    Hi Lisa,

    great shot! could easily be the work of a super-realist painter whose name escapes me. Classy work indeed.

    Cheers,

    Hi Gert, I don't visit TE very often these days, but good to see an image of yours from my favourite country on this visit. Shame travel there is no longer safe. Scan quality is good. You chose a good POV too, showing something of the surrounding agriculture. Trust all is well with you. Cheers, Steve

    Hi Ian, not often that you see an image of the pinnacles without the sun shining. The flat light seems to work quite well, preserving the details on the rocks and the dark clouds provide a dramatic background. Cheers, Steve

    Hi Andrew, Good to see you on the w/e. The little girls red clothes really grab attention, even before one is struck by the incongruity of them and the scene. I didn't know you could post higher res images - how do you do it?

    cheers,

    Hi Lisa, it's been a while since I visited TE, but this image makes the visit worthwhile. Some of the buildings seem to be not quite straight. Is that right or optical illusion? Colours are terrific. You chose a great time and location for the shot. Cheers, Steve

    Hi Trevor,

    Striking image. B&W works well with the high contrast between the white clouds and other elements. I like the compositon. Nature provided you with good material that day. Cheers,

    Hi Brian, Great idea, making a relatively uninteresting element, the old train track, introduce the more interesting old boat. Works well, only quibble I have is the slightly unnatural saturation especially of reds (that red thing just to the right of boat positively glows). Cheers, Steve

    Hi Patrick, great shot with very interesting composition. That we can't see the women's faces is unusual, but seems to work as given the other elements it isn't necessary to see their faces to know something of their lives. Cheers, Steve

    Hi Rosemary, great shot of this peculiar tree silhouetted by the sun. That some details of the tree are still visible is good. Also the contrast between the colour of the land and the deep blue sky works well. Cheers, Steve

    Hi Gert, I share your dismay regarding the current events in Syria. I find it difficult to reconcile with the seemingly peaceful, if nastily governed, country I found. The destruction of the minaret and covered market, one of my favourite places, is particularly depressing. Your shot captures well the type of activity going on in the market area. cheers, Steve

    Hi Rich, As someone that has tried many times to capture birds in flight, I reckon you did a good job here. Use of the building (what is that?) to balance the image and provide context works well. Certainly looks like threatening weather. cheers, Steve

    Hi Brian, the contrast between the orange/reds and the blue sky works well. The reds look slightly unnaturally saturated but nevertheless contribute well to the image. As others have said, the thin clouds are good too. cheers, Steve
