    Ciao Silvio,
    This is another excellent capture. It's very dramatic, with the butterfly spreading its wings. The black and white antennae are cute, too. :-) Take care!

    Hello Ian,
    I've always liked the silky effect of a long exposure on water, and here you have beautiful falls to use that technique with. I like the difference of flow between the more vertical drop in the background, and the "steps" in the foreground. The greenery is pretty, too. It must have also sounded and smelled nice. Take care!

    Hello Gert,
    These are three things I never expected to see in the same scene: a woman lounging in the grass, some modern art, and a group of soldiers! It's amusing to see those soldiers working in the middle of a park. It's an interesting shot. Take care!

    Very cool POV and composition. The play of light and shadow really pulled me in, and I also like the warm color of the architecture. Take care!

    Hello Lars,
    You already know that I like this type of photo. :-) It's the perfect display of reflections, with a combination of old and new architecture. The older building is beautiful, and the slight distortions add a little extra to the scene. Take care!

    Hello Pavle,
    This is a cheerful view of the flowers and pretty, yellow color. This bicycle reminds me of something called a "ghost bicycle" here in NYC. If someone dies while on a bicycle, a memorial is made at the site with a painted bicycle and flowers. Thankfully this is a happy scene. Take care!

    Ciao Silvio,
    We have two Italian butterfly hunters here on TE. :-) This is a lovely capture. The details and sharpness are excellent, and the purple flower and yellow details of the butterfly stand out nicely against the blurred, green background. Take care!

    Hello Gyorgy,
    You captured a scene that combines the elegance of Budapest, with the modern-day phenomena of posting photos on social media. I do like the arches, and the view below, but what really caught my attention was the tote bag; I have the same one! It came from the Danish shop Flying Tiger, which sadly left the US during the pandemic. This scene made me smile. :-) Take care!

    Hello Lars,
    before I opened this photo, I thought it was a winter view, but it's actually spring. The rock formations are definitely interesting, and so is the setting. That one, lone rock on the left side didn't get its own fence. How sad... ;-) Take care!

    Hello Paul,
    I need to catch up on your photos of the abbey! This first one shows a nice overview of the complex, and with group of people adding scale to the view. It's amazing to think of monks occupying this site so many centuries ago. Here in NY something is considered very old if it's from 150-200 years ago!

    Hello Gert,
    The dzong, and all the houses in the background, look lovely surrounded by all that greenery. It's a unique, and for me, exotic view, and those two trees frame each side of the foreground nicely, too.

    Hello Gert,
    Your scanning abilities, and I'm sure the quality of your scanner, have improved. :-) I can really appreciate all the details of this woman's traditional clothes and jewelry, and the colors are very natural, too. I also like the bit of red paint on the wall in the background. Take care!

    Hello Gyorgy,
    This photo popped up randomly on your page, and I like it! First I noticed the cafe's sign, which looks Art Deco, and the small windows beneath it are also pretty. Then there is all the color of the items for sale, as well as the red tablecloth. Nice scene. :-)

    There is so much history in this quiet village. If these stones could talk, they would tell a lot of stories. :-) The arch and tower are lovely, and I like how we can see all the greenery inside the arch, too. Take care!

    Hello Krzysztof,
    I like this kind of house, and the red and orange bricks are beautiful. We can see that the house is old, but it is in good shape, and the windows are new. I like the railing on the small balcony, too. Take care!
