Oh, Kathryn, you're killing me softly! This was a shocker as soon as it appeared on the screen. I'm not going to talk about composition, color and blah-blah-blah. On the emotional level, this one is the best from what I saw from you thus far. It goes straight to likeys.
Kathryn: VZ, your words and your photographs are always so valued, encouraging and inspiring. I thank you for that.

A total WOW for me as well, Kathryn. And a Likey!

I really like how the outside border mimics the inside ones. This really is brilliant!
Kathryn: Glad you like it enough for it to join your Likeys! Speaking of borders, does Shutterchance always put a border around pictures or can you turn that off?
This is excellent, really nice everythingsmile Do you have continuous access to this place, cos you could do a series of different skies through the window.
Kathryn: Thanks, Nigel. Nope no access to the window as it is located in what is now the Reichtstadt Museum in Rothenburg, Germany. I did take series of pictures from this window at various angles as well as from other similiar type windows. The windows and arches in that abbey/museum are really interesting!

Speechless. Going to my likey.
Kathryn: Thank you, Louis.
Such a clever and interesting shot. I like it a lot. (:o)
Kathryn: Rosayn, glad you like it.
Mysterious & very interesting
Kathryn: Much like the world...mysterious and interesting. Thanks for stopping by.
Lovely atmospheric shot. All the best, Dave.
Kathryn: When I was looking out the window, I put myself in the place of those monks and nuns and wondered what the atmosphere was like for them in that dark hard place. Hopefully gazing out that window add some lovely atmosphere to their lives!
well executed concept!
Kathryn: Thanks much, Doc.

Your work is going from strength to strength. Excellent - likey ;o)
Kathryn: Thanks so much for the comment. When I look at my recent stuff, I can tell you the sources of my Shutterchance inspirations. So you guys are to thank.
super in every way, im envious.
Kathryn: Tim, you know all of the great pictures here on Shutterchance are so inspirational that since joining a month or so ago, I've become driven again. Thanks.
Superb. Somewhere there is a book that this should be the cover for. James Herbert or Steven King?
Kathryn: Bill, now there is an idea--maybe in my next life I will come back as a graphic designer of book covers. I'd rather like that!
Beautiful - simple and elegant.
Kathryn: Thanks so much. Jewlya.
Esto es muy bueno. Una idea brillante! Me gusta y para mí en un LIKEY!
Kathryn: Es freue mich dass du mein Bild mags. (It makes me happy that you like my picture)

Just dont have words to express. The light on the ledge, albeit subtle, has made the picture so special and real. This is awesome. Fantastic picture.
Kathryn: Sandeep, thank you so much for your inspirational and very generous words.

Kathryn: Llam, thanks..I am honor to be called an artist.

This is a gorgeous shot, it gave me goosebumps immediately. The richness and depth to the clouds is so... alluring ~ it makes one want to float right out the windows. Causes me to think of quiet patience, and appreciation.

I wish I knew more about photography, so that I could give you better feedback!

Ein hinreißendes Foto! Ich liebe die Wolken und das etwas geheimnisvolle Licht, Du musst bei Caspar David Friedrich in die Lehre gegangen sein. Ich komme gerade aus Hamburg zurück, wo ich einige paintings von ihm gesehen habe, zum Teil in Vergleich mit meditativen Bildern von Mark Rothko! Sorry, today in German, but I'm a little tired after the journey on a very hot summerday!(38 grade Celsius)
You are welcome Kathryn! I can see you eyes are very well again!
