    Hello Ike

    Good timing to catch this fast moving bird in a stationery pose. Its iridescent plumage is eye catching. Excellent sharpness and the bird seems disappointed that the shrub is neither flowering nor providing ripened fruit. Tfs!

    Ciao Carlo,

    The passing tourist certainly adds scale to the giant bg poster girls. Good sharpness and excellent timing & framing. Nice graphism of contrasting dark & light tones. Tfs!

    Hello Murat,

    The red and white flag with the cross seems to be a St George Flag from England so perhaps an early missionary? They had wigwams at Yosemite so its nice to see other styles of native American dwellings. Tfs!

    Hello Abmdsudi,

    There is still enough shadow detail to make out the desolate desert landscape. A spectacular sunset with excellent colour & saturation. Good to include the magenta disc of the sun at right. Tfs!

    Hi Craig,

    I like Gert's shot of plan B, if plan A is unavailable. The blue & white Azulejo tiles adorning the church are magnificent. The blue sky backdrop reinforces the effect. Tfs!

    Bonjour Philippe

    The lichen and moss encrusted tree at right nicely frames the 2 fisherman on the shoreline. Good sharpness and nice textural details in the bark. The red fabridam barrage structure adds depth and layering to the composition. Tfs!

    Bonjour Nicolas,

    The thumbnail doesn't do this shot justice. It's not until you open it that you see the starburst yellow sun streaming rays through the mountain peak. Good sharpness and excellent framing and composition. Tfs!

    Ciao Silvio,

    The threatening rain and storm clouds in the sky seem set to send the last of the al fresco diners in the street indoors. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. Tfs!

    Hi Stephen

    I like the repetition of the x patterns in the half timbered houses and the sergeant stripes ^. Good sharpness and the zebra crossing and the posts along the sidewalk add perspective and lead in lines. Tfs!

    Nice repetition of the red roofs scattered around the forested green hills. Good sharpness and well composed placing the horizon line well away from the centre. The water bottle caught my attention for some reason. Tfs!

    Hello Stephen

    Good idea to convert to b&w as I know subway has garish colors that instantly attract attention. The shadowed facades of the shops and the strong backlight would be other reasons. Excellent sharpness and the diagonal kerb adds dynamism. Tfs!

    Hello Lars,

    I like the inclusion of the moored boats in the canal and the superb warm cold colour contrast between the red roof & the blue sky. The parked cars in the street mirror the boats below. The windmill is well placed on the 1/3 axis. Tfs!

    I saw this bridge in the distance from the Damascus Gate but had limited time to get back to Amman. Nice to see a closer shot. Unusual perspective and reflections. Good sharpness and enigmatic angles. Tfs!
