    Splendid - I was there two months after you and wild flowers were growing which added something extra to the scene; however, I wasn't there for such a good light.

    You have an excellent composition here and your skill shows.

    Hi Samrat,

    Really nice blur here, it makes the photo. The only thing I think would make this photo better is if there were a little more space on the right, in front of the jumper. Great shot nonetheless.

    Very nice. Perfect timing with them both looking too. Just a bit more foreground would have been better.

    Amazing clouds and colours you've captured here. I like how you got the outline of some of the palms on the hill contrasting with the sky. Foreground isn't light enough, but not much you can do about that without using a big ugly flash. Well done.

    Nice technique. Seems surreal. I think the light painting would be better if the object painted was further away, and it was dark all around it. Here, my first thought was: he pointed the headlights from his car at the tree. Contrasted with the blue sky in the background, it makes for a great effect nonetheless.

    I really like the concept and the moving star effect. I think the two big circles of lens flare take away from the photo. They could be avoided with the use of a lens hood (so that moonlight couldn't hit the lens directly) - or taken out in photoshop.

    Great light on this wonderful little place. I never saw a Lidl or a super market in Albania either, but there are plenty in Macedonia and Greece, so perhaps they make there way from there. I met someone living in Albania going to Macedonia just for shopping because the costs of towels/blankes/soap can be up to 1/6 the price apparently. I think she really just wanted an excuse to do a little traveling.

    Welcome to TE! I really like this photo. It tells a story on both a individual and global level. I agree with Pauloog above, this isn't the best in terms of colours. Maybe next time try a black and white from a different angle, accentuating the ripples in the sand, and the sun coming in from outside. Great first post though.

    Mama! I'm scared! Really cool looking photo. Well done. The B/W was definitely the right choice for this. How did you do it though? Solarize? High contrast then invert colours?

    This is a great photo, because it makes me want to go hiking! This is a perfect example of northern Canada - rocks, trees, and lakes! That's it! The 50/50 cut between lake and forest here shows this well. Good job!

    I like the way the three figures in the foreground are all different in expression, but all the same distance from the lens. The background is like a backdrop on a stage set. Nice effect.

    Good capture of the place, though perhaps strong use of a polarizer. I enjoy your extensive notes that put things into context.

    As for the image, the yellows are balanced - the building on the top left and the chairs in the bottom right, the blues flow clockwise into grey and then into the yellow building via the cars. It's a pleasing wander for the eye.

    I bet this one would have looked different if you took it in the 1970s... the clothing is very Western here.

    Anyway, it is still a glimpse into a fascinating place.

    Wow, you certainly have loads of travel stories! If you are ever in London, England, look up the Globetrotters travel club on the 1st Saturday of most months.

    The photo shows the drummer but there is that space time thing again - it feels like another world and to get there, we need to travel in the 4th dimension. Just like returning to our childhood. I would have been only 4 years old then.

    Your images can make us think about these places and the places we are/were.
