A fine panoramic shot of Jerusalem shot from a marvellous high vantage point. Wonderful contrast between the green park like fg at left and the more barren, desolate right side of the image. Good color, sharpness and saturation. Tfs!

These quiet little 'backstreets' or rsther canals of Venice I find equally attractive to the major sites on the Grand Canal. The gondola and the bg bridge make fine focal points in the distance. A good result in tricky lighting conditions. Merci!

A superb downward pov with the people adding both scale & context. The yellow steps at the bottom set up a nice warm vs cold colour contrast against the blue grey hues. Ornate work in the balustrades. Well framed and composed. Tfs!

A superb interior architectural shot that reminds me of a perched spider. Good sharpness and light levels. The flash has done its job well. Nice repetitive patterns in the brickwork. Well composed and the red brickwork contrast well against the dark navy blue in the bottom right. Tfs!

Good control over perspective with the vertical lines level throughout. Nice shadow detail with good sharpness and a superb warm vs cold colour contrast between the blue and yellow ochre colours. Good to have the windows open and closed at various stages. Tfs!

A superb daily life scene from India with the bright colorful saris of the women instantly grabbing attention. Good sharpness and saturation. An unbelievable amount of litter in the alley at left, contrasting with the people getting fresh water for tea. Tfs!

I am missing Melbourne after viewing this image. I used to go through Flinders Street Station many times, albeit a long time ago now. Nice repetition of the yellow / tan tent structures, which also contrast well against the blue grey sky. Tfs!

Ciao Cara Lisa,
A nice tribute. One of the Australian victims on MH17 was a relative of 2 passengers from Brisbane on flight MH370. Absolutely tragic. I love the repetition of the naturally occurring patterns and shapes in the eroded beach rock platform. A nice reflection with good sharpness and warm cold colour contrasts. Tfs!

Good tonal range with clean blacks and whites and nice repetition of geometric patterns and shapes, with good sharpness. The strong diagonal line adds dynamism and the sleek curves enhance the composition. Nice reflections to add to the effect. Tfs!

I wonder what archaeologists will make of this in 2000 years time? Was it a tumulus for a forgotten great Queen of England? An amusement park or some such. Fantastic greenery with agood upward pov. The people add scale. Tfs!
