    Thanks for sharing Kow :)

    Always nice to see more perspectives to help jog the memories of places travelled.

    I hope you get to go back and spend a lot more time in a lot of those places you visited, definitely worth a trip you do at your own pace.

    Id say i like the Terror Haza the most but that is just in terms of composition it hits a chord with me.

    Your shot at Auschwitz i very much like, it gives the place the respect it deserves.

    Same with the portraits within Terro Haza

    is #19 a tight crop? what is it like at full size? or were you just zoomed in? Would like to see it a bit wider.

    #25 is also another very nice shot i like :)

    I think we have some similar shots from vantage points (tho i havent put up each city yet, if you check out my thread)

    Also Sir Ghallahad has some classic shots of Europe and he's about to go capture some more! Is worth a look for the way he has presented some of his shots after a trip.

    Looks like you had a blast :thumbup:

    I will go back and take some time to get some really decent shots. I did the best i could with the conditions available. I wasn't sure so what i really wanted to see when i went over which is why i chose to blitz the entire thing in one month on a bus tour. I didn't take any shots inside auschwitz. I didn't really feel comfortable doing it. Plus it was raining.

    #19 isn't my shot, i just wanted to explain what i was happening :)

    #13 is big ben... It's pretty big ... for a clock.

    Defiantly had a blast :)

    the drunken idiots is what makes it fun :)

    you might want to spell Prague correctly, especially if you've written it any blogs.

    those pics bring back some good memories. thanks for sharing :)

    Hey man! Great shots overall, here are my comments!;

    1= Definatly gives the place the respect it deserves,
    2= Looks quite cool!
    4= The white line thingy at the bottom is slightly off putting for me... :Paranoid:
    6= The blue and white contrast each other nicely!
    13= Did you notice the scaffolding around the building? Repair time!
    16= Did you go inside the Moulin Rouge? I was too young to go fully inside when I was there.
    19= I must remember to look for these when I one day travel the world.
    21= There is a similar thing in Croatia where you rub the toe of the statue for good luck or something similar. Its funny how it keeps the gold (bronze) colouring whist the rest weathers.
    28= Did you visit the Mask shops in Venice, I remember one we went into had the most amazing masks covering the walls, we bought 2!

    Now you've got me dreaming of an overseas trip Haha!

    Hey man great photos number 2 and 20 are great. I like some of the effects you used number 1 suits the place and the b&w for number 25 is great.

    Can't wait to get to these places myself.
