It seems as the sunny weather definitly helped the dutch to "expand". A very nice and surreal shot. I like the contrast between the dutch traditional clothes and the palm trees in the background.
Personally i feel that you overdone the background highlights a bit, there's a visible halo surrounding the woman. But still a great shot!

Now thats the kind of politics I truly like and support. Imagine a G20 summit where the 20 most powerful politicians of the planet sitting around a table and sharing endless amounts of big beer bottles, the world would be a more peaceful place indeed! Well, this november is the next summit here in Korea, I'll see what I can do...
Back to the picture: Another wonderful piece of yours, love the sharpness of the man in front and especially love the expression of the one in the back. And once again, the high ISO did again! Well done!

I really like this picture, especially the message behind the photo. It seems to me as the picture really is matching the present political situation of Iran, very dark and shady. And at the end of the tunnel the green (revolution?), inshalla.

Very classic shot! Colors and sharpness are very well balanced throughout the picture. And the sunlight makes the best out of the beautiful brown/white fur. Personally i would have captured the whole shadow, but that's a matter of taste.
When you see Swiss cows in such environment it's not a suprise why the whole world is praising the mountain cheese from this country.

This is a really interesting stone formation, it's really hard to figure out if it goes up or down. The color is fascinating, especially because of the "camouflage" man! It took me some time to realise that there is a man. Great picture, I like that you didn't capture the horizon.

This is an unbelievable shot. Really well captured, you probably had good patience. The plane is really sharp and the smoke indicates that it did some crazy maneuvers. And the "pilot" gives the picture a comical touch thanks to his standing position. I like it!

The photo works perfectly for me. Seems as you've used a fisheye lense for the shot. The tilted sky really underlines the dynamics of the boy's action, plus the boy is pretty straight compared to the skyline which just adds to the quality of the photo. Well done!
