    Hello Erhan

    I'd never seen these buildings from Moscow. It's more the kind of scene I'd expect to see in several Chinese cities. Maybe it's just what lots of money looks like.
    Good picture, though. Congratulations & thanks for sharing it.

    A great daily life scene, Muhammad. Good composition, good timing to get the boy facing us and the man (his father?) at work in the background. A pity there is no note.

    Hello Peter

    A classic Bagan scene, thankfully without those annoying hot air balloons... Lovely, gentle colour tones.

    Hello Craig

    The light coming in from the right is a bit strong, but the originality of the pov is just great. This view strangely reminds me of those famous rice terraces in the far east.

    Deze torens mochten niet ontbreken in je foto's van Kortrijk natuurlijk. Mooi scherp, mooie dag, beetje jammer van de lelijke architectuur op de achtergrond, maar dat is de schuld van de bouwpromotoren, niet van de fotograaf. ;)

    Benny

    PS: Kortijk is weggevallen in de locatie bovenaan, waarschijnlijk een zoveelste probleempje hier. Ik heb dit ook al eens gehad, kan je gewoon herstellen via 'edit'.

    Bonjour Serge

    Impressive castle architecture. Good pov, classic take. Not unlike the one I posted just a bit later, but that's a coincidence, of course :)

    Thanks for sharing & enjoy your week

    Hello Elaine

    When travelling we only use public transport, so this scene is very familiar her. But what a great picture. Lovely colours, great characters & excellent framing and format. I like the one lady facing out towards us and teh otehr one with the pink ribbon hat. Strange to see only ladies in the queue. Then again, come to think of it...if we travel, it's usually my wife who gets the tickets too.

    Hello Malgo

    A stunning picture. The monochrome treatment has maximum effect, but I applaud your decision to include the original in the WS. That's brave.

    In the picture I like the left bottom part most, that line leading into the scene is terrific.

    Thanks for your note too. It's the kind of picture that needs it.

    Cheers & thanks for sharing

    Ciao Stefano

    Sad to see this gem hasn't received the attention it deserves. Well spotted, well taken. Without the wider view almost impossible to figure out what we're looking at. For those who know what it is, this picture is pure joy.

    Hello Malgo

    What terrific scenery! The landscape reminds me of some I've seen in western China. Flaming mountains and highlands...

    Great picture, I'd love to travel here some day.

    Mooie foto van een zicht/kerk die ik niet ken. Mooi weer, mooie framing. Vooral dat kleine torentje in het midden op de kerk vind ik sterk. Jammer dat het terrasje met de gele stoelen gesloten lijkt, ik zou daar wel iets willen gaan drinken.

    This is the China I love. Timeless, worn beauty, both in the people and the decor. Wonderfully impressive bricks.

    A terrific observation, Craig. Great contrast between the colourful artwork and the bl/w backdrop. Leaving out the sky is another plus.

    Best of all though, is the pov which turns the statue into something even more abstract than it is, really. Superb angle!

    Lovely street shot again, Don. Great tilt & I always love a meaningful text in the frame. Pay here! Subtle contrast between the down-to-earth message and the flowery decorations on the wall.
