    Hi Mariusz,

    Almost a Mediterranean looks and feel with the bright purple flowers and sunny skies. Good sharpness and all that is missing is the bougainvillea and oleander trees. And the hordes of tourists! Tfs!

    Hello Jorge,

    Missed this one. Good fg texture and lighting with excellent color, saturation and sharpness. The bg palm tree rising above the fg palm adds a strong focal point and graphism. Tfs!

    Hello Christiane,

    I love the numerous splashes of color added by the flowerpots and the frescoed walls. Good sharpness and the external duo chatting and the woman coming up the stairs add scale. Tfs!

    Hello Piotr,

    I spent a couple of days in Berat. I thought it was worth the stopover. Good sharpness and excellent color and saturation with nice repetition of the Ottoman style houses. Tfs!

    Hi Ryszard

    A very unusual architectural style that somewhat resembles the Pristina library in Kosovo. Good sharpness and tight framing. Excellent graphism. Tfs!

    Hello Jorge,

    Looks a little like Mykonos. The reddish brown rock adds a superb warm cold color contrast with the blue sky. Good sharpness and nice repetition of the blue windows. Tfs!

    Hi Jorge

    This reminds me a lot of Milos, another volcanic Greek Island that has been dormant for centuries. An expansive view with excellent sharpness and the blue swimming pools among the white washed houses add a patriotic touch. Tfs!

    hello Murat,

    I was also thinking it looked like a prison. I have only ever been inside 2 prisons both times as a tourist. Fremantle in Western Australia which closed in the early 90's and Sinop prison which closed in the 1930's. Good sharpness and a pleasant diffused light. Tfs!

    Hi Serge

    The leopard looks totally relaxed and in no hurry to exert itself. Good diffused light and sharpness. I like the absence of bars and chicken wire so common in many other zoos. Tfs!

    Bonjour Philippe

    This reminds me of the Lee Garden dome in southern China. The vibrant, saturated colour contrasts well with the dull grey circular surrounds. Nice sharpness and a fine upward pov. Tfs!

    Hello Lars

    I like the ghostly repetition of the distorted 1986 Canada Place sails in the reflections. The Subway sign and the crowds attract attention in the fg. Good sharpness and framing with no wasted space. Tfs!

    Hello Beverley,

    The boardwalks in Australia are often constructed to prevent erosion from numerous 'goat' tracks made by people through the dunes who are not sticking to the main track, to avoid walking in the wet swampy terrain behind the dunes where freshwater 'floats' on top of saltwater, and to assist with a less steep incline up and down the dunes. Sometimes to prevent people damaging rare wildflowers too. Maybe all of these factors are also in play here? Tfs!
