    Wspaniale graficznie ujecie, bardzo dobrze wybrany pierwszy plan. Schody prowadza wzrok ku glownemu tematowi zdjecia, a ludzka postac daje pojecie o wielkosci kosciola. Przyciemnione krotkim czasem naswietlania niebo bardzo pasuje do kompozycji i tematu.
    Zycze milego tygodnia.

    Niesamowity wrecz jest przepych tego wnetrza, mozna tam stac i godzinami wpatrywac sie w szczegoly. Naprawde dobry temat na zdjecie szerokim obiektywem, zeby ujac tych detali jak najwiecej. Podoba mi sie symetria kompozycji i to jak dobrze naswietlone jest zdjecie mimo oczywistego zakazu uzywania lamp blyskowych (to na dowod, z przyjrzalam sie dokladnie temu zdjeciu). :-)

    This reminds me of the scenes I remember from the graveyard by the Winchester Cathedrals with lots of people sitting on and around old graves. If the people buried there could speak for themselves maybe they would say they actually apreciate the company?
    Compared to other cemeteries I know there seems to be quite a lot of space there and the green grass looks lovely in the sunshine (yes, 18th of June, noted - the first day when our weather went crazy). ;-)
    Have a nice week

    As I probably have mentioned a million of times I love this view of Stockholm. Preferably with the Lake Mälaren frozen over and covered with snow of course but as we can't have 12 months of winter every year I'll settle for this summer weather option. ;-)
    The tugboat really does make for an interesting foreground. I like the WS photo too but would prefer the boat slightly to the left. But then with moving objects and subjects we can often only have one choice of The Shot (just like in the case of my pink-clad water-carrying girls in Wakhan).

    Hi Gert
    Well-spotted interesting formation of clouds. I miss this kind of weather - apart from something like 5 fairly hot and cloudless days we've been enjoying views of the sky in 50 shades of grey and lead since 18 June.
    I also prefer the main photo because of the reflections. I would maybe crop the top of the image off and make it square but that's only because I'm jealous about that bit of clear blue... ;-)

    Hi Abmdsudi
    Many times I observed men of this age in Nepal, just sitting and having a relaxing time. I even posted one or two similar photos. I bet they know something we don't know and they can't understand why we keep rushing about and doing things.
    Great shot, light-coloured clothes of the main subject stand out nicely on the dark background and the off-centre composition is really eye-catching.

    Hi Jorge
    Well captured street scene! We know exactly, if it was Brazilian spring, it was in 2020 because of the face masks.
    Interesting about the temperature being higher in September than in summer months. You asked about our springtime memories... In Poland the equivalent of September is March and it's still quite a cold month then in May the weather can become quite hot and that would last till the beginning of September with breaks for some colder and rainy periods that can even last a couple of weeks. In Britain where I live now the first spring flowers can start as early as late January. And yes, I do remember many of the springs in my life.

    Hi Gerwyn
    We haven't had a great weather this summer but at least rain means some dramatic clouds. They also give a nice reflected colour to the sea and make for a sepia feel overall. I really like the blur created by long exposure.

    Hi David
    Really glad this tradition is still alive! I have always found Mr Punch and his show a fascinating example of British culture.
    Apart from a handful of people the beach seems deserted and the clouds may be the explanation. It seems June 2014 was blessed with the same kind of summer weather as July 2021.

    Thanks for sharing this, it's a very interesting artistic project. I'm glad you added the WS - fascinating how the hearts cast the shadows, the whole thing is like a symbol of reality seen from different angles.

    Hi Bev
    Superb viewpoint! We can admire one of the most amazing buildings of Florence close up and also the wonderful panorama of the city and the distant hills.
    It would be really funny to come across an upload from the same day, posted by one of the people standing on the dome with a note "if you look closely, you will see some small figures on the campanile". :-D

    Hi Jean
    The clouds really makes your photo special. On one hand they look very heavy, but then on the other quite fluffy and white in places.
    It's incredible how much rain we have had recently, it's good to see you enjoyed some sunshine!

    Hi Gyorgy
    Fascinating place! The roof window makes me wonder - illumination is one thing but what about rain?
    The WS photos are a very good addition but the main one really shines - I love the silhouettes at the entrance. They give a sense of scale but also add an artistic touch to the image.

    Ciao Luciano
    This room deserves being photographed for many reasons, mine would be the overwhelming amount of Baroque details. The WS photo shows those really well too and I could spend ages just looking at them. The table makes for a good foreground.

    Hi Ricardo
    This morning I was lucky to have an opportunity to spend some time photographing three species of the same family: Painted Lady, Red Admiral and Peacock (Inachis Io) butterflies in my local park. Wish we had this beauty here too!
    Great image, the subject is well positioned and combined with a lovely flower. Thanks to backlighting we can see intricate details in both. Neutral background works really well too.
