Beautiful color and detail. I just caught Mt Hood in the peal of Rhoadie season, a first in the past 11 years. The NS picture was Larry's last trip to his family homestead...it was for a wedding. I have also found some surprising results with the latest processing tools, or maybe it's just that I learned how to do a better Raw conversion, now I do little else other than a quick frame. GLV, Pat
Your main really does look real in that magical light! Initially I thought that it was from your trip to Europe. It does seem that the real places have just as many people. At least Disney avoids the power lines and street signs although the Ci does show an abundance of motor vehicles. Glad Mr Tyler had a ball! HLJ x3, P
What amazing images!! My favorites are #'s 3 & 4!! In # 3 the pair are perfectly framed and looking right at you. The detail in all are impeccable. You look like you're having such fun! I would love to go to one of these workshops but when I googled Ken Pugh & Dancing with wolves I only got wedding photography! HLJ, Pat
from this angle it doesn't look like a typical volcano. I hope it isn't so explosive like saint helen.
very nice this view with the pink touch of the last light. the shapes of the mount are very beautiful. TFS.

I had thought about to visit canada this year and the image of colorful falls of jmarc and this humble port remind me this. anyway my project is different at this moment.
very nice view of the houses, boats and these very calm waters, a special compo for the theme.perfect.
plimrn (2018/06/19 19:56:43): I love Canada and the easiest way to see it is by car. The driving is easy and the views amazing. In 2014, We drove from BC to Newfoundland and back. I wouldn't recommend that drive!.... But renting a car in Halifax, and Montreal or Quebec and then again on Vancouver Island is worthwhile A ferry trip through the Islands is also fun. What is your new project?
when I was there it was raining and with a touch of fog. a nothing view from nothing... you know...
marvelous this view with the most special light and weather. better than this is impossible. fantastic.
Welcome back from Tallinn and Helsinki! It was a pleasure to meet you shortly in Helsinki.
What a beautiful image! In addition to the reflections I like the gorgeous side light, the colours of the dresses and last but not least the lovely mood this photo transmits. And of course, this is an excellent contribution to the theme.
I love them all, The looks as if they were taken in the wild as if you come upon them in their own natural habitat...:) You could have fooled me, cause they look as natural. I would believe if you say that you were hiking in some wilderness and spotted them. Your posing with one gives it away, haha, or perfect they pose for some food, like a live chicken or something...like that. Hehe.
Another beautiful street art. I like this one with a message and also how the art leave the patterns of the brick exposed as part of the design. Excellent shots and I love the Pano in Black and white also.
I know, the lilies are quite difficult to photograph, they are little too deep for good DOF. Background tends to focus too well wit the main flower. You did pretty good job on it. I always wish that the flowers would have more common sense and grew in front of peaceful and smooth background. ;-)
But they do not grow for photographers only.
Wonderful composition. I have to admire the way you positioned flowers around the butterfly. Both are beautiful, flowers and insect.
We have plenty of stinging nettles, really stinging. They did not produce any butterflies, they just sting.
Good focus on the main subject and the colours are perfect.
Having wolves that are used to humans makes focusing your camera much easier. Great models.
Picture are fantastic, could have fooled me to think they are wild beasts. Their eyes say so.
I had once a chance to take a shot of wild one but it was from the second storey window. And my hand shook nevertheless. Exciting animals, and so huge.
Lovely day, typical Greek blue sky. We have talked about going to Greece many times as a second country to visit while we make a trip to Switzerland to see family, but somehow it seem too little time. We would need two whole week to see Greece...It is still on the list of place to see for sure. It look relatively quiet here and peaceful. than again I know better, sometimes what goes on behind the camera is a total different world, it could be a whole army of photographers or partying people....:)
The life of this little puppy must be exciting and most fascinating at the time. The first sentence of your note, this standing at attention, is wonderfully rendered in your photo. May this puppy have a good life ... The shodow of the fence is a nice additional attraction in the picture.
Greetings from summerly but rather cool Germany!
So schön sie auch sind - jede blüht jedoch leider nur einen Tag ... Schön wie diese Taglilienblüte durch den unscharfen Hintergrund fast aus dem Bild herausragt. Der Farbverlauf in der Blüte ist einfach wunderschön!
Grüße aus dem sommerlichen Westfalen!
A really worth seeingand fancy photo - photography at its best! The contrast of old and new here somehow is stunninng - and at the first glance really confusing ;-) The effect of the golden light is another attraction in your picture.
Greetings from rather cool Germany! Have a nice week!
A remarkable photo, especially when considering the difficulties concerning the chief character here. Butterflies are rather jumpy and "impatient" photo models. The selective focus and the contrast in colours here make the iris with the butterfly wonderfully stand out. They also live here and they have the samr name: Schwalbenschwanz. I think a photo to be proud of ...
Greetings from again cooler and very dry Siegen!
I like it but it's not my favorite.
Focal length of 18 mm, for me, provides "plenty of nothing", which is perfect with your minimalizm. I prefere "standard" focal, in your case probably 35 mm, which provides more human like perspective.
Mt.Olymp would have been slightly bigger and more visible but, I know, is not your choice.
Greetings from Ontario, right now as hot as Greece.
PS.Sorry for bad rhyme. ;-)
