Man I got to get to Morocco before the easyjet crowd arrive! Look at what they are selling - starting to look more and more like touristy stuff, rather than something a local would buy. Visually that thin roof isn't working too well, but including it is the only way to get this scene. Well done.

Man that level of clarity is just crazy! The top half of the picture is absolutely fantastic, the lower half adds less - the goo at the bottom of the lake isn't visually interesting. But yeah, the mountain, sky and strong green colours - really hits the spot. Well done.

Lebanon is a hard place to photograph at the best of times I would imagine. It is a good choice for B&W. It could be the back streets of any middle-eastern city really, the clutter and unplanned building style is characteristic of the location.

I liked ducking into Ferdowsi station. The subway is cooler than the oppressive heat outside! All the streets around Ferdowsi square were all full of broken footpaths and concrete slabs when I visited earlier this year. The Tehran subway is clean and comfortable, although sometimes very crowded. There is nothing earth shattering about this picture, but with people, it has potential.

At first glace, I thought it was a railway station in India! I'm kind of disappointed it turned out to be something completely different. It does clearly have that modernized look about it. They have applied repairs or membrane to the brickwork as it seems to have lost some of its heritage authenticity, if it is indeed older than it appears.

Welcome to TE Sandeep. Capri is one of those locations that gets a lot of air time on TE. Like Santorini, Mykonos and other similar locales, it is certainly attractive and an excellent photographic location choice. I find the interest in this picture of on the left hand side with the cliffside and the structures on it just metres from the edge. Well done.
Backyard? by naga_laut (408)

Just think if they converted those things into houseboats, western tourists would pay a small fortune to go there! Still it is good to see tradition life on the water, an insight into the life of this village. But yeah it is hard to poke a camera into a stranger's home and try and have a look around. A good shot though - reminds me of some similar Mekong River photos. Well done.[+]

We don't get many posters from Australia on TE! Welcome. The subject matter I think is a fine choice. It is visually pleasing and hard to go wrong with the colour green. The shadows are always going to be a factor in a photo like this, but it is good to try and find ways to minimize their impact. Well done.[+]
