    Hi Danos

    I can hardly wait until I arrive in Crete in mid July after the endless deserts of nth east Africa and the Middle East. When there are beaches they are fenced off from public access and views restricted by copses of trees & high fences. Unlike here :-) Tfs!

    Hello Burak,

    My condolences for the recent horrific events at Istanbul airport. Although I have been in the Anemone Restaurant adjacent I have not been up the Galata Tower itself. Good sharpness and warm cold color contrasts. Tfs!

    Ciao Silvio,

    The attractive young woman adds scale to the field of yellow flowers and animates the scene. Good sharpness and saturation. I like the shallow dof and the sunlit fg contrasting with the shadowed bg. Tfs!

    Hello Benny,

    The Chinese characters in the bg add place and context. Immaculate sharpness on the relaxed looking fg cat with perfect density levels. The shallow immediate fg compliments the focus on the cat. Tfs!

    Hi Ike

    The blue, white and black tones work well together. I am off to the Dead Sea tomorrow. (Jordanian side). I will wave to you in Israel! Nice abstract type of shot with just enough info available to work out the setting of a harbour with yachts. Tfs!

    Hi Malgo,

    I have spent several days in Vilnius but don't remember this church. The red flowers and people provide scale with the large statue at right. Good sharpness and a fanatastic warm cold color contrast with the blue sky. Tfs!

    Hi Malgo,

    The curving sides of the fountain add strong lead in lines towards the back. The red church looks great against the blue sky backdrop. I skipped Minsk even though it was only 90 km way from Estonia due to the steep 90 euro visa fee. Tfs!
