I think the most beautiful thing to photograph is to be found all over the world - people. But it takes some will and guts to photograph them, which i am determined to develop

I totally agree... photos of people from different lifestyles definately make the best photos... but I just can't bring myself to do it... I feel so rude and intrusive... even if people want their phtot taken, I feel so uncomfartable. Good luck to anyone who can!

The most photogenic place I've ever been to was Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia. It's an unreal place with crazy colours, and you just can't be unsuccessful in taking pictures.

Apart from that... I like photographing skies, and the sky is particularly beautiful in New Zealand (it's so big!!!) or in the Chilean Andes.

Brazil, India and Morocco are stunning destinations : )

But as it has been said, every place has it´s beauty and non is "nicer" than another.. Diferent, yes :)

And well, the light in Paraguay was magic, too. It must be the heat and the location (totally landlocked and forgotten in the middle of a huge continent) that makes it so special.

The entire Andes, the Bariloche Lake district and Buenos Aires nightlife

My #1 Destination so far for taking travel pictures has to be Monaco. It's amazing how the cliffs and hills just lead into the water.

i agree with this. There is beautiful photography in every country.
I think Australia has some great photography yo offer with The Whitsundays and underwater shots of the reef.

Uluru at sunrise and sunset is very nice to

I think the secluded places in early morning light make for wornderful images. I enjoy photographing places that are in snow or misty light. Places that inspired me were Indonesia, Prague, Vietnam, Thailand - see samples in my gallery. Some of the places you pass by in your home land make great images if you look at them differently, a wooded forest in stippled daylight, a lake at sunset or morning mist over hills. Everywhere you look, people or play of light creates an opportunity. I may have some inspiring examples on my next trip to China and Tibet to add to the collection.

I think a great picture can be anything that catches your eye that makes you stop. Whether its a vagrant on the corner, someone working in a rice paddy or majestic fjords.

I think sometimes in pictures you can see if someone was just taking pics to take them cause they are there and then your can tell when someone is taking them because they want to remember and relive this moment later and love what they are seeing or at least see the uniqueness.

ya know. and no i'm not stoned man..

One of the most magical picture moments was very early morning sunrise over the Namib desert. With the deep red sands, the dead trees and the high dunes the Namib desert is very photogenic. But being there after a few weeks with highly rare rain, the desert sprouted with green dots and perfect still puddles for sharp reflection, the early sun shining its orange light over the red sand... I'll never forget those moments - and the pic's I took...

For the rest: Norwegian winter landscapes are pretty good: sharp light, frozen lakes, darkgreen forests, fjords... or indeed the greek islands :)

I have to agree with all the people who love to take pictures of people! Little kids from a very poor family in Soweto, South Africa, sheperds in Lesotho, wrinkled old people with the greatest of teethless smiles in Bulgaria and Russia... or just the multicultural society in my country - the netherlands. Picturing people is always fun (but sometimes you have to ask permission, as I found out the hard way...)

My only problem is: I very much like photography, but I don't haver the money (yet) for the good equipment... I'm still working with an 'old fashioned' SLR with a film when at home, and with a Minolta Dimage Z1 when travelling....
