    Mornin' BeeDee,

    You're out of control good sir, your notes make me, as the kids say, "lol" :)

    If I was getting paid handsomely for my pictures, I surely wouldn't be pissing & moaning about going to work every day...in fact, I'd quite enjoy it!

    What an incredibly bright and vibrant image you've turned out here, this looks extremely inviting...although my allergies might have something to say on the contrary. Solid perspective as always, and your knack for capturing such amazing light is well documented. I have to assume this particular position is the southeast you mentioned, the backless facade of the house caught my eye right away.

    Looks like they do a terrific job with maintenance, the grounds are well manicured and made for photography...and that rich blue sky is the perfect backdrop. Great place for a chocolate Easter egg hunt...unlike the Valley of the Sun, they won't melt before being found. :) Have a good one. Take it easy.

    Cheers from Feenix,

    JayCee

    Glad you enjoyed the new profile pic, it's not the shampoo...just too much free time with the Photoshop program. ha

    Hi Maria
    A majestic view of the rugged valley giving us the taste of height and scale at the same time with section of the spanning bridge attracts the eyes together with other brightly lit interests. I feel the brilliant lush green sets off and soothes the whole scene so pleasantly a shot also depicts the land formation catching the magnificence of the steep ridge, and the immense textures throughout. I love the touches of vivid colours there helping to direct focus of attention into the whole scene, You did your best from this viewpoint worthy of a few shot. Fine works, Congrats
    Best regards

    Hi Noel,

    So, what gives...you had to travel to another country for a cloudy sky?? ;)

    What can I say say, you were wise to take this trip with camera in tow, the high rise glass and steel has no longer eluded your lens. As Craig mentioned, I get the sensation you were giddy as a school boy having the chance to photograph something this desirable. With the nicest intention in mind...I hope you strained your neck taking these pictures. lol

    A great way to kick it off with these two imposing structures...and an imagined third within the reflections. They stand tall and proud, and have been put on grand display with this solid composition. Evident that your passion for this subject shines through...even if the sun didn't. Clear, precise and a treat to see from your point of view. Much appreciation for the dedication my friend, I'm happy that you had this opportunity. Would NYC, HK, or Dubai be sensory overload now? :) Can't wait to see what's next. Have a good one. Take it easy.

    Cheers from the Stars & Stripes,

    Jason

    Hi Noel
    You really are getting some mileage out of that ultra modern highrise glass buildings despite the weather condition. It's dynamic, decently coloured with excellent contrast which exaggerate the proportions seen from this viewpoint. Depth and perspective are accentuated by the verticals lending to delightful photo impact with vertigo effect. Excellent urban shot. Congrats

    Hi Eleni. To build such a house on such a spot requires wealth and political connections I would say. I am speaking from my knowledge of what happens in Dalmatia where rogues can do what they like. Maybe Greece is different. Whoever lives there has built paradise on earth. Happy Easter to you as well. Regards. Klaudio.

    Salut Hervé. Je trouve cette photo un peu sombre et beau en même temps. Il reflète la triste histoire des naufrages et des conditions difficiles de la région côtière. Dans le même temps, la lumière et les teintes naturelles font une image raffinée. Le ciel sombre sur la terre ensoleillée augmente à l'ambiance mixte de tristesse et d'espoir. Meilleurs voeux.

    Hi Olivier. I remember the impressive "walls" and also the meal we had in the restaurant (in the hotel in your photo.) It is a very good photo, not for the claustrophobic and shows the might of the river long ago to have carved a passage through solid rock. Regards. Klaudio.

    Hello Ann,
    A delightful view from this city with an attractive waterfront, with beautiful rich colours. This row of warehouses is eyecatching and captured with good détails. Excellent choice of the vertical format to emphasize the height of the buildings and create a nice balance with the lovely reflections in the rippled water. The FG red buoys are a nice add-on to this beautiful cityscape, the icing on the cake I should say. Perfect !
    Kind regards,
    Christian

    Bonjour Christiane,
    Magnifique paysage où la rouille se mêle de façon très harmonieuse aux tonalités de la végétation. La composition sublime ainsi que la lumière de fin de journée mettent bien en valeur tous les éléments de la nature. J'aime bien aussi le petit îlot isolé qui se détache sur le fond bleu de l'eau et constitue un point d'accroche sur le lac. Le point de vue, le cadrage bien étudié, la lumière chaude, la netteté, tout me paraît impeccable. Quant aux couleurs, elles sont pures et superbes. C'est très beau.
    Amicalement,
    Christian

    Hello Kasia,
    I like the well chosen title and your imaginative idea for this shot. You couldn't find a better comparison, and it's interesting to see how the trunk is shaped to resemble a crocodile. The light brings out the textures and details brilliantly, and the rippleless mirror-like pond makes for stunning reflections. Very well spotted and nicely executed.
    Kind regards,
    Christian

    Hej Boa,

    Vilket fantastiskt ljus. Här klarar man sig inte utan solglasögon. Men för fotografering fungerar det uppenbart bra. Skärpa och detaljrikedom kan inte bli bättre. Väldigt färgstarkt foto med klara röda, gula gröna och blåa färger. Trots detta ser de helt narturliga ut. Ha en bra skärtorsdagskväll och glad påsk!

    Hälsningar


    Ulf
