    Bonjour Christiane

    A fine relaxed nature scene. The boat is a good element here.

    Lovely, typical scenery of the old Tibetan parts of China. Great how the three lines are placed out: the road, the the river and the stone wall.

    My kind of territory!

    Great capture of light on the flank of the dune, May. I also like the way the shaded part up front balances everything out. Well captured!

    Playful composition and great deep blue colours. The reflection of the lettering is a superb detail.

    Good idea to leave lots of room for the bricks in the bottom half of the frame, Daniel. Top bit is in the shade, but light is still OK there. Interesting picture, well spotted.

    Bonjour Claude

    Sad days, indeed, as politics are getting taken over by populists who seem to be getting away with almost everything. I can't possibly imagine anyone believing this kind of slogan, then again the news tells me many people do.

    Colourful picture for a black and white slogan.

    Now come on, Iceland!

    Lovely soft and poetic picture, Ruben, and very Chinese. The half of the bridge included on the left is really special. The reflections are superb.

    Hello Klaudio

    Great picture and great note. I don't think I'd have dared to take this picture. Praying in the west is a private thing, and I wouldn't have wanted to disturb the man in such an intimate moment.

    A surrealist referendum, a mind-boggling outcome, impossible to fathom just what the consequences will be in the long run. For Europe, in the long run, I hope it might be a blessing in disguise. But no one knows.

    Hello John

    Many cities call themselves "the Athens of this", "the Venice of that"...but I had never heard of an Edinburgh parthenon. It's great to read about it in your note.

    The picture is terrific too. Great pov with that tree sticking in and the position of the people on the monument, especially that one guy standing on the right, probably a teacher or guide. The view of the city in the bg below is another good feature. Excellent sharpness and textures on the monument as well.

    Benny

    PS: Aftr that surrealist referendum, I hope Scotland (just like Ireland) can now leave old England behind.

    Hi Jan

    Great how the graffiti adds to the scene. It's as if the man on the right is balancing something magical on his hand.

    Great how the red one stands out among the pastel coloured other ones. This would make a terrific book cover. Now let's write that book!

    Amaazing orange light and a good frontal pov. But it's the light that really does it here. Congratulations!

    Good documentary shot, Ruben. The picture has a somewhat weird, candid feel to it. I hope you bought something off her.
