    I know this pagoda well. Good warm red colors that contrast well with the cooler greens with marvellous reflections in the still waters of the pond. Tfs!

    Bonjour Serge

    Perhaps a tighter closer zoom with more sharpness may have been more effective but always better to get a shot than none at all! Good upward pov too. Tfs!

    Aptly titled with a wonderful warm cold color contrast between the red volcanic landscape and the blue sky. Good sharpness and framing. Not so many plants in this inhospitable environment. Tfs!

    These Segway riders are becoming popular all over Europe, but I still prefer to walk around the old city areas as they often have steps connecting upper and lower areas. Good sharpness and shadow play. Tfs!

    The artist who created this has a good idea of light shade and color as well as perspective. Good sharpness and saturation with effective tight framing. The butcher shop at left nicely leads into the outdoor fruit market. Tfs!
