    Bonjour, Benny,

    The sunshine glinting off one of the panels at top right adds interest to this shot and nicely breaks the repetitive patterns. Good sharpness and framing. I like the reflected blue skylight in the many windows. Tfs!

    Smart choice of a vertical format with good use of a shallow fg dof and excellent bg sharpness. The backlight has been well managed. The people on the roof at top right add scale. Tfs!

    Hello John,

    I am glad the Moroccan terrorist at Brussels train station was neutralised before he could harm any others and that his nail bomb failed to injure anyone. Anyway, the man in the orange vest contrasts well with the blue sky. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. Tfs!

    Hello Murat,

    I've seen Maiden Tower many times crossing back and forth between Harem & Eminonu, but the boat is far way from the tower and it's difficult to get a good zoom shot. Good sharpness and the fg red and blue umbrellas add a wonderful warm cold color contrast. Tfs!

    Hi Jorge

    When I was in Umm Qays in the far north west of Jordan I could hear the distant rumbling of thunder. Problem was there wasn't a cloud in the starry sky. Turned out it wasn't thunder at all, but the Russians bombing ISIS targets in the Syrian section of the adjacent Golan Heights, which is still part of Syria. The tank here reinforces the sad current history of the region. Tfs!
