Excellent work related portrait with calm green tones all over. Tight framing works well to reveal more of farmer's character. Interesting to see old John Deere in the country where one would expect huge and modern farming machinery.

Beautiful old city deep down in the river valley. Your viewpoint is excellent, sunshine is good and the trees are just getting autumn colours. I've read that there's quite a lot of cultural activity there too, thanks to university and all the students.

I guess it's better not to wait for a heatwave to get to the beach in that region, or you might miss the chance altogether. Very nice looking little town with light shaded houses scattered on that hill. Curving beach looks quite nice for activities you mentioned. There's so much to do instead of just roasting yourself on sunshine.

Wow, that's a quite an experience to see the Flying Fortress fly by so close! It was a huge machine for it's time. And your shot is technically perfect. Details are clear even on the shady underside. And very sharp to a rivet level, on a relatively slow shutter speed that shows propeller motion.

It is lovely looking lake. Swans, ducks and coots add interest to the foreground. Great to see the Monte Rosa so clearly far away in the background. I guess autumn and winter bring better chances for so clear air compared to summer months.

Joy of the little girl is just charming. And it also brings attention to the pigeons that so often go unnoticed in the cities. It is actually quite interesting to look at them and see how there is so many colour and pattern variations in the feathers.

It is amazing that the basic design of Harrier is over 40 years old. Progress of aviation was huge in 50's and 60's! This photo is excellent. All the heat distortion shows clearly how the aircraft hovers and hot gas rushes downwards. Mountain contour in the background brings it well visible.
