    Hello Howard:

    A very nice shot. I do not remember having seen these clouds ever. Just by the image it cannot be said how big or small they are. What lens did you use to photograph them? It seems that some wind was blowing up there.
    regards

    Hello:
    A good composed picture. Probably darkening the sky (polarizer filter) would increase the contrast with the cloud and with the ground, because yellow and blue do a very nice contrast effect. 40°C is too much, but maybe with enough water in is not a problem for corn, which is a crop well adapted to humankind.
    Greetings

    Hi Isabelly:

    This is the picture I like most from the three. I never thought these trees were good photographic subjects. Here you have managed to show the hard contrast of the leave-less tree against a bright sky. You have achieved a sort of moving effect from this viewing point.
    Best Regards.

    Hello Jan:
    This is such a difficult picture to make. Normally shooting lightning storms when the sky is still slightly lit, rapidly overexposes the blue sky. So I would guess, your timing was clue in shooting this picture. Was this your only attempt? Did you get wet?
    Greetings.

    Se agradece mucho cuando alguien muestra una perspectiva diferente de un lugar indudablemente fotogénico como es el valenciano conjunto arquitectónico de Calatrava. Además la luz tibia da calidez al blanco característico del lugar. Muy buen ojo. Besote.

    Las fotos pueden dar un testimonio documental, pero tamién resultar evocativas, y sin duda esta tiene para mi el segundo efecto. Parece un paisaje de leyenda. La Profundidad de campo es excelente. Muy bonita.

    Hello Dario:
    What a view in Sevilla. I never imagined that it is possible to have such heavy clouds in a place with a well-known dry weather. I have just found your picture browsing for more photos of Sevilla, after I uploaded mine. The river seems to be green all year round.

    Hello Daniel:
    Why crop your picture too much with that white frame? I think it would be better without it, and you could use all the 800 pixels fully.
    I remember this place, with all its boats and yachts. Here you cought the traffic in the port nicely. Where you aboard a boat when you shot the picture?
    Have a nice day. Jürgen

    Hello Elzbieta:
    A very good POV and, by the way, very good use of DOF. I think these flowers are more present in the fields in Spring and Summer than in Autum, and the date when you took the picture explains it very good. Is that wheat to the left of the picture? I think I can even spot an insect on those seeds.

    Hola Angel:
    Recuerdo muy bien la corredera. Dos veces estuve allí a también almorcé las dos veces en diferentes restaurantes de allí adentro cerca a este arco, si es que es la entrada que recuerdo y no me estoy confundiendo. No sé si serán los mejores de Córdoba pero no estaban mal por el precio para alguien que va de turismo. ¿De verdad vive gente allí arriba? La zona parecía un poco peligrosa, sobretodo más allá de la plaza. Alguna gente extraña vi por allí.
    Me parece que los colores están un poquito más saturados en esta imagen que el color real del arco, sobretodo el rojo/naranja, pero puede deberse a la cámara que usaste, ya que cada una tiene su manera de registrar los colores.
    Saludos. Jürgen

    Hi Craig:
    I think this is a very simple picture, however, it transmits the message you want to give in the title. Here in Germany we also experience the 4 seasons. And right now the colours of the trees are much like those in the pictures --of course, only in the remaining hanging leaves, because most of them have fallen already.
    A very well chosen perspective.
    Regards.

    Hello Delphine:
    This makes me remember the Iguazú Waterfalls, although they have another height scale. However, in Iguazú I never saw anybody taking a bath, as seen here. Is the water in this river hat in summer?
    Regarding your comment in my past picture, I may say that the photo exposure time is not what determines the lightning's wideness and brightness in the picture, and that is because the thunderbolt has such a short lifespan, that it can't be really controlled how it will be finally seen in the resulting picture. Compare this with the same picture (same settings) without the lightning here.
    Best Regards.

    This photo reminds me of one I took ca. 4 years before yours. You can see it here. I also used a long exposure, however not as long as the one you used here. Certainly this is not the usual postcard of Lima, but could be used for tourist purposes, maybe.
    Another feature of the weather in Lima, apart from the temperature limits you mention, is that it never rains. That explains why the cliffs here are all sand-colour --no plants, almost.

    A very blue picture. Have you done some post-processing on it to enhance the tinge? The yellow lights stand out nicely and break the monotony of the colour.
    Good composition.

    The Uro's islands are a very interesting place to visit, and the blue sky is present everywhere in the Titikaka. That will help having very bright colours in the pictures, like those you got here.
