    Hello Ike

    The rust red patches contrast well against the gray-blue hues to give a pleasing warm cold color contrast. Effective tight framing and good sharpness. The compass like structure adds interest. Tfs.

    Hi Alex

    The fog and mist have imparted a moody and atmospheric look to this image and the smoke from the old steam train is hardly noticeable. A soft diffused light with fantastic sharpness. Well framed and composed. Tfs.

    Hello Arunava,

    Good textural details in the domed roof and wonderful warm cold color contrasts between the yellow and blue. So sad what has happened to Nepal. I was lucky enough to visit twice in 2000 and again in 2002. Tfs.

    Hello Angel,

    Smart choice of a vertical format with the 2 building sides at right and left nicely framing the bg scene. A good exposure on the bright highlights with excellent colour and saturation. I like the high pov. Tfs.

    Hello Alexandre,

    The aperture priority setting and long 20 second exposure has given nice starburst patterns to the light and motion blur of the fog. Good nocturnal shot with excellent sharpness.

    Hello Malgo,

    It finally dawned on me that the name of this town is A. Have you ever been to the town in Wales with the longest name in the world, as Bangkok is usually abbreviated to City of Angels. This would complete a trio. The upper Californian shot looks tropical in comparison. Tfs.

    You're right, it is very photogenic! Nice symmetrical reflections of the multiple arched bridge in the bg with wonderful sharpness and color saturation. The boats in the fg add depth. Tfs.

    Ciao Lisa

    Very much depends on the heat and crowds and condition of the walking tracks as to how far I am prepared to walk. The long time exposure has given a smooth silky motioned blurred texture to the water. Tfs.

    Looks similar to the Trevi fountain. Impressive sculpture with superb sharpness and a nice warm cold color contrast between the yellow and red hues and the blue sky. Punchy light contrasts and splendid density levels. Tfs.

    Hello Ike,

    I spent a couple of days in Lisbon but missed this building. Good sharpness and the people add scale and animate the scene. Nice repetition of the fluted, inverted, jelly-like turrets. Tfs.

    Good sharpness and the texture of the dogs fur matches and compliments that of the waving yellow grass, which sets up a nice warm cold color contrast with the blue sky. Tfs.

    Looks similar to the scenery in southern Bavaria or northern Austria. Good sharpness, saturation & density levels. The elevated vantage point works well here and the tower anchors the shot. Tfs.

    The warm red and pink colors of the building contrast well against the blue sky. Good sharpness and I like the angled pov showing 2 facades. The blue and red flowers enhance the warm cold color contrasts. Tfs.

    Hello Burak,

    I am hoping to see this later in the year. Good density leves that have given excellent saturation and light contrasts, with solid blacks and clean whites. Well composed and the 4 camels resting with their colorful saddles make a good fg focal point. Tfs.

    Nice repetition of the boats and their diagonal axis adds dynamism. Good sharpness and well composed using the rule of thirds. The cloudy sky has allowed a pleasant, diffused light. Tfs.

    Missed this one. The open door of the arched fg gate allows a tantalising glimpse of the bg interior walls with the stone path adding good lead in lines and perspective. The tremendous clear blue sky is marvellous. Tfs.

    Hello Muhammad,

    This was taken some time ago as the pools are now closed to tourists. I visited last year and they've constructed 5 artificial pools at the top for bathing. It's an impressive sight for sure. Good sharpness and the travertine terraces resemble cotton or snow. Tfs.
