    Hello Luciano,

    It looks like a modern day recreation of the famed Hanging Gardens of Babylon, although this neighborhood in Milan would be infinitely preferable to any in Iraq at the moment. Tfs!

    Hello Lars,

    I like the warm cold color contrasts between the yellow zebra crossing, the red roofed lighthouse and the blue sky and water. I found it strange that even when it was snowing in Canada there were no hot drinks available like coffee or hot chocolate, only cold soda pop and cola as seen here. Tfs!

    Witaj Ryszard,

    The blue cyan color of the quaint small bridge contrasts well against the bg of the red brick cathedral. A fortuitous catch of the passing boat on the right too. Tfs!

    Good use of a shallow dof with excellent sharpness on the contemplative boy. The repetition of the grilled fish in the fg adds interest. A fine daily life scene from the floating market. Tfs!

    Hello Nicolas

    Missed this one. The placement of the cloud resembles the ash spewing from an active volcano. Fortunately there are none in Switzerland! The orange and blue colours set up a good warm cold colour contrast. Tfs!
