    Hallo Rob,

    The style of the woman's face reminds me of Japanese anime. One thing that did not impress me about the US was the overuse of signage. In Europe / Australia it's just no parking / no smoking and just the 1 sign, but in the US it's those 2 plus, no littering no loitering, no radios, no swimming, no fishing, no picking flowers, no canvassing, no posters, no no no and on and on and on. So much for the land of the free! Give me Europe any day, or Canada which is very similar to Australia only colder, although the people are just as warm and friendly, perhaps even slightly more so. Tfs!

    Bonjour Denis

    The terraces with their bananas rather than vineyards, remind me of Amalfi in Italy. Good sharpness and that bright central splash of purple / pink bougainvillea contrasts superbly with the blue sky and sea. Tfs!

    Hello Silvio

    A good upward pov on the picturesque hillside village. Good sharpness and I like the wide angled panoramic format. The trees changing color with brown and gold tones enhance the scene. Tfs!

    Salut Nicolas,

    I like the meandering reversed 's' shaped stream cutting its way through the snowy surrounds. The backdrop of conifer trees in full Autumn splendour is breathtaking. Tfs!

    Hello Pierre,

    Good diffused lighting and the recessed apse somewhat protects the statue on 3 sides. An excellent 3D effect and the comparison of the statue with the bg 2 dimensional painting at top left adds interest. Tfs!

    Hi Ian,

    This is a wonderful sight after enduring a 3-4 day heatwave in Brisbane with temperatures nudging 40c for 3 days in a row. I think the 4th previous day it was 36c. Today at last a lot cooler at 32c although there have been several brownouts due to a hailstorm with a lot of lightning strikes and golf ball sized hail over Tarong Power Station which supplies Brisbane.. I know from experience it has to be colder than -5c for the snow to fall and not immediately melt. In Sofia it was -19c. Good sharpness and graphism accentuated by the b&w treatment. The old stone house adds a focal point. Tfs!

    Hello Mariusz,

    Punchy light contrasts with good sharpness and a fine upward pov on the twin spires of the cathedral. Nice warm cold colour contrasts also between the blue sky and reddish yellow stone facade. Tfs!

    Hello Ian

    Let's hope they get some good rain soon. It's long overdue. This looks more like the countryside around Wagga Wagga, Albury / Wodonga & Goulburn in summer where such browned off grass is more normal. The 2 old trees nicely overshadow the ruined homestead. Tfs!

    Hi Gert

    A quite beautiful capture of this rugged and desolate coastline, with its steep cliffs and unforgiving shoreline for any boat or ship that gets too close. The manor complex on the hill looks like it might have been the residence of a lighthouse keeper at one stage. Good sharpness and natural looking colour. Tfs!

    Good sharpness & it looks like they are building a mini garage for the tri-wheeler taxi. A superb overview of this charming hill town in the Himalayan foothills. Tfs!

    Hi Ian,

    This old homestead looks like it was built to last. Good sharpness and a nice angled pov. The barbed wire might deter all but the most determined vandals. Tfs!

    Bonjour Jean

    The light was tricky here but you still managed to get a reasonable shot of the circular Temple of Heaven. The segment of white marble terraces at right completes the picture. I visited this stunning location in 2007. Tfs!

    A well composed landscape using the rule of thirds. Excellent sharpness and the cloud shrouded and snowcapped bg peaks make a majestic backdrop. The cruiseliner looks like a floating city. Tfs!

    Hi Mesut

    This is the area of Izmir that I stayed in. I didn't see any old ladies selling birdseed so this was a nice find for you. Good sharpness and at first glance she appears to be sewing. Now I am not so sure. An excellent daily life scene. Tfs!
