    Bonjour Serge

    Good grief! That sure is a lot of snow. They only ever get light snow in Seoul although in Sokcho on the east coast they sometimes need the army and army reserves to remove it all. There was 40 cm of snow in Sofia Bulgaria in January 2016. The most I have ever seen in an urban area. Looks pretty when its fresh. The men add scale. Tfs!

    Hi Murat

    As far as I know there is no problem leaving the US for Istanbul from the US on an international flight with Turkish Airlines eg. Not sure about American aircraft rules? The problem is coming back from Istanbul to the US. I know I would not want to check my camera through as cargo. The luggage sometimes falls onto the tarmac and contents get damaged. Plus I would be worried about theft. Back to the winding road in the snow shot, the zig zag pattern adds string lead in lines and perspective. Good sharpness and framing. Tfs!

    Witaj John!

    He looks to be a happy musician with an infectiuos smeile. Effective tight framing on the accordion player with nice use of a shallow dof and selective focus. Tfs!

    Salut Nicolas,

    When I lived near the DMZ in Korea I was always sad to see the migratory birds abandon their summer nests in November and fly south for the winter. Like losing old friends. But they return in Spring. Here I like the minimalist composition and use of three. Tfs!

    Hello Alexandre,

    Fantastic aerial shot of the relatively narrow isthmus. Parents can opt to take small children to the calmer waters of the beach at left although it seems the boats have staked a claim right along the shore. Tfs!

    Hello Stephen

    Looks like Bozborun in Turkey where yachts moor for a fraction of the 100 euro + cost at nearby Marmaris. Nice reflections in the rippled water with good sharpness and color. Tfs!

    I like the repetition of the black star motifs in the stained glass windows. Good sharpness and well managed low light levels. I like the angled pov too. Tfs!

    Bonjour Philippe,

    Fantastic symmetrical reflections with good sharpness and nice inclusion of the water birds at far left. I like the tiered wooden dividing fence. The narrow treelined peninsula jutting out into the water adds perspcetive and lead in lines. Tfs!

    Hello Lars

    I spent a few days in Uppsala and seem to recall there were 2 cathedrals. I like the extreme wide angled view although it is not everyone's cup of tea & they try to correct the tilt at the sides. But here the central vertical line is perfectly straight so no big drama. Tfs!

    Hello Gert,

    A superb daily life scene from Armenia of the 2 neighborhood women chatting. I only got to peer across the border at Ani from the Turkish side. Relations between Armenia & Turkey are still very frosty almost a century after the massacres of the 1920's. It is even forbidden by law to mention the word 'genocide' in Turkey. And of course the border remains closed. Armenians avoiding flying through Istanbul and head through Moldova, Ukraine, Bulgaria and Romania instead when heading west to major cities in north west Europe.

    Hi Jorge,

    Another nice shot from Meteora despite the dull grey weather. If this is the first monastery you come to as the road starts to ascend upwards I have been inside of it and walked up a few flights of stairs to the terrace. The red roof adds a warm cold color contrast. Tfs!

    Bonjour, chère Malgo,

    I guess the parents figured the bright red shirts make their wanderlust boys by the fountain easy to spot. They contrast well against the grey blue tints. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. Tfs!

    She is probably getting tired just thinking about cleaning up all the mess her husband and children are making! And has given up trying to get them to clean up after themselves! Nice repetition of the red shuttered windows at right. Tfs!

    Bonjour Christiane

    I had planned to go island hopping from Sicily to Sardinia to Corsica then back to the Italian coastal mainland in the north, but it was too ambitious a plan & would take more time than I had available on my Schengen visa. So I just went from Sicily back to Naples & on to Bologna. Tfs. I like the red and white lighthouse contrasting against the blue sky.

    A distinctive red salmon colored town hall that contrasts so well with the blue sky backdrop. Good sharpness and a fine upward pov. I like the decorations and artwork adorning the building. Tfs!
