A superb upward pov and it looks Moorish in design. I saw similar courtyards in Morocco and Spain. I will try to find a google image of this palazzo and will let you know what I find. Good sharpness and the palm tree adds strong lead up lines. Tfs.

Wonderful symmetrical reflections in the tranquil water with a pleasant diffused light and good sharpness. Excellent colour and saturation. The red umbrella adds a nice warm cold color contrast against the cooler hues. Tfs.

They have similar tour buses in Vienna and Istanbul along with many other European cities. Good sharpness and excellent framing and color with good saturation. Its a good albeit expensive and slightly disappointing way to take in the sights. In Vienna the bus did not stop once and it was around 45 euro. I went back and used the Metro the following day to get to places I saw on the bus to actually get some photos of them! Tfs.

This shot reminds me of Meteora in north west Greece. The huge, weathered stone plugs dwarf the tiny red roofed cottage at left, which adds scale. Good sharpness and effective tight framing. Excellent textural details. Tfs.

Effective tight framing on this section of the audience with excellent sharpness and nice use of a shallow dof. The colorful clothing is eyecatching. A pleasant diffused light and the motion blur of the applauding hands animates the scene. Tfs.

It looks cold, and the bare poplar trees hint at a long even colder winter ahead. The sunlit hill in the distance makes a nice focal point. The interesting fg ruins of stone walls remind me of the Hatussa Hittite ruins east of Ankara. Good sharpness and framing. Tfs.
Jaisalmer Fort & PInk Sari by nikkitta (15824)

I like the striking warm vs cold color contrast between the yellow red fort and the blue sky. Good sharpness and the fg women in their colorful saris animate the scene and provide scale. The men at far right on their bikes and the stray dog add further life to the scene. Tfs.

Lovely warm cold color contrasts between the red jacket, yellow bag and the turquoise water and blue sky. Good sharpness and punchy light contrasts. The tongue of land and part of the fishing village top right add depth and layering. Tfs.
Le Parlement du Canada by Sergiom (64117)

Missed this one. Wonderful colour and saturation with good density levels that have given solid blacks and crisp clean whites. The people on the lush green lawns animate the scene. Good sharpness and the clocktower makes a fine focal point. Tfs.
Poggio Lavarino by Silvio1953 (127002)

I like the opposing diagonals in this shot which add dynamism and some perspective. The minimalist colours work well here. Good sharpness and effective tight framing and composition. The cross adds a nice graphic element against the lighter toned sky. Tfs.
