    Hi Ricardo
    I like the slight distortion from the lens, the right tower seems to be leaning backwards a little, as if its stretching and yawning :) lovely composition, which is always your strength. the pink and purple colors are so attractive too.
    love it

    Hi Luciano
    yes, this is very very different from your past few posts, it couldn't be any more opposite. From weird, funky, modern art, to natural beauty and quite landscape scenes. easy to like this one. Rest in Peace Serghei. So sad. Craig

    Hi Jorge
    this reminds me of the childrens song "one of these isn't quite like the others". looks very peaceful and not much human interferrance, which is good. I like this one, its stands out well on your gallery page

    Hi Mariusz
    as a photographer I love and hate shooting these. Its hard on the neck haha...and its SO hard to line up all the angles and straight lines in a symmetical pattern - yet in the end they always look fantastic, so its worth all the pain and effort.
    I'm sure you're happy with this result. very hard to manage all the different lighting and shadows and over/under exposed areas...but again, the final product is very attractive
    cheers

    Hi Pierre
    I remember exactly where this is, yet I didn't come away with a similar photo - that's too bad. this angle works very well, as the Obelisk separates the scene and the two large structures in the bg. cheers

    Hi Csaba
    I just had to take a closer look at this one.
    I'm very impressed with the overall clarity of the scene, its spotless. love the overall ambiance and lighting and tones of blues and yellows. great to have these old structures still in use. cheers

    Hi Rob
    I had to take a second closer look at the driver...I was like...what the heck is that! The note explains it. as a car lover, this is right up my alley. look at the large front bumper, they don't make them like that anymore! fun post

    Hi Pavle
    this is so different from what we usually see from you, we often see old homes that have been abandoned. But certainly not this one, too bad you couldn't find out more information, that would be so interesting. lovely little home, I wonder if its used as a lawyers office or something like that. cheers

    Hi Ike
    well, this one caught me off guard, what's a SS Camaro doing in your gallery page :) As a car lover, I love this, although I do prefer the Corvette. Anyways, its always a fun view and it gets my attention, so as for a photo...then it worked out well.

    Hi Paul
    reading your note, its always interesting to hear what local guides believe tourists should see or not see. Often, its the opposite of what we want! interesting too, to hear you say alot of locals prefer to live on the water than dry land. So different from our cultures. I would love to see the inner city shots, of modern buildings, sky scrapers etc....just to compare. these have been very educational for me. great posts
    cheers

    Hi Elaine
    fun little scene you got here.
    I wonder if this little guy will ever be released into the wild...probably not because what would happen to the social structure of their family...elephants are very social an intelligent that way. excellent shot, its humurous and well composed. cheers

    Hi Gert
    funny to have the sign there like that, you'd think it was set up by the musicians, but from your note I gather it wasn't.
    This reminded me of my Idol Bruce Springsteen. He once sat out on the curbside, just like these guys, in the heart of Copenhagen, and just started playing solo. Within minutes word got out on social media, and suddenly there were hundred and hundreds of people packed in and around him. But obviously these guys are not pro's like him :) anyways, fun shot. cheers

    Hi David
    yes, I would say he has a pretty cool view each and every day of the week :) Its so vital that you include the beach, that way we get a sense of the height and of course the view as well. Well composed and thought out composition, it worked out for you. cheers

    looking at your gallery page I had to chose this one, I think its the long lines and depth that attracted me to it right away. Nice to have the light on the water surface too. Enjoy the warmth! cheers

    oh my...i'm still shocked. Been talking alot about this to my wife Joanne, just to vent and get it off my chest. As you know I was able to meet up with him as well, and at least we have that. thanks so much for the WS photos, they're lovely.

    Hi Murat
    looking at this view, its quite ominous. I get the sense bad things have occurred over the centuries, down this little alley way. it just has a feeling of...hmmmmmm....that gives the scene more interest and leaves alot of questions unanswered.
    I really like this one. cheers

    Hi Ian
    enjoy your trip!
    speaking of trip...I wonder if anyone has tripped while trying to cross the small connecting rock bridge...the thing is, if you did try, you'd still have to climb up to get to the top of the other stack. Maybe people would walk on the bridge just to get a photo taken, then walk back. Amazing to see that connection, I wonder how stable it is and how much weight it can hold. For me...I don't know how to swim, and i'm terrified of the water...so I won't be walking across it. awesome shot
    cheers
