    Hello Gert,

    A good daily life shot from the communal well of the women fetching several pails of water. Good colour, sharpness and framing. Tfs!

    Hi Lars,

    You had perfect weather with clear blue skies and no jet trails or photo bombing pigeons. Well framed and composed with good sharpness. The gelati looks inviting. Tfs!

    An unusual statue which at first glance looks Polynesian, Maori or Hawaiian perhaps, until you notice the tie. Good sharpness and framing. Tfs!

    Ciao Mariusz

    Touch wood I can post critiques, as I can longer post photos since they messed around with the site. A few Captain Cook Statues have been defaced here as a small but vocal minority see him as an invader. Hope this obelisk fares a little better. Good sharpness, depth and perspective with the rough trail leading directly to the people in the bg. Tfs!

    Hello Paja,

    This reminds me of a similar shot I took in Cluj Napoca in Romania with an old window with many different styles of panes, some transparent and others opaque or solid. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. Tfs!

    Hello Miguel,

    I can only vaguely remember Kuantan which I visited in the early 90's. The mosque was the most impressive structure in the city. Nice inclusion of the fg red flowers here to add a splash of contrasting colour with the cooler blue tones in the bg. Tfs!

    Hi Gert

    The crescent moon is usually a symbol of Islam. History is repeating itself unfortunately with many statues being destroyed in several Western countries with some folks demanding Mount Rushmore be destroyed as one of the Presidents depicted held slaves. The Muslims in Egypt also wanted to destroy the pyramids but failed. One of them has a large gash where many blocks of stone were removed. I just wish people would be more tolerant of older heritage and not try to rewrite or destroy history. A real pity so much of the city's heritage was destroyed. If anything is offensive nowadays it should be stored in a museum. Or turned into an outdoor museum. Tfs!

    Hi Murat

    Welcome back! You were missed. Good sharpness and excellent colour and saturation. Most of the info in the signs could have been printed on the reverse side of the ticket, but I know how heavy handed litigation can be in the US. No doubt someone would complain that they didn't see the info on the ticket & sue. I'd prefer to see a nice picture of a canoe instead of the signage, but it is what it is. Tfs!

    Hi Mariusz,

    The small copse of tall trees in their own private walled compound can be viewed in two ways, not only a prison, but a refuge from foraging animals, chainsaws & illegal logging. The bg peak is a superb focal point. Tfs!

    Hi Lars

    Smart choice of a vertical format to accentuate the height of the ancient Egyptian Obelisk. The fg Chinese tour group look worn out already! Perhaps they are Korean or Japanese. One of the few Rome attractions I missed. Tfs!

    Good sharpness and wonderful silhouettes of the the fg tree which nicely frames the bg. The repetition of the bg trees on the horizon add interest. I hope for better times ahead for the USA.

    Such a pity this gate was fenced off. It was possible to walk through all 3 arches in 2013. The Colosseum provides and impressive backdrop. Good colour and sharpness. Tfs!
