Dear colleagues and friends for today I prepared a new collage.
This time are images gathered from the cache, after visiting in 2007 made in Monaco.
I hope you enjoy this collage.
Usually expect the proposals, suggestions and your criticisms.
I wish you all a nice weekend,

Monaco officially the Principality of Monaco, is a small sovereign city-state located in South Western Europe on the northern central coast of the Mediterranean Sea.
It is surrounded on three sides by its neighbour, France, and its center is about 16 km (9.9 mi) from Italy. Its area is just under 2 km² with an estimated population of almost 33,000.

Monaco is the name of the country and its capital (and only) city. It is famous as a tax haven, and wealthy foreigners make up the majority of the population, around 84%. It is often referred to as the Las Vegas of Europe.

Monaco is a constitutional monarchy and principality, with Prince Albert II as head of state. The House of Grimaldi has ruled Monaco since 1297, and the state's sovereignty was officially recognized by the Franco-Monegasque Treaty of 1861. Despite being independent, Monaco's defence is the responsibility of France.

Monaco is the second smallest country in the world; only the Vatican City is smaller. Monaco is also the world's second smallest monarchy (and principality to be more exact). The state consists of only one municipality (commune). There is no geographical distinction between the State and City of Monaco, although responsibilities of the government (State-level) and of the municipality (city-level) are different. According to the constitution of 1911, the principality was subdivided into three municipalities:

* Monaco (Monaco-Ville), the old city on a rocky promontory extending into the Mediterranean, known as the Rock of Monaco, or simply Le Rocher (the Rock), where the palace is located
* Monte Carlo, the principal residential and resort area with the Monte Carlo Casino in the east and northeast
* La Condamine, the northwest section including the port area, Port Nikolas Flores

P.S. Dear Adrian, my English is no good.....but do you prefer that I write in English?

Guten Tag, Adrian!

A wonderful collage again, but this time you share some postcard pictures from Monaco!

Great observations, however, like Vanda does, I do like the shot you did at the late evening hours. Perfect details, nice colors, great lights and wonderful landscapes.

Schönes Wochenende!

Fantastique iamge, toutes ces belles vignettes que tu nous présente, quel effet, quelle travail de présentation, fantastique iamge et ensemble.

Bravo et amitié


Hello my friend,

Beautiful collage.
Each photo has nice scene and excellent sharpness, light and colors.

Warm greetings and best wishes,

Hi Adrian - whilst individually most of these shots have lots of good points (especially the bottom right photo that I particularly like) I find that the collage is poorly thought out. The photos are different sizes and there are big areas of black where the spaces are.. To me this is just rather poor work.. Your last collage was the same.. Sadly no-one has pointed out the obvious facts to you...

If you're going to do a collage like this then great - but make the photos fit so it's an even looking piece of work...


PS - this is a critique of the image, not of you personally..

Aceeasi observatie ca si la montajul anterior : sunt frumoase, sunt interesante, sunt puse alandala. Si daca ar fi total alandala ar fi OK dar nu sunt si nu e OK (pentru mine, evident)

Hello Adrian,

Nice capture. There is a feeling of wholeness which is just what is expected here. Thanks for this one.
