The outdoor cover is unusual and reminds me of a similar tent-like structure protecting Göbekli Tepe ruins in Turkey from rainstorms and hail. I like the contrast between the ancient ruins of the theatre and the modern bg city of Zaragoza. Tfs.
Rope and rusty boat reflection by ikeharel (63019)
ChrisJ (104387) 2015-09-02 14:23
Spotted this one in your gallery. A marvellous reflection with good warm cold color contrasts between the rust-streaked boat and the blue cyan water. Superb sharpness and the tight crop works well here. Tfs.

Effective tight framing with good sharpness and light contrasts. Superb color and nice graphic elements of contrasting light and dark tones. Interesting details on the balconies of clothes drying on metal racks. Tfs.

A fantastic alpine shot with good sharpness and color saturation. I especially like the warm cold color contrast between the orange tinted snowcapped mountain and the blue sky and shadowed flanks of the peak. Tfs.
Paris - 2012 - 102 by pierrefonds (60434)

Good sharpness, although I might have cropped about half of the fg road which in my view does not add a lot to the composition. Love the reflection in the window at right. The activity around the snack bar / kiosk adds interest. Tfs.
Across the pond by Didi (59114)

I like the warm sunlit pylons and posts contrasting against the deep blue sea and cyan sky. The dual sides of the curving pier add marvellous lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective. The people at the back are well positioned over the vanishing point. Good framing, color, saturation and sharpness. Tfs.
Castle of Leiria by Matyas (9162)
ChrisJ (104387) 2015-09-02 14:05
The red roofs and the red trim around the doors at left contrast well against the blue sky. Good sharpness and density levels. The people animate the scene and provide scale. The hilltop Castle of Leiria makes a superb focal point. Tfs.
Angel Weeping by mcmtanyel (16719)
ChrisJ (104387) 2015-09-02 13:59
Excellent graphic elements of the lighter toned Angel statue against the darker bg of the partly shaded fan palms. Good sharpness and you did well to exclude distracting tour groups in such a crowded theme park. Superb colour, saturation and framing. Tfs.
Around the lake #3 by tatadalou (7289)

If you're ever in Sichuan China, Jiuzhaigou is a similar, and even more spectacular locale than this.
Kicking myself now I did not go when I was living in eastern China. Good sharpness and incredible clarity of the water with a wonderful turquoise tint. Tfs.
Decisions, decisions... by daddo (25855)

Without a doubt Australia has come a long way since the limited option of steak and 3 veggies of the 1950's. Even in the 1960's Chinese food was a novelty. I have to laugh when my bro in law complains there are too many Indians in Australia. Nearly every week he eats delicious Indian food. 40 years ago you couldn't get decent Indian food, and now they are everywhere in the big cities, including cuisine from many other countries like Thailand, Vietnam, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Japan, Mexico, etc etc. The choice of bread depicted here is yet another example of the huge variety of foodstuffs now available, and dont get me started on the coffee! Tfs.
