    Hi Craig
    Beautiful photo and a wonderful interior with so many eye-catching details. It's a bit inconvenient having to look at it on a phone screen but, hopefully, when I get back home, I'll be able to have a second look. Lovely colours and I like the way you cropped it too.
    I'm of course not surprised Gert prefers the version with people. 😁 I like them both and I think it's good to have an opportunity to have places like that to oneself. Like you, I hate organised tours but sometimes one has no choice. I've been to places I wouldn't have been able to reach without a group. There are whole countries you can only visit with organised tours. Of course my favourite tours were the ones where I was a "group" of one, like my trips to Bhutan, North Korea and Afghanistan. But I have visited a few other places with real groups, like a safari in Tanzania.
    Great work, keep them coming.

    Hi Paul
    Another wonderful photo full of arches. I like the "frame within a frame" effect. This time more brick-red than green and that's also nice.
    The 2 WS photos create a pleasing series with the main one.

    Lots of green is lovely, but not always good. Yellow and red roofs are much better than green and brown. 😉
    Seriously though, I love this view, one of the best dzong views of Bhutan.
    Have a nice evening

    Well captured portrait showing the lady wearing traditional clothes and jewellery. You shouldn't complain - strong sunshine is the fact of life in Bhutan and the traditional architecture in the background creates a sense of place. Isn't it incredible that almost all architecture in Bhutan is traditional?

    Hi Gert
    It's a delightful photo that brings back so many of my memories from Bhutan. The white stupas create a diagonal line and a sense of perspective thus pointing at the mountain peaks in the distance. I also like the house with the stone-covered roof. I remember those very well.
    Glad to see you are scanning these photos again. They deserve it!

    Hi Paul
    It's a beautiful photo (even without the inconsiderately fast walking man). I like the combination of red bricks and all the greenery but the best thing is the composition with the arches disappearing in the distance.
    Good crop and I think the other WS could also be the main post (another main post, not instead of this one, which is very much my favourite).

    It may be a bit unusual, but you made up for it by uploading two photos full of people to WS. ;-)
    But the main one is my favourite as, like you you, I think the colours are very beautiful - delicate greens on the contrasting canvas of deep orange. The intricate patterns of tree branches also add to the artistic feel.
    Have a nice day

    In both photos containing people it looks as if the same girl was particularly active in the game. But of course it must be a coincident. The image with no people in is a good idea to make it a series. Your windows are a very good viewpoint! I do remember the other 2 uploads even without looking.

    Hi Gert
    I like the idea. It must be exciting to know that when a hoarding appears in a public place it may a few days later get embellished with a picture of a deer. When you look closely at the graffiti you will appreciate what a masterpiece it is. Apart from the more complicated nose and eyes, it is just lines but very well placed in relation to one another.
    The lady with a phone is a very good addition and the blue and yellow poster a date stamp on the photo.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Craig
    Firstly, it's so nice to see you active on the site again! We all have to leave it sometimes when time is at a premium but it's great when people keep coming back. It's also good to see you have photos to post even though, maybe, you are not travelling as much as you used to.
    I think it's a great subject and it stands out well on the background of "50 shades of blue". Well worth sleeping in the car to capture this (I've also done that many times; some of my favourite shots are those taken after/before sleeping in a car).
    So here is me, looking after an elderly parent and not having much time to post to TE or write critiques, never mind to travel. But it's brilliant we all get to keep in touch from time to time.

    Hi Gert
    There are so many places in Stockholm with breathtaking panoramic views. In London, except by the Thames and from top of skyscrapers I can only think of very few of those like Richmond Hill or Parliament Hill. You have shown us another photo in WS recently and of course I remember my own walks in your beautiful city.
    Here, apart from the view and wonderful light we also can see a well captured foreground made of people. Well taken group photo and the lady in red on the right is a bonus.

    The visual illusion of the man standing above the tower is quite amusing. I also really like how the church is framed by the crane and the vivid colours: blue, red and yellow.

    It's a very beautiful photo. The charming houses in the spotlight, the contrast between the sunbathed facades and the bluish remains of winter, the colourful reflections and the lady with a pram is a perfect additions.
    I like how the WS photos show what one would see looking in other directions.

    Hi Gert
    We sometimes joke that Swedish is similar to Polish, as you can create words by adding ska to e.g. a Latin or English noun, just like we crate female surnames. ;-) It's nice to see that "Nostalgiska" attracted someone's attention and to see a person just spending a bit of time on something just for pleasure. Not practical, not money earning, not day-to-day duties. You timed the photo well to capture his interest in what he is seeing.
    I like the matching yellow and red colours all over the image.
    Greetings from the airport awaiting a verdict on a broken-down plane that was supposed to take me home. :-(
