    Hi Bulent
    Great travel image, you captured the essence of the place so well. Both the human element with the beach goers, the colourful parasols and the modern architecture in the background and the surrounding nature with the mist and mountains. The biggest parasol in the foreground especially brings a strong sense of place into the photo.

    Hi Abmdsudi
    I just love such photos: beautifully timed and composed market scene with the goods in the foreground. Daily life photography at its best. The smoke creates heaps of atmosphere.
    Thanks for posting this series from Xinjiang, a few weeks before I may be visiting Kashgar travelling along KKH.

    Hi again Gert
    Great dynamic image with the boat "moving" across the image along a diagonal. It feels as if the image was taken by someone standing on the surface of lake. I like the traditional clothes.
    I forgot to say in the last critique, I love the WS photo with the fishermen - especially the reflection in the bottom right corner.
    Have a nice weekend

    Hi Gert
    Wow, what an amazing place. Makes me want to go to the airport and fly there right now (actually... easy to say with a brand new Chineses visa - yes, for the whole of China - in my passport...).
    Well chosen portrait format shows the immensity of the vertical wall, an impression amplified by the presence of human beings looking tiny in comparison to their natural surroundings.
    You may pretend it's not really a street photo but we all know the truth... you did have a street photo in mind, did you not? ;-)

    Hi Craig
    Well done on discovering and recording this beautiful location on behalf of TE. And what a challenge for us, UK members to go and photograph the rest of the undiscovered ones. I've got to check my shots of Scotland, England and Wales to see if I've got any locations not yet posted on TE... :-)
    You have chosen a great pov and obviously this couple think so too. They look like they come there often. What a place to sit and rest.
    To answer your question about stopover breaks: when you leave the airport during stopover you would normally have been checked in for the duration of your journey and issued all boarding passes (if both legs are with the same airline). So your hold luggage stays in the airport and you don't need to worry about it at all and also no need to check in when you return to the airport. Just go straight to security. So it's one queue less than when you start your journey. I still allow myself 2+ hours before the scheduled flight time just in case (and to do some airport shopping). :-)

    As always - well seen and executed. I just love the graphic qualities of this image, all the lines and shapes. The placement of the tall building inside the "triangle" is perfect.

    Hi Gyorgy
    There is a big difference between this image and "a typical postcard from Bratislava" you present in WS, in terms of mood, graphic qualities and the level of technical difficulty. Even though the postcard is nice and technically perfect. I really like the composition too, with the castle. cobbles in the foreground and superb timing for the cyclists.

    Brilliant portrait, great crop focusing on the man's face and expression. Excellent sharpness, detail, depth of field and neutral background.
    And above all... photos of tourists attractions are widely available everywhere; THIS is unique.

    Wonderfully graphic on the verge of abstract. The colour version in WS is great but the b&w is brilliant.

    Ps. Almost forgot - thank you for your workshops to my monk photo. I like the crop and the darker shirt. The only problem - men don't really wear dark shirts with longyi... but it doesn't really matter because from the distance he looks like another monk so it's fine. :-)

    This is surreal and looks as if the little boy had been shrunke and now running among everyday objects around the house. He also looks suspended in the air, his feet barely touching the ground.
    Also, your photo makes me think of the old animated film Yellow Submarine.
    Great work, I'm adding it to my favs straight away.

    Hi Abmdsudi
    Brilliant group portrait. I really like your viewpoint from above with the kids looking up towards the lens.
    As you say, kids will be kids, no matter where. It's only when we grow up we start realising who we are, what nationality, which family, which country or race. Or maybe forget who we are - simply human beings.

    Hi Benny
    Excellent observation from this off-the-beaten-path place. Well-spotted and taken. You included several important elements in the frame: the remnants of the Cultural Revolution, traditional lamp and an element of real human life of people suspended between tradition and history and the modern and rich China - not for everyone obviously.
    Have a nice weekend
