    Hi Nicou,
    Foggy air looks so good on this backlight! Lovely feeling of a forest walk on moist air which probably clears soon on this sunshine.

    Hi Malgo,
    Colours of this lake are simply charming. I also like mountaineous background and line of clouds over mountains. The air looks very clear.

    Hi Bev,
    I'm glad you show colour version too, as the locomotive is green, not black as I expected. Good angle showing both the old locomotive and well preserved station area. Cloud of smoke is also important part of steam engine pictures.

    Hi Luciano,
    Those rocks make wonderful natural framing to the logoon. Indeed colours are very special, and your flash worked perfectly.

    Hej Gert,
    There's so much East Asian character in this view. Tightly built simple buildings with rusty roofs. Those boats have quite interesting design too. And you had good timing as the boats pass. High viewpoint is excellent.

    Hi Craig,

    It looks like a NY version of the bridge of sighs in Venice. Good tight framing and excellent sharpness. The 3 lanes of traffic aren't quite as romantic or scenic as Venice but we cant have everything, right? Tfs! Ps, Brisbane and Vancouver are about the same size, the people have similar warm friendly temperaments, and both cities are in the shadow of their larger cousins (Sydney Melbourne / Toronto Montreal).

    Hi Pavle,

    I like the horizontal, candy like stripes of the red and white church. Good sharpness and the small chapel at left mirrors the style and shape of the larger neighbor. Tfs!

    Hi Gert

    Fortunately for me I was born 1 year too early to receive the free gift of national service in Vietnam as the war ended in 1975 when I was 19. The water village scene here evokes memories of Venice or Suzhou. This area is prone to typhoons and some of those dwellings are only a few centimetres above the water. Tfs!

    Witaj Krzysztof,

    I might have cropped the ceiling at the top and the sofa and panel at the bottom for a tighter simpler shot, but this is fine as is. Good sharpness and a clever reflection in the mirror. Tfs!

    I like the sweeping curve of the road and green lawn at left directing the eye towards the back and around the blue flowers to the curved palace. The people add scale. Tfs!
