    Hello Costantino,

    Effective tight framing with no wasted space and excellent depth and layering with the fg fishing nets drying in the sun. Striking warm cold colour contrasts between the red prow and blue sea. Tfs!

    Ciao Paul,

    Thailand is worth repeated trips. Chiang Mai in the north which has similar architecture to Kanchanaburi can also be used as a gateway to Kunming in China if and when flights resume. Lopburi for the monkeys, Ayuthhaya and Sukhothai for historic ruins, Ko Samet and Ko Samui for tropical beaches lined with coconut palms, Ao Nung / Railay Bay / Phang Nga for impressive rock formations, Hua Hin for good seafood on the piers, Mae Hong Song for the long necked women & Arunyaprathet for a gateway into Cambodia for Angkor Wat. I have seen most of Thailand but not all of it. Khao Yai National Park is one spot I've yet to see. Tfs!

    The quaint wooden bridge and stone pathway add nice lead in lines towards the bg houses. Good sharpness and the churning waterfall at right is a bonus. Tfs!

    Martin Luther was also responsible for the rise of iconoclasts who destroyed thousands of statues and works of art in cathedrals across Europe. You had ideal weather. I wasn't so lucky. Tfs!

    Colourful murals depicting the past life of the port of Belfast as a shipbuilding centre. I wonder if they got any free samples from the Whiskey factory. Probably not. Tfs!

    Hello Ronny,

    Sounds like my kind of place. Being cold at night is a welcome luxury in Morocco. It was 45c in August in Erg Chebbi and 30-35c at night when I was there. Spent as much time in the swimming pool as possible. A good elevated pov overlooking this charming green oasis in the valley. Tfs!

    A colourful collection of rocks at Portrush, many with text as well. Certainly an improvement on the drab grey bg rock. Good to include the roofs at top right for context. Tfs!

    Hello John!

    Fantastic reflections in the mirror like surface of the canal with good sharpness and wonderful repetition of the evenly spaced trees. Excellent colour, linear perspective and saturation too.
