    Hello Rob,

    It looks like something out of the old Matrix movie. Good warm cold color contrasts and excellent repetition of concentric geometric patterns and shapes. Tfs!

    I like the symmetrical reflection of the small bird in the water. Good sharpness and excellent color and saturation. I like the repetitive patterns of the overhanging bare branches. Tfs!

    Hola Pedro,

    A wonderful shot of the St Anna convent in the old Spanish colonial style, with good sharpness and natural looking colour. I like the upward pov and repetition and layering of the 4 steps. Tfs!

    Hi Burak.

    I haven't been to San Diego or New York, but I would place Honolulu #1, then San Francisco, Durango or Colorado Springs as 3rd and Sante Fe or Tucson in 4th place. I would have liked to have spent more time in LA but was running out of visa time and went to Yosemite instead. Oh and a nice shot of the elongated pyramid shape of the TransAmerica building! Tfs!

    Wonderful graphic elements of dark shadows of the palm tree & lamppost against the bg white wall. Good sharpness and nice inclusion of the fg lampost as a reference point and focal point adding depth and layering to the compo. Tfs!

    Hello Silvio,

    Interesting swirling cloud patterns which are called Cirrus if I am not mistaken. Smart choice of a vertical format with superb sharpness and good colour and saturation. The reddish brown copse of trees adds interest. Tfs!

    Missed this one. Fantastic use of the fg path as a lead in line with excellent sharpness and superb colour and saturation. The twin red chimney pots contrast well against the blue sky to give a nice warm cold color contrast. Tfs!

    Hello Serghei,

    It's funny how many of the cool countries have red white & blue in their flags (or a combination like Canada or Japan), and here is no exception with the Union Jack. It adds place and context. The bg beehive shaped building makes a fine focal point. Tfs!

    Hi Malgo

    Funny, but the sand dunes of the Gobi Desert are also called the singing dunes. But they are hundreds of metres high (worlds highest in some claims) and too difficult to climb. I gave up about 1/2 way up. You take 2 steps forward and slide 1 step backwards downhill! Tfs!

    Hello Mariusz

    I have been there but I wasn't really happy with any of the images I took. I would have liked a tripod and fewer crowds of package tours to get a really good shot but it was not to be. I was also on a package tour from Krakow and had a limited amount of time. The b&w rendition works well here. Tfs!

    Hello Noel,

    The castle flagpole would have made the ultimate selfie stick! Shhh! Don't tell anyone or they will all be doing it as the latest craze! The clear blue sky makes an excellent backdrop. Good sharpness and the floodlight and cctv fixtures add a touch of modernity to the ancient bg castle. Tfs!

    Hi Lars,

    I have also had the same problem at times and yes it is annoying when another photographer won't move from a prime viewing position. Just recently I waited patiently beside someone snapping cheesy kitsch shots of someone holding and pinching the pyramids only to have them tell me to move out of the way because they wanted to try the spot I was in. Despite the recalcitrant man, it's a good shot of the bg church. Tfs!
