    Hi Ray

    Your photo amply demonstrates one aspect of the US I really disliked. The signs everywhere, and the blunt, rude and discourteous threats in the fine print. eg, I saw one area in the South West USA, with: No parking, no smoking, no littering, no loitering, no loud music, no fishing, no swimming, no camping, no dogs, no picnics, no boats, no picking flowers, no canvassing etc etc. It's really all too much. In Australia, we are taught as kids to respect other people's property and be sensitive to other people's needs. So apart from no smoking there are few warning signs or threats of fines or towing. There are useful non threatening signs and maps directing you to locations where you can fish, swim, camp etc.
    Here in the USA, it's rammed down your throat. Land of the free? Really?

    Bonjour Luis

    Well framed and composed with excellent sharpness and vibrant color with superb saturation. The 2 paintings are bright and cheerful. Smart choice of a vertical format with the barred window completing a trio of square shapes. Tfs.

    Ciao Jean

    The backlight has been well managed with still good discernible shadow detail and no overblown highlights. Superb sharpness and nice graphic elements of contrasting dark and light tones. The people add scale and animate the scene. Tfs.

    Hello Silvio,

    2 images for the price of one with the snail at the bottom complimenting the butterfly on top. Good sharpness and fine use of a shallow dof. The yellow and red colors of the underwing at right contrast strongly against the upper wing color of blue at left. Tfs.

    Bonjour Pierre,

    I might have cropped about 1/2 of the fg road wich doesn't add a lot to the composition, imho. Good sharpness and the old green car is well positioned in the frame. I like the repetition of the parked bg light aircraft. Tfs.

    Hi Danos

    The temperature in Pristina is forecast to drop from 17-34c today down to 4-24c on Tuesday. Autumn & the end of Summer are not far off. A sweet memory during the colder days ahead. Excellent sharpness, color and saturation. Good graphism of the solitary thatched umbrella. Tfs.

    Fantastic symmetrical reflections in the mirror-like surface of the water. Good sharpness and I like the superb warm cold color contrast between the blue sky and water and the golden tower 'stem' of the stylised floated lotus flower. Tfs.
