    Bonjour, Nicolas,

    I like the simple patterns of the fields and the grey diamond shape of the ploughed earth. The cows add an element of repetition top right. Tfs!

    Ciao Silvio,

    Amazing repetition of the patchwork quilt patterns of the fields from this high vantage point. Good sharpness and the para-sailor in the fg adds a great focal point and splash of colour. Tfs!

    Hi Ike,

    I never made it to Lake Como. Looks like a well worthwhile detour. Nice to see how the rich and famous live. Must have been an interesting boat tour. Good scan from 2001! Tfs!

    Bonsoir, chère Cricri,

    The meandering pathway and green hedges add superb lead in lines towards the palace. Good sharpness and framing. I like the winged statue at right. Nice repetition of yellow roses at left. Tfs!

    Privet Serghei,

    I had one of these parked outside my hotel in Geiranger Fjord, Norway. Quite strange to be on the 7th floor of a hotel and to be looking into the 7th floor of a parked super liner offshore. Good sharpness and color. Tfs!

    Hello Malgo

    Hope you were careful. Some of these wild monkeys can be quite vicious. Old ladies walking up Emei Shan carry sticks to fend them off. But here it appears to be inquisitive and more docile females and their young, rather than the aggressive males showing their teeth and snarling, that I encountered. Didn't have a stick so just kept my distance. Tfs!

    I like the wide angled, panoramic crop and the superb symmetrical reflections. Nice repetition of the metallic bollards along the quay at right. The boy adds scale. Tfs!

    Effective framing with no wasted space and a superb warm cold color contrast between the green cyan bridge and the red facade of the 'Jacks' building at left. Good sharpness and an informative note. Tfs!

    Ciao Mariusz

    A good upward pov towards the summit of this looming volcanic peak. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the blue sky and the reddish magenta tint of the landscape. In Mongolia there were all sizes of lava bombs from ancient eruptions. Tfs!

    Hello Swapan,

    Aha! I have been on that train to Daj. My advice in winter would be to get a jeep up, and the train down to Siliguri Junction. My jeep skidded on the early morning frost and almost had a head on with another vehicle. As an aside, at first after stopping, they (both drivers) were yelling and swearing, then threatening to hit each other, then negotiating then parting with hugging & apologizing. Road rage Indian style! With a happy ending. Lots of smaller interesting hill towns to see on the 8 hour trip up the mountain. Tfs!

    Hello Ike,

    Nice to see such a pristine area without any obvious signs of human occupation. eg In south Korea there is always a bg highrise building, electic power pylons, roads, or some other jarring element in most landscapes. Here it really looks unspoiled. Tfs!

    Hi Pavle,

    A well composed shot of the attractive house and lawn at right, with wonderful artwork in the shadowed part of the roof. I like the diagonal line of the fence starting in the bottom left corner. Good sharpness and nice warm cold color contrasts between the red and cyan. Tfs!

    Salut Paul

    I saw in today's news there was a tour boat disaster sinking in the Medellen Reservoir, in Columbia so I am glad you weren't on it!

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/06/25/boat-colombia-carrying-150-tourists-sinks-reservoir1/

    Anyway I like the similar vertical shapes of the 2 fg trees and the twin vertical spires of the framed bg cathedral. Good sharpness and high pov. Tfs!

    Hi Swapan,

    Bologna especially and less so Padova (Padua) in north Italy have a lot of these arched walkways adorning the main streets and making attractive thoroughfares for pedestrians. Beautiful warm colours and the sole woman adds scale. Tfs!
