    Fantastic ornate decorations of the exterior of this church with good sharpness and lovely splashes of colour from the flower boxes. Good composition too. Tfs!

    Hello Bev

    Not just the width, but also the height. It's a proven fact that people from 500 years ago or more were smaller in stature, lived much shorter life spans and had poorer diet and health. This armor looks more suitable for a 5 foot 6 inch warrior, rather than any fighter today over 6 foot. Or 2 metres.

    Hi Luis

    I like the warm dappled light and superb shadow detail. The mounted stone chalice is intriguing. Good framing and composition placing the obelisk off center. Tfs!

    Hello Pavel,

    Lucky I know staro means old and novo means new, and this is indeed a nice contrast between the old dilapidated houses and the modern apartment block. The building at right appears to have suffered a fire at some stage. Tfs!

    Hello Murat,

    Good use of a shallow dof to isolate and emphasize the fg golden prow of the boat. Reminds me of some ornately decorated longtail boats from Thailand. Tfs!

    Hello Rob,

    The psychedelic cyan bg is certainly eye catching in this shot. I can sort of vaguely remember the moving changing patterns much like a primitive laser light show. Good inclusion of the people & their shadows. Tfs.

    Intelligent use of a wide angled lens placing the verticals centrally. Good sharpness and the dramatic pose of the statue adds power and strength to the composition. Tfs.

    This is the Lijiang I remember. Wonderful canals running through the town with quaint wooden houses. I was there in winter though so no colorful flowers as seen here. Tfs!

    Fantastic symmetrical reflections in the canal with the 2 kayakers animating the scene. Good sharpness and nice repetition of the moored boats along the canal. The sweeping curve of the watercourse adds lead in lines. Tfs!

    Dag Lars,

    Maybe all these pink flamingoes were sheltering over in Seattle waiting for Hurricane Irma to pass Florida? Good sharpness and light contrasts. Effective tight framing and cropping. Tfs!
