    Hello Ian,

    The rustic wooden cottage looks a bit like the Ansel Adams museum in Yosemite. Good sharpness and the colourful kayaks add a splash of colour. The fallen brown leaves denote that Autumn is in progress. Tfs!

    Bonjour Gueguel


    An unusual side by side combination of the half-timbered house at right evocative of Europe, and the rotunda at left. Good sharpness and the dotted white line of squares adds lead in lines. Tfs!

    Good sharpness and shadow detail with unusual angular lines on this charming stone church. Well managed lighting and stark contrasts between the sunny right and shaded left. Tfs!

    Bonjour Denis,

    This looks like a similar down the street view I took in Lisbon, only the roofs here are much redder and in better condition. The sunlight illuminating the mini garden at right is a nice detail. Tfs!

    Marvellous reflections with good sharpness and a pleasant, diffused light. The small wooden viewing platform in the distance provides a good focal point. Tfs!

    Hi Malgo

    Good reflections at left with the mosque and grounds looks immaculate, new, and well kept. A sad fact of life that a security guard is needed in a place of worship, even in a staunchly Muslim country. I would love to have visited neighboring Yemen before the civil war broke out. Tfs!

    Hello Malgo,

    Looks like Central Australia or Jordan. Good sharpness and the people in single file on the walking track, animate the scene. Excellent color, saturation and framing too. Tfs!

    Hello Ike

    From this angle the city resembles Surfers Paradise and the Nerang River.

    Bonjour Pierre,

    The low rise red Mercury Capri sports car looks impressive still and hasn't dated all that much. Good sharpness and a nice angled pov. Nice reflections in the shiny bonnet. Tfs!

    Bonjour, Jean

    I like the tight framing here with no part of the screen wasted. They have similar animal decorations on Korean Temples. The lighting here is perfect with the statues in full sun, against a dark, shaded bg. Tfs!

    The title makes me think of the Poseidon Adventure, a mid 70's disaster film with the soundtrack of 'There's got to be a morning after'. Good sharpness and framing and the rusting hulk that appears to have crashed into the shore also evokes memories of shipwrecks on tropical islands, but there are no coconut trees in Iceland! Tfs!

    The railway tracks add excellent linear perspective and lead in lines. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. The overhead electricity wires and half square support frames enhance the effect and add depth and layering. Tfs!

    Hello Costantino,

    Brrr! Looks cold but nice to look at in the southern hemisphere on a hot day of 34c. The wheel tracks add perspective. The red stop sign provides a splash of colour. Tfs!

    I like the contrast of the slightly oblique lines of the horizontal stairs, with the sharp and austere vertical lines of walls & the archway. Good sharpness and upward pov. Tfs!

    Hello Piotr,

    Well I did visit a lookout in Budapest but I don't think it was this one as the castle turrets and saint on a horse do not jog my memory. Good sharpness and nice shadow detail with the sunlight illuminating the upper portions very nicely. Tfs!

    Hello Mariusz,

    I am sure that the owner would be pleased with the free publicity! The fudge looks delicious and unlike in Australia, there is not a problem with flies at this time of year, so the confectionery does not need to be covered and sells quickly at the markets. The woman seems to have spotted some that she would like to buy. Tfs.

    It looks like a big red butterfly without a thorax. Punchy light contrasts, good sharpness and the shadow adds symmetry. The strong back lighting has been well managed. Tfs!

    Hi Federico

    I spent a couple of relaxing weeks on Samosir Island & this brings back pleasant memories. Good sharpness, colour and saturation and taken from a superb high vantage point. The different tones and colours of the rice paddies stand out. Tfs!
