An apt title with the cola cans and other scrap metal being collected by sampan. A superb daily life scene on the water village on stilts in Cambodia. Good sharpness, colour and saturation. Nice reflections in the muddy water too. Tfs!

A lovely blue hour shot from La Spezia. I passed through Cinque Terre briefly last year. Good warm vs cold color contrasts with the yellow illumination cast by the street lamps, with superb sharpness and saturation. The people add scale and context. Tfs!

I recall getting a lift to Bhaktapur by my hotel driver in Kathmandu. Good repetition of the colourful buses with a nice bg view of the Himalayan foothills. Excellent sharpness and litter seems to be a problem. A fine daily life scene from Nepal. Tfs!

Love the c shaped curve of the bay along the esplanade. Good sharpness and superb colour and saturation. Looks like Little Venice in Mykonos with out the mini tsunami waves smashing against the wall! The dining area looks lovely. Tfs!

Nice reflections in the water with good sharpness, saturation and density levels. The children on the canoe make a good focal point. Looking further back at top right we can discern even more canoes! The chateau castle makes a fine secondary focal point and the cliff at right frames the scene well. Tfs!

This reminds me of the old b&w tv show 'Casey Jones'! A good angled pov on the smoke belching locomotive all of which were removed as passenger train engines in Brisbane in the 1970s and replaced with electric trains. The red brick wall at left contrasts well against the blue sky. Tfs!

What a lovely mountain view and forest scene to wake up to every morning! The red terracotta tile roof contrasts splendidly against the blue sky. Good sharpness and well composed. I like the downward view across the roof into the valley. Tfs!

A nice blue sky that contrasts well against the red brick wall of the church at right. Good sharpness and punchy light contrasts. Glad you explained in the note about the flags. I thought the Swiss had invaded for a moment! Tfs!

Brings back nice memories of my balloon trip in Cappadocia,Turkey. Nice repetition & vibrant color. Superb sharpness and framing. The blue sky makes a marvellous backdrop and sets up a splendid warm cold color contrast. Tfs!

Fantastic sharpness and shadow detail in the fg with the haze mystery. I like the sunlit cloud at the top. Nice repetition of the trees decked out in their Autumn finery of gold. Interesting repetition on the bg hill of the vineyard terraces. Tfs!
