photo gives us a good view of the place. The shadow of the castle wall is a nice feature. It tells us more about this place and creates a nice pattern across the corner of the photo.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Carlo,
    It's an empty street but there are so many nice features among the windows, doors and lamps and a strong vertical accent. The owner of the small shop, or maybe it's a café, in the middle has tried to make the entrance look welcoming.

    Hello Daniel,

    Please don't apologise for being away from TE for so long - I was away for almost a year - because TE is time consuming and we all have busy lives too!

    I am pleased that you are now reaping the joys of bird watching. I have only once seen a kingfisher "in the flesh" and have never managed to photograph one - so it's so wonderful that you managed to capture this one! As Luciano says, it's not perfect but it's jolly good and a photograph with which I would certainly be pleased!

    Lovely!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Luis,
    The City Hall is an impressive building, as should be expected, and you found a good angle for the photo where trees form a nice frame to the left and a palm and some bushes are equally well placed on the right side. Lots of people are seen outside and on the steps, maybe indicating that it is a place of public interest, or just a popular gathering point. It's an excellently exposed photo and very nicely balanced.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hi Will
    taken when you were 17, thats pretty cool! I know for a fact I don't have any to share when I was that age. I'm not sure if its the dark shades or the shape of the sails, but it's looking pretty scary, like a Pirate sail boat haha. Looks menacing and angry. all in a good way of course. the grain in the photo makes it look even more historic, it suits the time frame. cheers

    Hi Danos
    sweet shot here. Easy to see why you liked it and wanted to capture it. Interesting that its only 15 feet deep.
    really like the mountain range in the bg to complete the scene. and the horizontal layering is perfect. sweet colours and romantic mood, A+
    cheers
