    Bonjour, Jean

    The wide angled perspective in this excellent nocturnal shot of Pudong has been perfectly managed, by placing the vertical Oriental Pudong Pearl Tower in the exact centre of the image. Good sharpness and colour. Tfs!

    Bonjour Pierre

    The addition of the modern iron gates adds another dimension here. Perhaps to keep people out and safely remaining on the designated trails? In the bg is the shrouded culprit of the 79 AD eruption. Tfs!

    Hello Jorge,

    You at least got to see this spectacular national park. I was running out of time and flew direct from Shanghai to Guangzhou instead of busing it back. It's magnificent in all weather conditions and reminds me of the 3 sisters in the Blue Mts behind Sydney. Tfs!

    Hello Miguel,

    This camel is a far from the hot sands of the Thar Desert. Good sharpness and upward shooting pov with the balloons at right adding a lively splash of colour. Tfs!

    Hi Benny,

    These rugged conical hills remind me of Machu Pichu in Peru, minus the Inca ruins of course. Good sharpness and I like the repetition of the neatly stacked hay-bales dotted around the fields. Tfs!

    Hello Benny,

    Lots of hairpin bends here! There was a place in South Korea with a road like this but I never got back there on a day when it wasn't raining or snowing. And another road in Albania near Dhermi is also amazing. Good sharpness and natural looking colour here. Tfs!

    Missed this one. The tower at left with its decorated upper section and crenelated crown dominate this attractive old stone cathedral. Good sharpness and shadow detail. Tfs!

    Hi Lars,

    Lots of traffic lights and they nearly all seem to be red. This section of the city seems more user friendly for pedestrians than motorists. Good sharpness and perspective. A nice architectural mix of modern and neoclassical buildings. Tfs!

    Hello Mesut,

    I agree with Gert, that this is a happy beginning. The lira notes pinned to the sashes are a new one on me, not that I attended any weddings when I lived in Turkey. Adequate sharpness and excellent lighting. Tfs!

    Hi Abmdsudi,

    Superb lighting here which has given relief and texture to the sand on the fg beach. Good sharpness and nice orange tints in the sky that contrast well with the blue patches. The fishing boats add focal points. Tfs!

    Marvellous reflections with good sharpness, colour and saturation. Nice repetition of the evenly spaced trees. Splendid perspective from the converging sides of the canal. Looks like a shot John might have taken! Tfs!

    Hello Malgo,

    Missed this one. An incredible sight of the rats being fed at the temple dedicated to them. It seems that there are some elements of Buddhism within Hindu beliefs, such as reincarnation. I knew cows are revered, but not rats. Tfs!

    Hello John,

    I'd imagine that walking on stilts is much more difficult than it looks. Good capture of the passing parade with vibrant colours and perfect sharpness and exposure. Nice to see them dressed in the colours of the Belgian flag. Tfs!

    Hello Mariusz,

    This looks a little like the coast of Western Australia around Albany or on Rottnest Island. It has the same emerald colored water too. Pretty to look at, but uninviting to swimmers. The lighthouse makes a good focal point. Tfs!

    Hello Mariusz,

    It was an unexpected sight to see a big cathedral on a small Spanish island in the Mediterranean Sea. Good sharpness and nice depth and layering here helped by the gnarled old trees. Tfs!
