I've never heard of a reverse clock before, so it's interesting to see this photo and read your note. The setting of this tower is lovely, above the town, with warm sunlight shining on it. It's also nice to have some people in the scene.

This row of houses is very charming. I like the green color of the three houses in the foreground; they match nicely with the surrounding greenery. This resort town must be very picturesque and have lots of nice homes and details.

What a colorful winter scene! The warm sunshine makes the colors even more alive. I like the sideways view of the men and horses. The decorative blankets on the horses are beautiful, and they should keep them warm in the cold, winter weather. :-)

Well I certainly love this type of photo. :-) At first I thought it might be the Willis Tower, but now I realize it's the John Hancock building. I like the reflections in the windows, and that giant X. Breaking down large buildings to smaller pieces or details is always fun.

This scenery is very dramatic. Having bouts of vertigo, I would definitely not cross that hanging footbridge! With the water slightly visible between the giant rocks, we can get a good idea of their height. That small, white house is in a very strange spot, and it must see some harsh weather being right at the water's edge.
Holocaust Memorial by ChrisJ (97920)

I like the POV in this photo, with a slightly diagonal presentation. Many people capture this memorial so that the space between the cubes is visible, but this view is very artistic. The colors in the sky are also beautiful. It's hard to write that the view is lovely when this memorial represents so much loss and pain. I can understand what you mean about the disrespectful behavior of visitors. It felt disrespectful when I saw tourists laughing and running around the 9/11 memorial, as if they were visiting an amusement park. We must never forget the Holocaust and all the innocent souls who suffered and died...

There is a timeless feeling to this photo - like it could have been taken many years ago. The small building is certainly showing its age, but it is very charming, and I like the small details, such as the arched windows. The greenery is very lush, and the people walking through add more bits of color to the scene. It's all very tropical and photogenic.
