Wow - the red couldn't be more perfect against the blue. Nicely done - the focus is tack sharp and the reflective quality is wonderful.

Thanks for all those good comments. This is the first time I photograph this building. Never thought it was worth the film ;) But the day I took this picture the sea was just perfect and the light outside was very good. Thanks again.

Great colours and conrast, and the milkiness of the sky/ water is beautiful. I like the composition very much too. My joint favourite this week.

crisp image, wonderful reflection, and the color of the red roofs against that purple/blue sky and mountain create a very strong composition. lovely. (9)

Where is this located? I absolutely LOVE the reflection on the water. The white of the building looks crisp and the levels ease my eyes around the shot. Nice work with this one.
09/26/2002 07:44:00 PM
so inviting. looks like a travel postcard or poster.
09/26/2002 01:31:00 PM
Very nice. Would have made a great submission for our next challenge. Focus, lighting and subject are all very good. 9 waltoml.

Wow, could this be more perfect?! Are you going to enter it again in the reflections challenge? -10 joanns
09/26/2002 02:09:00 AM
beautiful. Love the reflection. 10
09/26/2002 12:28:00 AM
Arnit ? Great colours/ simplicity. I like this a lot. Feels slightly squnit/ tilted but that could just be the perspective.
09/25/2002 09:42:00 PM
Well done. JEM

Very Very nice. =10 syamjonimi ;'-D
09/25/2002 01:51:00 PM
Excellent detail and color. Perfect exposure.
09/25/2002 01:51:00 PM
UPDATE: ha! That took a long time, huh? I changed your score to a 9.

The simplicity of this shot is TERRIFIC. The reflection makes the photo. Nice capture. You almost lose the mts into the sky in the background - that doesn't spoil it for me, but I'm curious of how the shot would work with the mts clearly defined. Just an idea in case you might shoot some more. This one is a keeper regardless. 8, just-married. Might become a 9 as the week passes.

Beauty...beauty. Wonderful contrast.
09/24/2002 10:21:00 PM
Wow! Where is this? This is an excellent photo. The red roof against the clouds and mountains gives it the perfect balance. A definite 10.
09/24/2002 08:55:00 PM
i liek this shot a great deal - primarily because of the wonderful color combos - my eye wants to be closer - snugger to the wonderful bldg tho - but i understand the limitations! Sometimes a closer crop just wont do - great pic! 9 sgtpepper6344
09/24/2002 03:29:00 PM
This could work for the new challenge. I love the colors!
09/24/2002 01:23:00 PM
Take it again at higher tide, I think.... beautiful otherwise (8)
09/24/2002 08:49:00 AM
Superb !!!!
09/24/2002 06:28:00 AM
Wonderful color.
09/24/2002 05:46:00 AM
Quite a lovely shot. The reflection in the water is great, and gives the composition a wonderful balance. Available light is perfect for the shot. "Moderate to high" visual impact for me. Nice work! lhall-8
09/24/2002 04:48:00 AM
What a neat photo! I love the reflection in the ater, and the colors are very nice as well

This is a beautiful shot, color, clarity and composition are all top notch! One of my favorites this week. DPz
09/23/2002 10:05:00 PM
The first thig i said was "wow" i would personaly have like a bit less foreground and a tad more sky as to make it not so centered but thats my little nit pick.

Awesome clarity and detail. Nice subject, nice background, nice color...take the goo out of the water and I'll give you a ten!! so settle for 9 pilgrim.- Inspzil
09/23/2002 11:59:00 AM
The reflection adds a very nice dimension to this photo. I can't make up my mind completely if I like the horizon splitting the center of this photo... I can see that the sky is probably uninteresting, so adding more of that would probably not help... Maybe moving the horizon up in the frame would create more impact... I don't know what is visible in the water below the frame here... good shot :) = 8 - jmsetzler
09/23/2002 11:27:00 AM
I just love your shot....good color, interesting reflection, sharp. Nice work. WOW.
