    Hi Ike,
    charming structure. I am surprised that nobody takes care about it.
    Is it in all modern societies that the temples of all sorts are getting emptier?
    I don't think it is wrong but it is affecting the old temples since nobody wants to pay for their restoration.
    Well spotted!

    Wonderful bird photography!

    Hola Angel,
    beautiful street corner. Well captured old stylish architecture and the road seems to lead our eyes to some other interesting structures further in the distance.
    It feels quiet and relaxing. We see also people relaxing at a restaurant. Nice place for a lunch break after having a long walk among the narrow streets....
    Excellent work,

    Hola Luis,
    interesting that there is some deep shade in the frame but everything what you need is in perfect sunlight. You had a great luck for weather there. Also the flowers add a nice and colorful touch in the foreground.
    Lovely postcard style photograph. Exactly as I like it!
    Interesting note as well.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Jorge,
    typical British weather here :(
    But it didn't stop you from taking a great picture. I am still shocked by how much you managed to see during your trip and so many completely unknown to me places like this beautiful town.
    Great reportage,

    Hi Mesut,
    wow this cafe certainly has a breath taking view! I love cafes with a view, you can rest after having a 5 hour walk and keep admiring the view and even take photos.
    Challenging light here but great final effect. The view is jaw dropping and people add a lovely touch in the foreground,
    Excellent work,

    Hola Sergio,
    spectacular architecture. It is one of the most photogenic spots in Vienna. I have to visit it again because I have no photos from my visit to this beautiful city.
    The light was brilliant, so vivid that the reflection is clear and colorful, some water caused distortion adds an artistic touch as if painter brush touches,
    Excellent work,

    Hola Sergio,
    amazing facade! Great composition here with the main focus on this entrance. It seems overwhelming.
    I think I have seen it before on photos -it has quite unique design.

    Hi John,
    this was my favourite beach near LA! We were coming there a lot! The only problem was the parking...
    In fact I have a photo of my wife on this beach with one of the rocks, I printed it as a 50x75cm poster and it hangs above my bed.
    Sadly I lived in California in the pre-digital times, and my camera and lenses were quite cheap. I have always struggled with the number of photos. I have still with me 18 thick photo albums of prints from that time but most of them are not good enough to show.
    The photos which I did show on TE are from the visits later.
    Beautiful capture here. The walking couple adds a romantic touch. The man is clearly a local from So-Cal: wearing T-shirt, shorts and flip flops. Down there we can admire the spectacular rock formations.

    You are so lucky as far as your location is concerned. I would love to send me in time at least this camera and lenses which I have now and be able to visit all these amazing places again.

    Everything worth of photographing is in California -said a famous photographer.

    This view is quite sentimental to me.
    Thank you for sharing it!

    Hi John,
    I love it!
    The same and yet so different.
    That is why it is ok to copy the concepts because it is impossible to "enter the same river twice". We are traveling here in space and in time.

    You have clearly perfected the composition. Your curve of the stairs is more sigmoidal. It is for me the highlight of your composition. I didn't have my wide angle lens there yet. You have also better placed the lamps, I have truncated one of them which was not optimal.

    Your photo has a completely different mood. I like the light which I had a bit more. Although I did use pseudo HDR processing to enhance the effect. Did you use a tobacco filter? It has a feeling like that a bit, or is it just the effect of the clouds?

    We both have clouds which is quite rare in Santa Monica but different type.

    I will see if I can process you photo differently.

    Most importantly: Thank you so much for your kind words.
    I had various periods in my photographic life: at the moment it is something very important for me but I have no time to take really good photos. Now I am more focused on sharing places, documenting Sunday family walks.
    Thank you very much!

    Hi Serghei,
    Nice to see some activity in your gallery again.
    I am not too active my self or not as much as I would like to.
    Life is busy. I don't have too much time for myself nowadays.
    This is a brilliant view. I have a similar one in my gallery too but you cared about adding a lovely framing using elements of the famous bridge. Great place to visit.
    Great reportage,

    Hi Ike,
    quite a change from usual planes as a mean of transport :)
    Nice capture with the bikers so crispy sharp here and a lovely setting near the town.
    It is quite a common sight in North East England as well a bit annoying for drivers sinceit is so hard to go around on a highway.
    Great reportage,

    Hi Craig,
    wow I didn't even know that you can get there. I really have to get there again anyway since the yellowish square was under construction and may be even this arch was covered in construction now when I think about it...
    Amazing view. Brilliant! with the patterns again and with the people and in great light and so suitable here symmetry.
    I love it!!

    Hi Costantino,
    I think I recognize this church on top of the hill already!
    Great composition with the tall tower in the left near the frame. The tower makes a nice foreground while further we see the sea of the white houses and finally the church on top of it.
    Brilliant view, very well captured!

    Bonjour Christiane,
    I see you decided to share pics from a walk in your home town. This is a very good thing. In fact I intend to do more walking with my camera in the city where I live now. It is not the safest place to be after dark so I hesitated till now but I think I will plan some walks nevertheless may be not for the blue hour but i think the town has some interesting spots to show to the world.
    Here a lovely composition with old and modern, serious and funny in one frame.
    Great geometry as well.
    Very well seen and captured,

    very well used reflection here. The light was brilliant what made the reflection so vivid and colorful. We do have a feeling of disorientation at first which is an attribute of great compositions.

    wow this is so beautiful! Such a simple theme and yet perfectly executed! The path in the right side complements the motif of the sun rays very well.

    Bonjour Philippe,
    I suppose it is a typical barbecue food in France but quite surprising and unexpected to see the snails on a barbecue frame for me. I think I would stay hungry at this party :)

    Ciao Luciano,
    great reportage. Very strong message. Although very frequently visited -not that popular on TE.
    I am glad to watch your photos. I have been there a couple of times but such a long time ago.
    I hope you had also some more positive elements in your trip to Poland.

    Hi Gert,
    nowadays scientific literature which is in a book is usually quite outdated. Everything happens so fast.
    This young lady does not look like a stereotypical scientist. At least she wears glasses :)
    Quite a photogenic to have so many books in a frame. Books except providing wisdom introduce also some textures and colors and make almost as good decoration as spices in exotic markets.
    Beautiful girl makes certainly a great impact here.
    Excellent capture,
