The morning and evening light are the most perfect to get special beauty to any photo.

TL, evening from Brugge. The canal beauty is different at morning, and at evening.

I love those orange rays falling on building. Boats waiting for passangers. Calm and quite atmosphere...even water is still and enjoying the setting sun.

Happy sunday from snowy Bloomington.
The Sun, the hearth of affection and life, pours burning love on the delighted earth.

No snow in Brugge now, Vandana ;o). Nice evening mood here, the light is unmistakeably evening light. Awesome reflection in the near-still water. Good idea to drop the frame, there's enough beauty as is LOL. I see some jaggies in the red stripes of the boat, though. Anyway, nice memories!

Hello Sunshine.
Lovely looking Reall scene of Beautiful Brugge.
Very well performed.
Have a nice sunday eve
Best regards.

Hi Vandana,

Lovely shot with fine reflections and beautifull tones.
Happy days...

Enjoy the days:)

Hello Vandana

Hello Vandana

Yesterday Nivaldo (Niva), it posted us a picture of his Recife city, cut for the arms of the sea, a landscape similar to this, with their house edging the channel and their silhouettes in the surface of the waters.
Visual, beautiful beautiful compo!

To me this has a painted look...and I like it very much. The reflections are just super... very appealing. The colors are strong, also very attractive in this image. Lots to look at here and enjoy. Must have been a beautiful sight to see. Nice shooting...as always.


Hi Vandana,
a nice clean and clear shot. The colors of the buildings gives a contrast to the skyes. Great reflections in the water, very nice.

hello Vandana

colourful and lovely view of these typical building
you have created a nice composition



Hi Vanda,
It is a nice composition with nice soft light. But it looks like something went wrong in the PP as the image quality looks really strange. If you post the original version in the WS it might become clear what happened.


Hello Vandana! Amaizng cityscape. Wonderful lightness and sharpness. Wonderful colors. Good capture. Excellent effect. Good luck!

Very beautiful image Vandana, i love the reflects. Nice!
