    Hello Costantino,

    I like the 2 thatched parasols. Good sharpness and interesting cloud formations in the sky. Nice warm cold colour contrasts. Tfs!

    Ciao Abmdsudi

    Always saddens me to see Nepal before the 2015 earthquake. I probably passed this guardian lion in Durbar square several times. Good catch of the wistful looking lady tooo. Tfs!

    Hello David

    Decisions, decisions! I usually try to buy as little as possible because I am the one that has to carry it all around Europe. I sometimes post guide books and tourist brochures to my home address so I don't have to carry them around for weeks after I have left the countries. Good sharpness and a clean and well kept outdoor vegetable market. Tfs!

    Hi Luis

    I am glad you managed to find an attractive corner of Madrid. It's a difficult city to navigate, but with some hidden gems like this amongst the skyscrapers and endless blocks of factories and apartment buildings. Tfs!

    Hi Janusz

    A fantastic wild beach with no sign of cruise ships, condominiums or deckchairs for rent. The turquoise colour of the sea is amazing. Tfs!

    Nice to see the dog & cat coexisting happily. Good sharpness, color and framing. I like the downward pov and repetition of the stones in the square shaped fence. Tfs!

    Wow, 410 years old! It deserves to be a world heritage site. Good framing with the tree, which adds a graphic element with its dark tones. Tfs!

    Hello Loong,

    This crafty heron has worked out that the fish have to pass by it to get either upstream or downstream. They pounce with lightning speed as soon as they spot one too! A tremendous symmetrical reflection as well. Tfs!

    Hi Murat,

    Amazingly intricate tilework and marvellous repetition of patterns and shapes. Silly me, I thought these were old fireplaces revamped because of electricity. Good sharpness, colour and framing. Tfs!

    Hi Clark

    Plus the chances of seeing the Aurora Borealis so far south of the Arctic circle are much slimmer. I saw it in Tromso, Norway but didn't get any good shots like this. The auto setting kept zooming in & out trying to find something to focus on. In hindsight I should have used manual and set it on infinity. Tfs!

    Hi Mariusz

    The smaller greenhouse or orangery adjacent to the main building suggests it was once owned by one of the elite. The red brick building contrasts well with the blue sky. Good sharpness and the man at left animates the scene. Tfs!

    Hello Kasia

    S that's where the place name Cowes came from. There are so many British place names in Australia. Cowes on Phillip Island, Newcastle, Ipswich, Perth, Brighton, Warwick & so on. A lovely sunset with nice reflections and good sharpness. Tfs!

    Hi Brenda

    Fantastic reflections and good to include all of the mirrored skyscraper. The 3 ladies on 3 park benches add a central focal point in the bg. Good sharpness too. The green water plants add depth and layering. Tfs!

    Bonjour Pierre,

    Not the most exotic looking mosque I've ever seen, without its traditional minarets, but a nice modernist design and good sharpness, colour, framing and lighting. Tfs!
