    Hi Ike
    This place looks almost dry and barren around this time, but how lovely seeing the blooming squills cutting into the scene bringing bit of liveliness while we get to enjoy other interest around and thr ruins in particular. Great work so natural wthout the inevitable pp spoiling it with over saturation and contrast- you see it as it is! Congrats.

    A fine shot definitely makes us to wander around to what looks like ruined buildings lurking in the background but the gompas in the fg rest the eyes nicely. The darker sky and the whole atmosphere add a bit of surreal and mysterious feel and indeed a strong subject full of content made special by this treatment, although imho you have gone slightly overboard with the post processing. Great capture, tfs

    Hi Ourania
    There're sufficient interests, open space and colour combination with the fg boat to rest the eyes. The wonderful clouds create a natural framing above, turning the whole seascape a pleasnt scene to view. Congrats

    Hi Luis
    An idyllic rural scene and the sense of wide expanse well depicted within the lush green surroundings, Your viewpoint and focus reveal some good colours, clarity, detail and the overall contrast to the optimum with lovely play of fluffy clouds above which all together add liveliness to the shot. A peaceful spectacle nicely shot, Congrats

    Hi Noel
    I call this 'Praising the Sun' You did well to achieve the best composition using the three elements, namely the silhouetted entrance gate, the sun and the deep shadows in the fg. I like your thoughts with this challenging shot testing the exposure to the limit but the result is stunning with lovely bursting sun effect full of rich colour tones around, lifting this shot to an acceptable level. Congrats

    A serious shot in lowlight, what an elaborate decoration of the altar, an excellent subject in great colours and so well captured by you. Given the awkward circumstances, a very fine shot indeed. Excellent shot, Congrats.

    Hi Tiffany
    Dear deer... He seems like a good fella and so say all of us! A charming image with good detail and colouring that you can get so close to this endearing animal, I think you must have had some patience here but what i like most is the colour combination and what a contrast there. You are rewarded with a very fine shot, Congrats.

    Hi Agnes
    The harsh lighting is so often not good for landscapes shot like this, but you have to take conditions as they are. The distraction is obviously on the brightest areas which lacks of detail, so the less detail we see the more the attention is focused on the distraction. You did your best here, and my honest crit hopefully is acceptable to you. Congrats

    Hi Neyvan
    A very nicely composed peculiar lakescape and interesting geological features with stalagmite structures leading the eye into the shot. This is a very effective shot, good clarity and lovely colours and your narrative is useful not only can we appreciate this capture but learn about our world as well, thank you.

    Lovely capture of this mosque taken from low pov accentuating the perspective and vertical convergence with good effect. Colours look natural with immaculate detail which is well set off to grey sky. The lighting is not the best but well managed. Excellent capture, Congrats.

    Hi Gert
    What immediately strikes me first is her expression, another lovely candid shot from the ordinary live, and there's no doubt that this street vendor saw what you were doing and was quite happy about it! But sadly she did not appear to have many customers though. I love the brightness and colour of the cart and the well displayed wares so neatly arranged. A wonderful depiction of local life with greatest respect to her. Excellent, TFS

    A high quality shot Klaudio, bang on the money with the exposure and great dof of this gorgeous cheeky boy enhanced by some remarkable colours with lovely touch of sulphur crested yellow. A joy to look at have me smiling all the way through and lovely the way he was looking at you. I think this amazing bird must have given you hours of sheer pleasure. A very charming capture. Congrats
    P/S; Cockatoo in Malay is Burung Kakak Tua and the name brings back to the 60s. Anneka Gronloh a popular Indo-Dutch singer made the big time with sing-a-longs like Burung Kakak Tua, BengawanSolo, Nino Bobo. Her powerful voice, beautiful Eurasian looks - daughter of a Dutch KNIL soldier lived in North Celebes - Sulawesi, shapely kebaya clad figure and Dutch connections made her very popular in the Malay world then.....

    As with Xinjang, will upload when the time is ripe...
    Have a great day

    Hi Ike
    Something I love to see, because it shows a civilised attitude to life & sense of community and the peaceful environment they are in and nothing to rush about. The air of concentration in a casual relaxed manner is the winner for me and the viewpoint have enabled us to see his face displaying his natural jovial mood - the vital point making this capture unnoticed to your lens. The image also makes me want to look around within the tight crop, take a nose at the game going on and just generally take in the atmosphere and engage an enjoyable social interaction in the open air. You have taken advantage of the lovely morning light, bit of green neutralised and soothed the tones and cleverly time triggered. A great candid of human interest expertly done, Congrats.

    Hi Angel
    Another beautiful part of town scape, abound of details and good colours taken on a brilliant day with attention is drawn to the prominent buildings in the backdrop I like the inclusion of the fg as this lends this picture sense depth and perspective guiding viewer right thru the whole image.
