Lepa priroda.
Imajte lep i uspesan dan, sve najbolje u novoj nedelji koja je pocela, srecno.

Hello Danos,
Impressive presentation of the Niagara Falls.
It would seem that the boat is in a precarious situation. I wonder how much its passengers can even see.
Your chosen POV must be one of the best spots to have an overview of the falls.
Best regards, Paul

Hello Danos,
spectacular photo with all that water surrounding the little ship. I guess they do it all the time but it looks kind of dangerous.
regards, Gerrit

Hello Danos,

This is a nice picture with beautiful soft colors. I like the way the boat seems to go toward the waterfall.

Witaj DEanos!
Amazing water effect.
Interesting colors and light.
Curious place.
Well done.
Have a nice day

Bonjour, cher ami Danos,
Ces chutes sont toujours aussi impressionnantes.
Très belle réussite photographique.
Je ne sais pas si j'aurais le courage de faire une promenade en bateau sous les chutes !

Hi Danos,

The lemgth of the river is giving depth to the composition. The presence of the boat has an effect pf scale. The point of view is showing the details of the Niagara Falls. A very popular touristic spot, have a nice day.

Hello Danos,

The Niagara Falls are always a very nice place for take a good picture, as this.
Perspective and depth are very well done.
This is real nice done, sharpness and clarity are perfect.
Nice captured and lovely presentation, TFS.

Have a nice Monday,

Bonjour Danos

On ne peut pas venir au Canada sans visiter Niagara et ses chutes . Ici la lumière de fin de journée apporte de belles teintes rosées au ciel ainsi qu'à l'eau. J'espère que tu as aimé le reste de ta visite.



Hello Danos,
The dominance of dark green and almost red, and the view of the boat about to disappear in the spray of water, makes me think of ancient ideas of Hell. I know the passengers on that boat were perfectly safe, maybe just wet, but this looks like a disaster about to happen. A very interesting and captivating photo.
Kind regards,

Hello Danos,

An amazing view of great and world famous Niagara Falls, a ship was in centre of the lower part of falls, this is a close view with good clarity and brightness. nice color and framing.

regards and thanks,


This view had not changed since... 8/1978 when I was there, Danos.
An abundance of water, with a loud roar keep pouring on the most impressive North-American cascade.
Fine afternoon colors, well in contrast inspite the rerlative mild light on dusk, and the boat powering against the strong stream, added to the already most dynamic photo.

Dear Danos,
A photo taken at the right time too. In both pictures from the same place today as a coincidence that we share. I really like the color of the sky. Did you also very wet in boat ?
Best regards

Καλησπέρα Δάνο,
μια σκηνή μεγαλειώδης και συναρπαστική. Ο θεατής παρακολουθεί το πλοίο με κομμένη την ανάσα, τα χρώματα, η ατμόσφαιρα και η δύναμη του νερού προκαλούν δέος. Ο τρόπος που διαχειρίστηκες τις ιδιαιτερότητες του φωτισμού είναι εκπληκτικός. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλό σου βράδυ,

Hi Danos.
Stunning large panoramic these famous waterfalls, stunning POV, by including the ship that looks tiny, given the grandeur of the place, but that comes in handy pair give idea of ​​the proportions, the special moment with that sunshine, color dyeing the sky and the waters.
Very well managed both luminosity and sharpness.
A very good job.
I wish you a good start to the week.
All the best.

Hello Danos,
Nice view of Niagara Falls with the little ship.
Perfect captured, great perspective, excellent clarity and interesting colors.
Very nice work!

Hello Danos,
This is a very powerful photo with the small Maiden of the Mist in the turbulent water. The lighting is nice and the photo has excellent sharpness and detail.

Hi Danos
Full of atmosphere that shows the power of the falls, this photo really captures the scene which brings back so many memories for me, and I like the limited number of colours in this.Well done, Congrats
Best regards

Hello Danos,
Being only 3 1/2 hours from Buffalo, I have seen Niagara Falls many times and similarly, I have seen many photos of the place. You have managed to bring in a fresh look with the POV, the location of the Maid of the Mist boat and the reflections of the setting sun from the falls, bravo! Very well done!

Hello Danos, I can almost feel the mist on my face, splendid composition. Amazing colours of waterfall. Must be fun to go in this boat.
I had no fun, in April it was all still frozen :(.

Hello Danos,
You caught the impressive falls in a truly amazing light here. The purple colours of the sky and the falls are really great. Good inclusion of the boat too. Very well done and thanks for sharing!

Hello Danos

Spectacular photo of the famous Niagara Falls. A good mixture of colours and a well selected POV. The raging waters and the steam adds a lot of drama to the scene. Very nice work:) Thanks.

Have a nice evening.

Hi Danos,

What a gorgeous display of emerald greens and pink hues, this is a delightful color scheme. Not too often we see pictures from here at this hour, so it's a refreshing take on the famous falls. Beautiful and powerful no matter what time of day or night, but the soft light and tones in the sky give this a special enchantment. The boat makes for a perfect additional element in the scene. I can virtually feel the mist from here. :) Thanks for providing us with a soothing visual and a great way to end the day. Take good care. All the best.

Friendly wishes,

Geia sou Danos
I saw many pictures of those falls, plenty taken in daytime an some at night from the elevated Skylon Tower.
But none of those viewed had such a subtle pastel depiction conveyed by the setting sun that painted art in the sky to match the hues projected on falls by the rear projectors tower.
A piece of fine art!
Se xereto.

Hallo Danos,
very beautiful photo, well done

Niagara Falls, and the miracle of God's nature.
Masterpieces of Photography
Very nice photo
Good job
Best wishes to you

Howdy Danos,

Fine panoramic view of the Niagara Falls force, with the Maid of the Mist heading close to the action, enhanced by the subdued light.

Good job,

Hi Danos,
I have a huge sentiment for this view as I had the pleasure to visit it many years ago. Sadly I was on an organized tour and did not have much time and freedom to take the photos which I would like to take. I was on this boat though :)
Great capture here with the boat playing a very important role, allowing us to feel the enormous size of the waterfalls.
Excellent work,

Hello Danos,

An amazing view, very well composed and with that pink light that makes it very special. The haze in front of the boat looks like a waterfall coming from the sky. Bravo!

TFS, regards, José.

Hola Danos

Powerful capture of the falls where noise must be terrible, taken from a good POV to let admire the failing water with a nuance of pink and the adventurous touristic boat as a focal interest point

Well done, regards

Hello Danos,
WOW!Superbe présentation de ces fameuses chutes, un point de vue encore jamais vu pour moi. Impressionnant le bateau au milieu de cette eau en ébullition. Superbes les tons rosés du ciel qui se reflètent sur l'eau. J'aime beaucoup!
Merci pour le partage.

interesting the diagonals created by the falls with the boat going ahead to the fog. I liked the pinky light and the quality of this image.



Awesome scene! I can almost hear the roar of the water coming down the waterfalls, but I don't think I'm brave enough to ride that boat. Good pov and nice details. Well done, tfs.

Hi Danos, What a beautiful scene of the Canada Niagara Falls (Horseshoe) with spectacular light in the water at night. Perfect capture timing and well camera exposure to show the force of this giant and powerful falls. It looks like you had a very good time in Canada. TFS

Hello Danos,

Well composed using the rule of thirds with the horse shoe shaped Niagara Falls making a superb backdrop. The soft sunset colours of pink and orange contrast well against the blue cyan tints in the water. The boat makes a good focal point. Tfs!

Hello Danos. The view of the famous waterfalls is great. The scenery is truly magnificent. Unfortunately, I've never been to this area.
Rgds, Wolfgang.
